Baseball Not All.
Other lines of sport were discussed

Maul Athletic Association should
broaden its scope, in line with the
objects of the Association when ori
ginally formed some fifteen years ago.
Bowling, ' tennis, swimming .soccer,
and other sports wero talked of. With
tho personnel of the membership the
Association now has, a very bright
future seems assured and that the or

The Secretary was authorized to
communicate with the proper officials

Church Meeting at Community
House a Most Delightful Affair.
MAKAWAO, Jan. 21,-,Mis. How-
land's coucert at tho Community
House was postponed from Saturday
night, the lGth, to Monday night, the
18th, owing to a railroad accident to
a M. A. Co.'s canu train on the mach

crane of tho Kahulu' Railroad Co. vs
utilized to clear away the wreckage,
which task was accomplished about
10 o'clock p. m. In the meantime it
was feared to turn on the electric
fluid for the Community House lights
owing to a danger of a short circuit,
in case the crane should by chance
touch tho electric wires which run.
close by the scene of tho accident.
In case of a short circuit, the result
would have been serious to the men
running tho crane. .
Last Monday evening, Mrs. How-
land, Mss Powers and Mrs. Howard,
gave to a most appreciative audience
at Community Houso one of tho best
entertainments in years.
Mrs. Howland's solos from "Ma

After the concert, tho ladles de

Pleasing Church Meeting.
The Now England supper given in
tho Community House, Paia, on Fri

present. The supper was served at
0:20 o'clock, the guests being seated
at twelve small tables placed hero
and thero throughout the large hall.
Fair high school girls were most at
tentive waitresses and tho appetizing
menu consisted of cold ham and ton

nuts, coffee and chocolate. After tho
repast, successive meetings of church,
society and trustees were held, nt

Charge Against T. B. Lyons
Makes Stir in Land Board
Rather sensational charges are
made by II. D. Penhallow, manager
of tho Walluku Sugar Company, in a
letter read at tho land commission's
meeting Tuesday morning, In which
'Penhallow opposes the proposition
advanced by T. D. Lyons, deputy tax
assessor of Walluku, for an exchango
of land with tho territory, says the
Star-Bulletin. Lyons owns a plat
near the Royal School in Honolulu,
which for several years has been used
by that Institution. Ho offers to trade
It for a tract of similar value on Maul.
Penhallow openly charges, In his
communication to the board, that Ly
ons is preparing to work a "holdup"
game on tho Wniluku Sugar Company,
because the tract ho Is seeking to get
separates lands owned by tho sugar
company and is so situated that tho
owner could mako serious trouble for
tho company if ho chose. Tho land
Lyons wants is undor a lease to tho
sugar company which does not expire
for four years. Chairman Raymond
was authorized to thoroughly invest!
gato this affair, tho board meantime
deferring action until Its next meeting.

The Puzzling Comedy of a Molokai
Japanese Who Bought a Pond
But Can't Use the Fish For
Tho Dowery! Oh, tho Bowciy!
I'll never go there any more.
I went to-an auction td buy somo box,
Tho auctioneer asked what I'd give
for the box;
One man yelled "two dollars", I said
Wejl, ho emptied th.o box and ho gave
It to mo:
I sold you the box, not the sox," said
Oh, I'll never go there any more!
Something like this happened to Ka-
nayama, of Molokai, when he bid in
a fish pond lease for $700, at a sher
iff's sale some few weeks ago. When
he proceeded to realize on his invest
ment by selling somo of tho mullet?
from tho pond, his agents were sued
for damages on the ground that while
Kanayama bought tho "pond" nil
right, nothing was said about tho con
tents. Hence the "fish" in it did not
belong to him.
But this isn't the worst of It. Ka
nayama was assured by his attorney
that, although it is tho closed season
for ama-ama, just now, tho law does
not prohibit tho taking of mullet from
ponds that are not connected with the
ocean; and as tho pond In question
Is of this class ho was at llbercy to
do all the mullet fishing he wanted to.'
But when ho did take a fow hundred
weight of the toothsome ania-ama and
attempted to market them, On county
attorney called a halt and thrcatenr-a
to have him arrested, inasmuch as tfe
law positively prohibits tho sale, or
offering for sale, this variety of fish
during December, January, and Feb
ruary; nor says anything regarlmf,
Nor Is this quite all yet, for Kana
yama bought the pond to protect him
self, this seemingly being the only
way he could realize on a judgment
which ho had secured from the did
trict court against om- Akutogawp,
who had held die fish pond lease, and
who owed him about $700.
Within half an hour after the sher
iff's sale of the fish pond, It tians-
plres that Akutogawa executed a hill
of sale to his attorney Eugene Mur
phy for tho fish In the pond, and it
was Muiphy who filed the damage
suit against Kanayama for helping
himself to these same fish. Tho case
was tried on Monday before District
Magistrate Conradt, on an agreed
statement of facts, and judgment
awarded to the defendant. Murphy,
however, will carry the caso Into the
circuit court on appeal.
Yet another joker In this conedy
is the fact that D. H. Caso, Kanaya
ma's attorney, advised him as to his
right to catch fish from his own pond,
while D. H. Case, County Attorney,
warned him with tho rigors of tho law
when he attempted to placo his fis-h
on the market.
