The Maui Horse Loses
In Race At Honolulu
The Star-Bulletin thus reported the
final race between McPhee'a Mary
Jay and Umpqua, at Honolulu:
Louis Warren's Umpqua not only
beat Mary Jay, belonging to Angus
McPhce, in a match mile race at Ka-
piolani Park Saturday afternoon, but
equalled the time set by Oneonta in
a match race with Satisfax of 1:43 4-5,
a year or more ago. Over five hund
red racing fans were on hand to wit
ness the test.
Instead of the barrier the old-style
running start was used. After two
false breaks, the horses got away to a
fair start Umpqua perhaps a length
to the good. Before the eighth Mary
Jay had forged ahead and up to the
five-eighths held the lead. At this
point Umpqua got her second wind
and forged into the front. It was pie
after that; the Warren horse coming
under the wire eight lengths to the
Charlie Tyler rode the winner,
while Benny Rollins was up on Mary
Jay. It was in June, 1916, that Satis
fax made the mile in 1:40, the best
Hawaiian track time, and later lost to
Oneonta In a match race in which the
time was 1:43 4-5.'
Saturday's race proved that Mary
Jay Is the better horse over the flve
fighths distance, but no speed-ball
over the mile. Billy Lucas had
charge of Mary Jay for the Saturday
race, Angus McPhee having announc
ed his retirement from the racing

The enlistment of the united and
active support of fraternal organiza

and saving is a most hopeful sign.
The fraternal societies of the United
States wield a tremendous influence
and form a body of citizens which is
a great factor in our national life as
well as in their respective localities.
The value of their active cooperation
and assistance in the War Savings
campaign will be incalculable.
