sent to pursue Villa, was heard from last night after the President had called out
the National Guard. The General says that conditions are very tense but that he

"Some actress," appeared to be
the consensus of opinion of the
crowd which packed the Liberty
theater to the doors last night to
witness the Honolulu premier of
Valcska Suratt, one of America's
leading actresses, in "The Im
migrant," a story which brings
the old world to the new and fights
out a battle of one of tke daughters
of far-away Russia, who adopts as
her home "the land of the free "
And the opinion formed by the
audience will not admit of contra
diction. Valcska Suratt has main
tained a position at the head of the
profession for a number of years
and h er advent into the silent
drama is a red-letter mark for the
"new art." It is gradually calling
all of them and it is probable that
many others will follow in the
footsteps of Suratt.
"The Inimigiant" comes from
the Jesse L. Laskv studio and the
cast includes several old favorites.
They are: Thomas Meighan,
Theodore Robert, Jane Wolff, Hal
Clements, Ernest Joy, Bob Flem
ing and Mrs. McCord.
Valeska Suratt appears in the
title role Theodore Roberts as the
grafter and Meighan as the second
cabin passenger. The plot is
cleverly worked out and ends in
the complete rout of the grafter,
after he has tried to wreck the life
and blast the prospects of the
younger man. Through the kindly
offices of The Immigrant the latter
scores a victory in business and
