THE GARDEN ISLAND, TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 1, 1921
ROPING CONTEST
EXCITES INTEREST
(Continued from Pago One)
boy on the Tarker ranch was the
winner, while Archie Kaua. of the
same place, was the winner of the
third. Furdy came to Kauai after
this and worked on Princeville ranch
for Mr. Sanborn. As several of the
cowboys who are now on the Prince
ville plantation could hold their own
with Purdy while he was here, it
can be seen that Kauai has champ
ionship material of its own.
Princeville is now busy selecting
their entry and with the wealth of
material they have, it is no simple
matter to pick the best man. There
is no doubt in the minds of the ex
perts that the Princeville entry will
be heard from in this contest..
There is no doubt that Charley
Huddy will be the Makee entry.
Charley was one of the representa
tives in the last contest held in
Honolulu and were it not for somo
hard luck he would have taken first
prize. Charley was using a horso
that had already been used by threj
other contestants, and although hi
threw his steer in less time than
any other contestant, 'the horse
would walk upon the steer and allow
him to get up. Charley had to
throw the steer two more times
ar.d each time the horse would not
hold him. Charley intends to use
his own horse in the Legion's con
test and ns his horse has had plen
ty of experience in holding roped
steers, Charley promises that he
will have no trouble on this ac
count. Ted Blackstead is expected to be
the Ilanamaulu entry and as Ted Is
an old timer at the game and has
had plenty of experience in roping
there are many who think that his
time will be among the best of the
day.
Lihue will be represented by John
ny Malina and if Johnny ropes like
he plays polo there will be a worried
bunch of contestants when he takes
his turn. A few people think that
Johnny has become too heavy to
take part but he is full of confidence
and is figuring already how he is go
ing to spend the prize money.
Gay and Robinson are expected
to enter a man and if some roping
that the writer saw in a corral at
Makaweli is any criterion, the east
side is going to have quite a job
on its hands to keep the title from
going over to the west end.
The first entry for the steer tying
contest is Kekaha plantation, who
has entered William Kapahu Llli.
considered one of the best ropers in
the Hawaiian islands. He will use at
his mount. Mr. Danford's personal
saddle horse (Casey). This is going
to be a combination hard to beat.
Mr. Baggott, who is In charge of
the rodeo part of the program,
would like all teams who expect to
enter to notify him as soon as pos
sible. Also he would like to receive
one entry for the steer tying from
Kapaa, and one from Grove Farm.
The steer tying is limited to six
men, and it is desirable that those
wishing to enter to announce their
intention as soon as possible.
In addition to the cash prize for
the champion cowboy team, each man
of the winning team will receive a
solid gold medal, hung on a watch
fob with the inscription "Champion
Cowboy Team Armistice Day, 1?'21
The committee will give a cash
prize of one hundred dollars to the
winner and fifty dollars as second
prize. The winner will also be giv
en a silver-shield that will be put
on the back of the cantle of the sad
die and will be suitably engraved
to show that he is the champion
steer roper of Kauai for the year
1921.
To make the rodeo complete the
committee has planned a series Qf
cowboy team sports. Each team will
consist of four men and it is hoped
that each district will be represent
ed by a team. The events will con
Blst of a potato race, a. stake race,
a mounted tug of war and a relay
race. The committee have decided
that it is only fitting that a medal
should be given to each member of
the winning team, showing that
they are the champion cowboy team
of Kauai. In addition there will be
a cash prize or twenty dollars per
man fur first prize and ten dollars
per man lor second. Entries are
expected from Hanalei, Kealia, Kawai
hau, Waipouli, Hanamaulu, Lihue
Grove Farm, and perhaps Gay and
Robinson.
To wind up the day the commit
tee will put on a maverick race. Ev
ery cowboy on the field will be eli
gible. A steer will be given a start
of fifty yards and then everyone
will chase him. The first man to
rope him around the horna or neck
will win. It will not be necessary
to throw him.
The gymkhana, which will fol
low the steer tying contest, will be
open to any rider on the field.
The gymkhana will consist of four
events. A dressing race in which I
the contestants will ride 60 yards,
dismount, put on a holoku, a sun
bonnet, put up a parasol, remount
and ride back to the start.
The egg and spoon race - will be
the second event. Each rider will
carry a china egg in a spoon, for
fifty yards. In case the rider drops
the egg he must dismount and pick
it up.
The doughnut eating contest will
be the third event. Each rider will
ride fifty yards and eat a doughnut
suspended from a string without the
use of his hands. When he is finish
ed he will ride back to the starting
point.
The last event of the gymkhana
will be the pig sticking contest. One
will draw a pig consisting of a sack
filled with straw. He will be given a
lead of 25 yards. Each rider will
be provided with a spear and will
endeavor to spear the pig. The first his flags. He was considerably dum

ONE ON SLOGGETT
Falling in line with the "display
your flasr Idea" that someone sug-j
gested tor the two days while our;
distinguished guests were on the '
island, H. D. Sloggett of Lihue put '
up a beautiful big United States flag '
on the staff of his Grove Farm
Home and underneath it he had
floating the British Union Jack.
People passing by wondered long
and frequently Just what the slgnifi-
cance of the English
flag at this
time could be. After the two had
been up two days one of Mr. Slog
gett's friends asked him the where
fores. "It's a fine Hawaiian citizen you
are,'' Sloggett replied, "not to know
the flag of Hawaii. I am ashamed
of you. Just look at It."
Suiting his own action to his
words, Mr. Sloggett glanced up at
mistake. I had the three flags, Unit
ed States, British and Hawaiian all
flying together a short time ago.
The Hawaiian and union jack look
much alike. When I gave them to
the boy to put up yesterday I was
in a hurry and didn't notice my
mistake.
And that's how the union Jack
came to take the place of the Ha
waiian flag on the flag pole during
the breakwater celebration.

ADMISSION:
JAPAN'S PATH OF HONOR
(From New York Times)
Japan comes into the family of ex
panding nations some 200 years too
late. While she Blept the world was
parceled out, put under title and oc
cupancy. The lands she craves and
needs are to be had only by dispos
sessing present owners, and it Is not
in keeping with the modern spirit
that she be permitted to secure her
great commercial outposts, as she
plainly purposes to secure them, by
seizure. That was the old buccaneer
ing way to get colonies, held in due
respect long as no one called it in
f question. The terrible crash that for
ever ended the Drang nach Osten and
Berlin-Bagdad dreams brought that
era to a , close and established the
principles of the later international
morality, already even then coming in
to authority. Self-determination, tho
consent of the governed and the
equality of nations great and small
annul the iron law of might.
Why does Japan keep to the old
abandoned way that brings upon her
discredit and engenders distrust
when there lies open before her tho
new way that will win her the con
fidence and sincere friendship of all
other nations? Why should she not
discard all thought of expansion by
conquest and intrigue, and secure by
fair dealing the colonies she requires
for the overflow of her population
and the building up of her commerce.
The Japanese are a proud people.
They feel that the astonishing prog
ress - that they have made in the
short seventy years since wtern
civilization knocked at her door is
proof of a racial capacity and skill
and genius that give them title to a
place among the foremost. But lo
comotives and bridges and steel-
plants are not the greatest work of
men. Battleships are very far from
being his noblest work. In all these
Japan excels. Let her now, if she
would win her way unchallenged to
high consideration among nations.
bring forth a work of the spirit,
greater than any of the hands; let;
her, who has been a follower, an
imitator, become a leader, seizing the
torch of civilization from the hand
of the foremost and bearing it on her
self. It would transform and exalt
her could she give this conspicuous
sanction to that "prescription of op
en, just and honorable relations be
tween nations" which the high con
tracting parties of the Versailles
Treaty pledged themselves to pro
mote. AT
LIHUE ARMORY
ONE DOLLAR
WAR TAX PAID
Specifically let Japan get the ter
ritory she needs by fair bargaining.
It is admitted everywhere that room
for growth Is the vital need of her
national life. In her home land she
has a population of nearly 400 to
the square mile. It is true that Bel
gium is prosperous with 650 to the
square mile, but Belgium has no high
mountains) while much of the area
of Japan is given over to uninhab
itable peaks and slopes. It is the
wish and aim of the Japanese to
extend their empire by colonial
growth, by securing territory abroad
to which the surplus population can
be transported, ultimately to become
purveyors of raw material to the
home manufactures, and, at the same
time, furnishing a market for their
products.
The question at Once arises: Where
is there any considerable territory
open to peaceful and honorable ex
ploitation by Japan? It is not im
perative that her colonies should lie
near her island empire. Germany's
vision and plans of penetration belt
ed the globe; her merchants were
quite at home, not only in Russia,
hut in remote Brazil and the Pacif
ic islands. There are broad domains
in Eastern Siberia and in Mongolia
that' might be found available for
Japan. Manchuria is practically In
her hands but pot by the cleanest
titles. Perhaps China might consider
formal conveyance. It would be bet
ter to sell at a round price than to
surrender on the terms that Japan
has set for herself. In Africa room
might be found for Japan, possibly
by transferring some of the mandat
ed German territory. And there are
immense regions in central Asia,
sparsely populated by tribes incap
able of progress and production.
If Japan would cease her naval
expenditure of $600,000,000 a year,
she would soon have a fund big
enough to give her high standing in
the international real estate market.
The objection instantly urged is that
while land is a commodity, the hu
man beings inhabiting it cannot be
bought and sold in this way. Always,
the consent of the inhabitants is as
sumed as a pre-requisite. It would be
obtainable in some of the territories
we have mentioned, If Japan went
about getting it in the right way.
There's the rub. the whole case for
or against a peaceful and unopposed
policy of expansion for that em
pire. Japan must be reborn in grace be
