THE NEW YEAR'S KAC'ES.
A Splendid Day and a Fen Good
The New Year's races at Hoo.lulu
Park were not so well attended as the
usual mid-winter races arc at Hilo.
There was a good i-ized crowd and
all who were in attendance had the
pleasure of sccitig some good races.
The Hilo band proved itself in
every way worthy of the occasion
and did the musical honors to the
satisfaction of the crowd. While
the grand stand was not so well
filled as ordinarily, the carriages in
the center ring were more numerous.
The king of the track New
Year's day was Carter Harrison.
He was iu good form and was well
Iu the first race, a half mile
dash free for all, there were three
entries, Philip, owned by F. Bru
ghelli; Carter Harrison, owned by
I. O'Rourke and Frank S., owned
by Chr. Castcndyk. There was a
misunderstanding in the start by
which Carter Harrison left the
Lothcr two at the post and galloped
around the course alone. The
crowd did ;iot understand that
Carter's rider was walking him
around to win, merely supposing
that the horse was unmanageable
and opposed to returning at the
call of the judge's bell. However,
when O'Rourke claimed the race
there were loud words between
judges, starters and owners of
horses. The announcement came
finally that the race would be run
over. The horses got away in a
bunch and Carter Harrison came
home in the lead in 51 J4; Frank S.
The only harness event of the
day was the 2.18 trot or" pace be
tween Wayboy and Acrobat. Geo.
S. McKenzie driving the former, I.
E. Kay the latter. Wayboy won
in the first two heats rather easily
iu 2.43 and 2.36.
The chief interest of the day was
in the one mile free for ajl, purse
$100 and the Hilo Mercantile Co.'s
cup. The contestants in this race
were Fiero, owned by Aug. Hum
burg, Carter Harrison, and Moir's
Dixie Laud. The cup to pass to
any owner must be won by the
same horse three times. Dixie had
won it twice, Fiero once, and
Carter H. was out for this especial
feather in his cap. The start was
a fair one. Carter Harrison had to
ork for it but he came in first in
50 with Dixie Land a close
.In the five-eighths free for all
the entries were Philip, Carter
Harrison and Frank S. The race
was Carter Harrison's in
Sandwiched in among the above
races were several hotly contested
goes by Japanese owned horses.
All the while lovers of polo were
being entertained by a game in the
center field between local teams.

Tramway Is Under Control of Jtnpld
Honolulu, Jan. 2. The Rapid
Transit-Tramways Company street
railway deal has progressed so far
that the management of the Tram
ways Company was yesterday form
ally turned over to the ' Rapid
Transit Company. The business of
the Tramways Company will be
carried on until the confirmation or
failure of the negotiations now
under way, by the Rapid Transit
The first and most radical move
that will be made by the Rapid
Transit Company is the taking off
of the mule cars on King street and
on the Waikiki Road as far as the
present terminus of the Rapid
Transit line in the McCully tract.
Until the Rapid Transit line is
extended all the way to Kaniolani
Park, the Tramways Corapanv cars
will run on the Waikiki Road from
the preseut terminus of the Rapid
Transit towards Kapiolani Park,
the Tramways Company car meet
ing each of the Rapid Transit cars
at the terminus.
This schedule goes into effect
this morning, the tram cars ceasing
their runs at midnight last night,
so that in all probability the public
has seen the last of -the mule cars
on King street.
Mr. Pain will still remain man
ager of the mule car lines until the
final ratification of the negotiations,
subject to the control of the Rapid
As the two systems will technic
ally be separate, fares as usual will
be collected on both the Rapid
Transit and Tramways cars.
Berrcy's Commercial Agency's
semi-monthly circular on local trade
and stock conditions was issued
yesterday under date of December
31. The circular is as follows:
To Honolulu the year end brings
the Pacific cable. This, it is con
fidently anticipated, will make
enormously for stock dealing, busi
ness generally and tourist travel in
particular. The use of the cable
will be of extreme profit to the
shipping and to the big wholesale
houses. Especially will the whole
sale houses in some instances be
able to curtail expense by lessening
the volume of stock on hand. Main
laud railways and the steamship
companies are now advertising Ha
waii extensively in the magazines,
folders and special publications.
The shore end of the cable was
placed at Sans Souci, Waikiki,
Sunday last, the 28th inst., iu the
presence of a distinguished com
pany. First use of the line will be
exchange of greetings between
Secretary H. E. Cooper for Gov
ernor Dole, who is absent from the
city, and President Roosevelt. The
commercial rate will be 50 cents a
word to San Francisco. Many
houses have already arranged for
their ciphers. The morning Adver
tiser and the Evening Bulletin and
Star all' announce that they will
have an Associated Press report
daily. The Advertiser promises in
addition a special service from Sau
Francisco, and will launch a Sun
day morning feature edition, mak
ing it a seven day paper. All
sections of the community are
highly gratified over the advent of
telegraphic communication with
For- number of purchases the
best years were equalled, but
amounts by detail and iu total were
smaller than for former seasons.
The slowest quarter ol the year
1902 was the third. Iu some re
spects it was discouraging, indeed,
but there is now a more hopeful
feeling all along the Hite. Collec
tion work and effort iu December,
together with attempts at cash
transactions, developed the grim
fact that ready money was actually
scarcer than at any time during the
whole of the twelve months. There
is money iu banks and with other
financial factors, but when it can
be secured by borrowers it seems to
soon find its way back again to the
big sttong boxes
The 6 per cent gold bonds of the
Alexander Young Building Com
pany have been offered on the local
market. The investment is an
attractive one. The hew issue of
Pioneer Plantation Company bonds
have been listed on the Honolulu
Stock and Bond Exchange. There
is said to be now a better prospect
for the sale abroad of McBryde
bonds. Mr. Walter M. Giffard has
sold his seat in the Honolulu Stock
and Bond Exchange to Mr. H. P.
In the stock market here the
month" opened with activity in
Ewa, Olaa, McBryde, Pioneer and
Hawaiian Sugar, with fairly earnest
effort to trade iu Waialua, Rapid
Trausit, Hawaiian Commercial,
Telephone, Hawaiian Electric,
Wilder Steamship, and Inter-Island
Steam Navigation Company. For
nearly three weeks there was busi
ness on the board and between ses
sions uaily. 1 lien mere came, on
the eve of the holidays and the
cabfe arrival, a market lull, but
without changing quotations to
any greut extent. At one time Ewa
reached $24.50, which was the top
figure before the dividend was cut
from 1 to Yi of ,1 per cent a month.
Hawaiian Sugar and Honokaa are
firm and advancing here. Ookala
has surprised many by taking a
rank as an investment stock. Mc
Bryde. is in demand at the bargain
figures, Inter-Island is strong.
Rapid Transit and Oahu Railway
are the solid bonds. The real
market feature is that there is not
now, with the single exception of
the veteran Hawaiian Commercial,
an assessable stock on the market.
