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 following letter from Hume Ford
dated September 11 in New York, came
to hand on the Alameda yesterday. The
old boy with the calorified atmosphere
is certainly spreading it round all right:

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.

in splendid shape. His action was per

There will be a cricket game at Ma-

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:'
