lown by President V. I Thompson
of Pendleton, wfcu heads the Inland
" Empire league, the La Grande team Is
alleged to have lost In the first legal
fight to come up since the league wm
organized. The contested game was
with Baker City In this city on May
30. Manager Hosier protested a de
cision made by Umpire Splllman in the
ninth inning, and by going to Presi
