It Is rumored that things did not
go smoothly In tho commission, and
that report finally submitted was not
rt all what so mo of tho members
wanted. Thus" far, however, nothing
had been openly Bald about these dif
ficulties. It Is beginning to be believed by
thoso conversant with Iho matter that
Honolulu has 'been sacrificed on trio
altar of politics. In other words that
former Governor Carter's fight agamst
Governor Frcar hnB been allowed to
enter Into his work as chairman of
tho commission, with tho result that
tho chances of nny actual good com

stated that about $3000 was spent by
tho commission In Its Investigations:
also that several times that amount
would have been available, for em
ployment of competent assistance to
draft bills or perform other work
that would have expedited tho work
or added to Its value. If tho Govern
or's contingent fund was not suffi
cient, thero Is little doubt that the
amount would readily have been rais
ed from semi-public sources.
It is reported that the matter has
already been taken up unofficially In
the Chamber of Commerce with a
view to seeing whether or not thero
may yet bo time to save tho day, and
assure for Honolulu tho things which

Lester obtained a return match and
twenty rounds resulted In a draw ver

weighed over 190 pounds. In tho lat

Game Good Down Under.
"The game Is good in Australia,
said Thompson, considering the over
plus of boxing material. McVea, Lang'
ford, Porky Flynn, JUu .Barry and
Clabby are all doing regular turns at
"In tho first fight between McVea
and Langford, the lattci was fat when
he entered tho ring. He underestl
mated the Oxnard negro and did not
train as he should havo done. At
that, in my opinion, the worst bo
should havo got was a draw.
"Johnson Deane, the theatrical
man, and a close friend of McVea's,
Is aboard the Marama and received a
wireless after tho Langford-McVea
fight from tho latter stating that he
had lost but would fight again on
May 11. Who hlB opponent will bo
was not stated."
Thompson says that the Australians
are looking forward to tho return of
Tommy Burns and states that ho will
get a fine reception should he elect
to visit Kangarooland again.
He says that Dave Smith and
Hughlo Mehegan arc going to tho
States via England.
Mehegan the Goods.
Mehegan, In Thompson's opinion,
could givo Wolgast a stiff tusslo
though ho doesn't figure that he would
beat the champion. Ho holds tho Aus
tralian lightweight to bo tho classiest
of all tho Australian boxers and says
that he fights American Btyle and Is
particularly good at In-flgbtlng.
Davo Smith, Thompson says, Is a
stand-off boxer of the English school
weighing about ICS pounds. He does
not look to seo him achlovo any greni
umount of sucess In tho States.
Thompson thinks that If Jnck Les
ter takes caro of himself ho will win
fights. Ho has, however, acquired tho
mfortunato habit of neglecting hl3
training and needs a disciplinarian for
a trolnor and manager.
Porky Flynn a Comer.
Thompson states that there aro no
promising heavyweights In Australia.
He thinks very well of "Porky" Flynn,
however, and says that his win over
Jim Barry was an excocdlngly mer)
torlous porformance as tho Chlcngoan
put up tho fight of his Ufo.
"If Flynn Is nursed along for three
cr four years and continues as he ts
doing now ho U tho Ukllest white
man to win back tho world's cham
pionship of nnyono-thnt I know."
