Those who attended the Christ
tnns exercises at the Wniakea Mis
sion on Christmas live could not
but be gratified at the results shown,
Every child was neatly and pret
tily dressed, with evidence that the
bath and the comb had not been
neglected. Then there was an ap
pearance of health and happiness,
where, a year ago, there had been
disease aud sores. It is not the
purpose of this article to write up
the Christmas entertainment, or
much could be said of the pleasing
program, and the exceptionally
well rendered music.
On the last of December a year
ago, a few of the business men in
Hilo, realizing the need of radical
improvement in the moral and do
mestic conditions in Wainkea, lead-
ily and liberally responded to the
call for help in maintaining a Chris
tian worker in that portion of Hilo.
Since that time other donations
have come in from interested friends
donations of money, clothing and
reading matter. Outside of Hilo,
the only assistance has come from
the Hawaiian Board.
In the Sabbath work the Sunday
school has continued about as for
merly, if we except the adult Bible
class, which has shown a gratify
ing increase. During the past yo,ir
from 18 to 20 have been in attend
ance each Sabbath.
The average attendance of the
entire Sabbath School has been
about 68, with the exception of
baseball Sundays, when the attend
ance dropped considerably.
Sunday evening services have
been introduced. These are con
ducted by Rev. S. L. Desha and
other gentlemen from Hilo, and are
always well attended.
Every Saturday evening the
house is thrown open for a free
reading room. rue young men,
principally, take advantage of this,
aiul from thirty-five to fifty meet
und the reading tables.
A sewing class of some forty girls
meets every Tuesdoy afternoon, at
which a systematic course in sew
ing is taught.
A class in weaving meets on Fri
day afternoon. The women of
Waiakea, who are willing teach the
girls the art of manufacturing their
own Hawaiian curios, e. g., hats,
mats, fans, baskets, leis, etc. These
articles, when finished are placed
on sale at the Settlement building.
Since the fifteenth of last May
about one hundred articles have
been made and most of them sold.
The money goes back to the maker.
The object, as must be evident, is
to provider an honest employment
for these women and a means of
disposing of their goods when fin
ished. The women's class which meets
on Friday afternoon is small in
numbers, yet, who can tell, but this
may be one of the largest in its in
fluence. A few earnest mothers
meet ing together, whose object is
to carry light and purity into their
own homes, must wield an influence
that will be felt more and more as
The worker has supplied herself
with bank books, and is endeavor
ing to implant a desire to "lay aiide
for a rainy day." The results, so
far, have been small, but the object
is worthy, and will doubtless grow.
The musical rehearsals and the
class in Delsarte, always call out a
noisy but happy troupe of children.
The mellowness of their tones, and
the soft, modulated voices, speak
for themselves in nraise of Miss
Wight's skill as a musical instruc
tor. Then there is the house to house
visitiug. The worker in charge
always finds a welcome awaiting
her. A suggestion here and there
from her has awakened a desire to
keep the house and grounds tidy,
and has materially assisted the
health officer in clearing out lodg
ing places for disease germs.
A military company meets on
Wednesday and Saturday evenings
under the management of Mr. H.
T. Lake. The company numbers
twenty-four very much interested
young soldiers, who are learning
valuable lessons in promptness and
obedience to rule.
Almost the first effort put forth
last January was to fit up a dispen
sary in the Settlement building,
stocked with supplies to relieve
diseased skin, ears and eyes,
J wounds, sores and emergency Cises.
j Here the worker in charge gives
her services to all who come for
treatment. Owing to the great
need of such assistance and to the
success in relieving, or in most
cases of removing the ailments, the
work in this department has grown
rapidly. Six days in the week,
Miss Wight may be found at the
Mission wrapping bandages, apply
ing salves, etc. Often attending ns
many as twenty-six cases in a morn
ing. Since this dispensary work is
recognized as distinctly a preventa
tive of piore serious cases, there is
reason to believe that dm ing the
coming year more of the hospital
supplies can be obtained through
During the past year some twenty-
five cases have been treated in Wai
akea by the government doctor. It
is a question how many of these
cases would ever have reached the
doctor's knowledge, had not a Set
tlement worker been there to dis
cover the sickness and to report it
to him. In this way, many cases
of a contagious nature have re
ceived immediate treatment which
otherwise would have been left to
expose the public.
A few people in Hilo understand
bow great is the debt Hilo owes to
the Settlement. Those who have
business interests in Waiakea and
the water front know well that it
was through the prompt notifica-H
tion of contagious cases by the
resident worker, that the govern
ment doctor has been enabled to
render immediate treatment and to
isolate cases when necessary, thus
acting as a safeguard to Hilo.
My point in this, the money do
nated to support the Settlement, is
not alone a benevolent gift. It is
a business investment invested for
the protection of Hilo. Since filth
and disease are a menace to any
Aud while the public may well
thank the donors, whose money
made possible the placing of a So
cial Settlement worker in the neg
lected Waiakea region, the donors,
themselves can but see that their
benevolent gifts have already re
turned to them much more, in a
business way, tuan tue money ac-1
tually expended to kejp this pro- j
tective measure in force. ,
Such is the report of the work
attempted during the past twelve!
It is fitting at this time to con
sider the outlook for 1904. There
have been grave difficulties to meet
in the work which have made two ,
needs very evident for the coming 1
year. rue tirst is to procure an 1
assistant for Miss Wight; and the I
second to build a cottage in Waia
kea for the Settlement workers. ,
While the dispensary work con
sumes the workers entire forenoon,
it can be readily seen that to sup
erintend the various classes, to be
present at all the meetings, aud to
make the needed visits in the
homes, it mtibt lay a heavier burden
on Miss Wight than one lady can
profitably carry. Could a helper
be engaged, who is also a kinder
gartner, and one who could assist
in the afternoon and evening exer
cises, the work could be much
more satisfactorily and effectually :
Over a year ago, hoping to secure
assistance from the government, a
personal canvas was made of Waia
kea and vicinity, with the result
that some seventy-five children of
kindergarten age were found. The
government has not seen fit to pro
vide a kindergartner, and it looks
as if the little ones can be called in 1
from the street only when Hilo
citizens themselves provide a kin-,
dergarten for them. ;
The need of a home in Waiakea
for the workers is so evident that it
almost speaks for itself. The in
creased influence over the people; 1
the saving ol energy on the part of1

the workers for this ride back and
forth to Hilo is tiresome; and the
assurance of a home of her own,
where she is in no danger of carry
ing contagion into another's family
are but a few of the reasons for re
garding a Settlement home in Wai
akea as a necessity.
