HlHEJ B l B a S pa-u riders are almost an unknown 1 j .:f-m-nt of modern Hawaiian life, but ot ! twer.tv vears ago riding parties Wirr.'.n attired in the gorgeous yel low, red and green skirts affected on such occasions, were very common. The Promotion Committee, the auto people and those generally interested in the success of the Floral Parade have determined that on "Washington's Isirthday people here will have an op portunity of seeing an old-time caval cade. It seems a simple thing, putting on several yards of bright-colored cloth as a skirt and sitting in a saddle with the ends of the cloth floating to the "breeze far behind the flanks of the borses, but there is an art in adjusting the skirt, and a novice would be be wildered. Mrs. Kamaka Strllman, an aged Ha waiian lady well-known all over the islands, whose picture is presented herewith, is an adept in draping the Pa-u skirt, ard Mr. Hartley has se cured her services, voluntarily offer ed, to teach young women between nn,i vvasViiviertnn's Birthday the almost lost art. Mrs. Stillman lives in School street, near the Nuuanu bridge. She, with Mrs. Jennie Miles of Asylum road, and Mrs. Holt of Pala ma, will give instructions in the drap ing and the making of Pa-us at any time. Mrs. StiTlman, although quite ad vanced in years, is determined to ride once more In a Pa-u cavalcade. In her prime she was considered one of the "best horsewomen in the islands. Mrs. E. M. Johnson of Palolo Valley is organizing a party for the parade; also Miss Myra Heleluhe, a protege of Que?n Liliuokalani, who will ride with Miss Bernice Cook. Mrs. Wagner of t-'chool street is also organizing a party, and from various sections of the city the committee is receiving entries. There are a. number of fine riders , among the young women of Honolulu iind among them are the Mutch girls, and who are understood to be avail able. Mrs. Jennie Mile3 will see that a party is organized. Little Miss Clor- inda Low and Master Frances Brown are already entered. The four pictures presented herewith show some of the details of arrang ing the Pa-u skirt. This particular skirt is of turkey red cloth, and its dimensions are twelve feet by nine feet. The cloth is taken by the longest v.ay and doubled and wrapped around the hips from the back to the front. It is knotted in front as shown in the I rut. The holoku is then gathered -up and reaching down and under between the ankles, the wearer draws the rear l fold of cloth and raises it to the waist as shown in the picture labeled "Half "Way Adjusted." A kukui nut or a stone is used in the fold of the knotted cloth to hold it 'securely In position The additional fold of the cloth is then dropped forward, forming a sort of apron. The dress then forms a sort of divided skirt. The feet are directly on the cloth and the ends trail out be hind. A cloak is then thrown over the shoulders, leis are adjusted over the collar and some in the hair, .which is often allowed to be let down unham pered by pins or combs. When mount ed the cloak is dropped over the pom mel of the saddle and the reins are held in the hands beneath the cloak. With anywhere from thirty to a hun dred such riders the spectacle is pic- turesoue. When Queen Emma made a royal tour of this island in 1ST5 the Pa-u riders were described by Mr. Gir- vin in his account of Hon. John Cum mins' life, as follows: "After breakfast the cavalcade was put in order. It consisted of one hun dred and forty women, riding; astride, dressed in the brightest colors the stores of Honolulu afforded. The Pa-u or riding habit of the women consists of a long piece of bright calico wrap ped around the hips and extendin down to the stirrup, from whence it flares out behind when the horse is in motion. The impression as we swept through the streets on our dashin horses must have been gorgeous. Her Majesty and myself led the procession, followed by her mother and other chiefs. The streets of Honolulu7 were t4ronged with people to witness th ;-and sight, and it would appear that the whole city and many from th country had turned out to see the de rrUire." a 1 a i in t : U a,' B Hi B IK) B .

Kditors Argonaut: If the soul of the Argonaut could be rescued from its intolerable enslavement to the sand- lots, it would be an interesting paper. It gives us insights that we do not find in the other papers. Just now I want to take upon my self the pleasant duty of thanking the Argonaflt. in behalf of all the truth- loving people of our country, for call ing our attention to a c-int communi cation to the I-"ew York Outlook, from one Mr. or Rev. Doremus Scudder of Hawaii. i Now, I profess to be quite as famil iar with Chinese characters and capa bilities as the editor of the Argonaut. and I have no hesitation in saying that the article that the Argonaut calls our attention to in the Outlook, is the most faithful depiction of Chinese character that I have seen in any pa-, j per in the last twenty-five years. I I hava nver heard of tho Areonaut j Christ fending its position, when it occupies a. position that is defensible, but its editorial comment on Mr. Doremus Scudder's letter is a conspicuous fail v re. If the Chinese have been goaded in to a "synchronous growth of hatred, contempt, and fury at men of the white race," whose fault is it? Th Argonaut may find ancestral justification for its treatment of the Chinese by tracing its lineage to th? "Normans. Teutons, and Vikings" notably the latter but when it has to go back to "Homer, Virgil. Dante and Shakespeare"' for examples of race su periority, it betrays a lack of confi dence in present conditions that calls for a liberal infusion of virile Chinese blood. j In the comparatively few Anglo-Chi- j neso unions that have taken place j witnm my knowledge I have not known one that has resulted in racial impairment to the Anglo, but contra wise betterment. The Ar"rm;vit. would rot "trade f'hrist for Confucious." Perhaps net. but would the editor riace h's edi torials nVptrsWe of th tetrhing of Confucious. to be jointly submitted to the New Testament for its decision as to th spirit that pervades the writ ings ' "If any man hath not the sririt of he is none of Hi-."
