The question of next year's team
was one of imiortant moment
before the meeting, and it
was the sense of the directors that

a definite answer from Tighe as to
whether he will assume charge again

will undoubtedly be engaged. The
stockholders appreciate the fact that,
there is a popular demand for Tighe
as manager next year, and if it is in
their power they will see that he is
