and J. Kimball, captaib and nun
agor respectively, of tho artillery
team, ns woll as threo represonta
tivos of tho team from Battory K.
Then followed talk on tho mat
ter of tho number of teams. Harry
Whitnoy, who acted as chairman
of tho meeting, stated that it was of
no ueo for a weak team to bo plac
ed in tbo field. That was oxoctly
tho troublowith last year's season.
It would bo bettor for the batteries
to combine and put a good team in
tho uolu. xuey woulu, in any
event, find tboir hands full taking

battery had already for mod a toam
and that thore were fino players
in its ranks. This could bo soen
by tho game it was proposed
should bo played with tho Kame
hameha team. Ho considered that
Battory K had as much of a claim
us tho other battorios to enter the
leaguo. Tho captain had fitted
them out with uniforms and tbey
wanted to play.
J. O. Carter, Jr., stated that an
arrangement had been made with
the Association whereby tho league
would get fifty per cont of the gate
receipts. Ho movod that of this
fifty por cont, twenty-five goto tho
