WE AKE THANKFUL!,.
Of course wo are thankful to-day.
Sanford B. Dole has issued a proclamation,
in which he addresses a
special message of thanks to tho
Supreme Being for tho prosperity
and peace enjoyed by our people
during the past year. You won't
believe us boys? Read then the
whole proclamation of the dear old
whiskers who, by Ihe way, spends his
thanksgiving day iu tho remotest
corner of tho lauds of our people.
Hero is S(and) B(ag) Dole's proclamation:
In view of tho countless public
aud private blessings which have
contributed to tho condition of prosperity
and peace enjoyed by our
people during tho past year, I, Sanford
B. Dole, President of the Republic
of Hawaii, recommend that
Thursday, the 25th day of this pro-sent
month of November, bo sot
apart as a day of national thanksgiving
to Almighty God for those
His gifts, and of prayer for the continuance
of His favor.
But dear friends, as we are to bo
annexed, according to Mr. Jones,
in a few weeks it will bo appropriate
to learn the American style of doing
the thanksgiving business and in
the future disponso with tho stylo of
ahort addresses of Mr. Dole, who
"evidently thinks that he is running
a special cable between Puuwaawaa
and reserved seats on the rainbow
of the hereafter.
Govoruor Budd of California is
also grateful to God, and tho fellows
on tho beautiful rainbow. Ho
notices that another yoar has gono
by and that Durrant is still un
hanged. His language in his proclamation
is beautiful and to tho
point and his references to t he-purses
of his peoplo in California aro
simply touching. Here is Budd'o
call for thanksgiving prayers:
Thursday, November 25, A. D.
1897, is hereby appointod a day of
publio thauksgiving. On said day
let I ho peoplo of this State give
thanks to Almighty God for the
manifest blessings enjoyed by us
during tho past year, and in recognition
of said blessings let us miuglo
with our thanks such alms ns our
hearts may dictate and our purses
In witness whereof L havo hereunto
s,et my hand and caused tho
great seal of the State to bo hereunto
affixed, this 16th day of November,
A. D. 1897.
