Mr. J. R. Myers of Kilauea de

Black Bass. At the cost of much
care and patience as well as money
he imported them from California
a few months ago and placed them
in one of the Plantation reservoirs.
Now the reservoir and the streams
connected therewith are full o f
small fish. They are excellent
eating and even better sport; alto

with the constant complaints we
hear about it.
K. W. KINNEY. I must de

though I thank the members most
sincerely for their consideration. I
believe they will find better repre

any rate, you can say, I am out of
the race for representative.

JAS. EDWARDS I am leaving

make it possible for me to return

Mrs. H. D. Wishard was hostess

of Cincinnati, who is visiting Mrs.
Wishard. Eight tables were
arranged a m o n g artistic an d

cross over the center of the room.
The dining room decorations were
bouganvilla, the ceiling being de
corated by hundreds of playing
cards attatched to a thread and
dangling over the heads of the
guests. They were real cards and
were in such harmony with the!

admiration. The ladies first prize,

Bonfire Chowder In Niumalu
The bonfire chowder given
Tuesday evening, July 30, by Mr.
and Mrs. J. II. Moragne for the
Neighborhood Club was one of the
most original and enjoyable events
of the season. About 6:30 the
guests to the number of 40 gather
ed around the long table under an
extemporized lanai on the Niumalu,
beach, every one prepared to do
justice to what was coining. The
mainstay of the supper was an ex
cellent chowder of the well known
Coney brand, but this was supple
mented by many other toothsome
delicacies. As the darkness closed
in a monster bonfire illumined the
scene with its pyrotechnic glory,

Later in the evening three large
boats conveyed the happy party

beyond recognition. The evening
closed with three royal cheers for

What's Doing In Koloa?
What's the matter with TColoa?
The people are all so busy and
mysterious over there. A certain
young lady seemed restless and
wore a far-a-way look in her eyes,
so I said: "Daisy, what's up?"
"Aw uothin'." she answered
waltzing away among sweet "Tra-la-la,
tra-la-la, lala lalas." I turn
ed to the old man. "Say, Jack, is she
not a little off?" "No," says he,
"she is rehearsing her song for the
concert." "Concert?" says I.
"What?" says he, "don't you
know that the Koloa Library is to
have an entertainment? It is to be
the greatest ever. Excuse me, old
man, but I really must be off to

The McBrydes tried hard to beat
the Kilauea Red Sox last Sunday
in Eleele but failed in the attempt
even with the aid of two umpires.
The final score stood 8-4 in favor
of the visitors. The game was
peacefully enough until the fifth
inning, when war was declared.
Up to that inning the score was
1-0 in favor of the home team
when the Red Sox got two men
on bases. A single was knocked
out, the man on second scored on
a passed ball due Jo the catcher
and the other rnnm r irif.fi tr. tnii..
also. The decision which sent him
back to th;rd was perfectly correct
iccording to the rules, but a dis
pute which lasted about t e n
minutes had to be held. In the
sixth and seventh skirmish, the
visitors scored two runs in each.
The last half of the seventh was
eventful. The McBryde Blues fill
ed all the corners with one down,
when a n infield grounder ' was
stopped by the short stop who
tagced the runner at second who
was making third and rallied the
ball to second, retiring the runner
from first. The latter sent the ball
home and would have completed
a triule nlav had nmip h-tn r,,,
at first. The umpire saw none of
these plays and dtclared every
man safe. The game was held up
over twenty minutes. When they
continued again they allowtd one
man out. The home team got two
home in this spasm. The first half
of the eighth saw Joe Pacheco
show his disgust for the McBrydes
bjj knocking the ball into the cane
field for a homer. This brought
cheers from almost everybody. It
was followed by a triple. The Mc
Bryde's.gotone man home in their
half.'Ih ;tlie "ninth- the McBryde
pitcher deliberately balked,, three
times only one of them being
allowed. Sanborn saw it was use
less to kick after the second balk.
The visitors brought one more
home in this inning. The last half
was a goose egg for McBryde.
The game on the Lihue diamond
Sunday between the home team
and Koloa, was one f the tamest
of the season. The home team
simply toyed with the visitors
from start to finish. In the 7th.
the Koloas scored, and as a result,
a little ginger was injectedinto the
game, but save this incident, there
seemed little o r no excitement
throughout the game. The one
run is all that saved the Koloas
from a whitewash, as the game
closed with a score of 9-1 in favor
of the home team. Koloa's battery
was extremely weak, which threw
the main support of the team on
the fielders, who did fairly good
work. From a scientific point of
view the game was not what might
have been reasonably expected,
but there was one noticeable
feature which was the source of
some comment, and that was the
perfect harmony which prevailed
among the two teams. Not a dis
puted decision occurred. When
we consider that these two teams,
when they met last, were ready to
fly at each other with bats, their
conduct Sunday was the more
The Kawaihau and Waimea
teams met on the Waimea field
and put up one of the prettiest ex
hibition of baseball ever played on
the home ground. It was nip-and-tuck,
first one, then the other lead
ing off. and it was simply any
body's game to the very last when
the visitors did some extra stick
work and won out by 2 scores.
The Waimea diamond is a great
deception to those who are un
familiar with it, in so much as the
sand prevents the ball from rolling
when it falls, which fact makes it
almost impossible to bring in i
home run. The sand is also as
destructive to base runners, as it is
lather uphill business to negotiate
a base at record speed, drilling
through sand ankle deep. The
game Sunday was attended by a
crowd of fans which would indi
cate no falling off in public interest
