5 Eueitr Bulletin, !
DANIEL LOGAN. Editor.
SATURDAY, JAN. BO, 1897. )
Sevornl mouths ngo tho Bulle
tin "xnrettbod its opinion agaiuBt
tho piuolle o encores. It was
afforded n convenient text in an
article printed in Harper's "Week
ly on tho Kruno side. This fnct
ought to hnvo sorvcd as it was
perhaps calculated to do for a
bnlm to local prido undor tho no
cossiuy ouud. That tho vico of
uiicoifi uhh prevalent iu tho great
est city of America should have
sheltered its opponent hero from
tho imputation of poriphrastically
or ouiirttiuctively stigmatizing Ho
nolulu as "a jay town." By tho
same token, the effect of tho local
attnek should have boeu all tho
moio foiuiblo, upon refined minds,
from its inspiration by a paper that
gracefully wears in its titlo head
the description, "a journal of civil
ization." On tho present occasion tho in
spiration is not exotic. It is in a
"high degrco kamaainic, coming
from tho strong protost of an old
residnut, through an interview on
another page. Not one sonteuce
of his plain and direct talk can
fail to receivo an approving nod
from overy level head iu tho com
m . )ity. Encoring of performers,
good, fair and indifferent, iu both
pay and free cntertainmeutb, has
been run right down to tho ground
in Honolulu. It is no longer to
be regarded as conferring a com
plim nt upon unusual excellenco
Often it is clearly but a wouldho
friendly lark at tho exponso of the
recipient. Sometimes it is a so
Tore punishment to its subject, as
in tho caso of a lady morooblig-,
inc than robust, who taxes her ut
moot powers in an effort of clas
Bi'cal vocalism. It is not enough
for tho encoring cranks that
the "uugEtrc8s should grace
fully bow her thanks for well
deserved applauso. Her flush
ing smilo sets them roar
ing and dapping and stamp
ing until tho singer, with her en
orgies exhausted in tho final reach
to tho top of hor registor, comes
back to the footlights to repeat
the exertion. Tho practiso is
cruel and should bo treated as
criminal whon indulged toward
ehild performers as ofton done
hero. Iu their cube it domands
not merely frowning upon, but
preventing by cold, hard law.
That community which allows
children of tender years to bo com
pelled not only to repeat eoveie
Toeal strains, but to execute ex
hausting dances or gymnastic
feats over again, by tho encore
fiends, is thoroby toloratiug shoor
Indiscriminate encores have be
come so much a mattor of courso
in Honolulu that programs aro
xnado short by knowing directors
to mako room for expected re
calls. Thus tho patrons or guests,
as the caso may be, of an onter
tuiument aro deprived of a degreo
of variety "tho spico of life"
to give scope to what is, often as
not, but tho effusive conceit of a
fow of thorn who promote tho
noisy demonstrations simply to
show off thoirsolf ostcomod know
ledgo of what is meritorious. So
far as tho interests of auditors and
spectators not offending aro con
cerned, howovor, tho intorviow
elsewhere given may suffice for
one day. Iu tho foregoiug re
narks it has boon sought to show,
in a few particulars that must ap
peal as facts to ovory intelligent
obtorvor, that tho oncoro custom
when carried to an oxtromo is
Irauuht with gross injustice to
ihose, both professional and ama
teur, who cater to tho public
doinund for nmuooinont. Surely
n a wmw.wj
tliori nro enough sensible peoplo
in Honolulu to suppress tho nui
Bttiico by going it thuir sovoro dis
conntonnuco. Mr. Desky of Bruco Waring &
Co. deserves thunks for taking a
popular voto upon a namo for tho
pleasuro lako in tho now suburb
he is oponiug up, and bosidos
paying haudsomoly for tho boIoc
tion with tho prizo of a building,
lot that may yot bo a fortune.
Names of placos which aro to bo j
often in peoplo'B mouths ought to I
bo an important question with
those having tho power of fixing I
them. Thero is a street ou which
tho Bulletin was printed until
lately, and nobody connected with
the oflico could over direct a diiver
to tho placo if it dopouded upon
his pronouncing tho namo of tho
street. "K kickanyono" would
bo a fair approximation to that
tliorouglifaro on the csplanado.

Speaking of tho Hnwniinnt), Sen
ator McOandloss, in his recent
Bp'.'ech of January 14th, says:

T. m. Ojemo In Ono of iho lllif-
avt Ilnorn n( Uiiw Milk In
the Wnrlil-lho MIU Irnilo
Among tho through passengers
ou tho Coptic which passed
through this port a week ago, was
a quiet, unoblrusivo littlo Jnpa
ueso gentleman whoso chock would
bo good for almost any amount
represented by six figures. IHb
namo was T. M. Oyeno and his
business is furnishing raw Bilk to
tho great manufacturers of tho
United States. He has been
Boventeeu years at it aud iu that
time has accumulated a largo
fortune. He is one of the best
judges of raw silk iu the world.
His headquartors aro iu Now
York, but ho is seldom thore, for
his business takes him wherever
thore is raw silk for sale. Ho is
by far tho largestvm porter of raw
silk iu tho United States. Ho
supplies tho silk thread factories
of Now York and Patersou with
thoir raw material, as woll as tho
silk mills of Massachu8etts,Ponn
sylvauia and other states.
Thore is no duty on the impor
tation of raw silk iuto tho United
States, so that making of it into
silk goods has become a groat in
dustry in many places. Mr.
Oyouo says that Japan furnishes
GO per cout of tho raw silk used in
tho United States. Tho remaind
er of it comes from China, Italy
"Tho Chitieso silk," said Oyeno,
"is cheaper than any other, but it
is not bo good. It is away down
in price now. The Italian silk is
good. In Italy they know how to
mako good silk, and their pro
duct is tho ouo which comes into
tho strongest competition with the
"I'lio Ereuch silk is very good,
but very littlo is imported. 1 was
over at Lyons not long ugo to look
into tho silk industry. I think
it is better there than iu the United
States. Just before I started for
San Francisco, too, I visited a
good many of tho manufacturers
of silk iu Now York, l'atorson
and othor places.
"Whilo business has beon very
dull with them the impression
was that it would oou bo hotter.
The result of tho recent election
lias helped tho business some.
During tho past year or so, how
ever, only four or fivo of all tho
silk manufacturers have made any
money. Silk is a good deal of a lux
ury, aud is not what may bo call
ed a necessity, so when times get
hard it means they don't buy it.
But times aro brightening now,
aud wo expect to import a heavy
amount of silk to this country."
Mr. Oyono is on his annual trip
to Japan to secure tho bulk of
this season's crop of raw silk..
