Llhue 17, Kllauea 16 Ten Innings.
After ton innings of about tlio rag
gcdcst baseball over staged on this
fair lslo of ours, Lihue managed to
nose out Kllauea last Sunday, 17 to 16.
It was a great game for the children
present, who thoroughly enjoyed see
ing the batters knock the ball all over
the territory and tho runners chasing
around the bases in a continuous
string. Yes, the children had a great
day at tho Lihue ball park Sunday.
Both teams had three batters knock
od out of tho box. Thoy would have
used more if they had had them.
Bob Okuda, who has pitched stellar
ball up to Sunday before last, and has
been tho backbone of the Llhue team,
showed conclusively that his arm is
gone. His sixteen inning grind at
Kapaa three weeks ago is undoubtedly
responsible for this. He la still a great
little man though at second and with
th stick getting one single and
two triples in this game.
Kllauea scored five runs off Okuda
in the first inning and two more in
the fourth. In tho sixth he gave up
and Walter Schumacher was given a
trial. Schumacher retired the visitors
with three men up as his introduction
to the public, but In tho seventh and
eighth Kllauea hammered him for
three in each. He then gave way for
Perreira, who, though he has a crip
? Vied hand, had to be used. Again
Kllauea Bcored three runs in the ninth,
but were shut-out in the tenth.
Curtis pitched six Innings for Kll
auea. in which Lihue, scored ,cleven
runs. He was then yanked and Helen
tried his hand. He stayed two innings
in which Lihue gathered in three and
two. The score was now tied at six
Old war horse Doc Wood' was then
put In to save the day. He retired the
locals without a hit.
Kllauea came up in the tenth with
Janeltli hitting a single, Helen advanc
ing him with 'a sacrifice, but Wood .and
Kino went out on flies while Kelli
grounded to short.
Llhue came up and Okuda landed
his second three baggor for tho day.
Prloste, who heaved a mighty home
run In the second, now stopped up and
landed a swift single between first and
socond and brought Okuda and the
This was Lihue's last game In the
regular series. There is still, the pro
tested game with McBryde to be play
ed and the tie game with Makee.
McBryde 11, Makawell 2
McBryde won from Makawell by a
score of eleven to two. It was a good
game up to tho eighth inning, with tb,o
score standing two all. In the eighth
however, Makawell went Into tho air
and didn't come down until McBryde
had scored nine runs.

collision wero Frank TImberlalto, of
Llhue Store, Yoshldo, rent car driver
of Kapaa, and K. Hashimoto, of Kapaia
Garage. Two machines were badly
wrecked In tho collision.
The story as told by Yoshldo was to
the effect that ho was traveling' to
ward Kapaa, with a load of passengers,
and was well on his right side of tho
road In order tol pass a Ford car which
was standing near the curb on the op
posite side of tho road a little further
on when Tlmberlako camo out of the
lumber yard without sounding his
horn just as ho was about to pass that
entranco. He stated that In trying to
avoid Tlmberlako ho was forced to
swerve to the left and before ho could
gain control of his car ho crashed into
the Ford. He said he was traveling
at the rate of about twelve miles per
Timberfake, in explaining his part of
the story, stated that ht sounded his
horn and was coming out of tho ent
rance on the low, when Yoshldo came
by at such a terrific rate of speed that
ho could not control his car after
swerving to avoid Timberlako's car.
The known focts are that Timber-
lake's car hit the right hind fender of
Yoshido's car, and Yoshldo's car
crashed into the Ford belonging to
Hashimoto, completely wrecking it.

hurt, though it is said, some of tho

K. A. A. MEETS AND
Tho called mooting of the Kauai
Athletic Association was held at tho
Llhue armory last Friday evening and
was entirely peaceable and business
like, much to tho surprise of many
present who had expected a display of
fireworks. Each team of the baseball
league was represented by at least
two members.- '
In the absonco of President James
Spalding and Vlco President, II. D.
Wlshard, Secretary A. Q. Marcalllno
occupied tho chair, while G. M. Shak
acted as temporary secretary.
The first matter to occupy tho at
tention of tho ofllcers of tho league
was tho protest of McBrydo against
the decision of umpire M. V. Fernandez
at their game with Lihue at Eleele on
Tho protest was founded on the play
where a McBrydo player at bat having
three strikes called on him tho catch
er dropping tho ball on tho last striko,
and failed to tag the batter or throw
him out at first. Tho batter, after
tho third strike was called on him, re
tired toward the bench and the umpire
called him out. Captain Henderson, of
McBryde, intercepted the batter and
made him go to first, claiming that as
ho had not been tagged he had a per
fect right to run even though he had
retired to the bench. The umpire did
not agree with him and stuck by his
decision that the man was out.
After looking up the various rules
covering this play, tho league officials
sustained tho protest and ruled that
the game be ' played again at Eleolo
after the present series Is finished. Tho
teams are to bo composed of playors
from tho original list.
Tho Lihue protest over McBryde
pitching Tillle at the gamo at Llhue
on August 22nd, was the next matter
given attention. Lihuo contended that
Tlllic was not a bonefido resident of
Kauai, in that ho had not resided on
the Island two weeks after his name
had been sent to the secretary as a
player for McBryde ho having arrived
on Kauai on August 20th, two days
prior to tho gamo in question. ,
Tho league officials sustained tho
protest and awarded tho game to Llhue
by a score of 9 to 0.
Makeo presented a like protest over
their gamo with McBrydo on Septem
ber 5th, In which Tillle pitched. It was
shown that Tillle still had not com
plied with tho residence clause of the
league lawa, In that after the Llhue
game TIlllo had departed for Hono
