The topic of the day among the
funs is the opening of the coining
baseball season ut Wells' Park on
Easter Sunday, April 11th. "
The grounds' have been eleaned
and rolled and are now in better
shape than ever before. For the
past week a gang of prisoners, under
Jailor Joe Welch, has been at work
and the result of their labor is cer
tainly surprizing. What was con
sidered a very poor baseball park has
been transformed into the' best base
ball'diamond on the island of Maui.
The grandstand will receive 'some
necessary repairs ana everytinng
will be done for the accomodation of
The teams that-will compete this
season are the Kahului, llealani and
Morning Stars and each has been
trying t' outdo the other in signing
The Kahului lias a very valuable
acquisition in Willie Chillihgworth,
who held down the pitcher's box for
the Diamond Head team during last
season in the Honolulu league.
Ayau and English, the Kahului stars
last season, are still with the team
and it is understood that there an
other additions to bo made.
The Healanis have been, strength
ened considerably by the withdraw
al of the Waikapu team and some
' say there are a .bunch of surprizes
coming from that aggregation.
Last, but not least, the Morning
Stars are making one grand effort to
pick up a team strong enough to win
back the Raymond cup, which is
the bone of contention again this
car. It is understood that Messrs.
Lowell and Cumrnings will play with
the Stars, and Mr. Meyers, the new
assistant bookkeeper of the Wailuku
' Sugar Co. , who plaj ed last year with
the IScrkeley team, is also a new
addition, and with M. Correa and
Kealoha of the Riverside League of
"Honolulu will strengthen the Stars
The baseball loving public will
undoubtedly bo treated this season
to baseball of the best class. The
Kahuluis iand Morning Stars will
open the season and from all ap
pearances will give the fans.a chance
.,to see them in their best form.

On their way they happened to
pass Doctor Dinegar who was out in
his 'line machine. Now report has
it that the Doctor is very proud of
his machine and of his skill in oper
ating the same and to pass him is
worse than a criminal offense.
In a short time the residents of
Wailuku' were startled by loud
words and awful invectives.
The police force and the county
attorney'? office were appealed to
and orders were issued by the whole

the authorities the irate Bob wanted
a third party to act as a cat's paw
for him while ho remained in the
background. He even stated to the
bounty Attorney that he was not
willing to appear as tlie prosecuting
witness nor to bo called as a witness
in the case.
As there was no one else present

Magistrate McKay stated that his
attention had been called to the fact
that they had driven faster than the

District Magistrate McKay got a
letter of like tenor at the same time
