omit a record of our thanks to our
admired and oatoomod sonsgtress,
now welcome- back to hor untiro
land Miss Aunts Montnguo and
to til" accomplished company of
Indios and ientlenuii whom sho
has summonetl round her, in
honor of tho interesting inaugural
occasion, for tho beautiful opera
tic performance of which wo havo
witnessed tho first act.
"1 hope, ladies and gentlemon,
that, however fonbly, 1 mny havo
not unsuccessfully expressed your
feelings towards Mr. mid Mrs.
Irwin and their coadjutors in tho
gift of this theator."
Mr. Irwin arose in his box and,
after receiving rounds of applause,
replied as follows to Mr. Walker's
"Ladies and Gentlemen: -"When
tho eventful ovouiug came round
for the opouing of this Opera
llo;irt iiutl L had th" pleasure of
opening its doors to tho people of
Honolulu, I thought that my
labors were about completed. But

audience induce mo to return the
most cordial thanks, for Mrs.
Irwin and myself and for my
pnrtneis -Mr. J. D. Spreokels
and Mr. Adolph Spreckels to
you tor the kind words of appre
ciation expressed on your bulmlf
by Mr. Walker. If any of you do
not know the trouble of starting a
theater, I should ndviuo you to
try it, but tor all the worry and
expense incurred 1 havo been ro
warded by tho prosa aud tho
public in general. 1 must parti
culaily thank the ladies aud
gentlemen who have spent many
weeks in preparing this beautiful
opoia. 1 cannot say much more

half of Mrs. Irwin aud mysolf and i
Messrs. bpreckols, for tho kind
ovation with which you havo
greeted tho inauguration of this
place of amtiiomeut." (Loud
In tho second act Mrs. "W. W.
Dimond makes her first appear
ance in this opra, hor part being
Azucena, tho gipsy woman. Hor
makeup was a triumph in itself,
but the audience was completely
led CM,)i.- when, ill dllkv t Uotee,
she sang hor first song, "Upward
tho Flames Roll," with the gipsy
bund gathered niouiul hor. Mrs.
Dimond gavo a splendid histrio
nic exhibition, in tho dialoguo
held in the dungeon, between
Manrieo and Azucona, when the
latter uttora the frantic passage:
"One morning fierce crowds as
sembled, soized my mother and
led her to torture" It could not
have been better acted and sung.
It would bo impossible, in tho
spaco at disposal, to detail all tho
good points of tho company's per
formance. Miss Montague sim
ply put expectations buck to the
small eiid of tho tolescope,
with such sustained vocal
strength and sweetness did
sho carry to tho last tho arduous
part of Leonora. Her stage busi-net-B
was beyond criticism as that
of tho accomplished artist who
can conceal art.
For an initial performance tho
chorus many of whom had never
faced u largo audienco before
is entitled to groat praise. Prof.
Berger directed tho orohostra iu a
mnstorly mnnuor, its work boing
without discorniblo fault. Grand
opeia, it is well shown, need not
bo abaudoned in Honolulu for
want of orjhodrnl support.
After tho curtain fell on tho
third act tho sconic artist was call
ed to the footlights, and in res
pinno to a hearty reception by tho
audienco Mr. Portor delivered this
"Ladies and Gentlemen: It is,
I hope", with pardonable feelings
of pri'le that 1 attempt a response
to your generous acceptance of my
humble efforts to promote tho in
terest for theatrical taste in your
city. It is a well-known fact that
ladies and gentlemen of refined
and cultured tastes in Honolulu
huve long desired a fitting place
in which to enjoy tho drama, a
temple of the muses, which shall
bo a credit to your beautiful city,
alike suitable to such an audienco
and really very clever talent, as
hero greet each other tonight.
This you now have, thanks to Mr.
William G. Invin, whoso liborali
ty aud interest iu tho public wol
faro have, with a lavish hand,
caused this beautiful tomplo to bo
more elegautly prepared for your
comfort and nleasuro than can bo
found anywhero on tho Pacific I
Coast. To him tho citizons of .
Honolulu owo a debt of gratiludo
which should bo recoguized by a
most liberal aud appreciative
patronage. As for mysolf, I
hoartily thank him, who has thus
enabled mo by elaboration, to
throw into my efforts a spirit of
enthusiasm iu tho scenic work
displayed aud to bo displayed to
you this ovoning, and I confess 1
have given my best endeavors to
not only plonso tho eyo but to ou
nogo the mind as well, with an
ideal (pointing to tho curtain), tho
study of which, 1 hope, will bo
both pleasing and profitable.
Tlmnktng all my associates for
tho uniform kindness I have re
ceived at their hands, and once
more thanking you, ladies aud
gentlemen, 1 wish you all an
ominont and enjoyable succoss."
There was no extravagant dres
siness marking tho apparel of tho
ladies in general. Quiet, light
costumes suitable to tho climate
constituted the predominating
feature. Evoning dress was tho
rule with gentlemen.

ENAAELED IRON PORTA
BLE BATH TUBS
There is a certain highly
respected citizen of Honolulu
who has a fondness for rice
pudding. He has indulged
this fondness to such an in
ordinate degree that he has for
years indulged in a cold rice
pudding upon his return home
from his lodge. When he was
going to be out ' more than
usually late he would tell his
good wife and the cold pud
ding was always left on the
sideboard for him. The other
night he was kept out later
than usual at a Masonic ban
quet, but on returning home,
in the dim light left burning
low, he spied his favorite dish
and ate the contentsF-he
next morning his wife missed
seven lace collars she had left
in the starch over night, and
she is now threatening to sue
for limited divorce, not be
cause of the loss of her collars
but because her husband says
that they tasted just like her
best puddings. However, the
husband has made his peace
with his better half and there
will be no divorce, unlesss it
The way he did it was to
go to the Hawaiian Hardware
Company's store and order
one of their recently imported
Enameled Iron Portable
Bath Tubs sent home. His
good wife was so pleased that
she forgave him on the spot.
These bath tubs must be seen
to be appreciated. They are
the handsomest yet put on the
market and they are not very
expensive. Being raised from
the floor on legs like a stove
no moisture can accumulate
underneath to attract cock
roaches and beetles. These
tubs are provided with hand
some nickel-plated fittings.
To go with them we have
imported specially some nickel-
double bath cocks for

Much of the solid silver
ware us:d in Honolulu is
bought, in San Francisco by
people visiting there becauso
it is cheap.
Twonty-fivo per cent doty
is a great deal too much to
pay and it tempts people to
make purchases while they are
where thoy may buy. it
chcapor. There is nothing
criminal iu tho transaction,
just a bit of practical econ
omy. There would have been
no necessity for these buyers
to go abroad, if dealers were
willing to divide with their
customers. The profit is large
enough on solid waro to cut
off the twenty-fivo per cent.
and sell it at a imrgin satis
factory to every ono. People
do not bu' when they are
abroad because they can get
I better goods, but because thoy
can get cheaper.
The selections made by us
aro from three of the largest
factories in tho States. Wo
buy for cash and get tho ar
ticles cheap and will sell thorn
ac twenty-five por cent, or
exactly tho same as is charged
in San Francisco. We have,
child's sets at $6.75 and full
tea sets for a great deal more;
tho quality ha3 never been
surpassed in this country and
the prices have never been
