LIHUE, KAUAI, TERRITORY OF HAWAII, TUESDAY, OCTOBER 5. 1920
SUBSCRIPTION RATES, $2.50 PER YEAR 5 CENTS PER COPY
With the 1920 championship of KnuV
'at at stake the Llhue team, who had a
chance to go into a Ho with the Makees
by winning last Sunday's game, were
defeated by tho Maltees at Kapaa by
the score of 7-2. The Makees are now
tho 1920 champions of Kauai, a title
whcih they have never had the honor
of possessing since tho league started
The game drew the largest crowd
that ever was present at a baseball
game in Kapaa, tho outfield being en
tirely surrounded by automobiles, some
autoists oven parking their machines
inside tho right field foul line, this
field already being small enough with
out any obstructions, Jfortunatoly no
balls were hit to right field, but one
can easily imagine what would have
happened in such an important game,
had a fly been hit to right field with
two down and tho winning or tleing
run on third.
Lihuo lost the game in the initial
frame because they started Tai, who
showed some ability as, a pitcher
against McBrydo the Sunday previous
and who the Lihuo boys thought would
do better than Okuda. Tai only lasted
a third of an inning, seven runs boing
scored before he was yanked.
King, first man up was oaked in
the back and immediately stole second
Kenneth Hee grounded to Mitsu, but
Doi dropped tho throw for a forccout
at third, Hee going to second on the
next pitch. Bun Hee grounded in front
of the plate, but Ohama threw away
the ball and the bell'rung twice, Bun
going to third. Tsunhelro singled and
Bun tallied. After Tsunehiro had stoje
second and had gone to third when
Mitsu kicked the ball away, Soong
grounded to Okuda, but Priosto lot the
ball get away, and another run came
in. Rodrigues sacrificed, but Tai
threw tho ball over Prloste's head
Soong going to third and Rodrigues
to second. Arcia popped to Okuda for
tho first out and then Tai made the
situation worse by walking Shirai, fill
ing tho bases with only ono down
Cummings, with two strikes on him,
depopulated the bases of their occu
pants by doubling to right center, he,
himself going to third on tho throw in
Lihue now lost faith in Tai and
Okuda was called from second to take
up the burden. King was again soaked
in the ribs for the second in the same
inning, but K. Hee filed to left and Bun
went out to Prloste unassisted, thus
ending a disastrous inning for Lihue.
Two hit batsmen, five errors, a double
and a single accounted for the damage,
and with it the championship for 1920.
Lihue saved herself from a shutout
in tho fifth by scoring two runs on an
overthrow by Cummings. Prioste
staited the inning and Cummings tried
to imitate Carl Mays by beanlng him
the ball lauding squarely on the bat
ter's head and bounding back to the
pitcher. Tho blow almost knocked the
cover off the ball. Ohama grounded
to Bun Hee who lost an easy chance
for a doublo play, Priosto landing on
third and Ohama on second. Prioste
then "ivoried" Lihue out of a possible
run by getting caught between third
and home. Mitsu walked and together
with Ohama, a doublo steal was suc
cessfully pulled off, Texeira fanned
and the chances of a score for Lihue
seemed very slim. On a short passed
ball Ohama tried to como homo and
was caught between the plato and
third, but Cummings threw wild to
third and Lihuo tallied twice.
Llhue had another splendid oppor
tunity to gain on their opponents in the
sixth, but a fast double play saved the
day. Doi singled and Fernandez got
an Infield single. Perrelra sacrificed,
but Doi was caught at tho plate trying
to score from second. Okuda went
out, Bun Hee to Rodrigues on a hot
grounder through the box, which Cum
mings could not hold. After this in
ning, Lihuo had no chanco to score.
Outside of the first inning, tho
Makees had no chance either, as Okuda
who was thought to be a "has been"
SIDE LIGHTS ON -THE
Good Votes Lost
There were many good votes lost In
the primary election on Saturday be-
causo of Ignorant or careless marking
of the ballotts.
Sixteen of the Republican ballots in
Lihuo were vitiated by carrying the
cross over into, the Democratic column
at tho extreme right of the ballot.
In Kapaa there were fourteen cast out
for the same reason and In other pre
cincts the same thing happened in a
good many cases.
This fatal mistake is charged up
against the women voters, who are
novices at the game, and some of them
pretty ignorant in clerical matters.
They will know better next time.
Nllhau Heard from Promptly
As a general thing the Kauai elect'
ions hang in the balance for days
awaiting for the returns 'from Nllhau.
This time we had them next morning.
County Clerk Kaneakua inquired as
to when the returns from Nllhau
would bo availablo in the ordinary
course of things, and found that there
was no assurance of getting them for
a week or more. This was too slow
for theso modern days, so arrange
ments wore made for a special power
sampan- to go over and secure the
returns, and they wore on hand at
daylight Sunday morning.
Charge of Undue Discrimination
At Knpaa some little heat was de
veloped by tho charge on the part of
one of the candidates that tho Ha
waiians were voting along color lines
and discriminating unfairly against
tho Portuguese. This is a new aspect
of the race issue, and is said to be
without foundation. The popular man
even though a Portuguese, will get the
votes witness the "Koike Onioni."
How It Went In Kawaihau
Election returns in the Kawaihau
district showed that Werner for rep
resentative, polled the highest number
of votes, followed by Kuhio for dele
gate, and Hoopil for representative
The final result was as follows: Dele
gate: Kuhiol73, McCandless 107; Sen
ator: Kuudsen 130, Coney 117, Hur
ley G4, Kealoha 31; Representatives:
Wcmcr 188 Hoonii 15G. Kaalm 135.
Cori-oia 312, Aguiar 108, Ekekola 100
Johonnot 95, HoopaleG7, W. A. Fer
nandez 61, Kclllnoi 58, Hayselden 4G,
Cunningham 40, M. Fernandes 29,
Kaiawe 24, Heniiquts 22, Lucas 12.
A great surprise was the strength of
Hoopil who was expected to be much
stronger elsewhere than in Kawaihau,
and Werner, who was not expected to
be ona 'of those to lead the field. Knud-
sen beat Coney in Kawaihau as ex
pected, but only by tho narrow margin
of 13 votes. Tho two ran neck and neck
as the counting progressed on Satur
day evening, and it was only the "last
fifty votes that gave Knudsen the edge
on his opponent.
Prince Kuhio, and possibly John
Wise, will arrive on Kauai Friday
next and will make a tour of tho Is
land. His program will be as follows:
Kekaha, Friday, 4:30 p. m.
Waimea, Friday evening.
Hnnapope, Saturday about noon.
Kalaheo, Saturday 4 p. m.
Koloa Saturday 7 p. m.
Kapaa, Sunday 3:30 p. m.
Wainlha and Haena, Monday fore
noon. llanaloi, Monday afternoon.
KUauca, Monday 4:30 p. in.
Lihue probably Tuesday.
CUMMINGS CANNOT .MEET REGO
Jonah Cummings, Makeo's star pitch
er, who, it was reported to a repre
sentative of tho Garden Island, would
challenge tho winner of tho Rego-San-
zan wrestling bout, announces that he
made no such statement. Cummings
says he would be willing to meet Rcgo
in an exhibition bout providing It
would not endanger his amateur stand
As Rego Is a professional wrestler,
Cummings is absolutely right In de
clining to meet him under any con
ditions, as ho would undoubtedly be
barred from competing In amateur
sports in future.

PROWLERS ARE ABOUT AGAIN
One of the teachers' cottages, of
Lihuo school was broken into last
Saturday night by an inquisitive burg
lar, who, however, didn't seem to find
anything to suit Ills fancy. Ho got in
by cutting out a screen window at the
back. Tho teachers are surprised at
tho very poor Judgment shown by the
burglars. "Why don't they go where
they can get something!"

after that memorable sixteen inning
game, so far as his pitching ability
was concerned, was in raro form and
only ono Makeo player reached third
during tho seven and two-thirds in
nings ho occupied tho mound. Ono can
well draw his own conclusions as to
what might have happened had Lihue
had enough faith in Okuda to start
him in the box instead of Tai, who was
an unknown quantity. Only three
hits wero secured off his delivery and
no passes were issued. As Cummings
was also in trim, allowing only throo
hits, none of which resulted in runs,
and issued only two passes the game
might have been another extra inning
H. F. Knudsen well known on Kau
ai was married to Miss C. A. Webster
at Wailuku, Sept. 25, at tho parsonage
of the union church by Rev. W. C.
This is the natural consummation
of a romance which began here at
Lihue, where Miss Webster was teach
ing last year. Tho wedding took place
somewhat sooner than originally In
tended as Miss Webster did not in
tend' to accept a position on Maul.
She finally did so however and Mr.
Knudsen being located there, the
more immediate outcome was quite
natural and usual. ,
