r v OAIIU HAY SEND POLO TEAM TO M ' If Valley Islanders Can't Come Here Some of the Locals Will Visit Puunene Although Oaha holds . the inter lsiand polo championship, there Is a possibility that no tournament for the truphy will be played here thi year. From Maul comes the rumor that It may be Impossible for Captain Frank Baldwin's Valley Island slashers to spare the time for a polo pilgrimage this summer, and as Kauai is a doubt ful quantity, this would leave only the Fourth Cavalry to challenge for the cup.' The latter team can hardly be considered as a serious contender against last year's Oahu; team S. A. Baldwin, Harold Castle,' Walter Dil lingham and Arthur Rice wh'ch Is ttM Intact All these men played on the Coast last spring, and they have Improved their combination and indi vidual play-since last year, when they defeated Jtfaui In a hard match, and then made mincemeat of the Fifth Cavalry team. Unless Maul sends over a team, then, the cup Is prac tically . aafe.- .-"-O; However, if the Valley - Islanders can't play here in the championship event, some of the Oahuans are ready to cross the water and become the invaders for a changed Of course such ' a match would not be for the inter-island "championship, for as the cup Is held; here, Oahu has the right vto defend it at home. Also, the team ihat would go to Maui would probably not be the No. 1 ; lour of the local ' club.' , ..- : : The probable date for the invasion of Maul is at the time of the Harvest Home festival in 'August, when the - annual big doings. come off at Puu nene. To add polo to the list of at tractions, would be a big card all .. round. : Game Yesterday, . There was a -lively, polo practice at Moanalua yesterday, and although it was not until 4:45 o'clock that the ball was put in play, the stick swingers managed to get - Jn practically four periods of play before darkness . fell. The short field, was used, In order to save the ponies, which are hardlyMn condition yet, vand also to give the makai end of "the field a chance to harden a .little." On 'account of the restricted field, scoring was compara tively easy, and luck cut a consider- able factor in. the goals earned. V Yesterday's game was an impromptu affair .between the Oahu Raiders, cap- tained by R. W. Shingle, and the Cit tus Belts, under . . the leadership , of Harold Castle The latter von.

Two recent recruits to polo, Fred Wichman and H. G. Smart, are8howlng good form in both hitting " end horsemanship, and may be ex- pected to give a good account of them selves before the season is much old er. They are getting invaluable coach ing from Walter Dillingham, who Ii this year devoting4 his time to the re cruits, both bumnn and equine, and in this they have the' advantage over a number of players who have to stArt in a haphazard way, and then unlearn many bad faults. ! There will probably be a game ar ranged for Saturday afternoon In - which the Raiders will take the field with; the full team that is to play against the Fourth Cavalry on the 28th; and will go up against a picked team of local players. Yesterday the Raiders' combination was badly brofc- en up because they were without Wal . er Macfarlane. who is Plated to plav . No. 2. This brought Shingle in to No . 3. and Andrews from S to 2, while Dillingham, who was riding absolutely green ponies and of course wasn't go ing to take chances of iniuring them tn a scrub game, was enticed away from his pony school to. fill In at back :fr tw?

F. Dillingham's mare; also played splendidly in the matches againat England, is the gratifying news contained in a cable from Malcolm Stevenson to Walter Dillingham, ; received yesterday. Stevenson, who was chosen to play back on Uie Keene team -f at Coronado last winter, said in his cable that F. F. Baldwin's pony Dandy, the third of the Ha- wailan strtng ' sent to Meadow Brook, bad never become : accli- mated, and had therefore not been used. This explains . why Dandy did not figure In the pho- tos and news stories of the prac- -f tice matches.

This school is rat ed by foreign officers as being super ior to the French " school at Saumur or its nearest rlvel, the school at Han over. ; The America mounted, school nktdeled after the French school In methods l& entirely a school for off i cers as far as the purely equestrian portion of the course h concerned, but in the foreign schools, notably the Italian, the training of selected non commissioned officers and privates has established a high degree of effi ciency among the rank and file. The "cpneorso ippico.militare" as, the an nual competition;! '.called .is partici pated . In by.iill grades. A subaltern officer, .a, non commissioned; .' officer ten ttnr privates iTfofif 'UtK&rTm twenty-nine regiments of Italian, cav alry are selected to take part in this yearly competition and try to win for thefr regiment the king's challenge cup or one of the six silver shields of fered to the best regiments and held by them for' a year ' V ., o .TWs competitlpn is a comparatively recent institution. . It' was established about six or seven years ago when the cavalry' training was thoroughly reor ganized in Italy, and it constitutes an annual public examination of effici ency in the Italian cavalry. The com mander of each cavalry regiment must hold preliminary trials during the year in order to select the best officer and the best six men to represent the, reg iment at the annual competition at Tor dl Quinto. The unit from each regiment must be mounted on the reg ulation cavalry chargers, which are generally cross-breeds, although some regiments have recently been supplied with Sardinian horses. Officers com manding units are, however, permit ted to ride their spare chargers which as a rule are English thoroughbreds. Four days before the competition begins, all the units, in full. war. equip ment,' assemble at Tarious points around Rome situated exactly 136 miles from the city. It is immaterial how the units cover the, distances be tween .their .garrisons and . the start ing points, provided , they assemble four days ahead of the competition at points the required distance from the capital. As a rule ; the caalry regi ments stationed - in northern Italy, in the extreme Bouth and in Sicily send their units and mounts by train to the starting points. Those regiments stationed in or near Rome i ride out and await the arrival of the other units until the order 'is given to start for Rome. The endurance test then begins. AH the unittf start separately to wards Rome and are expected . to cover, the .entire distance of 136 miles in four days. The, commanding offi cer of each unit must make allowance for bad roads and bad weather and arrive with his men and horses not only within the time limit but also In good condition. Each unit ! upon ar rival is inspected by the judges of the competition, among whom are includ ed veterinary officers, who thoroughly examine the horses and disqualify any that are not In an excellent condition or who show greater exhaustion than they would under campaign condi tions or who seem unlikely to be able to meet the tests to follow the endur ance ride. The units then take two full days' rest and on the morning of the third they must be ready to go through two hard tests of endurance, speed and jumping. In the forenoon each unit must cover nineteen miles over a . cross-country course including broken ground, steep inclines which they must both climb and slide down, and natural objects such as fences, banks, wall and gates. This distance must be covered by each unit in not more than three hours ind a half. On the afternoon of this same Jay the units must run a steeplechase over a 2181 yard course with the reg ulation ten obstacles. These two tests take place Irrespective of weather . conditions.

Both the brilliant Waterburys were dropped, L.f B. Stod dard and Malcolm Stevenson taking their places. Only Devcreaux Mllburn was retained from the old V Meadow Brook four and he was switched from back to No. 2. 'x , .This 'selection was announced by the American. Polo Association June 4, and a more sweeping change in the cup defenders could hardly have been made. :.....:. : .'.;.'. i The eleventh hour shift In the team came only after .Captain Whitney, be came convinced- that, the 'old com'blna tion was way off form, that dissension was rampant ambng the members and that the chances of defeating the Brit ishers in the series were exceedingly fclim. Harry Payne Whitney even sac rificed himself for the new change that would give this country increased strength. Foxhall Keene, who was slated to captain the newly .' arranged four, was a member of the. 1886. team and wa3 considered without peer in the finesse of the game.'- In all of his country.

In 1899 C. E. Haggett went to Stockholm and became the professional at the Royal Swedish Club. Here he gave lessons to the king, Prince William and the crown prince and princess. Haggett trained the Swedish team that made such a cerditable showing at the Olym pic games last year and .received a special gold medal for his work.
