Even the most sanguine did not. be
lieve that there would be as large a
crowd present at the Opera House as
there was in attendance upon the grand
concert for the benefit of the Kalihi
and Moanalua churches on Saturday
night. At 8 o'clock, there was hardly
a seat left. The box on the right hand
side was occupied by Princess Kaiu-
lani and party and the one opposite by
Mrs. 8. B. Dole and party. The box
above Princess Kaiulani's was reserved
for the performers. Large delegations
of both the Kawaiahao Seminary and
Kamehanieha school girls, all dressed
in spotless white, were present in the
The program opened with an over
ture by the band. Next came a chorus
by the Kamehameha Glee Club and
then a very well done vocal duet, in
point of acting and singing, by Misses
Helen Desha and Lydia Aholo. The
audience was much disappointed when
the announcement was made that Paul
R. Isenberg was unable to sing. Wm.
! J. Coelho tooik his place. After a selec
tion hy the Kawaiahao Seminary girls,
Miss Kulamanu Ward gave her soprano
solo, entitled "Sancta Maria," with vio
lin obligato by Mrs. C. B. Cooper and
piano accompaniment by Miss Patch,
Miss Ward responded to a very hearty
encore and was the recipient of a
bouquet of beautiful red carnations.
The mandolin and guitar duet "II Tro
vatore" by .Messrs. Hennessey and
Jackson, was one of the very best
numbers on the program. Certainly the
young musicians nanuie tneir instru
ments in a masterly fashion. There
was immense applause when the Ka
waihaoi club sang "Lei no Kaiulani."
When the three singers appeared on
the stage, they bowed gracefully to
Princess Kaiulani, then to the audience
and began their song. They responded
to an encore.
After a short intermission came the
second part beginning with another
overture by the band. Four native
singers presented a solo and chorus
and were called hack twice. CUiss Ka-
maiopili and John Bright sang a tle-
ightful duet in English and then res
ponded to an encore with a Hawaiian
selection. The .Kawaiahao Seminary
girls gave two selections after which
Jas. W. L. McGuire sang a solo. He
responded to an encore, bringing three
native singers along with him to join
in the chorus. A selection by the Ka
mehameha girls was heartily encored.
They responded by singing "The Owl
and the Pussy Cat," at the end of this,
they joined hands and with the words
'They danced by the 'light of the moon
rippled gracefull3r across and back on
the stage. This last touch took so well
hat the girls were encored again.
Miss Rosina 'Shaw's solos were much
enjoyed. The quality of Miss Shaw's
voice is most sweet and she has a
simple way of singing that at ence
captures her audience. Then too her
enunciation is clear which is a most
satisfactory point. Another m'andolin
and guitar selection by JMessrs. Hen
nessey and Jackson, a selection by the
Kawaihau club, "Hawaii Ponoi," and
he concert was at an end.
It is estimated that close upon 900
people were present at the concert so
hat the receipts for the two churches
witt be between ?i00 and $buu.

In response to the invitation ol Brit
ish CommiioiHT and Consul General
Kenny, the following gentlcm?:i met
at Mr. Kenny's home at Palama last
Saturday afternoon: Dr. 11. V. Mur
ray, Judge Stanley, Rev. J. F. Lane, H.
L. Herbert, A. Sr. M. Mackintosh, R. A.
Jordan, Chris Willis, J. Harvey, A.
Piianaia, J. Catton and Viggo Jacobsen.
A very good and level pitch had been
prepared on the turf at the rear of the
premises, where excellent practice was
indulged in upon a single wicket with
netting, each player being given ex
actly seven minutes batting exercise.
All were most enthusiastic, some in
good form, and even Barrett, the half
white retainer of the late Mr. Hawes,
now in the service of his successor, was
given his turn and showed that he had
"caught on" to a trick or two.
A very sociable and pleasant time
was had and after play, tea and other
liquid refreshments with a light colla
tion, was served "al fresco." The Com
missioner extended another general in
vitation for Wednesday afternoon next,
and everybody came away voting him
a most delightful and genial host.
Mr. Kenny deserves the warmest
thanks of the club members for his
liberality in furnishing them with so
good a practice ground, the more that
they are now threatened with the loss
of the further use of the old baseball
grounds. This sport is dear to the
heart of the Anglo-Saxon in general
and to that of the Britisher in parti
cular, and while such friends remain,
it will not be allowed to die out.
"A word to the wise is sufficient" and
a word from the wise should be suffi
cient, but you ask, who are the wise?
Those who know. The oft repeated ex
perience of trustworthy persons may
be taken for knowledge. Mr. W. M.
Terry says Chamberlain's Cough Rem
edy gives better satisfaction than any
other in the market. He has been in
the drug business at Elkton, Ky., for
12years;has sold hundreds of bottles of
this remedy and nearly all other cough
medicines manufactured, which shows
conclusively that Chamberlain's is the
most satisfactory to the people, and la
the best. For sale by all druggists and
dealers. Benson, Smith & Company,

the sterling qualities of their late
brother Mason, and expressing in feel
ing and eloquent terms, their sorrow at
Viggo Jacobsen has prepared a beau
tifully engrossed copy of the letter, sur
rounded by a very chaste and effective
border in black and white of a conven
tional lily design. The Masonic sym

and resurrection have not been forgotten.
The Next Regatta.
The next boat races will be on July
4th. There will be at least two clubs,
the Myrtles and Healanis, entered in
these. The Leilanis may come in, but
that is doubtful. There will be a six
oared sliding seat and a four-oared
shell race. The boys are already get
ting; in trim.
Of course the Myrtles will not row in
their new shell. It is of a class su
perior to any here and would not be
allowed. However, there is something
besides this to stop its use. The clubs
have an agreement for two years yet,
to row in none but their Australian

Mr. J. G. Spencer,
Pacific Hardware Co.,
Dear Sir: The Secretary Disc Plow I pur
chased from you is giving us satisfaction. We
are using it to plow under a crop of lupins. They
are three feet high and very thick. Your plow
turns them completely under, at the same time
plowing the land fourteen inches deep.
I feel satisfied that with this plow the draft
for the same quantity and depth of work is as
6 to 8. That is, with the old plow, to do the same
work, it takes 8 good mules; with your plow it
takes only 6, and they are less tired at night.
Please send me another plow by first schooner
leaving for this.
You are at liberty to use this in any way you
may see fit. Yours truly,
To buy Harness.
