A Miserable From hundreds of visitors nl the Ililo nice meet
Defense, of this year, from the daily news papers, of Hono
lulu and from the Herald published in Hilo comes but one verdict.
A verdict of condemnation of the rascally methods carried through
in spite of the efforts of such men as John T. Moir and Kuhio.
The Hilo Tribune makes the matter all the worse by putting
forth the most miserable defense possible. It virtually admits the
charges made but accuses both Honolulu and Maui with being as
wicked as those lliloites who conducted the crooked work there.
The Tribune says editorially in its issue of the 13th instant:
"Hilo admits that Ihc race meet was a lizzie and that the visitors
did not see such sport as they had good reason to bel'eve they
would be treated to. The press in Honolulu has taken great pains
to explain just how bad it was, and it is unfortunate for Hilo, which
as a whole was entirely innocent, and, at least, as disgusted as the
visitors with the turn which the affair took, that she must shoulder
the blame. Through the tirades of abuse, however, one note is
predominant, namely that of satisfaction in the hope that Hilo may
hereafter be deprived of the crowds which came to attend the
Fourth of July celebrations in the only town in the Islands which
has the ambition, ability and patriotism to get up celebrations
worthy of the name.
Honolulu has for several years past been unable to summon
forth sufficient patriotism on the part of its citizens to have any
decent celebration of the great day, beyond a sparse display of tire
works, which were, we believe, as a rule imported from Japan.
Juandiced with dog in-the manager-like envy it therefore seizes
with avidity the opportunity to make the most out of Hilo's mis
fortune. The Hawaii sportsmen have been cursed and sworn at,
and double-damned, and it might therefore in this connection be
interesting to note that when it came to rotten methods Honolulu
was not so slow. This is no defense; but in view of the self-right-oous
howl set up by the visitors that they were "skinned" by the
Hilo men, it would be well for the Honolulu press to note that the
Honolulu sportsmen "skinned" some Hilo people ns well.
The facts did not come fully to light until after the excitement
was over, but they are none the less interesting. For instance,
Wm. Vannatta, who played for the Honolulu team, charged Hamp
ton and Fernandez with throwing the baseball game away, and he
states that he was told plainly that this had been pre-arranped.
Hampton and Fernandez are charged, even more definitely than
any of the racing charges have been made, with having bet against
their own team, and as a further proof of the thing, at least one
man, who bet on the Honolulus, was paid back his bet when he
made his charges as above.
Furthermore, the Advertiser charges that the Marathon was not
squarely run, but apparently forgets that the man who is alleged
to have thrown the race was Jackson, a Honolulu man, and the
Oahu champion at that. However it must be stated in fairness
that the Tribune does not believe that' Jackson did less than his
very best to win the race, though he tried to cover his defeat by
hints to the contrary. Had the Advertiser writer heard all the
different and contradictory statements made by Jackson after the
race, he would probably be of the same opinion.
Finally, the Maui News puts in an oar, roi.sting Hilo while
making a strenuous bid for the Fourth of July trade. The writer
had one experience with a Maui race meet. One incident of that
was that he was charged seventy-five cents for two eggs, fried in
lard, and a cup of coffee with two flies in it. He paid the money at
the counter on the spot, only to tiqd the same item in his bill when
that document was presented the following day. On that same
occasion he was asked by oflicers of the Maui Racing Association
to refrain from '"playing up" the complaints of the Honolulu visit
ors, who had been fleeced to the skin, the plea being that it would
hurt the town.'"
The attempt of the Tribune to clean the skirts of the crooks by
making counter charges against Honolulu and Maui is pretty low
and does not help the matter in the estimation of the public."
The story about Maui is not in keeping wilh the. experience of
hundred of reputable persons who have visited the island and the
race course there during the past number of years.
As to the experience of the Tribune's editor with the flies we
are willing to accept his statements as we have no proof to the
contrary. He may have needed a batti for all we know but cer
tainly that can not be charged up to Maui.

Friction Exists Between Ku
hio and Frear.
Honolulu, July 27. Is Delegate
Kuhio tired of his job in Washing
ton and if so upon whom will the
mantle of leadership in the Repub
lican party fall? Several are ready
to come forward and to saeriliee
their business interests in the ser
vice of the Territory, but public
sentiment has a good deal to do
with such a matter and the ties
tioii is a deep one.
As soon as the matter of Kuhio' h
possible refusal to take anolher
term was broached, the name of
W. (). Smith was suggcA-d and
that gentleman has never been
heard from ns denying the fact
that he would accept if the honor
should be thrust on bis shoulders.
The trouble here comes with the
leaders of the Republican party
who state, with one or two excep
tions, that should W. (). Smith be
nominated, it would mean the cer
tainty of a Democratic delegate.
In the campaign three years ago
when Smith ran for the Senntr. he
was elected only after the hardist
kind of work by the party leaders,
who stnte thdt he would not be
able to do as well in another light.
As for his election as delegate to
Congress they say that this would
be out of the question.
The only other name which has
been mentioned with any great
amount of frequency is that of
George I!. Carter. He has had
the Washingtonian bumble bee
buzzing around hi head for some
time according to all report. Un
fortunately for his chalices he is
persona non grata with a great
many of the party leaders and his
candidacy would give the Demo
crats a better chance to put up a
strong fight than anything else
whichcould be suggested. The Lanai
land deal, always one of the strong
points of L. L. MeCandless cam
paigns but which has faded away
considerably of late, would be
brought back from its.coflin. Num
erous other official ami semi-oflicial
acts of the ex-governor would be
brought to light once more in a
manner that would hurt not only
his chances but those of the Re
publican party in general. This
would, of course, all come up after
the convention, and it is said that
at the present tune men can he
found who are ready to wager with
big odds that if Cartel 's name is
ever brought before the convention
it will be snowed under by an
The general sentiment seems to
be that Kuhio should remain in
ollice. His record, it is stated, en
titles 1 1 iin to return if he desires to.
On the other hand it is stated that
the business men are ready when
the time conies, to make every

Stories are going around to the
effect that Kuhio is sore at the
Territorial administration. One of
the bones of contention is said to
have arisen over the dropping of
George Smtthie fiom the pay lull
of the treasurer's department. It
is contended that he has always
done his work well, has gien the
best years of his life to the govern
ment and that he was dropped
without reason. On account of
the fact that he is probably one of
the closet friends of Kuhio in Ho
nolulu it is thought he might have
been given more consideration
than came through a summary
dismissal on the ground of re
trenchinent. It is said that one after the nth ;r
Kuhio's friends and followers in
the Territorial service are being
dropped out and that in Washing
ton Governor K rear's influence was
opposed to the Delegate in many
ways. It is known that they came
to open friction in the matter of
the selection of th" Mahuka site
for the Federal building and that
other matters were almost ns
strenuous. How much influence
these stories have hail on the re
ported retirement of the Delegate
is unknown, for he refuses to talk
on the subject. Hawaiian Star.
