The Reds arrived safe from Keokuk last night, all in good condition for the game with the Whites to-day, except Dillon who is still quite under the weather. Dillon will not catch to-day, and it is very uncertain who will. There is very little betting on the Red-White game, opinion being quite general that the Whites will beat. If previous games indicate anything and the Reds play their best game, then they will give the Whites some work. The game will be called at four o'clock at the Compton avenue park. The Reds report that their share of the gate money fro two games at Keokuk reached the magnificent amount of $44. The two games here must have netted the Chicagos some $1500.
