THE GARDEN ISLAND. TUESDAY DEC. 23, 1919
.Only one game of tho Kawnihnu
Athletic Association was plnyed on
Sunday, that being between the Asa
hia and Farmers, which resulted in
a one-sided score of 15-1 in favor of
the former team. The large score
was due to the refusal of the captain
of, the Fanners, who was on the
mound himself, to ch:uu;e pi.cliers,
although his offerings were pounded
to all corners of the field. A change
in the early innings probably would
have resulted in a more decent score.
The second game scheduled for the
afternoon was forfeited by the Ha
waiis to the Stars owing to the non
appearance of n sufficient number of
players from the Hawaii team. Owing
to the fact that the season is drawing
to a close, and also because of the
poor showing of their team, enthus
iasm has naturally waned and this
resulted in the failure of a majority
of the players to show up.
The Asahis have now cinched the
championship of the second scries,
and the two remaining games sched
uled for next Sunday will bo called
off. A meeting of the ollicials of the
league will bo held this week to de
cide upon the dates for the play-off
against the Stars, champions of the
first series. Indications here arc that
a great deal of interest will bo taken
In the local championship series, but
to one who has closely observed the
play of the two teams in the second
series, there is no doubt about the
superiority of the Asahis, who should
take the championship without much
Four members of the local Asahi
team have been picked to play on the
All-Kauai Japanese team which will
meet the Asahis of Honolulu. They
are Tsunehiro, shortstop, Morita and
King, outfielders, and Shirai, sub.
What the Kauai boys will be able to
do to their Honolulu kinsmen is
problematical, but the team as select
ed ought to make a good showing.
Kiong Soong, third baseman of the
All-Chinese team of Honolulu, which
recently won the 1919 baseball champ
ionship of the Hawaiian Islands, and
formerly a player on the All-Maui
team, will soon be a Kauai resident.
He drew No. 2 in the recent drawing
for the AVailua homestead lands and
has been looking over the site of his
future home during the past few days,
preparatory to the choosing of lots
this week. He ought to be a welcome
addition to tho All-Kauai team.
Prospective homesteaders arriving
from Honolulu last Friday were quite
numerous. They came to familiarize
themselves with the Wailua home
stead lands before making their
selections of lots to-day. Some of
them seemed to have rather hazy
ideas as to what tho lot of a home
steader would be, and a few express
ed themselves as being disappointed
in tho unpromising look of the new
lands nnd the largo amount of pre
liminary work that would be neces
sary before the land could be planted.
It is also reported that several of
those with lucky numbers, decided
that homesteading did not look very
promising after all, and took the
"Kinau" back for Honolulu on Satur
day without waiting to select the

Manuel U. Aguiar, Jr., our genial
representative, seems to have been
quite busy the last few days showing
the prospective homesteaders the
"wonders" of tho new Wailua lands.
Ho is quite familiar with these lands
and new comers report that he gave
them a lot of valuable information.
Iluilding activities took another
spurt here last week. Another gen
eral store is being erected rigljt in
the center of the village. In addition
to the other new buildings already
under construction. It is expected
that several other buildings for vari
ous purposes will be started after tho
A peculiar accident occurred here
last week. The Filipino driver of
Chevrolet car No. 751 started to
crank his car, with another of his
countryman in tho driver's seat who
is reported to have been moving tho
gears. The car started with a jerk
after being cranked, but the owner,
who did tho cranking managed to
step aside. Another Filipino, stand
ing in front of the machine and back
of tlje man who did the cranking,
was not so fortunate however, as the
car knocked him down. He is now
recovering from his injuries at the
Kalia hospital The automobile
came to a stop after striking the
steps of a nearby building.
The girls reserve of the Kauai
High School gave a very novel and
attractive Christmas entertainment
to the school and interested friends
Friday morning. . One of the veran
das over-looking the lawn was fitted
up 33 a stage on which was present
ed an exceptionally pleasing program
consisting of Christmas carols, Christ
mas pantomimes, a flower dance, etc.
The pantomimes which were in
character, were particularly original
and taking, and were Illustrative of
tho story that was read by one of the
girls. Tho wholo affair does much
credit ' to tho girls and to Miss Wil
son who promoted and conducted the
same. " ' ' f -
