The Territorial Board of Health

They sent . Dr. Shepherd together

Whenthe doctor got into the Kula

fecting apparatus and men to help
in the work. It is the intention to
go over the district thoroughly, and
clean out every vestige of the disease.

"I will make n heavy weight
champion out of you within two
years." Tommy Burns, , former
champion, told Dick Lester, the
Cleelum miner who has recently
cleaned up everything in the North
west. With this statement Lester
signed a contract making Burns his
manager for two years.
Burns refereed the fight between
Lester and Ed Hagen of Seattle re
cently and was much impressed by
"He's a world beater and, with
good training, will make one of the
best fighters in the business," Burns
told a friend after the fight. He
telegraphed Lester to meet him in
Seattle and offered to assume Les
ter's management. They came to
terms without difficulty and the
contract was signed.
In January Burns will go to Eng
land where he is matched to fight
Sam Langford, and will take Lester
"My old friend, Hugh Mcintosh,
is conducting a club in London,"
he told Lester, and he will give
you all the matches you want.
will see that you are pitted against
men in your class until you gradu
ally improve.' A match with Jack
Johnson will come later."
Dick Lester's real name is John
Jubeck. He was born at Calumet.
Mich., and is 19 years bid. . He is
of Polish parentage, his father be
ing a machinist, and his people live
at Bessemer, Mich. He is 5 feet 10
inches in height and in condition
weighs 190 pounds. Before he gets
his foil growth he may reach six
feet in height and his weight is
bound to increase.
Battling Nelson is not winning
himself much popularity by the
manner in whicn he is talking after
being fairly beaten by Owen Moran
The Dane should be the last man in
the world to take the credit
away from the victor, for he has so
often been a winner himself and he
was always given the honors that
were due him.
Nelson's defeat by Moran entirely
eliminates him from the running so
far as the lightweight championship
is concerned, and his friends advise
him to retire. He has been a use
ful ringman for 14 years and it is
no disgrace for him to go down at
this late day in his career.
Moran.'s victory gives him. the
legitimate right to meet Wolgast for
the title, and it is believed on all
sides that the next fight which the
champion indulges in will be with
the Briton. Wolgast does not want
to engage in any ring doings until
next May, so this will give Moran a
good rest if he does not care to en
gage in any minor battles before
Moran 's victory over Nelson 1ms
boosted Johnny Frayne'a stock, as
the latter fought Moran to a draw
recently in a 10 round fight at New
Orleans. Then Frankie Burns of
Oakland held Moran even, for 10
rounds and .was beaten in four
rounds by "One Round" Hogan,
so the fight between Hogan and
Frayne looks like a hard one to
pick. Both boys have started their
training work, and from all indica
tions these lads should put up a
great contest. Hogan and Frayne
are now both, anxious to meet the
Englishman and Frankie Burns of
Oakland would give anything to get
another crack at the Briton. At
the present time there seems to
be plenty of budding lightweights
iu sight, and there are several of
them who appear to have champion
Continued from Page 1,
Pioneer stock is stronger today
than it has leen since the great
slump of a few weeks ago, when it
went almost to $160. The quota
tions now are 1170 bid and $177.50
asked. It is rather strange that
although bidding for Pioneer has
been strong, and asking figures just
a little higher, transactions have
been few. During the entire week
only one tiny block of 6 shares
changed hands this on last Thurs
day at $170. It should be noted,
however, that on that day Pioneer
paid its usual dividend of $2 a share
(total of $55,000.) The situation
now is that while there are buyers
in the market for Pioneer, no one
seems disposed to sell when it comes
right down to the point.
Haiku and Paia stock have re
mained solid at $150 asked. Last
Wednesday someone took a nibble
at both, bidding $125 in each case,
but no notice, other than to offi
cially record the same, was taken of
these offers. Wailuku and Olowalu
have remained absolutely unchang
ed, no stock appearing and there
being no bids. ,
On Thursday Paia paid a divi
dend of $1 a share, the sum being
$25,000; and Haiku also came
through with $1, her total being
$15,000. That is the day Pioneer
paid its big dividend of $55,000,
bringing the total for Maui for the
first five daya of the month (includ
ing Hawaiian Commercial) up to
the handsome sum of $195,000.
Stocks other than Maui came up
a little during the latter part of last
weok, but were a nhade off yester
day. Ewa is easy at $26.75 bid and
$27 50 asked, as is Oahu at $25.50
and $26. Honokaa is $10.50 bid
and $10.75 asked. McBryde and
Olaa are each $3,875 bid and $4
asked, while Hawaiian Sugar is
$34.50 and $36.
KAHULUI MAILWAV WINS.
Alexander & Baldwin have been
unofficially notified that the Kahu
lui Railway Company will get the
contract for the Kahului Breakwater
work. The bid of the railway peo
pie was $1.85 per ton for quarrying
and delivering the rock at the proT
per places on the breakwater. The
total of the contract will be about
$120,000. A kick was made against
the bid of the Kahului Railroad
Company by rival contractors, but
the objections were overruled by the
authorities of the United States. .
STORM ON HAWAII.
News is still arriving hero of a
heavy wind and rain storm which
has visited the island of Hawaii.
The fall of rain in and around Hilo
was excessive, while it -reached
seven and six inches along the north
coast of Hawaii to Honokaa, where
the fall was 5 1-2 inches. Consider
able cane at Onomea, Hakaluu and
other plantations was thrown down
but the damage is not great.
Savoy Vaudeville Co.
The Savoy Vaudeville Company
who are now showing in Hilo, will
arrive on' the Claudine Tuesday,
