3 THEY ARE A SPORTING LOT Athletic Japanese and Chinese at the Quarantine Station. Foot racer Hate SfiriMtiug M atcliei-Tui;- of-lVar Team .Jaiaiif Win. Challenge the Inland. For a week there have been about CO Japanese and 15G Chinese at the Quarantine Station, in charge of John McVeigh and a guard. They arrived on the Oceanic and were discharged yesterday. Most of these immigrants have been on the ial ands before and are "up to snuff." The travelers set about to amuse themselves almost so soon as they landed. Several of the Japanese are footracers and there have been eome fine nprinting matches. On Saturday morning the Jap3 announced that they had organized a lightweight tug-of-war team that stood ready to meet any combina tion on earth. The Chinese accept ed the challenge at once. They picked ten men who weighed per haps 000 pounds more than the Japanese combination. They were allowed to train a couple of hours, and then the master of ceremonies announced the match. The pull occurred in the ring which the Japs had made for the sports. At tug ging the Jap3 bested the Chinese easily. The Chinese were allowed eleven, then twelve men against ten and were yanked over the line in short order both times. The surprise of the day came when a wrestling match between a Chinaman and a Japanese was ar ranged. It was Japanese style. To the utter amazement of the sub jects of the Mikado the man with the lemon colored face, threw Jap anese as fast as they could be brought. He knew every trick of the game and his skill and success made the Japanese mad. They eaid, anyhow, the sixty of them could whip the 15G Chinese. Prob ably they can. The offices of Jack McVeigh a3 mediator were required and he soon restored good feeling. This Jap tug-of-war team wants a game ashore and will issue a defi. They will enter their foot racers against all comers. The wrestling Chinaman believes he can handle any Jap on the islands. If he gets falls from the city cham pions the colony will send to the plantations for talent. OAHU COLLEGE. The New Buildings and Other Im provements to be Made. A recent number of the Califor nia Architect and Building News has as a supplement the accepted design for the new Oahu College building. The architects are C. B. Ripley and Arthur Reynolds, of this city. The lithograph gives a splendid view of the beautiful building and diagrams of two floors. Comment upon the work of the designers is complimentary. A feature of the new Oahu Col lege will be a complete mimic bank ing house. This will be for business practice. Adjuncts will be various "make believe" commercial con cerns. A thorough knowledge of business transactions will be im parted. Punahou's gymnasium is to be improved and Professor Hosmer hopes to add at an early date a manual training school. This is one of his pet ideas, and he is de termined to put it into execution. Still more attention is to be given to the famous Punahou grounds. There will be other features than the 1500-foot hedge of night-blooming cerus. There is a fine common with an ample border for landscaping. At present the grounds are given over to builders, but they are worth a visit at any time. Another Disagreement. For a second time a mixed jury has disagreed in the ejectment case of Jas. I. Dowsett v. Maukeala et al. The case remains on the calendar and promises to afTord entertain ment to all interested for a long time yet. This time the jury was out a little more than two hours. The land involved is an extensive tract along the new railway line, beyond Ewa. Soap Case Settled. A satisfaction of judgment has been filed in the long drawn out case of Rawlins against the Hono lulu Soap Works. The plaintiff acknowledges receipt of $2377. This caEe has been in the courts many months. Mr. Rawlins is, quite naturally, very much pleased over the outcome and even the de fendants appear to be glad that the case is settled.

The Dockery investigation, however, legislated him out of oScc. In entering npon the dischargo'cf his duties Mr. Pugh finds himself seriously handicapped, owing to tho failuroof congress to provide suQcient fund3 for tho proper collection of tho incomo tax. Congress appropriated only 9,000 for tho purpose, although tho treasury ofa WILLIAM n. ruon. cials estimated that $o00, 000 was needed and asked congress to provide thatsum.

Scott, Manager of the Ililo Sugar Company gives the following wonderful record of the working of the NATIONAL CANE SHRED DER, which was erected by their works at the commence ment of the crop just har vested: "During the past week tho Hilo Sugar Company's mill ex ceeded any of its former records by closing tho 125 hours grinding with an output ofSOOftons. This is fully 10 per cent, more than the best work of former years. "The three roller mill being 26 in. by 54 in. and tho two roller mill 30 in. by 60 in. The first mill doing this amount of work in an efficient manner and with great ease, compared with work on whole cane, owing to thorough preparation of the cane by the National Cane Shredder, recently erec ted by tho Company. And by its uso the extrac tion has been increased from 3 per cent, to 5 per cent, on all kinds of cane, and in some cases SO per cent, has been reached; the average being 75 to 7S per cent., according to quality. "I continue to find the megass from shredded cane better fuel than from whole cane. "The shredder has been working day and night for seven months and has given me entire satisfaction, having shredded during that time about seventy thousand tons of cane, and a large part of it being hard ratoons. "The shredder and engine require very little care or attention." GSPPlans and specifications of these shredders may be seen at the office of . G. Irwin & Co.
