A COMING VISITOR.
Jttrper's Jlazur says Mr. Locke
liicliarrison is gradually making his
way further west toward the Sand
wich Islands. The Gull says the
same gentleman is in San Francisco ;
that hu has been invited to accept a
chair in the American School of
opera, as professor of elocution;
lias cancelled nil his engagements in
Hie East, and purposes to visit the
Sandwich Islands, and possibly
Australia, before his return to New
Yoik. Possibly wc may have a
scries of entertainments from the
gentleman named during his stay
From an early hour this morning
omnibuses and other vehicles have
been rolling to the polls, laden with
thu "free and enlightened.", Voting
was very brisk all morning, 1150
ballots having been cast by one
o'clock this afternoon. There has
been no disturbance to speak about
in the Government yard, although it
is thronged with natives of both
sexes and many foreigners. The
Government party claimed to bo
about five hundred ahead at noon,
when they probably had polled most
of their stiength. Voters were still
keeping up a steady procession at
half-past one o'clock. There was a
good deal of haranguing going on
from the vutuku verandah of thu
Government building, but good
nature seemed to lulu the throngs.
A telephonic message from Kaneohc
states that the Independent candi
dates are well ahead in the districts
on that side of the Island, particu
lat ly mentioning Mr. Howell in
THE ROYAL VISIT TO KAU.
On Wednesday evening about six
o'clock, His Mnjestj and suite
landed at Kaalualu. The royal
visit was quite unexpected, and
consequently only the few residents
of the landing place were there to
welcome him. The King despatched
a messenger to Waiohinu for the
Honorable.? Judge Martin and J.
Kauhane, and those gentlemen were
in tho saddle by eight o'clock, en
route to meet His Majesty. Sur
mises as to the object of the royal
visit were various, but the general
opinion was that it was political, to
help the Cabinet party in the im
pending election, and yet it was im
possible to suppose that ho could
support a man of the stamp of the
opponent of an honorable man such
as J. Kauhane, who is said to be his
own near kinsman. His Majesty
dined with Mr. John Buck at Naa
lehu, on Saturday, where there was
a grand political spread for the
natives. There was to be political
music fiom tho Cabinet organs ; but
to thu honor of the royal Yisitor, be
it said, he stipulated that no poli
tical or party speaking would bo had,
and this arrangement was carried
out. His Majesty addressed the
people in a statesmanlike fashion,
and in answer to a question about
the rumored sale of the Islands,
said: "Tho rumor nbout the sale
of the Islands originated with a
newspaper reporter who had no au
thority or foundation for thu statu
ment. Thu Islands will jncver be
sold by me, for they belong to tho
whole people; but take care that
j'ou do not sell thorn yourselves. I
hear rumors of selling your ballots,
and a man who hi.i.i.3 his hai.i.ot
DULLS HIS COUXTItV. Act llOUCStly
and choose good men by your ballots,
and let it not bo said of any man
that ho has sold for money what
should bo most prized, his own in
dependence." These arc noblo
words, ably spoken, and their uttcr
anco lifted a cloud of suspicion.
His Majesty is thu guest of tho
Hon. Henry Martin, at Waioliinu,
and will return by the Hull on
Monday. Ono of tho objects of the
royal visit has been to look after
thu bones and relics of old chiefs,
of which numerous caves in the dis
trict aro tho depositories. On Sun
day, he attended tho native church,
and displayed Ills skill, as chancellor
of the ecclesiastical exchequer in
presiding over a collection, amount
ing to about SlfiO, for the use of
Honuapo church. His Majesty ex
ercised no little dexterity and wit in
raking in the coin, as well ns in the
way ho frequently brought down tho
liou.su with remarks on the leading
men unci their wealth. Com,

CHINESE N:W YEAR.
Last evening (he celebration of
Uiinuse New Year was begun by tho !
ceiescmi residents with universal
spirit. The streets in Chinatown
were transformed into beautiful
vistas of chromatics light, fiom
thousands of lanterns ranged in
mathematical lines from nloe and
below the everlasting verandahs. A
terrific bombardment of fireworks
was sustained against the slumbers
of all within earshot of celestial
domiciles through the livelong night.
Thu storo on tho ground lloor of the
Benevolent Society's new Club
Housc, King street, was chcorfully
lighted ui), and tho manager of the
linn was there to receive visitors.
Opposite the door was hung a
brilliantly-colored picture of nn
Imperial statesman of the remotest
antiquity, with his beautiful wife
and child, walking in nuclysian
bower. Ft was probably Fo-hi, tho
most famous of thu god-descended
personages, who, according to
Chinese history, ruled over tho
Empire and revealed to men the
essential arts of life. A table in
front of the picture was covered
with riclt ornaments and magnificent
bouquets that seemed to blond with
thu bloom and foliage on the canvas.
Two rows of handsome chairs were
ranged at right angles with thtso
center decorations, and in one of
them sat a well-dressed and comely
little Mongolian boy. Many passers
by were attracted by thu rather
pretty scene, pausing to take it all
A hideous noise like the beating
of a thousand coal oil cans by an
army of urchins, the firing of com
bustible crackers and the clamor of
a hundred Chinamen on Niumnu
street this forenoon announced tho
coming of the Chinese dragon. Tho
procession stopped in front of the
principal Chinese, houses, and while
batteries of lire crackers were ex
ploding, the dragon would rush for
ward with mouth open and fangs
projecting, as though to destroy
imaginary victims, but retreating at
tho fantastic movement of a magical
wand iu the hands of a coolie.
While tho riot continued pcoplo in
upper windows pelted the dragon
with sweet potatoes.

An address was read by Mr. C.
Alee, Commercial Chinese Agent, in
Cliineso, and by Mr. C. Winam, in
English. Following is thu address :
To-day is our Cliineso New Year,
a day which it lias been our custom
from time immemorial to celebrate
ns we celebrate no other In the year.
It is a day to which we look for
ward with tho most pleasing antici
pations, and being Election Day for
tliis nation it is also mcmorablo on
that account. May the representa
tives nov chosen bo men of wisdom
to direct aright the councils of this
much favored land. It gives us the
greatest pleasure to express on be
half of our countrymen tho gratifi
cation wo feel on being honored upon
tho entry into this our new Socioty
house with tho presence of so many
of our friends. Wo trust that the
mutual friendly relations that have
existed between us in thu past may
continue in tho future- and grow
stronger as this Society grows in
usefulness. In our capacity as
President and Vice-President of this
Association wo, Cuing Alec and Gqo
Kim, feel it to bo our duty to make
a few remarks In reference- to tho
.future object and maintenance of
this Society. In compliance with
the suggestion of His Excellency
Ching, Chinese Minister at Washing
ton, this Association was formed
under ttie name of "Chung Wa Ui
Qwuu" The Tinted Chinese So
cietyin 1882, and on the 27th day
of August, 1881, it was properly
organised under charter of incor
poration granted by His Excellency
Charles T. Gulick, Minister of the
Interior of the Hawaiian Kingdom.
As we had no place of our own in
which to hold our regular meetings
during the past four years, thu China
Engine Company No. f has been
so kind as to lend its hall to us.
This Society building is now com
pleted entirely through tho voluntary
assistance of our Chinese residents
in the Hawaiian Kingdom. Our
object iu forming this association is
to exercise n care and supci vision
over such of the Chinese- residents
as shall connect themselves with this
Society; to make them acquainted
with the laws and ordinances of the
Hawaiian Government, particulaily
with those laws and ordinances which
concern iu any way our Chinese resi
dents; to render assistance and
advice to such as may stand in need
thereof, especially to sick Cliineso
and those in destitute condition
to pi event and settle disputes among
Chinese if possible, and to prevent,
as far as it ma be m our power, all
unlawful conbinations or posting of
seditious or otherwise objectionable
placards, and to render such aid to
the Government as they may request
or authorize in matters pertaining to
the Chinese residents iu this king
dom. All the future funds for main
tenance of this Society aic to be
raised from the Chinese residents.
Wc therefore trust that the purposes
of this Society shall be attained,
that it will grow in its benevolenco
and usefulness, and that its ofllccrs
shall ever administer its affairs in
tho spirit iu which it was founded,
that it may bo of advantage not
only to ourselves but to the non-
Chinese residents of this community i
and that through it you may obtain
true glimpses of Cliineso customs
and manners. Wc now by virtue
of the ofllcial position delegated to
us as President and Vice-President of
the United Chinese Society declare
this Ilnll open.
A magnificent triangular yellow
flag, with an enormous dragon
spread on it, the Chinese Imperial
flag, floated from the tall flagpole
on the roof. An able-bodied police
man stood at each side of the door
at the foot of the stair leading to
the tipper Hat where thu reception
and collation were given. The
rooms on this floor aru handsomely
furnished. Over the doorways wcro
hung Hawaiian and Chinese Hags,
tastefully arranged. A steady
throng of visitors poured into tho
building, from the hour' of opening
until about half-past one r. m.
Visitors received the initiatory hand
shaking from Mr. IIoFon, who stood
on the landing robed in a suit of
green silk. Oflicers ofjthe Society,
Messrs. C. Alec, Goo Kim, Wong
Kwai, C. Winam, Lan Chung, Yim
Quon, L. Ahlo, L. Tukong, Loo
Chit . Sam, Lam Ching Wa, Wee
Siting and C. Mow Kcong, did the
honors of the occasion and were

guests, who were ushered in to the
