Phone 1271 ANCHOR SALOON PUREST AND BEST LIQUORS Corner Nuuanu and King Streets Away back in the eighties, when tin.' V. -M. C. A. was only a coin parat i ely young institution and when the present building was erected in Honolulu, a copper box was embedded in the mason ry of one of the corner stones. In it were placed various recoils s'o that in years to come, when a new building was planned, the members of the later gen eration would be sure to know some thing about the origin of the old home. On Monday morning the st'one was broken into and the case removed. This was done in order that the papers con tained in it might be added to and the whole of the documents placed iu one of the corner stones of the magnificent new building, nxw in course of erec tion, and which is the largest in the world in comparison with the size of the town. The taking up of this stone recalls old memories. The ceremony of laying it took place on September S, l'ssi!, when there was a large crowd present, including Ilis Majesty the King. His Excellency H. M. Daggett, United States minister resilient; Hon. A. S. Cleghorn, Hon. Charles K. Bishop, presi dent of the board of education, F. A. Sehaefer, dean of the foreign consular body; and a large number of leading citizens. "Well and Truly Laid." The proceedings were commenced by the ringing of a sacred piece by the choir 'of fourteen of the best amateurs of the day under the leadership of V. W. Hall. J. A. C'ruzau offered waver and Rev. C. M. Hyde read a description of the building. The box was then de posited in its resting place. Professor Pratt laid the mortar and guided the stone into its exact place. After de claring it to be "well and truly laid," he added a few words of exhortation. 1'. C. Jones, the then treasurer, stated the finances. There was a debt of .'jU0u still owing on the building. The total cost had been made up as follows: Land .400, contract price of building fU.'iiMi and another .'c'oOO for furniture, lighting, etc. An appeal was made by him for subscriptions to meet the debt and about half the sum was raised on the spot. Contents of the Cylinder. The box or cylinder, which is of cop per and in perfect state of preservation. is lying at the present time in the safe at Castle & Cooke's. When it was first taken out an anxious time was ex perienced as nothing 'could be heard rattling about inside. When the fol lowing list of papers which are in the box are read over, however, there s no wonder that no rattle could be heard.
