When, on the morning of June 8th,
1S9C, the Judiciary Committee of the
House of Representatives reported on
House Bill No. 59, relating to national
holidays, Representative Robertson as
chairman and introducer of the bill,
said, among other things:
A. G. M. ROBERTSON.
President Myrtle Boat Club and
Founder .of the Day.
"There is considerable local feeling
in favor of a holiday at a time of the
year suitable for aquatic sports, and be
lieving that it is legitimate and proper
for a Government to encourage healthful
exercise and manly sport among its
people, we cordially support the idea.
There are certainly no sports better
adapted to our climate or more worthy
of encouragement than yachting and
rowing. A day in September would not
only be suitable for a regatta day, but
would more equally divide the period
betweeen Fourth of July and Christ
"We therefore recommend that in
Section 1 of House Bill No. 59, the
words -'the 28th day of November' be
struck out and the words 'the third
Saturday of September' be inserted in
"With this amendment we recommend
the bill pass."
On June 12th the bill passed third
reading in both the Senate and House,
and became a law that must needs
from the very nature of things become
more and more popular as the years
roll by, a law that will always have
connected with it the name of A. G. M.
Honolulu is a city, a large proportion
of the inhabitants of which are people
in one way or another interested in
healthful sports, and it is not to be
wondered at that the setting apart of
a day to be devoted entirely to aquatic
events, a day each year to be looked
forward to as Regatta Day, has given
such general satisfaction.
The boat clubs of the city and other
interested parties caught the right
spirit and determined to make Saturday,
September 19th, a most successful
beginning of Regatta Day. The Hawaiian
Rowing Association, in whose
hands all arrangements were placed,
appointed their committee and began
planning the events of the day at an
early date. They went about to different
merchants of the city, who responded
most liberally to the call for money
with which to buy prizes as an incentive
toward the entrance of different
parties into the events. Two days before
the races arrangements for the
same were entirely completed, and the
result was awaited with interest.
Saturday dawned with hardly a cloud
in the sky, and a light breezs stirring
from the northeast. It was plain to see
that no umbrellas would be needed,
and that the day would be a fine one
foe the races.
The wharves, boat houses and vessels
in port and every other spot of
vantage were crowded with people, but
special mention will be made of these
OFFICERS OF THE DAY.
Following are the judges, the H. R. A
Regatta Committee and others -who
should be given the greatest credit for
the able manner in which they conducted
the races, and especially for the dis
patch with which they handled everything:
Judges Captain J. A. King, Lieutenant
Stanworth of the U. S. S. Adams,
and F. S. Dodge.
Regatta Committee of Hawaiian
Rowing Association, in charge of the
regatta David Kawananakoa, Leilani;
W. A. Wall, Healani, and W. C. Parke,
Time Keepers Frank Kruger and S.
Starter C. B. Wilson.
Clerk of the Course Badly Needed.
FIRST CLASS YACHTS.
Shortlvvrbefore 9 o'clock the signal
gun, a Jiomb fired from the judges'
stand anchored just off the Pacific Mail
wharf and on a line with the Kaimiloa
anchored in Naval Row, announced the
first class yacht race, the first on the
program, for two prizes of $50 and $25.
Course From starting point on line
with judges' stand, out the channel between
buoys and leaving spar and bell
buoys on port side; then to stake boat
off Waikiki, keeping it on the port side
when rounding; thence to flag boat off
Quarantine island, keeping 'it on starboard
side when rounding; thence to
spar buoy, keeping it on port side,
passing in channel to starting point.
Entries Helene, by Wm. G. Irwin;
Rescue, by C. Johnson; Hawaii and
Bonnie Dundee, by W. Luther Wilcox.

CAPT. J. A. KING.
6 mins., 46 sees.; Hawaii, 9 hrs., 10
mins., 12 sees.; Rescue, 9 hrs., 11 mins.,
The Helene, sailed by Captain
went scudding away toward
Waikiki as if she meant business, and
the Bonnie Dundee went along as if
there was nothing in the world to
bother the even tenor of her way. The
Hawaii and Rescue followed at about
equal distances out the channel. The
Helene seemed to be gaining all the
while on the stretch out toward Diamond
Head, but it was not for long.
The Bonnie began to fly and gained a
good deal on the turn, going past the
channel in the direction of Barber's
Point quite a distance ahead. It was
just about this time that a man was
seen to climb the mast of the Helene,
and out flew the spinnaker of the yacht.
In a little while she had come abreast

of the Bonnie, and a little later had
passed her; but every one seemed to believe
that the Bonnie would gain at
the turn and beat her lively opponent
in. They were not mistaken in their
prediction. While the Helene was beating
about outside the channel the Bonnie
was sailing up, and in two tacks had
shot past the finish line.
Time 3 hrs., 41 mins., 82 sees. Helene,
4 hrs., 1 min., 24 sees. The other
yachts were so far behind that no account
was taken of their time.
There was but one entry for the tub

; SWIMMING CONTEST.
"Long-legged" Anderson of the U. S.
S.j Adams, Kapule and Kimokeo were
the three contestants in the swimming
race. In the start from the tug-boat
wharf the natives showed Anderson
how they learned to swim when they
were children, and set out with the
overhand, leaping stroke that sent the
tears rolling down the man-o'-war's
man's cheeks. They shot ahead and left
him a long distance in the rear. Kimokeo,
a young native, proved too much

Crews Myrtles: Sorenson (stroke),
Angus, Lishman, Giles, and Arthur
Giles, coxswain. Healanis: Williams
(stroke), Lloyd, Atkinson, Damon, and;
Prize Purse $25.
The Myrtles started out ahead of the
Healanis, and kept it, making the turn
around the bow of the Kaimiloa with
the Healanis following pretty closely.
The Myrtles got on the Healanis side
of the red flag placed in a position between
the lighthouse and the Kaimiloa
to avoid a collision between the two
boats at the turn, and the Healanis
were fouled. The Myrtles rowed over
the course and the Healanis went immediately
to their quarters.
The Myrtles claimed that they had
been given no instructions by the starter,
and understood that they were to
get around the Kaimiloa in the best
way they possibly could, but the judges
decided that they were in the Healani's
water and awarded the race to the
This was one of the most exciting
races of the day, and interest was at

but the Myrtles crawled up to them at

going along with clock-like precision.

Myrtles kept gaining until the finish,

This proved one of the very best'and
most evenly matched contests of the
day. Both crews were picked men with
great endurance. The pilot boys finished
a very few seconds before the boys
of the Adams. The latter made a very
peculiar mistake. They started on the
mauka side of the judges' stand and
came in on the makai side at the finish.
Without doubt they would have been
closer to the pilot boys had they finished
on the mauka side.
