Cornwell Has a few Words to Say Money Talks. MR. EDITOR: The letter of Mr. W. M. Cunningham, published yesterday in one of your evening contemporaries, is full of "misstatements." Mr. Cun ningham lays a great deal of stress on "passing around the hat" and rais ing the sum of $C00 for the improve ment of the track. While the Jockey club did not advance one cent toward this enterprise, he must remember that the members of the Jockey club subscribed for the bulk of "that $600." Mr. Cunningham should also remem ber that the Jockey club is arranging the program of events for the Kame haraeha Day races. When it decided to make the harness events best two in three heats instead of three to five, the club did not consider the wishes of any horseman in the premises, but very properly complied with the wish es of the public, whose money receiv ed at the gate, defrays the expenses of the meet. There is no getting around the fact that the patrons of the track are almost unanimously in favor of the two in three rule, which has been adopted at all the large race meets in the States. The Jockey club is offering the prizes for the entertainment of the public and I do think that we, the horse men, should criticise its course. However. Mr. Cunningham has been at the great expense of bringing a horse to Hawaii, which until recently fairly outclassed any horse on the Islands. Now Loupe and W. Wood, recent importations, are in the class of Mr. Cunningham's Our Boy. According to his own statement, Mr. Cunningham believes that his horse has not the speed to compete with these horses, but believes that he might have a show under the best three in five heats system. Even the believers in Our Boy will admit that this animal is in better con dition for the coming events, for the reason that he has been in the country longer and has been in training for a longer period. I regret that Our Boy is to be with drawn from the races, - but in order that Mr. Cunningham may satisfy him self as to what his animal is made of, I wish to inform him that I am ready and willing to match W. Wood against Our Boy for $500 or more at any time after June 11 and up to July 1. Mr. Cunningham, of all people, should be last to speak of the partici pation of Creole in a free-to-all class as "ridiculous." He has evidently for gotten the recent special meet when that plucky animal took a heat from his own horse. However, it is pretty generally known that Mr. Cunning ham allowed Creole to win the heat, to the great surprise of the public. It is to prevent a repetition of this kind of business that the Jockey club has instituted a change in harness races. W. H. COi.- A'ELL. Honolulu, May 2G. CONGRESS OF 31. DS. Medical Association Members Talk on Segregation. The last session of the annuaj meeting of the Medical Association of Hawaii was held at the home of Dr. Cooper last night. It was moved and carried that it was the sense of the meeting that the proposed raising of the license fee to practice from $10 to $30 be made. Through Dr. Alvarez, the committee appointed to draft suggestions to the Board of Health to improve the effi ciency of the law of segregation of lepers, reported in part a$ follows: "The main objection that Hawaiians raise against tne iar or segregation is the fact that once their dear ones are taken from them to Molokai, they must relinquish .forever the hope of seeing one another again. "Dr. Alvarez would mitigate the rigor of the law of segregation with out diminishing its efficiency. "To allow any one having relations or friends in the settlement to visit them once in six months." The report as amended was adopted as a whole. Was a Scoundrel. E. D. Giberson, the man who did some picture business here a short time ago, gave as a one reference a very prominent citizen of San Fran cisco. A letter from the coast man was received yesterday and he says that Giberson is a liar, a thief, a jail-i bird and a deserter from the United States army. One town man who was worsted by uioerson nas made a writ ten protest to the local society which introduced and recommended the fel low. Giberson escaped from Honolulu on the Cape Otway. the Klondike steamer. RAPIDLY DISAPPEARING. The supply of the "Celebrated Seat tle Bock Beer" is rapidly disappearing in tovrn.
