sembled In tha sulon for the last din

awaited thent. Souvenir menus und
mapper bon bons were at each plate,
the gay colors giving a gala appear

snapping of the bon bons, Jollity and
luu reigned supreme and as each diner
donued his tissue paper cap und read

a most festive appearance. A menu
more elaborate than usuul was served
und there were drunk the healths o."
the gallant Captain Uowdell, tor the
tblp's officers and of members of the
party. The gathering was turned Into
a mutual udmirajlon kojety and all
felt better for the frolic.
Long before the sun rose tbo All

spicy blossoms. Welcome beamed
from the eyes of the smiling commit
teemen, welcome waved In the flags
that fluttered In the breeze, welcome
sparkled In the laughing waters of the
bay us the Alameda's prow cut through

goodbye to the dear old ship aud her
gallant crew and stepped off the gang

waiting to receive us, we felt that our
Aloha was complete.
Luncheon at the Moana.
The first social affair to which 'we
were bidden upon our arrival wag the
luncheon at the Moana hotel at Wal
klkl and long will the memory of this
delightful welcome remain with us.
Previous to the luncheon the guests
were received In the dramtng-room by
Mesdames J. A. McCandless, II. P.
Wood, C. 0. Uockus, W. n. Furring
ton. If. C. Capewell, F. U lloogs, W.
M. Langton, A. P. Taj lor, U A. Thurs
ton, F. L. Wuldron, and Miss Maria
With the thoughtfulness which Is
characteristic of the Islands and their
people we wero presented with the
woven Aloha fans tied with Kronen
bows of canary colored satin ribbon
In honor of the visitors from the Gold
en State, the gifts of the 'Star," ami
distributed by Mrs. F. L. lloogs.
Glowing with light and color the
great dining room of the Moana, Jut
ting out into the crystal sea, presented
a scene never to- be forgotten. Long
tables, gleaming with snowy napery
and sparking with silver and crystal,
extended the length of the dining ball
and invited the hungry voagrs to par-
tak of their abundance.
Hundreds of tropical ferns, fresh
from some woodland tangle, were scat
tered over the doth, while long, trail
ing tendrils of glossy leaved made
Vicre outlined on the white linen. At
Intervals through tho tables were
clusters of gay blossoms, while nt each
plate luy u lei of whlto or crimson or
I ink, tho grouping1 of this wealth of
glowing color adding much to the el
lectlvencssof tho scene.
Abide from tho mere satisfaction one
always feels In an excellent meal, tha
menu on this occasion had especial In
terest for the guests of honor, as It
Included several native dishes new to
the visitors. After a thick soup fit for
the gods thftnselves.-fcanie the flsh
course mullet baked In tl leaves.
While the novelty of this still lingered
luscious minced pineapple, served In
Its own shell with whipped cream and
Marachino cherries, delighted both the
eye and the palate. With the meat
course the novelty was the fried taro,
which was new to moit of those who
tasted, and then came a delicious salad
of alligator pear. Preceding the crack
ers and cheese and coffee came the
fruit course of native papala, resemb
ling an orange-colored melon In ap
pearance, in taste nothing short ot
the ambrosia of the gods.
Mr. W. It. Farrlngton, of the Bullc
tin, voiced tho feelings ot the hosts In
words of cordial welcome, responses
being made by President I). G. Holt
and Secretary Edgur Johnson ot tha
Association, und by the Itev. John 1).
II. Browne, who accompanied thu par
ty from Ioh Angeles.
1VHMEDIATELY following luncheon
I the guests wero escorted to the
beautiful home of ox-Governor A.
S. Clegborn, father of the late Princess
Kalulanl, where the host received the
guests most cordially. Characteristic
of the bospltullty ot the place, he had
not wnlted for the guests to seek him
but came out to meet them, and be
neath tbe shade of a mammoth ban
yan tree, his first words of welcome
His home Is llllcd with rare old carv
ings and Inlaid woods, priceless porce
lains und old calabashes dark with age;
exquisite tapestries und relics of the
early days various articles of vertu
which formed the center of Interest
for the guests.
The" house Is net In the midst ot
wide and spacious grounds and Is sur
rounded with n wild, luxuriant growth
of tropical trees aud shrubs Intoxi
cating In the prodigality ot their
bloom. Wild woodland paths wind bo
neath the leafy shade of mango, bread
fruit und banyan trees, by the side ot
pools tilled with tho exquisite water
hyacinths and lotus flowers, past
clumps of (ocoauut trees lifting their
fronded tufts against the blue, sky,
under (lie shelter ot palm and bananu
tree to u typical grass house, of the
olden days. The wild, tropical beaut)
of these grounds and the courtesy ot
the owner, who allowed the Callfor
l.lans the pleasure of visiting them
will be umong the most pleasant of the
Motoring and Tea.
f- ollowlng the reception at Gov
l-i Cleghorn's home the guests were
A entertained with a most delight'
ful motoring trip about the city. In'
stead Of sending their chauffeurs most
of tho owners of machines occupied the
driver's seat themselves and many of
the hosts further added to the pleas
ure of their guests by serving after
noon tea at their own pleasant homes
Roof Garden Hop.
LIGHTS, perfume, color; the hum
of conversation and the souuu
of women's laughter; the flash
ot bright eyes and a gllmpso of dimp
led shouldeis und abovo and over all
like the tone that clings to a picture,
tbe throb and the swell of the music
bow joyous and exultant, like a song
of triumph, uowsoft and low like a
caress dying away Into the tropic night
like the whisper ot a lover.
Tbis was the atmosphere that char
acterized the bop at the Young Hotel
roof gardeu Monday night of last week
Above arched the black velvet sky
studded with topaz stars. Below and
beyond the lights of'tbeiclty nestling
in Its tree-lined cup ot hills, gleamed
In welcome, and off toward the south
stretched tbe quiet waters of the har
bor dark with mystery.
No more Ideal setting for a dance
could be Imagined and the evening
was bne ot unalloyed pleasure for all
who attended. Hundreds ot lights ot
red and white and blue gleamed above
the roof garden, whllo the potted palms
and luxuriant ferns formed a fitting
background for the light frocks of the
women. The presence of a number ot
naval and army officers In their white
and gold uniforms added a touch of
urllllanco to the affair and formed a
pleasant contrast to the dark coated I
evenlngvdress of tbe civilians dancing ,
The floor was perfect and the music so1
good that every dance on thu program
wus encored und repeated.
A group of Hawaiian musicians fur
nished the music and tho singing of
some of the numbers added to the nnv
elty, and suggested local color. The
dance was given under the auspices ol
the Native Sons and the members ot
the visiting Editorial party were pres
ent as guests of honor. Refreshing
punch was served between dances and
those who desired more substantial re
freshments gathered In congenial lit
tle groups about the small tables scat
tered about beneath the palms. Then
were also a number a small supper
parties In the cafe. Tho affair was in
every way delightful and reflected
much credit, not only upon the Native
Sons, who gave It, hut upon tbe man
agement of the Young Hotel, whoso
uniform courtesy and solicitous Inter
est for tho comfort and pleasure of Its
rut-sts Is so well known both here and
in the States, where the fame of Itu
hospitality has spread.
