Captain Crozier Tells How He Won
From Captain Harris.
. Tho yacht Hawaii arrived in Ka
hului last Friday evening, and re
main in port till Sunday morning,
when she sailed for Honolulu, on
her return from her winning race
to Hilo with tho Lurlino.
Captain Crozier was quite elated
over his win. as ho beat the Lurline
in her own kind of weather, light
By dousing her lights just at tho
last hour and using all his knowledge
of sailing a yacht to best advantage
Capt. Crozier brought tho yacht
Hawaii across tho line ten minutes
ahead of tho Lurlino which was in
command of Captain Lew Harris.
After the boys went on shore Cap
tain Harris claimed the win, stat
ing that he had got to Hilo two
hours ahead of the Hawaii but the
figures taken by Captain Cplcord
and two quartermasters from the
bridge of the steamer Columbian,
which was lying at anchor in the
bay show that the Hawaii crossed
over at 12 : 34 a. m. and that the
Lurlino followed suit ten minutes
The yachts made an extra long
passage of it as thoy left Honolulu
at three o'clock Saturday afternoon
and did not arrive in Hilo until
Tuesday morning. Crozier gave a
splendid exhibition of sailing and
completely outclassed Harris.
The yachts had an ordinary sailing
breeze until Monday morning and
then they ran into very light winds.
Striking the Hamakua coast Harris
brought the Lurlino in close expect
ing Hawaii to follow him. Instead of
this, however, Crozier kept well out
into the Channel and while those
on tho Lurline thought they were
leaving the Hawaii away behind
she was in reality holding her own
Captain Colcord of the steamer
Columbian undertook to keep a look
out for the boats and stayed up on
the bridge until they came in. Ho
had two quartermasters with him
so that there should be no doubt
as to tho decision being right. Short
ly after twelve o'clock ho sighted
the yachts coming out of the gloom
and at thirty four minutes past
midnight tho Hawaii slipped across
the lino firing her gun as she did so.
Ten minutes later tho Lurline cross-
, ed tho line on tho port side of tho
Where Crozier beat Harris was
that while tho latter had kept to
tho coast all the way along the
former had sized up the situation
better. Just at the last moment and
when the Lurline was looking for
wind tho Hawaii was slipping
through the water under stiff breezo
and sailing right for the lino while
the Lurline was tacking about trying
to get across to a winning position
There remained just ono more
tack to make. Crozier looked at his
chart and saw where a rock was
marked about twenty square feet.
It was either a chance of hitting this
or of losing the race and ho took
tho chance. Tho boat slipped through
tho water. Would they hit the rock
and loso out? This was the thing
that was worrying everyone. "Wear
ship" the cry rang out and round
came tho graceful little yacht. They
had cleared the rock and a few
moments afterwards their winning
gun rang out.

Maui, Without Their Best Ponies Put
Up Desperate Battle.--
Honolulu July 23, 1912.
Oahu 8. Maui 7.
When the man from Hilo was
asked if he considered polo good
sport he replied quickly :
"I ha'e me doots."
To nie it is tho swellest kind of a
function; something greater, as to
fashion, than tho great balls that
are given here during a season, lack
ing only evening dresses for the
ladies. Whatever polo may bo in
India, where I believed it originat
ed, there is not here a function
greater than that at which all Hono
lulu society gathered in Moanalua
field last Saturday.
Tho players were as fit as tho
ponies and better ponies never pranc
ed a field. And how they did go
across as the ball hurtled from one
end or aide to the other. Gay jack
ets and gay costumes. White among
tho ladies predominated but there
were those who wore the colors of
their favorite sides. It was a great
sight and a great game. Personally
I counted two hundred and fifty
eight automobiles and followed the
count with a mental calculation of
tho gato receipts. I figured that
each driver paid his ten dollars for
a position. Figure that out. Then
I estimated the gathering, in autos
and out, at fifteen hundred and put
the receipts for the day ut four
thousand, or more dollars. As a
matter of fact tho receipts were
about fifteen hundred dollars for
there is a reserved section sufficient
to accommodate only eighty auto
mobiles ; the rest just stick around
where thoy can get good holding
It is conceded on all sides that a
better game of polo was never seen
here. And while Oahu won by a
small margin tho Maui boys made
them work for every tally and dur
ing every period. It was a hard
game for the players and it is com
mon remark today that tho quality
of tho play as well as the quality of
the horse flesh was never equalled
in an inter island contest. I talked
with John Fleming before the game
and he gave it as his opinion that
the winners would be playing in
luck; neither side had an advantage
in men or animals and the men who
gave odds in tho betting were taknig
a gamblers chance; the decision
would go to the team that had luck
And Oahu got tho decision with
or without any element of luck. Tho
gameness in tho pulling up won tho
team all sorts of praise after Maui
had Oahu virtually in tho door.
The local team was practically beat
en for at half timo Maui was six to
Oahu three. But tho ten minutes
rest probably saved tho local team.
At tho call of timo they showed
team work that was remarkable for
its exactness. Then Maui was
weakened by being deprived of tho
bervice of three of tho team's best
ponies. All tho way through the
team work was almost' boyond criti
cism and neither side had any tho
better of tho other. Perhaps in the
last half tho team work of Oahu stood
out a bit and tho men showed team
training and each player had his
turn at the spectacular and no
opportunity was lost.
This was tho first big inter Island
polo gamo whero not a man was un
horscd and this may be attributed

That many of tho contests at the
recent Olympic games must have
been of a heartbreaking nature can
easily bo seen by the following des
cription of tho 1500 meter race,
when Jackson made a new world's
Perhaps never before have there
been two such contests as the 5000

gruelling contest from start to finish.

Jackson went all the way round tho
last lap at a terrific pace, passing
tho four men in order to get up
with the leaders. With Kaviat
slightly in advance ten yards from
the tape, Jackson fairly leaped ahead
and fell exhausted into the arms of
his friends. So close was the race
for second place between Kaviat and
Tabor tho judges reserved their de
cision until a photograph of the
finish was developed before announc
ing the second and third man.
Tho final heat of the 100-meter
swimming race was won by the Ha
waiian, "Duke" Kahanamoku.
Hcaly of Australia was second, and

This is one second slower than tho
world's record established by the
