The Request Of The Mercantile Public

Mr. Lucas on yesterday received a communication purporting to represent the views of the mercantile public and requesting that next Saturday's game be called at 4 o'clock.  That hour would be too late for this early in the season, but the time of calling the game will be changed from 3 to 3:30.  Latter on 4 o'clock will be the regular hour of calling the game.

Yeah, you have to hate it when work interferes with your ability to go see a baseball game.

One other Maroons related note:  The club had a practice game scheduled for the 17th against a team called the  Ramsey Mohawks but it was cancelled for unknown reasons.  Their next game would be the season opener.
