A building at I o'clock in the afternoon Jackson accompanied him part o tho way. but owing lo tlie straining of a tendon in his leg the Marathon Kbl will be unable to enter the race ( n Wednesday. "It i.-s ii'l off wilh mo an far as the raoa is concerned," said Jackson yes terday nllcrnoin. "I will train King from now on. but that is nil 1 shall do in l egird to I be race. My leg is in Midi shaiie. that there will be noth ing doing for me in the race. I am Rung to Maud on the side-liner, anl root for King. Thai's all. From now on King will do nothing but' easy work short runs every other day. jus1 to lteop himself in g o.l con dition to meet the best runners who can be turned out on Wednesday. "Say, I think t could beat Kami a Marathon at a Chinese dinner," said King yesierdny when he ran into the (porting editor of the Bulletin. "You know I did a husky job on that chow that was put up by the Chinese Athletic Union last Sunday 'for you saw nm at if. That was sure some i'"ed. and I think if I can't set Kaoo on the running stunt I'll challenge him for an eating Mara Hum with n regular Chinese dinner. Thai. was all right."

If ho wins out it will he the most, remarkable feat that an athlete of his years has ever accomplished anl he will richly deserve all the credit that is coming to him. Tsuknmote, too, is out after the first, place in that race and he is working out in the country where' lure is no chance of. finding oil what! he is doing. If the Japanese can run tho way he; lid In Japan in f-'epl ember he lias the Hawaiian championship (inched so-1 furely. and both King and Kaoo will, have to lake a hick seat. That run of thirty miles in Japan diows that Tsukanioto is a stayer and he should' be among the first to cros he line in the Marathon here even 'f he does not. break the tape first. The chances 'ink bright for him in he race, in fact brighter than for my of the other runners.

The soldiirs ml up a husky game, but right at the finish the visiting put fiver four baskets which won the game, while the men from the fort could neither prevent them or score for themselves.

They will be recognized. Jt. appears much easier to write one paragraph instead of a long article. That Is why there Is so much xhort "stuff" (they call it) on this page. They toll me here in the olliee that oniitiines a journalist writes about things be never saw. I can't write what I did see. I saw a basketball game last night, but all I got was tho scores, ami tnose were given me alter the game was over. Mr. Marrallino gave me the news that the tickets for the race in which Mr. Kaoo, Mr. King and others are to compete next week are now on sale. At the sporting goods department of K. O. Hall & Son's, he said. Mr. Tsukanioto, the Japanese runner, Is now in the city. He came in from the plantation I don't know which one last evening, and he will sign up for tlie Marathon race today.

There is another thing I've just learned. The sport writer has tlie privilege of telling what he thinks of sporting events in these columns, ho can use "i" when writing and com menting on sport events. That is !t good tiling, I believe, anil I am going to follow in what I do for this page today. I don't sec how anyone does any work here. There arc three machines linotypes they call them going twenty feet from where I am, and downstairs the press is running, mak ing an awful noise. Five men are talking just behind me, and then there is another on the phone. It must be wearing to work with so many dis tractions all the time.

Campbell Comes In for Condemnation By Prop erty Owners. ( Spi oi.'it H u 1 le 1 1 n 'cm si"i!iilenoe. ) llll.o, Fell. 15. It is going to he war, oieriy war, en the proposition of the construction of sid' walks on front street between Mooheau Park and Wa iakea. The holders of lots, who have been ordered to build sidewalks before Man b in, declare that they intend to utterly disregard the notice, and (hat they will let the Territory make tin; lir.st nio e. The storm seems to a great e:;teiit to be due to what the objectors term the law -disregarding attitude of the Territory. It Is pointed out that Su perintendent of Public Works Marston Canipb! II has given notice thai within sixty days of January 10 the sidewallrs must lie constructed on the mauka sid of Front street, and at the same tlnm he is giving notice of Hie sale of sev eral lots, within the area covered by the sidewalk notice, in which it is stated that a londitiuti of the sale will be that Hie purchasers must build sidewalks o.it.-lde their property. "As the sidewalks, according to the notice, must be constructed betore March 10, and as the sale of the lots mentioned does not take place before April ', the critics of the administration are draw ing the conclusion that the Territory does not intend til construct sidewalks outside its own lots, but that it will make nil the other property-owners do so before March 10 or "institute pro ceedings as provided by law," us the notice says. This condition lias been pointed out to Campbell by Attorney Wise, who made the application for the sale of the lots mentioned. Wise, by the way, is much in favor of the construction of a sidewalk to Waiakea, but he states that la- does not think it proper that the Territory should force people to ofiey orders, with which it itself will not comply, r.nd in a recent letter to the Superintendent of Public Works he pointed out that this attitude does seem rather paradoxical. ACROSS THE FOOTLIGHTS The Doric Trio: We show people are all hoping that the theaters will i-l oyo for at least one niiiht during the Klks Carnival so that we can take it in from beginning to end. We like to see a show ourselves once in u wlille and we know that when the Klks take hold of anything it is just one tremuidnns success. Then, too, the Klks started as a theatrical organ ization and wo feel as though we are brothers. ' LTD. i lim'lMt.'- "mmnwnn i oit i - JRSEUUJ-1'1
