1 Hilo's Fourth of July celebration
I was a complete success in every
detail business was suspended from
noon Friday July 3, and all classes
turned their attention to the busi
ness of commemorating the day of
American Independence. Weather
was perfect and nothing interfered
with the carrying out of the exten
sive program arranged by the vari
ous committees. The Cowboy
Congress, the races both Friday
and Saturday, the parade , and
sjecch making at Fish Market
square, the ceremonies of breaking
sod for the Kohaln-IIilo Railroad,
the grand barbecue and the two
nights show by the Elks minstrels
were all brought off without a
hitch and the crowds ever' where
present, bore testimony to the loy
alty and good spirit of the people.
Fridav afternoon was preliminary
to the following day which was
crowded with events. A mass of
nearly two thousand people were at
the race track filling the grand
stand and crowding the quarter
stretch. The main attraction was
the roping of wild ctittle and the
breaking of bronchos.
In the center field there had been
erected a strong corral in which
were huddled a score of fretful cows
and steers. About the enclosure
were, a dozen cowboys from Island
ranches with ponies saddled and
lariats ready. One at a time the
bovine would be cut out and turned
loose. He would bound across the
field with the wide awake cow
puncher close upon his trail. A
swish of the lariat a clever turn and
down would go the steer. The
trained ponies would hold the -victim
with a taut rope while the
rider dismounted and tied the legs
of the prostrate steer. Then a
flourish of the hand would an
nounce that the deed had been

being 1.04, 1.13, and 1.45 respec

tana, each made a miss.
The broncho busting was excit
ing enough for anybody. The
bronchos were loose iu the center
field and had to be caught with the
lariat saddled and bridled and rid
den. The two successful t broncho
busters were Pistaua, an officer on
the Hilo police force and Levi
The race meet at Hoolulu Park
this year was the most successful
in the history of the track. The
day was perfect and thousands
crowded the grand stand, and the
grounds. The Judges in the stand
were W. II. Campbell, Prince
Cupid and R. T. Guard, Albert
Homer officiated as starter and did
the business in his usual competent
way. J. D. Kennedy and S. H.
Webb were in the time keepers box,
and R. T. Moses was clerk of the
scales. John O. Rourke was clerk
of the paddock and the executive
committee in charge of affairs was
J. F. Clay, F. Drughelli, and A.
The racing began Friday after
noon with three races to fill iu.
The first race was a half mile dash
which served to show the knowing,
which horse would be the star per
former of the meet. The star was
Rejected, from Papaloa, owned by
C. McLennon, who is absent from
the Islands in Canada. Rejected
won the first race against his
plucky enemy Defender, against
Frank S., and against the game
little marc Mollie Connors from
Honolulu. Rejected was in charge
of John O'Rourke who seems to
know how to fix up a horse to do
things. Last New Years, Carter
Harrison in the hands of O'Rourke
swept everything and came within
an ace of laying it over Weller who
was theu'lu his prime. This time
O'Rourke had charge of the Papaa
loa black, Rejected. He won the
first race of the meet in an easy
gallop in 50J4. Piggott, the plucky
jockey showed iu the first race the
thorough understanding that had
been established between himself
and hisjnouut. It was for Reject
ed to distinguish himself Saturday
by winning three races within the
space of an hour. The first race
was a half mile dash. Defender
and Rejected came in so close that
it was called a dead heat. The
time was 50. In the run off, Re
jected-won easily is 5034. It was
within less than an hour that Pig
gott and the I31ack from Papaaloa '
were pitted in the five eighths dash,
against Amariuo and Mollie Con
nors. He came in with a beautiful
lead iu 1.03. He had performed
a feat seldom equalled on the turf.
In the race Friday afternoon, De
fender was ridden by C. Richard
son, McAuliffe rode Frank S., who
came to the races this time in poor
condition. Thomas drew the rein
on Molly Connors and Piggott was
the long headed pilot for the black
The second race Friday was a
half mile dash for Hawaiian bred.
The entries were Barney, owned by
R. W. Jones and ridden by an Ha
waiian; Puueo Hoy owned by T.
M. Rowland and ridden by Henry
Moto; Amarino, owner David Wai
att and mounted by Kaena. Ama
rino won the race 56.
The third race was a snappy go
between seven Japanese owned
horses. The prize went to a horse
But it was Saturday afternoon
that attracted th; people. The seat
ing capacity of the grand stand was
exhausted. Crowds filled the open
spaces iu the grounds and many
people were on the quarter stretch.
The races were reeled off rapidly
and the amusement did not stop
until dark. The races as pulled off
were clean and on the square and
little complaint was heard except
in the dead heat between Rejected
and Defender. This race had at
tracted a lot of money and when it
was announced an even bteak, the
tension was too high for the occas
sion to pass without some brisk
The first race was followed by a
one mile trot and pace. There were
three entries, Faro Bank, owner,
W. Lucas of Honolulu; Hardly
Able, Joe Hogan, owner; and Aber
deen, owned by W. II. Smith.
Hardly Able was true to his name
and was distanced iu the first heat.
Faro Bank driven by his owner,
winning in 2.33. Aberdeen won
the race and the second and third
heats, time 2.32 and 2.36.
In the third race, Rejected with
Piggott again in. the saddle ran
away from his competitors, winning
iu i.o3j4; Molly Connors with
Thomas up, coming in second.
The one mile free for all with a
purse of $150 and the Hilo Mercan
tile Cup came next with Bruner,
owued by Bob Ballentyne, Dixie
Laud and Philip, entered. Dixies's
friends stayed by him. gamely but
it was believed tnat Bruner was a
new Richmond come to Hilo and
the bettors 'did a lot of hedging.
Bruner came in an easy winner
with Thomas in the saddle in 1.46.

formed his usual stunt of coming
The gentlemen's driving race
was won by Fitzgerald's famous
Ned McGowan in 3.05 with Hogan
in the seat. R. T. Guard came in
second behind Queen, one of Hilo's
favorite roadsters, and Jack KastoiH
brought up the rear with Katy
Shaw who was put in the racej
Carter Harrison who has always
before done spectacular work on '
the Hilo track, was forced into the ,
three quarter dash to fill. He had
a doctor's certificate of serious in-!
disposition in the legs. He started
but was pulled up before he had
gone half a furlong. The race was
between Racine Murphy and Mollie
Connors and was the prettiest go
of the day. The former won iu
i.i8 with McAulifie in the sad
dle. Thomas rode Mollie Connors.
The ninth race was a dash by
Japanese owned horses and went
to Charlie, owned by Araki
The tenth race, a three mile re
lay, was the .Attraction that held I
the crowd iu the grand stand until
dusk. The three riders were J.
Schaepe, Mahi and Joe Flores. 1
Kach had three horses and change
of mount was made at every half
mile. Schaepe was well iu the j
leau, wneii uis uroucno bolted,
clearing the pole with a bound and
then madly dashing across the cen
ter field. Before Schaepe could get
back into the race, he was far iu
the rear and hopelessly out of it.
Flores won the race iu 13.54.
