Davis Cup Play Shows That Aus
tralians Had Weak Team
Since Maui is such a stronghold
of tennis, and everybody is interest
ed in the game, the following story
of how Australasia lost the Davis
Cup, will be .read with interest.
The Davis Cup is booked to take
its first sea-journey for four years;
and whether it will have to no a
nuielc return depends mainly on
Irishman Parke being soon lynched,
roasted, hanged or otherwise dis
abled. Ior Parke is the real causo
of the disaster. The destiny of the
Cup really depended on whether
Norman Brookes could beat him;
and the Australian Napoleon of the
game couldn't manage it. The
doubles were regarded as a certainty
for Australia; Brookes was looked to
to beat Dixon, and it was somewhat
of a foregone conclusion that Heath
couldn't stand up against either of
the Englishmen. In the struggle that
mattered, Brookes won the first
three strokes. Then Parke woke
up with n bang, and put the acid on
Brookes, who was regarded as acid
proof, to the alarming extent of 8 G,
G-3, 5-7, G-2. Brookes didn't seem
to have even a look in; he stood and
wondered at the drives the Irishmen
brought off. Their deadly accuracy
was something new to him. and he
was demoralised. Australia's tail
showed a downward curl, llfit all
was not lost yet. Hod Heat' facd
the music with Dixon. Heath won
the first set and lost each of the
other three (4-G.) So the English
men had one leg in tho.Cup, so to
speak. The doubles didn't lake
much arguing. thooKcs unci
Dunl'op romped away from Beamish
and Parke by G-L G-l, 7-5, and
that kept England's second leg
momentarily out of the way. On
tho final day Brookes met Dixon,
and Parke faced Heath Both were
almost foregone conclusions, and
only lasted three sets. Brookes took
his match G-2, G -l, 6-4; and that
left Parke and his Heath to worry
out what was the happen to the
Cup. Parko decided and by win
ning (G-3, G-l. G-l) collected the
Cup for England. A. B. Jones (N
S. V.), the emergency Australian,
made Brookes, who must have been
upset utter the nrst day, still more
uncomfortable on the second da'
Lowo (Eng. ,9 who had donkey-
licked Hice just previously in the
Vic. tourney, clashed with Joijes in
an exhibition match, and. Jones
emerged from tho wreckage on top
(G-l, G-2.) It must have make
Brookes w,onder why he hadn't
dropped Jones into tho big . match
and kept Heath out.
As nieirtioned last week, the Eng
lishmen's weak point is their service,

Rumored Changes In Departments L. L. McCandless

uncut water last week it is meet for
mo to remark that Link McCand
less on Monday received the sum of
one hundred and seven thousand
dollars in part payment fortius in
terest in the bin of Waikane. 1
understand there is a balance of one
hundred and forty three thousand
still to coinu to him. But even this
sum does not seem to change his
political heart and through his
henchman, Barron, he is throwing
the hooks into Fire Chief Thurston
with some hope of getting him re
moved from olliee.
This reminds mo of an incident
I heard repeated this morning. It
seems that Thurston during several
conversations with the mayor asked
to be retained in his office as the
head of the fire department. The
mayor made no promise. Whether
that set Charlie guessing, or whether
the talk that came from tho stree t
disturbed him, I know not but the
other day there was a petition pre
sented the mayor requesting that
Thurston bo continued in olliee.
It was, 'I beljeve, signed by all of
the merchants in the city. Yester
day! learnfcd thatThurston called oif
the mayor aiyl presented a written
application for the office and Fern
received it and said he would have
time later to .consider tho matter.
Within an holii from tjio time of
that meeting with Thurston the
