Brilliant Wedding at Cummins
At 7:30 o'clock on Xew Year's eye,
Mr. Chas. Booth and Miss ' Elizabeth
Baker were united in marriage by
Bev. Alexander Mackintosh, at the
residence of Mr. J. A. Cummins on
King street. None but the family
were present at the ceremony.
At S o'clock a reception was held in
honor of the newly married couple,
and after that dancing, and a general
good time was indulged in by all. The
National band, stationed outside,
furnished delightful music for the
It is said that over 250 people were
present for the festivities.
The house was brilliantly lighted
all through, and the two rooms in
which the dancing took place were
beautifully decorated with white flow
ers of all kinds, mixed with maile,
ferns, ginger, palms and many other
green leaves. In one corner of the re
ception room was a canopy, under
which the couple were married. The
tulle which was used to make this,
was decorated with maiden hair. In
the center and to the front hung a
large wedding bell, made of white
flowers, having attached to it a couple
of long ropes made out of tuberoses.
Tbe piano, to the left of the entrance,
was one mass of green and white.
Near the entrance stood three tall
kahilis as sentinels and from the top
of the large doorway uniting the two
rooms, hung a couple of large silk
Hawaiian flags as curiains. In the
back room potted ferns and a great
number of palms were used by way of
decoration. Everything was fixed up
for a genuine good time.

The New Year was given a royal re
ception by Honolulu residents.
The festivities and merriment be
gan early Monday evening aud did not
cease till a late hour last eveuing.
There were weddings and New Year
picnic parties galore, while many of
the native families entertaiued at the
usual elaborate luaus.
Duriug the morning and late after
noon" yesterday a good many gentle
men revived the custom of New Year
calls. There was a general expression
among many of the ladies of the city
favoring the revival of this custom,
which has of late years fallen into
a sort of innocuous, desuetude.
The principal reception of the after
noon was at President Dole's, from 3
to 5. The president marked with
pleasure the cosmopolitan character
of those who called, it being a thoro
ughly representative gathering. All
. members of the diplomatic and consu

Aiu&teur "Who AVon Attention
"Snowball" Given a Thoroushlj
Perhaps no more favorable place
than the residence of Mr. J. K. Brown
at "Waikiki could have been selected
for a New Year's eve entertainment.
Eight o'clock found a very large
and decidedly "swell" audience
gathered under tbe large lanai, in
front of a red curtain that hid from
view the place where a play called
"The Snowball" was to be acted.
An orchestra of native boys sta
tioned back of the audience furnished
delightful music during the evening.
After a selection by the orchestra,
the curtains were drawn .aside and the
feature of the evening was soon in
"The Snowball" is a very spirited
and decidedly amusing play in three
acts, and affords a great opportunity
for good acting. It is the story of the
family troubles of one of the "boys,"
who tries to get the best of his wife
and fails most miserably succeeding
once, only to become plunged deeper
and deeper into disgrace by the clever
maneuvers of his scheming wife.
The parts of Felix Featherstone,
who is in hard luck, and Mrs. Feath
erstone, who never for an instant ac
knowledges herself beaten by her hus
band, were played respectively by Mr.
J. F. Brown and Mrs. "vV.W. Dimond.
Between these two there is a constant
fire of scathing words, and only in the
end, after Felix throws himself at the
feet of his wife, does the battle cease.
Mr. Brown was exceedingly funny in
his part, causing numerous ripples of
laughter. His troubles gathered as
he went so that he resembled a
"Snowball" in his make-up. Mrs.
Dimond had a very difficult part and
carried it through in a very pleasing
The parts of Ethel, the ward of
Felix Featherstone, and Harry Pren
degast, her lover, were played respect
ively by Miss Kitchen and Dr. A. E.
Nichols, Miss Kitchen was very
charming in her role. She trusted
everything to others, and especially
to her aunt. Dr. Nichols played the
Mr. Geo. C. Potter, as Mr. Thorny
croft, Felix's old uncle, who has
" been there before," played his part
with the good grace of a studied actor,
accompanying his remarks with sly
twinkles of the eye and frequent ex
pressive shrugs of the shoulders.
Penelope, the maid in Felix's home,
was played by Mrs. E. D. Tenney.
Her part was a very difficult one, but
she succeeded admirably in the im
personation of it. She skipped about
and did the bidding her master and
mistress ; she showed the usual curi
osity of the maid ; she schemed to get
all the money she could, and finally,
when she saw things were all coming
her way, she unhesitatingly made
herself mistress of the house. Her
acting would have done credit to a
After the play, a few minutes were
given to pleasant chat, the chairs
were cleared away, and the music of
a waltz announced the first number
on the second part of the evening's
entertainment the dance. It was
not until quite a late hour that one of
the most pleasant entertainments of
the year was brought to an end.
Every person present had a thoroughly
Chamberlain's Congh Remedy is
famous for its cures of bad colds. It
opens the secretions, relieves the
lungs and aids nature in restoring
the system to a healthy condition.
If freely used as soon as the cold has
been contracted, and before it has
become settled in the system, it
greatly lessens the severity of the
attack, and has often cured in a
single day what would have been a
severe cold. For sale by all dealers.

31. C. A. Kooms.
The Y. M. C. A. has reason to feel
proud of what it did yesterday for the
young men of Honolulu. As pre
viously announced in the Adver
tiser, a dinner was served and a
reception given by the ladies of the
W. (J. T. TJ. and Ys, to the delight of
all who were nresent.
The concert in the evening, ealleii;
forth a great number of people, -bvery
chair was taken and mauy people had
to content themselves with standing.
The first number on the programme
was music by Professor Berger and
several picked musicians. This put
the audience in a good humor for all
that was to come. A piano solo by
Mrs. Castle was well received.
The members of the Y H. I., ac
companied by a flute and two guitars,
sang a native song, which was heartily
encored. Mrs. Judd then sang a very
sweet little song appropriate to the
Miss Kenney delivered in a most
pleasing and natural manner one of
James "Whitcomb Biley's poems, after
which Professor Beruer again favored
the audience, who in turn gave him a
hearty encore. The members of the
Y. H. I. sang one more number, fin
ishing with the familiar "Aloha Oe "
Miss Boyer's solo was heartily en
cored, and in response she rendered
"Comin' Thro' the Bye" in a most
catchy manner. Mr. Whitney kept
the audience in a constant fit of
laughter with his rendition of "How
He Missed the Train." Mr. "Whitney
has a voice well adapted for speaking.
He was encored and gave a blood
curdling selection. The programme
was completed by Professor Berger.
3IA'AGKK DltLINGHAJl'S PARTY.
A Pleasant Visit to Honouliull and Tearl
Mr. and Mrs. Dillingham were the
kind entertainers of a pleasant party
of ten gentlemen and five ladies who
took a trip to Ewa on a special car
The object of the excursion was to
visit the Honouliuli, plantation. At
1:30 the train pulled out of the depot,
and when it reached its destination
the passengers got out to inspect the
mill, and especially the new machin
ery that has just been put up.
The party took an open car through
the cane fields, where they stopped
from time to time to get sugar cane.
At 4 o'clock the train started on its
homeward trip, taking in Pearl City
on its way. Here again the party
jumped off" and visited the various
places of interest, such as Aloha Villa.
They walked down Franklin avenue
and came upon two "roughing it"
parties from Honolulu one of girls
and one o boys. At 6 o'clock tbe
train reached Honolulu, bringing back
a profoundly grateful party.
On the afternoon of New Year's
Day Mr. and Mrs. A. F. Cooke enter
tained the young people of the Portu
guese Mission at their pleasant home.
Croquet and many other games were
played and refreshments were served
on the. lawn. Betiring to the parlor
all joined heartily in singing a num
ber of Sunday school songs. Short
addresses were made by Bev. Leading
ham and Rev. Soares,and after prayer
by Mr. Cooke, all departed feeling
very happy and grateful to Mr. and
Mrs. Cooke for their hospitality and
