Ball Artists Are Doing.
"Star ball players are seldom
content to play their position," dc
' dure Billy Euins, American League
umpire. "Outfielders hanker for
the infield or the pitcher's job. In-
fielders want to play the outfield or
. go on the mound. Few long to be
"Ty Cobb is perhaps tho greatest
outfielder, all things considered, the
' game has ever known. He always
wanted to be a Ditcher. It is not
uncommon to see him working with
a catcher instead of cavorting in th
" outfield. Cobb, by the way, has a
varied assortment of slants.
There is Hal Chase, premier
first baseman. Hal has designs on
' second, and may play there next
season. He scoffs at the idea that
a lefthander cannot play second and
make doublo plays. He also likes
to nitch and usually goes to the
rubber in exhibitions."
"Doc' White is strong for tho
outfield and spends time playing
" the garden. Although a high-class
southpaw pitcher, White hopes to
play the field when his pitching
cunning deserts him. His speed
: and batting make him look good.
- "Joe Birmingham, one of the
" game's greatest throwing outfielders,
'.prefers tho infield. He played
second as a bush leaguer and wants
to get back to the first line of de
fense. Joe had a notion to turn
catcher and tried tho job one spring,
.' only to pass it up. He didn't fancy

"Barney Pelty, who is one of the
best pitchers in tho American League
r when ho is right, likes tho infield
His work at third and short is ex
cellent, but his batting is so light
- that he will scarcely land an infield
job when he gives up pitching. ,
"Although one of tho greatest of
shortstops, Hans Wagner likes the
.. outfield best. He was of sucli value
to Pittsburg at short that he was
. simply forced to play there.
Ball players take delight in put
ting up "jobs" on unsophisticated
bushers breaking into the game
and so it happened that PatBohen,
the Oakland pitching recruit from
Napa, got "his" when ho left the
farm to become a sure-enough "ball
player. Ho accompanied tho Oaks
., on a trip to Portland, and no soon
;'er had the train pulled out of tho
Oakland molo than the players were
together trying to trap the young

ly came of pool. Of course, Bohen
was willing to be one of the crowd,
and wanted to know where the
poolroom was. Hoffman explained
that the little door at the forward
end of the car, marked "A," was
the poolroom, and the other door,
marked B," was the bowling
alleys. Bohen opmeu that it was
nice of the railroad people to pro
vide such amusement for tho travel
ers, and started for the poolroom.
He opened the door and walked into
a private drawing-room, where one
of tho passengers was just preparing
to retire. Then the gang gave the
busher the horso laugh.
Last Friday afternoon vord came
to tho Sheriff's oflico, that u bur-

Money Available for Important
teusion Soon to Be Made.
An important extension to tho
Kula pipe lino, and ono which En
gineer Harvey lias conteinieu an
along, to be an absolute necessity,
is soon to be built. This is a line
running from the present intake, lo
Puohakamoa. As it is nowi the
long continued drought has drained
the pipe until it is almost empty,
but with the new extension, and tho
reservoir which will bo built a Wai-
akamoa in connection with it, a
drought will be unknown along the
line of the pipe.
Even now, though the people in
Kula are suffering for the want of
water, it is partially their own fault.
Almost every resident of the Kula
district has a cistern, and had they
been far sighted enough to have fill
ed their cisterns before tho present
drought, they would not now be
short of water. Some residents filled
their cisterns and kept them full at
all times, and now they have water,
while their less careful neighbor is
in want. Plans and specifications for
the now extension are ready and the
commission will advertise for bids
in a few days.
The contract for supplying 38,000
feet of pipe for tho new line from
Makawao to Paia has been let to
the Honolulu Iron Works. Their
bid for the pipe was $5875. The
work of laying this lino will begin
Manager Weinzeimer Returns
Manager Weinzeimer of the Pio
neer Mill Company, returned to the
islands on the Mongolia last Tues
day morning. Mr. Weinzeimer has
been away about four months, and
has toured both Europe and Ame
rica. Ho spent most of the time in
Germany and Austria. He arrived
in New York, just as the cold
weather struck the Atlantic coast,
and says it was terribly cold. Mr.
Weinzeimer was with Senator Fair
child in New York, and it was he
who was near him when he was
stricken with pneumonia. Travel
ing across America Mr. Weinzeimer
says it was intensely cold till after
he had crossed tho Sierras, and he
knew then by the climate that he
was nearing Hawaii. Mr. Weinzei
mcr says no nau a line time, but is
glad to get back, and never expects
to stay away so long again. There
was quite a celebration ready for him
Tuesday evening at Lanaina, even
the Japancso band being on hand to
welcome him, but they were all dis
appointed, as he did not arrive on
Maui till Wednesday business keep
ing him over in Honolulu. The
celebration was held over also and
all were on hand to welcome him,
when ho stepped ashore Wednesday
Camp 9. Sheriff Crowell was ready
to go to Honolulu, and the matter
was put in the hands of assistants.
Tho Sheriff kept a sharp lookout at
McGregor's for any suspect who
might board tho boat. At Lahaina
ho was watching closely when the
passengers came on board.
Ho spotted a Filipino whom he
recently had up for gambling, and
after looking him over carefully be
gan to question mm. his answers
wero not very satisfactory, and tho
Sheriff also noted that he had a
complete outfit of new clothes. On
lurtlier examination more new
clothes were found in his bag. Ar
riving at Honolulu he was arrested
and searched and considerable money
found. Tho Sheriff brought him
