The arrival by the Alameda of three fac simile shells for the local boat clubs mark the beginning of a new era in acquatic sports in the islands. From the beginning of boat-rowing to the present date, the public has been treated to a series of disputes, which were as unnecessary as they were un pleasant. Tbe cause of these disagree ments has always been that either one club or the other has had a better or worse boat than Its adversary, and the feeling has consequently been that crews which had taken the trouble necessary in training for races were bound to win or lose on account of their superior or inferior boat. Such impediments to true sport can not hereafter appear, for when crews come to the starting post in boats exactly alike they can feel that the winning of the race will depend on the crew's exertions alone,and the fairness of the idea must be apparent to all. Tbe boats were ordered from Aus tralia because it was found, after a tarofiil inmiirv. that thev could be purchased at a much less co?t there than elsewhere. W. T. Greenland & Sons, Melbourne, who executed the order, are builders of iirst-clafs repute in tbe Colonies, and their name is sufficient guarantee that the boats are well built from stem to stern. It might be thought by some that preference has been shown to any one club here, and to dispel such an idea the boats were marked simply No. 1, No. 2 and No. 3, and were drawn for by lot the day before their arrival by representatives of the three clubs. The dimensions of the boats are: Length 40 feet, breadth 22 inches, depth 12 inches; and are built of Spanish cedar, finished with pine. Being for practice purposes, they are built some two feet shorter and two and a half inches wider than racing boats. They are also clinker-built in order to give more strength and dura bility. The material reduction in the cost of the boats is a feature of no small im portance in the change from barge to shell rowing. The cost of barges here tofore imported varied from $750 to $1000, whereas the cot-1 of these shells is iu the neighborhood of $200, and that of racing shells about $300 land ed here. Now that the clubs have agreed to unite on the style of boat to be used in future, and, as they have placed themselves on a more equal footing in other matters, why do they not unite in forming a Hawaiian Racing Asso ciation. The value of such organiza tion cannot be overestimated, for representing the interests f all it would be in a position to provide for the equitable management of all re gattas; decide all matters in dispute between clubs and generally promote the present and future welfare of acquatic sport. Being composed as it naturally would be of representatives men, it would meet, calmly discuss and carefully and finally decide any question that might arise. It is sur prising that such an important step has been delayed so long. In all parts of the world aquatic contests are con ducted amicably under similar ar rangements, and yet Hawaii, with its handsome boat houses and scores of enthusiasts is content to jog along without one. The lack of popular amusement here FACSIMILE OF NEW SHELLS RECEIVED FROM AUSTRALIA FOR LOCAL CLUBS. SLIDING SEAT SHOWN ABOVE. (Sketched by an Advertiser Artist.) necessarily concentrates public atten tion very strongly on boat rac ing and more especially so since members of nearly every family in Honolulu belong to either one or tbe other of our boat clubs. It is, therefore, to be very earnestly hoped that the race which must come off in a few months will be managed in a different and much more satisfac tory manner than some the public has witnessed. The general public has materially assisted in placing clubs on a permanent footing here as they may have respectively required aid and should receive some pleasant return for its outlay. Given good boats, boathouses and the splendid course that nature has provided on Pearl Harbor, not forget ting, by the way, the cheap rates that Mr. Dillingham is always pleased to make on regatta days, there cannot be found a single stumbling block in the wy of a glorious future for acquatic sports iu Hawaii-nei. m The first of the preliminary ten nis tournaments will take place this afternoon at 4:30 on C. A. Brown's court. W. F. Thrum and Charles Hyde will cross rackets with William Godfrey and Ernest Wodehouse. j 80x176 feet ' 80x17ft feet Sold i I " ' - - 80x176 feet 80x176 feet Sold 80x176 feet 80x176 feet Sold J , I I 80x176 feet 50x176 eet Sold House 4 ft 9 I . g . ... ft 80x170 feet S0xl76 feet Soid o 5 . , - s ftj Ik - Z " I"- r-t s i 1 i I . 1 1 i s i The above diagram shows the property formerly owned by Me.

Regular Monthly Meeting of the Woman's Board Held Thursday. The regular monthly meeting of the Woman's Board of Foreign Missions was held Thureday in the parlors of Central Union Church. Over eighty ladies were present, a large number of Kawaiahao Sem inary girls being among them. The main feature of the session was a paper presented by Mrs Coan, relating to the life of her mother, Mrs. Bingham, who, to gether with her husband, were the first missionaries to land on Ha waiian soil. Mrs. Coan Bpoke of the old Bingham home, which used to stand on the site now occupied by the postoffice ; the trials and pri vations endured by her father and mother; their good influence on the Hawaiians ; friendship with the royal family, and of the great suc cess of their mission the Chris tianizing of tbe Hawaiians. An oil painting of Mr. and Mrs. m Bingham, placed side by side on one piece of canvas, was set upon an easel and decorated with myrtle wreaths. The painting was done about fifty years ago by Captain Morse,' the inventor of the tele graph, who was at that time an artist by profession. Mrs. Soares gave an interesting talk on the work of the Portuguese mission. Reports of the other mis sions were made by the respective committees. The report of the new Helping Hand mission at Kawaiahao was made by Mrs. A. F. Cooke. The next meeting of the Board will be held the first Tuesday in May. Paul Isenberg received by the steamer Braunfels an Oldenberg cow from Hamburg, Germany. She was brought ashore yesterday and taken to Waialae ranch shortly after the steamer docked. One died on the passage from the Azores. The cow is the first of the breed imported to the Islands. PI1KOI STB EET. BARGAINS ! -:- BARGAINS ! ! FOR TWO DAYS ONLY.
