Of the St. Louis Browns: Clapp and McGeary receive $2,500 each; Bradley, $2,200; Cuthbert and Pike, $1,800 each; Battin, Pearce and Dehlman, $1,500 each, and Mack, Blong and McGinley, $1,000 each.

The numbers come from an article that appeared in the Brooklyn Argus and has salary figures for every player and club in the League. The Trib, however, goes on to state that "every salary paid by the Chicago Club is wrongly stated, except one. The sums named may be more accurately guessed at as regards other clubs." So take the numbers with a grain of salt.
Just looking at the numbers given for the Brown Stockings, they don't seem right. I would have thought that Pike and Pearce would have made more. However, the total amount paid of $18,500 appears to be in line with what other clubs were paying.
