thc damp condition or the weather
on tho l(5th of November, was post

association, an nnprovement which
nobody with a little knowledge of
Horseflesh can fail to notice, and
ivhich not only manifests itself in
(lie time made, but in the looks,
condition and whole bearing of the
mlmals. Great credit ia due to the
issocintion for its earnest, untiring,

In tho first race both horses wero
beautiful animals and equally fav-
' rites with the public. Hancock
got the startf but was soon over-
fcnnd left considerably behind
Jj&nhoe Jr., which came in sev
4L lengths ahead.
'ie second race was a very good
the horses getting a good start
co'ming round almost neck and
till tho homestretch, when
Oak took tho lead and won the
1st heat bv about'a length, in the
;f2nd heat Billy S took the lead on
he short turn, but Red Oak crept
tcadilv ui) on him and took tho
i-Jiole before the the mile post, ip
' creasing tho. distance on the homo
litruteh," passing under tho wire a
length aheaddf Billy S.
r4n tho third race the horses wero
well matched, and woro racing neck
and neck nearly all tho way, Bird
watcher winning by a full' length,
after,hard tussle for the laurels.
Tlio luting Race was ono of tho
eyeiHsTofrtlip day, and great excite-
went prevaflW during tho different
ib heats. Speculation won the let

the matter after somo animated
discussion was settled by Mr. Jack
Avery's driving Frank S which won
the deciding 3d heat in 3 :55, loudly
cheered by the specifiers, whoso
sympathies seemed nearly all en
listed on his side, a Ilnwniian horse
trotting against a superior bred
In llio Pony Race tho interest and
excitement wasjvt fevcr-hent, tlrcro
being almost as many favorites as
there were horses, and a good deal
of betting was indulged in. Jack
delighted his backers and discom
fiti'd a good many by winning the
race after a hot contest with Dar
ling and Pet, which followed close
on his heels all the way round and
under tho wire.
The Sweepstakes was an exciting
race and the people evinced breath
less interest while it was going on.
Gray Eaglo lead nt the start and
would probably have won the race,
but stepped in a hole with his hind
legs, almost sitting down on his
haunches and falling back several
lengths on the abort turn. He
nulled himself tngi'tlior vary quick
ly, however, and made a noble effort
to overtake his opponent, who mean
while had got too good a start of
him and came in, winning by ncarl3'
In the Maiden Race opinions were
pretty evenly divided about the two
contestant, and they kept closely
together till the homestretch, whore
Billy S pulled ahead and won by a
The Ladies Bracelet Race was
one of the best races of the day,
and one in which the fair sex took a
special interest, the horses being
entered in the the namo of ladies,
who though not present were well
known to most of them. After tho
usual little prancinga and capers a
fair start was attained, and away
they sped, Pet taking the lead and
maintaining it till the 5 mile post,
where Barney and Darling whose
riders had saved their noble animals
for the last supreme effort, edged
past and came up the homestretch
in superb style, neck and neck,
Darling winning by a neck after a
most stubborn contest, both horses
being admirably ridden by their
respective owners, Messrs. Herbert
and Potter, and tumultuously eheci
ed by all present.
The Mule Race was not the least
interesting feature of the programme
and although Jimmy showed a tend
ency to bolting toward the Grand
Stand they managed to get a
fairly good start, Beauty leading,
but overtaken and passed on the
homestretch by Kula Boy, the victor
of many mule race3 in days past.
Tho goddess of victory gave him
the wreath in this instance also lie
winning by several lengths.
The races were over about 3:30
p. m. and the crowd dispersed with
the unanimous expression of satis
faction at having enjoyed a good
days sport. Long life and prosper

WHERE, 0 WHERE IS THE JUDGE?
The Police Court is still without a
'presiding officer, no appointment
having been made. The calendar
this morning contained twenty-eight
cases and by Monday there is just
as likely to be a hundred. The de
la3' in non-appointment of a Police
Justice is causing considerable in
convenience. The two names as
mentipned. un(er consideration are
Mr. David Dayton the late incum
bent, and Mr. William Foster clerk
of tho Supreme Court.
HAWAIIAN RIFLE ASSOCIATION.
A meeting of the Hawaiian Rifle
Association was held last evening at

in tho programme elsewhere. A
discussion too place respecting tho

THE flAMIE COMPETITION.
The competitive exhibition of
machines for .decorticatinc ramie
took place in Paris in the latter part
of September, having been post
poned from the date originally fixed
in August. It was disappointing
to those who tako special interest
in the development of this import
ant textile pTant. Out of fifteen in
scribed contestants, only three ap
peared upon tha field, and but five
machines wero put in operation.
The tests wero insignificant, being
confined to the decortication of a
few hundred pounds merely of
green or dry stalks, the point of
competition being chiefly rapidity.
The machines were all of one sys
tem, the crushing sort, composed of
grooved cylinders whose rotation
eliminated the woody portion of tho
plant, leaving tho bark for future
treatment. Tills is the system
which Mr. Roe.l, the horticulturist,
who first experimented with the
ramie in 18fU in Mexico, made uso
of, and the apparatus in tho Paris
Exhibition ia declared to bo no great
improvement upon IiIb. As some
consolation, it is claimed that an
English manufactory has succeeded
in adapting llax machinery to tlio
decortication of the ramie, There
is also hope that 11 process recently
shown in Paris, but not brought out
at tho exhibition, may prove effica
cious. This process is chemical,
making use of a "fatty substance"
to remove tlio incorrigible gum from
tho ramie. It has an air of common
sense about it, suggestive of tho
ancient mariner, who uses grease to
rcmovo the tar from his lingers. It
seems n pity, considering tho vast
agricultural field Mint would be
opened by the use of this new tex
tile, that so.uio iiigculp,us inventor.
c,aunot bo found tosoiSio tho forturr
that would 'certainly await a prac-.
tical discovery. I Redlunds (Jito
