10 GOOD BALL
Makaweli cleaned up on Kilauea
8 to G, which shows the homo team
by no means had a walk over. No
boto Ohama, Makaweli's pitcher ap
pears to have been the bright and par
ticular star of the occasion, with live
strike-outs, no passes, two two-baggers
and a single to his credit, besides
holding the visitors down to four hits.
Dock Wood opened up for Kilauea,
but Damkiogcr's peaches soon got the
old man's number and ho was replaced
by Klngl, who did well for a while
striking out four men. But he, too,
was later replaced by Sam Kai, who
also struck out four men.
The Kilauea pitchers walked eight
men in the nine innings. Makaweli
got twelve hits, to Kilauca's four.
From the fact that six of Makawell's
runs were scored in the first three In
nings, it looks very much as though
Wood was responsible for the loss of
Makawells first baseman, made three
errors in four innings, which means
that he was responsible for three of
the visitors reaching first safely.
The batteries were: Makaweli No
boto Ohama, p; M. Furtado, c; Kilauea
Wood, Kingl, Kai, p; N. Renoaldo, c;
umpires, Sanborn and Fernandez.
LI HUE MAKEE
Beforo one of the largest congrega
tion of spectators that every witnessed
a baseball game in Kapaa, the Lihues,
1919 Champions of' Kauai, defeated
tho Makees in an exciting game by the
score of 7 to G. " It was anybody's
game up to tho last inning, as the Ma
keqs had held the lead 'from the first
inning to tho Gth when Lihue forged
ahead, and by using good judgment In
yanking Mitsu and substituting Oku
da for him in tho box, held their oppo
nents scoreless until the end. Lihue
would probably have departed for
home in different spirits had Mitsu
been left to continue, as he was rather
unsteady, allowing hits when hits
meant runs and the Makees wore
stealing bases on him almost at will,
duo to his failure to hold the runners
closo to their stations.
After Lihue had been retired in one-two-threo
order in their behalf of the
first inning, the Makees scored a brace
of runs with the aid of two hits. After
Arcla had fanned the ozone, King and
Bun Hee, singled in succession, King
scoring when Fernandez in" left let
Bun Hee's single go through his legs
Bun Hee stole second. Tsunehiro
walked, and when Mitsu threw to sec-
ond to catch him stealing, Bun Hee
scored from third.
In the second inning Lihue scored
their first run, with Perreira on third
Rodrlguos dropped a throw from Bun
on Prloste's grounder. Bun Hee also
dropped a perfect throw from catcher
Soong to catch Priostc stealing, but
no damage was done. In their half,
the Makees scored another two runs,
and it looked as if victory had been
safely tucked away for tho day, as the
score was then 4 to 1. Rodrlgucs, first
up, was hit by Mitsu, and Morita was
safe when Doi dropped ahard chance.
Arcla was out on an infield fly but
Mitsu and Ohama collided, causing tho
latter to drop tho ball and both run
ners advanced. King grounded to
Mitsu and Rodrlgues was caught at
tho plate. King stole second and Bun
hee made a timely single, scoring both
King and Morita. Bun was out steal
There was nothing doing for both
sides in tho third, but In the fourth
tho Lihues camo back strong and
knotted up the count, making it four
all. Okuda secured a free ticket, stole
second and scored on Perreira's single
to center ofter Ohama had grounded
out. Arcla in center had time enough
to nip Okuda at tho plate by a good
throw, but threw wild and Perreira
reached third before tho ball was re
trieved. Priosto walked and stole sec
ond. After Doi had popped to Bun
Hee, Mitsu singled very timely and
Perreira and Priosto scored. Mitsu
was stealing third after he had nego
tlated second safely, Tho Makees
again demonstrated their ability to
score Mitsu in their half. After Mori
ta had grounded out, Akita to Priosto,
and Arcia had again fanned, King got
to first on Akita's error. He stole sec
ond and went to third when Okuda let
Ohama's throw get away. Bun Heo
walked and stole second. Tsunehiro

KOLOA POST OFFICE RAISED TO
Tho Koloa postofilco has been raised
to the rank of fourth class. Much
credit Is due Postmaster Smith for his
faithfulness and efficiency, of which
this raise is the result.
t Kapaa Notes
The Hawaiian Canneries Company
started their summer packing season
last Friday with their first crop of
pines from Moloaa. Duo to the long
haul made necessary from this section
the factory has been connected by rail
with tho system of tho Makee Sugar
Company, who will deliver all the
fruit to tho cannery from Anahola.
As tho now rail connection links tho
factory with tho Kca(lla landing, tho
handling of all of their incoming
freight and outgoing finished product
will bo greatly facilitated.
Building operations on tho now
building of tlio Bank of Kauai has been
delayed several weeks owing to the In
ability of C. B. Hofgaard & Co., of
Waimea to secure delivery of somo
special sidings ordered through them.
As a result, it is not expected that the
building will bo ready until sometime
late in July.
In their recent campaign, the prot
estant churches of tho Island raised
$17,000, which added to the $80,000
already given makes $97,000 for Kauai.
This is a part of tho $400,000 being
raised in the territory and is to bo ex
pended in a general expansion of tho
educational and religious program for
SCRAP AT KALAHEO
Sunday Juno Gth was a great day at
Kalahco, Holy Ghost celebration being
the attraction and Saturday night the
feast was ushered In by a widely at
tended dance in the Kalaheo Social
Among those present w;ro tho
brothers of Manuel and Albert, their
surname is in charity withheld, well
known unruly gents of that burgh.
Both. Manuel and Albert were hunker
ing for a fero for all fight and appeared
at the dance with blood in their eyes.
An opportunity for a scrap camo
sooner than they expected and both
brothers met their Waterloo and ro
coived a good beating, mainly at tho
hands of Louis M. Rego, tho socalled
Maui Scrapper, although born and
raised in Hanamaulu.
Louis and other police officers woro
present, in civilian attire and were
taking in the dance from tho dais,
whore a Lihue orchestra" was dis
coursing sweet and enticing music.
Non dancers crowded the hall to such
an extent that dancing was nearly
mado impossible. An appeal to tho
police olllcers to push the spectators
back, brought our heroes on tho dance
Hoor. When an attempt was made to
lino up tho otherwise 'orderly crowd,
insulting remarks were mado to the
officers. Brother Manuel seems to
have rushed in from behind and struck
a blow at Louis's shoulder. A general
meloo followed and tho unruly ones
soon had enough, five of thorn being
laid out cold by Louis's mighty wallop.
Instead of accepting his well-deserved
beating, Manuel rushed to Li
hue, engaged legal talent and had oiTl
rer Rego arrested on tho charge of
assault and battery.
Wednesday last the caso camo up
for trial in the Lihuo District Court
before Judge Hjorth.
Attornoy C. J. Holt appeared for tho
prosecuting witness and Senator J.
It. Coney for Rego. A lenghty legal
battle ensued and when tho smoke
had cleared away, his honor promptly
found defendant not guilty nd dis
Tho Court remarked that evidently
Manuel had been the aggressor and
voiced regret, that Manuel had not re
ceived a more severo beating than ho
As an aftermath both brothers havo
been arrested by Sheriff Rico charged
with nssault and battery on a police

HUI OF WAIMEA GIVE CONCERT
The Hut of Waimea staged n very
enjoyable concert and dance at the
Waimea Hall last Saturday evening
under the direction of Mrs. S. Kelll
nol of Kapaa.
The main feature of tho evening
was a little play in two acts entitled
"Hawaiian hospitality" shown In pun
tonium with a sort of singing abligato.
Tho first scene depicted -a bevy of
prim-esses, representing the principal
islands of Hawaii, out in the open, en
gaged 1 nthe congenial Hawaiian
pastimes of singing, dancing nnd
wearing of leis.
As the hula music struck up tho
leading princess beckoned to her sis
ters to respond in the dance, just then
a curious tourist In search of amuse
ment walks In, admires the scene, and
Is cordially received by the bevy of
Tho second act reveals a luau in
progress, in honor o fthe tourist, ac
companied with suitable singing. In
tho progress of the hula the tourist
urges the leading princess to dance the
hula kul with him, which she gracious
ly consents to do, and in which she
shows much artistic skill and charm.
The scene closes with the tourist
crowning tho princess with lots char
acteristic of each Island.
Mrs. Hart took the role of the lead
ing princess, and did the part won
derfully well. Wni, Wright made a
typical tourist appreciative a good
(hint; when he saw it. Mrs. Hunt sang
most effectively "Pawaa o ka LanI"
composed by the late queen, accompa
nied In the chorus by Hart. Their
voices blended remarkably well. Geo.
K. Kauoha, sang "Patches" In charac
ter, with clothing to suit, and danced
a Jig all of which "brought down the
Judge Kapahee and his group and
Mrs. Henry Blake and her trio did
ample justice to the enviable musical
reputation of Koloa.
Encore after encore was called for
and tho prompt nd happy responses
were in the nature of the songs and
hulas of 30 years ago, and specially do
ligh'ed those whosememories went
buck that far.
The Hut wishes to thank tho many
friends who contributed to tho suc
cess of the evening.
The concert and dance will bo re
peated at Kapaa this coming Saturday
evening, a rare opportunity not to bo
