Tlio ahovo telegram was received
by tlie II ii I let I it tlilM mornlnc.
mid lnvestlKatioiiH Immediately fol

sale Ii:id been protested by tlio Fer
nandez Settlement Association when
It wan flint ndvcrtUed. On account
or tlio fact tbat amcrnor l'rcnr and
Land Commissioner l'ratt bad Just
left for tlio Co.ist, Attorney Ucncinl
llcnicnway, to wlioin tlio matter had
been referred, icplled tliat bo could
give no complete or definite Infor
Consldcinhlo correspondence pass
ed between bis office and tlio Asso

nite decided about tlio imposition at
tlio time. Fernandez, wants tlio land
under the xetllcincnt association
plan, and it bcems that bo made ap
plication for it a long time bcfoio It
was over advertised for Bale under a
general leai.e. Ho was, however,
turned down by Coventor Ficar an!
Laud Commissioner Piatt.
So far as tlio sale Is concerned. At
torney General Ilemenway states
that ho has lecelvcd no papers as yet
from lllto. and tlie sale will talio
place Moudny unless It Is enjoined.
Again, It seems there Is no reason
why the sale should not go on, Un
der tlio terms of the now lnnd-lcaso
law, tlio Government could tako the
lands haclc again from tlio man who
mnilo the highest bid. At any rate,
tlio man who put In a successful hid,
rould not becuro his lenso until tlio
return of l'ratt, who must be here to
sign tlie papers.
The land In question Is composed
of 308 acics, SOU or which Is suit-'
able for agricultural purp'oses, tlio
lemalning being pastoral and wasto
land. Tho upset rental asked by tlio
Government In tho advertised sale 13
$1052. per J ear, payable, semi-annual
ly In advance, tho term of lcaso Is
eight years from October 1, 1908.

our entertainment In Hawaii should
ho In tho naturo of exhibiting to tho
Fleet those things for which Hawaii
Is k) well Known, to-wlt: Hawaiian
dances and limns? Mr. l'holan stat
ed that If wo eliminated those fea
tures from tho program that univer
sal disappointment would bcl felt,
and said It would bo a very seilous
The Fleet bun been entertained by
n number of tho Oast cities and ex
perience has taught that tho most
popular and taking fcntuic of enter
tainment has been the establishment
of a largo pla -ground for tho sailors,
where they can enngregato by them
selves and play ball, billiards, cards,
and do whatever they wish, as tho
Mayor cald that Jack ashoro wants
to liavo a place of his own, unham
pered by committees, badges, or red
tape. I do not Know whether It
could bo arranged or not, but It
seems to me that Aula Pari; would
be an Ideal place for tho play-giouud
At nny rale, within the course of
u week or two, and as soon as pos
sible, I shall send you everything 1
can get In tho way of nowspaper clip
pings, committee leports, tho Ideas
of Mayor Taylor, Mr. l'helan, Mr.
Hall, Mr. Deck, and otheis, us well
as u buggestlou, based on tho fore
going, of what our plans should bo
for Hawaii. Mr. l'holan snys thut
tho best possible thing that could bo
(Tone would bo for mo to nirango tho
whole matter here to tho satisfaction
of tho olllceis of tho Fleet. Unfor
tunately, this was not duuo by somo
of tho Coast cities, and friction ic
suited between tho committees and
olIlceiB or the I'leot, as well as a fall
tiro of come of the plans of enter
tainment. I am ejpoelally working up tho
Hawaiian featuio or the entertain
ment, alul tho ladles on committed
fualuio, hec.iuso I have been strongly
urged to to do by ovoryono I have
mot In S.in Kiiiuclsco. Ofiouise, I
u-allso that thuro will bo nioro or
leu opposition In tho Islands to en
tcitalnlsi; tho Fleet h giving thorn
Hawaiian dances, loans, and lels,
etc., but thero can bo no question but
what tho (oii'iensua of opinion of th
olllieis and enlisted men that that J
tlio thing expected from Hawaii, and
that (hoy will bo sioatly djsippolnt
ed, anil tho wln.Io uuhIiiob bo a inin
pleto r.illuie, If It Is nut ilnno. May
or Tayloi, James 1). l'holan, all of
tho people limn tho Islands, and nov
el at cnptalii3 of the wa,' vessels, and
a number or tho Bailors have all
been onthuslnDtlo oer their ' prospective-
I ilp to Hawaii, because they
all reel that they will bn entertained
lit the tine Hawaiian stylo.
As ou will teo by the papeis,
there aro a gleat many ladles (wlcs
or tho officers, etc.,) or the Fleet. 1
understand that there will bo In the
ncighlioihood of about one hundred
of tbeso who will bu In Honolulu
during tlio stay or tho Fleet theie,
ami I liavo been told that It would
ho an atii-olute shame IT they well
neglected In our aiinngcnieiits. One
or tho disappointing features or tho
eiitcitalnment In tho Coast cities,
osldo rrom San Francisco, has been
the fact Hint they have been over
looked. And thero is the other sldo
to It, also. Mr. Hall told mo that
tlio thing most commented upon by
loo Fleet thus far was a llttlo Inci
dent that happened In Los Angeles.
Theie, n prominent society woman,
of her own accord, nt her own ex
pense, and asldo rrom tho official re
ception nrrangements, had prepared
a number of buttonhole butonalre",
and she hcisclf presented these to
the enlisted men. This made an wv
ful hit. It must be remembered, al
so, that thu enlisted men, during the
picsent cruise, liavo conducted them
selves In a gentlemanly manner In
every respect. Thsy have shown tho
people of tho world Hint it Is an hon
or to belong to tho United States
Navy: and 1 hao been told that they
appieclato very much, and do not in
tho Kllghtcst abuse miy attentions
which they mny receive from good
women, I therefore strongly urgo
Hint tho ladles of tho Hawaiian Isl
ands Hhould have n prominent part
In our arrangements; Mr. l'he'nn
told me last night at tho banquet
Hint It was not necessary, but that
In San Francisco they had been put
on sub-committees with every pros
pect of success.
Now, tho ten or fifteen thousand
enlisted men (which, by thu way,
they should be cnllid, Instead of
Ballora and Jncl.les) nie going down
to Honolulu with tho Idea of beelng
Hawaiian dances, going to luaui,
etc., and the first thing they get
thero they will bo on the qui vivo for
theso thlng. If wo can gtvo them
in a public, respectable way, umlii
supci vision of the committees and
police, I think wo ought to do so.
I am tending enclosed, an ollici.il
program. I have subscribed to tho
dally papers for a period from April
ICth to Mny 15th, and will now men
Hon Borne of tho features of enter
tainment which have proved success
ful. The Fleet should enter Hono
lulu harbor In single lllc. The har
bor should he cleared for that pur
pose. An anchorage place should
bo arranged for them. Wo will havo
sixteen war vessels, and, I tnlult, a
larger number or auxiliary crart.
Tho nilnuto tho anchor is dropped,
the Hxccutlvo Committee should go
nboard to extend the wclcomo of Ha
waii to AdmlriU Spcrry nnd his staff,
who will bo in" charge. Tho next
thing In order Is tho orflc'al call by
Sperry and staff upon tlio Governor,
after which tho Governor will re
turn the call. Two banquets would
bo required, IT they are on tho pro
gram, as only half or tho onlcers can
attend nt a time, Tho way l was
arranged here tho Governor ot Cali
fornia gave a banquet which was
separate nnd apart fiom tho at
rangements of the reception commit'
tec. Ho appointed bis own commit
teo, which looked after tho whole
business. This might bo done In
Ono of tho grandest features of tho
whole business would bo to ninko ai
inngeiucnts to have ten or fifteen
thousand lels made up nnd distribut
ed by tho ladles of Hawaii.
In tho way ot blglit-seeLng, separ
ato trips could ho arranged Tor por
tions or tho olllcers, and n. portion or
tho enlisted men, by I tap Id Transit,
'busses and automobiles could tako
tho olllcers to the Pall; spoclal trains
could be utilized to tako such as de
sired to visit Oahu plantations; Dia
mond Head could bo seen "with 'bus
ses. Hore, as you will notice by tho
olllclal piogrum, nutomobUo rides
wine given to tho ofllccrs, two being
arranged for. Owing to tho small
number ot machines in Honolulu, I
am afraid this featuio ehould not lis
attempted, unlrvs It wn- limited strict
ly to tho ndm!r-'" and commanders of
tho different wni ships ma1 vcssols.
Ono of the mo?t Important feuturcH
would bo -a largo spiutj of grounj
somowhere, to bo known as tho un
listed men's athletic grounds, whoro
tho enlisted men, unhiimpcred by pro
gram, led tupu, conn nlttees, or any
thing else, could mc ot and enjoy

and you havo enough data at hand to

On every sldo, I heal nothing

Hawaii has a chance to dlstliigulfh

largest, peaceful armada that eer
cross tho Pacific, and I am sure, that
every one, prejudiced or feeling to
the contrary, Is anxious to make her
reception n success In ovury respect,
nnd thu wny to do that, In my opin
ion, as well as In tho opinion of nil.
Is ror tho committee to nuthoilzo mo,
by cable, to proceed In tho matter,
with tho assistance which I cm get
as above mentioned.
Frankly, I am nrrald that I have
gone a llttlo further In this matter
than may meet tho wishes of somo of
tho Honolulu people, but 1 think after
you havo a talk with Taylor and have
digested thu jiewBpapers and my let
ters you will be Inclined to agrco with
what I have done, nnd I hopo It meets
with your satisfaction. Rest assured
that my solo aim In this matter has
been to do something ror our fleet

with tho officers of tho fleet hero nnd
tho prominent entertainers will cur

Plays to quicken baseball defense
far exceed those duvlsed to get men
around the bases, said an old-time
ball player recently.1 Tako a gtoup
of really scientific ball players discus
sing plays and nine times out or ten
they nro talking or Insldo run-getting
plays, yet these fait to materialize,
while tho fielding end ot the game
Is worked to the limit. When ono
speaks ot fielding plays tho combina
tions In which tho pitcher nnd catch
er work aro taken In. Most or those
plays provide for slowing up the run
ner Just enough to let the ball beat
tho man to tho bug or plate. In tilts
group como nil shortened throws from
catcher to second with a runner on
third. Hero tho second basuman may
como In and tako tho throw or not,
as ho thinks best. In enso he lets It
go by tho shortstop tukes ltt A good
batter would as n rule llko nothing
hotter "iban to hmo both tho short
and second baseman breaking lor tho
bac on a steal, which gives him two
tilnccB to slldo a hit through on tho
hit-and-run proposition with tho run
ner on first.
Ilunners havo also found It impos
sible to break flat-footed from third
on an Infield throw from short to first
and score. That Is, tho two throws
would beat him. No ball team, as far
as Is shown, has over figured out ma
thumatlcally JtiBt how much of a strat
such a runnor would need on such a
play to enablo him to stand an oven
bruak of scoilng on two such throwB.
And vet It Is a tilay that comes up of-
ten In closo blg-leaguo games. It Is
bclloved by somo thut tho runner on
third might get as big a Hturt ob tho
runnor on first who tries to steal nnd
gets away with It on two throws from
tho pitcher to the catcher and back
again to tho second baseman. Tho
differences hero Is that tho pitcher
winds moro than an Infloldor would
with Ills throw, which Is short-armed.

THE FLEET ON THE COAST.
Out thero In California
They aro pawing up tho noil,
They aro letting go of hu-im-ss
And neglecting of their toll;
They're forgetting iln-lr ictlglon
In tio house ami on the stieet,
And likewise loo their polltlcB
They're dotty on the fleet.
They nro loading up the Jncklcs
With n cargo of pink teas,
Thoy aro crowding tbein with welcome
As tho heroes of tin sens;
They've taken off the lid of things
And inndo the whole coast froo
For every tarry Usltor
Wlio came to tliein by sea:
Thoy havo Bet the Milhint officers
On pinnacles of fame,
Thoyo filled their elns with native
Which gets theie Just tho name;
They havo given tlietu tho climate
In its glory and Us bloom,
With an aflldaUl showing
It will drlvo away all gloom.
They swim out In the briny deep
By either day or night
To meet tho coming warships
Ilefore thoy get In Bight;
They flock around the anchored Bteei
I.lko fish around the halt.
And shout their Joy along the coast
Up to tho GoMeii Gato.
Out California way,
When the do things
They do "em oil wings.
It'n the boast
Of tho coast
That nowhere ebe on earth Is found
Tho California greet,
And now they're handing out their
They'ro dotty on the fleet.
