Maui Boys as Seen by
N. Y. Sun's Correspondent.
Franklin Mathews, correspondent
of the New York Sun, on board the
battleship Louisiana lias written the
following as a result of his stay in
Lahaina last month where he and the
officers were frequent guests of Cap
tain W. E. Bal of Company I, First
Infantry and Captain R. II. Dincgar,
Wailuku Detachment Hospital Corps
Well, Lahaina outdid itself. Noth
ing was too good for the boys. There
was dancing when night eamo and
illumination and singing. You don't
know what singing is until you hear
it here, where the first note of the
human voice in song must have been
heard. Every one can sing in Ha
waii. They dance to song. The
natives bring their own instruments
nnd re-enforce them with guitars,
mandolins and violins all of which
they play by ear, for few Hawaiians
can read modern music and they
strike off a few bars and then break
into song. While the song lasts you
dance, and when it stops and the
instruments keep on you rest. Then
comes the vocal seduction again, and
off you go with flying feet.
The Hawaiian songs run to har
mony rather than mere melody, and
Catholic Ladies Dance .
A Grand Success.
The cantata and dance given by
the Catholic Ladies' Society at the
Knights of Pythias Hall last Satur
day was a grand success.
A farce was given by local young
ladies, which was a source of much
mirth. Rev. Ault sang "My Rosary"
and was ns usual, well received.
Mrs. J. J. Carey made her first
appearance as a singer netorc tne
local public and was loudly applaud
The concert ended with a cantata
ntitlcd: "Fairyland" in which
twenty young ladies of Wailuku
took part. The acting and singing
were very much appreciated by the
nidience and so was tho tableau at
the conclusion of the cantata. The
young ladies formed in a group, the
lights were turned off the stage and
very low in tho main hall, and red
fire was burned making the sight a
magnificent one. Then followed the
dance which was enjoyed until a
there is no well sustained theme in
them. Tho singers glide from one
harmony delicious chords they are
into another.- The timbre of the
voices can be heard only in the
Pacific islands. And when the na
tives pour out these voices there
comes a blend of notes such as no
chorus of Anglo-Saxons could make.
The voices are light they run to
tenors a great deal but there is
such supurb balancing of tone in
chorus music as to resemble a church
organ under a master's hand more
than anything else. But there is
more than that in them. The music
has a living soul. When a sad piece
is sung the sadness enters into the
singers' hearts. They close their
eyes. A sigh comes from their lips
with the harmony. When they open
their eyes there is a mist in them.
When they sing rollicking music
their eyes dance with their stamping
feet. Their music is heart-laden.
MUSIC IN DREAMLAND.
And if you wish to' enjoy this
music at its best you should have
spent an evening in the military
camp, where the boys were just the
ordinary singers of the people, and
n6t selected voices, such as make up
the quintet clubs all over the islands,
and you should have lnin on the
sward, as we did, that first night in
Lahaina. The moon came over the
black eastern hills and then mellow
ed things, through the shimmering
palm tree leaves. The water rippled
into the beach nnd added the poetry
of the gentlest seas to the occasion.
Thesoldier boys twanged the in
struments for a minute or two and
then came a sweet, soft gliding from
chord to chord of these rich vocal
organs, and well, you were in
What did you care for the sky
scrapers and the hurry of .business
life or tho strife for wealth? What
did you care for operas and great
singers? You even ceased to think
of homo and loved ones, and you
now began to understand why often
these islands so enchant the traveler
that ho goes no further and spends
the rest of his days here. And when
these singers poured out the songs,
part in Hawaiian and part in En,
glish, so that you got some of tho
poetry that was in their souls, you
were sure that you had lost some of
the sweetest things in life by not
coming nere ueiore. um nan
tation" was one of the songs that
got under your skin and touched
THE GOOD NIGHT SONG.
Oh, no; it wasan't a coon song;
it was a collection of harmonies that
would soften tho meanest grouch
that any man, no matter who, over
had. It just took hold of you from
your toes to your hair tips and. made
you feel kindly toward all the world.
It brought sighs to your lip and
made you think that gentleness and
sweetness were in the world as its
choicest factors, and that you had
never known their full depths be
fore. Over and over again you made
the boys sing it.

two of the gamblers, who barred the
door behind him. Meanwhile tho
others left their games and pressed

Realizing that a bold front was
the only thing which would save him
from injury, Mr. Roberta singled out
the proprietor, whoVemained on the
outskirts of the group, and proceed
ed to scold him roundly for break
ing his Christian vows and the laws
of Korea by conducting such a re
sort. As he continued the Korean
became thoroughly ashamed of him
self, and his fellow gamblers, under
standing that the missionary did
not come to spy upon them, began
to enjoy tho discomfiture of their
host. The young missionary's
bravery won the admiration of the
crowd and they not only shook
hands with him all round, but when
he left they delegated one of their
number to act as his guard and guide
through the i i 1 quarter of the town.
Asa result of that expedition, the
Korean shut up his gambling den
nnd returned to the Church.
