TUESDAY, SEPT. 26, 1893.
Tho "well kuown society lady at
Honolulu, who does a good deal of
religious and charitablo work among
tho natives," who is attached to the
reportorial stall of tho Star, is a
neighbor of tho editor's. It is noto
rious that when sho opens her mouth
pearls of romance fall from her lips.
When the religious sociotios of this
city were circulating petitions
against the bill licensing the sale of
opium, the same lady called Her
Majesty the Queen up by telephone
and told her not to pay anjr atten
tion to the petitions; that there
were other roads to heaven than the
ono through the Central Union
Church. A part of the lady's reli
gious work has been to toll her
native neighbors not to pray for the
Queen, as she was not worthy of
BALL TO THE BOSTON.
Gay Night Spent by a Largo Crowd
at tho Executive Building.
That noble pile now called the
Executive building, which as the
official residence of royalty was
known as Iolani Palace, gave forth
evidence last night to all eyes within
range of being the scene of festivity.
There was a profuse and pretty dis
play of colored lanterns on the ex
terior of both stories. Carriages
hurried loads of passengers at tho
front entrance by way of King street,
and when emptied rushed off through
the Richards street gate to fill other
similar engagements. The oont
was a reception and ball got up by
a number of residents, with the co
operation of the Provisional Govern
ment, to bid farewell to the officers
of the U. S. S. Boston leaving port
to-day, after a visit of more than a
year, for San Francisco.
Much had been done in decorat
ing the interior. This work was
under tho special superintendence
of Mrs. Geo. E. Boardman, which is
saying enough to convey to all resi
dents the knowledge that the de
tails were exquisitely wrought.
There was no opening there for
criticism, unless it was on the cround
of over-decoration. An interior like
that of tho palace may have perma
nent beauties concealed by added
adornment beyond a certain degree.
Still the architectural lines and pro
portions of graco and harmony wore
still visible on this occasion behind
the wealth of palms and forns,
wreaths of vines and festoons of red,
white and blue streamers. Flags of
the United States and Hawaii were
used for emblematic effect rather
than drapery, on the former throne
canopy and tho grand stairway.
Above tho canopy was emblazoned
"Boston" in bold gilt letters. Where
"political signilicance ' was intro
duced most conspicuously in tho
decorations the decorating com
mittee being doubtless responsible
was whero the only real esthetic
failure was produced. This was in
tho concealing of tho bright gold
leafed crowns on crossed spear and
sceptro with ugly bare shields
covered with cheap gilt and
silver tinsel. It was as much
a blunder in the moial effect
intended as in an esthetic senso.
Everybody knows that tho splendid
chamber was until lately tho throne
room of Hawaiian royalty tho em
blems of which, while far more
beautiful than tho improvised
screens that hid them, would also
have boon more symbolical, as sug
gostive of changed times, from the
standpoint of the democratic suc
cession than tho adopted tokens of
Thoro was a brilliant light, as
clear as noonday, from tho hundreds
of incandoscont electric lamps in the
magnificent chandeliers of tho ball
room. Tho entire building inside
was indeed brightly illuminated
with electricity, the result of very
energetic work by tho Hawaiian
Electric Companj'. A groat deal of
special wiring had to bo done at
As a reception implies that there
must bo somebody to receive, the
promoters of tho foto had elected
tho following ladies as its patron
esses: Mrs. S. B. Dolo, Mrs. H. W.
Sovoranco, Mrs. W. O. Smith, Mrs.
H. F. Glade, Mrs. S. G. Wildor, Mrs.
E. D. Tnnnoy and Mrs. J. S. Mc
Grow. Those ladies disposed them
selves iu a crescent-shaped row on
seats from tho palaco blue room
furniture, upon tho dais whereon
tho royal turonos stood and tho
monarch and suite wero wont to hold
statu reueptious. They stood up to
procession of cuosts
which began the grand outry shortly
after 8 o'clock. Arrayed in gorgpous
uniforms surmounted with scarlet
plumed holmets, ofikors of the
National Guard of Hawaii mot tho
guests at tho door and ushored thorn
to tho respective dressing rooms for
ladies and gentlemen sot apart iu
tho departmental offices and lobbies.
Tho ollicors thus rendering hospita
ble services wore Col. J, H. Sopor,
Majors G. C. Pottor and Geo. Me
Leotl, Captains Gartonburg, W. V.
Hall, Camara, Pratt and llodgors.
At eight o'clock tho band of tho
U. S. flagship Philadelphia opened
music for tho reception, and tho
first to pay thoir respects to tho
patronesses in tho Council chamber
(formerly throne room) woro Admi
ral Skorrott and staff, officers of tho
Boston (Captain Day, however, not
appearing), Captains Barker and
Nelson of tho U. S. S. Philadelphia
and Adams respectively, Chiof .Jus

Bickorton and Frear, acting Presi

aud Smith, Mr. H. W. Soveraueo,
United States Consul-Gonoral; Mr.
H. F. Glade, German Consul, and
Messrs. Goo Kim and Ah Lo, com
mercial representatives of China.
Then ensued tho general public in a
moro or loss constant stream for
dvor an hour. By tho close of tho
reception tho spacious apartniout
was well thronged, while many peo
ple woro seatod in tho great hall or
strolling through tho rooms on both
Dancing began with a full floor
for tho conventional lancers shortly
after 9 o'clock. Thoro was not the
usual opening "sot of" honor. Music
for the festive footfalls was furnished
by 24 members of tho Government
band undor tho leadership of Prof.
Borgor. It loft nothing to bo de
sired in oithor time or volume. So
the torpischorean revelry wont on
until past 10 o'clock, when tho
guests wero directed to tho largo
upstairs nail lor rot rosumonts. Thoro
Mr. Friemanu the caterer had long
tables ladou with well-cooked flesh
of boasts and flesh of fowls, tooth
some products of tho pastry cook's
art and tho plain staff of life, with
sandwiches and salads as reliefs at
intervals, also a varied assortment of
dessort of fruits, coufoctions and
olivos. Hot coffee and ice cream
were served at a special table. The
attack was strong and prolonged,
stopping baroly short of leaving
clean boards. Nobody, however, it
is safe to say, went away hungry
with blame to either caterer or com
mittee. Beverages off the ice were
supplied during tho evening through
windows on tho Ewa side first floor.
They consisted of wine punch and
lemonade, botli by their respective
drinkers boiug pronounced of good
After supper dancing was resumed
and, notwithstanding many early
departures, was maintained on a
goodly scale until 1:35 o'clock this
morning. For a largo number of
the sterner sex who did not mingle
iu tho giddy mazes, tho committee
of arrangements had made thought
ful provision of entortaiumout. Two
largo rooms upstairs woro sot apart
as lounging and smoking rooms,
sovoral tables iu which woro sup
plied with crisp now decks of cards.
Cribbage, euchre, hearts, etc., di
verted many changing groups
throughout tho evening, aud thore
was no lack of sociability anywhere
apparent, oithor among the lethar
gic smokers and players upstairs or
tho wall-flowers of either sox on the
first floor. A plentiful supply of
comfortable chairs was distributed
on both upper and lower verandas,
and tho accommodation was well
patronized by dancers cooling off,
sayors of sweet nothings and the
lazy fraternity iu general. For all
who attended this farewell to tho
gallant officers of the Boston thore
was enjoyment available which few
failed to realize.
Thoro wero probably five hundred
guosts assembled at tho height of
tho event. It was a far less repre
sentative assembly than many that
have boon gathered in tho same edi
fice. Neither was it so brilliant in
various respects than numbers of
functions that can bo recalled in re
cent years under tho monarchy.
Many of various nationalities aud
the most respectable classes in tho
community would havo been glad of
tho opportunity to havo takon
friendly leave of tho officers of the
Boston, but thoy woro dotorrod by
the ostentatious way in which they
woro informed b3' tho annexation

that the special guests of tho oven

honor sought to bo dono thorn con

OTHER SIDE OF THE STORY.
Captain Boabury of tho China Not
Dismissed but Exonoratod.
Our daily contemporaries wore in
hasto to quote a story from tho San
Francisco Chronicle, that Captain
Soabury of tho P. M. S. S. China
had boon dismissed from tho lino for
allowing that ship to touch tho roof
at Honolulu. This statemout is
contradicted by tho San Francisco
Call, whoso statemout of tho caso

Call's reference to tho matter is as

Saturday, Sept. S3, 1898,
Since this business was es
tablished and the people no
ticed that a little above the or
dinary amount of energy and
enterprise were among the at
tributes of the management,
it has been a pleasure to a few
persons to put upon the Ha
waiian Hardware Co., the title,
"the fresh young fir-m." In
order to please every one,
even those who look upon our
success with a jealously inclin
ed eye, and to remove ima
ginary appearances of fresh
ness we have completed ar
rangements whereby we con
trol the entire product of a cer
tain salt producing company in
this district, and offer to the
people of these Islands a pure
white salt of superior grade
at a shade less than they have
been accustomed to paying
under the Salt Monopoly. Our
arrangements are such that we
can furnish either one bag or
a thousand on short notice.
Hendry's Ready Mixed Paint
is making the buildings on
Merchant street look like new.
The building occupied by C.
O. Berger and Robert Grieve
is the latest to take the newest
and best remedy for prema
ture decay. Private residences
throughout the city are being
touched up to such an extent
that when the old residents re
turn from their World's Fair
jaunt they will think there has
been a building boom in Ho
nolulu during their absence.
Toilet sets are not often
broken and when they are
it is generally at an inconven
ient time. We have a large
stock of them suitable for
these times when people re
quire the maximum quality at
the minimum price. Our sets,
handsomely decorated, go to
you at prices ranging from
three dollars up. The hand
somest are in the makai win
dow. You'll smile when we
tell you the price.
The difference between good
and bad sporting ammunition
is demonstrated every season.
It is unnecessary for us to say
that the good article comes
from our store. For the sea
son which opens October i,
we have selected cartridges
of the sort used by the sports
men in the States and if you
use 'them you will not have to
buy your game from the na
tives. By the return Australia
we will have an assortment of
canvas hats for use in the
hunting field. In addition to
our stock of cartridges we have
a full supply of cleaning rods
and other necessary shooting
Our San Francisco Agents
sent us, the other day, a pre
paration for mending broken
crockery, wood and leather
that is destined to accomplish
great results in its line. We
have applied it to broken pro
mises of some of our debtors
and it worked like a charm.
We have plentyof it in stock
and if you want some of it for
that or mending broken arti
cles of virtu we will be pleased
to supply you.
The Keystone Beater will
do other things than beat
eggs. It whips cream better
than by any other means; it
will reduce fruit to a fine pulp
for almost any purpose more
effectually than by the old style
of mashing; it can be used in
making puddings and almost
anything else used as desserts,
and it's cheaper in the end and
better at all times than the do
zen other egg beaters that have
been on the market for the
last ten years.
