The result was a genuine surprise
to those Who Were not well acquaint
ed with personnel of the Kahulul
ter.m. As was stated in last week's
Nev8, there are individual players
in the Ilima nine who are fuperior to
anj thing the kahuums can bdust, Us
waB proven in Sunday's game. Tt
was feared by some that the Tlimas
would fall short in team practice,
but as a matter of fact they played
like a machine once they got under
headway. The Lahainas of course
played well together, but they lack
ed the keying up which will be need
ed to pluoe them among the winners.
They can play a better game than
they put up last Sunday, and they
will need some practice work before
they butt up 'against the Stars or
The Ilimas have one advantage
over the Lahainas and that is in
their relative size and strength. The
Lahainas looked like little boys
alongside their brawny antagonists,
still the Lahainas are lithe, muscular
little fellows, and once they get into
traitnng, they will hold their own on
the Wailuku diamond.
The battery of the Lahainas was
Espinda in the pitcher's box and
Niihau behind the bat, although
Searle pitched the last hal' of the
game. Both pitchers did first-class
work, and Niihau proved himself a
good paw, although rather slow with
return balls. Ned Krueger pitched
for the Ilimas, and the fact that he
is a post graduate pitcher of the
Stars tells the whole story. Wescott
caught for the Ilimas, and did some
good work, although he let a few ex
pensive ones get away from him.
Bpfore the season is over though, he
will become a fancy article. ' Lloyd
as 'a short stoD is a daisy.
Neither team distinguished itself
at the bat, because each team had
to face first-class pitching. The field
work of the Lahainas averaged bet
ter than that of the Ilimas, owing
doubtless to their last year's team
work. The Ilimas however did some
fine individual field work, notably a
running catch of a fly ball by Medei
ros, which was worth framing and
hanging up in the parlor, over the
piano. Being the maiden game of
each team for the season, some raw
work was expected, but it did not
materialize. Both teams, as a matter
of fact, worked like veterans, and if
they improve as they may be ex
pected to do, some high class ball
may be expected before the end of
the league season.
Following is the score by innings:
Ilimas 3 0 1 3 0 4 0 2 215
Lahainas 30000022 18
Tomorrow's game will be the first
measuring of bats between the Ilimas
and Wailukus, botn husky teams and
so evenly balanced that nobody can
guess. The Ilimas have some men
who are better than anything the
Wailukus possess, but the average
strength of the Wailukus Is more
evenly distributed, and the Wailukus
have the additional advantage of
prior team practice. It will proba
bly be anybody's game up to the ninth
inning, if both teams show up their

Mr. Barr kindly accorded the Niws
an interesting interview concern
ing Fanning Islands. "The island"
said Mr. Barr, "Is about 15 miles in
length and averages about 3 miles ir.
width. In the center of the Island is it
large lagoon which closely conforms
in shape with that of the Island, tie
ing two miles wide and over 12 miles
in length, the land of the Island con
sisting of a narrow strip about half u
mile in width entirely surrounding
the lagoon. This lagoon which has
three outlets to the open sea, simply
swarms with fish all the year roi-nd
and at certain seasons is literally
covered with wild dick and other
water fowls. Formerly there were
large deposits of guano on the island,
and traces of old railroad tracks and
roads still exist, which were used in
the guana trade. The vegetation of
the isiand consists principally of co
coanut trees, with a few other vari
eties, including the Pride of India
tree, common on Maui. Bananas and
small fruits do not flourish, owing to
the pure sand soil. "King" Gregg,
who owns the Island lives on the
southern end of it, where there is a
reasonably good harbor, and is ex
tensively engaged in the cocoanut in
dustry. He employs from two to
three hundred Gilbert Islanders as
laborers, paying them 13.00 per
month, under contract with their

Casual visitors at Kahulul last Sun
day morning were treated to an ex
citing boat race the contestants be
ing the hew whale boat Galilee recent
ly purchased by Pilot Bobert Eng
lish, and the Kaupu, a boat of similar
build and size, belonging to the K.
R. R. Co. The Galilee is a New Bed
ford boat, and the Kaupu is a San
Francisco boat. Pilot English cap
tained the former and Capt. Peter
son, of the "Les'ie Baldwin," the
latter; the Galilee carrying one-third
more spread of canvas than the
. The Kaupu took the lead by a few
rods at the start which she gallantly
maintained outaiouud the brig "Gal
ilee," and out to the flag buoy which
she rounded beautifully. The Galilee
made an apparently awkward fluke
at the flag buoy, giving the Kaupu a
hundred yards lead. From the flag
buoy, both boats ran outside of all
the buoys, swinging in to the new
wharf, where it became necessary to
tack and run up the wind to the
brig Galilee, where another tack put
them on the borne stretch. At the last
tack, the Kaupu dipped a. barrel of
brine and fluttered like a bird before
she could turn and get under way.
The Galilee made the tack in splen
did style and took a good lead which
she held, winning hands down in 14
min. 53 sec. over a 3 mile course.
Last Night's Mass Meeting.
Pursuant to posted notices, there
was a largely attended mass meeting
held at Wailuku Court House last
night. Dr. J. H. Raymond opened the
meeting by stating that its objects
were two-fold, first to discuss the
matter of subsidy for the wireless
telegraph company, and second, to
give some expression on the matter
of condemning land at Kahului for a
public wharf. The doctor spoke brief
ly but eloquently in the affirmative of
both propositions, and then suggest
ed that the meeting proceed t or
ganize. G. B. Robertson was eleSud
chairman, D. H. Case, secretary anj
John Richardson, interpreter. Judge
Kalua spoke warmly in favor of a
subsidy for the wireless telegraph
company and moved that proper
resolutions, signed by a committee of
twenty-five to be appointed by the
chair, be forwarded to the legisla
ture. The motion was heartily sec
onded, and carried unanimously.
A further resolution was offered by
Judge Kalua that a committee of live
be appointed to drafi and fowaAl a
set of resolutions to the legislature
requesting an appropriation of 50,
000 for a wlu.-f at Kahului, and that
