' SOCIAL The engagement has been announc ed of Miss Muriel Campbell and Mr. Robert W. Shingle. Miss Campbell Is ono of the most charming young girls of the city and her husband to bo is one of tne strongest ot the younger 'business men of Honolulu. That the couplo will recelvo unlimited congra tulations is certain, for two more widely known and moro popular young people would be hard to find. M. C. C. Clapp, of this city, is among the guests at the Hotel Metropolo, In Oakland, Cal. The most interesting society event ot the week was the wedding of Miss Allco Roth and Mr. Edward Dulsen- berg which took place on Christmas Day at tho Young Hotel. Miss Roth, who has always been considered one of the prettiest girls In tho city, was naturally a most charming "bride and in her husband local society recog nizes one of its most popular young men. The beautiful ceremony of tho Epis copal service never was more charm ing than when Miss Roth and Mr. Dulsenberg were united. About twen ty of the relatives of the bride and groom were present, the affair being very quiet on account of the recent ac cident from which Mr. Dulsenberg has not yet fully recovered. Bruce Cart wright Jr., acted as best man and the hrlde was attended by Mrs. High. Rev. V. H. Bliss performed the ceremony. 4 4 Miss Hazel Hellbron of this city Is now in San Francisco, visiting with relatives. Reports received hero tell of tho many festive occasions in which she takes part and where the reputa tion of Honolulu for beauty and wit is heing well upheld. One of the jolliest of times which add so much to tho holiday season, was partaken of by a largo number of young people who were the guests ot Miss Rennio Catton last night Dancing was the order of the even ing and the young men and girls en Joyed the pleasure of this joy to the ut most, music being furnished by a quin tet club. The charming Catton home was decorated in true Christmas style and the sprigs of mistletoe were to be found here and there which caused many blushes and other Interesting happenings. A delightful supper was served and every other accompani ment that could add to the pleasure of an evening was remembered for the guests. 4 4 Princess Kawananakoa left for the mainland this morning on a long trip which will reach far through Europe before her return to this city. On ac count ot her recent bereavement she has not been seen much of In local society ot late and has been greatly missed. Her position as the real lead er of tho young matrons of this city Is always hers without question and upon her return to this city Honolulu will be once moro enriched. 4 The Engineer Athletic Club will give a dance tonight at the old Afong home at Waiklkl. The custom has been for the past few weeks to have this take place on Friday night, but on account of the holiday yesterday, the date was changed. The usual cordial Invitation to the friends of the En gineer corps Is extended and those who attend will be assured of a good time. 9 Frank E. Thompson, who has been away for the past six weeks, is ex pected to return to this city by the Korea due on Monday morning. 4 4 4 There Is to be a housewarmlng at the new "Homo for Boys" at Kallhl. The new buildings, constructed under the presidency of the Board of Health of -Mark P. Robinson, are about com pleted, and on January 9 they are to be formally opened. President Robinson is giving a luau as the feature of the housewarmlng. Invitations have just been issued. Among those invited are tho Territo rial officials and the officers-elect ot the City and County of Honolulu. It Is expected there will be about three hundred present and it will be ono ot the most completely-appointed luaus that has been served for a long time. President Robinson is sparing no pains in this matter. 4 4 4 White furs of overy sort and kind will bo greatly worn this coming win ter, partly because they make the most becoming frame to any faco, and part ly, perhaps, too, because women are at length beginning to realize that white frocks need not only he worn whon tho atmosphere registers sum' nior.

Tho workers in goms aro having tho busi est year of the last decade. Jewelry Is as important as clothes. Ono has ever so many sets to match costumes, regardless ot the fact that tho stones used may be only or glass or compo sition. No one pretends to wear real gems all the time. Why should they? When ! the extra rich put their real jewels In safety deposit boxes and wear paste imitation to the opera and balls, why shouldn't overy one wear the paste ones without the expense of buying tho real ones? Ono doesn't go around with a cer tificate to prove that the real gems aro deposited. So in this day of fancy jewelry there are many kinds of earrings. Those who can wear pendent ones have dis covered a brand-new method of mak ing thorn. Seed pearls are used In tassels that drop an Inch or two low from the ears. They begin In a flat or round stone which covers the edge of tho car. It is rather ridiculous to hear the diatribes of the uninformed talk about the barbarism of women boring holes in their ears in this age of sense. No ly observed by British residents or one does it.

Eakln Gadsby en- ( tertalned at dinner last evening In honor of Mrs. Knudsen, of Kekiha. J Hawaii, delegate to thj Rivers nnd MOVING PICTURES (From The Pacific Weekly.) A year ago a moving picture machine was a novelty in Hawaii. Today a quartet of creaky phonographs, with horns protruding through holes in fronts of transformed store rooms, call attention to as many separate 5- and io-cent shows of the motion picture class, in the city of Honolulu alone. Probably five or six more arc scattered over the other islands, furnishing never failing entertainment to hundreds of the motley population which surround them, every afternoon and evening. "Canned theatricals" fill a long 2,000 miles and more of ocean which separates the Territory from anv other land, the hero and heroine of the "realistic' one) night stand "melodrama" find it difficult to negotiate the distance, and the Territory not having a white population sufficiently large to maintain a stock company,, went amusement hungry most of the time until the picture shows came. The moving pictures have not theatres, but their comparatively cheap cost makes them patronized far more regularly than the average company which spends a few weeks here once or twice a year. The cosmopolitan character of a picture show audience, is one of the most interesting things to the visitor in Hono lulu. The small auditorium will be crowded nightly with several hun dred Americans, Portuguese, Japanese, Chinese, Hawaiians, with a sprinkling of almost every other nationality, and admixtures of the whole in every proportion. Old and young, men and women, attend m the broadest kind of democracy. A bevy of white girls, of Hono lulu's upper crust of society may often be seen enjoying the active pan tomime, while on one side a solemn visaged Chinaman in oriental splendor, may be convoying one or more demure little pantalooned ladies and a whole brood of almond side a Japanese family party may be gathered. Then there will be Hawaiians and part-Hawaiians, and all the rest of the heterogeneous races which go to make up Hawaii's population. As elsewhere, these shows are continuous performances, ?nd the audience is constantly changing. One of the theaters is located in the Oriental quarter and draws its patronage almost entirely from Japanese and Chinese, and when it is remembered that each one has to pay a license fee of $5 per day, and that the pictures have to be secured from the mainland, at no incon siderable expense, some idea of the way the places are patronized may be gained. Hawaii has been fortunate, moreover, in having had as a resident for the past two years, one of the most expert moving picture artists in the United States, in the person of Mr. R. K. Boninc, whose Hawaii an films have attracted much attention all over the country. Recently he achieved his greatest triumph in successfully photographing on the moving film, the tremendous activity of the great volcano of Kilauea. Nearly a month was spent in securing the pictures, a portion of which shows the molten lava flowing like a thick sluggish river as seen by daylight. But the most remarkable, and only thing of its kind ever secured, are his pictures of the lake of fire taken at night by Its own light. The result is a reproduction, tinted in flame color, that is spec tacular in the extreme, Only two copies of this film have been sent lo the mainland, where they are being displayed by prominent lecturers, mid are Disking a great lilt.

After the dinner a number of othc guests worn asked In to hoar the pa per on tho work of the Rlvors und Haibors Committee in Hawaii, which Mrs. Kntid'.pn read with bo much suc cess before the women's meeting ot the congrtsb. 4 4 4 Many people Jiere will bo pleased to read the subjoined item from tho British Callfornlan, ns Mr. and Mrs. Hutchinson are pleasantly remember ed here In art circles. Mr. Hutchin son was an exhibitor of sculpture at the first few exhibitions of the Kllo hana Art League. Besides executing the lurst of King Kalakaua now In tho Bishop Museum ho did similar work from llfo sittings of the late Justice McCully, Robert Louis Steven son, a child of Mr. and Mrs. C. M. Cooke and others. He also made the figures from living models which il lustrate ancient Hawaiian life In the Bishop Museum. From here Mr. Hut chinson went to tho mainland, return ing with a bride and step-daughter. Then he went to Australia for a few years. Returning to the mainland he, made his home in Southern Cantor-1 nla. Ho did some of the decorative i sculpture for tho St. Louis Exposition 1 buildings. Following is tho Item from the British Callfornlan: "King Edward's birthday was loyal- guests in pleasing manner, providing tish Association.

WEEK DIMS REVIEWED Drizzling weather did not prevent the filling of the assembly hall of tho Kllohana Art League Wednesday night to hear W. R. Castle Jr., assistant dean of Harvard College, discourse on Dick ens. In opening he referred to an ad dress he had given for the literary cir cle, of which ho was a member, some years ago in which he named tho groat poet of tho twentieth century. Now ho withdrew the nomination, tho candi date having been weighed and found wanting in his later work. In easy conversational tones and tho manner of the college lecturer, Mr. Castle reviewed tho life and works of the great English story writer. His greatness, as that ot Thackeray and others of the early nineteenth century group of intellects, was attributed by tho speaker to tho strenuous thinking of the times due to the birth of mod? I ern democracy. The French rovolution was by some loosely thought of as something that happened in France, j yet its Influence was felt in England , In only second degree to Its effect on French politics. Its relation to the American revolution wus well estab- llshed. Among the English middle class arc those going down and those going up, and the father of Dickens was in the down grade class. His affairs fared badly and Charles in early boyhood had to work In a blacking factory pasting labels. Yet it was his ne'er do well dad who, when the lad received a hard deal from his uncle, put his foot down, against tho mother's will, and insisted on the boy's being sent to school. His learning of shorthand ,Dy tolling at night and his becoming mism persisted and made him tho apostle of joyousness. His characters took joy in their very hardships. The Christmas dinner on which one's last penny was spent was one instance. Mr. Castle's critical analysis run ning through his talk was not the least appreciated element of It, and rapt attention of the auditors for an hour and a quarter attested the value of the treat. It was indeed a marvel how so exhaustive a review could have been crowded Into the time. A reception to Mr. Castle was held In the refreshment room after tne lec ture, coffee and cake being served. D. Howard Hitchcock, president of tho League, was chairman of the evening. Mrs. W. M. Graham supervised the de tails of the reception. The rooms were tastefully decorated in stylo be fitting the season. WELL KEPT JOLLY STREET SCENES CHRIST MAS EVE MALIHINIS' CHRIST MAS TREE. Christmas eve brought a tremendous crowd in the retail streets, notwith standing rain tempests at short inter vals. Horns, explosions, confottl, cos metics etc., wero used by young and old ot the fun making genus. Shopping was almost forgotten until ten o'clock, when everybody who had that in view at all suddenly remembered tho duty. Street cars running an hour later than usual were crowded all the evening. Moving picture theatres were overflow ing with patronage. Large congregations attended the va rious church services on Christmas. At the fourth services in St. Andrew's cathedral, at 10:30, Bishop Reatarick preached. Ho urged the importance to the Episcopal church of maintain ing tho religious character of Christ mas against the tendency to make it a secular holiday. No other church made tho divinity of Christ so pro mlnent in Its order of worship. This was tho central doctrine Christ him self preached. Christ, unlike tho founders of other religions gave the world a very small body of doctrine. Ho proclaimed that ho was the Light and tho Llfo of tho world, tho Son ot God, besides which His teachings dif ferentiated from those ot other great teachers wero few. Amidst the abound ing liberalism of thinking, tho divinity ot Christ yet held the mind ot man. People today wanted something posi tive and tho church offered it to thorn In Its foundation doctrines of tho di vinity and tho roaurrectlon of tho Ro doonior. In proof of tho hold of tho ICplBrnpnl church tho spoakor Instanced its growth In noston of thirty por cunt In ono year, bolng in excess ot tlmt of all othor iloiinmlimtlona.

Llttlo crip ples brought In various vehicles gave a pathetic tinge to tho Joyousness of tho occasion. Christmas was enjoyed by tho gen eral public in the usual whole-hearted manner of Honolulu. Tho town was quiet and tho stormy weather suspend ed. Family and social parties wero uni versal and there was good cheer at all the clubs. Tho evening brought a verit able cold snap, adding, for all who have known Cnristmas days In north ern latitudes, a genuine element of reality to tho great festival. The arrival of tho Alameda from San Francisco in the morning with a bulg ing Christmas mall added greatly to tho Joy of many people. Fine Job Printing, Star Office.
