the IiUnalilo home
was informally opened ou Saturday
last by tho trustees. A notice was
inserted in one of the weeklies, but
otherwise uo publicity was given to
the affair cither in the Hawaiian or
English papers, except by means of
the ordinary news columns.
Quite a number of people were
there, but of those for whom the
House is designed the Hawaiian,
when he becomes old and indigent
there were very few. The Band
played at intervals somo excellent
music in their well-known style. A
light lunch and ice cream was served
in one of the rooms in the rear por
tion of the central building. This
.was catered for Hart Bros., who
saw that everyone got all they de
hired in this direction. His Majesty
and suite arrived about 5 o'clock,
and were received by Mr. Dole,
Chief Justice Judd, und the man
ager, Mr. II. Swinton, jr. Before
dark most of the visitors withdrew.
The following account of the build
ing may prove of interest to those of
our readers who were not there :
In driving up to the main entrance
the eye is struck with the incongru
ity of having the stables of the
Mounted Police right in front of tho
grounds, so that they arc constantly
in full view of the inmates and of
every visitor. On the slope of Punch
bowl is a small cemetery, which is
also in full view fiom any part of
the front of the building, and will,
no doubt, be quite a cheerful object
of contemplation for the aged and
Immediately after entering the
gates the road crosses a ravine
which has been filled up and a cut
ting made in the hill in front, so
that a very neat winding carriage
drive is the result. An immense
lawn is skirted b' a wide drive, and
. we arrive in front of the building.
It is of stone taken from a govern
ment quarry ou the slopes of Punch
bowl, and first opened by Mr. Lish
xnau. The order of architecture is
compesitc, to say the least, for the
main building is a plain two-storey
residence with two long wings of the
bungalow order of architecture fin
ished by a square one storey build
ing .at each end. In front of the
maiu building is an enormous Nor
man tower quite dwarling the rest of
the building by its height.
The tower and main building are
approached by eleven concrete steps
of 0 inches each in height, opening
ou a wide verandah about 12x10
feet. Folding doors open on the
main hall, to the left of which are
two offices, and behind these an
other. To the right is a large room,
30x25, to bo used as a dining and
reception room. There are two fine
roomy closets in this room. The
portrait of Lunalilo is hung in this
Then returning to the hall we go
lip-stairs. Here we fiuil four rooms,
large and well lighted, for the use of
the manager and his family. Pass
ing from this floor into the' tower wo
ascend the winding stair-case, oc
casionally giving a peep out of the
little narrow gothic windows till wo
arrive at the first platform. Then
again up the winding stair till wo
reach the second platform, 00 feet
above the ground. From hero we
have a splendid view from Wuikiki
to Kakaako, from Diamond Head to
Punchbowl, while turning round we
look up the Makikl slopes to the
ridge of Tantalus. The spot below
ns is Kewalo. The vano surmount
ing the spire is in tho shape of cross
surmounting a crown, and its tip is
about 100 feet from the surface or
tho ground. Tho lower is 11 feet
square outside measurement, and 0
feet square inside. Tho three gothic
torches which support the tower are
formed of seven stones each, each of
which weighs 1,500 lbs., aud tho
corner stones of tho cornice weigh
-',500 lbs. euch. It is calculated
that tho total weight of masonry in
tho tower is over 750 tons. The walls
of the tower arc 2 feet G inches
The walls of the central building
arc 2 feet thick, and those of the
wings 18 inches. Each wing con
tains six rooms, 12x12, in which arc
two beds, a closet Jor clothes with
shelves aud hooks, a centre piece for
a lamp in tho ceiling and a fan-light
above each door. The height of
these rooms is about 12 feet.
At the end of each wind is a large
ward 25 x 25, and 1!) l'eot high, in
which arc 10 beds, tho other iittings
being as before but commensurate
with the number of inmates. Along
the whole front and rear of the
building a verandah runs thu total
length of which is ooO leet.
From the back verandah run
three colonnades, with lattico work
sides and concrete floors. These
lead to the bath-rooms, (one at each
end) and the kitchen and store-room
(in the centre.) Tho bath-rooms arc
rittcd up as wash-rooms for clothes
with concrete floor and bath-tub and
commode. Hot and cold water arc
laid on. Each measures 23 x 12. One
fourth of tho roof is of glass to keep
the rooms warm all the time. The
kitchen and store-room are well
fitted up with tho necessary ap
pliances. They measure 10 x 20.
Away at the rear is the water
supply from a reservoir 57 x 30 and
10A- feet deep containing about
100,000 gallons fed by an ordinary
fan wind-mill pump from an artesian
well about 100 feet below tho sur
face. The sewerage is through iron
stone pipes and leads to a cistern
25 feet deep and 12 feet in diameter
on a sandv bottom.
The following odd statistics maj'
prove of interest: There arc 23
rooms in the building. The length
of the building is 275 feet. About
1,150 feet of copper gutters and 40,
000 slates have been used in its con
struction. Everything has been most
thoroughly done, and it is plastered
and hard finished throughout. It
has been 2 years and 3 months in
construction, and the contract price

It was announced in St. Andrew's
on Suudtiy that Mr. T. II. Davics
had kindly placed his house aud
grounds at the disposal of the con

noon, aud welcoming him on his re

Thk gymnasium is growing in

to make thething a complete success.
So far, although it is nearly a

will bo to be blame that we have not
the best appliances to put it out.

very generously contributed 5 gal

Sushay was All Fool's Day.
Owing, no doubt, to the sacred
character of the day on which it fell
very little practical joking was per
petrated. Still, we may inquire,
I low about that whale? It appears
that some one, seized with u desire
to lend others astray, put up a notice
on the bulletin board at the Hotel
that the Nettie Merrill had towed a
whale iuto the harbor, and that it
was alongside the wharf. Many
credulous people went down to sec
it, and now you have only to men
tion the word "whale" in sonic
places to call up one (of anger.)
Mit. Mclncrny's stock embraces
some very fine articles in tho way of
furnishing goods. The now colors
and patterns of silk hose for ladies
or gentlemen arc extremely striking.
Then the Lisle, Balbriggau, cotton
and merino hose give such a variety
of choice that to describe would be
the task of Sisyphus. Then the ele
gant dress suits and English walking
suits, shirts, collars, cuffs, neck
wear, Cartwright & "Warner's under
wear, &c, exist in such quality and
quantity that Mr. Mclnerny could
at, say, G hours' notice, furnish a
complete outfit sufficient to take a
man to Europe aud back. Lastly we
noticed the spring styles for 1883 in
straw and felt hats, which have just
reached these shores.
Tin: well now flowing in Thomas'
Square is the sixth bored by Messrs.
Barnes & McCaudless. The pipe is
of the same diameter as that in the
Palace Yard, 8g inches inside dia
meter, and the water began to flow
at -175 feet, and continued increas
ing till they had reached a depth of
500 feet, when the volume remained
steadfast. Up to 1 i.m. on Satur
day they had bored to a depth of
510 feet. The head of tho well is
27 feet above the level of the sea
and, without any cap, oranythiug of
that kind, when the boring was stop
ped and the rod lifted out of tho
pipe, the water rose to a height of
15.1 inches above the pipe in a conic
al ebullition that was extremely in
teresting. (While the rope was be
ing drawn up, the water would rise
some feet on it in a cascade of pecu
liar, filmy, prismatic-colored , drops
that was extremely pretty.) The
contractors began td put up the ap
