ly disappointed, upon arriving at La
Grande hist Saturday, to find that only a
part of tho Unlon-Coye baseball aggrega
tion was upon tho grounds, and that tho
prospect for a close gamo was not very
llattoring. The boys present, however,
after a spirited tluhate between iheniKClvos,
concluded to play the 0. tt. A K. boys,
rather than return, although they admitted
that thoy had no chauee of wlnuiug. After
securing two boys from tho Uniou 'kid

the nine, game was called with Uniou at
