The dedication services of the new
Korean Church at Spreckelsville
took place on Sunday, March 22nd,
under the direction of Rev. John
V. Wadman, superintendent of
Methodist Missions in Hawaii. The

trance,' situated in a' large open
space near the hospital and in close
proximity to the camps of the lab
orers. It cost in the neighborhood of
8500 with 850 or more. for furnish
ings. ' Towards this amount the
Koreans subscribed upwards of 8200
while the plantation generously
assisted in providing the- balance.
The dedication exercises took
place in the afternoon when the
building, capable of seating 100,
was comfortably filled with Koreans.
Several hymns were heartily sung,
Scripture passages recited in concert,
a sermon preached by the Superin
tendent, the keys presented by the
Trustees, the prayer of dedication
offered and a closing address by tie
Hon. II. P. 'Baldwin, who express
ed himself as greatly pleased with
the occasion and urged the members
of the Church to by faithfulyn their
