If there has been an injustice done to anyone through anything I have said, I would like to see it corrected. If there are any false impressions extant I hope they will be straightened up by this article. At the meeting of the games com mittee yesterday I asked that the Ha waiian association pay my expenses for the present trip, giving as rea sons for the request the three follow ing things: Arrangements First: I came before the committee with this request because I had never been communicated with as regards the trip, consequently no arrange ments had yet been made as to ex penses, in other words I was com municating officially with the commit tee for the first time. Second: Heretofore at the big meets held here twice yearly the best tal ent obtainable was brought down from th mainland to compete with the is land stars, and all their expenses paid. Being at present the national champion for five events I considered that I was of sufficient class to be included this time. Third: As a business proposition be tween the committee and myself. There is a financial angle to the swim ming meet, and I have been told that my appearance might help swell the gate receipts. Considering thno throo tViino-o t baseri mv olaim f. full r,mo f ' expenses contracted by ,, the trip. There were three dissenting voices to ray proposition, Mr. Rawlins, Capt. ' Pepin, and Mrs. Leo. Mr. Rawlins stated his side of the affair, as fol- j Iuwb: That while in San Francisco he tried on two occasions to communi- cate with me, phoning the Examiner and the Olympic Club, two numbers which were left for him to call by me. He neglected to leave a message or word that he had called, when he was unable to get me at once. I inai ue maae arrangements w'th one Ernest Smith for my appearance, agreeing to pay, one-half my expenses. Mr. Smith claiming to be a representa- tive or mine. That was on August 8 he talked with Mr. Smith at the Hotel Stewart in San Francisco, that he had askrt ; Smith to bring me down to see him and that Smith said I couldn't come. j That on August 17, after I had left the coast, he received a wire from Smith in which was contained: "Ross O. K. half expenses." I From these things Mr. Rawlins 1 drew the conclusion that either the committee was bound to pay one-half ! my expenses, or nothing at all. I disposed of his statement in this manner: First: On his own statement he did not communicate with me. Another Angle Second: He claimed 4c have made arrangements with Mr. cmith and con sidered such arrangements valid. Sec th.n 11, rule 4. of the general rules of the A. A. l says: "An athlete who permits anyone oth?r than an of ficer of the club whicn ':c is entitled to represent in open competition to make arrangements for iii.s appear- ance at an adileuc nicetfr.. shall tlievoby render himself ine! gible for 'further competilim as an amateur" I Mr Smith is a swimmer at the O'.ym- i i' v.iuu, uic same a-i w.vsli. .Mr. Rawlins, who vas preside it of the H vAaiian as:- ciation of lae A. .

The base ball war is over and prospects are bright tor a successful series in Ho nolulu. Arrangements for a five team league has be-n arranged. The teams will phiy at Moiliili Fifeld, beginning Suiday afternoon. Sanies will also played at Schoiield This is the biggest piece of news l i has come from baseball circles Uiij year. The Oahu-Service League and the Honolulu League have been lighting since the beginning of the reason, and several times there was a possibility of peace, but certain phases of the situation could not be settled satisfactorily and as a result nothing was accomplished. Five Team League. At a meeting of the various man agers of the two leagues held last evening tt was deefded that the Pirates and Japanese would combine and play under the name of the Pirates, the Chinese team and Schofield Blues, which is the lst-32nd would make up the third team. Ruger would be the fourth, and the 25th Infantry, provid ing Captain Carr agres3, will make the fifth team. It is thought that with the baseball war over, the 23th Infantry would agree to play In a series of games. The league will be known as the Oahu Service League and the same officers of this league will be retained. Charles Chillingworth is president; Lieut. Co hen, vice-president; Bert Hushaw, secretary and Ed. Nell treasurer. Billy Miles ia manager of the league. Pacific League Baseball. The Pacific League has made ar rangements to secure Moiliili Field for all baseball played at that field; Billy Miles and Sam Nott, acting as repre sentatives of the league. Miles and Nott will handle all other athletic features. Satisfactory arrangements have been made with the former Hono- League managers Henry Chillingworth .and Lang Akana, two members of the All-Stars, have been named as umpires for the season. Lang was offered an oppor tunity to play with the Chinese team, and his addition would greatly strengthen the squad, but it is expect ed that he will favor taking a position as umpire. Henry Chillingworth is in bed at present, but Is expected to be around to take his place as official in the coming series. Same Prices. The sense of the meeting was that all the players should get togethei and work for the interest of baseball, 'his year, that all the September j races were io be open jnes. Captain Pepin sa? 1 that in his eyes . the committee was bound by the ar-j raneements made to meet .only half ,' my expenses. He was not able to re- main for the remainder of the neet ing. Mrs. Leo took exception to some ; statements attributed to me in tjjg i i local Dauers. I replied that ray, statements were according to fact, ; that if they had been controverted or j misunderstood I was very sorry, but disclaimed responsibility. Mr Andrews said he understood , from a signed article of mine in a i San Francisco paper that I was com-1 ing to Honolulu anyway, 'whether I was wanted or not. I explained that , mv statement was to the effect that T was coming anvwav. regardless of Mr Rawlins' statements that I would : rnt be allowed to im. as 1 be-, livpf? th: he was ciiikt "mui ; " . Ill J , nut aUtnorilV, Or HI itasi i-"u .i.r wt on to XV&?WiigJ; Not naving uwu nwu ------ here, and the date or tne meet ap proachine near, I went to the president of the Olympic Club and told him that j there was a big meet to oe held in , Honolulu; that - wanted to go; that Ij had not heard from the officials yet., but that I had been assured that the people of Honolulu wanted to see me swim again, and that there was very likely some good reason for my not being invited which wouU" come to liqht. I said I was quite sure that my expenses would be taken care of, as was usual, but I merely wanted an as surance that I would go, so I could train with that in view. He told me to ?o ahead, that the club was behind . me.' It was a report of this talk which Mr. Rawlin3 read and which lc" him nav mv expenses, or even ;nvite me. He told me in his office here that it was a business preposition; that if he could get me to swim for nothing or for half expenses, of course he would. I replied that I did not think such action fair. 111; 1101 v'wwu t .Mr. Rawlins then complained of the unfair treatnufft he had received in; the papers, saing that false impjes-, sions had been caused to r.rise from : my statements. 1 said 1 would sureiy , try and correct such impressions when the cause for them ceased to exist; a-lif n I received fair treatment I would epp iiiai Lie kui me .iir. ma irjir , .. as; .hat he would not barair. t At yesterday's meetins he bror.g' t At Detroit Detroit 5.

Leo, one of the ladies present. With the leading players of the cltj in one league prospects are bright foi a good series. The prices win remaii the same, although there has beei some talk of a change from 10 centi to cets for bleacher seats. Thli will be made only for the grownups in case it goes through, and the kldi will be allowed an opportunity watching the game at the same price. It is understood that the PaclfSi League will make a few improvement! on the grounds and in the stands which will be a big help to the game The various managers talked thingi over in & peacable manner, and then were no squabbles in the discussion A few details needed straightenini out, but it looks like a good omei for better baseball conditions in Ho olulu. Games on Sunday. At the meeting last evening it wai announced that the Pirates woul play the 25th Infantry at Schofiel on Sunday, providing that this ar rangement was satisfactory to Man ager Carr and the All-Stars. The 25t Infantry had a series scheduled witl the Stars, but Inasmuch as Henry Chil lingworth ia unable to play, and th fact that peace has been restored Lang Akana said this morning thai the Stars would be willing to give ui this game. If this arrangement is sat isfactory to Manager Carr ot the 23tll Infantry, the game will be the first of the league series. The lst-32nd will meet Fort Ruget at Moiliili Field on Sunday In th first game of the series, providing th arrangement is made with Managei Carr. The Chinese will lay off thil Sunday. The Pacific League will con tinue to play the opening gais at Moiliili Field on Sunday. There wi be no game on Saturday at Molliiw owing to the polo match. The Managers. .Hannibal S. Canario will be th manager of the Pirates, with Bill In man. formerly of -the Japanese, as tb captain. Sergeant Lester will hati charge of the let-32nd or Schofield Blues, and Manager Stewart will head the Ruger Giants. Kim Luke will lead the Chinese team. It might be Eaid that if these as gregatlons can get together a-d giv the fans the ben baseball possible, without haggling, the rcorgan ized OahQ-Servlce League will make big success. This is the one important point to be taken into consideration, and if followed out, prospects appeal unusually bright for the future of th national pastime. said that if I was a gentleman I wooM lift the stigma which had been casl upon the Association. I said that 11 was my intention to present both sides as fairly as possible. In a few; minutei Mrs. Leo made a motion thrft someons of the committee be appointed to see the papers and give them a true report ot the meeting. Mr. Jackson objected iu iuig as uieqpuneous to me. Mr. Andrews said that In view of thi fact that he had wired Mr, Rawlins in Sah Francisco to bring me, and that it was his intention that my expenses noma oe pam, ne could se no reason ny mey snouia not ne. Mr. Sopei concurred. Mr. Jackson put the mo tion, which was seconded by Mbs Stacker and carried. Mr. Rawlins 4fn M he wanted it under- no time against Wng my expenses He further went on to say that he wanted the whole mess cleaned np, so -- uau iu me there.
