Dear Sir:
We do hereby protest the game

following ground, viz.
Jos. Fassoth 1st. batter up in the
ninth inning was declared out.

base and then relayed to 3rd. base
said runner Jno. Costa being call
ed out by Base Umpire, but said
decision was reversed by the Chief
Umpire Mr. Fernandez on the
grounds that said ball out in left
field had been returned to left field
er by a spectator such not being
the fact.
On the ground we protest and
pray for a hearing.
Yours very respectfully,
H. M. Honan,
Capt. Koloa Athletic Club,
A special meeting of the Direc
tors of the K. A. A. A. was held
last Wednesday to consider the
above protest of the Kojoa team.
Both umpires were present and in
terviewed. After a long discursion, the point
was held, that if the umpire in
chief. Mr. Fernandes still consid
ered the play ..v'question a block
ball, then the decision must stand
as given, it being a play to be de
cided by the umpires judgement,
as laid down in Rule 63, Spalding,
B. B. Guide. r
Mr. Fernandes stated, that in his
judgement the ball after being hit
by Costa went under an automo
bile, and that he saw the arm and
shoulder of some person not iden
tified, passed the ball to the left
fielder, who then relayed it into
play in the manner described in the
protest. Except for this blocking
of the ball, Costi would have been
out at third, but upon this block
alone he called him safe. Mr. Fer
nandes firmly adhering tc his view
of the case, the Directors after due
consideration had no recourse but
to find in accordance with the
Rules, and by a vote of 6 to 1,
threw but the Koloa protest and
let the game go to Makaweli.
"I am a dangerous man this

He was refused admittance by
Mrs. Kahele who told Waiau that
his wife would not see him and did
not want anything further to do
with him. He was placed under
arrest but later released upon fur
nishing bond to the amount of $200.
The case will come up Friday.

Kauai may now feel competent
to keep step with the foremost
progressive communities. With a
chamber of commerce to take up
matters which need improving and
to officially voice t h e long felt,
wants of the community it should
be an easy matter i f all put their
shoulder to the wheel of co-operation
for Kauai to forge ahead, to
the mutual benefit of not only the
merchant and the planter but to
every member of the island com
munity.' With such an official body in ex
istence composed of members with
divers interests from every part of
tne island the deciding of vita,
matters should be greatly faciliated.
Had there been such a body in ex
istence at the time of the harbor
and wharf controversy a mutual
agreement wou'd probably have
been easily and quickly reached.
Among some of the items to be
taken up by the chamber of com-
meace in the near future will be,
the bettering of the Telephone ser
vice, in view of the noise caused
by the new power plant, reestab
lishment of daily wireless press ser
vice, the furthering of harbor dim"
wharf matters not to mention the
results which must follow insistent
promotion work.
"Watch Kauai Sprout."
It is by a strange coincidence
that the Lihue butcher shop cash
register should be stolen and brok
en up, at the very time our friend
of the I. W. W. teachings is so
busy preaching t o and inciting
Filipinos laborers to riot, and dis
order. Such an act as was perpetiated
at the butcher shop last Thursday
is practically an unheard of thing
on Kauai, and it is not stretching
the iniaginatiin very far to assume
it was as a direct result of uncon
stitutional speeches made recently
in Lihue, by A. V. Roe.
He is quoted at one meeting as
having told the laborers "That
they should not work more than
four hours per diem and should
not be made to rise before eight or
nine o'clock. Their v ives should
wear silks and satins all same
Boss's wife. If one man is sent to
jail why; all go along with him.
The county cannot feed four or
five thousand people. If you have
nothing to eat, go and steal; I
would do the same myself."
If this sort of thing goes on we
shall find more cash registers brok
en open. Anyhow we have three
months to think the matter over.
