|Description||Published by the Rev. Samuel Chenery Damon from 1845 to 1885, The Friend focused on temperance and Christian mission to seamen. It began as a monthly newspaper that included news from both American and English newspapers, and gradually expanded to adding announcements of upcoming events, reprints of sermons, poetry, local news, editorials, ship arrivals and departures and a listing of marriages and deaths. From 1885 through 1887, it was co-edited by the Revs. Cruzan and Oggel. The editorship then passed to Rev. Sereno Bishop, who held the post until the publication of the paper fell under the auspices of the Board of the Hawaiian Evangelical Association in April of 1902 where it remained until June 1954. Since then, it has continued in a different format under the Hawaii Conference-United Church of Christ up to the present day, making it the oldest existing newspaper in the Pacific. Note that there are some irregularities in the numbering of individual issues, so that two issues may have the same volume and number, but different dates will distinguish them.|

HONOLULU, NOVEMBER, 1884. THELASTOFTHEKA.MEHAMEHAS. Through the combined influence of The dynasty of the Kamehamehas, occupies a remarkable position in the world's history of the Nineteenth Century. The century opens with Kamehamehaeha I upon the Hawaiian throne, and h1s successors and descendants occupied that throne in peacejnl possession during the seven following decades. We use the term peaceful, giving it a marked significance, for during that period, while the thrones of the Kingdoms of Europe and other nations of the world have been shaken and many of them overthrown, the Throne of Hawaii has been occupied by kings, who have ruled in peace, and their sub- of birth, wealth, culture and character, she occupied a position not only peculiar but unique. The representative of the most powerful line of chiefs of the olden time, she was also an exponent of the best type of foreign habits and mode of life. Retaining a natural and proper pride of ancestry and an interest in the welfare of her own people, she so perfectly assimilated the essential spirit of Anglo-American culture as to take easily and naturally that high position in the best foreign society to which her birth and fortune entitled her. She was thus a link bet"een ·the old and the new, between the native and the foreign, in a sense which was not true of any other person whatever. It jects have enjoyed peace.

MRS, BISHOP'S GENEALOGY• Kamehameha I. had to wife in his youth Kaneikapolei (w). There was born to them Kaoleioku, called also Pauli Kaoleioku. This chieftain had to wife Kahailiopua, called more commonly Luahine, and they had a daughter, Konia, who was married to Abner Paki. These were the parents of Mrs. Bishop. Kaoleioku had, by a previous wife. Keoua (w), a daughter, Pauahi (w), who was, by M. Kekuanao_a, the '!Ilother of_ Ruth_Keelikolani. Mrs. B1!>hop and Keehkolam were therefore cousins. Mrs. Bishop was named Pauahi after Keelikolani's mother, who was at one time one of the wives of Kamehameha II. The superior rank of Keopuolani, the wife of Kamehameha I., who bore Kamehamehas II. and III., gave her children precedenc.e over the child of Kanei_ka polei. But that Kaoleioku was a son of Kame11ameh:1 I. is evidenced by the statement naade by this great king when, after the assa~sination of Keoua (k) at the heiau or temple of Puukohola at Kawaihae, Keliimaikai was about to kill Kaoleioku, who was in charge of the second division of Keoua's escort, Kamehameha said : " He shall not die ; he is the child of my youth."

Some one has forwarded to our ad1 .c d ress, a copy of .th_e B os t on Jo~rna, 1or June 4th., contammg a verbatim copy of tp.e last will of Samuel W. Swett, of Jamaica Plains.

M.' C. Associations, Sailor's Societies, Homes for the Poor, " Little Wanderers," Children's Aid Society, and other benevolent imtitutions. When satisfied that his friends and benovolent institutions, were properly remembered, he adds : "All the rest" of my estate, I give to the American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions, and the Massachusetts Home Missionary Society," We have heard it asserted that this balance, would amount, to two or three hundred thousand dollars. It is also reputed that the deceased was a member of the Unitarian Church, Jamaica Plains, of which the Rev. Dr. Thompson is Pastor, who also receives a legacy of $2,000. The. family, of our friend Charles Brewer, were also remem- of the Executors. The largest legacies, it appears, were assigned to the Massachusetts Horne Missionary Society, and A. B. C. F. M. From what the papers report respecting the moral ¼ondition of the Old Bay · h l State, this society will soon ave amp e funds to carry out the plans and purposes of its managers. There is a special reason why we rejoice, that the A. B. C. F. M. receives a large donation.

In our columns we have often cornmended the books relating to Polynesia written by Miss Gordon Cumming. Her books entitl~d "At Home in Fiji," "Cruise in a French Man-of-War," and "Fire Fountains," we regard as among the best volumes ever written upon affairs in the Pacific. The reading of At Home in Fiji has happily secured a large bequest to the London Missionary Society. We learn this fact from a letter received some months since, from Miss Cu mrning dated, Gleneam House, Crieff, February 26th, 1884. After referring to the sale of her own books, she remarked : "But I heard pleasant news recently, namely, that a rich Mr. Wells died last year, and left £I5,ooo to the London Mission, as tk result of reading at Home in Ft}i. should immediately procure a copy and read it. Her other volumes are equally worthy of perusal.

The first of the series of meetings conducted by this eminent evangeli~t will be held in Fort Street Church on Friday Evening, November 29th. Meetings preparatory are now being held weekly, at the Y. M. C. A. Hall, conducted by the Rev. Mr. Oggel and the Rev. Mr. Cruzan, alternately. RETURN BORROWED BOOKS Next to the pleasure of loaning books, is that of having them returned, so that they may be loaned again. The books with the following titles are missing from our library: "Fire Fountains," in 2 vols, by Miss C. G. Cumming. "Hunnewell's Hawaiian Bibliography." "Bainbidge's Tour Round the World." "Prison of Weltvredeii." THE FRIEND, NOVEMBER, 1884, WHO IS T. DWIGHT HUNT ? We have recently heard this question asked, in omnection with the authorship of a volume on " The Past and Present of the Sandwich Islands'• being a series of lectures to the first Congeregational Church of San Francisco, 18 .5 3. In answer to this question we would remark that the Rev. T. D. Hunt, came to the Sandwich Isiands, as a missionary of the Americcn Board, in 1845 and was stationed in 1845, at Kau, Hawaii. He very sooQ acquired the Hawaiian language, and in a few months was preaching. In 1846 he removed to Lahainaluna where he entered enthusiastically into the business of instruction, and performed important work in translati1;g text books. In 1 848 he was invited to preach to the Foreign residents of Honolulu, and he.ld services in the " Charity School House," on ground now occupied by the government building. While preaching in this city, an urgent call was received from San Francisco for a Protestant clergyman to labor among the inhabitants of that city. A free passage was granted to him, a salary of $2,500 for one year's labor as a chaplain at large. He entered upon this new and important field oflabor with great zeal and enthusiasm. He remained for several years as pastor of the Congregational Church of that city, and it was during that period that he delivered the lectures referred to at the head of this article. Mr. Hunt was an eloquent and able preacher. We shall never forget the last sermon preached in our Bethel before his embarkation, from the text " Stand in awe, and sin not" Psalms 4: 4. After returning to the East. he was settled in Michigan, and subsequently in Sodus, N. Y. We last met our ~ld and pleasant associate in Philadelphia, at the Centennial, in 1876. Our recollec• tions of Mr. Hunt as a preacher and friend are most pleasant. His lectures are worthy of perusal and we rejoice that a copy has found its way into the Honolulu Library, and another copy lies before us, a present from the author more than thirty years ago. In I 84 7 he wrote several atricles for the Friend, entitled "The 1Vants of Seamen," which attracted much attention and were extensively read. We wish to thank the editors of the dailies and weeklies of Honolulu, for the many kindly notices which we have received since our return from China. The delay of this acknowledgement has been occasioned by the fact that our little sheet is only a Month ly. OCTOBER MON TH LY CONCER T AT THE BETHEL. At the last Bethel Monthly Con~ert, there was an exhibition of talent quite praiseworthy. In addition to the remarks by the Rev. Mr. Oggle, Mrs. Dillingham, most happily described the historical and geographical features of Persia _; Mrs. J. Shaw read an ·essay upon the history of missions in Persia ; Miss Nettie Andrews, read a poem on Persia, while Mrs. Dillingham read the following original poem upon Persia, which we take much pleasure in publishing : PERSIA· Oh land of the cast, whose broad valleys and plains The sun richly tints ere meridian attains,Oh country so famous in story and song, Whose past covers centuries many and long,Oh nation, rich dowered by God with lar~e gifts Of wealth and vast power,-break silence, and lit\ The veil that conceals the grand march thou hast made Since first at thy feet these great honors were laid. The tapestry drawn, with dismay we behold Great darkness and gloom, thy long past close enfold, What meaneth this desert, this wilderness drear, When God at creation the world cradled here ? Have suns failed to shine, have the dews ceased to fall, Have winds wafted grim desolation o'er all? Have treasurea entrusted thy mountains aud seas Lain folded in napkins, thy long sloth to please? With richness thy hills and thy valleys abound, Thy plains bare and sterile of value are found, Thy rivers and seas yield rare jewels to shine In settings the choicest skilled art can combine. Thy vintage, thy orchards np land can excel, With plenty each harvest right royal might swell, The germs of rich growth and achievement are there, Thy rank mids't the nations oh Persia, is-where? The people who thronged thee long centuries ago, A nation became, that was hard to o'er throw; In letters and hws, as in arms they were strong, Their conquests are treasured in h1st'ry and song, Thy rank mids't all nations was first then byright, But glories and honors well won, took their flight, And conquering tribes filled the land with their hordes, And rule and religion enforced with sharp swords. Not "sword of the spirit," but spirit of sword Has swayed thee for ages, and precious blood poured On altars of faith, blind devotion rais<'!d high, Whose followers were known by their wild battle cry. Ah here is thy secret of failure and shame, Thy rise and thy progress, thy glory and fame, Went out like the meteor dazzling and swift And far down the stream of oblivion now drift. J. G Lewis-an old-timer, born in these islands, for merly in business in Honolulu and recently resident of Ko_ hala-dropped dead in the doorway of Mr. J. E. Wiseman's office yesterday morning. Lewis was a son of a ship captain named Lewis. His mother was Polly Holmes, daughter, by a native wife, of Oliver Holmes, a sailor discharged here about 1798, and who left several descendents. Lewis was engaged in the dry goods importing In 1851, or _business about 1845. thereabouts, he was in business · Boston. He afterwards returned here and was again in the dry goods trade. He afterwards became J. member of the ship chandler firm of Mitchell and Fales, who had a ~store on the lot now occupied by the liquor store of Lovejoy & Co.~ on Nuuanu street. Upon h •1 t e fat ure of this firm, Lewis began to go down hill and has been poor ever since. Some ·me in the fifties he built the residence m Nm::rnu valley above the ice works now 0wned by Queen Emma. It is coincident that Lewis, first wife died suddenly in Kawaiahao Church about 1852 or 3. By a second wife he leaves several children. His death was caused by heart disease from which he has long suffered. The completion of the Honolulu Library and Reading Room Association Building, affords us great satisfaction. The Y. M. C. A. Hall, standing opposite, contributes to form a most commendable exhibition of the good taste and public spirit of the people of Honolulu. Most fortunately th,e two buildings are in such close proximity. The German Mt;tn of War. H. I. G. M's Frigate Prince Adalbert, arrived about 9 P. M. last Saturday and anchored oft port.

If our readers desire a pensketch of the Lyman home, presided over by him, whose death we now lamentingly r~cord, we refer them to the Rev. Mr. Chaney's ''Aloha." That home was the choice of the twelve so touchingly and beautifully described by Mr. Chaney, and we regret our narrow 1imits will not allow us to copy it. Mr. Lyman leaves a large circle of children and grand children to mourn his death, and keep in fresh remembrance his many virtues and excellences. He never could be induced to revisit his native land, and hence knew but little by personal inspection of rail-roads, steamboats and the wonderful improvements which have during the past century, been changing the charncter of the American people. His interest in the affairs of the age was kept up until the very last. Our pen refuses to stay in: its course, 6. Atheism is not only a non-recognition of the possibility of there being a God, but an absolute denial of his existence in any way whatever. As David says of the fool when he says in his heart, '·There is no God." Out of the horrors of unbeliefcome,as effects from causes, 7. Radicalism, which means the uprooting (radix) of all time-honoredinstitutions and customs of antiquity, andremodeling them with new ones,suited to the age of progress; for example, the revolution of the laws which have hitherto been marks of civilization, even to the confiiscation of all property and the leveliqg of society from the highest upward to the lowest downward. 8. Socialism and Communism, which assert that men have a common right to the things of this world, which are to be divided among them equally; and properly becomes a thing of naught. No man--has right to more than his neighbor-share and share alke-to be enjoyed equally by the industrious and "Hawaiian," "Bulletin" and "Guide," we are surprised at the amount of fresh reading matter daily published for the reading of the Honolulu public. Some items may be found the same in all, but the chief articles are all fresh and spicy, and many of them well written. The average is equal to the matter served up that comes to us, in the daily and weekly papers from abroad. PAPERS WANTED FOR DISTRIBUTION. Persons having copies of . Illustrated Christian Weekly and other .religious papers, are desired to send them to the Sailor's Home, and Mr. Dunscombe will most usefully dispose of them.

Henry Dimond was married to Anne Maria Anner, November 3rd 1834. • THE FRIEND, NOVEMBER, 1884 S6 • ARCTJC EXPLORATIONS. We have received from Charles W. Brooks, Esq. of San Francisco, a pamphlet of 18 pages relating to the most recent data, appertaining to tne numerous expeditions now pushing their way towards the North Pole. One fact of special interest is noted, viz, the relics of the ill-fated Jeannette have been found off the coast of Greenland. Supposing these articles can be fully proved as belonging to the Jeannette, then it follows that they must have drifted on the ice, a distance of "over forty-five hundred miles in one thousand and ninety-six days;" allowing for all the twists and eccentricities which the currents may be subject to. This -would give the floes an average time of about four nautical miles per day, which is just what took place." This phamphlet is accompanied by a map, indicating the present state of Arctic explorations. The scientific men of Europe and Ameri -i. appear more eager than ever to push forward explorations. One of these men exJlresses the opinion, that, "a knowledge of Arctic lands is an indispensible condition of determining the history of our globe." Two new expeditions are being fitted out, one from Denmark and one from Russia. This pamphlet will be interesting to all who are keeping themselves informed upon questions _relating to Arctic explorations. For San Francisco, per Mariposa, Oct 15.Rev.

Nothing in nature lives only for itself. The flower that blooms in the garden or on the mountain side exhibits what God can do as ·an artist and sweetens the air which man breathes. It lives not to itself. The Redeemer of men lived for others. He "went about doing good." He· lived to establish a kingdom. Young men, heartily and actively identified with this kingdom, are connected with the greatest and best cause on earth. For it is an everlasting kingdom ; more imperishable than sun, moon and stars ! THE VALUE OF TIME. There, on his solitary island, is the poor shipwrecked sailor. Years ago, after his misfortune, there passed a vessel that might have rescued him, but he lit no signal fire. How many times since has he thought of what that hour was worth ! "Youth is not rich in time, it may be poor ; part with , it as with money, sparing ; pay no moment but in purchase of its worth."-Gz'llett. ONE MAN'S INFLUENCE.
