THE BASE BALL SEASON,
TIlKEi: CLUUS ENLIMTKD AM) A
(; roll ml NrrtlK Attention illxn llio
Iluys Cn von ritgeniriil Hint
to .1SuiinKM I'llln.
Tho first practice of tho season
was had yesterday afternoon at
tho ball park, whon mombors of
tho now Star club for this year
started to got into form to wipe
tho earth up with every other club
in tho city. Thoro is no doubt
that this year's games will bo far
superior to those of last year.
Throo clubs aro already formed
tho Stars, lvnmohnmohas and
Alumni, and while wo aro about
it why not havo a four-club looguor
Thoro is plenty bf now material
in town that will play ball, in fact
a fourth club is partly formed, on
ly lacking a pitcher. Tho Stars
havo Jack Low, "Wood, aud Lion
ol Hart. If thoy could bo induc
ed to rolenso ono of these men tho
fourth club would bo assured.
This would add to tho intorost of
tho gatno, ae tho now players aro
all young business men aud many
of thom very good ball players.
Another thing, tho grounds aro
in very bad shape for practice and
should bo attended to at once.
Thoy need a good wotting down
and tho heavy roller should bo
used. Thoro aro a fow baso ball
enthusiasts who got up teams each
year and play themselves, practic
ing on an average thrco nights a
week that tho Honolulu public
may bo amused on baturday after
noon. Very often these fow
leadors havo much difficulty
in inducing players to ougago
for tho'Bcason'B play, and tho loast
tho Association can do is to put
tho grounds in porfoct ordor.
Givo tho boys eucouragomont.
Baso ball is popular in Honolulu,
but if tho spectators aro compolled
to sit ten or fifteen minutes after
tho gamo is supposed to bo called,
to wait for a tardy umpire or
something else, it soon becomes
lnonotonousnnd pooplo will not go.
Another thing, Manager Pain
ought to issuo passes to playois,
said passes to bo used only on tho
day of gamo. Many of tho boys
aro out of pocket each year for
diiforont things, and as tho street
car company makes considerable
money on tho games, it is no moro
than right that it should mako
concessions. Tho writer does
not wish to run Mr. Pain's busi
ness, but merely offors tho above
as a suggestion.
Tho porson nol of tho teams this
year will bo unusually strong aud
tho boys will certainly put up a
very stiff sot of gamos, and it is to
bo hoped that all potty joalousy
will bo laid aside and tho games
played for sport only.

In tho ertnilv suit of Tlmlnluli

Company, the Supromo Court has
rondered a decision, written by
Chief Justice Judd. It camo up
on ant appeal of defendant from
Circuit Judge Perry, ovor-ruliug
a domurrer to tho bill. Tho pray
er of tho bill was to enjoin defen
dant from paying dividends
claimed by plaintiff into a bank.
Tho Supromo Court sustains the
demurrer on tho ground that
plaintiff has a plain, adequate
and comploto remedy at law. The
bill not alleging that equity
should tako jurisdiction to avoid a
multiplicity of suits, tho Court
does not consider tho question.
