But one drunk waa registered oa tha

the fourth arrest for droukenneaa in
Honolulu during Its Drat "bona dry"
week. For the week ending March 90
there were nineteen arrests for drunk
enness and disorderly conduct, which
does not include those locked up for
safe keeping and then allowed to go
when they had recovered from their
potations and sent on their way with
n reprimand and a warning to offend
no more. During the week .ending Ap

arrests for drunkenness, just eight
times as many, arrests for this offense,

week of this year.
The presidential order for a "dry

in affairs around the police station.
The riotous aad drunken riff-raff that

and with hungry children trailing at
their skirts, no longer line up before

ruelty aad abuse and ask that a bi

try and straighten out their family af

the past for laboring men to be brought
to the police station, reeling with
liquor; their weeks wages all gone and

The small merchants, soda water

near the Nuuanu Htreajn, where the

there was au air of prosperity that was
strikingly noticeable last night. New

common as on an Kaater parade in

The dismissal of Charlie White of
Chicago as boxing instructor at Camp

official circles at the cantonment and
several officers have written to the war

Floyd Rowe, director of athletics at
the cantonment and representative of
the recreation board, seemingly has
been the storm center of the trouble.
Major General Kennedy, commander of
the cantonment, said he had not been
consulted by Rowe before the latter rec

White began his boxing with siuull
classes and at the time of his discharge

RACE HORSE CLASSES
Twice As Many Paces As Trot

BAN FRANCIHCO, April 20 (Aaso
dated Press) The following classes
were recommended aud adopted at a re
cent meeting of the board of director!.
of the California Fair and Racing Cir
euit to prevail during the coming sea
For Trotters One mile track Free

The meeting of the board, which was
held in Woodland recently developed an
Interesting question which was answer
ed in a manner surprising to a number
of the horsemen present. According to
these men the numbers of pacers on
the tracks was believed to be twice as

Secretary Waddell Pleased
The figures were compiled br Joseph
Waddell, secretary of the organixatinn.
who also recommended the classes which
were adopted as ahove. In commenting
on the matter Mr. Waddell aaid: .
"It costs about twice as much in
time and trouble to develop a trotter
as it does s iiacer. A pacer which is
taken in hand early in the spring may
bo expected to be performing in good
shape by ,fall whereas, tn the ease bf
tbe trotter, it will not be until the
next season that any results of conse
quence may be expected. This natural
Iv led to the conclusion that the pacer
would have much the beat of a census
"In order to be recorded a horse
must be the winner of a race so that
record holders during a season are com
mtrstlvelv few. In spite of this, how
