Denervo To Again
Try Welcome Boy
F. II. tocey To Handle Big Bay
MtPhee Denies Rumor Of Sale,
Cut Will Not Enter Him Again
Other Racers Sent Down
Denervo has not been sold. Refut
ing in positive terms the report cur.
rent last week that he had disposed of
Ihe fleet Maui parer to F. H. Locey,
Angva Mcl'hee continued: "Money
couldn't buy that horse. He's no
been sold and he's not for sale. lint
I shall probably never rare him again
personally. I have let Locey enter
him in the Honolulu rare next month,
but Locey Is putting up the entrance
money and will get the purse if he
wins. I'm out of the racing panic as
far as Denervo is concerned."
Mcl'hee says the varying fortunes of
Denervo in his contests with Ilollin-n-r's
Welcome Hoy, are the cause of
his decision. The apparent inability
of cither of these horses to win two
races in succession has begun to look
Mi.-picious to some people, he thinks,
and he doesn't care to go any further
as a consequence.
Denervo lias been at the Kahului
track consistently for several weeks,
being worked out by Locey, who is
confident of winning from Welcome
Hoy a week from next Monday. In
any event the Maui horse made his
easiest winning on the Kapiolani track
and there are a good many who be
lieve he will again.
Ypress and Miss Officious Entered
Hut if Angus Mcl'hee disclaims any
responsibility for Denervo, he does
not, as regards his two runners, Yp
ress and Miss Olliclous. These two
went down to Honolulu last Saturday,
and he bepeves they will give a good
account of themselves against the
Honolulu horses and against the Nev
ada horses which have lately been
brought down from the Coast by John

Residents of Paia, Hamakuapoko,

kick over a new order requiring post
masters at these stations to send all
mail matter deposited in their offices
to Kahului to be routed. The result
is, for example, that tf a letter is

some one in Haiku, that letter must be

its destination until the fol'owing day.
The order has been especially incon

camp very closely, though he carried,
on a long-range inquiry with the pris
oners. Mr. Jarrett is sti.'l firm In his belief
that his honor system of dealing with
he convicts is the proper one, and
that the open air work as at Kula Is
much better than close confinement
s a mode of reformation. Another
adical plan which he has in mind.
and which he expects to put into ef-
ect within a few weeks, is the entire
liminatiou of the time-dishonored

brown, similar to that supplied the

judicial to the convict's self respect,
i thing that it is not des'rable to have
lost if reformation Is to be hoped for.

which took place on Monday afternoon

"FLEXIBLE BUSSES" FOR HILO
"Flexible busses" that is the latest
stunt for Hilo, and it is declared by
the men behind the scheme that they
will have a fleet of the elongated ve
hicles in commission on or about
September 1. The "flexible bus" has
come to stay, say the promoters, and
they win fill a "long felt want" in
the Crescent Bay City.
Six Wheel Automobile
The new kind of bus is a six-wheel
affair and it is composed of the re
constructed parts of a Ford car with
the additional of two extra wheels
that will be attached to the rear end.
The body of the car will be so much
longer on account of the addition of
two wheels and the extension of the
understructure of the wagon for some
feet, that a large number of passeng
ers will be provided with accomo
dation. It is expected that twenty
or so passengers can be carried on
each six-wheeled machine. Hawaii
A 5-cent fare will be charged, and
the busses will have regular runs the
same as street cars. ft
