Wins The Race
Yachts Nave Exciting Finish
in Kahului Harbor.
What was one of the most excit
ing finishes in a hundred mile-yacht
race was witnessed by a large num
ber of Maui residents last Friday
evening when the yacht Hawaii II
beat, the Kamehanieha past the
finishing stake boat by just two
minutes and fifty-seconds and mak
ing the run up in a little less than
twenty four hours from port to port.
The race was one between the Ha
waii II, Kamehanieha, Concord,
and Luka while the little yacht
Gladys made the run up but was
not ollieally entered.
The yachts arrived one day ahead
of the scheduled time and con
sequently found little preparation
for the reception of tho guests but
their, welcome was warm and their
presence was appreciated by every
Superintendent .1. N. S. Williams
of the Kahului Railroad Company
took the ollicial time for the yachts.
He did every thing possible to make
their stay in Kahului a pleasure as
did a number of other residents of
Friday night was spent in rest,
Saturday in sight .seeing and Satur
day evening in doing justice to a
fish chowder and a few other edibles
after which the greatest flow of
eloquence ever heard on Maui took
up the greater part of the evening
1 he speeches were all good, sen
sible effort!) and many were the hits
but none compared with the des
cription of how the Gladys and her
brave crew were saved by the in
ventive genius of Commodore Brown
who finding his pump broken and
no buckets aboard put all hands to
work with most suitable substitutes
uid thus a tale will be handed
down lo-posterity of how the good
yacht was saved by the presence of
mind of her gallant commander.
After the speeches were all listen
ed to with interest some one called
on Admiral Beckley. The Admiral
had been lead to believe that noth
ing short of a salute of twenty one
inins was due him and that luaus
every where should be given in his
honor. As these were not forth
coniiiiK'thc Admiral spent much of
his time' in Wailuku in berating the
citizens ot Maui for not receiving
the guests properly.
The supper and the speeches
seemed to have a good effect on the
diniral for he withdrew all the ills
he had said of Maui and was as loud
in her praise as any one. After
stating his position he attempted
eloquence but was interrupted in
the middle of every sentence by the
whole audience giving three cheers
and a tiger for every thing he said
J he .latter part ot his speech was
about as follows:

ire doing well, and there is every
reason to figure on some very close
uid exciting finishes on the !rd.
The track is being put in excellent
condition, and will be well - sprink
led, so as to prevent the dust, from
Hying, which has always been one
objectionable feature. The mule
race will as usual be a very interest
ing one. Nioi the old standby,
will probably be entered. The
gentleman's driving race will also
be interesting, if the' horses talked
of are entered. Defender, the. horse
that has won many a race at the
Kahului track, was this week sold
to J. Onishi, the merchant at Ka
hului, and as that gentleman is im
bued with the love of horse-ilesh,
there is no doubt but what he will
enter her for the Uncos. It is
rumored that the horse is already
in training. However, all in all, it
will be a great day at Kahului, and
as the day will be generally observ
ed, no better place could command
the attention of spectators than
good, clean horse-racing.

to make application for special

Many of the yachtsmen went to

there and made ready, on Sunday
morning for tho return race.
The Gladys left about eleven
o'clock for the return as she was
not in the race.
As was planned before hand by a
number of the yachtsmen Jack
