Tlm:e Portugese and four Fili

They were going at a high speed,
and when near the trestle it was
noticed that a stick of wood was
lying across the track. It was too
late to stop, so the car struck the
timber, knocking it off; but in the
excitement the Filipino leapt from
the car, and went down into the .
gulch a few feet ahe".d.
A suspicion that the timber was i

The Lihue baseball team was
shown its weaknesses on Sunday
when it came up against the aggre
gation lrom Kawaihau, a'ld went
down to defeat to the tune of 12 to
5 in a practice game. The game
was played on the Lihue diamond,
and a similar practi e game will
probably be played between
the same teams on the Kawaihau
field next Sunday. Lihue's weak
ness is chiefly in the lack of a com
petent pitching staff. Afong fail
ed to show up, and a large number
of hits were made off both Robert
son ami Morrow. The game was
slow and practically featureless.
Hits and errors were plentiful on
both sides. It is to be hoped that
both teams, and especially the Li
hue team, will manage to pull
themselves together before the
commencement of t h e League
sanies on the 17th.
The two teams lined up as fol
