Probably tho largest crowd that
ever attended a baseball game in La
haina, witnessed tho gamo played last
Sunday at Kaanapall between tho La
haina team and tho Hawalls of Wai
luku. And tho game was a good oiio
score 5 to 4 in favor of the Hawnlis.
Tho Wailuku bunch won all their runs
early in tho game, and then Lahaina
took a brace, and piled up four runs
after tho 7th inning. Tho game took
tbe Lahaina fans by storm and an ef
fort, it is understood, is to bo made
to get a ball grounds In Lnbalna pro
per in order that more of such sport
may bo enjoyed. The presence of tho
part of tho Hawaiian band, which
spent a week of Its vacation at La
haina, added to the pleasure of tho
day. Following the ball game, there
were foot races and other sports. The
ball teams and tho band were hand
somely entertained with a lunch by

Weekly Market Letter
HONOLULU, October 4. Quota
lions received from our San Francisco
oflico indicate that there is good de
mand for Maul red beans at tbe pre
sent time but thcro aro very few if
any to bo sold and tho crop which
will mature next month has already
been contracted for. It means that
this bean will find a ready market
in California at a good price in spito
of the fact that there aro a good ninny
Red Kidney beans raised in that state.
Calico beans aro not known on tno
Paclflo Coast and cannot be sold there.
Some of this variety sent to the Coast
Irom the last crop had to be brought
back for sale.
There is good sale for Hawaiian
corn at ?3G.OO to $40.00, depending on
the size nnd condition. Moat of the
corn grown in tho islands is too largo
to bring a good price as poultry food
nnd a good deal of It Is loo white. Tho
Chlncso who uso most of the corn to
feed to ducks will not buy tho lnrgo
white, even at a much lower figure,
when they can get tho small yellow.
They say that tho white corn is "slrk"
and not as nourishing as the small yel
low. Whether this is true or not, the
producer should grow tho crop that is
wanted by the consumer and for which
he is willing to pay a good price. If
tho corn grown in tho islands were
as small as that received from the
mainland, the Hawaiian producer
would receive a much better price
and have a ready sale.
Peanuts continue to bring a very
low price. Large shipments from the
Orient sometime ago overstocked tho
dealers and it is now difficult to plnco
peanuts at any price. Most Hawaiian
peanuts come to the market with very
dirty hulls, which spoils tbe sale of
Ihem in competition with the cheap
imported peanuts which arc properly
Island Irish potatoes aro selling fair
ly well considering the low prlco of
California potatoes. Maul potatoes aro
better this year than last and aro bet
Due to the fact that transportation
Is limited for bananas to the Coast,
the market Is over supplied and bana
nas are very cheap.
Watermelon.) have been more plenti
ful this year than ever befoie due to
the fact that the melon fly has not
attacked the crop with as much vigor
as in previous year. It is hoped that
this crop can be grown successfully
from now on and that the prlco will
drop to the point where every one can
cat melons and still give the grower
good icturn for bis labor. In Califor
nia a short time ago watermelons sold
for 3-4 cent a pound In car load lots.
Tho Marketing Division is now sell
ing Its dressed beef, pork and mutton
direct to wholesale conaumcrr. instead
of giving It to wholesale meat con
cerns on consignment. This method
has proved very satisfactory. If the
Division could get a regular supply oF"
dressed meat there would be no diffi
culty in placing it. Tho greatest pre
sent difficulty is in knowing when to
depend on consignors for supplies.
Often produce fs promised for which
orders are solicited for delivery on
