The New Year was celebrated with
much enthusiasm in Honolulu. The
festive fire cracker made every one
aware of the coming in of 1S96. The

time and the birth of another. In

little drunkenness and the city was
very orderly. The following were the

Ripikane and John Lilikoi, the remaining
political prisoners, were pardoned
and released at 10 o'clock New
Year's morning, this course having
been decided on at a special meeting
of the Council ot State on the morning
of Dec. 31st. Petitions from all
the parties expressed deep regret for
the port taken in the late revolution
and promised fealty to the Republic.
At 9:30 the eight prisoners were
called up and heard their pardons
read with great interest. There were
no outsiders present, though some had
been invited. The Government was
represented by Minister Damon, Attorney-General
W. O. Smith, and
Judge J. A. Magoon for the Board of
Prison Inspectors. The Attorney-General
read the pardons aud made a
few remarks in kind tone", which
were replied to by Major Seward with
sentiments of legard for clemency
extended by the Government. The
others showed appreciation by
the bands of the officials.
There was a large crowd of natives
outride the gatPS, a'ld when the
came out they were greeted
with loud cheers.
Concert at Y. M. C. A.
The New Year's evening entertainment
at the Y. M. C. A. was attended
by a large audience and was a success
in every way. The principal attraction
was undoubtedly the tirt appearance
of the Y. M. C. A. orchestra.
The organization, consisting of twenty
members, played excellently, the
greater portion of the audience being
taken somewhat by surprise, not expecting
such proficiency in the short
time it has been at work. Miss
McGrew rendered a fine violin solo,
Miss Richards sang, Mrs. Thos. Black
recited, the Y. H. Institute gave two
vocal numbers, and the boys' class of
the gymnasium gave dumb bell exercises.
The Indian club swinging by
David TJnaun'i was good. Quite a
handsome sum was realized.
The break caused by a washout on
the O. R. & L Co. track to Waianae
was fortunately repaired in time to
admit of the excursion which was
thought must be postponed. During
the morning various places in the
city were telephoned to saying that
the excursion would be run. This
was taken advantage of by about a
hundred Kamebameha boys aud as
many others, who enjoyed the ride to
Waianae and epent a pleasant day.
Pacific Tennis Club.
Thanks to kind friends the Pacific
Tennis Club's "At Home" from 2:30
to 6 p. m. resulted in a success most
gratifying. Tea and other light refreshments
were served. Mrs. Nichols
and Mrs. Graham kindly presided.
There was a large crowd of prominent
people present during the afternoon;
these included President Dole, Mrs.
A. S. Willis, Miss Kate Field.

"All things in their time and
all things in their place." The
place we hold is that of a
person who is trying to help
matters for the benefit of
those who use goods that is
in our line.
As Shakespeare says: "So
hallow'd and so gracious is
the time" that we are tempted
to mention a few of the items
that we consider are in season,
viz: all kinds of team collars,
best chain harness, best harness
and saddle leather, all
kinds of breeching rings and
harness fittings. Thesegoods
are seasonable if ever they
are. Something is always
bound, to get out of order no
matter how careful you may
be, and you had much better be
prepared for an emergency
than to be placed in a predicament,
when you cannot
afford to lose any time. This
is not a case of whip ! whip !
hoorah! but of a whip that
will give you value received
for money ' invested and is
conseeded to be the best representative
of the kind in
Honolulu, and comprises buck
skin lashes, whip lashes and
whip stock, for four, six and
eight horse team. In fact we
are up-to-date in what is
wanted by the plantation men
for every day use.
Going further in this line
we have all kinds of plows
needed by planters, from the
Hendry Breakers (the best
plow made) to the smallest
of rice plows; from the large
double furrow to the
middle plows so popular with
Some people like to make
their own butter and we can
supply them with the churns
to do the work whether they
want sufficient for a small
family or for the "Richelieu."
Those who make cocktails
should try one of our "Gem
Shavers" as all the experts
agree that the best kind can
be made by using one of these
shavers. You pour your
liquor into what looks like
snow, and the result will
make even the father of a
large family feel as if he owned
the world and did not care
whether school kept or not.
We have sold most of our
Aluminum Ware, but have a
few of these handsome white
brush and comb sets which
are the best and cheapest
things of their kind ever
We do not make a practice
of puffing our own wares, but
these good are something that
we wish to cali your especial
attention to, and know that
you need only to see the
goods to realize their merit.
