danger to their interests if the di

the supreme court, have taken no

law such papers must be filed thir

action taken under the old conven

one of them the friendly test case

The special series in the new
baseball lesgue started off quite
satisfactorily Sunday afternoon.
The first game wns a straight go
between the Germans and the Jap

the former to the tune of 9 to 1.
Henry Waiau pitched for the Jap
anese, while young Elinhorsr, twirl
ed the sphere for the victors. The
Germans raily had the best of the
argument from the start.
The second game started late,
on account of which it had to ba
called in the first half of the eighth.
It was between the Huleins and
Filipinos, and at the end of the
seventh stood 9 to 14. In the first
half of the eighth, the Filipinos
had two men down and hud made
five runs, tying the score, when
the game was called on account of
Technically, the game should
have gone to the Huleias, the score

call it a tie and play it off next
Sunday morning at ten o'clock.
So there will be another game.
The series starts out very well,
and it looks as though there may
be some good ball before it is over.

at this time is to keep up baseball
