The University of California man

experts on the Coast. His promise
to assist at the Territorial Fair Is
the llnnl detail needed to insure the
success of the stock show. Nearly !
300 entries have been filed, for horses,
cattle, swine and sheep. Island firms
and individuals have donated more
than forty beautiful silver cups, whics
will be offered as special prizes in
the different departments. In addi
tion to these specials, several hun
dred regular awards, in the form or
ribbons, will be given for first, sec
ond and third places in various class
es. The entries filed Bhow that the
stiffest kind of competition may be

Passenger Steers Boat
Following the swamping the boat
drifted helpless and was in immin
ent danger of being completely cap
sized by following waves, when
George M. Collins, engineer for the
Bishop Estate, grabbed the steering
oar and succeeded in swinging the
craft around and finally to the shore.
' Boat Off Course
It is the unanimous verdict of both
passengers and spectators from the
landing, that the boat was consider
ably westward of the channel at the
time of the trouble, and very near
the place where the fatal capsizing of
a Mauna Kea boat occurred on May
1, 1915. It is also agreed that the
channel was not dangerously rough.
Two boats carrying deck passengers
had already proceeded the ill-fated
boat ashore without difficulty,
i Signal Showing
Because the surf was high on both
sides of the channel, however, the
caution signal a green and red light
was showing from the wharf and
should have been sufficient to warn to
boat steerer to be careful. Accord
ing to passengers, when the boat
steerer realized that he was off his
course, he attempted to turn, and this
permitted ho third of a series of big
waves to catch the boat almost
broadside and all but turn it over.
Most of the passengers lost more
or less personal property, though, the
bulk of the hand baggage, suit-cases,
etc., which were stowed under the
seats, did not get out of the boat.
The like accident which occurred
at Lahaina three years ago, resulted
in the drowning of a Chinese man
and a Japanese woman, and the narrow
escape of a number of other passen
gers. An exhaustive investigation of the
affair was made by the public utilities
board, which found that the steam
ship company was remiss in not hay
ing had the landing boat in charge of
a ship's officer.
The 1917 legislature then restored
to the loan fund bill an item of
$100,000 for building a wharf at La
haina, but the bonds for this were
The need for a safer landing at La
haina has long been recognized. The

MAKAWAO UNION CHURCH
"Immanuel" was the theme of the
Rev. A. Craig Bowdish last Sunday
at the Makawao Union Church. The
minister said in part that Mathew
saw in Jesus' life and work a broad,
deep force for righteousness and
Justice. In this he saw that Jesus
gave a new value to the prophet
Isaiah's statement centuries earlier
that a child should be born who would
have the name Immanuel which in
English means "God with Us."
The question naturally arises why
is God with us and why should we
give any heed to it. One is driven
to the conclusion that this fact has
little value for us as individuals un
less we contribute something to com
plete the friendship in co-operation.
Lincoln was right in declaring that
he was not so much concerned as to
whether God was on his side as he
was whether he was on God's side.
We are enable to know something
of what our contribution may and
should be by considering what Jesus
as Immanuel gave. Jesus contributed
four elements of capital to men.
(1) Thought. He gave much time
and attention to knowing and under
standing the needs or manKinu.
(2) Emotion. He freely gave

(4) Will. Jesus willed to serve.

When he rightly developed ana
used such a wealth of capital there
is no mystery in the fact that "God
was with him." The teaching is that
God Is with every one who uses his

PENTECOST, AND CHURCH UNITY
By Rev. J. Charles Villiers,
fChe.rch of the Good Shepherd.)
Whit-Sunday "onimenorates the
first Pentecost of the New Testament.
I'mlcr the old dispensation, Pentecost
was the culminating day in the
"Feast of Weeks" or "Feast of Har
vest." as it was also called. The pur
pose of the feast was to keep alive
in the minds of the Herbrew people
the thought of their relation to and
dependence on God for the common
necessities of life, and also, by certain
c ustcins of the feast, to r; min i ('m
of their national unity. Pentecost
was a day of sacred and solemn con
vocation, one of three great days in
the year when every Jewish male
was required to present himself be
fore Jehovah, in the observance of
the ritual of his religious faith. The
correspondence of ideas between Ten
tecost of the Old Testament, and
Pentecost of the New Testament is
not without significance. As the older
Pentecost emphasized the unity of
God's chosen people and their de
pendence upon God for blessing, so
the Christian Pentecost emphasizes
the unity of the Church, and the need
of the presence and ministry of the
Holy Spirit in it as the one great es
sential for spiritual progress.
Whatever mystery the first Christ
ian Pentecost may hold for us one
thing is plain in connection with it,
that is, it was preceded by a spiritual
unity, such as had not been known
among the Disciples the nucleus of
(he Church in the days before our
Lord's crucifixion. Personal pride
had yielded to humility among them.
They had truly become men of prayer,
seeking to know God's will, and to be
guided by Him in all things. They
were held in closest fellowship with
each other, through their constant,
united fellowship with God. JVhile
the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, at
Pentecost, is the fulfillment of
Christ's gracious promise to his dis
ciples, it is also God's response to
'their faith and fidelity.
I However fascinating may be the
thought of "unity in variety", a
phrase to which men often give ex
pression when they defend the separ
ation of the Church into hundreds of
denominations, it cannot be serious
ly argued that such "unity In variety"
lis according to the mind of Christ, or
is the best expression of Church un
ity that can be placed before the
! world. Surely there could be found
some better order of "unity in var
iety" in the Church than is found in
the nearly two hundred and fifty ec-
' clesiatical organizations of our time.

nominations suggests that there must

lave been, in time past, an abuse of
Christian liberty, the results of which
ire not good in our day for either
religion or morals. We need to find
pome better way than has been found
(luring the past few centuries to ex
press to the world the corporate mind
of the Church.
I do not say there is no kind or
nhadow of Christian unity in the
Church separated, as it is, into num-
.inuis, difi'erent nrganizat ions. But
I do say that the unity is marred and
does not accord with the mind of
Christ. And remember whatever in
the Church is not according to the
mind of Christ hinders its usefulness
and spiritual progress. While, there
Core, there is Christian unity, a unity
): 1 1n' Spirit .c ven though th"Ve is such
widespread denominat ionalism, yet
separation does not contribute to it.
It exists in spite of seperation, and
because, at the back of the human
mind lies the true thought that, "the
Church is. and can be, but. one, be
cause Christ founded but one society,
and endowed it with but one life".
That is the true idea of the Church,
and it is that idea St. Paul seizes on
when he writes: "There is one body,
and one Spirit, one Lord, one faith,
one baptism, one God and Father of
all, who is over all, and through all,
and in all".
And now let me say that the min
istry of the I Inly Spirit in the Church
is essential to its spiritual progress.
In that remarkable statement, recent
ly made, by Prince LIchnowsky, form
er German ambassador to England,
he confesses, with full knowledge of
the facts, that the present war is
entirely due to the perfidy of Ger
many. He uses these words: "We
pressed for the war. We deliberately
destroyed the possibilities of a peace
ful settlement. My mission was
wrecked bv the perfidy of our own
policy. I had to support in London a
policy which I knew to be fallacious.
I was paid out for it for it was a
sin against the Holy Ghost. For that
sin Germany will yet have to pay.
The price will be that of a weakened
potentiality as a nation. And that is
the price the Church always pays for
sin against the Holy Ghost. From
ever)' such sin there follows a loss of
spiritual power. What is sin against
the Holy Ghost? Above all else, it
is turning the truth of God into a lie.
It is shutting the door of the mind
against the truth a it is in Jesus. It
is abstention from prayer. It is with
holding ourselves from that fellow
ship of sympathy and worship which
in our heart of hearts we know we
ought to give to God. These
you may say are sins of the individu
al. Yes, but the individual is, or
should be, a part of the corporate life
of the Church, and to the extent that
the individual is guilty of the sins
he brings weakness and not strength
to the Church. It is said in the Gos
pel of Christ that he could not do
many mighty works in a certain place
because of the people's unbelief. Ac
cording to the New Testament the
ministry of the Holy Spirit in the
Church is the continuation of Christ's
work in history. Just as unbelief,
and faithlessness, were obstacles to
bis success in the days of his flesh,
so they are now in the days of his
spirit. As he said of old, so ho says
today "Behold I stand at the door and
knock, if any man will open the door
I will come into him and sup with
him, and he with me".
