In Honolulu us It was celebrated on
ttiiliinlnv last. Never In tho annals
of the metropolis of Iluwull has such.
an auspicious event boon selournici
In so lavish anil so beautiful it man
ner. The carnival of ronfcltl of
tho provious evening seemed to huvo
put over) body In Rood humor, I'eo
plu were already astir when tho
sun glanced over Koko Head.
All boro presents to dear ones', all
reemed to be anxious to make Christ
inas n merry and a happy day. With
Mich a Rood start it could not have
been otherwise. It was Mallhlul
Day. The Clnlst Child, whoso
birthday wus celebrated, was In one
fccnse of the word a Mallhlnl on sev
eral ncraslons, and, It was Indeed
fittliiR that thousands of Honolulu's
best citizens should be on their way
to lllshnp Park to Rladden tho hearts
t.f orphans and tho children of our
very poor who havo nircptcd Chris
tianity and who were present to bo
entertained by Christian people.

For weeks past the Rood people
of this fair city hud been preparing
for tills Rieut day. That thoy have
been doubly rewarded for nil the

I ml only to Raze upon the faces of
the hundreds of little children as
sembled, to note the heavily laden
tables literally overflowing with
lojs, candy nnd nil manner of good
thlnRs so dear to the hearts of young
people, to feel proud of Honolulu and
her people. What did It all mean?
Simply this: Sir. and Mrs. J. J.
llrynii nnd dnuRhtor of Rochester,
N. Y., the Misses Murphy of Helena.
Mont.; Mr. and Mrs. Jackson of
South Dakota and their cousin, A.
Cassldy, were visltois in Honolulu
In the winter of 1908, They felt
homesick. Surrounded by a wealth
of troplcnl follnRO, ruRRcd mountnlns
and sparklhiR waters from oft whoso
bosom Rcntlc zephyrs blew, this did
not seem like Christmas to them,
when compered to tho sleet and Bnow
uf theli own homeland. Tholr
hearts nehed for n Christmas tree
and for Christmas cheer, so they
originated what is now known us
"Mallhlnl Day.'" Thoy planned a
treat for S00 children of Honolulu's
poor, hut actually some 1,200 little
bojs and Rlrls wcro provided for.
This spirit of generosity becama ho
infectious that tho pcoplo of Hono
lulu have now mudo It a popular
event, so that each succeeding
Christmas Day will also be a Mall
On tho lawn In tho tenter of lllsh
op l'ark, stood an immcnKc Christ
mas tree decorated with Bold and sil
ver tlnsol and Imitation snow. In
front of this wcro flvo long tables,
euch presided over by a bovy of Ho
nolulu Horlety dumes.
On the first wore 1,100 huge
bacs of assorted candy In charge of
Mrs. Elizabeth Church, who was
nbly assisted by Miss Thclmn Mur
phy and Miss Martha McClioney.
At tho second wcro 700 dolls or ovory
size, Hhupe and complexion, muny
fully dressed, others waiting for
their foster mothois to make them
tonio clothes. " This table was un
der tho supervision of Mrs. . E.
Murphy, her assistant holpcrs being

Lean. Next to this wns a tnblo lad
en with masks and horns, presided
over by Mrs. C. N. Arnold and Mrs.

i. Angus. This was the fun-mak
ing table. It was Indeed n sight to
seo these two kind-hearted ladies
surrounded by scores of children and
i on verting pretty little Chinese Rlrls
Into fcarsomo looking monsters;
cute little Hawaiian children Into
downs, nnd winsome tots of all na
tionalities Into bearded old man.
The bojs were hot forgotten, as
C. C. lltoiiimcdlcu hud pocket
Knives by tho gross on his table, and
the faces of these llttlo fellows wcro
wroitlicd In smiles of Joy when their
outstreuched hands clasped a treas

chiefs by tho hundreds, many with
fancy borders, were on the fourth

icqulrcd tho greatest dexterity on
the part of Mrs. 0. W. It. King, Mrs.
James Guild and Mrs. M. II. Webb to
keep tho long lino of girls moving.
At tho last'tnlilo were miscellaneous
toys, such as spades and buckets,
kites, clock-work tos mid oven noro
plancs. Theso were In charge of J.
K. Clark nnd II. 1". Lemon. In addi
tion to all these, nn extra tabic had
to be requisitioned fur tho oranges
with which each little child wns sup
plied. These were In the hands of
Mrs. C. 8. McLaren, Mrs. Walter
Hoffmann, 8. lleitson and Dr. Mon
sarrat. Helping nil theso good pcoplo
were a number of gentlemen, who
t pared no efforts to make things run
smoothly. Their names are as fol

and shirt sleeves rolled up, they
proved of Inestimable value In keep

Small Craft Unable 7o

A lough sea has been kicked up out
sldo tho harbor of Honolulu this morn
ing which to considerable extent has
retarded tho movements of shipping
at this port.
Tho succession of strong South
Easterly winds approaching to the
Intensity of n galo prevailing on Sun

strong swells which dashed against
tho breakwater formed by tho reef
and rendered travel by any of the
smaller launches or other craft ox

early this morning after about fifty
days steaming from various South

brings n shipment of fifteen hundred

Tho Tojo Kisen Kalshn litter kept

Tho Pacific J"ll liner Mongolia was
reported from Koko Head at 9:50 this
morning. Tho big vessel had been
plowing through choppy seas which
materially cut down her speed In

After a consultation between tho
