Something About the Career of

Rev. J. Kauhane, the veteran pastor
of the native church in Kau, Hawaii,
died on Monday at the Queen's hos

years old when he died and had for
forty years been pastor of the Waiobinu

both the Hilo Boarding school and La-
hainaluna, after which he attended the
North Pacific Theological Institute.
After his graduation, he was sent as a
delegate to the South Sea Islands
where he remained for a year. Interest
centers around this fact as he was the
first Hawaiian to assume this position.
On his arrival here after his mission to
the South Seas, he was ordained and i
the church at Kau given him. Soon J
after assuming this pastorate, he was
appointed District Judge of Kau. As

CHINESE BLOOD FEOD
AIRED IN COURT
Another Chinese tong affair occupied
the attention of the District Court yes
terday afternoon, this being the trial
of Loo Yip, Lee Look and Leong Ken
for an assault with a deadly weapon
upon Pak Chee and also the trial of
Pak Chee and Ung Yan for assault and
battery upon Loo Yip and Lee Look.
One of the defendants in the more se
rious case, Leong Ken, is the assistant
editor of the Sun Kwoek Bok news
paper, who explains his arrest as a mis
take. He had called at the police
station as a reporter on the evening of
the fight and while securing the news
of the affair for his paper was sur
prised to find himself identified as one
of the knifers. He is a highly re
spected and educated Chinese and out
side of the unpleasantness of being on
trial seems in no way worried over the
Pak Chee, the principal witness of
the prosecution, was on the stand yes
terday and in direct testimony ex
plained to Judge Whitney just how the
affair took place and how narrow es
cape he had had from assassination.
His blood-stained clothes, the coat and
shirt showing the knife cut in the
shoulder were exhibited as evidence.
In this case the alleged knifers are
members of the Bow Wong society and
are being represented by E. M. Wat
son, the assaulters being members of
the rival Ming Sin Sear society, who
have retained J. Lightfoot as their at
torney. The candies of the Alexander Young
Cafe have not been in the market six
months, but they have already made a
name for themselves.
Mission Workers Holdlnterest-
ing Ail-Day Meeting at
There was an unusually good attend
ance at the all-day annual meeting of
the Woman's Board at Central Union
church yesterday, the number of dele
gates from the other islands being one
of the gratifying features of the occa-
sion. There were also a number of
visitors present during the different

called upon to address the members.
At noon luncheon was served in a large
tent pitched on the lawn, being pre

There was no lack of interest shown
at the afternoon session, which was
called to order by Mrs. Scudder shortly
after luncheon. At this session some
interesting reports were read by those
in charge of the various branches of
the mission work in Honolulu. Miss

Mission work in other places and set

of addresses from other visitors of the
Board. President Mills, of Mills Col

HABERDASHER AND CLOTHIER
Commencement Exercises With
Many Races Represented
The annual commencement exercises
of the Kawaiahao Seminary were held
last night at th'e Kawaiahao church
and were attended by a large number
of friends and relatives of the gradu
ating class. Perhaps the most inter
esting feature was the representation
of so many different races among the
pupils. Americans, Hawaiians, Japa
nese and Chinese nationalities were all
present and all seemed at home.
The music for the occasion was fur
nished by the Seminary Glee Club, and
the fresh voices of the young girls In
the various choruses which they sang
attracted many who were passing by,
but who stopped to hear the music.
The bridal chorus from the "Rose
Maiden" was a particularly well-ren
An interesting feature of the pro
gram was the reading of three essays
by members of the graduating class,
one girl being Chinese, one Japanese
and the third Hawaiian. "The World's
Food Supply" was the subject chosen
by Miss Emma Liftee, while "New
China" was that on which Miss En
Nyen Wung had written her paper.
"Retrospect and Forecast" was covered
by Miss Hisayo Hiroshima.
The address to the graduates was de
livered by Rev. Roland B. Dodge, the
agent of the Hawaiian Board of Mis
sions on Maui. He spoke of the first
time that he ever heard of Kawaiahao,
telling of many years ago when he
read an article which was accompanied
by a picture of the church in which he
was at present. He said that at that
time a number of Hawaiian women
were visiting the United States and
their splendid physique had attracted
general attention. In fact, it had been
stated, he said, that the Hawaiian
women were the most beautiful physi
cally of any in the world.
He went on to show the real mean
ing of beauty to be in beauty of char
acter, and from this drew a lesson for
the members of the graduating class,
to show them that, no matter where
they were, this beauty of character,
which was theirs by birthright, should
never be neglected or forgotten.
HUE ART EXHIBITS
OF KILOHANA LEAGUE
Few places the size of Honolulu can
produce an exhibition as creditable as
the present picture and arts and crafts
show at the Kilohana Art League
rooms. The spring exhibition and the
new clubhouse are proving an agree
able surprise even to the club members.
Generously thrown open to the public
free of charge throughout this week
and evenings except Friday, the club
rooms will be closed thereafter except
to members. The permanent exhibits
and salesrooms will, however, remain
open continuously from 10 to 5 daily.
Teachers should avail themselves of
the opportunity thus afforded to con
duct parties of school children to see
what has been accomplished. Yester
day, some of the Art League members
being on hand, the children visiting
were given some interesting criticisms
of the different works.
Mr. Harry M. Mis,t, formerly of Ho
nolulu, is winning a name for himself
in Dresden, as a miniature painter on
ivory. That he should meet with suc
cess, where competition is so keen
speaks well for his ability. In the
present Art League exhibition his two
miniatures painted from life are re
ceiving a great deal of well-merited
attention and admiration.
Only four days more remain in which
to see this semi-annual exhibit. Cor
