Llhue 16, Makawell 7
Sixteen to seven does not sound very
thrilling for a baseball game. Yet
there were quite a few thrillers scat
tered throughout the game; the moat
conspicuous one being the bonohead
play of the season pulled by Prloste.
It happened In the fifth inning. Maka
well was at bat and had the bases full.
Tho next batter up got a hit, rounded
first and went to second, while tho
first two men ahead of Him scored.
Prloste, on first for Llhue, claimed tho
last man had not touched first, so ho
walks over to the pitcher, takes the
ball and strides majestically back to
first (without looking back). By tho
time he reached his position the two
remaining runners had scored.
Lihue landed on Furtatlo at the
start and hammered him unmercifully
throughout the game, with numerous
two-baggers, and a home run by Prl
oste, in which the man of big feet
actually made the circuit.
The work of Lihue's outfield was a
feature of tho day. They simply ate
'cm alive, from any distance, height or
Mitzu, Lihuo's shortstop, made a
difficult catch that drew applause
from the fans. A fly ball came his
way. He saw he could not get under
It if he ran backward facing the ball,
so he turned rfnd ran with the ball,
making tho catch with the sphere fall
ing into his mit from over his shoulder.
It is one of the most difficult catches
known to baseball, and is seen about
once in a blue moon.
Six times at bat and four runs, two
of which wore two-baggers, is the rec
ord of Manuel Perreira, center fielder
for Lihue. Watase, Makawell's crack
. little centerfiolder, was five times at
bat and brought in three runs. Tank,
Lihue's catcher, was six times at bat
and brought in three runs. Carvalho,
right field for Lihue, was five times at
bat and made two runs. Okuda, Prloste
and Dol, of Lihue, were up six times
each and brought in two runs each.
Pedro, catcher, Burgess, at third,
and Watase at center, for Makaweli,
all played fine ball, and kept their
heads at all times.
Musaro, scorekeeper for Lihue, has
a siege of boils and was not ablo to be
present at this game, and as no com
plete score was kept, we are unable to
give tho score by innings.
Makee 9, McBryde 3
With the runner-up position at stake,
the McBrydes were again defeated by
tho Makees on the latter's grounds on
Sunday to the tune of 0 to 3. One of
the largest crowds that ever witnessed
a baseball .game on tho local diamond
was present, and automobiles sur
rounded tho field as far as parking
The Makces certainly have the Mc
Bryde's number safely hidden away
every time the two teams meet. Cap
tain "Henderson's men 'would play
rings around tho Makawells, and Ki
laueas, and make tho Lihues extend
themselves to beat them, but when
tho Makee clan makes its appearance
thoy seem to forget themselves and let
the Kapaa boys scoro almost at will.
Pitcher Wramp, the elongated fling
or, who Is the one best bet of tho Mc
Brvdes this year, lasted only two in
nlngs, being "yanked in the third, after
five runs had been scored off his de
livery. Robello was called in to stop
tho rally and allowed four runs during
the last six Innings.
The Maltees started their dark horso
pitcher, "Sunburn" Cummings, who
had been held in reserve since tho be
Binning of tho season, and ho made
cood with a vengeance. Although a
trifle wild at times, ho pitched a great
game, allowing only two singles, but,
unfortunately, these two hits were
. mado each timo with a man on third
McBryde's runs came in tho first and
last innings, as "Sunburn" was unhit
table for seven innings In succession.
Aside from tho excellent pitching
of Cummings, terrific hitting by the
winners featured tho fray. Hoopil se
cured two doubles and a single, and
Bun ileo was a close second with two
sinclos and a double.
Tho Makees started their scoring in
tho second stanza. Hoopli's single, fol
lowed by Soong's double, a fielder's
choice and a hoot by Andrado in right
brought in three runs. A singlo by Bun
Hco. followed by Spalding's error
Hoopii's double and a couple of infield
grouuders let in another four runs in
Allen Wilcox came over from Town
by the Klnau this morning.
The Misses Lindsay, two sisters, of
Maui, aro visiting friends in Makaweli.

last Saturday. Dora is going to Co
lumbia University, New York, to con
tinue her studies after a year at tho
University of Hawaii. Mrs. Broadbent
will probably go with her to see her
settled there. Dora gives promiso of
brilliant attainments and her friends
aro justified in expecting great things
tho third. Bun Heo doubled in the 4th
and when Madclros booted Hoopii's
grounder, another run came in. Hoo
pil scored when tho visitor's infield
committed two more errors in an at
tempt to catch him napping.
In tho initial frame, a walk, a field
er's choico and a timely singlo by
Henderson scored a run for the Eleele
boys. After that inning, thoy laid
down and did not wako up until the
ninth. Henderson was safe whon King
dropped his liner. Spalding mado Mc
Brydo's second safe hit of the day, and
Henderson scored on King's high peg
to tho plate. Gomes grounded to Cum

Tho Hawaiian Sugar Company tax
appeal caso came up for hearing before
the board last Friday and proved to be
one of such gravity and Importance
that It ran over to the next day and
took up all of Saturday.
The returns made by the plantation
set tho value at $4,000,000, which tho
assessor raised to $4,500,000. Tho plan
tation contended that by tho terminal
tlon of tho Government lease of Hana-
pope, they had lost 1,248 acres of their,
best laud. Also Lahaina cano had
gone back on them, and none of the
now varieties would take It's place.
For these reasons they considered that
an increased valuation was not justi
The tax department, on tho other
hand, emphasized the fact that tho
profits for the last eight years had ag
gregated over $7,000,000, which capital
ized nt G per cent would give a valua
tion of somo $13,000,00, at 12 per cent,
$0,500,000 and at 1G per cent even it
would still give a valuation of nearly
$5,000,000. Accordingly, they claimed,
$4,500,000 was a very modest rating.
The board reserved doclslon until
some time in the near future, to enable
them to review the evidence and the
pleadings more carefully.
Tho board consisted of E. M. Cheath
am, Frank Crawford and C. B. Makee.
Judgo Lightfoot represented tho tax
department, and W. L. Stanley, tho

WALTER EKLUND ON THE JOB
Walter Eklund, representative of
tho von Hamm-Young Company, made
delivery last Tuesday of a twin six
1920 Packard to Mr. B. D. Baldwin, of
Makaweli. This came as a complete
surprise to Mrs. Baldwin, who know
nothing of the transaction until the
beautiful big car came up tho palm
fringed driveway of tho Baldwin
home. It is needless to say that Mrs.
Baldwin was highly pleased.
This is tho second Packard Mr.
Baldwin has purchased. The first
one was a 1910 model. Seeing the
two cars together one realizes the
great improvement made in tho last
ten years. Tho old model Is re
splendent with brass lamps and
trimmings, presto-lite tank, etc. and
had no starting mechanism other than
tho. good right arm, while the 1920
beauty is magnificent in its very sim-
licity graceful stream linos, and
every convenience and improvement
known to tho industry.
Mr. Eklund also mado delivery of
two Dodges. Tho purchasers of these
two cars saved a hundred dollars
apiece by having signed an order for
them before the re'eont raise. Two
moro Dodges aro to be delivered soon
under the same agreement. "It pays
to get orders In early," says Eklund.

If Llhue has tjie jinks on the Ma

tho McBrydes, Lihue and McBryde
continue to cut each other's throats,
Kilauea hands a knockout punch to
the Lihues, and Makaweli docs like
wiso to the Makees. Indications aro
that this year's pennant will bo won
by a very' narrow margin with three
teams in the race right up to the end
of tho season.
Wramp looks llko a million dollars
against the Kllaucas and Lihues, but
just give a glance at last Sunday's
box score. That is why interest in
baseball surpasses all othoi- forms of
athletics. Its the uncertainty of the
outcomo that has such n strangle hold
on tho fans from week to week.
If Kilauca's jlnz on the Lihues is in
good working order next Sunday, and
the Makaweli lads are ripe for another
victory, wouldn't tho raco bo oven

ulated upon tho most efficient manner
in which their ball ground Is policed.
A quarter inch rope marking tho spec
tators' line and camp policeman Paul
S. Loomls kept tho players' territory
absolutely freo of spectators. It would
be well for other league ground offi
cials to try tho effectiveness of a few
hundred feet of quarter Inch rope.
The question: "How far, or whero,
would Prlosto have to knock a baseball
to make a homo run?" was definitely
answered last Sunday. All he has to
do is to knock the ball ovor a fence,
where tho fielder can't get it.
It is a pleasure to watch Burgess,

PAYS KAUAI A VISIT
Mr. and Mrs. Gilbert Grosvenor, of
Washington, D. C, visited Kauai last
Friday and Saturday. Mr. Grosvenor
is tho editor in chief of the National
Geographic Magazine and Is visiting
tho islands for tho purposo of obtain
ing material for a Hawaiian number of
his magazine. Ho spent six weeks on
the Island of Hawaii, and was inform
ed in Honolulu that one day on Kauai
would bo sufficient.
Mr. and Mrs. Grosvenor are both
strenuous sight-seers and in the two
days that they wero hero, saw enough
to know that two weeks would have
been nono too long to visit the points
of interest on this island.
They devoted Friday mainly to tho
Waimea Canyon, which they found
much finer and more impressive than
they had imagined. Mr. Grosvenor re
gretted that he was not ablo to spend
a week there. As it was, ho secured n
number of very fine pictures, but ho
would havo liked to take a great many

Mr. Grosvenor doesn't think very
much of Honolulu's judgment concern
ing beautiful scenery.
Tho forthcoming Hawaii number of
the Geographic will bo one of except
ional beauty and will do abundant
credit to the Islands. Several persons
of special aptness will collaborate on
It, and every effort will bo mado to

well as artistically beautiful.
JOSEPH B. STICKNEY ARRIVES
WITH COLUMBIA SPORTSTER
Joseph B. Stickney, representing
tho Pond Company sales department,
arrived Friday morning with a Co
lumbia 4 passenger sportster which ho
Is demonstrating. This is the first
Columbia to come to this Island, and
It certainly is a beauty. "These cars
have been selling so fast, wo havo not
been ablo to keep one long enough to
bring it to Kauai until now," stated
In tho Columbia six you get every
thing that you got in any other car,
and a number of vitally important
features you can get in no other car.
For example, tho Columbia has non
synchronizing springs, which make
tho car easy riding over the roughest
roads. They aro an outstanding
automotive achievement accomplish
ed by Columbia engineers.
"Another Important feature of tho
Columbia is tho "Sylphon" thermosta
tically controlled radiator shutter.
This control enables tho motor to
perform in -all seasons of tho year at
maximum efficiency. It eliminates
car disfigurations, such as hood covors,
blankets, cardboard protectors it
puts an end to hard starting and slow

In which you will find tho "Sylphon"
Thermostatically Controlled Radiator
Shutter as standard equipment.".
