[reporting the AA meeting 11/22] Manager William Sharsig and W. Taylor were present as delegates of the Athletic Club, of Philadelphia, but they took no active part in the meeting. Tim Murnane represented the Players' League Club, of Boston, which has applied for an Association franchise, and Hon. A. W. Thurman, of Columbus, also represented the interests of the Philadelphia and Chicago Players League clubs. … Sam Trott, of Washington, arrived in the morning and filed an application for membership on behalf of R. E. White, cashier of the Washington National Bank, and other Washington gentlemen. Mr. White agreed to furnish a heavy bond that the club would live out the season and fulfill its obligations. A telegram was also received from parties in Buffalo, saying that they were anxious to secure an Association franchise. The Milwaukee Club also applied for admission by telegram. These applications were referred to the committee on conference.
