J One of the most pleasant incidents of
Governor Carter's visit to Hilo was the
luntl tendered at the residence of Rev. S
L. Desha, Tuesday evening, under the
auspices of the Aloha Alna Society. The

basement beneath the new parsonage, and
was given as an especial token of the
good will of the Hawaiian citizens toward
the new administration, of which Gover
nor Carter is the head. The guests began
to arrive before 5 o'clock, and when the
order was given to be seated at the tables
the compiity numbered over eighty.
Tile dcllcicies served were a tribute to
the skill of those who had prepaicd the
feast. When the last pudding had been
sacrificed Rev. Desha called on Governor
Carter, who responded gracefully his
acknowledgments and his appreciation of
the courtesies and hospitality extended
him by the Hawaiian citizens. Ilrief
speeches were also made by Secretary
Atkinson, J. T. llakcr, Philip Peck, Sena

native songs. The sentiments expressed
in speech and song found responsive

given a surprise in the way of a splendid
musical program, rendered by a musical

said that such a musical organization was
as much entitled to legislative recogni
