(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.

For one month I propose to make a big cut in
Horse
Here is a partial list of the goods on which the cut will be
made: Salt Sacks, Hor?e Boots, Sheets, Hoods, Scrapers,
Bits, Sponges, Brushes, Bandages, Ointment, Condition Pow
ders, Embrocation.
Many of these goods are cut 50 per cent, making them lower
than ever before and lower than you well be able to buy them for
a month from now.
SPECIAL XOTE: This ad. made its appearance for the
first time May 1. Since that time the response has been very
generous. Don't wait too long.
SPECIAL XOTE' NO. 2: The fact of active war being in
existence will bring the price of these goods up higher than
before the cut. Better invest now.
