The congregation of eloquent and vo ciferous persons in the centre of an otherwise unoccupied block of ground was the Calexico baseball team zealously endeavoring to assist the umpire in changing his opinions. Almost every mem ber of the team was ready to drop all other business at an in stant's notice and rush to the umpire's aid, and at times the manager and numerous citizens kindly assisted in the delibera tions. Unfortunately the acous tic properties of the field were defective, and persons on the outer edge of the crowd could not hear always the interesting de bates on balls and strikes, fair and foul balls, which were the subjects discussed with mu...
