Hand Suggests Meeting

That Hawaiian Hack and Held ath

city, during the Hay of the I'loot

Y M. C. A . which he la following up
actively. Tluough these lolumns, hu
suggests a meeting of men icpresent
Ing Knmehanieha School, l'unnhoti
College, the High School, and tho
Y. II. C. A , to arrange such Held
meets, settle dates and details, nn-1
get woiTl of tho coming cents to tho
Fleet, to that tho snllur-tads may get
Into shape to compete with the lo

Honolulu haa much Mint-rate tal

consequence, that the locals should

Where It la expected that local

track. In doping out bucIi a pros

By Mr. Osborn
It looks ns though George Osborn
Is to have tils ktte-Ilylng festival on
Punchbowl hill. Moreover, It Is like
ly to become an annual event that
will not only bring out all tho Jap
anese ntul Chinese for one day of the
J ear but both linolcs and Hnwnllans
ns well, for It Is to be a sort of homel
International contest affair,
Osborn has Interested Japanese nnd
Chinese lu tils project and Is now
seeking co-operation in oAicr direc
tions. At Nagasaki, in Jnpan, some thirty
thousand Japanese; go up the sacred
hill back of the city ono day every
J ear to tly their kites. It Is a won
derful sight, 30,000 gaudy kifes In
the ulr and not ono string crossing
tho other, for the Japanese pride
themselves on their skill In so ma
nipulating their kites that they never
come In contact with each 'other.
Tho Chinese put resin on their
strings and try to saw through the
ton! of a rival, some of them even'
go so far as to attach steel blndcs
every few jards on their cords, mi
that by sawing back and forth, I
'where thousands of kites arc being I
flown, many nre set adrift. I
llrother Osborn Is going to hnvol
tioubles when he opens his contest!
I to all comers. The Japanese who'
: loso their kites nro npt to turn on tho '
Chinese who cut the cords, nnd It Is I
dollars to doughnuts that tho Ha-j
waltan boys, assisted by tho I'ortu-j
gucse, will commissariat any stray!
kites that touch the ground within '
their reach; and that will make nioroi
pllikln. . I
But porhnpa llrother Osborn has.
thought out rules and regulations
and will turn out as who a ninnlpu-,
lator of kites us was the famous Mr. i
"Hick," who taught David Copper-1
Held how to send up volumes of his-'
tory Into the realms of space.
Ij.Thc'Kltc-KIycrs' Association Is, ar'
cording to Mnnngei4 Obborn, to take
charge. of tho winding pathway upi
Punchbowl hl)fr It Is tils plan to'
have, tho JapancaeMiuIjperhapH the,
Hev, . Mr. Usbourn assist In laying
out hnu-trec nnd bougnlnvlllcu nr-i
hois, so that the spectators may In
time nscend the slope beneath '
shady bower. Ho will Ask tho pu-j
plls of tho Normal School to unilor
tal.o to keep tho pathway In older
cni.0 It Is planted. The completion
or tho Nuunnu dam makes It pobHlblo
to carry water to the top of Puhch
lanvl nnd let It come down In a gen-1
tie. zigzagging stream that will wa-
ti. the plants and vines planted lu'
e.uth that will havo to bo carried up
to holes blasted In the rock. j
If Mr. Osboru'o annual kite festi-
v.tl scheme provides the tnccntlvo l
that will create n decorated arbor-'
way up Punchbowl hill, he should bo'
hailed ns a public benofactor. Theie'
Is no lciison why the Japanese nnd I
Chinese Ui Honolulu sliould nut set!
iisl.le a day for the exercise of their
'national sbort, and, If Promoter Os
loin can secure n sufficient number
t-f entrlos from liaoles, llawallanr,
i ,rtugUi.3c, Chlncjo and Japanese by
'l.j 1st of June, ho Intends having
the first eonto3t for the Osborn medal
nought off on toji of Punchbowl hill
next ICaiiiHliamoha Day. The Idea Is

The new Kaala baseball team Is
