The New Church Building just

on the Islands. But even more
important, perhaps, it is an ex

with his sister,' Mrs. Jack Meyers
of Kilauea.
Ed. called to see us this morning
(and the good things he said about
things in general and Tin; Gar-

us to douse our lid and set up the
soda water. He informed us that
he had paid his annual visit to the
Kilauea school and that he is be

for the children, all of which leads
us to believe Ed. has missed his
vocation he should be a school

In Memoriam
Horn a t Kawaihao, Honolulu
.lar. 7, 1884, bam iUalielona was
thus in the very prime of life when
ne was called uence. as a very
little boy he began his education
at Honolulu's first Kindergarten
and continued it successively at
Punahou, Belmont and San Jose,
fitting himself carefully for the
business career which he h a d
chosen. With a physical constitu
tion none too robust at the best,
it was perhaps unfortunate that
he should have chosen an, occupa
tion involving sedentary life which
in conjunction with great social
popularity, left him little time for
fresh air and exercise Immediately
on his return from school he secur
ed the position of assistant cashier
in the Lihue Branch of the Bank
of Hawaii, which he resigned only
to accept the. responsible position
of receiver iu the First National
Bank of Hawaii, a position which
he held until failing health com
pelled him to resign.
To a rare degree he was gifted
with the kindly geilerous graces
of frankness, courtesy, geniality
and responsiveness, qualities which
commend their owners to all about
them. And with him these were
not acquired graces, worn 'more or
less awkwardly but natural and
easy, because inherent.
These qualities win favor and
make friends at every turn. This
was eminently the case with Sam
Mahelona. Wherever he went he
made friends even up to the last
hours of his life, and under the
most trying circumstances.
To know him at all even casu
ally was to like him; to know him
intimately was to love him and this
must explaim the enthusiastic ad
miration of a very wide circle of
acquaintances, as well as the deep
er devotion of more intimate

None named thee but to praise.

"No Taro Patches For Our Women-Hats
And Dresses,"
Says "594."
A prominent Eastern magazine
to wit The Independent is very
much exercised over the prevalence
of Mormonism in Hawaii. We'
are constrained to believe that the
Mormon propaganda has spreadlike
wild-fire through the Islands: that
'.hundreds of plural marriages"
have been performed by the Elders
of this faith; that "the only limit
to the number of wives a man may
have is his ability t o support
them" and that in the remote
districts, where women as well as
men work in the fields, raise taro,
make mats and brooms and curios,
it is very easy for a man to figure
out that the number of wives he
may possess is limited only by the
number of women who will con
sent to live in his house, where
they herd together like concu
bines." All this is news to us. We had
always supposed that this was one
of the most nionogamic countries
iu the world, where a man was
mighty lucky if he got even one
wife all to himself; and he had to
be mighty "smooth" and mighty
civil and mighty docile to do it!
Brooms and mats and taro for
sooth! Nav, gowns, and hats and
doctors' bills!
And the women of Hawaii, little

any fractional part of a man. No't

A Rare Curio

Copper Cent pieces of the comage

posed in peace for over 50 years.
They now have a long rest ahead
of them at Hanalei.
