Most of tho Way.
Tho cars of tho O. 11. & L. Co.
wore crowded on Saturday aftor
noou on thoir way to tho Pearl City
Peninsula, tho attraction being tho
six-oared race between tho Myrtles
and llualanis for the championship
of the Hawaiian islands. Tho reg
ular tram at 1, 15 had to havo extra
cars coupled on, iu spito of which it
was crowded. J'ho special train for
the race course at ;):li was speedily
filled as ilrst ma.,o up, and it was
not until it had been extended to
contain three closed and live open
cars that nil tho waiting people
were accommodated. Even then
standing room wa disputed. Tho
colors of tho Myrtles (rod) predo
minated, and thoio was a laiut
sprinkling of tho Healnuis' (blue;
colors. Emblematic of tho Myrtles
thoio woro white ribbons with "Myr
tle" printed in rod, tho Hoalauis
having blue ribbons with tho club
name printed iu gold. There was
much speculation oven among tho
fair ones over tho race, and not a
little amount of "pin money" was
wagered on tho result. Nothing ex
ceptional occurred on tho trip down,
which was made inside of an hour.
Arriving at tho station tho thump
ing of tho big drum of tho P. O.

ance. Shortly after tho arrival of
tho last train tho yroat race beuan.
There woro fully ono thousand spec
tators on the shore.
Mr. .las. O. Spencer was tho
stailer, and with his littlo popgun
stood on tho edgo of tho pier ready
to send tho ciows ollun what was to
bo a very exciting event. No littlo
trouble was evinced at tho start,
owing to tho Hoalauis' anxiety to
take tho lead. Finally both boats
got into lino and ns tho Hoalauis

A HIGH-HANDED ACT.
Whou air. A. a. Ulegnorn was
Collector-Gouoral of Customs, ho
established strict regulations for
governing tho movements of pilots.
Thoy woro required to outer iua
book in tho custom house full par
ticulars of thoir piloting of all ves
sels, including tho timo when a ves
sel was signaled and when tho pilot
boarded hor. In order to see if
those rules woro still enforced whou
tho Miowora stranded, a reporter of
the Bulletin was sont to tho custom
house to copy tho recent record in
tho pilot's book mentioned. Ho bo-
some of the entries down, whou Mr.
Jas. B. Castle, Collector-General,
approaching him asked for what pa
per he was taking notes. On tho
reporter's reply that it was the Bi'L
i.ctjn, Mr. Castlo arbitrarily seized
his ''copy" and said ho could not al
low the information to be published.
It may well bo ashed, in view of this
official's action, whether tho public
has any rights that servants of tho
Provisional Government aro bound
to respect. Tho record in question
was exposed publicly in a public
office, it is to bo presumed for tho
information of tho public as well as
that of tho custom house head. The
natural presumption ovor Mr.
Castle's high-handed act is that
thoro was something in tho record
which tho now administration of the
custom houso is ashamed to have
submitted to the public. It would
look decidedly bad, after all the
loud professions of projected reform
with which Mr. Castle's entry on
his duties was heralded, to havo it
made known that looseness of man
agement had resulted in any parti
cular from tlio change made in both
chief and deputy for purely politi

Drowning of a Native off tho Kaka
A native man named Georgo Ma
kaio was drowned yesterday morn
ing in tho harbor. Ho was stand
ing on the wharf below tho Myrtle
hoalhoiino watching tho S, S. Mio
wora and the steamers tugging hoi,
when his hat blow oil". Makaio throw
oH his coat and jumped in after his
head cover. Ho had to swim some
distance before ho recovered the hat,
and turned to swim back. According
to au eyewitness Makaio immediate
ly sang out for help and sank. A
boat with two men in it pulled up
to tho spot, but the man had din
appeared, Makaio had been iu the
employ of 11. May 6i Co. over twenty
yeuia and was well liked by his em
ployers for his lidolity and trust
worthiuoss. Ho leaves a wife and
sovoral children, Tho body has not
tho oars fairly lifted tho shell, as
thoy took a good lead, pulling at a
thirly-nino stroke. Tho Myrtles
woro not slow iu taking water and
with niachino-liko precision drove
tho uunanied boat through tho
water. It was a pretty start, al
though slightly iu favor of tho Hoa
lauis. Hardly had tho Myitlo crow
settled down to a thirtj'-six stroke
whou it was seen that thoy wore
pulling up on thoir opponents. Op
posite tho Hoalauis' quarters, a few
yards from tho start, tho bow of tho
Myrtles' boat was seen to oat up tho
lead of tho other at ovory stroke.
Tho now boat fairry skipped like a
Hying iish. About a quartor of a
mile from tho start, E. Holt, fourth
stroke in tho Healani boat, was un
seated and had to stand up to adjust
his seat, and at this moment tho
Myrtles passed thoir antagonists
pulling at tho same steady stroke.
After this it was seen that tho
Myrtles' boat was by far tho best,
and that tho Healanis would not bo
111 it. Tho Myrtles held tho lead
and turned the stake a few seconds
I101110 crossed tlio hitler's bow
several times as viewed from dif
ferent angles. At intervals noth
ing could l-e seen of tho Hea
lanis, as tho Mj'rtles covered them.
At the quarter milo from tho homo
it nko, tho admirers of tho Hoalauis
felt blue indeed, many of them going
homo with the idea that thoro was
no hope of ''restoration" of the glit
teiiug trophj so much exhibited as
llealaui plato tho past year. Tho
.Myrtles crossed tho finish lino at
least ten lengths ahead of tho Hea
lanis. Tho official timo was 19 111.
.j3sec. Tho timo made last year
was 19:12, but tho Myrtles could
have covered the distance in much
quicker timo, if thoy were pushed at
all. The Healanis seemed to have
lost heart on witnessing the speed of
the Myrtle's now boat, and came in
at a thirty-four stroke.
Tho Healani crow woro interviewed
after tho race, while iu tho dressing
room, and thoy sincerely acknow
ledged t hat tho bc.it boat won. John
Holt was tho most disheartened
man in tho ciow. "'Well," said ono
of the crow, ''we'll havo to get a now
boat. Wo inaj' pull iu this boat for
years, and thou wo won't be able to
tam.li tlw "r-.rfl lirfil "
Considerable- money changed
hands after tho race, and for a time
thoio was great excitement on the
water front. Tho Healanis had been
tho fauirites from tho very start, and
uot a few wagered odds on what
was to tho initiated a walkover for
tho Healanis. But It turned out to
bo ono of those "suro thiugs," the
piecursors and scourges of disap
pointment, and tho too-knowing
sports suller in consequonco.
Their defeat did not deter the
Healani crew and thoir friends from
having a supper at the Hotel in the
ovenintf all tho same. Tho Myrtles
gloated ovor their victory nl tho Ar
lington over a spread of the best
that Mr, T. E. Kiouso could furnish.
Tho antics of tho Myrtles backers
011 tho way back woro provokingly
amusing, and the most stoical could
not repress laughter at their shines,
liven tho judicial countenance of
tho District Magistrate who used
to pull n Myrtle oar was beaming
with pleasure, and ho sang, "After
tho race," with his stentorian voice,
reminding his friends of whou ho
was "ouo of tho hoys."

Negotiations for getting a pull
from tho S. S. Australia have been
abandoned. That steamship ha,
however, boon secured to sail for
San Francisco on Wednesday in

tlio fonvaiding of tho Miowera's

The long-looked for Pilngcr
arrived on Friday and with it
there came to us fence wire
both black and gnhanized, in
No. 5 of the former and Nos. 4.
5, 6 and 7 in the galvanized.
For the past few weeks there
has been something of a famine
in the wire market and some
people have been obliged to
delay repairs and improve
ments until now. In connec
tion with the large trade in
wire which we have built up
within the past few months we
have revolutionized fence build,
ing on the Hawaiian Islands by
introducing the "Improved
Lock Fence" the materials for
makinr which we sell with
ordinary fence building. The
economy of a locked fence
sticks out all over it like points
on barbed wire. The expense
of digging post holes and buying
posts is almost entirely dis
pensed with; in the new style,
posts may be put fifty feet
apart and the fence is stronger
than the old style with posts
every five feet. A whole herd
of cattle may run pt 11 in ell
against a locked fence and
find themselves sprawling on
the ground while the fence re-
mams intact, in the matter ol
expense, it is cheaper than the
old style for the first building,
and repairs may be made by
one man where the old style
would require two or three.
Ouite a number of
of plantations are
methods of fence
the demand will increase with
the arrival of the thousands of
coils of wire by the "Pfiuger."
