Un Monday, March Ifith, wc win
harked on board this Oceanic steain
tiliip Alameda (which, bv llu way,
is onu of the llncst American ships
iilloal), for Honolulu, making the
trip of twenty-onu hundred miles in
seven days. At 0 o'clock on the
morning of the l!th vc were in
sight of the Island of Molokni, anil
in nuhoit timi the Island of Oahu
lnndc its appearance. Passing the
western extremity of this island wc
passed up the channel, and soon
rounded Diamond Head, and Hono
lulu was in sight. The fragrant at
mosphere of the tropics was a most
agreeable greeting. After seven
days of ocean life the highlands of
theeity, known as the Punch Howl,
an extinct crater, made its appear
ance, towering up somc live hundred
l'eot. As MO neaicd the dock wc
could sec the cocoanuL trees, the
spreading palms, thu mango, llic
monkey-pod, the nlgtiroba, hibiscus,
bamboo, camphor tree, fun palm?,
india-rubber tree, and many others
too numerous to mention, which
slave the city a very tropical appear
ance : and led us to realize the
day-dreams of our schoolboy hours
wore to be experienced, as we should
travel over the far-away islands of
the sea. In a few moments the pilot
came on lioaid, his boat being man
ncd by a liaUvc'erow, and the ship
was soon placed alongside of the
dock, where o were met by wail
ing friends who, until that hour,
were strangeis to us. "We were soon
hurried to a carriage and driven
rapidly to the beautiful residence of
P. C. Jones, Jr., who, with his good
wife, entertained us most loyally
ilur.ing our three-weeks' stay in the
Hawaiian Kingdom ; and a more
cordial, hospitable and devoted
Christian pcopld it would be hard to
find than those wc were privileged
to meet in these beautiful islands in
The entire kingdom numbers less
than eighty thousand ; about thirty
thousand, being foreigners. It is
sad to report that only about fifty
thousand natives remain out of the
extensive population which must
have inhabited these islands in the
days of their discovery in the last
The principal industry of the is
lands is the sugar plantations. The
following fruits arc also cultivated :
Tamarinds, dates, bananas, coeoa
nuts, mangoes, guavas, alligator
pears, etc. The principal food of
the natives is poi, which is a sort of
liquid, something like gruel, which
thej' scoop up m ith their two lingers
and conduct at once to their mouths.
Wc hardly need to tell you that this
method of eating poi was not swiftly
taken to by the writer.
A great deal has been said and
written about the habits and the
peculiarities of the natives, so I will
not trespass on your time to say
anything more on this paiticnlar
phase of life in the .Sandw ich Islands.
The city of Honolulu was settled in
early days by New England mis
sionaries, and the haino earnest
missionary spirit has grown up with
the city and exists to-day, which
gives it a New England appearance,
both in the method of worship, man
ner of living, .Sabbath observance,
etc. Wo were glad to notice, on
the Sabbath day, even in this foreign
land, that no business was trans
acted, all saloons and places of
business being compelled to be
closed on the Sabbath day.
The climate is perfect, seldom
varying over fifteen to twenty de
grees,. the average temperature being
, about eighty a most perfect, balmy
atmosphere, delightful evenings, al
ways requiring a light cover for your
bed during the night.
It may not be an uninteresting
fact for me to state that, the salary
of the King of this Kingdom is ncaily
equivalent to that of the President
of the' United States, being between
forty-live and fifty thousand dollars,
while the entire population of the
kingdom is not quite one-third as
large as San Francisco.
I must confine myself to the busi
ness which brought me to'this beauti
ful city in the Islands of the Pacific.
I came directly in the interest of the
Young Men's Christian Association,
and on my arrival here 1 find that
they have a lino Association building,
all paid for, and a most excellent
class of Christian business men, and
young men identified with its work.
They have been without a Secictary
for somo time, and my special busi
ness was to coiner wiin tiicm mauve
to a, man to take care of their Asso
ciation matters. Mr. 1. 0. Jones,
Jr., a prominent businessman of the
city, is President of the Association,
contributing largely of his means,
influence and talents to the work.
Notwithstanding the fact that they
have been without a General Secre
tary for tho larger part of the year,
they have done a good work. They
have conducted classes in book
keeping, algebra, geometry, vocal
music, and the Hawaiian language.
They have iv young men's meeting,
noon-day services, and general
prayer-meeting on Sabbath afternoon,
IVible-class for young men only,
special work for boya, mid their
committees havo dono commendable
woik during the year. Mr. Jones
has conducted the book-keeping class
for young men only, every Monday
evening, for two ycais, In which over
sixty young men have become fami
liar with book-keeping, and aio now
holding lucrative positions in vnrious
pails of the Islands, many of which
wein secured directly through the
inlluencc of Mr. Jones. This will
give you somo idea of his great in
tcicst in young men.
On Tuesday evening, May Mth,
Mr. J. 13. Atiierlon was elected Pre
sident of the Association for the
ctin cut year. Mr. Athcrton is also
a piomincnt business man, whose
talents, nionoy and inlliicnoo are
consecrated to the Master's work.
They have called Mr. S. I). Ful
ler, formcily General Secretary Of
the Sacramento, California, Associa
tion, to become their General Sec
retary, and Mr. Fuller will sail for
Honolulu on May lfith. He is n
most competent man, and his years
will make him
