W. C. Acht will give for n base ball
park near the railroad track as much
gi oiuid ns the baseball men may want.
His proposition Is to furnish this
giuuud nt half price. He wilt alter the
road plans of the tinct hi order to have
11 park of suitable scope and shape for
baso ball. The suggestion was made
to Mr. Achl by a prominent lawyer and
admirer of the national game this
morning. The owner of the Kapiolani
tract nt once said that he could not
afford to give the whole thing himself.
"I will, however, give the ground
needed nt half price. If the baseball
men will tnke up subscriptions for their
part. 1 will lnnko a deed for two rfcres
I at the price of one. At this, I will lose
H& cents per square foot, but I am will
ing to do It If the nthletle boys want n
base ball ground. I will make the prop-
osltlon for ns large or small a tract as
they may want. If they find It difficult
to rnlso the amount necessary, nt once,
I will make the deal anyhow, on part
paymerfts. or It might be put through
In some form of lease. I will give this
ground either close to the railroad or
adjoining King street near the tramway
line. I leave It to the base ball men
The project will cost some money,
but the basis on which the lovers of
baseball may figure aro very favorable.
The railroad nnd street car lino should
contribute liberally to the fund as they
would reap benefits of n substantial
character. Tho lecelpts from games
ought to be n guarantee against a por
tion of the cost of the enterprise. The
opportunity for the appearance of a
base ball magnate is here.
