All-Chinese Team Want to Buy
Outright But Notley Seeks Man.
element of Aggregation.
' (Frem Thursday Advertiser.)
' ' Members of the , Chinese Athleti:
Union are on the anxious . seat as to
the position f their All-Chinese team,
and they are wandering if the aggrega
tion is to become a member of the Oahu
League or not during the season ot
IS 14. Although the team was admitted
to the' league at a recent meeting of
the directors, there is considerable red
tape te be unwound before the aggre
gation' knows just where ihey are at.
According to the ' members ' of the
team, and the public was led to believe
likewise, the All-Chinese were to pur
chase the ' franchise ef the nearly de
funct rjtars, paying the aum of S20J
for the same, this being the exset
amount or near tt, of tl note heid
by Thomas Treadway ' against John
Notley. , ' .. ,. , . i. ' , ;, "
Now . comrs another angle to ' the
wrangle. It is stated that John .Not
ley, manager of the Stars, wilt dispose
of his franchise only on condition that
he remain aa managur of the All-Chinese
and share in the profits of the
team with the players. This proposi
tion does not meet with the approval
ef the team nor the Chinese Athletic
Union. They are willing to take up
tae note Treadway holds against Not
ley, or Are willing to enter the Oahu
league ujion the same conditions ns
the St. Louis Aluruui entered, paying
the sum of $100. .
It is the contention of the Chinese
that the payment of 200 to Notley
does not get them anything, and that
he is receiving $200 for simply turning
the urine of his Htars into that of All
Chiaese, and that he will still be in
absolute control of the situation.
What the All Chinese, seek to do is
to bur Notley out, take on his nets
with Treadway and teromo scls owners
of, tho franchise; ' Or they are willing
te file 1 another application with the
(Bhu league and becoms a lona file
member; as are the Punihous, Ht, Louis
Alumni Sad other teams!
That ' Notley should d'spoSe of bis
franchise outright to the All Chinese
is the consensus of opinion for the brt
interests of baseball. The Htars, as a
liidl (nam, were a joke and did not help
baseball whatsoever,, while en the ether

"Th UiOcnity with this argument is
that there ia nothing in the election

the ilute . of the general election, such
date being fixed by the Organic Act in
section I, ad while, the paragraph
from .section S3 refers to the election
lawa providing for n cation of Dele
gate to Congress, there is nothing in
Ih eteetie lawa of the Territory on
this subject, the whole matter of the
election of tbe . Delegate being ' con
taincd in section. SO of the Organic
Act., It may be argued from the act
that congress has piovided . that ' the
legislature anight amend the laws relat
ing to tho election of the Delegate, and
that the only law on tho subject ia part
of the Organic Act, that thus congress
intended that the H'giitlature might

jihrasoology; that is, the first election
