1AH,Y PACIFIC COMMERCIAL. ADVERTISER, MAY 20. 1893.
WOMAN'S BOARD. ANNUAL MEETING HELD IN CENTB1L UNION CHURCH. Blw b Ter--ltirr by the Pieldeiit on Hwlln Work. The annual meeting of the woman's board, which was held yesterday in the Central Union church, was exceedingly interesting from beginning to end. Meeting at 10 o'clock and not closing till after 2 o'clock, one might fancy the time would seem long, but it did not ; no one showed sign of weari ness. The meeting was opened with the usual devotional exercises. Mrs. Hyde, presiding, read a passage of Scripture, and in a few earnest and appropriate words, gave as a motto for the coming year, the text : "Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus," emphasizing the thought that the value of the work accomplished was manifested by the spirit actuating it, as witness in the case of the widow's mite. After prayer by Mrs. Cooke, our honored vice-president, the reading of reports began. There were re ports from the secretaries, and from the various auxiliaries, all fall of interest, and the treasurer's report was a revelation. This year began as a year of financial depression, so in making appropriations only 1100 was ap propriated, and ytt the receipts for the past year were $1055.16, the disbursements $1376.07, and there remains in the treasury $279.09. In spite of hard times, the Indies have come bravely forward with special contribution, chiefly for kindergarten work among the Ha waiians, Portuguese and Chinese. The funds of the women's board are not all sent away to "Borioboo lagha," or to Micronesia even. "The heathen at our doors" aie not overlooked. Mrs. Emery has taken Christian cheer into the homes of the Chinese, and the foot-bound women and girls are happier for her loving ministry. Mrs. Soare3 is a blessing to the Portuguese women and children, and the various superintendents of departments have done faithful service. Valuable papers have been read from time to time during the year, some having been interesting con tributions to Hawaiian history. At noon lunch was served, and a number of gentlemen res ponded to the invitation given to those interested in the work of the ladies to come in and take lunch. The meeting was well attended throughout the day. At least 150 ladies must have been present dur ing the session. An attempt to count at lunch time was something like counting chickens, there was such a coming and going and such a cheery moving to and fro. After lunch came the election of officers, the president's address, which the ladies voted to publish in full immediately, and brief ad dresses from a few of the invited guests. The officers for the new year were the same as last year, except that Mrs. A. B. Lyons takes the place of Mrs! McCully as foreign corresponding secretary, and Mrs. E. A. Jones, as president of the gleaners, is an honorary vice-president of the older society. Mrs. Hyde is president. Mis3 Chamber lain, as vice-president, will act dur ing her absence in America. Mrs. S.E. Bishop is still the faithful recording secretary, and Mrs. Dil lingham the equally faithful trea surer. The monthly meetings are held from 2 :30 till 4 p.m., on the first Tuesday of each month, and though they are very well attended there is room for more, and there must be many more ladies in town to whom they would be enjoyable. In behalf of the woman's board a most cordial invitation is extended to all ladies either, resident or visit ing, to attend these meetings. PRESIDENT'S ADDRE33 OX HAWAIIAN WORK, BY MRS. C. X. HYDE. To those of U9 who are interested in missionary work for Hawaiian?, the recent revolution has had more than a political significance. We, who with clear vision can fore mtt f ho fnfnrp vhn know the obiects desired by the lead era of this move- ment, who are certain inai me ulti mate result can only te the best good of all concerned, can wait with pa tience lor the mil million oi ouruopes. .None the less are our deepest ym pathien called forth as we see the clouds and darkDesa around the path way of the poor Hawaiians, perplexed and irritated by the falsehoods and delusions of those who wish to mis lead them. But the lied sea and the wilderness were stages in the progress of the people of God from Kjrvpt, with its idolatries and sensualities, to the hig'aer altitudes and olive-crowned summits of the promised land of Canaan. The special work that in the provi dence of God lias been laid upon us this year has been the manifestation of such personal interest and loving sympathy as shall retain for those who are the true and tried friends of the Hawaiian people their confidence and affection in the mid3t of changes that seem to so many of them only ruinous and fatal. Undoubtedly a feeling of unrest and disquiet disturbed the churches at first, very much as the fall of a tree would alarm a flock of sheep. But with the maintenance of pood govern ment aud orderly industries the firt feeling rf nlarra has passed away, aud the congregations in the churches are begmniug to return in their usu.il numbers to the regular services of the Sibbatb. The tuunts of the X. l M. I. who have been recently employed to dis tribute the dally newspaper (the Kuo koa) at first were thunued and derided by those who thought that the Ha waiian monarchy was the foundation of Hawaiian nationality. Now tbey are welcomed most cordially, and the debating societies, so popular among Hawaiians, are discussing the prob able benetit3 of annexation. No personal ill-will has been mani fested, except perhaps in Kaumaka pill church, where the well known sentiments of the pastor in opposition to all schemes of wickedness have brought out and concentrated upon bim the spiteful opposition of those who had identified themselves with the worst elements of Hawaiian char acter and customs, under the idea of bringing to the front that which was distinctively Hawaiian. Yet this feeling of opposition origin ated before the memorab'e days of January, and has only beeu intensi fied by the immediate present results of tbe'ehange In the government. The political disturbance has made no material change in the board ins schools, and any loss of scholars on that account is so small as to be hardly worth mentioning. Many of our ladies, individually support from one to five girls in these schools. The financial straits which were so bar rassing at the beginning of the year, and seemed to threaten even the con tinuance of the schools on a mission ary basis, have been happily averted by large douations from one who at this time has shown himself more than ever a true benefactor of the Hawaiian people. The board of edu cation has also dealt so liberally with the schools that, with the aid received in accordance with the appropriation made by the legislature, needed re pairs and improvements can now be made. The many and frequent change in the corps of teachers in these schools give occasion for great anxiety to those who have the general man agement of them for a certain degree of acquaintance with the character is ics of Hawaii ns is needful for the accomplishment of the best work in the instruction and training of the young. The schools have done much for themselves in the way of exhibitions. From everyone the report is uniformly in terms of highest praise. Yet, at the entertainments given by Kawaia hao, which could hardly be excelled by scholars of any race, in any com munity, there was a noticeable ab sence of Hawaiians in the make-up of the audiences. To the regret of ad interested in the advancement of Ha waiian girls, the resignation of the matron and sewing teacher, and the lack of funds, necessitated the closing up of the girls' industrial home, under the management of the Cousins' so ciety, after two years of successful operation. A missionary spirit has been kept up in Kawaiahao seminary by the monthly meetings of the Lima Kokua (Helping Hand Society), under the direction of Mrs. L. B. Coan. This society is an auxiliary of our board and gives generously to various de partments or christian worK. The absence of the consecrated ele ment, which went out from the insti tute last year to the Gilbert Islands mission, has been noticeably lent in the work of the year. But the r. ports that have come from the field, on the return of the Morning fatar in regard to the promising indications of usefulness in the labors of the new missionaries, and has been some compensation for the loss sustained. Kev. Mr. itinera ana wixe, wno nave been employed in home work for the last two years, on account of her health, expect to return to Apaian by the next trip of the Star. As a gen er 1 thing, the work of these partially educated Hawaiian missionaries is ef fective among the lower races to whose service they have consecrated themselves. The number of students has been less than ever before, and a larger pro portion of these than ever have been unmarried. Every woman, however, that came into the afternoon instruc tion for the wives of students brought in a child, and all these were of about the e'ime age. There have been an unusual num ber of depressing incidents during the . j i year, uue oaoy uiea ana one oi me women also, in oom cases irom me sudden development of unsuspected brain trouble, and one of the students is now at the hospital. Though the condition of the school for the present year has not been encouraging, yet the prospects for the next year are that the number of students wiil be largely Increased and all of the new ones so well versed in English that hereafter some of the instruction must be given in that language, and a rad Icalchange in the management of the school will be effected. Our board has this year inaugurated a new work, and holds itself respon sible for the support of a system of free kindergaten schools for children under school age. The Hawaiian kin dergarten was opened In Queen Emma hall, February 1st, and has reached the limits of its accommodations forty pupils. The educational work is not limited, however, to the children. The lessons of neatness, order and courtesy are equally effective upon the parents and spectators who gather every afternoon around the doors and windows, hour after hour. The Inspiration of this work cam largely through Mr. F. W. Damon, whose hopeful spirit in regard to it gave us the courage to undertake it almost solely as a work of faith. Miss Mary Green, our special mis sionary in Hawaiian work, in her monthly reports has given us glimp ses Into Hawaiian homes. And we feel sure that her ready sympathy and kindly explanations have had a softening and harmonizing influence. Mrs. Dillingham might well stand as a representative missionary, so potent for good has been her influ ence in Kaumakapili church through all these political disturbances. The Kanmkauili Sunday school of which she is the superintendent, has main tained its usual number of scholars and a good spirit has been man fested. Ho too the Hui Humubumu.or Native Women's f-jewlng Society, under the charge of Mrs. Dillingham and her faithful assistants, Mrs. Severance. Mrs. Wm. Foster, Miss Judd and other ladies, has been steadily main tained. The hate and fans made by the native women find a ready sale among the tourists whom the per sonal infiuence of these ladles brings to the meetings. Few realize the self-sacrificing spirit shown by these ladies, who spend the whole morning every Friday in this fatiguing work of inspiring and maintaining the en thusiasm of these Hawaiian women. All honor to their fidelity. Another Influence for good among the Ha waiians is the prayer meeting for women at Kawaiahao church, so per sistently maintained by Mrs. liice, Mrs Coney and other ludies every Fri dav afternoon. There have been several daths among the ministers of the Molokai leper settlement. Noticeably that of alwaiole, pastor of the church; and I-auh.tla, one of the first students of the institute. The renewal of heathenish prac tices among the Hawaiians, is not so much a revival of superstitious be lief, as it is the endeavor to maintain Hawaiian practices and customs. But that there is - a higher standard among the leading members of the churches is evident from the fact that two Hawaiian preachers have re cently been deposed from, the minis try, on charges duly substantiated by a nearly uuanimous vote. I wish I could impress upon the members of this board theluty of special thought fuluess aud effort for the Hawaiian people. While we withhold not from any nationality any gift or any ser vice that may be effective for their spiritual welfare, we mu3t not target, we cannot forget, the paramount duty of effort and service for the people of the laud. Those who by their kindly welcome have made our home in these sunny isles so free from anxiety and forebodings, should receive from us only such manifestations of kindly forbearance . with inherited weak nesses, and such just appreciation of their many lovable qualities as shall make the social atmosphere of this community as pleasant and attractive as the uuequaled charm or its genial climate.
