What the Wrestlers, Boxers and Base
Ball Artists Are Doing.
Thrco Californians havo been
chosen to play with Champion
Larned on tho tennis quartet wliich
will defend the honor of America
against the world in the inlornation
al'tcnnis cup tournament. They are
-Maurice McLoughlin, Tom Bundy
and-Melville Long. The selection
of. this trio is an acknowledgment
hy the eastern experts that Califor
nia's racquet wielders are superior
to all the players of the east save
Larned, tho invincible.
By outfighting George Memsic
in eight out of nine rounds, Ad
JWolgast retained the lightweight
championship of the world in the
Vernon arena. As a result of a se
ries of right and lefts to the head,
Memsic was staggering across tho
ring in tho. ninth, when; Referee
Charles Eyton jumped between the
fighters and declared Wolgast "the
winner. Memsic could not have
weathered (ho round, and the
champion was springing to land tho
knockout when Eyton ended hostili
ties. " Judging from the eastern reports,
One Round Hogan is going like a
whirlwind back around New York.
Like all the others who rise to fame
in the. ring, Hogan is now playing
the vaudeville circuit. He has sign
ed a contract at $760 a week and
the New York papers say that he is
packing the" houses daily and night
ly and making good everywhere.
This only goes to show what a funny
game it is and how they nover re
cognize a prophet in his own land.
The S. F. fans had no use for Hogan
and they used to turn out in the
hope of seeing him licked. Ho was
just like Jimmy Britt in this respect,
but so long as he kept on winning
and.getting tho money hero he cared
little what the fans thought of him.
"Tho boy will beat Wolgast as sure
as New York is on the map," writes
Hogan's manager, -Walter Franey.
"All arrangements havo been com
pleted for this match for the even
ing of April 18 at Joe Humphries'
club and tell all the boys for me to
bet everything down to their socks
and their undershirts on the one
round terror. If, Wolgast wins, why
then wo will walk all the way buck
to San Francisco and go to work
fiorain." It is very evident that
Hogari has taken well in Gotham
and that he will havo a large f ollow-

in New York knew all about him.

Racy Paragraphs From the Capitol On
(By Oscar Brenton.)
Every resident of the territory,
with an idea above a gourd, knows
the importance of protecting the
sugar industry. But the hoi polloi
does not know of tho hundreds of
thousands of dollars that aro spent
by men interested in the cultivation
of sugar in fcrriting out tho pests
which tend to decrease the output
of the plantations. There aro some
in the community who snarl when
. i 1 1
an appropriation is asKeu ior ino
support of tho industry. But other
products are getting a hold on tho
soil and for the first time in my
recollection something tangible is
looming up on the horizon to aid
.the growers of fruits, of cotton and
other.staples. Representative Towse
is the father of a bill which passed
by the legislature and was signed by
tho governor. It means much to tho
men who havo put their time and
money in fruit cultivation and tho
time is not .far off when tho owner
of an avocado pear tree will havo at
his finger end the remedy necessary
to rid his trees of black blight and
whatever else may retard the growth .
Towse should have tho thanks of
tho people of tho islands for the
b'oost he has given them.

Representative Brown's banking bill
has been fought out by tho trust
companies and Brown says they are
just dogs in the manger. I do not
think that Mr. Brown has the repu
tation of being diplomatic. He says
what ho thinks and it usually comes,
speaking figuratively, right from
the shoulder. And in that way he
occasionally fails to make friends..
It seems as though the' bankers had
assented to tho plan to give tho
trust companies banking privileges
and now that the banks want a lit

fellows balk. Representative Affon

and bells of tho house, is doing

Rev. R. B. Dodge, Makes Many New
Friends for Hawaii.
Rev. R. B. Dodge, who has been
spending a vacation on tho main
land, and who returned Tuesday,
has been a whole promotion com
mitteo in himself judging from the
press notices ho received. Rev.
Dodge, though he went away for a
rest, could not forget to boost for
Hawaii, wherever the opportunity
offered. Below we give two accounts
of his lecture:
Picturesque Hawaii was tho sub
ject of an interesting stcreopticon
lecture in South church last night
given by Rev. Rowland B. Dodge of
WailUku, Maui, one of the Hawaiian
islands. The pictures, tho majority
of which were colored, proved most
delightful to tho largo audience.
They showed the natives in their
costumes, tho beautiful scenery and
many other features of interest.
Rev. Mr. Dodgo spoko of tho many
races on tho islands there beinc
70,000 Japanese, 25,000 Chinese,
24,000 pure Ha waiians, 35,000 Por
tuguese and largo numbers of other
nationalities. They all total 191,000

One of the most striking series of
views wero thoso on tho methods of
fishing in the islands. In no other
part of tho world is there such a
great variety of fish as. in Hawaii.
The views of the mountains and the
volcanoS were beautifully colored,
and Halcakala, 10,000 feet high and
having tho largest crater in tho
world, proved mosj interesting.
Thero were pictures of a trip through
tho crater, and the silver sword, a
plant found only in tho crater, was
- Mr. Dodgo described at length the
activo volcano, Kilauca. He showed
raro pictures of striking beauty of
the 20 acres of fire and tho various
effects of- the. fire at night. There
were also pictures of the lava flowing
out of MaunrC Loa, showing rivers of
firo two miles wide.
The great industry of sugar grow
ing was also touched upon and the
methods of carrying tho sugar cano
to the mills wero related. Tho slides
on this industry wero exceptionally
good. Mr. Dodgo has found that
his lecture, which, ho has" been giving
in tho New England cities for the
past three months, is creating a new
interest in Hawaii. Most reports
award the lecturer the highest honor
and tho pictures are splendid in
deed. S firing fieltt Union.
During the last two. months, Rev.
Rowland B. Dodgo, a former Wor
cester boy and educated at tho Wor
cester High school and at Amherst
College, has been prominently before
tho New England public as a lectur
er on Hawaii. .
For moro than five years Mr.
Dodgo has been tho business agent
for nearly forty churches in the Ha.-
wanan Islands, and has his homo
at Wailuku, Maui, tho county scat
of that portion of the group.
Ono reason why Mr, Dodgo has
been so well received as a lecturer
is becausQof his intimate knowledge
of tho lifo and conditions of tho va
rious nationalities among whom ho
works, and also because tho illus
trations he, uses are so excellent
lheso pictures aro. about two hun
dred in number and havo been se
lected out' of hundreds of photo
graphs that wero taken with great
pains. They aro tho result of five
years of constant travel and intimato
acquaintance with every phase and
condition of lifo m Hawaii.
