"The year just closed finds the
Kilohana Art League still alive and
with brighter prospects than for sev
eral years past The Board of Direc
tors have found great pleasure iu
working together for the welfare of
the club. Out ' inspiration has bfeen
fhe belief that; Honolulu has need of
an organized center for culture and
useful purposes, and that the Kilo

ed as to meet) this needUia chang
ing of the naine of the club from
Kilohana Art League to Kilohana

its object, re'belieVe will mark the

the best work the league has done,

the club is the Art History class. The
Board of Directors autnorized the pur
chase of a few important reference
books which have been a great stimu
lus to the study.
"The entertainments of the year
opened with a reading from Rip Van

"The two evenings given by the
Literary Circle, Miss Ermine Cross,
were a great success. One was an
Arnold Bennett evening, and the other
an educational program in which play
grounds and the Montessori method
of education were discussed.
"Mrs. Sarah Merrill gave us a
very delightful talk on Jerusalem,
where she lived for sixteen years.

ik possible. The China painting from
I he College of Hawaii dnd Mrs. Per
cy's studio was of unusual interest.
The paintings were largely from the
brush of Mr. Hitchcock. Besides the
general exhibit, there have been five
visiting artists who have exhibited in
the league rooms. Miss Withrow. Mr
W'm. Adam. Mrs. Pogson. Miss Anna
Klumpke. and Mr. Duncan Smith
What ever activities the club may
assume in the future there willalways
be a need for an exhibition room,
here visiting artists as well as lo
cal artists may exhibit their work and
be introduced to the public.
"Whether Honolulu is ready for a
large club with a suitable building,
the coming year will decide. If each
member would take a personal inter- J
est in th- activities of the club, conie
forward with ideas, and stand ready
to help in every way they can. Hono
lulu would in a short time have an
active club center of which we would
all be proud."
One of the most interesting ac
counts of the year's work was that of
the Outdoor Circle read by Mrs. Fred
erick J. Dowrey. This department of
the Kilohana Club though still young
has done splendid work this past year
or rather since January. For it was in
that month that it was formed by
Mrs. Frederick .1. Ixiwrev. Mrs. Henrv
Waterhouse, Mrs. C. M. Cooke, Mrs.
George Sherman and Mrs. Isaac Cox.
Snce then members have been added
to the list continually, and there are
now more than one hundred women
who are active in the work. Mrs. Low
rey told of the steps that the Circle
has taken and of the work already ac
complished. The first venture was
the planting of monkey-pod trees at
Aala Park. The women were persis
tent in their work and in February
were accredited to the Oahu Central
Improvement Club. Mrs. Lowrey and
Mrs. George Sherman attended the
meeting of this club.
Parking Plan Succeeds.
One of the early steps taken by the
members of the Outdoor Circle was
the parking of Alapai Plaza. Mrs.
Henry Waterhouse and Mrs. C. M.
Cooke took this up in March. The
plan is to have a large tringular park
ing in the center of the space and to
plant it with shade trees. These will
probably be monkey-pods. Already a
beautiful fountain has been promised
and it will be an ornament to the
In March the subject of reducing
the width of Kalakaua avenue was
brought up before the supervisors, and
several - suggestions were made,
among them the? widening of the side
walks or the parking of a square ten
feet wide and one . mile long. This
seemed the most feasible, as the pri
soners can do work in the street
whereas they may not work on a side
iwalk. Prisoners are working there
every day and when the ground is
ready the planting iwiii be done. , Mr.
Hosmer has suggested that a species
of the mahogony tree of South Africa
be used. These trees will be planted
about fifty feet apart. When the rains!
come clumps of oleanders will also
be planted. Oleanders are being con

women who are interested in the work
of the circle.
It is the plan of the Outdoor Circle
to make Honolulu a hibiscus city so
that in 1915 the hibiscus will blossom.;
like the rose. Owing to the lack of'
rain there has been little planting
this summer though Mrs. J. A. Oilman
Has planted b. number o: ponciaua
rees along Wilder avenue.
Mrs. Lowrey also spoke of the in
terest that is being taken in the beau
tifying of the city by the Japanese.
Now Mr. Canavarro is co-operating
with the Circle and is trying to inter
est the Portuguese. The plan is , to
have meetings with th$m and show
them pictures with a lantern of many
of the beautiful .streets away from
here. ' " 1 ,
The Hawaiian women are taking a
great interest in the Queen Emma
Park. One day each week a number
of women from Palama go there, an
other day the Kalihi women and still
another day a group from Makiki. -
Mrs. C. S. Holloway who is chair
man of the Queen Emma Park com
mittee is anxious that the old home
be renovated and that a Japanese wo
man be put there who could serve
tea or soda water to picnic parties.
"We would like a great collection
of begonias and a great collection of
all our ferns," said Mrs. Lowrey.
"Tourists are constantly asking for a
sight of the wonderful Island ferns
and there is no collection to show."
Faults to be Remedied,,
In her closing remarks Mrs. Low
rey said. "Our gardens are crowded
"Our hedges are too bare and glar
ing. "Our sidewalks are notoriously J
bad or wanting altogether.
;Liet us at once remove , all old
fences, plant hedges,, plant shade
trees in the streets, tAean our side
walks, lay concrete walks and curb
the sidewalks as :ar as possible.,"
At the conclusion of ,the report the
amendments to the .by-laws were
read and accepted.
It's better to have run and lost than
never to have made a start.
PARTY AT PALAMA
Kins llilaiity reieruetl supreme ar
I'alaaii Settlement lat nieht when
i.eaily i wo thousann men. women and
children of the neitjlihorluwxi nttended
the hip Halloween party and street
arnivsl in t he spacious c uma.-i
Of couise. the kiddies formed the
largest per cent of the patherint;. an1
it as one of' the happiest and most
orderly crowds that has assembled in
i he citv for many months.
The time set for the opening of the
affair was 7:20 o'clock, hut a
crowd had begun to gather around
the door long before this hour, and
when the doors were finally openc .
there were at least TOO waiting to
enter. Many of the youngsters came
in costume; there were witches,
ghosts, clowns, tramps, bull-moosers
and many other representations.
Around the floor of the gymnasium
various booths had been set up at
which candy, pies, soda water and
peanuts were dispensed. Then there
was the fish pond with fishes in the
i-hape of prizes. Perhaps the biggest
attraction of; the evening was the
shoot the chiites. This was a free at
traction and; there was a continuous
btream of youngsters sliding down it
from the time the doors were thrown
cpen until it was time to go home.
It was here the clown Bowen field
forth with a .megaphone, keeping a
watchful eye on those using the chute
and delivering an eloquent line of talk
all the' wbtle,
Down near the stairway there was
a mysterious little room, the door of
which was covered with green cloth,
and back of which was a most un
canny ghost. It certainly had the
children guessing1 for awhile until
some one pulled the curtain down, and
the features of a well known citizen
While all this was going on, up
stairs' an initiation was taking place
in a) room off the swimming tank.
The Victims were selected at random
from the crowd, girls as well as boys,
and hustled into the room where they
were seized, blindfolded and put in a
sacll with just their heads out. After
the were ducked in a big tub of
water they were given a generous
coat of grease paint on the front of
their heads and were presented with
an apparatus that was. a cross be
tween a horse fiddle and a siren.
There was a pie-eating contest and
an apple-eating contest, and then the
confetti commenced to fly. The
weighing machine over in the makai
corner did a rushing business and the
aeroplane, trips to Kaumakaplli
church went off without mishap. At
nine o'clock the crowd commenced to
go, although It' was nearly ten before
the last one had made his departure.
Great credit is due to the workers
of the settlement, and the outsiders
who assisted, in the successful way
the affair had been arranged. . It was
not in any sense a money-making af
fair, but tickets were sold at the door
tor the different attractions at the
low rate of ten for five cents, one or
two tickets being charged for the dif
ferent features. It was a pronounced
success, and was pleasing to those
who had charge of the affair to know
that everyone present had had a good
SALE AT THE
The Canton Dry Goods Co. an
nounces that their annual November
sale will commence tomorrow
morning and will continue two weeks,
during which time the stock of this
big department store will be placed
on sale at ridiculously low prices.
This sale is in keeping with the
Canton's policy of clearing their
shelves for their Christmas goods,
which are now on the v ay and, ac
cording to the management, will
cram the store to capacity, which
makes it absolutely necessary to dis
pose of a big lot of the present stock
A feature of the sale is that the
store will give green stamps with ev
ery purchase, thereby enabling the
purchaser to get something for noth
