A POPULAR SOCIETY EVENT Program From the Norwegian's Compositions Decorations Hall Crowded The Career of Greig. The Musical Circle of the Kilohana Art League treated the members of that organization to a Greig- evening, in the hall on Fort street last night. It was a pretentious undertaking, but one that turned out most successfully. It was the first time that anything of the kind had been attempted in Honolulu. The elite of the city was out in num bers large enought to fill the hall to overflowing. Indeed, at the end of the first part of the program, several peo ple found it necessary to leave the hall. The crowd was too great and the at mosphere too close for comfort. 1 The decorations -of the small stage were Norwegian throughout. Norweg ian flags were draped gracefully here and there, while Norway pines from Tantalus were set about to complete the decorations. Mrs. W. Graham and Mrs. F. R.

All the selections were most credit ably done. Professor Berger was the composer of the selections presented by himself. The .second number on the program was the following biographical sketch of Edward Greig, prepared and read by Mr. J. F. Brown. There is a natural desire on the part of all cf us to know something of the life and character of those whose names are famous in the world art. and surely such curiosity is most natural as regards those who have spoken to us in that strange language whose only interpreter is the heart of the listener. We are here this evening to listen to the music cf one wno stands in the front rank: ot modern composers, and whose circle cf admirers, to whom music is more sweetnes- ever Before continuing the program, it may be of interest to note a few of the dllien't points of his history. Ed wan. Grieg was born in 1S43 in the city o Bergen, Norway. He had the advan tage cf having in his parents, those who recognized his musical talent, and fostered them to the fullest extent, his mother being in fact his first teacher when he ivas six years old His first efforts at composition were at the age cf nine, and at fifteen he had determined on musical art for his profession. This decision seems part ly to have been reached by the advice of Ole Bull, the violinist, who was a warm friend of the family and ad mirer of the boy. His earl' studies in Leipsic under the famous musicians of the day, were interrupted by serious illness which compelled a return to Norway, his health heing seriously impaired. He returned to Leipsic however, and gra duated from the conservatory in 1S62 The following year he .was in Copen hagen under the instruction of Gade, (Whose methods seem to have been imore congenial than' those of the Leipsic conservatory, but there was that burning in the young composer .that led him on other (paths than those of Gade, to whom the caustic critics of the day applied with more wit than justice, the title of Mrs. Mendelssohn. Influenced by the companionship of Nordrask, a young Norwegian com poser of merit, and following the bent cf his own inclination, Greig speedily -became absorbed in the study of the folk lore, literature and music of his country. To this period numerous compositions among which the Humo resken Opus 6 immediately following on our program, belong. It is also at this period, that he met the lady whom he afterwards married and who is said to have inspired nu merous compositions. I am not able to point to amy number of the program as !being thus directly inspired, whiich is to be regretted, as it would have been interesting to have learned through the medium of his music, just what the feelings of the great com poser were when in love. It is not improbable however, that number 3. C. of the program, "I Love Thee," will meet the requirements, as the .date 1864 is close to the time of meetinig his future wife, and the title is suggestive. As this particular song moreover is stated by a competent critic to lack the usual Scandinavian character, and to partake of the Ger man, it may indicate some special dis turbance of Greig's mind. From this time on the life of Greig was a busy one. Given not only to the musical compositions that have won his fame but too the furthering of the musical art wherever he might do so. Eight j-ears of his life from 66, to 74, were spent in the Norwegian capital, where he founded a Musical Union, and by his energy and untiring interest gave important stimulas to the musical life of the town. Greig received from his countrymen not only their admiration and esteem, but the more substantial, and even to a musician, necessary tribute in a financial way. In 1869 an allowance of Parliament enabled him to visit Rome, and to make the warm friend ship of Listz -and in 1874 a further allowance of 1,600 crowns was granted him. A friend who had some acquaintance with Greig during a sojourn in Copen hagen, describes him to me as being short in stature, affable and unaffected, and somewhat indifferent to the con ventionalities. Greig with his friends Neuport and Schytte, both accomplished pianists and musicians, formed a trio wftcse music was a revelation and delight. My friend gently intimates that the best of musicians may not be, in fact, were not the "best of business men, and that it was a privilege, which however he valued, to occasionally as sist in tiding over a brief impecunious season. He looked back to this period with rare delight and satisfaction. On one occasion, Greig, while play ing the minuet from his E minor so nata, turned and remarked to my friend and other listeners, "Now isn't that diabolique" which recalls the statement that is made, that some of the popular Scandinavian tunes are attributed to the devil and other super natural agencies. At any rate, the particular passage that Greig referred to is so effective and of siioh peculiar charm, that the devil should have felt complimented. It would be impossible in th rime that can be. given to this subject, to make more than brief reference to Greig's life and work. The distinctive feature of Greig's music is its National character, colored by, and reflecting the old Norse melo dies and folk songs, and animated with all bv the fire and genius cf one, himself in ardent sympathy with his nation's life and history. It is prob ably not too much to say, that Greig's music, stamped as it is with his '.wn individuality, will be like a minted coin, standard of value hereafter for all Norwegian music. It is marked by the greatest freedom of rhythm and emphasis, by lights and shades of extreme contrast, in the 'Continued on Fifth Page.) than tinkling wider.

Fifty-sixth Day, April 21. Upon the recommendation of the Judiciary Committee the following joint resolution was unanimously adopted and sent to the House: "Be it resolved that it is the sense of the. Legislature of the Republic of Hawaii that the occupation of a certain portion of Union Square in the city of Honolulu, Island of Oahu, by a memo rial fountain will be an obstruction to the 'public use of said square and be it further resolved that, a copy-of this concurrent resolution be furnished to the Executive." Judiciary Committee recommended laying on the table House bill repeal ing the act to facilitate the recovery of rent. On the .motion cf Senator Rice to a:dopt the report Senator McCand- less said that it was one of the worst acts on the statute. It gave the land lord a hold upon the tenant and an advantage over merchants and worked a hardship. Merchants were compell ed to trust while 'the landlord had a lien on the property of the tenant. Senator Schmidt supported Senator McCandless. Senator Brown said the act worked no hardship upon the honest man who paid his bills. The law, he said, was only used in extreme cases. As a rule it was never taken advantage of. Under the law the goods must be advertised for sale and 30 days must elapse dur ing which the tenant had an opportu nity to redeem his gojods. Minister Smith said he was in favor of retaining the law, yet he thought the bill should not be treated in a summary way. During the years of his experience in renting houses he had known of very few cases where the law had worked a hardship. He had known of many cases where the landlord had been defrauded by schem ing or ignorant tenants. Senator McCandless spoke again fior the tenant. He said he had seen dur .ing the last six months many men who had been broken up by this pro cess. The landlord had come down and taken the goods out to the auction room and there they had been sold. He characterized the landlords in this custom as "sharks who come down like an eagle on the prey simply to devour it." The Senator said that the landlord risked only the interest on his investment in the shape of rent. The merchant in trusting risked his capital. The Senator's amendment to consider the report with the bill was lost. The report of the committee lay ing the bill on the table was then accepted. On recommendation of the Joint Committee on Public Lands the Senate concurred in the House technical am endments to the wide tire bill, The report of the Judiciary Com mittee recommended the passage of the House bill providing for the ap pointment of an extra Circuit Judge. The report is to be considered with the bill. Senator Holstein gave notice of his intention to introduce a bill amend ing the act relating to milk and No taries Public. Minister Cooper gave notice of his intention to introduce an act amend ing the act relating to the national guard and sharpshooters. The Finance Committee reported verbally recommending the passage, in appropriation bill 4, of an item of $3500 for an exhibit at the exposition in Omaha. Upon the statement of Sen ator Waterhouse that the exhibit was to be entirely separate from the Ha waiian village and the show portion of the exposition, the appropriation was passed. On the motion of the Attorney-General an item of $1,500 for water filtra tio ninvestigation was passed. On the item of subsidy to a boat to urn Molokai, Lahaina and Lanai, the Attorney-General said there was no objection to the Mokolii as she had done valuable service. The business had simply grown too great for her. The House bill relating to assault and battery passed third reading. The Health Committee recommended the passage of the House bill provid ing against the adulteration of food and drugs. The bill was read section by section and passed second reading with slight amendments. Third read ing was set for Monday. The Health Committee recommended the passage of the bill providing for issuing licenses for steam laundries with amendments. The license fee was placed at $50 and the limit of loca tion extended to the District of Kona, this Island. The bill passed second reading. Third reading was set for Monday. (Minister Cooper gave notice of his intention to introduce an act authoriz ing the Government to acquire posses sion of ancient heiaus and puuhonuas. At 11:50 o'clock, the Senate adjourn ed. HOUSE. Rep. Pogue reported for the majori ty of the special electric railway cora mitteo on House bill 31, an act to ex pend the franchise of the Hawaiian Tramways Company, Limited, to con struct and operate a street railway in Honolulu,' as follows: "The franchise by which said cor poration operates, was granted during the session of the Legislature of 1884; to Wm. It. Austin and his associates and assigns, or such corporation as might be incorporated or organized by him or them. "That an extension of time for the completion and equipment of this rail road was granted in 18SS to extend to September 15th, 1889. "That the right to use electric' pow er was granted by the Legislature or 1890, and extended by the Legislature of 1895, until January 1st, 1897; such right having expired by limitation on above date. "That the object of this bill is not only to extend for 33 years more, the original franchise to Wm. R. Austin and associates, but also to re-grant the use of electric power or other mechanical power. "Your committee further find, on careful and extensive inquiry, that the service given by the said company to the public in the past has not been altogether satisfactory. "That there- being a .large majority of the stock of this company owned abroad, none 'of the directors are resi dents of our Republic. The company may therefore be strictly termed a for eign corporation. "That, inasmuch as there is another bill -before this House to grant a fran chise to a company to be composed, or very largely so, of our own residents, and that, by the terms of that fran chise, the directors and other persons having charge, management and con trol thereof, shall be residents of our Islands, that such a corporation could be strict'iy called a domestic corpora tion. "We consider that all domestic cor porations should at least be allowed the same benefits and privileges as a foreign. "We believe that the Hawaiian Tramways Company, Limited, has had ample opportunity and time to in augurate eiectric power in the place of animal. "Inasmuch, therefore, as this foreign corporation has had ample opportunity in the past, to make use of improvel motive power we .would recommend that our own people be n'cw granted the same opportunity, and that this bill be laid on the table." (Signed). W. F. POGUE, SAM'L G. WILDER, A. B. IX) E BEN STEIN. Rep. Aohi presented the following report of the minority of the commit tee on the same bill which, with the majority report, was laid on the table to be considered with the bill: "Your committee consider that it is proper that certain privileges should be given to the above mentioned com pany so as to enable them to dispense with the hauling of their cars by old mules upen the streets of the city; and that they be allowed to extend their lines to the streets which they ask for, subject to the following conditions: 1. "That they be allowed to charge the same rate as is proposed by the Rapid Transit Company. 2. "That they give up their ex- (.Conti.iued on Third Page.)
