"Attorney Halley of Pendleton, cas
top gambling all right," remarked John
U, Sharpstetn. a prominent Walla Walla
lawyer, who is In Portland today, "but
what is he going to gain? Men will
gamble and if they cannot do it in one
way they will In Jhother. I cannot see
where it is any worse for them to stake
their money on the turn of a card,
tns speea or a norse or a shales of a
dice, than It is to speculate In stocks or
real estate. One is as much a gamble
as the other."
Mr. Sharpateln is an enbtuslastlo base
ball fan and was manager of the Walla
Walla team in 101 and lo:. Last year
the team under another management
failed. Mr. Sharpstetn is of the opin
ion that a team 'of semi-professional
nsture, and not too high class, would
prove a sucoess this season. "Both
Boise and Spokane want to train in
Walla Walla this spring." he added, "and
this would give the local nine plenty of
opportunity to get into practice. My
business will not permit me to take an
active part in baseball this year." ,
