Tlioro was a rathor thin atten
dance at tho annual public meet
ing of tho Young Men's Christian
Association last night, the assem
bly hall being not moro than a
third full when tho proceedings
opened a little lato. Tho propor
tion of young people in attendance
was goodly. A selection by tho
Punahou orchestra was the first
item in tho program, and it gavo
much delight. Jos. B. Athorton
offered tho opening prayer.
W. It. Castlo read tho report of
the educational committee in tho
absenco of Henry M. Wells, chair
man. Tho reader introduced tho
report by saying that tho Associa
tion was extremely fortunate in
having tho services of Mr. Wells
and those who had been
teachers und instructors. While
salaries had been small, the work
had been excellent, of tho first
quality. Thoro had beon two
tortus of thirteen weeks oaoh of
tho ovoning classes. Tho work
showed a distinct advance ovor
tho previous yoar. In tho book
koeping class, conducted by
Mr. first torm 33 began
and 20 completed tho course, and
second torm 18 finished out of 2G
enrolled. Five students had per
severed in shorthand under Mr.
Bluxomo's tuition last term,
against 10 out of 13 tho
previous one. Tho vocal
music class taught by Prof. Cook
closed itkJMarch. At the opening
of tho fall term 30 pupils woro
enrolled in the Hawaiian class,
and Mr. Poopoo was compelled to
divide it, but lately it dwindled
away to four. Somo want tho class
started again. Tho elomentary
olaBS, for tho ordinary common
school branches, had 18 pupils in
fall term, of whom 12 went
through, and 13 in winter term,
of whom oight porsevorod to the
ond. It was recommended in tho
report that tho school should givo
diplomas to its pupils who earned
them. Mr. Castle, after reading
tho report, announced that P. C.
Jones would give a talk, soon, on
"Business Methods," and, later,
Prof. W. T. Brigham one on
B. F. Beardmore read tho re
port on physical culture. For tho
greater part of tho yoar tho gym
nasium had beon without au in
structor. Sinco the arrival of Mr.
Coleman they had entered on
what was hoped to bo a success
ful term. After giving tho
schedule of practise hours for
different classes, tho report spoko
of improvements that had beon
mado in the gymnasium. Classes
aro conducted with as much varie
ty ns possiblo. How much hotter
than drainiug medicine bottles,
tho roport inquired, was physical
exercise for toning up tho human
system? In conclusion, tho mora
hers woro asked to holp tho in
structor in his arduous labors.
O. D. Holm gavo a humorous
rooitation, tho bunion of which
was a trial of boo stings as a euro
for rheumatism, and tho audieuco
would not stop applauding until
tho olocutiouist rose in his seat
and bowed his ackuowlodgmont.

secretary, read his roport. Ho
acknowledged the welcome ho had
recoived on arrival as "about as
food as could bo mado any whore."
t was a kind providenco that per
mitted him to como to tho town
in timo to meet God's chosen
worker, John It. Mott. Tho bene
fits of Mr. Mott'a labors hero
might not bo apparont for some
timo. Ho had established thrco
branch associations, in Oahu Col
lege, Kamohameha School and tho
Pacifio Missionary Institute.
Thoir opportunity to keep in
touch with theso organizations
should not bo neglected. Tho
valuo of tho reading room to tho
young mon of tho city was men
tioned, and tho need of many
books commonded to tho benovo-
loutly disposod membors. Lottors
of introduction to other associa
tions, for young mon going away,
was a groat benefit. Another
valuablo function of tho associa
tion was in gettiug propor lodg
ing and boarding houses for
young men. Ho quoted the
opinion of another that tho idoal
association was one whore ovory
activo member had some specific
duty on a working committee.
Tho executivo of this association
had mado a caroful selection of
committeos for the current
yoar. As tho membership list
was still under revision tho
strength of tho association in
numbers could not bo-stated. The
physical dbpartmeut had under
gone several degrees of reaction
during tho past year, but it was
being reargnnized with good pro
miso of improvement. Tho great
neod of tho gymnasium was more
consocrated young mon to go into
it and show a good oxamplo. It
was felt thoro was a neod of re
viving tho spiritual lifo of tho as
sociation. One hundred copios of
Moody's Colporteur's Biblo had
been ordered, also a supply of ad
dresses by Mr. Mott.
Dr. B. F. Burgess gavo a tonor
solo in good voice, accompanied
on tho piauo by Miss Love.
A. B. Wood, president, ro-eloctod,
gavo a rosumo of tho work
of tho year. If thoy had
made any progross it had boon
through tho power of God. Tho
institution was open evory day
und every ovoning. Tlioro was no

It had now an olfioiont instiuotor.
Games could be played on tho
gymnasium floor. Many young
mon woro in good positions for
which they had beon trained in
tho association's classes. Ho ro
forred to tho report of tho dovo
tional couimitteo as showing the
roligiouH work of tho yoar. Thoy
hudonjoyod many social occasions,
and ho thanked the women of

In a recout 'issue of tho Stanley
Gibbons Monthly Journal ofPhi
lately there is au account of somo
of tho raro stamps in tho collection
of Mr. F. W. Ayer, well-known as
the largest private collector and
purchasor of postage stamps in
tho United States. This gentle
man is credited with having tho
third largest collection of postago
Btumps in tho world, but accord
ing to thn articlo in tho journal
abovo mentioned ho has disposed
of tho rarer stamps in it to tho
London firm of Stanley, Gibbons
fe Co., probably tho only firm in
oxistonco ablo to handle it. Tho
price paid was nearly 50,000 or a
quarter of a million dollars. This
may seem nn enormous amount to
pay for a few old stamps, but
when tho value of somo singlo
specimens is takon into account it
will bo found that the firm which
bought the collection know what
they woro about. It was only a
few days ago that tho Bulletin
uoticed in its columns tho sale of
a singlo specimen of tho 1851 is
sue of Hawaii for $3500, probably
as largo a a am as was ovor paid
for a single stamp, and this speci

Fourteen members ot tho Com

Victoria Jubilee celebration met
last night and formulated a pro
gram, which has been placed in
the hnuds of thoir secretary for
engrossment and presentation at
tho general meeting to be hold
next Monday evening. Tho ro
port will not bo made public until
then, but it is learned that the
sum of nbout $3000 is what tho
couimitteo would liko to spend in
carrying out "the program agreed
on last night.
This includes boat racing of nil
kinds in tho morning froin.8tol0,

From 10 a. m. to 1 p. m. tlioro
will bo children's sports at Kapio

to take all the small children iu
tho city to the park and back in
free busses aud street cars, give
them three' hours of all kinds of
infantilo games for prizes and
fill thorn up to their hearts' con
tent with nil thoy can oat and
drink. It seems to bo tho wish
of tho sports committoo to innko
the day ono that tho children will
romember as long as they live
aud tho committeo will spend
S750 in tho attempt if finances
will allow it.
Tho main sports will commence
at 1 o'clock. Thero will be about
fifteen athletic events of tho usual
ordor, such as running, jumping,
throwing tho hammer, otc, for
valunblo prizes designed to bring
out tho host athlotio talent in tho
city. Sovoral hundred dollars is
wanted for this purpose
Thoro will bo sevon separate bi
cycle events for prizes of $20 or
more, nnd tho least tho committeo
can get along with on this account
Tho committeo also think they
can ubo about $300 to good ad
vantage in about two horso racos.
