Ltd. 1 MASCOTS DF 'RIGGER CLUB Doings "of Junior Members of the Sporting Seaside Organization. Hotel, but was once protege of Queen Emma and used to stand on the surf board with her in the good old days, is taking a deep interest in the club that now owns the land once possess ed by the Queen. Mrs. Arnold and little Marie discuss quite seriously sometimes a great luau that is to take place on the grounds of the Outrigger Club, when it is expected that the club mascot will be permitted to remain up long enough to assist the friend of Queen Emma, who is to prepare the feast. There are happy days at the seaside just now, and more new boards were tried Sunday than ever before. KAMEHAMEHA DAY RACES The Outrigger Club has adopted a mascot a pair of them, in fact. Every day tiny Marie Brooke, of the Seaside Hotel, trots over to help superintend the erection of the grass Louses that the Outrigger Club is putting up. Some times she takes with her her tame sparrow, and the two, the sparrow perched contentedly on Marie's shoul der, watch the progress of the work. Tame sparrows, by the way, have be come quite a specialty of the Seaside Hotel. Daily these intrusive little birus perch on the chairs of the guests at dinner, and noisily demand crumbs of bread. One young sparrow has taken a violent fancy to five-year-old Marie Brooke, and follows her everywhere, perching on the foot of her bed at night and on the back of her chair at table during meal hours. Master Arthur Brown, the young son of the Commissioner of Immigration, who occupies one of the hotel cottages, also has a pet sparrow, a pert young bird that followed him home one day and almost pecked out the -eye of a member of the family. When Burton Holmes first visited the Seaside and suggested the formation of the Outrigger Club, he became a slave to little Marie, and declared that she should become its mascot, and so she has and Marie, by the way, has just written a very cute letter to her moving picture admirer. The Outrigger Club grounds in their present state of building operations are, of course, the frequent lounging place of all the urchins of Waikiki. Prince David's little son and daughter, who are the guests of Major Purdy, are daily visitors, anil spend much of their time playing under the grass roofs of the native Hawaiian houses. Master Arthur Oilman is also a fre- nnpnt triitAr nnil tiaa tlio linnrvr nf i Placing in commission the first of the ya have already gone into train- fleet of outrigger canoes belonging to club members. There will be three or four match races at Kapiolani Park on the after noon of Kamehameha Day and those interested are trying to arrange a pro gram which will fill in the time from 3 to 6 p. m. Makaala and the bay surprise party which defeated the black last Satur day will hook up again over a quarter of a mile. There will also be a three-cornered race at a quarter between Judge An drade's sorrel horse, E. H. Lewis' Sham rock and a sorrel runner from Hawaii. George Ward's Kauai horse will run a half with Duke Spencer Jr., and there is possibility of a return match between Indigo and Sure Shot at three eighths of a mile. Indigo, it will be remembered, beat Sure Shot by a neck at the same distance a week ago. Another event may be an automobile race with speed counting all the way. An effort is to be made to induce the Honolulu Rapid Transit & Land Co. to offer some purses. The crowd which will attend the races will, cer tainly be large enough to warrant the company expending a little in the way of purses. MAY EAT PIES ON DIAMOND The proposed pie-eating contest , is taking shape and a number of local Dr. Humphris bought a small canoe the day he paid his dues and became a member but alas! the canoe leaked, lacked a coat of paint, and was di vorced from its outrigger. Dr. Hum phris can decline the splenus coli back ing for the great event, The contest will probably be held at the baseball park some Saturday be fore the first game. Whether the Rap id Transit Co. will issue passes for the pie-eaters Is not yet known. The S. P. C. A. are taking an inter est in the affair and it is understood ward, hut when voune Gilman beean talking to him about putting on newjthat tney wiI protest against pies be yakas and an ama. the Doctor dis-llnS used made fruits with stones in mem, suon as mangoes, piums ana apricots. It is feared that the hurried demolition of pies made with the fruits mentioned may lead to unpleasant re sults, should the stones be swallowed in the excitement of the contest. It is rumored that the Bulletin team will compete under the name of the Elephant Ears, while the Star aggre gation will go in under the title of the erectly said, "Do so, my boy, and you are a partner in my boat." So for a week there was boiling of pitch and tying of outriggers, then Sunday the Doctor was taken out for a trial spin in the deep. He behaved splendidly, so did the canoe, until the little captain decided to give his part ner what is technically known among NEW YORK, April i6th, 1908. In this year's Fort George hillclimb contest the best climber in the stock car division evolved in the Stevens-Diiryea "Six" which, piloted by P. J. Robinson, captured not only) the $3000 to $4000 gas oline event, but the six-cylinder cup as well. FURTHER VICTORY HARTFORD, May 16th, 190S. In the 174 mile endurance run of the Automobile Cub of Hart ford, over Hartford-Waterbury route, the light "Six" with 4 passen gers averaged 15 1-7 miles per gallon of gasoline, winning the gaso line consumption test for cars over $3000. These victories were won over the best imported and American cars. Here is the light "Six." .-, -'. ; i 1 T ' - - x -t inanity. :.m..i; TdZ V ' 4 - I - VON HAW-YOUNG COMPANY, LTD.

The Advertiser team will suggested that' the Doctor sit further forward, selected a big wave, and down shot the canoe until she touched coral. Then there was a half-mile swim in to shore. Tom Sawyer couldn't have managed the thing bet ter himself, and the only fly in the ointment to Master Arthur was the fact that meanwhile his chum, Harold Hustace, was doing the "Joe Harper" act, much to the delight of Ruth Soper, who under his tutelage is learning to ride the surfboard like a professional. Ruth is the leader of a little group of Punahou schoolgirls who have taken up surfing since the Outrigger Club was formed, and Insist that they will have a club and clubhouse of their onw if the boys' club dues do not ad mit girl members, Ruth's ambition is to stand on the .board and Harold is sure that she will in . two more lessons. Little Margaret Center, the charm ing fancy dancer, is another dainty youngster who comes to the beach frequently to take surfing lessons from the club members. In fact, it will not be long before quite a number of young girls will be able to stand on the board, something that has not been seen at Waikiki for several years. Crews are beginning to form for canoe practise, and the expert surf boarders are also beginning to prac tise up the old stroke. Master Harold Hustace won the cup at the last surf ing contest, but his brother Curtis, Atherton Gilman, Lane Webster and several newcomers in the field are among those named as possible win ners of the first club contest. Balis,, dances, smokers and concerts are already being discussed under the open grass roofs of the Outrigger Club, and Mrs. Arnold, who now pre-. sides over the destinies of the Seaside! be called either the Gobblers or the Slit Mouths.

Reuter was in fine form Saturday, with speed to burn. Lota and Bruns acted the part of tumblers in their mix-up at first. Fern was all there with the willow, doing much to bring the game home for his team. Mackenzie, for his first season in the big league, is doing well, especially in his bunting. Soares changed positions with Bar ney, and then retired with a nasty gash on his "meat hand." Olmos seldom misjudges a ball, but was certainly off when taking Hender son's pretty hit in the third Leslie was wild and in poor form to relieve Chillingworth, who was doing nicely at the time of his release The Kams. have that winning streak again, and with a little encouragement there'll be no holding them at all. Kia put a stop to the Jewels' chance of winning bv making one more of his impossibles, retiring the side at a criti cal moment. Davis redeemed his bad throwing by planting one over in the Japanese vil lage outside the fence and romping home in grand style. Evers' one-handed stop in the eighth was of the kind that come in books only. Xo one even thought he'd try for it, j-et he got it. The fans are alive with interest now, in expectation of what will happen when the Diamond Heads and Kame hamehas meet next Saturday. George Kluegel was in his usual posi tion on the twa bleachers, mil was id poor voice for coaching. "Doc" Mon sarrat filled the gap acceptably. Kia's hit comes near to being the longest hjt on record in this ground, the ball going: up against the fence near the sore board, with a good roll still in it. Barney was there in blue as usual, and the league is five bones richer. Si lence is golden in some eases, and Bar ney was all the former throughout the game. Like the parrot, however, he thought a whole lot. Saturday's cames were full of sur prises for the fans who have been fol lowing the games this season, the big gest surprise of all coming in the set back of the Jewels.

Guerrero, the crack first baseman of the Sweet Violets, played a fin game at Heeia on Sunday, making three errors and two wild throws. The semiannual shoot for the cham- ing, thev played a beautiful uphill game, and should have won. Bert was slow in getting the boys for this day. After considerable discussion it was agreed not to play any league games on the holiday. The Diamond Heads wanted to play on Thursday but an objection was raised by Punahous who are short of pitchers. Wise of the Kams said that his team was willing to play on Thursday pro vided the teams would agree to use only one pitcher in the Thursday and Saturday games. This, however, was not satisfactory to the Puns. A motion by Gleason that one of Sat urday's games be played on Thursday and the other on the regular scnea uled date was lost. There will be an exhibition game at the park on Thursday between picked league teams, commencing at 3:30 p. m. REAL GAME ON SATURDAY There will be a game of cricket at Makikf on Saturday between run teams selected by the captain and vice captain of the Honolulu Cricket Club. Last Saturday the play was of a practise nature, but this week a real game will be played which promises to be very interesting, as a number of the best players in the club have promised to turn out. The game will start at 2:15 p. m. punctually and there will be the usual hot-weather refreshments for the players. Lockboxes in the postoffice are not plentiful enough to supply the demand.
