Among tbe number so signed wero the three players mentioned ? Hodge. Collitlower and O'Flugnu. In tho case of [lodge the amount of rinlury was loft open, I agreeing to give him as much as any one else could, tint Unding that 1 could not meet the oiler of Mr. Sullivan, of the Houston toam, on account of our 8800salary limit, 1 released Hodge from his contract, although Uu offered to piny for $'200 less lor tbo Beason thuu Sullivau offered. In Colliflower's cubo nothing was Faid about salary, which hu agreed to leave to me, but nr bionbd a RECEIPT for advance money, ngrot ing to play with me during the season of 18! 5.
