GEDRG E IS IDE PARDONED Governor Frear yesterday placed in the hands of High Sheriff Henry a full pardon for George Wade, cook of the steamship Australia who shot and killed a waiter aboard his vessel named Gillespie. The shooting oc curred as the Australia was pulling out of this port nearly ten years ago. Wade had gone aboard in an intoxicat ed condition and went gunning for another man with whom he had had trouble. Tho shooting of Gillespie, It was always claimed, was by mistake, Wade and he having always been good friends. During his long Imprisonment Wade has acted in a way to enlist for him the sympathy of tho High Sheriff and others, and it was largely through their Influence that tho pardon was ob tallied. The pardon has a string to It, however, In the shape of a condition that the man leave the islands. He expects to sail by the Alameda next Wednesday for San Francisco. The Wade case was a memorable one as it came up In the "transition period" being the time between the flag-raK-ing August 12, 1898, and the applica tion of the Organic Act June 14, 1900; and was one of the cases used in tho test hearings in the courts that aroso in consequence.

The organization of the Outrigger Club was a most valuable step along the line of promotion. Surfing and surf-board riding are getting to be well known on the mainland as Hawaii s national sports ; and when all is said and done these are about all the sports Hawaii can call exclusively her own. It is true that baseball, yachting, tennis, golf and kindred recreations flourish here, but they may be enjoyed any where on the mainland, or in the world for that matter. Sport in a canoe or on a surf-board, however, makes its home' here, and many tourists come on purpose to enjoy these indigenous delights. Before the Outrigger Club was formed, a canoe had to be hired, and the same with a surf-board. When the latter was used, the swim mer was left to his own devices, and had to learn the knack of riding the waves as best he might. Also, he was at the mercy of the canoe men who charged him whatever seemed to them fit, and who kept him out as long and showed him just as much sport as pleased them selves. With the Outrigger Club formed, all this is different. There is a pleasant headquarters, where lovers of surfing may go and always be sure of finding some congenial companions and some one who will show them the way the thing is done. The regular club member has a place where his canoe or surf-board may be left in safety, and when he needs them they are ready for use. The tourist is enabled to enjoy the benefits of the club either by becoming a member or by invitation, and the good times enjoyed in the Waikiki surf will linger long in his memory and will be recounted to his friends on his return to the mainland or wherever his destination may be. All this is helping Hawaii, for surfing is a useful promotion asset, and cannot be made too much of. People come here to sec Hawaii, as far as they can, as it used to be. They want to sec the Hawaiians in as near their primitive state as possible, and they want to participate in genuine Hawaiian sports as much as they can. There are games and sports in plenty where they come from; what they want is something new, exciting and thrilling, and all this they get when riding the waves in a canoe or when striving to maintain their balance on a surf-board. The possibilities of fishing in these waters deserve to be more ex ploited. The States are full of anglers, but until quite recently fishing in local waters has been but little practised. If it were known that there is good fishing to be obtained here, hundreds of tourists would bring thcir(rods and tackle with them, and numbers of fishermen would, m the coiwc of a year, make the trip to Hawaii who would not have come had they not been informed of the fine sport to be bad here in following their favorite pastime. nufacturers aro slow to follow in tho footsteps of their European contem poraries. 4 A Those ln charge of tho Now Year run of tho Quaker City Motor Club ing a dim trail through dense timber, ciossing many small brooks, and by dusk were up In a narrow canyon.
