HONOLULU'S GREAT MIDWINTER FLORAL FIESTA
Honolulu, Feb. 21. The Floral Parade of the Midwinter Fiesta is n
thine or the past. It passed In a bewildcriug display of color, under a
sky that was overcast and in a light that was cool and soft nnd gray an
ideal light to make pictures of the pageant that will live in memory lor
years to come.
"The day was a perfect day." There were clouds rolling up from
the hills, with glimpses of blue sky between the cloud masses, and so
there was a play of light and shadow bu the beautiful decorated auto
mobiles and carriages, and upon the pa-u riders, and upon the gay
dresses of the women and children. ' Nature is always kindly to the
The citv was in tune with nature. Honolulu and the people of Hono
lulu were at their best. From carl morning there was the tooting of
horns of the motor wagons, and the whirr oi wheels as some four or six
in hand, elaborately decorated, went, whirling up street to the place of
assembly at Thomas Square? Thin 4a bevy 6f pa-u riders, with flying
skirts in rainbow colors would dash by, and a yelling crowd of cowboys
would follow iu swilt pursuit of them alonfe the streets. Crowds of
barefooted boys, and of boys and gjrls in holiday dress, greeted each
one that dashed by with shrill yells and whistles, and were greeted
again by the good-natured paraders.
The parade was a success. The day left nothing to be desired, the
people were in tune with it, and the climate was upon its best behavior
as, indeed, it is at most times. Abd the midwinter fiesta is a thing
established in Honolulu. After so auspicious & beginning, the Promo
tion Committee and the men who are engaged iu the building of the
city of the future will not let the celebration lapse. Advertiser.
Prospects For Public Buildings.
A private letter from a reliable source in Washington says that there
is an increased chance of the passage of public building appropriations
this session, and that Senator Warren' has introduced in the Senate, both
the bills for Hawaii which Kuhip introduced some time ago in the
House. One provides Sqoo.000 for a site and building in Honolulu and
the other $150,000 for a simitar purpose in Hilo.
According to the letter referred to, there is increased activity in the
building appropriations line, and it is quite likely that a bill will go
through this session, instead of being passed by as was thought would
happen a short time ago. The letter also says that if a bill is passed,
Hawaii will be in it, though perhaps for less sums than those mentioned
in the bills introduced.
Warren introduced both bills in the Senate on January 31. He is
second member of the Senate committee on Public Buildings, and a very
influential member of the upper house. Star.
Delegate Kuhio Seeks Denomination.
Delegate Kuhio is out Jor anothefterm in Congress. Letters received
from the national capital make it appear certain that he will be after the
Republican nomination again, in the coming campaign. In fact he is
said to be already at work and to have asked friends here to line up his
forces, so that he will be in a position to capture the convention.
Kubio's present term, his second, was generally supposed to be the
last be would try for. In fact at the time when be secured the nomina
tion last time, with the support of the Robertson Wing of the Republican
party and the local organization generally, it was understood that he
was pledged to the support of Robertson this time. However this may
be, Kuhio is after the job again and will go before the next Republican
convention for a third term.
Governor Carter, who was understood to have aspirations to run, is
now regarded as out of the race. Star.
