Au Interesting Account from tlie Pen r F. W. Damon . In the annual report of Chinese Mis sion work Mr. F. AY. Damon furnishes the following interesting account of the heathenism about us: One does not need to go to China to study Chinese heathenism, for here on our Islands, and especially in Honolulu, is offered abund ant material for such investigation. It will scarcely be possible for us here to go into a detailed account of the religious belief of. the Chinese, which is a singu larly complex and intricate subject. They are all more or less followers of three great systems of belief, the Bud dhistic, Taoistic and Confucian. It is, however, stated by the Rev. B. C. Henry, in his interesting work on Southern Chi na, entitled " The Cross and the Dragon," " In the worship of the deceased ances tors is found the real religion of the Chi nese. It antedates all others and has come down from the most ancient times. The people are chained to the dead. They are kept all their lifetime in fear, not of death but of the dead. As to its theory, it is believed that each person has three souls, which separate at death ; one enters the tablet, one remains with the body in the grave, while the other is arrested and imprisoned in the other world. They continue in conscious ex istence and their happiness or misery de pends upon the favorable location of the grave and upon the sacrifices of the liv ing.. The dead being invisible, all things intended for their use must be ren dered invisible by burning except food, whose flavor, as it arises, regales them. They believe it is in the power of these spirits to return to the abodes of the liv ing, and reward and punish them for their faithfulness or neglect in offering the necessary sacrifice. The worship of fered is essentially the same as that of fered before the idols. It consists in burning incense, candles and gilt paper, in sacrifices of food and other things and in prostrations." There are in Hono lulu three representative Idol Temples, with an immense number of shrines in private homes and stores. The largest of these temples is specially dedicated to the God, "How-Wong," a deity main ly worshipped by the Chinese coming from the district of Heang Shan, the ma jority perhaps of our Chinese people be ing from this region. This temple is quite picturesquely situated on the river bank at the foot of Beretania street. It is most lavishly ornamented with gilding and most gorgeous coloring. In the main shrine is a carved figure of "How-AVong," on either side are figures 'of two other gods, Kwan Tai and the Chinese God of Medicine, to whom peti tions are offered in case of sickness. Another temple, erected since the tire last year, is situated a little off King street and is dedicated to "Kwun Yam," the Goddess of Mercy of Buddhism. She is represented seated on the opened petals of vthe Lotus and occupies the most prominent position in the temple. Not far away is another temple dedicated specially to "Kwan Tai," the God of War. In this temple are also idols rep resenting Tien-How, the " Queen of Heaven," and the "God of Medicine." Kwan-Tai is more worshipped on our islands by the Chinese than any other god. His picture in a shrine is found in many stores, on the rice plantations, and in the houses of the secret societies. He was a famous general, who lived hundreds of years ago in China, and since his canonization has become a most popular divinity. In most repre sentations he is seen attended by his son and servant. The following account of Chinese idolatry will give the reader an idea of the way in which the worship in the temples, in our midst, is carried on: "The worshipper procures his of fering and the services of an assistant from the temple-keeper. This assistant rings the large bell or beats upon the drum to arouse the gods, while the worshipper kneels before the table upon which he has placed his offerings of tea, wine, rice, fruit and fowl. With prostrations and incantations he devotes the essence of this food to the gods, then goes to the shrine upon which the idol reposes and seeks the aid of the divin ing blocks. These two pieces of wood are thrown down ui;tii they fall, one with its oval and one with its flat side to the floor, which is considered a good omen. Then the sacred jar of bamboo splints, each of which is numbered to correspond with' the temple-keeper's book of prayers, is shaken until one of the splints fall to the floor. Xhe assist ant 'marks the number with a brush pen. The number is handed to the temple keeper, who gives the answer according to the number in his book. The paper money is lighted from the incense sticks on the shrine, then carried outside and placed in the brick or metal crematory, and as it burns the idol receives its es sence. Meantime, the assistant gathers together the food, to be taken home for a feast for the friends." Through the length and breadth of-this land are to be found evidences of heathenism. Some times it manifests itself in the form of a few lighted tapers or incense sticks, or the lamp lit at morning before the shrine, or out in the open fields, where a few characters tell those who pass by to worship the divinity "as if there pres ent." With many a residence in foreign lands tends to weaken the hold of old superstitions, but, others cling most tenaciously to early beliefs. Heroic Deed. Though Captain Kaluhikai, Master of the schooner Ke Au Hou, belonging to the Pacific Navigation Co., performed a heroic deed last Saturday night, he did not tell of it until yesterday afternoon, when it leaked out in a casual way. The schooner was in the channel, on her way from Hawaii to this port. It was about 9 o'clock p. m., when one of the crew, Geo. Kapu, formerly a Kaimiloa boy, fell overboard. The Captain, who is an expert swimmer, divested himself of his clothes, and was over in an in stant after the boy. The lad was caught and held up. The schooner lost the exact position of the persons in the water, but after tacking about for three hours and a half, got a little to the lee ward of the Captain and boy, and heard their calls. When taken aboard they were pretty nearly exhausted, as might be supposed. A gentleman who ad mires such noble deeds is exerting him self to have Captain Kaluhikai presented with a medal. Bulletin. Death of Mr. J. C. Kirkuooi!. By the steamer W. G. Hall which arrived yesterday afternoon, came the news of the death of Mr. John Charles Kirkwood, storekeeper, at Lahaina, Maui, which took place Saturday, Octo ber 2?d. He came from Tasmania to the islands. The deceased was one of the oldest residents of Lahaina and well respected by all classes of the com munity. He was very generous and frequently assisted any natives or for eigners who were in want. He died intestate and pending the appointment of an administrator the deputy sheriff has taken charge of the property, which is considerable. The funeral took place on Sunday from the Anglican Church of which he was a devoted member, and was largely attended. The Rev. W. H. Barnes conducted the services. Tbe deceased was about fifty-six years of age. Police court. BEFORE POLICE JUSTICE DAYTON. Tuesday, Oct. 25th. Paul Gade, for assault and battery on D. F. Sanford, was fined $30 and costs. Four cases of drunkenness were dealt with in the usual way Lakalia Besenaba pleaded not guilty to a charge of assault and battery on Caroline Schiefer. The case arose out of a dispute about some cocoanuts which complainant had sent a boy up a tree to take and which defendant claimed. The latter was reprimanded and discharged. Caroline Schiefer was ,charged with using obscene language to the defendant in the last case and pleaded not guilty. Reprimanded and discharged. Kula, on remand, selling or disposing of spiritous liquor without a license. Nolle pros, requested and defendant dis charged. Kalawalu, on remand, charged with breaking into Kraft's store.
