WAILUKU, MAUI, T. H., SATURDAY, AUGUST 17, 1912.
'flic Two Leaders I'lay Rings Around
the Tail Unders.
Jlotli tin- Stars and Pain's had an
e.isy lime of it winning lliuir games
last Sunday. Of course tho Star
Camp One game was a foregone con
clusion, hut the Japanese team was
expected to put up a fight against
The Starsstartcd right oil in the
second inning, and scored live runs.
This took all the fight out of the
Camp One team, and the rest of the
game was a procession. There were
no features to this game, other than
the continuans coaching of some of
the Star players, trying to instill a
little life into the play.
The second game started off good,
and for five innings was as pretty a
contest as one could wish to see.
Tlien the Japanese right fclder got
hold of the hall and held on to it
while the Paia runners were circling
the hags. After much persuasion
the fielder turned "the hall over to
Meyer, who straightway threw it ten
feet over- the third hasemans head.
Then the haloon went up and stayed
up for the rest , of the game. The
final score was 11 to 2.
Tomorrow afternoon the Stars and
Pain's meet for the third time in the
series. The last time these, two
teams met, those who attended saw
a real hall game, and there seems no
reason to believe that either team
wiMP found wanting in this the
final game. If the Stars win this
game, they win with it the cham
pionship for the season. If Paia
--wins they will be tied with the Stars,
and in all probability a series will
have to he played to decide the
championship. Of course there is
the possibility of Kahului breaking
loose again and trimming the Stars
as they did before.
There seems to be a feeling in
Honolulu that the best time for an
All Maui team to go down there is
during the regatta. This scheme

The annual harvest festival at
Puunene was postponed, because of
the strike of the Inter-Island cap
' tains, and this morning a largo
delegation of tennis enthusiasts ar
rived on the Claudine from Hono
lulu. This Puunene festival has
always been the great event of the
year on Maui, and this year pro
mises to surpass anything heretofore
attempted. Many new features
have been added to the water carni
val this year, one of which the
ladies swimming race ia sure to
prove highly entertaining.
A bowling team is on hand from
Honolulu, to compete with the
Puuneno team, and the local boys
are determined to wipe out the de
feat of the team which visited
Honolulu tonic time ago.

Some Early Reminiscences of the Old
Makawao I'olo Club.
Twenty years or so ago on Satur-;
day afternoons in "the good, old
summer time," upper Makawao
presented a lively appearance.
Strings of ponies with and without
riders were to he seen approaching
it from all points of the compass.
L. von Tcmpsky and his Morgan
ponies were kicking up eight miles
of Kula dust trotting in from
Erehwon Cattle Station, the Bald
win and Dickey hoys leading other
frisky animals were clattering along
the six miles of hilly country from
Haiku) Ben Baldwin and Lorrin
Andrews were jogging upwards fro;n
Kaluanui, and the Copp's (the
judge, George and Harry) were
coining slowly over from Kokomo.
These together with a few Maka
wao players were soon scurrying up
and down Miner's field in pursuit
of the polo hall. And such a game I
Hard riding, hard knocks, hard
words, and hard feelings (for the
moment only,) but the fun and

Individual play was preeminent and
team-work, beyond obedience to the
sharp commands of tho captain was
not thought of.
Itiding-off was not tho especial
duty of No. 1 ; they all did it at
times, and No. 4 did not worry,
himself about guarding goal but
carried the ball as often as oppor
Splendid horsemanship was the
feature of these occasions for most
of the mounts were half-broken (at
least to polo) and a bucking con
test on tlie sule-lines or a runaway
down the length of the field were
During one afternoon the late
Judge Lorrin Andrews rode a half-
wild bucking mule bareback through
a period of play not advancing the
ball much, hut retaining his seat in
an admirable manner. The game
was played under the English rules
and not according to the American
regulations now in use, so that off
side plays were most troublesome.
When the nmpiro thr6w the ball in
from the center of the field the
eight players, four from each goal
line, charged furiously toward it,
No. 1 first, No. 2 following and
then No. 3 and 4.
Once at a holiday tournament be
tween tho Reds, Whites, and Blues
the two No. 2's (Arthur Baldwin
and Herbert Dickey) following too
closely and too rapidly behind their
respective No. l's collided, their
ponies meeting head-on and piling
up in the center of tho field to tho
horror of tho many spectators pre
sent. Arthur Baldwin was quite
seriously hurt but Herbert Dickey
escaped without especial injury as
did also the two ponies. Charging
from tho goal lines was soon after
ward abandoned by the club.
Later on tho attention of tho
members was directed toward team
play by a crushing defeat on tho
Sunhy8ide grounds in an interisland
game with Oahu. Four Honolulu
players (two Damons and two
Judds) under the captaincy of tho

It Is Quite Right That Wc Should State
Whit We Mean by It.
It is stilted that the United Stales
Semite is likely to adopt a resolu
tion statimr precisely what the
"Monroe doctrine'' means in the
American language, and that the
appropriate committee is now care

to an explicit affirmative statement,
and, if the American people do not
understand it, it is hardly to he ex

Most well-informed persons know
that what President Monroe said in
his message to Congress was, first,
in reference to the then unexplored
Pacific Northwest, that territory on
the American continents must no
longer he considered as open to
"colonization'' by European powers
the word colonization then including
tho assumption of sovereignty.
The second proposition had re
ference to an intent, or supposed in
tent, of the European powers calling
themselves collectively the "Holy
Alliance" to re-establish by armed
force the authority of the King of
Spain over the South American re
publics which had then recently
achieved their independence. Presi
dent Monroe stated to Congress that
any such attempt would be consider
ed in this country as an "unfriend
ly" act, which is the diplomatic
way of saying that it should not be
done if wc could help it.
Of course, no European country
now proposes to do cither of the
things which President Monroe thus
mentioned in terms of disapproval.
The Monroe doctrine, however, is
as emphatically asserted as over it
was, but clearly with some meaning
different from that which President
Monroe had in mind.
Some Americans seem to think
that no European government must
do or encourage on this continent
anything which upon tho whole we
do not liku. That, however, is not
Probably tho Monroe doctrine has
now come to mean that we should
consider it an unfriendly act for any

American territory, permanently

an armed force, or acquire by lease
or otherwise any land suitable for a
naval or military station tho last
being for tho reason that no power
would have any desire to establish
such a station except for uso in a
war with the United States.
It is to be hoped that the Senate
will devise a formula which all can
understand. It is a serious matter,
because no such formula can ever
have any force except that which the
American people put behind it in
battle-ships. It has not been and
probably never will bo accepted by
other nations as international law.

Another embarrassment arises
from the importance of so wording
our statement of tho great doctrino
that tho sensibilities of our sister re
publics shall receive no injury.

our support in opposing tho parti

Not a Failure By Any Means Says
Emphatic contradictions were au
thoritatively given to a rumor that
the Battelle process, for increasing
the sucrose extraction from cano
and making while sugar in tho
plantation mills, had ployed a fail
ure in the elaborate experimentation
conducted the past grinding season
at a special plant erected for tho
purpose at Ewa plantation, under
the supervision Director C. F.
Eckart the Hawaiian Sumir
Planters' Association's experiment
."Tlio Battelle process is not a
failure," said Georgo F. Da vies, '
chairman of the experiment station
committee,, when the rumor was
mentioned to him. "I think I
know where the rumor came from,
but it is not true.
"Naturally, with such an exhaus
tive experiment afe was planned, it
took a good deal of time to install
the experimental plant, consequent
ly it was rather late in the season
when a start was made. Therefore,
there was not quite time enough to
work out all the details necessary
for conclusive results.
"Enough has been proved, how
ever, to make it certain that an im
portant part of the process can he
used with profitable effect in tho
sugar factories. Two great objects
are involved in the process. Until
the director places his signaturo up
on his final report it Would not bo
advisable to go into particulars of
these things for publication it
would be too technical for the aver
age reader anyway.
' Yet it may bo said that, so far
as ono of the objects in question is
concerned, very gratifying results
have been reached. With regard
to the other matter, while there has
been a measure of success, further
experimentation will ho required to
demonstrate that the process can be
made all that is hoped from it.
"It must be remembered, also,
that when tho process is utilized in
a sugar factory there will bo adapta
tions to work out which are not
fully applicable on the small scale
of an experimental factory such as
tho ono at Ewa.
"So far as the experiment has
been carried, however, it may' safe
ly ho stated that tho results obtained
arc highly encouraging, and the re
port that tho Battelle nrocess is a
failure can bo emphatically denied."
It is not a failure," promptly
responded E. E. Paxton when asked
if tho rumor was correct. Mr. Pax-
ton was chairman of the committee
when the matter was taken up and
has continued his interest in it as a
"One or two phases of the results'
may not bo just as satisfactory as
desired, but there is enough of tho
process which has turned out well to
make it very valuable in the manu
facture of sugar."
