The world's best mark for bowl
ing, although not sounding as a re
cord, was moved 13 points higher
on January 8, when Lindgren and
W. Riohtor dropped 1421 pins in
three games in doubles. A few days
previously Lindgren ami Bangart
scored 1408 pins. The .marks in the
games were phenomenal, each man
bowling well above the 200 mark in
each trial. Lindgren'n total was 717
and Riehtor's 704.
That Battling Nelson, the former
lightweight champion, is fighting
his way into tho grave was an opin
ion expressed in Gotham the other
day by sporting men who saw Nel
son outpointed by One Round Hogan
of California. Tommy Ryan, the
former middleweight champion, de
clared that Nelson is about all in.
"He is only a shell of his former
self, although he still has the heart
of a lion,'' said Ryan. "Nelson
ought to quit tho gamp now and set
tle down. He cannot last much
Joe Thomas, the former welter
weight champion of the world and
a San Francisco pugilistic product,
has retired from the boxing game.
Thomas was advised to take this
step after he was beaten recently in
Oakland, but insisted at the time
' that ho was able to get into condi
tion. More recently, however, he
has been thinking over the matter
and stated that he would try for no
more bouts. Thomas was a popular
fighter in the days just before and
after tho fire. He was regarded as
the Welter-weight champion, but
met defeat, first of all, at the hands
of Stanley Kctchel. Ketchol was nn
unknown quantity when he got that
match with Thomas in Marysville.
It was regarded as easy picking for
Thomas, but much to tho surprise
of the pugilistic fans, Ketchel gave
Thomas the fight of his life, and
almost whipped him. Thomas was
given a shade the best of it in the
decision, and the two men were im
mediately rematchde by Coffrothfor
his Colma arena. They put up the
most spectacular match ever held at
that arena, Ketchel finally winning
in the thirty-second round. That
bout gave Ketchel a reputation and
ho rapidly worked himself into the
front ranks. Thomas claimed that
he was bothered doing the weight,
which was unquestionably true, hut

trouble at Hana.
Word comes that some of the
men working on tho bridges in the
Hana district aro dissatisfied and
gone on strike. It seems that the
contractors wanted to finish up the
bridges on tho.Kailua side first.
They brought tho Hana men to
work there but as the others thought
that work belonged to them, they
persuaded the Hana men to return.
These men were therefore laid off,
and now tho others have struck out
of sympathy. It seems to be a case
of tho men trying to dictate to the
contractors how they shall do their
work. Tho gang working at the
.Pawelo end aro not in sympathy
with tho strikers and have told them
to return to work.
A resolution taking much of the
administrative authority out of the
hands of Superintendent Pope of the
department of public; instruction and
placing it in the hands of tho teach
ers themselves, or at least of the
supervising principals., was passed
at the last session of the school com
missioners. This resolution provides for an
annual meeting of tho supervising
principals just prior to-the summer
meeting of the school commissioners
themselves, and the former will take
up all mutters relating to their work
and tho schools in general and make
recommendations to the legislative
Considerable criticism was aimed
at Superintendent Pope lust week
by Commissioner Stanley and others
for presenting proposed courses of
study to the supervising principals
in the manner in which he did.
This was, Stanley claimed, to pre
sent a regularly drawn up course to
the principals at tho eleventh hour
and ask them to pass it as their own
recommendations, whereas the ob
ject of the school commissioners,
when they had ordered that meet
ing, Ihad been to have tho prin
cipals fully discuss courses of study
and make their recommendations
from that discussion.
Commissioner Aiken also thought
that Mr. Pope was lax in keeping
in touch with the commissioners
over matters relating to the schools,
and referred to numerous incidents
where he had been approached by
principals and teachers for informa
tion and was unable to give any.
The resolution which effects such
material change in tho administra
tion of the department was intro
duced by Commissioner Aiken of
Maui, and as amended and passed,
reads as follows:
"Resolved, That the supervising
principals shall hold a regular an
nual meeting each year in Hono
lulu, just prior to the summer meet
ing of the commissioners of public
instruction for thejeonsideration and
discussion of various educational
problems and to formulate recom

may send in suggestions for con
sideration at these meetings and
may be present to take part in the
discussion by invitation.
"In case of a minority voto on
any subject under discussion, mino
rity reports shall receive dm con
sideration by tho commissioners.
"The questions to be discussed
and voted upon at these meetings
may include tho following:
"(a) Changes and adoption of

and their adoption.
