THEATRICALS IN HONOLULU.
A correspondent of tho AuMralti
nian writes, as follows, anont thing'!
theatrical in Honolulu.
Would you like to know how
things theatrical are done in Mid
Pacific? lien, last mouth Ilerr
Bandmauu wn- a through passenger
by the Paoilic mail to Frisco; but
some daring spirit in our midst per
suaded him to stay here and try his
luck for a month. The u-sitlt has
been that our usually decorous so
ciety has been swept over by a wave
of dissipation fearful to contem
plate. Perhaps you do not know that wc
have heie one of the most perfect
little theatres in the world. The
Ilerr went into raptures over it, said
it surpassed the Melbourne Bijou ;
but then he was looking forward to
a month's stay amongst us, and the
Ilerr is mi tlijilomitte. Neverthe
less, the few of us who still sigh for
the flesh-pots of Egypt, arc proud of
our theatre. It was built by a com
pany alas, poor company! cost
880.000, holds 800 persons, and is
perfect iu every detail, all modern
improvements (if ventilation, seats,
&c, while the scenery, painted by a
special San Francisco artist, is com
plete, and beautiful enough to satisfy
even a Melbourne critic, but alas,
that 1 must tell it this charming
temple of the gods is tabooed, and
for ten months out of every twelve
is given up to dust and desolation.
Pourquoi? Because Honolulu so
ciety is too pious to support u legiti
mate company of actors. The old
missionary spirit still smoulders, and
n literary re-union, or a concert
given by the elite for a charitable
object, is the most daring height to
which wo ever soar.
Maccabc stayed over a few months
ago, gave two or three entertain
ments, and went on with his profits ;
Bandmnim has played two nights a
week for a month, and goes on with
a little haul, just at tho right mo
ment. Another performance and he
had been "Tho Man who Didn't
Luugh." Neither Maccaho nor
TJandman -was under any great ex-
pense, no extra passage rates, uo
regular company to pay, result
profit. Now for the rcvcr.se side.
Three companies have ventured down
at different times from the Stales.
The first opened the theatre and did
well, lite two following had to be
helped back by public subscription". '
"With the HciT was of course In
petite Louise, also Mr. Clias Lofo
bctt, in addition to which he was
(supported, as one of our dailies
neatly put it, "by the best local ta
lent available:." He put on "Ilnni
let," "Merchant of Venice," "Kip
Van Winkle," "Corsicau Brothers,"
"Woman of the People," "East
Lynne," &c, interspersed with Seve
rn farces. The hit of the season
was "Niircisse," given for the bene
fit, of the library fund. The Ilerr
behaved splendidly, didn't even
quarrel with the newspaper's, and
only kicked the property man down
stairs once, which, of course, does
not count. The City of Sydney
beamed out of the harbor last Mon
day, and on board were Miss Beau
dct, Ilerr Bandnuin and Mr. Lobbctt,
taking with them Ihc hearty good
wishes of their friends in Honolulu.
Vague rumours of an invasion by
a compauy from the Coast reach us,
but we arc deaf to the voice of the
charmer. Wc arc surfeited with too
much glare, and sigh again for that
vernal freshness that could insist
upon iincorcs at tin amatcui concert,
while it invested an ice-cream social
with a spice of naughtiness that was

joke. "One of our local amateurs
who was really distinguishing him

on by a deputation from the church.

EICHT HOURS A. DAY.
Fimtok Bullltik: I sec that the
Saturday Press speaks rather dis
paragingly of the eight hour move
ment. L have heictoforc looked upon
that paper, as one for reform, as it
lias ever been calling loudly to the
(i nvcrnment for . -Mich measures. That
is well : but why speak against indi
vidual reform? I have known indi
viduals as well as corporations, to
put their help on three quarter time
and pay at, the same rate, and all
this without consulting their neigh
bours, or the press. Suppose the
man of the S. P. should happen to
think that perhaps he ought to pay
bis help more per day ; according to
his theory he would be obliged to
consult hU ueiglibouis and stir up
their minds to the idea, then ho
must wait for them to decide, (which
might take monlhs) and of course to
the injury of the employee. I have
increased the wages of nearly every
man in my employ. I consider that
haste lias been made slowly for the
advancement of our fellow beings, 1
havo thought the matter over for a
long time and have come to the con
clusion that in a climate like this,
eight hours hard labor is enough, out
of twenty-four, and now, after one
week's experience I am fully satis
lied that there is no great loss iu the
amount of labor performed. The
hour that has been given, gives them
more time to read and more time for
sleep ; that means more rest for the
brains as well as the body. Those
who look to the elevation of their
fellow beings ought to read the
Gazette, of last week, it highly re
commends more time for rest and
recreation. N. F. Bunr.r.ss.
