The Annual Meeting.
Thoro was tbo usual small at
tendance at tbo annual meeting of
tho Hawaiian Historical Socisty,
hold at Y. M: 0. A. hall last night.
With less than half a dozen others,
wore present: Dr. N. 13 Emor
son, prosidont; Hev. 0. M. Hyde,
D. D , recording secretary; Prof.
W. D. Alexander, corresponding
secretary; Miss M. A. Burbauk,

Dr. Hydo, while readiug his re
port, remarked that tho - trustees
of tho Bishop Museum hd pnr
cbased a very fine phonograph for
recording the correct pronuncia
tion of tho Hawaiian language.
Prof. Alexander's report as cor
responding mombor bad matter of
much interest. Since tho roturn
homo to Now Zealand of S. Peroy
Smith, wbo lectured before this
society last December, ho has bo
gun tho publication of the othnb
Fogical material that ho collected
in his tour through tho Paciiio
ocean. In this history, it is tho
author's opinion, will be found a
comploto varification of Fornau
dor's Hawiuian traditions. Mr.
Smith finds mention of Pole
and of sovoral of tho
Hawaiian Islands in Barotoognn
MSS. Mr. Young of Tabiti is
Bonding tho Polynesian Society a
Tahitian account of Polo's visit to
Hawaii. Prof. Alexander attri
butes tho dearth of coutubutionB
to tho local society the past year
to proocoupation withtho extra
ordinary events passing before
our oyes. Tho trustees of the
Bishop Museum have decided to
nublish. from timo to time, a
series of papors rotating to Poly
nesian othnology and natural his
tory. An illustrated paper on
feather work and a directory of
all the islands of tho Pacific, also
Dr. Emerson s translation of Ha
waiian Antiquities by David
Malo, are to bo among tho muso
urn's lit 'rary outputs. Arrango
ments havo been made in London
for the publication of Miss
Tmiira's History of Tahiti. An
othor publication i to bo that of
Di Honry Lyman's reminisceuces
of life in Uivvaii nei in the fortios
and fit ios. To bo dosiro I for

"Tho Making of tho Hawaiian
Flag," Prof. 'Alexander's papor,
was' tho first road.' Kamobameha
used tho British' flag until the
breaking out of the'warYiMSIG.
Then, on fhe.ndvico of an Amori
can friend, ho givo it up. 'Ho
ndopted a flag having tho'Union
Jaok in the corner to show -his
friendship for tho British, and

who arrived early in this contury,
was doubtlessly tho originator' of
the Hawaiian 'flag. Ho made tho
first ono in 1806 or 1807, bat tho
loss of hiB logbook prevents exact

grandfather of "our" Goorgo O.
Beckley, "commodore" of tho

written statements regarding tho
last hours of Kamoharaoha T., by
the lato Stophon H. Phillips, at
torney general, and the lato Gov
ernor John 0. Dominis, who woro
in the death chamber along with
Mfs. 0. It. BUhop, Mrs. Dom

makau and Governor Nahaclolua.
The late Drs. Hutchinson, and
Trousseau woro tho attending
physicians.. It is related by the
chroniclers, in Uiobo statements
written 'in January, 1873, that tho
king could not bo induced to
uaino his successor. This is why
an elootion had to bo mado by tho
Legislature when Lunalilo was
obosen. Different, personages
wore suggested, but ho would have
none of them. Queen Emma ho
said was not suited for tho posi
tion, and her title was bnt ono of
courtesy from having beou the
consort of Kamobameha IV. He,
however, did nsk Mrs. Bishop to
be his Buccessor. That princess
quickly declined tho proffered
Dr. Emerson road a learnod and
clovorly written paper on "Hawai
ian Marnogo." Ho showed bow a
wrong interpretation had been put
unon the word describing tho mar
riage rito of tho auciout Hawaiiaus.
What was tho stated coromony was
thus made toappeor gross lawless
ness. Even a lexicographor of noto
had fallen into the error. By relat
ing a tradition of an abuso of tho
rite, with the indignation and hor
ror it occasioned, tho essayist prov
ed the legitimato application of tho
torm in question. Ho deprecated
tho spirit that would mako tho ac
cepted form? of marriage in ono
country to bo denounced by tho
people of another. Groat enro was
taken by the Hawaiian parout for
inducing their eons as well as
daughter to mako propor choices
in marriage. Tho Arcadian free
dom of roatrnint was less in an
cient than in modern Hawaii. In
conclusion the nuthor oloquontly
stated his desire to removo the un
deserved obloquy nnd contumely
put upon tbo Hawaiian race
through verbal misinterpretation.
Mr. Sowall, remarking upon tho
very pleasant evening given the
audience, moved a vote of thauks
to Prof Alexander nnd Dr. Emor-
ition, which was nenrtuy oarneu.

"The trip around Hawaii is n

used to bo. This is on account of
tho new roads.
"No, we havo all tho wharf wo
want at Hilo, and cannot say as to
what wo nro going to do. Tho

found they hnd ripped up a plank,
and pooplo woro packed on both

At first sight I thought the crowd
was waiting for a steamor.
"Wo drove to Pohoiki nnd then
back and through Olna to tho

Kabuku. Tbon we wont horso-
back to Kunimoku in South Kona,

Mr. Bruner mot ub nt Hookena

is obsorvablo in Kona. Not so
much in larger enterprises, per-
