THE MAUI NEWS, SATURDAY, OCTOBER 7, 1911
What (he Wrestlers, Boxers and Base
Ball Artists Are Doing.
The New York Nationnls have
cinched the pennant in the Nationa
league, and Philadelphia in the
American league. The last time
these two teams fought it out in the
world's series New York won. At
that time, however, Connie Mack
put hia faith in the erratic Rube
Waddell, and the Rube fell off the
wagon, and Connie Mack never for
gave him. If New York wins the
series this year they will play better
ball than they have ever played be
fore. The Philadelphia team is as
near a baseball machine as human
intelligence can make it.
Bill Rice again demonstrated that
he is all the class so far as sprinting
is concerned. So far they have
been unable to dig up anyone capa
ble of extending Bill in the 100
yard dash. If someone who knew
how could get hold of Rice and teach
him to get into his stride quicker he
would be an awful hard man for
any of the cracks to beat.
Another white hope was eliminat
ed when Jim Flynn put the rollers
under the Oklahoma giant. Great
things were expected of this one but
he has gone the way of the others,
and now Lester is the only one left,
and he muft show a lot more class
than he has so far, to have a look
in with the smoke.
They are taking off their hats all
over the country to this English
man, Matt Wells. After the deci
sive way in which he beat up the
New York pride, Knockout Brown,
and then trimmed the clever Abe
Attell there is little left but to'say that
he must be some fighter, though he
has not yet shown the fans that he
possesses that necessary asset, the
Unfortunately, it appears as
though the Britisher is in the same
class as Packey McFarland, a 135
pound instead of a 133 pound fight
er. In all his recent ring mixups
Wels has invariably sidestepped
that lightweight limit, showing very
plainly that he is just a trifle too
heavy to qualify for the title against
Much as they would like to see
Wells in action in San Francisco,
the fans probably won't be granted
this opportunity. While they are
drawing 830,000 houses for ten
rounds around New York and while
he continues to beat fellows like
Brown, the Englishman certainly is
not going to be strong for taking a
4,000 mile ride or more of a chance
over the 20 round route. . Nobody
can blame him for this either. He's
doing very well where he is.
Wells will be in great demand
back in New York from now on .
He can have almost anything that
he asks for and there are many good
boys in the east with whom he can
get a lot of money, just what all the
fighters are looking for in these stir
ring times. .
The contracts for the belt road
work which were secured by W. R.
Patterson, have leen turned over to

While standing on the running board
of Larseu's new Buick, C. J. Schoening
was thrown off, and sustained a shaking
up and a fracture of two ribs. . The acci
dent was caused by Larsen giving the car
a quick swerve to avoid some rocks in
An offical definition of flirting
was given by Captian Halpin, act
ing head of the detective bureau, of
Chicago when a young woman,
whose services as "city flirt" had
been accepted, started down States
street, accompanied by a detective.
'If a man only looks at the young
lady," said the captain to the plain
clothes man giving him instructions
in his duty, ' 'or if he goes up to her
takes off his hat and ask if she isn't
Miss So-and-so, and then passes on,
well that isn't exactly flirting. But
if he sticks to her and ask her to
walk with him and really gets of
fensive, well, that's flirting and the
man is a masher."
After a two hours' stroll on State
street, the young woman returned
to the central police station without
encountering a single masher."
'I saw almost every man on State
street between 3 and 5 o'clock,"
said the young woman, "and not
one was rude to me, or attempted
to speak to me. It surely seems as
if Chicago men are gentlemen.
