American newspaper, replied as follows:
"Harper's Weekly is by no means as much opposed to beer as you
t arc. It believes that pure beer, properly made and aped, is a much less
hurtful beverage for the common run of people than spirits of any kind. "
We think of beer as an article of diet: you seem to think of it only as an f,
article of riot. Of couneMt is more dangerous than bread or cheese, or
even than meat, but it is not the horror that you think it is. We have
. ' . known, intimately, persons who drank a little beer at times, who did not ,
seem to be useless. We do not recommend beer as a beverage to any- , ,H'
body. The doctors do, sometimes; that is their office, not ours. But we ' -
think that for the common run of people who are not abstainers a little ' r
beer is a safer drink than a little whiskey, and a great deal of beer
somewhat less dangerous and destructive than a great deal of whiskey.
We have always favored the army canteen where beer and light wines
were sold in limited quantities as being far less destructive than the bad ;
drinks that soldiers have been getting in bad places, since people who - ;',
fed as you do got the canteen closed. The results of that aotion has -
been to give our army the worst hospital record of any civilized army in '""..

debt of grntltudo they owe to B. M.
Damon for the great service ho has
done to tho polo men of tho Terri

dition for tho Inter-lslnnd tourna
monts the magnificent Moanalua

f silver loving cup as n small token
of their appreciation of his gener
ous and public spirited course.
In pursuance of this desire, the
cup was obtained by ono of tho
Oahu players, representing nil three
team", and presented to Mr. Damon.
nnd tho following tetter from lilm
expresses his gratification:
Charles A. Rice, Esq.
Captain Kauai Polo Club,
Dear Sir: It was with genulno
surprise and great pleasure that I
received the handsome loving cup
sent on behalf of the polo teams of
Oahu, Kauai and Mnul. Your club
has certainly been most gencraus In
their expression of appreciation, and
I shall always keep the cup In re
membrance of, them.
I remain, jours very truly,

One of the Oahu plajers wroto to
the Kauai captain about the pre
sentation, nnd among other things
he said: "I met Mr. Damon at the
planters' meeting day before jester
day, and he spoke to mo about tho
lup, which Angus had Just sent up
to the house, and said that he felt
Indebted to the polo team for popu
larizing Moanalua and that ho was
very much touched nt our thought
of him as expressed by the cup."

by Drown, also Joined In the fun.
and, ns the boat la ubout thirty feet
long, the contrast she formed with
the little craft was remarkable.
The Gladys allowed the small
boats a liberal handicap, and then
flow down tho harbor In pirsult. The
only boat to keep ahead of the
Glad) a for any time was tho one
sailed, by Luther Hough, but at tho
marine dolphin the big bout passed
her, and Drown proved what he could
do with an) thing that can float.
Of the small boats the Poarl was
first, Koloa second, Ivy third. The
race was Bulled between showeis,
and Just as the boats crossed thu
