Antidote' llackem Find Out Tbnt n
Buce I Mover Won Until the
Iteclnloii I Declared,
Everything on wheels scorned
to havo beeu taken out to Kapio
lani Park yesterday nod from an
early hour thoro was a big stream
of humnnity wending its way
toward Waikiki. It is only on
Kamohameho. day that one gets a
chance to, boo how many horses
and vehicles there are in Hono
lulu. It was certainlya'red letter
day in tho calendar of tho Tram
ways Gompany, which did its best
to accofnmodato the crowds of
pooplo who took that slow means
of getting to and from the races.
It waB surprising to boo tho num
ber of Japanese who used the
tram cars yesterday. They
monopolised pretty much all the
space and were evidently out for a
time. In numbers they far ex
ceeded ihe natives and were to be
seen in all portions of tho park
where a free viow of the track
could bo obtained. Tho weather
'was cool and enjoyable, although
tuo breeze which always blows
across the race track continually
raisod clouds of dust from tho
courso, moBt of which found its
way into tho different stands. The
best that can be said of the condi
tion on the track is that it waB a
little worse than usual.
As to tho racos well, as usual,
nearly everybody bet on the
wrong horses, as nearly everybody
seems to have a faculty of doing.
And it was the samoin the bicyolo
events, tho suro winners did not
show up in front at tho end of the
FIRST BICYCLE RACE.

In this race King took the lead
but was caught by Sylva before
half the distance was gone over
and the Manoa Wonder had

Lyle took the lead but eoon
aftor gave plnco to Johnson, who
was booked to win. Sylva took
things easy, allowing Johnson to
sot tho paoo, and at tho three
quarters passed him easily and
kept the lead until tho end, win
ning as ho pleased. Time 2:20,
which considering tho condition of
the track is vory fast time.

Tho favorito Gladys took the
lend in tho first heat and kept it to
the finish, but the judges gavo the
heat to Watermolon Joe, it boing
found that Glady's driver, Wm.
Cunningham, waB four pounds
under weight on weighing
in. He had four pounds
of shot sewed in tho bot
toms of his pants when he started
in tho race, but in going round
tho track at all escaped through a
hole. Tho judgos wore satisfied
the losing of tho extra weight was
an accident but could not do
otherwise than award the heat to
In the second heat Ralph sur
prised everyone by going to tho

there, winning the heat in. the
fast time of 2:25, which made the

Tho third heat, however, chang
ed tho complexion of affairs,
Gladys taking a long lead at tho

Watermelon Joo boing distanced.
In the fourth and Inet heat
Gladys again took a lead of eight
or ten lengths at tho turn and
kept it easily all the way round.
EIGHTH OCEANIC S. S. CO.'S CUP.
Entries Amethyst (Kealia
Stables), Billy O. (W. H. Corn
well), Antidote Geo. Rodick,
This was thoWst exciting raco
of tho day. Amethyst was a big
favorite while Antidote was also
heavily backed to win. Amethyst
took a long lead at tho turn and
kopt it until far down tho quar
ter stretch, when Antidoto edged
up close along tho fence and gain
ed inch by inch, finally winning
by a baro noso in a furious finish.
If it had not been a white noso it
is doubtful if tho judgos could
havo distinguished it, so closo
wore tho horsoB heads together.
It was gonorally noted tho Quest
finish over witnessed on
tho traok. Tho owners, train
ors and backors of Antidoto
went wild with oxcitomout, cheer
ing and throwing their hats in the
air, instead of attending to certain
necessary formalities, which con
sisted of unsaddling tho winner
and weighing tho ridor in tho
presence of tho judges. In tho
excitement this waB neglootod and
both horso and ridor wont to the
stables, where tho native boy who
rodo such a hard fought race col
lapsod from exhaustion and ex
oitemont. This was a fatal over
sight and the judges aftor a good
deal of wrangling among tho
owners finally awarded tho
raco under tho ruins to
Amothyst, in spito of tho
fact 'that tho boy without
his saddle was of rnoro than tho
requisite weight. An appeal from
the decision was taken to tho
Jockey Club and a special meet
ing called to consider tho same
this morning. Competent horse
men, who aro not pecuniarily in
terested in tho result, say the do- j
cision of tho judges was correct j

Rodick has tho sympathy of tho
public in losing a race so hardly
won, still it was his duty as
owner to have seen that his jockey
weighed in. That he dolecated

fortune. NINTH PRESIDENT WIDEMANN's

We learn from the Los Angeles
papors that last month tho heaviest
consignment of ostrich plumes
over sent from California was
shipped to Paris. This is coupled
with tho roport'' that tho industry
has completely passed beyond tho
experimental stage and is not on
ly profitable but likely to incroaso.
Thoro is a prospect that from
$50,000 to $70,000 will bo added
during tho coming year to tho
$200,000 already invested in this
business of supplying fashion with
Tho ostrich ranches being suc
cessfully conducted at Pusadena,
Anaheim, Fallbrook, Santa
Monica, Coronado and Pomona
have mado sales this Benson ag
gregating $190,000. Tho profits
of those ventures woro for a long
time in considerable doubt, but
now it is known that so long as'
tho ladies continue to delight in
plumes the industry is an assured
Thoro is no great danger of the
market being Hooded with
foathors, for tho cost of starting
an ostrich farm in any effective
way at all is about $15,000, and a
thoroughly equipped ono requires
an outlay of $25,000 to $30,000.
This largo investment and the
care and timo necessary to obtain
good results will deter any disas
trous rush of capital to compete
in tho work.
Tho prosperity of this growing
business is not only pleasing in
itself but has a suggestive feature
which on h an ces its valuo. It
makes clear tho fact that thero are
always splendid possibilities of
introducing entorprisos in Cali
fornia that will afford now uses
for capital and industry and thus
widen the oxtent of the State's re
sources. Varied industries con
stitute a safer base for prosperity
than restriction to a few, however
profitable, and tho lesson of tho
ostrich farms teaches the advis
ability of making still other ex
periments iu tho way of adding to
our productivo occupations.

and the owner of a largo lauded
estate on that islaud,died at au early
hour this, morning, the immediate
cause of his demise being heart
failure. Mr. Meyer has been in

severe cold for which ho was be

towards bringing it to its present
high degreo of efficiency. Of lato
years, howover, he has taken little

peculiar fact that exactly half,
of the family are now in

old homestead on Molokai, whore
for years Mr. Meyer has lived
among his flocks and his herds
like one of the patriarchs of old,
