(By the Kapaa Korreapondcnt)
Before the greatest crowd that ever
witnessed a hasehall gamo in Knpaa,
the Lihuo and Makee teams made base
ball history for Kauai on Sunday by
playing sixteen innings to a two all
tie, and old timers as well as new
comers all agree that it is the best
game of baseball ever seen on this is
land, bar none. The huge crowd over
flowed tho playing ileld, and the gamo
had to ))o delayed several times to get
tho spectators back behind the lines.
For intense- moments, sensational
fielding feats, and phenomenal head
work, tho game could not have been
better if it had been made to order.
Those whose stars wore shining the
brightest on Sunday were "Sunburn"
. Cummings of the Makees, who held
his opponents runless for fifteen in
nings, Hodrigucs who scooped up sev
eral wild pegs to tho first station at
critical moments, and catcher Soong,
to whom must go the credit of saving
the gamo for his team in tho seventh.
In this inning, with two down, Prioste'
on third and OJiama on second, Mitsu
grounded to- Hoopii, who fumbled, the
ball being recovered by Bun Hee.
Prioste had already scored and Ohama,
rounding third, seeing that Soong's
glove had been accidently knocked off
his hand by Prioste, calculated that
with the catcher unprepared to take a
throw, hero was :. grand chance to
score and put Llhuo into the lead. Bun
Hee threw on a line to Soong without
seeing that the latter had no glove in
his hand, but hero was where Soong
made the most spectacular play of the
day by catching Bun's swift throw
without flinching, with his bare hands,
and tagged Ohama for the third out.
For Lihue, Doi starred with four
hits, and Tai with a one-handed catch
in tho Oth which killed Makees rally.
The brightest star for Lihue, however,
was Okuda, who although not as ef
fective as his oponcnt, pitched the best
game of his career, holding the Makees
scoreless for fourteen consecutive in
nings. His best piece of work, how
ever, was not in the box, but at the
plate in the 7th inning. With Tai on
third, tho squeeze play was attempted
and tho runner was nearly at the plate
when dummings threw the ball back
of Okuda who was'batting. Realizing
that Tai would be out if ho did not
touch tho ball, Okuda turned his bat
backwards and bunted a fair ground
er. His quick wit saved a defeat for
Lihue right there, as nine out of ten
batters would not oven have attempted
to bunt a ball thrown behind their
Lihue had a chance to win in the
11th when Tai got on third on a walk
and two grounders, but was foolishly
caught napping with Okuda at bat.
Another opportunity came in the 15th,
but Perreira fanned with a runner on
The Makees had a splendid chance
to win in the 13th when K. Hee opened
with a single to left. Bun Heo sacri
ficed and the runner went to third
when Prlosto and Bun Hee got mixed
up at first. Tho Makee supporters
were squeezing, but were disappointed,
as Hoopii fanned and Tsunehiro pop
ped to Tai.
Opportunity again knocked at the
door of the Makees in the fifteenth.
King flies to center, but K. Hoe was
safe and advanced to second on Tai's
wild throw to Prioste. Bun Heo sing
led cleanly to right and K. Hee was
caught at the plate. After fouling off
a couple, Hoopii hit a grounder which
landed inside tho foul line and bounce'd
directly over third base, but which
Tai refused to field thinking the ball
foul. Bun came home on tho hit, but
after hesitating a moment, Umpire
Chillingworth called tho hit a foul in
spite of tho fact that all those who had
a clear view of tho ball declared it

OUTPLflYSTHEflRWYi n nr. nmreoc
Individual brilliance, bettor horses
and machine-like team work com
bined to nid the Kauai Polo club over
whelm tho All-Army team by n score
of 23 to 1 at Kapiolani park Wednes
day, says tho Star-Bulletin. Tho game
was tho first of the inter-Island polo
tourney of 1020.
At no time was there tho slightest
doubt of the Kauai superiority. From
the first scrimmage, when tho ball
came out of the ruck toward tho goal
defended by Army, and passed through
an instant later, the red shlrtcd riders
had things their own way.
But Army did not weaken. Despite
the newness of their mounts, the su
perior training of their opponents, and
several misfortunes which cost them
goals by tho narrowest margins, tho
Army quartet fought its hardest
Honolulu society was on hand in
full feather. Both grandstand and blea
chers, lately moved closer t.o the sceno
of tho play, were crowded to capacity.
Feminine waists of pink, white, blue
and green found fitting 'chromatic ac
companiment in the masculine white
and khaki uniforms and tho variously
colored hot weather suits.
Ahead and to the left sat the 17th
Cavalry band, a circle of brown
against the turf. With Diamond Head
as a background across the field, more
than 50 automobiles were lined up.
Each was filled witli spectators no
loss enthusiastic than those in the
stands, who honked horns wildly at
each well driven goal.
Have Odd Man
From the opening of the game Kauai
took and kept charge of the ball. Pass
ing from man to man or driving far
down the field with a single mallet
stroke, the red and white team kept
perfect control of the play.
An uncanny faculty for having a man
on hand at each stragetic point was
marked in the work of the Kauai ag
gregation. Did the ball emerge front,
back or sideways from a scrimmage,
there was always a Kauai horse wait
ing to dash after the pellet instantly.
By such teamwork the visitors gave
the impression of having at least two
more men in tho field than did the
Important in this 'connection was
was the defense work of tho Garden Is
landers. While keeping always in po
sition to go after the ball at any mo
ment, tho Kauai men showed great
ability in fending off the attempts of
their opponents to get into the play.
Time after time J. Malina, Kauai's
husky kept ono or more Army men out
of play by careful placement of his
pony while he himself was free to
swing his mallet at will.
Johnny on the Spot
And the swings of Malina contribut
ed much to the success of his team. In

i Tho annual meeting of the Kauai
' Chamber of Commerce was hold at
Llhuo on Thursday with n representa
tive attendance of goodly numbers. It
was noticeable that there was a good
turn out from the Kapaa Homestead
region, In splto of inclement weather
nnd bad roads.
After tho usual preliminaries tho
President called for reports. The
Treasurer submitted his annual report
showing receipts $755.00. Expendi
tures $35C.S4, balance In hand $GS4.49
together with $1G7.C0 in War Savings
Tho commlttc on nominations pre
sented their slato as follows:
Judge Dickey the New President
L. A. Dickey, president; K. C. Hop
per, vice-president; J. M. Lydgato,
secretary; J. I. Silva, treasurer; K. C.
The report was accepted nnd the
slate was adopted as It stood.
The president elect was conducted
to the chair and tho retiring president
made a brief review of tho year, point
ing out .the very substantial accomp
lishments that had been made, and
thanking the members for their cord
ial support of his administration.
Review of the Year
Under tho former head he instanced
the satisfactory outcome of years of
effort in connection with Puukapele
park. When it seemed to be practi
cally a dead issue, as the result of an
adverse report from tho sanitary ex
perts, the Chamber secured tho per
sonal advent of the Governor and his
party, and convinced them that tho
park scheme wa3 allright, and worthy
of tho strongest official support. The i
result was that in a few weeks tho
final action was taken and the park
secured to Kauai beyond recall.
Another accomplishment of the
year has been tho rounding up of the
Nawiliwili harbor project to the point
where the federal authorities admit
that we have complied with tho re
quirements in regard to railway con
nections, etc., and all that remains
now to be done, is the payment of the
5200,000 by the Territory, in order to
secure the Federal appropriations and
the execution of the work.
Tho attendance, and interest in the
meetings had bee.i very good during
the period, and ho felt th.it it had
teen a very su cssful and satisfact
Mr. Lydgate moved a rising vote of
appreciation and thanks to the retir
ing president for the excellent service
which he had rendered the chamber.
This was unanimously carried.
Progress at Puukapele
Mr. Brandt begged to report progress
on the Puukapele road and water
works. Tho road Is in much better
shape than it was at this time last
year, notwithstanding tho fact that
little or no work has been done on It.
The water-works enterprise is ap
proaching completion. The pipe lino
tunnel is all finished but about 30 feet
Some hard rock was struck which
caused a good deal of delay. The pipe
has been laid, and only this small gap
remains to be filled. Being second
hand pipe, some leaks have develop
ed, but these have been fixed up. It
will deliver a good stream of water
more than adequate for all park pur
poses for a long time to come.
Hurry Relocation Thru Cane
Mr. Cheatham Inquired as to chang
es, or relocations of the road to be
made through the cano belt at the low
er end. It seemed very important
that any change of location should be
made as soon as possible. After the
cane had pretty well grown up, it
would be much more difficult to locate
the rood way. and naturally the planU
tion would object to surrender a
stretch of cano that wag well along,
and on which they had spent a good
deal of money.
Mr. Brandt replied that this was
quite true that tho new location
shouldi bo established as soon as pos
sible, but. that the County engineer
was so very busy that he simply hand
not ben able to do it.
No Engineer Available
Mr. Cheatham said that ho under
stood from Mr. Middleton that he had
written tho Department of Public
Works, notifying them of his inability
to attend to this matter, and request
ing them to send down a man to his
assistance. But they had no one at
present that they could send, and held
out no prospect of anyone in sight. He
wondered if it might not bo possible
to render them local assistance to help
out in tho matter, and if need lie, ap
propriate tho necessary funds to do
Much Preliminary Work
Mr. Moragne said that it was not at
all a question of money. That would
he part of the cost of building the
road, and any work of that kind would
be paid for out of the appropriation.
It was a Territorial job, not a County
one, and was being conducted on dif
ferent lines with much more exacting
conditions. Before a beginning could
ho made on tho actual construction
work, it had to he most caivfully and
exactly laid out, and staked out, with
detail plans and estimates made, and
the whole thing tied up to Government
trig stations, etc., all of whicli meant
a lot of work and took a lot of time.
There was, lie said, about a mile of the
section in the cane belt, and lie agreed
that it ought to bo laid out just as soon
Hawaii Number of the Geographic
W. H. Rice, Jr., spoke of tho advent
of Gilbert Grosvenor, editor in chief of
tho National Geographic Magazine, a3
one of importance to tho Island.
Though ho was hero only n couple of
days ho was much impressed with tho
beauty of tho Island. The March num
ber of tho magazine is to lie devoted
to Hawaii, and any ono having fine
pictures of Island scenery would do
well to furnish some of them for this
Mr. Lydgate read a letter from tho
Commissioner of Public Lands advis
ing him that the Governor was ready
to set aside certain lands requested for
the purpose of n pari: to bo known as
Poliahu Park, provided tho necessary
notes of survey were furnished. Mr.
Lydgato explained that as this tract
was a long, Irregular strip, largely
wooded palis, it would bo rather a dif
ficult and expensive matter to make
the necessary surveys. Howovor, as
ho was very much interested in this
park scheme, he would undertake to
make the survey for $100. Because
of having done a good deal of work In
connection with it already, ho could do
it much more readily than anyone else.
He hoped that tho Chamber would sco
its way clear to appropriating this
amount for this purpose.
Valuable Scenic Asset
Wm. Henry Rice moved that $100 bej
appropriated from money in tho treas
ury, and turned over to Mr. Lydgato
for this purpose. Carried.
Mr. Broadbent spoke in tho highest
terms of pralso of tho natural beauties
of this park. Someday it would he a
wonderful asset to tho Island. He in
quired in regard to tho feasibility of
