FOURTEEN AT THE BOARD Some Notable Guests A Number of Addresses Made Toasts and Responses. Fourteen guests sat at the round table in the large private supper room of the Hawaiian hotel on Saturday ev ening for the farewell dinner given by Charles D. Chase. It has been men tioned that Mr. Chase, on account of the illness of his wife, leaves for the Coast this week to be away from the Islands at least a year. Mr. Chase has disposed pf his business and consider able of his property here and it is pos sible that for the reason indicated he will establish himself in the land of his birth. For about four years Mr. Chase has been one of the active business men and citizens of this place. He came to .Honolulu an entire stranger. It may fairly and without flattery be said that by his own efforts alone he has attained an enviable position in the community, gaining the confidence and esteem of those with who he did business and winning many genuine friends. Mr. Chase is a young man yet and those who know him predict and wish sincerely for him a thorough suc cess in life. Were Mr. Chase not so .well balanced a man there would be fear of perhaps bad effect from the compliments showered upon him at the dinner. Those at the board were: President Dole, Minister Cooper, De puty Attorney General E. P. Dole, W. N. Armstrong, E. R. Adams, John Phillips, A. V. Gear, W. G. Ashley, Dr. C. B. Wood, G. A. Davis, J. II. Fisher, li. t . Diinngnam, t ranK l,. Jtioogs, ma. Towse. " The dinner was the best that the hotel could provide under- the experi enced direction of the host. The first course was at 7 p. m. and the last two hours later. Then came the cigars and a number of impromptu addresses. The table decorations included red carna tions and ferns, with shaded candles. E. P. Dole, between whom and Mr: Chase there has grown a strong attach ment, spoke of the genuine wealth in real friendship and paid a feeling per sonal tribute to the host. Mr. Dole was strongly eloquent and intensely earnest. Mr. Chase was deeply touch ed and could respond in only a few words acknowledging the many kind nesses extended to him during his life in the Islands. The next toast was to the President of the Republic and was offered by Mr. Armstrong. The reply was from Min ister Cooper, who alluded pleasantly to Mr. Chase and gracefully dwelt upon the beauty of real regard springing up between men in the rush of life.. Sisters, Sweethearts and Wives Mr. Adams. I The American Army and Navy Dr. C. B. Wood. Mr. Phillips in a happy vein touched upon "State secrets," past and present, and spoke of the Hawaiian careers of Mr. Chase and a number of others at the table. Mr. Phillips had at the be ginning given the "Bobby Burns Bless ing" and again later, with Mr. Chase, paid respects to the unorthodox mis sionary at the table. The "unorthodox missionary," Mr. Armstrong, was fully imbued with the sentiments of the evening and gave amongst other revelations, the reason of the host's failure to get the 33d de gree in the original missionary lodge. This was because Mr. Chase, even wrhen given many lessons by the speaker, was still unable to sing cor rectnly "From Greenlands Icy Moun tains." Mr. Armstrong, commenting on the difficulty sometimes experienced by strangers in obtaining a foothold in a new country, told of the experi ence of his parents and others as Gos pel pioneers in the Gilbert Islands. "Blest be the Tie that Binds" was suggested as a proper sentiment for a response by Mr. Dillingham. That gentleman said he would refrain from talking railroad. He wished to offer commendation to Mr. Chase, after watching the comings and going of men here for many years. He had found Mr. Chase a worthy man in ev- ! ery way and believed him to be a true ! one of capacity. j Mr. Davis, being called upon, had i the originality to perpetrate a new i plumber joke. He said that the first I queer country was when he had heard I a local plumber referred to as "Honest John." Mr. Davis spoke in choice sen tences of friendships and its high value. Col. J. H. Fisher, commander of the First Regiment, answered for the Na- i tional Guard of Hawaii. His state i nif-nt that it would le ready to enter ; the services of Uncle Sam if needed, I was applauded. Dr. C. B. Wood was neat in apropos ; remarks, telling of the hospitality of j these shores and toasting "Old Ha j waii." W. Ci. Ashley gave some amus ! ing anecdotes and there was response ; for "The Press." ! President Dole was the last speaker j and was graceful and impressive in his ' expressions, offering to Mr. Chase the warmest aloha on behalf of all. Then followed the hand shakings. There was music throughout the dinner from a quintette club. More Lectures. Miss McDonald has been requested to give a short course of lectures on literature for teachers and others who cannot attend the regular Friday morning course. This class will be or ganized this afternoon at 3:30 o'clock at Mrs. Philip Dodge's. All interested are urged to be present today to hear the first of two lectures on the poet Wordsworth. A YEARS WORK. Stranger's Friend Society Holds Its Annual Meeting. The 4Gth annual business meeting of teh Stranger's Friend Society was held Thursday, May 12th. The reports given of the work of the society and its progress during the year showec: unusual and numerous benefits be stowed. Looking back over the records of past years not since the foundation of this society had there been in a single year, so large and efficient a work ac complished. At the beginning of the year in the early part of May, the outlook for continuing the work seemed paved with discouragements. With a treas ury so low the hospital bill of $75 must lie over; new cases applying could not all receive assistance, and the meager allowances already bestowed on regu lar beneficiaries must, it was thought in some way be retrenched. Thus the year began, but only short time had elapsed when kindly disposed individuals came to the res cue, and baseball games, minstrel shows, musical and reading entertain ment were arranged, and the results from these, together with generous private donations, set the machinery to moving, facilitating all its works. As shown in the treasurer's account, receipts during the year have been as follows: Membership fees $54, quar terly amounts from the Queen's Hos pital $416. ' interest on Government bonds $480, donations $1,846.40. Disbursements for benefit of bene ficiaries as follows: Passage moneys $90, for patients in the Queen's Hos pital $519, funeral expenses $34, milk bills $142.90, rents $237.25, to numerous calls, weekly rations, medicines, etc., $523.15. Sum total of expenditures for the year $2,011.13. Gratefully the Stranger's Friend So ciety acknowledges the generosity of its kind benefactors. For by their gifts has the society been enabled to do an extensive work, of rendering aid ana comfort to the poor, sick and suffering. Many old soldiers now feel the ef fects of the hard service they endured during the war. Mr. Geo. S. Anderson, of Rossville, York county, Penn., who saw the hardest kind of service at the front, is now frequently troubled with rheumatism. "I had a severe attack lately," he says, "and procured a bottle of Chamberlain's Pain Balm. It did so much good that I would like to know what you would charge me for one dozen bottles." Mr. Anderson wanted it both for his own use and to supply it to his friends and neighbors, as every family should have a bottle of it in their home, not only for rheu matism, but lame back, spains, swell ings, cuts, bruises and burns, for which it is unequaled.
