The Passing of an Emperor.
THE passing of the Emperor of Japan, which, according to the
despatch"" seems to be expected at any hour, will mean much
to that empiiv Practically all thai. Japan is today both com
mercially and politically, . is come to her during the reign of the
present monarch. He and his noble wife have done much to lift the
masses out of their former ignorance, and place them on an equal foot
ing with their brethren of other lands.
Still many of the traditions, which have been handed down for cen
turies in this ancient empire, still live. Men who have had their
learning in the old schools, and by whom the emperor was surrounded,
cling to them, and it has been an uphill fight for the younger and
more progressive element in the nation to carry them along in their
more modern tendencies.
With the coming of the new emperor, many of these old customs
will be cast aside forever. He is a bright, broad minded, wonderfully
acute young man. His associations have been all men of the modern
school. He speaks English and ' French fluently, and is said to espe
cially enjoy the society of foreigners. All his tastes and tendencies
are democratic in the extreme. .
The coming of such a man into the power which lavs in the hands
of the Emperor of Japan, cannot help but continue to increase the pres
tige and good feeling of that nation among the powers of the earth.
A work which was started and nobly performed by his illustrious
Retarding Spark Lever.
"Many owners have not taken the
time nor pains to understand why
spark levers should be retarded for
pulling and advanced for speed
work," says S. G. Chapman, the
Hudson distributer. "As soon as
the motor slows n little in going
up hill retarding the spark enables
more power to be obtained from the
motor at this slow speed, that is to
say, if the spark is not retarded the
motor will go slower than if it is re
tarded. Do not retard the lever to
the utmost under these conditions.
On the contrary, retard the lever
just far enough so that the knock
ing or poundidg ceases. Retarding
the spark to the proper position
causes the maximum pressure of the
explosion to occur at the best point
of the stroke.
"To slow the motor cut off as much
mixture as the throttle allows, then
slow the motor still further by re
tarding the spark, but on no account
retard the spark fully when the
throttle is well open for the purpose
of slowing the motor.
"When the spark is advanced too
far with the motor running slowly
the explosion takes place before the
piston has reached the end of its
compression stroke, thus giving it a
tendency to run backward. The
momentum of the motor, of course,
forces it forward past the dwad cent
er, thus placing undue strain on the
bearings, causing considerable loss
of power and a knock in the motor.
If the spark is too much retarded
when the motor is running rapidly
the explosion occurs so late that it
finds the piston part of the way down
on the powerstroke."

Thirty tramps rounded up recent
ly in Plymouth, Pa., were trotted
out on the baseball Held by Burgess
Morris, divided evenly., told by his
honor that the winning aggregation
was to be well fed and ordered from
town, while the others were to go
back to the lock-up and remain pris
oners for two days, putting iii the
time at work on the streets pound
The Burgess called one set the
"Never Works'' and the others the
"Toil Fearers " He umpired the
game and gave directions that nine
innings be played. The "Xevir
Works,'' lirst at bat, pounded the
hall so fiercely that a dozen runs
came over the plate, but the "Toil
Fearers" tied the score in their half.
The third inning was a repetition
of the others, the hoboes resorting
to rough-house tactics to gut enough
runs to win the game. This innin
ing ended: "Never Works" G,
'Toil Fearers" C
The fifth inning was a siugfest
for the "Never Works." They got
over ten runs, when the ''Toil Fear
ers" took their turn at bat. This
crowd chased home nine runs. Be
cause of the excessive heat the Bur
gess ended the game, declaring the
Never Works'' victors by a score
of 43 to 38.
Both teams were marched back to
jail. When the crowd got there he
fed them, as he promised, and de
clared that inasmuch as the sun was
too warm to permit him to see the
game to a tinisl!, he decided, to re
lease every one, with the under
standing that they were to leave
town ten minutes after their meal
and not show up again for a period
of at least another year.

to the perfect knowledge the men
had of the game- There were no
intentional fouls and atithe close
the umpire remarked that if there
were any they were unobservable.
Following the game there was a din
ner at the Rathskeller when all the
conventions were forgotten Victors
and vanquished enjoyed the repast,
the music, the sayings and the
well, let it be another story.
The game up to half time saw
Maui playing rings around Oahu.
The local team didn't seem able to
get going, and appeared to be suffer
ing from a bad attack of stage fright.
Frank Baldwin, the most dangerous
hitter on the Maui team, was left
practically alone, to get off with
spectacular runs and marvelous shots
that kept the ball perilously near
the blue goal. Walter Dillingham,
usually the coolest and most reliable
of players, was missing easy black
hands, and wasn't paying anywhere
near to form. Arthur Rice was bad
ly off, and Harold Castle seemed to
be having all sort of trouble with
his mounts, which kept him out of
the game a good part of the time.
All the more credit then, for the
line brace and ultimate victory. A
team that can pull itself together
ami deliver the goods against odds,
is a good team to tie Up to in the
And all credit to the losers, who
curried their keen disappointment
behind the smiles of true sportsmen,
and who didn't beef over the hard
luck which kept three of their best
ponies out of the game at a time
when they were most needed. In
dividually, as good fellows, and col
lectively as good polo players, the
men from Maui deserve the highest
It was not until the seventh
period that the crowd woke up to
the fact that Oahu had a chance,
and that the men were making one
of the finest fights ever seen on a
polo field, at home or abroad. Play
started with Oahu at the big disad
vantage of knocking uphill, but
right here the tide of victory turned,
with the scoring of the game's most
Soon after the throw-in Maui
worked the ball down to the lower
goal, and threatened at any mo
ment to put it through the sticks.
It was hit sharply toward the Wai
kiki side-boards, and in a flash
Harold Castle was on top of it, fur
the minute clear of the field. He
gave it a mighty crack that lifted
the white villow high in the air,
and hit again for good distance be
fore David Fleming, the Maui back,
reached the ball and stopped it with
a back-hander, which also sent it
into the air. Sam Baldwin was
thundering along behind his team
mate, and as the ball rose off Flem
ing's stock, he made a desperate
pass at it in mid-air. The odd
chance in a hundred came of the
ball striking the cane of Baldwin's
mallet and falling just in front of
Arthur Rice, who was the third
galloping Oahuan of the line. Rice
hit with all his might, but the ball
curved even nearer the side-boards,
and went bounding and hopping
toward the line, . but far away from
TOOK LONG CHANCE.
And then Arthur Rice made one
of those rare shots that so seldom
come when really needed. Lean
ing forward in his saddle and
steadying his pony for the final
effort, the Oahu back hit a mighty
stroke under his pony's neck- So
sharp was the angle that the stick
bent almost double as the cane
brought up against his mount's
neck. The ball quartered for the
white posts, with three Maui men
almost on top of it, and trickled
over the coveted line as the foremost
man reached out for it. Not until
the goal judge threw up his arm

did the crowd that had been follow
ing the rapidly changing play
in breathless silence realize that it
was another score.
The close of this seventh period
saw the wildest play of the game.
There were several minutes of play
remaining after the Baldwin-Castle
score, and Oahu drove the ball to
the upper end of the field, and
made a desperate effort to score
through the, mauka goal, which
would have tied the score and given
