to be hoped that If n boxer be brought

mid not so much credence given to
Joo Cohen's iihw scheme, of hnvlng
scrape between loCnl men on Saturday
evenings seems Burnt. There are plen
ty of good men around the city at

mntcbes should be brought oft.
With all tho soldiers on Oahu now,
and most of them spoiling for n scrap,
Mime flno freo willing fights will sure
be pulled off noon. Of course the box
ing will be crude In moat cases, bu'
that will bo made up for by tho dash
and Im that the amateurs will put
Into their work. It Is a treat to watch
u man like Sullivan lint, becausa hu
is a pustinastcr nt the game, but
when ho is only up against r dub, it Is
too one-sided to be pleasant.

ancestral Instincts or smashing the

which is about the biggest extreme
that could bo mentioned.
Talking nbout croquet reminds tho
writer that tho undent game, which
was plnyed for n while out nt the 55oo,
ii few enrs ago. has been revhed by
a bunch of enthusiasts who play reg
ularly every Sunday mid holiday out
lit Kaplotanl Park. Croquet wns ull
the rago nt one time; that was before
tenuis took such a hold on the public.
Still croquet Is not n bad gamo at

lawn might do worbo than Invest In a
few mullets and balls.
Tho cricket match tomorrow bld
fair to bo u record-breaklii' event. The
otllcer. of the Flora have contributed
live of their mess to the team; this
number of players, together with tho
six from the Cambrian makes up tho
full elewn. And a ery good team It
appears to bo too. Gencinlly speaking,
tho weak point In n ship's cricket team
Is the luck of bowlers. Tho reason U
that whenever the ship gels into port,
uud the men go ashore for a practice,
everybody Is willing, in fact anxious,
to !mo a tiy with the bat, but not ab
solute'y dying with Impatience to
bowl, Consequently tho team becomes
strong in tho batting department mid
fulls away In tho bowling line,
However, tho naval men have at
least two good bowlers who may bu
relied upon to "shiver tho timbers" of

mid hus a good offbrcak which ho uses

start about 11:30, and lunch mid af
ternoon tea will bo dispensed by the
wles, sisters and Hwee.tlienrts of tho

pitcher, sailed on tho China yesterday,
en route for tho Coast. Renter has
been signed to play for tho Pueblo
baseball team, and should niako good
If tho cold weather does not Interfere
with his form.
A large crowd of baseball players
turned up nt the dock to heo lteutor
off, and lets were much In evldeuo.
Dick teemed to feel his parting with
Honolulu a lot, and no doubt will miss
tho warm weather, and think kindly of
oven tho awful sample of "liquid" with

Router Is n heady pitcher, and will
mako the Puublnltes sit up und take
notice when ho starts putting them
across the plate. He has pitched tomo
great ball in Honolulu, und mado a
good Improssloii on (hu mombers of

how Renter makes nut on tho iiiulu

"I! I Can Get Fit
tfure I'll Fight
J. J, Jeffries, ex-world' champion
boxer, wan Interviewed In Chicago
lately, and Judging from the trend of
his remarks, It only seems a matter of
time till a match Is made between
"Daddy" Johnson and the big fellow.
Jeff weighs 245 pounds at present,
and Is rapidly reducing his weight. He
Is reported to linvo snld thnt ho was
very pleased with the way he was get
ting Into condition. The first definite
statement from Jeff, according to a
Chicago report, Is that the bollermak
or will fight "Dearie" If nil goes well
with Jell's training. "If I find that I
can get really fit, I'll get back Into tho
ring and tacklo Arthur," Jeff Is quoted
to hnc Bald. "Out the match will
not come off for a year or so, us I huve
vaudeville engagements for a long time
to come. It all distends on my .being
able to get fit and well." Wow! Is
not that great news? Fight? Sure
they will, nnd what kind of a scrap
will It bo too? Get nt! Well that 1b
the tfouljle, can the big fellow get
back his old form? He muy, nnd he
may not, but one thing Is certain nnd
that Is the white und the black will
mix It sooner or later In tly? ring nnd
"Llttlo Arth" will sure linvo a (ought
or contract with tho 220 pound Jeff
(han he did with wee Tommy Uiirns.
The next thing we probably will
hear Is that tho match is made. Where
will It bv fought? All sorts of wild-cut
offers have been muilu by small ll
luges which want to be put on the
map, but tt-to-datc the best ofTer has
tome from Australia. Tho "coves"
down under hnvo offered Jen" 150,000,
win, lose or draw, and It Is hard hi seo
where u lurg'e genuine offer li coming
Jeff's statement is the best bit or
news that tho tight funs hate heard
1 Notwithstanding tho bad weather
during tho past toil days or so, tin
.Cambrian oftlceri have managed to
have u few games of golf. On Sunday
last a few of the naval men visited
the Country Club, und although It
rained Bomowhat, enjojed a few
rounds of the links, Tho Country Club
is looking very well Just now und the
visitors thought the scene, although
somewhat damp, cry pretty. The ten
nis court was In good condition consid
ering tho rainy weather, and It is lit
tendon to bring off a 1)!;: tournament
In the ncur future.
On Friday the Cambrian buuch ls-
Itcd Moanaula, and were delighted with
tho place. Many comments on Mr.
Damon's liberality were passed, und
all united in suylng that they wished
there wero more men scattered over
the world llko he Is, for then beauty
spots would abound In every ort of
call, Now that the rain has stopped u
little, the outlook for tho officers hav
ing a good time appeara bright. They
have taken In tho dances at the Moana
hotel, und huvo enjoyed themselves
very much. All anxiety us to tho stylo
of two-step danced In t Honolulu has
been alluyed, and tho gallant young
offlcem, busy at present at tho dirty
work of coaling, may bo heard hum
ming, under their breaths, snatches of
"Aruwunn," uud other favorite feet

Polo Is Going
To Boom On
Walter Dillingham, who Is away on
tho Coast ut present, may bring down
some polo ponlea with him. So tho
rumors around town go, and It seems
very feasible on the face of it too. Polo
Is going to bo n great favorlto sport bn
Oahu In tho near future, and now that
tho I-ollehua ofllccrs huvo their small
bteods out ut tho cantonment, and ntu
gettlnc them tit for tho game, things
look bright In tho polo Hue.
Maul Is also st'rring herself and will
bo heard from very soon. Kuuul Ij
not or backward, and even Hawaii N
thinking of taking a hand at the pop
ular sport. Hlloi and district should
bo able to turn out somo good men and
ponies; all that is wanted la somo one
to'stlr tho plantation men up nnd they
will do (he rest.
Nothing definite has been bottled
about tho opening polo game of the
season, hut no doubt when Mr. Dilling
ham returns, things will begin to hum
Frank llaldwln, of l'uunene, good ml
round sportsman tliut lie Is, always Is
willing (o lend a helping hand, and
may bu relied upon to do his best to
get tho Maul team Into shiiiHi for n
match ugulust tho nrmy cincks, Let
