ourth Of July Races
If the plans of Arthur Rice are
carried out, and they very likely
will be, the old Kapaa race track
will be the scene of some first-class
horse racing on the Fourth of July.
Owners of thoroughbreds are in
teresting themselves in the matter,
and at present the outlook is most
favorable. The track has been
neglected for so long that consider
able work will be necessary to put
t in shape for the races, but Co an
enthusiastic horseman, such little
obstacles as the removal of a thou
sand tons of vegetable matter and
soil is of no consequence.
Ihere are some extremely well
bred horses on Kauai and a revival
of the old sporting days at the Ka
paa race track will undoubtedly
be the means of attracting an im
mense crowd of lovers of the sport.
The Like Track Meet
The annual Fourth of July Track
and Field Meet will, according to
present indication, be a big im
provement on the last celebration.
It is doubtful as to whether or not
the same will be held under the
auspices of the A. A. TJ., since
those who participated in the game
last year, ari now members of va
rious school clubs, and as such,
can not compete with contestants
other than A. A. U. members.
It is practically settled that the en
tries will be open to all comers, the
idea being to encourage "home"
athletics. A new feature may be
added to the affair this year, which
is sure to prove both interesting
and instructive. It will be known
as the "Industrial Exhibition,"
being a department wherein prize
vegetables will be displayed, with
a domestic science department in
which will appear fancy sewing,
fancy baking, etc., which will per
haps be confined solely to our boys
and girls. The plan is not yet
fully developed, but it is safe to
say that arrangements have reach
ed the point where its materializa
tion is almost assured.
The Baseball Outlook
From the interest which is being
taken in the coining baseball sea
son, there is every reason to expect
classy ball from every team in the
League. From Waimea to Kilauea,
the teams are doing the practice
stunt with a vengeance. Several
teams which failed to realize the va
lue of practice in the past season's
games, aie now beginning to take
a different view in the matter.
Each of the seven teams has for
its manager, men of influence and
progressiveness, both being essen
tials to successful team work. The
Officials of the Kauai Athletic As
sociation have decided to use the
Reach balls exclusively, which has
met with the approval to he various
league teams composing the line
ups for the coming series.
The decision of- the directors to
do away with all Kate fees has
been met with a hearty approval
of the fans. The methods of col
lecting by volunteer contribution,
which was carried out last season,
failed to produce satisfactory re
sults as it was almost impossible
to collect, once the crowd had gain
ed entrance to the grounds, Con
sidering that the past year was the
first time baseball has ever receiv
ed serious attention, however, it
must be admitted that, all in all,
the season was a most successful
Baseball as an a d v e r t i s.i n g
medium is making astonishing pro
gress. Nothing will so keep a
town "on the map" and make the
public at large familiar with its
names as the fact that it has a
winning team. All the world reads
the baseball news. The name of
the place that flies, or nearly flies,
a pennant is bruited abrond and
thousands become familiar with
the name, its approximate location
and the fact that it is enterprising.
It requires hustle, persistency
.and liberal amounts of money to
finish at the top in anv league, and
the principal difference between
the large and small leagues is in
expense. The characteristics ab
solutely necessary in a pennant
winner are largely reflected back
upon the town whose name the
club bears, and newspaper readers
or prospective settlers credit its
citizens with public spirit and
financial poss'bilities. Baseball
has been an important factor in the
growth of many American cities
Street railway companies have ap
preciated the importance of the
traffic to and from 1 a?eball grounds,
and are frequently large purcln sers
of club stock in order to get their
enterprise started. It has some.'
times happened that the only
available site was beyond the
terminals already established, but
the company has laid new tracks
or extended old ones, knowing the
baseball crowds would maue the
investment profitable. As a result
of increased transportation facilities
settlements multiply and land
Bowling Is Popular
Judging from the reports in the
Honolulu press, the suggestion of
a twenty round go at the pins,
which originated with Messrs. Ma-
ser and Wolters, has become the
rage. The indication; are that the
two Honolulu champions will have
a hard time defending their title.
There are some mighty good play-
ers ill Honolulu, among whom are
such men us Paul Schmidt, who
are in for a contest with the ex
perts, and it is also an assured fact
that another reckoning will be had
with Maser and Wolters.
Makaweh and Kekaha are at
present in the market for bowling joplh,, Mo., acconl:ng to an Asso
