Budgct of Boating.
Last Saturday's ball game va9 a
practical illustration of tlio old say
ing about the big man in a small
town being a 9mall person in a city.
The Crescents wei e the acknowledged
champions in the Amateur1 league
and their good playing with boys in
their class led their friends to believe
they would make n good showing in
the senior league.
Some of thu older ball players were
of the same opinion while others in
the senior class opposed their admis
sion on the ground that, as they
could not cope with the more experi
enced players on the diamond, they
could not be considered as a drawing
card. Indeed it was under consider
ation that their remaining in the
league was conditional upon their not
being defeated in all of the threo
Qrst games. This rule, I understand,
is not to be enforced, so that, unless
the Crescent nine volunteer to with
draw they will uot be forced out of
With but two or three exceptions
the kids' nine is decidedly a weak
one ; they do not seem to work jn
that harmony born of louger experi
ence and a pcifect knowledge of the
rules governing the game. They
sometimes showed a disposition to
kick at the umpire's decision and to
question that autocrat's right to say
"safe" when they distinctly wished
it otherwise. Not only are such ob-i
jections against all rules of baseball
decorum, but they are embarrassing
to the players friends in the grand
stand. If the decisions do not ap
paiently fit the case the player must
grin nnd bear it; the time to object
is when they go on the Held in a new
game ; then insist upon a change of
Captain Angus began the game
well, but evinced a species of ''stage
fright" discernible in any person who
appears for the first time in the role
of semi-professional ball twirler. He
seemed to he under the impiession
tiiat the oftcner he tossed the ball the
belter. And so it was for the Hawaii
team, because Angus soon gave out.
He sacrificed the bases through his
desire to pitch the ball ; when he
gave t)ie bases hjs attention lo usu
ally scored a point and. he pould have
scored more. Angus should remem
ber that the game will wait on
him, if he wants to get a moment's
resting this wuy.
This was Angus' fault at the last
game but lie also had a misfortune.
Literally speaking, he left a sick bed
to go and play ball and this fact may
account for his breaking down so
early. I am told he has been con
lined to his room since Saturday, so
that it is not probable that he will
pitch all of the game to-morrow.
Percy Lishman may relieve him or
pitch the first part of the game.
If soiling one's clothes is evidence
of good playing, Willie Wilder did
well he n, least workci hard and in
two instances distinguished himself
Chris Holt won considerable applause
by taking two running fly balls;
catching one that belopged to short
slop, but in Holt's hands the ball was
As was to be expected the plum for
really good playing fell to Soper at
Hi st. Whether hejias studied Hay
Wodehouse and Mahuka during last
season "deponent saith not," but his
playing is a combination of the good
qualities of both. Blest witk a good
height ho is anatomically adapted to
the position and when he reaches for
a ball (and he reaches for every one
coming his way), he holds on to it
with a tenacity that is not always
seen outside the piofessioual ranks.
Soper can, and does, play good ball.
In this respect he differs from other
mcmbeis in the club.
The Crescents must understand
that the public will not pay an ad
mission fee to witness repeated bad
games. They must also understand
that, while they arc not in the strict
sense professionals, thoy are playing
for a trophy and a proportion of the
gate receipts, and that people who
attend the games do so with the ex
pectation of seeing the play divided.
These remarks apply to the older
nines as well.
Less interest was taken in games
last year in which the Hawaiis took
part than in any of the others. To
be defeated by nine as weak players
as the Hawaii team last Saturday,
even though the first part of the
game was well played, augurs badly
for the boys to-morrow.
As in everything else so it is in
baseball. Without practice during
the week you cannot expect to play
good ball on Saturday, Every mem
ber of a nine owes a duty to each in
dividual who pays an admission to
the grounds and, unless the four
captains can have greater control
over their men than it is believed
they now have, the debt will pile up
so high that it will take several sea
sons of monstrous fine playing to
liquidate it, Let tlio captains ap
point days for practice and insist
upon tlio men going out.
WillU-sdlBllDBdiBudu Wlilsolf by A
hiihibor bi very bad play's and unless
ho devotes some time during tlio
week to Ihfdwing bases it cannot be
expected that he will improve.
What has been said in geucral of
the Crescents applies as well to the
Hawaiis. First in tlio older of bad
players comos Morris at 2d base, for
it is a question if worse playing by a
man who can piny ball woll has ever
been seen on the diamond. Palmer
Woods disappointed most of his
frieuds by his constant wild thiows.
More, a great deal moro was expect
ed of him after the good showing ho
made last season. Prince "Cupid"
surprised his most ardent admirers,
and should lie continue during the
season as lie began theic is no ques
tion that lie will lead the players in
his nine. Thompson played in his
usual good form and D.in, for a boy
who lias scarcely had a ball in his
hand since the closing g vine last year,
deserves a great deal of credit.
In both games this year considera
ble dissatisfaction has been exoicssed
at a number of decisions made by
umpire Wall. If this feeling con
tinues tlio players will lose heart.
Mr. Wall's uoncientiousness is not
for a moment questioned, but when
the wione decisions nro made so fre
quently it is time to look around for
the cause and a remedy. Thd posi
tion is a thankless one at any time,
and I have no doubt that the umpire
feels that he is entirely on the sido
of the players and the public; an
opinion which we both have a right
On the Coast it often happens that,
where two men umpire the game,
they change positions at the end of
each innings. This might lelieve
Mr. Wall of that tired feeling and
assist him in rendering decisions that
would not be questioned, Failing
in this suppose the clubs try one
Having dealt with the player9 and
the umpires it would be unjust if the
managers of the grounds were passed
without notice. All of last season
ladies in the grand stand sat in fear
of being knocked with a foul ball.
Several times a ball came in their
midst, but I believe they were stop
ped before any injury was done.
This year such good luck has not been
the case, for in the first game a lady
was struck in the breast by a ball
from a bat in the hands of one of the
students. A suggestion was made
to the manager to put back the wire
screen that was in position during
the first games last year, and which
was removed on account of the effect
it had upon the eyes ; an objection
encountered on every well-icgulated
ground in the United States and
which is readily overcome after one
or two games. Rath'er than put b.ick
hc screen the management thought
best to "suggest" changing the posi
tion of the chairs set apart for ladies,
placing them where the benches now
are and putting the benches in the
position occupied by the chairs.
This change remains a "sugges
tion" and will continue so until some
one is seriously injured or ladies
cease attending the games through
fear of having an eye blackened or
nose broken. Tjie mauageniont of
the grounds must realise that it has
certain responsibilities which cannot
be overlooked. This is one of them.
In boating circles matters are ex
ceedingly quiet. The members of
the boat clubs have, as yet, taken no
decisive steps in the matter of chal
lenges, but it is quite probablfc some
tiling definite will develop among the
junior oarsmen next week. Theie is
good material in the membership and
there seems to be no good icasoii
why races should not occur oftener
than on soch set days as July 4th
and the other public holidays. The
more frequent the races the more
practice the hoys will get and better
health and better oarsmpn will follow
in close order.
As noticed in yesterday's impres
sion of this paper the ariival of the
new yacht by Eyfe of Fairleigh has
awakened considerable interest in
yachting circles. We have already
some very fast yachts in the haibor
and if the new one, imported for the
purpose, Call outsail those built by
Mr, Sorenson it will do that which
up to this time has not been done.
We know of other yachts being im
ported and which were to beat eveiy
thing in sight and yet Mr. Sorensou's
reputation as a successful racing
boat builder has not been impaiied.
The new craft is cutter rigged and
is built after Fyfe'a best model. She
cost about 550 landed here and is
owned by a syndicate of which Judge
Dole, W. W. Hall and Tom May
ate the leading spirits. She was built
upon order of Messrs. Dole and May.
