WAILUKU, MAUI, T. H., FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 12, 1915.
Big Celebration of
Two to Four Day Holiday All Over
Territory. Parades, Games and
Ceremonial Gatherings Included.
Since Wednesday, the day of the
coronation of the Japanese emperor,
the Japanese of nil Hawaii have boon
celebrating tho event and ns a result
labor on most of tho plantations Is
almost at a standstill. On the I'uu
none and Pala plantations Wednes
day and Thursday were taken as full
holidays, while at Walluku the Japa
nese are taking Friday and Satur
day off. Everywhere a great nniount
of quiet enthusiasm is in evidence,
nesldes much private entertaining
sports and parades and other cere
monials have marked tho joyous oc
casion. At Hhmakuapoko and Pala there
were wrestling matches and a num
ber of parades, but they were more
or less interfered with by the rain.
Yesterday morning the Japaneso of
Kahulul had- an elaborate parade in
fancy costume, with automobile and
wagon floats and street dancing. The
procession came up to Walluku and
attracted much attention on Market
street and other sections of tho town
where it passed.
A very largo crowd of the Japa
nese of this part of tho Island assemb
led at the base ball park this morning
where the ceremonial salute was
made to tho newly-crowned monarch,
tho entire multitude facing towards
tho west and making a solemn and
profound obeisance. Later a variety
of sports took place, all typically Japa
nese, including wrestling matches in
which local experts tried their
prowess against one another. This
evening tho big feature is to be a
lantern parade. There is to bo geisha
dancing on Market street, and later
also in tho homo grounds of Manager
Pcnhallow, whore tho parade will pass
ns a mark of respect.
Half n dozen picturesque arches
carrying paper lanterns were erected
'across Market street on Wednesday,
but tho rain virtually destroyed these
and other decorations. Partial repairs
have been made since. It is under
stood that largo funds have been
raised in all of tho Japaneso com
munities for defraying tho expenses
of tho big demonstration.
In Honolulu, besides tho same kind
of celebration as has boon In evidence
here, the Japaneso consul, II. Aritn
cntertnincd with an elaborate dlnr
nor, to which tho Governor and other
territorial officials and other digni
taries were invited.
Olowalu Is To Have
New Catholic Church
County Will Be Asked For Bell For

Father Druno expects to petition
tho board of supervisors to sell to
tho church tho old bell which now
hangs, all but useless in tho belfry
of tho Lahaina courthouse. For sent!
mental reasons, as well as practical
ones, it is hoped that tho counliy
fnthers may seo fit to part with the
bell which is said not to be made use
of in its present position. Many years
ago this bell hung in tho llttlo tower
of the Catholic mission church -fit
Ukemchamo, which is tho name of the
big valley several miles east of Olo
wal'u. This valley was otaco we'll
populated with native Hawaiians, but
the community is no more from
deaths and removals. Tho church
was unused for some tlmo and, then
ono day a heavy wind out of tho valley
proved too much for its old timbers,
and it collapsed. This was some ten
or fifteen years ago. Tho boll was
later sold to tho county, and placed
in the Lahaina court house as a fire

sent time. Nor is it altogether cor
tain the Louis Warren's Umpqua will
