Christmas Brings the
Children Happiness.
In All the Hilo Churches Exercises Arc Held in Which the
Children Participate With Credit to .Themselves and
' Their Teachers. Christmas Week Cantatas, Tableaux,
Songs and Dialogues Brighten Gift Giving Season.
Christmas festivities iu Hilo have
never before been as interesting as
they have been this year. The
children in all the Sunday Schools
and missions of the city have been
working for a mouth past, under
the tutelage of industrious and pa
tient teachers in preparation for the
eventful week. The little folks, as
a result have not only entertained
the crowds that have gone to hear
and see them, but they have given
their elders an object lesson of
what may be accomplished by earn
estness of purpose and industrious
application. This year every
church in the city was the scene of
happiness and good cheer upon
some one night'.
The boys and girls of the Sun
day School held dominion in the
First Foreign Church Tuesday
night. So many were present that
it was impossible to believe any
were left at home. The children
were given the front seats and
when they were all in, there were
scarcely any back seats for the
The Church was decorated beau
tifully. Starr, in
silver and zM-if
upon a background of green ferns
glittered along the chancel, and
bamboo and palm ornamented the
The program was a novelty and
was carried out by the children
with precision and grace. Iu the
various scenes and dialogues the
children acted their parts with ar
tistic cunning. The work of in
struction had been most thoroughly
done, for in all the compilations of
dialogue and stage fright none of
the little ones blundered.
The evening's program opened
with the chorus, "Glory to God"
which was followed by responsive
reading and prayer by Rev. Mr.
Nash. Isabel Kennedy gave a
recitation entitled "My Dolly." A
song.by a chorus of little, folks was
given merited applause. The vocal
solo by Catherine Howard pleased
the audience very much'. Ralph
Richards distinguished himself in
the delivery of a recitation .entitled
"Bob's Violin." One of the musical
treats of the evening was a Christ
mas carol rendered by Emma Rose,
Catherine Howard and Antone
Then followed the most elaborate
scene of the evening. It was the
production of The "Mother Goose
Children," Jack and Jill, Little Boy
-. . , T, , , ,
Blue, Little Bo Peep aud Jack
Jack and Jill were represented by
Roderick Pearson and Ruth
Stacker. They came on the stage
with a pail in search of the fabled
pail of water. Jack Horner was
represented by Buster Stacker. He
did not look hungry but kept up
his searcii for the plum pie until he
got it. Little Boy Blue was im
personated by Lyle Holmes and
Bo-Peep by Marguerite Purdy.
Gertrude Willfong was "Mother
Goose" and at the proper moments
emerged from a
gigantic book on
the platform and gratified the
wishes of the children characters.
This' was followed by a Santa
Clans dialogue in which
Lindsay represented Santa Clans,
having,a heart to heait talk with
Irene Maby and Harry Muuiby.
Both of these exquisite little
!" Jnes were the result of the patient
t:aining of the children by Mrs. E.
1$. Holmes.
Iu the Sunday School room
vtbich had been concealed during
tie evening by sliding doors, there
had been prepared another scene
fr the children. The church was
darkened and the sliding doors
0 lened. The Christmas tree loaded
with presents and brightly illumi
nited burst into view olid was
g eeted with hand clapping and
g isps of delight by all the young
sters, The primary pupils were led
j;-! a file about the tree and given
sdats in a circle. The heavy laden
lWhs were then strinDed of their
Cmistmas fruit and all of the
IchUdren and all of the grown-ups
were made happy.
I The Christmas exercises at
Waiakea mission Monday night
wsre perhaps as interesting as any
held in Hilo this season. The house
was taxed to its utmost seating
capacity by the number of visitors.
The room had been lavishly decor-

decorations were of ferns, ti-leaves
and maile. As the visitors came
into the room a lei of maile was
thrown over the head of each one.
The program was carried out
under the direction of Mrs. L. C.
Lyman, anu consisted ot songs,
recitations and choruses by the
children of the mission. The mem
bers of the Boarding School sang,
Mr. V. H. Beers rendered a solo,
and Miss, Sarah Lyman rendered a
piano selection. A vocal duet by
Misses Wight and Engelhart of the
Hilo hospital was appreciated as
was also the piano piece by Miss
There were loads and loads of
presents distributed from a Christ
mas tree among them being several
baskets full collected at the services
at the First Foreign Church Sunday
night. There were useful presents
for the elders; dolls and toys and
candy for the children. Rev. S. L.
Desha made a brief address to the
childreu and interpreted the talk
made by Rev. Mr. Nash lo the
older people present. The Christ

unristmns story... Ke vs. uesua ami jNasu,
The festivities incident to Christ
mas, held at the Chinese church
Tuesday night under the direction
of Mrs. Walsh, attracted a very
large audience-r-morc than the seat
ing capacity of the, church could
accommodate. A curtain separated
the audience from the elevated
platform on which the children of
the mission were ,to appear in
various roles. Behind the platform
was a Christmas tree, illuminated
by vari-colored incandescent lights.
On cither side were green branches,
glittering with tinsel.
The prcTgram Was opened with a
hymn, rendered by Chinese young
men. This was followed by Scrip
ture reading, then another song by
the male choir.
After some difficulty with the
lights owing to a burnt out fuse a
series of tableaux were showu
which excited the admiration and
applause of all. The tableaux were
given under the direction of Miss
Elvira Richardson, Chinese children
taking part.
The next piece was a Fairy
scene also under the direction of
Miss Richardson, It was carried
out in an admirable way and afford
en fine entertainment. After this
scene presents were distributed to
the childreu.
The first part of the Christmas
exercises by the Sunday School
scholars at the First Foreign
Church was given Sunday night.
People will go to hear the children,
no matter what the occasion. The
church, accordingly, was pat'ied
from auditorium to gallery. The
program was excellent irom oegiu
ning to end. The rendition of "The
Holy City" by Mrs. Ross, the reci
tation by Miss Hattie Hapai, and
the motion song by Miss Alice
Mumby were of the highest merit.
One of the most striking features
of the evening was the collecting of
gifts from the children of the For
eign Church Sunday School for the
boys and girls of Waiakea mission.
Big baskets were passed around and
were filled and running over with
offerings from the little folks.
These were among the many gifts
distributed at Waiakea mission
Monday night.
The program entire, Sunday
evening, follows:
Concert Recitation' 'Welcome."
Rccitatiou ami Song ... Little Folks in

Wednesday evening Christmas
exercises were held at 'the Haili
church. Notwithstanding it was
the fourth night this week of
Christmas festivity, a large throng
filled the church. The program
consisted chiefly of songs by the I
TteWUe of the Hilo d-
iiur Snlinnl olinir n.i.ktpil ill tlip
...& .. . . -
musical program.
An entertaining feature of the
evening was the appearance of Mr
and Mrs. Santa Clnus officiating in
the distribution of presents. The
tree was the prettiest of the week.
Its tall and graceful proportions
were enhanced iu beauty by scores
of colored lights. The boughs were
loaded down with presents which
were distributed to the Sunday
School children.
Kills Finn rroposcd
Washington, Dec. 9. Senator '"
Burton of Kansas was roughly v
handled in the Senate today, when
'he - tried to railroad through an
amendment to the immigration bilt,
admitting Chinese agricultural .
laborers into Hawaii. Senators
Bailey, Hoar, Mitchell, Bacon and,
Tillman, kept Burton busy for n
Itour, at the end of which time
Chairmau Penrose of the, immigra
tion Committee gave the amend
ment its quicius by moving that it
be tabled, which was done. Burton's
ouly ally was Seu'ator'Foraker, who, '
as chairman of the Committee on
Pacific Islands and Porto Rico, has
been informed of the hard times
prevalent in Hawaii and who was
ready to advocate the amendment
if indorsed by the sub-committee of ,
Senators that visited the islands
last fall. But Mitchell, chairman
of the sub-committee, stated posi
tively that the committee was not
agreed on the subject and that he
personally opposed it.
' Burton's amendment provided
that the Chinese might be admitted
for agricultural labor in sufficient
numbers to supply the demand,
and that they should be permitted
to enter, for the sole purpose of
doing agricultural work; that the
corporations in whose service the
Chinese were engaged should first
give a bond for their deportation to
Chiua in casq they 'deserted the
labor for which they were engaged.
It did not take long for the
Senators on both sides to flay
Burton. His amendment was
shown to be inconsistent with the
contract labor and Chinese exclu
sion laws. Hoar wanted to know
if Burton favored taking a man by
the naperof the neck and throwing
him out of the country whenever
he refused to do certain work.
Bailey suggested that slave days
were over. Bacon said the Chinese,
under the amendment, would be
bondmen aud slaves. Perkins said
the kernel of the whole matter was
that the sugar planters wanted
cheap Asiatic labor at the expense
of the American farmers growing
sugar and employing white labor.
Mitchell pointed out that the bulk
of the Asiatics in Hawaii were not
on the plantations at all, but iu
competition with whites and natives
in skilled labor. Bailey said the
amendment required the Chinese to
stick to the lowest menial labor,
with the pain of deportation if they
looked to higher things. Tillman
pitchforked in a few sarcastic com
ments on the amendment.
Burton sought to secure action
on his amendment introduced
earlier in the day, but Mitchell of
Oregon, of the Committee on Paci
fic Islands aud Porto Rico, inter-,
posed an objection on the ground
that his committee first should con
sider it. The amendment opened a
discussion of the Chinese question.
Burton declared that the Hawaiians
cannot make money because' the
Japanese huve raised the price of
labor higher than the traffic will
bear, and he added that they are
not as good citizens as the Chinese.
Tillman remarked that there may
be other parts of the United States
that might want labor, aud he did
not see "why we should discrimin
ate in favor of a few corporation
Pf own sugar plantations iu
I Foraker of Ohio, differed with
' him, and insisted that it was iti
1 tended to benefit all the people of
' Hawaii.
Burton said the Porto Ricans
taken to Hawaii proved failures,
but the Portuguese had done very
well. White men would not work
in the sun iu the Hawaiian climate.
