BOARDING SCHOOL FAIR FINANCIAL SUCCESS
Financially, socially, artistically and otherwise, the limit, fair and
concert given at the Hilo Hoarding School on Thanksgiving Day was
a grand success. The returns and generous patronage by the- public of
the various features of the day's entertainment were a surprise to those
in charge. ,
Hut the object was m the interest of good cause, namely, lifting the
debt from the school incurred in the construction of a new educational
building. The crowds gathered early, and the ladies in charge of the
various booths vied with each other in making their respective tables
and counters as attractive as possible. It was the best patronized fair
ever held in Hilo and the total proceeds amounted to $1,461.95 The
expenses were not great, as most of the articles sold were donated by
friends or made within the school.
The Hawaiian woodwork exhibit proved the most popular and was in
charge of Mrs. Clare Hitchcock, 'Mrs. Titos. E. Cook, Miss N. Pomeroy
and Miss Nina Maby. Here were displayed every variety of Hawaiian
wood, polished, in the rough state and ornamented by burnt designs.
The Art Gallery contained reproductions from the old masters, many of
which were ornamented with Hawaiian wood frames, highly polished.
Nearly all of the subjects were sold before the close of the fair. Miss
M. F. Potter, Mrs. Gumey and Miss Ruth Richardson had charge of
the art collection.
Hawaiian curios booth was a popular table, and nearly every visitor
carried away some neatly devised object of Hawaiian handiwork. The
ladies in charge were Mrs. Rowland, Mrs. Si'.'insen, Mrs. N. K. Lyman,
Mrs. Enoch Brown, Mrs. Ewaliko, Mrs. King, Mrs. II. Akin and Miss
Chong. The fancy work was in charge of Mrs. II. J. Lyman, Miss
Howard and Miss Kalci Ewaliko. Here were displayed the choicest
embroidery, drawn work and other articles to please the feminine eye.
The flower stand was in charge of Mrs. Wm. Weight, and a corps of
able assistants, iiicludiug Misses Catherine Westervelt, Edna Curtis,
Lizzie Vannatta, Kuulei Hapai, Alice Weight and Harry Hapai.
Home made candy, done up in neatly designed boxes, proved a pop
ular attraction for old and young alike This table was presided over by
Misses Esther Lyman, Harriet Hapai and Amy Hill. Ice cream was
served on tables on the veranda, and ilfctv a continual crowd seeking
cooling refreshment. The young larics in charge were Misses Clara
Shipman, Trowbridge, Masayo Alakavyi and Mrs. Nakapualn.
Coffee was served by Mrs. Bert Loebenstein, Mrs. Morehead, Mrs.
Wm. J. Stone, Miss Sarah Canario, Annie Chalmers and Bessfe Searle.
The lemonade booth was presided over by Misses Franc Eaton, Ilauua
Akamu and Anita Canario.
The luau and pot supper were the principal featuies of the day's enter
tainment and were generously patronized. Every thing served was
characteristically Hawaiian and the feast of rarebits was said to have
been one of the best ever given at a public affair.
The side show described as "The Land of the Mikado" under the
personal supervision of Rev. Sokabe, drew an interested audience, who
witnessed a war drama enacted by pupils from the Honouut Japanese
Boarding School. The exhibition wasof a high order.
The principal attraction in the evening was the concert given in the
large assembly hall of the main building.
The chorus c( girls, consisting of Misses Kalei Ewaliko, Kuulei
Hapai, Sarah Mahaiula, Mercy Akatt and Mrs. M. M. Springer, sang
and enacted " 1. Charming Young Fellow." Miss Kalei Ewaliko sang
the solo part in an attractive manner and the chorus responded effec
tively. Mrs. Chas. Siemsen had the training of the chorus.
Mrs. J. T. Lewis acted as pianist throughout the evening and render
ed in her usual excellent style "Persian Leid" by Burmesiter. Mrs. A.
G. Curtis, in her inimitable manner, gave a humorous monologue en
titled "The Feet Behind the Curtain" in which a pair of mislaid boots
plays a leading role. Alvin Keech assisted as a hotel bell-boy.
Mrs. Louise Hapai charmed an appreciative audience with a contralto
solo, and later sang Annie Laurie. Mrs. R. T. Moses was heard in a
violin solo, an instrument on which she excels. The Japanese sword
drill by eight boys and eight girls from the Honouut Japanese School
was interesting. The Karaehameha quintette, consisting of W. H.
Beers, Ben H. Brown, Enoch Brown and E. Namohala, assisted by C. E.
King sang a medly of Hawaiian songs, which was novel and catchy.
The medly arrangement was the work of Mr. King and was most popu
lar with the audience. The last number on the program was the hit
of the evening, the "Floradora Sextette," participated in by six young
ladies in costume and six young gentlemen. The singing was well
rendered and the acting realistic. The idea was worked up by Mrs. J.
T. Lewis after much painstaking effort. Those who took part were:
Misses Akau, Hapai. Kaihcuui, Akamu, and Ewaliko. Messrs. Rose,
Victor, Baker, Brickwood and Beers.
The proceeds of the entire day's work amounted to $1,461.95, which
together with subscriptions promised, leaves a balance of $2,247,11
against the cost of the improvements which agregate $18,263.51. The
detailed receipts from Thanksgiving Day are as follows:

New Year's Races at Hilo.
The Hawaii Jockey Club have determined that New Year's Day shall
not go unobserved, so far as sports are concerned. Plans' are now on
foot to arrange an attractive program of racing events which will be
equal to any heretofore seen at IIoolulu Park. Albert Homer has pro
mised to bring in his string of seven racers from Kukaiau, and there is
other racing stock under training already at the track, sufficient to
guarantee a fine day's sport. J. D. Easton, secretary of the Jockey
Club, will later announce the program and purses.

Ten Years of Sugar.
The following is the sugar production of the Territory by Islands for
the pastteu years. Only once, in 1903, was this year's crop exceeded.
That this year's crop was not the banner crop was due to the falling oft"
on Hawaii, due, partly at least to the ravages of the leaf hopper:
