BABE RUTH WILL EXHIBIT HIS TALENTS HERE
Babe Ruth, the foremost champion at baseball, and the greatest batter, constantly making homeruns in a majority of the games he is in, will play in an exhibition on this coming Sunday, October 22 at the ball field of Kamoiliili, being that the negotiations for his actually playing here in Honolulu on the day shown above went well.
The people who are into baseball are talking about this game to be played by this baseball champ in Honolulu nei. The price [kaki] for entrance to see the game has not been announced, but it is certain that the fee will be a blow [kanono], because the expense to bring this man here to Honolulu is great, and we hear that his family will be coming to Honolulu as well.

BABE RUTH ASKED TO PLAY TO BALL GAMES HERE IN HONOLULU
There recently were discussions pertaining to the asking of the king of baseball, Babe Ruth [Bebe Ruth], the champion batter of America for many years in the past until this year, to get him to agree to play two games here in Honolulu at the Kamoiliili ball field this upcoming October 21 and 22.
Mr. Herb Hunter, a ball player promoter, spoke with J. Ashman Biven [J. Ashman Beaven], the one who leases out the ball field, about bringing the champion batter here and playing two games [kemu].
These two gentlemen recently spoke to work out the football game schedule since all the days good for football games are booked from now until the beginning of next year.
This is the highest paid player on his team. He gets paid seventy thousand a season for playing. It is a little more sometimes or little less sometimes.
