Desky, the man who put up the capital to give the boys a fine track at Kewalo; R. L. Conkling, the hustling bicycle man ager; Dan N. Whitman, champion of Southern California; George O. Sha rick, champion of the Pacific Coast; Allan .N. Jones, who has won first prizes in events galore, one of whose latest feats was the defeat of Otto Ziegler, whose fast 'riding was flashed from Pacific to Atlantic Coasts in all the papers; and, last, but not least, "Trilby" Fowler, that very eccentric young bicycle rider of San Francisco, who doe's not mind going down a flight of stairs backwards while mounted on his favorite wheel, just to get up an appetite for breakfast, and appears on the track in a suit striped with yellow and black and cries out: "How am I for a wasp?" The crack riders from California, their manager and "Trilby" are a fine set of fellows, and Honolulu gives wel come to them, not alone on account of their personalities, but from the fact that they have come here to give the people some good, clean sport. It is Just euch work as that which Mr. Desky and his able associates have been doing that will give Honolulu a slide along in the line of sports. . It is very well to have local sports and to encourage the people who take part therein, but it is the rubbing against outside talent that counts for most, and that lends an interest hitherto un known. A start has been made, and there is no reason why, as the years roll along, there should not be bicycle riders, football, baseball and tennis players, as well as crack oarsmen, coming to Hawaii from that land where sports of all kinds are indulged in to a great extent America. When the crack riders with their manager, Mr. Conkling, arrived here vesterdav. they expressed their admir ation for this hustling little place but when they saw the track at Kewalo with its fine surface and its arrange ment for speed, not forgetting the beautiful scenery round about, they could not fully express themselves. Mr. Conkling said: "I have been on a great many tracks, but I tell you candidly I never saw one that could in any way compare with this. It is great, and I am glad we came. There is no doubt that very fast time can be made on this track, and after the opening, the good fellows I have in my charge will try for records." Each one of ' the riders comes with his own wheel, while Jones has two. There are also two tandems and a triplet in the lot. "Trilby" brought the triplet up town and rode on one seat after the other while speeding along. He is quite a restless chap. The crack riders were all out on the track yesterday afternoon and indulg ed in some good, swift turns, paced by tandems or . otherwise. They ride m the very best of form, with that easy, craceful movement that characterizes men who have had experience. On Saturday there will be a lot or fun at the nark. In the afternoon there will be riding and then again in the evening, the nark will be illuminated and the riders, both local and foreign, will sneed around the track. The. ev ents arranged for will be well worth seeing. "Trilby" will give an exhibi tion. TOOK POSSESSION. Limited. MERCHANT ST., HONOLULU.

He was arrested yesterday morning for taking possession of premises not his own. The Chinaman in charge of the Spreckels' home at Waikiki called in on Mr. Giffard on Wednesday and com plained that a sailor had taken pos session of the place and would not leave. He had been there about a week His days were spent up in the lookout, while his nights were spent in the house. He had a knife on his person and seemed to be a dangerous person. Mr. Giffard laid in a complaint at the Police Station, and yesterday morning Patrolman Houston was sent out to in vestigate. He found King up in the lookout and, after making him give up his knife, brought him down to the Police Station. King told of how he had been fa vorably impressed with the stories of Hawaii as a coffee-growing island. He concluded he would desert and go into the business, for he had had a grea deal of experience at planting coffee To keep in concealment until he could get to Hawaii was his aim.
