Arbitration and Commerce.
AT a time when the entire English-speaking world is watching
with intense interest the negotiations leading up to a closer alli
ance between the two great branches of the family, it is worth
while to inquire, at least casually, into one phase of their present rela
tionship. It is a matter of coiunon knowledge, of course, that Great
Britain is the greatest customer of the United States. American pro
ducts and American manufactures find a ready and a profitable market
in all parts of the British empire. If there were no other than purely
material ends to be attained by means of an absolute arbitration treaty
between the two countries, such an arrangement would be justified.
Americans, however, are likely to look only upon one side of this
question. They are fully conscious of the fact, no doubt, that a dis
turbance of the peace between the two nations would mean immense
losses to producers and manufacturers in this country. But why not
look at it from the other side; that is, from the standpoint of the British
It is no exaggeration to say that perhaps not one in ten thousand in
this country has anything like an intelligent idea of the extent to
which the people of Great Britain are interested in the United States.
The term "people of Great Britain" is used advisedly, for while those
people are not all investors, they are all more or less concerned in the
outcome of investments made in this country. Any failure of these in
vestments to yield proper returns affects the financial, commercial and
industrial situation in Great Britain. A serious impairment in the
value of American securities would have an effect in Great Britain
hardly less depressing than the effect over here.
In an address recently delivered by George Paish, editor of the Lon
don Statist, before the Royal Statistical Society, he put the amount of
money involved in British investments in the United States at $3,500,
000,000. No less than $3,000,000,000 of this amount is invested in
railway bonds and stocks. To meet the interest and dividends which
this investment calls for, it is necessary to send over a great many
American dollars to England every year, but we get all of these back,
and much more, in return for our exports.
Without going into details relating to the exchange system operat
ing between the United States and Great Britain, .as between other na
tions, it is not difficult to point out the desirability of giving to this
relationship all the stability and permanency possible. The treaty of
arbitration may meet with opposition on the ground that it might lead
to those "entangling alliances" against which the nation has been
warned by many of its greatest citizens from George Washington down.
There would be force in this objection if the treaty were to take on any
of the old "offensive and defensive" features, but since it is a treaty
simply for the perpetuation of peace between the two nations, and
since it is intended to lead to treaties of a similar character between all
nations, opposition to it on th; ground named can hardly be anything
Alexander Hume Ford's experience with the Board of Supervisors
on a trip around West Maui makes interesting reading. The pic
ture he draws of a belt road around that portion of the isl
and, also tlia road to th; su-.iinit of Halenkala, will thrill those who de
light in good roads. Nj doubt either of these projects would be a
grand achievement, but. there are many roads on Maui at the present
time which require rebuilding before anything such as a road to Hale
akala could even ba thought of. However, these matters are in the
hands of Pogue and his supervisors, as Mr. Ford puts it, and on their
achievements shall Maui rise or fall.
Glory Be to Golf.
(By William F. Kirk.)
IT chanced that in the month of June, the month of blushing roses,
I saw a lot of men with clubs, all following their noses.
The day had dawned auspiciously, but soon the sky grew dark,
And rain was coming humming when we reached old Jackson park.
I sat beside a sad-faced man, two golf sticks in his fist.
"Don't tip it off," he whispered; "I'm a golfing journalist."
"By that I do not mean," quoth he, "that I'll report the game;
I mean that I'm a golfer, playing for my paper's fame."
"Delighted, sir, to meet you!" I exclaimed with one kowtow.
"Pray, let me tote your brassie you won't need a caddie now."
And that is how I chanced to meet a golfer named McTeeg,
A member in good standing of the Journalistic League.
While he was waiting for his turn to whang one off the tee
McTeeg grew confidf"' al, and he up and says to me:
"That fellow with the turned-up pants he was a star one time
He's covering conflagrations now; he proved to be a lime.
That guy that made that fancy drive him with the funny hat
Is doing 'rewrite' now on space, and glad he's getting that.
"Once Black was city editor, a corking man on news;
Black's reading copy now instead a man can't beat the booze.
That fellow with the big, red nose he had his chance to climb.
What? Have you got to beat it? Drop around again some time."
While I was fleeing furtively, like some poor soul in pain,
The journalistic golfers kept on playing in the rain.

What the Wrestlers, Boxers and Base
Ball Artists Are Doing.
Of course, you have heard of lit
tle Patsy Flaherty.
Well, this same Patsy made a big
league record one day. He struck
a man out on two pitched balls.
Steve Evans, who played right field
for the Cardinals, was the man who
played the goat on this occasion.
They were playing Philadelphia.
Patsy was twisting them over in
such a weird fashion that most of
the Cardinals were breaking their
backs trying to hit one on the nose.
Ed. Koney managed a single and
arrived at first base in a high state
Then Steve Evans came to bat.
Patsy snapped his jaws together and
then set about the task of giving
Evans the best he had. Steve is a
left-hand hitter, and missed the
first two that he swung at by a foot.
Then Patsy tried to rip Koney off
first- The very first instant that he
whipped tho ball to First Baseman
Bransfield, Evans dropped his bat
and wandered toward the bench.
"What's the matter, there; where
are you going, Evans? Come back
here,'' shouted Umpire Klein.
"Flaherty has only two strikes on
"You're blind," snapped Evans.
"I swung three times."'
"Quit fooling yourself," said
Klein, "Flaherty has pitched only
"Yes,'' peeped Evans; "but re
member when he whipped the ball
to Branstield? Well, I swung at
that one, too."
Silk O'Loughlin says Ty Cobb is
the hardest man in the league for
an umpire to please. Cobb, Silk
says, gets into more close plays than
any other player. He takes big
chances, generally has to be tagged
and gives the baseman only a foot
to touch him-
"They say Cobb spikes more
players, than anyone else," said
Silk. "If that is true it's because
he has more chances to spike base
men. He has ten chances to spike
basemen where most players have
"I have been on top of many
plays in which Cobb was the run
ner, and I never saw him cut any
one intentionally. Ty is always go-
ing away from the baseman. If the
man with the ball is in front of the
base, Ty goes behind it, and if the
baseman is behind the base Ty goes
Silk says he doesn't mind having
a decision disputed if the player
who kicks is a hustler.
1 wouldn't give a snap lor a
player who wouldn't kick if he hon
estly thought he was right," Silk
said. Umpires have to stand the
brunt of kicks, , but if the player is
one of the kind who is always think
ing of winning, and makes his kick
and walks away, I don't mind it.
The kicks that hurt come from play
ers who are wrong and want to alibi
themselves and get the umpire in
bad with the fans."
Keep your eye peeled for Eddie
Collins to make a new base stealing
record this season. This season he
purloined twenty in his first twenty-
four games, which gives him an
average of about one to a game. If
he comes anywhere near maintain
ing this average through the season
he will stick the record so high it
won't be touched for years.
Last year Eddie, of course, had
eighty stolen bases to his credit.
That averaged about one in every
two games. This season he is far
ahead of his average, and he seems
to have improved even over the re
markable record of last season.
Incjdentally, this ought to be the
big year of Collin's career. Ho is
hitting the ball with even more sav
age vigor than in previous seasons,
now that he has his eye on the
Last Sunday the Pnia's and Wai-
luku's crossed bats at the ball park
in Wailuku, and Paia walked off
with the game by a score of 4 to 2.
We do not wish to take any of the
glory of winning away from Paia ns
they put up a good consistent game
and deserved to win. The game
was thrown away in the first inning,
however when Kama, the Wailuku
shortstop threw the ..ball over the
first baseman's head, allowing three
men to score.
Paia came here with a reputation
as sluggers, but they could do no
slugging with Billy Bal's benders,
and had his catcher being able to
hold him, he would even have done
better. As it was he had the entire
Paia team on his stall at all stages
of the game, and the Wailuku bunch
outhit them two to one.
It was on the paths that Wailuku
fell down. Time after time they had
opportunity to score, but Iwne head
ed base running killed off their
chances. At one stage a double
steal was attempted and after the
Paia pitcher had walked into the
trap set for him, the runners laid
down in their tracks. As we said
last week this won't win ball games.
After first base is reached the run
ner should get off and tike a chance.
The team that takes the most chances
is the team that will score the most
runs, uet busy boys and practice
up on team work, and when you
have every player backing up his
side partner you will not have to
wait for a two base hit in order to
get from first to third.
The team goes to Lahaina to play
the Lahaina boys Sunday, and the
Japanese and Chinese will play on
the local diamond.
Near Accident on Pali.
What was probably the nearest
possible approach to a fatal accident
occured on the pali Monday even
ing. A car driven by young UocHett
of Lahaina was creeping around the
sharp turns loaded down with five
passengers, and at one of the out
side turns the steering gear refused
to work. The car continued straight
on hitting the stone wall, sending
the rocks hustling down the side of
the steep cliff. A rock large nough
to be of some service remained on
the level road and as the car passed
over, it became wedged under the
running board, thus stopping the
car. When the car came to a stop
the two front wheels were hanging
over the precipice, tilting ns it were
on the edge. It seemed that another
inch and the entire load of passeng
ers must have been dropped to the
rocks below. Accidents are becom
ming quite numerous on the pali
road recently, and while nothing
serious has occured so far, some of
them have been mighty close
calls. Workmen are on the roads
and they dump the loose dirt at the
turns making it almost impossible
to get around with any degree of
safety. Again there are ears cross:
ing from Ijahaina to Wailuku every
day carrying passengers which
should be in the junk heap, and not
allowed to continue in the rent
Robbery At Kipahulu.
Last Monday night the Kipahulu
Store was broken open and the sum
of 62425 stolen from the safe.
Sheriff Crowell went over to the
scene of the robbery early Tuesday
morning and has leen on the job
ever since, but up to this writing
he has not discovered anything to
warrant an arrest. The safe was an
old one that opened with a key,
and whoever the robber was he un
locked the safe, and secured the
money without disturbing anything
This of course would jwint to
6omeone familiar with the Store
and the conditions, but so far no
arrests have leen made.
Chang Loy, formerly of lahaina,
has finished his second year of study
at Harvard University, and is send
ing his vacation on a farm in Maine.
Lahaina to Have
The Lihnina Store people have de
termined to put up a new and mod
ern store building. The location has
not yet been decided upon, but that
one will lie erected in the near
future is a surety. This store will
be modern in every sense of the
word, and will compare favorably
with other stores on the island, and
Maui has more up to date stores
than any other island in the group
outside of Honolulu.
