TUESDAY, FEB. 12, 1880.
( Crowded out of Saturday's issue.)
The Government has been loudly
lauded for its economy. A gentle
man recently said to me, "1 am
fully with the Government in its
economical scheme of retrench
ment." Same here, said I. "Rut,"
said he, "you seem to imply that its
efforts at economy are all a sham ;
yet you cannot deny that it has used
the pruning-knife to good purpose."
Certainly, said I, you arc right; and
it has used the glue-pot at tho same
time the pruuing-knifc to cut off
and the glue-pot to stick on cut off
from one place and glued on to an
other. Will you prove to mc that
tho gluing on of tho superfluous
does not equal or exceed the prun
ing off of the unnecessary? and will
you assert that there has been no
pruning off of tho iieccssary in
order to glue on to the superfluous?
The gentleman suddenly recollected
that lie had an important business
engagement just at that moment, and
shot off like a streak of lightning.
The electric lights are intended to
be a light to lighten the streets of
Honolulu, and tho glory of tho peo
ple thereof. But it is an uncertain
light to the sable-minded inhabi
tants, and a glory which is liable to
disappear when most needed. The
motive power of the machinery that
generates tho light water is usu
ally credited with the responsibility
of withholding the light and causing
the people to grope in darkness.
The water has much to answer for.
Now, one question that troubles me
is this: Will that water ever per
form its part in connection with the
electric light any hotter than it has
done? It has had a good many
months to get broken in to the work
and seems about as intractable now
as at the beginning. Another ques
tion occurs: If the water fails to
keep CO or 70 lights in steady and
satisfactory service, how can it run
the largo addition projected? Again,
if there is ti deficiency of water in an
admittedly moist summer, how
about a dry season?
What is this we hear about scald
ing the Hawaiian Band of musicians
to Paris? A splendid idea. Wo
have nothing better to send, and
nothing so good, if we except sugar,
rice, coffee, and arrowroot. It is
even a debatable question whether
these products equal the band in
excellence. To advertise tho. coun
try abroad, everybody says is the
correct thing, and no kind of an ad
vertisement can be so effective in
creating an impression that we are
not a bad sort of people as sending
the band. So far so good. But
what are we to do without the band
for so long a period as it would re
quire to go to Paris, make a sufll
cient exhibition of itself, and return?
Wo should simply stagnate and die.
At the shortest the band would bo
gone three or four months, and
everybody knows that when it is
absent three or four weeks only, on
its annual vacation, we come near
to giving up the ghost. Three or
four months would see us dead and
buried. What then should wc gain
by being advertised abroad? Oh,
no, we don't want to be advertised
at the expense of our own existence
would rather he unknown than die
to bo known. Besides, how many
people would the band induce to
come here? If wo can show and
convince the people who go to Paris
that we have an unsurpassed cli
mate, scenery that cannot be seen
elsewhere, and natural wonders
which arc unequaled, they will,
some of them, come here to see and
and enjoy for themselves; but they
are not coming here to see and hear
the band, especially after having
seen and heard it in Paris. They
wouldn't need to come for that pur
pose : it would be nothing now to
them. Anyhow, I don't think we
can do without the band so long :
we prize it too much. Emma and
Thomas Squares would become gar
dens of weeds, the tourists that we
expect from tho United States within
the next few months, and the pas
sengers by tho Australian steamers
would all come and go and report
Honolulu a lifeless place which
everybody should avoid. What
good would that do us?
Those kind-hearted ladies and
gentlemen who amused Honolulu a
whole week with "Patience" have
much to answer for. During that
week their efforts were absolute
amusement, and if that had been
the end, pleasing memories would
have floated around us to the end of
life. But that was not the end: it
was only the beginning. The fruits
of their labors seem doomed to ap
pear and tlast forever in a way that
is a public and intoleiable nuisance.
"Patience" is in the mouth of every
body. All Honolulu is humming
and whistling "Patience." A young
urchin perched himself at raj tent
door the other night and started,
with the aid of a taro-patch fiddle,
"Will you marry me?" I lost no
time in marrying a ropesend to his
hack, without publication of banns
or allowing time for tho interposition
of objections. Thc same day a
hoodlum of the highest type stood
at Goldberg's corner, smoking a
two-cent cigar, making lewd re
marks about passers-by of the gen
tle sex, and at intervals whistling
"I'm an every day young man." If
you are, thought I, the fewer we
have of your breed the better. All
the young ladies in the place, in
cluding the school girls, insist that
they arc "love-sick maidens," and
pass their lime in singing "Love is
a plaintive song." It may be, but
"the song of the kitchen and the
cook-stove" is much rnoro interest
ing and entertaining to a
hard-working and hungry hus
band, Sago business men in
their ofllces hum to themselves,
"Oh, hollow! hollow 1 hollow! " and
"Long years ago." Tho first of
these is understood to refer to the
present condition of business, and
the second to the early days of the
reciprocity treaty and the money.
DAILY BULLETIN !
making whaling times. 1 have heard
of a young lady in church saying
"exactly so," when "amen" was the
proper word. Nobody knows whore
and when this thing is going to stop.
We shall next have Cabinet Minis
ters and Members of the House
muttering in their olllecs and in the
legislative hall, "I'm a political
sham," which everybody will admit
to be si wonderfully close approach
to the truth.
To enter into n discussion upou
the principles of good taste is only n
waste of time. What is nood taste
and what is not, is not determined
by legal enactment nor determinable
by mathematical rule. Taste is
largely a matter of education and
custom. The Chinese girl is proud
of a crippled foot, and her Euro
pean or American sister thinks she
looks lovely in the disfigurement of
a Grecian bend which remains in
view an hour after the lorcly damsel
has disappeared around the corner.
It is a matter of taste. Choose
cither. Each is equally ludicrous.
The ladies of ancient Rome applaud
ed the slaughter of living gladiators
from their fashionable seats in the
amphitheatre ; and T have seen la
dies in the boxes of modern theatres
wave their handkerchiefs when
Richard III has been run through
the gizzard and beautifully imitated
all kinds of interesting convulsions
and writhings, better adapted to the
dissecting-room of a hospital. Tasto
again, and the taste is pretty much
the same in either case. But it is
said to be refined and elevated taste
to have a liking for King Richard
and all that class of theatrical pro
duction, called "legitimate drama."
For my part, I would just as soon
spend the time in a slaughter-house.
A good comedy or clever farce that
appeals to my risibilities suits me
better. I know this is a vulgar
taste ; that is, I have heard so. Un
fortunately, however, I am in har
mony with the bulk of this claimed-b3--somc-to-be
"highly refined" com
munity in this one matter. We
agree. I am sorry for it, because the
Son of Ishtnael's greatest joy is to
be set against mankind, whom he
regards as a two-legged locomotiYc
hopelessly out of order, and to kick
up a shindy on all convenient and
inconvenient occasions. The proof
of our agreement may be found at
the Hawaiian Opera House. You
announce for there something of the
"legitimate" order, music or drama,
and you will find plenty of empty
chairs btolidly staring you in the
face; but when the "vulgar" class
of entertainment, a nigger show or a
burlesque, is provided, a crowded
house of enthusiastic auditors greets
the performers. Let us brag no
more of our cultured and refined
tastes, but candidly confess that we
arc only common people, with a de
cided tendency towards what is bqld
to be the "vulgar" class of public
