Filipinos To Hold

The Filipino National Asso

vention at Lihue from the 20th
to 23rd of this mouth at which
representatives and delegates
from all the other islands will be
The purpose of the convention
is to reconstruct and reorganize
the whole association, and to
bring it into closer relationship
witli the plantation interests.
Vincente Boiser, of Lihue, vice-
president of the association and
acting head in the absence of its
president, states that during the
late strike on Oahu, the impress
ion prevailed that the association
was actively engaged in aiding
the strikers. Mr. Boiser states
that this was not true, and that
it is the earnest desire of the
association that all misunder
standings can be corrected and
i.fat the planters and members of
the association will be brought
into closer touch with each other.
"It is the purpose of this organi
zation to help the planters iu all
ways, and to encourage the labor
ers to perform their duties well
und to live up to their contracts."
: Kapaa Notes
Among the spectators at the
game on Sunday was Mr. James
Spalding and Mr. Hermann Wol
ters, president and manager of
the Makee Sugar Co. We no
ticed their happy expressions
when the Makees went into the
lead, but we noted particularly
Mr. Woltcr's broad smile when
the last double play ended the
game, for the reason that we also
had noticed his expression last
year when we lost a game to Li
hue, but you know, human nature
is the same no matter where you
Tilly's smoke, of which the Ma-
kee's had several samples at El
eele last year, seems to be gone.
ne used almost all slow balls and
was not effective and rather
steady. It seemed an effort for
him to throw and rumors have it
that a sore arm was the cause.
Four double plays featured
Sundav's proceedings, three being
pulled off by the winners and one
by the losers. Poor coaching in
the first inning accounted for one
when Watase, who was on first,
failed to be informed that his
brother George had popped a fly
to Cummings instead of a ground
er, in an attempt to sacrifice.
But for some grandstand stuff
by Cummings in the (ith, the Ma
kees would have played an error
less game, the first in many
moons, in tins inning, alter two
down, George Watase hit a
grounder to Cummings, who
cnught the ball before the runner
was ten feet from the plate, wnit-l
ed at his leisure until lie had near
ly reached first and then threw
to Rodrigues. It was a perfect
throw but too late and the scorer
had no alternative but to score
an error. Errorless games are
rare birds on Kauai, and it's a
pity the clean record should be
marred by such a slip-up.
Tilly almost suffered the fate
of having two home runs scored
off his delivery in the first inning
in as many games against the Ma
kees. Last year, King "Babe
Ruthed" the first ball pitched by
Tilly at McBryde and in the first
inning on Sunday, Tsunehiro's
drive was good for only three
bases due to a flivver in left field
which kept the ball from going
over the bank and into the swamp
for a sure home run.
Mr. Taber, proprietor of the
Kauai Drug Company, promised
the baseball boys a free treat at
his soda fountain on Sunday af
ter the game, win, lose, or draw,
but as the boys won, they took ad
vantage of the opportunity to cel
ebrate in fitting style. We won
der if some of them would have
refused to eat if they had lost.
Mrs. Lee, wife of Lee Wing Kce,
Fourth Series homesteader, died
at her home opposite the Kapaa
school on Saturday afternoon,
after an illness of several months.
She is survived by her husband,
three children, and a father and
brother iu Honolulu. Mrs. Lee
was a Honolulu girl and came to
Kapaa in ISMS with her husband
to live on their homestead lot.
The police, in their efforts to

of clues, but without results un
