THIS DAY'S DOINGS.
Oalitt Lodge, No. 1 K. of P. 7:30.
Bethel Prayer Meeting, at 7 :30.
Fort St. Church, Prayer Meeting
St. Andrew's Cathedral, usua'
services, at 7 :30.
were held in the Y. M. C. A. build
ing on Saturday night. The wlioli
of the .rooms were lighted and
tin own open, except the unfinished
gymnasium room down-stairs. Tin
public were Invited to walk up tin
broad stair-case and enter the assem
bly room, where scats had been pro
vided for 400. Round the walls?
were hung those volcano pictures,
by Mr. Furncau.v, which we have
before described. At the end of the
loom was a dais on which weic seat
ed the President, Chief-Justice
Judd, the late Picsidcnt, A. Pratt,
Dr. Hyde, Dr. Damou, J. A. Cru
zan, T. H. D.ivies and P. C. Jones,
jr. Punctually at the appointed
time the exercises commenced with
a brilliant duet on the piano, by
Mts. T. II. Davics and Miss II.
Dickson. The choir then sang the
hymn, "Jesus shall reign," and Dr.
Damon led the Dedicatory Prayer.
The choir, accompanied by Mr. M.
II. Jones on the piano, rendered the
anthem, "Hark! hmkl my soul!"
The acoustics properties of the build
ing must be good, as the blending
of the voices was not marred in the
slightest degree. Then the Build
ing Committee, through its Presi
dent, Mr. P. C. Jones, jr., made a
report as follows:
"This is the final report of the
Building Committee, consisting of
Messrs. J. B. Aiherton, C. M.
Cooke and my&clf. I would like to
present a view of some of tho diffi
culties under which we labored, for
in many of them we were lnisumler
sti.o.'l or misicj rosenle I. Still not
vvithstandiug the difficulties wc have
the building now sufficiently advanc
ed for our woik to go on in it. The
selection of a Siile was the first diffi
culty, and many delays occurred.
Then we had our difficulties in get
ting plans, finally a rough outline by
Mr. C. M. Cooke was shaped by
Mr. Moore, and the plans drawn as
they now are. Then the day of
opening the tenders had to be post
poned, niicl when the lowest tender
was known we had to tiim our plans
here and there to make it meet our
funds. The contract signed called
for tho completion of the building
by the 22nd December, and here it
is only finished now. Still tho work
has been faithfully done. An un
successful bidder told mo to-day wc
had an honest and square job, The
total cost of the land and building,
etc., was 818,9G8.75. Mr. Jones
he re' presented the keys to tho Presi
dent with a few bright wojds of as
piratiou as to the future of the Associ
ation. The President accepted them,
reciprocating the wishes of Mr.
Jones. (His Majesty, attended by
His Ex. J. M. Kapcna, arrived dur
ing this speech, and was received by
the audience, standing.)
Mr. Pratt then addressed the
meeting giving a somewhat lengthy
resume of the work alone during the
past year and a few of the reasons
why ive needed such a building as
this was; (1) wc need n homo j (2)
wc need a building for strangers ;
(8) wo need it for the young grow
ing up around us. -In nddicssiiig
them for the last time as a body ho
urged on them the need of harmony,
enthusiasm and fidelity. Wc are
one hundred strong, lot us see how
much one hundred earnest .Christians
can do. Then Mr. F. W. Damou
read a poem wrilteu specially for
the occasion, by Mrs. B. F. Dillng
ham, -after which tho choir sang tho
fcymn entitled "Crown Him,"
Mr. T. II. 1 av cs then ad re t cd
the meet ng n an exceed nj.ly neat
and humorous speech in 'which he
alluded to the mental spottiness
which prevailed here, outwardly large,
but giving way v?lien leaned on. The
tenor of his rcmniks is cxquVitoly
limned in the hymn quoted at the
" O kill mo, Lord, t'uit I may lend
The wan cring an I tin wave ing feet,
O feed me, Lord, thai; 1 mv foul
Thy hungering onu t v ith milium sw ect
" O trcngth n nic tint, while I stand
Firm on tliu Ho k nnil strong in Thee,
I may stretch o '.t ii loving linnd
To wrcstlciB wi.h the troubled sea."
Mr. Cruzan was next called, and
after alluding briefly to the lateness
f the hour (after 0 o'clock) and
the fact that the refreshments weic
waiting, gave a poweiful speech of
which the following is a synopsis :
"This building will stand as a
monument of the loving, .practical,
self-saciiflcing thought of Christian
ity for young men. Lessiru has
well said, that " when tho woild
inds out which church docs the
most good in the world, and most
completely satisfies the instinc and
longings of the human soul, then the
uoild will know in which church to
believe." It is a fair test, not ouly
for churches but for all govern
ments, systems, beliefs. This is an
age of lcligious unicst, especially
among young men. Superficial
thinking tin ns contemptuously from
the Bible. But this is also an age
of utility. It tries everything by
Lcssing's test. It stands with bal
ance in hand, on the cross-beam of
which it has written as its motto,
' will it pay?" Christianity willing
ly takes its place in one sca.lc, and
demands that infidelity shall take its
place in the other, and that young
men shall trv them by this practical
test of w' ( t they have done and are
doing for fie lace. "Where has in
lideli y ec founded an iu-titu.ion
of learning, built a hospital, an asy
lum, or a ho ne for the aged? Search
the cities of the woild, and where
will you fin I a building like this,
bui t by infidels for the benefit of
3011115 men? Christianity has dotted
the w)id with lur benevolent insti
tutions. Out of the self-denying
gifis of her believers she bui!lsk
;uu gsi le mii: V-111 isumi wiiuiuii, uiu
Christi in College, and her homes
and as unis for the world's need.
To sne r is easy and cheap. B .t
Christi i ity builds such institutions
as this V. M. C. A. building. They
nrc ver sdid. They cannot be over
thrown with a sneer. They stand as
her in nuineiits. Until infidelity
builds a few such she had better
sneer list and do a little more for
the bcti fie of the race."
The 1 lvsidcnt then called on Mr.
P. C .lones, who stated that there
was a deficiency of S43G still on tho
building fund, and the sum of 81000
was needed for furnishing, and that
ho would like to raise that amount
before going on with the collation.
In about ten minute , amidst much
amusement, 8 bids of $100 each
(Mr. Jones leading the list) were
put down, G of $50 each, and 12 of
$25 each ; this brought up the con
tributions to within $100 of the sum
needed, and Mr. Jones said he would
give that himself sooner than ask
anv more. The liberality and cood
humor which prevailed during this
portion of tho exercises weie emi
nently characteristic of a Honolulu
audience. Dr. Hyde then' pronounc
ed the benediction.
Part of the audience remained up
stalls, but a ureal mimy went right
down-stairs wlicic the collation was
served. Those tip-stnirs were not
forgotten, and tho ice-creain and
cakes, sandwiches and coffee, cir
culate amongst the busy groups of
conversationists, and formed, occa
sionally, from their excellence, tho
theme of praise. No stinting was
necessary, owing to the liberal sup
pjy of good things, and everybody
was served with whatever they need
ed. The whole credit of the excel
lent way In which the refreshments
were served is duo to the energy of
tho ladies' committee who superin
tended and obtained it. Their names
aro Mrs. A. Pratt. Mrs. II. Water
house, Mrs. Dr. 'Whitney, Mrs. F.
Cooke, Mrs. T. G. Thrum and Mis.
P. C. Joties. Tho memory of their
excellent ice-cream will long live.
The building committee deserve tho
thanks of everybody for tho success
ful accomplishments of their labors
amidst so many difficulties and dis
couragements, and tho contractor
Mr, Geo, Lucas is to be congratu
lated on the excellence of his work
manship. Throughout the arrangements were
excellent, and although the speech
portion wus a little lengthy, that no
doubt, is duo to tho cptbuslasin,
which filled the breasts of tho speak
ers because they wcro speaking for
