Territorial Band on the
Campus Many Spectators
of the UmfMre.
On the aKUa? campus of the Ka-
ftahcofe a lively baseball
was played yesterday afternoon.
U wh MMator's Day athletics, and
two school teams, the Kamebaratha
AtaleUe Club and the Blue and White.
Ja fcoaor to the day.
Several hundred people took advantage
at the IU9M Transit cars
te the sates of the campus, and
of the delightful weather prevailing,
to wltaesu what proved to be a
tost lateraeliag contest.
Both teams put up .1 good game,
both In the field aad at the bat. "but
the Athletics seemed to have better
practice and. generalship. Slemsen
( Dm K. A. C. ad Lemon of the Blue
aad Whit did very good work for
their respective teems, and Slemsen
certainly carried the batting honors
of 1 day.
Tu Athletics were first to bat and
"towttt out one. two. three. In short or-!.
Te Blwau followed suit and
seoead three, and then In the next
,ibr takings failed to score. In the
fourth lanlng the Athletics scored
oncp. In the fifth they again scored
nc. Prom that time on the game
waa a very lively one. There were
yells for the Athletics, quickly answered
by the rally hurrahs of the
Uttte and White sympathisers. Handkerchiefs
agitated by hundred? of
girls, wearing their favorite color,
added greatly to the gaiety of the
seaae. tho Hawaiian Band, at tho
tame time, joining in the chorus qf
enthusiasm, with their liveliest airs.
la the fifth Inning the Blue and
White appeared on the field with
a grim determination In their eyos.
but It was of no avail. Two pcorcs
went to the credit or the Athletics.
Im this tuning Slemsen made a splendid
home run and received a great
enratioa. KnUauslast'e friends of his
team took him off his feet and carted
him on their shoulders all over
the field. In the sixth inning tho
Clue am) White managed to score
once more. The seventh was the best
Inning of the whole game. Lemon and
Hardee ef the Blue and White swore
that their team would score, and it
did once; but at the same time the
K. A. C. boys did not go to sleep. J.
HISo made a great homo run, and at
the end of the inning his team had
scored three times. In the eighth
taaiag neither team scored.
There was considerable time wasted
by the pitchers of the K. A. C. On
several occasions. Richard kept swinging
the bail back and forth for fully
four or five minutes. So when 'the
evening shades began to fall over the
eaatpus, the teams were lining up
for the ninth ias'ng which they never
finished. After several creditable
base hits were made bv tho Blue and
WMte. the Athletics left tho field and

such a. decision was not accepted bv
both teams within a reasonable time,

The captain of the Bine and White
team Immediately accepted the umpire's
decision and declared that his
men were readv to play the ninth Inning
again at the pleasure of the Athletics.
The latter team, however, refused

It Is unfortunate that the kame.

By Local Talent.
Tho Francis Murphy Temperance
Association gave their usual Saturday
concert at Murphy hall lastnighL
A number of sailors were present and
Mjoed the elaborate program which
bad been prepared by the members
of the club.
Several numbers of the program deserve
special mention. A Hawaiian
quartet had offered their services
and sang a beautiful song entitled
"Mlkiol." George Bools made a hi:
with the new song, "Just Because I
Love You So," and had to respond to
an encore.
John Martin was on hand with his
humorous talk, and P. W. Ryder, F. G.
Noyes and P. Marulce MacMahon contributed
to the vocal part of the program.
The president of the club,
Moses K. N'akuina, addressed the audience

Honolulu Bound to
Have a Magnificent
But it Will Have For Its Real Objective
the Construction of a Read
to Rival the Famous Riverside
Drive of New York City.
For some time there has been talk
of a boulevard, to continue from the
Waikiki tuin on King streerV direct to
Kapiolani Park. The project is now
takiug definite shape, and within a
very few days articles of incorporation
will bo filed for a company, which is.
primarily organized for the purpose
or filing in low lands on the sea side
of King street, but which will also
push the construction of a boulevard,
which will be the pride of this city.
The extension of the Rapid Transit
Company's lines has shown that within
the next two years all the principal
streets of the town will be utilized for
street car tracks. This is essential
to accommodate the traffic In the city.
Outside the city proper there are several
good drives, but none within the
It will be remembered that nearly
one year ago Colonel-J. M. Stone of
California came here and in company
with Captain N. W.'Griswold, made a
proposition to the government for
dredging part of the bay and using
the dredgings in filling in some of the
low lands lying between King street
and the- Beach road. Their proposi
tion was not accepted, which was just
as well, as later investigations proved
that the.cost of.dred.ging would baton,
great for profit On account of the coral
rock. Colonel Stone returned home,
but Captain Griswold did not give up,
believing that several hundred acres
of marsh and tie land could be made
very valuable at comparatively small
cosL Finally he arranged to secure
the necessary land and rock for the
filling from the upper part of Manoa
Valley, from which place it could be
conducted to the low lands by gravity.
With this as a basis to work on.
Captain Griswold sounded the property
owners .about filling their land
and opening up a new tractfor settlement
W. C. Achi. Cecil Brown,
Frank Hustace.- Bruce Cartwright.
the Hawaiian Hotel Company and
others were only too anxious to enter
into a contract for the filling in of
their low land provided it could be
done at a cost such as Captain Griswold
named. With this basis to work
on, Captain Griswold then broached
the subject of the owners donating
sufficient land for a boulevard one
hundred feet wide. Every property
owner from the site of the old Stock
Yards Stables to the junction of the
Diamond Head road, but one, agreed
to donate the necessary land for the
boulevard. It was recognized by all
that such a driveway would add immeasurably
to the value of their land
and they were willing to donate that
much for the benefits which would accrue.
The company which will be incorporated
in a few days will enter into
contracts to fill all land oelonging to
those who donate the right of way for
the boulevard for less than one-half
the sum any one else has ever offered
to fill It for. Captain Griswold says
that instead of costing those who donate
land for the boulevard ninety
cents a square yard for filing it will
only cost them about one-third that
araonnL Anv property holder along
the route of th. proposed boulevard
who refuses to donate the right of to-will
be denied this cheap rate for fill
ing his land.
According to promises of property
owners that have already been made,
there will be no difficulty in starting
the boulevard at South street, about
where the Stock Yards Stables stood,
and carrving it nearly on a straight
line to the southpact till ft joins the
Diamond Head Boulevard near Cecil
Brown's place at Kapiolani Park, a
distance of nearly four miles. The
boulevard is to be 100 feet wide, with
a bicycle path twenty feet wide In the
center, bordered bv two rows of trees,
drlvewavs thlrtv feet in x width on
each side of the bicvele path and sidewalks
ten feet wide on each outside
border. Rows of trees are to be planted
on the outside of each driveway so
that In a few years the entire boulevard
will be nicely shaded. Street
cars- are never to be alowed "upon tho
boulevard, as it is to bo given oyer
entirely as a pleasure drive.
For some days Captain Griswold
ha ben quletlv securing annual
towards the building and
maintenance of the boulevard. It belne
desired to secure pledges for $50,000
in this wav. It is believed that there
are two thonsand people in Honolulu
who wHI $25 each to be paid
In monthlr installments of on dothr
per month, thus covering a period of
store thaa two years for the payment
of the ?25. II $50.J In pledged In
this way, assurances have been given
of subscriptions by business men of
an additional J5Q.&0O, and then the
next Legislature will be asked to appropriate
another 450,000. making
1150,000 in all, which is considered
ample to build a magnificent Irive-way
for the entire lesgth of the
and pay fox all the tree planting.
A suggestion has already teen mads
to call it McKinley Boulevard and to
ask the Monument Committee to erect
a statue of McKinley at the entrance
to the driveway.
TT,t this is a big proposition and
may scund ephemeral to some is true
but that It is founded upon a solid
basi3 is also true and It will be carried
out to a successful termination.
The company that will file its articles
of incorporation this week hss already
arranged with B. F. Dillingham for
