.'he United States Continues to Permit
Its Subjects to Be 'Butchered With
Apparent lndiffercnee.
Monroe Doctrine Puts it Up to The Uni

According to latest news from
Mexico, the country is in a high
' state of indignation over the pos
sible intervention of the United
. States. American and British flags
'h a v e been torn- to shreds and
trampled in the streets and a mob
' marched through the streets
carrying the Japanese flag, midst
shouts of derision concerning
America and Great Britain. It is
practically settled by the Washing
ton authorities that the time for
Mexican intervention is at hand.
History repeats itself. 1 1 will
be remembered that Spain was al
lowed to drift along pretty much
as Mexico has, until the slaughter
o if several hundred Americans,
wlien the American people took
j matters in their own hands and in
decisive strokes, put an end
jjlJpo theatrocities. Americans do not
countenance war. onlv as a laslre
Aort, but when a hot-headed coun
try continues revolution, with no
s end in view, constantly commit
' ing outrages on foreigners .who
are not in the least connected with
the issues responsible for the out
breaks, any man with a grain of
. feeling for his fcllowman, mustad
' mit that the time has come for a
general reckoning. It's up to our
Uncle Sammv to step right in and
request .the fighting beliggerants
.to sheath their sabers, and if they
cannot, or will not,' then to employ
other pursuasives of a more effec
tive nature. No other nation in
existence would allow its citizens
to be butchered as has America and
permit those responible to go un
punished and Unmolested for such
a length of time. The Monroe
Doctrine establishes the United
States as a protectorate over the in
terests of other foreign subjects
than American, who own property
in Mexico, thus placiug.the United
States under a moral obligation to
see that these subjects are pro
tected as well.

The game which probably at
tracted the most attention on Sun
day , was that played a t Kilauea
between the home team and the
MeBrydes. It was a well known
fact that if the Kilaucas could de
feat the big champions, and Koloa
could defeat the K. A. C's, in
Sunday's games, the Koloa's
would have-an even go with the
McBryde's in the race for the
second series championship. This
very thing did occur and the Ko
loa team now stands a mighty good
chance to annex the champion
ship. This will add greatly to the
interest in the sport, by necessitat
ing the plaviug off a tie. The
game of Kilauea, as shown by the
scores, was, an excellent one, being
full of ginger at ovcrv stage, and
greatlv enlivened by Che almost
continuous rooting of gaily dressed
femininity. The game closed with
score ot 4 to 3 in favor of the
home team.
K. A. C.s
The Koloa team, filled with self
confidence over the recent defeat
of the first champion winneis, took
possession of the Kapaa diamond
last Sunday and after a , nip-and-tuck
game, succeeded in establish
ing itself on thejsame shelf with the
prospective winner of the second
series. Great excitement prevailed
throughout the baseball element of
the island when it became known
that the Koloas had, by winning
Sunday's game, gotten up into the
winning class, and speculations as
to the outcome'" are flying thick
and fast, adherants of both the
McBrvde and Koloa teams, feeling
confident of ulinictte success. The
Koloa-Kapaa score was 4 to 2 in
favor of Koloa.
It looked like old times again
last Sunday when Makaweli and
Lihue mixed it up in a lively game
with the visitors winning out with
a score of 8 to 7. There was the
usual, crop of scraps which would
last indefinity and it seemed that
some questionable decisions were
given, favoring t h e Makaweli
team'. An umpire, a brother to
two of the Makaweli plavers should
never have been brought i n to
judge the game. By dojng so, ten
men instead of nine, would com
pose a team. The Lihue team, at
times, played excellent ball, es
pecially in the field having three
double plavs to their credit at the
close of the game. On the other
hand, thev made errors which cost
them dearly. In the first inning,
Makaweli put two men across the
home plate and Lihue came back
with three runs. The visitors tied
the score in the third, and forged
ahead twice in the sixth, the home
team making three more runs in
the same inning. The eighth
inning saw one more man cross
the plate for the home team, mak
ing the score 7 to 5 in favor of Li
hue. But the ninth inning had to
be reckoned with and as usual, the
h mic team went into the air, and
the visito scored another trio of
runs, putting them i n the lead
where they remained to the end.
This is the third straight defeat
of the Lihues in the ninth or extra
inning, and the seventh straight
defeat from the Makaweli team in
three vears without a single win.

An Echo From Maui
"You fellows here o u Kaua!
certainly know how to conduct a
baseball league harmoniously.
Why in Maui we recently had to

When a man caiiuot leave an ex
press wagon on the road for a few
hours without having one of the
wheels stolen, i t would appear
that the time had come when po
lice protection would be a mighty
sensible precaution.
A week ago last Sunday even
ing, Manuel Govea,.a clfrk in the
Lihue Store, had the occasion to
take an express wagon to Hana-"
maulu for the purpose of bringing
some household furniture to Li
hue, and while he was in the house
of a friend, a Russian, who had
had the misfortune t o break a
wheel corresponding with those
on the express wagon, waited for
the cover of-darkness, when he re
moved the broken wheel, replac
ing it with one of those on Govea's
The vehicle driven by the Rus
sian contained a number of his
countrymen, some from Makaweli
and others from Lihue, all being
more o r less under heavy sail,
which would have carried them
safely home had it not been that
they struck a reef in the vicinity
of the Lihue Store, when Govea,
having been notified by a passing
neighbor that a wheel was missing,
had gathered a few volunteers and
hurried in hot persuit. The men
were held up, the police , notified
and the wheel recovered. The next
morning the much sobered indivi
duals explained the situation, and
were released Save one, who was
requested to contribute the sum of
a ten spot and costs to the county

tection. There is no need to ask
why. Everyone knows.
THS-tfhuSWf' 'ptopolitmn is
being generally discussed, many
feeling that unnecessary delay is
causing the hold-up. It is claimed
that when the final selection was
made for our harbor, about half of
the necessary amount for the pro
ject was then available, and it is
this fact that gives rise to the dis
cussions as to the delay or neg
lect as one may view the matter.

At the treasurer's office yester
day morning articles of incorpora
tion o f the Hawaiian Canneries
Company were filed. Albert Hor
ner, former manager of the Kuka
iau Plantation Company, is slated
to manage tin new pineapple con
cern, which will have its principal
place of business and general head
quarters at Kapaa, Kauai.
The co in pa nv is incorporated

of twnty dollars each, but with
the piivilege of increasing the
capital stock to SI, 000, 000
Albert Horner, Cecil Brown, J.
L. Coke, and E. L. Schwarzberg,
arc named a s the incorporators
while the officers are given as fol

Isador Jacobs, of California, vice
president; J. L. Fleming, secretary
and Cecil Brown, treasurer. These
with Arthur Rice, J. L. Coke and
C. W. Spitz, constitute the board
of directors.
Manager Horner expects to leave
today for Kapaa where preliminary
work to launch the new concern
will be initiated. Because of the
recent cut in the price o f the
canned pineapples, it is stated, the
company will start out on a small
er scale than was originally inten
ded and it may be two years be
fore the activities of thefnew plant
ing interests assume anything like
real shape.
Horner has just returned from
the mainland where he looked
carefully into the field and it was
on his report to the local people
that 'it.was finally decided to go on
with the launching of the new en
terprise. Before his departure for
the mainland. Horner held a num
bejj of important conferences with
LtySl ?ommissionei Tucker, since
most of the land which is expected
to h e brought under pineapple
culture consists of homesteads re
cently taken on the Garden Is

Referring to a n article as to
damage done to the pineapples in
the district of Homesteads, Hon.
T. I. Siiva, the Eleele' merchant
who is also a pine grower, says
that on his plantation the pest has
not done a great deal ef damage,
and that he is rather inclined to the
belief that the reported damage of
ninety per cent is overestimated,
That the pest is damaging the fruit
considerably, he says is a fact but
that he is quite positive that the
damage is much less than the re
ported per cent. In his own case,
for instance being a little less than
two per cent. "I am of the opi
nion," said Mr. Silva to a reporter,
"the planter who gives his nines
the proper attention, need have
little or no fear from the pest. The
greatest amount of damage done
by the pest is to be found in neg
lected fields, and as I have said, I
firmlv believe that precaution in
the raising of the pines will obli
terate the, pest."

Appeals to The Patrioliim of Hia Coun
trymen to Assist in Promoting The
Interests of "Motherland."
The followii g gem of English
literature is from the "Aug Pag
kakaisa," Kauai's Filipino paper:
"Dear subscribers, countrymen:
I should like you to permit me
in expressing my p or thought to
' " TH E UNITY , " r e w s p a o c r s
which were first' established here
in Kauai with the a d of lion, E.
B. Bridgewater ai d by the founda
tion of our countrymen.
So dear readers I inquired too
from you the greai-full apologize
if I admit mistakes, it is because
I'm not a boy of wisdom or of
characters, as those who was born
in tunc of good such as the ora
tors, Philosoptrs. Poets and
another great men in this world.
Dear Countrymen I grieved for
some paasover in Kauai, for not
having the confederation of our
nationality and by the accomplish
ed Filipino, as we aie now in this
Hawaiian Tmilun, Uii,L hue to
be as laborers many years ngo, we
know and observed already, that
the influences of t h e different
branches of knowledge by the na
tions which remained here, and
did many good things that they
might show to those who do not
know the path of 'Unity."
Well dear countrymen, I may
signifies to that we might make
ourselves socialism in order that
we should observe the intelligence
of what "The Unity," newspapers
means. So let us take and sub
scribe these newspapers for it gives
us the most interesting subject;
where we can find out the neces
sary and important things that can
help our short humanities..
We Filipinos here in Hawaiian
Territory, that was born to our
"Mother hand" it's also necessary
for us to dig up our mind and
show other nations who are still
in this islands, that we Filipinos
having the most intelectual obe
dience, as they do; why shall we
not use it? Is that because we don't
have strength? Oh it is impossible.
As tor us I know dear country
men, if we shall leave it like this,
how can we develope our know
ledge and hel; our "Mother land."
For my own imagination Mother
Land will not b e off from the
heavy chain that tied her longtime,
so if we shall be United, Unity
will teachs us how to help each
other hard to be done to controll
ourselves and to be educated. For
that reason we are capable to rer-
fortn our ability t o assist our
Mother Land," that lied and
suffered to her extended to help
her, let us all unite ourselves, there
we might liable to arrange in good
condition as the most respectful
nation any where.
Let us all unite ourselves in
right way, and tke right manner
in a easy word, let us all Filipinos
be as a man as other nation do; in
case it is not difficult things to do
for they could observe ourselves
that in a unity a right capacity of
