The reception held at the executive building was a great success, and was in many ways a marked contrast with 
those which were held in the palace under the monarchy. There was no stiffness, but an atmosphere of free and 
democratic good fellowship prevailed. The people came in freely, in their every morning dress, and were received 
by President Dole and Mrs. Dole, with the Vice-President, the members of the cabinet, and the members of the 
supreme court and their ladies, and also Judges Cooper and Whiting of the circuit court. Immediately behind the 
President wore the officers of his staff, Col. J. H. Super, Limit. Col. Fisher, and Maj. McLeod. Maj. Potter 
introduced the guests. Mrs. Dole was also assisted by the following ladies: Mrs. C. L. Carter, Mrs. Iaukea, Miss 
Hopper, Miss Lowrey, Miss Parke, Miss Perry, Miss Von Holt, Miss Mossman, Miss Gilman, Miss Judd, Miss 
Wing, Miss Forbes, Miss Jones, Miss Hartwell, Miss Mott-Smith, Miss Helen Wilder, Miss Lita Wilder, the Misses 
Young. Miss Glade, Miss Atkinson, Miss Paty, Miss McGrew, Miss Hassinger, Miss Sorrenson, Miss Hatch, Miss 
Tanner, Miss Afong, and Miss Howland.

with which flower also many official button holes were adorned. The stream of people came in double file and 
flowed unceasingly from 11 o'clock until 10 minutes of 12, after which it began to intermit. The halls and verandas 
of the executive building, as well as the council chamber, were thronged. Among those who called to pay their 
respects to the President and his wife were a considerable number of Hawaiians. One old native from Manoa Valley 
presented Mr. Dole with a large bouquet. The incident was a very pretty and affecting one, and excited much
