Sunday, April 19, 185)0, will al
ways stand out prominont in tho
snnal8 of tho First Methodist
Episcopal Oliurch of Honolulu.
On that duy tho first building
vor oroctod hero by that society
I was dedicated to its purposes of
-divine worship and religious in
struction. It is somo montliB
eiuco tho commodious and snug
"little church around tho comer," ,
.ueroiania near ivinior street,
neon compiotetl and in uso
but circumstances caused its de
dication to bo deferred.
For tho purposes of tho dedicn
tion ceremonies the front part of
tho intorior was adorned like a
bride for marriago. Tho altar rail
waB fairly buried in flowers.
Three large palm fronds woro
placed against tho rear of tho al
cove containing tho minister's
platform, tho middle ono being
chastely decorated with bunches
of lilies, and tho -wall back of tho
organ, adjacent to tho platform,
was also screened with palms.
Potted plants studded tho plat
Tho oxorcises ojioned with tho
flinging of Hymn 5, aftor which
Eov. H. W. Peck, pastor, offered
n solemn invocation. Eov. Soreno

Church then read tho scripture

x., 19-20. Hymn 178 having next
been sung, ltov. E. R. Dillo, D.D.,
of San Prancisco delivored tho
sermon of tho day.
Dr. Dillo took his text in 1 Cor.
xiii., 9. 10: "Por wo know in
part, and wo prophesy in part.
J3ut when that which is porfect is
come, then thnt which is in part
shall bo dono away." Prom theao
words ho preached an exceptional
ly powerful diBcourso, scho
larly yet plain, bold in
comparisons, pungont in deduc
tions, and, withal, delivored with
raro imprcssivonoss. Tho subject
announced beforehand was "(Jor
taiutios in Religion." In his ser
mon tho prooohor described "five
mountain peaks" that towored
above tho 6Uifaco of scriptural
truth. These ho elaborated with
great forcoand perspicuity except
ing tho third, which ho merely
named for want of time. They
woro: 1, a personal God; 2, a
living Christ; 3, duty; 4, salvation;
5, immortality. No more, epitome
of such a discourse would bo sat
isfactory, and Bpneo will not admit
of oven a baro abstract. Dr. Dillo
uttered fully half of his sermon
in nu easy conversational tone, ami
for tho roinnindor indulged
just onough in declamation to
show reserved powors of elocution
of no common order. His rhe
toric throughout wnB faultless and
liirt diction ilowod liko a river,
boaring his auditors smoothly
but irresistibly to his woll-dcliiied
Jiobidos tho regular worshipers
of that church thoro were several
prominent l oprosontntivuH of othor
communions in tho congregation,
whioh lilh'd nearly ovory soat in

boon found to contain 300 acros
of grazing land loss thau was rep
resented at tho sale by auction of

tor had been boforo tho Execu
tive sovoral times and tho govern
ment had refused to interfere, as

acquire tho whole of tho water

ing n public park.

provisions of the bill and showed

ly amounted to a wholesale con

wholo revenue of tho island of

poses would be needed to pur

against tho private sale of tho
lands and amount to taking them
out of tho market.
