The Proposed Outing Down the Rail
road Tendered by the Chamber of
There is Is some talk of a mass
meetlntr to be held under the auspices
of the Annexation Club before the
Commissioners leave. There is a very
general desire on the part of the
members of the club and the public
generally to hear Senator Morgan,
Senator Cullom and Congressman Hltt
speak on the topics of the day and
the future of the territory of Hawaii,
as well as to show the Commissioners
the full strength of the Annexation
Clubs membership. If the Commis
sioners conclude to remain until the
23rd, as seems likely at this writing,
there is every likelihood that a meet
ing will be arranged.
The reception tendered by the
Chamber of Commerce will probably
take the form of a trip clown the rail
road with a stop at Ewa mill tind the
plantation, but this nlso depends on
the wishes of the Commissioners and
the time of their departure.
Senator Cullom said at the hotel
this afternoon: "We discussed the
matter of our departure at this morn
ing's session land definitely concluded
to leave by the Oaelic on the 23rd.
While we were all particularly anx
ious to get away sooner, still we none
of us wanted to leave feeling that we
had left any portion of our work un
done. As we have now concluded to
remnin until the 23rd, we shall be
able to finish up our business nicely,
and at the same time accept some of

I was surprised und gratified to
sec the form exhibited," said Casper
Whitney, the well known authority
an amateur sports, in speaking of the
Saturday boat races. Of course, I
saw only the finish and not the whole
race. Hut in every way it compared
favorably with club racing in the
United States and with that of the
colleges ,of the middle west. There
was a good deal of splashing in the
earlier part of the race, as there near
ly always is in races of that jength.
Hut nt the finish tho rowing was
clean and smooth. One of the crews,
I 11111 not familiar enough with them
to say which, had a better grip and.
were stronger in this 'catch,' the be
ginning of the stroke, than the other,
and that is considered the better
form. Their boat also moved better
between strokes, which is the crucial
est. I went to enjoy the races and
not to watch them critically, and I
must say I enjoyed them, nnd wns sur
prised to find such excellence and such"
a healthy spirit in sport."
With a magnilicent burst of speed
in the last quarter, that was all the
more admirable from the immense re
serve power it displayed, the Healanl
senior boat crew shot past the final
stakes and to victory, hnlf a boat
length ahead of the Myrtles.
It was a dashing finish to a olean,.

at Pearl Harbor Saturday afternoon
in the great boating event of the
The three crews got olt well to-
gether.'and rowed an even stroke, lie-
fore, the half mile stake was reached,
the Leilanis were practically out of
the race, though they gamely rowed
over the course. The Myrtles and the
Healanis rowed an even course with a
32 stroke, the Healanis if anything the
steadier and cleaner. At the three
quarters stake the Myrtles were
slightly in the lead. Then lvlebalin,
the Healanl stroke, started the spurt
than won the victory. It seemed so
easy, so smooth, so indicative ot
conscious 'reserve power, that it chal
lenged the nilniiration of every lover
of sport, no matters where his vm
paties were in the race. The Myrtles
tried to spurt, but were unable to
overcome the odds ngninst thjem, al
though they held the winning dis
tance down to half a boat's length.
The time was 10:05:2-5 and
The junior race was started prompt
ly after the senior, race. Only the
Myrtles and Healanis entered. The
race wns a decided surprise, the Hea
lanis winning by nt least five lengths,
the race being practically over at the
three-quarters stake. The time was
10:14:2-5 and 10:28:2-5, lowering' the
record of last year.
Tile arrangements and management
of tile races were excellent. Larsen'3

officials. The starting judges were H.

Tlie railroad arrangements were ex
cellent, the Oahu railroad providing
ample accommodations and bringing
the crowds promptly to the grounds,
and as promptly back.
Hy this victory the cup is put in
competition for at least two years
longer, and interest in the sport is
renewed. All Saturday evening the
Henlanis and their partisans were rid
ing around town in hacks ornamented
with brooms and ribbons and other
insicrnia of victory.
The Myrtles and their partisans
took defeat like true lovers of sport,
freely conceding the qualities in their
opponents that won the victory.

per cent of their numcbrs are Roman
Catholics, they hae no religious pre
judices or antagonisms, that they
have the smallest percentage of crim

of small farms, and have always been
opposed to contract labor and that
they consider they are entitled to tlie
same rights and privileges accruing
to Portuguese residing elsewhere in

reasons the Portuguese citizens of
Honolulu, in mass meeting, and repre
senting tlie colony in Hawaii in its en

! irst That it is tlie colony s earn-

annexed as a state of tlie Union, and
if that be impracticable, then at least

Referring to ills, present visit to
Hawaii and the labors of tlie Commis
sion, the Senntor said in substance:
"As you nre well aware, 1 have al
ways been in favor 'of n state govern
ment for Hawaii and nm so still. In.
speaking for myself, however, and
not for the Commission, I am inclined
to think that you will have only ' a
territorial government at present.
You have not asked, for state govern
ment, and I doubt very much if tlie
Commission will recommend one; An
the territory of Hawaii you will hayc
your own legislature of which you
will elect tlie members. The territorial
officers to be appointed by President
llcKinley will be a governor and sec
retary, the three district judges, who
will compose your supreme court, a
United States district attorney whose
duties are similar to those of your at
torney general but who only acts In
cases in which the United States is
interested, and a United States mar
shal, who performs tho same duties
as your present marshal, but only in
United States business. The United
States will of course take charge of
the custom house and postal depart
ment, but in all other matters yon will
be your own masters. 1011 will make
your own laws, subject to the appro
val of Congress. The territory of. Ha-'
wail has a great future before it and
with the incrense of population nnu
business thnt must come from annex
ation nnd all that is implied by it the
road to statehood cannot be a long;
one. The opening of tlie Nicaragua
canal, an enterprise whicli must be
carried to consumnvatlon in a very
short period, will still further tidvnnce
the prosperity of the Islands.
Turning to D. L. Nnono, the Senator
said: "As a representative of tlie Ha
waiian race on tills committee, I hnvc
this to say to you. The future of the
Hawaiian race rsts in the hands of
tlie Hawniians themselves. If you
take advantage of the opportunities
offered to you by annexation, by the
free institutions of the United States,
and which from your education and
surroundings you should have no dif
ficulty in doing, if you do all this, I
suy your race will continue as one of
the great brotherhood, the greatest
among the nations of tlie earth, but
if you do not you will slowly but sure
ly drift along until some day you will
be forgotten. Your future lies In
your own hands, nnd I wisli to impress
that fact on .your mind in order tnat
you mny malic t)ie most of it."
Mr. Athertou, on behalf ot the
committee, thanked the Senator for
his interest in the matter and asked
him to convey the thanks of the club
to Congressman Newlnnds.
