The former wore the "Greens"
and the latter, the "Reds."'
The ' 'Greens'' seemed too power
ful for the "Reds" who, though
they displayed ability in hitting
the ball, lacked team-play and so
did not make the members of the
tournament quartet extend them
selves. (Juite a number of spectators
.were present from different parts of
central Maui. From among those
present a third four of old players

(Continued from 1'age I.)
There is some sorrow felt by the
employees of the custom service be
cause their monthly pay check ha
not arrived and because, also, it
seems doubtful that one will arrive
next month. The rule that a man
cannot get an inspiration for his
work if his cheek is delayed seems
not to apply there for the young
men keep at it whether or no. And
a very busy force it is. Stackablc
lias been rapped over the knuckles
many times for one thing or anoth
er but the boys do nut agree with
the newspapers in the rapping.
They say he is all right, a good
disciplinarian and asks only that
men do their work well and show
their loyalty to him in all ways.
Any employer would do this and
not half of the staff, were it as
large as the one in the custom
house, would be as faithful. From
all accounts the newspapers dislike
for Stackable is duo to his refusal
to give out information which, if
published, Would bar justice. He
lias heei heard to say that he used
to givethe newspapers everything
but, after a reporter or two had
violated the confidence he reposed
lii them and published information
when ho had requested them not to
lo so, he shut off the source. No
one can blame him for it. There
are some business men opposed to
him because he has insisted upon a
strict observance of the rules of the
treasur department; he is not
pliable and will not give in a parti
cle. He ia charged with a lack of
judgment and a failure to use the
discretion which the department
allows, and which he is expected to
use. But no matter, he is in office
and it will be surprising if lie does
not remain. The mere fact that he
is a republican cannot be a bar to
his ri ti ntion, at least until his com
mission expires in 1910. Republi
cans have a chance in this adminis
tration, and there is a belief hen:
that Wilson will appoint republi
cans to office as a punishment to
the disgruntled democracy of Ha
waii. Some one said the other day
that Farrington could not get to be
secretary of the territory as he is u
republican. The rank and file
much against its will, says it is nut
an objection and, while Metzger
might lie preferable, Farrington
will probably get the jolt he has
been teasing to come his way. If
you will notice, the Star-Bulletin is
in receipt of Kent cablegrams every
day, and most of them are publish
ed ; some of them are said to be
held in reserve.
MONEY TIGHT -
There was a rumor yesterday that
a lirni largely interested in sugar is
feeling the depression and the re
fusal of the banks to loan money on
bonds. Nothing serious is expect
ed, but the inconvenience is dis
tressing. The banks arc certainly
holding on to the cash and will
continue to do so until their cash
balance w ill be so large that loans
will have to be negotiated. Nor
can the banks of Honolulu afford to
hold the strings too tight. Com
mercial loans, it is said, are easy
enough to negotiate if the firm
wanting the money has a standing.
Sometimes individuals like the
"Baron," for instance, come along
and make a touch that puts the
squeeze on the legitimate borrower.
Since he came from Camp '2 he has
heal defendant in a number of cases,
one of the most recent being brought
by the architec, mentioned last
week as having drawn the plans for
the riding academy.
Cable advices came yesterday to
the agents of the llilonian telling
of the steamer putting back when
one day out of Seattle, with three
men injured. No particulars re
garding the injuries or the cause,
so there has been much speculating
over the affair. Today advices were
received saying the steamer had
departed for the islands and will be,
probably, two days late. As she
goes to Kahului you wiii be inter
ested in this bit of news.
TWO DBA I IIS.
The accident at the new Inter
Island lloating dock yesterday after
noon was a bad one and shows the
hand of fate as far as one of the
men, Joe McKay, was concerned.
He was badly injured when one of
the boilers blew up a few months
ago and bad a hunch which he often
expressed, that he would get a jolt
on that job that would take him
out. It came when a steel slab
dropped on him and Olson, one of
his co-workers. It is not likely
that the blame for the accident can
be fixed on the company, though
the Utilities Commission will make
a thorough investigation of the
BliECKPNS KEf i.
May the Lord , help any county
official on IL.waii if lie has been
delving the slightest degree into
the ,'iioncy affairs of the county and
not making return. Never in the
history of the islands has there been
a man like Breckons for finding
out things, and separating the
crooked from the straight and, if he
fails in one try, he will make an
other and, nine times out of the
proverbial ten, he lands his man.
His methods have been criticized
and termed persecution, in some in
stances but it is hardly ' that, lie
does not want to be beaten by a
crook and he knows how to prove
a man guilty when is not innocent.
There are tricks in all trades, even
in the law, and Mr. Breckons is pasl
master at finding them out. There
is a rumor that he is to be one of
a permanent investigating commit
tee of the bar association, whose
duties will be to investigate charges
against members of the bar, when
proceedings for disbarment are
instituted If this true is something
Sheep on the Ncbo national
forest, Utah, go four and a half
months without water except for
such moisture as they get from the
dew and the juices of forage plants.
(! razing sheep on a range entirely
destitute of water is a recent inno
vation due to the increasing demand
for forage and the efforts of the
forest officers to find a place on the
forest ranges for all the stock that
can safely be admitted. The area
on the Nebo which has now proved
usable by sheep is high and rocky,
a portion of it being above timber
line, and it has neither springs nor
streams of sufficient size or accessi
bility to be used for stuck watering
purposes. The grazing season last a
from June 15 to October 31, and
during this period of four and a
half months the animals do not get
Under such conditions, however,
the sheep have done extremely well,
and last year's lambs from this
range had an average weight at the
close of the season of GS pounds on
the iincago market, wliicli was
rather above the normal weight
from that vicinity.
In one area on the Targhee forest
in Idaho sheep get water only twice
during the lour-inonths summer
glazing season. There is I water
on the range, but the sheep are
driven to a nearby stream lower
down the mountain side. Lambs
from this range weighed Go pounds
on the Chicago market.
