Ktihio and His Charges of Frear Caus
ing Much Discussion.
(By Manuel de Coste.)
I think it is mostly the women
.who tire of post divorce marriages
anil to tho women this brutnl deci
sion by tho supreme court will, in
some instances, bo received as a re
lief from bondage. Of course there
are exception? to the rule, and hero
and there you- may find a man who
will not go to tho expense of another
divorco from his already divorced
wife. That those who accepted de
crees in violation of tho law and
have again married are guilty of big-
. amy is carried on the back of the
decision just handed down. It is in
cases whore men or women refuse to
apply for a second divorco that I be
lieve the law against bigamy will be
enforced; incases where tho samo
form is gone through with for the
sake of righting ' an unintentional
wrong, I am .of tho opinion that no
jury would convict. But Geo, but
it has upset calculations here, this
decision of the court. Men who have
happily lived with women supposed
ly their wives find now that they
have been supporting other men's
wives. Legitimate children, born to
theso people now turn out to be ille-
gitimato, and all because judges
whom wo believe to bo honest did
not see where the legislature
erred in amending ono section of a
law and overlooking a law and there
by invalidating every divorce grant
ed. It is probable tho next legisla
ture may reenact the law, and in tho
meantime those who have married
' and separated on account of the de
cision will have to keep their wea-
' ther eyes on Breckons.
When I arrived home after the
ceremonies relating to tho laying of
tho corner stono of the new Library
of Hawaii I felt as though I had
taken part in a marathon race. I
have been up against poorly arrang
ed ceremonials, but none of them
eveV came up to this, for wo were
badly placed with Brother Tucker,
in a corner where it was positive
torture for him to reply to the re-marks
of those who addressad him.
We liad to pass through lines of cit
izens and other masons in grder to
reach a position assigned us on the
platform. Then tho weather was
bad, not through any fault of the
committee, and it increased tho dis-
f '.comfort of every oue. The prosy re
marks by David Starr Jordan were
as dry as tinder in contrast with the
rain; and poor Matheson, who had
tho address of the day was so far
down the lino on the program that
ho was talking to tho trees by the
time ho finished. The rain almost
cleared tho ground of people who
were not compelled to stay. Wo who
heard all of his remarks wero pleas
ed. Tho location of this Carnegie
building is disappointing to thoso
who have not been taken into the con
fidence of tho pcoplo. It will ulti
mately face King street, but just
now it is snut troin view by a mess
of school buildings, and a high
board fence. When tho public works
department gets time, and has tho
. inclination, I believe tho fence and
buildings will bo removed, and the
spaco from King Btreet to the en
tranco of tho library will bo parked
as an item in tho civic center.
It looks as though Kalanianaole
is to have financial backing sufficient
to press his charges before tho House
and possibly tho Senate It is said
' that Mr. Kinney will furnish tho

What the Wrestlers. Boxers and Base
Ball Artists Are Doing.
In full view of several thousand
horrified Giant rooters, J. Franklin
Baker, an industrious young ath
lete, who does odd jobs about third
base for the Athletics, walked to
tho plato in Shibo Park, learned
against..ono of ' Rube' Marquard's
masterpieces and deposited it on
tho wrong side of tho fence, after
which ho strolled leisurely around
tho diamond and anchored at tho
run terminal, a. few laps behind
Edward Collins, who happened to
be visiting at second base when the
collision,occurred. Baker's uncall
ed for brutality put the American
League on tho baseball map agaiti,
lor it enabled tho Athletics to win
the second'game of tho world's scries
by a score of 3 to 1 .
Thirty thousand Philadelphia pa
triots stayed up until nearly 4
o'clock to see their pets win, it
taking Connie Mack's aggregation
of ball players just ono hour and
fifty-two minutes o send the Giants
and their admirers back home,
looking as cheerful as tho second
plume on a hearse.
It was some time beforctho Giant,
regained consciousness, but just to
show that ono little defeat doesn't
make any difference, they gave a
rousing cheer as the McGraw men
left the battlefield, and served no
tice on tho jubilant Mack admirers
that they need expect no mercy
from the mighty Mathewson when
hostilities are resumed at the polo
grounds tomorrow afternoon.
The second session of the most
important series of baseball game
ever played in this country was one
of the prettiest' contests ever staged,
abounding in good pitching, clever
fielding, a fair amount of batting,
and enough errors to make the
spectators .-appreciate the beautiful
uncertainties of tho popular sport.
Up to the time that Baker booted
his passage through without any
stops, It was a battle of brawn and
brains between Marquard and Plank,
two of the greatest left-hand twirlers
the game has produced.
Plank pitched a splendid article
of ball and was given brilliant sup
port in the field. While tho Ath
letics got but four safe Bwats off
Marquard's delivery, an investiga
tion of tho work done by tho Giant
fielders will show that tho Mack
warriors had little difficulty in mak
ing Rube's acquaintance. They, hit
Marquard in nearly every inning,
and only tho agility of tho men be
hind him kept down the list of
Devoro had six chances in left
field, dropping ono of them, and
with the finish of the gamo ho was
wearing his tongue on his chest.
Marquard was partly responsible
for tho first run and wholly respon
sible for the last two, and thero was
little surprise when Manager Mo
Graw gave him the signal to go to
tho barn at tho end of tho soventh
Old Dr. Crandall was called in to
rcsuscitato tho gamo in tho eighth,
but life was extinct so far as tho
Giants wero concerned.
Tho big hit came in tho sixth
inning, with two out, and when the
fighting Athletics had touched up
Pitcher Marquard, of the National
League champions for only three
hits. Baker's smash was tho last
in tho gamo for tho American
Leaguers, but it was enough. And
just as important as Baker'was on

Dear Friend :
Thinking that you might perhaps
bo interested in tho fur business, I
take tho liberty of presenting you
with what seems to mo a most won
derful business proposition, and in
which, no doubt, you will take a
lively interest, and wiro me tho
amount of stock that you wish to
subscribe towards tho formation of
Tho object of this Company is to
operate a largo Cat Ranch-in or near
Oakland, where land can bo pur
chased cheap for this purpose.
To start in with, we will collect
about, say, one hundred thousand
cats. Each cat will average twelve
kittens a year. The skins run from
Ten Cents (10c.) each for tho white
ones, to Seventy-five Cents (75c.)
each for tho pure black. This will
give us twelvo million, skins
a year to sell at an average of Thirty
Cents (80c.) apiece, making our
revenue about Ten Thousand Dol
lars (810,000.00) a day gross.
A man can skin fifty cats per day
for Two Dollars (2.00.) It will take
one hundred men to operate tho
Ranch, and, therefore, the net pro
fit will thus be about Nino Thou
sand Eight Hundred Dollars (9,800..-
00) a day.
Wo will feed the cats on rats, and
will start a Rat Ranch next door.
Now rats multiply four times as fast
as cats. If wo start with ono mil
lion rats, wo will have, therefore,
four rats per day for each cat.
Now, then wo will feed tho rats
on tho carcasses of tho cats, from
which tho skins havo been taken,
giving each rat a fourth of a cat.
It will thus bo seen that tho bus
iness bo self-acting and automatic
all tho way through. The cat3 will

Portuguese Team on Maui.
John Medeiros of Paia has com
pleted nrrangeraents with tho Port
uguese team of tho Oahu league, to
como'over hero and' play a couplo of
games against a picked nine. Tho
Portuguese team havo won tho re
cent scries in the Oahu league and
aro considered tho champions of
that league, and so aro now playing
tho best gamo of any team which
could possibly bo brought hero.
Tho team that is to oppose them
should bo tho strongest possible ag:
grcgation that could possibly be
chosen as thoy aro to uphold tho
prestigo of Maui on tho ball field.
We understand the picking of a
team is to be left to tho captains of
tho different clubs in tho leaguo,
and this is a wise mDve, and we will
get a strong team. "
Tho Portuguese team will arrive
hero on Saturday, November 4, and
will play-threo games, ono on tho 4th,
5th and 6th.
Just as an experiment wo will
pick an all Maui team and sco how
near our choico coincides with tho
choice of tho captains:
Catchers, Joo Clement and Geo.
II. Cummings; pitchers, Henry Syl
va and Ed Lindsay ; first base, W.
Bal; second base, J. Garcia; third
baso and captain, C. E. Meyers;
shortstop, Harry Moto; left field,
II. Meyer; center field, K. Smytho;
right field, A. Robinson; substl
tutes, A, Jackson and M. Tanako.
The Attendance Last Sunday Was the
Largest Ever at Local Game.
That basebull is becoming moro
popular was shown last Sunday at
tho double header in Wailuku,
where was tho largest crowd that has
gathered in years; (when only local
talent was playing.) Everybody
was amply rewarded for spending
their two bits, as they saw some good
ball, and judging by tho rooting,
new fans were enrolled last Sunday,
who will be regular attendants here
The first game of tho day was be
tween the Paias and Wailukus, and
the Paias won by a score of 8 to 5.
The Wailuku team was all shot to
pieces before the game started, as'
several of their players were absent.
In tho very first inning Masaich'i,
tho third baseman was quite serious
ly injured, by being run into by a
Paia player in sliding. Later Kaleo
was injured, and tho doctors wero
kept busy for a whilo giving first
aid to tho injured. Paia won on
their merits, however, though tho
umpiring was a bit off.
The second gamo was the real
thing. It was a slugfest and tho
outfielders of both teams wero kept
busy. Tho Stars got a lead early
in tho gamo, and it was a stern
chaso all tho way for Kahului. Tho
boys from tho breakwater under tho
able leadership of tho redoubtable
Jock McGuire put up a noblo fight,
and pulled even in the eighth in
ning. When tho Stars camo up for
the ninth, Garcia was tho first at
bat, and right hero the Kahului
pitcher lost tho gamo. With Garcia
hitting the ball hard, tho Kahu
lui pitcher should havo walked him,
and let Clement catch him going to
second, as Joo was throwing like if,
rifle bullet. As it was Garcia hit,
and was sacrificed to second by Bal,
Cummings camo up and sent a liner
so close to tho foul line that tho
majority thought it was foul, but
the umpire thought otherwise, and
Garcia scored. In the Kahului half
thoy made a gallant effort but a
close decision of tho umpire again
went against them and thoy lost. It
was suro a day of close decisions,
and the umpire got his from tho
crowd. This should not be, as a
good umpire is hard to find in any
town, and they arc scarcer than hens
teeth in this burg.
Tho games tomorrow will bo be
tween tho Stars and Paias, and tho
Kahuluis and Wailukus, both games
at Kahului. Tho first gamo will be
gin at 1:30.
