What the Wrestlers, Boxers and Base
Ball Artists Are Doing.
Antono Kaoo says: I'm going
to run in the Muui marathon. If I
win I'll get what's coming to me,
and that's more than I have done
in Honolulu, sometimes. Wo should
like to have Kaoo, hut this race on
tho Fourth is for Maui Amateurs,
and if Kaoo entered ho would scare
tho others out.
Yesterday afternoon Charles Bar
ron dispatched a letter to P. A.
Rohrabachcr, who is at present
residing at Wailuku, inviting him
to take part in tho marathon race
which Barron is hoping to pull off
on July 2d at Athletic Park" Rohra
bacher is the "dark horse" whom
Barron spoke of earlier in tho week,
but yesterday Barron declared his
identity. Rohrabacher is a Gorman,
and has run in several marathons
in San Francisco. Ho has records
to substantiate his claims, and will'
no doubt be an additional attraction
if he agrees to take part in the race
proposed. Star Barron certainly is
tho candy kid with the hot air, as
Rohrabachcr says ho never ran a
marathon or any other .distance in
George Moriarty is ono of the De
troit players who. believes that it be
hooves the Tigers to win every pos
sible game they can right now, if
thoy are to keep ahead of tho
world 'b champion Athletics. "Lots
of people seem to think that we
have the pennant already won,"
said Moriarty, "but I don't believe
any of the boys on our team feel
that way. Down back there in the
road there's a cloud of dust, and
occasionally when that dust cloud
lifts you can, by looking closely,
make out the tall form of one Cor
nelius McGillicuddy. There arc
other dust clouds back tlicro in tho
road, and thoy are likely to get,
nearer to us as the season advances.
Of course, wo have a pretty nice
lead at present, but these extra vic
tories will come in a littlo handy
later in the season when tho other
championship contenders settle
down." Moriarty is playing a won
derful game at third this'year, and
is again exhibiting that splendid
pluck that characterized his work
in the championship series of 1909,
when, regardless of cuts and bruises
innumerable, he withstood the sav
age attacks of the .Pirato base run
When Papke was in disgrace in
Francisco owing to a bad-look-.
ii5 fight with Joe Thomas, ho was
asked how ho accounted for the fact
that .in some of his fights ho seemed
the personification of force and
speed, while in others he was aa Blow
and inoffensiyo as the traditional
ice wagon. "I can't tell why it is
so, but I'n willing to admit it's a
true bill," said Papke. "There are
times when I simply can't get start
ed, try as I may. I was that way
with Joe Thomas and I was that
way when I fought Ketchell both
times in San Francisco." From
which it will bo seen that Papke is
quite ready to admit that his ring
performances are not by any means
of an even character. It was often
Baid that Ketchel was tho only man
of his poundage Papko really feared
and for this reason, now that Ket
chel has passed away, it is believed
Papke will mako things hum in tho
middleweight division when ho re
turns to his native land. But it is

Death Claims Clarence 1H. Roberts From
a Sorrowing Community. .
The shadow of death never fails to
casts a gloom over a community, but
there are circumstances which causo
that gloom to deepen. It is proba
ble that never before in Wailuku has
there beon such a widespread feeling
of sorrow, at loosing a fellow citizen,
as last Monday when the remains
of Mr. Roberts were followed to the
grave. Everyone in tho community
know him, and to him was to honor
and respect him. Those under him
on tho plantation, both Orientals
and Europeans loved him, while
his . associates looked upon him as a
true man. Mr. Roberts gave up
only a few days before he died, and
here again his character was shown.
Ho had been ailing a long time,
but rather than alarm his friends
ho bore his sickness in silence until
he could bear it no longer. An
operation was performed, but his
system ha4 been too much weak
ened, and ho could not rally,sufll-
ciently to recover. ,
Clarence Melbourne Roberts was
born at Glenwood, Yarmouth
County, Nova Scotia, December 7th,
1870. He began -work first as a
carpenter, then was in the express
business, and for several years was
connected with tho traction lines in
San Francisco. Ho came to tho
Islands about ten years ago, was
five years at Waipahu, Oahu, on
tho Ewa plantation, and on April
5th completed five years of service
with tho Wailuku .Sugar Company,
having been head luna of the Wai
kapu division during this time. He
began his work here under tho
management of Mr. C. B. Wells.
In June 1910, Mr. Roberts was
elected to tho trusteeship of the
Wailuku Union Church of which ho
was a faittuul memncr. no was
also a member of the Golden West
Lodge of Independent Order of Odd
Mr. Roberts leaves a wife, a son,

Racy Paragraphs From the Capitol On
(By Oscar Brenton.)
I notice that tho name of Mrs.
John Hall is not on tho list of
teachers assigned to schools in tho
Territory. This i3 the lady who
walked out of Kalihiwaena school
tho other day when Principal Cox
threw at her" a rather sarcastic,
not to say impertinent note, after
he had been sustained liy tho Com
missioners of Education. Taking
it by and large this is rathor rub
bing it in. All of tho teachers at
Kalihiwaena woro asked to contri
bute literature bearing on tho disci
pline of tho school. I have been
told that Mrs. Hall was tho last to
yield, holding out until Superin
tendent Popo insisted that sho send
her opinion in writing for tho good
of tho service. "I know not what
the truth may be; I tell it as 'twas
told to me."
I note, now, that Secretary Gib
son says tho letter was more in do
tail than any from the other teach
ers, so much in detail that it, ap
parently, did not please the powers.
At all events when it came to pass
ing out positions for tho season to
como Mrs. Hall was not in the run
ning and this after Pope had com
pelled her to write an honest criti
cism. Tho trouble Beems to be that
Cox is ovoreupplied with friends
and Popo is not. Hence the pro
tection given by tho latter to Cox.
No one questions tho ability which
Mrs, Hall has. There are few who
do not recognize her as ono of tho
most capable teachers in the county
but ability has no chanco against
pull where tho head of tho depart
ment has tho last say.
I heard something from a Comp
ton sympathizer that docs not sur
prise mo in tho light of events sub
sequent to her "advance on Rich
mond.'' It seems that the depart
ment has to pay her a salary up to
the end of August. Sho was en
gagqd for the Hilo school and was
transferred at tho will of tho depart
ment, rather than on her own
request. Of tho two schools offered
she selected Waialua becauso she
liked tho principal and accepted the
assignment. Beforo going down, I
understand, she has told this to her
friends Mr. Gibson was Bent to
tho principal with tho information
that tho assignment had been made
but that if sho did not want her sho
had only to mako a protest to Popo.
And she says Pope sent Gibson to
Mrs. Churchill with that message.
If any part of that is true it seems
to mo Popo must bo a bad one. Ho
has been proven unable to copd
with tho duties of superintendent of
instruction. As a teacher in tho
College of Hawaii ho did well and
should return thero.
