Tho raco meet at Kaplolanl Park
this afternoon will commenco to all
Intents nnd purposes at 12:30, when
Captain Berger, with a wave of his
baton, will turn on a stream of melody
that will How Intermittently through
out tho afternoon. The first race Is
scheduled for 1 o'clock, and the pow-ers-that-bo
have announced their
Btern determination to start promptly
at that hour and finish tho program in
plenty of time for everyone to get
homo and change for dinner.
Jim Crow, with Maddux up, Is tho
favorite for tho polo race. Amarlno
should win from Racery, Mollle Con
nors, In tho three-quarters. Nettle H.
has the heels of everything In tho flrst
'mile. She made the fastest time on
June 11, starting ten lengths behind
the rest through a very Impromptu
send-off by starter Tripp when least
xpected Luster is lame fore and aft
nnd only won . before by the skilful
generalship of Dicky Davis, who kept
' liim In the lead and prevented him
from a challenge -which would Inevit
ably have resulted In a bad break. As
it was Luster for the flrst time In his
life went a mile without breaking all
-to pieces. Creole should pull oft tha
.'second mile.
In tho gentlemen's race, wlth-elgh
teen entries, amateurs up, there are
too many likely accidents and Inci
dents to call the winner. Colburn has
'the fastest horse apparently, but
' George Lucas, indubitable the best rid
er of the bunch Is pretty sure to be
mounted on something that will stand
a good show of winning. Madeline and
Edna G. should win other events. Fin

Contest Over tho Guardianship Brings
Out Stories of Cruel Punishment, But
Willie Shows Great Independence.
"Little Willie" was In Judge Robin
son's court yesterday. Willie is a Por
tuguese youngster named Guilhermc
Batuela, over whom a sister and sun
dry aunts and a grandmother are
waging a contest. While Attorneys
Vivas and Chllllngworth carried on the
warfare, Willie roamed about tho court
and defied everyone who tried to con
trol him. An aunt started after him
once, but Willie thought she was play
ing tag and letting out a yell that
greatly Interrupted Judge Robinson's
thoughts, he started for the bench.
The aunt's courage gave out and she
retreated to her seat, blushing a deep
red and leaving Willie to shout in
triumph from the sacred place where
tho dispenser of Justice sat.
Little "Willie, as Vivas persistently
called him In his questions, next stole
his grandmother's fan. The old Por
tuguese lady was not equal to chasing
him, and he stood in the jury box and
waved it at her. Then he laughed so
loud that the Judge couldn't hear the
witness, Willie's sister, who was tell
ing w)iy his grandmother and aunts
were not proper persons to 'care for
him. Bailiff George Sea started for
Willie, but Willie threatened to howl,
and Sea retreated in disorder. It was
Willie's field day, and he wasn't to be
cheated out of It.
According to the testimony of his sis
ter and brother tho youngster was
very cruelly treated at home. He was
uiruwn on me iioor anu KicKea, saiu i
the sister who wants to be appointed
guardian, and the. brother said that
wrappings were very irequent. while
this testimony. was being given, Willie
was a irood candidate for more Unk
ings, foV he was seated on the floor of
the courtroom, uttering defiances to
the deeply shocked aunts and grand
mother, who were trying to induce him
to return to a seat and respect the dig
nity of the court.
"How often was little Willie whip
ped?" asked Vivas of the elder broth
er. It appeared from Willie's conduct
that It was not as often as he ought
to have been, but the witness replied
that there were so many chastisements
that he couldn't make an estimate. In
answer to questions from the judge he
finally said that he had seen the whip
pings eight or ten times.
Judge Robinson finally granted the
petition of the grandmother, Mrs. Te
resa J. Agulai, for letters of guardian
ship, under bonds of $750, and' Willie
was led home, to receive necessary
punishment which the judge did not In
flict, for repeated contempts of court.
J. M. Vivas, Mrs. Clara Webster and
M. T. Slmonton were appointed to ap
praise the estate left to the youngster
by his father.

Is a Five Masted Vessel and Will Take
Lumber to Australia Was Launched
Last May.
Captain Plltz, who was In command
of the barkentine William Carson at
the time she was sunk -oft Wnikikl in
December of 1899, in a collision with
the steamer Claudlne, has been given
command recently of a new vessel. It
is the new live masted schooner H. K.
Hall and Is the property of George Bill
ings. Tho vessel was built at Port Blakeley
by Hall Brothers and was launched
May 24. .She Is 235 feet In length, 42
feet 4 Inches beam and has a depth of
18 feet 1 Inch. She Is fitted with a
Hyde -Patent windlass with direct
steam connection and also has a Can
troll donkey engine, with double cylin
der. She Is 1105 tons register and has
a carrying capacity of 2,000 tons of
coal or 1,500,000 feet of lumber.
When Captain W. C. Renny of the lo
cal stevedore company, was In the
Sound country recently, he met Cap
tain Plltz and was entertained In com
pany with a number of other persons,
aboard the new vessel. Captain Plltz
was delighted with his new boat ami
showed his guests nil over the vessel.
He seemed especially .anxious that the
people of Honolulu should learn of his
good fortune so Captain Renny made a
note of the dimensions and other Infor
mation concerning the schooner and
brought tho news hero when he arrived
on the China, this month.
The Hall was lying alongside the St.
Paul and Tacoma wharf at Taoftnm
loading lumber for. Australia. Slier ox

was to accompany her husband.
JUDGE ESTEE GIVES IMPORTANT
DECISION REGARDING
WAGES. , .
SEAMEN'S PAY
CANNOT BE
GARNISHEED,
An Illegal Execution From the Dis
trict Court and the Trouble It Has
Caused.
Judge Estee this morning held that
the wages of Island steamer men are
exempt from execution, not only be
cause of the federal law protecting all
seamen's wages, but on account of the
law passed by the Inst legislature of
Hawaii, exempting all wages up to
$50 hi the case of a single man, and $200
in the case of a head of a family. The
decision was in the case of William
Holland vs. the steamship Helene.
Judge Dickey's judgment and garnishee
against Wllder's Steamship Company
Is declared to be against the law, but
as the time has passed for appeal, the
company may .have to pay the judg
ment, as well as complying with Judge
Estee's order for payment of $00 wages
to Holland.
Holland's petition was for $60, for his
June wages, wlilch he alleged the com
pany had not paid him. He libelled
the Helene. Wilder's Steamship Com
pany Intervened and made a showing
that the reason why they had not paid
the $60 was that Judge Dickey had Is
sued a garnishee and judgment against
Holland and the company. Kinney,
'Baltou & McClanahan appeared for
Wllder's and T. I. Dillon for Holland,
while Mlddledltch represented the Jap
anese plaintiff whose Judgment before
Dickey caused all the trouble. AVhile
the case was pending two Wilder
steamers were attached. With a
libel against the Helene, the company
had three steamers under process,
while lawyers' fees and costs multi
plied, and Judge Estee, after three sep
arate hearings, came Into court this
morning with a decision ten pages In
length and full of legal authorities, on
the $60-case.
After reciting the history of the case
and quoting much law on the subject
of seamen's wages, Estee continued:
"Seamen's wages have been at all
times guarded by the laws of all civi
lized countries, until, as was well said
by Mr. Justice Ware, the protection of
seamens' wages has become 'the com
mon law of the sea. And while a few
cases are found in the books where at
tempts have been made as in this case,
to garnishee the wages of sailors by in
ferior local law courts, yet so far ns I
can find Jn no single Instance haVe the
attempts succeeded.
"It Is Indeed a part of International
law to protect sailor's wages. This has
been done as a matter of public policy.
Their duties are fraught with danger,
their home Is upon the sea. They are
mere children when upon land In all
matters of business. So much Is this
recognized, that It has become the set
tled law that an express agreement on
the part of a seaman to waive his Hen
for wages on the ship cannot be en-
forced.
"Admiralty courts will withhold their
sanction from any such agreements,
not only upon equitable considerations
growing out of the improvidence and
want 'of Intelligence ot seamen In their
bargains, but also upon considerations
of public policy.
"While It appears that In this case a
judgment was obtained against the
Wllder's Steamship Company, inter
vener herein, in the action before tho
District Magistrate of Honolulu, nnd
which judgment still remains -unpaid,
yet 'Courts of law cannot undertako
by garnishment to settle the equities
hot ween the parties In order to subject

Announcement of the posi
tion OF THE KUOKOA ON
DELEGATESHIP.
WANT THE REPUBLICANS TO
NAME THE PRINCE.
Otherwise tho Kuokoa Will Endorse
Wilcox and Recoup Itself In the
Legislative Ticket Long's Statement
The Kuokoa will either' nominate
Prince Cupid and secure his endorse
ment by the Republicans, or it will turn
about und indorse Robert W. Wilcox.
This Is likely to be the ultimate result
of the "split," uccording to Carlos A.
Long, former secretary of the Home
Rule party, and one of the leading
bolters. Long said last night that Cu
pid's candidacy was dependent upon
his receiving the endorsement of the
Republican party.
"If he doesn't get that endorsement"
said Long, "we shall endorse Wilcox
and elect him."
The Kuokoa Is said to have already
received assurances of the representa
tion its members wanted on the Home
Rule legislative ticket. The bolting
element can got a good deal of what
It wants In this respect, nccordlng to
authoritative reports. "We have al
ready won our point," said oire of the
Kuokoa.
This announcement coming from
the source and with the authority It
does. Is taken" by many politicians as
conclusively bearing" out the opinion
expressed some time ngo and published
by The Star, thnt the real purpose ot
many of tho bolters from the Home
Rule convention was merely to force
Wilcox to put some ot them on me
legislative ticket. They threatened his
candidacy for congress In order to
rorc-e him to accept their terms in the
makeup of the legislative ticket. The
fact that Wilcox's plurality two years
ago was the narrow one ot less than
300 votes made him particularly vul
nerable to any attack In his own party
which could threaten him with the loss
ot 150 or more votes.' The manifestos
and proclamations which have been Is
sued by the Kuokoa, have been so
halting and Indefinite on the question
of a square issue with Wilcox that the
way for a deal with him seems always
to have been left open. AVllcox aB well
a -ither pollttehins ivb seen this,
which Js thought by many to account
for Wlldox's attitude of apparent in
difference to the "bolt."
The only argument heard In opposi
tion to this view of the case is that If
It is the correct view. Prince Cupid
would seem to be allowing himself to
be used as a stalking horse by those
who profess to be his followers, and
this, no one who knows the Prince will
believe. On the other hand ltXs argued
that the prince did not pretend to lead
a "bolt," but merely acted as an indi
vidual exercising his own Individual
right of political action. The other
bolters followed him out, of their own
choice and not at his Instigation, and
they, not he, have been doing the or
ganizing and manifesto business since.
Among Republicans there is much
opposition to the Idea of endorsing the
Prince, though there are some who
think it is the best way to win the
coming fight. The objections come
from those who think It would be a
practical surrender of the party to en
dorse a new candidate, and make the
Republican party a tall to the Kuokoa
kite. Another dllllculty Is that the
Prince, it Is stated by his friends, can
npt become a Republican. The party
must go to the Prince, for he cannot
come into the party. The whole Idea
of the Kuokoa is non-partisanship, and
a change of front now would be the
death ot Kuokoa, say tho leaders.
' Tho. certainty of Sam Parker's refu
sal to run, has narrowed the Repub
lican cahdldates who are being discuss
ed to A. G. M. Robertson, Mark P.
Robinson and-W. O. Smith. The namo
of Robertson is the most often heard
and his friends say that If ho win give
the word they can carry the conven
tion for him. Many think the candi
date ought to bo a native, however,
and In the event of this view prevail
ing Robertson has- intimated that he
would not have his name presented to
the convention.
In the seventh precinct of the fifth
district last night there was some dis
cussion aside from that of the nomin
ations. T. McCants Stewart offered
the following:
"Resolved, Thnt we heartily favor
Immediate county nnd municipal gov
ernment, and we hereby direct the del
gates from this precinct to work and
vote together for a platform and such
legislative candidates as will, promote
the same."
E. C. "Winston, Dr. Huddy and others
thought the resolution was premature
and favored leaving the matter for
luter discussion. ' Sims nnd Clark de
clared in favor of the proposition, and
after a brief discussion the resolution
passed, no votes being cast against It.
The expected warm contest did not
materialize In this precinct, though
there was some discussion before a
method of nomination was agreed on.
Winston proposed nominations by com
mittees, but open meeting nominations
were finally decided upon. Stewart's
reappearance In politics was marked
by modest and persistent refusals to
run for nny convention delegateshlp.
T.Ike Lane nnd AVrlght, ho.wevor, ho

meetings was the naming of . P. R

Drstrlot. Isenberg wns a Democratic
cundtdnte for the legislature two year?
ago, and this party alllllatlon wns

She Came From Kallua nnd Kaanapalt.
Will Load Lumber on Puget Sound
For Hllo.
The schooner Aloha arrived this
morning from Sun Francisco by way ot
Kallua and Kaanapall. She brought
4,000 bags of sugar from the Kona Su
gur Company and 8,125 bags from Pio
neer Mill. All of this sugar Is to be
discharged into the bark Kalulanl
which wBl sail forBan Francisco.
The arrival of the Alolm with su
gar for another sailing vessel caused
some suiprlse but the reason the
schooner brought this sort of cargo. Is
because she had freight for Honolulu
and had to come hero under any cir
cumstances so the sugar for the bark
was loaded in her.
The Aloha will go on the Marine rail
way here, and will then be dispatched
for Puget Sound to load lumber for
Hllo.
ALL MAUIS ARRIVE
The All-Maul baseball team arrived
this morning at 4 o'clock on tho Clau
dlne. Although the crowd got into
port very enrly, Deputy High Sheriff
Chllllngworta was on hand with a
wagonette to receivo them a"hd escorted
the crowd of twelve men to the Califor
nia Hotel, where they will be quarter
ed during their stay In Honolulu.
The team Is composed of the follow
ing: Catcher and Captain, George H.
Cummlngs; pitcher, Alphonso Jackson;
ilrst base, T. Picker; second base, J.
Garcia; third base, J. B. Henderson;
short stop, J. Yates; right Held, W.
Searle; left Held, A. Garcia; center
field, K. Smith; substitutes, L. R.
Crook and Thomas Kruger; manager,
J. L. Coke.
Mr. Chllllngworth sent the team out
to the Punahou ground this morning
under tho escort of Barney Joy, the
pitcher of the Honolulu Athletic team,
for practice. The Maul team Is com
posed of small fellows as a rule, but
they showed themselves to be good
players. They appeared to have got
ten their team work down to quite a
science, and in base running some of
them were very good. It Is expected
that they will put up a splendid game
with the Honolulu clubs. The first
game will be played at the Punuhou
grounds at 2 p. m. Monday. The other
game will be with the All-Honolulu
team at the same place on Tuesday af
ternoon. THE FINAL TOUCHES
Every space In the Merchants' Pavi
lion has been pre-empted for the fair
this evening and this morning all was
orderly confusion with tho various ex
hibitors putting the finishing touches
to their booths. The big center spaces
are turned Into pavilions for the exhi
bition of carriages and there as in the
smaller booths original color combina
tions and decorative schemes have
been displayed.
The exhibits will not all be mute.
There will be gramophone and pianola
records by a musical firm and It Is ru
mored that a well kn'jwn local pianist
will enliven the crowd with rag time
selections.
Back In the drill shed tho tables are
all neatly spread with white cloths In
readiness for the exhibits. The Knme
hameha boys have draped two enor
mous American and Hawaiian flags at
the' end for a background to their ex
hibit, and a load of fine squashes In in
finite variety with other products of
the college truck garden are already
being spread out. The taroenn exhibit
mnkes a good showing. Otherwise the
tables are bare, as owing to the-perishable
nature of the exhibits, they will
not be placed on the tables until the
last moment.' Tho flowers and fruits
will be brought in mostly on Monday
morning.
The band concert will start the fair
this evening with a concert In a pavil
ion to be erected Ewa of the bid build
ing. They will play at 8 o'clock, the
doors of the pavilion being opened at
the same time.
FALSE RUMOR.
There was a rumor, oft repeated,
along the water front this morning,
that the steamer Maul had gone ashore
or otherwise been wrecked. President
Wight of the Wllder's Steamship Com
pany stated that there was no founda
tion for the report. '

Neighborhood ot Kownio and Wilder
Aroused Over Presence of Stranga
Men Thought to be Burglars.
It is now believed that a couple ot
professional white burglars are operat
ing In Honolulu. The teccnt thefts
which have all been characterized by
boldness of execution, are now laid at
the door of the two unknown men and.
not the gang of Porto Rlcans as was
originally surmised.
The discovery of the probable Identi
ty of the burglars was made last night.
Three shots were fired at one ot the
men by Henry Crane but the fellow -enped.
Tho residents In the ieinlty
of Kewalo street and Wilder avenue
were treated to unusual excitement
Inst night, shortly after midnight, and
about two thirds of themale popula
tion was out in various stages of sleep
iness and dishabille, chasing-after bur
glars. - Notice of the presence of tha twa
burglars was first given by a couple o
fox terriers at the Crane place on Ke
walo street. Charles Crane and his
brother w'erc aroused by hearing the
noise of the two flogs. Charles Crane
went to the front door and Just saw
the dogs disappearing around the slds
of the house evidently in pursuit of
some object. He ran to tho rear door
nnd there discovered two white mui in
the net of evidently trying to quiet the
dogs.
August Wolf who resldos in the cot
tage in the rear of the Crane residence
saw the two ,nfon distinctly. One of
them was rather tall and the other
short, the Usunl combination wif rob
bers. Both of them were white men.
The Cranes, Henry armed witli a revol
ver, ran out as did Mr. Wolf and the
Japanese yard boy. The tall robber os-
caped by the rear fence pursued by tho
Japanese who soon returned with
barked shins from colliding with nil
oil can, while the shorter man run on
Vo Kewalo street and escaped Into Mc
Chesney's yurd.
The pursuers waited for some time,
hiding in Crane's yard. Within a
short time, they were rewarded by see
ing the supposed burglar climb the Mc
Chesney fence and start down AVIlder
nrenue. The burglar had a start ot
perhaps' 150 yards over the crowd and
they say he ran like a deer. Henry
Crane took three shots at the re
treating men but none of them took
effect. By this time all ot the male re
sidents ot the neighborhood, who could
find their clothes 'r nny pnrt-ot their
wardrobes, u'ere oui in tho sirtet"hWp
ing to swell the crowd of pursuers.
The pursued mdn ran along Wilder
nvenue to Kcaumoku street, jumped
Into J. Ilumberg's yurd and dlsapeared.
in the brush fringing a ditch which
runs past the Humberg premises. The
pursuers were unable to llnd any fur
ter trace of the unknown man. It is
thought that the two men were trying
to break into the Crane residence.
Some days ngo, Mrs. James Wilkin
son who lives on Pensacola street, was
startled by the noise of some one on.
hed ffont porch. It was In the even
ing. She went to learn the cause, and.
there saw two men who answer tho
