The work of the convention was
inaugurated with devotidnal exer
cises last Friday morning. The
delegates from Honolulu were called
and a number of them made brief
addresses. Rev. Ir. Scudder made
an inspiriting talk, and from his
first words his magnetic personality
had a great influence o"n the work.
He proposed as the watchword of
the convention: "Union of all races
at this meeting for the attainment
of brotherhood in Christ." His
remarks awakened deep enthusiasm
in all the delegates. Following,
rcv Turner made
t response em-
I phasi.ing the points set forth by
! Mr Scu(Uler. He told llOW they
I were workimr to this end in kohala.

Rev. C. E. Shields discussed the
same topic and hoped to see the
same plan adopted by the pastors of
Hilo. He proposed the organiza
tion of a local ministerial associa
tion to meet monthly, and. believed
it would result in the more effective
co-operation 01 tiie entireties,
C. W. Hill spoke ill detail of other
Lways to promote unity of effort, and
Rev, da Silva said the Portuguese
Church was anxious for co-operation.

i ,1 , ,
delegates. The articles of the con
stitution were read and adopted ope
by one, a basis being reached ou
which all the churches of all 11a-.
tionalities could unite and work as
one. In this work' the most liberal
sentiments prevailed, each nation
ality seeming to be anxious to fore
go the most in order to find com
mon ground. Those who talk
about the anti-foreign feeling among
the Hawaiians do not know what
they are talking about, aujl perhaps
have shown little inclination to meet
the Hawaiian, half way. A witness
to the proceedinge of the Hawaiian
church leaders on this Island would
see that with them at least there is
no anti-foreign feeling. This spirit
characterized all the meetings.
The reports from the individual
churches showed all to be in fairly
good condition. Some showed
notable advances, others were hold
ing their own and in only one or
two instances was there a decline.
Friday evening a public meeting
was held in the Foreign Church.
Addresses were made by Rev.
Timotco, Rev. Thwing and Rev.
At the Saturday evening session
a paper was read by Rev. Curtis E.
Shields ou "Cooperation in the
work for Christ." Like everything
that Mr. Shields does, this paper
was Clearly thought out and care
fully prepared. He explained the
advantages of cooperation and the
large economies resulting therefrom
in all lines. He pointed out the
necessity for personal work and
united effort in behalf of the people
outside of the church. The paper
was generally discussed by the
Chinese, Japanese, Portuguese,
Hawaiian and English delegates.
A genuine babel of languages flew
auout. On Saturday afternoon and
Monday further reports from
churches were heard.
Sunday morning a series of rally
services were held in all the churches
of the city. Rev. Mr. Scudder
preached to a large congregation in
the Foreign Church. At the Haili
Church Rev. Timoteo and Rev. O.
II. Gulick preached in Hawaiian.
Rev. Mr. Thwing and Messrs. Mo
, TT . , . - - ,
and U held services at the Chinese
church, taking in five new members,
In the afternoon services were held
at the Japanese church, communion
being conducted by Rev. O. II.
Gulick and preaphing by Rev. D.
Sunday evejiing at the Haili
Church union service was held.
The program was in many lang
uages. The house was packed.
lThe music was furnished by the
! clwirs from the various churches,
j I e Waiakca settlement and the
Boarding school also contribured
songs. Scripture reading and short
. , 1 ., t , ,
talks were heard .,., the English ,
Hawaiian, Portuguese, Chinese and
1 Japauese languages by Messrs.
Shields, Desha, da Silva, Scudder,
Thwing and Gulick.
Monday, the convention resumed
its labors, 'discussing the erection of
parsonages and the financial condi
tion of the Hawaiian Hoard. So
far this year the debt of the Board
has been increasing at the rate of '
$2100 per month. The debt now 1
reaches nearly the $io.odo-mark. I
The delegates resolved to go home
and labor hard to wipe out this debt.
Monday afternoon the assembly ad
journed while the Sunday School
Association was in session. Reports
wercheard from all over the Island
showing a growing and healthy con
dition in the Sunday School work.
Tuesday an examination was held
for applicants for licenses to preach.
The following passed splendid ex
aminations and were granted
licenses: S. L. Kawelo, Mo Man
Wing, U Cho Ping, S. Sifkabe, T.
Inouwe and N. Washiyama. Rev.
E.G.' da Silva was elected a per
manent member of the Association.
Wednesday.'the subjects discussed
were the support of pastors and
Foreign and Home Missions. In
the afternoon a delegation went out
to I lonomu to hold a meeting which
was conducted in four languages.
Mr. Scudder and Washiyama spoke
in Japanese, Mr. Gulick in Ha
waiian, Mr. da Silva in Portuguese
and'Mr. Twiug in Chinese.
Volcano Komi a nil Knumniia
The people nre ready for improve
ments any place at any time and
the quicker the better. But there
was one spot which Governor Car
ter promised should have immediate
attention and since his visit it has
made great strides for the worse.
This is upper Volcano road and the
necessity for repairs in this high
wav is emphasized by the presence
of a large party of tourists, who
will never forget the jolting they
get on their way to the Volcano
House. The heavy rains that fell
soon after Governor Carter's visit
plowed new furrows in upper Vol
cano road and made it indeed a pic
turesque spot which will not escape
the eye and the finer sensibilities of
any person who drives o;er it in
any vehicle besides a palanquin.
It was the opinion of the Gover
nor when he inspected the road
that he could scrape together
enough money to fix it up. He
assured the people in Olaa that he
would press the proper button as
soon as he reacned Honolulu and
that somebody would do the rest.
Whether the button hasbeen pressed
or not the road is worse than it ever
Another spot where travel and
traffic is impeded to the great bene
fit of the blacksmith and wagon
makers is the upper Kaumuna
stretch. The Governor inspected
this road from the back of a good
saddle horse and yet could not full
to see the necessity for spending a
slice of the loan bill upon it at
once. Upon this road of boulders
and lava scraps, horse shoes disa p
near like snow balls in the sun.

last legislature for $10,000 for this
llie loan bill was tapped by the
road. Its early expenditure would '
I not only greatly facilitate business
up Kaumaua way, but it would add '
to the quantity of "circulating
medium" in this vicinity, which is
needed almost as badly as rain.

Honolulu, Match 14. The
Board of Agriculture and Forestry
has received news of the arrival of
a shipment of cuttings of Bluefield
bananas, the first to arrive here after
considerable delay since Commis
sioner Jared Smith began asking lor
them. A number were spoiled on
the journey herp, but it is though
that there rae about a hundred good ,
The cuttings will all be used by
the authorities to propagate more
cuttings. An order was sent some
time ago for 500 cuttings and this
number could well be used As it
is the hundred now 011 hand will
probably produce a thousand, 'and
when there are a thousand on hand,
some distributing will be done.
The Bluefiels -variety of bananas
is much superior to most if not all
of those grown here, and it is the
intention to propagate and introduce
the better variety, with a view to
encouraging the banana industry,
Commissioner Smith and the mem

regard the introduction of the Blue
