A PAIR OP SOT WHEELMEN.
Griffiths and Terrill Now Visiting
Honolulu.

How They Look ami Wht They
y To Hare Here
T. A. Griffith and II. F. Terrill,
the famous California wheelmen who
reached this place last week by the
bark Albert, are delighted with Hono
lulu. They are enjoying the vacation
thoroughly and wish it would con
tinue six monthU instead of termina
ting in four week-. The-e young men
are interesting. They are exrnents
of a pastime that has developed in a
most astounding fashion. Less than
ten years ago a bicycle was a curi
osity. Now the safety is u part of
every day life. Few persons of genu
ine spirit can resist the wheel. Next
to sitting behind a team of L':2) trotter.-,
riding a perfect bicycle at a scorching
speed is a favorite sensation with peo
ple who have a tinge of sporting in
their blood. In Kurope and the
United States and even in Hawaii the
bicycle is of practical use. The inter
est taken in America by the ladies ha3
assured the jxipularity and perma
nence of wheeling.
The silent steed notables now here
make an interesting pair. The age of
each is twenty-one. They are line
looking young men. With them the
wheel has proven a guard against all
physical ill. They are pictures of
health. Terrill is 5 feet 9J inches tall
and weighs 161 pounds. He is the
blonde of the team. Grilllth, the bru
nette, is a trifle lighter and an inch
taller. He weighs 153 iounJs. Tbey
are fellow members of the Hay City
Wheelmen's Club of San Francisco.
Both were born in that city. Terrill
is a member of the club directorate
and Grimth is on the road board. The
Bay Citys have 140 members. It is
one of the most popular organizations
on the Coast and one of the best known
of bicycle clubs. Mr. Terrill is In the

bicycle company or the employee of a
house handling machines. Terrill is
an oarsman also and is acquainted In
rowing circles along the Coast. He is
regarded as a very valuable man In

Mr. Griffiths, who is the son ol ' the
captain of the Albert, is a B" Class
man. This is because ho is in the bi
cycle business, being connected with
one of the leading Kan irancisco
houses. Ho can ride when and where
he likes, in the amateur class. A new
wrinkle in the business is the hang
ing up of unmounted diamonds as
trophies for amateurs. This is the
nearest possible approach to money.

Being in Class "A", Terrill is not
permitted under rules to race 00 miles
from home. For the purposes of this
trip he has secured a special permit
and may enter for one or more events
on Thauksglving Day at the adver
tised meet. Harry Woolen is trying
to get up a road race in the meantime
as an appetizer. The Coast boys tell
him that a splendid course can be laid
out on Beretanla and School streets.
They suggest twenty-live miles. Mr.
Wooteu thinks five or ten miles will
be about suitable to the local talent.
Griffiths was a world's champion
for about two weeks last year. He
covered ten miles on the road In -G
minutes and 44 seconds. This was in
the extensively mentioned relay race
from San Francisco to Oakland around

a task of 100 miles and was di vided
among ten picked men. Terrill was
alo oue of the number aud did credit
able work. Griffith's name was her
alded broadcast as a "phenom." He
at once stepped into the ranks as a
prominent rider and is most likely to
stay there. He has been riding only
four years and tried the track for the
lirst lime only eighteen months ago.
So far he has held his own at every
distance. Though splendidly built
he Is of slight form, but strong aud of
line lung power.
Mr. Terrill is riding in his third
vear ami has been racing half that
time. Any distauce suits him, but he
has done his best at half a-mile.. The
tendency of the programs in the States
is for spurts. They plea-e the audi
ences. People get tired of long eon
tests. Terrill impresses one as being
a powerful fellow. He looks like a
vounggiaut. . A .
These voung men have to date raced
only on the Coast. They are training
on and may be able to best Zeigler
and Wells of California, and then go

None of the cracks ride themselves

"Do either of you smoke?
"No, sir;" said Griffiths. "None of
the successful riders either smoke or
drink. The great Zimmerman takes
a cigar between his teeth, but never
lights It. Smoking would cut the
wind."
The visitors are quite taken with the
appearance and riding of Giles, the
Hawaiian champion. They are quite

IT WAS VERY SUDDEN.
Hut the Man at the Telephone Got the Au
itvrer He Wanted.
An event lias occurred in Michigan,
nrar Dc troit, which appears to coniinn
th; idea that courtship as well as most
other things will hereafter bo greatly
facilitated by recent inventions. It seems
that there is a young lady residing in
Detroit who for some time has been the
recipient of the attentions of two young
men ono a young professor at the
Michigan stato university at Ann Ar
bor and tho other a traveling salesman
for a New York wholesalo hardware
house, whoso route extends through
Michigan and parts of Canada.
Ono day recently tho New Yorker ar
rived in Detroit late in tho afternoon,
and of conrsi immediately started to
Make tho rounds uf the retail hardware
deahrs, with th lamlablo purpose o
felling each a good stxk for the winter
liefore the representative of any rival
concern should put in an appearand-.'.
He had hoped to visit tho olject of his
affections in the evenings bnt business
was brisk, and at 8 o'clock found him
very busy trying to induce a prominent
dealer to take six dozen axes, four dozen
grindstones and a half carload of wood
en iails. At this stage of tho proceed
ings a younger brother of thy yomg
lady dropped in to get a new jackknifc
and accidentally mentioned that the
Anil Arbor professor was up at tho
house.
It instantly occurred to tho progress
ive hardware and cutlery drummer
that the college mau came for no other
purpose than to lay his heart at the feet
of the young lady he himself adored.
For a moment there was a struggle in
hs heart, but he speedily got control of
himself and decided that he could not
possibly lcavo tho store, as tho dealer
was jut on the point of deciding to
t.iko the pails.
But tho thought of giving up the
lady, who had been for months con
stantly in his mind, waking and sleep
ing, was unbearable. Light suddenly
dawne-d on him. Handing the merchant
a circular explaining tho merits of his
new double bladcd chopping knives, he
requested the uso of tho dealer's tele
phone for five minutes, stepped to it aud
rang up the central oCicc.
A moment later tho telephone bell at
tho residence of tho young lady rang,
sharp and decisive. The professor had
leen therefor an hour talking pleasant
ly of tho grand educational work they
were doing in the department of fos
silogy at Ann Arbor. When the bell
rang, tho lady's father being absent
l.o is a plrysician she excused herself
and proceeded to tho adjoining room t"
answer it. The professor heard her step
to tho telephone and say "Yes, " makoa
short pause and say "Yes" again. Tlun
thTn was a 1 -nger pause, and he heart'
Lirivply, "Why why really, this i.
very sudden. " Then there was a tti''
longvr par.e, ami ho heard her say
' Yes, " very softly, and then "Goodby, "
and th'-n sl?e hung up tho receiver and
ci:::e into th; back room. Tho college
man moved closer to tho lady and iv
markd that it was a warm evening,
and he thought it was going to rain r.i.'

The lady responded to ir. aud a

further with this. Two minutes
later the professor went down the front
