Date Sunday, January 18, 1874

This old organization, at its eighteenth annual election for officers last week, with one exception, re-elected their old officers, the exception being Mr. Alex. Samuells, who is too busy to be able to attend to baseball this year. Mr. E. W. Stafford was, therefore, chosen as president in Mr. Samuells’s place. Captain Ferguson will be well backed up with funds in raising a stock company team for the Atlantics for the coming season, and with a capital pitcher–not Rule–whom he as got hold of, he will have a stronger team than before. Barlow, Dehlman, and Pearce, are widely retained, and there is a probability of Hall and Pike returning to their old club. Arthur Allison, too, will also play with the Atlantics, and Mills, of Baltimore, to form the team. By a vote at the meeting in question it was decided to retain the old club title for the new team, instead of calling it the Brooklyn ten, as before proposed.

The Atlantic ten will be a “pony” team, including several fine young players, and a very promising pitcher. New York Sunday Mercury February 22, 1874
