Famous Old Church
Many Visitors Gather In Reconstruc
ted Temple On Molokai For Interes
ting Ceremonies Maui Well
Fully 350 people attended the dedic
ation services of the Kaluanha Church,
Molokai, which were held Sunday,
August 12th. The very heavy raiji of
Saturday, and another heavy shower
just before church, interfered with the
coining of good many people.
The church has been beautifully
finished under the direction of H. R.
Hitchcock who is in charge of tb
committee of the Maui Aid Associa
tion. The carpenter who did the work
was William Keo who secured Molokai
men largely from the local congroga
tion to assist. The building cost over
$7000.00 to repair, but it was in a very
bad shape and needed a great deal ol
attention. The walls were crumbling
in places so that some but tresses had
to be placed a few years ago to sup
port the walls and they were now lin
ed with a coating of cement, so Un
building should stand for a great num
ber of years.
The dedication service was especi
ally pleasing because -of the large at
tendance of ministers from away, to
gether with all the Molokai ministers,
and the large Halawa choir, which is
the most famous choir in the Islands,
under the leadership of Duv'd Kala
au, sang a number of beautiful antliems
at the services.
Rev. J. L. Kopa of Kohala, Hawaii,
preached an interesting sermon. Oth
er miniBtcrs who took part were: Rev.
John Kama, of Puna, Hawaii; Rev.
S. Kamaiopili, Rev. Henry F. Judd,
and Rev. V. P.. Coale. Rev. R. I?.
Dodge gave the financial statement of
the church, showing the amount yet
reeded, and Rev. I. D. Iaea offered the
prayer of dedication and read respons
es on dedication. Judg John V. Ka
lua gave an interesting history of the
church which was erected about the
year 1848, under the dire ction of Fath
er HitclicocK, the first m'ssionary of
Molokai. At the Communion Service
in the afternoon, at which other min
isters took part besides those mention
ed above including Rev. John P. Eid
man and Rev. P. Judd, eight children
were bapUzed and five young people
joined the church.
On Monday morning five visitors
addressed a Sunday School institute
upon the Sunday School work of the
church. This meeting was well at
tended and created a great deal of

talion. Major Lincoln, who was on Maui
last Saturday to select the men, stat
ed that he was leaving out men who
might qualify, for the reason that it
is not the policy of the war depart
ment to hamper the sugar business of
the islands, and Maul was offering
more than her share.
For Civic Convention
C. B. Cage, Chairman of th public
ity committee of the 6th civic conven

That Hawaii is destined to be the
educational center of the world in the
line of sugar technology, is the grow
ing belief of many persons who have
been watching the progress of this
branch of the work of the College of
Hawaii. Dr. A. L. Dean, president of
the institution states that inquiries
are coming from all sugar countries
concerning the course of study. Ex
perts declare that the institution has
