To the Public.
There seems to lie disseution in the camp, in reference
the locality of the Musical Hall Building. It is cer
tain that if built central it will meet the wishes of a
large majority of the public. It is said by some far Bee-
ing people that in a few years (say 2?) that King Street
above the Government House will be the chief centre of
the city, so far so good; probably by that time we shall
have street cars and omnibuses to drop us at the so called
Academy of Music. But what can accommodate those
living in the valley and remote parts. I have been con
nected as proprietor, lessee and manager of places of
amusements since lHAt, Honolulu since 185t! to 69 and
from that period, three theatres in San Francisco and in
tlier parts of the Pacific anil Atlantic Mates, Mexico
England, &c. I have planned and managed the building
of places of amusement and always with a view to ele
gance, comfort, ventilation aud good entrances ana
exilts (most essential!. Since my departure from these
Islands, in April I8-9, nearly 21 years, I have devoted
myself to this special art, visited the interior, stage and
mechanism of the Paris Grand Opera House and Covent
Garden Theatre Loudon and others too numerous to
mention ; upon my return last November, I was told I
had just returned in the nick of time (in fact I might
have dropped from the clouds) as they were going to
reet a building suitable for amusement purposes, ac
cordiugly I was invited to give my idea in tbe shape of a
lau (which I hope may prove satisfactory; l win say lor
one as a shareholder, that I would like to see tne Dunn
ing central and that two stories ronld be added to the
same, giving a revenue independent of the amusement
portion of the edifice. 1 do not wish to" be considered
ain when I state that 1 am able to commence a Dunning
from its foundation to putting in a first class company.
Hoping I have not said too much and spoken in opposi
tion to a few leading this movemeut.

Criminal Carelessness. An employee in the
store of Mr. A. W. Bush, the grocer, on Fort Street,
and known by tbe distinctive appellation of Smith,
showed the amount of brains he possessed by tying a
saddle horse that he had been uing to an empty
barrel which stood on the sidewalk near tbe front of
tbe establishment of bis employer, - Through some
movement of tbe horse, tbe b irrel upset and rolling
under that animal's feet, frightened him, and he
dashed up through Fort Street, at a breakneck pace,
the barrel bounding along at bis side. A milk wag
on was the first vehicle encountered, and tbe shock
disabled it, while the driver made a flying leap for
the sidewalk. The crazed horse with the barrel still
at his heels passed so close to the carriage of Chief
Justice Harris, as to frighten the horses attached and
tbey also started on a run. The short turn made by
them in going around the corner of Fort and Hotel
streets upset tbe carriage. The horse did not stop
but continued to drag tbe upset carriage on its side.
Luckily assistance was given by some bystanders,
who after stopping the horses extricated the occu
pant of the carriage. Chief Justice Harris, from bis
dangerous position. The horse with tbe barrel ac
companying him kept along Fort Street, but caused
no further damage. Tbe fact that no ladies or child
ren were hart, or that no further damage occured
does not relieve the odium attached to so careless,
negligent, and brainless an action as tying a horse to
an empty barrel on one of tbe piincipal streets in the
city. Tbe action merits a severe punishment. The
aOair to which we have here briefly referred occurred
on Thursday last.
Homicide at Kaiai. As one of the prob.iM" re

named Thomas Williams, for the avowed
purpose of having a fight. In the struggle, Wil

Williams had murdered him. The latter is now in
prison under commitment for murder, and will be

three wounds under tbe right arm, one each on tbe

The Theatre The much talked of, end long
rehearsed, "Pinafore," was produced at tbe Theatre,
for the first time in this country, and by the Oayton
Combination Company, on the evening of last Satur
day, the 14th inst., to a crowded house and in tbe
presence of II is Majesty and Suite. The play of
"Pinafore" is of the. opera bovffe style, and was
written as a satire ou the manner in which positions
and promotions were obtained, at one time, in the
English Navy. Pinafore has hud an unprecedented
run in Eastern cities, and many ofthe expressions
found io tbe score bad become popularized to that
extent as to become monotonous. The rendition by
tbe U ay ton Combination, is pleasing, aa a novelty.
but as a representation of the spirit in which the
play was written, is very incomplete. Tbe Admiral
it made a buffoon, by a natural actor of that charac
ter, none of the official dignity eonsistent with tbe
position being understood, or mtroduced. The make
up of this personage is also outre, not alone In age,
but also in tbe absence of tbe distinctive parapher
nalia which adorns an Admiral. Tbe Captain is too
youthful, and lacks action. Josephine is lo tbe
bands of a good singer, but a poor actress. Butter
cup, as delineated by Miss Ingles, Is fair, the concep
tion being good, but tbe acting lacks life. Mr
Bradley's voice stands bim in good stead, as Lick
Deadeye. Mr Morton as llalph lUckstraw, has an
important part and performs it in a manner that
shows study. Tbe sisters, cousins and aunts perform
their parts well, especially in tbe choruses. Little
Harry, as Midsbipmile, is a general favorite. Tbe
localization in the Admiral's song, composed by Mr.
Frank Perkins, would be a feature if sung as written
at each performance. The musical portion of the
piay under direction of Mr. Berger le well rendered,
and many of the nirs sre fast brcoming popularised.
Ouly a few more representations of the play will be
given, so prospective visitors should not delay too I
long To-night Pinafore will again hold forth.

To the Elitor of the Pacific Uuiata. cud Advertiser :
Dear Sir. I wish to state the following facte.
through your valuable paper. In many places
throughout the Islands, it is a common custom to
place tbe bodies of the dead in little wooden bouses
n the cemeteries; as if in defiance of tbe Supreme
command,' "Dust thou art, and unto dust thou
shalt return." Some of these houses contain four
or five putrefying bodp-a in badly made wooden oof-
fins. 1 be foul emanations, from these decomposing
corpses are daily poisoning Cod's pure, life giving
atmosphere, and filling it wttb germs of death. A
ady told me this wetk, that she bad occasion to at
tend a funeral at oue of these " wbited sepulchres "
where the stanch was almost unbearable. Is this a
subject too trivial for consideration? One oi our
ableet physicians tells me "that air is best for health
which has no perceptible tin til about it tics versa, '
but I suppose he means theoretically. If we regard
putrefaction in a sanitary or hygieuio point of view,
as the origiuator of disease, when favored by man's
carelessness, such a subject deserves our attention.
Yours respectfully, Pck AlB.
