Tie game play-off. 3:30 U. S. S. Tennessee vs. Japs. TWO GOOD GAMES THIS AFTERNOON Hampton and Alf. Castle will be out for the Diamond Heads this afternoon at the Athletic Park, to help do things to the F. F. Vs. The latter are now the acknowledged champions of the fleet and may be relied on to make it iard for the Sparklers. The F. F. V. bunch have made them selves very much liked in town by the ripping good games they have put up and the official scorer of that vessel has taken much trouble to provide the papers with correct dope. We are all mighty glad to know that the good West Virginians will be out on the field thi3 afternoon. Schaeffer, the kid with the funny urves, will probably be in the box and it will be interesting to see wheth er the Jewels bite at his fadeaways or not. They say that they won 't bite. But you never can tell. These things look so easy. What, ho, you fadeaways. The Freddie Bassett kiddos, some times known as the cruiser Colorado team, will 'be there to battle with the Kams. The Hawaiian team is no sloucherino by any means and the boys with the portly manager will have to look after their laurels mighty hard. The first game starts at 1:30 and the second at 3:30 and" the place is the Athletic Park near the depot. Both games will be of the Lallapazoo order and are not to be missed by any means. THERE SHALL BE ONE LUAU 'jt: .tij ;St' HI j NOTICE TO FLEET MANAGERS. WILL APPEAE FOR THE FIRST TIME HERE. All off for the big luau at the Pen insula today. Train starts at 8:30 this morning and all the 'Tisers and Gazet teers will be there with their women folk to have the time of their lives. Old Man Boisse 's cartoon on the subject gives some very faint idea of the immensity and largeness of the occasion. Unfortunately he does not name the various exuberant characters he has depicted ana, with all due deference to the artist, likenesses are not very much in evidence. We shall presume then that Jim Williams leads the bunch on the cow catcher. Brother Mesick is seated comfortably in front of the smoke stack and the strained individual who is stretched violently over the safety valve must be S. P. Correa. Walter Pomroy with ihe pipe has the post of honor behind the steam box while the i hilarious gentleman on thexcoal tender j is supposed to be the sporting depart ment, in the act of throwing the entire business department overboard. Seated on the boiler of the locomo tive, right in back of Walter Pomroy, and waving a flag, is Ed. Dekum, who was summoned from Europe by wire less to conduct the function, while on the roof of the cab may be seen the lithe figure of the courthouse reporter ! looking at the mangled remains of a calf over whose body the juggernaut wheels have just passed. The kindly gent with the ukulele can be none other than Makanani run ning a vocal race with the engine whistle. Behind him we discover the kindly and gentle watchdog of the treasury and can only suppose that the delighted individual with ink-bespat tered garments is the night editor sing ing that sweet old song entitled "No Cable News Today." It will be one great time for every body. Arrived at the Peninsula there will be a baseball game and then there will be all kinds of sports and races, some of which are not on the program. Afterwards will come the luau and then the poor reporters will fade sad ly away from the scene and return to town to compile many pages of news for the Sundav paper, while the bar barians and compositors stay to finish the day with dancing and other fun.

The old boy with the calorified atmosphere is certainly spreading it round all right: Alvin "Keech from Hawaii is here, and invited me to come down to Edge- Yesterday the Athletic Park Asso ciation held a meeting and decided not j to hold any fights at the park. It was j expected at one time that they would puil off the fleet scraps there but they decided that it was not in their line j of business and, as Fred Smith has j stepped into the breach, they have de : f erred to him. I Fred Smith will pull off several ' events at Aloha Park next week. Aloha Park is on Hotel street exactly oppo site the end of Bethel street. He cannot say just what his program will be but he has Charlie Reilly here and will match him with the .best lightweight he can find on the fleet for next Tuesday night. There will be preliminaries to this main event and fair purses for all. Lat--er on in the week he will produce other boxing events. Just as soon as the cruisers dock, Fred will get busy and hopes to have a full program for pub lication in Sunday morning 's paper. Smith has brought off one or two goes here and always in the most unexcep tionable manner. Patrons of the sport I 1 I I E. P. REED'S E.P.REE0SCO.

Keech daily astonishes the natives but even he cannot keep in the water in these latitudes more than half an hour at a time. I was frozen stiff in fifteen minutes so came out to sit with the ladies on the beach and watch Keech do his stunts. With- 1 in a few days after his first exhibition ' the idea of the surfboard ewept down the beach and after a number of peo ple had been thrown and. small boys crippled, the Samoan surfboard was adopted. This is a bit of thin wood about three feet long by a foot and a half wide and place in front of the chest takes you in before the. small breakers. Our boys at Waikiki would indulge in body surfing and let it go at that. I have been using pictures everywhere in different publications illustrating how it is done in Hawaii. The voungsters at Asbury Park took the pictures from St. Nicholas and the account of how it was done and had a trv at it I i PHONE 282. The mile race prove a big drawing card at the Princess Kink last night; the floor being crowded with skaters while the spectators filled both grand stand and bleachers. The race started promptly at 9:30 Eddie Fernandez and J. Springer act ing as judges while Manager Naugardt officiated as starter. There were three entries, Bolster, Garnett and Kui. From the word go, both Garnett and Bolster started neek-and-neek in the lead with Kui third. During the en tire race a blanket could have covered the two leaders. Lap after lap was covered each straining every effort to They called them skidders shake his -opponent while the entire but no one has as yet attempted to stand, although the surfboard idea is spreading down the coast and has reach ed Atlantic City.

The Oahu baseball league very court-! eously gave way to the Marathon race and has postponed its scheduled games for one week. The race will start at the same time that the first baseball game usually begins. 1 Yesterday both men did some hard stunts. Tsukamoto went out on the road for a dozen miles and came back in splendid shape. His action was per fect and he hardly puffed at all when he was taken hold of by his trainers, cloaked and led to his dressing room where he had the usual rubdown fol lowed after an hour by a big haole meal of beefsteak and mashed potatoes with a. salad of green stuff. j Jackson also ran a middling dis-! tance. He was paced by Bill Chilton i on his motorcycle and was properly at-1 tended to by one sleuth, one rubber and one manager after the exercise. j Jackson pretends to be irked by the policing that is being done on him, j but he does not really mind it. It ! tickles him to death. Chilton knows just how to handle this ebullient piece of machinery and has Nigel properly buffaloed. hat Bill says goes and it goes mighty hard. - -f- CRICKET TODAY. There will be a cricket game at Ma- kiki field this afternoon between Bishop & Company and the H. C. C. Unless ' there is a cricket game between the British cruiser Bedford and the local cricket club, this will be absolutely the last game of the season. j Both teams have exceptionally strong lineups. They are as follows:' Bishop & Go. J. L. Cook-burn, w. Jamieson, W. Simpson, A. Baird, M. Maeintvre, M. M. Graham, Geo. Water house, T. P. W. Gray, G. C. Cantley, C. Louis, R. Sinclair. j H. . C R.
