Dedication Without Champagne.
There will be no champagne wasted in the dedication of Mooheau
Hall on New Year's Day. Admiral Beckley has so expressed himself
and the change is made out of respect to the ladies who are opposed to
such perfunctory ceremonies. On this account the program has bceii
somewnat cnangeu. 1 ne Aunural was quite indignant with the face
tious remarks appearing in another paper, which he regarded as an at
tempt to belittle him iu the public eye.
"I have half a mind to throw the whole thing up," was the Admiral's
remark on reading the article referred to. "I have 110 intention of ap
pearing in evening dress suit with my medals, for it would not be ap-
proprittte. My daughter ha long been a social leader in Honolulu, but
this occasion will b,e her introduction for the first time to Hilo society.
There will be no bottle of champagne broken in the dedication, as I have
concluded such a ceremony is not in keeping with the opening of a pub
lic hall. . (
"My present idea is to have the Hilo band present and possibly a
Hawuiian quintette club to furnish music for the occasion. Mr. Rich
ards, chairman of the Park Board, will preside and introduce the speak
ers. There will be a presentation speech by myself, after which some
one will accept the Pavilion 011 behalf of the public. Rev. S. L. Desha
will make a fqv remarks in Hawaiian and offer a prayer. The affair
will be simple but intpresstve, and I hope the people of Hilo do not re-'
gard the ceremonies as an exhibition or show."
The main features of the auto 'parade, Hawaiian pa-u riders for which
priy.es are to be givent will be the same as heretofore announced. This
Committee on Finance is Geo. C Beckley, who has likewise personally
undertaken to decorate the hall. The refreshments will be in charge of
I. E. Ray, and N. C. Willfoug will be floor manager iu charge of the,
States Mvniti Pnnetpllnrmn flu.
