SCENE OE FIGHT
Two men, one a Portuguese nnd
theothcr Hawaiian, entered the
store of Jose Gomez, in Hanapepe,
last Friday afternoon and, it is
claimed, engaged in a fight with
Goiiitjz and his clerks, during
which show cases were broken and
other damage done. The men were
finally ejected and turned over to
'a policeman, who started to take
them to the jail at Waimea, On
the way, however, they made such
pleas to Gomez that he was per
suaded to drop prosecution.
Upon his return to the store,
Vipmez found one of the men there,
much to his surprise; and he seem
ed in such a bellicose mood that
another fight ensued. It is al
leged, however, that the store man
finally not the best of the argu
ment. The statement i s made that
liquor was probably at the bottom
of the tiouble.

THE J. H C. T
The baseball game in Lihue park
Sunday afternoon between the
home team nnd the J. A. C. slab
sters was one of the finest exhi
bitions of the national sport seen
on Kauai this season. In view of
the defeat of the Makawelis bv the
Lihues the previous Sundav, there
was a feeling in the air that the
"fur would flv,"so that the crowd
was a very large one.
The Lihues had the best of it
from the jump, when they threw
the Japanese out in almost one,
two, three order. The Japanese,
evidently feeling a bit confident,
saved their principal pitcher and
put Daijiro in the box.
The Lihues scored one in the
first innings and one in the third.
Then the Japanese changed pitch
ers, puttinc in their famous south
paw. Before he could steady
down, however, the homers got
two more men over the plate,
leaving the score at the beginning
of the fifth innings four to a goose
egg in favor of the Lihues.
The story of the remainder of
the game is easily told. It was a
case of "biff-bang" straight
through. A wild through by Li
hue to third let a Japanese to the
plate in the fifth, and in the four
last innings they scored two other
runs, In the meanwhile, however,
the Lihues had put three men
across, so that the score at the end
was 7 to 3 in favor of the locals.
It must bt said that the Lihues
have improved wonderfully in the
past mouth. Kuhlmauu is pitch
ing great ball, while little Malina'
holds him in fine shape. All of
the other players have also im
proved wonderfully. The batting
of the team is particularly heavy
and effective. In fact it begins to
look as though in place of being a
tail-ender, the Lihue team will be
the problem tor the others in the
The defeat of Makaweli bv Mc
Bryde and the failure of the J, A.
C. team at Lihue brings about a
tie for the championship of the
first series between the McBrvde

It will be necessary to play off
this tie, and the present arrange
ment is to have the final contest in
Lihue next Sundav afternoon.
When the schedule was originally
made out, next Sunday was left
blank, it being figured that there
might be just such a tie as has tak

that thev had an "off dav."Surelv
