It is understand thav. a request will be made the Promotion Commltteo at its meeting tomorrow afternoon to as' slst the club financially, for, at least a few mouths. The club is rightly considered to be one of best promotion assets that tho city has and it is probable that tho Promotion Committee will see its way clear to extent the help desired. The objects of the formers of tho club were to provide a 1'lace where the ancient Hawaiian sports ot surf riding and native canoeing might bo indulged in amid surroundings as nearly resembling those of ancient Hawaii as it is now possible to secure Thanks to the generosity of several members of the club who donated glass houses and canoo3, also the wherewithal to erect the necessary buildings, the club has taken tangi ble form. The expense has, however been con siderable, and money is urgently re quired to carry on the undertaking. As tho Outrigger Club and its fac ilities for seabathing and native water sports, is available for tho entertain ment of tourists visiting the islands, it appears to be a natural carollary to the work of the Promotion Commit tee, and worthy of my consideration and pecuniary assistance which the committee may feel disposed to grant. REEVES GETS Bl TURTLE Charlie Reeves, while fishing by torchlight off the Kalihl flats on Mon day night, appeared a sixty-five pound turtle which, after a hard struggle he succeeded in bringing to shore. Reeves came upon the turtle in shal low water and after spearing it in the flipper grapped It by a leg and hauled it over a hundred yards or so until dry ground was reached. The same night Reeves speared two flve-pound kumu. His catch was so heavy that he had the greatest dlfll culty in packing it home.
