The big tennia meet on, the Puu
nene courts, In which the Coast, Ho
nolulu and local players vied for first
honors, was highly interesting, as had
been anticipated, despite the fact that
the weather was exceedingly fiad
throughout most of the period of the
tournament. It Is doubtful that worse
weather for the pleasures of tennis

and there was considerable question
at the time as to who was to blame
for It. Some of the Maul players
were sure that the Hilo visitors were
to blame, but Mr. G. H. Vicars denied
