Commander Pinto-Ilasto of Portugal’s cruiser San Gabriel, now in
port, called on Governor Frear this morning between ten and eleven
o’clock, and was received in the manner due his rank.
He was conducted through the historic chambers and corridors of
the once palace and now executive building, or eapitol, and objects of
interest were pointed out to him by Portuguese Consul Canavarro,
who is always an inimitable entertainer and descriptionist, and
Commandant Corwin P. Rees of the U. S. naval station here.
The throne room was. visited, and the portraits of past kings and
queens of the islands were viewed in both throne room and in the
upper hallway of the territorial mansion:
Gold-braided and white-suited, the commander of the first Portu
guese man-of-war to visit Honolulu, took in all that he saw with much
The HaAvaiian band w.ns stationed in the grounds, and Ilerr Mer
ger, who has led the band at every important function in the last gen
eration in Hawaii, was on hand with his baton to lead oil” the Portu
guese national anthem, and to delight the assembled crowd, number
ing almost eighty people, exclusive of the band.
Boninc, the moving-picture man, was stationed at the portal of the
“palace” to catch the distinguished visitor, going and coming, also
catching the chauffeur who operated the machine which conveyed the
Commander, the Consul, and Admiral Kees.
The reception by Governor Frear was simple and in accordance
with his prohibition ideas. No champagne was served. Governor
Carter, it will be remembered, served champagne 011 such occasions.
The music of the band was enjoyed at a great distance. People in
the judiciary building quit their work to enjoy the concert.
It must bo remembered that, on account of the death of King Ed
ward of England no balls, or social doings or pleasure functions will
be indulged in by the officers i.t the San Gabriel for the period of
three days after their arrival. The first “doings” will he on Friday,
when the band will turn out again and the Portuguese school-children
will entertain the commander.
Possibly, on that day, if admission can be arranged, the officers of
the San Gabriel will be taken to the Bishop museum. This afternoon
they will be shown the town.
