NEW CASTLE HALL
O? Aloha Lodge, K.ol P.ot Wailuku
There is being erected, and now
nearing completion, the largest, most
elegant and most expensive building
in Wailuku. This is the Castle Hall
of Aloha Lodge, No. 3, K. of P., on
Mill street near the Wailuku Depot.
Application was made to the ,H.

The building is (14 ft. front on Mill
street, by 44 ft. in depth, and is two
stories in height. The lower floor is
entirely occupied by three large
stores with plate glass fronts. The
Castle Hall, on the upper floor is ti2
ft. long by 3(J ft. wide. There are
also on the upper floor separate
dressing rooms for ladies and gentle
men, and severalprivate rooms for
the exclusive use of the members of
Aloha Lodge. By an ingenious ar
rangement, a stage of 12 ft. by 13 ft.
can be put in or removed at pleasure,
thus adapting the hall for the con
venience of theatrical and concert
purposes. Tho base-boards of the
.iall are of stained cedar, and the
sides aud ceiling are nor'west, nat
ural finish. Five large and handsome
ly carven circular ventilators are
placed in the ceiling, and the color
efftcls are the adopted colors of

windows of plate glass open from the
front side of the hall on to a massive
upper balcony which is supported by
live circular pillars. The other side
and the ends of the hall are well sup
plied with large windows, and the

ly be used. A handsome stairway
leads to the upper floor, at the mail-
ka end of the building In front of the
stores on the lower floor is a large,

Two of the stores have already
been rented and the other will doubt
less be taken by the time the building
is finished, which will be early in
March. The Lodge hope to hold their
first meeting in the new hall in April.
The cost of the building, when com
pleted will be between seven and
eight thousand dollars, and it is be
lieved that tho rental of the stores,
and of the hall for dancing and thea
trical purposes will pay a fair inter
est on the investment.
Mr. E. B. Ca rley, who by the way,
is a skilled cabinet-maker, is mak
ing a set of handsomely ornamented
koa wood altars and stands for the
new hall, which will match in design
and excellence of workmanship the
general design and finish of the hall
The hall is periecty adapted in all
its details for the accommodation of
large crowds of people, being light,
airy and roomy, and entirely seclud
ed. Application can be made to Mr,
David L. Meyer, to rent the remain
ing store, and also to secure the use
of the Hall for public purposes.
