The members nf the First Foreign
Church met last Wednesday night
at the church to hear the re ports of
the Treasurer, and other officers of
the organization. Treasurer Sever
ance reported an indebtedness of
S1300, which had been standing for
some time, nnd which was liquid
ated by popular subscription among
a number of the substantial num
bers of the church. All the former
officers were re-elected and com
mittees appointed for the coming
Rev. C. IS. Shields, gave an in
teresting report on the work of the
past year, which follows:
As pastor of the First Foreign
Church I would submit the follow
infi report of the work of the year:
The work has been maintained
in all ol its branches throughout
the year, and much of it is
fully pluced before you in the sev
eral reports already presented.
At le.ist one preaching service
has been held each S.ibbath. Our
average attendance at morning ser
vice has been 123. The largest
attendance at any regular service
was Jnn. 10, 1904, at the time of
our first comunion. The smallest
attendance was 80, on June 10, and
was the result in part of a rainy
Sabbath. Leaving out of consid
eration the first few Sabbaths, when
the novelty of a strange minister
tended to increase the attendance,
our present record cf attendance
compares favorably with the atten
dance at any time during the year.
Considering the large decrease of
our English population during the
past twelve months, the mainte
nance of our average congregation
may be considered encouraging.
The evening congregation is more
fluctuating, for the months of July
and August the evening services
were discontinued. The average
attendance ( during the year was
103. The minimum was 47, on
April 17 and June 26, and the
maximum 137 on March 20. The
occasional praise services have
ranged from 185 to 200 in atten
dance. About one-half of the even
ing audience, during the school
year, is from the Hilo Boarding
Concerning our morning service
I have but little to suggest. I am
gratified to sec an increasing num
ber from the Sunday School remain
to the church services. Last Sab
bath thirty of the 136 persons at
the church service, were Sabbath
School scholars. This number may
be still increased, and in this matter
the cooperation of parents and
kindly influence of Sunday School
teachers is most desirable. Let me
also urge our people to be continu
ally vigilant to make strangers wel
come with a hospitality such as you
would extend in your own homes.
Phis may be made one source of
the church's influence with the oc
casional church attendant.
The case ol our evening service
is not so encouraging. It ought to
be the means of attracting a consid
erable class of young people, and
of those who are not deeply inter
ested in religious matters. But it
is difficult to attract an outside ele
ment without a stronger support
from among our own people. I
commend this matter to your con
sideration and your interest.
The mid-week prayer meeting
has had an average attendance of
18. The highest rate of attendance
was maintained during the months
of April, May and June, while the
average has been exceeded but
three times during the past three
mouths. Despite the various dis
tractions attending the week of
prayer, there was only one meeting
at which the attendance fell below
that of the corresponding meeting
one year ago.
The boys society for study of
Bible and Mission characters, has
had an attendance of from 15 to 20,
-been doing much excellent work.

It has been a busy year in be

ditions with which I found myself
surrounded. It has been a pleas

trust that for pastor and people it
has been mutually profitable. I
have given you a summary of those
things which may be reduced to
statistics, but the real life and work
of a church cannot be mathematic
ally computed. It must find ex
pression in spiritual terms. With
grateful appreciation of the very
many kindly cjurtesies received
from this people, and with earnest
desire to counsel and cooperate
with you for the wellbeing of the
church which we love, I am

Novel Production of Oxygon.
One of the new methods of pro
ducing oxygen consists in distilling
liquefied air, the different boiling
points of the oxygen and nitrogen
making it comparatively easy to
separate the two gases. The curious
property of condensing gases that
charcoal possesses has suggested to
Dr. James Dewas an even simpler
process, and he finds that cheap
oxygen may be had by making the
charcoal absorb air at a low temp
erature and then expelling the
oxygen by slowly raising the temp
erature. At 165 degrees C below
zero 20 degrees above the liquefy
ing pointof air the charcoal be
comes saturated with air in ten
minutes, storing up six liters for
every fifty grammes. On gently
heating, the first liter of gas given
off contains 18 percent, of oxygen,
the second 30 per cent., tlu third
53 per cent., the fourth 72 per
cent., the fifth 79 per cent., and
the sixth 84 per cent.

Friends of II. L. Williams,
Homer L. Ross, J. W. Mcintosh
nnd L. W. Hnworth, formerly of
Hilo, will be interested in hearing
of their progress in the develop
ment of oil in Northern Alberta,
Canada. These gentlemen have
organized n conlpany known as the
Egg Lake Oil Co., Ltd., with head
quarters at Edmonton, Alta.
The following account of the
enterprise is taken from the
Edmonton Bulletin, of recent date:
The Egg Lake Oil Co., Limited,
is the name of a new company be
ing floated in Edmonton for the
purpose of acquiring and develop
ing property in the Egg Lake dis
trict about thirty miles northwest
of town, which has given indica
tions of petroleum. The capitaliz
ation of the company is fixed at
Si 00,000 and the certificate of in
corporation was issued in Rcgina
yesterday. A large portion of the
stock of the new company will be
put on the market in the near
future nnd the proceeds used to
develop the property.
The company is being floated by
Mr. H. L. Williams, a California
gentleman who came here some
three months since and has spent
the time looking into the oil indi
cations in the district indicated.
He is now satisfied that the indica
tions are most promising and is
confident of the., success of the
Mr. Williams was first led to in
vestigate the rumored indications
of oil in the district by reports
which reach him in the States. On
visiting the district he found oil
oozing from the out-croppings of
the .strata near the lake and from
the general appearance of the land
and the slope of the oil bearing
strata, calculated that there must
be a large deposit deeper down and
back from the out-crop. The ap
pearances were very similar to the
oil fields of California where he
spent many years and acquired his
The samples of the oozing oil in
dicated that it came from an asphalt
base and was heating, but not illu
minating petroleum. The illumi
nating oil has parafine base.
The plan on which it is proposed
to operate is that pursued success
fully in the Summerland district of
California by sinking wells a dis
tance back from the deposit, to tap
the strata deeper in the earth where
the oil is clear and where there is
apparently a good pressure forcing
the oil upward to the surface.
It is proposed to begin opera
tions first on what is known as the
Perras ptoperty, the southwest
quarter sec. 30, township 56, lange
25. Should these prove successful
the company have already secured
options on a large area of laud in
the district, which will enable
them to extend the field and thor
oughly exploit it.
