MOOHEAU HALL FORMALLY
DEDICATED TO THE PDBLIC
It was a few minutes after 10 o'clock when E. N. Holmes, President
of the Board of Trade, called to order the representatives and large audi
ence which gathered to witness the dedication of Mooheau Hall yester
day morning. The pavilion had been draped with American, Hawaiian
and the colors of all nations, and palms and royal yellow blossoms were
in profusion about the colums supporting the roof. The decorations were
under the supervision of Mrs. E. D. Baldwin. The Hilo band was in
attendance and discoursed sweet music (hiring the intermissions in the
program. The new composition of Prof. Joaquin Carvalho, "Mooheau
March," was publicly rendered for the first time, and received an hearty
encore. The music is catchy and appropriate. President Holmes pre
sided during the dedicatory exercises, and in a few words introduced
Admiral Becklcy, to whom the public were indebted for the magnifice t
pavilion. The Admiral arose amidst prolonged applause, and in a brief
speech presented to Hilo the Mooheau Hall, which was responded to on
behalf of the community by Hon. Chas. M. LeBlond, whose remarks
were complimentary and expressed the thanks of Hilo for the generous
spirit which prompted the gift and the warm place which the giver occu
pied in the hearts of every loyal Hilo citizen.
Admiral Bcckley's speech is as follows:
"Friends and Citizens of Hilo: I feel this day the Greatest uleasure of mv life in
being able to demonstrate my affection and friendship for the citizens of the beautiful
city of Hilo by opening to the public Mooheau Park, thus providing a place of re
creation not only for the grown people, whose friendship I have enjoyed for many
years, but more especially for the children. I hone, now that n start has been made
towards beautifying Hilo, that not only your citizens, but all parties in the vicinity,
win assist 111 me nuaiuuieni 01 iuui great luiurc i oeneve is 111 store lor lino.'
Rev. S. I. Desha acted as interpreter, for the benefit of the large num
ber of Hawaiians present. At the close of Mr. LeBlond's remarks, he
approached Admiral Beckley aucl publicly extended the hand of fellow
ship on behalf of Hilo to the doughty Admiral. One of the surprises
of the occasion was the presentation to Admiral Beckley by President
Holmes of the Board of Trade of a set of engrossed resolutions. The
scroll was enclosed in a case and tied with a large yellow ribbon, bril
liantly illuminated, and expressed the appreciation of the business men
for the gift of the pavilion. The document was embellished with the
Hawaiian coat of arms in colors, under which was, the motto, "Kuu
Ai'na Aloha," which signified Mr. Beckley's love for his country. It
bore the autograph signatures of the President and Secretary, and is
much prized by the Admiral. The text of the resolution is as follows:
To the Honorable George C. Beckley:
Greeting' The Executive Committee of the Board of Trade of Hilo convened in
