All thin apropos, of tho decision given
by tin! Judges of. the ten-miles cham
plnnchlp. which was. run at the Ath
letic Park on Saturday InM.
The racu was given to Kaoo, who
never finished, and Tsukamoto, who
really won by' a foot, was placed sec
ond. The judges evidently .did not know
the difference between n baseball
i match and n footrace. The other offi
1 clals knew less about tho Rime. The
whole layout was, tjoro like a comic
opera than anything- else and, finally,
the Itllo runner was robbed of first
Not for k moment Is tho integrity o'
the Judges questioned. They, aro up
right, honest men. nut. and a big
"but" at that, they were utterly rnla
taken as to the rules and rcgulatlonr
To win a footrace (he winner must
cross the finishing line first. In othct
words, he roust bo the first to break
the worsted, or breast the tape.
In this particular instance there wal
no tape stretched at tho winning line
No such Idea entered tho hoads of th
"oxiiertfl" who were In chargo of the
event. A whitewashed line Indcatc'
tho exact finish. It was four nr five
Inches wide, and It Is quite possible
that ono runner could pass one side
of tho line whllo his opponent would
only be lovel with the other, side A
difference of four or flvo Inches, and
how many world's championships have
toen won or lost by that number ol

Out no, .when within eight feet, of the
line ho made a spectacular dlvo' for

having mlsjudgod his dlstanco, landed
with bis hand more than throo Inches
from the wltewashcd line!
He? saw that he was short of tho

error should be. made In what was
really an International event, and It Is
to be hoped that, If over' any such
events aro brought off, again, that com
petent men tiro appointed on tho list
i of officials,
The whole affair was mismanaged,
and the climax was when the Judgeb
gavo their decision! The' prestige of
' the white- man. 'as sports, was tarn-
Irhed on Saturday, and tho best way
out of the dlfllcuty Is to glvo Tsuka
moto first prlxe, And .then let the ad
mirers of Kaoo get a, purse together
and, at tho second attempt; .did touch
lho line. , '
Tsukamoto, In the meantime, passed
tho wnnlng post and did so boore
Kaoo's hand touched, tho Jlne.
And as to touching tho line,1 that
does not count worth five cents. As a
matter of fact Kaoo, did not complete
tho ten miles course on Saturday, and
has not yet done so elthorl He never
crossed tho winning line.- and oven
when his fronds pekod him ;up and car
rled him on to tho ccntcrfleld, thoy did
not carry him across tho IImj-
The Japanese won tho race and tho
present writer, who was seated on a
lino with tho finish, and who was cool
and collected and making notes all the
time, Is In a far bettor poaltort tofaay
who .won- the raco that-u lot of excited
Individuals who wcro-surrounded by a
yelling mob of spectators.
Tho morning paper statos that Kaoo
touched tho' winning line, two' seconds
ahoad of Tsukamoto,
A moro absurd statement Is Impos
Biblo to Imagine
Does the' sporting writer for tho
Tlser know what two seconds repre
sents In a foot race? '
In first-class company, where 100
yards lsalways covored'ln 10 seconds,
2 seconds represents 20 yards!
Now Knoo and Tsukamoto wore by
no means running at that roto of apecd
but they certainly covered the last 100
for him. v.

'Now for a more pleasant duty.. The
vrltcr has seen' many, many lio racea
but outside of a couple or uo-yaras
championship, cannot remember ever
seeing a moro exciting or brilliant fin
ish than tho old "Walalua Horse" made
In the face on. Saturday. ,
Tho 'old chap made the pnee from
'lie crack of the pistol, and although
ddlson dashed oft for a, tew lays at
the start, and ran' himself out, Kaoo
was the man who stood the brunt of
tho raco f- mile after mllo
Kaoo's even pace, and easy style
.vas' beautiful to see. Ho loped atoog
like a deer, and people who remem
bered what the old ped had .done In
'he past, over short distances, began
to think that tho Walalua man would
outsprlnt tho Japanese at tho finish.
Tsukamoto has an easy, graceful
atyle of running, and has a tremend
ous stride for a man of his site. Ho
contented himself With letting Kaon
make the paco for the whole distance.
The rest of the field, with the ex
ception of Charlie, Cordeiro and Jack
son were In the "also ran" class.
At eight miles Jackson wa? over
lapped and out or the raco as far as
first place went Charlie, was running
a beautiful raco and Cordeiro was' go
Ninth and Tenth Milts.
At nlno milos Kaoo still led with
Tspkamoto second, Charlie third, Cor
deiro fourth and Jackson-ovnrjapped
-fifth. The first flvo laps'ln the tenth
mile wero merely a repetition nf All
rrht Last Lap.
,YVhon the two leaders entu-eJ on
the last lap they both dashed oat Jlko
an arrow from a bow. The paco wa
terrific and looked more like the .start
of a quarter-miles run than anything
At tho flrsturn the flying peds were
blocked and Jostled by a couple of
"has been" or "nover was" runners,
who for somo unknown reason, still
stuck to the track, although fur be
hind. Kaoo and Tsukamoto both liH a few
yards through these would-be runners,
but quickly got Into their stride agsln,
At the second turn the1 men wero
running oven, and tho spectators oamu
to tholr feet with a yell. .FUgs were
waved and sober-minded cltlscns wont
At the Last Turn.
Just as the runners nearcd the turn
beyond third base, Tsukamoto forged
ahead for a few yards. Then did the
old Walalua Horse show hit mettle
ninl paco, ,
Clinching his teeth, he made his last
effort, and tho final hundred yards
I was covered at a pace that wa. mar-
veldiis, considering the distance the
men had already run.
. Kaoo. was at. his top speed but nobly
did Tsukamoto respond. Ills final
challenge wai made sixty fca from
the finish, and he got to within a foot
. The cicltement was Intense as It
was seen that the finish was to be so
;tose. Tho Japanese section was fran
tic, and the yelling was. something tu
be remembered In the future.
Within eight feet of the winning
post Kaoo dived for tho lino, but fell
short and Tsukamoto won by a foot.

Local lovers of tennis will be
treated to some flue tennis whllo the
fleet Is In port, as the Inter-fleet
tournament will be started some day
this week, probably on Wednesday,
and some of the best players In the
riaVy will be seen In action.
Paymaster Nicholson of the U.
8. South Dakota la considered to be
one of the best playera In the ser
vice, and It Is very possible that he
will play against Oce, the local
champion, before ho leaves.
Through the courtesy of the offi
cers of tho Ueretanla Club, tho
courts of that club will be used for
the matches, and no doubt a large
number of local society people will
be on hand, to watch tho games.
Another crack pair of players with
the fleet are I.leut. Landenbcrgcr
and Ensign, Parker of the U. 8. S.
Tennessee, who will no doubt mate
up In the doubles together.
H.CC. Team Defeat
On Saturday at the Mnklkl cricket
grounds the Honolulu team defeated
n combined eleven from the two
HrltlBh boats now In port. It was
nn exciting game, nml for n time It
looked as If tho local men would bo
The II. C. C. put up a score nf 93,
and the sallois could only respond
with 54. There was not time to
play two innings, nnd the game hnd
to be decided on the first.
A ,falr slird crowd Journeyed out
'n the ground, nml the play was
watched with great Interest by ev
erybody. A return mntch Is In the
nlr, nnd tho probabilities are that
fhe sailors with n little prnrtlce will
put up a much better fight anil make
the II. C. C. pile up a big total of
runs to win.
Out In Australia they lire nil agog
over the piOHpect of u match be
tween Tommy limns mid Sain Lang
ford. The sporting papers there
make It appear that the matter is
as good ns arranged and that Pro
moter Hugh Macintosh wilt send the
men tnncther at the Ittislictillers liny
dtadium, near Sidney, miiiiu timo
luring the coining summer. This
Involves the explanation- that thu
summer Is approaching in Auxtralin,
the seasons, being directly opposite
to what thoy nro hero.
It Is evident, however, that thu
Australian sports are doomed to dis
appointment. Macintosh, who sailed
.or Ijinilon from New York today,
ways that hn bus abandoned thu
natter on ureount of the high terms
Icninnded by Hums., Tommy wanted
$20,000 for his share of the plun
der, and In view of tho fact that
3urns Is no longer tho ' world's
hamplun, Macintosh cannot see his
way to conform to Tommy's view
nd make the venture a surcehS.
Aibuliiinsh, by the way, still has
hopes of lauding the Jeffries-Johnson
'affair, la a communication to
an Australlaj sportlnc writer lie
.wrote .thut he had an" assurance, from
Jeffries that Knglund would be re
garded as a suitable battleground If
Jeffrlos received his price,
"I don't know exactly what Jef
fries will ask when the time comes,"
wrote Macintosh. "I have offered a
purse of 10,000 pounds ($00,000)
and 1 believe It Is tho biggest
amount of real money that has been
placed before Jeffries and Johnson.
The offer still stands, nnd I have an
Idea It will attract attention from
the big fellows when the bids aro
being sifted out."
