THURSDAY, JULY fi, 1883.
THE FOURTH OF JULY CELEBRATION.
Throughout the town, the (luy was
a oi:ni;u.u. iiomhay
and till thu Government ollleos were
closed, the Ministry having given
Elections to tltul effect the evening
before. The vessels in the hnibour
were beautifully decorated with Hags
ami bunting, the TJ. S. and Japan
ese men-of-war being conspicuous
in this tespcot while over the town
iloated the Hawaiian, the different
Consular, and the American Hags,
the latter being leprescntcd by the
thousand. The residence of Mrs.
Macfarlane on Hotel street was,
perhaps, the prettiest of all. Fire
crackers and bombs were let off
at intervals, and every one seemed
to be bent on getting the greatest
amount of enjoyment possible out
of the 2 1 hours of the day.
The day began by the firing of a
saluatc of 13 guns, after which came
the procession of
THi: ANTIQIT.S AMI 110U1UIII.1
They went over the route laid out
for them, causing excitement and
laughter by their grotesque appear
ance. At their head sat a perfect
imitation of Captain llayley followed
by a detachment of mounted police
(also imitated to the life). So per
fect was the imitation that numbers
really believed that it was actually
the gallant Captain and his force.
The Reformatory School Baud play
ed the music for them during their
march and after them followed
various pageants historical, aud
comic. On reaching Mr. J. T.
"White's they were sumptuously
regaled with cakes, coffee and
By 10 o'clock quite a number of
people had gathered in the Hotel
grounds, and on its balconies to
witness the exercises of the day.
The front of the Hotel was beauti
fully decorated with large Hags
draped in arches and festoons while
smaller editions of the stars and
stripes flaunted gaily from every
tree, and all along the tops of the
fence. On the lawn a rostrum had
been erected and sheltered from the
sun by a canopy stretched from the
treetops, scats were placed round for
the acccommodation of those who
prefered being in the open air.
After some little preliminary wait
ing His Ex. R. M. Daggett, the
President of the Day, escorted Mrs.
E. R. Hendry, to a scat on the
rostrum, being followed by the Rev.
Geo. Wallace, the Chaplain, and
Dr. M. L. Ruth, U. S. N., the
Orator. The choir also were ac
commodated with scats on the plat
form. The Baud then played a
selection of American airs, after
which the opening prayer was offered
up by the Rev. Geo. Wallace. His
Ex. R. M. Daggett then made a. few
introductory remarks referring to the
fact that representatives of almost
every nation were gathered there to
do honour to the anniversary of the
birth of freedom for all men. He
paid a touching and well-deserved
tribute to the members of the Grand
Army of the Republic who had
fought that this anniversary might
be celebrated for ever and wound up
by a eulog' on the Declaration of In
defendencc. Mrs. E. R. Hendry,
then read the Declaration of In
dependence in u clear sweet voice,
after which the choir sang the Star
Spangled Banner being joined in the
chorus by the audience. Then came
reviewing the causes which led to
the celebration of the day and their
consequences. Throughout ho was
cheered and applauded to tho echo
and at tho close ho received a per
fect ovation, the heartiest we have
heard in Honolulu. Tho Band then
ployed Wo'll rally round tho Hag,
Boys, after which tho choir sung the
Red, White, and Blue. The Band
then played America and Mr. W. W.
Hall sung tho solo of Marching
through Georgia and the choir and
audience joined in the chorus The
exercises closed with the Hawaiian
National Anthem. During the final
music icecream and lemonade wore
served gratis to those who wished to
partake of them.
His Majesty and other members of
the Royal family were present ns
were also members of the Diploma
tic and Consular Corps, and the
Captain and olllccrs of the Essex.
At noon a salute of .'18 guns yns
(lied. In the
picnics were the order of tho day.
Several impromptu yacht races were
got up in the harbor. Quito an in
Iciest was taken in them by the par
ticipants. At sunset a salute of 18
gnus was fired. In the evening
at the Music Hall was well attended.
His Ex. R. M. Daggett and Mrs.
Dr. McGrcw were tho host and
hostess of the evening, and filled
their parts to everybody's satisfac
tion. Dancing was kept up to a
lalo hour. The decoratious were
simply splendid, being the best wc
have been at any ball in this city.
This ended the day's doings and the
guests departed, after telling each
other how happily and pleasantly
this -1th of July had passed, and
longiiiK for the next one to come.
