night the S. S. Maul arrived in port direct
from Honolulu with island mail and regis

mediately took up the matter with Mr.
Geo. W. Carr, Assistant Superintendent
R, M. S. at Honolulu, and the following
reply was received this mail, showing
that eerything possible has been done
at this cud of the line:
"Your favor of April and in regard to

the Hawaii Island mails were withheld
froui the S. S. Gaelic, and dispatched via
S. S. Enterprise leaving three, days afterwards.
On the recent arrival of the Siberia and
Sonoma, March 29 and 30 respectively,
without any Hawaii mail (excepting
registered matter), I immediately wrote
the San Praucisco service again, via S. S.

The guests who climbed the narrow
stairs of ugly, prosaic Sprcckcls' Hall on
Monday evening realize as perhaps never
before that Hilo lies at the cross-roads of
the Pacific where the Orient and the Oc
cident meet. For they were ushered Into
a theatre street in Yokohama, where gor
geous banners drooped from slanting
poles, where gay Hues of flags stretched
overhead, where feathery bamboo and
pinky cherry blossoms lent their beauty,
and painted lanterns gleamed softly
everywhere. At one end of the hall a
gray toriied gateway raised its simple
grace, and behind it steps led upward to
a Japanese house, whose gold paneled
paper walls hid n glimpse of formal gar
dens. A real Japanese house, for at 9
o'clock the golden panels of the doorway
slid aside, and out came the master and
mistress in clinging crapes and shining
silks, with two-toed stockings and lac
quered sandals, to descend the steps and
welcome the motley throng of Orientals
marching in stately procession to greet
them. Not a wholly Japanese proces
sion, though that element predominated,
for the line was led by the Grand Sultan
of Turkey, and blent with kimono and
obi could be seen the peacock feather of
the son of Heaven, the red button of a
mandarin, baggy Korean trousers, the
jeweled headdress of a Cantonese bride,

hind him, and even a stray Cossack from
Manchuria with his two-edged sword
bared for action.
And after they had all "kow-tow"ed
and "salaam"ed and koni cha"cd and
"ho-man"cd,nnd the master and mistress
had lead a kaledioscopic grand march
through the hall, there burst through the
sliding doors upon the stage a most mar
velous figure a daimayo of old Japan in
crimson satin and gold embroidery, with
a coiffure that stood up fiercely like a
unicorn horn in front, and drooped
meekly like a hobby horse tail behind.
He in a speech of purest Japanese an
nounced there would first be the graceful
geisha dance of Ninpou and then the
strauge contortions of the foreign devils
called the German. And after, to the
shrill strumming of the sauisuu and the
weird notes of the geisha, the pretty
miko had pointed their mitteued toes and
waved their rose-petal palms and turned
themselves generally into a cross between
an animated corkscrew and a languishing'
butterfly; then the "barbarian" music
struck into "ragtime" and the barbarian
And all this scene, where one seemed
to "hear the East a calliu'," had been
conjured up just because the Hilo Co
tillion Club had willed to say "sayonara''
instead of plain good-bye to two of its
departing and best-loved members, Mr.
and Mrs. A. C. McKenney. The artistic
taste and skill of Miss Entitle Peck and
Mr. T. C. Ridgway, assisted by the deco
rating committee, had contrived the
beauty of the hall, and the club mem
bers, by their hearty co-opcratiou in the
matter of costume, had completed the
picture. The affair was truly Oriental,
from the odd black-lettered invitations
sent out the week before to the charming
little Chinese lantern dance programs,
and even in a measure to the "koukou,"
for Mr. Schoeu, under the diiectiou of the
ladies of the Refreshment Committee,
had the "barbarian" ices served in deli
cate Japanese bowls, and there was Chi
nese tea aud Chinese refreshments in the
punch room. It was altogether one of
the prettiest aud most unique of the
many pretty and unique afla.rs given by
the club, and the President, Mr. Day,
and the various committees, may well be
congratulated on its success, while the
club members in their costumes, that
varied from the severe elegance of Mr.
and Mrs. McKenney aud the oarbaric
splendor of Mr. Ridgway to the suave
guilelessness of Dr. Stow, made pictures
long to be remembered. Theonly shadow
on the scene was the fact that it meant
good-bye to two people who have entered
so largely into the civic and social life of
Hilo, and whose going away will mean
so large a loss. Hut their friends are go
ing to believe that they take with them
memories that will some day draw them
back to Hilo, and that when the Falls of
Clyde sails away we need' not say "sayo
nara," but only "auf wlederscheu."
Hllollp Would llnvo Thorn Drill at
One of Hilo's most ardent admirers of
the National Gund of Hawaii suggests
that the Territory could be advertised
most advantageously by sending Com
pany F to St. Louis, to take part in the
competitive drill during the World's Fair.
The gentleman argues that the funds
available for an Hawaiian exhibit are so
small that such an exhibit would lie rele
gated to some obscure comer, aud the
money expended literally thrown away.
On the other hand he claimes that the
splendid drill, the fine form and physique
of the members of Company P would at
tract the notice of countless thousands
who could not fail to be Interested 'in a
country that produces such splendid
specimens of humanity. He also argues
that the government of the United States
would furnish transportation, that the
cost of niaintainance at St. Louis would
be nominal, and that the surplus of funds
subscribed for this purpose would help to
provide llilo with an armoury. Sub
scribers to the "Hawaiian" World's Fair
exhibit are reguested to kindly cogitate.
Last Sunday morning a pair of Hilo's
"gentry" one of whom has the reputa
tion of possessing more knowledge of the
prize ring than of praise services, and
who is supposed to be able to locate the
solar plexus of an antagonist with greater
celerity than a preacher could define a
means for his soul's salvation, proceeded
to enjoy Easter Day in the country, in a
manner most congenial to themselves,
and in accordance with their own ideas
of an honest, sober and upright life. In
the evening, after having acquired a jag
of considerable dimensions, this pair of
unwotthies returned with their hired rig
to the City Stables, whose genial pro
prietor met them with smiles of welcome
and a pean of gratitude, to find that his
property had not been damaged to any
great extent. The pugilistic gent, un
willing to curtail the days pleasure ex
pressed a desire to drive out to Olaa and
return by moonlight, and endeavored to
overcome the proprietors objections by a
show of fisticuffs. A couple of strenuous
arguments on the part of the owner of
the vehicle were necessary to quell his
aspirations and desires, and there are
signs and tokens upon his rugged coun
tenonce that Monday's dawn found him
a sadder if not a wiser man. More power
and long life to ye, Brughclli I Hilo
needs you as un earnest advocate of the
proprieties, not only in public works, but
in private conduct.

The Enstor Social.
The Easter social held at the First For
eign Church parlors Tuesday evening
was a great success socially, as well as
financially. The rooms were beautifully
decorated with palms, ferns and bright
colored flowers. Iu one corner were'
tables covered with dainty articles for
sale. On one was a barn yard scene con
sisting of a hen house and various do
mestic fowls. On another were candied
eggs, little chicks just coming forth from
the shell, while other shells were beauti
fully painted with scenes from Hilo,
the work of Miss Ewaliko, who displayed
real talent in her work. On a third table,
which stretched across the room was
loaded the main feature of the evening
During the fore part of the eveuiug a
most Interesting and enjoyable program
was well rendered. The solo by Miss
Florence Hill proved to the Hilolte that
he is uot to be left without a vocalist after
all. It is hoped that Miss Hill will sing
more often to us in the future. Proceeds
of entertainment amounted to $40. Mes
dames Terry, Richardson and Lindsay
were in charge of the supper.
