SATURDAY, NOV. 14, 1885.
W. LOGAN'S JOORNAT.
I found the school in successful
operation taught bv three of those
whovwere with us at Anapauo last
terra. It numbers nearly one liun
dred scholars. I had a meeting with
the church after seeing the school,
heard their confession and-experi-ences
and then, with the deacons
went over the church roll name by
name, to settle who should bo ad
mitted to the communion. I was
much pleased to find that but few
needed to be excluded. Some weeks
ago two boys got to quarreling and
one wounded tho other with a Bpear.
The friends of each boy rushed to
arms, and we heard at Anapauo that
there was likely to be a war. 1
found, however, that none ,of -the
Christians bad taken part on either
side, and that through the iutluence
of the Christian chiefs tho affair had
been amicably settled. One needs
to know a people like these to real
ize how much principle is necessary
to keep the church members fiom
joining their relatives under such
On Sunday, we' had a sermon at 9
4..11., then Sunday School, and after
a noon recess the communion ser
vices. One man named Sifas, some
six weeks ago, got angry and smash
ed a canoe. He came to us at Ana
pauo with one of his deacons to
know how he should get right again.
They have been taught by Moses
that they must not only be sorry,
but also do some days of work as a
punishment. I told him he must
'also pay for the ruined canoe. I
inquired into his case and found he
had not yet paid but was at work on
a canoe. I was afraid there might
be some slip, and therefore said he
must not partake of the communion.
Sunday morning, however, he came,
having given a piece of land in pay
ment, and so he was admitted. The
services passed off pleasantly. Then
about 3:20 r.M., the congregation
again assembled and the Sunday
School recited, rising one by one,
some verse out of tho Testament or
the Bible Stories or primer. The
selections were not always appropri
ate, but the service was profitable,
I thought. Then, at evening, there
was another service, at which two
young couples were married. These,
with a little visiting and praying
with the sick, filled up the day.
Monday morning I went into the
school to look after and encourage
the teachers and scholars, and then
we started for home. The wind was
blowing quite hard and two of the
deacons offered to come with
us on a sail canoe to see us
beyond the place of danger.
The waves were so high that
they took me and the baggage on
the sail canoe, thus lightening the
paddle canoe. It rained, the wind
freshened and came out dead ahead.
We beat up to the passage, (about
a mile wide) between Toloas and
Fefan. The waves were high, tho
people afraid and so they turned
back. I feared Mary would be,
alarmed if we did not get home so I
urged another attempt. We worked
up into the passage. About the
middle there were several reefs be
tween which we had to beat. We
worked for some time without gain
ing any. They people said, "If
anything happens to the canoe what
will become of us ; they are watch
ing us from on shore and will be
ready to attack us.." I held my
peace and still they worked the
canoe, tacking about from reef to
reef without making any headway.
At last the men said we must go
back; they were very sorry for Mrs.
Logan, but we could not get
through. So we returned to Uman.
The next morning we started again ;
the wind now was light and more
favorable and we reached Anapauo
about 1 r. m. six hours on the canoe.
When we have a boat many of the
difficulties of such journeyings will
be obviated. The boat can be rowed
or sailed, whereas the paddle canoes
are dangerous when the wind blows
hard, and the sail canoes cannot be
propelled when there is no nind.
July 28. One year ago to-day
we sailed from Honolulu. Five
days ago we got our first mail. The
''Morning Star" was at Ponape tho
20th of Juna and found there a
schooner coming to Ituk ; so Capt.
Bray kindly sent on our mail.
Arthur stays on Ponape while the
Star" returns east to do tho work
in tho Gilbert Is. then will come
hore. Capt. Bray writes that wo
may look out for their whistle any
time after Aug. 15. It is hard to
have Arthur so near and yet so far.
At first wo wero much disappointed
that he did not come on the
schooner, but on more deliberate
thought we feel that Capt. Bray and
tho" brethren on Ponape decided
wisely in having him wait for
the , " Star." And here arc
our letters which had been
accumulating in Honolulu nine
months. Letters from mother, broth
ers and sisters are opened first. No
one cam describe ooes feelings when
tho silenoo of ft year Is thus to bo
broken. How much we have to
thank God fori It is hard to go to
bed at night even when we know we
must or bo sick. Papers and maga
zines are left for the present al
though there is a whole bagful of
them. Wo havo as yet only been
able to read a part of tho letters
though wo put in all the time we
can spare fiom duties which cannot
oe put. nsiue. ui course mere are
nptiany too many of the letters and
1 suppose we wouldn't be sorry to
hnve them Inst a month, only we
are so eager and hungry for them
that wo want to take them all in at
Mr. Hall has kindly sent a largo
frame'd picture of the Morning Star
and this has delighted the people
Tho schooner which brought the
mail carries the American ling, (the
Mangai eviennc of Sau Francisco),
and it was a delight to see the dear
old flag once more. They locate a
trader on the south end of Fefan.
He is a whiteinan, an American citi
zen, born in Sweden. We hope his
influence will not be harmful. We J
were pleased with what we saw of
him. We began school again on
Monday, have about 80 scholars
enrolled and tho interest in study is
Aug. 11. We have been very
busy since my last writing. Wo are
building two native houses ; one for
our Mortlock help, the other for the
native teachers who come to us from
time to time. Thus far we have
taken them into our own house but
with Arthur and Miss Fletcher, who
we hope will come on the Star to
rest with us a little, there would be
no room ; and it is better for all that
they have a house by themselves.
We hope the Star may bring us one
more teacher from Ponape, who will
need to be with us a considerable
time. Then, too, our people are
building a house for the boat, we
hope the Morning Star will bring
We have read all our letters and
our papers some ; have not yet suc
ceeded in getting a very connected
idea of the doings of tnc world but
an inkling here and there. We havo
got up a flagstaff, ready to run up
the flag when the "Star" comes,
and have been doing many things to
get ready for her coming, for my
journey to Mortlock, &c.
Two weeks ago there was a lurge
gathering of natives at Japates, of
the party friendly .to those people.
The occasion was a grand dance.
When the dance was over the young
men clamored for war, desiring to
go and attack the people on Toloas.
One of the most influential chiefs
said he would not go to the war ; he
did not know ; the new religion was
strong ; he could not tell what atti
tude he would ultimately take. It
is encouraging to know that the
power of the truth is being felt. I
wish you could realize somewhat
how much power is being brought
to bear on these people through the
Gospel. In the school we insist that
the scholars must give up tobacco,
dancing, heathen worship, work and
play on Sunday, stealing, fighting
and adultery. The condition of
things in regard to this latter sin is
indescribably vile. There seems not
the least sense of shame in regard
to it. We have had to expel a few,
but have been surprised to see how
well the scholars as a body are
doing. Every Friday morning each
reports his misdeeds, and as they
have no hesitation in informing of
each other, concealment is very
difficult. There is a straightfor
wardness about them which is very
pleasant, When detected in a fault
they as a rule own it up without any
attempt at self-exculpation. Of tho
twenty candidates for baptism, none
have fallen ; one will probably be
kept waiting because he has several
times beaten his wife : one has stolen
breadfruit, one went to see a heathen
dance and has not seemed so earnest
in attending meeting as he ought.
The morning and evening meetings
are attended by from'thlrty to fifty.
In the evening, after singing and
prayer, (three hymns, the Lord's
prayer in concert andpiayer by two
of tho people), I tell a Bible story.
After I have told it I question them'
upon it, and then appoint one of
them to tell it over the next even
ing. The progi ess made in the
ability to understand and tell over
again a story is very pleasant to see.
Occasionally I spend a whole even
ing in questioning them on previous
lessons. At the close I pray, we
sing the doxology and unite in con
cert, (standing), in a closing prayer
wc have taught them.
In the morning, (very soon after
dawn), we have singing, prayer,
and then I lead and explain a short
passage of scripture. I have gone
oyer Matthew, picking out tho sto
ries mostly,, and Mark as far as
Gethsemane, (this morning's les
son), quite thoroughly. I first read,
then I explain, then question the
people ; and the next morning before
taking up the new lesson I question
them on the lesson of the previous
morning, On Sunday we have a
sermon at 9 a. m., then Sunday
school, and at 3 v. m, another ser
vice at which Mary takes the women
and 1 the men separately, and ques
tion on the sermon quite thoroughly.
Wo give out very little which wc do
not try to got back. Thus I am
helped to get down to their under
standing, and they arc helped in
many ways. At first wc could havo
no Sunday school as no ono could
read except our two Mortlock boys,
but now wo have about one hundred
and fifty scholars in thirteen classes.
Mary gets tho teachers together
twice a week and helps them to
learn and understand the lesson.
Iu school wc have sir who have
begun to read in the Testament, and
a dozen others who will be able to
commence in it by the close of an
other term. The books prepared in
the Mortlock language arc of Untold
value. It is a great slimulus to tho
scholars to feel that there nro other
booW beyond thclMmer all ready
for them. There are quite a number of
woids which need explanation ; but
tho scholars soon learn them. The
better wc become acquainted with tho
language, the more we find of same
ness. The differences arc on tho
surface. When wo come to make
more .books i we can use almost en
tirely words., that ale common; but
until then; the books which we have
wiu no sawstactory service.
It is exceedingly encouraging to
watch tho growth of tho people in
knowledge and in.right living. One
thing is very hopeful; tho peoplo
arc utterly without intoxicants of
any kind. Toddy from cocoa sap
iB very easily made, but the people
throw it away when it ferments,
thinking it is spoiled. This seems
strange, as they will eat fish after
they smell so badly as nearly to
knock one over at forty rods.
Doubtless white men will some time
teach them to drink, as they have
at the Marshall Is. ;but at any rate
the Gospel is here first.
A few days ago wc heard that the
people on Uman had been fighting.
The quarrel began by one man's
getting angry and cutting adrift a
canoe ; and we hear that two men
have been killed ; also that the one
who began the trouble is a church
member. Yesterday a few Japates
peoplo came and sat on our porch.
I asked them if they were not
afraid. They said, yes. I said I
hoped ere long the religion of Jesus
would be accepted all over the
group and then wc would not be
afraid of each other, as Jesus
taught us to love one another and
that it is wrong to kill one another.
One of them answered that the reli
gion of Jesus did not keep them
from fighting on Uman. So you see
these people are not so stupid as
one might think.
Our Mortlock Joni has been sick
for a week, so Mary's duties are
heavy. This afternoon she is over
looking the ironing, which one of
our Ruk boys is trying to do. It
takes her more time than it would
to do it herself, but we hope he will
learn by and by. It takes a good
deal of Mary's time and strength to
look after the clothing of our ten
boys. She has to cut out, baste and
overlook all the sewing.
Sept. 11. The Morning Star ar
rived yesterday. Arthur is well and
so glad to get home, and we well,
I will say nothing about it. Mr.
Sturgcs has had a paralytic shock
and by vote of the Ponape mission
the Star is going direct from here to
Honolulu with him, then return to
Micronesia, do the work in the Mar
shall Islands and then cornc on to do
our work. I suppose It will be four
months before we see her again.
Of course it disai ranges our plans,
but we will do the best we can.
Mr. Sturges has improved a good
deal on shipboard, and perhaps if it
could have been foreseen that he
would grow stronger it might have
been safe for the Star to have done
her work before going to Honolulu.
The missionaries in Eastern Micro
nesia are able to remain at their
posts except Sturges, though none
of them are very strong. We have
from Thursday noon until Saturday
noon to visit with the friends, look
after our boxes, &c, and do all our
writing, so wo must hurry. We
shall send mail when the Star goes
again. Mny God bless you all.
