WORLD'S NEWS DAILY Zoo's Hawaiian Village Being Moved to Waikiki for the Surf Riders. The Outrigger Canoe club will move into its clubhouse next week. Yester day a purehase was made of the two Hawaiian grass houses at the old zoo and they are now being moved in sec tions down to the Outrigger grounds at Waikiki. These two native grass houses are probably the best remaining samples of ancient Hawaiian housebuilding to be found in the islands. They were built by old time natives brought from Maui, Kauai and Hawaii, each bring ing the real hut gras3 with him from his native valley for the thatching. Real kou wood timbers bound with cinet, or.cocoanut fiber, was used, and skilled Hawaiian thatehers did their best to make the houses a credit to their art. It was not until yesterday at noon that the president of the Outrigger Canoe elub learned from C. G. Ballen tyne of the. street railways that these grass houses were still in perfect con dition, but about to be pulled down. He found the owner, Charles A. Bid dinger, an ardent outrigger enthusiast, and secured the houses for the elub; got the unanimous endorsement of the directors, hurried a contractor out to the zoo grounds, ordered workers sent up and this morning, with Vice Presi dent L. II. Herbert, was on hand to aid in the careful removal of these really valuable relics of the Hawaii that has all but passed away. Tourists now will ask no longer in vain to be directed to a real Hawaiian grass house, for one of these will be put facing the ocean, about midway between the Seaside and Moana hotels. This will be used for the present as a bath house by the members of the club. The other will face the stream and here will be stored the club surfboards. The spacious thatched lanais about these grass houses will afford ample protection from the glare of the sun, and while ample space will be left on the grounds for the carrying out of L. E. Tinkham's design of a hau tree lanai, doubtless his plans will now be modified and the Outrigger Canoe club will become the home of Hawaiian sports with only such buildings on the grounds as suggest the Hawaii that the tourist comes to see and the old Ha waii still beloved by the kamaaina. SAINTS HAMMER THE PUNAHOUS tn a clean, but rather slow, game played yesterday Yfternoon, on the Oahu College grounds, the St. Louis College second nine defeated the Oahu ans' second nine for a third time, by a score of 15 to 7.

The preliminaries for the Jockey Willis-Ah Sam scientific boxing con test, scheduled for decision a week from tonight at the Orpheum Theater, were arranged yesterday and are of a very attractive nature. The curtain-raiser will be a four round bout between Corporal Bird, Co. E, 20th Infantry, and Musician Oak ley, Co. G, 20th Infantry. These two men boxed a six-round draw some time ago at Fort Shafter, and it was a very lively affair. Since then Bird defeated Richardson at the Post in workmanlike style and many who saw him perform expressed an opinion that he was the best light weight in Honolulu today. Bird was to have boxed Eddie Tait, but the latter's health would not per mit the match being made. With OaWey he will put up as clever an ex hibition of the manly art of self-defense as has been seen in Honolulu for many a long day. Tlje boys will box at 133 pounds. The second preliminary will be a six-round affair between Private Mur phy, Co. E, 20th Infantry, and Private Piatt, Co. F, 20th Infantry. Murphy won easily from Poole in a bout before the Fort Shafter Athletic Club last month and was challenged by Piatt at the ringside. The men will go in at 156 pounds and a rattling mill is looked for, as both know the game and are gritty and fast. Ah Sam has been doing some box ing at the Kalanianaole Athletic Club In Kakaako of late. There is much good talent in that newly-formed or ganization, and whenever the China man visits the club there are always plenty of willing hands to keep him busy. Ah Sam has about five pounds to take off before next Saturday and ex pects to be able to do this comfortably and still be good and strong. He is a wiry-built boy and can shed weight without weakening himself appreci ably. His countrymen are accepting odds against him whenever as good as two to one Is offered. Willis did not box yesterday. He finds the climate a bit trying and is going to take no chances of going stale. He is in fine shape right now, and at the Baths, where he is training under the watchful eye of Eddie En sign, will be prepared to box with all comers within ten pounds of his weight from today on. Besides the three goes mentioned above, the program will probably be augmented by a Japanese wrestling match and a bag-punching exhibition. The prices will be of the popular order and sale of seats will commence next Thursday morning at Wall, Nich ols Co.'s store. KAAHUMANU, 13; . ALIIOLANI, I The Kaahumanu baseball team de feated the Aliiolani nine in the Junior Intercollegiate Baseball League at Ma kiki yesterday by the score of 13 to 1. The Kaahumanus had Alex Asam, the former slab artist of the Aalas, in the box, who succeeded in striking ten men out. The Ahlolanis were not in their usual form and lost the game through errors of the basemen and fielders. Although Hong Chack, the crack second-baseman of the C. A. C, and L. Achuck, the . ex-pitcher of the Orientals, were on their side, they could not prevent the Kaahumanus from running up a big score. The lineups yesterday were: Aliiolani Hong Chack, Kalua, Boyd, Daniel, Ceceil, L. Achuck, David, J. Woo, Foster. Kaahumanu Tan Lo. Isanii, J. Ay lett, P. Awai. H. Lishman, A. Asam, Yutaka, A. Wong.

SPORTS SURF-BOATING AND SURF-BOARDING. i j -L " ' I Polynesian Olympia in 1909 By Alexander , . v (Conclusion.) The Orientals are adepts at water fire-works, and are now going in for illuminated kite flying by night. We have the material and means of amus ing the whole world everything is at hand and ready, there would be no great expenses entailed. Patriotic citizens would doubtless be glad, for instance, to donate a "Wai kiki Cup" to be raced for by outrigger canoe from any part "of the Pacific. Surfing enthusiasts would take care that there was a surfboard cup and prize. A committee of ways and means composed of our leading citizens could easily take the matter In hand, a little energetic action and rates could be se cured from every part "of the world to Hawaii, for the Polynesian Olympian games of 1909. Every spring there is a fifty dollar one way rate from New York and Boston to Seattle, San Fran cisco and Los Angeles; a little hard work, perhaps and this in connection with a fifty dollar summer rate from the Coast to Hawal could be secured and a $199.00 bargain Olympian excur sion rate from Atlantic seaboard cities to Hawaii and return, while from Chi cago the round rate would then be but 1155.09. A series of cheap excursions : among our wonderful islands, well ad- . world one of the mos't unique and pic vertlsed, would attract many educat- j turesrjue carnivals of sports that time ors, school teachers and others besides!01 history has ever recorded. The ma , ' . , ( terial is all here ready, sportsmen from those who came for the sports alone. ral, over the wor,d wjn come to com. and the presence of every class would nPt trw hut insi thf ohalipntrps ultimately result in much benefit to Hawaii. Moreover, such a prospect would concentrate attention on our transportation problems and create . a situation that would compel alleviation. There is every prospect that Austra lasia and Hawaii will within another year have promotion rooms in several of the large cities of America and in jjonaon. United effort will then De made to have the through tourist stop over in Hawaii: facilities will be forth coming that now seem far away, and Hawaii will, it is hoped, enter into her own, and as the crossroad? of the Pa cific become the resting place of all who cross our seas, besides becoming both a summer and winter resort for the American people, who only need to know us as they have been forced by long sighted sensible transportation companies to know about Jamaica, to appreciate the fact that the Paradise of the Pacific is here among the islands of the blest where are found the high est mountains in America, the largest active and quiescent crater in the world, and the most delectable climate in the universe. Nature seems to have intended Ha waii as a world's recreation park. Oth er lands must build great buildings at enormous cost to house their exhibi tions that attract the crowds. No sucn expense is ours. We have but to say to our varied nationalities, amuse us, and they turn out beneath the waving Ij j i 2 ! . ' ..r. ni-f.r.j-in'alu!

J TT of applauding multitudes. Nowhere and boundless ocean, 1 nowhere else every sport and game played out doors the year round but it is August per haps, the . month of the great rollers, the month when the whole world can come to us, that is best suited for a carnival of world sports, among which the games and diversions of the Poly nesians should well take front rank, j We have but to say the word, each or ganization and race among us would take care of its share of the work the Promotion Committee then through its new publicity and press depart ment could Inform the tvorld and keep it thrilled with expectancy; our Trans portation Committee could use as a lever such a prospective carnival of sports to compel reasonable excursion rates from the mainland and among these Islands, with perhaps new . and more perfect service than we have ever had, and at lower rates. Show the transportation companies ' that the crowds are coming and they will pre pare, and make reductions, or if not others will step in the field who will, so it behooves every one who has the real interests of Hawaii at heart to re member that the Paradise of the Pa cific Is the garden spot of the world, and that we have but to say the word land it becomes possible to offer to the ! Next winter Burton Holmes talks ' and shows Hawaii at play from one end of America to the other, the Amer ican fleet spreads the fame of the Para di.e of the Pacific throughout the southern seas, Australasia, Japan and around the world. The Territorial Transportation Committee is even now working to bring about a joint or ganization of Australasia and Hawaii , for united advertising work throughout A QT1,i p)irnnp. with everv nros pect of early success. Nothing would lend itself to more picturesque adver tising than an Olympiad of Polynesian games in particular and cosmopolitan sports in general. Australasia, Amer ica, Asia and Europe would meet in Hawaii to contest with each other and carry away what honors and trophies they could. Moreover, as has been shown, such a carnival could be made the means of compelling better service to the Coast and the lowering of inter island rates or the placing In commis sion of other excursion boats. This would mean that Hawaii would become not only the American Capri, the is land. home of those who build palatial vacation villas, but the ultima thule of t'-"? Americai homeseeker, and after i all he is the man we are after. The ' Polynesian Olympia will focus the at tention of the world on Hawaii and with regular service between these Is lands and the coast and honest rates of travel prevailing among and be tween the islands both the tourist and the homeseeker become ours for the asldng. Let us have our world carni val of sports, (in the summer of 1SW)9 if possible), and show mankind that the heroic games of Greece still exist in kind, and that in every sport of later days the Paradise of the Pacific can hold her own and compete with others so whv not ask the world to come, and prepare ourselves for the event.

Quite a number of major league players are already casting longing glances at positions they would like to play on the team to be picked to meet the Foreigners when they come. The picking of the nine men will not be an icasy nfcitter, as there are many who can fill the various positions so welL It is hard to pick the winner of the Punahous-Salnts game today, as. both teams are playing on their toes. Jack Desha of the Colts has quite recovered, from his recent Illness and will be in line today and put his team on the winning end against the Saints. Someone wanted to bet Jack Doyle a gilt piece the other day on the Pu-nahou-Dlamond Head game, but Jack advised the man with the long sack to "go pay your taxes." There will be a change In the lineup of the Kams today, which will prob ably strengthen the team considerably. CRICKET THIS AFTERNOON Cricketers from the two British ves- sels in the harbor, the bark Holywood and the S. S. Klvaston, will engage the local wicket-defenders this after noon on the MaMkI field, the game lo be called at two o'clock charp. The visitors are said to be able to put a strong cloven in thf field and a good game may be expected. DOC FROST ON STRIKE Old Doc Frost has quit his Job and the fans who were looking to rouse him yesterday afternoon were doomed to bitter disappointment.
