Ellick Goes Home Empty-Handed

Joe Ellick, the Kansas City manager, left for home last night without signing anyone. He came after McGinniss and Dolan, but both had signed before he reached here.

Joe Ellick is in St. Louis looking for players, but has come to a rather poor market, as the Western and Southern Leagues have taken the best of local players.
