Working Men's Association.
A meeting of the Working Men's
Association was held on Tuesday
evening at the Armory, Mr. Gold
smith in the chair.
In the absence of Mr. Carson the
Secretary, the minutes of the previ
ous meeting could not be read. Mr.
Cavcnagh the Assistant Secretary
then read the Preamble, Constitution
and By-Laws of the Association as
prepared in Committee. They were
subsequently read seriatim and dis
cussed. The Preamble as passed reads as
"The working men of the Hawa
iian Islands recognizing the necessity
of combining and forming n Society
for their own protection do hereby
establish an association Having lor
its object the moral and social eleva
tion of its members and to foster
that fraternal feeling which should
exist in their ranks, to the end that
we may by example and mutual
support encourage and assist each
' 'This Constitution shall be known
as the "Working Men's Association
of the Hawaiian Islands, first organ
ized on 9th October, 1883."
' 'The members of this Association
do pledge themselves to conjointly
use their influence and by every hon
orable means to protect all, so that
every occupation of the toiling mul
titude may become profitable and
The words ' 'Trusting in the Su
preme Ruler in justice of our right"
were, on motion, omitted from the
The officers of the Association, to
be elected on Tuesday, are to consist
of a President, two Vice-Presidents,
a recording Secretary, an Assistant
Secretary, a Treasurer, an Executive
Committee of three and a Sergeant-at-arms.
It was decided that the regular
meetings should be held on Tuesday
evenings at half-past seven.
In the rules of order some discus
sion arose on rule 0 whether ques
tions of politics should be discussed.
Mr. Danielwitz said that the amel
ioration of their condition was
political, he objected to party poli
tics Dut li anything unclean, in the
politics of this country, was done it
was their duty to object ; it was the
business of intelligent men to inquire
and search into a dirty political
state which could only be improved
by a change of laws. Such move
ments were made everywhere and by
universal movements the politics of
the country could be improved. If
anything was wrong it was their duty
to put it down and stamp it out.
jn uiuMuu ij who uuiauuu nun
politics should be discussed.
A relief Committee of three to
investigate cases was agreed upon,
the appointment of its members to
be left' with the chairman.
Discussion arose whether empt
ors of labor should be admitted to
the Association as well as laborers.
Mr. Kohm asked in what position
a laborer would be, who, subsequent
to his election, became an employer.
The Chairman said he would be an
honorary member without a vote.
Mr. Danielwitz said they wanted
employer or employee but he object
ed to those who lived by speculation,
and all men were strictly under the
head of working men.
Mr. Marchant said that on a broad
basis the Association should be a
Court of anneal for the emnlovm ns
well as the working man in cases of
dispute, not in any arbitrary manner
but so as to give both a fair show.
It was finally agreed that employ
ers should bo admitted to the Asso
ciation. The Constitution and Bye
Laws as amended were passed as a
The meeting adjourned at half-past
nine till Tuesday next.

THE I0E MACHINES
oineo our uriot nonce in a Jatc
issuo of the new and novel ice
machines just arrived here from
California, the invention of our old
fellow citizen, Capt. C. W. Gelett
we have been shown a very hand
some and satisfactory specimen of
its production in the 'shape of ice--and
been led to make further in
quiries in regard to it, as to capacity,
cost of working and so forth, and
confess much surprise at what
wo learn, for instance, the machines
arc marvels of simplicity. The one
that arrived per Mariposa, was put
on a dray, taken up town, set con
venient to running power in Mr.
West's shop a wheel attached and
a belt slipped on, and in a very
short time it was manufacturing ice.
The size shown here produces at
ino race oi auout three pounds per
hour, so that at the end of 4- hours
twelve pounds can be removed, and
the actual cost of producing this or
any other amount is only what it
costs to turn the wheel, and in mills
where machinery is already running
that expense is nothing, or there
abouts. The company that make
them in San Fraucisco'mako various
sizes for various purposes but for
plantation use, two sizes, one as
described above, and a size larger,
that produces about ten pounds per
hour are the best. Cost of
reducing ice is the same in
either. Tn describing the work
ing of the machine we may
say: A very volatile fluid is used
a product of ether, that works at
a very low pressure, that renders
breakdowns unlikely, and enables
the machines to be made and sold
at a moderate price. Now in our
local ice machines, ammonia is used
as the freezing agent, but the pres
sure at which that is worked is
from 150 to 225 pounds per square
inch. This fluid by the action of a
small pump, is drawn in a partial
vacuum through the freezing tank
of the machine, which is a cylinder,
9 inch in diameter, by oO inches in
heiirht: and from there is forci-rl into
a condenser, which is a cylinder, 13
inches in diameter by 24 inches in
height, here the cooling influence of
a small stream of running water, re
condenses the gas into fluid and it
.settles, and is drawn in again by
the action of the pump, and made
to do duty again by passing through
the freezer, and so the action is con
tinuous, as long as the pump is
in motion, the fluid is evapoiated
on one side and condensed on the
other, and used over anil overso
the expense as far as chemicals is
concerned is nominal.
Mr. It. Whitman, manager for
the company, is well known in this
community, having resided here for
4 years, from 1870 to 1874, and is
everyway reliable and trustworthy,
and is ready to undertake the con
struction of any kind of an ice or
refrigerating machine, to suit the
demands for plantation or other
wise. He has constituted our active
neighbor, Mr. Samuel Nott, his
agent for the islands.
AN AFTERNOON SERVICE.
The first afternoon service for
young men was held on Sunday in
the Y.M.C.A. hall, the ltev. J. A.
Cruzan presiding. There were about
250 people present, two-thirds of
whom worn jneu, but a number of
young men from the stores, mer
chants offices and business houses in
town were conspicuous by their
absence. Small circulars had been
left in all the restaurants and stores
inviting attendance to the service
which had been publicly announced
in other ways.
The service commenced with hymn
No. 22-J-, of the Gospel Hymn book,
"I've found a Friend," followed by
others. Mrs. Ilandford sang "The
Ninety and Nine." Prayers for
strangers and young men wore given
by Mr. Athertou and Mr. Cassidy.
Mrs. Pierce sang the solo part of
"Only an Armor bearer" and Mr.

lts reflection upon him. This pic- Two mystenic'a'ses o'f limn
tu re impressed me more of Christ
than any song or poem had done as
it came so near to me in my every
day work. Christ, of his own choice,
came to us from among (he working
classes and therefore appeals parti
cularly to you whom I now specially
address. Christianity differs from
every other religion by having for
its founder a working man. Christ
came from the poor and always re
mained among them, and, by so
doing, he dignified labor, anil he
never abandoned this class. His
apostles were chosen from working
men, except Judas whom we are
doubtful about, and it was the rich
who crucilietr him, and it is they
who preach fine words about the
dignity of labor but cut and despise
the working man.
I say that christian men and wo
men arc your best friends. Who
else would have built your Sailor's
Home in Honolulu to save sailors
from land-sharks who are always at
hand to get their money? Who else
would have erected this hmldih"
with its hall, its parlor and its read
ing room, with the best obtainable
literature? These are only single in
stances. If you choose you can
criticize, raise objections or place
difficulties in the way of your under
standing Christianity, but, if you
come seeking deliverance from sin,
it will be plain to you a child can
understand it. He is the best friend
of the poor because he was constant
in- his sympathy and constantly gave
himself to those in need.
Mr. Cruzan here referred to the
miracles of the loaves and fishes, the
sick man at the pool of Bethesda,
and the widow's son who was
brought to life again. He is your
lriend, and your sorrows, trials and
troubles touch him. You don't
want to drop your sins but to et
rid of them and Christ will take them
far from you as far as the East is
from the West. I am a great sin
ner but Jesus is a great Saviour.
Come to him just as you are, don't
wait to cleanse yourselves. A man

out for execution the1 flags of these
countries were wrapped round him
and the consuls told the Spanish au
thorities to "Eire on these flags if
you dare." So the banner of "God
is wrapped over us to protect us and
uoct asKs us to conic under it and
live. I say to you come, come at
