Pioneer Days in the
Religious Life of Lihue
(Continued from pago 2.)
vitlo Christian services sometimes
met with discouragements.
Uhen services wer.o hold in our
own homo wo would often have some
refreshments such as oranges,

About 1SS1 Sir. Paul Isenberg so
cured a large number of German
Immigrants, and to kcop them con
tented n Lutheran church and school
were provided, ltev. Itlchter was
the pastor of tho church, and Mr.
Jocrgens was schoolmaster until In
1SSS, Rev. Hans Isenberg camo to
bo pastor. The health of Mrs. Isen
berg had been very poor In Ger
many and for her sake, ho had ac
cepted this call. Mr. Isonberg's de
voted ministrations to his little par-
Jhnuary 1918. At , about tho same
time that tho Lutheran church was
established thero camo to Llhuo a
Scotch clergyman, by tho name of
John Alardlce, professing to bo a
clergyman. As ho, was pleasing and
mado himself agreeablo and as wo
wcro rather simple folk, not wlso
us serpents, though perhaps not as
harmless as doves, and did not take
the precaution of writing to tho
mainland to learn about the Hev.
Alardlce, wo engaged him to minis
ter to our spiritual needs. G. N.
Wilcox built a comfortablo parson
age, tho homo now occupied by Mr.
and Mrs. Moragno, and tho Alardlco
family arrived later. When it seem
ed tho time was ripo to perfect a
church organization tho Itov. Alar
dlco did not seem to know much
more about how to go about than
wo did, which wo thought rather
queer at tho time. Ho was oven so
perturbed tat ho gave out the same
Later, when Rev. John Hemphill
and wife, from Calvary Presbyteri
an church, San Francisco, arrived
with my father and mother, Mr.
and Mrs. Waterhouso, for a visit
to Kauai, and the name Alardlco
was mentioned, Mr. Hemphill In
quired about tho reverend gentle
man, and asking for my sprlngless
buggy, hastened to call upon him.
Mr. Alardlco was advised to go to
tho Hawaiian Board and if he prov
ed fitted for tho position, ho was
to bo ordained which wo learned ho
never had been. Ho had baptized the
children of our friends' who had to
bo 'afterward baptized by Uev. Mr.
Forbes. There was some difficulty
In getting rid of Mr. Alardlco, who
waB prone to ivo up a comfortablo
l.ouo and living and who complain
ed to G. N. Wilcox that Mr. nice
had defamed his character. Mr.
Wilcox asked him what ho thought
his character was worth, anyway!
In about 1882 there came to us
ltev. Adam Simpson and Mrs. Simp
Bon. Mr. Simpson was a preacher
and withal such a fine man that
we were very happy to feel that at

We Want Your Patronage
We don't make a sale or repair your car as though we never
expected to see you again. We do the work or we make the
sale in the hope you will be so well satisfied with both tho
work and the price that you will even go out of your way in
the future to patronize us. In other words, we treat you so
you can't help but notice that we want your trade and appre
ciate a chance to merit it.
No matter what make car you
may have we can repair it and
the job and the price will both be right

ister to us. Howover it was not
long beforo wo learned that Mr.
Simpson's health was very poor and
that ho had como to Hawaii too lato
for tho cllmato to bo of benefit to
him and in 1883 ho passed on to
claim his heavonly reward.
In 188G Colonel Spalding succeed
ed in obtaining tho services of Itov.
Mr. Walnrlght, an Episcopal clergy
man, to act as tutor and clergyman.
Mr. Walnrlght hold sorvlces on the
Sabbath in the little chapel or up
per room above tho blacksmith shop
and carpenter shop near tho Kapaa
mill, tho chimney of which still
stands as a monument. Mr. Waln
rlght very kindly camo also to Ll
huo on Sunday afternoons and held
sorvlces In what was called the
Young People's Christian Association
building, which stood where the
Illce's tennis court now stands. This
building was erected by Mother Hice
and was later moved to another
site where it served as the chucch
for tho first Christian Japanese con
gregation. I took charge of Mr. Walnright's
surplice and played tho organ nt
his services. Well do I remember
a mistake I mado before I became
familiar with tho Episcopal service.
I found myself repeating with tho
clergyman, that section from tho
prayorbook, "I acknowledge my
transgression and my sin is over
beforo mo." I was most embarrass
ed when I discovered I was making
a public confession beforo the con
gregation. Mr. Walnrlght was later
married to Miss MiUIs, sister of
Dlshop Millis, and she assisted with
tho organ at his services. These
services were discontinued when Mr.
and Mrs. Walnrlght moved to Ho
nolulu. From this time until Mr. J. M.
Lydgato arrived on Kauai thero were
no English speaking services held
In Lihue. Wo had removed to Hono
lulu on acount of tho education of
our children, returning to Llhuo on
ly in tho summery.
Lihue has witnessed many chang
es in tho years in which I have liv
ed here. After years of difficulty
in striving to develop tho spiritual
side of community life, are we as
eager today to help In the advance
ment of Christ's kingdom here In Li
hue as we should be? I will leave
Mr. Lydgate to tell you of tho or
ganization of tho Llhuo Union
church of today.
