HOW Till". DAT WAS OBSKIIVEU IN
Christmas has come and gone. It
is now a tiling of the past. The
morning opened out beautifully line
and the weather during the day
could not have been better. As
early as -1:30 o'clock the bells of
the Roman Catholic Cathedral com
menced to ring, calling tho members
of that church to tako part in the
low masses which continued until 9
o'clock. Large numbers of people
attended these services. Soon after
0 o'clock the bell of St. Andrew's
Cathedral summoned worshippers to
tuat cutiice. uy mat uour me town
was pretty well astir. The little
ones had probably been awako long
before that anxiously looking for
the arrival of that great Chrintmns
personage Santa Claus. Fire crack
ers and bombs were let off at inter
vals throughout the day. The ves
sels in the harbor were decorated
with flags tho effect being very
pretty. A number of sailors were
ashore from the men-of-war and
enjoyed themselves playing baseball
and horseback riding. Families met
round tho festive board at dinner,
to enjoy the good things of the sea
sou, and to paiticipatc in the dis
tribution of tho -presents from tho
usual Christmas tree among the
At St. Andrew's Cathedral the
special services were well attended.
On tho altar were beautiful boqucts
of flowers while at each end stood
pots of choice ferns. Tho win
(lows were tastily decorated with
huge potted ferns and palms and
largo palm leaves. Tho font was
also tlccornted with white llowcrs
and evergreens. At the G :30 o'clock
service the Bishop celebrated there
being 91 communicants. At a.
second celebration at 7:30 there
was 37 communicants the Rev. Alex.
Mackintosh celebrating. The choral
service at 9:30 o'clock was well at
tended, the Bishop preaching the
sermon. Al 11 : 15 the second con
gregation held full choral service
which was attended by a large and
fashionable congregation. The musi
cal portion of the service was (Inely
rendered by an augmented choir. It
included Bcrthold Tours To Drum
and Jubilate in F and an anthem
"Sing O Heavens," by the same
composer. The solo in the latter
was nicely sung by Miss Rose
Makee. The Christmas hymns "O
come all ye faithful" and "Hark,
the herald angels siug" were heart
ily sung by both choir and congre
gation. Tho scimon preached by
the pastor, Rev, Geo. Wallace, P.
D. was appropriate to the occasion.
In the afternoon a Hawaiian service
was held the Rev. Alex. Mackintosh
preaching, and also administering
the rite of holy baptism. The ser
vices for the day were concluded at
G o'clock by evensong, tho Rev. II.
II. Gowcn delivering the discourse.
At the Roman Catholic Cathedral
the early masses were attended by
exceedingly large congregations.
At 10 o'clock there was high ponti
fical mass with the Bishop of Olba
celebrant. The church was crowded
in every part, II R. II. Princess
Liliuokalani being among those
present. The St. Louis College
brass band played several selections,
and the music of the mass was well
rendered. Baptism of adults and
infants followed the mass. In the
afternoon at 3 o'clock a confirma
tion was held, followed by rosary
and the solemn benediction of most
The Royal Hawaiian Band gave a
most excellent concert ac Thomas
Square in the afternoon which was
fairly well attended. The opening
piece, a march "Merry Christmas"
was composed by David Nape, one
of the band boys. The programme
contained no less than seven new
pieces all of which were capitally
rendered and deservedly applauded.
In the evening there were numer
ous family dinner parties. A special
dinner was ptepared at the Hawaiian
Hotel by Manager W. M. Graham.
Tho menus were quito little works
of art and contained all the deli
cacies of the season. The dinner
was a most excellent one and a
credit to Mr. Lucas the elllcicnt
A JAPANESE CHRISTMAS.
The Japanese Christian commun
ity had their own Christmas celebra
tion last evening in the Lyceum.
The room was beautifully decorated.
Wreaths and festoons of evergreens,
sweet and lovely flowers, mottoes
and gilt slais, all arranged with a
delicacy of taste, made the room
very attractive. The Christinas
tree was hung with glittering orna
ments, and mound it were grouped
the various presents to be distribut
ed, some of them of high value, of
Japanese make. The Japanese la
dies were dressed in nalivo costume
of some gray material ; the young
gentlemen fioin the Consulate wero
also in tho flowing Japanese attire
with their family coat-of-arms on the
back and sleeves. Mfc Taro Ando,
the Consul-General, as Superintend
ent of tho Sunday School, had
charge of tho exercises. lie began
with an explanatory address in Jap
anese, which lie afterwards inter
preted in English. Rev. Dr. Hyde
offered prayer and gave a brief ad
dress. Some students from the
North Pacilic Missionary Institute
sang the Hawaiian Christmas hymn.
Teacheis and scholars from the Cen
tral Union S. S. sang part of the
Christmas Cantata of Immnuucl.
The Japanese led by Mrs. Miyama
at the organ, sang a hymn to a po
pular Japaneso melody. Tho whole
assembly joined in singing ono of
the Gospel hymns, and then tho
presents wero distributed to those
for whom they had been specially
given, J. T. WnterhousoSr., receiv
ing a splendidly embroidered Jap
anese silk quilt, in recognition of
his generous aid in tho free uso of
the Lyceum. Every one present
then received a slip of paper with a
number, and as tho gifts to which
that number was attached wero call
ed out and given away, great nierii
ment was occasioned by tho queer
combination of numbers and gifts,
There were cats mid monkeys, birds
and butterflies, fans and parasols,
toys and napkins, for eacli and
every one present. Then all wero
invited to parlako of caku and ico
cream at the tables in the adjoining
room. This is the first time tho Jup-
naesc havo celebrated Christinas in
Honolulu, and ns Dr. Hyde remark
ed, they can leach older Christian
nationalities how to do such things
with a heartiness, a kindliness, a
humor, and an elegance that have
never been shown before in this
city. A nation that has its monthly
festival f flowers, whose national
emblem is no beast or bird of prey,
but one of the loveliest of flowers,
may be expected to show in their
Christian life a refinement of feel
ing, a sweetness of spirit, a joyous
recognition of a Christian humanity,
from which the rest of the world
may learn how to make the most
and best of their religious privileges.
There was no formalism, no asce
ticism, no pietism, no crucifix to be
adoicd in semi-idolatrous fashion,
but a whole-souled delight in God's
gifts and God's service, which it
was a joy to witness. Eight were
baptized last Sunday evening in
profession of their faith in Christ.
One of these was a young man of
good family, but for the last six
years a wanderer, profligate and
dissolute, till the grace of God
brought him to himself and to Christ
the Redeemer. II.
