Maui Loses Great
Polo Game to Oahu
Greatest Game Ever Played in Islands
Local Team Handicapped Won
Good Game From Army.
Maul's polo team wont down to de
feat before tho strong Oahu four, In
last Saturday's game In Honolulu, by
a score of 11 to 7&. It was undoubt
edly the greatest game of polo ever
played in tho Islands. Also it was
attended by ono of tho biggest crowds
that ever turned out for a polo game
here, and tho enthusiasm and excite
ment wore intense. On Tuesday,
Maul played tho picked army team,
and won by a score of 9& to 3. This
was also a good game, the army men
making a brilliant showing in splto of
inferior mounts. These games con
cludo tho play for Maul this season,
though the Army will play tho flna!
game of tho tournament with Oahu
Although defeated, Maul is In no
wise cast down, for the showing made
Indicates that very little would have
been required to havo turned the vic
tory their way. Besides Oahu has
undoubtedly the strongest organiza
tion she ever had, while Maui was
scarcely up to her usual form. The
recent illness of Dave Fleming, one
of tho chief standbys of. the Mauls,
made playing for him a severe strain.
and although he showed great gaine
ness, it is certain that it told in his
play. He was obliged to dismount for
a brief rest during ono of tho inter
missions. Ho did not play in the army
game, Hums taking his place. 3am
Baldwin, who wore Maul colors in
place of Harold Itlco, did somo classv
wotk, and Frank Baldwin and Collins
wero in their usual form.
Maul's string of ponies did some
grand work, though Oahu proved lil-
uo if any interior in this respect. It
Is claimed by experts that the Terri
tory now has probably tho finest lot
of polo ponies in the world.
Most of the members of the Maul
polo team returned homo on Thurs.
day by the Lurllne, bringing their Jlne
string of ponies with them. It Is prob
able that there will be some interest
ing practise games played during the
ran, but it is not likely that any Jm
portant matches will be played until

Some of these havo joined tho new

Last Sunday's game between iho
Puunenes and Hawalis, which resulted
in favor of the latter by a score of 17
to 15, was a swatfest from start to
finish. For those fans who love to
see heavy sticking and much gallop
ing around the bags, it was a rare
treat, for no less than thirty hits and
thirty-two runs all told wero made.
Homo runs, three and two-baggers,
nnd singles, kept the scorer busy from
the first to the last man up. Tho
game lasted two houVs and thirty min
utes, the longest on record this sea
ton. In the opening Inning, Paschoal's
champions came to hat and after wal
loping Kenneth Cockett's deliveries
for five safeties and obtaining two
free passes to first, scored seven runs.
This score made Cummings leary of
Kenneth's pitching qualities, and ho
put in "Blackie" Kaehu, who though
facing the seniors for the first time,
is credited with winning tho game.
"macule" pitched a fino game, al
though the 'support ho received from
his team mates, was anything but en
couraging. The Hawalis scored ono In their half
of the first, and kept tho Puunenes
from scoring in the second and third'
Innings. In the second, the Colts
found Ernest Baldwin, the slabster for
Puunenes, an easy mark, and after tho
smoke "had cleared away had made
five hits, including a home run by
Vlela, which with three errors, gave
them nine runs.
In the third spasm, Vlela again hit
for a homer and four runs wero scor
ed. Harold Baldwin then stepped into
the pitcher's box in placo of brother
.Ernest, and from then on only three
runs were scored by the Hawalis,-two
in tho "fourth and one in tho eighth
Tho Puunenes managed to score
eight mote runs, three in tho 6th, one
in the 7th, and four in tho 8th. These
gave them a total of 15 to tho Hawalis'
10, and still one inning to go.
There was no telling who would win
after that, as anything was liable to
happen, but In tho ninth, the cane
grinders wero retired in one, two,
three order and the score stood 17 to
15, with tho Hawalis on the long end.
Alvln Ttoblnson and Hclmlo Meyer
did tho umpiring to the satisfaction of
players and fans.
Tho absence of "Blondlo" Williams,
who has returned to Honolulu, was
sorely felt by tho Puunenes, and Pas
choal will havo to hustlo somo for a
now twlrler, if ho wants to bo in tho
running for tho series. They will also
lose Harold Baldwin, who leaves for
the States soon, which will causo an
other big hole in their lineup. Harold
Is both a reliable infieldcr and a good
Cummings has also suffered by his
players leaving for other parts, but is
confident ho can replace them. Ho has
been drawing on the juniors and has
developed some good players.
Tomorrow afternoon the Hawalis
and Palas cross bats. Foster Robin
son and Alvln Ttoblnson will probably
form tho battery for Pala, and as they
aro out to win this series, It will bo a
game worth watching. Cummings
feels that tho Colts will play better
ball and got away with tho big end of
