THE MAUI NEWS, SATURDAY, DECEMBER 16, 1911
What the Wrestlers, Boxers and Base
Ball Artists Are Doing.
The Honolulu Bulletin, is just
about aa far from the mark regard
ing the bowling alleys of the terri
tory, as in all other sporting matters.
Recently that paper made a state
ment that Honolulu had the only
all maple alleys in the territory.
Orer here on Maui we have two al
leys at Puunene and two at Wai
luku, that cannot be surpassed any
where in America. The alleys are
of maple, and in the case of the
Puunene alleys the equipment is
The San Francisco Examiner has
the following on Barney Joy :
Barney Joy is coming back. Re
member Barney? Of course, you
do. Barney has long been famous
as the possessor of one of the finest
specimens of the osicephalio cra
nium in existence. Barney was for
tunate enough to pitch for the Seals
through one whole season. Then he
was sold to the Boston Red Sox, a
misguided scout from Beantown hav
ing seen Barney in action in one of
those games where headwork wasn't
needed. How Barney could pitch
in a game like that! Anyway, Bar
ney went back to Honolulu at the
end of 1907 season and has since
pitched for the Aloha Demons and
the Banana Sundaes and several
others of the Honolulu City League
clubs. They have howled more
against him than for him in the
Paradise of the Pacific.
' Boston took action on Barney
just a few weeks ago, selling him to
Spokane. It is understood that a
postage stamp was involved in the
transaction. At any rate, the re
appearance of his name in the
columns of organized baseball re
ports brought to Barney the realiza
tion that he has not been forgotten.
So he is comingl back. He has
written to Spokane that he will re
port for duty with the coming of the
new season. Also he is in great con
dition right now.
', The curious part of it is that Spo
kane is rejoicing already. Fans there
seems to be of the opinion that the
big Hawaiian is a world beater, a
whirlwind, a thing of beauty and a
joy forever as a twirler.--' Still, there
will be a few skeptical San Francisco
fans who will regard Barney as a
large bunk of imported citrus until
he demonstrates differently. The
swath that Barney almost cut in the
Coast four years ago continues to
linger in memory.
Recently football experts here de
