THE MAUI NEWS, SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER S, 1911
McDuffie Makes Catch.
Chief of Detectives McDuflie who
f came up from Honolulu Wednesday
made an arrest, which does credit
to the ability of the detective force
of the Honolulu police.
Last February, a large' quantity
of jewelry was stolen from the Sea
Bide Hotel, the property of a family
stopping there, who were relatives
Congressman Nick Ixmgwbrth
The value of the stolen jewelry was
between 62,000 and $3,000. The
police were immediately on the job,
and have stayed on it ever since,
resulting with the arrest Thursday,
of a young man named Johnson,
who has been working at Paia for
When the police first took up the
case, the Chief had Johnson on the
carpet as a suspect, but his story
was so straightforward he was let
go. For a long time no clue was
obtainable. The boy began selling
the rings at prices far below their
actual value, and some of these fell
into the hands of the police. Since
then the trail has led straight to
When arrested about $1,500 worth
of the jewelry was found on him.
He was taken back to Honolulu on
the Mauria Kea last night. t
The Puunene Club Crew.
.' After months of hard work, and
harder coaching, Captain Hughes
and his crew, left on the Mikahala
Saturday for Honolulu, where they
will finish their training in the new
barge. All the boys got away ex
cept Billy Chillingsworth, who goes
today. It is understood that one
of the veteran oarsmen and coaches
of Honolulu will take the boys in
hand, and Captain Hughes will be
able to cast oil the cares of coaching
and devote all his time to rowing.
The boys have worked hard, and
while we have heard much criticism
of the crew, still the defects in this
crew, and no doubt there are defects,
can be found and remedied next
year". For their hard and conscien
tious work, if for nothing else, the
crew deserves the encouragement
and well wishes of every Mauite.
They have gone to Honolulu and
will match their skill with the more
experienced oarsmen of the Capitol,
in their own balliwack. If they
win we should all shout for joy. If
they should lose they will not be
discouraged, but will go back next
year, and the next, with a better
crew, till they do win. Here's to
the Maui crew.
Baseball last Sunday,
The reorganized Wailuku baseball
team can hardly be said to have
covered themselves with glory last
Sunday. Of course it was a sort of
experimental game, and no doubt
a better exhibition is possible from
these same players. Most of the
players on both the Wailuku and
Waikapu teams have not been play
ing ball for some time, and there
was a woeful lack of team play
Flemming, who started to pitch for

for a few innings the Waikapu's
had a regular batting bee. As the
game progressed and tne players
were changed about, Wailuku be
gan to overtake the Waikapu's and
. ( he finish of the game was as good
as any seen on tne local diamond.
At the beginning of the eighth
inning the Wailuku's needed four
runs to win. The Waikapu bunch
were retired in one, two, three order
by Wallace, who had succeeded
Flemming in the box. The ninth
inning was a repetition of the eight.
While the Waikapu's were being
retired, the home team fell on the
offerings of Enos, and walloped out
the necessary runs to win.
1 hero will be a game tomorrow
at Kahului, between the Kahului's
and the Wailuku's at 2.30 p. m.
