Chinese Champions Want Valley
Islanders to Flay Ball Games
Just how our ball players feel
about going up ngainst the great
Chinese tAim is all explained in the
following communications. It seems
a pity that young Chinese athletes
seem to imbued with the professional
idea and it is to be hoped that the
Maui boys will keep clear of any such
proposition. The letters follow:
Mr. George Cunimings,
So much has been said already
concerning the special series of ball
games between the All-Mam aggre
gation and the All-Chinese team of
this city that I thought I ought to
begin the formal negotiations.
I learned that quite a number of
Maui players expect to be in Hono
lulu during Carnival Week, and
that they looked upon the baseball
proposition very favorably. I think
that it is not a bad idea to pull off
the series in Carnival Week, s:iy,
the beat two out of three games; the
first game to come off on Friday,
Feb. 21, and the second on Sunday,
the 23rd. Saturday, the 22nd, will
not be a good day on account of the
big parade. However, if a third
game is necessary, we can have it on
Monday, the 24th.
Some of your players, such as
Fonter Robinson, Dunn and the
Baldwin brothers are now in the
city and will be ready for action at
any time. They participated in
the recent game between the All
Schools and All-Chinese and showed
up in great style.
I should like to offer one or two
suggestions in regard to the terms,
in order to save time. We will be
ready under any of the following
conditions: winners take 80 of
the gross and losers 30, 75 and 25,
Gr 70 nnd 30. You notice that I
did not say anything alxuit the ex
penses, etc , for you can settle that
part among yourselves. The games
will undoubtedly draw good crowds.
There is one thing that I would
ask that is, you m et get up a
good strong team, equally ns strong
as that of last year or even stronger,
.to include Louis Soares, your won
derful little catcher. I hope that
you will give this matter your
attention, as your name was sug
gested to me by Foster Robinson.
You probably are aware of the fact
that we have a great deal to attend
to, for the boys are preparing to
make another trip to the United
States next month.
Captain Albert Akana and myself
expect to hear from you very soon.
Very truly your3,
KIM TONG 110,
Manager, All-Chinese B. B. Team.
Mr. A. Q. Marcallino,
I enclosed herewith copy of letter
written to the manager of the All
Chinese Baseball Team, which you
will find self explanatory. They
offer us an invitation on the basis
of 80-20, 75-25 or 70-30 of the
gross receipts. We would prefer
not to come down on any percentage
basis; all we ask is that our legiti
mate expense be paid, and in this
connection we would like to have
you talk things with them, as, hav
ing handled the last excursion, you
would be in position to give them
Kindly let me hear from you on
this point, if convenient.
Very truly yours,
Secretary, Maui Athletic Ass'n.
Mr. Kim Tong Ho,
Manager, All-Chinese B. B. Team,
Your favjr of Feb. Cth, addressed
to Mr. Geo. Cummings, and sug
gesting a few games between your
team and an All-Maui Team, has
Ix en referred to me fur reply.
The percentage basis which -you
suggest in your letter does not meet
wHh the approval of this Associa
tion. We would however suggest
that you invite the All-Maui Team
to Honolulu on similar lines as the
last trip, i. e. you to pay the neces
sary transportation, hotel and meals
while in the city. We do not want
to make any money out of the
series, and this Association caters
to nothing but good, clean sport.
We believe that a series of games be
tween the All-Chinese team and an
All-Maui team would be a drawing
card, and have no doubt that the
receipts from the games would be
satisfactory to you. While our boys
are not in excellent form just at
present, we are getting some good
practice, and hope that we may be
able to give you a good game or two
while in the city. Our boys have
already started into practice in anti
cipation of meeting you.
We would like to make another
suggestion, and that is, that one of
the games be played on the after
noon of the 22nd. The parade will
surely not last all day, and that be
ing a holiday, we have no doubt
that there would he a large crowd
to see the game. The 21st, we be
lieve would be a bad day, as there
will lie racing at Kapiolani Park.
which will no doubt occupy the
whole day. Racing events, as you
are no doubt aware of, generally
tend to occupy the whole day, and
it is our opinion that the 21st
would not prove as satisfactory as
the 22nd. Even if the game is to
be played at 3:30 or 4 o'clock in
the afternoon, we believe this would
be the belter day to select.
Kindly let me hear from yon at
your earliest convenience, and if it
is agreeable, we would suggest that
you make the necessary arrange
ment with the Inter-Island Steam
ship Co for the transportation of
ten men from Wailuku to Honolulu
and return. Or, if you prefer, you
may arrange the matter through
Mr. A. Q. Marcallino, to whom we
are writing by this mail.
f Very truly yours,
Secretary, Maui Athletic Ass'n.
Mr. John Merle Davis, for eight
years General Secretary of the Naga
saki Y. M. C. A- was a visitor to
Wailuku this week. Mr. Davis was
in the same class that of 1899
with Mrs. R. B. Dodge at Oberlin,
and at Hartfort Theological "Semi
nary in the same class with Mr.
Dodge. He came from Honolulu to
Maui on the Mauna Ijoa Tuesday
evening and remained until the
Claudine Wednesday night, visiting
at the Parsonage. In the few hours
here he saw considerable of the Isl
and. He has travelled widely in
Japan and in Europe but said he
had never seen anything to compare
with Iao Valley in its unique char
acter and wonderful beauty. The
cane was most ' interesting to him
also and he thought the combina
tion of mountain and ocean views
that Maui affords most remarkable.
Mr. Davis has been most success
ful in his work in Japan. He is
the son of a famous missionary, Dr.
Jerome Davis. He received his
education in Oberliue, Hartford
Theological Seminary and in Europe,
being a man of good scholarly at'
tainments. He has built up the Y
M. C. A. work at Nagasaki in a re
markable win , and is now to be
General Secretary of the Y. M. C.
A. at Tokyo. This past eighteen
months he has been visiting the
States, and has succeeded in raising
a handsome sum of money for the
new building for the Y. M. C. A. in
the capital of Japan.

Hie following notice looks very
much like an Intcr-Mand Tennis
Tournament. It is to lie hoped
that nil the players of Maui get busy
and try for the honors:
There is a possibility of three
teams coming from Hnwaii to piny
i like number of Maui teams some
time in the near future. The .match
will be played at Puunene on a Sat
urday and in order that Maui may
be represented by tlie best teams
possible, it is hoped that players,
who are anxious to play in this
match, will come forward and chal
lenge any of tlu? folio ing teams
that have signified their willingness
to enter this elimination tourna
1. Win. Walsh and A. N. Other.
2. S. Richardson and F. P.
II. E. Savage and J. Mac-
4. J. II. Thomson and Dr. F E.
5. D. C. Lindsay' and A. W.
Any team can challenge any of
the two teams directly aUve them
and if the challenging team wins,
the winner takes the loser's place
on the list.
fYny team, not included in the
alove, can enter the tournament
and challenge any of the two teams
last on the list.
The first three teams on the list
will represent Maui in the match
That the Chinese aggregation of
baseball players are keen after the
dollar, is easily seen when the corres
pondence of the club's manager is
read. The Chinese! representative
wanted to get everything in sight,
on the percentage basis nnd then,
when the Maui boys informed them
that they would not play for any
thing in the shape of money, the
Chinese came through with another
offer. They said that they would
pay the expenses of ten men to and
from Maui, pay three days bfjard in
Honolulu, and that was all. In
the event of rain, the Chinese said
that they would only pay $50 cash.
That would leave to Maui boys
out in the cold for over a hundred
dollars. There was nothing doing
on that basis, and Secretary Garcia
has written to the Chinese to that
effect. It is a pity that the Chinese
wanted to "hog" everything. A
game with the Maui team would
draw a big crowd, for sure, and the
Celestials would have to do some tall
scoring in order to win.
The tennis tournament between
the Hawaii and Maui players should
be a fine one. The men telected to
play off to see which team should
represent Maui, are a good lot of
tennis experts- Theie are other
players, of course, and they have the
privilege of challenging the select
ed men in order to prove that they
are not the best possible to obtain.
It is about time that the tennis
players of Wailuku got going on the
proposition of getting some practise.
There should le a live organization
in this town. Tennis is a fine game,
both for exercise, and for the social
side 'A it.
