A HOMILY ON TASTE.
It is held by some to be the duty
of those who undertake to cater for
the public to sti ivo to fulfil the pub
lic wish. This is applied to pro
fessions, trades, business, callings,
and every line of enterprise depen
dent on public patronagfl for exist
ence. Others contend that where
it is optional with the public whether
they bestow or withhold their
patronage, it is also optional with
those who offer their knowledge,
' talents, or wares for what they con
eider a quid pro quo in cash, to en
deavor to please their patrons or to
be perfectly indifferent on that
score. But there can be no differ
ence of opinion on this one point,
that the public caterer will receive
public support in proportion to the
extent of his satisfying the public
taste. This is as true of tho btngc
actor and professional musician as
of the grocer and baker. Demand
.for an article is not neccssaiily
measured by the intrinsic goodness
of the article, but by public taste.
The really good and pure may beg
in vain for a recipient, while the
spurious is in large requisition.
Thus, a superior musical composition
or classical drama maybe leccived
with stolid indifference, while Yan
kee Doodle or a foolish farce elec
trifies the samo audience from
centre to circumference. It is a
matter of taste, and as taste is a
matter which has never been de
cided by the arts and sciences
every man has an undoubted right
to his own taste. As a matter of
fact the taste of the majority in
most communities is not in the direc
tion of tho classical, either in music
or drama. Through inability or
-unwillingness to recognize this
truth, some gifted public entertain
er! fail whore they might otherwise
succeed. If, for instance, instead
of playing lengthy complicated com
positions and singing fine operatic
selections in a language that is not
understood by the audience, short
pieces and pomdar songs in plain
English wero substituted, less would
bo heard about empty seats and
lack of appreciation. Of course, a
respectable minority admire and
prefer the classical, but the maj
ority do not. It has been said that
Honolulu is unlike other places
that the people are so cultured and
refined that high standaul music and
acting will always attract a crowd.
If so. whv should admittedly able
artistes sing and play to empty
chairs in our Opera House, while
Millis's manikins filled the Bamc
building from floor to ceiling night
after night? Honolulu people arc
pretty much like the people of
other towns, only that they may bo
a little more conceited on the whole,
and when they go to the Opera
House tho majority of them do so
to be amused and entertained ; and
faomcthmg light, humoious, and
varied is more to their tasto than
long-drawn, dull, wearying, bo
called classical productions. It will
bo well for any who may seek our
patronage in the musical or theatri
cal lino in future to bear this in
mind. By so doing they will find
less cause to complain of want of
Tho remark made a few days ago
by His Excellency tho Attorney
General that ho had witnessed tho
hula Boino twenty times, but had
been unable to detect any lascivious
features in it, would bo read witli
surpriso by thoso acquainted with
tho fact that tho printer of the
Coronation hula's programmo, was
fined 820 in tho Police Com t, for
violation of tho statute relating to
tho printing of vile literature Tho
printer in question must have been
Grieved, too, that the Attorney
General's certificate of propriety on
behalf of tho hula had not been
jssuod a few years carllor.

that the resolution had been satis

thought tho matter should be clear
ed up before the appropriations
were voted to the Interior Depart
ment. Minister Guliek &aid he had no
desire to withhold information, but
