Splendid Races at Kaliului Last Satur
day Pleased Good Crowd Some
Close Events Outlook Bright for
Although the attendance was not so
largo as in some other years, the
twenty-ninth annual race meeting or
tho Maul Racing Association was In
all ways one of the best and most .sat
isfactory of any ever held on Maul.
There was clars shown in practically
every one of tho cloven events, and
the horses were so well matched that
no race was sure until tho lino was
crossed. Moreover, the showing made
by many of tho entries was such as to
Insure an equally fine card for next
year. Some of the young horses of
the island have shown some great
qualities, which indicates some line
Ehowlngs In the future.
There was general disappointment
that the schedule of the Claudlno was
changed one day ahead, as this pre
vented many Honolulu persons who
had intended coming, being unable to
do so; and it was also responsible for
the Fourth Cavalry Band's not being
present. However, Maui people turn
ed out well, and with a perfect day,
there was little to be desired in con
ditions under which tho races were
The chief event was of course the
trotting and pacing free-for-all, for
tho $500 purse, In which Angus Mc
Phee's horse Doncrvo redeemed him
self by winning in good shape three
straight heats from Tom Hollinger's
Welcome Boy, of Honolulu. This was
a very pretty race, in which Denervo
displayed all the qualities his backers
have 'claimed for him, and which he
won without difficulty. The fears as
to -his staying qualities proved un
grounded for the clos-est heat was tho
first one, in which he passed under the
wire some half dozen lengths ahead
In the time 2:13 3-5. The time of the
other two heats was 2:15 1-5 and 2:1C
Tho two-year-old Vi mile dash was
won in a very close race by Harry
Baldwin's Senator B. from Dr. Fitz
gerald's Copra, time 52 2-5. Hollinger's
colt Seabolt, on which a good deal had
been counted, failed to make good, but
was plainly out of condition, not hav
ing recovered from the effects of the
trip from Honolulu, a few days before.
Louis von Tempsky's Adonis won a
very pretty race from Young Lady (F.
H. Locey), in tho pony free-for-all, in
time, 52 1-5. This race was a gamble
almost up to tho last rod, and was one
of the exciting events of tho day.
The other races of the day icsulted
as follows: s

DEATH OF FORMER RESIDENT.
After an illness of many months,
Mrs. Emma Cederloff, a ono time rest
dent of Wailuku, died on Wednesday
of this week at tho Beretan'a street
sanitarium, Honolulu. She leavis a
son, about 18 years ot age. Mrs. Ced

First in Playoff
Big Crowd Witnessed Good Game
Coits Must Win Tomorrow or Puu
nene wil Takes Series.
Tho first leg in tho three-cornered
scries now being played by tho senior
lcage to break tho tie went to tho Fuu
neno team, who defeated tho Pala ag
gregation last Saturday, at Wailuku
park by a score of 7 to i.
Tho attendance was by far the big
gest this season,, no less than sixty
automobiles and over 400 people In the
bleachers and grand stand, witnessed
tho duel, which was played with vim.
Tho gamo started shortly after four
o'clock, giving the crowd time to re
turn from tho races at Kahulul.
Paschoal's bunch started the scoring
with two tallies in tho third Inning,
and added three more in the fifth and
one each In tho sixth and eighth, while
the Robinson outfit scored two runs
each In the fourth and eighth. '
"Blondie" Williams for tho Cane
Grinders, pitched a steady game, and
showed that ho can control himself
in a pinch. Manuka, the new slabster
of tho Paias, showed unsteadiness in
his first game, and after the sixth
inning was replaced by Foster Robin
ton, who had been holding down sec
ond bag In professional style.
Rumor has it that Puunene wll. soon
lose "Blondie" Williams, who will re
turn to Honolulu. This loss, with that
of Harold Baldwin, who will shortly
leave for college on the mainland, will
make a big hole In tho strong lineup
of Paschoal's bunch, and ho will have
to do some tall hunting to find men
to replaco them.
Cummlng's Colts will meet the Puu
nene bunch tomorrow afternoon at 3
o'clock at Wailuku. Should-tho Puu
nones win the short series will come
to an end and they will bo declared
winners of tho first series. If the re
verse happens the Hawalis will have
to meet tho Palas.
Picked Team Defeats Pala.
There being no official league game
arranged for last Sunday, a picked
team played tho-Palas, defeating them
in an eleven inning game by a score
of 7 to 6.
Dissentlon and bad plays on the part
of the Robinson outfit was responsible
for their defeat. Heimo Meyer and
Bill Bal, for the picked team, proved
their worth as ball players. The form
er pitched a fast game with only a
day's practise, while tho latter held
down first sack on fine style and both
were very handy with the stick.
Tho lineup of tho teams follows:
