Tuesday, August ID, 1SSJL. OUTDOOR GAMES. A few days ago we commented on the noticeable disinclination to physi cal exercise which characterizes the ladies of Honolulu. "With the num ber of field games now in vogue in which both sexes can indulge, there can be no excuse for this lassitude. JLawn tennis seems to be poorly pat ronized, yet there is hardly a city in the world where the opportunities are so ample for this game. About almost every house is that large, smooth lawn which the tennis player loves. There are many rea sons why lawn tennis should win a greater degree of popularity than its H. I., TUESDAY, AUGUST 19, 1884 j)reJece.Stsor, croquet. Permitting equally that mingling of the sexes which must add to the charms of any outdoor sport, as an exercise it is at once more picturesque and more in vigorating, while as a jxame, it in volves a much jfreater degree of skill, and consequently of interest. As its name implies, it is an adaptation of the ancient game of tennis the royal as it has been called the jeu dc 2aumc familiar to all readers of the early French chronicles. With, the French Kings, indeed, it was always a prime favorite, and in the time of Louis XIV, that grand monarch had his choice of no less than 115 tennis courts wherein to trv "a set'' with graceless Richelieu or gay Lauzan. The last of these courts was pulled down to make way for the Parisian Grand Opera House. Then those who find tennis too violent an exercise, can try the grand historic game of archery. An archery club is now in process of organiza tion. There is lots of good archery material to be procured in town, and the target and target face will be the only things necessary, and they can be made to order. The old English game of bowls, which corresponds to the Italian boccJia, is a quiet, inter esting exercise, requiring more skill than quoitsi and to our' mind, more interesting. The bowling . green is the place to get up ah axpetite, shake off the blues, and the exercise i3 a most fascinating one. If a few leaders would only take hold of these matters, we believe that island life would be much benefitted by ' re vival in outdoor rrames. SAYINGS OF GKEAT HAWAIIANS. For a small island as this is, the number of great brains it contains to the acre may well indeed overwhelm the philosopher with wonder and ad miration. Every day on the street corners, in the .Legislature, at the church doors, at the portals of the saloons, in the middle of the street, on the wharves, and in the stores, there fall from the lips of those great men sayings which indeed may well be treasured up as grains of gold. That those precious morsels of wisdom might not be allowed to perish, we have had several commissioners abroad for some days to catch those utterances and put them up in a com pact and incorruptible form, warrant ed to keep for many years to come. As these reports come in we propose to publish them, until the brilliant mosaic is perfect. Rev. Sereno Bishop: Craumer perished at the stake for his convic tions, and the waste-basket received my political head for my anti-lottery principles. P. C Jones: Go in and polish him ofT, Henry. David Nesfield, Esq.: About the best article I ever wrote, etc., etc. Frank Pratt: Mullet will not rise to the red fly in an ebb tide. Indeed, I have no faith, etc., etc. Daniel Lyons: When we killed the Bank Charter Bill, says Wong Tong, etc., etc. ?'Cecil Brown: I'll go to the coun try. Enough of politics. S. B. Dole: Torch-light processions are to be mentioned no longer to His Majesty's Loyal Opposition. Ralph Smith: The man who would breathe a word against the de scendants of the noble, self-sacrificing and law-abiding missionaries is, etc., etc. f William; Cornvvell: Talking of pedigrees I'll just bet you, etc. etc. Judge Widejiann: Most of the great orators of the world find the hands in the breeches pocket a vast assistance to eloquence. Hox. W. O. Smith: The defeat of the liquor bill is no reason why a gen- tleman should not take his five-fingered cocktail when dry. Hon. Godfrey Brown: My other great speech on the Attorney-General will be ready in 188S, when that gen tleman is absent iii Abyssinia. The Attorney-GenePvAl : My claim to public improvements is the donation of a POND to the Oahu Jail. These close the reports of one day's work of the Commissioners. Their next budget, when duly tested, will be embalmed in these columns. BIRTHDAY OF THE EMPEROR OF CHINA Friday last, being the anniversary of the birthday of His Majesty Quong Su, Emperor of China, Mr. Alee and Mr. Goo Kim, the Commercial Agents for China, held an official reception between the hours of noon aud 1 p. m. As this is the tenth year of the young Emperor's reign he must now be approaching manhood. It may be interesting to the readers of the Pacific Commercial Adver tiser to learn how the representa tives of China here have been se lected. China may not be able to cope with some of the great powers of the world in arms, but she still retains her superiority over them in many other ways, and notably in the ar rangements for his selection and con trol of her civil service. In no coun try is true merit more arduously rec ognized in none are the details of monarchial government conducted on . a more thoroughly democratic plan. When the Commissioners' sent by the Chinese Ambassador at Wash ington visited this country they per suaded their countrymen here to form a society for mutual protection and benefit. This was done, and the "United Chinese Society" was formed, one of the best guarantees for the good order and loyalty of our Chinese population which could have been devised. His Excellency Chung Tsau Ju promised to appoint the President and Vice-President of this society to be Commercial Agents for China. These officers are elected an nually by a vote of the members of the society. The membership of the society is open to all well-behaved Chinese subjects, and ho Chinaman who values himself abstains from joining it. Last year and this year Mr. C. Alee (Cheu King Tswn) of the firm of Chulan & Co., and Mr. Goo Kim (Goo Kara Fai) have been elected to fill the offices of President and Vice-President of this society, and in fulfilment of his promise, Mr. Chung Tsao Ju applied to the Gov ernment of this country to have them recognized as Commercial Agents for China. Some delay occurred In their recognition, because the names given above in brackets were not known here, and the gentlemen themselves failed to make any application for their recognition. This is, therefore, the first time they have had the op portunity of oflicially recognizing their national holiday. We wish them and their Empire a hearty aloha on the occasion. THE "GAZETTE AND THE MARY ALICE. If there is one redeeming quality about the Gazette, it is consistency. It never loses an opportunity to mis construe facts, distort the truth and falsify matters generally, more par ticularly when there is an opening to have a fling at Mr. Gibson. InWed terday's issue it presents to its readers a short narrative relative to the wreck of the schooner Mary Alice on Lanai, with a heading "The True Story." It is a false and malicious statement from beginning to end. Had the Gazette sought to publish a true story, it could have been fur Whole No. 1486. nished with the facts by thoso who chartered the S. S. Waimanalo, or by the Captain, or by those who took au active part in the mission. There was even another alternative aud a much simpler one; it could have re-produced the brief, but true, account of the afTair that appeared in these columns on Monday last. Such would have been the course pursued by the truthful journalist, and had the Gazette done so on this occasion it would have been consistent More comment on this unpleasant matter is unnecessary on our part, but as a fiat refutation of our contemporary's "True Story" wc commend to our readers the perusal of the following letter: Jin. Editor: This morning's issue of tho Gazette contains a short article headed "Tho True .story." Allow mo to nay that it is not a true story, and I do not thank the editor of tho Gazette for assuming to know my business better than I do myself. The account given in yonr issuo of the 11th inst. of the chartering and journey of the Waimaualo for the relief of the injured Captain of tlm Mary Alice U correct, and had it not been for the prompt action of tho President of the Hoard of Health, who ar ranjrod to charter tho vessel, after I had tried to do so and failed, 6ho would never havo beau despatched, and Captain Smith, in all probability, would havo lost his life, from the delay which must have ensued in getting r schooner to reach Awaloa. Tho Mary Alice was wrecked on tho 1st inst., and not on the Gth, as stated by the Gazette. The Captain of the Nettie Merrill did not bring the news. It came by a mail letter from Mr. Gibson's nephew to Mr. F. II. Hayselden. The Captain of tho Nettie Merrill knew nothing about the matter, and first heard of it from me, and was much concerned that he had not known of it pre vious to sailing for llonculu. Had he known ho would have immediately gOno across to Awaloa to render what assistance he could, or to have brought tho man to Honolulu. I was first informed of tho disaster by Mr. Hayselden. I did all I -could to help the despatch of the steamer after Mr. Gibson had secured her, but to him belongs all tho credit. I did not .obtain the "detail of a Government physician." It i3 true I thought of the matter, but there was'na need for Mr. Gibson had already made the arrangement, and I never in my life saw the gentlemen who was sent until he returned with tho injured man in his charge. I fail to see a sensational tale from which political capital has been made, in tho re lation of a plain and unvarnished story in your columns. If any such capital has been made it certainly is by the kind assis tance of tho Gazette whose untruthful ac count now renders it necessary for mo to corroborate your report, and to add my tes timony to Mr. Gibson's prompt and suc cessful exertions in the interests of humani ty. I am, sir, Yours, etc., F. AYUNDENBEIiO. Honolulu, August 13, 1884. "The Gazette,11 remarks tho Ha waiian, "very thoughtfully and truthfuly says the whole world is in terested in Gordon." By no means. Chinese Gordon is a (filibuster of tho first water, and if he meets a fililbus ter's fate we cannot see why any fraction of the world should be sorry. He went among a people to kick up a bobbery, totally unauthor ized by the British Government, and if Mr. Gordon is scragged it will be nothing more than the fate he has courted. There is a lot of mock sen timentality about Gordon, princi pally from those who have made no study of the situation. The session is nearly over, and the censured and disgraced Ministers still hold their, seats. Dismal Blad" der. They do, and for a wonder the sun still shines, the bananas grow, and the world "spins around as usual. Everybody is happy, but our dismal neighbor. An hourly funeral passing by the office, and a tri-daily cocktail of tears, are necessary to convince our woe-be-straddled neighbor that there can be no joy in Hawaii, because the Ministers still keep their seat?. ! . f k k
