LONDON, July 23. In tho final of tho 400-meter flat race at the Olympic
today J. C. Carpenter, Cornell university, came in first.

W. C. Bobbins, Cambridge university was second, Halswelle third and .1.
II. Taylor, Irish-American A. (J. fourth. Matthew P. Halpin, manager ot tho

As soon as the decision ot the officials was made known the grand stands
were in an uproar, tho Englishmen cheering tlie announcement and the
Americans hooting. The "boring" Is alleged to have occurred at tho corner
coming Into the stretch. To the spectators It seemed impossible. Thoy
could not see how Carpenter, who had the post, could avoid coming out a
little, as the men already had started to sprint.

TOM CUMMINS PRAISED BY OB
SERVING CITIZENS FOR HIS EX
CELLENT STQREET MAKING.
Thos. P. Cummins, the road super
visor, is tho subject of much com
mendation from citizens for the man
ner in which ho has been perform
ing his duties since taking office a
few months ago. Two old residents
met at different places by a Star re
porter this morning, volunteered ex
prcsslons of appreciation of the work
Cummins Is doing.
"Tommy Cummins has made that
road from tho city front clear up to
Berctanla street, doing as good a
job as was over done in Honolulu
if not a better one," John McLaln
"And ho has done It for one-eighth
of tho cost of tho road work we have
been seeing for many years. I nm
talking nbout Punchbowl street. Sonu
of us have been agitating to have
that street put In decent shapo fo-
yenrs. Tommy suramins took it. w
and put It 'through promptly, with
out making any fuss about it either
"His work ought to bo satlsfactor
to the taxpayers. For one I don'
object to spending money m roads
but I do object to throwing money
"Look at Fort street from wherr
wt are standing, with its holes and
ruts. That comes from tho stylo of
road-making done in the past, dig
glng up tho old and hard foundation!
and building a now road every time
repairs aro needed."
Mr. McLaln made further technl
cal remarks on Btreet-mnklng In Ilo
nolulu for tho past score of years, re
ferrlng to somo good as well as poor
work done by previous supervisors.
"I am surprised not to soo an?
mention of Tommy's good work In
the papers," the speaker concluded.
William Brash, mot casually a fev
minutes after the foregoing Inter
view took place, on his own lnitlatlv
spoke In high tonus of pralso of tin
work being done by Mr. Cummins
Ho also remarked on the absence of
fuss with which tho supervisor per
formed his duties.
