ST. PETER'S PARISH
Admission 25c, Children under 14
' Rev. James H. Kekela died yester-
lay mornyig at his home on School
street after a very short illness. He
wa in his eighty-third year. The
funeral services were held at 4:30 in
the afternoon at Kawaiahao church.
James Kekela's religious training be
gan in a little Sunday School taught
bjr the father of Rev. Mr. Parker over
on the other side of Nuuanu Pali. From
his earliest years it was his great am
bition to carry the tidings of the gos
pel to the natives who inhabited the
other islands of the Pacific. For a
number of years he prepared himself
for the work by study and labor among
ing and, all unconscious of danger,
sent several boat loads of men ashore.
As soon as they landed on the beach
the natives attacked them from am
bush and in the retreat one, the mate
was left behind. He was immediately
dragged to the hut of the chief which
was located near the water's edge and
preparations were made for a' grand
luau. ' ' -
The unfortunate captive was bound
to a tree and made to suffer the most
excruciating torture while the. natives
prepared the fire on which he was to
be roasted in the morning. This proc
ess was carried on before his own
eyes and in sight of his companions
who were helpless on the ship. Mean
while the missionary had learned of
the affair and came to beg for the life
of the man. The chief was obdurate,
however. The white men had killed
his people and he must have his ven
geance. Finally after a night of parley
the chief agreed that if Mr. Kekela
would give himt his' new ' six-oared
whaleboat he would let the captive go.
This decision was received with great
dissatisfaction on the part of' the other
natives who saw themselves deprived
of a feast but the cupidity of their
rulfcr held Kekela to his bargain and
the boat was exchanged for the man.
Mr. Kekela rowed the dazed man out
to the ship and when the sailors tried
to make him accompany them he
steadfastly refused and went back to
the work that he loved.
Before the year was over another
American ship appeared in the offing
and when Mr. Kekela went out to her
he was presented with a gold watch
his own people. His first ministerial
service was as pastor of the Kahukuland chain a new. boat and numerous

P. C. Jones Likes Idea
Of a Trolley
for the Marquesas Islands accompanied
by his devoted wife.
Previous to the missionary's depart
ure for the South Seas numerous at
tempts hai been made to found a mis
sion on the Marquesas Islands but the .
wild cannibals had resisted all at
tempts to civilize them but when the
old chief was nearing the end of his
days he sent to Hawaii for some one
ts tell him the story of the Saviour
of which he . had heard stories. He
welcomed Mr. Kekela but many of the
people did not and It was over almost
insurmountable difficulties that the
mission was finally established. At
one time the entire membership of the
church aside from the preacher and
his wife were killed and eaten by an
opposing faction of the natives.
During the year 1S63 a pirate ship
called at the islands and carried off
a number of the natives including the
son of the chief, taking them to Peru
to be sold as slaves. This s- angered
the chief that he vowed that he would
kiii and eat the first white man who
set foot on the islands. About a year
afterwards in the early part of 1S64,
in American ship appeared in the off-
nis de.ath. The letter from the Presi
dent thanking him for his act and ex
tlpdingX an invitation to visit the
States was also a souvenir highly
J For fifty years Mr. Kekela labored
among the Marquesans and then came
to Honolulu to spend his declining
years. For much of the time he has
been ill but his last few years were
a period of great activity for one of
his age. He left two sons who are
working among the Marquesans and
four daughters who reside in Hono
lulu. ' '
It is interesting to learn that the
cannibal chief who ordered the death
of the American sailor was himself
shot in a battle with some rebellious
subjects and met the same horrible
fate that he had designed for,his white

"While I was east I noticed partic
ularly the manner in which mails are
taken care of in the cities," said P.
C. Jones yesterday.. "I noticed that
many of the street cars were fittted
with mail drop boxes where letters
could be deposited in the suburbs, and
collected in the city.
"It seems to me it would be a good
idea to have some of the Rapid Tran
sit cars equipped with drop boxes so
that residents of Waikiki, College
Hills, Kalihi and Palama could deposit
letters in them. It seems a little thing
but very often after one has written
a letter he or she must get on a street
car, go down to mail it in the post
office and then ride back home again.
It therefore costs 10 cents to mail a
letter which Uncle Sam will carry
thousands of miles for 2 cents.
"Of course, I know that letter boxes
are distributed about the city, but fre
quently people would rather' send let
ter? direct to the post office, feeling
sure then that they will get away on
the right steamers."
