Racy Paragraphs From the Capitol Ob
(By Oscar Brenton.)
If I am over fortunate enough to
find a euro for appendicitis, some
thing that will go- without the knifo
accompaniment, I will keep the
secret very near my heart and to
deceive even the patient I will per
form the scratchilits operation,
bandage the wound and let her go
at that. I am inspired to do this
by the attacks that have been made
on Doc. Wayson who seems to have
discovered a cure for some forms of
leprosy and failed to take into his
confidence one Carl, Ramus, who,
apparently, cannot take the time
from his fiddle or his swimming
fests to discover anything. He is
fortunate in the possession of a drag
that holds him in a good job. I
heard a priest say the other day
that the man who has done much
toward finding bacteria in the blood
of the suspects is Father Joseph, I
thinklie said Joseph, and ho is still
hunting for them. Wayson and
Reinicke are at the receiving station
working hard and without gloves.
I remember as a boy seeing a
painting by the great Turner repre
senting, some boys playing cards on
a flat grave stone in a church-yard.
It was hung in a place I frequently
visited and the subject impressed
me as something but a shade worsed
than the portrait of Tom Paine, in
the same place, which had been re
fused a place in Independence hall
for some reason. As to the first; a
graveyard seemed an inappropriate
place for card playing' and I was
reminded of tlyit painting the other
day when I read of McDuffie cap
turing a gang of workmen shooting
craps in the basement of the new
Y. M. C. A. building. It would be
the last place, next to a cemetery,
I would think of looking for gam
blers. The association players were
given a stiff fine and I am of the
opihion.'that they will next seek the
basement of the Central, Union
church as a place wherein to tempt
the fickle goddess.
Chris. Snider, the man accused of
smuggling dope into Hawaii, has
returned to Honolulu with un in
geniously prepared a story of how
it happened and, naturally, pleads
innocence and ignorance of the act
Breckons, judging by his printed
remarks, takes issue with the man
from Montana and avers that he
has the goods that will put it over
him. Snider showed good judg,
ment in returning without the form'
alities of extradition thereby saving
both expense and delay. He will
get home sooner through this evi
dence of regard for the wishes of
Hawaii and Breck.
There seems to bo a wide differ
ence of opinion as to the transfer of
the troops from Leilehua to Hono
lulu and putting them in tho old
barracks on Hotel Street back of
the palace. Practically the only
people who favor tho change are
men who run cheap restaurants and
and postal card emporiums. The
bono and sinew of the business
population, the men who have fami
lies and who have regard for the
morals of their children are strong
ly opposed to it but too scared of
the Taft regine to speak out. Some
of them realize, probably, that any
thing they may say will not lnfve
the weight of a feather with tho
department at Washington. As a
matter of fact it would be ono Of the

Bill Lang got tho decision over
Jack Lester, tho American heavy
weight, in tho Bixth round of their
fight in Sydney recently tho lat
ter being disqualified for going down
without being hit. Lester broke
away from a clinch in a corner
and dropped to his knees in the
center of the ring, with the result
that the refereg immediately de
clared Lang' the winner.. Lester
rose, astonished, and wanted to con
tinue, saying his arm was wrenched
in the clinch and he went down to
rest it. Twelve thousand people saw
the fight. Lang wejghed 192, Lester
180. The betting was 5 to 2 on
Lang. Lang was disinclined to force
the fighting, and apparently had
prepared for a long contest. Lester
made the pace and in his anxiety to
connect left many openings, which
Lang was not slow to take advant
age of. Lester's work was charac
terized by many wild swings to the
body and short rights to the head.
The American was far ahead in. the
first round,! but Lang brightened up
afterward, the fighting t"hen be
coming more oven. Lester's attack
wasjavage. Lang gave ground con-
tinally. In the third Lester dropped
for the count of nine from a right
to the jaw. Lang took four seconds
in the fifth, .receiving a left and a
right to the body. In the sixth round
Lester rushed Lang into a corner
and landed a tremendous swing on
Lang's elbow. Then he broke out of
the clinch and fell down. Lester is a
young coal miner from Cle Elum,
Wash., who, after outboxing every
one in the mining camp, was
matched to fight in some of the
arger cities of Puget sound, and
made such a showing that Tommy
