with one of the finest spurts yet seen on
a Hawaiian track. Yard by yard he
came up until it seemed that he would
cross the line first' but Marcellino had
just enough speed left to cross the line
one yard to the good. Deverill was
half n yard ahead of Alan, who was
pretty well done up by the hot pace.
v Although the meet yesterday was au
individual one, it served as a basis for a
forecast in regard to the Founder's day
field day in December. The Oahu college
athletes carried off five firsts, five
seconds nnd 'wo thirds or a (btal sf
42 imlnts. Kamehameha school won four
firsts, two seconds and one third, or 27
point's. The Mnili llimas scored one
first aud fire second or a total of 20
joints. The high school scored one second
or S points. Although most of these
loys were Y. M. C A. boys .and had been
training ntt the Y. il. C A. quarters, they
preferred to run under their school and

A tall man at Ililo has lighted the

The aboVe mentioned message statM
that forty varieties of food will be served

possibility that the visitors will reach
Honolulu alive and well.
However, local committees arc work-in?
on the theory that the Zealandia will

How haUi yoar lonlAhlp brook'd Imprisonment?
Uattwtft With palleace. noble lord, v
ers Dei-.- King Skimd On Thai.
We are all prisoners: prisoners to oor
habits be they good or be they evil;
prisoners to the counting room, the factory,
the work shop, the dek, prisoners
to poverty and to wealth; aye. prione.is
perhaps, to our religions and our creeds.
Man, multifarious .man. in Ks circumscribed
duties in life as he s?ees them,
is manacled and shackled. He is a prisoner.
But it is not my purpose
uin the various kinds of imprisonment
which we all encounter anJ
which possibly retard our adancemeut
to greater and far more ennobling action
than we now ;rform. My theme is the
outcast of society, he who is thrust aside,
confined behind prison walls, iron bolts
and bars, guarded by armed men. attired
in a striped suit, that the peace and order
of the community may best be conserved.
Nearly every resident in Honolulu, I
take it has noticed and noticed casually,
a gang of men presenting almost a perfect
alignment, with lock-step precision,
marching through the city, while armed
guards surround the passing column.
These men are attired in Ktriped suits.
the striies in most instances being alternately
blue and white, running longi
tudinally through the garb. These stripes
are badges of disgrace, of dishonor ; they
announce blocks away that their wearers
have committed some breach of the peace,
some infraction against the law, thai
they have rebcled against society. These
men are felons from the Oahu penitentiary;
that is, the garb proclaims
them such, but are they? How many
who have casually noticed them passing
ore acquainted with their penological
surroundings : how they fare, "how the-i
are treated, what recreations they have,
if any, and what are their thoughts, good,
bad or indifferent? To my mind a humanely
conducted prison where rigid discipline
and not tyranny shall prevail is
as essential to the interests of this terri
tory as a supreme court, whose member;:,
a majorifj of them, are ignorant of the
constitution of the country in which they

I marched in the streets of Honolu ., "
I wore the garb of a felon, a similar
striped suit to those worn by my associates
in line, for I, like them, was spewed
out of the Oahu penitentiary to toil.
We marched iu pairs, eighteen inches
apart, and regulated our movements to
about forty steps a minute. In the residence
pofrion of the city women and children
as a rule slunk away from us as we
approached. I think it was on Green
street, in front of a handsome residenc,
a little girl, faultlessly dressed, with
fluffy golden hair, through which the
gentle wind frolicked, was playing in the
stret. As we neared this sunbeam, no
doubt, of that home, a shrill voice from
a vine-covered porch was heard: "Darling,
come back, quick; the convicts will
get you !"
"I Wouldn't hurt tte child for' th-:
world," whispered my companion, a good
L have no doubt that in that house of
apparent wealth "the convicts will get
you" is used instead of "the bogie man
will catch you," as an admonition to
check childish glee.
Tfaia incident is vividly impressed upon
Bay mind. As I write I can see that inno
cent little girl scampering with fright
into the yard, not daring to look back.
As we slowly passed I recalled the utterances
of Talbot in King Henry VI :
With scoffs and scorns and contumelious taunts.

yearly in this city to the missionary
cause. Not a breath of censure do 7
offer regarding this work. But isn't it
about time it- this presumed Christian
community, that some penological reforming
work was done in the Oahu penitentiary?
Is it not a debasing spectacle
to see men in striped suits daily parading,
like a drcu, 4jig streets? The majority
of those that appear on the thoroughfares
in felon's dress have been committed for
some trivial crime- Many of them have

zsrb of a convict. He knows nothing
about tin histirv of their cases, but
very property, although erroneously,
classes them as bad men: he don't want
them, They search in vain for employ-In
ment. the meantime the fact that
they have been marched through the
streets in felons drc&s rankles in their
mind. It goads them on; they become
desperate; they commit crime. What
has your perniciou prison system done?
It has made criminals of honest mn.
What other city- in the United States
places prisoners unable to pay a money
fine in striped suits and parades then
through the streets? I say that the
system of the Territory of Hawaii
is infamous i" damnable.
What reformation would I suggest?
This, owing to present , embarrassed
finances of the territory: Incarceration
and incarceration only for all minor of-
lenses. r or. prisoners- sentences lor n
year or more I would teach them some
trade, so that when their time of sentence
expired they could core successfully
battle with life's- struggles. Many
of them being pupils of experience would
become useful aud valuable citizens.
Were I dictator not a prisoner should be
paraded through the streets nnd not one
should ever gaze on a quarry much leos
work in it. But to the subject.
T was pitchforked into the Oahu penitentiary
under strange, marvelous and
wonderful circumstances. I was the lost
political prisoner to tx; cascaded into a
building erected in 1S.7T. The cascading
was done by the late unwepr. unsung and
unhung oligarchy, better a cabal. It was
in direct violation of the constitution of
the United States. The act was the last
expiring gasp of the junto.
Last Tuesday afternoon, while reading
at my residence. Joscphus, the Jewish
historian, there was a tumultuous
banging at the frontdoor that dNturlicl
my charming pursuit; jAn officer entered
and presented sne with a mittimus. It
call-'d for six months' board and lodgin?
at the Oahu penitentiary. J was somewhat
surprised, not at the conclusions
reached by a majority of the court, hut
that the Edwards decision was not promulgated
first, his case having been submitted
to the supreme court many nee.ks
before mine. I invited the o'licer to Do
my trunk, as I was awaie that suitable,
seasonable and becoming clothinz would
be furnished me without cost and without
price. The onjfer disregarded my
for he refused to sit down. Tins
greatly pained me. I noticed, while V
seemingly retained a nonchalant air that
he was nervous, and his right hand
nestled in tho region of his hip pocker
I had occasion to pass into another
room ; he followed me. when the horrible
truth flashed across my mind that, in th-eyes
of the law, and notwithstanding the
passing of that slorious epoch in the h"
of the commonwealth the transition
period I was considered a criminal.
This caused me great consternation for I
hate to be misunderstood. I wrote a
note to Mrs. Marshall not to put tiw
codfish in the oven, for it was very improbable
if I should be home to, supper,
as I had a most pressing engagement.'

It musn't be understood that there are
porcelain-lined bath tubs in the was'i

.plumbing is primitive and there are uo

Shortly after the prisoners had taken
their bath a bell announced supper. I
did not dine with the warden. 1 djd not
place those shoes under his mahogany
table nor eat pate do foi gras from his
ltvard. Not at all! I was pushed into
line by a burly native guard aud I had
my first exiierience vith the lock step.
Up to this time I had felt uo embarrass
ment. I cannot say that I was contented
with my position, hut I was not disconcerted.
But that lock step, together
with those slumping- shoe's, unnerved me.
I couldn't ?et l0 step. My brain was
r,ctive but my feet were slow. They were
weighed down, glued to the earth. We
marched about the yard to the cook
house, where ranks were broken and. eacn
man received his ratKm It consisted
of some partially boiled beef cut in
strips, with suggestion of pqtato, a tin
cup filled with tea, a piece of bread and
two sea blicuit that would take a quartz

In a cell off a narrow passageway I was
placed, the door wa3 closed and locked.
On either side of the passageway there
were cells. My apartment was uncom
fortably hyt. Thre wa no air. It was
an "inside room.' I had a canvas hammock,
and a thin blanket composed the
lidding. The hammock contained only
four feet of a sleeping space- It puckered
up at each end 'iVe a native canoe;
In order to gain any repose I was
compelled to draw my legs together like
a partially closed jackknife. But this
wasn't all. As darkness approached I
heard a" moaning and buzzing sound anl
