, LEAGUE BASEBALL
The chances are batter than oven
that Kauai will bo having league base
ball in the near future. President B.
D. Baldwin, of the Kauai Athletic As
sociation, says it is time wo had some
organized baseball and accordingly
has issued a call for a meeting to bo
held at the County Building next Fri
day afemoon at 3 o'clock, for the pur
pose of organizing a league. It is es
pecially requested that all plantation
managers bo present, but every one
interested is cordially invited.
Now that the boys are back from
military service, there is no reason
why wo should not enjoy some first
class ball, such as we had boforo this
war. There are any number of high
class players on the island and it will
bo no trouble at all to form a league
of four or five teams.
Llhuo can bo counted upon to enter
a team, so will the old stand-bys, Ma
kawell and McBrydc. Manager Lar
son, of Kilauea, Is enthusiastic over
the prospect and will undoubtedly of
fer a team. Manager Molters, of Kea
lla, is a rapid fan and can be counted
on to do all in his power to boost tho
game. Tho Lihue team will have a
good friend in Manager Moler, who.
when he was at McBryde, was the man
responsible for that excellent team.

Mendes Demands Recount
Tho very lose contest botwoon Bet
tencourt and Mendes for tho office of
Supervisor for Kawalhau promises to
run to a second and even more ex
citing chapter. Mendes claims that
through carelessness or crookedness
he has been defrauded of certain
votes which properly belonged to him
and which would glvo him tho advan
tage over his rival, and accordingly
he demands an official recount.
It appears that contrary to tho
usual custom, tho official count was
conducted with undue haste, so that it
would have been very easy to makes
a slip of a voto or two. Altogether
there wero eighteen candidates run
ning for tho various offenses, so that
tho official record sheet was neces
sarily a large one and In tallying the
returns it would bo necessary to
jump from place to place on this
sheet with the chance, If It wero done
hurriedly, that mistakes might be
made. That it was dono hurriedly
is testified to by disinterested ob
servers. One such, who attempted
to tally the returns as called off by
tho chairman of the local election
board, found that tho calling off was
too speedy for him, yet he is recog
nized as an expert in those matters.
There are also two votes which
were thrown out by tho inspectors
of election because of irregularity of
Attorney P. L. Rice is taking up
the matter in the Interest of Mendes
and has gone to town on the case.
In the meantime tho bunch of pos
sibilities in tho way of votes cast in
tho case, are quietly reposing in a
sealed official bag in the county clerks

any way, influence us in determining
our values, and ns a matter of fact
was emphatically opposed to them.
Mr. Brandt's Idea was that a low,
almost nominal, value bo placed on
such lots as had been occupied, for
many years, by kamaalnas. He so
