HAWAIIAN BOARD SUNDAY
FOR FIRST TIME OBSERVED
This year an interesting innova
tion occurred in the work of the
missions in these Islands, when
"Hawaiian Board Sunday," so
called, was observed for the first
time. Previous years something
similar had been inaugurated, when
in Central Union Church several of
the workers of the Hawaiian Board
spoke upon what the Board was do
ing in the mission fields. This
year the plan was broadened to
take in all of the Union Churches of
the Islands, and exchanges were
effected in such a way that the same
theme was discussed throughout the
On Hawaii, Rev. Henry P. Judd
spoke on December 7th, at Keala
kekuu, and Rev. Frank S. Scudder
on December 14th, at Kohala
Union Church. On this same date
Rev. Doremus Scudder, D. D.
spoke at the Paia Union Church in
the morning, and at the Haiku
Homesteaders' service in the after
noon. Rev. John P. Erdman was
at Kahului Union Church in the
morning and at Wailuku in the
evening. Rev. W. B. Olcson spoke
at the Lihue Union Church.
The pastors of these various
Churches went to Honolulu and all
spoke at the Central Union Church.
Each speaker was allotted eight
minutes. While the speakers from
Honolulu were allowed to speak
upon any theme they desired in
the Churches to which they were
sent, the outside ministers were
confined to topics concerning the
Board's work that could be handled
in a few minutes. Rev. Rowland
B. Dodge was the first to speak.
His topic was "The Hawaiian
Board a Unifying Influence." He
briefly outlined the work of uniting
the Islands under the early influ
ence of the missionaries, who taught
the people the great principles of
love to God and their fellowmen.
Mr. Dodge said ho thought that
their teaching has done a great deal
to prevent serious labor troubles in
the Islands He said the spirit
behind the work of the Board was
a true American spirit which loved
freedom, and believed that one of
the reasons why Hawaii was now a
part of the United States was be
cause everywhere there had been
churches and public schools estab
lished in both of which the spirit
of freedom had been taught. He
commended the Hawaiian Board as
broad in its vision of duty, of uni
fying in its scope, for in it were
many different denominations re
presented in its leadership, and in
the Union Churches many more
denominations were engaged in
uniting on essentials of Christian
Rev. John F. Cowan, D. D. of
Kohala, Hawaii, delivered a strong
address on the topic "Providing
Leadership." Dr. Cowan briefly
summed up the work that certain
agents of the Hawaiian Bord were
doing, and the wide interest in
public affairs taken, and said that
the great work of the Board could
be carried on no better than by
providing just such men of sterling
character and insight into needs
and conditions. He felt that all
the leaders among the Chinese, Jap
anese and other races should be
equally strong to meet the emergen
cies that might arise.
Rev. J. M. Lydgate of Lihue,
Kauai, made an impassioned speech
in behalf of the Filipinos, saying
that they came to us Christians in a
state of mind which could be easily
influenced for Christianity, and felt
that Hawaii had a very great debt
to them, and that they were most
appreciative in their response. He
urged that work among theso peo
plo be begun without delay.
Rev. A. Craig Bowdish, pastor of
tho Paia Union Church, made a
strong impression upon all who
heard him. He spoke of the early
knowledge ho had of the Islands
through reading concerning them
when he was a boy. Ho then turn
ed to his topic "A Year In Hawaii"
and gave his impressions of the
work hero as he had seen it, and
said he felt that there was perhaps
no place where the problems of
missionary work were being faced
so frankly and so much dovotion
shown to the cause of Christianity,
as here. Ho closed his address by
saying ho was glad that the Union
Churches were broad enough to
take in the mystic, the man of
science and the one who in these
days felt that he was living his life
here on earth as a very expression
of God himself. He said the
church needs all these phases of
thought and felt sure that more
tolerance, rather than less, would
be the characteristic of tho future.
Rev. A. S. Baker, M. D. of Ke
alakekua made an interesting clos
ing speech upon the topic "Reasons
for Giving." This old topic and
the old way of urging people to
give were both made very lively and
appealing by Dr. Baker's interest
ing way of handling them. He
was anything but hackneyed, and
woke up his hearers to their Bense
of responsibility for the condition
of missions in these Islands. He
also spoke particularly upon the
spiritual rewards that came from
conscientious giving of money and
time to the work cf the Kingdom of
God. The address was unique in
many ways, and proved that Dr.
Baker has well established his repu
tation as an entertaining and force
The service at Central Union was
an altogether interesting one as was
borne out by the testimony of many
of the audience who spoke with
particular interest upon what was
said. The people present were the
regular congregation of the Church,
and not as many strangers were
there as usual. The music under
the direction of Mr. A. B. Ingalls
was excellent. Tho double quar
tette of the Church have won for
themselves this year an enviable

him on his way to the federal court,
dressed in a dark brown suit such
as any individual might wear if he
was going up town to get a shave
and hair cut. It merely showed
the democracy of the man. He
might have had the aim of the
chief justice to the court house but,
instead, he walked with a young
man whose position is not one of
importance in the community. Jeff

there is a chance that there may be

The Elks are making great pre
parations to receive Uncle Pink"
when he arrives on January 30th
from the coast. There is to be a
transparency acros3 the street on
which will be his portrait in heroic
size, l was nonoreu by an invita
tion from the artist to take a look
at it before it was finished. It's a
buster for size, and can be seen a
distance of mile, if one can see that
far. The likeness is fairly good, as
good as the,average of that class of
work, tho painting being made from
a black and white half tone which
may have been made from a photo
graph taken twenty minutes after
he heard of his confirmation. Tho
expression on his countenance is
one of satisfaction with all tho
world nearly. I believe that after
he found ho had the friendship of
enough senators to make him sure
of the job, ho sent a wire to friends
here like this: "Let us love one
another and work for tho good of
Hawaii." I may not have the
: words correctly, but the sentiment
is there all right. There is a strong
belief here that Mr. Pinkham will
make a good governor and that Dr.
Cooper will have tho most influcncu
with him in mapping out his policy,
and directing the men on the firing
line. That he will make some
changes is certain; Dr. Pratt may
bo one of them, if there is a flaw in
tho commission that holds him to
the job at present, for I do not be
lieve that Uncle Pink is as loving
toward Pratt as some of his nearest
relatives. People have their likes
and dislikes and Pratt, I am inform
ed, is one of those Pinkham does
not hanker after. You cannot tell ;
there may be fewer changes and less
contention than is anticipated. All
eyes are on the secretaryship in
wondering who will get tho place.
There are many after it, but it may
happen that the governor will de
cide that as it was the republican
members of the senate who voted
most for him that he will lean to
ward a member of that party for
The promised payment of a lot of
extra earnings to holders of shares
in several of the plantations comes
as a wad in the Christmas stocking.
It is nice to have tho good things
come just at this time, because there
arc many here who have been de
prived of giving on account of lack
of dividends from their sugar stocks.
When I hear of a man having his
income nipped from seventci'n hun
dred dollars a month to eleven
hundred dollars I wonder how the
poor fellow lives. Ncvspaper men
would find it difficult to make ends
meet if such a drop should come to
them. Now that it has been shown
that certain economic features in
tho management of a plantation do
not lessen the crop, nor depreciate
the quality of it, after January
first there will be such reforms
in the management of big estates,
that most of them will be able to
pay the same old dividents in spite
of tho tariff. Everything else i
higher, now that the tariff is off sos
I see no reason why the price of
sugar should go down, in fact I
look for an increase in it and witli
the benificcnt rains wo have had for
a month, the crop should be large.
The ruling of the commissioners
of education that teachers must
stick to their desks, or lose their
per diem, will hit some of the head
achy girls hard. Nearly every other
class of workirig man or woman lose
pay when they are at homo on
leave, and the rule can well be
applied to teachers oven though they
are not too well paid. It may tempt
them to get out and do a little
gardening or to take a little more
exercise for tb be healthy exercise
of some kind is necessary. Teachers
are poorly paid and get little sympa
thy. If tho pay is small the fault
lies with the legislature that fails
to appropriate sufficient for the.
cause. Not being educated them
selves, as is the case with many of
tho law makers, they see no reason
why anything more than tho three
Rs should be frisked into anybody's
knowledge crop. As time passes
there will be changes in the person
nel of the legislatureand, sometime,
we will have a body of men who
know what a real education means
to tho young man starting out in
life. I know college grads who are
earning as high as fifteen dollars a
week, but the average is far below.
What would they bo getting if they
had not received an education?
