Tbe New Year was given a royal re
ception by Honolulu residents.
Tbe festivities and merriment be
gan early Monday evening and did not
cease till a late hour last evening.
There were -weddings and New Year
picnic parties galore, while many of
the native families entertained at the
usual elaborate luaus. "
During the morning and late after
noon yesterday a good many gentle
men revived the custom of New Year
calls. There was a general expression
among many of the ladles of the city
favoring tbe revival of this custom,
-which has of late years fallen into
a sort of innocuous desuetude.
The principal reception of the after
noon was at President Dole's, from 3
to 5. The president marked with
treasure the cosmopolitan character
of those who called, it being a thoro
ughly representative gathering. All
members of the diplomatic and consu
lar corns were present and wished
the chief magistrate and Mrs. Dole
mtnv hanDV returns of the day. The
band was stationed on tbe lawn, and
famished an excellent programme.

Eight o'clock found a very large
and decidedly "swell" audience
gathered under tbe large lanai, in
front of a red curtain that bid from
view the place where a play called
'The Snowball" was to be acted.
An orchestra of native boys sta
tioned back of the audience furnished
delightful music during the evening.
After a selection by tbe orchestra.
the curtains were drawn aside and the
feature of the evening was soon in
"The Snowball" is a very spirited
and decidedly amusing play in three
acts, and affords a great opportunity
for good acting. It is the story of the
family troubles of ono of the "boys,"
who tries to get the best of his wife
and fails most miserably succeeding
once, only to become plunged deeper
and deeper into disgrace by the clever
maneuvers or nis scheming wife.
The parts of Felix Featherstone.
who is in hard luck, and Mrs. Feath
erstone, who never for an instant ac
knowledges herself beaten by her hus
band, were played respectively by Mr.
J. F. Brown and Mrs. W.W. Dlmond.
Between these two there is a constant
fire of scathing words, and only in the
end, after Felix throws himself at the
feet of his wife, does the battle cease.
Mr. Brown was exceedingly funny in
his "part, causing numerous ripples of
laughter. His troubles gathered as
he went so that he resembled a
"Snowball" in his make-up. Mrs.
Dlmond had a very difficult part and
carried it through in a very pleasing

twinkles of the eye and frequent ex
pressive shrugs of tbe shoulders.
Penelope, the maid in Felix's home,
was Diaved by Mrs. E. D. Tenney.
Her part was a very difficult one, but
she succeeded admirably in the im
personation of it. She skipped about
and did the bidding her master and
mistress : she showed the usual curi

all the money she could, and finally,
when she saw things were all coming

3uccerur I'arty at Independence Hall-
Artiatlc Decoration and An Elab
orate P upper.
The Lei IJima boys gave the old
year a grand good sendoffat their so
cial at Independence Hall New Year's
Eve. The event was a success in
Great credit is especially due the
lady friends of tbe club for the decora
tions, which were artistic and beauti
ful. Draping the entrance were two
Hawaiian flags. The front of the or
chestra stand was covered with a large
national flag, while above the musi
cians 'were the words "Lei Hi m se
arched in yellow letters, with white
background. The colors of bunting
were draped from the center of the
hall to the four corners. The center
piece was a large basket covered with
yellow and white flowers. Over the
door to the dressing room the Hawa
iian flag, with yellow and white bunt
ing, were draped, caught up in artistic
arches with bunches of ferns and
sprigs of green. Quantities of ferns
and palms covered the pillars, forming
arches of green all about the hall.
By 9 o'clock the hall was crowded,
and fully 100 couples were on the floor
when the light strains of the Hawa
iian Quintette club were heard for the
opening dance. The officers and com
mittees and the majority of the mem
bers were in full dress. The commit
tees wore very neat badges of white
and yellow silk ribbons, with gold
tassels and trimmings. At 12 o'clock
there were horns tooting and happy
congratulations, after which every
body repaired to the spacious dining
room, where a sumptuous repast was
laid out for the merry dancers.
The dancing was kept up till long
after 1 o'clock. Taken as a whole, it
was one of the most successful and or
derly affairs of the season, and the
members of the club have reason to
congratulate themselves. The club
was started last May by twenty-five
enthusiastic young men, who desired
to dispel tbe dry monotony of Ho
nolulu dullness. Since Independence
Park was built it required more than
twenty-five members to meet the nec
essary expenses at a nominal rate, and
in October the ciud was reorganized,
and now has over sixty members.
Although the name may not be a con
spicuous one, its members comprise
most of tbe young society gentlemen
of this city.
Among the guests present were Mr.
and Mrs. J. N. Wright, Mr. and Mrs.
F. Brown, Mr. and Mrs. D. Dayton,
Mr. and Mrs. Cunba, Mr. and Mrs. J.
