What should be said at the end of
this story will be stated right here
in a paragraph. The Thanksgiving
feast given by the ladies of Honolulu
yesterday to the soldiers now within
the city h gates went oil In a manner
entirely satisfactory to the residents,
nnd in n way that was most gratify
ing to the boys in blue, who found
themselves, on this day of days, so far
from home and friends. It has shown
the soldiers that Honolulu does re
spect and appreciate them, and has
drawn the people of the town move
closely to the men in the tents than
ever before. The departure of the
New Yorkers will be regretted by the
city, which is just beginning to know
them well, nnd the boys from the Em
pire state have mode friendships here
which will be most reluctantly sev
ered. Following is an account of the
Thanksgiving feast at the various
camps and hospitals:
NEW YORKERS FEASTED.
The real big Thanksgiving dinner of
yesterday was in the camp of the
First New York regiment ut Waialae,
containing something like 800 men.
Lute Wednesday eight long tables
from the grounds of the Executive
building were arranged near the
white city beyond Knalawoi. There
was one for the oilicers and seven for
the companies. Early yesterday
morning the ladies appointed to enrrv
out the feast authored there. The
food was taken out in wagons suppli
ed by Colonel Barber.
It was 1 o clock when the companies
"fell in" at the tobies. At thot time
appetites were whetted and nil wre
in thorough trim to enjoy the feast.
lhe tables, orrunged parallel to each
other, were loaded with all the good
things afforded by the mnrket and
were prettily decorated with flowers
and evergreens. On the bill of fnre
were fish, potatoes, turnips, turkey
and cranberry sauce, potato salad,
chicken salad, bread and butter, chic
ken pot pie, coffee, ginger nle, soda
water, ice cream and cake, nuts, ra
isins and n half dozen other dishes,
The effort of the ladles was to make
the boys feel that they were at home
nnd were having an old time Thanks
giving. In this spirit the soldiers
were concordant, and entered into the
feast with homelike enthusiasm. The
dinner lasted nearly an hour. Nearly
an hour more was spent at the tables
talking. Several times cheers were
proposed for the ladies and were en
Mrs. Dole was manager over all of
the feast arrangements at the New
York camp. Besides a corps of young
ladies, who assisted greatly in enter
taining the boys in blue, the follow
ihg were in charge of the separate ta
bles: Mrs. F. M. Hatch, Mrs. C. B.
Cooper, Mrs. S. M. Damon, Mrs. In
galls, Mrs. II, E. Waity, Mrs. T. G.
Thrum and Mrs. Harold M. Scwoll.
These ladies were thanked during the
afternoon cordially by individual
members of the regiment for the eiv
Another Teal pretty l.east on
Thanksgiving day was ,ut Kapiolani
park. About 350 men sat down to it
Grace was said at 12 o'clock sharp.
Four lonir tables covered with snowy
linen, flowers in large vases and viands
to tempt the gods, presented them
selves before the sturdy westerners,
The attack was immediate, determln
ed nnd successful. At one table, super
vised by Mrs. Robert Lowers, sat the
officers of the battalion, with Major
Langfitt at the head. At the others
were the enlisted men. It was nil the
heart could desire. In charge, of the
tables occupied by the enlisted men
were Mrs. John A. McCandless, Mrs
John II. Soper nnd Miss Nellie Judd
At the conclusion of the feast three
cheers were given for the ladies and
for tlio good people of Honolulu.
Une ot the prettiest and most uu
press! ve feasts of the day, and one pir.
haps most appreciated, was that to
the sick in the military hospital at In
dependence park. Here nil the cheer
that tender hands, kinds words, flow
ers and the good things one longs for
and expects to have on Thanksgiving
day, was brought. About 118 men
were nble to sit down in the ninin din
ing hall to the feast. Each was treat
ed witli the tenderness of a child
Most of those ut table were allowed
by the physicians to eat anything in
sight. This they lost no time in do
In the sick wards were perhaps
hundred men. Gruel, soups and lit
tie delicacies, os allowed by the physl
clans, wero prepared for them. By
each cot wero large bouquets of pretty
flowers. "It is wonderful how bright
nnd cheerful the men have become to
day," said an attendant. "Tho now
nbout going home and tho reception
by tho ladles today have dono more
good than n barrel of medicines."
Mrs. Riemehsehneidcr decoroted tho
rooms for the feast. Mrs ,T. N. Wrlgh
was superintendent over nil. She wos
assisted by Mrs. Parke, Mrs. J. B
Atherton, Mrs. Oilman, Mrs. II. Pratt
