"Texas Magnates Forfeit Money - Which Forms the State Colored League. - Special to the Freeman. - Dallas, Texas, April 8. - Texas baseball magnates met in Dallas and put up their forfeit money, which forms the Colored State League. Houston, San Antonio, Fort Worth, Dallas, Gainesville, and Oklahoma City were represented, and all seem well pleased. Each manager is now trying to secure his players. As the season calls for over 140 games, each team will have some hustling to do to please the fans. The Dallas manager has promised classy playing this season, and others must do the same."

Chicago, IL
"On Monday of this week the Chicago Baseball League passed a rule barring games between its members and all visiting colored ball clubs from now on, the rule being made to include the Cuban clubs that have been playing around the circuit the past two years. The rule will work very badly against the Stars of Cuba, who figured on playing on the Chicago League Circuit after the Cuban Stars left the city. This action means that the Chicago Leaguers will not play visiting colored teams any more in the future."
