Tho Maui Election.
Tho oloctiou is over, and tho Maui
Noblo voters havo with a majority
of 73 declared thoir approval of tho
policy pursued by Hon. V. li. Uorn
woll, aud thoir want of confidence in
Messrs. Thurston, Baldwin and tho
othor Maui Nobles. Tho election of
Hon. W. H. Cornwoll has given gon
oral satisfaction here, not because a
voto more in tho House has beon
given to tho loyal party, but on ac
count of tho political significance
involved in his return. It moans
Cfiat-tho power of tho Reform party
is brokon on Maui. It means that
tho formerly almighty Baldwin is re
duced to represent a minority, and
it moans that a largo number of
votors, whom I expect tho Adver
tiser will stigmatize as "rabblo" and
Mr. Thurston as "toughs." havo
placed themselves in opposition to
tho "Constitutional principle," an
nexation and all tho pot scliomes of
Mr. Thurston and Co.
Tho election wont on quiotly and
orderly. It was no walk-over for
Mr. Cornwoll, as tho Eoform party
used all tho tricks so natural for
that crowd. Mr. Thurston's infam
ous editorial in tho Advertiser of tho
22d of Novombor had boon printed
in pamphlet form aud scattered
broadcast. As ovorybody know tho
inside facts of tho Crown land busi
ness, out of which Mr. Thurston
tried to make capital, his gross mis
statement did Mr. Cornwoll moro
good than harm.
Tho Reform campaign was man
aged by Tax Assessor - in - Chief
Dickoy and Deputy Sheriff L. An
drews. Tho attention of tho authori
ties is called to tho active interest
thoso two gentlemen took in tho
oloctiou contrary to law. Character
istic for Mr. Baldwin and his millions
was also tho groat number of chal
lenges made at all polling places by
Mr. Hocking's lunns. While Mr.
Cornwoll's party did not challongo
one voto, in Kahului alone Mr. F.
Stolz challenged twenty, although
tho moil wore allowed to voto at t ho
last olootion (for a Roform candi
date) under tho samo qualifications.
Mr, Cornwoll goes to Honolulu to
day together with his valuable
friond, Noblo Peterson, and ho takes
with him tho best wishes from, his
Maui constituents, who by thoir
votos now havo expressed a desire to
see him reinstated in tho ministerial
office of which ho was deprived by
such mon as Thurston and Baldwin,
of whom Maui wants no moro.

Miss Hopper. Miss Loniso F,
Dale, loador of tho choir, also
took part at times on the piano.
Considering that the choir as organ
ized had not had much lime for
practice, tho musical portion of tho
sorvicos woro highly creditable,
Roy. W. B. Oleson. tho first speak
er, discoursed on "Tho House for
tho People." Tho avowed purpose
in erecting the building was to make
it a spiritual homo for tho people of
Honolulu. Tho founder of our reli
gion dealt with mon on a common
level. It was the people's house bo
causo it was God's house. No man
would willingly stand oulsido tho
gates of tho celestial city bocauso it
was too beautiful and glorious with
in. Lot no ono absent himself from
this house of God bocauso of any
real or fancied contrasts between
what ho is and what it is. It was
thoir house whether believers or
not, theirs bocauso of tho message it
had for them. They needed tho
gospel aud tho ministrations of this
house of God. Let this house be
tho house of tho people, in the spirit
of tho example of Jesus, aud Hono
lulu may well blostho day that over
its stones woro laid ami its doors
thrown wido open.
Rov. O. P. Emorson spoke on "Tho
Houso for tho Children," Child life
was tho central feature of tho house.
Tho church was tho larger homo
and children hold to it as closo rela
tions as to tho private house. Thoy
wanted first tho children for tho
houso. Somo foared a chill from
worship in this great stouo house,
but tho childron Hocking in would
break that up. They woro to bo tho
congregation of the future Thoso
who were children forty years ago
in tho old churcli, with thoir families
form tho bulk of tho congregation
to-day. Childron needed tho church,
needed tho spiritual life of which it
was tho center, needed to bo born
into tho family of God.
Rov. Dr. Hyde's topic was "Tho
llouo for tho Church." The build
ing had boon erected as a houso of
worship for the Central Union
Church. Everything in it marked
it as a place of" worship, tt was not
a temple from which tho "profane
and vulgar crowd" woro excluded.
Yot tho luiildiiur was not so churchlv
as to indicate a purely ecclesiastical
structuto. Prayer and praise woro
evidently contemplated as tho object
of tho building, but not as though
theio alono mon could fittingly wor
ship God. Instruction and fellow
ship woro co-ordinate objects in tho
aim and arrangements of this church.
This houso of worship, as that old
Saxon namo signifies, is tho place
wlioro worth is honored and worthi
ness is sought. Tho speaker believed
that a more distinctive name than
Central Union could have beon
found, yot not so aggressive as tho
epithet often applied to it in derisive
contumely "tho missionary church."
But neither sueors nor slander could
contiovert the fact that this build
ing stands as a memorial of tho
work of those whoo successors thoy
wore. Thoy onjoyed this fruit of
tho labors of thoso missionary fathers
aud mothers of whom tho world was
not worthy. Whoever outers this
house should fool at once that this
is tho spiritual homo of a live chuich,
instinct in ovory part with tho spirit
Now Central Union Church, Corner
of fellowship through ministry to
tho higher needs of humanity, that
so God may be glorified. The church
must bo a houso of prayer for nil
people, drawn together by tho com
mon needs of a common humanity.
Rov. S. E. Bishop, on "Tho Houo
for Christ" said tho house was ab
solutely for Christ's uso, for thoir
own only as subservient to his. Most
gladly would tho Lord accept tho
gift, but not because of its beauty or
coumiodiousuess. Ho would accept
with as high honor that cheap little
Japanoso chapel at Hilo, built by
them with such joyful sacrifice. Ac
cepting this church Christ would
keep it from becoming a placo of
formal, stately worship. He would
make it tho homo of outpouring
prayer; of meeting Christian experi
ence; of mighty awakenings, when
souls aro brought into peuilenco
and the light of God. Hero tho
Saviour would niako ovory soul feol
through them a full welcome. None
so lowly, nono so sinful, that thoy
aro not completely wolcomo in
this houso of tho pardoning, com
forting, loving Shepherd of thoir
Hon. Alo. Young, on behalf of
tho Building Commit too, then trans
ferred tho church to tho Trustees,
with the following wouls:
"My Duais FitiBNns: After much
patient waiting, and no doubt a ten
dency on the part of somo to ex
claim that 'hope doforrod makoth
tho heart sick,' we now find our
selves snugly housed within tho
walls of our new church. Wo should
bo actuated this morning by feelings
of the most profound gratitude to
God, who in His kind providonco
has made this church and congre
gation tho possessors of such a mu
nificent gift as tho graceful, sub
stantial and commodious edifice wo
havo mot this morning to dedicate
to His service. With this thought
in mind I now, on behalf of tho
Building Committee, to whom was
entrusted tho orection and comple
tion of this now homo of ours, de
liver over the promises and keys to
the trustees of the Central Union
Church of Honolulu."
Mr. J. O. Carter, for tho trustees,
responded as follows:
(To tho Building Committee.)
"For the Trustees of tho Central
Union Chuich, in tho absence of our
honored president, it becomes 1113'
privilege to recoio these keys. De
tracting nothing 'fiom tho skill of
architect and workniou wo havo to
thank you, gentlemen, for tho linio
and attention you have devoted to
tho erection of this beautifully fin
ished building." (To tho Pastor.)
"Wo piosont unto jrou this building
to bo dedicated to tho worship ami
service of Almighty God."
Pastor and people thon rose and
recited a dedicatory service, tho
simultaneous reading of tho congre
gation being admirable, Tho con
cluding passage roudorod by all was
"Wo, tho members of tho Central
Union Church and Congregation of
Honolulu, do now dedicate this
houso in tho name and to the praise
of God the Father, tho Son ami tho
Holy Spirit, to whom bo glory in
tho church by Jesus Christ through
out all ages, world without end.

Rov. J. Waiamau pronounced tho
benediction in Hawaiian, whon, to
tho strains of a beautiful postludo,
tho largo congregation filed out of
tho ediiico so inipiessively dedicated
to divine worship.
THE EVENING SEIIVICC.
Tho church was filled in tho even
ing, but thoro was not tho crowd in
tho lobbies which stood out tho
morning service. Probably fear of
a crush deterred somo delicate peo
ple, and showers of rain others.
Among thoso prosont woro Rov. Alox
andor Mackintosh, pastor of tho
Second Congregation of St. Au
diow's Cathedral, and Mrs. Mackin
tosh. Tho electric lamps bathed tho
whole interior in light as of noon
day, in which the colored glass win
dows showed to beautiful advantage.
Thoro was a feeling of complete
comfort in the great air spaco of tho
church, and the news felt like a
happy medium making for comfort
without encouraging slumber. Fol

thoro aro many 111011 and women in

and honest words spoken to thoni by

Mr. F. J. Lowrey gave a history of
tho buildinir, It was understood
whon tho Bethel Union and Fort

of worship should bo oiootod. The
report of a cominitteo selecting tho
site was adopted January 9, 1889.

and Mr. Georgo Turner, of tho

ful to tho building committoo for
tho rapidity with which tho church
had beon built. Among tho contri

THE NEW CHURCH.
Thoro is not spaco enough loft to

For the present, however, our readors
