The time lins evidently comn when
the work of Cliidtinuizing the Chinese
population of these Islands must claim
more thnuther hito, tho attention, ac
tivity, sympathy nnd gonorosity of
Christ's iicoplc. Wlint ofForti have

hitherto mainly tentative nnd desul

Chinamen on thso islands, at first, only
struggling individuals scattered hero
In 1852, tho first Chinrio lnhoreis,
98 in number, woic imported into tho
iiuwniinn Islands, by tho bark Thetis,
from Atnoy, unived August 2. The
continued diminution ol ( tho ntitivo
population, and their innptitudo for the
stniin of continuous toil, as well as the
need of a largo number of laboiers for
larger eutorprBcs than had been pre
viously undeit.iken, were tho continu
ing lcasons then as now, for opening
thoso Islands to the countless millions
of Chinese. The Census Tables show
the suddenness and iccentuess of the
inci ease of that element of our popu
lation. Hinco tho last census in 1878, tho
Custom House Tables show that in
1870. 8.4'I3 Chinese wero added, in
1880, 1,877, in 1881, (9 mos.) 1,518,
in 3jciusG,888. Thopiesout number
of Chinese, according to the figures, is
12,804, out of a total (estimated) pop
ulation of G6,89o. According to the
census of 1878, there were, on Oahu
2,216 Chinese; Hawaii, 1,098; Maui,
1,990; Kauai, 859; Molokai and Lauai,

8, 1879, 3o joining by letter, and G by

1881). Stimulated by a generous do
nation from J. T. Watcrliouse, Esq.,
the woik of building a chapel was un
dertaken, and a lot purchased. A beau
tiful and commodious house of worship
was dedicated Jan 2, 1881. It is GO

rooms below, and a largo audience

812,250, the lot alone costing 554,700,

and other expenses $1,000. Of this
amount, $5,500 has been paid by the

A Chinese Young Men's Christian

duly churtoied, according to law, Nov.
13, 1877, under the name of ' Yqu

It is to theso meetings that they bring

in tho support of Sit Moon, but mils
and stimulates tho feeble bands of

One of theso early converts united with
tho Fort Street Church. Ten united
with the Uethcl Church; for from the
very first Hev. Dr. Damon has taken
special interest in tho social and reli
gious welfare of tho Chinese. A
school for teaching English was open
ed nt tho Bethel under Mr. Duns
combe, from 1870 to 1880, 2 18 Chinese
received instruction in English three
evenings in every week. Tho board
of Education, on application from Dr.
Damon, granted in 18G9, $200 nnnual-
Iv, 111 aid of the school, increased ill
1879, to 300. In January, 1880, tho
Hoard of Education engaged Miss Pay
sou as 1111 English teacher in tho Chi
neso School, held in tho lower room of
tho Chinese Church. The school was
begun in September, 1880, by the
Chiiicso Y. M. C. A., who sent to Cal
ifornia for a Chinese teacher. He was
not able to apeak English, but taught
the children to read "Chinese. He re
tuied to China, and another teacher

There are now 89. Miss Payson was
formerly connected with thu Mission
of the A. ii. C. F. M. in Foochow,
China. She came to Honolulu, through
the kind agency of tho American
Board, who recommended her to usaud
paid her travelling expenses. Miss
Paysou has also an evening class of
Chinese young men studying English.
The Honolulu Y. M. C. A., by ad
vice of Hev. Dr. Damon, took up Evan
gelistic work among the Chinese ns a
department of their Christian work.
A Sunday school for teaching English,
and so aifoidiug an opportunity to
teach Christian truths, was opened in
the vestry of Foil Street Church, the
first Sunday afternoon in January,
1872. J. 13. Atherton Ebq., acted as
Snperintcudant, assisted by a corps of
volunteer teachers, one for every two
or three scholars. It was suspended
during a greater part of 1880, but was
resumed airaiu in the Chinese Church
in January. 1881. On tho return of
Mr. Fiuuk Damon to the Islands, he
has interested himself in this enter
prise and secured additional teachers
as well as a large increase in the num
ber of scholars? It was through the
efforts of the Y. M. 0. A. that Sit
Moon was secured to act as colporteur
amoiiK the Chinese. Ho came from
California at the recommendation of
Dr. A. W. Loomis, and began his la
bors May 16, 1875. When Sit Moon
icturncd to China in 1878, to bring
back a wife, his place was supplied by
Sat Fan, who had been several years
under the instruction of the Khcnish
Mission, but had come to the Islands
the Y. M. C. A. Sat Tan was sent to
Maui, to act as colporteur on thut Is
and; Wong E was sent to Hilo; und
llo Ah Put to Kauai. None of these are
now in this service, for good and suf
ficient reasons that need not now be
detailed. Ho Ah Pui atpieseiit is en

For Honolulu and Oahu, und is prov
ing also an excellent teacher of Chi
nese (Canton dialect) for Mr. Damon.
The diiect paiticip.ition of the Ha
waiian Board in the work of Chinese
Evuugclizatioo has been mainly in up
propnuting'from time to time special
grants in aid, as individuals, or the Y.
M. C. A. made application tor such aid
from tho Bo.ml. In 18G9 the Board
made u grant of $200 to tho school es
tablished by S. P. Ahioug, and after
wards conducted by Mr. Duuscouibo.
For nearly two years, 1869, 1870, the
Board employed S. P. Aheong, or
Ahiona, as a colporteur among the
Chinese on tho various Islands, paying
him uii annual salary of $800. Ho was
tiroviously u storekeeper in Lahaiua,
nit had, under tho teaching of Miss
Mary Uroen, renounced heathenism,
und taken up Chiistiau life und duty.
