8ergcant Barry's Bunch of Ball Play
Fleet Nino Two Game at the League Grounds. Tne First cam will
Be on Saturday and the 8eond on Sunday Next.
It Is to be regretted that the Dia
mond Head Athletic Club has de
cided to eliminate baseball from Its
program for the coming season. The
reason given is that last season tlio
club was a loser to tho extent of
several hundreds of dollars.
Tho team will not solicit any
games with other nines, but if any
matches are offered they may be ac
cepted. An offer from the I'loral
Parade committee, suggesting that
the Diamond Heads enter a lloat In
the parade, was also turned down.
Still another proposition, that tho
club take part of tho Heist place on
the waterfront, that Is at present
occupied by Pete Ilaron, also got It
In the neck.
Things have coraoito a nlco pm
luHonolulu when; before tbe ttlarj.
of the soason, a whole club chucks
up the sponge and says It can not
play ball because- It costs them a lit
tle money. To seo the national
game of America thrown down In
that way certainly astonishes men
who havo seen other countries run
their national games with no
thought of payment, even of ex
penses, to tho young men whd take
part in them. Saturday niter Sat
urday football and cricket teams
Journey miles In trains to play
matches on a ground where there Is
no admission fee whatsoever. Every
man on tho different teams pays hit
own fare, buys his own. uniform.
shoes, and In many cases has own
hats. The club subscriptions just
about pay for tho Implements of the
game nnd postage Btamps.
Here. In Honolulu we have seen
frco games of baseball, and tho old
series (hat used to be played on Aal.t
Park were Just as full of fun nn-1
sport as the games for 'which ad
mission was charged at other
There was a free game of ball at
the league grounds last Sunday, and
does anyone think that the men cf
the two teams did not-play as well
and hard then, for nothing, ns the;;
would havo If there had been, n
"divvy" coming to them at the close
of the game? It Is a pity that tho
gate money proposition ever got a
hold In Honolulu, and It would seem
that tho present tfmo would bo op
portune for changing things and
getting pure amateur sport going
properly. The. "league" grounds
can be secured for next to nothing
nowadays, and the Rapid Transit
Company would make money on the
passengers carried to and from tho
giound. Let ihe boys play ball for
sport's sake. Thousands of ottiur
young follows play games for the
love of 'spCrt. They don't want
other people to buy their Bhoes,
Btocktngs, caps, etc., etc. No, they,
know that their standing as pure
amat'etirs(U'6uld be tarnished; and

'tiOT appear Jo be any chance of t
b'elUg revised ' during tho coming
one. If things are the way they
would appear to be. Judging tnm
tho result of tho meeting of the Dia
mond Heads, it would not worry
people much If the matter Is dropped

If any arrangements had been made.
It is thought that today all the
arrangements' for a series of ball
games will be; made, and that there
will be some exciting games played
between the Jackies and shore nines.
The Guards and combined fleet will
meet on Saturday next, nnd the re
sult should be a fine exhibition of
the national game. .
There will be" boxing matches on
board the Teunessee, and Our old
friend McDonald, who fought
Charlie Helllyl a few months 'ago,
will go up against Quick, who fights
at 136 pounds. This should be a
great go, and ,it Is n pity .that It Is
not being broiight off ashore, where
all the fight fans could have a look

kind of a show will be pulled off

champions, nnd the one botween Ko

Taking It altogether, the Jackies

Will Adams sent a wireless mes
sage, to the manager of the Colum
bia boys who are on board the Ma
kura. No answer was received, al
though Adams had prepaid for It.
Then the local man got mad and
wirelessed the captain of tho Ma
kura asking him to Inquire It the
Columbia boys were going to stay
over here or go on to San Francisco
on the Alameda.
Tho captain replied at onco that
Major Plexoto declined to say what
his plana were. So that is the Btate
of things here, after all the boost
ing that .has been done for tho visit
of the Columbia boys to this city.
It Is a pity that the Makura Is so
late, but It could not be helped, and
now that practically all arrange
ments have been made to take care
of the Columbia boys for even as
long as two weeks, It. Is certainly
hard luck .that they will not be able
to give any of their celebrated per
formances In this city at least, it
looks' like that at time of writing.

sure to be at the big contest on July

The Jeffries-Johnson fight, to bo

will be opeiated under the auspices
of tho Jeffries-Johnson Moving Pic

Yes, that Is.'thejtltle nf tbe company;-
which Is -directly provided for

by Jeffries and Johnsonnnd their man
On that eventful day in the history
of heavyweight pugilism I wrote It
down In lllumlnant notes that the 'se
cret meeting was held' with the pur
pose of arranging for tho cut-up on
the moving pictures and providing for
other details that would make the pic
tures a success. .
I have l( from a direct source that
the original "Article 7,' which was
missing when tho signed agreement
was given out by Hob .Murphy, tho
tempqrary stakeholder, to the news
paper men from all over tho United
States In that Hoboken Hotel on Dec.
3 last, provided for a "divvy" from
tho pictures to go on the basis of
33 1-3 per cent, to Jeffries, the same
to Johnson and tho same to tho pro
"Tho question was raised as to tho
possibility of the pictures falling to
draw," said John J. McKeon, who
represents Rlckard & Oleason in the
East, "and the dread saggestlon was
made to the promoters that the pic
tures would surely .be a punk propo
sition If Mr. Jack Johnson should
hapjien to flatten out Mr. James J.
Jcnrles. Which caused some com
motion, because It was argued that
tho white race the world over wouldn't,
care a, snap of tho fingers to seo the
picture of the triumph of the negro."
Mr. McKeon was speaking earnestly
to mo In tho sporting department of
Ihe World last-night. Ho continued:
"It was pointed out fhat the John
son Kotche! pictures, which bad
been brought hero by Jimmy Coffroth
from San Krauclscn and which pic
tured tho undoing or Ketchel, had
beon coldly received by the general
public, although they were eagerly
scanned by the fancy.
"Ah a matter of fact. H bad been,
learned that fight pictures were not
such extraordinary mouoy getters as
tho public was generally, led, tq beA
Hove. Few of the 'flitliL reU nuiiln
anything llko good tuoMy. I, know,
that Jimmy CoffrotV, wm had, th
Johnson-Ketchol flghf, films, was nej
gotlatlug to dispose' 'of ho English
rights for f 8000, and' when he notified
Johnson or that fact tho negro wjredu
"Hold them. I have an offer' of f If ,4
"When Johnson and Coffroth got to
gether neither the $8000 man nor the
$12,000 man was on the Job. They had
both run out. They wouldn't have
done It It the pictures were a good
proKslt!on, and I don't think $8000
or $12 000 looked too heavy for tho
English rights. But you can see tho
way tho people who make that stuff
their business looked at It. Thnt Is
why Jimmy Coffroth was obliged tn
hike across tho ocean to poddle tbe
pictures as best ho could, and he Is
having his troubles at that.
