Definite arrangements for the carol-

Christmas Eve have now been practi

next Wednesday : evening was an
nounced this morning by Miss Mary

,At the same time. Miss Winne, on
behalf of the committee, asks that

the -spirit of spontaneity that -has so
far carried; on , the work will result in
many singers not now in any of the
groups traversing the city on Wed

commemoration of the quaint and
beautiful yuletide custom.
The programs at various "centers"
and by various groups are given be

groups will move from one center to

pointed, this office will be. In charge
of Vice-consul Arita, formerly of Ot
tawa, Canada, who is expected to ar
rive in Honolulu December 24."
At his residence on Nuuanu street
last night, the consul-general was host
at an Informal farewell banquet at
which were present prominent local
business men and journalists to the
years, and itis said that his recall to! number of 20. During the affair there
the capital will mean a promotion to
a higher; position, possibly that of
minister. During his stay in Hono
lulu he has made many friends, both
among bis own people and among
those of other nationalities and, as he
I9 a keen business man and well
versed in the English language, his
departure will be keenly felt locally.
The consul was busily engaged
throughout this morning in settling
the affairs of the local office prior to
his departure and, in a short Inter
view winch he gave a representative
oi the Star-Bulletin, his remarks were
of a nature which boded nothing but
f,cod if-r these islands and for the
Japanese residents as well. He laid
special stress on the friendly relations
which now exist between ihe Japan
ese and the people of other national!-,
ties cf Hawaii, saying that he felt
were many toasts proposed, the ma
jority relating to the good work which
the consul has done during his service
in these islands.- It was through his
efforts that the local consulate is now
composed of two large modern struc
tures; one containing the offices of
the consul and bis assistants, and the
fother the residence of Japan's repre
sentative. A fact which was brought
out at the banquet, and one which is
interesting to note, is that, during Mr.
Eitaki's service here, no complica
tions have arisen between the Ameri
can and Japanese communities. Al
though it is. rumored that there are
several men in line for the position of
Japanese consul-general here, no au
thentic details have been received as
to who will take Mr. Eltakl's place.
