The Black Stockings' Tour

The Black Stockings, the local colored nine, leave to-day for Rockford, Ill., where they will play Monday and Tuesday. Thence they will go to Detroit to play the colored club of Cleveland for the colored championship. From Detroit they go into Canada, playing at Guelph on the 25th, with the Maple Leafs of Hamilton on the 27th, and at London on the 28th. They will then visit Dayton, O., and several other cities in which engagements are not yet definitely arranged. The trip will occupy about two weeks. Henry Bridgewater has the management of the nine.
