LUAU TO CONGRESSMEN.
Saturday last a most successful
luau was given the Congressional
party at the Fishery at Kahului.
While the same was being prepared
the visitors were taken out in a
barge around the harbor in the
hope of catching a shark but the
finny tribe seemed to be wise and
kept at a safe distance. On their
return the party were royally en
tertained at thu beach house of
Judge A, N. Kepoikai. .About noon
the visitors and many Maui people
sat down lo one of the best luaus
ever given on the island. A largo
lani had been creeled and seats
provided for the visitors, an inno
vation at a luau. Many of the
dishes wero entirely new to the
members of the party and the
manner in which they ato certain
dishes caused some to smile.
Edward G. Lowroy, the Washing
ton correspondent of the New York
Evening Post who accompanied
the party was taught by one of the
Hawaiian ladies "to cat a live
shrimp (opai). Ho tried manfully
and finally succeeded by rolling it
in poi and swallowing it whole.
After satisfying himself that it was
dowu to stay until ho became seasick
he asked if it was as good coming up
as it was going down. Mr. Forbes
another correspondent sosmed to
think Hawaiian Cocoanut pudding
was some kind of a drink and filled a
glass and proceeded to drink it. At
so much lack of knowledge of the
manner of eating the different 'dishes
many of the ladies tried bravely to
repress smiles but it was often too
much for them. At the close of the
feast Congressman Littlefield made
a short address thanking tho people
for their hospitality and congratulat
ed them on their scenery of unsurpass
ed beauty, their vast cane fields and
great progress in industry and edu
cation. As a speaker ho was a de
cided success but when it came to
pronouncing Hawaiian names ho was
a decided failure. At tho close of
his address he called on Judge A. N.
Kepoikci who hud charge of the en
tcrtaiumcnt of the visitors at the

luau. The Judge had. evidently won
the hearts of the whole party by his
characteristic hospitality and atten
tion to the comfort and entertain
ment of the visitors. He was follow
ed by CongrcssmanBrick who won
the hearts of all who heard him. flu
was most dramatic and forceful in
his speech and convinced all of his
sincerity. ' The manner in which he
avoided the pronouneiation of Hawn1
iian names was noted and appreciat
ed by many. lie spoko of tho wond
erful scenery of the I.io valley, of the
vast cane fields ol Puunene of the
great depths of tho water pumping
at Kihoi, and of their trip to the
summit of Ilaleakala (tho house of
the sun) the largest, crater on earth
but not once uiil tie dare attempt to
pronounce the name of a single plaei
lie had visited.
On their way to the steamer a
hundred people went with them and
sang in any Hawaiian songs which
were appreciated by tho visitors.
As tho steamer was lifting her
anchors Attorney J. L. Coke was
called en to bid the party farewell
which he did in a few well chosen
words. His speech was replied to
by Congressman Cole who said tho
only good reason why he should fol
low Coke was that Coke was Cole,
witli tho gass taken out and as he
was supplied with a superabundance
of the latter he seemed to be eoiisid
ered the proper party to reply. The
party kept the whistle blowing and
handkerchief waving as long as they
wero !n sight and left with the best
wishes of all of their newly made
friends. Tho intention when they
left here was to visit the rubber
country of Nahiku but 011 reaching
there-' it was found too rough to land.
WAILUKU COUItT HOUSE.
Superintendent of Public Works
ITolhvay is working on tho plans
for the now conrlhouso at Wailuku

priated $25,000 at tho recent
session. He states that thoy will
be completed soon and that bids

This statement is good news for
Wailuku. Tho old court building
has been an eyo soro to Wailuku
for years. At tho last session of
tho Circuitt Court Judf,o Kepoikai
was compelled to inako arrange
ments for housing the Grand Jury
in the old School house In for
mer times the basement of one of
the Churches was used for tho same
purpose. While it would have
been the better part of wisdom to
put up a more costly building tho
amount will bo suHieent to erect a
building that will answer tho pur
pose for years to come.

Mrs. London shortly after their

stated that her husband intended

They will not go lo Honolulu to

tho present at least, the peaceful
ness of tho Ilobron cottage, whither
the typewriter has already been
transferred from the cabin of the
Snark and where its click will be
heard until late in July.
London reports that for tho first
week or two out of San Francisco
the majority of the six people
aboard wero very sea-sick.
The trip ho says, was very un
eventful and light winds were ox
perienced nearly all the way. For
the first four days there was per
haps more wind than was enjoyed
for any other- four consecutive days.
A southerly courso was taken for
wind and the ketch was out of the
track of ocean liners most of the
way down. Latterly her covirse was
south-west and she held on this
course until tho nineteenth latitu
dinal. Tho Snark raised the island of
Maui on Friday last and on Satur
day evening she was off Makapuu
point, this island. , Sho was be
calmed off the Koolaus, Oaliu, all
