Ellick Jumps Again

Joe Ellick has again jumped, having left the Reds in the lurch at Louisville and joined the Eagles. This makes the third time Ellick has played this trick; and all clubs should refuse to play any club with which he is engaged. At the beginning of the season, the Empire management paid his expenses to this city from New Orleans, and he left at Louisville, joining the Eagles. After playing their a while, he left that club unexpectedly, and engaged with the Reds, and now he has jumped them.
