Washington's lllrtliduy Properly
, Celebrated nt lloolulu Vnrk.
Washington's birthday saw good
sport nt lloolulu 'Park. The day
was fair nud the trnck was fine nnd
a much larger crowd should have
been in the grand stand. The pro
gram, while not extensive, made
up in uniqueness and origniality.
There were two. races nnd a ball
game. 1 lie ball game was between
the Waiakea aggregation known as
the Waiakea Social Club and the ,
Pcpcekco nine. Thc game was
hard played on both sides and re-,
suited in a score of 9 to 4 against
the visiting team.
Thc races were running races for
a Volcano Stables cup, to be won
by the same rider three times.
Ronald Kennedy scored twice Mon
day afternoon, riding Defender, the
jjiimc little horse from Papaaloa.
The entries in the races were Chr.
Castendyk riding Frank S. Ronald
Kennedy with Defender and C. N.
Prouty with Dixie Land. A. G.
Kulberg and Jack Guard were the
starters, and in each race got the
bunclTfairly off. The first was a
half mile dash. All thc horses
winked knowingly at thc judges,
signifying that they were next to
their jockeys and would run the
rack to suit themselves. In the
.irst getaway, Frank S. wanted to
make, a protect to the judges against
the curb bit which had been thrust
upon him, and because of this the
other two got the best of it. De
fender, under thc sure guidance of
Kennedy, kept the lead and won
thtt race in .53 3-10
The second was a three eighths
wish. This time Dixie Land gave
the judges and thc starters the
horse laugh. He said distinctly
that he objected to being treated
like a colt and would rather taclile
a ten mile stretch with fifty hurdles
in it, than tlie beggarly three
He refused to start and
told Prouty, his rider, that it was a
rotten deal to force him out of his
class alongside such skates as Frank
S. and Defender. Dixie talked it
over a half dozen times and one
time snorted over to J. T. Moir and
asked him why he didn't make thc
race 100 yeards and let Philip and
Brughclli in. After a while, just
to show that he was a sport, Dixie
toed the mark and the flag dropped.
Dixie hung behind, laughing all
the time at Prouty and turning up
a scornful nose at thoughts of thc
I Volcano Stables cup which is put
I up for jockeys, not horses.
The race was a peach so far as
I Defender and Frank S. were con-

THE IIAI.TIC FLEET.
Not n Formidable Flotilla and
He Only n lllufT.
The strength of the Baltic fleet,
reported as having stnrted for the
Hast, is problematical. If it has
nny fighting efficiency whatever it
is because Russia has succeeded in
completing one or more of the Bo
rodino class of battleships. Three
of these vessels, the Borodino, Orel
and Alexander III, were launched
in Russia in 1901. nt the same time

. . ... . ri
The chances are that one or two of!
this class have been rushed to some
sort of completion and form the
backbone of the fifteen vessels re
Beside these, the only vessels of
any consequence which were left in
the Baltic are two respectable but
elderly battleships known as the
Sissoi Veliky and the Navarin.
The former is a vessel of 9,000 tons,
launched in 1894, with a designed
speed of sixteen knots and reported
able to do thirteen and a half. The
Navarin dates b.uk to the time of
compound armor and slow firing
guns. Her coal supply is very
meagre and consumption very large.
There is also au old cruiser, the
Admiral Naklimof, built in 1885
and reconstructed in 1869. She is
usually statiotied in the Far East
but has not been reported there
recently. We may also include the
little Novik with her wonderful
speed of twenty-six knots, but her
fighting strength is inconsiderable.
Here, however, real efficiency
euds. The list tails off into archaic
relics from the eighties, and over
grown monitors classed as i'coast
defence battleships." It would be
difficult to find one which could
make the voyage in time of peace,
to say nothing of war. It is pro
bable that colliers and torpedo boat
destroyers figure largely in the total
The truth is that before the out
break of war Russia had already
dispatched to the Far East every
available ship which she thought
would add to her fighting strength.
Then there was a second over
hauling to find consorts for the
battleship Osliabia, detained by an
accident in the Mediterranean.
This resulted in sending the Aurora,
the last modern cruiser left in
European waters, and in pressing
into service the prehistoric "Dmitri
Donskoi," a windjammer with yards
and bowsprit, buili in 1883. She
has appeared in cable dispatches as
a battleship, or sometimes, by thc
simple insertion of a comma, as two!
These three vessels, with destroyers,
are presumably the squadron wait
ing in the Red Sea.
Out of all this force it is difficult
to imagine a fleet which with any
justification could be risked against
the victorious Japanese. It seems
far more likely that it was dis
patched by a government compelled
to do something to satisfy public
clamor, and that it will repeat Ca
mara's historic dash through the
Suez canal and back &gaiu. S. M.

abandoned, Governor Carter shot
Mr. Brughelli, who owned the
