All Maui was iu a fever of anxiety
last Monday to hear from the polo
game. According to the figures re;
ported in the previous games, it was
believed that Maui has a winning
show, bat at noon on Monday the
news came that Honolulu had defeat
ed Maui, with a score of 1-1 to il.
W hiie this was a worse defeat than
was expected, still Honolulu, having
a larger contingent of experienced
and .well-trained pulo players to
di aw from, had quite an advantage
over the limited teams from the oil
er Islands. Inter-island polo .content

week next year should be agitated.
