Two Poor Games
of Baseball Pulled
Off Last Sunday
Kilauea 7, Lihue 6
McBryde 11, Makaweli 1
Kilauea turned the trick Sunday
and won their first game by nosing
out Lihue at Lihue Park by a score of
7 to 6. Lihue must have had a horse;
shoe concealed somewhere because
they made enough errors to have lost
the game half a dozen. times and the
lack of team work displayed would
have lead a stranger to believe the
team was composed of a bunch of
deck hands off the Ktnau,
The biggest surprise of the day
was the exceedingly poor showing
made by Lovell at second. He foz
zolled everything that came his way
and had four bad errors chalked
against him. As a matter of fact his
work had all the earmarks of a has
been. This is much to be regretted
as Lovell played an excellent game
ut second throughout the 1911) season
ahd equallyy as good! if not better
work was expected of him this season.
Prloste, at first, also seemed to bo
under a hypnotic spell and was respon
sible for the loss of seven put out.
Tho Kilauea lads made an cxcolient
showing. Though not strong in their
pitching staff, their fielding and team
work made up for this weakness.
Young Kelll, Kilauea, Kilausa's re
ceiver is a comment. His work Sun
day showed up to good advantage for
a boy so young. Ho is weak in beg
ging to second, but time will over
come that difficulty. The three

Koloa to have
New Water Supply
Some time ago the Board of Health
condemned tho Koloa water nupply
and system as unsanitary and Insuffi
cient. The Koloa plantation is now
contemplating putting in a thoroughly
satisfactory new system deriving tho
water from the Cropp tunnel In the
gap at tho base of Kahili. It is esti
mated that the installation of-this sys
tem will cost about $30,000 and the
plantation proposes that the County
assume one half, of tho expense,, and
participate in the benefits.
This tunnel was dug some 20 years
or so ago, with the purpose of secur
ing Irrigation water. The amount
secured was too small to be of much
value for this purpose, but for domes
tic purposes It will be quite adequate,
and of excellent quality being right
out of the heart of tho mountain ab
solutely free from all possibility of
contamination or disturbance.
WD. McBryde has been appointed
a special committee of the Board of.
supervisors, in'conjunctlon County En
gineer, to look Into the matter and re
port on the same.

The remodelling of tho camps on a
largo plantation is a big undertaking,
which cannot be done In a fow weoks
or a few months, especially in con
junction with the hundred and one
other things that must be done on a
plantation. But all the places are
moving in the right direction, and a
very commendable and intelligent In
terest Is being shown In all such mat
ters. Plans are in hand to place on each
of the larger plantations a man Wel
fare worker, to handle athletic and
other recreational features and a
woman, preferably a trained nurse,
to look after the homes and children.
Several of these' workers are already
engaged, and will be on the ground in
their respective fields In a few weeks.
It is the settled policy of the wel
fare department to furnish recreational
facilities only as fast as they can be
supervised and wisely used by wel

is no use of having halls, clubrooius,
athletic equipment, etc. provided, un
