ij Tlie citizens of Wailuku should not wait any longer in the
nut Iter of calling a meeting and organizing a citizens' committee
for the purpose of looking after matters of general interest to tlw
town. And one of the first things to be looked after is the ceme
tery. Not only tho grounds but even the graves themselves are
overgrown and choked up with weeds and lantaha. and the only
thing that is done in the way of clearing out the grounds is by
those who are allowed to go in there and cut grass for hay. " It Is
impossible to take a stroll through ouir "God's Acre" without hav
ing one's clothes covered with weeds and seeds of plants. Who, 'we
would respectfully inquire. Would be willing' to die and have his
remains laid to their long rest in that bramble patch?
VV Concerning the matter of statehood for the Islands, about
wnich the row in the senate occurred on Tuesday, it is ob
viously too soon to agitate that question at present, and the
legislature should waste no more time over it. The legislature
should first bend all its energies to the establishment of self
government for the Islands, and
districts, road districts, and the other paraphernalia of local govern.

a local government, and that we are able to run it successfully,

nobler and more" dignified manhood among them. The right of
self government carries growth in
better manhood, it would be a
increase numerically on the Islands.

In tho lobby of a hotel the other
evening a number of men were dis
cussing sports and sporting men
when the subject of nerve nnd grit
cnni up. One of tlie party, a
well known Califoi'tilnn, who knew
"Lucky"- Baldwin In the old days,'
"Buldwln was about the hardest
man to be ehiseieu out or anything
he set his heart on getting that I J
evr met up with. A whole lot of
people tried to put it on him in busi
ness nnd other sort of deals, but none
of these ever succeeded In catching
'Lucky'' Baldwin sufliciently asleep
to make their plans stick.
Horsemen still talk about a funny
game m which Jiaklwin hgurcu on
one of the Chicago race tracks a
nun. her of years ago. Baldwin had
brovght his magnificent string of
thoroughbreds to Chicfigo to make
an erlort to, annex the swell stakes
that were then on tap on the trncks
in the wind- town, and he got them
homo first or in the money in many
of t'ie biggest events. Well, he had
onp of his finest horses entered in a
alimblc long distance event, and
Baldwin was particularly anxious to
wfn this race not so much for the
purse end of it as for the glory of
capturing the stake. His horse just
about figured to win, too, and Bald
win intended to go down tho line on
the animal's chances, not only at the
truck, but at all of the big poolrooms
in the country. Ho stood to clean
up considerably more than $100,000
on the horse if the brute got under
the wire first. Baldwin's regular
Stable jockey was taken sick on the
morning of the race, and the old
man had to hustle around for another
boy to ride his horse in the big event.
Fr in another horseman he bought
or ; big round sum the release of a
high grade rider, who was to have
taken the mount on a thoroughbred
that didn't figure to get near the
moi;ey m the stake race. Baldwin
gave the jockey his instructions as
to the way he wanted the horse
ridden, and then, when the betting
oponcd, his commissioners dumped
Baldwin's money into tho ring in
such large quantities that the horse
became an overwhelming favorite.
A quarter of an hour before the
horses were due to go to the post a
well known bookmaker, to whom
Baldwin had often exhibited kindness
iu less prosperous days, ran to where
tho old man was standing, chewing a
straw, in his baru.
"Baldwin, said the bookie to the
old man, there's a job to be&t 'ou,
and you're going to get beat. They
wanted me to go iu with 'em, but
you've always been on the level with
me, and I wouldn't stand for it. The
ring has bought up your jock, and
your horse is going to be snatched.
"Much obliged for 'telling me that
replied tho old man. I'll just make
a stab to see that the boy doesn't do
any snatching, though.
Baldwin borrowed fnother gun
from, one of his stable hands (in Miose
days he always carried one of his
own about as long as vour arm), and
witli his artillery he strolled over
the infield and took up his stand by
the fence at the turn into the stretch.
He hadn't mentioned to anvbodv
what he was going to do, and the
folks who saw tho old man makin
for. -the stretqh turn simply thought
that! Baldwin wanted to watch the
race from, that point of view. He
did, for that matter, buthe happened
to nave anotner ena in view.
("Well, the horses got away from
tie post i iu au even bunch, and then
Baldwin s horse went out to make
the running, Tho jockey's idea was
to l-nco the horse's head off and then
puu mm m the stretch', making it
appear as If tW animal diad ' tired.
Baldwin hnd: instructed the'jock'to
play a waitiug game and make his
bid toward the finish. The horse
simlJly. outclassed his company; how
evei, and he didn't show any indica

the '.lorses wre still a hundred feet
from him, Baldwin let out a yell: to
attract his jdekey's attention, and
then he flashed., h(sjwp euns In the
sun.ight and bawled ftt tho Jock:

"The jock gave one look at those
two guiis that Baldwin was point-
tng straight at ftki. Then ho gave
Baldwin's horser fcJs head, sat down
to ride for all t'nAt was In him, and
the horse uudef nim cantered In ten

ever tried to" yank one of his horses. '
THE BAND PLAyED "DIXIE."
AVIicri North Carolina celebrated
its centenary, tho Marino band was
ordered to Fayettevllie to partici
pate hi the ceremonies, said Band
master Sousa. The little southern
town was much interested In the
advent of the "president's band,"
and the prevailing opinion was that
Dixie" would be tabooed music with

mittee waited upon me and intimat
ed that "Dixie" was a popular melody
in that vicinity.
"Of course," said tho spokesman,

ber, sir, that we are very fond of
Bowing gravelv, I thanked the
committee for their interest in niy
programme, but left them completely
in tho dark as to whether I intend
ed to play the soug of the south or
The ceremonies opened with a
patriotic address by Governor Fowle
launding the glories of the American
flag, and naturally the only appro
priate music to such a sentiment
was "The Star Spangled Banner,"
which the crowd patriotically cheer
ed. The tone of the succeeding oration
was equally fervid, but the speaker
enlarged upon the glories of the
commonwealth whoso one hundredth
anniversary was being celebrated.
The orator sat down, and there was
a momentary pause, and then as I
raised my baton the sti ains of "Dixie"
fell upon the delighted ears of the
thousands round the platform.
The unexpected had happened,
and such a shout as went up from
that throng I have never heard
equaled. Hats were tossed in tine
air, gray haired men embraced, and
for a few minutes a jubilant pawle
monium reigned supreme. Dbring
the rest of our stay iu Fayetteville
tho repertory of the Marine band
was on this order: "Yankee Doodle,"
"Dixie," "Star Spangled Banner,"
"Dixie," "Red, White and Blue,"
"Dixie." Youth's Companion.'
