JUDGE WILDER THROWS A PARTY
Amongst the news spoken of in Honolulu nei, is the party given by Judge Wilder at the Hotel New Willard; it was a party adorned with a great amount of food along with the beauty of the decorations.
In the very short time it was organized, there were many malihini who showed up at the party, and speeches were given by members of Congress who were invited.
In a majority of the speeches given, appreciation was mentioned for the kindness of Hawaii’s people for welcoming the group of Congressmen the previous summer.
In every speech given at the party, each speaker showed their intent to strengthen Hawaii nei as they are able to in the legislature.
One of the things that brought on laughter at the party was that Representative Kuhio was invited to speak in Hawaiian, and his speech was to be translated by Senator Hardwick, and due to his inability, Kuhio spoke entirely in English.
On the menu prepared, everything was written in Hawaiian, and is as seen below:
