THE PACIFIC COMMERCIAL ADVERTISER, HONOLULU, FRIDAY, AUGUST 27, 1909.
3 ft SAFE MORS HAD II NARROW HAVE; Anderson and Brown Snatched Honolulu Cricketers From Loss. The Honolulu cricket team defeated the Mauinese toy four wickets at Ka Lului on "Wednesday. It was not a brilliant victory by any means. In faet, had it not been for the great stand made by Bob Anderson and Will Brown in the first inning, it would have been all off with the visitors. ' ! The game was well protected but poorly tnreatenea au rne way mruugu, with tne exception namea auove. The Honolulu boys did not show the. form they had with them in practise games and' the Maui people, with several first timers in their team, made a remark able showing. The features of the game were many. The bowling of Lindsay for Maui, the batting of Ayau, the Chinese player who went out on a cricket field for the first time, the wonderful catches of some of those who had played baseball, the one and only four-hit made by Bob Anderson, the great fielding by Will Ch;llingworth, who had played the game only twice before, the fall-down of the Honolulu team in both 'the beginning of the first inning and all through the Charlie, the milk wagon Chinese kid, second inning, the grand team work of who pattered round the Marathon the Maui players. All these were full course at the league grounds and came of interest, . not only for a cricketite very near winning, but for anybody who likes to watch a The international foot race is now sporting event and they were all easily assured. The management of the Ath Miiderstandable. -, letic Park has been keeping things very Skinner Goes in First. ' quiet. They sent a man up to Hawaii . . a r,- ;f, to see if Tsukamoto would enter a lilt? Y r rt L 11 T 1 nan naiiu ciaxia l- " aided by the mat brought over from Honolulu, was rather heavy on account of the stubby gTass underneath. . There was an hour of practise on both sides and then the two captains, MeGill and Skinner, tossed up. 'MeGill won and sent the Mauinese in first. Von Tempsky took the score book, two other Maui players umpired and Skinner and Thompson took the bat. Bob Anderson and MeGill bowled and they began to do deadly execution. Bob bowled the first ball which was neatly blocked by Skinner but it was not long before Thompson was neatly stumped for a duck's egg and then Sparks went in. , None of the Maui players made any thing of a score in the first inning. They would have made a whole lot more if they had realized the weakness of the visitors' fielding. Their run ning was not by any means intemperate and they might have made many more if they had taken more chances. Lothrop Withington who fielded at long on (corresponding in a way to centerfield at baseball), made some fine catches and would never have been deb . ited with an error in the American game for one running catch which he just missed. Try to Show Ayau. Ayau, the little Chinese player who made a great score in the second in ning, was bowled for 2 runs, simply be cause some of his own side tried to show him how to hold a bat. If they had let him alone, as they did in the second inning, there is little doubt that he would have saved the game. He tried to hold the bat according to form and the consequence was that MeGill sent one of those off-breaks that curved round his bat and took the bails off the wickets. The tragedy of the first inning was when Mr. Ault, the "Man they love on Maui" with a "Eev. " before his name, failed to show up in time and Densham was sent in to take his place and run opposite McHardy. The two made sev eral runs through McHardy 's excellent batting, but the reporter ran too hard and was stumped before he could get back to his block. Had he been more careful, there is little doubt that Mc Hardy would have batted out a large score. A Sad Opening. The first inning of the visitors opened like a whitewash tub. Ljndsay started the ball for the Maui team and had the Honolulu batters going in great shape. He came very near to perform ing that great old hat trick. Harry Bailey, Maxwell, Jordan and Lothrop Withington were all out for just one run, made by Lothrop, when the Bob Anderson and Will Brown combination started to get busy. It was something to remember the wav the two played up to each other and swatted out the doubles and triples. Forty-seven for Bob and 16 for Will before they were each bowled. Then the rest of the bnnch went in and man aged to make the entire total 101. Tiffin and Talk. There was tiffin of the best before Bob and Will were put away. Large bowls of lemonade with creaking ice floating therein, trays of sandwiches with friendly people to hand them Tound and much eating and talking over the prospects of the game. When the Maui team went in for the second inning, Tom Skinner made an awful mistake. He scheduled Ayau to go in last. He should have sent him infirst. Ayau forgot form, he reroem bered only that he had a wide bat in his hand and wanted to soak the ball. Mere bouncing curves were nothing to him. He found that pillule every time and soaked it all over the place. Withington Bowls WeLL Thompson and Ault went in first and made a good stand but one was caught bv Lothrop. who was bowling and Brown bowled the latter. Tom Skin ner stood by his bck for 16 but there was no exeitement until Ayan and Troup got together. Batting and running with the utmost verve, that little Chinese fellow who plays baseball the same he eats candv. for the pleasure of it. kept the best bowlers guessing. Finally the inning ended when his partner was caught out TSUKAMOTO AND CHARLIE WILL ENTER TEN MILE RACE Wireless From ililo States That Speedy Jap Will Run Against AH Comers at the Athletic Park. Possible entries for 10-rnile race to be held at the Athletic Park for big purse on September 4: , Tsukamoto, the Japanese runner who eSit jackson in the Hilo race, Mgel Jackson, winner of the Haleiwa an(j League Park Marathon races.

Cockburn, who showed how he could make the pace for the first part of the grind over the Haleiwa course. , Last, but not by any means least, race. Yesterday the reply came by wireless. "Joe Kubey, Tsukamoto will enter race, send $50 by wireless for training and traveling." Joe sent the fifty plunks right quick. The park management states that en tries will close on September 1 at the uptown office of the park, Real Estate Exchange, opposite the Union Grill. First frize will be $100, second prize $50, third prize $25. Course Is Laid Out. The eourse has already been made out and staked. AIL that is necessary is to put up stakes and ropes and there are sockets sunk in the ground so that iron stanchions may be screwed in and ropes stretched round the track at any time. The management has been figuring on ouietlv having the track fixed and all quietly naing tne tracK nxea ana an this for a long time. They have been arrangements made for scoring. The scoring will be done according to the latest ideas brought from the Coast. Each runner will have a separate blackboard. There are six laps to the mile and there will be ten spaces oppo site each name. The scorer will tally six laps to the mile. As each runner comes round the home plate, the man who is looking after him will make a tally on hi3 board. The spectators will be able to see at a glance how many miles and laps each junner has made and there will be no strenuous pulling of paper, like there was at the big and Ayau carried his bat from the pitch after one of the grandest exhibi tions of "How to learn and play a new game like an expert in fifteen minutes" that was ever seen. Very Keen Cricket. The visitors had 101 to their credit at the commencement of the second in ning and only 107 to make. It looked like a cinch but the Maui bowlers and fielders bucked up and actually per formed the remarkable feat of naking seven men go in to bat before 8 runs were scored. Of the Maui hospitality, of what they did for the visitors, of how good the old place looked and ot many other de tails, all this will be found in other columns. It was not expert cricket but it was keen cricket and was delightful to watch and, perhaps, to take part in. The official score follows: O., overs; M., maidens; E. runs, and W., wickets. MAUI.

He does not want to run ten miles. He want3 to run twenty-six miles.' He comes through with the following communica- tion. He may be right. There is no i criticism to be made here. Mr. Jack' son is a wonderful athlete, he is the keenest and most eareful baseball scor er in this town and he sees more clever plays in one afternoon than the aver age fan would find in a year. Here is Mr. Jackson 's communica tion: To the Sporting Editor: There Is some talk of pulling off a ten-mile race at the Athletic Park in Honolulu in the near future, and great stress has been laid on a match between myself and the Japanese runner from Hilo, who was my competitor and conqueror in the Fourth of July races held there. I wish to state for the benefit of the sporting public that I never have claim ed to be a fast runner, but a long-dis-tatfee runner. As can be shown by many records from the Coast, a ten mile course is considered a fast-running distance and 'hardly an endurance run,, such as a Marathon. I therefore challenge the Japanese runner, prize, purse, or . for glory, to run over the regular Marathon course, 26 miles 365 yards, or to any distance over that he may choose to name. Thanking you for space in your paper, I remain, Very respectfully, NIGEL JACKSON. , Charlie Is Training. Whether Jackson enters or not, the park management assures a good race with the Hilo Jap and good little Charlie entered. It is understood from an inside source that Charlie has been put in .training during the last few weeks. The management saw that he had enough to pay another man to run his milk wagon for him and also put an expert trainer in charge of him. Way beyond the end of the Kaimuki car line Charlie has been housed, in training quarters. Every morning he has been out on the road with an ex pert who knows how to train a runner. Patter P1' Patter over the road g thniio ljti- st,,rfiv ioa nf ,; ;v, those little sturdy legs of his, and, with the Knowledge he has gained of breath ing and correct stepping, he will cer tainly make a grand ten-mile race. Entries Close Soon. The idea of this race is of short no tice to the public, but will lack no in terest by that. All the. entrants have had private notice and will be in great condition. There will be no entrance fee demanded, but only those who are fit will be admitted. Anybody who wants to enter the race is welcome to send in his name to the uptown office of the park before September 1. J. H. Fiddes, c and b Lindsay . .... 3 F. B. Withington, not out 0 H. M.

Contributions are asked of ladies who have in their pos session receipts for cooking articles in Hawaiian stvle or which thev have iised for haole dishes. This book is sought by chefs and homecookcrs all over the Territory. Indeed, its reputation is more than local, and this time it will be the aim of the ladies who have taken up the work to secure sueh receipts as will give to the book a standing in the homes of people in the old world. The ladies request that receipts be written on one side of the paper in typewriter where practicable, aad so plain, when with a pen, that the intel ligeut compositors can make no mis take. The offerings should be made to Mrs. W. W. Hall, 1703 Nuuanu avenue. MISS B1RNEY PLAYS JILL i Tennis on Beretania Courts Brings Out Local Society. That the lawn tennis .tournament now being held on the Beretania courts is a soci.il triumph was deraonstrated yes terday, when at 4:15 the enclosure was completely surrounded by car riages and automobiles, while every seat was taken and the entire lawn covered with enthusiastic spectators. It has been a long time since soeiety has turned out en masse in a champion ship tennis contest, and the committee were last night shaking hands with themselves on the successful issue of their efforts to revive the ladies' cham pionship singles. Interest naturally centured in Miss M. Hall, the petite and graceful player from the Coast She plays a Larford stroke and drives down the side lines in a manner that would do credit to the DohertyS. Her opponent was Miss M. Bosher, and i was to be regretted that the latter had to enter the tournament without any preliminary practise. Although play ing against almost certain defeat, Miss BosLer struggled pluckily through to the end and won the admiration of all who witnessed the contest by her game struggle against overwhelming odds. The match of the day, however, was between Miss M. Birney and Miss Ruth Richards, both of this city. Miss Bir ney plays an underhand stroke, while her opponent has an excellent serve and places her returns with judgment Miss Richards started off with a rush, and had her opponent 5 games to 3, at which stage, however, Miss Birney played almost perfectly and tied the score at 5 games all. Miss Richards had just enough energy left to win the two following and deciding games, Changing courts seemed to throw Miss Richards off her game, and her antag onist took the second set rather easily. The third and deciding set also went to Miss Birney, but only after a des perate contest that abounded in difficult shots and brilliant plays. Mrs. D. D. Gregory of Schofield Bar racks made ner initial appearance against Miss A. Oleson of this city and won rather easily in straight sets. Miss Oleson seemed to tire badly, while Mrs, Gregory improved as the game progress ed. The winner plays a hard, driving game and locates well. She is certain ly a factor to be seriously considered, and her match with Mrs. K. Hind to day to see who will enter the finals with Miss Hall will be watched with great interest. Young Atherton Richards continued his winning streak with . Conness yes terday, taking two straight sets rather easily. Conness was very wild and most of his strokes were out of bounds, He did not play up to form, and Rich ards did not have any great difficulty in getting the decision. Conness play ed brilliantly at times, but lacked the steadiness that is the first necessary qualification in tournament tennis. Gee met Noel Deerr from the gov ernment experiment station, and the latter put up a surprisingly good game: although the score would indicate a rather easily acquired victory. Most of the games went to deuce, and when a player who is at all nervous plays a deuce game or set with a man of Gee's nerve and steadiness there is never Lmuch doubt as to the final outcome. It looks very much as though Gee would win without the loss of a single set. He is playing in perfect form and never seems to exert himself to any great extent, but the general result is unsatisfactory to his opponents. While young Richards was disposing of Conness, his father was having a hard and gruelling match with R. Sin clair. Game after game would go to 'vantage and back to deuce, until it seemed that the match would have to be postponed. Three hard-fought sets were necessary to furnish the winner in Richards, keeping up the reputation of the family and bringing both father and son into the semifinals. The play today will be of the very first-class and the tennis enthusiast who does not come to the Beretania courts will have good reason to regret bis absence. First, Will Roth will re turn to the game for the first time in many months, having been induced to enter the game in mixed doubles, lie and Mrs. George Davies will play E. S. Gee and Mrs. D. D. Gregory, and this match alone ought to be worth travel ing considerable distance to see. Roth is out of practise, but he is such an un doubtedly elever player and has sueh class that he is aiways able to put up a clever game. Mrs. S. G. Wilder and George Davies will play Miss Birney and David An derson; Atherton Richards and Miss Ruth Richards will play Miss iP. Hall and F. E. Steere; Miss iiosLer and Noel Deerr will play Mrs. Hind and "Son ny" Cunha. If these four contests could be improved upon, it would have to be outside the Hawaiian Islands. Then -the seniinnais ia gentlemen's singles will take place, promptly at 3:45. Players will please take notice of the change of time, this being neces sary on account of the numerous events to "be played off during the day. Mr. Gee meets Theodore Richards and Geo. Waterhouse plays Atherton Richards, the two survivors playing Saturday for the Hawaiian championship. No admission is charged to the grounds, and everyone who is interest ed in tennis is cordiallv invited to wit- ness the day's play, as it will be some time before an aggregation of players will be present to furnish such excel lent sport. is the purchase of a pair of Laird, Schober & Co. shoes.
