CYCLOMER Will Be More Racing en tie Scenic Tract A LOCAL HUI IS TO LEASE Young Men Form An Association. Will Give Good Clean Sport. To Provide Pace. Cyclomere i.s to remain. -ur. uesKy has not relented at all lie stu: clings m a remarkably fixed manner to his determination tn hnvp. more to Avith bicycle racing. But racing on the scenic trnrk- ha? not ended. There is in store for the thou sands of Honolulu people who like the track events any number cf good pro grams. ;Aii association of young men who agree that good, clean racing should be continued here will take hold of Cyclomere on a lease. The young men are all responsible citizens, well known and would not under any circumstances allow their names to be used or iden tify themselves with other than cor rect sporting. There are five in the hui, and fous are riders. Two of the riders have been very prominent in all the meets at the track. During the forenoon today an ar practically settled upon yesterday, will be entered into formally by the sign ing of 'papers. An ear'y announce ment will be made of the first meet under the direction of the Company. The racers ivill probably be given about two weeks in which to train. In the meantime the track and grounds will receive such repairs and attention as may be required. Comparatively little damage has been done by the re cent storms. In speaking yesterday of the report that the track was to be used for rac ing again, LYir. jjesKv saia: it is noi necessary, pernaps, to say again, uiai I am in earnest in my intention to have personally, nothing more to do with bicycle racing. It has worried me too much, and then I have more important matters that demand about all the time one man can command. I will make considerable money by doing away with Cyclomere park and sell ing the lots, particularly since it is settled that the Iron Works are in time going to that neighborhood. How ever, I will sacrifice something for the sake of encouraging a sport of which so many people here are fond. I will not stand in the way of some one else handling the track if they are capable and responsible people. The boys who , i ii. . & I are now negotiating nave tne i-uim- dence of the best people in Honolulu and I believe they will be successful. I have refused to entertain anj' pro posal to let the track out from week to week or month to month. I would listen to no lease term of less than half a year. I have told them that it may be said that it is the same a settled that a deal will go through. It had been a hope of mine from the time I started operations in Kewalo that Cyclomere could be kept as a place of resort. There is nothing finer of the kind in any country. The neo- p!e to a large extent seemed to think the samp, but there wer some trouble makers who made the thing a burden to me and to ray other business. So far as I am concerned now, the track may run along for quite a time if the public approves of it." One of the yourg men who will lead in the operations of the hui pays f the future of the enterprise: ""We are going into this thing to keep racing alive here. We believe that in time the people will come to the frame of mind that they will refuse to allow any thought of dispensing with the track. It is a fine pleasure place for every body, whether they know anything about wheeling or not. We have ro idea of piling up lots of money for ourse'ves. Indeed, we shall be satis fied if the venture pay? us a very mod erate return in a strictly business way. Five of us will put in considerable cf our time and we shall be compelled to hire some help. We do not claim by any means that we will revo'utionizp racing or show the people such sport as they never heard of, but we will be mighty careful and painstaking in everything. In the first place r.ere will not be entertained for an instant from any quarter the slightest s;gn of rowdyi?m. Person? who canno be have themselves will b promptly tak en frcm the track. We are goi"g to improve racing and avoid a whole lot of wransding by pacing every scratch race. This was advocated by a num ber from the first, but was not done. AT We can afford it, because two of our boys will do little else. We hope to be able to offer such prizes as will attract the riders and to satisfy them in all other ways and we hope to have pro grams that will insure good patron age. We have talked with a number of men whose endorsement will be of great assistance and without a single exception we have received encourage-mnt." 'Didn't Know," Etc. niuam tuu m - O.

The planters in Kona will be asked to assist in the breeding of beetles for inocula tion and without doubt will readily comply.

There was a very distressing acci dent on the Oahu railroad near Makua at about 9 a. m. yesterday. iA handcar with a number of workmen and their tools was, being sent out and was going along at a pretty speedy rate, when near the barking sands, Wm. N. Ly- dick, one of the workmen, was thrown forward on the ground. The wheels passed over Lydick in the region of the abdomen and one of his ankles. The car was stopped and the injured man made as comfortable as possible. He was brought to town on the 1 o'clock train and taken immediately to the Queen's hospital. Upon examin ation, Lydick was found to be very dagerously injured. The car, passing over him in the region of the abdomen. caused internal injuries that will be difficult to heal. Lydick is an Ameri can, aged 38 years,' and is a trusted workman on the railroad, lie was perfectly conscious upon arrival at the lospital and told of the accident which resulted so seriously for himself.

UUB ot the important features in the new uin, to insure tne letting ot tne li censes only in communities where the majority of the residents favor them, is in the provision that applicants must first obtain the endorsement of the majority of the responsible members of the district. The number of licenses for each district is regulated by the number of inhabitants and the road traffic. With the exception of four districts the number of licenses for each is restricted to three. Waikiki. Moanalua and Kapalama shall be granted each one in this district, pro vided any are allowed. The licenses are to be placed at $200 each Senators Holstein and Schmidt of the committee say, in recommending tne substitute bill: "The reiport of the -Marshal and the respective Sheriffs snow mat. tne illicit seinng oi spiritu ous liquors is being carried on with out being checked in other districts and that some legislation covering the grounds mentioned in the measure should be enacted The free importation of California wines, was a temperance measure, and such licenses as these will insure the means in the outer districts against the drinking of such stuff, as now are illicitly sold." Senator Baldwin of the committee reported as follows: "I am not in favor of saloons, but illicit traffic, especially in the outer districts, has increased to such an extent that it seems to be wise to bring the traffic under better con trol and more under the surveillance of the police by well guarded law. The Sheriffs of the Islands urge that this be done. The law proposed is well guarded and no license can be issued under its provisions in any district except on the approval of the responsi ble citizens of the district in writing." The amendment to the tax act pre sented by the Finance Committee was returned from the Printing Commit tee and considered. The discussion which it provoked was principally on the definition of the word "merean tile in its application in the act. In a number of cases under the act as it was enforced in 1897, it was asserted that, the tav iic.se f5nr nn-rvMprl Snh pd nip i'i e in adaition to tne tax on pureiy mer cantile houses where business consist ed in stock in trade and the profits cl ueuvcu !UIUUS bUCU- SLOCK lei . r, , , . , , Af1 tho mc.o-o ? nm0n,?mant maintaining that under its provisions th, intprtAtntinn nrrl Q nnn!ir(inn . . ... v-.v.wj uuu., tle Finance Dpartment.

Many . . nrms were conuueung a uuhiuess muu was mane tin or several orancnes. In one sense it might be considered purely a mercantile establishment, in another it would clearly come within the meaning of the schedule. For this reason the amendment was not suffi ciently defined. Both the Attorney-General and Min ister Damon were opposed to the am endment. The former took the ground that it would practically defeat the purposes of the tax act in part as there would be no method of determin ing what was a mercantile business if no returns were to be made. The nresient. act. he areued. called for a return and :t was on that basis that the tax assessor performed his work. If the amendment, that mercantile houses should make no statement, should be enforced the assessor could mike no estimates except on the vo luntary returns of the houses them selves. He suggested that if the Sen ate insisted on the amendment it should be so worded that it could be ma:'e to apply only to section CS into which it was to be incorporated. Other sections were included under the head 0f "Tax Return," and the amendment j might be construed to include then also. Minister Damon said he saw a. grave danger in the amendment, that it might be construed to include more than even its promoters contemplated and even to render the act Inoperative in part. He advised (UMiWntinn .10 a after adjournment of the Legislature the Government would be left for two years and the Finance Department in its estimates for revenue must have something definite to work upon. The amended bill was referred for consideration to a special committee, the members of which were to be ap pointd later. The report of the Committee on Public IantU recommending setting apart the land at Aala and the old Ma li iki baseball grounds for free public recreation grounds was adopted and the bill went to the Committee on Knrollment. The House bill relating to a new division of tax appeal districts and placing the appointment of appeal courts in the hands of the President, was passed section by section on sec ond reading. Third reading was set for Wednesday. Senator McCandless introduced his bill making plumbing regulations for the Kona district of Oahu. Tho bill la a voluminous document. In it are in corporated specific regulations in oper ation in American cities providing for pipes, faucets draining and the like. It also provides for the appointment by the Board of Health of a Board of Examiners, the chairman of which shall be the Superintendent of Public Works, exofficio, with two other mem bers who shall be master plumbers. All plumbers shall be examined by this Board before licenses shall be issued to them. For the licenses the master plumbers shall pay $5 and the journey men $1. All plumbing work and spe cifications for work shall be inspected and approved by an Inspector to bo appointed by the Board of Health. Provisions are made for enforcing the regulations and penalties are attached. The bill passed first reading and "went to the Printing Committee. Senators Kauhane and Holstein were excused to go to Hawaii. At 11:45 the Senate adjourned. jiousi:. Hep. Pogue reported for the Finance Committee to whom was referred page 3 and lines 3G and 37 inclusive on page of Senate Bill 3. After recommend ing slight amendments, the report goes on to say: "We find that Messrs. Bishop & Co. hold as collateral, the same having been paid by them, a voucher approv ed by the Minister of Finance, for the printing of certificates of deposit amounting to $4 474.93, and that through some oversight this item has been heretofore overlooked. We do therefore recommend that on Page 4, between lines 45 and 4G, a new item bo inserted: Printing certificates of de posit, $4474.95. We further find that in the Postal Bureau there is an un paid bill for printing postal cards or expenses connected therewith of $713. 50. This amount is unpaid through no oversight or neglect of the Postal Bureau, as this bill was never pre sented until a short time since, al though contracted iMarch 30th, 1897. We do therefore further recommend that the following item be inserted: "Printing 80,000 postal cards, $713.50." The report was laid on the table to be considered with the bill. Rep. Loebenscein presented the re port of the Committee on Public Lands on various petitions and resolutions. Referred to the Printing Committee to be printed. Rep. Pogue asked for 30 days exten sion of time for the Finance Commit tee to consider the rapid transit and HMo Electric Railway bills. Rep. Rob ertson objected saying that 15 days was ample. The vote on 15 days stood 5 to 5, Vice-Speaker Kaai voter! on "Rep. Robertson's side." Rep. Paris presented the following petitions from Kona: 1. $25,000 for wide-ning and improv ing the present road from Kaohe to Aleka and extending to the Kau boun dary. (Continued on Page 2.)
