at the Hawaiian Opera House In a

no less delighted than surmised. "To
think they want Brahms," she could
not help exclaiming, and the aitlst
In her became alive at once to the
feeling that out, far out, In the mid

wcic of an Intellectual plane to ap
preciates .the best In music.
The audience which gathered at
the Opel a House yesterday afternoon
consisted almost entirely of lovers of
ad van ceil music. It was Bitch an au
dlcnco that was Keenly cilttcnl amf
had the highest stnndards of compar
ison with which to Judgo the per
formance. Somo had heard Miss
(loudson on the mainland and had
that advantage, for they scttlo'l
themselves down for the solid en
joyment of every moment, while the
others lost a bar or two In taking the
measure of tbo pianist. Few nmong
the audience had not heard Pnder
ewskl, Fanny Illooinllchl Zlcslcr, and
others of equal fame, so tho enthu
siasm they generated ns tho recital
piogrcssed came from a lively un
'derstandlng of the powers of the per
former. A just crItlo.ua of Katharine Good
son tilings the writer to an. nppre
hcnslon of his limitations. It Is with
a sense of awe that One must de
scribe In every-day prose what prop
erly belongs to tho realm of poetry.

Miss (loodson had not progressed
many nofes In her first number, tho
Heothovcn Moonlight Sonata, before,
she had captured in rapt attention
everyone present. 8ae for tho
sounds of the Instrument the utmost
stlllnestprevalled, while tho per
former advanced through the several
movements, and the audience Invol
untarily remained silent several sec
onds after the close hi the number

and then hurst foith Into such a
demonstration of applause ns Is sel

fitting Introduction of a great artist
to an appreciative audience; that

Then followed two lliahms numbers,
Intermezzo In II minor and Ilhapsu

dinary technique, and they wcr duly
But It was In the Chopin numbers
that the poetic Interpolation of the
artist was most manifest. Here were
numbers that many Knew by heait
and with which neaily every or.o
present wns more or less familiar.
Hut tho majority had never heard
these numbers rendered before lIKo
Kathnilnn Goodson placd them.
Theio was n subtlety to her touch
In the delicate strains that none but
a wotnnii could give and a masculine
strength In the powerful passages
that seemed almost superhuman.
More especially was this true in G
Hat Ctude Op. 25, No. 9, which re
quired remarkable rapidity and
strength. This number bad to be re
peated In answer to enthusiastic en
cores. The Chopin series consisted
of three etudes and two valses.
During un Intermission between
these numbers and the balance of
the program, the writer took occa
sion to call behind the scenes to
congratulate the player. Miss Good
son was told that she had already
completely won Honolulu and this
assurance seemed to please hpr
"The people are not so enthusias
tic ns In Australia." she said. "In
Melbourne and Sydney they rose
from their scats and waved their
handkerchiefs besides applauding,
and many of the gentlemen' even
tossed their hats In t,hcv air," Then
she ,was told that while Honolulu
was quite as appreciative, It was
never so demonstrative as this and,
while the audience was not tub Jircc',1

to Honolulu two years hence and
plans to stay nvei- one steamer. It
was a matter of the deepest regret to
her that she was obliged to forego
tho charms of Honolulu's scenery
and had not a moment to herself

safe to predict that Honolulu will
iscelve Miss Ooodson with open
arms on her return.
