.Decoration
Religious . Observance Mnale at
Thomas? Square.
A finer Christmas morning never
passed over this latitude than that of
Tuesday." Bright skies ,and refreshing
breezes made an atmosphere as of par
adise. The shipping generally displayed
flags, the bark C. D. Bryant beautifully
dressingahip, and it line of flass connect
ing H. B M. ships Cormorant and Hya
cinth: 'Religious ceremonials in observance of
the Christian anniversary were main
tained at short intervals from 4 :30 a. in.
throughout the day in the Boman Cath
olic Cathedral. They were attended by
large congregations.
Sacred rejoicings also filled the stately
arches 1 St. Andrew's Anglican Cathe
dral, with, brief intermissions, from early
morn fillbalmy eve. The popular services
ot both Congregations were well attended,
prominent lights in other communions,
as well as "many officers of the British
and American warships in port, being
present. Tlte musical renditions by the
augmerited choir at the second congrega
tion's 11:15 service were very fine. Mr.
WrayTifylor presided With accustomed
power at the organ, ltev. Alex. Mackin
tosh, of the first congregation's clergy,
assisted the pastor in tho readings. The
church wasjastily decked in the freshest
of foliage and flowers.
Be v. "Geo. Wallace, pastor as above,
preached an appropriate sermon upon
the Nativity. Great leaders of thought,
the most illustrious conquerors, all liad
been wrapped in swaddling bands. Their,
motheis had crooned over their cradles,
singing lullabies just as that Jewish
mother had soothed her babe, with the
maternal melodies of Judea, in the lowly
manger. Science had made great dis
coveries, but was confessedly battled
when it encountered ultimates.' It could
not get back beyond the life germ whence
the greatest of earth had grown. So the
wisest, men are impotent when they
would jeek behind the event for the
origin of the man Christ. Infinite possi
bilities were comprised in the declara
tion, "A manchild is born." He may
become the powerful leader of the minds
of men, or the victorious conqueror
whose name will be forever emblazoned
on the world's history. Great men had
been remarked as the product of an
epoch' r a nationality. Such were
Goethe and Burns, and some whose
memories are perpetual for evil as well
as good works. But who should be able
to specify a period or a nation'that could
claim .exclusive possession of the Mes
siah! Exnectancv of him was raised in

Isaiah, Jeremiah and their peers the
message gaining clearness as the fulness
of time approached: "The lord shall
come suddenly o his temple." The
Jewish nation failed to recognize him
when he came, because they looked for
a conquering Redeemer coining with
banners and jKimp, but it was given to
the lowly shepherds on the plains of
Bethlehem to see his star and rejoice at
his appearance. The Christ was" claimed
by every nation, as witness the ideals
of artists. German painters gave him
their national features, as did the Italian,
the English, and others thcire respec
tively ; while even tho Central American,
grasping his rude pigments to decorate
his sanctifary, delineated the portrait of
an Aztec as his conception of the Lord.
It was natural that this should be so,
when the man thus conceived had sway
ed an influence over men, down through
tlte centuries, such as none other had
ever approached. Tho question on this
anniversary came home to all, "What
think ye of Christ?" All who appeared
before the holy altar, to observe the
-sacred memorial of his death, confessed
by their participation in the rites that
Jesus was the Son of God. It was most
appropriate at this season that gifts of
love and mercy should signalize Chris
tian rejoicing. For "If ye love not
your brother whom ye have seen, how
can ye love tho Fattier whom ye have
not seen?" So taught tho Master him
self, wliose advent was celebrated in the
Christmas festival. The discourse, of
w hich the foregoing outlines merely the
tenor, was listened to with close atten
tion by the large congregation.
A grand Christmas concert ' was given
at Thomas Square; by the Royal Hawai
ian Band, at 2 -30 o'clock in the after
noon. The attendance would have look
ed large in a smaller space, but the two
or three hundred of young and grown
people in holiday attire had ample room
in the spacious sylvan shades of this in
creasingly popular retreat. There were
seven new pieces out of nine numbers
not counting interlude and dismissal
tunes. The opening march, "Merry
Christinas," was tho composition of
Oavid Nape, a member of the band, and
proved very acceptable. " Forge in the
Forest" was played by request-, its ring
ing anvil refrain being appreciated as
highly as ever. Hearty "applause was
accorded this fantasia. Although the
band boys had been out pretty much all
night serenading, they came to time with
creciiftible fidelity to duty, while Prof.
Berger seemed to. be in his element,
with his baton eliciting tbe harmonies
that made for other people a large share
of their whole " Merrv Christmas."
AN IMPORTANT CASE
Question
of "Ownership In Semhore
Alluvion.
A trespass case important in its ulti
mate bearings, was decided, by. Police
Justice Dayton on Wednesday. It turned
upon the iioint of ownership in the accre
tion of land, to property of unambiguous
title, by the action of tho sea. From the
evidence tho following statement of the
case is made. Mr. Robert Halstead,
proprietor of Waialua plantation, held
certain of his lands to the sea. By the
action, of the waves a considerable area
known in law as "accretion" or "allu
vion" was added to the territory. The
proprietor had tho fences extended to
meet the ocean. Mr. James Gay, neigh
bor of thegentleman above-named, had
occasion to transport some freight from
the beach beyond Mr. Halstead's pro
!erly. It was a long way around to the
gates leading to tho landing, and 3Ir.
Gay, without asking permission of the
presumptive owner of the alluvion, low
ered the fence rails and took his freight
home " by the short cut. Mr. Halstead
demurred to the liberty thus taken and,
failing to get satisfaction, employed Mr.
Castle as attorney to sue for $200 dam
ages. Mr. Gay defended against, the ac
tion, employing Mr. Hartwell as attor
ney. Counsel for defendant stated at
the trial that the amount of damages was
only nominal. He only asked for judg
ment upon the matter of right, which
would bo accepted without pecuniary
damages. To make the case perfectly
clear categorical questions were drawn
up by counsel and answered by the par
ties. Justice Dayton gave judgment for
plaintiff in the sum of one dollar and
costs. An appeal was thereupon noted
to tho Supremo Court, which, if prose
cuted by the defendant, will lead to a
final scttlementof the question involved.
This will be valuable as a precedent in
the absence of legislation defining allu
vial rights specifically. In one or more
of the Australian Colonies t land is only
sold to a line within a certain distance of
the actual sea front, the Government re
serving the entire coast for navigation
facilities and improvements.

on Dec. 12th rendered an important do

by rejecting the claim of the United
States Consul at Smyrna for $72.18, ex

put off the vessel on the Island of Chios
in the Turkish Archipelago. They ap
plied to tho Consul and obtained relief
as American seamen. Jiulty Durham in
his decision holds that although they
may be American citizens, yet when
they shipped under a foreign flag, they
lost the right to the claim of American
seamen, as they must be judged by the
flag under which thev sailed. Ho. there

A SKNSATION.
A Sermon that Astonished the French
Canadian Annexationists.
A sensation has been created among
the French Catholic advocates of annex
ation in Montreal by a sermon delivered
on a recent Sunday by tho Rev. Abbe
Rousselot at the aristocratic church of
St. James of which ho is the cure. Abbe
Rousselot selected as.his subject the sys
tem of education in the schools of the
Province. He exhorted the French
Canadians to repel the idea being put
forth by the enemies of the church of an
nexation to the United States. "It
would be much better," said he, "to live
with our present system of Government
with a'confederation of the Provinces. If
we should be so foolish as to annex, our
selves to the Republic across the border
with its free thinkers, horetics and laxity
of religious morals, the mixed schools
which there predominate would in a
short time become part of our system of
schooling. The danger that would result
to Catholics from this mixing of morals
and-religion can hardly be estimated."
Interregnum on the Police Ilench.
Counsel, defendants and, civil suitors
were ready for business .in the Police
Court room on Friday morning, but no
magistrate appeared to hold the scales
oT justice. The lawyers waited and
laughed to each other over the evident
deadlock in the peace judiciary. After
an hour's suspense Deputy Marshal
Hopkins announced that the Court
would not sit that day. The two years'
term of Justice Dayton had, it appears,
expired. One of the Ministers (Mr.
Thurston) had not returned from -the
other islands. The Chancellor of the
Kingdom, who signs the commission,
was, moreover, out of town.., A good
deal of inconvenience was caused by the
hiatus, not only to parties to cases al
ready in Court, but to jwrsons desiring
to have important writs signed by the
Police Justice. "

FATAL ACCIDENT.
.Melancholy Death or Kev. anil 3trs. IV.
D. OlesonM Eldest Son on Ctirlitraas
Dy.
A terrible bereavement suddenly fell
ujion the household of Rev. Wt B. Ole
8on , Principal of Kameharaeha "School
for Boys, on Tuesday. Charles, tho
eldest son, a lad of 12 jfcars, met with
an accident on the premise's in tho fore
noon which resulted in death in the
afternoon.
The bright little fellow had gone over
to tho Preparatory School in the monti
ing, to wish his young Hawaiian friends
Merry Christmas and distributo'presents"
to them. Starting to return home, no
body saw how it happened, lie went
through a. window. The broken glass
cut him below the knee, severing the ar
tery, and in the few minutes elapsing be
fore ho was discovered he had lost much
of the vital fluid. Dr. McGrew being
hastily summoned was at the house in
half an hour, but the loss of blood before
its flow -was stanched proved to have
been too great for the unfortunato child
to rally from. He died at half-past 5
o'clock.
The very esteemed couple and their
young family will have the most heart
felt sympathy of the community in their
eeedingly sad bereavement. -
funeral of Charles Olcson.
The late. Charles Oleson, son of the
Principal of Kameham'eha School, was
buried from that institution yesterday af
ternoon. A large concourse attended the
funeral, including many of the lamented
boy's mates in day and Sunday school.
Rev. Dr. Beckwith conducted tho service,
assisted by Rev. AV. C. Merrittf.Princi
pal of Oahu College. The former deliv
ered a sympathetic address, voicing, the
community's condolence with tho nf
flicted parents, in the sudden taking off
by accident of their promising son.
The exercises were opened with an an
them beautifully sung by the pupils un
der the leadership of Hon." H. S.
Townsend, a ymembar of the faculty.
Floral offerings were exceedingly beauti
ful and in great number. Pupils of the
school lined the driveway in front of tho
house, tho hearse passing between the
ranks as the procession started. Older
pupils of the institution were the pall
bearers. There were 35 carriages in lino
on the sad march to Nuuanu Cemetery.
FKAltS OF A PEST.
ltumored Introduction or .IIoiijooso on
this Island.
a
A gentleman expressed to the Adver
garding a reported intention of introduc
ing the mongoose on a plantation of this
island for the purpose of clearing off
rats. He would like to know whether
the planter in question was taking into
account the "responsibility incurred in
letting the rapacious little animals loose.
Whenever they got the rats out of the
way they would begin upon tho market
poultry ranches abounding near the
plantations, thus menacing an important
department of the city's food supply.
They would also multiply all over the
country, threatening the extinction of the
few species of our wild game, such as
the pheasant and the teal duck. As the
