MONDAY, DKd. 7, J 335.
Head by Mr. F. W. Diunon at
Uio dedication of the Chinese Y. M.
(J. A., Thursday evening, icforrcd
to in yesterday's rcpoit of that
It is peculiarly lilting that the bile
of tlio liall, which we have this even
ing gathered to dedicate, should bo
in close proximity to that of the
Chinese church, which four years
ago was dedicated to the worship of
the true God. From almost the be
ginning of active missionary work
among the Chinese in Honolulu and
on these Islands the church and this
Young Men's Christian Association
have gone hand in hand. It is in
teresting to note how helpful they
have been one to the other both
blessing and being blessed in their
reciprocal relations. Although
earnest efforts had been made in
previous years by the Hawaiian
Board and individuals and not with
out good results, I would regard
the real systematic work now in
operation as the outgrowth, to a
very large degree, of the unwearied
labors of Mr. Sit Moon, who has so
recently passed away to the life be
yond, leaving behind him a grand
record of Christian zeal and faithful
service. He came to us in 1873,
under the auspices of the (Foreign)
Y. M. C. A. of Honolulu, an organ
ization, which wc welcome this
evening, with feelings of deep and
grateful emotion, mindful, as we
are, of the large-hearted generosity
. and biotheily sympathy ever mani
fested by its members in the caviso
of Chinese evangelization on 'these
Islands. Although this branch of
Christian woik has now largely
passed from their immediate care
and control, we love to treasure the
memory of that which has been
done, and pray that God will grant
his richest blossing upon the present
and future efforts of this most
helpful and beneficent association,
as he has been pleased to do in the
past. Mr. Sit Moon possessed rare
executive ability, a firm and un
wavering faith in Christianity, and
the spirit w hich is quickened, rather
than weakened by the presence of
difficulties. His new field was
thickly beset with these. With a
very few of his countrymen he
found a welcome. The leligion
which" he came to preach was not
favored by the very large
This did not, however,
and he, with the few who sympa
thized with him, began vigorously
to devise means for the extension of
the woik. In April of 1870, Mr.
Sit Moon, Mr. L. Asieu and Mr.
Goo Kim met in the store of the
latter to talk over the best methods
of advancing the cause of Christ
among the Chinese. As a direct
result of that humble conference,
nearly ten years ago, wc have
to-night this pleasant and commo
dious hall, the numerous brother
hood which is here present and the
goodly and far reaching influences
of this association. Mr. Sit Moon
related to them the woikings of the
Y. M. C. A. among the Chinese in
California, and it was decided to in
augurate a somewhat similar move
ment here. It was felt, and lightly,
as icsults have demonstrated, that
an organization based upon Chris
tian principles, open to all who de
sired to become acquainted with the
"true doctrine," which would at
the same time afford the stimulus
of brotherly sympathy and support,
would serve as a stepping stone to a
later entire and complete accept
ance of Christianity and public
profession of the same. Men, who,
waking to a sense of something
1 higher and better than the old sys
tem of faith and action in which the3'
have been cradled, yet fear to break
with the past, would here be
strengthened to a firmer stand,
while others who may possibly have
joined from lower and selfish mo
tives, might by the power of the en
nobling doctrines now prominently
brought before them, be led into a
better life. The three whose names
arc mentioned above started the
movement with gcncious subscrip
tions. The first meeting was held
in the Bethel Chuich. In a few
months twenty-four members were
enrolled. The beneficial influence
of the new movement became im
mediately apparent. It was indeed
the first step, but the way pointed
heavenward, Mr. Sit Moon was
encouraged here by the presence of
increasing numbers at his religious
services, and the infant church had
gained a potent ally, whose influence
from that day to this has been for
good. In November, 1877, the full
Constitution and By-Laws of the
society were drawn up and a charter
was granted by the Government.
I might mention hero that among
the early acts of the new organiza
tion was the purchase of a large lot
in tlio Makiki cemetery to be used
as a Christian burial ground. In
1878 a retail stoic was started on
Nuuauu street for the benefit of
the Association. The room over
the stoic was fitted up for a general
assembly room and here every Tites
day cveuing religious services wero
hold in the Chinese language. On
Sundays tlio Chiistian Chinese at
tended services at the Bethel. The
Y. M. C. A. thus formed a center
for the Chincm Chiistian clement
which, as the members increased,
met later on the Sabbath, at the
Lyceum. In 1880, the Chinese
church was organized and eaily in
18S1 regulnr services began in the
neighboring edifice on Fort street.
The Y. M. C. A. had, in 18S0, a
membership of 120. It has aided
the church here in Honolulu with
generous pecuniary donalionsycarly,
has assisted in carrying forward
Christian work among' the Chinese
on the other Islands and has rendered
aid to the sick destitute. In 1882,
it was decided that it would be best
to discontinue the Nuuanu street
store and the amount derhed from
the sale of the stock of the same
was invested in a few acres of land
at Palatini, the annual income from
which has been devoted to Ihc above
mentioned objects aided by the
Society. During the year which is
now closing unusual interest has
been awakened in the Association
by some of its members, prominent
among whom has been its worthy
and zealous president Mr. Goo Kim.
With him, 1 think, originated tlio
idea of building this new Hall. He,
with the preacher, Mr. Mak, who
has lately returned to China, ably
assisted by a number of the mem
bers, have diligently labored for the
results which wc see here this even
ing realized. For some months this
matter has greatly interested the
minds of all the members both here
in Honolulu and at other points
on the Islands. Subscription pa
pers have been vigorously circu
lated and a generous response has
been the result. New and im
portant rules have been added to
those ahcady adopted which will
undoubtedly be of great service in
the future. The name of the orga
nization in Chinese is the "Yau Ilok
Kiluk Citing To Ui." As it has
been founcd by some Christian peo
ple that the Chinese Y. M. C. A.
Associations in California and on
these Islands might become mere
moral societies, such as Confucia
nism would as well produce, the
Christian element both in the name
and in the rules of the society has
been especially emphasized. The
officers of the society, president,
vice-president and treasurer, arc
required to be members of the
church, and worthy faithful men.
Idolatry and all that is not in har
mony with the teachings of the
Gospel is forbidden. Prayer and
reading of the Holy Scriptures form
a part of every regular meeting. A
very considerable number of the
members are already members of
the church, and wc hope and pray
that all may lie enrolled erelong as
firm believers in Christianity. It is
emphatically, as its name indicates,
a society of "learners." Every
new member takes a step away
from heathenism when he consents
to enter an organization of which,
not Confucius, but Jesus Christ is
the acknowledged head. We have
striven in the erection of this new
building to furnish a Christian home,
which shall, liy its cheerful and
attractive appearance, be itself an
illustration ot Christianity, the reli
gion above all others of true happi
ness. It is hoped and believed that
this will be a center from which
shall radiate inlhiciices which will
not only bless the Chinese on these
Islands, but assist in the moral and
spiritual regeneration of the vast
Empiie in Asia from which they
come. To-night wc meet to dedi
cate the most important Chinese
Y. M. C. A. 3Iall (so far as my
knowledge goesj') in point of size
and equipment, in the world. It is
a fact which sliould fill our hearts
with joyful encouragement, but
should at tliea same time be an in
centive to moire earnest and beseech
ing prayer that here may be en
shrined a spiritual life, whoso aspi
rations shall be ever heavenward
and Christward, and aglow with
philanthropic zeal and Christian
charity. It is a source of unfeigned
joy to myself and the members of
this association to note the presence
of such a large number of kind
friends and well-wishers. We see
iu this an indication of that good
will uml brotherly feeling which is
so rcmaikable a characteristic of
our cosmopolitan life. Wc meet
here to-night on tlio high plane of
Christian sympathy, brought to
gether, I humbly trust, by the
teachings and in the spitit of Him,
whose precepts are slowly but
guiding the nations of tlio
towards universal brother-
