My opinion ol the matter is, judging from my. own personal knowlede of his char acter, that If he thought he had "been directly or Indirectly the cause of an-! other person's death he would, in ac- i cordance with his old school , ideas of I honor, take his own life.

Maidenhair ferns dec orated the pulpit. " , ' beated in a semi-circle within the chancel were Dr. Kincaid, the Rev.

She called on me several times after that, and one evening when I was recovering we walked down Fort street together, and met Bennett. He bowed to her, but she would take no notice of him. That was last October, a year ago. Never heard her speak of him since, and did not see her any more until she came to my place of business. ARCHITECTS. fWH.r.K A FAOK. Airhlteeta an I mco fnotna 1-4.

MAJOR ENNIS SPEAKS WARMLY; William Ennls, Major of the Sixth Artillery, U. S. A., spoke at some length, addressing the Jury at the invitation of Mr. Chllllngworth, in a general story of his association with Bennett, and what about four weeks ago, and wanted to 'to procure leis of the royal flower lima know if I could lend her $150. She said aa they were not strung, but the royal colors were fully represented in bios soms and ribbon, nevertheless. All the boys and girls sang in unison "Nearer My God to Thee" and follow ed with "Only Remembered." That is the kind of plaintive song that brings the tears to one's eyes and a choking sensation in the throat. This one line ppeaks for the touching beauty of the whole: "We are only remembered by the things we have done." Anything more effective and impress ive than these two hundred and eighty flve fresh young voices soaring, clear, full and resonant, ln gratitude to her who had ennobled and uplifted their lives, may better be imagined than de scribed.

In the great dining hall facing the campus, whose green sward and alge roba trees and fine palms ln front of Bishop Hall, with their branches gently waving to every light touch of wind, gave enchantment to the view, was spread a luau flt for the Hawaiian gods. Eleven tables were set crosswise and lengthwise In the vast interior and cov ers had been laid for 269 people. The tables accommodated anywhere from twelve to thirty-two guests, faculty. boys and girls. They were spread with spotless napery and under each plate were laid tl leaves overlaid with ferns. All along the table, at regular Intervals were pots of unusually fine maidenhair. The menu included the following del icacies, which found favor with all: Pol, puaa, wrapped in tl leaves; plpl, also wrapped in tl leaves: mullet, en cased like the others in leaves: taro. kullo, the Hawaiian pudding, compos ed of cocoanut. taro and milk of cocoa nut: sweet ptitoos roasted, and sever al mw iic flntsbinir with ice cream. nf f Ake and fruit.

With the arrival of Miss Jessie Ack-erman-and Miss Ada Mercutt, two "Round-the-World" missionaries, on the Coptic, Honolulu will be in a re form upheaval. A temperance crusade Is being planned, and these two well known lecturers are to be assisted by such noted factors as the Woman's Christian Temperance Union, the Pas toral Union, and the California Anti- Saloon League, the latter to be repre sented by Dr. Chapman, of Oakland, who will arrive early in January. The liquor traffic will be attacked in a Beriea of meetings calculated .to arouse sentiment in favor of the bill which Congressman Littlefleld, of Maine, has Introduced, prohibiting the sale to the aborigines of the Pacific Islands, of opiifm and liquor.
