Honolulu, September 20,
Editor Review: It seem as if one
might write forever about the woa
drous tropical beauty of these Ha
waiian Islands the Paradise of the
Pacific. There is so much here that
appeals to one's sense of the beauti
ful and luxuriant in nature. The
languorous climate, the graceful,
easy hospitality that abounds, the
magnificent vistas of deep green
valleys, set off so artistically by
fringes of cocoanut trees, the enor
mous sugarcane plantations, the
superb roads flanked by scenery that
would rjake any park in America fa
mous, and 'the prodigality of natui
on every hand are only sample 6ub
jects for chapters for any descriptive
writing from these South Sea Islands
When tt-ese have been finished there 'i
still an ocean of material for endless
letters to 'people who know nothing
of the subtle idyllic charm of Hawaii
Today I want to tell of the native
Hawaiians themselves. They are
race unique in the world. Tbey are
vanishing race like our American In
dians,' and I doubt not that many
child now alive will live to see a scan
few kanakas felt la the world. Con
tact with the white man's civilization
spells decay and death to all races of
the South Seas.
The Hawaiian arn a particularly
bland and cheerful race. A crabbed
sour, unhappy old Hawaiian Is
rarity. A scheming, grasping Ha
waiian is unknown. The sunshine of
youth animates even the oldest among
them, and except for their white
hairg and very wrinkled, swarthy
faces, one would not believe the Ila
waiians feel the touches of time when
sixty and seventy years of life have
passed over them.
It is commoo to see gray haired
people rolling and tumbling on the
sward In play with their graodohild
ren. An aged grandparent and his
dozen boy gracdchlldren will go on a
fishing excursion with a common en
thusiasm, and all erne home together
like a . pack of hilarious schoolboys.
Hawaiian parents and their children
will dance, play simple games and
plague one another without thought
of a difference in ages, for a half day
at a time. The natives are as ira-
provident, lor the morro.w as little

Among any people but the Hawaii
an the hot-rime biignt o( leprosy
would create a serious and saddened
race. Hun lreds of homes In the is
lands have a representative or two
among the miserable beinirs who have
been transported to the leper settle
ment. on Molokai island to remain
there until death relieves them frrm
isolation and disease. But one would
hardly know, unless hei xamlned into
the subject concerning the prevalence
of leprosy in the Hawaiian islands
The natives never speak of the tils
ease themselves, no matter how
much their hearts may be bmakinL'
with pity for banish' d and diseased
members of th' ir families.' They
merely shrug their shoulders and
change the subject v hen conversa
Hon veers that way.
The Hawaiians love mu'to rmre
than any race in the South sea. The
strumming of a banj j or a guitar or
the clarion notes of a cornet wii)
draw a throng of natives at a time,
If the music is gay the feet of the
crowd will presently begin to more
in time to the music. Four out of
five of the natives are able to play
some musical instrument, and as one
rides alo g the road in the outskirts
of Honolulu at evening when the
day's work is done, a continuous
train of string music may be heard
from the grasi huts and lowly cabins
of the natives.
At the Glaus Spreckels great eu
gar plantation of Maui, it is one of
articles of agreement with the 1500
native laboters that tbey shall be
provided with musical instructraents
and a plase to dance.
A dozen years ago a hand organ
man invaded Honolulu and it W said
he set the natives about, crazy with
delight at his novel and wonderful
Native men and women could not
be induced to work for days at a time,
and thousands of them followed the
hand organ man about all day long.
At last the sugar and rice planters
rose in their anger and secretly paid
the organ grinder ten m'nutes the
value of his musical apparatus to
smash the instrument and quit the
The Hawaiians have sweet, melo
dious voices, unlike any we know
among our American singers. Their
many songs are of a hightly romatic
order. They have choruses that tell
of the lovelof the soft zephyrs and
the goodness of the mother earth
The roaring of the sea and the music
of the waterfall abound in lovs and
The Hawaiian is not fond of amuse
ments as his pale faced brother knows
them. He is not much fa card
player. Gambling is less general in
Hawaii than anywhere else among
the Pacific archipelagoes. Violent
sports are naturally distasteful to
the people of t'.e tropics, and dramas
have uo charm for them.
They love to bathe above every
thing else, and they are the most
swimmers on this earth.
Every native learns to swim almost
ioe man or wouan who cannot go
a mile or two out in the tossing blue
of the Pacific, is pitied by the broth

swumniug boards six feet long and
a foot wide, upon which .they ride
the breakers off shore.
When the wind blows hardest and
the cocoanut trees bend and sway
most, and when the waves roll high
est, thousands of the natives will go
hastening down to the coast, each
with a swimming board under his or
her arm. For hours, often, for a
whole day long, the i atives enjoy
themselves like litllo boys in the
