LEAGUE GAMES TO BP.GIN.
Tomorrow tho first of a series of
league games of baseball will bo
played at Wells' Park at 3 o'clock,
p. m., between the Kaliuluis and
Tho Kaliuluis have not lost any
practice games and certainly mado
a fine showing, but it is to bo re
membered that tho Lahainas, who
lost a practice game to tho Kaliu
luis, aro determined that thcy'will
not let themselves bo beaten and
from rumors heard abcut, havo
been hard at practico on the other
side of tho Island.
Last Sunday's gamo between 'the
Wailukus and Waikapus resulted
in favor of tho former with a score
of 7 to 2.
Tho gamo was a hard fought one,
no side scoring up to tho sixth inn
ing, when Crowell of the Wailu
ku'a started things going by mak
ing a home-run hit over right
field's head. Two runs wcro scored
in this innings.
Tho Waikapus In their sixth
inning mado two runs also. Silva.
the first man to scote, proved a
very good player, having plenty of
speed, and doing excellent batting.
In the ninth Wailuku easily
found the ball and scored 5 more
runs to their favor. There were
some fumbles by the Waikapu
players, who got quite excited ow
ing, perhaps, to the tight score up
to that inning.
There is some doubt as to wheth
er or not there will be a Waikapu
team in the league, as it is propos
ed to strengthen the Wailuku
team,- by using some of the Waika
The grand stand has been re
paired and o proper back-stop fix
ed, and a fence is also to bo built.
Tomorrrow's game ought to
prove a very exciting one as both
combatants are dcsiious of draw
ing first blood. A largo crowd is
expected to be present.
BENEDICTS DEFEAT BACHE
LORS, 9 to G.
There was a large attendance at
Wells Park last Sunday afternoon
to witness the game botween the
Benedicts and Bachelors of Wailu
ku, which resulted in the married
men beating tho singles to the tunc
of 'J to (, after four innings of what
was supposed to bo baseball.
The crowd, which took sides with
the teams, simply roared with
laughter at the antics of the play
ers in attempting to stop the ball.
Shortstop Dan Carey of tho Bache
lors came on tho grounds with a
bag, but as it was against tho um
pire's liking he was not allowed to
The umpire, D. L. Meyer, strict
ly followed tho rules and saw that
neither justice nor injustice was
done to the players, unless he
deemed it proper. There were
some who wanted to kick at his
decisions but as they had agreed
to the rules, he would not listen to
Owing to the absence of Kcency
and Nelson of the Bachelors' team
when the game was begun, J. N.
K. Kcola was called to play. He
at first refused but could not help
himself when two players picked
him bodily from the stand and
forced him into the game. He
proved a valuable man at the
third bag, until the sphere came
his way. Jim feared the ball
would bo too hot for his hands, so
ho turned his back to it and thus
tried to stop it.
James Coke proved to be an old
time fielder and wielder of the
stick, doing some fine work. Ccd
crlof showed his speed and perfect
control in the box for a couple of
inningSj and looked liko a profes
sional at work. By his manner in
the box he scared the Bachelors so
the could not connect with the
ball. Anyway, they havo classed
him as a professional and say they
will ncvor play a team of Boncdicts
with Cedcrlof in the box.
The following are the rules rend
er which tho game was played and
were agreed to by the respective
captains of the two teanu:
1. Shouting and hollering not
allowed, unless a mistake is made
by any one of tho players.
2. Bumping into any baseman
is strictly prohibited, unless a
clean knockdown results from such
3. Talking to tho Umpiro is
criminal and will not bo tolerated,
unless tho aiulienco in tho grand
stand can hear what is said.
1. All complaints or disputes
will ho listened to and acted upon
after the game is plaved and de
5. Any ball struck out of siaht
and cannot bo found, not more
men lour runs will bo allowed.
