THE mJTH MOUT SPORT
IS NEVER A KNOCK
Trio of Speeders Want to Take
Him on tor Relay Race Over
the Ten-Mile Distance
It looks natural to see Soldier King
around town again, and followers of
foot racinc are honing that some
cinder burner will show up who is
able and willing to give the soldier a
brush. King left here last March, ana
has been on the Coast ever since, but
he did little running I here, only meet
ing Jiramie Fitzgerald a couple of
times in two mile races.
King put on considerable welgLi
while away, so Tuesday night he went
to Athletic Park and went a mile at
speed, just to see whether he had
pone oft any. He carried a watch
himself, and to his great surprise
found that at the end of the run it
marked 4:38 3-5. King thinks that
this is correct, for he said he never
felt better or went stronger in his
-life, but if the clocking was accurate.
he certainly gave a remarkable per
formance, for the former Island re
cord, held by hlmseif, was . 4:48 1-5.
King 'will 'not 'have any great diffi
culty In getting matches,- for already
three runners are out with chal
lenges ii A team; composed of An-
tone Kabo, FranX , Scharsch and . Nigel
Jackson wants to take King on for
a 10-mile relay ' event,' and Jackson Is j
out with an individual challenge to
race King on the road over the Hale-
lwa-Waikikl course for a side bet of
$50 or xnorev : - i

'LOCAL BALL FANS

Auto polo is the .very latest thing in sport. It has been played in the Middle West with some success, and
both players and spectators say that it is about the most exciting amusement that has ever been tried out. The

' In the season of 1911 there were ex
actly six left banders in the National
league and one of these did not finish
the season. Five can be .said to have
done active 'service ttrougnout the
schedule. They are Lelfield, Sallee,
Marquard, Wiltse and Rucker. The
work these five accomplished was bril
liant, not only against teams with a
bunch ; of left handed batters, but
against, all ciabs. ,; There are twenty
cne in the books today, .
- Manager ' Chinee of the Chicago
Cubs would give a whole lot of money
to get . possession of one good left
bander. . Since Jack Pflester was dis
posed of the team has been badly in
need of one. The scouts tried strenu
ously to land one, but none was good
erough to remain. Chance hoped to
strengthen Lis staff by the addition of
Leifield. He did to an extent. He is
still seeking southpaws and now has
three youngsters with him for trial.
Tbey are : Madden, Sommers and
Pierce. They look a lot better than

Several of the, left handers secured
this season have shown themselves to

Kcbinson of '. Pittsburg . is another
youngster to improve and he bids fair
to te a winner .next season, as do Ben

and Tyler of Boston. Tyler did not
seem to do as well this season as last,
tut he Is a wonderful twirler, and with
a team like Chicago or New York
wculd rank as one of the best. Fred
Clark thinks he has unearthed another
comer in Warner, while Roger Bresnv
hon looks to Willis to help the Cardi
nals considerably next season.
Rube Marquard undoubtedly is the
king of the left handers and a remark
able pitcher. His work this season
clearly demonstrates that fact. Nap
Rucker of the Trolley Dodgers prob
ably would .be a greater flinger if te
were connected with a first divtion
ball team. Sallee went along in fine
shape this season as long as he behav
ed himself, pitched consistent bay and
kept the Cardinals rrom being down at
the bottom with Boston.

ROWING MEN TO
World's Series Will Be Along
Next Week, and Honolulu Ex

A few days more, and the world's
series will be on. On October 8 the
New York Giants and Boston Red Sox
are scheduled to meet for the first
game of what promises to be one of
ti e most exciting series in the history
oi the national game.
Honolulu fans, although separated
by a good many thouiand miles of
land and water from the theater of
hostilities ..are never the less looking
forward with keen anticipation tof the
tig doings. Almost everyone who fol
lows baseball at all, has some prefer
ence as to the Notional and American
league organizations, that is lining
him up on one side or the other, and
ttere are a number who stand ready
o back their hunch or their judgment
with real coin. There have been sev
eral comparatively small bets put
down at even money in Honolulu dur

have been made public.
