Yosemite Skating Rink 7.

The Faiini opera troupe aic in all
probability by Hits time safe at home
in their adopted land. Tlicie bliould,
therefore, be uobieaeliof hospitality
involved in a discussion of their
visit, parlieulatly with regard to the
reception accorded them and the
reputation they left behind them.
This paper has been hotly assailed
by a contemporary for having uttcied
a very moderate criticism of the first
appearance of the company, and
publishing a rather sharp letter upon
that event. This is not very sur
prising, for our ficc expression of
public opinion was in such marked
contrast to the extravagant and in
discriminate pulling of the company,
indulged in by that journal, that it
became a matter of self-defence with
it to discredit the remarks of this
paper and the public sentiment sug
gesting them. The case only afforded
the public an opportunity of judging
of the difference between a journal
that expresses independent views and
public opinion without fear or favor,
and one whose only aim is to please
all and offend none, like the owner
of the ass in the fable. And, like
that worthy's ca&e, the end is that
nobody is pleased, while the ass is
engulfed in the Avatcrs of oblivion.
An examination of the facts in the
case will convince any candid poison
that the Farini opera company got
off only too easily from public criti
cism. Signor Farini came to Hono
lulu and offeied, for certain consid
erations, to bring down from the
Coast a high-class opera company,
lie submitted a list of aitists to the
people, engaging to bring those
named to Honolulu in an organized
opera company, provided the finan
cial terms were fulfilled. Tlio ic
quircct amount was, on the strength
of his representations, subsciibcd
with a readiness that was lcmaik
ablc in view of the depressed state
of business. When the company
arrived, it was found to contain only
one of the artists engaged to be
brought, and it was found to be on
the whole a very oi dinary and poorly
adjusted conceit troupe. The first
performance disgusted many, if not
most, of the subscribers to the
guarantee fund. Making the most
liberal allowance for the amount of
good siuging comprised in the enter
tainment, the fact remained that
they had paid for a high-class opera
company and obtained a troupe of
musicians hastily picked up about
the concert halls of San Francisco,
who had all their practice together
ahead of them when they landed on
our shore. Succeeding performances
and rehearsals, with the stimulus of
v. a musical opinion more cultivated,
' infinitely, than the organizer of the
' company counted upon, induced an
improvement that was very obvious
when the season was half over. Still,
tit the best, the company only pres
ented two singers worth going out
' to hear, and one instrumentalist who
could captivate the popular car.
"Vitli regard to the pitiful failure
of the benefit tendered by some
person or persons unknown to the
public, to the star artist of the com
pany, two or three observations are
, in point. In the 111 at place that
affair proved that this community
" cannot bo led by tho'-iiosc at tho
sweet will of any coterie that may
assume to ho " Wo the peoplo of
Honolulu." A majority of the sub
scribers to the fund would havo
been tho legitimate promoters of tho
event in question. Tho result would
eeem to show that it was only au
effort of (be few paid footers of the
whole enterprise, to wheedle the
community, on tho cvo of tho com
pany's departure, into acknowledg
ing that tho season had given general
pleasiue and satisfaction. It is a
matter of deep l egret that tho gen
tleman, whose tulcnls chiefly rc
deenicd tho troupe from a vet diet of
total failure, should have been made
the victim of such a bungling ar
rangement. The most obviously
essential moans for obtaining an
audience wcie neglected by the en
gineers of the benefit. It is safe to
3:13 that a largo majority of the
community were not awaic that
evening that the conceit would be
proceeded with. Thcie had been
doubts genoially entertained that the
movement would obtain sufficient
support to justify the opening of
Music Hall. Yet the promoters did
not deign to take measures for en
lightening the public, except to a
very limited extent and that remote
in point of time, regarding their
decision. Had they informed us at
any moment up to three o'clock, that
tho concert was really going to be
held, we .should have given the news,
even conlraiy to business principles,
without charge, to about everybody
in Honolulu whom they would desire
to have notified. As it was, the
Buu.rrrx had not a lino about the
event, and probably that fact led the
people to believe that the project
had been abandoned.
In conclusion, we believe the
Honolulu public will sustain us in
saying that the Farini opera .season
was a dismal failure, and that tho
undoubtedly good individual talent
it comprised, will not serve to hide
the disparity between the lavish pro
mises and the incagie performances
in the case. If, however, the result
will make the community more shy
of "pig-in-bag" schemes for get
ting its money, then Signor Farini
will prove to have been a public
SOME SHARP TRUTHS.
Emtok Bulletin: Your " hard
times and why" article strikes a
soft place in this community. Peo
ple are always ready to attribute
their troubles to something extrane
ous rather than to themselves. TTo
doubt, there arc many good people
in this country who feel the pres
sure of hard times, against which
they have not been in a position to
prepare ; but there arc many others
who have had every opportunity to
provide for the reason of drought
that arc in no better position than
the class first refeited to. They
have gathered a rich harvest, and
wasted the crop in extravagant, if
not riotous, living. AH such people
should bemoan their own improvi
dent folly and determinedly resolve
to avoid a repetition of the past,
rather than bewail the hard times
of the present. "Who that has any
acquaintance with Honolulu and
uses his own eyes can deny that we
arc vulnerable to the charge of ex
travagance!1 Just look at the horses,
carriages, gaj furniture, &c, in
possession of those whose incomes
do not warrant so high a style of
living! Einploj'ees, whether in the
public service or the service of pri
vate individuals, are, as a rule, well
paid here sullicicntly well paid to
enable them to guard against hard
times and a reduction of revenue, if
they exercise a little economy. A
little less horse and buggy and a
little more pedal exercise, fewer
cocktails and more plain water, a
little less aping of the aflluent in
general and a little more living within
their proper sphere, would put peo
ple in a position to be less troubled
about hard times when they come.
It is a disgrace for young men, and
old ones too, in good health and
regular employment, drawing their
pay weekly, fortnightly, or monthly,
to be in debt to tradespeople and
others. Let them bo content with
plain living, and they will find no
dilllculty in paying their way and
providing for a " rainy day."
DOCS AND DOGS.
Kduok Bulli;tin: I read your
article on the usefulness of some
dogs and the worthlessncss of others
(than dogs) with satisfaction. This
is, a dog-cursed community, Thero
arc more worthless dogs here than
there is occasion for, to say the
least. Thcieare many good ones,
too, else wo should hear of more
burglaries, chicken stealing, etc.,
as tho thieves know where tho good
dogs are. Time was when raids
wero made on dogs, notice being
given to the natives in advance, and
when the taxes were all paid, out
came the guardians (?) with the
lasso, and for a week or tw o dogs
wero as scarce as policemen are
now, at night. But for the last
three or four years they have been
let alone, and mtch curs; afllictcd
with the most loathsome diseases,
which arc contagious to the human
rfinaawrwwr riw.iitf inwiinyiriiTTiiiiwppniPffyw irnjnmwa
as well as the bruto creation ; and
they arc allowed to roam at large,
enrrying their diseases everywhere.
Tho owners of good and valuable
dogs, for which they pay tho tax,
arc afraid to allow their animals
out9ido of their enclosures for fear
of contagion, while hundreds of tho
mangiest rotten brutes arc special
pets of thu police, as well as of
hundreds of the natives. The writer
had a very valuable and rare dog
brought here from a long distance
at great expense. It escaped from
the house, affiliated with some of
the many curs about town, con
tracted au incurable disease, and
was obliged to be killed. There
was no cure for the disease. This
is only one instance of many. No
owner of a good and valuable dog
objects to paying tho tax, but cer
tainly we should be protected, and
the thousand and one mangy curs
should be expelled. All other dis
eased animals arc strictly attended
to. "Why nrc the dogs allowed to
spread mange, itch, and icorsc dis
eases. 1 hope, sir, you will "keep
this before the people," until sow
one, who is in authority, will take
the responsibility of clearing this
town of one of its greatest nuisances.
The dog tax ought to be changed.
Owners of dogs should pay, say one
or two dollars a year, but owners of
bitches, five or ten, as in other
