It is gratifying to everyone who is interested in promoting the inter
ests of Hawaii, to read the favorable reports coming from Stockholm,
regarding Duke Kahanamoku. Not alone are his performances in the
water marvellous but his demeanor at all times, has called forth the
highest praise. According to the despatches, he is the lion of the hour
at the Sweedi1 capitol. We cannot possibly over estimate the great
good all this is doing the islands. We doubt not that the work of
Kahanamoku since he left here, has caused more people, to talk about
Hawaii, than has the work of the Promotion Committee during all its
years of labor. Duke should tour Europe and America, after the
Olympic meet, as the money expended in his kind of promotion work,
will be returned to us four fold.
The matter of providing better accommodations for tourists visiting
Maui, who wish to make the trip up Haleakala, and through the
crater, is something which deserves the serious consideration of the
Maui Chamber of Commerce. As it is now, very few tourists feel
equal to the task of making the trip. It is not so much the hardship
of making the ascent, but the lack of proper housing and care at the
rest places along the route, which makes the tourists wince when told
what to expect. The excuse may be put forth that there is not enough
tourist travel to warrant anything better, but if we provide the accom
modation, the tourists will come, but we cannot expect them to come
until we are able to take care of them.
The proposition of delegates from the different commercial bodies of
the Territory going to Hilo as the guests of the Hilo Chamber of Com
merce, with a view to organizing a territorial body is taking definite
shape. It is to be hoped that when these delegates meet they will bury
all sectional differences, and work together for the advancement of a
better and more progreesive community as a whole. What is good for
the whole territory cannot help but benefit each island individually.
There has been too little of this spirit of community interest in the
past, and this has been the principal factor in retarding the develop
ment of the islands at a pace commeasureate with their favorable

Jakie Was Out.
I know right well ye've all heard tell
of Jakie Wieuerkraut,
Th' man that chucked th' ball that struck
th' famous Casey out;
But whilst ye mout hev heard about
that one historic deed,
Ye may not know that Jake also
was famous fer his speed.
Th' wild gazelle kin run right well,
Th' antelope kin lope,
Th' kyote an' th' timber wolf
Kin canter down th' slope;
Th' greyhound, too, kin run a few,
But what'd be th' use?
They'd all be like a busted bike
When Jakie turned 'im loose.
I've seen 'im smash, then drop th' ash,
Au' with one mighty bound,
I've knovved 'im score almost afore
That bat could tech th' ground.
He'd hit a crack towards first sack.
Then make a lightnin' burst
An' overhaul that flyin' ball
Ah', beat it out t first.
But one sad day ther come a play
That Jake hed never reckoned;
He tried t' clout a liner out
An' beat it clean t' second.
He lammed 'er out, a clean line clout,
Th' pitcher straight apast,
An' then ol Jake makes one mistake
By runnin' too blame fast;
Fer while along th' two-base line
Ol' Jake like lightnin' sped,
His own line clout comes sizzlin' out
An' raps 'im side th' head;
An' down goes Jake as cold, by heck
As a cod in Casco bay;
Th umpire pulls his book o' rules
An' promptly stops th' play.
He scans it o'er three times' er more,
He turns it round about,
Then counts off ten, real slow, an then,
Decides pore Jake was "out."

George Horine, the Stanford
athlete now wearing the colors of
the Olympic Club, who recently es
tablished a new world's, record in
the high jump, is responsible for
the information that the American
team to the Olympic games at
Stockholm has in Reidpath, the
Syracuse runner, the most "likely
candidate for the world's mark over
a quarter of a mile. Horine states
that He id path is the only athlete of
the present time who has a chance
to better Maxey Long's record of
forty-seven seconds. Reidpath was
timed in forty-eight seconds at the
American intercollegiates, running
around his opponents on the back
stretch, with a poor track.
Horine states that Reidpath runs
like a deer and is strong and power
ful". According to Horine, Reid
path will yet do 0:46 3-5 for the
quarter and should lower the Olym
pic recoid of 0:49 2-5 for 400 meters
The latter mark is also held by
Long and was made during the
Olympic games at Paris in 11)00.

worked his elbows into the French
man's face and body in the clinches.
In the nineteenth Carpentier's man
ager, believed that Klaus had struck
the Frenchman a foul blow on the
chin with his elbow, jumped into
the ring and threw up the sponge.
Carpentier protested that he was
able to finish, but because f the in
terference of his manager the re
feree disqualified Carpentier.
The dry weather still prevails and
as a consequence the farmers are
asking $2.00 per cwt, for" corn, and
$1.50 for potatoes. Eggs are scarce
Conservative dealers estimate lant
year's crop of corn in Kula at about
50,000 bags, but owing to the dry
weather this year the farmers will
consider themselves fortunate if
they will harvest 20,000.
