The Children Participate
One of the most picturesque and in
teresting scenes In the whole pageant
was that in which 160 kindergarten
children of the six immigrant nation
altites swarmed over the top of the
hill and down to join their elders in
the Evolution of Industry.
They were" led by the Pled Piper,
after the manner of Browning's famil
iar poem, and it was with the utmost
difficulty that they made the steep and
rugged descent they were such little
tots. Arrayed in vivid colors accord
ing to race and nationality, they made
a very effective picture.
Procession Caps the Climax
The final scene in which the monster
procession of the various interests and
organizations, all In white, with their
banners in color, climbed the hill, and
formed in a great triangle, with a tow
ering white cross at the apex, was
singularly picturesque and effective. In
the mellow light of the declining sun,
the predominant white of the costumes,
with the pink, blue and green of the
fluttering banners, came out wonder
fully well. The effectiveness of the
whole thing was a great surprise, as
there had been considerable doubt as
to how it would pan out, especially
as there had been no rehearsal of it.
Advent of the Prince
One of the most interesting epi
sodes of the pageant, and one which
for the moment over-shadowed it,
was the coming of the Prince of
Presumably by some mistake on the
part of those who had him in hand, he
came up through the center of the
audience, to the edge of the stage,
and then around on the side to his
box. Hepassed within a few feet of
where we were standing a very nice
looking boy, thoroughly patrician
in every line of face and figure, and
yet democratic, responsive, and ap
pioachable in his manner and bearing.
As soon as h was seated the great
chorus of some nine hundred voues
burst forth in "God Save the King"
and did it as heartily and enthusias
tically as any EngliHh chorus would
Even more spectacular In a way
and more varied, was the public pa
rade which represented under many
different aspects the progress of the
A Hundred Years In Picture
In 57 Sections, which took an hour
and a half to pass overy important
phase of Island lite and history was
represented, largely by graphic and
artistic floats, which presented the
salient features of our history at a
glance. The intelligent observer was
much impressed by the originality of
the conceptions, as well as by the in
genuity and fidelity of the presenta
tions. The Crowds Along the Line
Never in the history of Honolulu
have there been such crowds massed
together for any public event. From
Aala Park to Thomas Square, the line
of march was fairly blockaded, so that
it was with difficulty that the line
was kept clear, for the floats to pass,
and even the side cross streets were
crowded at the point of junction.
Forseeing the crowds, the knowing
ones, who wanted to see comfortably,
had stationed their autos at special
points of vantage in the early fore
noon, leaving them parked there, un
til near the time for the parade, when
they took their places in thorn.
At Thomas Square, and other points
of special vantage bleachers were set
up? or platforms and benches had been
built by families for their private use.
Piazzas, walls, windows, and roots
overlooking the line of march, were of
course very much in demand, and
even branches of trees and telephone
poles were sought out by adventurous
boys and men bound to see everything
to the best advantage.
I was fortunate enough to be with
friends in the old Atherton place on
King street, under the shade of his
toric palms, a little elevated above
the street and separated from It by a
lone parapet wall.
Hawaiian Societies 8howed
The Kaahumanu Society termed a
picturesque feature of the parade in
black holokus with yellow lets It
was a long march for many of them
who were well along in years, but they
carried it out with surprising endur
ance. One old lady with whom I
talked, said she was 83 and that a
walk like that didn't phase her at all.
In addition to the Kaahumanus
there were several other societies not
so well known. The Hui Oiwi, The
Hale o na Alii, the Ahahui Hoopakele
o na Poola and the Longshoremen's
Mutual Aid Association. These so
cieties wore their appropriate cos
tumes, very effective combinations of
white and lavender and other colors.
The Longshoremen were sturdy steve
dores etc, and wore red woolen shirts
in which they visibly sweltered, much
to their own discomfort, and the
ruin of the red shirts. Strange
to say the Kaumualii Society was not
represented. It would have made a
very picturesque and appropriate ad
dition to the parade.

ful interest toi the teachings of the
haole missionary. The modorn Kaa
humanu had caught the spirit of
proud Indifference of the ancient Kaa
hdmanu remarkably well, and in
avoirdupois was not far behind of her.
First Appearance of American Navy
One of the most effective and appro
priate floats of the lot was that repre
senting the visit of the Peacock, the
Hawaii, in 1826. The purpose of the
first American naval vessel visit was
to negtlate a troaty between the Unit
ed States and Hawaii. The float car
ried a miniature replica of the vessel,
Ave or six feet long, carefully wrought
out to thet lr.st detalla, very effect
ive. This float was put on by the U.
Vancouver and His Animals
The Metropolitan Meat Maiket very
fittingly staged the arrival of cattle,
sheep and goats with Vancouver, and
his gift of them to the chiefs. It was
realistic fore-deck presentation of
an old time vessel with the animals to
life size in the midst of the crew.
Admiral Thomas Restores the Flag
The British Club courteously contri
buted a telling float which depicted
the restoration of the flag, a very ap
propriate scene for this occasion, and
one which elicited much applause aa
It went along the lLoe.
The Signing of the Reciprocity Treaty
Another very Important bit of his
tory was depicted in the signing of
the reciprocity treaty during the reign
of Kalakaua. This was fittingly con
tributed by the Chamber of Commerce.
The Honolulu Iron Works
and the Animals
By what process of astute selection
the Honolulu Iron Works picked on
the early animals of Hawaii for their
float Is not apparent And then hav
ing chosen so unwisely, however they
got the deer in with the dog and the
long headed pig, which were genuine
Hawalians, whllo the deer waa aa
much of a mallhlnl as any of us that
Is a question!
Pain's Bobtail Car
One of the very best sections was
that of transportation, put on by the
Rapid Transit, depicting the old and
the new. The first was a seedy old
hack drawn by a decrepit horse and
driven by an ancient white-haired
The second was- a genuine Pain
tram-car with all the appropriate ac
cessories, the team of mules, the

Perhaps on the whole the most pop
ular and interesting section, at least
for many of the spectators, was the
Pa-u riders. Each main Island was,
represented by a princess and a band
of attendants wearing the appro
priate colors... They rode fine horses
and of course rode well, with those
stagey bits of horsemen by-play
that always appeal to the Hawalians.
Apparently the various" princess' and
attendants were gathered up In Hono
lulu, so that they were representative
of the various Islands, not residents
of them. The Kauai princess was
particularly attractive and graceful in
purple with a maile let about her
neck, and a wreath of violets on her
