Francisco Varona, special agent sent
to Hawaii In the Interest of a better
understanding among the Filipinos
here, declared before leaving the Is
lands: "I am now entirely satisfied
with the labor situation in the Terri

were very bitter about the situation
They told me of poor living conditions,
but their principal complaint was
about deferred transportation when
they were ready to go home. Unable
to get away they were forming quarrel
some groups and were ready to make
trouble. Now, however, since the
Hawaiian Planters have agreed to
pay for the transportation back to
Manila of all Filipinos and their fam
Hies after three years service, the
feeling is very much better and fur
ther trouble is not looked for. There
are about 15,000 Filipino on the

Much scientific curiosity and some
tittle excitement were aroused at
Kealia last week by the report that
underground rumblings of a porten

was working along the foothills up

It Is expected that remittances to

Dinner Bell's backers and he and his
friends. have a neat little stake for a
rainy day. Golden Spray took the
lead at the start and was never head

his Jockey had several opportunities to
pass the Fernandez stallion but 'that
ue jockey was lacking in nerve to try
to ptiBh through the opening between
Golden Spray and the rail. One local
racing fan expressed the sentiment
of a great many people who .saw the
race when he said that the only rea

Johnny Fernandez made a statement
before the race that it was Golden
Spray's last race, win or lose. After
the race he ran Sunday the old horse
deserves to be retired to the greenest
pasture that Johnny can find.
Several of the Kapaa homesteaders
went to the cleaners after the mile
and a sixteenth romp.
David Luke's quarter horse showed
that she Is in a class by herself when
she beat Tashima Boy in the final race.
There was plenty of daylight between
the two horses as they flashed under
the wire. .
Luke's horse was the favorite in the
second race but as plenty bad been

there was very little money to be
Johnny Malina and Mistaii Johnson
furnished the comedy relief for the
crowd. Johnson was a heavy verbal
backer of Dinner Bell while Johnny
was financially interested in Golden
Spray. As usual Johnson had plenty
to say befre the race but Johnny got
his goat In his usual efficient manner
after the race was run. JohnBon was
overheard to say. "I never! All he
could say aftah the race was 'Ding
Dong, Dinner Bell' ovah and ovah
again. Honest! Ah nevah got so
sick of one man' in mah life befo!".
The unofficial time in the quarter
is said "to have been twenty two and

truth in this report Luke's little mare
will surely bear watching. For when
they step the quarter In that time on
the Waipouli track they are coming
rather close to some world record.
Dinner Bell's backers have formed
another combination and with another
Jockey up hope to wipe the defeat.

says that he has another horse in his
stable by the name otBrldgeplayer
