International , Meet Is Being
. Planned for Honolulu by -:0
Logical Plan for Contest in
: View of Showing Made
' ' by. Kahanamoku
An internaUonal -swimming meet
second in importance only to iha
now in progress atv Stockholm, i3 be
ing planned- for Honolulu, and within
the next few months the fastest Water
men in the world are likely, to be seen
in action here. ; " ;
The tentative plan, which has iae
with, general favor among those. ho
have discussed it, is to have the Aus
traJian swimming tcam new. compet
ing In the Olympiad, make a stop-over
at Honolulu on the return trip, and
swim' against Duke Kahanamoku and
others in local waters. A silll more
sweeping plan,, that of making a Ho:
nolulu "swimming carnival an- inter
national annual or biennial event, Is
behind the present project, for it- i3
argued that Hawaii is the logical com
mon meeting point for Australian aud
American swimmers, and that .Hono
lulu's right to establish such a fixture
has been won by the marvelous show
ing of Duke ICahanamoku. - -
The swimming project, which mayi
put Honolulu in the forefront en Intor
national. aquatic -Epcrt, grew out of "a
talk between W. T. Rawlins, tho'wel
known local sportsman'; . and . J.' N.
rkllllps, a former New Zealandor;
who i" one of the keenest swimming
fans . ,a the territory, Phillips, who
knows several members of the Aus
iralian swimming team . personally,
suggested - the possibility of holding
them here for sbme exhibitions on
the return trip, and Rawlins enlarged
on tho idea, and thought out the pus
Bitilities of making it a regular spoit
classic. - ' ' - . ,' ; ,. .
Scheme Extensive. ; . '
"The scheme isn't fully worked o'lt
by any means," 'said Rawlins this
morning, "but I believe that although
a big one, it could be swung with the
assistance of the community.-. We
don't know for certain that the Aus
tralia swimmers are coming back this
way, . but the supposition is that they
will make, the circuit of the " globe,
returning by Canada and the Pacific.
Mr. Phillips knows several members
of- the ; team, and' thinks , that they
would be glad to race here, and meet
Duke In his home vaters. If he bea'3
them over -there, they have nothing
to'lose, and a whole lot to gain by
swimming him In hawaii, for should
they be successful here, it would be
a bigger feather, in their caps than if
they beat the Hawaiian champion in
neutral waters. . '
"Of course such' a .meeting would
have to be. under A.. A. U. sanction.
and prizes would have to be cups or
medals, not cash purses., I figure cui
once well established and advertised
we could get entries trom the Coast
and possibly from the East, if Austra
lia would send up a team in future
years, and the event came to be -recognized
as a real championship. On
the present Australian team are" seve;
ral ladies. - . ',
Henderson Favors Plan. . ' .
Another e swimming expert . greatly
in favor of the plan is Lew O. Hendr;
son, who piloted Duke and. Genoyes
on their Eastern trip. ' t
"No place in the world has a , better
right to pull off swimming champion
ships than Honolulu " said- Hender
son. "The shpwin? that Duke iins
made in the States and abroad has
made Hawaii the most talked of swim
ming center, and such a mee a g
would certainly be a fine thing foe
the sport here. I hope it goes through
and I think everyone who can help
should" do so, for Duke and his per
formances have been about the best
publicity that the territory has had
for a long while. ' This good work
could be'kept up by scheduling an in
ternational meeting here.". . , '
The Idea is to have the races, in
the harbor, both by, daylight . ; and
night, building grandstands on one
of the slips And charging a fair priee
for choice seats, to v help defray' ex
concps Thtk Kcheme is too big. how
ever, to be swung without concerted
action of the entire community.
The Hill interests are preparing to
spend $3,000,000 to build a terminal in
Portland, Ore. The terminal will cov
er eleven city blocks. The Michigan
Central will build a terminal at De
troit at a cost of $1,000,000.
