Now thev have all gone too slow
for the bic race. Younger and bright
er stars have replaced them. Such is
the way of baseball.
rJddie Summers injured his pitching
arm and his career is about closed so
far as the big show goes. Detroit sent
him to Providence several weeks ago,
but he" was of no use to that club.
Charlie O'Leary took the manager
ship of the Indianapolis club in the
American Association, but he lost that
job a few weeks ago because his club
was making a poor showing. Charlie
Schmidt is working in the receiving
denartment of the Frovindence club.

Honolulu, August, 26. 1912.
Hon. Chas. P. Chlllingworth, Presi
dent, Oahu Baseball League, City.
Dear Sir: On behalf of the. Portu
guese Athletic Club baseball team, I
hereby make protest to the final deci
sion as rendered by Umpire Ralph dur
ing the seventh inning of the game
played between the Stars and P. A. C.
on Sunday, August 25, 1912.
My protest is based on the follow
ing: During the seventh Inning Frank
Joseph was declared safe by the urn
pire at the home plate, the said umpire
deciding the man safe by a motion
invariably used by umpires of the Oahu
Baseball League when making such
decisions, viz.: both hands palm down,
and then reversing his decision con
trary to Spalding Rule 63, which reads
-There shall be no appeal from any
decision of either umpire on the
ground that he was not correct in his
conclusions as to whether a batted ball
was fair or foul, a base runner safe
or out, a pitched ball a strike er ball,
or on any other play involving accu
racy of judgment, and no decision ren
dered by him shall be reversed, ex
cept that he be convinced that it is
in violation of one of these rules. The
captain shall alone have theright to
protest against a decision and seek
its reversal on a claim that it Is in
conflict with a section of these rules.
In case the captain does seek a re
versal of a decision based solely on a
point of rules, the umpire making the
decision shall, if he is in doubt, ask
his associate for information before
acting on the captain's appeal. Under
no circumstances shall either umpire
criticize or interfere with a decision
