WAILUKU, MAUI, H. T., SATURDAY. JUNE 24, i9U
f olo In
Practice Game at Sunnyside Bringing
. Out Promising Talent.
' Quito nn animated scono was pre
sented on tho Sunnysido polo field
last Saturday afternoon, when the
Maui Polo Club met for their week
ly practico game.
Lined up along tho sideboards
were a number of autos, in the
midst of which stood tho old grand
. stand groaning under the weight of
a largo gathering of Maui's fair
supporters of the game Notably
present were JHosuames, A. W. Uol
lins, F'.F. Baldwin, D.T.Fleming,
E. A. Peck, Dora von Tempskv,
J. B. Thomson, H. W. Rice, Stan
ley Richardson, also the Misses
'Alexa von Tempsky.Margorie Cooke,
Armine and Qwen von Tempsky,
Annio Wodohouse, Gladys Vandor
Hoof, Miss Muthcr, Frances Bald
win, and others.
Mauka of tho grandstand is situat
ed a long lino of fine box stalls; in
front of which wero parading some
twenty good looking and well con
ditioned ponies under the watchful
oyp of Dr. Fitzgerald. In addition
to the polo boots usually worn by
ponies in a game, it was noticed
that quite a number wero also wear
ing galloping bandages on their hind
legs, as an additional protection
against sprains and accidental blows
from polo sticks, giving them quite
an international aspect.
Out of an exceptionally good
looking lot of ponies, "Dandy," a
dark chestnut 'df fine conformation
and recently purchased from tho
Parker Ranch by Mr. F. F. Bald
win, was conceded to be ono of the
best ponies ever seen on Maui ; he
has whirl of speed, and although
but recently trained plays, tho game
like a veteran. Frank Baldwin's
.string also includes "Little Arthur"
a well put up block of the right
typo, with an enviable reputation
through having played last year in
the games between Burlingamo and
the English Team, and tho old
standbys, Boy Blue and Hawaii
already well known in Inter Island
Polo, looking fitter than ever.
A string of ponies also worthy of
praiso was Mr. Harold Rico's,
which included Waielele, Kolora,
Prince and Pela. The two latter
are recent arrivals; Pela is a beau
tifully turned grey mare with speed
to burn, and as handy and clever
aB Kipling's ' 'Maltese Cat."
Mr. D. T. Fleming has also add
ed to his stable a tipical 4 pony in
"Josephas" who was beautifully
trained on the Parker Ranch. This
pony is well bitted, fast and handy
and a great acquisition to David's
Tho peaceful scene suddenly
changes on the arrival of Captain
Frank Baldwin, to ono of strenuous
action, men are seen scurrying for
their mounts and grooms for their
masters, as the Captain shouts
"Line up;" and a fnst game of polo
was soon in process.
Six periods of seven minutes each
wero played, those taking part in
tho game during the different
periods being, Frank Baldwin,
Harold Rico, David Fleming,
Arthur Collina, Buck, Thomson,
Louis von Tompsky, Rov. Turner,
Jimmio Meyers, Geo. Steele, and
C. Burns. Tho game was fast all
through and many noticably good
individual plays wero made. Frank
Baldwin mado a corking good goal
by a long angular drive from the
sido lino after securing tho ball
from tho midst of a scrimmage. Mr.

Racy Paragraphs From the Capitol On
Current Topics. s
(By Oscar Brenton.)
I am of tho opinion that most of
those who howled at tho aviator in
Kapiolani Park on Sunday were
those who dodged tho conductor of
tho street cars when ho camo for
the festivo nicklo. I guess you havo
noticed that the men who pay least
for their board in tho restaurants
aro tho hardest kickers and those
whose food at homo is most accord
ing to routine aro the ones who
crowd tho waiter when he goes from
along the lino for soup to nuts in the
average cafe. There was plenty of
wind on Sunday and it seems to mo
the man who goes up in a machine
that measures but .thirty feet from
tip to tip of tho wings should bo al
lowed to say whether ho believes
tho air currents suitable for a safe
journey. Tho mob on Sunday,
when tho aviator annouced that ho
would not go up, might bo likened
to one in the days of the commune
in Paris. Masson's flight from Lei
lehua in the early morning was sub
lime. He seemed to vie with tho
pinau as ho sailed over the reef,
following it from where ho left itho
coast line at Kalihi until he return
ed to it again at the edge of the
Waikiki district where ho began a
circlo that demonstrated his control
of tho machine. And he did this
stunt without hope of reward; it
was something not in the 'program
but ho insisted upon giving tho
public sdmething they did not havo
to pay for. Unfortunately tho
event did not havo much publicity
and only a handfull of peoplo wit
To prove that lie is not obliged to

move his car to Leilehua and give

will fly any old place and get rid of

ly mado him suffer. From what I
saw last Sunday I am safe in saying
Masson could do the drop handker
chief act on his monoplane with as
much ease as old Buck Taylor used
to do it on a horso in the Buffalo
Bill show years ago. Masson is all
right; it was tho desire to disposo of
a stock of near-beer that kept tho
crowd, if some of tho statements
mado aro to bo relied upon.
There was a rumor hero some
timo ago that Ed. Lewis was to
havo a machine with which ho
could carry tourists from tho wharf
to tho pali. I doubted it at tho
timo and still doubt.. But that's a
way I havo.
I am asured by tho promoter of
tho boxing contest of Saturday
night that tho middloweights fought
the best they knew how. I was not
real certain of that as I watched
them counter and block, swing and
hook and jab and my reasons for
doubt wero based on tho fact no man
can afford to como from the coast for
one mill and it is usually played to
havo three. Saturday night I felt
sure there would bo moro to como
during tho weeks hence but Dick
tells me ho is sending tho boys back
on tho Sierra to got class. So Ho

and the baseball players played ball
on Sunday in such a desultory way
that fuko was evident. Scully puts

What the Wrestlers, Boxers and Base
Ball Artists Are Doing.
Billy Papko, the American middle
weight, took the measure of
Jim Sullivan, the middle weight
champion of England, in nine
rounds of fast fighting. Again it
was the fighter against tho boxer,
and tho fighter won with ease. Tho
contest was for the middle weiglit
championship of the world, a purse
of $10,000 and a side bet. Through
out, tho fight was a- grueling ono.
Sullivan proved tho cleverer at long
range work, but Papke excelled at
infighting. Thcro was much clinch-
ing and hitting in tho clinches and
tho refrec, Eugene Corri, had,
difficulty at times in separating tho
men. Ho warned Papko twice.
Sullivan showed nervousness wJien
ho climbed into the ring, but after a
few rounds seemed to recover confi
dence. For a timo ho was able to
stand off Papko, who roughed
it from the beginning, cloverlv
dodging the slashing swings of tho
American, which, had they landed,
would havo ended tho fight Sul
livan used his left and right with
good judgement, but without affect
ing tho stamina of Papko, who was
ablo to take unlimited punishment.
Toward tho close of tho ninth round
Papko landed a savage uppercut,
which put Sullivan to the floor.
Ho took a count of five and, when
the bell rang, staggered blindly to
his corner., When tho call for tho
tenth round sounded Sullivan was
unable to stand up, and Corri
awarded tho fight to tho American
amid great applause.
Ty Cobb, tho Detroit American
star outfielder, is a peculiar fellow
peculiar in everything. Most
ballplayers like to bat when tho bases
aro empty, when nothing depends
on their showing. They claim that
when not working under a strain
thoy can always do better. Cobb,
of course, is just tho opposite. Ho.
likes to step up to tho plate when
tho sacks aro filled. Contrary to
general opinion, Cobb claims he can
always do his best when something
dpends on his performance. Ty's
logic is pretty good at that. "I
find it easier to hit tho ball with tho
bases occupied," says Tyrus. "Tho
pitcher is worried, tho infi elders aro
guessing, and when you do hit tho
ball tho flying baso runners rattlo
and disconcert tho men who aro
trying to handle it. "With men
on, I generally lay for tho first ball
the pitcher hands over. Its dollars
to dimes that if lie can lay that first
one straight over tho pan ho'll do it,
and I soak quite a few of them. The
majority of batsman will pass up
tho first ball no matter if it cuts tho
plate in half, but you'll never get
this boy overlooking ono of that
kind. Nino times out of ten I go
to the plato prepared to ticklo tho
first ball if tho pitchor lays it over.''
