Mrs. V. J. Ixi rev. The work of this circle is the best work the league has done, although its real scope- will not be fully appreciated for a number of years. "Another important department of 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 Winkle by Miss Tucker with slides made by Pres. (Jilmore from I lack ham's illustrations. "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. "The Musical circlej'Miss Katherfne Reynolds, gave a delightful evening with modern composers at Bishop's hall which was well attended, and pronounced one of the successes of the year. "A reception was given Mr. E. A. P. Newcouii), the vice-president, be fore his departure for the east.

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 plaza. 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 It ribu ted by Mr. S. M. Damon, Mr. C. T.

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 and cluttered. "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. :mm9t Chean Now On amid. 2000 PEOPLE IN HALLOWE'EN 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 were revealed. 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 time. 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 ing. advertisement. SCHOOL SITE TO BE PUBLIC PLAYGROUND The grounds of the old Fort street school, at Fort and School sireeis, lormerly the institution which served in lieu of a municipal high school, has been set aside as a public park and playground. Governor Frear ; esterday issued the executive order approving this step, which has been iirgel for some time by the members of the Children's Aid and Free Kin dergarten Association. The city is to assume the burden of supplying equipment and maintenance of the playground. I". S. marines will guard the polling booths in Nicaragua to insure an hon est vote for president.
