THE firs! r ball series
It remained for last Sunday to
give the Garden Island baseball
fans one of the best exhibitions of
ball that has been on tap this seasoii
when a ten-inning game was play
ed between the Kilaueas and the
Koloas with a score of 2-1 in favor
of Koloa. This paper, following
the first game of the series, pre
dicted success for the Koloa team
and that it stands second at the
end of the first series, indicates
how nearly correct i t was in its
prohecy. Girvin is an excellent
leader, and the team proved obe
dient followers, the battery being

The gattie at Makaweli, between
the K. A. C.'s and the home ag
gregation was a surprise, as the
first, very naturally created a n
assurance of ultimate success. But
the home team evinced no alarm,
evidently thinking "that a good
beginning means a bad ending."
At any rate, such proved to be the
case for when taps sounded, the
score stood 18-6 in favor of the
home team. A whole hat full of
errors of various kinds were noted
on both sides, though not quite so
much among the liQiue boys. The
K A. C. pitcher was swatted in
all directions, and his support was
uoticebly weak. A fly from Wilcox
to Kaneha, concluded the lat act
and the curtain dropped on the
stage upon which the first series
was ended. Wilcox appeared to
the best advantage, of any of the

' home team,' if there was any one
man who deserves "special" men
tion it would be Kruse, the new
pitcher. He is but 16 years of age,
but delivers a ball with terrific
force and with splendid exactness.

one-sided, it proved highly inte

At McBryde, the home team
came through with its boast that it
would win every game of the first
series. With an entirely new bat

team and moreover, walloped them
to a frazzle, the score being 12-3
in favor of McBryde. The visiting

start to finish, the short being
especially out of form. The fact
that on this ground was to be the
final test for supremacy drew an
immense crowd of fans who were
united in praise for the McBryde
team for its excellent work and
gentlemanly conduct during the
closing series. In the ppinion of
wise-acres, Koloa will win the
second series championship.
General complaint is heard as
to the shortness of the baseball
series, the contention in each in
stance being that time does not
permit a fair test of the skill of the
various teams. Tl.eie is another
point to be- considered also, one of
no little importance one in fact
which might b e considered o f
grave importance, since the success
of the league depends so largely
'ipon it. This point has to do with
those who have rendered financial
aid to the league. They have done
so, (generously) hoping to see a
good ball season. However, the
season being half over, it appears'
to the majority of them that the
same should be extended some
what. The granting of such exten
sion will make il less difficult to
solicit finances for next year, and
if the directors of the league can
see their way clear to acceed to the
demand for a longer series, it will
greatly strengthen itself i u
eyes of -its supporters.

of eats and drinks, befitting the

On Saturday evening last Mr.
and Mrs T. Brandt gave a poi
supper in honor of Miss Woodman
who is shortly leaving for her home
Low tables, heavily laden with
suitable viands were spread on the
shaded lawn, and around them
gathered the guests to the number
of 80 odd who had come, some of
them from distant parts of the is
land. The happy combination of
moonlight, Japanese lanterns and
Hawaiian music was very artistic
and called forth many enthusiastic
suggestions of fairy hand.
After supper the guests enjoyed
themselves i 11 various informal
ways from cosv tete-a-tetes in quiet
corners to dancing on the lanai.
Towards the close of the even
ing Mi. J. M. Lydgate in the ab
sence of the new president, Rev.
C. Milliken, presented t o Miss
Woodman, on behalf of the Wai

travelling bag in recognition of her
valuable services as promoter, mov

club. In facetious and happy phrase
he congratulated her on being the
other kind of English woman not
the suffragete kind of which we
hear so much these days, and as
sured her that the gentle woman of
her type wherever met in any land,
was a gracious and inspiring in
fluence for good. He bespoke for
her much success and many friends
wherever she might go, but doubt
if she would find any more loyal
and appreciative than those she
had made here.
Miss Woodman in 'return, in a
few well chosen words expressed
her very grateful appreciation of
the honor that was done to her,
and the kindly feeling of her
