worth the having. The five pictures which
hive been on view at fycari'x during the past
few da)s, consist of a view of Kaalaca l!a), a
bullock cart slanding In Ihe foreground, and
part of Kaala mountain showing through
a translucent veil of purple lure, across the
crescent. The picture is one nf the most
effective tiilf nf Island scenery that Mr. Slrong
has )ct produced. As lo Its local failhfulnex,
the writer miy not vouch. Fortunately, .art
doci not need to conform lo llie literal accuracy
of the camera, or to Ihosc hard and fist con
ditions of truth which circumscribe the
conscientious scribbler, Al an) rale It is a

Among the man) pleasant gatherings inci
dent to this "Merr) Christm-u" time was one
which was liehl on Monda) evening at W'ooel
.awn, Ihe residence of Mr. It. F. Dillingham.
It was quite strictl) a neighborhood affair, ami
consiilcring the bievil) of time devoted toils
preparation and us informal naliire, a large
amount of fun and good time was realized.
The neighliors sent in Ihe gifts that had betn
priparid for their own families, and entrusted
them lo the ladies in charge of the evening.
At half past six, about lifty being present, the
entertainment was opened bj the smging of a
Christmas carol, by sweet childish soices.
Then followed several spirited charades, acted
b) the children, the reading of a legend ; a
vocal trio; .a most novel apparition, in the
form of a Syrian dwarf, who proved himself
very chalt) and complaisant as well; a dia
logue between two little girls, who stuck a
feather duster in a cane seatid chair and pio
cecded lo trim it with tinsel and hits of gold
and silver piper for a Christmas tree, as a
" sprisc to mamma," and last a recitation b) a
small 1k) concerning " SI) Santa Clans."
Scarce!) had he taken his seal ere the folding
eloors were opened and ever) one saw not
the expected tiec, but a darkened room, at
the farther siele of which showed an old
fashioned chimnc) fireplace. There il was
solid brick, soot, mantelpiece, well hung with
stockings and all aglow with a soft warm
light. As a tableau il was a success, anil those
present who were used lo firesides long .ago
felt an unusual tug at their heartstrings.
Afler a few moments of quiet cnjo)incnt there
was heard llie cracking of whips, n stamping
and shouting, and with much bustle, old Santa
Claus dropped down into the room with the
traditional pack uin his shoulders. After
complaining of his experiences coming down
Ilaleakala, with ihe accidents tint befel him
as he alighted on Oaliu, and distributing a
small Hirlinn of his gifts lie called for assis
tants to take charge of all lie woulj leave
behind, as he had jet Japan and China to
visit, and gathering himself together, he
vanished up the chimnc) as nimbly as he
came. An hour or two of delicious surprises,
livel) jokes and heaily goexl times followed.

There was a merry Christmas gathering of

Tuesela) evening. Miss Urecse, who Is so in
elcfitlgable in her laliors for both old and

spend the evening with tlicin and empty his
capacious pocktts for the benefit of her joung
fiiends. As usual, wherever his benevolent
face apjK-ars, he formed the principle attrac
lion of the evening. He eaused much men!
nieiit and delight to llie) oil tig folks bj bestow
ing sunda) gifts upon the astonished .hostess
herself and from behind Ihe mysterious grim
cuttain he presented her-with a handsome
lounge, two tables, an easv chair, a mirror,
rug, and some minor articles, the delight of
all present found vent in hearty and pro
longed apphiisc. 'Ihe members of Miss
llreesc's bible class, llie Smith's Ijne pra)er

and other friemls, had taken this oppoilunity
of expressing their loving appreciation of hir

Some are bom great, others have greatness
thrust upon them, and when by virtue of
(somewhat Irregular) correspondence with )our
esteemed Journal, I am favored with an especial
invitation lo write up a first class show, the
honor becomes of a kind worth mentioning. I
received, some da)s ago, a nicel) worded invi
lalion enclosing reserved scats to witness the
anorama, King Kalakaua's Kingdom, and
lo give my opinion of the work of Mr. illiatn
Coulter, at Ibid win's Theatre.
I he advertisement reads llnl "Ml oiiils of
Interest in your kingdom are presented," which
is artisllchccnse; for amongthc prominent places
not shown are many having local interest for
old residents, while those described arc so
deoiiUor) that n chance visitor would gam but
vague impressions of the beauties, peculiarities
.and grandeur of the country at large.
Commencing al San Francisco lnilior with
the sli-amcr Mariposa sailing out, the first
thing to find fault Willi is the abnormal length
of the vessel which, b) comparison wilhjidja
cent objects, appears .alniut .a thousand ftct
long, but as she is about starting for a long
vo) ige which shortens verccptihl) from fre
quent travel, the sexscl may be similail) af
fcclcd. Hut this is mere h)perciilicism lor the
picture Ins fine color and is otherwise most
truthful. 'I he approach to Oaliu is lifelike,
but the first appearance of Honolulu is ver)
faintly shown, which Is probably accounted for
Ii) the impression the ground swell had iqKin
the mint's vowcrs of concinlratiel observation,
After he reached the shore he trod 011 firmer
ground, so lo speak.
King Kalakaua's palace Is good. The
corner of Fort anil Queen streets, showing
Oceanic Steamship Office and Wildcr's store,
the latter name spelled wrong and the building
standing at an apparent incline, arc decidedly
bad. A line view of Oaliu prison completes
all the public is favored with of Honolulu
excepting the well-known view of Kapena fill,
copied from the well-worn photograph taken
h) Hob Dickson )cars ago, showing a native
upon the cliff in an ungraceful position and
ugl) bathing costume ; the picture lieing
narrowed b) drawn curtains so as lo hide the
jagged rocks on the left anil the beautiful
greensward where the jo)ous )oulh in )ears
gone b) have danced and jelled, told stories
and swappcil lies before making the delightful
plunge mlo the water beneath.
Wh) might not the artist have stood on
School strict biidge or the bridge on Nuuanu
below Jiidd street and have sketched the
streams null their pools shaded by rinal palms,
their picturesque rocks shaded by ferns .and
covered b) native washerwomen, a rainlniwir
two, or a mountain rainstorm, or any of these
simple, ever) da) sights, which give a greater
interest to jour place and surroundings? In
hen, we arc given two ver) stupid views of
Wnikiki from the two extreme points, the
sand levoking as )cllov as on the shore of our
own Alameda, and ihe great bathing place, so
entlmsiasticalt) described heretofore to our
friends, appears an) thing but the delightful
sjiot imagined, the onl) satisfactor) sight being
the water, which is as ' blue as blue."
From Oihu with its ehsapiomting reprc-
sentatiou we pass not riluclaiitl) lo the bal
ance of the panorama which is very interesting,
anil shows decided talent. Hanalii valley or
Kauai is a generous painting and receivnl
applause from the- .audience, the description of
the beautiful island making up for Ihe absence
of an) other view of this least familiar of Ihe
From Kauai we passcel rapid!) lo Maui,
showing Wailuku in the- distance, and then a
special picture of Wailuku falls, wherein llie
artist had reveille! in the wealth of tioplcal
milage, giving a most beautiful and truthful
rendering of the ferns, water and falls, so we
were Incoming quite complacent over our
views as at last coinciding witli our enthus
iastic descriptions lo our frienels of island
scencr). Ilaleakala, showing extent of crater
and t'cneial bigness, in two ieeone exterior
the other interior, brought many exclamations
of surprise at the wondirful area, Spreckels'
Mill and Us surroundings finished up Maui.
Kealakckua Ibj from llie- cliff, anil showing
the Cook Monument and palm trees was ver)
prclt), but a view from the water showing the
chlTwould have given additional interest to
the lecturer's stor) of Cook's death,
Kalawao, when announced, sent a shudder
through the audience, which sensation passcel
awa) al the sight of such a beautiful landscape,
high mountains with the cosy village at the
base, the native church so familiar in all parts
of the islands, llie water be) one!, green fields
111 the foreground, all making a picture giving
hut little idea of the sulfcring and miser) so

the subject full justice,
II1I0 ba) with moonlight cficct was very
pretl) and woull have worked heller another
night, the moonlight was too bright for the
town it was Hilo bay minus 1 1 do. The lava
views came next and were ver) life-like, the
cascade of lav a being so natural as to make
one almost realize the heat mid steam as the
molten rocks rolled into the sea. A choice
bit of the road to Kiluaia was beautiful ami
was a companion picture to Wailuku falls,
Halemanniau, b) night was grand and Im
prcssivc, ver) life like, gory In color, but b)
far the best views of this subject Jet exhibited.
So ended the panorama in a blare of glor)
a succession of life like, faithfull) painted
pictures found fault with by Ihe writer only
because so much which might have liecn added
was lift nut ami because it contained some
views which might well have been left out.
Mr, J. A. Cone, formerly of Wailuku, was
the, licturer, ami In Ihe estimation of all was
very eiiterlalnti.g, giving items of interest in a
very pleasing conversational st)le without
flourish or elalHiration, the papers generally
complimenting the lecture quite as much as

A large audience filled dress circle, orchestra

nesday evening, to sec Ilcrr Ihndmann ph)
in "Hamlet," supported b) Miss Ionise Iltau
elct, Mr. Charles LobUll, Mrs. Leah Ilastle
and Mr. I). M. Crowlc). Asgivikn, the pin)
had to be cruelly cut, and was compressed
inlo three acts. Under the circumstances ihe
success attaincel merits the fullest praise.
Ilcrr llandmann is an artist of pronounced
orlginalil). lie is recognized abroad as one
of the closest modem students of the pla),
and, while his llamlcl is unmistakably his
own, he knows the traditions that cluster like
cobwebs alwul llie subtle charactir he imper
sonates ns he knows the well worn lines of his
part. Miss llcaudet is a former San Francisco
favorite, who won the hearts of the principil
Australian towns during her recent trip. Her
Ophelia is charmingly effective. Hir Quien,
in the scene where Hamlet upbraids her, is
admirable. Mr Lobhcll who was Horatio,
Poloniiis, 'I he King and Ihe voice Ion most
ridiculous dumb ghost is evidently a pains
taking and experienced actor. Mrs. Hastic
personated The Quien in Ihe court scene ver)
creditably. 'Ihe farce of "A Happ) Pair"
in which Herr llandmann was Sir. Hone) ton
and MissUcaildet Mrs. I lone) ton showed the
corned) quaht) of the Mil) to excellent advan
tage. Her singing of Pretty as a Picture
called forth what an old stager describes .is
"the most enthusiastic encore ever given in
Musical Hall." It seems a rather pointed
reflection upon the community's taste that it
should have been called pirlh b) so cheap ?

Mr. II. J. Xoltc is nothing if not enterpris
ing. He caters to Ihe noon tide appetite of
half of "ddwn town, six days out of seven.
He keeps a giHul house, makes money, earns
il, and deserves to earn it. He has recently
opened a house at Kapiolani Park. '1 he
building Ins been alrcaely elescribed in these
columns. It is a handsome structure and was
limit hy Mr. George Lucas. The "casino,"
Oox 30, with ceilings 20 feet high and a 12
feet veranda in front, is a noble room mid
might splendidly accomoehte moonlight danc
ing or suppir ixartics. It was piiereil by Mr.
Max Kohm. Last Tuesday some two hun
dred guests of the occasion partook of Host
Nolte's bountiful hospitality. He gave them
an appetizing spread and the expressions of
approval were general and pronounced. The
ochcstron which once made Fort street musi
cal is now in the new place. It play eel several
of its best tunes in lis best style last Tuesday.
If Mr. Nolle maintains his present system of
selling no intoxicating drinks whatever, he
will deserve the patronage of the comniiiiiily.
A temperance resort of the kind ought to be
supporteel by temperance people.

Owing to the peculiarity of the Chinese
characters, each of whir h represents a wotd,
not a letter, as in our Western tongue, the
Danish Telegraph Company (the Great
Northern) working the Chinese news lines,
have, adopt eel the following divlcc; There
are from five lo six thousand characters or
words In ordinary Chinese language, ami the
company las provided a wooden block or tjpe
for each of these. On one end of the block
the charactir is cut or stamped out, and on the
other cud is a nundwr rcpii-sentlng Ihe char,
acter. Theclcrk leceives a message In numbers
and takes the block of each uuinder transmitt
ed and stamps with the opposite end (he proper
Chinese charactir on the message form. Thus
a Chinese message sent In figures is translated
Into Chinese cluiactcrs again and sent toils
destination. T he sending cleik, of course, re
quires lo know the numerical equivalent of the
characters or have ihim found for him. - ltn
