K J TESTA JPropriotor and Pub
llestdinc in Honolulu
Wo fully agree with Mr E S
Cunha that a public park in any
portion of tbo city and especially in
tho part wo call tho down town
would bo of enormous benefit to the
people nt largo as woll as an orna
ment to the growing business center
of tho capital
Mr Cunha is not quoted corroctly
by tho Advertiser when he is made
to say that the Arlington premises
lietweon Hotel and King streets
should bo donated by tho BiBhop
Estate to tho public Whnt he
moant to say at least was that a
groat benefit would bo conferred on
the community if the Bishop Estate
would be willing to diaposino of the
premises roforrod to instead of leas
ing or selling the lands to parties
who would crowd tho beautiful
premises with sky scrapers
Mr Cunha believes that sufficient
money could easily bo subscribed
among the many pooplo who mado
their wealth in Honolulu for the
purpose of purchasing the premises
and turning them into a beautiful
park He feels suro that Mr Alex
ander Young would be a generous
donator as a beautiful park oppo
site the magnificent business and
hotel to be erected by him and
along tho now street between Hotel
nnd King streots would in many
ways enhance the value of hifl pro
perty besides adding to tho appear
ance of tho Young block
Wo hope Mr Cunhas suggestion
will be heartily responded to and
wo feel sure that tbo trustees of the
Bishop Estate always generous to
wards public improvements will
willingly subscribe to a fund for tho
preservation as a park of tho his
torical premises whpro Pauahi Bish
op spent her youth and which Bhe
always loved and revered during
her life
The community should be thank
ful to Mr E S Cunha for bis time
ly suggestion and the old associa
tion for the beautifying and im
proving Honolulu should wnko up
jf it is not asleep for good and sup-
port Mr Cunhas motion
Robert Wilcox is not meeting sua

Exciting Baces at Pearl City With
Surprising Results
A large crowd of people attended
tbo boat races for tho championship
at Poarl Harbor on Saturday after
Every tramcar was over crowded
and overy hack pressed into service
to oarry tho gaily dressed girls and
the ilowor bedecked boys to tbo
Oahu Railway station where a train
of twenty largo cars was soon filled
and when the whistle Bounded it
called out standing room only and
very little of that
The train reaohod Pearl City after
a smart run and than began the
terrible pilgrimago to the boat
houses through ton feethigh more
or loss red dirt through algeroba
sbrubB and wire fences
No one had a kick coming how
ever until a few mild showers fell
just to mako the pretty white
dresses of tho ladies and the flannel
trousers of the men a proper khaki
color However the races were of
more interest than tho clothing and
all rushed along to seek shelter un
der tho dust we mean trees near
the pier whore the timekeepers wero
Gaily docoraled yachts were an
chored off the pier and they were
crowded with many people La
Paloma didnt budgo an inch and
looked especially pretty
Tbo launoh from the Iroquois
kindly placed at the disposition of
tho racing committee steamed to
wards tbo starting point signalling
on her way to tbo junior crews of
the Myrtlo and Hoalani to come
The Healanis wore confident of
winning this race and tho moneys
of the blues wero forthcoming at
any reasonable oiler to bet
After a tedious wait tho two
crews wero sent off and from the
first it was plain to see that tho
Myrtles had a walk over

After a short intermission during

and finishing linos At tho boat
houso tho Myrtles wero still ahead
and many peoplo started for tho

anxious to secure seats In the last
second tho Healanis mado a trem
endous spurt and passed tho finish

ahead of tho Myrtlos in 10 minutes
11 seconds
After that no mortal could hear
or understand anything A babel
of touguos yolling singing bowling

Judd is yot too much for tho boyB
who became exhausted iu following
his long and powerful stroke which
ho never abated for a second from
