FUN AT TIIK BACKS.
Wot Sky and Small Crowd do Not
The race meeting at IIoolulu
Park last Friday was one of the
best in some respects yet given in
Hilo. There was a dash and spirit
that too often gives place to vexa
tious delays that would even pro
voke n lawyer bent on clogging the
wheels of justice. On New Year's
day nothing stopped the fun. Not
even the absence of a crowd in the
grand stand gave any one the blues.
The frequent showers made the
time n little under the record, but
the horses got off during squalls
just as snappy as they did in the
sunshine. A. G. Kullbcrg offi
ciated as starter, and the matter-of-fact
and decisive style of his work
had something to do with the satis
factory character of the day's sport.
When a jockey who was left at the
post essayed to raise a protest,
when the bunch were half way to
the first quarter post, the starter
merely said, "Blankety blank it,
what are you standing there for;
did I not tell you to 'go?' "
The first race was the three
eighths dash for h purse of $100,
with Rejected, Defender and Frank
S. in the line-up. The betting
showed Frank S. the favorite and
he justified the confidence placed
in him by winning the race in 38 4.
The funniest race ever run at
Hoolulu Park was the mule half
mile dash. P. E. Dorland of Olaa
brought down Flying Cloud and R.
J. Lvtnan entered Frank S. and J.
B. The race was a slow one, J. B.
winning in i:i6.
The pne mile free for all, purse
$125 and Hilo Mercantile cup, was
won by Dixie Land in 152J5.
Merrils Fore was a game contestant

Philip and Rejected. Rejected won
the race in 54. Philip weighed
iu at ninety pounds, but even then
fell short of victory.
The most exciting race of the
day was the three mile relay race.
Mahi Jr. of Hilo, Joe Flores of
Shipman's ranch, and Fitzsimmons
did the riding. Flores won on the
strength and speed of his horse in
the last halt.
The ball game, which was played
in the center field during the races,
was won by the Hilo team in a score

The first quarterly meeting
the year of the Hilo Agricultural
Society was held last Saturday af
ternoon in the office of the Presi
dent, Chas. Furneatix. The fea
ture of the meeting was a pa
per by L. A. Andrews on "Na
tive Bananas in Hawaii." The
paper was interesting both from a
practical and scientific standpoint
and showed a thorough knowledge
of the subject. The paper will ap
pear in the bulletins of the Hawaii
Experiment Station published at
Honolulu and will be of exception
al interest to banana men. At the
close of the meeting Mr. Andrews
was given a hearty vote of thanks.
The following new members were
added to the roll of the society: P.
Peck, Captain Eldarts, R. A. Ly
man, Wm. Ragsdale, Bert Loebcn
stien, Henry Lyman, N. K. Lyman
and Aug. Itcn. Tluse new mem
bers are variously interested in the
cultivation of bananas, cane, coffee
A. Louisson was to have read a
paper on Coffee Culture but could
not be present. President Fur
neatix occupied Louisson's time
with a brief resume of the work ac
complished by the society since it
was organized. The society has
been in existence a little more than
two years and, according 'to its
President, shows a fine record of
accomplished results in all that it
has undertaken to promote. The
President prophecied that the fu
ture would be even more beyod an
ticipation than the present is over
the past. He discussed generaly
what had been done for cane, coffee,
banana culture and for pineapples,
and cited the progress made iu each
line. He acknowleged the gift
from Jared G. Smith of a complete
set of pamphlets, issued by the
Agricultural Experiment Station
and from Dr. John Hayes of Hilo,
of several volumes of the Year Book
of the Agricultural Department.
Mr. Fumeaux also stated that lie
had been assured by the Matson
Navigation Co. that the Rosecrans
would run regularly to Hilo lor

The following committee was ap
pointed to gather information rela
tive to the area planted to pine
apples in Hilo and adjacent dis
tricts: Geo. W. Paty, Jim Morris
and Ben Koons.
The next regular meeting of the
society will be keld iu April.
A special meeting to consider the
question of pineapples was called
for Saturday, January 16, at 1:30
p. m. At this meeting F. S.
Lyman and others interested in
pineapples, have been asked to pre
sent papers dealing with different
phases of the subject.

Approved by .ludirr
of I The members of the Board of
Supervisors of East Hawaii appeared
by appointment last Saturday after
noon before Judge Little nt Cham
bers for approval of their bonds and
to take the oath of office. The
bonds were presented by County
Attorney elect John U. Smith, and
were all made with the Fidelity
Trust and Security Co. as secur
ity. After examination Judge Lit
tle approved all the bonds with one
reservation, towit: that a certificate
of the right of the bonding com
pany to do business in the Territory
of Hawaii be secured from the Sec
retary of the Territory and filed
with the Clerk of the Fourth Cir
The oath was 'then administered
in the following form:
"I solemnly swear, in the pres
ence of Almighty God, that I will
faithfully support the Constitution
and laws of the United States, and
the laws of the Territory of Ha

Afteradministering thcoath Judge
Little made a short talk felicitating
the members of the Board upon
their assuming the important and
dignified responsibilities wrought by
the change from old conditions to
new ones. He reminded them of
the numerous important duties that
they would have to meet in their
official capacity, among which he
touched on the legislative powers of
a Board of Supervisors under the
Territorial law and under the title
of police powers of state. He
stated that government consists of a
system of rules and regulations
called laws, emanating from a
source having a right to proclaim
and declare. The right to proclaim
and declare implies the right to en
force obedience Therefore you
must be careful to proclaim and de-!
clare nothing which may not be
enforced under the Constitution and
laws of the United States. It is
also true that God has never created
a set of men who could form a gov
ernment that would run itself. It
requires the earnest and most pains
taking effort of patriotic and capa
ble men to guide a'ight the ship of
