SEP. EMBER ; iS4
Last Tuesday was the fifteenth buthday of
Miss Irene li, the winsome ward of Chancellor
Judd, who gave a luau In honor nf Ihe occasion,
seconded by several of the surviving retainers
ol Judge II, whose proudest happiness is to
acknowledge their feallty to their dead chiefs
child. Apart from an) feeling of lo)at(y,
moreover, Ihere is no other duty to which )our
true Hawaiian comn with rwniucli alaerit) as
to the preparationand enjo)ment of n luau, So
when the chancclloi told those of his native
fiiemls on whom his office of guardian gase
him Ihe right lo call that'he would like their
assistance at n luau for Miss Irene, the replies
were as promptly spontaneous as ihe yeses of
Ihe asirage office seekerAnd when Tuesday
morning came, their armed with it at Judge
Jitdd's tvsiltr stout kanakas anl two native wo
men with tithes for their chkfess. Pigs and
chickens from Wnlplo and the twa sicmage,
mullet and awa from Ihe Walpio ponds of I"o
and Hanalnai sweet potatoes from Kalihi I li
leaves and malic from the Manni mountains j
crabs from Kualoa. And with the working
fourteen came others to look on and gossip and
shore the feast, I.ong before noon Ihey had
made ready the oven and prcpircd the exlra
holes, and when the guests diposed themselves
around the luau mats, at four of the
nflcrnoon clock, Ihere was set before
them sifh a feast as Sancho I'mia might
have dreamed alioutfor man) a )ear
afirr enjoying it. .There had been cooked six
piglings and around each a number of chickens
wrapped In li leaves and outside of those sweet
potatoes. 1 here was fish Itwalu and fish raw
crabs boiled and crab? rawj squid rolled ami
kneaded and bruised In salt and lmilcd for
three hours) pol and bread for the staples and
llmu kohu and very Spanish looking leeks for
relishes. Later, "when sonievv hat clo)ed the
edce of apiietite," came salads and cakes and
coffee and the beverage thil cheers most tern
petately. Withat It was a pretty scene "a
scene pr'igious prell), by my faith." A
long and ample breadth of canvas lnd been
stretched under the added shade of trees, and
strip of carps.! covered with ti leaves were
spread upon the ground beneath. All Miss
Irene's schoolmates, her teachers and Judge
Judd s immediate neighbors, )oung and old,
were invited and came lo the number of
nearly two hundred. Lcis of flowers or leis
of inaile were worn by man) of the guesls,
and bright light, warm-weather dresses were
the rule. Judge JinKl's convivial garb was the
most picturesque on the grounds. Among
those present were many to whom that luau
was the first the) had ever attended. They
cculd not have had a better introduction. One
of the prettiest events of the afternoon occurred
before tinny nf the guests arrived. Irene,
who attends Oahu College and lives in
the family of Rev. C. M. II)de, reached
Judge Judd's about 3 I'.M. When she
arrived the retainers (na kauwa) came forward
in a laxly and kissed her hand in token of
their fealty a touching: instance of the sur
vival of a feeling nearl) extinct. .Many pure
blooded Ilawaiians ard many others of mixed
parentage were present, mingling in perfect
friendliness with their white neighWs it
gratifying evidence that Mr. Gibson's cowardly
eftorl to array the brown skin against the
white is not yet entirely successful.
itt uimisom, Ihf llrnuyrU!,
Man) readers of the Press will recall Ihe
fact that Mrs. Ilampson, a celebrated l'ngtish
Kvangellsl, spent three weeks in Honolulu,
last Ma), and that time accepted an invitation
to return and hold evangelistic services here.
News his been received that she will atiive
by the November steamer from the Colonies.
The exact date of beginning her work in
Honolulu will not be fixed until after her ar
rival, but it will undoiihtedl) lie early in I)e
ecmber. Arrangements are ahead) being
perfected lo thoroughly prepare the way for a
large, powerful and iicpful work. When last
heard from Mrs. Ilampson was at work In
Sandhurst, where her services, as in every
other cil) where she has worked, drew im
mense ciowds. The Koyal Princess Theatre,
with a scaling capacity of a, ooo, was entirely
(inadequate lo accommodate those desiring to
hear this gifted worker.
The llcndigo (Sandhurst) Advertiser of Au
list joth sa)s : "Ihe mid-day prayer meeting
conducted by .Mrs. Ilampson, the lady evan
gehst, was agstn largely attended n the Ro)al
Princess Thcatte yesterda). The dress circle,
stalls and pit were crowded. In Ihe evening
Mrs. Ilampson conducted her usual evangel
istic meeting, l'or lully an hour anil a half
before Ihe commencement of the service the
building was '.crowded to its utmost capacity,
large numbers being unable to obtain nd
mitlancc. In llvllaral Jhe immense Alfred
Hall was not large enough to hold the audi
enecs and over four meetings were held." The
Dally Courier of Mallarat says s "The re
markable success which is attending Mrs.
llampson's services in the Alfred Hall and
elsewhere contains a great deal that is exceed
ingly suggestive. The lady herself has a mod
amiable appearance, and is a very excellent
preacher; and, .therefore, it is not perhaps
remarkable that numbers of persons should
dock to hear her. Given a cood address, a
well-balanced and Intelligent mind, a fine flow
of sound English, repleje with argumentative
force, a,nd a desire to see and heir such a per
son, especially if a lad), is pretty sure to be
widespread. There is nothing, therefore,
remarkable in Mrs. Ilampson drawing 'big
houses,' as the saying goes, as there is ever) -thing
in and aliout her to make her sermons
interesting and attractive. Hut there is some
thing noteworthy in the fact tint she wins a
very large number of ' pepitcnts' without ap
parently the slightest effort beyond what an)
modest and earnest person would employ on
thesuhjectupon which she discourses. In other
woids, there is a total alienee of sensational
ism from her sermons, which preached abl),
of course, but without gestures, or the least
approach to tall or loud speaking. Vet it is
doubtful Vvhether an) person ever achieved
greater success in convincing audience after
audience of the truths of revealed religion
than Mrs. Ilampson accomplishes. IZvi
dence of this is furnished in the open hall; but
it is greatl) intensified Ivv what occurs in the
'inquiry-room,' when the service is over."

the mellow light from the many scorej of Ian

moonlight. There could have been 0 more
perfect afternoon for the luiu, nor a mote per'

A representative of the Guide called on C.

as to the truth of th: leading article in the

lo go into any newspaper controversy, parti
cularly with thei Advertiser, as he had once
before been maligned by the Advertiser, had
tried in a gentlemanly way to set himself right
and had received only defamation for his piins.
He was willing to say, however, that the
Advertiser's statement wis one of those hilf
truths, half lies which pre worse tlnn outright
lies, because less directly answerable. The
article is a cunningly-devised scheme to Injure
the firm of C. Brewer fi. Co., by placing in an
altogether false light a written application for
the nrni to he allowed to bring in two hundred
Chiresc by the bark Ceylon. This application
was made in furthurancr of the petitions of
planters who needed labor, and wanted
Chinese to fill the places of those who hid
left ; and was callc-U for by Minister Gulick

for the application, having conversed at lengtl

enjoyed by the grocers of the day ; and soon
built up a lucrative business. In 1 858 Mr
May relumed to England, leaving the business
to Mr. Savidge. He returned in 1868 and

mated the Spreckels Gibson scheme to bring in

lists in Mr. Gibsons organ and in other papers
The first couvscration that any representative
ol Ihe Guide had with Mr. Jones was after the

The Advertiser does not controvert Mr. Jones
statement that Minister Qulick knew the reason
for the request to bring in Chinese. Inciden
