TllU TA1CIIU DRtVINO CLUI1 HACKS.
The races of tho Taichu Club look
place on Saturday afternoon last, at
Kapiolani Park, in the piesonco of
an unusually largo, and excited as
semblage. As exhibitions of the
possibilities of horse flesh, the laces
were an cntiro success. Among tho
spectators were His Majesty llio
King, Prince Kawananakoa and
lion. John A. Cummins. Tho
Judges were Capts. A. Tripp, J.
Ross and J. C. Cluney ; lime-keep
ers, Majors. S. Parker aud W. H.
Cornwell. Following is a summary :
I Race Trotting race, o-tnile dash
to harness, sweepstakes S200.
1. Billy D ch g, aged.
2. Sweetwood s in -1 years
3. George II. rn g, aged.
1. Jack hi g, aged. J. A. Cum
mins ; distanced.
Great interest was taken by every
one in this race, on account of its
novelty, being the first long distance
trotting race ever given in Honolulu.
The horses got off to a capital start,
"Jack" having the pole, "Sweet
wood" 2d, Billy 1) 3rd, and "George
II" on the outside. Before the first
quarter was reached it was evident
that Jack was out of it, lacking the
speed of his competitors. Sweet
wood then took the pole and lead
and kept it for four consecutive
milc3, her time being as follows:
1st mile 3:08, 2d mile 2:52, 3rd
mile 3:00, -1th mile 2:50, passing
under the wire in fine style, Billy D
at her wheel, and George II several
lengths behind, showing unmistaka
ble signs of being short of woik.
Sweetwood grabbing herself to
gether went oil her feet, Billy taking
the pole and the lead. This last
mile was the best contested and it
was indeed a pleasure to see Svt eet
wood struggling to overtake her now
only adversary. A blanket might
have covered both until rounding
info the homestretch when it bciatuc
quite evident that Billy U had too
much speed for the mare, coming un
der the wire amid rousing cheers at
3.02IJ, Sweetwood receiving the same
ovation for her gallant struggle, be
ing only 2 lengths behind. This
marc is one of the most promising
colts in Hawaii, and the public may
feel sure of hearing more of her in
the near future. She is half-sister
to Doneaster, being by Elmo. Tho
time was a surprise to every one as
the most sanguine only predict
ed that 10 minutes would be the time.
Pour timers on the track made the'
total time M.52, while the official
time nas 14.521;.
II Race Running race, half-mile
dash ; purse S50.
1. Shoo-lly b g. E. R. Miles.
Time .57 see.
2. Jitt b in. J. A. Cummins.
They got off to a very fair start,
Shoo-lly leading, the mare getting
to his collar before they l cached the
pole. Rounding into the home
stretch Shoo-lly again pulled away
from Jilt, increasing hN distance to
a length. The mare rallying at the
distance pole shot again ahead, aud
it almost seemed as if she would
take the race, but being little late
she only could reach the horse's
neck, aud both shot under the wiic,
Shoo-lly beating by a scant head.
III Race Running race, lA mile
1. Nick b g. E. R. Miles; time
2. Ivory w in. J. A. Cummins.
The hoi ses were sent on their
journey to a line start, Nick leading.
After passing the wire the first time
and before reaching the half, the
race was as good as over Ivory be
ginning to quit. However, she strug
gled on bravely and when Nick
crossed the wire under a pull, she
was only -1 lengths behind.
IV Race This was an extra match
race. J mile dash ; stakes private.
1. Bazaar colt b g, 2 yeais. N.
Perry ; 20 sec.
2. Ivanhoe colt b g, 2 years. G.
This proved a surprise to every
one, the 2-year old carrying more
weight and being ridden by a stable
boy, while Ivanhoe being 2 years
older and having Cal. Leonard to
ride, everybody was confident that
the latter would take the nice hands
down. They came away to a good
start, the baby taking the lead and
maintaining, to the finish, coming
under Hie wire 2 lengths ahead of
the 4-year old.
THE EXECUTION OF AIIOl'A l'OSTl'ONEI).
The date of execution of Ahopa,
tho Chinaman sentenced lo death for
bciifg an accomplice in the Puna
murder, at the November term of
Circuit Court held at Waimea, was
fixed for this morning, between the
hours of 8 and 12 o'clock. However,
late Saturday night, Mr. Justico
Dole signed an order of respite,
putting off the execution until Tues
day, March Sth. This was done to
allow time for tho presentation of a
petition to the Privy Council of
State, signed by a laigo number of
the leading Chinese, praying that
the sentence be commuted. Col. V.
V, Ashford is noting as counsel for
the condemned man.

OUR PORTUGUESE EMMICRATION.
The '-Uilo Record" of the 11th
instant contains the following on
A few weeks since we called the
attention of the public, to the talk
at that time heard, of a large Por
tuguese Einmigration. To-day we
have to recoid the fact that twenty
three families, sailed yesterday for
tho Coast via Honolulu. Now that
number of families leaving at once
means something. Jl means that
the Portuguese can not live with us.
No ! they can not get enough to
keep soul and body together, and
so are leaving. To us it seems like
"jumping out of the frying-pan into
the fire." But what are we to do.
The most of our plantations, we
understand, will not give them work
unless they will woik for the same
that a raw, green Jap will; 15 a
month. Now it seems to us to be a
shortsighted policy, on the part of
our lino planters. We Know, a
little of plantation labor and we be
lieve that, almost any Portuguese
who has been at work on a planta
tion for four or six years, is better
wortli to any plantation $20 a month,
than the green Japanese at 15.
Then again the Portuguese has
his family, and that family, will be
Ihc futuie stay of our labor market;
the Japs rake but few children and
no dependancu can be placed on
1 heir stopping in this country. If
for any reason the powers in Japan
see lit, they can send here and re
call the Japs in the country and
they must go; which would leave
our planting interests in a bad
Wc arc thus particular in speak
ing of the planters in this district
for it is only they, who can offer the
inducement which, will stop this
wholesale einmigration, of a really
stable part of our population.
Again if the Government would
commence action, aud active work
on our Volcano road, that would
give employment to many of our
The Government ought to .take
steps to prevent this einmigration.
There i3 plenty of Government woik
to do, and money to do it with and
the Portuguese ought to be employ
ed, when available.
'We do hope it will be a long time
before there is another such a Por
tuguese Einmigration from our town.
It is melancholy to go up Waianuc
nue street and sec so many houses,
with the Legend "house for sale,"
hanging fiom their posts. Piivate
iudhiduals as a rule are unable to
do much in tho matter, and so the
plantations and the Government,
must be the mam stay, to this tide
of einmigration. It bodes no good
to our islands, to have so many of
tho best class of immigrants (im
ported in to the country at a great
expense to the Government) leaving
as they are now doing. And this is
a crisis now, when those, who have
the means and land should step in
aud do all that Is possible lo arrest
this wholesale departure. May we
not therefore ask our Uilo planton
to reconsider their actions, and in
stead of driving the people from us,
to hold out inducements to them to
Give them koine out of the way
acre or two, to cultivate on shares,
and give them woik to do at reason
able living rates. Hut do not drive
them from us.
The "Record" of the 19th says:
In our last issue wo spoke of the
great Portuguese "Ilegira" taking
place. Wc llnd in conversing with
the managers of I'apaikou, Ouomea
aud Paukau, that he is giving his
Portuguese from $20 to $22 a month
for day labor and turns none off who
wish to work for him.
Mr. Scott answers ns that they
have not turned off any Portuguese
and are puying the usual wages $20
to 822 per month.
Hut in this connection we find n
(another company will soon leave)
leaving from Amaulu aud Wainaku,
that they say, that the litmts on said
Plantation tell them, they are to be
all discharged at the end of the
crop unless the work for the same
wages as the Japs.
If this is so then the manager
should come out, and let them know
that that was bluff.
The facts arc here yet; many
Portuguese have gone and more are
going as soon as they cm get away.
