rtAMS MR TH NGS UP
IN FIRST PRACTICE GAME
The Lihue and Kawaihau ball
teams met on the Lihue diamond
last Sunday in the first practice
game of the season. The game was
marked with some fair playing,
neither team giving evidence of a
striking advantage, unless it might
be said that the home team show
ed weakness in the box, having
used three against a single pitcher
by the visitors. Dean for the home
team was not in form, owing, it is
said, to over practice in batting
within the last few days. While
the Kawaihau pitcher did not walk
so manv, the home team found
but little difficulty in swatting his
ball. However, the game was
merely a practice event, and it is
hardly possible to tell at this time,
what is likely to develop by the
time the series opens, The scores
of 13-to-H would indicate even,
though not necessarily, extra good
playing. The Lihue team may play
off a return practice game with
the K. A. C.'s next Sunday. The
game by innings was as follows:
K. A. C's.
, Cummings came to the bat and
after swatting at four balls got a
free pass t o 1st, stole 2nd. but
died in attempt to annex 3rd, Wil
cox also walked to 1st. by pitcher
Dean and on a fly to rf. by Sada,
connected with 2nd, scoring on a
fly to c. by Almeida, who scored
on a single by Texeira. Ambrosio
succumbed to a neat little trick
turned by Ellison 1st.
Ahana made safe hit, annexing
2nd. on pass ball. Fernandes fann
ed, Ellis reaching 1st. on pop.ftflv
to rf . Yamamoto drove a hot one
directly into the catcher's mit ex
piring instantly. Freilas struck to
center, made 1st. and reached 2nd,
on wild throw to 1st. Ahana and
Ellis came over the home plate. H.
Malina singled, stole 2nd. Waiau
flew to rf.
K. A. C's.
Rodrigues pungled safe hit, stole
2nd. M. Soares then sent a two
bagger over the green, s:oring
Rodrigues. J. Soares singled, but
M. Soares gave up the ghost at
3rd. Cummings put out a two
bagger, which brought in J'. Soares.
Wilcox singled, Sada fanned, Al
meida drove safe hit to center,
allowing Wilcox to romp home.
Almeida stole 2nd. Texeira appro
priated a twb bagger, which gave
Almeida an apportunity to kiss the
home goal. Ambrosio singled,
Texeira joined the funeral proces
sion in an attempt to connect with
the home plate.
The visiting team at this point
in the game were handling affairs
about as they liked. They had lo
cated the easy going balls which
Dean was nuttinu un. and were
swatting them with sickening re
gularity. However, a change in Li
hue's pitchers, when Waiau took
the box end Dean became a shelf
decoration, Lihue took a new lease
MASK DANCE AT KAPAA, BIG SUCCESS
An enjoyable affair w a s the
masked ball which was given in
the Kealia school cottage last Sat
urday evening, the occasion being
in honor of the birthday annivei
saries o f two o f Kapaa's most
popular lady teachers, Miss Amy
Wong and Miss Alice Harper. The
large living room and lanai were
thrown together, which gave the
terpischorean artists a commodious
el-shaped dancing pavillion. Artis
tic decorations, pretty costumes
and pretty maids in plenty, were
noticeable features of the event.
Shottly after 10 the masks werere
moved and in the midst of expres
sions of surprise and delight, de
licious refreshments sandwiched
themselves in among some excel
lent punch which had been punch
ed into an arpreciative state. The
music was furnished by the Ka
waihau Orchestra and was of the
standard so well known among
the dancing habitues. The guests,
many of whom were from Lihue,
on life and played the game. "Its
mv oft day," said Dean on leav
ing the box and judging from the
lack of steam behind his efforts,
there were none who could gain
say his statement. That the visit
ing team was getting down to busi
ness is indicated in the following
Theilman fanned, Dean fanned,
Ahana walked, Fernandes out to
K. A. C's.
That the Lihue's meant to even
scores was evident for in this inn
ing, Rodgrigues went out at 1st.
M. Soares flew lo 1st. J. Soares
made safe hit, Cumtnings singled
and J. Soares died on 2nd.
This w a s another interesting
inning Ellis went wrong on 1st,
Yamamoto singled but died o n,
2nd. M. Freitas out, pitcher to 1st.
K. A. C's.
Lihue had found itself at last
and Wilcox, though allowed to
walk was later made a party to a
pretty double out, when Sada
popped a fly to center who passed
it to 1st, who in turn dispatched it
to 2nd in time to sound the death
knell to Wilcox. Almeida fanned.
M, Freitas fanned, H. Malina
singled but got let out a t 2d.
Waiau made safe hit. Theilman
singled, but Waiau had his ambi
tion to reach 2d. prematurely
checked. - -
,K. A. C's.
Texeira fanned. Ambrosio made
safe hit but was tagged out at 2d.
Rodrigues singled. M. Soares
plugged a safe hit but Rodrigues
failed to beat the ball to 2d.
Ming Goon expired in a pop to c.
f., Ahana walked but was out at 3d
in a desire to take the third de
gree he got it. Fernafides fanned.
K. A. C's.
M. Soares out to first from
pitcher. J. Soares also died in the
s a m e manner, and Cummings
succumbed to the same treatment.
This was the shortest half inning
during the game and indicated ex
cellent work upon the part of the
Ellis made safe hit Yamamoto
made safe hit to r f , and would
have easily made a two bagger had
not Ellis sprained his ankle in
making 2d. Ellis left the diamond
and was substituted by J. Malina.
Yamamoto died a t 2d. Texeira
made a safe swat to 1 f and got
away with it until he reached 3d
when Ambrosio slammed on the
emergency brake. H. Malina drove
a safe hit, which, through a bunch
of errors, sent J. Malina home.

SOME PITCHER IN MCBRYDE
April 26. 1913
Editor Gardkn Island:
Kindly allow me space in your
paper for these few lines.
It is pretty generally understood
that F. S. Marques, a crack south
paw ball tosser o f the famous
Honolulu P. A. C.'s will sign up
with the McBryde baseball team
for the coming series. Should the
rumor prove to be true the Mc
Bryde team, with Marques deliv
ing from the box and Gabriel at
the receiving end, would form a
battery which would defy the
strongest aggregation of players
on the island.
Mr. and Mrs. C. Maser celebrat
ed their crystal wedding last Wed
departed for home at 2 A. m., after
wishing their hostesses many re
turns of the happy day.
The semi annual convention of
the Kauai Evangelical Association
at Kapaa which convened on the
18th. iust, was brought to a close
on the following Monday after a
very successful session. Besides
the members of the Hawaiian
Churches, Rev. J. M, Lydgate and
Rev. E. P. Erdman, representing
the Hawaiian Board in place of
Mr. Oleson who could not come
p;i account of ill health, were in
attendance. On Saturday after
noon, Hon. W. H. Rice and Mrs.
R. L. Wilcox came in for a short
Kapaa is an ideal place for the
convention of the ministets and
the other representatives o f the
c'hurches, not only because acco
modations could be secured near
the cliurcli, but because of its cool
breeze and velvety grassy mounds.
One member was heard to remark,
"One's shine never fades here."
The meetings which opened with
the sun-rise prayer meeting of the
Christian Endeavorers at 6 o'clock
in the morning, were so largely
attended, that the capa ity of Ka
paa's little church was taxed to the
At the business meetings of the
ministers which consumed the
forenoon, and also at the meetings
df the Sunday School and Chris
tian Endeavor Societies which fol
lowed in the afternoon, many valu
able suggestions were adopted for
the furtherance of the work in the
separate branphes named. One of
the, most important suggestions
voted upon was the selection of
Revt G. K. Waiau who has. been
living with his son H. W. Waiau
at Lihue, to serve as a special
Evangelical Committee of the Ka
uai Association at Hauapepe. This
action fills a long felt want in that
most populous village and Rev.
Waiau'a choice was a popular one
not only because of his special
fitness for the mission, but because
he is a hard and persistent worker.
O n Saturday night a cantata
entitled. The Water Fairies."
was given at the Kapaa Sunday
school hall by the Kapaa Interme
diate Christian Endeavor Society
under the direction of Mrs. Law
rence J. Mundon. Besides herself
were Mrs. Hendry Sheldon, Jr.
and Mrs. Kauaihilo and Misses
Haae, Mahoe, Akeo, Moe. Hano
and Liwai. When the curtain was
raised for the first act, the fairies
from vale, dale, sea and mountain
were seen together for a general
meriy time. The solos and choruses
sung during this act were so well
rendered that they brought out
well deserved applause which was
sustained until the ' fairie" girls
were compelled to respond with

role as queen

She came into her own when she
took her place on a pedestal hold
ing a wand and sang to the fairies
in acknowledgement of the homage
paid her by each one of them.
The tableau settings at the end
of each act brought the house
down each time as the bright colors
of the girls gowns and their beauti
ful faces showed off to good advan
tage when the light was thrown
To Mrs. Mundon who was ably
assisted by Mrs. R. M. Robertson
at the piano, is due much credit
for her pains-taking work in pre
paring such a high class play. It
was a gratifying substitution for
the usual convention concerts.
Mr. J. M. Kaneakua acted as
stage manager of the evening. In
his introductory remarks he re
ferred t o the singers as artists
which caused some smiles and
ripples but these soon faded
away for in justice to them may
be it be truly said, the "fairie"
girls were artists of no mean order.
On Sunday a record breaking
crowd of Kauai turned out for the
Sunday School Rally. Every dis
trict Sunday school gathered at
the Kapaa court house and formed
in a line of two and at the call of
Mr. W. Werner, Chief Marshall
of the day, the procession started
tor the Kapaa Sunday school hall
headed by the Hon. Win, Hyde
Rice, President of t h.e -Sunday
schools of the Territory of Hawaii,
and tlie Kapaa band and police.
Each Sunday school carried its
banner and the beautiful colors
they bore presented a dazzling
At the Kapaa Sunday school
hall the marches were received by
Mr. Rice and Rev. I. K. Kaauwai
of Kapaa. After a few fitting re
marks of welcome by the former
spoken in Hawaiian which plainly
showed that he was moved by the
sight brfore him, the parades were
disbanded and each Sundav school
took their places in the Hall.
The exercises were an' improve
ment over that of six months ago
a t Hanalei each Sunday school
had a good representation and
showed a long and careful pre
paration. Hanalei had the largest indivi
dual class, there being sixty-eight
members present. This class under
the direction of Mr. Wm. Werner
not only showed up well in num
ber, but also in its singing which
was greatly appreciated. Their
collection song composed by Ihe
able director was one of the special
features of the day.
The Koolau class was more than
able to hold its own. A beautiful
medley rendered by a sextett was
sung i n duets consisting of Miss
Sarah Huddv, Misses lennie and
Nancy Trask, Misses Victoria and
Loleka Castro, Mrs Annie Huddy,
This piece was greatly appreciated.
The. other features were the re
citation of the thirteen golden texts
of the first quarter by two little
girls, hardly six years old, Miss
Annie Kamau and Miss Margaret
Cuiuniings o f the Lihue Junior
Sunday School and the recital of
the Senior class of the story of the

bers of the convention were invited

While every exercise was well
executed numbers 4, 5, 7 and 8

applause from the visitors. The
singing was particularly enjoyable
and also the music by the bell
One of the pastors was heard to
remark, "well! my days are well
