Christmas' tide on the Islands seems
oddlj unlike Christmas to those who
have been accustomed to greet the
holidays back Tiotne in the midst ol
snow storms or stinging frost u..d
roaring fires. Yet on second thought
the islands have the best of it, for or.r
Christians climate here is much more
like that of IV1 hlehem where the
shepherds were watching their flock
out doors in tho open air one brilliant
star-lit night, when the angels camt
to them aid told them that the baby
C'liris was bornv, 'Just such a night
was it lusi Wednesday night when
the pupils of Mrs. Austin's school met
at the aikiipu Church to celebrate
their Christmas festival. A lehua
'tree from fufiupon the mountain side
had been, td'ouuht down aud served
excellently the purpose of a Christ
mas-tree, its filmy leaves and featl
ery sprays harmonizing beautifully
with the backgrouud of green wav
nig bamboos and palms. The Christ
mas I ree wus brillian ily and beautiful
ly .ighted with tiny wax candles, aiid
li oin floor to ceiling its branches wen
literally loaded with presents, cand.
buijs, waving ribbons and ornaments.
At seven o'clock the auditorium ol
i he church wus packi d full with n
standing room left. At a signal f rou
Mrs. Austin, the screen curtain wm
-went aside revelling the beautifu
Christinas tree with its splendor ol
lights, sparkling ornaments a n
wealth of presentsand yood things foi
the little ones. Then followed a pro
tM'ain of song, choruses, recitations
and concert recitals V'l Ac h won
nearly aud generous' applause, an
was alnte creditable to the childre
and their teachers. Finally a cho
rus of tiny lads inarched on to the
tage, hats in Tiaiul, and rattled oil
jolly song, accompanying the chorus
wii h waving hats, and announcing tin
immediate arrival of Santa Clans. In
the midst of thei" fast chorus, a long
Irawn note from 6. Tairy horn attrac
ted all eyes aloft aud sure enouyl
t here stood old San ta himself, his eyes
shining with fun, aud his plump form
loaded with just the veiy presents
vhich make children the happiest
And it wus real truly Santa Claus
himself and uot somebody else. The
News man is sure of this, for he askeo
several little ch'ldrrr sitting around
him, and they all told him that it was
tne sure enough Santa Claus, and s
the News feels sure it was.v j;-e ,;
The Wlowing merry half hour was
devoted to distributing presents, aiid
nobody was5 forgotten, even Mayor
Thomas Cummings of Waikapu him
self receiving a popcoriv ball. Mrs,
Ella Austin, the teacher must have
been a very," very good little girl, for
she received armsful and armsful of
presents from tho tree. At 8:30,
Santa Claus bade the little ones good
bve, sprang to the roof where hi
reindeer, team awaited him, shook the
reins and the next moment, with the
jinalingof bells and the rattling of
t iny hocf", was on to be gone till next
The True Version.
, Last week. the News inadvertedly
stated that,, Judge Katua's . old black
horse was artested by Officer Clem
Crowell bp ,the charge of having left
theJudge untied on the street. .
Further investigation proves how
ever that the News did not get the
matter straight, and the true ver
sion is said to be that the Judge's old
carriage horse arrested the Judge
for having left Officer Crowell untied
on the street. The .News Is glad to
make this correction, and would leav
the matter at that, were it not for
serious complications, which have
since arisen. It seems that in Judge
Knlua's carriage which was taken to
the dungeon and held as hostage were
two fine hens which Jailor David
Crowell humanely fed and watered
The hens, finding confinement irli
some, made nests in the buggy laid
them full of eggs and began sittiag
to relieve the tedium.
Then trouble of a nature so serious
as to palt the ineffectual fires of. the
Russo-Japanise inbroglio began, as
to who shall own the own the chick
ens wheu they are hatched. Judge
Kalua naturally claims them, but
Jailor Crowell bas a laborer s lien on
both prospective broods. In the
meantime the Court has begun quo
warranto proceedings to determine
whether or not they shall be treated
as costs in the case, and attorney
for the prosecution and defense re
spectively claim them as fees. The
case will probably go to the Supreme
Court as soon as the County act is
disposed of, and, in the meantime
every lawyer in Wailuku is carryiug
his had. in an ice-pack, to cool h
brains, ..superheated by wresUiny
with the .knotty, .proposition. i&9.to
whom the chickens wnt rea ly belong.
Kinau's Boat Upne't.
On last Friday niht at Makena a
ery serious accident -happened to
ono ot the ivinuufl slnp-boiils, nl-
hough fortunately no lives were l.
The first boat, containing several
idles and children put off from shore
nd safely reached the steau,e.' . The
next boat, containing the mail anu
considerable freight including some
six dozen live turkeys, pigs, chick
ens and other freight met a comber
which washed the freight clerk over
board. He shouted to tho oarsmen
to pull ahead as he wus in no danger,
but they htsilated a moment, instead
of pulling forward a few strokes to
The resuk wus that an immense
'joniber caught the boat, upsetting it
aud dumping the mail und freight in
to the water. Only on,; mail sack
was recovered, and all the freight
was lost. Some three hours was spent
looking for the lost articles, ufiei
which the Kli.au left Makena, reach
