Clean Baseball received a setback last Sunday Unit it may

of the winter league with every prospect of a good series of pimes,
All of the teams are composed of local players and the public is
ready to support the four teams as is show n by the gate receipts in
Sunday's games started with every prospect of a tine set of
games for the day but instead of this being the result players were
repeatedly insulted, vulgar and profane language indulged in and
the games came near terminating in a row.
There is sometimes an excuse for a player who may loose his
head and say or do that which he should not but when those who
are not playing indulge in words nnd deeds such as were indulged
in on Sunday there is no excuse whatever.
The true sport is as ready to acknowledge a good play on the part
of his opponent as he is to take credit for what he or one of his
A spectator pays his money to see good sport and if he is a true
sport he is as ready to cheer a fine play when made by a member
of an opposing team as he is when such a plaj is made by a mem
ber of his favorite team.
As a rule most spectators have their favorite teams but they are
better satisfied with the day's sport if they see good playing than
they are to see their favorites win out through errors of the oppos
If the proposition of Captain Hattie is agreed to and enforced by
the other teams we may yet see-good sport on the grounds during

Government Will The announcement that the Federal Govern
Take Charge. ment will take charge of the leper settlement
in all probability means much for the unfortunates on the island o
Whether the change will be to the advantage of the people segre
gated there depends entirely whether it is the purpose of the Gov
ernment to makethe settlement the dumping ground for till persons
afflicted with the disease not only those in the Territory but those
on the Mainland.
The first Delegate to Congress -nude the mistake of his life in
trvina to eet such a scheme carried through and was defeated
more on that account than for any other reason.
Had his plan been to have the Federal Government take charge
and do what its most skillful men couKjjto effect a cure for the dis
ease it would have met with the heartiest approval from nil quar
tars but to make the settlement the laziretto of the nation was
mora than the neonle would stand for and the most. strenuous
efforts were made to prevent the carrying out of hU plan.
The mere fact that the Federal Government intends to take
charge of the settlement does not necessarily mean that there will
be any attempt to bring others from the Coast al'llcted with the
disease nor should this be done.
The authorities at Washington recognize the fact that to be able
to eradicate the disease would be doing more for- mankind than
would be possible in almost uny other way and it is safe to soy
that every effort will be put forth to accomplish this result.
Bites Of? an Arm.
On Tuesday of this week a Japanese
fisherman at Knlepolcpo, on the lea side
of this island, was attacked by a monster
man eating shark and had his arm bitten
off at the elbow.
It was about nine o'clock in the morn
ing when the affair happened. The fish
erman was looking down through a box
with a glass bottom to see' whether any
fish were in his uet and seeing that there
were some be dived down to close the
net and bring up the fish. ,No sooner had
he gotten down than a large shark seized
his arm at the shoulder anil stripped the
flesh off the arm to the elbow and twisted
the arm off at the joint nnd wentff with
The wounded man bled freely and it is
a wonder he did not bleed to death. He
was brought to Wailuku and reached here
about one o'clock the same day, and was
taken at once to the Maluluni Hospital
where his arm was amputated near the
shoulder by Dr. R. II. Dinegar.
As the man is a native of the northern
part of Japan and but few Japanese here
ire able to speak the dialect of that part
of Japan it is impossible to get a full
account of the affair.
The man is doing nicely and will re
cover although he had but little blood in
his system at the time he was operated on.
Queer Doings Over In Koolau.
Growing out of the attack of young
Henry Pahia on John Faya with a
pair of handcuffs at Kaneohe last
Tuesday, there may be an ir.vestiga
tion of the actions of District Magis
trate Aikue. Henry Pahia is a son
of Deputy Slier iff Frank Puhia. The
other day while drunk he attacked
without provocation John Faya, wiih
a pair of heavy handcuffs, striking
Faya over the bead an 1 body and in
dieting serious wout.ds so serious, in
fact, that Faya may die and the
charge against Puhia may he murde
When news of the assault reached

to arrest his son. This the Deputy
Sheriff refused todo. Thereupon Deo

Deputy High Sheriff George Seu went

The arrest was made and Puhia
brought, before Aikue, and the ease
set for heating next Tuesday. Tin

seems to be a warm partisan of P;

for the prosecution mi one charge or
another, even causing the arrest of
Pahia's victim Faya.
If Pahia is not held to the grand
jury by Aikue oi the hear'ng, the
matter will be brought to the atten

Smith Gets Six Months in Juil.
Manila, Sept. 4. Charles G. Smith
who returned from Honolulu on the
IV-gari Monday to answer to charges
of estafa, was arraigned yesterday
in the. court of lirst i nst a nre and
pleaded guilty to two nt the charges
and was sentenced to six months im
prioninent, and an indemnity to the
offended parties of P200 in one case
and P250 in another, or to suffer sub
sidiary imprisonment rhich would
amount to three months more.
Iu consideration for this frankness
in pleadingguilty, the charge of forg
ery was dismissed. Judge Gilbert in
formed the accused that he wanted to
give him an opportunity to reform.
The court gave defendant Smith
good fatherly lecture and told the
young man that he teemed to show
the right a', titude in confessing his
crime and told him that this need
not ruin his chances; that many times
he thought the man who was punish
ed as a wrongdoer for the first time.
had a better chance to recover him
self and lead a proper life thereafter
than the man who transgressed the
law and escaped punishment.
The Limit 'Doctor."
Wallach, the would becurer of lep
ers, is evidently trying; to stir up a
horuet'b nest among the heads of the
Territorial departments. He says
that he has buffaloed President Pink

that unless Governor Frear sees
tilings in his favor he 'ill soon have
him on the run also.
