Anyone going upNuuauu avon
ue Saturday afternoon would have
got a glimpse of gay goings ou at
Kuakiui Btroot. To the mountain
sido of that now street, a little way
from Nuuanu, tho white canvas of
a pavilion and several touts shim
mered in tho sun, whilo at many
points ovor the encampment the
gaudy colors of various ilags Hut
leied iu tho steady valloy breeze.
People wore swarming thore from
tho cars, alighting at tho gates
from carriages and flying into the
grounds upon bicycles. Strains
of music roso iu tho air.
All thoso gala day evidences
woro transpiring at tho lately
completed courts of tho Valloy
Tenuis Club, which were being
opened with a reception to which
members of other tenuis clubs
and mauy other people had beou
invited. There aro three courts in
the compound, two itlmtliug end
wise 011 Kuakiui stroet aud one
running crosswieo behind these.
In a space betwoeu tho two and
tho one a largo circular canopy
was raised, open below all around
so as to afford a view iu overy di
rectiou. Beneath this shade set
tees aud chairs were couvonioutly
arranged, aud iu u crescout row
in tho middle was seated the com
mitteo of reception, consisting of
Mrs. S. M. Damon, Mrs. A. E.
Nichols, Mrs. S. M. Ballou.Missos
May Damon, Sadie Carter, Rita
Schmidt, Florence Carter and
Mabel Sorenson. Rufrcshmeut
tables were arranged ou either bide
of tho outrnncA to the re
ception pavilion, from which
waitors under dirootioti of Mrs. J.
O. Carter, Mrs. Young and Miss
Campbell served tho guests. Fiue
salads and saudwichos, buttered
buus and a variety of cuke, ice
cream and sherbet, together with
cottVo, mado up a repast equal to
a high class ballroom supper.
Besides, thoro was a lemouude
stand under refreshing tribute all
I hroughuut the aftomoon all
three courts wero occupied) by
successive sots of players, who
appreciated the excellence of the
grounds to tho full.
From the polo of tho maiu
pavilion there floated the club's
pouuant, red color with gold mo
nogram worked in This was
mado by Mrs. Nichols assisted by
other ludy members of tho
club. American, British and
Hawaiian flags were flying
from tlio framework of the back
nets of the courts. Tho sito of
the courts is ouo of the prettiest
places in Honolulu for view of
scenery, commanding ns it does
the mountain ranges forming tho
Valloy, Puuubbowl und tho inouu

gruens fields dotted with cottages
and trees looking toward Palama.
As for tho courts thutiirtelvoa tlK'y

Amidst the puuninence L'ivon to
I our great Colonies and Dependen
1 cies in the leading public journals,
, says the British Trade Review,
there is sometimes a iiossilnhty of
some of tho smallor places which
acknowledge British rule being
overlooked. In the course of tho
past'inouth tho island ot Trinidad,
in the British West Indies -not
the wretched little islet of that
name off tho coast of Brazil, as A
writer in the Standard is caroful
to explain, whore tho chief pro
duct is a species of hideous land
crab has been colebratiug tho
centenary of tho British occupa
tion of tho island. Our contemp
orary, after giving uu intorostiug
historical review of tho dependen
cy, aud a dosctiption of the man
ners aud customs of its inhabit
ants, culls attention to tho pro
gress that tho people of Trinidad
havo mado in utilising tho resour
ces of thoir soil, aud does tho isl
and a good turn by observing that
what aro most needed to further
dovolop tho riches of tho laud aro
capital and skill.
Fortunatoly for Trinidad, con
tinues the Standard writer, tho
cessation of sugar cultivation will
cause, less disturbance there than
olsewhoro. Tho area uudor sugar
cauo iu 1805 was 58,500 acres, as
against 1)7,000 acres under cocoa.
Coffee at one timo was largely
grown; but according to tho latest
figures only 1000 acres aro now
devoted to that product. Over
40,000 acres aro occupied by other
cultivation aud padturago. From
tlifiiu tho chief export io cocoa
nuts. The vuluo of tho cocou ex
ported in 1895 waB XG20.634, ob
against 500,415 for sugar. In
1801 tho export waB il30,78G.
Without going further iuto
figures, which aro of doubtful
value aB iudicatious of tho per
manouco and prospority of agri
cultural industry iu tho Tropics, it
will bo secu thut Trinidad
has made some advanco in utilis
ing tho varied capabilities of hor
soil aud climate. Then theto is
tho Pitch Lake a valuablo source
of revenue. Tho island does not
livo by sugar alone; and thoro is
scarcely any tropical product that
might uot bo growu. Here, as
elsowhoro in that region, what aro
most needed uio capital and the
skill with which to employ it in
new directions. Even during tho
years of low prices for augur,
Trinidad has been able to hold
her own. Her plantors havo
moved with tho times, so far as
their capital would allow them;
ami the spirit-iu which tho cocoa
industry has been pursued has
enabled tho island to maintain its
position while many of its neigh
bors havo gone back.
Threatened, therefore, though
Trinidad may bo, by the possible
failure of tho sugar industry, bIio
is not likely to bo ruined, adds
our contemporary, Bhould ovory
cauefield, iu tho courso of time,
have to bo ahaudonod. Associat
ed with her for governmental pur
pones is the little island of Toba
go, with its population of negro
poasantry, numbering about
twenty thousand a protty, but
sleopy place, almost abuudoucd
by whites, which might, however,
be oullnated on ovory sido, aud
would cortaiuly mako an oxcollont
sanatorium, for the heat there is
tempered by strong aud nover
failing broezos. Tho centenary
of tho British occupation of Trini
dad is in itsolf an intoiPt-tiiig
ovont, and will havo been uaofully
olwervod should it help to make
tho colony mora widely known ut
Europe, nnd tho residents and
traders of tho island aro indebted
to tho Standard for its able aud
informing articlo, which should be
of no Blight sorvico in calling at
tention to Trinidad as n liold for
U-.' ft. . Jfc.
