Read the Ilaicaiian Gazette HI 1 (Semi-WeeMy Park Record to Be Broken Wag ers The "Two in Three" Proposition. It was reported last evening that a hui of the younger "sports had sent forward by the Doric an order for a harness racing horse that would show the way to any of the late importa tions of speed stock. It will be diffi cult indeed to get such a horse, but the assurance ia ventured that the ani mal will be forthcoming for June 11 business. The matter of two heats in three instead of three in five for the pacing and trotting events has not been drop ped by any means. The change is still being persistently urged by men of in fluence in the Hawaiian Jockey Club and it is likely to be made. It is strong ly recommended by many of the best patrons of the track. One of the own ers who has been in marked opposition to the proposed reform from the first said yesterday, when perhaps off his guard, that he would have been agree able but for the fact that a certain individual with whom he had an old difference was so much in favor of the change. This temper may disappear. On next Saturday occurs the match between Hollinger's Margaret H and Norton's Directress. The favorite had been up to yesterday Directress, but some of the backers of the favorite have been trying to "hedge," that is protect themselves by betting some thing on the other entry. Both ani mals are in good condition and have been showing the mile in the neigh borhood of 2:28. More interest is taken in the Violin Irish Lassie match than in anything of the sort here for years. It is known that Violin has worked out the mile in 2:24 and that Irish Lassie has done the same thing in 2:25 or under. It is claimed that in the fast trial caught the driver of Irish Lassie "slowed, up" in a very marked manner on the last eighth. One wager has been made "that if Irish Lassie wins the track record (2:21 1-2) will be beaten." Men are at the track every day now with split second watches trying to satis fy themselves as to the merits of all the match horses as well as others in training for June 11. In the match events there does not enter that fear prevailing on open days that by some means the best horse may not finish first. IDEAS FOR INDUSTRIES. Possibilities for Development in Fruit Culture. MR. EDITOR: I have read with much interest your forcible articles on "No Tropical Fruits," "Local Study," etc., in which you , show yourself to be a true patriot who has the wellfare of the masses of the people and the de velopment of the resources of the country at heart. We have the capi tal, skill, soil, climate, muscle and ev erything else needed for the people to work under proper methods and this would soon be a land "flowing with milk and honey." I would suggest the following plan which might be greatly modified to suit ideas and conditions. Let the Government appoint Industrial Boards from the ablest local men and women throughout the Islands, whose duty would be to dir.ect and encourage the people, to teach those who needed instruction, to form associations, to offer prizes for well kept ranches, fine gardens, execellent produce, to find markets, appoint agents to handle pro duce, etc. If the land in Kona alone, between the coffee belt and the sea, which is now a dreary waste, were properly cultivated, it would be capa ble of giving a comfortable living to every Hawaiian on the Islands. The papaia, cocoanut tree, grape vine and peanut, grow well by the sea. A little higher the banana and pineapple do well. Thousands of pigs and chickens could be raised from the fruit of the papaia. Honey might be produced in great abundance. The palm from which the Panama hat is made, grows well here. In the coffee belt all kinds of fruit and garden produce can easily be raised. Above the coffee belt there is excellent timber which could be turned into lumber and furniture. Each school should have a few acres of land on which the pupils might be taught to produce everything of which their locality, is capable. The school hours should be extended from 8:30 a. m. to 4 p. m., and the pupils should enjoy a good free lunch at noon. The girls could make all the children's clothing, make hats, cook, etc., while the boys would do the rougher work on the land and in the school factories. You have advised the manufacture of gloves. Could not the raw material be produced and shipped to France, Japan and other countries, to be made into gloves? It seems to me that great quantities of raw silk and cotton might also be produced in Hawaii which would find a reody market in other parts of the world. I am suggesting nothing new in my Funeral of a Child. A coffin containing the body of a lit tle child was carried to the King street cemetery yesterday by four little girls, dressed in white. Behind, as mourners, were four or five more little girls dressed in white and three men. All were Portuguese. It was remarked as very strange that there were no wo men taking part in the funeral. REWARD OF MERIT. At the CHICAGO CYCLE SHOW in 1S97, each visitor on entering the Sfrow was handed a coupon reading as below: "After viewing the exhibits, kindly fill in the name of the Bicycle which pleases you best as regards beauty and mechanical merit, and deposit the coupon in baillot box near exits. Xame of Bicycle " The "Shirk" received 17.4S9 ballots against 12,377 the next 'highest. When it is .known that all the leading makes of wheels in the United States were on exhibition at this Show, the above speaks for itself. The HONOLULU BICYCLE CO. have secured the Agency for thi3 strictly high grade wheel. IT WILL INTEREST YOU TO CALL AND SEE IT. The SHIRK is the best thing that ever happened.
