The Wnikulo river in tho district
of Ewn has heretofore been an unob
structed passage and a light-of-way.
Many small vessels ran up and down
the river with fi eight, whilo natives
in canoes frequently went there to
flali. No one ever thought the river
would be tabooed to everybody but
one man, but such is the case.
Scveial small crafts have already
been picvenled from entering the
river, and the injured parties ask
what right has any body to obstruct
the entrance of a river that has been
a free run for more than 1 5 years.
It is said that the land embracing the
stream belongs to the Poor estate,
and the liver has been tabooed to
give the sole monopoly of the stream
to Mr. F. Wundcnburg. Mr. Wun
denburg says that Mr. Henry Poor
has leased the stream for ten years
for the purpose of propagating fish.
lie had spent about a thousand dol
lars in importing salmon trout, and
the spawn wits doingwcll until the
Chinese rice growers dammed this
river, drove their cattle through the
stream and started a duck farm of a
thousand ducks. Mr. Poor then for
bade the use of the stream to any
body, and has begun suit for dam
ages against the Chinese on the
banks of Waikclc stream. Mr. Wun
dcnburg, hearing that the stream
was blockaded, went to Mr. Poor
yesterday to see about it, when the
latter gentleman said he was utterly
disgusted with his fish venture and
would willingly transfer the lease to
Mr. 'Wundcnburg. Whereupon the
offer was accepted and the papers
arc being drawn up as required by
law. Mr. Wundcnburg says that if
he can be benefited l3r allowing none
but his vessels to enter the stream
you can rest assured that no other
vessels shall enter.

m.rar Dedication or Tin: Ni:w
The dedication of the new build
ing erected for the purposes of tho
Chinese Y. M. C. A. took place last
evening with exercises appropriate
to the occasion. The building stands
on tho lot in the rear of the Chinese
Church, corner of Fort and Bere
lania streets, and is reached by a
wide alley from Bcrctania. The ap
proach to the building was lit up by
strings of lanterns thrown over the
alley at intervals, and by several
big Chinese illuminators hung about
the arched gateway at the street.
Lanterns of all colors, shapes and
dimensions lit up the areas in the
front and rear as well as the rooms,
halls and corridors within. The
general audience room is in the
upper flat, and was filled with chairs
to its full capacity and thcro were
A'ery few chairs unoccupied. The
platform and walls were elaborately
decorated with bouquets, fan palms,
ferns, mailc, and other Hawaiian
flowers and plants. All the decora
tions were tho handiwoik of Chi
nese volunteers, and the artistic
genius of the race showed itself with
very tine effect. The audience num
bered probably about 300 persons,
and epnsisted of Chinese, Hawaiian,
American and English friends of the
institution. Mr. Goo .Kim, Presi
dent of the association, Mr. To
Tcng U, preacher in the Chinese
church and teacher in the Chinese
school, and Rev. C. M. Hyde, D.D.
were on the platform with Mr. F.
W. Damon who conducted the pro
ceedings. The boys of the Chinese
school were present wearing the star
and ribbon of their "order." Some
are, as yet, very fragmentary speci
mens of humanity, but even the
smallest midgets among them con
ducted themselves with a decorum
that seemed to indicate consciousness
of an event of great national import
ance being about to take place.
The boys' share of the programme
was to opnn the proceedings by pro
nouncing the Lord's Prayer together,
in Chinese. The 21th Psalm was
read by Mr, Damon, in English and
by Mr. To Teng U in Chinese. Four
verses of a hymn were sung simul
taneously in English, Chinese and
Hawaiian, Mr. Damon giving tho
piano accompaniment. Mr. Damon
next read a paper on the origin,
aims and present position of the Chi
nese Y. M. C. A., and was followed
bvMr. Goo Kim giving a similar
account in Chinese. Next came two
verses of Coronation sung in the
three languages of the audience,
with piano accompaniment. Tho
formal dedication of the building was
then read by Dr. Ilydo in English
and Mr. Tetig U in Chinese. Fol
lowing is tho English version :
FltlUNIH and BituTiutr.N: Ho,
whoso Good Spiiit put it into tho
hearts of this Chinese Y. M. C. A.
to "Arisd and build," has now
brought us together to unite in the
rejoicing over the fltiMied work.
We read, in God's Word, that
when the patriarch Jacob was
journeying, away from home and
fiicnds, he lay down, a wearied
traveller, for his night's repose, with
onlp n stone for a pillow ami tho
blue sky of heaven for tho canopy
of his couch. But in his dieains he
saw the sloping hillside opposite
transformed into altar stairs, on
which were God's angel messengers,
ascending and descending on their
errand of "peace on earth and good
will to men." More than that, this
child of God, :i solitary, desponding
wanderer, heard, then and there,
God's own voice of heavenly com
fort, and His promise- of divine bles
sing to him and to the nation that
should have in that land their an
cestral home. Adoring gratitude
moved him, on awakening, to niaik
the scene of such special mercies, by
consecrating the stone that had
served him for a pillow, and setting
it up as a pillar, bearing God's
name, to perpetuate the memory of
that vision of divine fellowship and
So this building, .beneath whoso
roof we arc now assembled, into
which the members of this Chinese
Y. M. C. A. have built not only the
silver of tlicir generous gifts, but their
spirit of kindly sympathy and their
purpose of loving helpfulness, stands
and long may it stand no unsub
stantial dream of the night, but a solid
and honorable testimonial of that
spiritof brotherly kindness and open
handed liberality, that comes into
the darkness of our earthly life,
wherever the light of Christian truth
blesses the heart of man with its
revelation of tho fatherhood of God,
and its promise of a home of
heavenly holiness and blessedness.
Here the stranger will bo welcomed,
the inquirer guided, tho ignorant in
structed, the penniless sheltered, the
sick relieved, the poor assisted, the
solitary ones made glad with the as
surance of human sympathy and of
divine remembrance. In devout re
cognition of the Holy Spirit, revealed
as tho comforter, whose office it is
to make evident and effectual
Christ's life of self-denying and
self-sacrificing love for our sinful
and suffering humanity, we do now
dedicate in Christ's name this build
ing, and all its belongings to the
service of God, for the pious uses
for which it has been planned and
built. May Christ's name be ever
honoicd, and grateful praise be
given, by the right use of every
apartment and of every convenience
hero provided. May all of us here
present, and all who may enjoy the
privileges of this building conse
crated to God and humanity, be
living stones in the temple of our
God. May all have that faith, and
hope and love, which give the sure
pledge of "a house of God, not
made with hands, eternal in the
heavens," the mansion prepared for
the redeemed soul. And now to the
God, who made us, and redeemed
us, that we may ever dwell with
Him in the fellowship of holy love,
be all praise, dominion, and majesty,
General Secretary Fuller, of the
Honolulu Y. M. C. A., being called
on, delivered a shoit address, Mr.
Damon interpreting for the Chinese.
A brief and eloquent speech in Ha
waiian followed, by Mr. Henry
Walerhouse. The following hymn
was sung in the three languages by
the audience, standing:
TIic-c walls wc to Thy honor raise,
Long may (bey echo with thy praic,
And thou descending 1111 the place,
With eholcet tokens of Thy grace.
Here let tho great Redeemer jelgii
Willi all tlio graces ot ills train,
While power divine His word attends,
To conquer foes and eheer his friends.
And in the great decisive day
AVhcn God tho nations shall survey,
May It befoic tho world appear
That crowds were born to glory here.
The hymn ended with the doxo
logy, after which the services were
brought to a close by Dr. Ilydo pro
nouncing the benediction.
The audience was invited to re
main seated and partake of tea and
cake provided by the members of
the Association, an invitation which
was duly honored. The refresh
ments served were liberal in quan
tity as well as excellent in equality.
About half an hour was very agree
ably spent iu those social felicities
peculiar tho world over to the "cup
that cheers but not inebriates," after
which the audienco dispersed whilo
congratulations could be heard on
every hand on tho auspicious inau
guration of the Yau Ilok Kituk

EVOLUTION OF THE MANATEE.
A raic specimen of tho Manatee,
or sea cow, was received at Cor
nell University, Ithaca, New York,
recently, from South America. Lec
tin ing upon it, Dr. Wilder said:-
"Tho Manatee is one, of tho cases in
which evolution has produced just
tho opposite of its usual effect. The
Manatee is an animal belonging to a
family that has evidently seen bet
ter days. 1 picdict that not many
years hence there will bo found
more and more conclusive evidences
that the forms from which Manatee
and its relatives have been descended
had arms and legs and a very much
smaller tail. The hind leg's have
been lost iu the process of evolu
tion, the front legs have been de
graded into litis, and the tail has be
come one for swimming instead of
for Happing from side to side. The
Manatee will bo dissected with a
view to demonstrate the bcaiing of
its whole structure upon the ques
tion of retrograde metamorphosis."
A CENTRAL AMERICAN ALLIANCE.
The New York World, Nov. 12lh,
says: "Although the Tripartite
Convention between San Salvador,
Guatemala and Ilonduias'was signed
over a month ago, a copy has not
been in possession of the Consul of
either republic here until yesterday,
when a prominent Salvadorian Gene
ral just arrived gave them the con
tents. He reports that it is an ex
traordinary document, which is
likely to agitato the people of those
countries. It provides for an alliance,
offensive and defensive, and its
provisions seek to regulate the in
ternal affairs of the thicc countries.
In his opinion it will greatly retard
the scheme of confederation pro
posed for the three republics named,
also of Costa Rica and Nicaragua.
Among other things, it provides for
a uniform law regulating civil mar
riages, and provides that in the
event of internal disturbances in
anyone of the three countries, the
troops of the other two arc to bo
brought in to quell them. Should
any attempt be made to carry this
out, it could not fail, it is said, to
create more trouble, if not kindle
revolution. The alliance has yet to
be ratiGcd by an Assembly of each
