in mechanical devices for saving labor and time, have received and have
in operation on the plantation a new machine for picking up cane in the

is guaranteed to do mechanically for three or four cents what has cost

lYIadamus Proceedings Against County Auditor.
The legal status of the two sets of police officers throughout the
County of Hawaii will be determined by Judge Parsons this morning.
The question of the right to salaries of the appointee of Sheriff Kcola
nui or of the old police force retained by the Hoard of Supervisors has
been raised by a petition for a writ of madamus filed Friday afternoon
by Norman K. Lyman, and an alternative writ running against Auditor
Charles Maguirc directing him to show cause why he has not paid the
said Norman K. Lyman, his salary of $75 as sheriff's clerk.
In his petition, Lyman asserts that for the period of one month next
before the first day of August, he has performed the duties of clerk to
the Sheriff at a salary of $75 per month; that the claim has been duly
allowed by the Board of Supervisors at a regular meeting and has been
duly signed by Chairman and County Clerk of the County, but that the
said Charles Maguirc, Auditor of the County of Hawaii, refuses to issue
a warrant for the sum of $75 iu payment of his service. He charges
that in refusing to issue said warrant, Auditor Maguire is acting without
authority of law and contrary to the County Act and more particularly
Section 75 thereof defining his duties, and that such action is iu deroga
tion of his rights and he is without redress iu any court of law or equity
and without any remedy unless a writ of madamus be granted requiring
the said Charles Maguire, Auditor, to issue the said warrant.
Carl S. Smith appears for Lyman and County Attorney Williams will
represent Auditor Maguire at the hearing to be held before Judge
Parsons this morning.
Supervisor Lyman Will Reorganize Department.
Road Supervisor, Norman K. Lyman, who was appointed by the
Board of Supervisors just before adjournment, has 'taken hold of the
road work with a determination to mako the road money go as far as
possible iu the maintenence of good roads of the district.. lie has found
many opportunities for curtailment of expense and the extravagant waste
ot luncls, which can be utilized to better enects elsewhere. He has found
it necessary to entirely renovate the department stables with a new coat
of vhitewash and application of disinfectptit has put these quarters in a
sanitary condition. Several useless animals now eating their heads off
will be sold at public auction.
Since he has taken hold, Supervisor Lyman has made an entire tour
of his district with a view of repairing those stretches of road which are
at present in a very bad condition. Besides Front street, Volcano and
Kaiwiki roads which are in a very bad condition, he finds there is a
bad section of roadway between Wainaku and Papaikou; then near Pe
peekeo repairs are needed. Between Iloiiomu and Hakalau there is a
piece of bad road, which will be given nttention. The Rock Crusher at
Pepeekeo, now standing idle, will be brought into requisition, and the
work of putting these three sections of the road iu repair will be started
It develops that owing to the laborious manner of getting out rock
near the Wailuku bridge, it has been possible only to utilize the rock
crusher at this point seven days in the month. The motive power costs
$4 per day, and Supervisor Lyman expects by means of a more systcmiz
ed method of drilling and economical use of power, to increase the out
put of crushed rock, so that a cheaper rate for the electric motor can be
One of the first works to be undertaken will be the straightening of
the Waiolama stream between Richardson street and Waiakea. This
will be done in cooperation with the health authorites and as a sanitary
measure. All decaed matter, trash and weeds will be cleared from the
banks of the stream, so as to give an unobstructed flow of water to the
sea. At present the aeons accumulates back ot the Ukino Hotel and
forms a menace to the public health. Another common nuisance
which will be stopped is the practice of storekeepers and others dumping
loose waste paper, decayed fruit, banana peels and other rubbish in the
street gutters. Such refuse is caught up by the wind and scattered along
street fdr blocks and Supervisor Lyman proposes to put a stop to this
habit, especially among the Japanese and other shopkeepers.

Weather has been beautiful, with no rain for two or three days.
Nights clear and cold. Plenty of fire to be seen in the crater, and thirty
five guests at the hotel.
The weather was fine and the crowd was good naturcd, but the per
formance moved slowly Saturday afternoon at Hoolulu Racing Park.
For this reason those who occupied the grandstand and moved about
the paddock rather lost interest in the racing and other events. Owing
to the smallness of the various prizes, which were fixed at ten per cent,
of the gate receipts to the winner of each event, there was not au inor
dinate scramble for honors by those who took part in the various events.
In the first place the ball game scheduled between Papaaloa which
was a drawing card to many, was called off 011 account of the failure of
Palfrey's bovs to come to time. The reason given for their absence was
inability to bring together the scattered members composing the Papaa
loa nine. As a consequence, the Hilo team offered to beat any picked
nine on the grounds. The gauntlett was immediately accepted and
without any preparation, a scrub aggregation dubbing themselves the
"Unknowns" proceeded to walk away with the score board. Embert
Brown, their lightning pitcher, flunked at the last moment, so that
Morehead offered to go into the box. The pirates had no compassion
for his feelings whatever, and during the interval between the races, the
crowd amused itself by watching the home talent chase the speeding
.sphpre ns it went sailing into the tall grass. When all the lost balls
were gathered iu at the end of the game and au inventory of runs taken,
it was found that the Unknowns had appropriated 13 runs to Ililo's 1.
In the first race for Hawaiian bred trotters, "Dolly" owned by Joe
Canario, Jr., won against "Harry" of the Volcano Stables. Time, 3:24
The luna's race was spirited and exciting, the owners riding their own
animals. Cameron of Onotnea, however, had no trouble iu winuinir,
Buck-1 with Shipman second and Richie third.
In the one-half mile running race, St. Yusef beat Brughellrs Philip.
Time 51 seconds.
"Ned McGowau," driven by J. D. Enston, and "John D," driven by
Richard Lyman, was a spirited contest, and for a time Easton appeared
to have a chance. In the second heat, however, one of the traces of his
harness broke, which caused McGowau to break, and although ahead,
"John D" was declared the winner. Time, 2:51 and 2:49.
The polo game was the most interesting event of the day's sport. Dr.
Archer Irwin, Ollie Shipman and R. E. Balding played against Clarence
Lyman, George Richardson and Alvah Scott. The first team won by a
score of 2 to 1, winning the first and last goals. W. T. Balding acted as
