been provided for the Ladies' doubles
Pearson, Potter & Co. offer the choice
of the best rackets made tq the win
ners of that contest. The cut glass

The National Lawn Tennis Associa
tion rules for 1899 will govern all con
tests. This year's tournament should bring
out some of the best tennis yet played
on local courts. The players have
practiced earnestly and their work now
is correspondingly good.
Tennis now has an established foot
ing in Honolulu. In this year's Wright
and Ditson's Guide, the tennis Blue
book, five pages are devoted to the
sport in this city. The pictures of
Willie Roth and Wilder Wight are
also given.
This year's tournament should tend
to make Honolulu even better recogniz
ed in the tennis world than she is now.
PACIFIC THEOLOGICAL.
The Old Seminary to be Moved from
Oakland, to Berkeley.
OAKLAND, April 25. Oakland is to
lose the Pacific Theological -Seminary
which for thirty years has been one
of the best known religious educa
tional institutions on the coast. This
step was decided upon this evening at
one of the most representative Con
gregational conferences ever held here.
There are many reasons given for
the change of the location of the semi
nary, but one of the most pressing is
the question of finances. For some
time it has been acknowledged by the
trustees that the institution could be
conducted as effectively in a locality
where taxes are not so high and where
land is not so valuable. It was not
without many expressions of regret
that it was .determined to move the
well known institution to Berkeley, for
it has been one of the most active cen
ters of education since Oakland first
began to grow. In 1869, when its pre
sent site was a wilderness and land was
valued by the acre, the college was
founded. Now it is located in the cen
ter of the most valuable residence dis
trict of the city, and land is quoted by
the foot.
The board of trustees definitely de
cided in favor of the change at a meet
ing held late this afternoon at the
seminary in this city, following the
thirtieth anniversary of the seminary,
which was observed today.
FISH FOR SOLDIERS.
WASHINGTON, April 24. The com
missary department of the Army has

diers as desire it an equal value in fish

The restriction rega:;;lii g the issue of
fish when beef cannat be obtained is
removed. Ham or other articles of sale
ir. equal money value to the be?f may
be issued. To the present ration two
ounces of dried fruits are added.
NEW YORK ANTI-TRUST LAW.
ALBANY, N. Y., April 24 The As
sembly tonight passed the Senate anti
trust bill by a vote of 105 to 2. The
purpose of the bill ie to prevent mo
nopolies in articles or commodities of
common use and to prohibit restraints

alties for violations of the provisions
of the act and directing procedure to

tions. CALL DECLINED.
NEW YORK, April 24. The follow
ing cablegram was today received from
Rev. Alex. Connell of the Regent
square Presbyterian Church, London,
to whom was tendered the pulpit of the
Fifth-avenue Presbyterian Church to
fill the vacancy caused by the death of
Dr. John Hall: "After serious consider
ation, Dr. Connell has decided to de
cline the call. This decision is final.
