REV. V. H. KITCAT'S SERMON
Difficulties Under Which Mission
aries Have Labored for
At the Orpheum.
An immense house greeted the re
opening of the Orpheum Saturday
night. Every seat reserved and other
wise was taken long before time for
Allan Dunn's little skit "The Curate's
Little Time" commenced. Everybody
was in the best of good nature and
showed their appreciation of the re
opening by their presence.
It is still an open question whether
Jerry Mills or John Pampion made the
hit of the evening. Both performers
excelled themselves and their work is
clean cut. .
The next performance will be given
next Wednesday evening provided the
Aorangi arrives on time. A large num
ber of returning members of Mac
Adoo's minstrels are on this boat and
If possible the management of the Or
pheum will arrange for them to stop
over., A strong bill Is promised.

Re. V. H. Kltcat preached last even
ing at St. Andrew's Cathedral on the
present conditions in China. His text
was, "Fight te Good Fight;" Timothy,
6:12, and he spoke, in part, as follows:
There Is not a heart that has not been
stirred during the past week by the news
that has come from China. Expressions
of horror are heard on every side. But
one cannot help noticing at the same time
how slender and shadowy Is the knowl
edge, not merely of the details of recent
events, but of the general conditions that
exist in that wonderful land. We concern
ourselves with the conditions spiritual, so
cial and material, that play around- us in
the circle In which we live; we know lit-
tl of the great forces that are moving
and swaying the vast Empire of China.
We are face to face, In one sense, with
n new situation. It is not the first time
In the history of the world that the meet
ing of Christianity and civilization with
heathenism and barbarism has broken
out In the flames of massacre. We may
wtli stay our hands for a moment, and
ask whether the events that have stirred
U" so deeply are altogether the product
of darkness and prejudice. Is there no
fault In these forces that claim for them
selves the bright names of Progress, Civ
ilisation and Christianity? Is there no
greed of power? No lust of empire? No
grasping after commercial wealth at the
expense of millions less enlightened, yet
no less human, In their sense of nation-

There is, in some sense, a special reason
why we in these Islands and members of
this church should be closely touched by
the events at Peking, for that city has
been since 1SS0 the center whence the
Bishop of North China has directed the
operations of his vast diocese. The rec
ord of work there, is one that Impresses
on the mind a sense of reality, patience,
wisdom and progress. Bishop Scott went
out to Chefoo as a priest in 1874. in 1897
the S. P. .O. was able to report that he
had a staff of nine English priests, five
European and six Chlnepe lay helpers
and four English ladies; the baptized
Chinese numbered between 800 and 900,
while a school for boys and another for
girls had been brought into existence in
But all this has not been done without
cceU Continued anxiety has culminated
In the realization ot the worst fears. In
December of last year. Just after Christ
mas Day, Sydney Brooks laid down his
life as be was endeavoring to join hands
with Matthews, his fellow-worker who
was in danger at Ping Ylu. In the cur
rent number of The Mission Field we
read of the martyrdom of Charles Robin
son and Harry Wise Norman; while from
the telegrams of last week there Is but
too good ground for fearing that he who
has led this diocese for twenty years has
himself been called to taste of the cup
of suffering. With this ' culmination of
the past in view there are some tempted
to speak with impatience of missionary
wcrk, and to ask whether the end Is
wcrth the sacrifice.
Mission work that involves sacrifice such
ai this In China is mission work indeed.
It reminds us of the early days of Chris
tianity when the Roman Power, for the
security of the Empire, sought to extir
pate a religion which it considered hos
tile to its Interests. It seems to lift us j
out of the world of conventionality and
place us amid the realities of life. Chris
tianity with many of us involves no sac
rifice whatever; on the other hand, It is
a distinct advantage; we should be anx
ious, If we felt ' conscientiously obliged
to reject It; It means to many nothing
mere than accordance with the customs
of the world in which they move. But it
is not so In China.
The Chinaman in embracing the Chris
tian faitb, steps out of the ancient cus
toms amongst which he has been brought
up He 'rises tr new ideas,; new concep
tions of life. Ha parts company with his
fellows: he ceases to accept the approved
rules of daily life; he becomes a stranger
among bis brethren.
It la this practical outcome of Christi
anity that stirs In the minds of its oppo
nents such a feeling of hatred. Were it
merely a philosophy or theory of life by
which a man sought to explain to him
self the mystery of yie universe. It would
arouse no opposition. But it Is a practi
cal faith. It claims the control of the
life; It forbids certain lines of conduct,
and enjo'.ns others; It knows no compro
mise, and therefore when It Is not under
stcod it Is regarded as superstition, big
otry, stubbornness and lack of patriot
When we consider all this what It Is In
China to be a Christian It makes us won
der how much of our own duty is real.
how much of it would stand the test of
persecution, how much Is personal, con
trolling, inulvldual, possessed of a living
existence, apart from the conventional
standard amidst which we live?
If there be Indeed a living faith amongst
us, the news of this last week will impel
us to do more than hold ud hands of
horror. It will prompt us to do the little
we may to dispel the darkness of super
stition and heathenism. Bishop Scott ten
years ago pointed out how that the Chi
nese were slew to be moved so long as
they dwelt In their own land, although
very accessible witen they found them
selves In foreign countries beyond the
reach of ancestral traditions and preju-
aices; out mat ir slow to move, it was
notorious that they were very staunch

The trustees of the Queen's Hospital
vigorously combat the statement that
the Queen's Hospital Is In serious trouble
owing to the likelihood that the Govern
ment appropriation will be cut off after
the first of next year. They assert that
while the Queen's Hospital may be some
what embarrassed If tue appropriation Is
cut off there will be no Impairment of its
usefulness whatever and that funds will
be raised elsewhere to make up the defi
"There Is a possibility that the legisla
tive appropriation will be cut off after
the first of the year," said George W.
Smith yesterday, "but even so we shall
have funds enough to get along, although
the hospital will be somewhat crippled.
You see there is a provision in the United
States Constitution that public property
shall not be taken for private use, or
that the people shall not be taxed to sup
port private institutions.' The Queen's
Hospital is, from the nature of Its char
ter, a quasi-private Institution. When it
was chartered it was provided that all
Hawalians, of native birth, should be
treated free of charge. Foreigners were
to be treated by payment of fees.
"Under the Monarchy and the Republic
$10,000 was annually appropriated for its
support, but now that the Islands are a
part of the United States this sum may
be eliminated from the appropriation list.
We have already lost the $1 tax which
was exacted rrom everyone wno ianaea
on the Islands, which amounted to some
thing over $30,000 annually, and likewise
the seamen's tax, which netted us an
other $2,000 or more, so with this addition
al money lost We shall be out a consider
J BEST ROOFING IN THE WORLD,
of our revenue. We have
still a goodly revenue, however, from
lards given the hospital by the Queen
and from other donations.
"So you see there was no necessity of
saying tha the hospital was 'threatened,'
and I am sorry that any such statement
was made. The hospital Is in no danger,
and it Is wrong to lead people to believe
that such is the case. Our income will
not be what It has been In the past, but
as the years go we shall have undoubted
ly public hospitals, a city or county hos
pital, that will take part of the work
from the present one, so that our funds
and income will carry the work of the in
stitution on all right." ,
There was to have been a meeting of
the Board of Trustees of the hospital Sat
urday morning, but owing to the Impos
sibility of securing a quorum of the trus
tees, it was postponed until a later date.
D. Dle buys Sixty-One
Acres for i lie Sum of
Sixty-one acres of land In the tract
occupied by the California colony at
Wahiawa was sold ajt public auction to
J. D. Dole, nephew of Governor Dole,
for the round sum of $1000. The figur
at which the land sold Is somewhat
surprising as the upset price was only
$300 and it was thought that the land
would tetch but little over that sum.
Land Commissioner J. F. Brown con
ducted the sale at the Judiciary build
ing at noon and there were a number
of bidders who made the sale a lively
one. The bidding began with an offer
of $305 and the figure advanced grad

that there was to be a fight for the
land and bids began to grow larger.
After a battle of some length the land
was knocked down to Mr. Dole at $4000.

and is the last piece of property In the
