Supporters of the Oakland Athletics Base-Ball Club are invited to attend a public speech by Nicholas Swisher, a Base-Ball player of extra-ordinary talent, who will be appearing at a tavern near the Oakland ball grounds following an upcoming contest against the Texas nine. Mr. Swisher will be speaking about his exploits upon the Base-Ball diamond in addition to opining about the recent rule change in which a foul bunt is now considered by the umpire to be a strike. In addition, Mr. Swisher will give a rousing endorsement of President McKinley and his policies as well as a stirring denunciation of the free-silver movement.
Veterans of the recent conflict against the Spaniard will be admitted to the tavern free.
Persons of Irish extraction, anarchists, and other men of low character are discouraged from appearing at the emporium.
