NEW ORGAN AT UNION
CHURCH IS A WONDER
The new organ ihat is being
erected in the Wailuku Union
Church, concerning which a brief
account was given last week, is
creating an unusual amount of in
terest. Many visitors to the
Church during the last ten days,
have been shown through the in
strument by Mr. J. K. Varnuin,
who came with the organ to erect
it. "Shown through" is the cor
rect expression for, to see the or
gan, and have it explained, one
has to go through the oak casing
and then directly into the organ
About two feet from the casing
is a small door into the interior of
the instrument. If there is no
wind pressure upon the organ, it is
an easy matter to go through this
outer door, but if there is pressure,
the visitor must first open with his
finger the leather valve in the
center of the door and so break the
vacuum caused by the five inch
A second inside door is entered
in the same way as the first door.
The visitor then finds himself in
the "universal air chest" which is
a unique feature of the Austin or
gan. It is properly called "uni
versal," for the air pressure is
absolutely uniform. This gives
the Austin organ another unique
advantage over other makes, for in
all the organs put out by the Hart
ford firm, the wind pressure upon
the pipes is uniform. In many
other organs the pressure is so
variable that the difference in the
quality of the response made is
noticeable even to an amateur.
The Austin organ is able to get
this uniform pressure by means of
two or three simple features which
the firm have introduced most suc
cessfully into their organs. In
fie first place, the big chest, which
is air tight, is the only portion of
the Austin organ from which wind
is available to the pipes. All the
pipes are immediately supplied
with wind from this chest. The
majority of organs have smaller
and separate tubes either of wood
or metal that carry the wind from
some chamber that is the basis of
supply of wind for the whole in
strument. Such' a basis of supply is usually
a bellows of larger, or smaller
capacity, as the individual organ
may need. In the organ at Union
Church, there is no bellows to sup
ply the organ with wind. It can
be easily seen that a bellows is not

needed with the apparatus described
Another feature of the Austin
organ that keeps the wind abso
lutely jteady is a set of springs in
an arrangement that resembles a
bellov B which goes the length of
the chest. This is blown back
against the wall by the five inch
wind pressure or by whatever pres
sure is called for by the particular
organ. As the organ is played
lightly, this pressure regulator is
driven flat against the wall and
the air valve from the blower is
almost shut. If the organ is play
ed with all the stops on, the regu
lator immediately expands and
opens up the valve to its full capa
city, and the regulator is again
fiat pushed against the wall of the
chest. In this way pressure on
the valves of the pipes is kept con
stantly the same under all condi
tions. ARRIVED SAFELY.
The new organ came well packed
and nothing was damaged. Forty
five crates, making nearly a car
load, came across the continent in
eighteen days from Hartford,
where the organ was made, to
San Fiancisco. In exactly five
weeks it was landed in the Church.
It was a surprise to find all the
woodwork in the instrument so
heavy. Many parts were twice,
and some were three times, the
thickness as seen in the majority
of organs in the States.
The portion of the organ called
the "swell," which is a box with
shutters covering three hundred
and five pipes, was constructed of
half inch material stuffed with an
inch and a half of sawdust. The
shutters are lined with thick felt.
The appearance of the organ is
most striking. The case -harmonizes
in its design and finish with
the furniture of the church. Fifty
six displayed pipes finished in
French leaf gold bronze fill the
front arch, and run back to the
wall from the first supporting pil
lar. The console is placed in
about the position of the reed or
Ran previously used by the Church
for services. The organist will
face the pulpit and the chair, A
platform the same height as the
floor of the console, has been
erected between the console and
the pulpit. This is made of Ohia
and will be furnished with a rail
ing to correspond with the other
The console of the organ is a
most interesting part. From the
back of it there run some four
thousand feet of lead tubing to the
various pipes and keys. All of
the apparatus of the organ will be
out of sight from the pews. At
the manuals the cheeks key pis
tons, the various couplers and
unisons with pedal accessories, can
be seen in addition to the keys on
the two manuals and pedal. The
electric switch for the current
which supplies the blower will be
arranged with a draw stop.
The pedal and manuals will be
electric lighted, and so also will be
interior of the orgaa.
In the Swell Organ are five
speaking stops of sixty-one notes
each and the Tremulant stop
Here are found the Geigen Princi
pal which is a violin Diapson stop
of remarkable sweetness. The
Rohr Floete or wooden flue stop,
the Harmonic Flute, the Oboe
Gamba and the Echo Salicioual
The Oboe is not a reed but a flue
stop, and one of the finest in the
organ. The Kcho Salicioual has a
decidedly reedy tone and is so soft
it can scarcely be heard when the
swell shutters are closed.
In the Great Organ, which con
tains two hundred and twenty-four
pipes are the Open Diapason, a
very rich toned stop; the Concert
Flute, which is a wooden stop; the
Gemshorn that adds brightness
and clarity to the whole organ, and
the Dulciaua. The latter has a
remarkably mellow tone that will
prove most satisfactory in the
music of the Church.
The Pedal Organ contains thirty
two Flute notes and the same num
ber of the Rumbling Bourdon,
which is a sixteen foot stop.
Twenty-six couplers and pistons
are to be set by Mr. Varnum as
desired for the first recital. These
together with the four accessory
pedal couplers make the organ of
practically the same value as if
twice as many stops had been
placed in it. The Austin devices
are most simple for accomplishing
the results desired by these com
binations, although to a novice
they seem most complicated.
H. P. BALDWIN'S MEMORIAL
As many Maui people know, the
new organ in the Wailuku Union
Church is the gift of the friends of
the late Hon. H. P. Baldwin, who
desired to place to Mr. Baldwin's
memory, a beautiful memorial.
The Maui Aid Association of which
he was the founder and life-long
president, was the recipient of
these gifts and with the approval of
the trustees and members of the
Union Church selected the organ
that the Austin Company of Hart
ford is now erecting.
The memorial is a most fitting
one, inasmuch as Mr. Baldwin was
a charter member of the Union
Church when it was incorporated
as a church on the tenth day of
October 1866, and organized into
an ecclesiastical body on January
15th, 1867, and remained a mem
ber until the Makawao Church
was organized some twelve years
later. He was always actively in
terested in the Church, and liberal
ly supported the movement toward
the new building when it was found
that it was needed, and promised
one of the first large donations to
ward the present edifice.
The Union Church has arranged
that after the organ is installed it
shall be played one hour each week
in addition to the regular services
of the Church. The time of these
weekly recitals will be arranged by
Miss Carrie E. Short, the Church
organist, and notice will be given
the public. The opening night
she will be assisted by Mr. A. B.
Ingalls, for many years organist
of the Central Union Church in
