CHINESE NEW YEAR.
Last evening the celebration of
Chinese Now Year was begun by tho
celestial residents with universal
spirit. The streets in Chinatown
were transformed into beautiful
vistas of chromatic light, from
thousands of lanterns ranged in
mathematical lines from above and
below the everlasting verandahs. A
tcrrlllc bombardment of fliuworka
was sustained against tltc slumbers
of all within earshot of celestial
domiciles through the livelong night.
The store on the ground iloor of the
Benevolent Society's new Club
House, King street, was cheerfully
lighted up, and the manager of the
firm was there to receive visitors.
Oupositc the door was hung a
brilliantly-colored picture of an
Imperial statesman of the remotest
antiquity, with his beautiful wife
and child, walking in anelysian
bower. It was probably Fo-hi, the
most famous of the god-descended
personages, who, according to
Chinese history, ruled over the
Empire and revealed to men the
essential arts of life. A table in
front of the picture was covered
with rich ornaments and magnificent
bouquets that seemed to blend with
the bloom and foliage on the canvas.
Two rows of handsome chairs were
ranged at right angles with these
center decorations, and in one of
them sat a well-dressed and comely
little Mongolian boy. Many passers
by were attracted by the 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 Nuuanu
street this forenoon announced the
coming of the Chinese dragon. The
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
the fantastic movement of a magical
wand in the hands of a coolie.
While the riot continued people in
upper windows pelted the dragon
with Bwect potatoes.
Or-ENING OF THE CLUB HOUSE.
The ceremonies connected with
the formal opening of the New Chi
nese Club House commenced at 11
o'clock. The Royal Hawaiian Band
had taken a position in front of the
building at 7 o'clock, and played in
their usual effective style, and were
relieved a little before eleven by the
Reformatory School Band. Accord
ing to previous announcement and
invitation, there were present: Her

kalani ; His Majesty's Chamberlain

An address was read by Mr. C.
Alee, Commercial Chinese Agent, in
Chinese, and by Mr. C. Winam, in
English. Following is the address :
To-day is our Chinese New Year,
a day which it has been our custom
from time immemorial to celebrate
as we celebrate no other in the year.
It is a day to which ,jYe look for
ward with the most pleasing antici
pations, and being Electjon Day for
this nation it is also memorable on
that account. May the.representa
tivos now chosen be 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
the entry into this our new Socioty
house with tho presence of so many
of our friends. We trust that the
mutual friendly relations that havo
existed between us in the past mny
continue in tho future and grow
stronger as this Society grows in
Usefulness. In our capacity as
TH1U SAIL'S 'TJUIHTm flWMAft HOHOLtffcty, H, X, TmJRSBAT,
President and Vlec!Fro8ldeht of this
Association wJ Chlng Alee and Goo
Kim, feel it to be our duty to mako
a few remarks in reference to tho
futuro object and maintenance of
tlus Society. In compliance with
thfc suggestion of His Excellency
Cuing, Chinese Minister at Washing
ton, this Association was formed
under the name of "Chung Wa Ui
Qwun" The United Chinese So
cietyin 1882, and on the 27th day
of August, 1884, it was properly
organized 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, the China
Engine Company No. 5 has been
so kind as to lend its hall to us.
This Society building is now com
pleted entirely through the voluntary
assistance of our Chinese lesidcnts
in the Hawaiian ivingdom. uur
object in forming this association is
to exercise a care and supei 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, particularly
with those laws and ordinances which
concern in any way our Chinese resi
dents; to render assistance and
advice to such as may stand in need
thereof, especially to sick Chinese
and those in destitute condition
to prevent and settle disputes among
Chinese if possible, and to prevent,
as far as it may be in 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 in this king
dom. All the future funds for main
tenance of this Society arc to be
raised from the Chinese residents.
Wo therefore trust that the purposes
of this Society shall be attained,
that it will grow in its benevolence
and usefulness, and that its olllccrs
shall ever administer its affairs in
the spirit in which it was founded,
that it may be of advantage not
only to ourselves but to the uon
Chincsc residents of this community,
and thai through it you may obtain
true glimpses of Chinese customs
and manners. We now by virtue
of the olllcial position delegated to
us as President and Vice-President of
the United Chinese Society declare
this Hall 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 upper flat where the reception
and collation were given. The
rooms on this floor are handsomely
furnished. Over the doorways were
hung Hawaiian and Chinese flags,
tastefully arranged. A steady
throng of visitors poured into the
building, from the hour of opening
until about half-past one r. it.
Visitors received the initiatory hand
shaking from Mr. HoFon, who stood
on the landing robed m a suit of
green silk. Olllccrs ofjthe Society,
Messrs. C. Alee, Goo Kim, Wong
Kwai, C. Winam, Lan Chung, Yim
Quon, L. Ahlo, L. Tukong, Loo
Chit Sam, Lam Citing Wa, Wee
Shing and C. Mow Keong, did the
honors of the occasion and were
assiduous in their attentions to the
guests, who were ushered in to the'
dining tables. A splendid collation,
turkey and other meats, salads,
sandwiches, wines, and tea was
spread and duly honored. Feb.

appointed to formulate the views of the
Board on the advantages offered by tha
Bociety to the public, report:
1st The Society Issues all the approv.
ed forms of nssurance, including Ordl.

which form of policy is taken by in
2d The Llfo and Endowment forms
of policy provide for annual cash dlvi
dends and a surrender value; are lndis
putablo after three years and payable
immediately after proof of death.
8d The premiums on a Tontine po
licy are the same as on tho Ordinary
Life, but, while tho latter is only pay.
ablo in the event of death, the holder of
tho Tontine policy has the right to draw
tho whole of tho reserve and tho accu
mulatcd profits in cash at the end of a
stated period ; thus, during his own life
time, after his producing years are past,
he can, without any larger premium
than on an ordinary policy, secure these
4th Experience shows that tho return
paid in cash on maturing Tontine po
licies approximates to or exceeds the
amount of premiums paid by policy
holders, so that tho average cost of the
assurance will bo only about tho Interest
on the premiums.
Cth Tontlno policies, like others, arc

timo during the term of the policy, and
are incontestable oftcr three years, and,

kind of assurances, which is a consider
able source of profit.
7th Tontine policies will be made
non-forfeitable under tho laws of ths
State, if so desired at the time tho as
surance is effected.
8th The Tontine system is fair and
