Jike Fisher's Aggregation
The coming of Mike Fisher's ag
gregation of baseball stars to Hono
lulu has started the talk of baseball
during the coming season. Al
ready fans are picking up a team
to take the cup away from the Ka
hului team, its present holders.
It is said there is very little chance
of a Waikapu .team entering as there
is not enough material, but there is
no doubt that Wailuku could put up
two good teams, which would give
the Kahuluis a hard rub, if not win
There are many who are dissatis
' lied" with the idea of importing play
ers from Ilpnolulu as that can only
btiPdonc by the team or teams with
enough financial backing to stand
the expense of transportation and
keep of imported men.
There are others who go further
and say that the donor of the Ray
mond Ranch cup intended that the
same should be competed for by
Maui players, but there was nothing
stipulated to that effect in his letter
presenting the cup. In fact, other
than stating that it should become
the property of the team winning it
two successive seasons, he left the
fixing of schedules, ground, rules,
and all other matters to the Maui
The grounds at present are in bad
condition but at a small expense
could be laid out to the satisfaction
of fans and players. The grand stand
is in need of repairs and should bo

the league until such time as the
plantation may want to use the
same. An attempt has been made
to lease the grounds but it did not
prove successful. Should the league
obtain a lease of 'the land a high

The people who now take advan

free admission, would have to pay
to see a game and then the associa

appropriated $-10,000 of an agricul

managed. In 1810 a chair for
chemistry and agriculture was cstab

chair for manufactories in Yale. In
1850 the state of Michigan estab
lished an agricultural college, the
state of Maryland in 1859 and other
states followed. In 1859 Senator
Morril advocated giving Federal aid
for the establishment of agricultural
colleges, but not until '18(51 was his

the Congressmen Saw that when the

In this measure it was provided that
a grant of 30000 acres of land be
given for the establishment of an
agricultural college for each con

New York received a grant of 990,

college of Hawaii are established for
the teaching of subjects relating to
agricultural and mechanic arts. In

At present there are oyer ninety
students attending the Collego of

Mr. Akobayashi, the Japanese
pharmacist, was beforo dibtiict ma
gistrate W. A. McKay Thursday
this week to answer to the charge
of practicing medecine without a
license. The prosecution was con

JMios Vincent and the interests of
tho defendant were looked after by

It was shown by the testimony
of witnesses for the prosecution that
the accused did make some ex

quest of complainant's husband,
and that the defendant after an
examination such as a nhvsici.
would make stated that the trouble
was beriberi and advised com
plainant's husband to call a phy
sician, not in any wise prescrib
ing remedies to bo taken or medi

On this showing and without de
fendant putting on any witness on
his behalf, the case was dismissed.

Akobayashi had on a previous oc
casion pleaded guilty to a similar
charge, sentence for which had
been suspended, and the deputy
couiily attorney brought in u mo

on him for the said mevious of
