WOMAN'S CHRISTIAN TEMPERANCE
ur.roKT or uin skchv.tahy.
In preparing the Hist minimi re
port of the "Woman's Christian
Temperance Union of the Hawaiian
Islands," I mn confronted with so
much that 1 wish to review in its
initial year that 1 feel somewhat con
fused and perplexed that I must
condense it till into so short a space.
This Union was organized under
the supervision of Mrs. Mary
Clement Leavitt, who came to us
under the auspieces of the National
Y. C. T. U. of the United States.
Mrs. Leavitt is a lady of, rare cul
ture of mind and strength of pur
pose ; and will be long and tenderly
remembered in this city, for her
earnest words, carrying conviction
with them, as she pictured so faith
fully and clearly the destroying
power of alcoholic diinks. This
indefatigable worker has made a
successful tour of New Zealand since
leaving here, lecturing and organiz
ing unions, and is now in Australia,
where she will icniain through the
winter. From there she proposes to
go to India and on to China and
Japan. Thence she goes to Euiope
and from there she "n ill cross the
Atlantic to her New England home.
She is fitly called, by our sisters
across the' sea, "Our Uound-thc-World
Ambassador." Noble woman !
would there were moic like her!
Solf-forgetful, self-sacrificing, with
an unswerving faith she moves on.
Heaven must smile upon such grand
endeavor; and will guaid and guide
her on her mission! In Nov., 188-1,
we met in the hall of the Y. M. C.
A. for the purpose of organization.
There were about forty ladies pres
ent. Mrs. Leavitt was appointed
to the chair and Mrs. S. E. llishop
becretary of the meeting. After a
short season of devotion, Mrs. Lea
vitt addressed the ladies upon the
objects and methods of the W. C.
T. U. of the United States; after
which she proceeded to business.
On motion of Mrs. Hiram Bing
ham, seconded by Mrs. J. M.
Whitney, it was voted to organize a
Union. The pledge was passed, and
signed by thirty-three ladies. A
committee for nominating olliecrs
was appointed, viz. : Mrs. J. M.
Cooke, Mrs. 13. F. Dillingham, and
Mrs. II. Bingham. After consulta
tion the following names were pre
sented: President, Mrs. J. M.
Whitney ; Vice-Presidents, Mrs. E.
C. Oggcl, Mrs. J. A. Cruzan, Mrs.
Geo. Wallace; Recording Secretary,
Mrs. R. J. Greene ; Corresponding
Secretary, Mrs. E. Jordan ; Treas
urer, Mrs. C. M. Hyde. By vote
of the ladies present these officers
were elected. The work of organ
ization was completed at a subse
quent meeting held on Dec. 4th, at
which a Constitution and By-Laws
were presented and adopted , by which
this organization should be governed.
We have the latter printed in
pamphlet form, and any one wish
ing a copy will be welcome to one
by applying to the president or sec
retary. We have had thirteen meetings,
with an average attendance of 22
members. Twelve of these were
the regular monthly, and one a
special meeting. The first two were
held in the hall of the Y. M. C. A.,
the others in the parlors. Besides
these we have had a public meeting,
presided over by our president. The
programme was made up of music
and addresses. The principal ad
dress was by Pastor Cruzan, and
was exceedingly interesting and full
of thrilling anecdote. Statistics
were given by .Rev. S. E. Bishop,
showing the comparative amount of
money expended for food and
alcoholic drinks, in the United
States. The figures were appalling
and in themselves a temperance
lecture. Several gentlemen signed
the pledge as honorary members,
and the meeting, on the whole, was
a pleasant affair.
Wc have had too benefits, one
from a lcctiuo by Pi of. Wayland;
the other a half benefit from a
lecture by Major Dane; the net
profits of which will be given by our
Our monthly meetings aie opened
by devotional exercises followed by
a course of reading and discussion
upon the subject of temperance.
Usually a lady is appointed to pre.
pure a paper giving a resume ot a
scientific lecture by borne eminent
M. D. who has given much thought
and study to the effects of alcoholics
upon mind and body, viz. : Car
penter, Richardson, Kerr and others
At the May meeting, our
read an interesting paper, prepared
by herself, entitled, "lhc Temper
ance Reform a Histoiy of the
Movement." At tho request of
some of the members this article
was published in the Saturday
Press of June 27th, and will show
whether Aye liavo an intelligent idea
of the magnitude of the woik we
have undertaken. But, it will bo
asked, what has tho society done,
for tho causo of temperance? In
this our initiative year great things
could not bo expected of us. Wo
have not been simply learning our
duties, nud the nature of the enemy
wo propose to fight. We have de
partments of work, each of v hich is
superintended by an efficient lady.
Mrs. E. I!, McCully has charge of
pre6s work and each week, since wo
were fairly organized, has prepared
an article upon temperance for one
of our lending journals, the Gazette.
In behalf of the ladies of the Union
I will here tender sincere thanks to
the editors of the different news
papers for so kindly giving notice of
our meetings and in publishing for
us articles upon temperance. Mrs.
A. B. Southwick superintends the
juvenile department of work. Mrs.
S. E. Bishop has had under her care
the Sunday school work. Mrs. B.
F. Dillingham has had the literary
department. Mrs. E. Jordan has
been superintendent of prison and
police temperance work. Mrs. P. C.
Jones is our gospel temperance
worker. But our greatest work has
been among the natives by Miss
Mary Green. Wc, in connection
with the Woman's Board
, ll.ll IICl I.
salary, so that she may devote her
time entirely to this department of
woik. Miss Green understands the
Hawaiian language well, and seems
in cveiy way admirably adapted to
this important field of labor. Her
earnestness and devotion to her
w ork are a sufficient guarantee of
The W. C. T. U. of our own
native land bases its hopes of ulti
mate success upon legislation. And
may we not hope to create a senti
ment among Hawaiians which will
influence their vole, and thereby
elect men to legislate in the interest
We have had eight temperance
tracts translated into the native
language under Miss Green's super
vision, and 2,000 of each, making
10,000, have been printed, and a
large proportion of them distributed.
In conclusion, I will say, from a
weak beginning we hope to grow into
a stronghold of temperance and
truth, which will yet be felt in this
little Kingdom of the Pacific.
We now number (Hi active and 25
honorary members. Wo arc anxious
to add recruits to our ranks and
will give a cordial welcome to volun
teers. It is painful to observe the leth
argy existing among Christian men
upon this subject. In evidence of
this it will be remembered that an
organization was started about the
same time as our Union, called the
"Union Temperance League" with
an enrollment of eighty names.
After repeated efforts, on the part
of a few, to effect an organization it
was abandoned and passed into ob
livion. 1 urther comment is un
necessary. Brother, will you sit
quietly by and let this monster vice
breathe in your very presence with
out raising your voice against it or
a hand to destroy the demon. The
horrors of drunkenness and the
misery caused by the sale of intoxi
cants are enough to awaken every
man and woman of influence to
earnest effort in the cause of tem
perance. Need wc look beyond our
own lovely city to find proofs of
the destroying, sickening effects of
alcoholic drinks? We liavo not
only the gilded saloon where gentle
men of culture and position in so
ciety congregate ; but the low dive
where the poor native or humble
sailor leaves his last penny and is
turned into the street to be captured
by the police and made to contri
bute to the treasury of a Govern
ment which is bound by every law
of justice and honor to protect the
weak. Mits. R. J. Giikiam:.
