WAILUKU, MAUI, II., SATURDAY, JUNE 29, 1912.
New German Ambassador Goes (o
London As Iron Man.
Tho choice of Baron Marstiliall
von Bieberstein as German Ambas
sador to London is regarded by
many in the well-informed inner
circles of Berlin as the last net but
one in the great tragic drama of the
-Anglo-German relations. This opi
nion conflicts diametrically with the
.view of the London papers, that the
baron is being sent to England as a
"dove of peace."
The Baron Marschull is ript an
expert in diplomatic negotiations
and not a liquidator of dillicult situ
ations, lie is not a man of com
promise, but a very strong man,
capable of acting energetically and
decisively at the critical moment.
His whole remarkable career at
Constantinople has been one long
succession of crushing diplomatic
victories, gained over his rivals by
the sheer weight of his energy.
GERMANY AWAITS IIBR CHANCE.
It is looked upon hero as a great
mistake to regard his dispatch to
London as an indication of Ger-
many's desire to come to terms with
England. It is held, on the con
trary, that no s ch desire exists and,
therefore, Von Tiieberstoin goes to
London in order to be there when
tho moment arrives for Germany to
strike her long-planned blow at
That time is approaching. It
has not been delayed by Lord Hal
danc's mission to Berlin. It is
generally thought in Berlin that
Lord Haldane has failed to achieve
any definite results. Germany could
not respond to his advances without
sacrificing her ambitions. She will
not sacrifice them, but will insist
upon their fulfillment.
When the moment comes to deal
with England, Germany will need
a strong man in London. She
will need a man who knows how to
advance his chance when the de
sirable moment has come to strike .
MAN FOR THE PLACE.
When Germany strikes, it will
not be in a declaration of war, but
silently, swiftly, probably at the
time when England hampered and
harassed by some kind of labor
struggle like tho recent coal and
labor strikes which paralyzed her
No one but tho astute German ob
server in London can tell when that
moment arrives. The BaroivMar
schull is perhaps the only man in
German diplomacy who is equal to
such an occasion and for this reason
he is being sent to London His
appointment forebodes more than
ever tho coming clash between Eng
land and Germany. Such protesta
tion of friendly intentions as accom
pany his appointment aro freely
made in tho diplomatic game, but
deceive no one who is familiar with
tho relentless methods of German
FAMOUS TELEGRAM TO KRUBGER.
Von Bieberstein was tho real
author of the famous telegram to
President Krueger of tho Transvaal,
congratulating him on the defeat of
tho Jameson raiders, This telegram
brought Germany to the verge of
war with England sixteen years ago,
' The message has generally been as
cribed to tho Kaiser, but actually
emanated from Von Bieberstein,
who was then tho Foreign Minister.
The fact is also that Baron Von
Bieberstein is tho bitter enemy of
England and ho is tho real author
of-"' tho anti-English policy which

Baseball has taken hold of thoj
public in a way that is gratifying to
those who have striven to perpetuate
the National game on Maui. Tho.
sport needs tin- patronage of the
public, ami those, who witnessed
tho game last Sutklay wore well
rep.iid with at least one' very good
game, full of excitement. This was
the second game between the Ka
huluis and the Stars. It was all
tho Stars could do to win out, and
it 'was anybody's game until the
last inning was played. The score
dues not indicate the game as it
really was, but those who witnessed
this game were kept on their nerves
during the whole nine innings. It
had been predicted that the Stars
nad a sure tiling, tint, as lias so
often happened in baseball, there is
many a slip between the cup and
the lip. McCauley pitched a good
game for the Kahuluis and kept his
opponents down to a few scattering
hits. Tho Kahuluih outplayed, out
batted and in fact played all around
ino stars last Sunday, and it was
merely the heady team work of the
Stars, and their ability to force a
few runs in at' the opportune time,
that won them the game. For tho
Kahului team special mention
should bo made of Fred Swan, who
played a beautiful game, and who
has won for himself the title of
champion third-baseman on Maui.
He now has a cinch on this base for
tho All-Maui team, and it would
not be surprising to see him do
somo things during the Maui-llono'
lulu series. Pitcher Bal of the. Stars
was hit on his right wrist in tho
first inning when ho went to bat.

pitching during tho game. Tho

Maui's Fourth of July.
This year the Fourth' on Maui
bids fair to outdo any previous
effort in the way of sports of all
kinds. The races will be up to the

The Juvenile Bostonians.
Praise for their work on the stage,
and conrplimonts for their ladylike
ittitude off tho stage, is all that can
be heard of the Bostonians. Their
work is of the highest class, and
their stay hero on Maui has been a
genuine pleasure to all. Nor is the
pleasure all ours, as we hear-from
Honolulu that when tho girls leave,
they will all be boosters for our
lovely island. They say they have
forgotten Honolulu already in their
great love for Maui. They have all
made a hit individually and collec
tively, but Dode Canfield's appear
ance on the stage is tho cue for. an
outburst, even before sho speakes a
line. Sho has made an immense
hit. It is hoped wo may have more
shows here of the same high calibre
as the Bostonians.
