Definite assurance that a business

Baker, Union, Elgin and La Grande:
promises made by Grant Hughes, a
clean young fellow who has had con
siderable experience in handling clubs
and is himself a player of repute, that
he will manage the team If substan
tial business men will officer a local
club; positive assurances from Elgin
and Union ,and substantial avowals
from Baker, that these towns stand
ready to form the league at once,
are some of the developments of sum
mer baseball that have been broueht
cut in the past few days., The most
important of these perhaps Is the will
Ingn.ss of local business men to get
behind a local club and give it prest
ige, by their affiliations. That the
support will be forthcoming to a club
headed by three or more conservative
businessmen is concedd and a self-
evident tact, vvuh liiebe eucouia6uis
conditions existing there remains but
one barrier to the speedy formation
of-a four-town league that will be
going just as soon as the conditions
will perplt. .
"Want Forfeits Posted.
La Grande business men will not
ad vane a cent of money or lend mor
al support, say fans who have felt
the public's pulse, unless every club
in the proposed league Is willing to
post a small forfeit, say $200, that
will revert back to the club posting it
should the stipulations be adhered to.
These rules need not be ironclad, but
would have to insure the completion
of the, playing season. Fourth of
July smoke, quarrels within the ranks
of tli 2 different clubs, erlevances that
had no court of appeals to resort to,
have become so thoroughly disgusting
to the paying fans that there will be
no more credit or support given to
a club organized along other linea.
than would be forthcoming to a beg
ging millionaire. If the other towns
will, and there Is no 'uestion but
wnat they will, consent to this re
quirement and others of minor Im
portance, the formation of the club is
an assured fact.
Union. Baker and La Grande esp.
clally hare had the blowing un habit
for several years, and a forfeit alone
will stop it, and various other unde
sirable features of amateur baseball.
Another Important regulation that
must be Inculcated In the by-laws
of the four club league, Is the right
of umpires to inflict and collect league
fines for mlsdomeanor by players or
flagrant violations of the rules by the
managers. So to reiterate, the La
Grande business lmn will lend their
prestige to the league, support and ob
tain financial support for a local club
provided the organization Is perfect
ed, on the forfeit basis with one hired
player and no mor:.
Hughes, n Capable Mun,
Well versed in the game, able to
handle men and to play well himself,
Hughes Is a valuable man as a Moses
In this instance. He has worked al!
winter in the Masterton blacksmith
shop, is an Elk and has won for him
self respect by all who know him and
confidence would readily be placed in
his hands. He will take the club
with the consideration that a board of
directors of business men of the city
elected at a meeting of the fans to be
held early next week, stand behind
him and care for the finances. He
will handle the team, but there his
connections cease. He knows of sev
eral excellent players who seek Jobs
In La Grande and will play here If
they can secure Jobs. A "lumber and
a dry goods man areamong these.
With what few men there are now
here the local club could be readily
formed. But that Is an after matter
that can ba settled by the manager.
The proposition now Is to elect a
board of directors of business men
and allow them to direct the finances
of the club.
Union sent. a delegation here las;
week. Tuttle and Maxwell were
their names, and they reflect the feel
ing expressed In La Grande, that business-like
management is want:d bv
their fans. Elgin express the same
notion and Baker, too. wants to eol
off on new footing.
