THAT DISPUTED GAME.
At the conclusion of tho regular
game Umpire Angus called up the
disputed game of July 5, whioh
has led to so much wrangling. It
was understood .by tho umpire,
tho press and nearly overyono else
that the agreement made by Cap
tains Wilder and Thompson some
time ago in the presence of wit
nesses should stand and that if
the St Louis team failed to score
the game should bo decided a
draw and played off at tho end of
the season. Thompson went to
the bat and struck out, Gleason
followed and mado his baso by
very fast running. Holt was
struck out and Willis was put out
on a hit to second, Gleason beiug
also touched on the way to second.
Then the St. Louis boys started
to go home, when J. O. Carter Jr.,
manager for tho Stars, insisted on
the game being played out, and he
was strenuously backed np by
Captain Wilder and tho Stars
players. Captain Thompson re
fused, holding to tho terms of his
agreement aud a disgraceful
wrangle ensuod. Umpire AngiiB
was appealed to and Anally
decided that the agreement should
stand, to which decision tho Stars
have entered a protest.
Chas J McCarthy, who was in
struraental in Bottling tho differ
ences over tho 5th of July game,
said this niomiuc that Captain
Thompson was right in bis con
struotion of the agreement and
that the St. Louis team having
failed to scoro the game should
be declared a draw according to
W. C. Wilder Jr., who is the
manager of tho Baseball Associa
tion, was asked on Saturday
morning by a Bulletin reporter,
as to the agreement. He said
then, as he understood the ar
rangement, that only tho half in
nings would bo plnyed. He
thought both captains wero wrong
in mukiug tho agreement, as the
gamo should have been played
out, but, as they had made it, it
should certainly stand.
Manager Carter's protest is
based ou the rulos, by which the
manager nloiio has authority to
mako agreements for his club.
Ho, however, certainly know of
tho agrt'omt'iit and should Imvo
made his objections buforo if ho
wished tho gamo continued.

COLLECTING INCOME TAX

nyor Cnmr In rlnir.,
It does not appear to be gener
ally known that Japau has ro
ceutly passed a law requiring a
tax to be paid on incomes, but
such iB tho case and the Jupaneso
officials aro having all sorts of
difficulties in their efforts to col
lect it. Some of tho operations of
the tax collectors aro of such an
arbitrary and unusual procedure
as to lead to considerable trouble,
and tho attempt to collect an in
come tax is one of the many
sources of discontent whioh may
soon lead to the downfall of the
present Japanese Ministry.
Japanese tax officials cau give
Collnntor Shaw a few pointers. In
the first placo they start out with
the general proposition that tax
payers invariably make falso" re
turns. They probably have
abundant roasons to help them in
arriving at such a conclusion, but
their methods of obtaining correct
returns would certainly rosult in
profit to the Hawaiian treasury
were they introduced here.
Taktt the district of JNugoya fur
an example of oilier Japanese dis
tricts. There the statements of
iucomo supplied by the taxpnytrs
have all beon rojected by tho ofli
ciils as fulso. The officials claim
the amounts should be tlueo to
teu times as great us stated by
tho taxpayers. MerohitnU who
dure to protest are confined in a
dark room aud told to think the
matter over carefully. Some have
beon shut up for twenty four hours.
One merchant who made out his
stiitoment of wealth at 400,000
you was in this way compelled to
change it ton million yon. Another
was ordered peremptorily to in
aro mo his stntotneut from 40UO to
30,000 yen. The merchants are
intensely indignant at theso pro
ceedings and have petitioned the
Government to stop them.

Tho 8uggMion of Hawaii to
Japan that their differences bo
submitted to arbitration has not
assumed definite shape according
to a Washington dispatch to Tho
Call under date of July 22. Tho
matter hoe nof progressed further
than a moro suggestion. No de
tails wero contained in tho pro
posal. Japan has oxpresBcd her
willingness, through the official,
press, to meet Hawaii half woj,
but so far sb is known hero no
official answer has been eont.
Information has been recoived
at Washington that the Japanese
will take no action until thoy
larn tho details of Hawaii'i pro
posal, and will so inform Hawaii,
giving assurances, however, that
'they will bn glad to consider it
with a prospect of an atnrmativo
decision ns to the definite propos
itions lor relorring tho points of
dispute to an unbiased tribunal.
That iB tho situation at present.
The State Department is manifest
ing great interest in the subject.
It is said on excellent authority
that tho proposal of Hawaii was
made at tho instigation of this
Government. The main question
affecting the situation is the atti
tude of ho Japanese Government
in its protest against tho annexa
tion treaty. Twolvo days ago the
Japanese Minister sont a reply to
Sherman concerning tho protest,
but no answer has been returned
by tho Statn Department. It was
said at the State Department to
day that it is among the probabi
lities that tho dealing of tho
United States and Japan on the
subject would bo transferred to
1'okio, whoro Minister Buok will
act in behalf of this Govumment.
Why this transfer is contemplated
it was not explained.
