Sell llnmukua Land.
Sub-land-agent Williams will leave
overland on Friday for Honokaa, where
on Saturday he will sell several tracts of
government land at public auction.
These lands adjoin or are enclosed by the
Louisson coffee plantation and are situ
ated near the Hamakua government ex
periment station. One tract contains
XII.03 acres and is suitable for tobacco
growing, as experiments at the station
have proven. The upset price on this
tract is $1388. The remaining tracts arc
eight in number and consist of strips of
land a couple of bundled feet wide that
have been held by the Territory as forest
r.-serve to serve the purpose of wind
breaks. It is presumed that the Louis-
sobs will buy these tracts and preserve
them for the purposes intended, for the
protection of their coffee orchards. Mr.
Williams will return Sunday or Monday.

At llllo Hoarding School.
Seldoni has an Hilo audience been
favored with n more excellent perfor
mance than the musical comedy of
"Robin Hood", given Friday nnd Satur
day nights by the Hilo Mounting School,
assisted by local talent. Only the thread
of the narrative, adapted from the book
by Howard Pyle recounting the merry
adventures of "Robin Hood" Was attemp
ted, but interspersed throughout the play
were nrtlscally arranged the songs and
choruses from the opera of the same name
by Reginald de Koveu, which added
much to the effectiveness of the play nnd
the enjoyment of the performance.
The title role of "Robin Hood" was
interpreted by Wm, McCluskey, and his
acting and treatment of the character of
this intrepid bandit was marked by a
degree of dramatic ability as perfect as Is
seen on the contemporaneous stage.
No less can be said of the portrayal of
the other characters by members of the
company and only a faint idea of the
performance can be given iu these few
Playing opposite to "Robin Hood" was
Mrs. May L. Curtis in the role of "Maid
Marian", and no part of the performance
was more subtle and bewitching than her
acting. J. U. Smith as the picturesque
"Little John" brought real tears to the
of the audience by his discomfiture

in the highly ridiculous situations of the
play. Although making but one appear
ance during the evening, D. E. McUger
as "Wat, the Tinker" made the most of
bis opportunities, and his character work
in the drinking bout was droll and little
less than real. W. H. Beers made a
melodious atid dignified "SherifT of Not
tingham, and pleased the house with his
solo work. G. A. Cool as "Friar Tuck"
sang the Armoror's song with good effect
and f. W. Marsh, as "Midge, the Miller"
rendered the ever popular "Brown Octo
ber Ale". Luther Severance as "Sir
Stephen" and Harry Irwin as "The
Bishop" were resplendent in costume and
gave faithful interpretations of their
parts. The delicious impersonation of
"Annabel", the milkmaid, by Mrs.Helcn
Sletusen, was one or the treats of the
evening and the style of her singing and
acting in the churning song was both
sincere and gentle. She was repeatedly
the recipient of encores. Miss Harriet
Hapai as "Makeno' the blue Boar" and
Mrs. Louise Hapai as "Nan o' the Mill"
we're clever, sweet and pretty, and filled
the stage with their dautiness and charm.
The milkmaid's chorus, and St. Svfithen's
chimes, rendered by Mrs. Siemsen, Mrs.
Hapai, Miss Harriet Hapai, Messrs. J. W.
Marsh and James Matloon, were enthus
iastically received with encores.
Catherine Westervelt as "Ellen o'
Deirwold", Charles Siemsen as "The
Farmer", Jercmiih Malua as " Allan a
Dale", James Mattoon as "Will Scarlet,"
Soiclil Yamamoto'as "David o' Doncaster''
Will 'Westervelt ai the head Of the King's
Foresters, were oil worthy dfmentfdn.
Much credit for the excellence of the
performance is due to the aisenible
work of the entire company, the remain
der of which was made up of members of
the Hilo Boarding School. The minor
parts in the large cast, both male and
female were excellently filled, and the
stage management was notably and
unusually good. The groupings on the
stage made effective pictures, and the
Individual work of each perforuier
blended Into complete and harmonious
whole. In its entirety, the production
of "Robin Hood" by the ladies and
gentleman of1 the cast and the Hilo Board-
lug "School was one of the best eyer
seen by a Hilo audience.
The scunlc effets as well as the drop
curtain were the product of Miss Kale!
Ewaliko and were a marvel lu their
naturalness of color and perspective.
The costumes were elaborate anil appro
priate to the times, when Robin Willi his
outlaw band held sway over Sherwood
Forest. The musical numbers through
out the play were well rendered, and
great credit is due to Mrs. J. T. Lewir,
Miss Caroline Potter and Mrs. Wester
velt for the painstaking care bestoWed :
upon this part of the program. The
dramatic situations and the interpretation j
of the lines were under the direction of
Mrs. A. G. Curtis, who added her own
personality to the play. The entire per
forriiance was uude'r the personal super"
vision of Mrs. Levi C. Lyuianofthe
Hilo Boarding School, who displayed
keen executive qualities in brluulng the
production to a high standard of perfec
tion. The 'performance will be repeated Hi Is
afternoon at a natlileein the Illlb'Bdard'
ing School assembly hall. The price of!
admission has been reduced to twenty
five cents to enable the school children '
to witness the performance. '
EXPEKiEXOED THE EARTHQUAKE
First ArrlVnl In llllo from Wrecked
The first person to arrive on this Island
from the earthquake ami fire-stricken
cty of Sail Francisco was Henry Dillon,
the ten-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. John
Dillon of Peepeekeo. He landed Sunday
from the Kalaulanl with his father who
had gone to Mahukona to meet him. The
little fellow was greeted by everyone and
161 d In his artless way and very intelli
gently about the catastrophe. He was lu
the city at the time of the earthquake,
living with his aunt near Sacramento
street and a few blocks above Van Ness
avenue. The fire came to within a block
of the house in which he was living. He
was awakened by the earthquake and the
falling of plastering from the walls and
tumbling down of chimneys, followed by
the screams of frightened people. The
shock tasted forty-seven seconds, the
trembling gradually increasing, diminish
ing and increasing ngnln. The first night
was spent lu the house, cooking being
done In the street, but on account of the
proximity of the fire, the following night
Was spent on Holliday hill. Conditions
were awful. Many were shot for looting,
and manyunocent persons, also, much
complaint resulting of the recklessness of
the soldier guards. Provisions were dealt
out and the use of water was allowed for
drinking purposes only. Work of clear
ing up began soon, and all who would
not work were ordered out of the city.
Labor commanded good wages, carpen
ters receiving as high as (10 a day. The
wharves were not so seriously'damaged,
and the Alameda left froui her dock, the
ferry landing, though in use, was sup
ported by braces. The Bulletin and
Chronicle newspapers were being Issued
from the Oakland Herald office. The
young fellow saw a good deal of the des
truction and the confusion, and did his
share of the work, selling papers, coffee,
etc., but is probably glad to be safe home.
His first remark as he sat down in the
quiet of the hotel, after a few minutes'
reflection was: " My, I wouldn't like to
I HO! FOR THE GLORIOUS 1
go through that earthquake again."
