THE MAUI NEWS I'KID.W, APRIL h, 1020.
Cutting Out Junior
Teams Is Considered
Matter Of Summer Series To Be
Thrashed Out Next Friday Four
Big Teams In Field Decision To
Be Had On Juniors.
At the meeting of the athletic divi
Rion of tho Maui County Fair & Pac
ing Association held last Friday night.
It was decided to call a meeting- of
tho base ball managers and others in
terested in base ball, for next Friday
evening, April 23, at which time it is
expected the details for the summer
base ball series will he decided upon
At the present time it looks as
though there will be four senior
teams in the field the Wars, lihai
nas, Asahis, and 1'aias. The question
of a junior series is still a question.
Some of these interested are in favor
of eliminating the younger set this
summer, while others hold that this
would be a mistake and would hurt
the sport on Maui in discouraging the
new material necessary to keep up
the older teams from year to year.
The matter will probably be decided
one way or the other next Friday.
There are several junior teams at
present more or less well organized.
One of these which is making quite a
reputation for itself is at Camp 1,
Spreckels ille, where a fine diamond
was recently laid out affording ex
cellent practice. MaUawao also has
the makings of a good team, it Is re
ported, while the Wacs have a capable
uouy or youngsters trying iu wran
into the game.
Wacs And Asahis To
Play Series Of Their Own
Although the summer baseball ser
ies will not begin for some time yet,
the Asahis and the Wacs have decid
ed to stage a little 3-game series be
ginning next Sunday, the proceeds to
. e used in defraying the cost of equip
ment of the teams for the coming sea
son. The admission will be same as
to the regular series games and the
returns will be divided equally be
tween the teams. Considerable inter
est is being manifested among the
fans in the little series.
Soccer Not Favored
As Summer Sport
Whether or not soccer is to be
taken up on central Maui is still
moot question. The matter did not
receive any extended discussion at the
meeting of the athletic division of
the fair association last Friday night,
but may come up later.
There is a disposition on the i
of at least some members, to fe
lt would be undertaking t- ... u to
start soccer at the o' .g of the base
ball season. Th .lembers favor
holding the r . open until next
fall and the organizing soccer to
take the ; .ace of the usual winter
base l '1 series.
Th oatter will probably be decided
at the next meeting.

that, there was room for doubt on a
vital decision, Del rick making a bard

games score stood fit in favor of the
Maui pair, the linesman calling it
safe, although many of the spectators
declared the return was out. This

Bowling Still Popular
Annual Dues Raised
Things are still hanging fire in the
matter of the proposed telegraphic
bowling tournament to be plaed be
tween lb" Gym club and Honolulu
teams. It is hoped to have the de
tails of this event satisfactorily ar
ranged in a short time, hi the lilean
linie the local interests remains keen
and the alleys in the gymnasium are
walked almost constantly.
At a meeting held this week some
new rules, were adopted intended to
curb some abuses of the alleys and
paraphernalia, and it was also decided
to raise the annual din s from ?2 to
?(!, it having been' found that the
smaller sum did not keep up the
alleys and pay for attendance.

Railroad May Get
Run From Hudson
Bay To Argentina
N I0W YORK. April 7 - Realization
of the dream of a railroad from
"Hudson Hay to Patagonia and Hu
enos Aires" has been brought nearer
as a result of the Pan-American Fin
ancial Conference in Washington, ac
cording to ('barks M. Pepper who, in
1 !M was appointed by President
Roosevelt under authority ofCongress
to visit the several countries from
M'-yico southward and report on the
A journey by rail from the Arctic
Ciicle to the tip of South America
approximately 10,000 miles could be
mule under good Irallie conditions, it
has been estimated, ill 16 to 18 days.
At present 24 (lavs are required for
the .r-,S71-mile sea voyage from New
York to the rapilnl of Argentina.
This dream of a trans-hemisphere
trunk line, running almost the entire
leugth or the two American contin
ents, was born in the brain of Hinton
Rowan Helper, a Southern writer and
former I'nited States consul in South
America, more than HO years ago. The
late I'nited States Senator Henry
Gassaway Davis of West Virginia, a
1'r.ictical railroad builder, saw its
feasibility, and, with Andrew Carne
gie and other wealthy Americans, pave
the idea a fresh impetus. James G.
l'laine also once advocated it.
First Definite Form
The project, however, received first
U liidte form at the International Am
i t !i aii Conference held in Mexico
City in 1!)02 when it appointed a per
manent Pan-American Railway Com
mittee composed ol prominent cillz"iis
of the United States and diplomatic
etlicials of Latin-American countries
resident in Washington. Former Sen
ator Davis and Mr. Carnegie were
members of it. Later, as the envoy
of the President and the representa
tive of the committee, Mr. Pepper
went to Central America and South
America, and after visiting the vari
ous countries for a year, returned and
made a report which has been the
basis of subsequent -"ion and
The general idea outlined in the
Pepper report was that the different
South and Central American nations
in their railway construction should
give special attention to the links in
a through inter-continental trunk line
North and South which, ultimately,
would be joined. Attention was also
given to the building of branch lines
and "feeders," especially in South
America, on the theory that in time
there would be through lines from the
Atlantic to the Tacific which would
form intersecting systems.
Subsequent Pan-American confer
ences held at Rio Janeiro and Huenos
Aires approved the idea and continued
the Pan-American Railway Commit
tee. The International High Commis
sion, now renamed as the Inter-American
High Commission, which was
the outgrowth of the first Pan-American
Financial Conference held in
Washington in 1915, also approved
the project and urged its support by
the various Republics.
"In the 18 years since the plan was
endorsed by the Mexican Conference,"
explained Mr. Pepper, ''considerable
progress has been made in joining
up various railway sections. Chile

I lias closed up 'most of the links in
'her Pan-American trunk line. There

jvia to be complet.ed, some of which
is also graded, in order to provide
1 1 iiiv.io.ii inilw-av connection from Hu
enos Aires to La Paz and to the Paci
lic. It would cost approximately
-.'i, 000,000 to complete it. .
Loan to Form Link
"The group committee on Holivia
at Hie recent Pan-American Financial
Conference recommended that a loan
be granted Holivia for the purpose of
of completing this link. It was ex
plained that the gauge was the same
as that of the Argentine lines and an
arrangement by which Holivia could
use Argentine rolling stock was sug
gested." Hy a coincidence Mr. Pepper, who
made the Pan-American Railway re
port under President Roosevelt, was
a member of the group coinmillee on
Holivia. He also was railway adviser
to the Committee on Transportation.
This committee adopted a resolution
offered by Martinez Vargas of Holivia,
Tor ('tilling a Pan-American Railway
Conference further to consider the
subject of railway operation, inter
change of traffic, standardization of
rates and financing. This resolution.

Anient ilia's keen interest in developing-
Ihe Pan-American trunk line pro
ject was indicated by Dr. Iticardo c.
Alilao, a member of Ihe Argentine
Financial Missio.n. not only lit the
conference in Washington but also in
his address at the recet banquet of
the Pan-American Society here. It
was later pointed out by others that
Argentina now has an 1.100-mile rail
road from 'Huenos Aires to the Holi
vian border, much of it built by Iirit
ish capitalists whose interests in
Sou ih America are estimated at $4,
oiio. ooo.oiMi, half of which is r.aid to be
in Argentina. The Argentine govern
mer.i. it was raid, controls this line.
France and Helgium also have heavy
South American railroad investments.
The war, it . is said, has made p
virtually Impossible for European
countries to continue their financing
of South America and this is why
delcgaliens from Colombia, Peru,
Chile, Hraz.l, Ecuador, Uruguay, Para
guay and other South American lands
have visited the United States in re
cent years to awaken American in
vestors to what they call "a big in
vestment opportunity." The proposed
trunk line would run from the United
States-through Mexico, Central Ameri
ca. Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, almost
the entire length of Chile and from
La Quiaca, Holivia, to Huenos Aires.
From this main line would be con
necting roads, some already complet
ed, extending like "fingers" in many
directions toward the Atlantic ocean.
