THE CLASSIC SHADES OF PUNAHOU.
Principal Merritt. of the Oahu
College, yesterday afternoon called
at the lJuuxTis oilice door with his
carriage, and took the editor out to
that institution. It is a very pleas
ant drive to a very lovely spot.
Just after passing Mr. Spreckels'
mansion, a modest-looking gate is
entered, and a winding road leads
through a wooded lawn to the Col
lege. Arrived at the centre of the
group of buildings, a glance shows
progress written upon the surround
ings. Although, being his first visit,
the writer could not place in order
all the changes that had even recent
ly taken place, yet the different
styles of building and the graduated
evidences of respective age showed
that a series of progressive strides
had occurred in the appointments
and appurtenances of the College.
By arrangement witii an adjoin
ing proprietor the ground has been
squared up into a more symmetrical
shape than it formerly had. Last
summer the shifting of several minor
buildings, and the grading of the
ground about the library and class
room building, made a great im
provement in appearances. Changes,
that must of necessity be gradual,
are contemplated upon the lawn a
greater variety of trees to lie planted
and the grass assisted to triumph
over the weeds.
The principal buildum of the
group is the one occupied as the
home of the boarding students. It
is a long, two-storied, and elegant
looking structure, surmounted by a
square tower of observation, nijd
having ample verandahs those joys
of this climate. The tower looks
rather angular and to slender harmo
nize with the building, aud iu the
more prosperous days apparently
coining upon the institution, it is to
he hoped the trustees will replace it
with a broader-based and terraced
structure, or a large dome. As it
Is, however, the view from the tower
is one of surpassing loveliness and
magnilicence. In front the peren
nially embowered suburbs, the roar
ing reefs and the shimmering sea ;
in the rear the everlasting hills, with
the intervening valleys Makiki and
Manoa draped in a misty veil ; on
the right the Punahou slopes, adorn
ed by the Lunalilo Home, aud
Punchbowl, with the city and its
rmllsndo of gallant i'mrs in front ;
on the left, the verdant WrdklUt
plains and many inamions, Kapio-
Inui l'aik, with Diamond Head be- ,
yond, standing clear-cut and grand
against ocean and ky.
This building was opened a year
ago last October. AVIlhin it every
condition of wholesome life and
onmfoit is found. The large double
reception room, dining room, read
room, kitchen and dormitories are
each nil that could be desired in
their way well-kept, roomy, airy,
and simply though amply furnished.
A sweet-toned Miller parlor grand
piano is one of the recent acquisi
tions to the tcccption room. More
like a private summer resort iu the
temperate zone than anything else,
it is not too much to look forward to
the day when youth will come
from abroad to this institution, as
combining the elements of a natural
sanitarium pure air, even temper
ature, and the most pleasant sur
roundings with the facilities of a
good education. There arc at pres
ent 43 students attending the Col
lege. The library and class rooms arc
contained in one of the older build
ings, standing in a direction at right
angles to the new building line.
There are between two and three
thousand volumes in the library, but
at least a thousand new ones are
required to bring it up to a standard
.of piactical elllcicney. Many of
the books arc of an antiquated sort,
and the department of fine arts is
almost unrepresented on the shelves.
A lecture for the benefit' of the
library is to be given this evening,
as elsewhere announced, and a hint
to the well-disposed is doubtless all
that is necessary, apart from the
high reputation of the lecturer, to
ensure a handsome benefit on the
occasion. In the same room arc the
museum collections, comprising some
valuable Hawaiian and Marquesan
relics, and geological and concholo
gical specimens. Here there is room,
however, for a world of beneficence,
as very much is required to make up
anything like the desired historical
collection of Hawaiian relics. Such
as there are of curiosities will be
properly classified in the cabinet of
the new building now to be noticed.
To the right of the principal build
ing above described the walls are up
for the Bishop building. It is fresh
in the memoiy of all that the Hon.
C. R. Bishop early last year gave
the trustees 815,000 for the erection
of a building and the founding of a
scientific department of the College.
A contract was given to Mr. Thomas
for the building at 8,900, and
under his hands it has gone forward
expeditiously. It is high enough to
be a two-story building, but it is
only one story, as the ceiling is te
lie 18 feet high. With such an
amount of breathing space the stu
dents may work hard and long with
out a sense of confinement. "When
completed.' it is estimated the
building with furnishings will
have cost upwards of 10,000.
The ma'in building is 50 ft. by 2G ft.
3 iu., and an L attached is 39 ft. by
L'G ft. 3 in. The wing is to be fitted
up as zi fecientifie laboratory. The
main building will contain two rooms,
one 30 ft. by 21 ft., the other 10 ft.
by 24 ft. The larger one will be
furnished with seats in amphitheatre
form, every sitting commanding an
unobstructed view of the platform,
and this will be the scientific lecture
room. The smaller room will be the
cabinet for the reception of the
museum effects. Prof. L. L. Van
Slyke, of Michigan University, has
accepted the chair of chemistry and
natural sciences, and will be here in
September. The inauguration of
this now department will be an im
portant epoch in the history of this
excellent and progressive sent of
"F. S. D"
in a recent issue of
tfto Alia California, gives a graphic
description of the Kilnueti volcano.
He tells of his first sight "revealing
nothing but beauty, but as he gnzed
a grand perturbation took place in
the lake of lire, and he " turned
slowly away, awed and impressed
by this terrible evidence of the mag
nitude of the works of nature and
the Omnipotent Maker of all things."
Some of the first ladies in the State
are members of the Ladies' Silk
Culture Society of California. Among
recent accessions to Its membership,
vc notice the name of Mrs. Leland
Stanford, whoso husband is the rnil-
way magnate lately elected United
States Senator. At the regular
monthly meetings of the society,
very inlciosliug lectures upon silk
culture nml manufacture are given
by specialists. When shall we have
the pleasure of announcing the
organization of the Ladles' Silk
Culture Society of Hawaii?
The .jfrrt California, discussing
lcsolulions iu favor of "free and
unlimited coinage" of silver, which
wcie passed by a convention of silver
men at Denver, says:
."The objection lo the coinnge of
standaid silver dollars on the plan
pioposcd is that it would make the
United States the dumping ground
for all the foreign silver Eighty
live cents in gold will buy enough
European silver to make a standard
dollar, and after being brought here
and coined, it is 03 law exchange
able for a gold dollar, worth fifteen
eents more in the foreign market.
Under the Bland law, it is the Gov
ernment that makes the profit, while
with "free" coinage it would be the
owner of the bullion. The advocates
of tltc pioposal thought it wonld be
a splendid thing for the silver miucrs
to be able to coin their silver, in
stead of selling it to the Government,
but on trial the advantages would
rather be with the .speculators, for
the silver could be brought in from
abroad faster titan it could be dug
out of the ground."
