Walla Walla, Wash, Feb. 11. To
the editor of the Observer I will pen
you a few lines In regard to the
Western .Trl-state baseball 'league
which I-'am at present organlzlng
and which f can say for certain will
be organized Immediately under pro
tection of the National Association of
Processional Baseball, regardless of
Boise, Nampa, Baker City and of La
Grande: I have just J.1 applications
fcnd only six clubs will be : admitted,
to I can promise" you the league will
be organized and In Class C: 1
Now In regard to La Grande, I
was very glad to see La Grande a
member of said league, n merely 'be
cause I have deep' respect, for the
good.loyal fans of that city, .and un
der the present condition and In such
a league these same loyal fans and
the public would he assured good
baseball, which they are undoubted
entitled to. Now as I 'have a recent
article clipped ' from a La Grande
paper stating that Boise, Nampa, Ba
'ker City and La Grande did not ap
prove of the Jack O'Brien plan to
enter the Western Trl-state League.
Now allow me to truthfully Btate
that O'Brien himcelf would not be
feo foolish as to organize such- a
league to travel' from Walla Walla
to Boise and would never have be
lieved, isuch, ,slmply because my past
1? years experience has taught me
better, ; and' furthermore, I desire to
state to the public through your pa
per that I merely wanted La Grande
tr have a franchise in said league
In due respect' for the fans and the
public and not for the one endeavor
i;g to promote , such a club In your
city T, myself, had the personal in
Station to promote the La Grande
end of it from a baseball standpoint
and I dare say that I no not know
of two merchants or business men In
La Grande who would assist the one
now endeavoring to promote base
tt.ll In La Grande to the extent of
five cents financially. . Let the people
there stand for such talk and await
I am thankful to know I can truth
fully state that in regard to baBe
ball I did all I promised for La
Grande in every way and hope they
i re ; fortunate enough to see good
baseball this season. " '.
I will be back In La, Grande short
ly and will talk the mater over with
a few prominent business men in a
business way J and to show all how
positive I. am, of my new league. I
have 38 players to date and in event
La Grande does not be a member
of a league outside of amateur base
ball. I prQtni.se faithfully to trans
fer a couple of game sor a couple
of series to. La Grande even' if we
have to play on the open lots pro
viding we are refused the privileges
of the baseball park.
Now I am writing thig epistle for
publication and. trust '.you. will pub
lish the same for me In your val
uable paper,, j,,. "'

stjongly dramatic picture dealing
