PRIZES FOR THE
Xigel Jackson was around all ot yes
terday hustling up prizes for the Ha
lehvn Marathon, and last night report
ed excellent progress Although the
merchants of tho city were hit pretty
heavy Inst year for prizes and con
tributions, they seem to take kindly
to the big Marathan idea Tho prizes
secured are not expensive, but will
bo numerous in order that every man
making tho distance will bo reward
ed In some way
The intention had been to hold a
meeting last night and talk further
over the plans; but it was deemed
best to wait until success in the matter
of prizes Is fully assured.
Jackson claims that forty-five run
neus have expressed a desire to make
the race, but it is not likely that any
thing like that number will try It
A meeting of the greens committee
of the Honolulu Golf Club is being held

ands as ballast by the schooner Flaur
ence Ward has been acquired by the
club and will be used to good pur
pose on the links In a couple of
weeks (barring further heavy rains) j
the grounds will be in fine condition. !
.The rains of the past several weeks
has played havoc with golf and up
set all plans. The links at the Coun
try Club and Moanalua have been ren
dered useless, and Hallelwa has been
little better a part of the time.
OTHER GAMES IN
Another game in the match hand
ball series was played off at the Y.
M. C. A. yesterday afternoon, and it
was a good one from start to finish.
The contest was between Cushlngham
and Ewaliko, and resulted in a score
of 45 for the former to 42 for the
latter. It is plain from the score that
the battle was a good one.
This afternoon, beginning at four
o'clock, there will be two games play
ed off, and both of them promise to
be fast and furious. The first will be
between Fook On and St. John, and
the second between Sing Hong and M.
G. Johston. RU of these players are
veterans and they may be depended
upon to play tho game to the limit.
Dr. Hand requests It stated that tho
public is cordially invited to witness
the contests this afternoon, as well
as the remaining matches of the series.

The annual meeting of the Hawaii
Yacht Club will be held in the Mc
Candless building on the evening of
February 4 at 7 o'clock. Reports

suing period elected. The meeting

of touching shoulders in some time.
On the evening of February 10 the
annual banpuet of the club will be
given at the Young Hotel. All mem
bers and a number of invited guests
will bo present.

The Diamond Head Athletic Club
held a meeting in tho Odd Fellows
building last night nnd finished up a
large lot of routine business. The at
tendance was quite complete. Presi
dent L. Pcitrio was In the chair and J.
K. Clarke officiated as secretary.
Extraordinary matters taken up was
a letter from the floral parade com
mittee, inviting tho club to put a float
into the big affair of February 22.
Something comical was suggested. The
matter was fully discussed but was ob
jected to on the ground of the large
expense. Everyone present expressed
a desire to assist the parade program
in any and every way, but did not feel
that the treasury of the club would
stand the outlay.
A proposal of Prof, Baron to have
the club rent a portion of the Aloha
boat house, now occupied by him, for
club purposes was also turned down,
although tho proposition seemed de
sirable in several respects. The mem
bers of the club felt, that as most ot
them belonged to one or the other of
the boat clubs the move would meau
too large extra expense for the benefits
to be derived.
The reports showed the club to be
in fine shape in every way and tho
members are very enthusiastic as to
The surfing program to be offered
the next Cleveland party less than two
weeks hence will be .far more elaborate
than the one attempted for tne crowd
coming via- the Orient. The experiences
of the former attenrpt taught the par
ticipants a number of things, and the
next time they will be prepared for
the real business.
Mr. Ford is in charge of the program
and Is working it up in such way that
it cannot be a failure. He is being
ably assisted by the members of the
Outrigger Club, who are better .pre
pared than ever for a showy series ot
As before, the contests will be for
.the Clark cups. Other prizes will also
be put up with a view to making the
events the mope exciting.
It is stated that Mons. L. P. Bonvil
laln, who is here representing Pathe
Freres, the famous French motion pic
ture company, is deeply Interested In
the subject of surfing and will take
a number of films for display in for
eign lands. He will take pictures on
ordinary occasions and also on the
day of the special program for the
Clevelanders. The Outrigger Club will
have the use ot these pictures for
a while before they are taken away.
The San Francisco Examiner of Jan
uary 23 says:
A conference will it is expected, b
held today between Glen R. Curtlss,
the aviator, Professor John J. Mont
gomery of Santa Clara College ana
Raymond R. Blackeslee, a New York
attorney representing Curtlss in In
junction proceedings which the latter
Is contemplating against the Wright
brothers. It Is believed by Curtlss
and Blackeslee that Montgomery's pa
tent for curved planes for airships
antedate all other patents and that
the original "bird man" was a Call
fornian. It Is understood that Montgomery
would have taken no action at this
time to establish his claim to priority
ot invention except for the .fact that
the Wrights had enjoined Cuirtisa
about six months ago Montgomery dis
covered a methhod of rectifying an
alternating electric current by means
of a simple device, and since then ho
has been occupied in perfecting his
contrivance to the exclusion of other
One who Is acquainted with Profes
sor Montgomery's discoveries said yes
terday: . "Tho Wright, brothers, wltn all oth
ers who havo succeeded in navi
gating tho nir, use in the construction
of .their heavler-than-alr contrivances
tho wasped and curved wing surface.
These two formations were perfected
by Professor Montgomery and most of
the Ingenious dovices by which tho
proportions woro maintained were se
cured by United States patents.
"The wholo structure of the piano is
planned after that of the wing of a
bird and tho curvo by which tho
equilibrium is maintained or secured
is the result of years of investigation
and expuerlment by which tho correct
curve ratios were obtained.
"It is explained by Professor Mont
gomery that tho beginner In aviation
sinrts with a flat-surfare wing, believ
ing it to be the correct solution, but
soon finds a curve necessary. Then It
becomes Incumbent on the experiment
er to find ,tho nature or curve neces
sary and eventually bo arrives at the
conclusion that a copy of tho wing of
the bird is tho proper solution.
'Thls is the parabolic curvo and
Professor Montgomery's invention is
covered by his patents and the only
