MONDAY. APRIL 5 1909.
WILL HAVE GOOD PLAYERS.
Brownsville "Fans" Determined
Have a Corking Good Team.
A meeting of the board of directors
of the Brownsville team was held at
the Commercial Club room yesterday
to select a manager and captain and
also determine how many players It
would be necessary to engage. It was
decided that the team would need at
least four salaried men and that
steps to secure them must be" taken
at once. It was decided to secure
"Dago" Pelligrini as one of the play-
ers and Bob McCHntock and D. H.
Cumming were authorized to tele-
graph at once and see what players
could bg secured. Sanr Bell was ap-
pointed by the committee as tempo-
rary captain and D. G. Cummins was
chosen as manager. Loufs Kowalski
being elected secretary and treasur-
er. About 137 per month has thus
far been subscribed towards the sup-
port of the team but after carefully
going over the matter it was found
that it will take at least $250 per
month to maintain the team. A com-
mittee from the board of directors
will further canvass the business men
and baseball enthusiasts ot the city to
secure the necessary amount. If you
have not as yet signed the list it is
now time that you were uoing so for
a good ball team means not only that
there will be some amusement for
Brownsville during the summer
months but a good ball team is an
advertisement to a town. Every one
almost can afford to give a small
amount monthly to support a team.
The list of those subscribing for the
support of the team will be published
within a few days. Mr. Cummins
the newly appointed manager has
stated that he will reserve-a section
of the grand stand for laides and
children who are unaccompanied by
gentlemen and that the best of order
will be maintained.
The Benefit Game Tomorrow.
Tomorrow afternoon the fat and
anti-fat baseball teams of Browns-
ville will cross bats at the ball park
the proceeds of the game to go to the
Brownsville ball team. That this will
be the game of th season goes with-
out saying lor each and every mem-
ber of both teams are baseball stars
and what might be termed "cracker-
jacks." It is hinted that members of
both teams may be -seen in their
backyards in the dead of night throw-
ing balls against their houses catch-
ing it on the rebound practicing
catching flies and it has even been
whispered about that one prominent
member of the "fats" has been seen
in the streets playing catch with the
small boys using a yarn ball. Those
who love a good game shotild not iail
to see the game tomorrow. Game
called at 3:00 o'clock. Admission
25 cent's; grand stand 35 cents.

DEATH pF 15. A. HOWLAXD.
Passed Away at Lyford Sunday Morn-Ins.
The death of Edward A. Howland
age thirty-five years occurred at Ly-
ford yesterday morning. His death
was due to pulmonary tuberculosis.
The remains were shipped to Chicago
yesterday for burial.
Mr. Howland was a prominent
young attorney of Chicago and a
member of the board of trade of that
city. He became afflicted with tuber-
culosis about two years ago. In the
autumn of 1907 he came to the Low-
er Rio Grande Valley in the hope the
climate would build him up. He re
mained several months and had ap-
parently entirely recovered his halth
when lie returned to Chicago to look
after his business affairs. The dis
ease re-appeared and he made a trip
to California Which done him no good.
About four months ago he returned to
Lyford but it was too late thdis-
ase having become too firmly rooted
to be overcome. His mother Mrs.
Carrie H. Howland was with him in
all his travels and' accompanied the
remains to Chicago.
