HONOLULU, May-21. It may
prove a mouse but tins affair of the
Supervising principals vs. Superin
tendent Pope looks very liko a
whale. Up to the present moment
Mr. Copelnnd and party, yclept in
surgents, are disfigured hut still in
the ring jmd going strong in spite
of the combined attack by Pope and
Wood, in the main, with Baldwin
tagging oil behind. Not always a
"Mo too," is Baldwin, either, for
it was he who moved that the nine
ty pagecourse of study which Mr.
Copeland attempted to read be
- squelched, and squelched it was. It
seems as though ever since Pope
was raised to his present post there
has been trouble in the Board of
Education or scandal in schools.
Of 1 course this may have been the
case in the past but if so, it never
came to the surface, so Pope comes
in for a whack.
In this fight his strong right arm
is Wood, ho of the JNormal, who is
not expected to breathe without the
sanction -of Pope. Not that Pope
demands it but because Wood fears
that he might breathe out of tune.
This is a particularly undesirable
state of affairs in a scholastic de
partment of government. lhere is
something in the books of familiar
quotations which says the victory
does not always go to the strong,
but it is the strength of the oppon
ents of Mr. Copeland that will put
him to rout nine to seveii is even
better- than the vote which seated
Hayes in the presidential chair.
Pope being in the chair had an
opportunity, many of them, to sit
down on Insurgent Copeland and
sit he did with a dull thud on sever
Wood charged radicalism and
there is the crux of the question ;
he does uot think that Popo thinks
progression in school affairs is need
ed and to even suggest a change
from the present Pope course of
study is rank radicalism. A study
of Wood would convince anyono
that progress is not in his line. A
conversation with many of the
students in the Normal would back
up the opinion.
The nearest the principals got to
doing anything was accepting a mo
tion to modify, analyze, eliminate
and consider tlio Popo course and
this motion was supported by In
surgent Davis, a backer of Cope
land. The first motion was for a
committee of hvo but tins was
amended by Mis3 Ben Taylor to
fifteen with five sub-committees of
three each to take up the different
sections of the course. That coin-

The meeting was then adjourned

tomorrow afternoon at 2 o'clock".
For a little while it looked as
though some of those taking part
would work themselves up into

this was evidenced Wien Wood de

Opens Sunday With Two Games Aq
The final details for the baseball
season of 1912 were perfected last
week at a meeting held at the town
hall, and everything is bright for a
successful season. The short season
last year seems to have stirred up
fresh enthusiasm in the old fans,
and new fans are being created at
every game. All that was needed
was someone to start the ball rolling,
and then the boys who havo so suc
cessfully carried along baseball here
on Maui-for many years, jumped in
and are seeing to it that we get a

Duke Kahanamoku's wonderful

Swimming Club. This is from the
Philadelphia Ledger of' April 27.

A swimming entertainment that
excelled anything of -the kind over
before given in this part of the
world, because of tho classy charac
ter of the performers and tho work
they did, took place Thursday night
in the pool of the Philadelphia
Turngemeinde. The Philadelphia
Swimming Club, through tho court
esy of tho Turners, was allowed the
use of the pool for an entertainment
for members and lady friends of its
One of the attractions was the
work of Duke Kahanamoku of Ho
nolulu, the great short-distance
speed swimmer, who was sent on
here by members of a Hawaiian
swimming club to bo tried out
against out best swimmers, prepa
ratory to enter tho 100-meter swim
ming event nt Stockholm, Sweden,
at the Olympic games, in July next.
The big bronzed-skin athlete, who
is 6 feet 2 inches tall, weighting 185
pounds, and 21 years of ago, has
been under the care of George Kist
ler, the famous University of Penn
sylvania swimming coach, by Lew
Henderson, a former Philadolphian,
and now in the employ of tho Unit
ed States Government, nt Honolulu,
who brought Kahanamoku here,
and his work Thursday night show
ed wonderful improvement, both in
form and speed, since Kistler has
had him under his wing, for in an
exhibition swim agaiiiRt time for
four lengths of tho Turners' pool
(81i yards,) allowing 5 seconds
start to C. H. Ourbacher, another
fast swimmer, tho Duko won by
three yards in tho romarkablo time
of 42 2-5 seconds, which is 3-5 of a
second faster than tho 80-yard
world's record by Charles M. Dan
L. Akana, tho fast left fielder of
tho All-Chinese team, is certainly a
good booster for Honolulu. He isn't
letting any of tho mainland fans put
it over him with exaggerated chatter
about big league crowds, and comes
right back with a few figures about
Hawaiian baseball that should bring
a medal from the Promotion Com
Tho following interview with L
AKana appears in a Cincinnati pa
bo many peoplo I have met
whilo in tho United States think
that Honolulu is an ancient town,
with cocoanut trees growing in its
streets. Honolulu is as up-to-date
as any town of its sizo in America

peoplo over there could livo without
it. A good weekday Crowd is 2000,

It is a great wonder to mo that Chi

about y ur rabid fans standing in

Band For the Fourth.
The Maui Racing Association iB
in communication with Mr. G. li.
Schrader of Honolulu, in reference
to having him come to Maui on
Julyth, and bring tho band of
which he is tho manager. This
band consists of 20 men, and tho
Association after considering the
matter will be willing to join with
the Maui Athletic Association in
meeting the expenses incurred by
the visit of this band on tho date
above named. From all appear
ences it seems that tho coining cele
bration is going to be one of tho
most brilliant that Maui has ever
enjoyed, owing to tho fact that thero
are a number of social functions
and athletic sports, being planned
for the day, and there should by
all means bo a band of " music f(,r
tho days of festivity, without which
the whole yiffair would be rather
tamo from start to finish. Tho
Foresters aro also planning for a
big luau, and a game of ball on or
about the same dato, nt which time
music will certainly be in order.
We hope that the different bodies
will get together and have the music
by all means.
It is now assured that the I. I. S.
N. Co., will run an excursion
steamer as in former years, thereby
giving the people of Honolulu a
chance to visit Maui during- tho
games and races.
