"FAIR PLAY IS BONNIE PLAY."
There is apparent need for the
adoption of the above motto by the
associated aquatic bodies of Hono
lulu. A rule lias been adopted by
the Hawaiian Rowing and Yachting
Association, to govern the approach
ing regatta, which does not yield a
particle of fairness to any impartial
analysis. The status of competitors
in any branch of sporting is fixed
previous to the events, upon the
basis of understood if not stated
conditions. Results may decide
classification as to merits, but not
as to entries for succeeding con
tests. An amateur pedestrian or
oarsman once placing himself in the
category of professionals, cannot
any more enter in a professional
contest. He may have descended
from first to second class in public
estimation, but cannot go back to
amatcurship to retrieve honors lost
in the professional arena. In a
word, there is no such thing as
graduating backward in sporting
matters. The rule of the Associa
tion referred to, therefore, can only
be explained on the principle that
everything is lawful ' in boating
rivalry. It is impossible that in
telligent members of the boating
fraternity, who are at the same time
fair-minded, can uphold the rule
that seniors who have failed to win
races may become juniors. The
idea is against common-sense as
well as the canons of aquatics.
Three boatinc clubs last evening
decided adversely to the rule, and
there is every appearance that if it
is pressed by a majority the Asso
ciation will suddenly collapse, and
all tho arrangements for the regatta
on His Majesty's Birthday fall
through. Honolulu will be sadly
discredited, if those who are willing
to adopt ulterior means of gaining
victories, should prove themselves
' masters of the situation in aquatic
sport, than which no branch of
manly amusement is more favorably
circumstanced here for satisfactory
development. At the same time, it
is to be hoped no boating club will
hastily break with the Association,
" merely because it cannot get the
majority to accede to its views in all
things. It is reported that the re
solve of the Myrtle Club to with
draw is not entirely due to the
above rule, but owing to its repre
sentation being outvoted in other
matters where there was abundant
room for difference of opinion. We
hope reasonable counsels will pre
vail, and that no club will pursue a
foolish " rule or ruin" course. By
all means, let a generous effort be
made on all hands to-night, to se
cure fair measures and harmonious
concert of action in aquatic affairs,
particularly those connected with
tho regatta that, in past years, has
formed the chief feature of the cele
bration of His Majesty's Birthday.
raised as near as possible to tho
place where they are to be perma
nently planted. Now as to tho
kinds that ought to be cultivated,
the products of which have the
world for a market. The first place
should be given to cinchona, and
nearly of equal importance are ficus
clastica and Siphonia Brazilensis,
the former for its medicinal bark
and tho two latter for their gum
(India-rubber). Tim demand for
.the products never fails, and the
United States offer a market for all
that can be produced here. From
your report of the proceedings of
the Roval Hawaiian Agricultural
Sooiety of October 10th last, I find
that the Government employee com
plaiued that the public would not
accept the plants which he had to give
away, and therein the public shows
goodsenso : they prefer to buy plants
which they do want, to accepting
a lot of trash that they have no use
for, even as a gift. To illustrate,
one lady recently told me that her
husband had bought plants to the
amount of thirty dollars from the
Government nursery and the whole
lot died off ; another lady bought to
tho extent of S2.25, which also died,
and only a few days ago a gentle
man from Ilainakua told me that he
had accepted a gift of plants from
the' Government, but none of them
grow, so they became an expensive
present to pay the freight on, to
say nothing of the trouble of plant
ing. In this manner the Govern
ment discourages tree planting, by
supplying a lot of sickly rubbish
that is sure not to thrive. Another
complaint the Government employee
had to make was that the planters
refused to send young men to him
to be taught forestry! It is absurd
for a person who worked, from the
ace of twelve years up to the time
he was imported direct to this coun

try, in a crockery shop, and who,
in all his life, never received one
day's instruction in raising trees, to
assume to teach others ; it would be
a pure case of the blind leading the
blind. From the above facts it will
evidently be a waste of public
money on the part of the Govern
ment to continue to purchase boxes
and pay labor to grow plants which
they have no use for themselves, and
which they cannot even give away;
but if they will concentrate their
labor at Makiki under some person
competent to create a forest of the
trees indicated above, there would
be a good prospect of raising a re
venue therefrom in the near future.
Of course, there are many other
valuable trees that will occur to you,
but whilst nil the conditions favor
the growing of the kinds named,
and which have an exliaustless
market in America and Europe, I
hold that the Government cannot in
justice to local private enterprise
meddle with the growth of such
plants or trees as have only a local
market. But. under the present
mode of proceeding the Government
will never succeed in making a valu
able forest, because they do not
know how to raise the trees, but I
have reason to think they would be
glad to be rid of the present imbe
cile system if they could get any
practical man to accept the direction
of the forest planting. At least, I
know that I myself have been asked
by one high in authority if I would
take charge of the matter, but as
they had no means to pay for the
service required, I had to decline,
as anyone else would have done,
who was capable of creating a forest,
to accept the amount of labor neces
sary to make it a success, and which
received no remuneration. As it is,
the laborers arc left to their own
sweet will, except for a few minutes,
perhaps, on Sunday.
