Moving Picture Show
On Thursday evening Inst a now
miracle happened at Kalivupapa. On
that evening It. K. ' Bonine, the
moving-picture expert, threw his
first picture' on the screen before an
audience of a thousand lepers, and
there was a great gasp of awed as
tonishment and keen delight when
the pictures really moved and did
things. Cheers, tears, gasps and
soul-satisfying laughter greeted the
pictures in turn, and when the reels
put aside for the first entertainment
had been exhausted, the people of
Kalaupapa and Kalawao, in a body,
cheered their thanks to the man
who had brought these wonders to
them and to those in Honolulu who
had through their contributions
made these miracles possible.
It was a great day for the people
of the Molokni Settlement, and it
was a great day for Bonine. To the
lepers had come a new marvel,
greater far than the sight of the
mighty White Fleet, A'hich maneu
vered past their shores last summer,
greater than anything that had come
to them." No place the world over
have motion pictures made such a
For the first time came, to those
people some tangible evidence of the
fact that the great outside world was
such as others had tried to tell them
it was; for the first time some, of
them saw the streets of a city; saw
places where the ground was white
with snow, saw strange In-asts and
men and women doing deeds of
wonder, and again and again rose
the cheers of those who witnessed
these marvels, cheers that were the
surcharged feeling of appreciation.
Bonine will remain in the Settle
ment another week, on the urgent
invitation of all the residents there.
Now, the place belongs to him. "All
the good will and everything else
their souls and bodies can do for me
are mine," writes Mr. Bonine, "and
it touches to the quick to see these
people try in every way they can to
show their feelings of thankfulness
and appreciation." 1
