Mrs. John Bidwell, Now Visitor In Honolulu
Interested In Club-Endeavor Along Sincere
LinesComments on Honolulu
One of California's best-known and
best-loved women, Mrs. JoLn BMweil,
oi Chico, is visiting Honolulu now,
and an hour spent with her recently
shows why she is so univertally loved
and why she is one of the Golden
State's grarious "grande dames."
v Her one thought seems to be to aid
. others and the greater part of her
time is spent helping those who are in
need of help. There, are many youna
women, who today Are very grateful
for the benefits, spiritual, moral, and
financial, that they have received at
.the bands of this generous little lady.
Do not think for a moment tnat Mrs.
BIdwell herself told me of the thing
which she has done, for -she Is very
. . modest and reticent about telling her
" part In this sort of .work. ,
V Had I not been told that Mrs. flin
: welt - was kind and lovely I aSouT
never .have had the courage to go up
, to her room . In. tfce ,MAana, when .she
accorded me this interview. Some or
the lady tourists who are Interviewed
here contie downstairs and In abrnpt
' tones ark the reporter wh?t he or she
. nants and, then in a few short tearen-'
'rret answers their questions; Mrs. Bid-:
well however, proved to b& an exrep
tlon. . She Is a little lady with snow
'"O white hair, deep ray eves and the
s softest of white sikn and her manners
are so gentle thnt no one could pos
sibly be afrajd of her.
; Mrs. Didwe'l was very pleasel with
- Honolulu and vhen asked: wMt she
"thought of the nivie nhe raid "H,v-
lulu is the TPrst .beautiful, and .restful
resort that I have ever visited nd T
" have vlrlted a rood many of them ir
roytrav6lc. She was much imnrs
ed.as are all vlfitors to the. Iflr.?s
with - the volcano' in its wonderful
beauty. Our trirt to HawMlV said
. . she, ."was delightful,1 and7 the drive
. through tthe forest of- ferns was far
robre beautiful than , our imagination
V bad pictured.' 'We have not "had one
disappointment during out visit to tb
v uplands and our. trip has been one s3c.
r resdon Of delightful surprises.' Mrs
A Bidwell and her party like all" other
'i "tourirts went around the Island and l
- speaking of it -she said ""our trip
around the Island was, a great k sur
. prise, in what has been done by Gd
and man, in the- wonderful scenery

Mrs, BIdwell is greatly. Interested
In . all - mission, "work, and 'the little

y.Ttfter she had found where some of the
' missions were, was spent .visiting
them. I t ought In vain for published

California Woman i
While riding in the car one day she
at last found a lady who was aMe to
give her some Information as to the
whereabout of the settlements and
the was greatly impressed with them.
"Mrs. Bestarlck commented to me on
the rarity of tourists evincing any in
terest in the mission work in Hono
lulu" said Mrs. BIdwell. "Th s ab
sence of Interest, I believe, Is due to
the lack of publicity given the work
here in public notices of which the
tourists might avail themselves." As
fctated above Mrs. BIdwell spent the.
greater part of her time here vlsiUns
the missions,' and it was with regret
she said, that she was unable to see
all 6f the homes for the homeless. "J
an impressed1 with the mfssionrv
spirit of- the people, here, as reported
at the various missions. I was sur
prised at the magnitude of the EnHco? '
nV tyork here and the maenificent
buildlngs. I am particularly impress
ed with Palama Settlement whlh
seems to embody the true spirit of our '
Lord- in the fellowship Inculcated
among the different races participat
ing in ' the benefits of that mission,
given without .charge,
v "The work at this mission has been
gratlfyinc: to not only the tourists who
have vlt ited It t uL also to the resi
dents of Honolulu who have watched
It ; grow. Although Mrs. BIdwell did
not meet Mr. Rath she said that she
cculd see that Loth he, and his assist
ants ' had accomplished roueh. - As is
the case .with all who have teen those
who receive benefits at. Palama, the
fellowship that eIrts among the chil
dren and. grown uds.' Mrs. Bid-,
well recognized the Importance of the
work and he efficiency with' whtrfj It
Is carried out , It is quite natural that
such should be the case with one w'jo
comes from a-community not so cos
mopolitan as our own, ' .

Mrs. BIdwell also visited K"anie
