THE NEW BICYCLE TRACK

"Work is beiig vigorously pro
secuted on tho new bicycle track
at Kewalo, and when a represent
ative of this paper visited tho
sceno a day or two since some
twenty teams and forty men wero
founp busily employed. The con
tractor for tho work is W. H.
Gummings, and ho promises to
have tho track so far advanced in
a couple of weeks that wheelmen
will be ablo to use it in training
for the coming races.
The track has been laid. out and
surveyed by W. A. Wall. It is
exactly one third of a milo in
length, not an inch more or less,
and is built on the latest modern
ideas. It is 25 feet in width ex
cept on tho home stretch, where it
widens out to 40 feet to give
plenty of room for spurting. It
winds round Oyclomere lake,
from which it 18 separated by a
fence 2 feet high and 2 feet from
tho edge of the water. The dead
line, or whito tape stretched on
the inside of the course, will be
18 inches from this fence, so that
there will be little danger of
wheelmon taking headers into the
water unless through their own
carelessness. If they do they
will get wet but not be hurt. At
tbo turn on the baokstretoh tho
track will bo banked up to an
angle of 2 feet in 25, just enough
for drainage, whilo at the other
turn just before entering tbo home
stretch the angle will be 6 feet in
25. A slope of 25 per cent looks
steep bat it is really much less
than that on some of the tracks
in tho United States. The sur
face of the track will bo oovered
with a natural cement taken from
the bottom of tho lake, in prefer
ence to wood. Experienced
wheelmen claim that much
is lost in propelling rubber tires
over wood for tho
thero is too cre.it
wood is hard and dry and thoro is
really nothing for the tire to hold
to. With the natural cement to
be used on the Kewalo track it is
ft und there is just enough mois
ture to cause a slight suction,
thereby allowing the rider to re
tain all the powtr he puts forth.
This coinent is nothing but de
composed coral and it is thought
it will provo much superior oven
to tho manufactured commit of
which many Eastern tracks are
composed. The whole of the
track will bo surrounded by a
tight-board feace, 9 feet high.
The grand stand will be
150x80 feot on tho ground
plan and so constructed
that tho lowest tier of
seats will bo 6 feet above tho
lovel of the track. The seats will
bo so arranged that every porson
will havo a clear view of the whole
of thetraok. There will also be
a series of boxes for private
parties. The dimensions of the
grand ataud will allow of a seating
cupnoity of 800, but it will bo bo
constructed that it can bo length
ened from either end should pat
ronage warrant it.
The judges' Btand will bo oppo
site the grand Btand but placed on
a level with the track so as not to
obstruot tho view. This will no
cessitato its being built out over
the lake. Ample provision will
bo made for the press, soparata
quarters undor tho grand stand
uud directly opposite the judges
being provided. The balance of
the space undor the grand stand
will bo utilizod for dressing rooms,
training quartors, shower balhu
and other conveniences. Thero
will also bo spaco appropriated
for those ivho purchaso conces
sions for the Hiuo of cignrs, soda
water, etc., on tho grounds.
Conneotod with tho bioyclo track
will bu busobnll grounds of am
ple size. As a matter of fact they
are just 20 feet longer and 30 feet
narrower than the present League
grounds. It is expocted the League
will uao theso grounds whon their
presout 1 Ofiso expires and a separ
ate grand staud will then be
Whilo thoro havo been several
projeots on foot among tho wheel
men in the Inst six months to build
such a track as this none of them
havo materialized, and Glias. S.
Desky finally got tired of waiting
and resolved to build it himself.
It is now so far advanced that
there can bo no going back on it,
and Mr. Desky assures tho Bul
letin that everything in connec
tion with it will bo finished by
Septomber ICth, by which timo an
outlay of over SGOOO will have
On or about that dato it is pro
posed to open a bioyclo tourna
ment, with roco meets every tow
days for four weeks. For this
purpose negotiations have already
beon entered into with a number
of crack Eastern and Ooast ridors
who are now doing tho California
circuits, several of whom havo
promised to come down and stay
a month. Night racing is one of
the new foatures which will bo
introduced during this tourna
ment, for whioh purpose tho track
will be lit up with arc lights
placed about 100 feot apart.
Wight racing has proved very
popular wherever introduced and
is especially adapted to this
climate It also affords a chance
for many to participate whose
daily occupations would other
It should bo mentioned that the
main entranco will be close to
South and King streets and that
abundant provision has beon
made for carriages. Mr. Desky
has not yet decided whether he
will be his own manager or not
but it is likely some popular mem
ber of one of the oycling clubs
will be selected for that post.

philatelist, who now spends most
of his time traveling about in
search of rare postage stamps for
the firm which bears his namo.
This is tho firm, by tho way, that
recently outbid all American
competitors for tho great Ayer
collection, paying therefor a lump
sum of .50,000. Fauoy a quarter
of a million dollars boing paid for
a single collection of postago
stamps. Some of tho stamps in
this collection ore now on the
market, and in the June number
of the Stanloy Gibbous Philatolio
Journal, two Hawaiian stamps of
the 1851 issue are offered for sale
at S350 for the 5 cont blue, circu
lar rod postmark, and 8450 for
tho 13 cent blue (Hawaiian Post
age), fiue largo margins and red
blobby postmark. It is some
years since these two stamps havo
been offered for sale publicly and
tho figures above given may bo
taken as establishing tho present
standard of ther value.

magazine also contains a full des
cription of tho destruction of the
old monarchy and provisional
government stamps, roprinted
from tho Evening: Bulletin, to
gether with a very interesting ac-
count of his recent visit to the
IslaudBT-from which the following
paragraphs are extracted:
"Mention of the Hawaiian news
paper, the Evening: Bulletin, re
minds mo of au amusing expe
rience I had with one of tho on
lookers at the conflagration of
stamps. This gentleman, who was
introduced to mo on the occasion
in question, accompanied mo for
some distance on my way back to
tho hotel, and vory naturally tho
conversation turned to mutters
philatelic. Afterwards I fouud I
talking to a roportor,
with the before-men
tioned newspaper, for in its even
ing edition appoared a column and
a' half, detailing the interview in
full. The heading was, as usual,
in tlio somewhat sensational Ame
rican style. L-copgratujate this
particular mom ber of the Press
on his retentive memory, fclf not a
note did ho take in my presenco,
and yet it seemed to me that very
little had escaped him.-
"There were tho usual particu
lars of my appearance, modes of
business, and past experiences,
all of which havo nlrpady appear
ed in tho pages of this Journal, so
that 1 will not troublo tne reader
with them. I must say, howoyer,
that I had no cause for complaint,
for takon as a whole the matter
was most complimentary. And
horo, perhaps, it may not be amisB
forme to acknowledge tne univer
sal good fellowship and general
friendliness which philately suems
to oucender ninonu its devotees'.
Wherever 1 travel my connection
with Btamps brings pleasant ac
quaintances; indeed, I may say
friends. Ono eays ho has collect
ed for years in one of my albums;
another ia an old correspondent,
and so on, ad infinitum.
"To return to uonoiuiu, it was
with much regret we left this
charming place. Tho season at
the timo of our visit was what tho
Hawaiians themselves torm their
winter, but all 1 can say is that it
was only comparablo to what we
in EiifjliiP'l would call delightful
hot Biiinmor weather not too
warm, but thoroughly enjoyablo
for bathing in tho open bou, and
pleasant at night. Of courso tho
inevitable mosquitoes wore pre
sent, and their peiietiiiliiiu attacks
aftor Hiiusut required a good deal
of equuiiimity of tomporto boar,
Tho American description of tho
climate is, as I have heard, that
people who corao to the islands
buy the climate and havo tho land
thrown in for nothing, tho soil
boing so fortilo that macaroni
sown in the ovening produces
waterpires the next morning.
"A pleasant finish to our stay
wns a picnic wo participated in at
an estate near Pearl Harbor. Tho
dinner was laid in true Hawaiian
fashion on a tahlo-cloth of loaves.
I tried the national dish of "I'oi,"
but cannot say I liked it, for.to,
my mind it respinbloo ruady-madu
bine starch in taste, color, and
consistency, morn than anything
elso J can think of. Mr. Oat. the
Postmaster-Gonoral, paid mo a
farewell visit before leaving, and
he also came down ou his liioyolo
to sue us all off. We left ladon
with flower wreaths, uot only
around our necks, but also deco
rating our hats; and sorry enough
wero we to loivo this happy and
most hospitable inland."
