FRIDAY. DEC. 24, 188G.
VACATION DAYS IN THE TROPICS.
BY REV. T. R. O. mCK.
Do not let my lust letter lead you
to infer the rapid piogress of this
people in all that is good merely
lrom what has been accomplished in
the matter of education. I would
go mound with you, as Dr. Hyde
has gone around with me this morn
ing, among the native churches of
the place. I would show you large
congregations of native Ilawaiinns
singing the songs of Zion, and listen
ing lo tho ttuths of the gospel, as if
these islands had never known any
thing but the gospel. I would show
you their Sunday-schools filled with
the blight, enger faces of young peo
ple and children. 1 would take you
into their p.-ayer-niectings and mis
sionary concerts, and let yon see
how freely these people, so recently
heathen themselves, give of their
substance for the benefit of mission
churches in foreign lands. And
fi om those churches of the native
folk, I would take you to the
churches devoted lo the foreign
population who have taken up their
abode among them. There is no
class of foreigners here so numerous
as tho Chinese. You meet them at
every corner, with their almond
eyes, shaven foreheads, blue shirts,
and braided pig-tails encircling their
heads. They aic the Yankees of this
part of the 'Pacific, ubiquitous, in
dustrious, entci prising, and peisist
cnt. They have long lines of shops,
aic honest in trade, exemplary in
practice, and in these respects afford
a strong conttast to their country
men in many other places. In tlie
houses of the wealthy residents they
are indispensable as servants, and
always, I learn, faithful to the trust
imposed in them. Some have come
over from their native country con
vex ts of the missionaties there, with
letters of lecomniendation to
churches here; but the great major
ity have come with no leligion at all,
save tlie superstitions of their own
land. It vas natural, thercfoie,
that they should awaken the atten
tion and excite the sympathies of
the Christian people of Honolulu,
and that they should seek to bring
the influences of the gospel to hear
upon them. And this they have
done, and a large congregation has
been gathcied, and a chinch erected
for their woiship. Over tlie door
are the words, in great gilded Chi
nese characters, "Jesus' House,"
and entering, I found the good-si.ed
building full of eager listeners. The
women occupied one-fourth of the
church, and the men tiie lcmainder.
Mothcts sat ou tlie steps at the en
hance to the church witli their little
babes in their arms, while the older
children, in their neat Chinese
dresses, played on the grass in fiont
of the door. It was a pretty sight.
The childien played, while tlie
niollieis sat near ho they could
watch the children at tlie same time
that they received the benefit of the
services. Below was tlie Sunday
school room, and in the rear tlie fine
large building known as tlie "Chi
nese Young People's Christian Asso
ciation," with a hospital ward at
tached for; any who were sick, and
furnished chambers for those who
were1 homeless. Hung around the
w$dls were i!fe rules of tho Assocja
'orf, altd maps and prints in tlie
Chinese tongue. I never was more
pleasantly iniprcssediwitli any efforts
put forw:d for the benefit of any
cla?stiinn those 'put forward for the
Chinese here.. Mr. Frank Damon,
the superintendent of tlie mission,
and who speaks the Chinese lang
uage like a native, is still n young
man, an indefatigable woikcr, and
in every way adapted to deal with
these people of the Flowery land.
As such, he more than deserves th'o
commendation, the sympathy, the
assistance of every society and or
ganization in our land who have for
their object the spiritual benefit of
this most interesting people.
In a long ride which I have taken
with my friend, Dr. Hyde, who
occupies a most impoitant position
hero as thp licad of the "North
Pacific Missionary Institute," and
who seems lo have had a hand in
eveiy prominent educational and re
ligious enterprise connected with
t)iese islands for the past ten years,
lie showed me a large plot of land
eligibly situated in tlie subuibsof
tlie town which had been donated
for tlie purpose of establishing a
school for the mental and physical
tunning of native boys. Already a
fine artesian well has been bored and
the grounds partially worked for the
erection of the buildings. In this,
loo, wo must acknowledge tho lib
erality of tiie Bishop family, Mrs,
11. having loft some four hundred
thousand doliors for this nnd simi
lar purposes. A girls' school, of a
like character, is to be established
on the other sido of tho town.
And so I might go on and tell you
of institution after institution organ
ised hero for the moral, mental and
physical improvement of these na
tive classes, and all, I may say,
moro or less intimately associated
with the missionary work first started
heio somo fifty years ago. There
are hospitals for tho diseased, a
prison school for the convicts, asy
lums for tho old nnd decrepit, like
the Luualilo Homo which 1 visited
to-day, nativo schools, foieign
schools, government schools, pri
vate schools, elementary schools,
and schools preparatory to a college
course. In one morning, Dr. Hyde
was kind enough to talec mo to visit
at least a dozen, and all within a
comparatively small radius. Tho
atmosphere is full of rudimentary
instruction. You breatho the air of
literature all around you. English,
too, is universally taught, the Biblo
used as a text-book, and in one
school 1 saw the Aniciiean and Ha
waiian Hags gracefully intertwined.
There is no reason why these Ha
waiian people should not become tho
best educated people in the world.
And yet, believe me, all this effoit
put forth for their mental and moral
improvement is attended with no
little discouragement nnd even oppo
sition. Tlie discouragement comes
from the moral apathy of the race
to avail themsehes of these benefits,
their sensual temperament, their in
bred superstition, improvident habits
and utter lack of lesponsibility. In
spite of good education and faithful
moral training tlie original savage
will occasionally crop out, and it
will take two or three generations at
least fully to ciadicate it. And the
opposition comes, whence perhaps
you would least have expected it,
from Government circles. From
what I have heaid I am led to infer
that neither the King nor his Cabi
net lend their approval or encourage
ment to what is being done by
Christian people here. The term
"Missionary" is a ditAateful term to
them, and they seek to make it a
term of opprobiiuin with others.
But the people in their own time
will vindicate these their noble and
disinterested benefactors, and when
King and Cabinet shall have long
since ceased to be remembered, their
names will be treasured as the most
precious legacies of the nation.
