Hotel Grounds Have Plenty cf Mel low Light Favor Gained for the Washington. The r.ew Washington Light, shown in public exhibition at the Hawaiian hotel 1'ast evening entirely came up to the promises of the introducers. There were placed in the grounds an even dozen of the 1,500 candle power lamps and the light diffused by them was the most beautiful and satisfactory ever seen here. It is a soft, white light, comparable only to an intense moon light. There is no blurring or fierce ness, or Ilickering. and under the rays everything appears wholly natural. There is an absence of the shadows and the sputtering so common to the electric arc light. Mr. Almy, who brought the light here, and Col. Geo. Macfarlane, who is interested in the rights, were more than pleased with the test. The hun- Ireds of people who attended the band concert and looked at the lights were united in enthusiastic praise. It seemed almost impossible to realize that from kerosene such a light could be pro duced. The simple appliances were shown to many and the cheapness was self-evident with the quality. The conductor of the current of oil and air to the point of ignition and il lumination is a wire one-sixteenth of an inch in diameter. There is not the slightest danger of there ever being any interruption in the flow. In the first place the kerosene is filtered and then the fluid is very cleansing and smooth flowing. There is no detecting where there might be any danger in handling the light. The oil reservoir is at a distance from the light. There could not be communication between the flame and the tank and the only adjunct to the tank is an air-pump re sembling very much a bicycle foot pump. Many of the people who saw the new light last night "were anxious to secure it for use. As the demand in the States for the illuminant is so great it may be quite a time before any local orders can be filled. A number of plantation men want the light for mills and sugar rooms. .Mac mac Christ mas The Maemae Sunday school celebrat ed Christmas in the little church on Wyllie street, Xuuanu valley, on Wed nesday evening, Decemler 2Sth. The exercises of the first part, chiefly songs and recitations mingled, were given with good voice and no lack of spirit. Mr. Xakuina made a short ad dress to the children in their native tongue. The annual report showed an enrollment of 11G names, one-half be ing in the primary classes, and an av erage attendance of 35. The second part showed a beautiful Christmas tree. Ice cream and cake were served to all vho were present: every scholar received a gift. Candy in bags was distributed to all. and tin boms to the boys at the breaking up. which insured a suitable finale. This entertainment was provided by the liberality of ladies living in the vicinity, ami was second to none of the season. .Mr. Clark Siistcd. Honolulu. Dec. 2:nh, lM'S. EDITOR P. C. A. I notice in your article in this morning's paper, you give me the credit of the authorship of the amendment to the "Land Act." This is not wholly correct. 1 called the attention of the Land Commissioner to the desirability of the "Right of Purchase Lease" applying to "Settle ment Associations." And in conversa tion with President Dole, on the sub ject, h-e approved the idea, and stated he would prepare and introduce an amendment to that effect, which he did. To him the credit of this desir able addition being made to our la nil laws is due. Yours respectfully. BYRON O. CLARK. St. Andrew's Christmas. The hundreds and odd children who filled the Sunday school at St. An drew's last evening, on the o c ision of the Second Congregation's Christmas m celebration, all went away happy with the success of the affair.
