Sir : Yours of 22d, in re pur
chase of "Record" is received.
1 have looked carefnlly at this
law,- and see no power delegated
therein, to anybody, to compel me
to purchase for $3.00 a book sold

But it isn't the amount it's the prin-ciple-lhat
I object to. If I don't
obeythe law, the remedy is pro
vided by law. Your letter concludes
"per direction of the Minister of

to me who directs it, if it is an un
authorized "direction," as I con

respectfully decline to entertain it.

SATURDAY NIGHT'S FIRE.
About twenty minutes past nine
o'clock Saturday night, a native dis
covered fire in a house corner of
Kinau and Piikoi streets. An alarm
was turned in by Mr. F. P. Hastings
which was responded to by the fire
department. Mrs. John II. Brown
owns the house and it was occupied
by Mrs. Thiele. The latter with her
family were in town at the time.
The house was burned to the ground
nothing but a chair being saved.
The furniture was insured for $2000
and the house for $1250.
Pressure on our space compels a
full report of Saturday's fair to bo
deferred. The interior of the Rifles
Armory, where it was held presented
a most magnificent appearance. It
was a sight rarely seen in this city.
The different booths appeared to do
a thriving business, and the net pro
ceeds should show a large sum, to
add to the funds of the Hooulu and
Iloola Society. The Royal Hawai
ian band played during the after
noon and evening.
MR. GRAENHALCH'S AFFAIRS.
By the Mariposa letters were re
ceived from W". II. Graenhalgh,
dated San Francisco, in which lie
states that his father's estate had
been settled, and his brother was on
Ins way from the East with the
money. He found that some one of
his creditors had tried to garnishee
the money. Mr. Graenhalgh further
states that he was about to leave for
London, and on his return come to
the islands, pay 100 cents on the
dollar and settle down here for good
as the climate suited him.
This morning Mr. T. G. Thrum
took possession of Graenhnlgh's
store, believing he had the right to
do so under the mortgage. Dec.
A SUNDAY SCHOOL'S GIFTS.
Instead of the pupils attending
the Central Union Sunday School
receiving gifts as per usual custom,
they met in the church last Thurs
day evening and made gifts them
selves for worthy objects of charity.
It had been suggested by thu teach
ers that each pupil should make a
money gift to be devoted to assist
the funds of the Mission Sunday
Schools, and for making Xmas gifts
to the leper children on Molokai.
The pupils responded in a hand
some manncr,thc sum of $259 being
collected. Considerably more than
ouc-lialf of this has been expended
in purchasing clothing, toys and
candies for the leper children. A
committee of ladies had the matter
The sarno evening $100 was rais

the Kawaiakao Female Seminary.
The American baseball players
arrived at Auckland, Dec. 10th, and
Sydney on tho 14th. Their first
gar.e given at the lattor place on tho
15th was attended by over ten
thousand people. The interest of
tho spectators was held tho entire
game, which was a good one.
Sunday oyening the Central Union
Sunday School gave an excellent
rendition of the Christmas Cantata
"IuimanucI," A large platform
had been erected in fiout of the
organ on which the children wero
seated and the floral decorations
were beautiful. The Cantata was
conducted by Mr. A. D. Bissell and
the children deserve great credit for
the manner in which they interpreted
tho pretty music. Mr. Myron II.
Jones presided at tho organ in a
very able manner. A brief address
was delivered by the pastor Rev. E.
G. Beckwith, D. D. A very large
audience was in attendance.
A THIEF AT WORK.
On Sunday morning between the
hours of eleven and one o'clock the
residence of Mrs. J. E. Barnard,
Queen street, was entered by n
thief, and a gold watch and $53
carried off. When the family le
turned from the church they found
the contents of a bureau scattered
all over the house and the watch
and monoy missing. The polico
were informed and, upon investiga
tion,, it was evident that the thief
ha,d galled admittance through a
window in reajr of the house, as a
small ladder was near by. There

HOW TUB DAY WAS ODSKHVED IN
Christmas has come and gone. It
is now a thing of the past. The
mmning opened out beautifully flue
atid the weather dining the day
could not have been better. As
early as 1:30 o'clock tho bells of
the Romau Catholic Cathedral com
menced to ring, calling the 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
that edifice. By that hour the town
was pretty well astir. The little
ones had probably been awake long
before that anxiously looking for
the arrival of that great Christinas
personage Santa Clans. Fire crack
ers and bombs wero let off at inter
vals throughout the day. The ves
sels in thu harbor were decorated
witli flags the 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 the festive board at dinner,
to enjoy the good things of the sea
son, and to participate in the dis
tribution of the presents from the
usual Christmas tree among the
At St. Andrew's Cathedral the
special services were well attended.
On the altar were beautiful boqucts
of flowers while at each end stood
pots of choice ferns. The win
dows were tastily decorated with
huge potted ferns and palms and
large palm leaves. The font was
also decorated with white flowers
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 87 communicants the Rev. Alex.
Mackintosh cclebiating. The choral
service at 9 :30 o'clock was well at
tended, tho Bishop preaching the
sermon. At 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 finely
rendered by an augmented choir. It
included Berthold Tours To Dcum
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 sing" were heart
ily sung by both choir and congre
gation. The seimon preached by
the pastor, Rev, Geo. Wallace, Bj;
D. was appioprinte 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, the Rev. II.
II. Gowen 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 chin ch was crowded
in every part, II II. II. Princess
Liliuokalani beiiiff amoiiff 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 at Thomas
Square in the afternoon which was
fairly well attended. The opening
piece, a march "Merry Christmas"
was composed by David Nape, one
of tho band boys. The programme
contained no less than seven new
pieces all of which weie capitally
rendered and deservedly applauded.
In the evening there were numer
ous family dinner parties. A special
dinner was prepared at the Hawaiian
Hotel by Manager W. M. Graham.
The menus were quite little works
of art and contained all the deli
cacies of tho season. The dinner
was a most excellent one and a

A JAPANESE CHRISTMAS.
The Japanese Christian commun
ity had their own Christinas celebra
tion Inst evening in tho Lyceum.
Tho room Was beautifully decorated.
Wreaths and festoons of evergreens,
sweet and lovely flowers, mottoes
and gilt stars, all arranged with a
delicacy of taste, made the room
very attractive. The Christmas
tree was hung with glittering orna
ments, and aiound it were grouped
the various presents to bo distribut
ed, sonic of thorn of high value, of
Japaneso make. The Japanese la
dies were dressed in native costume
of some gray material ; the young
gentlemen from the Consulate were
also in the flowing Japanese attire
with their family coat-of-arms on the
back and sleeves. Mr. Tnro Ando,
the Consul-Gcncral, as Superintend
ent of the Sunday School, had
charge of the exercises. He begau
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 Pacific Missionary Institute
sang the Hawaiian Christmas hymn.
Teachers and scholars from the Cen
tral Union S. S. sang pait of the
Christmas Cantata of Immanuel
The Japanese led by Mrs. Miyama
at the organ, sang a hymn to a po
pular Japanese melody. The whole
assembly joined in singing one of
tho Gospel hymns, and then the
presents were distributed to those
for whom they had been specially
given, J. T. Watei house Sr., receiv
ing a splendidly embroidered Jap
anese silk quilt, in recognition of
his generous aid in the free use of
the Lyceum. Every one present
then received a slip of paper witli a
number, and as the gifts to which
that number was attached were call
ed out and given away, groat merri
ment was occasioned by the queer
combination of numbers and gifts.
There were cats and monkeys, birds
and butterflies, fans and paiasnls,
toys and napkins, for each and
every one present. Then all were
invited to partake of cake and ice
cream at the tables in the adjoining
room. This is the first time the Jap
anese have celebrated Clnistmas in
Honolulu, and as Dr. Hyde remark
ed, they can teach older Christian
nationalities how to do such tilings
witli a heartiness, a kindliness, a
humor, and an elegauce that have
never been shown before in this
city. A nation that has its monthly
festival of flowers, whose national
emblem is no beast or bird of prey,
but one of the loveliest of flowers,
may l; 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
adoiod 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 anu
dissolute, till the grace of God
brought him to himself and to Christ
the Redeemer. II.
CRUSHED TO DEATH.
A telephone message from Wai
anae at a quarter past three o'clock
this afternoon gives the information
that a native boy, six years of age,
was crushed to death on the planta

Death was instantaneous. Dec. 27.
It will be lomembercd that the
recent performance of selections
from the opera of Patience by ama

efforts of Lieut. E. R. Pears

der to show some appreciation of
his valuable services, those who took
part in the performance decided to
present him with a small token, as a
souvenir of the occasion. This took
the form of a polished kou calabash
mounted on boars' tusks, tipped
with silver. On ono side of the
calabash was a small silver plate with
the inscription "Patience, Honolulu,

A SAD ACCIDENT.
It is with much regret we an
nounce the death of Charles, eldest
son of Rev. W. B. Olcson, Principal
of the Kamehanicha School, which
took place Tuesday evening, from
the results of an accident. Early
that morning the little fellow who was
12 years of age, went to the Prepa
ratory school to distribute presents
among the pupils. A short time
after, one of the teachers discovered
him sitting on a chair holding his
leg up, and a pool of blood on the
floor. Upon examination it was
found that the artery just below the
knee had been cut right off, and a
large piece of glass remained in tho
wound. Dr. J. S. McGrew was at
once summoned and arrived quickly,
but was unable to do anything on
account of the great loss of blood.
The poor boj' died at half past five
o'clock in the evening. No ono saw
the accident happen, but there is no
doubt the little fellow walked right
into a glass door which he was un
able to see owing to it being rather
daik at the time. The sad affair cast
quite a gloom over the institution. Mr.
and Mrs. Oleson and family haye
the heartfelt sympathy of the entire
community in their sad loss. The
funeral took place this afternoon at
tlneo o'clock from the family resi
dence at the school.

Geo. Houghtailing went his surety.
Hons lived upstairs in a house
on Union street opposite the Fashion
Stables. The police have had for a
long time past a strong suspicion
that gambling was carried on there.
Complaints have been lodged at the
Station House about tho place.
Capt. Larsen has been on tho look
out for sornetimo for a waj' to get
into the house in doublo quick time.
Tills morning between the hours
of ono and two o'clock he accom
plished his object with very little
trouble, Taking aong two native
polico officers as eye vitiiessos, Lar

into a room where was Hons and
half a dozen of Honolulu's young
bloods shaking dloo for half dollar
corners. "It was tho worst scared
crowd I ever saw," said Larseu to a
reporter this morning. Larsen put

the young men ho was very sorry to
