[from Harry Palmer's column] Up to this season the question whether or not a good ball team as a member of some meritorious young organization could not put up a 25-cent game in this city and demand a part of the patronage the League team is now enjoying, and which it has enjoyed for years past, has often been asked. The failure of Morton's team to draw a paying attendance has answered that question most conclusively. Playing a much prettier game than Anson's team has been playing for five weeks past, its game occurring upon the same grounds, and its opposing teams well-manned young organizations from some of the most prosperous towns in the West and Northwest, the Western Association games in this city draw hundreds only where the League team attracts thousands.
