The continued agitation over
Great Britain s poor ' showing Ip' v
the Olympic games brought aboiit
a meeting recently of theathletis
advisory club to consider the sit- -uatipn.
Lord- Desbo rough. who.
presided, said that If Great Britain
competed at Berlin in the next
Olympic garnet she mutt take the
games as seriously as do other
nations. - He advocated a ' team
representing the entire empire in
the track events.
Lord Desborough proposed $25.
000, raised in each of tie ' next
three years, and j0,0Q0 the, fourth
year, to be nsed for preparations.
A letter from Sir Arthur Conan
Doyle, was read announcing that
he would appeal to the public for
1125,000. The Rev. R. S. de Cou
rey Laffan, a member of the Brit
ish Olympic committee, proposed
that $150,000 he raised.
The most exaggerated impres
sions prevail In England regard
ing the American Olympic team.
Enormous sums were spent and
an army of trainers carried, ac:
cording to British newspapers.'
Lord Desborough is quoted as say
ing the running track and iwim
ming tank on board the Finland
for the Americans cost $100,000.
The solemn Blackwoods Magazine
prints an editorial under the heni
"The Folly of International
Sport." which is the fiercest at
tack on the Americans that has
yet appeared. It accuses them of
being professionals "whose only x
business is to show that these
United States can whip the uni
verse." SAWED OFF

right across to the Jaw with as fast,
lean and pretty a hit as has. been
seen in Hilo, Barney Williams dropped
Jockey Willis for nine last Saturday
night and when the .little norse ' rider
attempted to get up again,' sent a. sec
end one to the head that completed
the job. ! -V r
The verdict was expected 'and un
expected according to which tide of
the- fence you were. Many (jf the i
fans who had seen Williams- work
out thought he could get Willis while
others believed that the jockey could
end his man to sleep. v
Althbugh the fight was short,
such is the luck of the game and the
hit was too clean for any suspicion
of fake about it( Indeed, one of the
nleasing things ' in connection with
the whole card was the freedom from
any suspicion of fake.
The first preliminary between
Young Jeffries and Young Cans
would have been much better had
Young Gang tried a little harder.

third round and gave the verdict to
