Bishop, were made. One of the era- whole of the time the kava was being tors, who was a born poet, delivered a served. Meanwhile, the women rolled long, poetic oration, in honor of lcth Bmhcps, who are known to the Tcn- gans as Ilympe and Ttpasa. He had not one word of his poem, which was full of charming imagery, couched in the choicest language, written. Dr. Oiler, in replying, delivered an earnest and very inst'ructive address, after- wards saying grace. Then all the vict- uals. as apportioned, together with the other offerings, were taken away, and the kava was served with great cere- mony. An adjournment was made at this juncture until the afternoon, which was set apart for the holding of the games. The games commenced at two o'clock The performers, very quaintly and gracefully decked for the occasion, sat in a semi-circle of six groups cr choline having lulls or drums, which they used to accompany their singing. They be- gan by clapping their hands, and mak- ing very graceful gestures, and then they sang with great animation. Truly, it may be said, their countenances, their hands and their bodies speak. All the choir Look up the performance in turn, and the words of their songs were specially composed and learn1 for the present' celebrations. Refer- ences were made to the new Bishop, to his mission, and their warm wishes in his regard. There is no clapping to mark approbation in Tonga, but the word "Mallie" or bravo is spoken and repeated according to the enthusiasm of the audience. Two very interesting dances, one of them a warlike one, were given by the men. During t'he cigarettes, and after lighting them and having the first few puffs, they brought them to the guests. Everyone smokes in Tonga, men, women and even child- ren. As cculd not be finish- ed before nightfall, a postponement was made to the following afternoon, so the gathering dispersed, and every- cne went to their hcmes. All the performances to which I have only made brief allusion, were perfectly modest, as well as pleasing, and there was not the slightest disor- der, or any sign of intoxication. On the contrary, general good humor and joyousness prevailed throughout. The celebrations are to be repeated in all the Catholic centers, and I nearly for- got to mention that each of the vil-  lages help one another and share in the feasting. Nc other institution on earth but the Catholic Church can thus stir them up and brtng them usefully and happily together. The mission. aries, and Dr. Olier especially, are high. ly esteemed, and much beloved by the Tongans, and with further assistance from his apostolic mission, Dr. Olier will soon triumph over the Hydra of heresy. Ah'eady a whole section in Nukualofa have asked to be admitted to the Church. After the consecration cf Bishcp Olier, Cardinal Moran said to him "You are the fourteenth Bishop I have consecrated," and Dr. Olier replied: "I hope I will be the best cf them all," and may he be granted "Ad multos an- nee" to carry out his word and resolve.
