A handcaut belonging to a native
ran away on Queen street, near
Brewers', this forenoon, almost
causing a stampedo of horses, which
probably looked upon the audacious
vehicle as infringing on their privi
leges. The cart was carelessly left
unfastened, and, being caught by n
heavy gust of wind, went Hying with
great velocity along the street. One
of Ilttstaco & Robertson's baggage
teams was hitched near Levey's auc
tion room, and thu fugitive handcart
ran violently against the wagon,
almost overturning it and putting
the horse into tantrums. A saddlu
horse, tied up at the same spot, rose
on his hind logsto the stailling nov
elty of (ho occasion, and exhibited
his pluck by trying to gott off on an
even shut if it was going to bo a
rai-o. However, the horses were
quieted down and the handcart was
perambulated back to the starting
point of its wild career. Xow that
handcarts have become infected with
the runaway mania, while so ninny
of them arc In use, people on the
streets can never consider themselves
out of danger.

A NEW BUILDINC.
One of the additions mado to our
city architecture during the present
season is the Chinese Y. M. C. A.
building, near the corner of Fort
and Berctania streets. The build
ing is a neat two-story structure, 38
feet front and GO feet deep. The
ceiling is 11 feet high in the lower,
and 1G in the upper story. Spacious
verandahs run across the front and
rear of the building. Easy stairways
lead from both verandahs to the
upper Hut. The main apaitmcnt on
thu lower floor is the reading room,
on the table of which are to bo found
Hongkong, Shanghai and San Fran
cisco papers, New Testaments,
Pilgrim's Progress, Evidences of
Christianity and other religious lite
rature. The table will bo further
supplied with the Illustrated Chris
tian Weekly of New York, in .Eng
lish, and also with the Honolulu
papers. The walls are hung with
pictorial illustrations of tho para
bles, in which tho chaiacters are all
represented in Chinese costume.
The "measures of meal" parable
shows a happy faced Chinese gude
wifo at tho kneading trough, with
the face of a bouncing "babby"'
peering out of a basket on tho floor
near by. Holman Hurst's Light of
the World, framed, the map of
Paul's travels and the Departure of
Rebecca are also displayed. The
pictures ate from tho press in
Hankow, GOO miles up the Yaug tse
KlaiiK River, and ate the contribu
tions of the Chinese themselves. To
the tight of the leading room is a
small room containing the safe, and
book depository, and another to be
used as a class room. A fine map,
hung in the class room, deserves
more than a passing notice. It is
the woik of a Chinese native preacher
in Canton city, and is a very elabo
rate piece of topographical execu
tion, with a large amount of informa
tion appended,"rclaling to the coun
tiy. The map is that of Quang
Tung (broad cast) Piovincc. Near
Hie center is Canton, and on the
south-east stands Hongkong. The
province has a population of 20,
000,000, and is tho solo scat of
Chinese emigration. Tho Chinese
of the Australian Colonics, tho
Pacific Coast and the Hawaiian
Islands are all from Quang Tung,
and no Chinese emigrate from any
other province. Looking at the
map, Mr. F. W. Damon remarked
that ho had traversed nearly every
district of Quang Tung, particularly
those from which the Chinese como
hero. Two doors open from the
realing room and class room into a
hall running across the flat, and
from which two coiridors dividing
this part of the building into three
sections, lead back to the rear
verandah. Between the corridors
are a store-room and three lodging
rooms, and the two side sections arc
divided equally into eight lodging
rooms. These lodging rooms will
bo let at reasonable rates to passing
and sojourning membcis, also to
residents if necessary.
The greater portion of tho upper
flat consists of a fine audience room,
12 by 38 feet, with a verandah in
front. Overhead, above the plat
form is a large sign-board, with the
title of the institution " Yau Hok
Kituk Clung To Ui " cut in relief
in large Chinese characters and
beautifully gilt. A pair of tablets,
one on each side of the platform
reach from the coiling to the floor,
with balanced inscriptions, forming
a dui, whatever that means. It is
a special piece of literary craft
among the Chinese to construct a
dui. It may aid the occidental bar
barian to understand the dui, to re
mark that every character on the
one tablet must be balanced by a
corresponding one, on the otiior.
The idea of pairing or balancing
pervades all Chinese notions of
arrangement. When Mr. Damon
put up a clock on the wall, a China
man's taste was offended because
ho had not "balanced" it with
another clock opposite! Each tablet
has eight characters, tho first four
being portions of maxims quoted
from Confucius, the other four com
pleting the maxim and giving it a
Christian application. The inscrip
tions as nearly as they can bo ren
dered in English are, Tho pure
heart the purified body i3 obtained
through reliance on Jesus Christ ;
"balanced" on the other tablet with
That which leads to virtue and to
propriety of life is a belief in the
Gospel. This dui is considered an
able feat in Chinese composition,
and was performed by Mr. To Teng
U, preacher in the Chinese church
and teacher of the boys school.
Fiom the upper rear verandah is
obtained a view bf that magnificent
natural panorama made up of tho
Pali, Punchbowl and the Nuuanu
In the rear of the building, there
is a small court around which is
erected a group of neat building,
one being for tiie uso of poor and
destitute Chinese who may bo
otherwise unprovided for ; ono con
taining rooms for women, wives of
members ; a third is a kitchen with
corrugated iron roof and a small
dining room and plate closet adjoin
ing. There arc about 300 members in
Honolulu and the other islands, and
a few in China. The building cost
about 5,000. The Chinese sub
scriptions amounted to some 2,000.
Friends in this city have put up
about 81,000 more. The society
has a lot of land at Palama, on
which it was proposed to place a
mortgage for 82,000. However, on
the intention to mortgage becoming
known, two gentlemen who had
already given 8100 each promised
to double their subscriptions if other
contributors would raise the re
mainder of the sum required before
the first of April, without having
recourse to a mortgage. Tho Chinese
themselves arc doing all in their
power to pay everything off. The
probabilities are that the recniired
funds will be foithcoming before tho
first of April Mr. Damon, in rc
fening to this matter, duri ng an
interview by a rcpiescntativo of the
Bui.i.EiiN, expressed himself as fully
confident of success, for, to quote
his own words: "The people of
Honolulu are really tho most.' gen
erous in the world." In proof of
this bold assertion lie states that
when raising the subscriptions
already taken, tho sum of 800 was
booked in one day.
