Although, tho work of construct
ing the addition to tho Young
Men's Christian Association build
ing has boen going on for eotno
months, no adtqunto idoa of tho
extent and variety of the improve
ments mudo cun bo obtnined by a
casual glanco at tho building, as
owing to tho height of tho main
floor from tho street very littlo
of tho intorior arrangements can
bo seen therefrom. The old build
ing is familiar to all tho residents
of Honolulu since its construction
in 1882, but no one ontering the
building today would rccognizo it
for tho same. With the excep
tion of tho nBSombly hall which
occupio tho wholo of tho upper
floor in the old building, every
thing has boon ohangod, and even
that has been muoh improved as
will bo seen later on.
Entering the main hallway ono
now finds tho secretary's ofllco on
tho right hand sido. This is a
handsome nnd well-lightod room,
16x22 Jeot, in ono cornor of whioh
i'b a door loading into a private
lavatory. On ono sido of tho
room nro windows fittod with
frosted glass. When raised thone
direotly overlook tho gymnasium,
tho floor of whioh is 9 foot bolow
the bottom of the windows. Seats
for visiting friends of the socro
tary will be plncod opposito these
windows and the exorcises in tho
gymnasium can bo viowod without
the trouhlo of going up to tho
gallery. Theso seats aro also in
tended to bo utilized when gym
nastio exhibitions are given, whioh
will bo frequently tho case. On
tho right hand of the hallway
loading to tho secretary's room is
nn nlcovo containing a dosk and
writing materials for tho use of
visitors and on the left anothor in
whioh an ice-water fountain will bo
plaaod. Tho secretary's quarters
will bo handsomely fittod up, and
will also oontain the boys' library.
A littlo further along tho hall
on tho samo sido a short stairway
loads down to tho floor of the
fymimBium, which is 7 foot bolow
ho main floor of tho old building.
This is a splendidly adapted room
for tho puri'Oso, boing of an irro-
f;ulnr shopo but averaging 35x00
oot in sizo nnd 24 foot from floor
to coiling. Across tho rear ond
is a gallory, 12x35 foot long, sus
pended 10 foot below tho ceiling
by iron rods. This room is light
ed by windows both in front and
rear, una in tho roar right hand
cornor by n largo skylight, to ob
tain which and light for the win
dows abovo a rocess in tho outor
wall was mndo. This largo room
will bo lighted nt night from
overhead and tho sides with
numorous olootrio lights. Tho
gymnastio appliances uro alroudy
in tho room, bnt will not bo put
in position until Secrotury Oor
From tho loft hand rear corner
of tho gymnasium on the' same
level a door loads' to tho lockers
and bath rooms, eituato in nn
annex to tho roar of tho old build
ing, 14x44 foot in size. Hero are
toilet and wash rooms and a
variety of baths in which the tired
f;ymnnst may refresh himsolf after
lis arduous oxoroise. It was ori

bath, but for good nnd sufficient
reasons the plan has been changed.
There are now two largo tub baths
and four shower baths, all fitted
with tho latest improvements
which can-bo seen nowhere else
in this city. Ono of tho shower
baths is called the "needle bath''.
It is fitted with numorous semi
circular tubes porforated so finoly
that tho wator issues in jots of tho
thickness of a neodlo and covers
the ontiro body at once. Tho
other shower baths ore also differ
ent, tho spray ooming all around
tho body from the shoulders down
instoad of directly on the head, as
is usually the caso.
In this room ore 84 numbored
lockers for the members to koop
their gymnastio suits, towels, oto.,
in. There is no dangor of losing
tho keys of thoso lookers for there
aro nono, but instoad each is
fittod with a doublo alphabetical
combination look, similar to thoso
on small safes. Tho owner may
chango his combination as often
as ho ploases. On this floor thero
is also a store room extending
under tho main building 20x40
foet in sizo and 7 foot high .which
will bo utilized for a variety of
Ascending by another direct
flight of stairs to tho main hall-
way again, directly opposito the
main outrnnoo will bo found tho
doorway to the principal ronding
room, in which is situated tho
library proper. This now oxtonds
noross the wholo width of tho old
building, occupying tho space
formerly used ns a kitahon, sohool
and storo rooms. It is now light
ed by sovon Inrgo windows nnd is
splendidly ndnpted fur the use
required of it. Handsome book
oases pro to be arranged along tho
opposite walls, in which tho liter
nry treasures of tho institution
will bo stored.
Tho room formerly nsod by tho
secretary with tho addition of the
rooess in front which has boen
boxod up is now turned into a
largo game room of irrogulnr
shnpo averaging 10x20 feet nrcn.
Here members nnd thoir friends
may indulge in checkers, chess
and other innocont games without
disturbing the ponce and quiet
ness of thoso whoso tastes load
them to prefor tho roading room.
LSotweou theso two rooms' is tho
parlor, 23x14 feot, which is the
only part of the old building
which has not beon touched under
tho now order of things except
the 'main stiirenso on tho left
loading to tho ' assembly - hall
Returning once more to the
gymnasium stairway and ascend
ing instoad of descending, tho
visitor roaches a squiro platform
gtllery in tho gymnasium, whioh
will bo fitted with seats for spec
tators. A fow stops higher and
another platform is rone lied from
which a door on the left leads to
tho assembly hall in tho opposito
corner to tho main stairway. This
is a muoh nooded and important
improvement, as it make a doublo
outlet in case of firo, ono from
each ond of tho room. But little
dangor can bo dreaded from this
pourco, howovor, as in case of a
pauio it is only a short drop from
the rear windows to tho roof of
tho bathrooms nnd from thonco to
tho ground. Besidos being an
additional protection in case of
firo this doorway was constructed
for tho uso of musicians, artists
and othors who may uso tho stage.
Ascending a few stops more tho
visitor roaches tho main hallway
of tho upper floor of tho gymnn
sium annox. It is callod tho class
room floor. Horo aro threo largo
rooms which will bo utilizod by
tho classes in bookkeeping, typo
writing, shorthand, etc. They
nro 16x22, 17x28 and 17x33 feot
respeotivoly, tho two latter boing
arranged by folding doors to bo
thrown into ono if required. la
tho rear of thoso is stil) another
room, 13x24 foot, to be used an an
extra olass room in tho day titno or
as a largo kitchen nt night when
refreshments aro sorred at onter
tainmnts, Two larg closota
well stooknu with ouinawaro o
all descriptions upon into thje
room, also a smuU kitchen, in
which is n stovo for heating tea or
oofTeo and tho necessary utons'ls,
together with a stationary wash
stand for washing dishes and so
forth, all of which are passed ic
or out through a sliding window
over tho sink. There is stijl an
other convenient closet on this
flqor to whioh no particular use
has yet beon assigned.
Entoring the ussembly room
again ono notices that additional
windows hnvo boen put in and
otlior changes mado which result
in tho room boing much ooolor
than heretofore. This room is
about 48x54 feet in sizo and 17
feet high. It "will seat , com
fortably 330 people, ns arranged
at tho recent Marquardt concerts.
The original building, ottered
in 1882, cost about $18,000. Tho
addition just completed will cost
botween $15,000 and $16,00(), not
including the gymnastic apparatus
purchased by Secretary Oorboti.
in Ithodo Island, which invoices
$1047 at factory prices. The
various paraphernalia included
in the above is already in the
gymnasium, but the boxes will not
bo oponed until Mr. Corbott'B
arrival on the 24th.

In conclusion it is gratifying
to add that tho institution in in u
flourishing condition financially,
and that tho improvements des
cribed above will surely result in
a inrge increase oi membership
goes without saying. The total
membership at presont writing is
about 300, all of whom may woll
uo prouu oi an institution which
stands as a monument of their
oxortions in tho cause of Chris
tianity and is o lasting credit tc
tho oily of Honolulu.
