Strange n It may tem, regatta days
In Honolulu have ever dawned bright
nnd clear as If lending encouragement
to those tnklng part and thoso out to
enjoy themselves. ' .
The steamer Planter, tho flag boat of
tho Honolulu Yacht nnd Ho.it Club nnd
A. F. Cooke's steam launch are men
tioned. The harbor Is certainly a little
better off today when It Is a question of
steamers and launches.
It was In that year that Judge W. I
Wilcox alled the Henlnnl nnd bent tha
Pauline nnd llaumen with what the
Bulletin terms "ridiculous ease." Tho
slx-oared sliding sent rnco wnB tho
event of the day. Unlike today, there
were five boats In the raco nnd tho
Myrtles In the Stranger won by ten
seconds. Their crew was ns follows:
O. Branch, stroke; II. Robertson, l

SCENE - ON -
Itcgatta Day opened with cloudy
skies, from which fell occasional driz
zles. It goes without saying, how
ever, that all Honolulu turned Its faco
to the water front and mostly lit. good
time for tho first race at 9:30.
At the Myrtlo nnd Healanl boil
houses, both clubs having published
omnibus Invitations to all their frleiuh,
thcro aro gay throngs of people. Wo
men and children have at both places
cxrellcnt points of vantagu for view
ing the races, with choicest lefresh
ments well served thrown In at the
testing hour. Tho balconies of both
houses exhibit a knleluscoplc mats of
vibrating an fluttering holiday milli
nery and drapery.
Tho boat houses are less profuacly
decoratdo with flags and streamers
than on somo former occasions of the
kind. The samo remark Is truo of the
shipping In tho harbor, although :i
few largo vessels arc In full dress.
Tho float of tho Judges is, however, far
superior In npearauco to nny that ban
been seen In previous regattas. It has
n symmetrical awning of pitched roof
form nil over It. The scheme of brlsht
colored bunting decorating tho float
rankes It tho most beautiful object In

As tho boats were Hearing the boil

nt full speed. In order not to lute"-1
fere with the boats she stopped half
wny to the entrance to the channel.
An Unfortunate Accident.
An unfortunate neddent happened
near the bell buoy so that tho raco
could not be finished. Major McCar
thy, who was out on the tug tells tho
"The tug was following the boats
along. Just a little past the spar hour,
n Japanese fishing boat got In the wuy
and forced tho M) riles to go far to
leeward In order to avoid a collision.
This gave the Healauls tho advantage
and they gained about two lengths.
Tho Myrtles pulled up Into the course
again nnd stnrtcd In to pull In good
"Just ns tho boats were n hundred
yards or moro from tho bell buoy, tho
Healanl boat was swamped on account
of tho very rough sea outside. The
Myrtles kept on pulling and smiled a
very bioad smile as they passed tho
wearers of the bluo In their cripple 1
"Tho Myrtles rounded tho bell bur.y
and Just ns they reached tho plneo
where they smiled their smile, their
boat nlso wns swamped.
"The Klnau lowered u boat and went
to tho as8lstuncu of tho boys. Com
modore Ilcckley was In command. An
other boat picked up tho Myrtle h'jys,
whllo tho Klnau boat rendered what
assistance they could to tho HualanlJ."
