Honolulu, June 18. The price
of Hawaiian rice is continually go
ing higher, owing to the scarcity of
field labor and the filling in for
building purposes of large tracts
heretofore used by the Chinese as
rice laud. The Hawaiian grown
rice sells here today at something
ovir $6, a price that is all but pro
hibitive to many of the poor Chi
nese. A competitor that threatens the
rice industry of the islands is the
Japanese rice which comes in great
quantities by every steamer from
the Orient and promises in time to
take the place absolutely of the Ha
waiian grown article. The market
price of this rice in Honolulu today
is $5.20 for the best, or over 80
cents lower than the home grown
product. At this rate, the latter
The inferior grade of Hawaiian
rice sells at about a dollar lower
than the first class and the Japanese
second class rice can be bought for
something over $4. On account of
this difference, much Japanese rice
is being purchased nowadays by

is found to be quite as good as the

1 There are in this country many
j collectors of old race cards, says
. Tid-Bits, and one gentleman nt
I Brighton, who inherited the bisis
I of his store from the late Mr. Pad
I wick, once so celebrated, had up
ward of 5000 of these cards, dating
hack for quite forty years and in
j eluding every classic event during
that period. The late Marquis of
Zetland had the cards of every race
he had ever attended during a very
long career as an owner of horses.
In general, the cards that arc of the
greatest value to the collectors are
those which have been handled by
celebrated persons and which have
their pencil notes in the margin.
Thus, the gem of the Brighton col
lection spoken of is a Derby day
card marked by the young and
luckless Marquis of Hastings, who
came to such fearful ruin on the
very day of the date of the card it
self. This specimen cost its present
owners 30 guineas.
Only lately at the travelers' Club
in London a collection of cards
marked by men who will always be
remembered in the history of the
turf was sold to a Yorkshire brewer,
much interested in racing matters,
for ,300. This same gentleman
not long ago bought a collection of
betting books that had belonged to
celebrities, these including Lord
George Leutinck, Admiral Rous
and Lord Falmouth. A card that
relates to a classic race which some
horse of the century won, and that
is more than 3oyears old, is general
ly worth a five-pound note if it be
in good condition, even though 110
other interest attaches to it. It is
worth stating that one collector of
the caYds sadly alludes to the fact
that the specimens in his possession
have, in reality, cost him. over
$40,000, that being the sum total
of his losses on the races that arc
represented in the card collection.
Knox' Fislilnir Joke.
Attorney-General Knox is as
enthusiastic an angler as any man
in public life in Washington. The
other day he was talking fishing
with a friend who described the
merits of a trout stream in Maine,
where a friend of his had killed 100
fish in a day. Mr. Knox' did not
like this very well, and said that he
was not the kind of an angler who
cared to catch fish whole-sale, but
nevertheless, he added, "when I
drop a line I like to get an answer
