POOL TI
STARTS IT y. M. G.
ft.
A pool toernament started at the Y.
M. C. A. last night, on the new Pruns-
wick-Balke-Collender table recently in- j
stalled. It was called a tournament,;
but it was not played under any tourna
ment rules. Fifty points were played
to a game, instead of a hundred. The
pockets were not numbered, aud instead
of playing the fifteen balls off and set
ting them up again, each one spotted
up the balls he made after every shot,
like eight-ball-or-no-eouut pool.
This gave no chance to work out
intricate combinations from the bunch,
and it kept the balls lined up at the
,t nf the table most, of the
tim(? The seiell(.e 0f breaking them
safe and then picking them off one by
one from the bunch until, the chance
for cleaning the table would warrant
slamming through to open them up for
a run could riot be demonstrated in the
alleged pool tournament. There were
some average good players, however,
and some fairly good runs were made.
Pete Xottage beat Bostwick, 50 to
2, in the first game, but Xottage only
got 27 points against Hayes in the sec
ond match. Then Gordon defeated
Hayes. f.O to 47. Kaai beat Bostwick,
50 to 2ti, in the fourth game, and Gor
don won by one point from Kaai in the
last. Gordon was the only one who was
rot beaten. The last two players were,
very evenly matched Both were fairly
accurate on shots at close range and
put in some direct cross side shots, but
they were not very strong on position.

EN ROUTE TO ORIENT-
St. Mary's College Phoenix baseball
team is arranging to invade the Orient
next summer, says a Coast dispatch. '
The Phoenix will tour Japan and lineup
against the teams of the leading uni- ;
versities of that country. The (rip will,
according to present plans. last some
thing over two' months, and the team'
will lie under the direction of A. P.
Miller of this city, a former St. Mary's
student, who has large interests in
Japan, .and who is at present arranging
for the tour and forming a schedule of
game- to be played.
The trip will mark the first memor
able tour of the St. Mary's team since
170. when the college players journey
ed Fast and represented the Pacific
Coast in a series of games played dur
ing the progress of the Philadelphia
Centennial fair, and among the teams
that tiu collegians did battle with were
tlie Cincinnati Reds, then the Eastern
and Western champions, whom the
Phoenix held to a tie game.
Whether or not the Phoenix players
will include games in the Hawaiian Is
lands in their schedule has not been
le-ided, but tlie team will nifi-t prob

he could only handle about 523 an hour
i while the cars will run on a schedule
i to handle IsiOO an hour during the rush
time. This leaves a discrepancy of
I 1275 every sixty minutes, and the oniy
i way out of the dilemma is for as many
! as possible to go before the rush hours
! and while away the intervening mo

1 until the time arrives for the flights to
begin.
j The Rapid Transit company expects
to run three cars together every ten
minutes, said Lewis yesterday, and
ihese ears will accommodate at least
one hundred passengers each. This run
ning schedule will begin at out o'clock
and the flights are scheduled to start
at half-past two
The best Lewis can do, he explained,
7 ....
will be to keep three automobile busses
and six-horse tallyhos going. The autos
can make three trips an hour from the
end of, the ear line to Moanalua field,
and the horse vehicles can make two.
Lewis figured it out that the auto
busses would get away with 300 passen
gers an hour while the tallyhos could
accommodate 225. Every available au
tomobile and conveyance of every kind
will be engaged in advance for the
three days, Lewis declared yesterday,
and he issued a warning to all to get
in their orders earlv or, he said, "They
will get left."
The aviation exhibition management
has decided to charge a one dollar
extra for each automobile and carriage
entering Moanalua field during the
three days of the flights. Ed Lewis

Again Next Month.
Nigel Jackson i so .leased at the
sporting public 's ajipreciation of hia
efforts which resulted iu three very in
teresting and instructive scraps at the
Asalu Theater last Monday night that
he is at it again working up a card.
The Christmas bouts cost him $613 in
cluding all incidental expenses, and he
I took in enougii to cover mat ana tnen
some. Joe McG.um cleaned up $210,

there was no occasion for suspicion.
Jackson heard yesterday that Bill
Lewis, who is said to be the champion
lightweight of Australia, is on his way
ti" Honolulu and he hopes to match him
up with Joe McGuru for a go on the
twenty-first of next month. Lewis, he
said, is now fighting in the welterweight
dass and recently lost a decision in a
fifteen-round light with a heavier man
than himself in Hongkong, aud he sizes
him up at long range as a good match
for McGurn.
For preliminaries Jackson proposes to
put on Marine Fink, who knocked out
Trooper Bauersocks Monday night, with
Harding, the champion ot fort ivuger.

slated to partner Joe Pinney for four
rounds. He said he would not tackle a
go between McGurn and Alf Hall if the
Australian should happen to come
through with the money, but he would
like to match up Hoao and McGurn
again as he thinks the Hawaiian would
last longer next time.
