Myrtles Claim Foul,
Take Freshman Race
Although all arrangements had been made with the idea of starting
todays races on time, and everything wsterday seemed to point to the
first race being scut oft' at y o'clock siiarp, there wa the usual delay.
There may be some good reason for this but none is apparent at tlie
prestnl writing. The blame, if there is any. does not lie with am one,
two 'or three persons, hut probably with a whole group. The judges'
pontoon was placed in position last night, the launches engaged bv the
officers of the da were plying about at an early hour. Kcrything was
m readiness, but yit the boats in the first race were not on the line until
The judges' pontoon was naturallv the most imnortaiit nlaci- !
iheharbor. When the first race was
csides the officers, the following:
Harry Kvans, Charles 11. Gray, R. lieverley Kiild and Allan Dunn ot
i the Star. H. .M . Ayres of the Advertiser, "the IJulletin representative,
!. D. Tciuiey, lidmund N'orrie of the Independent. James (i. Spencer,
Chros. Willis, Fred. Harvey. George Harris, Prince David Kavvn
nanakoa, Prince Cupid Isalanianaole, V. V. Sabin of the Republican,
and a number of others.
The pontoon was most comfortably fitted tip. A number of sails
have been spread over a framework awl chairs sufficient in number to
accommodate all have been set about iii advantageous positions. A long
table runs nearly the entire length of the pontoon, and it is here that
the officers of the ly and their friends arc regaling themselves.
Flung at the fore of the txmtoon is an American (lag. and ne.M
to this, on a line extending the length of the pontoon, is another Amer
ican flag, followed by the old Ilrewer house flag. Then come flags and
pennants of all descriptions, with a Hawaiian flag at the stern. TJu
decoration is the work of Harry Kvans, whose interest in all sporting
events never smik to flag.
vAt about y:,,u o'clock things
f borttlijset oil at the stem oi the pontoon, was fired and, as if, by 'magic
J the belated officers of the day came scrambling over the sides. 'I be
tug F.leu and the small launches on duty came alongside, received th-ir
if orders and went puffing away. The Kleu started away to the railroad
wharf for the start of the first race, carrying judges-and timekeepers.
SIX-OARKD SUDI.VG-SEAT." -
As bad been anticipated, this. race was the best of the morning
Moth crews wire on their mettle, and, although' thd:cVnsensus of jopiniou
seemed. to be thAt:the Healanis would' win, there! wire! many who dio
not give up their faith in the red and white.
It took some little time for. the two boats to get into, position, but
when they did it was not long before -the .starting shot wa fired, and'
the two iJoats. the Myrtles 'matika and the Healanis makai, were oft on
their trip to the spar buoy and return.
The Myrtles took' the lead from the start and kept increasing
it until thev arrived at the pontoon, when they were a full length ahead.
It was (there that the Healanis got up a little more steam and shot up,
almost covering the length's difference. As the two boats were making
the long turn to the lighthouse it looked for a short time as if they would
surely foul. However, the Myrtles steered a little up from their course
and averted the danger.
At the lighthouse turn the Myrtles again took an unquestionable lead
of a couple of lengths, but the Healanis could not be lost. They pulled
up in such fine style that, at the channel buoy, it was a case of neck and
neck. This continued far out to a jwvtition near the spar buoy, and it
seemed as if the two boats rounded their respective flags at the same
time. . .
The two lioats came up into the wind at a fast clip and, all the way
up the channel, it was nip and tuck. Approaching the lighthouse, the
Myrtles were slightly ahead, and as they rounded this point to come
home to the finish, the Myrtles showed over a length of clear water.
It was shorllv after the boats passed the lighthouse that the Healatii
boat was seen lo'juiup out of the water. There was a cheer from the
wearers of the blue, and then the two boats came closer together. Just
then there was a splash and the Mvrtle Ixiat was seen to waver. A dis
tinct splash was seen and So. 4 of the Myrtles uearl.v went off Ins seat.
l'he,Healanis shot out ahead and won in 13:59, while the Myrtles stop
ped rowing and came to the line slowly.
Coxswain . V. Harris -claimed a foul for the Myrtles, sajui;;
that No. 2 of the Healanis had struck the oar of No. 4. knocking linn
off his seal. The protest was taken into consideration by the judges ami
a decision was to be 'rendered later.
CITID'S GIG, KAXOKLAXI, WINS.
There were three boats in this race the Kapiolaui, with Prince
David Kawananakoa as coxswain : the Kanoekmi. with Prince Cupid Ka
lania'naole as coxswain, anil the Alex. R., with George Harris as cox
swain. The boats lined up in the order named, from the pontoon Vauka.
There was nothing violent in the beginning. The three boats started
oil in good style and took a fair clip, keeping well together out. the
8 It was different outside. There was a brisk wind and a heavy swell.
Prince Cupid had the best crew and came up the channel at a brisk
pace, finishing a full sixteenth of a mile ahead of George Harris' crew.
Cpniing up the channel, Prince David's stroke oar played out and
the Prince himself jumped in and took the oar. The Kapiolaui finished
about a sixteenth of a mile behind the Alex. R.

UP TRANSITION PERIOD
Deputy Attorney General's Statement
in Court-Supreme Court
Will Be No Longer
"I am authorized to state officially
the policy of the government In these,
.ascs will be to follow -e ruling of thu
Circuit Court and tne t'nltrd States
District Court and to endeavor to re
indict all those convicted and sentenc
ed for Infamous crimes during the so
called transition period. In cas no
Indictment Is found for lack of evi
dence the government will order a re
lease of those who are not Indicted."
This announcement was made In tho
Circuit Court yesterday afternoon by
Deputy Attorney (Jsneral fleorge A.
Davis, and means that the government
Itself has deserted the law proclaimed
by the Supreme Court Justices Krear
and Perry In the noted habeas corpus
rases. Mr. Davis said he made the an
nouncement on high authority and It
is confidently nsscrted that this
authority is Governor Dole. Thus Dole
himself has found It necessary to de
sert the majority Judges of the Terri
torial Supreme Court. Chief Justice
Krear and Justice Perry have their de
cisions as souvenira and as souvenirs
they will remnln. No court or lawyer
In the Territory recognizes these deci
sions as law.
Shortly after this announcement waj
made Foreman Prince David of thu
Grand Jury told Judge Gear that tho
room they were using was Insufferably
hot. Judge Oar directed that tho
Grand Jury use Chief Justice Hrear'a
chambers. This morning a big Yale
padlock adorns the out door of the
Chief Justice's room, u ulde appear
ances Indicate that the Chief Justice
had gon out of business and his deci
sions are to be sold at a sheriff's sale.

Grand Jury was not needed, J
