What the Wrestlers, Boxers and Base
Ball Artists Are Doing.
That well known trainer of ath
letes Mike Murphy of Yale gives
the following advice to young ath
letes: "Above all, don't drink any
thing alcoholic under any circum
stances. Drinking is bad, particu
larly if a man perspires a lot. An
orange is worth more to a thirsty
man at any time than a glass of
beer. In exercising on the road
or track an orange, carried in the
hand with an opening at one end
from which a small amount of
juice can be sucked, will keep the
mouth and throat moist and ma
terially aid the wind. This also re
moves all particles of dust, while
the juiceswill keep the stomach
toned up and prevent nausea. This
bit of information is especially well
adapted to members of the Boy
Scouts. On a long hike an orange
or two and a lemon in the knap
sack for convenient use is absolute
ly essential. A little lemon squeezed
in a glass of water is especially
valuable on long marches."
Melville.manager of Al Kaufman
has agreed with a Milwaukee fight
club to match Kaufman against Jim
Flynn for a 10 round return bout
some time in June. Flynn, has
signed a contract to fight any one
the local club could get to meet
him, and Melville said that he
though Kaufman would sign the
articles on the terms offered by
the local promoter in Milwaukee.
Tyrus Cobb, center fielder of the
Detroit American league baseball
club, after a sensational sprint suc
ceeded in recovering his automo
bile and capturing 19 year old John
Miles, who borrowed it without
permission. Miles was locked up.
Cobb's automobile, which was pre
sented to him last fall for his bat
ting prowess, was standing empty
in front of a hotel, but the owner
was in another car nearby when
Miles cranked up. A few seconds
later the chase was on, and after
a sprint of over 100 yards Cobb,
disregarding consequences, leaped
into the front seat and hurled the
youth into the street.
Matt Wells, the English light
weight has arrived in this country
and is planning an extensive cam
paign. While on this side of the
Atlantic the British boxer will meet
the best of the American boys in
his divison and hopes to wind up
in a battle for the world's cham
pionship. Wells won the English
lightweight championship by de
feating Freddy Welsh on points at
the end of 20 rounds. The merit
of the decision has been thoroughly
discussed in the English press and
many of the leading dailies over
there held that the verdict was
Cornell won the three-cornered
boat race with Yale and Princeton
on Carnegie lake, finishing the mile
and three-quarters in 9 minutes and
1 second. Princeton was second
and Yale last. It was the renewal
of aquatic relations between Yale
and Cornell, which were severed
more than 12 years ago, when Har
vard and Yale and Cornell contest
ed at New London. Cornell won
that race, but there was a misun
derstanding and relations were
severed. Today Cornell took up the
burden where it had been broken
off and administered a crushing de
feat to the blue. The official time
for the race was: Cornwell 9:01,
Princeton 9:10 and Yale 9:45.
A General Outline of the Preliminary
With Walter L. Fisher, secretary
of the interior, in chargo of the work
of reconciling the insurgents, Sena
tor Crane of Massachusetts working
up the tariff strongholds of the. east,
and Postmaster General Hitchcock
looking after the south, tho cam
paign for tho renomination of Presi
dent Taft has been launched along
determined lines. y
' To Fisher has been given th most
important work of the campaign,
namely the pacification of tho in
surgent faction of tho republican
party. It is not going to bo easy to
win over such men as Gifford Pin
chot, James R. Garfield and Senator
La Follotte, but it is now known
that former President Roosevelt is
working quietly but sincerely for the
renomination of Taft.
The president and Roosevelt have
been in constant communication and
tho latter is trying to conciliate the
Senator Cummins, will not oppose
the nomination of Taft. There is
considerable talk that he may be
selected as the running mate of tho
president, and while ho has given
no indication that he would accept
second place, it is believed that he
would not decline if ho were nom
inated. Efforts are on foot to bring
about his nomination.
Tho next surprising development
of tho preliminary campaign is the
sudden animosity of former Speaker
Cannon toward President Taft. It
is said that Cannon will strive to
have a reactionary of the typo of
Vice President Sherman nominated
for the presidency.
The former speaker has not called
at the White House for nearly, two
months, and recently denounced the
president for favoring reciprocity,
which, he said, was a blow at the
republican protective policy.
Cannon has not hesitated to speak
slightingly of the president in pri
vate or public.
The only real opposition to the
renomination of tho president comes
from the supporters of La Follette,
who is prepared to announce his
candidacy for tho presidency at the
Inasmuch as most of the southern
states have gone on record in favor
of a second term for Taft, and New
York,' Pennsylvania, Massachusetts
and other eastern states are for him,
tho consensus of opinion among
politicians in Washington is that
nothing can prevent Taft's name
heading the republican ticket in
Princeton struck the water first,
with Cornell and Yale a second
later. Before the crews had gone
50 yards- Cornell was in the lead
and never relinquished her advan
tage. Cornell settled down to a 34
stroke, with Princeton rowing 36
and Yale pulling a 38. The suprise
of the race was the splendid oars
manship of Princeton. This college
has not had a crew since 1884, but
held Courtney's Ithicans beauti
fully during the early part of the
race. Cornell, in the latter stages,
increased her stroke to 36, and as
they neared the finish point the
two leaders were pulling with long,
steady strokes. Cornell crossed the
line ahead of Princeton by about
two lengths. Yale was almost a
dozen lengths in the rear and only
paddling. Neither of the leading
crews seemed at all fatigued and
rowed to their quarters without

S (By Oscar Brenton.)
What a shamo it is that a nartv
of young folks cannot go for an out
ing without being pestered by a lot
of crooks such as accompanied tho
excursion to Maui last Saturday. I
thought as I sat in tho shadow on
tho voyage back to the city that tho
ono thing lacking to make tho ex
cursion something to bo remember
ed was McDuflio. I would have
enjoyed seeing him take thoso harp
ies by. tho nape of tho neck and
shaking them jointly and singly, as
a terrier would shako a rat and drop
them over tho side. Tho manage
ment of the next-excursion by sea
should see to it that crooks are
News comes from Hilo that tho
chief baker of the Enterprise has
been caught by Marshal Hendry
with opium in his possession. This
does not surprise mo as much as if
I had been told that no opium ever
gets ashore at that port. Why it is
tho easiest .thing in tho world.
True enough the customs officer is
aboard but one man is as smart as
another and maybe smarter. There
never was a customs man who did
not find his equal, in keenness, out of
tho service. Hilo is different in tho
handling of its shipping. The office
there has not as many inspectors
nor as many spies as in Honolulu
so that a man on a ship occasionally
has a chance to make an honest
penny by defrauding tho govern
ment. Down hero thero is aa much
to fear in Breckons as thero is in
the whole customs department of
the Territory and Hilo is getting a
taste of it. Of course there had to
be some ono on the coast to tip
Breckons, and the men who handle
contraband stuff had better make
up their minds that their end of tho
ropo is the shortest. They will bo
landed sooner or later just as suroas
tho pitcher that goes oftenest to tho
well is tho soonest broken. Thero was
a timo when i was not so much of
a crime to bring in a.swag of dope
or even handlo it after it was land
ed. But that was before Uncle took
hold of tho islands and tho peoplo
no longer called them blessed. And
thero wero many ways of bringing
in the stuff from the interior of a
bellows to hollow places in redwood
posts. It was often demonstrated in
the old days that whero there is a
will thero is a way.
I heard something amusing tho
other day in which a young married
man and his wife wero tho leading
charactersi It seems that a chauffeur
who had lost a chanco for a load
spied tho young husband in a pub
lic machino making for tho other
side of tho islojud. It seems, too,
that tho chauffeur overhead some
remarks about a luau and tho good
aftermath that would como to them
when they reached their destination.
With an oyo to business and anoth
er for revenge ho waited until tho
party had had timo to reach the
pali when ho telephoned tho wife
tho circumstances and asked her if
sho was going to the luau. It seems
thero is somo jealousy in her com
position and sho immediately told
him not to tako anyone but to wait
for her. Now, tho rest of it is hear
say so I will not name tho officer to
wh'om sho communicated tho facts
and asked him if ho would not like
to go over and get a caso. It was
in his lino and ho accepted tho job
and-lio found perhaps it was only.
