The others having proved suc

of the subject, Res; "That the hope
of reward ls a greater incentive to

exercises which are both interes

days discharging official and social
duties to the Queen of the Sand
wich Islands. The remainder of
Washington Society has divided its
time between the Jockey Club ra
ces, the opera and the circus.
Lach day there has been a full
program for the entertainment of
the Hawai In visitor, which upon
hoing fully carried out found roy
alty was much tntigued and will
ing to rest. Tin; Queen weighs
about two hundred pounds appa
rently, aud Washington weather ls
warmer than that which she hus
recently felt, Judging from tho fact
that she arrived from Chicago in a
travelling garment of fur.
The events of ber first day in
Washington begun with a visit to
the President at noon, accompan
ied by her suit. All visitors had
been excluded from the White
House at ten o'clock, so that only a
few correspondents wore in the
corridor when the victoria, drawn
hy white horses drew up under the
portico. Mr. Carter, the Hawaiin
minister in full official uniform of
white cloth with a profusion ot gold
braid, escorted the Queen neros
the portico and corridors i ito the
liluo parlor where th P.?.sidont
and Mrs Cleveland, unattended,
were waiting to receive the si ito.
The President advanced and ta
king her hand, bade her welcome
to our country, presented Mrs
Cleveland, ?md after the other
members of the party had been In
troduced by the interpreter, gener
al conversation followed. Her
majesty wore a long trimmed dress
of black satin elaborately trimmed
> with gold-braid, a black bonnet and
carried a small fan of .sea-gulls
down with a yellow cort re. At the
close of tho visit, which did not oc
cupy more than fifteen minutes,
the royal party returned to their
! apartments at che Arlington, where
] an hour and a half later Mrs Clcvo
; land and the ladies of the Cabinet
i returned \t\\o Queen's call. Two
i hours, I believe,is the utmost limit
. allowed by the royal etiquette for
: returning visits.

I Kapiolani looked very closely ut
all of her surroundings, and ob

When sight-si oing tit tho Capitol
tho Queen showed special interest
in the Hall of the House of Repre
sentatives. This, she said was on
account of the cordial reception ac
corded to her husband there by
Speaker Plaine, whoo His Majesty
Kalakaua visited this city several
years ago. Put she says the most
delightful experience she has had
in America was at the Deaf and
Dumb college III this city. She is
greatly interested in the work of
odttcotlngjdeaf mutes,and thc Pres
ident of Kondall tireen, knowing
this, arranged an entertainment io
her honor ami invited her. Expres
sing hor delight with the exercises
she made the remark that she wish
ed she could have embraced all of
UK; pupils. Today she visited tilts
tomb of Washington with a dis
tinguished party as escort, and this
evening she is dining at the White
Fx-Representative Harbour, of
Virginia, who is himself a man of
fine address and (defiant manners,
was recently speaking of President
Cleveland as a host, and was en
thusiastic in his praise. He thinks
he never knew a man occuping a
high official position moro easy of
