Slumber and sea fog wrapped the
ship everywhere save in the smoking-room,
where the smoke was very

Silonco then, and forth from the
smoking-room steal half a dozen
figures, slipping noiselessly through
tlio alleyways. They pause and
stoop before the doors of the state
rooms behind which slumber reigns.
Quickly they seem to be gathering
up something. Now they each have
an armful and there is a sudden
rush for the after deck, where the
six figures foregather. What they
have in their arms they begin to
hurl at each other, darting behind
lifeboats with each throw. Small
black missiles are hurtling through
the. air which is soon filled with
boisterous laughs and hilarious
taunts and challenges.

and hands reach forth for neatly
polished shoes. But the neatly
polished shoes are not there. Con
sternation reigns, heads pop in and
out, bells ring for stewards and loud
protests are heard.

The Former Team Making a Runaway
Race of it.
Baseball owes its popularity to its
very uncertainty. If we all knew
what was going to happen eaclr Sun
day there would bo very few ot the
ball games. Last Sunday both
games were won and lost, however,
just-as it was expected they would
be. Tho first gamo between Paias
and tho J. A. C. team, terminated
just as nine out of every ten games
between tho same teams is sure to
terminate. Tho Paia team, since
tho strengthening by the returned
school boys, is playing more as a
team, and though there is yet room
for improvement still they are
playing ball all the time. Foster
Robinson had control of the situat
ion last Sunday, and he was well
backed up by his team.
On the other hand, the J. A. C.
team was just one man, the pitcher.
If Meyer would not work so hard,
and make the opposing batter hit
tho ball, instead of trying to strike
them all out, ho would be saving
limself for the pinches, and ho
would soon find that his team would
be fielding better. Tho Japanese
are naturally good fielders, but they
depend too much on Meyer to do it
all, then when they get two or three
men' on' bases they take a baloon as
cension. Meyer pitched good enough
ball last Sunday to win, and ho has
a team behind him capable of win
ning, but they must play as a team,
and not got scared as soon as a run
ner is on the paths.
The second game wrs a merry-go-
round. It is really too bad tho
Camp One team is not stronger, as
when they are scheduled to play,
tho result is a foregone conclusion.
They held the Stars down for three
innings, but after that, they scored
just about as they pleased, and tho
final score was 15 to 0. This is tho
first Bhutout of tho season.
Next Sunday we should see two
of tho best games of the season. Tho
first game is between the Stars and
Paias. Tho Stars have not yet been
defeatod this year, and the Paias
have won every game played since
the new men have joined the team.
The second gamo between-the Ka-
luluis and Japs should bo equally
as good, as they are well matched.

Dr. Osmers Takes Vacation.
Dr. William Osmers leaves next
Monday on the Wilhelmina for a
month's trip to tho coast. It has
been sdycral years since tho doctor
has hrcd oven a day to himself. As
a rule people never think of a doctor
needing a rest, and perhaps under
ordinary circumstances they don't
need one. With Dr. Osmers it is
different. Ho is County nhvsician
for the district of Wailuku, planta
tion doctor for tho Wailuku planta
tion, federal quarantine doctor for
tho port of Kahului, and recently
has taken up the duties as physician
for tho Kahului Railroad. Besides
all this he has his privato practice
to attend to. This is strenuous
work, and the doctor is literally
played out. Dr. Beasloy of Hono
lulu arrived last Wednesday evening
to substitute for Dr. Osmers during
his absence. We wish tho doctor a
pleasant trip and hope ho will re
turn refreshed and in better health,
from his trip to the coast.

Roosevelt Tells How He Was Offered i
Nomination With a String.
A new party from the ground up
is the Roosevelt programme. After
a series ol uiscussjons with ins
lieutenants before leaving Chicago,
in which there were several clashes,
Colonel Roosevelt decided to cut en
tirely away from the party with
which his whole public career has
His decision was a disappoint

sidered an independent Republican
party, with which various state
organizations, might cooperate and

As an indication of his deter
initiation, ho said that when ho re
turned to Oyster Bay ho would coni

crats whom ho thought might wish
to join tho now party.
When ho had left Chicago, with
tho first, plans completed and his
leaders scattering to all parts of the
country, Colonel Roosevelt express
ed himself pleased with tho outcome
of convention week. He said ho had
a mass of letters and telegrams from
Democrats and Republicans offering
COLONEL TELLS SECRET HISTORY.
The Republican nomination, for
President, Colonel Roosevelt said to
night, wa3 his for tho asking on the
day that President Taft was re
nominated. Ho declined to accept
it, he said, on the terms under
which the offer was mado.
On his way back to Oyster Bay
tho former President gavo a glimpso
into the secret history of the last
day of tho convention. It was a
plan to seize control of tho conven
tion at tho last moment by a sudden
movo, overtarn tho Taft majority
and make Roosevelt the nominee.
This is the story as ho told '.it.
Early Saturday morning a group of
delegates from Southern states ar
ranged a privato interview with
Colonel Roosevelt. They told him
they had come to offer him the
nomination. They had with them
list of the known Roosevelt
delegates, and said thoy were author
ized to speak for a block of Taft
delegates who were to swing to
Roosevelt to avert a rupture in the
party. Tho number of these dole-
gates, they assured Colonel Roose
velt, was largo enough to nominato
him or any other candidate ho might
One condition was made, Colonel
Roosevelt continued. It was that
ho must accept tho nomination from
tho convention as then composed,
and not insist upon removal of tho
seventy-eight delegates who he con
tended were fraudulent.
Tho delegates told him, ho said,
that their band would stand together
on tho roll call for tho Presidential
nominee, but that it would bo hope
less for them to attempt to combine
with tho Roosevelt minority to uiv
seat the seventy-eight delegates.
IS OI'l'HRED A COMPROMISE.
Colonel Roosevelt said he inform
ed thcoo emissaries that if he should
bo nominated under theso conditions
ho would not accept tho nomination
Ho told them to go to tho delegates
whom they represented and bring
back to him a pledge signed by thirty
delegates agreeing to combine with
the Roosevelt delegates and make
