Australia has taken up baseball in
tamest and is now preparing to send
a picked nine to the United States.
This is the news brought to San Fran-
: ; clsco by C. C. Spink, publisher of the
St. Louis Sporting News, who arrived
recently from Sydney.
Australia, he nays, is the greatest
sporting country In the world, and, al
Thought its adoption of baseball is com
paratively recent, there are already
ir ore than 50!) Australians, men and
boys, playing the game. He didn't see
any games while there, but from Amer
ican fans living In Sydney, men who
knew baseball when they , saw it play
ed, he learned that the . Australians
were putting up a good sample of
America's national game.
" "They "are raising the money now to
send their best'hlne to this country.
ho paid. "The Oceanic Steamship com
pany has donated $0 toward paying
the steam's expenses and the Spalding
peo;e have prqmjsed: a slroilar sum.
Tbe Australian government will help
n Ith a contribution and' tffe different
cities .of the commonwealth will be
asked to contribute. They expect to
raise $7,500 and Will be over here in
a few months." ! .
Cal Jawing was to have accompanied
Spink"o Australia, but at the Tast min
ute changed'hls mind.' Spink intended
going from Sydney. to China and Japan,
but did net )ike the steamer, on which
be would have had to make the trip,
so .returned ,on the Ventura,
AVAILUKU, Iaui, Jan. .15. The an
nual meeting of the Maui Racing' As
sociation was held - last night In : the
"WaUuku Town Hall.,There was a good
attendahce of members. k,Tbe meeting
was' certilply 'one of the liveliest the
association I ,has held, for some tfme; W.
T.! Itobtnson. the" former oresldgnt. wai
re-elected tycclimation;' O.'H. Case
and Ben Lyons were nominated, for. tne

were nominated for the of fice ot eecre-
tary-treasurer. Mr..Crocketti who neld
the office ior the ilast yeart jflcas Ye
elecUd,-i By,. acclamation, Angus Mb
Pbee. Louis voaTempsky and Dl T.
Carey were elected the executive com
trlttee, who, together with the officers
of the association, have charge of get
ting up the program for the Fourth of
July '.... ?: f-r'- r . , ...
The discussions of the evening were
arounsed by the fact, that the associa
tion is in debt, and the members felt
that every hieanlTcbsSI5!e should be
taken Jto Hp? the llaul Racing Asso
ciation on, a.fi.nnfinapcial basis. Sev
eral, members ,thought,the fault lay in
the. admission of too many people on
membership' passes,, while s others felt
sure that the purses should not be
made so large In the future. It was
remarked' that one' year a man took 28
members 6f his .family' Into the grand
stand. He brought' in not only his im
mediate relatives but those .connected
with Wm in' the most dlsthnt yay. The
triembere of the' association felt (hat
the privileges of free entrance into, the
Vaces should he confined to members
only pd perhaps. the wives of the
members. ' .After some discussion two
motions . were . passed unanimously
which' provided (haO member and pne
lady accompanying him should be ad
mitted free; that for each visitor who
resided away from Maui the member
should obtain a ticket from the presi
dent with tho name of the visitor writ
ten upon, the ticket, for which was to
be paid the usual admission, both at
the sate and at the grandstand. Sev-
leral hundred dollars were lost last
year by the carlessness of tne mem
bers in paying no attention to the
rules. It is expected that this year the
receipts will be much larger than for
some time In the past.
The' executive committee, together
With tbe officers, are to make up the
program of races for the Fourth and
a meeting of the whole association is
to be called as soon as the program is
ready for approval. It is confidently
expected by all members of the Maui
Racing Association ' that the coming
Fourth will be the biggest day in the
history of the sport on the Valley Isle.

up the defi of the local bowlers, and a

ranged ' between the two 'associations,
the - first alley engagement being 4
scheduled for Wednesday, February 5.
This is good news to Honolulu pin

C. A. lie yshas been angling for a
series with San Francisco and Oakland
for some time past, and the last mall
brought him a satisfactory answer
from the latter city. It has taken sqme
time for ihe Coaster to come to a de
cision, but as matters have turned
cut this is a better time for a series
of the kind than December would have
been, there being more bawling activ

The very latest in games is baseball
played with a football, t The "new
friend of the magnate and the profes

Benscoter of the Wllkesbarre, Fa,

game he explains It as follows: '
"A baseball can not be easily held
by players in cold weather, hence the
need of a game with the larger, clum
sier football. It is played on a base
ball diamond, with the same number
of players on a side, the most potable
difference being, that there Is no
pitcher; this player occupies the place
cf another shortstop-'right shortstop
between first and second. "
"The ball Is put Into play by being
Kicked from home plate and the run

is put out by the passing of the ball
to first ahead of him, as in baseball,
or being touched by it in the hands of
"The runner may not advance from
a base hen the ball has not been
passed to the baseman, who touches
the base' while the runner is there;
this debars the runner from advancing
from the base until it has been again
kicked out; it likewise debars; any run
ner back of him. The kick may be of
any sort place, punt or drop kick.
The runner may be declared out if he
advances from the base before the ball
is kicked out. If 'the ball is kicked
foul the1 kicker is out; he is also out
it he fails in an attempt to kick.
The game Is very lively, being full
of constant kicking, running, catching i
and passing. It develops ( strength,
