dishes, which had been excellently
In the ccnti iMf the table was the

questionably the most valuable tro
phy ever offered on MauMo encour
Dr. J. H. Raymond, to whom is
due. the presentation of this 'cup
was asked to make the presentation
speech and he acquitted himself with
becoming dignity and in a manner
that left no doubt in the minds of
his hearers 'that he was actuated by
a desire to faster good, clean, man
ly sport on Maui. ,
Dr. Raymond sajd in part, in pre
senting the cup: "
Captain bnglisli, hclore present
ing this cup, to your club I wish to
say that last year 1 happened to be
one day in the First National Hank
of Wailuku and overheard Mr. J;
Garcia say that the boys were hav
ing a very liard time in obtaining
sufficient funds to meet expenses in
order to keep up the baseball teams.
After listening to what he had to
Say I determined toofi'er this cup of
the Raymond Ranch as a trophy to
be played for by local teams.
"Captain English, it is,a pleasure
to me to present this cup to you a?
you have won ivhorio.-tly and fairlv.
1 have noted with pride, that this
year has seen better baseball games
on Maui than before and 1 take
pride in the thought that 1 may
have clmtributed to some slight ex
tent in developing good sport on this
island. 1 congratulate you and your
team on the earnest and honest ef
forts you havo made.
"There are many others who have
contributed towards developing an
interest in sports on this island.
Among them are II. I Baldwin'
and his sons.-They are good sports."
And then turning to the members1
of the defeated teams he compli
mented thorn on tho strenuous ef
forts they had put up and assured
them it took men of character to
smile when others won from them
the object of their desires, lie ad
vised them to put forth every efi'ort
possible to win back from the Kahu
lui team tho trophy.
