IT'S A RECORD GATHERING
1 1ll HISTORY
A Village of Tents With Streets
Teeming With Bright and
The 1912 Association of the
churches of Hawaii is probably the
"largest in the history of the Asso
ciation. So large in fact that it
was found necessary t o employ
two steamers to bring it here, viz:
the Kinau arriving Wednesday
morning and the Claudine arriving
' Thursday morning. The host of
guests were rapidly conveyed by
automobiles and bus to their
quarters within easy reach of the
church grounds. A villiage o f
tents under the trees, and the
school buildings close by. A large
awning-covered lanai with ample
table and seat accommodation
served as dining room where a
tienerous bounty was dispensed
3 times a day none too ample and
"none to often for the hungry
guests. Kitchens at hand supplied
the viands steaming hot with the
appetizing odors thrown in.
The opening meeting a t once
demonstrated the fact, which had
been surmised before that no build
ing in Lihue would adequately
contain the Association.
So after the opening session the
meetings were transferred to the
lawn in front of the church where
large over-arching trees made a
natural cathedral of large propor
tions and great beauty, w i t h
nothing to b e desired i n light
and ventilation. In default of a
stage the short-speaker was set up
on a chair or bench and points of
vantage on the stone wall, were
chosen by such as wanted more
fully to take in the varied scene,
or snap a camera on it.
At night the vestibule and broad
steps of the church, suitably light
ed, formed an excellent stage from
which the speakers and singers
addressed the great audience ranged
on the lawn at their feet while the
massive trees retreating into the
shadows kept guard about them.
Night or clay it formed a most
artistic and picturesque scene an
object lesson in out-door effects
that will not be forgotten.
Lihue Ladies Give Luncheon t o Visiting
One of the most interesting and
enjoyable events of the day was the
lunch served to the white delegates
by the ladies of Lihue under the
trees at the school cottage. The
delegates expressed themselves as
never so well treated in their long
and varied experiences.
From 4 to 5 p. m. every day,
afternoon tea was served at the
same place and the people of Lihue
largely availed themselves of the
opportunity to meet the visiting
members of the convention. These
l proved to be most delightful oc-
Feeding the Array of Delegates is a Big

For nearly a week. Lihue has
been obeying this command litter
ally. Hundreds of God's people
have gathered round bountiful
tables three times each day. Scores
of bakers, butchers, cooks and
waiters are kept constantly on, the
run preparing the food for this
great mass of people. Back of this
army of servants, stands the key

apparent unlimited supply of food.
He is up early, late, here now and
there next and nearly everywhere
at the same Jime. You are sure to
find him at meal times, passing
among the long tables, dropping
a pleasant word here and there,
and seeing that the elder delegates
receive special attention and get
all they wish to eat. With his exe

pleasing personality, Mr. Rice is
a person whose absence from the
convention would leave an aching
Secretary Reads Annual Report Which is
Filled With Interesting Facts.
The annual report of the Secre
tary of the Hawaiian Board, Rev.
W. B. Oleson, was interesting and
suggestive as well as very en
couraging. The total membership of the
churches under the Hawaiian,
Board or affiliated with it is 8394
about 5000 of which is Hawaiian,
distributed among 68 churches.
Attention was called to he
growing need for fresh material
for recruits, the ranks of the Ha
waiian ministry being thinnecj by
deatli and other causes.
The Japanese churches show a
membership of nearly 1300 with a
net gain for the year of 154.
Large :a n d'lniportaut Advances,
are being made in this work ..and
many very excellent men are in
the field or in training for it.
A veteran leader in the mission
ary work who has devoted a long
life to it on two continents, Rev.
O. H. Gulick, now retires largely
from the active service and will
devote his attention to the prepar
ation of a History of the mission
ary work on Hawaii.
Four new church buildings are
reported, one, and probably the
most beautiful, being thatatHana
lei now awaiting dedication.
Attention was called t o the
growing need of social settlement
work especially in and about Ho
nolulu whither so large a propor
tion of the population steadily
gravitates a n d comprehensive
plans for meeting the needs of
this work were reported.
The Kohala Seminary for girls
was commended especially as a
most worthy institution badly in
need of aid. It was hoped that
some generous giver might make
it the object of a suitable endow
ment. It is significant of the range
and extent of the work of the Ha
waiian Board that the Treasuer re
ported a n expenditure of over
$87,000 though but $52,000 or so
Was spent in the regular work.
The presence of Mr. M . B .
Bairosin Lihue with a Tuberculosis
exhibition, enabled the Association
to secure an illustrated lecture from
him on that importaut subject.
The pictures were thrown onto a
screen on the wall of the church
while the audience sat on the lawn.
The expert interpreter of the
Association explained each scene
as it appeared.
One of the wonders of such a
convention is the size, success and
versatility of the Sunrise Prayer
meetings. W h e n the ordinary
householder is enjoying his last
nap or getting leisurely into his
clothes for the clay the large
church is filling up to overflowing
with an eager, buoyant yet reverent
crowd bent on getting the most
out of the opportunity. N o
prodding is necessary no oft-repeated
assurance "the meeting is
in your hands" It goes like an
auto on a down grade nothing
will stop it but the breakfast bell
which does it with instant effect.
Mr. R. L. Wilcox as chairman,
of the voimniltee of arrangements
deserves much credit for the
smooth way in which things went,
more especially as some of the con
ditions were experimental and
subject t o sudden, change.
It goes without saying that there
was much fine singing during the
