Reports Various National
The annual meeting of the Woman's
Board of Missions for the Pacific was
held yesterday. As usual there was a
large attendance. There were many
gratifying reports of work done, and
helpful suggestions for the coming
year. The history of the twelve
months past has been one of earn
est purpose, hard work, and real suc
cess. Some points brought out by those
who reported for the various branches
of work are worth remembering. Miss
Mary Greene speaking of the Hawai
ian Bible Reader's work told of an
increase of i cleanliness in the homes
visited, but especially pleasing were
her remarks concerning the effect of
the work upon the Hawaiian women
who accompany her in her daily visits.
They have learned, she says, lessons
which make them really executive in
the work, and better than all express
the thought that in service is the only
Mrs. Damon made a strong appeal
for a woman helper in the Chinese
Mission Work. That work goes on
very successfully but those most in
terested know that there is an un
measured field of usefulness for some
woman who wilJ devote her life to
the Chinese. women in this city.
An interesting item of Mrs. Gulick's
report told of the increased attend
ance of women at the religious meet
ings held for the Japanese here in Ho
nolulu; on the other hand it is rather
startling to hear that during the past
year the number of Buddhist priests
in the eity has greatly increased. They
will constitute an unexpected and new
obstacle to Avork f qt Japanese here.
The Portuguese work is progressing
finely. Miss Fernandez said that oiten
when she goes into The homes of her
people she is met with the question,
"Have you brought the little Book?"
So eager are evtn Those who do not
profess "Protestantism for the Word
which has been denied them. Daring
thfc morning the Society voted to send
to the Legislature a memorial against
legislation favorable to opium traffic.
The treasurer's repcxt showed that
$1.1.04.07. had been collected dining the
year for the regular work, of which
$281.64 is carri-ed over to the new year.
In addition to this, about $600 has bsen
sent to the Armenian sufferers.
The recess and lunch were delight
in 1 features of the meeting; while the
afternoon session was especially agree
able. A chorus of girls from Kameha
meha, with Miss Clymer as leader,
rendered a delightful number. None
who heard it can forget Miss Hyde's
sweet solo -The King of Love My
Shepherd is." The inspiration of the
-meeting came largely from the address
of the President Mrs. Hyde. In the

making every condition and circum

I give Thee' In h:-r annual address
the president said in part: "When

around them, than is presented to us?

.work? Here it opens before us among
the thousands from China and Japan.
Is it Home Missions in which we are
specially interested? Here we are sur

and His Salvation, but who care for
none of these things. Is it philanthro

our sympathies? Look at the poor and

finished. His "Outposts," a marine

floral pieces were likewise very favor

for a ten-inch well. It is claimed that
the surface indications are all that

Advertiser is the recognized leading
journal of the Hawaiian Islands, and
has no rival as an advertising medium.
