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
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.

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

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.

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.
The Engineer Athletic Club will

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

shouldn't overy one wear the paste

Ono doesn't go around with a cer

So in this day of fancy jewelry there
are many kinds of earrings. Those

(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
"Canned theatricals" fill a long

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
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

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

can flags and other decorations em-

cal and literary programme was ten-

Harbor Congress.
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-
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.
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.

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

have known Cnristmas days In north

reality to tho great festival.
The arrival of tho Alameda from San

tho Joy of many people.
