There is something exasperating to the man of intelligence in the blatant
claims of such a man as Wallach, but more so is the- way supposedly leading
3nen among the Hawaiians are taking up his cause, their sole excuse being
political expediency. Politics in Hawaii has been pretty low at times and the
political issues about as petty and idiotic as is possible, but never before have
lhe supposedly leading Hawaiians so prostituted their leadership as they are
doing at the present time, when, the struggle among them to do as much as
possible for "Wallach has degenerated into a scramble.
The strength of statesmanship is not shown in bending to the breeze of
public opinion, as some of the speakers before the Board of Health this week
seemed to think. One of the speakers quoted the old chestnut about the voice
of the people being the voice of God, while as a matter of fact the voice of
the people, just now, is the blatting of a herd of stampeded sheep. Thesej
politicians have not even the excuse of ignorance in the course that they have
adopted, but are urging on the stampeded people knowing all the time what
they are doing.
It seems to be all right now to get in and shout with the crowd, but,
unless something happens to stop the progress of events, the time will come
when the stampede will get out of hand, the politicians will be dumped and
the situation they have helped very much in making will result in their own
In this matter it even has the appearance that the Board of Health is
toing politics. It- has been repeatedly stated that the Board were prepared
to swallow themselves at their meeting last week and accept Wallach, the
proposition being that the petition of the Home Bulers was to be turned down,
then, that the Republicans were to make their grandstand play and the matter
aeopened and the Republican petition finally granted. The reason this was not
done, it is said, was because Dr. Wayson got the wrong tip and made his talk

somewhat longer than he had anticipated when he packed his suit case, being
' obliged to send to Honolulu for more clothes. His request came to Jack

To me it doesn't look on the square for the players of the St. Louis
laseball team to go hiking over to Japan after agreeing to play in the series
of games with the team that is being brought here from the Coast. It is not
at all settled, apparently, that the boys are to go to the Orient before Mike
Tisher brings his aggregation to the islands, but if it comes to a question of
staying home and meeting the Coast team or going to Japan the boys ought to
stay home. In the first place the games here have been arranged for some time,
the public has b?en fed dope on what is to be expected and tho fans have turned
cut to a lot of bum matches because they thought that the promoter of tho
Coast nine games needed the money and because they knew that the local
players needed the practise and they were willing to give them a hand while
they were getting it. In tho second place the Honolulu public have patronized
baseball well this summer and now, when there is a chance for the public to
see what baseball really is they deserve to have it. In addition, the Coast
papers have been boosting Hawaii through this trip of theall players and
are will get a cold deal if the best of our players leave here just as their players

entails a sacrifice on some of the players. Honolulu has dug down to send all

1 FTBST EDIFICE IN HAWAII
3 OF JESUS CHRIST OF
(From Monday's Advertiser.)
With simple but effective ceremonies
and services, the first church edifice
of the body of Christians known as
the Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ
of Latter Day Saints was dedicated
The church Is a frame structure on
the mauka side of King street opposite
the Catholic cemetery. It Is of the
pleasing ecclesiastical architecture of
which many examples may be seen
scattered through the rural regions of
the (Mississippi "Valley and the Alleghany
region. There is adaptation to
this climate, however, by an abundance
of windows to secure ventilation. The
entrance Is through a square vestibule
formed by a tower terminating in a
pleasing cupola. The pulpit platform,
with small rooms on either side, occupies
the mauka end of the church. The
platform Is raised higher than is usual
in most churches and is reached by
steps at the left. The interior of the
church is finished in natural wood. The
celling is vaulted and supported by
framed trusses. The pews are in dark
stained wood and exceedingly comfortable.
The pulpit -platform and the
organ were pleasingly ornamented with
ferns and great jardinieres of cut flowers,
carnations and asters.
The dedicatory services were at 11
o'clock. There was an audience that
practically filled the seating capacity
of the church, about two hundred. The
opening hymn was one by Lowell
Mason, whose recent death recalls the
high place he had in Christian
A quartet consisting of Mr. and
Mrs. Isaac Harbottle, Miss Pilkol and
Mr. Kahanamoku sang an anthem.
On the platform were President
Joseph Smith, eldest son of the
Prophet Joseph Smith, Elder F. M.
Sheehy, who with another has charge
of the missions of which this is one,
and Elder Gilbert J. Waller, who has
been in large degree the pillar and
support of the church in these Islands
for many years.
The formal acceptance of the church
was ymbollzed hy the presentation by
Elder Waller on behalf o the congregation
of the key of the church edifice
to President Smith, who accepted It
on behalf of the Bishop, and returned
it to Elder Waller for the use of the
The sermon by President Smith was
a simple, straightforward presentation
of the purpose of the church to be, to
present the truth to all men as It was
presented by Christ to his disciples and
those whom he sent, to be by them
presented to those who should follow
after, until all should have the opportunity
of hearing the gospel.
President Smitn Is a 'benignant figure,
gentle, kindly, yet not lacking
vigor nor strength. He is a tall, well
built man, erect In spite of his seventy-five
years, his gray beard softening
a face which a slightly aquiline nose
would otherwise make too severe. I

the venerable president commended It

Invocation dignified and gracious.
The confirmation was accompanied
with the laying on of hands, and In
this service President Smith was assisted
by Elder Sheehy, Elder Waller,
and Elder J. W. White of Kauai who
had come over for this service.
At the evening service, the sermon
was by Elder Sheehy. There will be
special services throughout the week,
Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday
evenings, at which President
Smith and Elder Sheehy will preach.
Following the opening hymn, prayer
and anthem. Elder Waller began the

of thanking, afforded our local branch
the desired opportunity of extending
to President Smith an Invitation to
come here and conduct the services
connected with Its dedication. There
had been some misgivings on our part
as to whether Elder Smith would un-
dertake at his period or life so long a
journey, but his presence here testifies
to the willingness with which he responded.
"We are pleased to welcome him In our
midst, feeling assured that his prominent
Identification with the work which
we have endeavored in the past to represent
here will obtain for him an interested
hearing, and knowing as we
do by reason of long and pleasant association
that his frank manner and
kindly disposition will win for him a
warm place in your hearts.
"We therefore bid him a hearty welcome
and trust that his visit may
open up to . him a vista of pleasant
associations and agreeable experiences
that shall add an Interesting chapter
to his long and eventful life.'
"We feel sure you will accord him
a patient and attentive hearing."
Then, turning to President Smith,
Elder Waller continued:
"Now, dear brother, as president of
the branch of the church here, I
take pleasure in turning over to you,

for the information of others, that
there have been expended in the purchase
of the lot, in Its Improvement of,
and In the erection of the building
about $7000, and that there Is no debt
upon the property."
Replying President Smith said:
"I return this key to you. Elder Waller,
to be used for the benefit of the
local congregation and I also trust that
from this pulpit and from out these
walls nothing but good shall come
good thoughts and good words and
that there shall be exemplified here

"I have long had the desire to visit
the Islands of the Sea and they have
long been within the circuit of my labor.
I am pleased that the opportunity

"There is a question which arises
from and exists within the great diversity
of religious thought. It Is Important,

movement, especially anything
considered new, or that has borne the
appellation of being new, that thoe
who inaugurate such a movement

slon, and so rar as possible, for human
determination. In teaching this, there
arises the question of what should be
the doctrine discussed from this pulpit
by those in whose Interest It has been
erected. Possibly I may be antrwered,
as I many times have been, that the
discussion of doctrine Is not profitable
that to discuss doctrine in the Christian
church has a species of latallty
to it, that It is introducing contrpversy,
controversy resulting in excitement,
contention and apparent separation.
This, we know, has been the history
of the churches from time Immemorial.
This Is the only answer, that If it
can be conceded that Jesus Christ has
so carelessly wrought in the mission
which His Father sent Him .upon, and
In the interests of which he called his
disciples, sov carelessly, that the preaching
of the doctrine of Jesus Christ Is
calculated to destroy Its own organization.
It Is time this event occurred
and that the character of the doctrines
of Jesus Christ, which He came to
teach, and for which He died, should
be well known everywhere."
'Reading from the Gospel by St. John,
President Smith continued:
"This from the 17th chapter of John's
Gospel the prayer of the Master for
His dlscrples, and also for those who
One of the11 first inquiries made by officers of the French cruiser Catinat
on their arrival here yesterday was whether Queen Liliuokalani was married
to the Tahitian Prince Salman yet. They seemed surprised when told that she
was not, and still more surprised when told that she had said she did not
intend to marry him. ,
They could not understand it. When they were in Tahiti it was the
general talk and expectation that he was to marry the Queen. -The Tahitiaas
themselves, those of rank, understood that the marriage was to take place.
The marriage was accepted as a fact soon to be.
"Salman comts of a very wealthy family," said one of the officers of
tho cruiser. "The family is of high rank and is connected by marriage with
the royal family. The wife of the last King was a member of his family.
The family own much land and have a number of residences in various parts
of the group and have a residence in Papeete.
"We were entertained elaborately and frequently during our stay in Tahiti,
and met all the members of the royal and noble families now living there, and
among them all it was understood and accepted as a fact that Prince Salman
was to marry the Queen. It will certainly cause surprise there when they
learn that he is not to marry her." ,
Copies of tho Advertiser of October 9, containing a republication of the
San Francisco Call article of October 1, in which Prince Salman, borne down
by the weight of his woe and the pain of his gout, tells how his suit was curtly
rejected by the cabled word "No," and not even signed by the Queen, but
by her secretary, were eagerly sought and read by the officers of the Catinat.

"The question, as I have said. In this j
religious movement. Is this: Is this
mission or Jesus jnnst, a
one? Was that to be the Intention o
God? Were all portions of this world
to be reached and to have declared to
them the Word of God by those sent
to continue His work until the end of
time? Was it those other portions also
that were to be sanctified by the Word
of God? Our Inquiries, our desires, and
our interests for all, declare these
ciuestions to be Just as vital now as

made by Him like this: 'My doctrine

He makes this statement In answer
to inquiries by those around
Him: "My doctrine Is not my
own, but his that sent me.
Christ has never called a man to misrepresent
Him but endowed each to
preach that which He had confided to
him. Christ came to teach man and to
discipline them in taking out from
themselves those evil and wrong things
with which man has always been afflicted,
and to teach them to secure
uprightness and justice among men,
which is in men, because of God's love
for them. And there has never been
anything accomplished by Instilling
fear In men. It Is not productive of
good results to teach by trying to
scare men. It Is not fear, but love,
that is constantly required In teaching.
