Honolulu, August 1, 1912. Editor "Thk Garden Island" Lihue, Kauai. Dear Sir: Having read the protest of the Waimea Baseball Team, published in your issue of July 30th. I will appreciate it if you will allow me space in vour paper to reply to same. With regard to the first section of the protest, involving a decision at second base on an attempted steal, would say that this decision was not mine. L was umpiring at the plate during that inning. The base umpire called the runner out and any claim of blocking that runner was.naturally up to the base umpire In reply to the second part of the protest, which claims a balk on the part of the Lihue pitcher, I will say that several statements contained therein are absolutely in correct. To quote the letter: " " With Waimea at the bat and first base occupied, the Lijiue oitcher deliberately and intention- nllv made a motion to throw the ball to the bat, but failed to do, so The fact is, that the pitcher, who by the way, is left handed. was standing about a foot to one side of his box, was facing first base, and drew back his arm as if to throw to that base, and not to the plate. Again, the letter states that: "Upon appealing to the umpire we were informed by the umpire after he had conferred with the Lihue oitcher and one A . R. Glatsver. etc. This statement is absolutely un true. I was in my position behind the pitcher, The motion toward first base was made, a balk was claimed, and I immediately render ed a decision by shaking my head indicating that the play was not a balk. If the decision was n o t given immediately and clearly un derstood, then I will ask what caused Mr. Cox and several other members of the Waimea team to rush wildly on the field, loudly rnmnlnininir. and what was their cause for complaint if no decision were rendered Furthermore, it stands to reason, that Dr. Glaisyer, who was on the side lines, would hardly come on Mip field and confer" with me over a decision in favor of his team, until cnmnelled to do so by the protest of the opposing team There was absolutely no con ference" held at which captains ot both teams were not present. The protest further states that "llnon the Waimea caDtain and "I came sir, in answer to your advertisement in last night's paper. You said you wanted to employ a man who was a total stranger to fear." Are you a brave man?" "I am, sir. I have given proof of my courage in many parts of the world." !!Yes?" "I have faced bullets in Mexico and machetes in Cuba." "Good!" "I helped to defend the mission aries against the Boxers, and I was present at the siege of Port Arthur. "Fine." "I have fought the infuriated walrus of Baffin Bay and the maddened bull elephants of Cen tral Africa, and I went through an Armenian massacre without losing my nerve." You seem to be the man I want. Would you be willing to go out on a field in front of 20,000 fair-minded, sport-loving Ameri cans and umpire a baseball game honestly, deciding against the home team when necessary?" So that's the job, is it?' replied the man of courage, and broke in to a cold perspiration and a run for the door simultaneously.

Clapper at Kealia Monday. That rule is therefore not appli cable. Rule 34, Section five, doej not cover the case either, as it states Any motion in delivering the ball to the bat by the pitcher while not in position defined in Rule 30 etc." In this instance, no ball was "delivered to the bat," therefore the rule cannot apply. Messrs. Cox and De Costa are wrong in part of their contention as contained in next to the last paragraph of their letter, to wit: We respectfully contend that Rule 30 clearly defines the pitcher's position, and Rule 34, Section 5 prohibits a pitcher from making a motion to pitch the ball while not in this position." The rule referred to reads: Any motion in delivering the ball etc." It dots not say, Any motion to deliver the ball" (or to pitch) as stated in the letter.

Wood Honolulu's veteran automobile man has recently pur chased a palatial seven seater 1912 model Packard, and as the result his business has increased to such an extent that he is contemplating h e purchase of another one. Good service and solid comfort combines all that it desired in a car, and Mr. Wood can justly boast of his success being due to his persistency in maintaining this combination. He is on the Young Hotel stand when not busy. For cancel to enaoie uiem iu i couiu not i,aVc been any motion the rules, this was reuiscu mm " made "i delivering nninire ordered Piav uau, uiiu the pitcher did deliver a ball to the bat with the captain and manager of the Waimea team on t h e diamond demanding time Before the came commenced, I asked Manager Cox i f there was a rule book on the grounds and he renlied that there was. When this claim of a balk was made, 1 called time and said to Cox, who had en tered the diamond to dispute my decision, "That is my understand intr of the rules. However, you said you had a rule book and if you will produce it and show that I am wromr. I will reverse the decision." Mr. Cox made no reply to this except to loudly protest and claim the decision to be a rank cheat He made no offer or attempt to produce the book, so after a reasonable time, I ordered him off the field and called the ball into play. To the best of my knowledge he and all other members of the Waimea team were off the diamond when play was resumed. It was not until the following inning that a rule book was produced and the It would appear that the Waimea team is basing its protest on Rule 34, Section 5, as that is the only rule referred to in summing up the case. As I have shown that this rule cannot be applied, it would seem that the chances of winning their point are rather slight. I have referred the case as I have stated it above, t o several local people who are recognized a u - thorities on the game, notably an umpire who is considered the best authority in the Islands, and in every case I have been told that the decision now under protest was correct. Before closing, I would like to explain my position a little further. I went down to Waimea as the guest of a friend, hoping to see a good ball game, from the comfor table seat and shade of an automo bile. On arrival at the grounds, I was requested to get out in the hot sun and umpire the game. At first I refused, but finally accepted on condition that my decisions be final, and on being assured by both team captains that 1 hart their confidence.
