know, tho book boing given, that
tho chapter was that about "a

from its incomparable rhythm.
Mr. Lin then delivered a brief
discourso on a passage from
Mr. Damon, superintendent of
tho Chinese mission, then road an
eloquont address. He voiced the
welcomo of Chinese friends to all
whd had gatherod on tho occasion.
While the hospital was not in n
technical sonse a missionary insti
tution, it was an oppression, in
tangible form, of tho great onward
movement in tlin lifn nf Mm
race, which rocoivod its supreme
impulse from the divine Founder
of Christianity.as formulated in the
lll-l.l T 1 ,1 TT- I . -
Muoiuoij iuie. noquoieu uoniu
cius' definition of benevolence, "It
is to lovo all men." Tho hospital
was largely an outcome of the
Christian civilizatiou,as roprpnent
od in tho different charitable in
stitutions of the city, u hich fur
tii-.li valuable object teaching
for thu diffori'tit ra';os that
have come to us from oriental
lauds. He could not bur fool, al
so, that the nmgniiiceut nruieve
mentsof the medical missionary
work in Chiua, during the past GO
or 70 years, had aided aleo in tho
initiation of this nntUrUkiug.
One of tho Chines phybiuiauH who
utid been engaged for tho hospital
held a satisfactory dip oma from
the medical training school oou
noctpd with the groat Missionary
Hospital of Cauton. of which Dr.
Kee, that Nestor of medical mis
sionaries in China, is the head,
one of tho noblest names inscrib
ed upon tho medical ro
cords of the world. This young
Chinoso gentleman with his wife",
also a graduate of the same
school, recently passed a satisfac
tory examination before tho com
mittee of physicians of our Board
of Health. Tho speaker paid a
high tribute to tho rule ot tho
medical missionary in China. Its
pioneer was Rev. Peter Parkor,
M. D., who arrived at Canton in
1831, and of whom it had boon
said, "He opened Chiua to tho
gospel at tno point ot the Junwt."
Tho hospital at Canton 'had
treated hundreds of thou
sands of patients, and
scores of other hospitals
had nrisou from its foundation.

president aud vice president of
tno United Ulnueso Soou-ty, and
Messrs. Chu Jem and Wong Wa
Foy, president and vice presideut
of the Hospital Association,
together with tho othor offic
ers of these organizations,
tor their wuolo-hearteu devotion
that had been crowned with tho
successful inauguration of this
benevolent enterprise. "It is on
such occasions ns this," he closed
by saying, "when a common in
terest in the highest welfare of
humanity unites us in sympathe
tic accord that wo realize to some
extent tho glorious conception of
a uuirorsal brotherhood. May
the inspiring lesson of this after
noon's experionco abide with us
as a stimulus to labor for tho
more porfect realization of this
ideal, for the more completo at
tainment of this most desirable
Mr. Wong Wa Foy, chairman of
tho building committee, now per
formed tho ceremony of present
ing tho keys of the hospital to Mr.
Goo Kim, delivering tho following
neat address in 'English and Chin
ese: "Four months ago I was ap
pointed to suporiutoud tho
building of this hospital. I went
to work at once, and now havo tho
ploasuro of seeing a successful
oloso, with ovorytliiag paid for.
Tho sum of $1000, which tho
building cost, I consider very
cheap. I havo now tho pleasure
of handing ovW to you, Mr. Presi
dent of tho United Chinoso Socio
ty, tho keys of tho hospital, fool
ing that my work is finished, and
hoping that all things in connou-'
tion with it may be entirely satis
factory to all thoso interested in
thowolfaiodf tho institution. I
now request, Mr. Prosidont and
oflicorsof tho society, that you
will roliovo mo of all furthor res
ponsibilities." Mr. Goo Kim responded in
happy terras, beginning with thoso
few words in English: "All theso
buildings are paid for. I thank
you all. Ladies and gontlomon, I
thank you for coming here. I don't
talk much English, so I will talk a
little in Chinese." Ho then pro
ceeded with nu address in Chi
nese, a translation of which was
read by Mr. Tshiu. Tho Wai
Wa Yeo Yuon signified "a
hospital dovotod expressly for
tho bouefit of tho Chinoso."
Tho Chinoso had beon with them
in those fair islands for v many
years, and at this dato formed a
largo part of their population.
The Chineso mercantile class and
thoso who had been engoged
iu developing tho resourcos
of tho country had invariably
been found honorable, honest and
lawabidiug residents. They had
dono their best to respect, main
tain and support tho Govorumont
by contributing largely to the
statu rovnuiU'H, b necepting with
sincerity tho ItHiieiits offered them
in tho education of tlieir childn u;
by learning to a great dogree mr
language, laws, civilization, cus
toms and m.iniior of thought nnd
it'titiii; b orovidiuu for their own
poc)ratid tick, mill by never being
eoliirfh iu such charitable matters as
might havo been properly brought
to their notice. They had en
deavored to be good citizens with
good people in a good country.
For upward ot 20 years the care
and treatment of thoir sick and
maimed ha-l received tlieir seri
ous attention. They were grjjto
ful to the uiauy of other
races and to tho Govern
ment foi kindly, nssistanco
iu tho past. They dosired now to
express to tho Hnwaiian Govern
ment their gratitude and great iu
debtednesn for tho magnanimous
and munificent gift of tho land
upon which that building now
stood in its finished perfection.
Without this substantial aid thoy
might have been compelled to
wait some years longer for their
hospital. They would treasuro iu
thoir hearts aud families the
kindly and considerate action of
tho Hawaiian Government, and
remember it not in idle words
nlone but iu friutful.deeds. Be
sides haviug the buildiug ready
for tho first tmffcter that conies
and all paid for, there was a
balance on baud to tho credit
of tho maintenance fund.
To make tho hospital as efficient
ao it should bo, thoy would lequiro
some assistance for tho future
from peoplo of other nationalities.
In conclusion, tho chairman de
clared tlo hospital opon.
Mr. Jlco Crtiok Sin, editor of
tho llaSvaiiau Chinoso News, read
a poem in Iiib own language, after
which Mr. Wong Kwai delivered
a short address without intorpro

president of tho Hospital Asso
ciatiou, saying in English: "I
hope you will do good woik. Do

Mr. Chu Kem nccopted tho koys
inashoit address, thanking thu
heads and members of tho organ

in the noblo work, and tho repre

for thoir prosepen and sympathy.

is ati interesting story. In the
old Volunteer Firo Department
each company had a fund of its
own, chiefly for sick and funeral
bonefits. China Engine Co. 5
owned its own steam fire engine,
it having been bought by the
Chiueso merchants. When tho
Provisional Governmout had
changed tho firo department to a
j-nid one, the volunteer companies
adopted various methods of dis
tributing thoir funds. Tho Chin
eso fira laddies had about SI 500 in
thoir treasury, and thoy voted
to hand it over to tho United
Chiueso Society, with suggestion
that it form tho nucleus of a hos
pital fund. Tho engine was 6old

which was lately brought up to
