WHERE "Canadian Club' Whisky Is not enjoyed because of its fragrant aroma and delicate and unmistakable flavor. Its remarkable blending qualities make it especially delicious in Cocktails, Highballs, or in any Mixed Drink in which Whisky is used. The prospective visit of the Sacra mento baseball nine to Honolulu was the chief topic of conversation among the local fans yesterday. Opinion seems to be much divided as to the ad visability of paying heavily for the privilege of witnessing hall played by a Coast combination. Some enthusiasts think that the visit of a Mainland nine would give the game a much-needed stimulus here. Others prophesy that the local lads would be so badly done up by their opponents that interest in the sport .would be killed. The major ity seem to favor a visit of the Sacra mentos, provided an enclosed ground can be obtained and a portion at least of the cash guarantee ' recovered in gate money. One of the oldest ball-players in town asked to express his opinion on the mattter yesterday said: "Five or six years ago an All Cali fornia nine came here and played a se ries of games. They were not a first class team but had a practical walk over in their game here. It cost be--tween sixteen and seventeen hundred dollars to bring them over. The only .way to get the Sacramentos to visit us would be by private subscription, and I doubt if there is sufficient inter est in the game here to raise the neces sary amount. If we could hold our own with the visitors it would un doubtedly boom the sport. I am afraid, however, that the visitors would have it all their own' way, and, as there is no chance to get any gate money here, would be the only ones to benefit by their visit. The town would be out of pocket and baseball in Honolulu would take a long time to recover from the rude shock of defeat." A. L. C. Atkinson said: "I think It would be foolish to put up any guaran tee money. If the town wants to spend money on sport why not send our own athletes abroad and give them the pleasure of a trip. To put up any large amount of money, wouldn't bring a proportionate return, anyhow. The sending of a baseball, football or row ing representation to the Mainland would, on the other hand, stimulate lo cal sport wonderfully. Good baH i rare in Honolulu. There is altogether too much individual work aid lack o combination for the local players to stand any kind of a show against a pood nine. A. R. Cunha expressed his views as follows: "Of course it would be a good thing to have the Sacramentos visit us. from the point of view of sport. The main trouble Is the lack of an enclosed ground or any kind of a ground for the matter of that. I doubt if a visiting ieam wouia consent to piay on our bum grounds. If we had a fenced ground it would be no trouble to collect $3,000 in gate money for a series of games, and the expenses of the Sacra mento could be paid out of our gate receipts. I think a picked local nine would give the visitors a hard rub. There are a lot of good players here. Kaai, for Instance, is a fine pitcher, and possesses the greatest speed I have ever seen; with good coaching he would make a crackerjack." The great question seems to be, who would constitute Honolulu's strongest nine? Opinions as to this vary great ly. While four or five men would cer tainly be chosen, there is a host of players qualified to fill the remaining positions. The only way 1f arrive at any definite conclusion In this matter is by election. For this purpose the above coupon Is printed.

"We orter git some credit fur not bein' any wuss'n what we are." said Plodding Pete. "Oh, I dunno," answered Meandering Mike.

(Continued from Page 1.) There are a half-dozen points of coral reef which should be cut off and the total amount will cost less than $400. 000. This would give an entrance chan nel of something like 300 fee in width and thirty feet In depth. The plans for the improvement of the Navy reservation, when the Hala wa lands have been acquired, have not yet been completed. The Idea .of plac ing a Naval hospital on Punchbowl, for which twenty acres of land was re served will be abandoned. For this purpose the lands which are to be ac quired on Ford's Island will be used. The lines of the proposed reservation on the Island were drawn so as to allow fie Bfte for the hospital to have suffi cient grounds and to occupy the high est location on the Island. The proposed station lands have beem extended greatly by the authorities at Washington, over the recommendations of the local officials. According to the plans made here the reservation was to comprise the lands which extend from the main entrance of the harbor to the line of the railroad, the small island and part of Ford's Island. But It was decided later to take in all the water front about the lower portion of the east loch, for the reason that If these were left In private ownership docks might be built there and the frequent passage of merchant ships would ma terially Interfere with the workings of the Navy yard. This consideration caused the taking up of the entire wa terfront about the loch's south shore, and there can never be any congestion of the channel by the building of slips and the swinging of sailing vessels, passing to or from them. The question of the location of the offensive works for the protection of the yards has often been considered, and while General Sanger and Colonel Maus were here recently they went over the grounds at the entrance of the harbor. The plan which was discussed informally was the placing of turret batteries upon both points at the en trance to the harbor, thus giving the widest range for the high-power guns. There Is a degree of natural protection afforded to the proposed Naval station by the contour of the lands. There Is i slight rise mauka of the site of the buildings, so that in case an enemy should try to shell the Navy yard, the elevation needed to send the shell over 'he rise of grounds would carry it be-v-ond the yard.

CONVEYED g BYSPARK The big fighting is over, with its La dysmiths, Modder Rivers and Storm bergs,, and in its place a new warfare has sprung up, a warfare on the run. The British are in Pretoria; they hold the towns and the railways, and the lively, waspish commandoes are act ive in their endeavors to make the out side country uninhabitable. There are in the Transvaal tranquil, whitewashed, iron-roofed dorps, through which the trains run twice ' daily with a homely punctuality; where shopkeepers grow fat in trade with the the big garrisons and officers fill com fortable billets as Provost Marshals, j District Commissioners and what not, ! which are none the less in a state of actual siege, so far as their surround ings go. In the streets and market places, in the shoxs and pretty houses, there is nothing save the everlasting topic of conversation to indicate the presence of war and the proximity of an armed foe. Good-natured soldiers lounge through the place and guards change with a clasp-and rattle at the corners of the streets. It looks rather like Germany in khaki, and the good relations which prevail between the townsfolk and the soldiery heighten the resemblance. Surrendered burghers, who have buried their Sunday-best Mausers and temporarily suspended active operations, smoke on their stoops 'with an outward air of patriarchal be- nevolence that discredits caution and invites good faith. To them the Brit isher, with his belts and bayonets, ranks and files, stars and grades, is an ever-interestiner anomalv: a Dushine: creature to be tolerated to a certain point, but to be sniped at and rushed on proper occasion. They come and they go, these burghers, regarding oaths of neutrality like the laws of the old con stitution, framed for the advantage and not for the oppression of the wise men. This Is a view of the inside. Beyond the pickets it is otherwise. From tha hills w-hlQh rise abruptly like islands standing out of the water the gray, comfortless veldt rolls nakedly to the very skirts of the town. The skyline is bare and clean as the edge of a knife, and, looking straight before one, one seeme to see the rim of the earth. An ox stalks solemnly across his graz ing ground; he Is the only moving thing visible between here and the sky. An Innocent outlook: a most Innocent out- look. So Innocent and open that the cossack post striding slowly from one boulder to another and back again it is well to have cover at hand almost permits himself to think of home and that girl. In the Transvaal the night drops quickly; "at one stride comes the dark!" The twilight, for the few brief minutes that it lasts, is exquisite. It smooths out the creases of the day, healing where the sun has touched, eas ing where the dust has stung, cooling the brain and comforting the body. The cossack post does think of home; he re members Just such another evening. Then talk was not of war. But a light, a mere spark, winks across the miles. It might have been a star, reconnolterlng over the edge of a cloud before making Its debut at the dance of the zodiac. On the other hand, it might have been a signal lamp, an affair of lenses and pivots, the tongue of a fate. The cossack post's home whisks aloft to bide a better while, and his eyes nail themselves on the point where that light appeared and went out. He waits perhaps five minutes. Thn it doderes up again. Dot-dash, dash-dash-dot, it says, blinking brazenly to his very face. The code Is a very strange one; nothing Is to be gathered from watching the message. He shoul ders his rifle, steps briskly over the parched grass toward his home-side man.- They are signalling to the town, where some of the patriarchal surren- ucieu uues ait maning me most 01 time among the soldiers who do practice keeping secrets or havinf crets to keep Itrvlit I . . o 1 I : imjsl. u.j a a. ciever vomit?
