Not Satisfied and Have Protested
11-lnning Game. Chance Venice
Team Will Visit Maui in November
Local Ball Looking Up.
On account of the lack of interest
which some of the teams comprising
the Maui League were displaying, a
meeting of the Maui Athletic Asso
ciation was called for last Friday
evening. At the meeting it was the
consensus of opinion that the Asso
ciation insist upon teams appearing
in full uniform, under risk of losing
their membership in the league. As
a consequence both the Waiiuku
and Chinese Team appeared in full
uniform last Sunday, and put up
one of the best games played this
season. It took eleven innings for
the Wailukus to win decision by a
score of 8 to 7. The game was in
teresting from start to finish. The
Chinese arc not' satisfied even yet
that they lost the game, and have
filed si "protest against some of the
decisions rendered by Umpire An
The Chinese appeared to be con
siderably strengthened by the addi
tion of some good players, whereas
the Wailukus appeared rather weak
without three or four of the old
guard. The fans can now be assur
oil of good games up to the end of
the sea Ron. Tin; Wailukus are play
ing the Puunene team on Sunday
at 3 : J0 p. m. and interest is being
shown by the fact that the boys are
gettii.g out to practise. The Wai
iuku team will have their full line
up on Sunday; which is necessary
if they intend to defeat the aggrega

The Venice team which will visit
Honolulu in November contemplate

This, at least, is the plan of Mr.

A warrant has been issued for the
arrest of Jiill Coekett of the Waiiuku
team, for stealing in the ninth in
ning, when he thought the run was
:. lost in need of by his fellow players.
All hats olT to Joe Oliveira for
making the hit of the day which
brought in the winning run. Funny
that Joe always manages to get a
hit in when it is most needed.
Kama played great ball at second
base for the Chinese, but the gap in
Center field was plainly noticeable,
lie is too good a fielder to attempt
to bring him in from the garden.
Well, did you ever? Didn't it just
begin to look like old times again to
see (Jeorge Cuminings at first base?
Cieorge says that he feels that with
a little practice he will be right in
it again, and of course, everybody
wants to see him play ball.
Paschoal is back from Honolulu
after having studied baseball in the
city from every angle. He says that
he now bus a few kinks which will
be hard for any team to unwrap.
In Honor of a Visitor
Miss Kvelyn Webster, of Hono
lulu, who is the charming guest of
Mrs. K. Herrick l'.rown, at Kuiaha,
was the motif of a delightful little
dinner party at the Drown home
last Saturday night. A pleasant
little dance followed the dinner.
The guests, besides Miss Webster,
were Mrs. Ralph Brown, of Hono
lulu, Miss Winifred Weddiek, Miss
Kdith Baldwin, Miss Irene Wells,
Miss Marian Brown, of Honolulu,
Miss A inning, Messrs. Douglas
WellsHerbert Wells, Ix'sterSauers
and y ray ton Sauers.
A Fund For
C. D. Lufkin Offers Plan For Lessen
ing Discomforts of Mountain Trip.
Believes Will Be Self-Supporting.
Volunteering to be one of ten to
subscribe $f per month towards
maiiiing a care-tiker at the rest
house on Haleakala, C. D. Lufkin,
at the Klks' smoker in honor of
Judge Kingsbury, on Tuesday night,
outlined a plan which would un
doubtedly do much towards increas
ing the popularity of Maui's moun
tain as a resort.
Mr. Lufkin would have a man
and his wife stationed on the moun
tain, whose duty should be to keep
the rest house clean, provide wood
for fuel, and be prepared to at least
assist travelers in preparing palat
able food. In his spare time, Mr.
Lufkin would have such an employe
spend his lime in increasing thesize
of the rest house, improving the
trails and in other ways work for the
greater comfort of visitors.
It was the expressed opinion of
the speaker, that within a compara
tively short space of time, that, by
permitting a nominal fee to he
charged for use of the accommoda
tions provided, that the income from
this source would make the institu
tion self supporting. Mr. Lufkin
believes that 0 per month will be
sufficient to carry out the scheme
Search For Murderer
Brings No Results.
All clues as to the identity of the
murderer of the Chinese vegetable
pedler, Lee Tin Duck, who was
beaten to death and robbed several
weeks ago near the old Maalaea
landing, seem to have vanished in
to thin air. Sheriff Crowell and the
police force have been working
steadily on the matter up until this
week, but now practically admit
that they have reached the end of
their rope, as far as evidence is
The Filipino laborer, who was
arrested as a suspect two weeks
ago, was released this week, it be
ing impossible to connuect him up
definitely with the crime. The
man had over $120 in cash on his
person when arrested, and some
suspicious movements on his part
led to his arrest. It is now believ
ed by the police that the murder
was unwitnessed, and that it will
probably never be brought home to
the guilty party.
Two Divorces Granted.
Two long pending divorce suits
were decided on Monday last by
Judge Kingsbury. In the case of
Vamagata vs. Yamagata, instituted
by the wife against her husband
last November, the divorce was
granted, on the grounds of non
support. The husband was ordered
to pay $50 cash, and $15 per month
hereafter, as alimony. Knos Vin
cent represented the libellant in
the case, and Kugene Murphy was
attorney for the husband.
In the case of John Makahio,
whose suit against his wife for di
vorce on grounds of intemperance,
was tried on May 13th, the court
denied the libel of the husband,
but grauted a cross libel filed by
the wife, granting separation on
grounds of cruelty, and requiring
Makahio to pay $150 and $25 per
month permanent alimony. Attor-
omcy Vincent, for Makahio has
taken an appeal to the supreme

I have been Mrs. Merrlain's lawyer !
for some time, but have never had '

until today. Jack Merrlam und I hnd

In addition to this and five or six
other cusos np for trial, I have had
a good deal of business to transact
for Mrs. Merrlam.
Itlght here I must say that my con
science la not unclouded. To be sure,
I hnve stirred up no lawsuits, nor
am I guilty of the crimes of main
tennnce una ctmmperty. But I urn
forced to confess that I have rendered
her business more complicated thun It
might have been.
To put it plainly. I hnve mnde pro
fes.sIonnl conferences necessnry where,
by n little management they might
have been avoided. I have advised ber
to nsk advice. I entwined her business
with red tape.
Yet I have not mismanaged her af

she knows it.
At the end of the first month I sent
In my bill. "To professional services
rendered, 100 cents."
And, do yon know, she refusod to pny
it hhe sent It buck with a note clnlm-
inc that the charge was exorbitant
nnd that she thought 30 cents was a
fair compensation for my services.
Yes, she has n sense of humor, all
Well, I tore up the bill nnd wrote

rendered her no more bills.

A few minutes later I had sent the
stenographer to bis machine, and she
was following me iuto my private of

"You have asked my advice," 1 said,
measuring my words, "and I shall give
you my best Judgment The question
Is a difficult one. You say this man is
a widower of long standing. That is.
of course, a disadvantage. But with

excitement getting the better of me.
"here is my advice: Lto not mnrry the
widower. Marry me instead."
She stared at me in amazement
Then the color rushed to her cheeks,
mid her eyes foil.
I saw my opportunity. 1 changed
my role from couuselor to advocate.
"Kose!" I cried.
I said a great deal more, but it would
be out of place here, because It was
entirely unprofessional. But when, aft

her to tell him, us geutly as possible,
