D. Chase Leaves Hawaii for 12 Months. Has Been a Prominent and Ener getic Business Man Here Nearly Five Years. Charles D. Chase leaves by the Oceanic S. S. Zealandia for the States and will be away from the Islands at least a year. He has sold hs home aLd the adjoining fine lot and some other pieces of property to W. "Wolters of Hackfeld & Co. Ltd. The business which Mr. Chase established and built up here goes over to the Hawaiian Safe Deposit and Investment Com pany for a handsome consideration. Mr. Chase retains some Honolulu real estate that he believes will increase in value month by month. This promi nent and active business man is im pelled to go away from the Islands on account of the serious illness of his wife, who is now in a hospital at San Francisco. So soon as Mrs. Chase is able to travel she will be taken to the mountains by her husband. Charles D. Chase, who had been Writer with Admiral Brown, U. S. N now retired, came ashore here from the flagship Philadelphia nearly five years ago to make Honolulu his home. He opened up about three years ago the office in the Safe Deposit Building on Fort street and at once became a prominent figure in the real estate and agency business. He was appointed general passenger agent for the two routes to the Volcano and established a connection with various Pacific steamship companies. Perhaps more than any other man, Mr. Chase has increased tourist travel to the Islands. He has been an indefatigable worker in this field, sending letters and liter ature to all parts of the world and making trips to the States for the pur pose of advertising and getting up ex cursions. Mr. Chase has been almost from the first days of putting out his signs, recognized as one of the rising young business men of the town. He has identified himself with every pro gressive movement and in his depart ure a distinct loss to business circles is felt. He may return at the end of a year with renewed energy. Personally Mr. Chase has made himself popular by his uniform courtesy to all with whom he came in contact. He has assisted in the work of the Y. M. C. A. in behalf of young strangers and is a member of Mystic Lodge, No. 2, Knights of Pythias and of Pacific Lodge, No. 822, Free Masons. Mrs. Chase is a beutiful and accomplished woman who has many warm friends here. The couple will have with them in their travels the best wishes of about everyone in Honolulu. Children's Day. Beginning at 9:5a Sunday morning there was a Children's Day service in Central Union Church conducted by the pastor, Rev. D. P. Birnie. There were in attendance nearly 500 children, besides relatives and friends of the lit tle ones. Two children were baptised. The sight with the large auditorium of the church completely filled with chil dren was an inspiring one. The address by the pastor was a brief one and of a nature understood by the children. This was the program: Opening Hymn (No. 301) School Prayer Superintendent 3rd Psalm School Quartette Senior Department Recitation "Children's Day," Song Infant Class Address Pastor Violin Solo Seymour Hall Recitation "Room in the Fold of Jesus."

The specialist journeyed to the Garden Isle in answer to the summons of those who complain that the Japanese beetle is doing great harm to the roses and to nearly all leafy vegetation. All of the haole settlers, many of the native and all of the plantation and ranch peole volunteered readily to do all in their power by way of assistance in the at tack on the beetle. Several thousands of the bugs were gathered, inoculated with the death fungus and liberated again. Trofessor Koebele is confident that at once the numbers will decrease to a marked extent. The pest had ob tained a big headway on Kauai. rather AL.tth in 1 ariicst. The man on the Island of Hawaii who is waging Litter, relentless and ef fective war on the Japanese beetle is Father Matthias of the Roman Catho lic Mission. The reverend father has 40 or 50 boys at his command and en gages all of them in gathering beetles to be inoculated. The work is going on under a wholesole plan. Father Matthias writes to Honolulu that while much is being done and the mark of progress may be seen, that the task is a tremendous one. The beetles exist by the hundreds of thousands and in the work of destruction are measured by the gallon. PERSONAL MENTION. G. B. Davis, a sightseer, recently a visitor to the islands, was heard to remark that in all his travels he had never been groomed in as satisfactory rmer as at the Criterion uarDer Shop. Individual cups for rent for a Magistrate it Ilai.alei. After consideration for some weeks the Executive has voted to have Judge J. Kakina commissioned as District Magistrate at Hanalei, Kauai. The na tive who had held the post for about two years died quite suddenly lately. Judge Kakina has had considerable experience on the bench in the lower Court and is said to be a man of ability both as an attorney and in judicial capacity. He will enter upon the du- ties of his office at once. This is an Executive appointment, the naming of the man resting entirely with Presi dent Dole. WASHINGTON, April 28.
