A Test of the New Allumi
nant is Made.
Hotel Grounds Have Plenty cf Mel
low Light Favor Gained for
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
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

The Maemae Sunday school celebrat
ed Christmas in the little church
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

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.
