Hon. S. G. Wilder, in reply to a
question about the railroad material
for the islands, said this morning
that he "had ordered all he wanted
and that he went to the States
mostly for fun." He also remarked
that he was sorry that ho could not
report the Treaty secure and sugar
advanced. Mr. Wilder tells of
abundance of rain on the Coast,

came here on her, left the steamer
on her arrival at the Islands, say

They also said they would not go to
San Francisco in her again for

Ilamakua coast it was not to bo

Mu. Dillingham has received let
ters from different parts of the
Islands by last mail, enquiring about
tho great land colonization scheme.
One from Ilamakua, Hawaii, says
there are a "great many" there
"who would like to invest." Letters
from Washington and San Francisco
arc indicative of a vory lively inter
est being taken in the scheme in
those places. Also, private cor
respondence from many foreign
quarters conveys sympathy with the
movement from persons desirous of
the welfare of this Kingdom.
As predicted in these columns,
the anniversary of Hawaiian Inde
pendence was more grandly cele
brated on Saturday last than it had
been in many years. There was a
goodly display of flags on shore and
in the harbor, tho British man-of-war
Constance looking gay with a
string of Hags arching from stem
to stern. The procession of church
societies to the Kauraakapili Church,
marshalled by Hon. J. A. Cummins,
escorted by native militia, and
headed by the band, was hardly up
to the programme, but what was of
it looked well. At noon royal
salutes were fired from tho shore
battery, Kakaako, and tho guns of
the Constance, that vessel being
enveloped in a denso cloud of blue
and white smoke before half-a-dozen
discharges were made. A
south breeze prevailed during tho
day, making the weather somewhat
sultry. Although many stores were
open, the bulk of the foreign, as
well as native population, gave
themselves up heartily to holiday
keeping. Some of the baser sort
went too far in this respect, and
made the evening air disagreeable
with unseemly language and gen
eral misconduct. A complaint has
been preferred to this paper that
the police were wilfully blind and
deaf to gross breaches of public
THE ORAND I.UAU.
The large auditorium, 100 feet
long by 60 feet wide, was densely
packed with an audience consist
ing, for the most part, of natives.
The assembly itself was a spectacle
-worth the going to see. People wJicf
refer to the Sandwich Islanders as
"savages" would be astonished to
find here, in a thoroughly native
church, a congregation of at least a
thousand people, tho women got up
in style as if they had just come
out of New Xork millinery stores,
and the men fixed in holiday cos
itumc very much in the fashion of
well-to-do New England farmers.
The front .pews were occupied by
members of the royal family, olllcers
of state, representatives of foreign
'nations, and many of the principal
ollicials of tho civil service. The
exercises opened with the singing
of "Hawaii Ponoi" accompanied by
the Royal Hawaiian Band. A brief
prayer was . offered by tho pastor,
Rev. J. Waiamau, after which came
the oration delivered by the Hon.
Robert Hoapili Baker. The inci
dents of the recognition of inde
pendence, 42 years ago, and the
present commercial status of the
kingdom were ably and elaborately
discussed. The concluding para
graph of the oration reads: "Tho
future of our country is full of pro
mise. The name of Hawaii has be
come honorable among the nations.
Let it be our duty, fellow citizens,
to endeavor and do our part to
maintain the independence of our
country; to assist His Majesty's
Government in carrying out their
duties and measures to promote the
general welfare ; to strengthen and
widen tho foundations of our
national independence, ever pray
ing to tlio Almighty to long pre
serve the health of our sovereign.
Long Live His Majesty King Kala
kaua the First." After the oration,
the band struck up, and played
some lively aira, whilo tho largo
audience Hied out in due .order.
Next came the grand luau which
was held in the basement. Six
tables extended from the platform
to the opposite end of the building.
On tho platform was spread a large
table, occupied by members and
connections of tho royal family.
Two or three side tables were ap
propriated to tho use of foreigners.
The six native tables were 'prettily
spread with fern leaves, giving;
them tho appearance of long strips
of green sward, covered with
crockcrywaro and tho staplo articles
of food peculiar to a genuine Ha
waiian feast. Calabashes of poir
cuts of pork rolled in ti leaves,
dishes of fish, salt, potatoes, kulolo
and palau, made up the bill of fare.
The clatter of knives and forks that
makes the white man's dining hall
sound liko a machine shop, was not
there, for tho transfer of tho nutri
tious elements from tho festive
tyoard to the mouths of tho eaters

was effected after the manner of
tho ancients. Tho supplies for the
occasion had been furnished by tho
twelve districts into which tho con
gregation is divided. Committees
were appointed to look after the
contributions ; and the evidences of
pMcnty that were everywhere spread
out, proved that tho committees had
done their work in no half-hearted
fashion. Mr. A. L. Smith, under
whose special direction and manage
ment the arrangements had been
made and carried out, is eutitled to
special credit for tho magnificent
success of the whole affair. Returns
from tho several committees, of
tickets sold, have not yet come in,
but tho receipts will probably net
some seven hundred dollars.
Two o'clock, the appointed hour
for tho competitive drill, found a
large audience in the Central Park
skating rink. His Majesty tho King,
clad in a Colonel's uniform of the
king's Own, occupied the central
chair "under a canopy formed of the
royal standard and other flag"), on
the inakai side of tho binding. To
his right were Princessds Liliuoka
laui, Likclike and Kaiulani ; Hon.
Paul Neumann, Attorney Gcncial ;
His Ex. Geo. W. Merrill, U. S.
Minister Resident, and Mrs. Merrill ;
the British Commissioner, Major
Wodohousc ; and Capt. "Doughty,
of the Constance. Upon His Maj
esty's left sat Governor Dominis,
Hon. A. S. Cleghorn, anil tho
judges, Major Benson, U. S. A.,
Col. E. W. Purvis, Vice-Chambcr-lain,
and Col. Opfergelt, of II. M.
staff. Col. C. II. Judd, Chamber
lain, and Col. C. P. Iaukea attended
the King, With very little delay
the first corps to be exhibited, tlio
Queen's Own, commanded by Capt.
W. F. O'Connor, entered tho build
ing, headed by the Royal Hawaiian
and Reformatory School bands. The
company made an agreeable appear
ance, its members all youthful and
very much of a size. Their excel
lent marching upon entering drew
foi th rounds of applause, repeated
as they proceeded with the exercises
given them. These demonstrations
apparently did moie harm than
good, interfering with the maitial
pose that at first excited admiration.
Their mannal, maiching and firing
exercises, however, were markedly
excellent throughout,attesting to the
very painstaking efforts the capta'n
had bestowed upon the company
during its few months of existence.
The formation of a square to resist
cavalry( was executed in very soldierly
fashion, that and other manoeuvres
creditably executed by them being
more than anv of the other native
companies even, attempted.
Next entered the'llonolulu Rifles,
headed by the Royal Band playing
Hawaii Ponoi, as wercall the com
panies! Their neat and well-fitting
uniforms and'very precise marching
evpked a buzz of admiration and
hearty applause as they made the
initial circuit of the room. They
were exercised in a. great variety pf
tactics and evolutions, beating them
selves throughout, with a few excep
tions, in fine martini style. The
exceptions were a few individual
slips and an ciror or two in wheeling
and distancing when marching by
subdivisions in fours. Excepting
the Queen's Own, no other company
ventured over anything like the ex
tent of ground covered by the Rifles.
They mustered 32 strong on thir
occasion, under command of Lieut.
The King's Own, commanded by
Capt. S. Nowlein, and numbering
fifty, marched in with excellent pre
cision, and their subsequent march
ing was uniformly excellent. They
were exercised in arms with a great
deal' of repetition, doing fairly well,
but their well-drilled paces and
turnings were their crowning exce
lence. Something commented upon
unfavorably in military circles is
that tho officers stood in fiont of the
company during firing exercises.
Fourtli on tho list was tlio Mama
lahoa Guards, mustering but twenty
eight rifles, and barring some fair
marching did not distinguish them
selves particularly. They were not
so bad in their initial performances
,as to deserve the ill-natured jeers
with which some spectators greeted
them. Their worst fault was prob
ably a general untidiness soiled
uniforms, and belts and coat-tails
all ' awry. It was evident, at all
events, that their ungenerous recep
tion made their performances below
the standard of their attainments.
Last to compete was the Prince's
Own, that mado the best muster in
numbers of all, no less than sixty
six turning out under Captain Ka
aha. They were subjected to very
much the same drill as the King's
Own, and, it is sulllcicnt to say, did
Bellas far as their excicises went.
After the competitive drill, whilo
tho judges were forming their deci
sion, tho King's Guaids entered,
and, in addition to some excellent
marching evolutions, gavo a fine
exhibition of bayonet exercises in
A short season of suspense as to
the successful competitors was re
lieved by the King's Own being
heralded in by the Royal Band, to
receive the prize flag at the hands
of the King. Tho trophy was pre
sented by His Majesty with well-

chosen words of praise to the win
ners, accompanied by a charge to
keep and honor the flag as a token
of the anniversary of national inde
pendence. Headed by the Royal and Refor
matory School Bands, the King's
Own marched from the building
bearing their pretty new silken
national flag, and took the place of
honor in the line of troops mar
shalled outside. Countermarching
the whole battalion moved down
