No prizes weio aware'ed to tho Island I'rlncesses, but each

A handsome souvenir badge was presented each Judge, Tho

lurgu rosette, and the whole hold togother with a Imnglo pin,
the top of which consists of thu Hawaiian coat-of-arms on a
shield. On tho back of tho shield nro engraved tho words, "Ho
nolulu Floral I'arade, 1909."
Kaleidoscopic in tho brilllnncy of
its coloring, artistic In conception,
and gorgeous in consummation, tho
Floral I'urude held this morning to
honor the memory of the man who
led the forces of the American colo
nies to victory in their struggle for
liberty, was all that tho most san
guine had oxpected and more.
Typical of Hawaii In every way
was the pageant, Tho magnificent
coloring of tbo llorat decorntlons
with which tho vehicles woro cov
ered, seeming In nbbolutcly harmony
with tho spirit of tho day and tbo
temper of the people.
Moiu neurly Ideal weather could
not have been nsked. For Just n few
minutes tbo day was uncomfortably
wnun, and tbo leal (lowers, used in
tho decoration of sonio of the ve
hicles, suffered somewhut, but tho
discomfort was but momentary.
And it wus as though the weather
had been arranged to order. Hardly
was tho I'urudo over, when a gentlo
shower sprung up, which laid the
dust and lemoved all truces left by
thu pubslng piocesslou.

The 1'nlaco grounds wore thronged
with eager sightseers before" the
timo set for the procession to start,
und tho police had some little diffi
culty In keeping the crowd within'
bounds. It was .not a boisterous nor
an Ill-natured throng, but the folk
did want to see what was going on,
und whenever the attention of tho
police was diverted elsewhere, thcro
would bo n general scramble toward
the forbidden territory.
In particular on the mauka sldo of
the palace, whero the sliily-otfd pa-u
riders were assembled, ' did the

of tho fcatures-of the parade.

Tho quaint skirts of the equestri

blended pleasantly to the eye, and
tho riders were so grouped that there
was no clashing of color.
