On Tuesday night, according to
arrangement, our reporter in com
pany with other representatives of
the pre.1, met Capt. Tell, and ac
companied him on his rounds of in
spection. Driving rapidly through
the city beat after beat was visited,
and in every case the olllccrs were
found on their posts, "prompt at
duty's cull" the whtetle of the Cap
tain. The discipline shown in (he
drill and military appearance of the
olllccrs successfully refutes the idea
bo frequently promulgated that a
native Hawaiian cainiot be trusted
to command other natives, as he
would not be obeyed. Nothing of
importance was reported at any of
the Btationu, all was quiet and order
ly, even at the notorious Cape Horn.
Here, and round the Chinese quarter
the beats are much shorter, as it is
considered that greater vigilance is
The fine proportions of some of
the olllccrs employed attracted our
attention. There would be no dan
ger of a criminal getting much
the better of them, or even escaping
from them, and we were informed
that special care was taken in post
ing these at all places where rows
were likely to take place. In addition
to these regular rounds of inspection
Captain Tell makes it a practice to
go at irregular times in the dead of
night to ui.ike sure that the oliicera
are at their posts and watchful. We
can rest assured now that our houses
will be protected and looked after
when fc'uch vigilance is bestowed on
As nothing of importance had
happened we then paid a visit to the
Chinese Theatre, on King street. As
we passed the Chinese . wash-houses
wc were told the particulars of a
cucccs.si'ul raid on opium smokers
there. "From information received"
the police weic sure that opium
smoking was being carried on, and
while .the Captain, accompanied by
6ome oflicero, came in at the front of
the building, other olllccrs were sent
round in canoe to the back and
climbed up to the windows, aud as
each Chinaman poked his head out
of a window he was straightway ar
rested. Before we arrivud at that
palatial structure our cars were
soothed and charmed by the dulcet
strains of melody proceeding from
the "tin-pot band" attached to the
establishment. Alighting from our
vehicle we went inside and viewed
the tcbtlictic performance of a tra
gedy, comedy or farce wc could
not toll which perhaps a little of
The performance begins at -1 inm.
and lasts till midnight, and is then
only a section of a play. A whole
play sometime!) takes at this rate
three anil even four weeks to linish.
The Chinese use no scenery : a few
chairs and sofas and a table are
placed on the stage: the musicians
are seated behind. A Joss exhibits
his rubicuud countenance from the
wall. Everybody, inclu ling audi
ence, players, employees, has free
access to the stago, aud the privilege
is taken advantage of. The stage is
lighted by a departmefrom the con
ventional European style. Three
cressets hnng f l om ropes, and arc
raised and lowered from time to time
to be filled again with oil. These
cast a dim and smoky glamour over
the scene, and recall the stories of
the earlier days' of the. drama in
The situation when wc arrived
was characteristic of the Chinese
drama. Ono of the performers
dressed to lepresent a female was
performing her toilet on the stago,
and really when he (or she) was
finished, he, she, or it, was a pretty
and novel sight. The style of per
formance consists in pieces spoken
to the accompaniment of a gong and
cymbals, varied by songs in fnlsetto
aud sometimes by dumb show, ac
companied by the entire band, in
cluding the big tin drum. The cast
of players includes a large number
of skilful actors, four of them being
trained for women's parts. And al
though wc could not understand i.
word yet the gestures of the per
formers were so skilful and the tones
so iiitlecied and varied that our in
terest was raised and kept unabated
for over an hour. From the birth
of the hero on the stage to the quar
rels between different members of
the family, the courtship of two
young and impassioned lovers, the
advances made a young and inter
esting female to a highly virtuous
and modest mandarin, everything
was novel and wonder raising.
liven here the police are stationed
to keep order, and well they kept it.
Everything on our rounds jndicatcd
the precision with which the duties
are marked out and the strict obedi
ence which is given and required.
Marshal Parke deserves and gets
the gieatcst credit for his able or
ganizaltcm of the police force, and
the good selection he has made of
oilieers to carry out his orders.
We hope at another time to give a
further account of the night duties
of the police.

On Tuesday five Chinamen at Ewa
were found guilty of having opium
in their possession." Yesterday two
Chinamen were tried at the Police
Court and found guilty of the same
offence. It i3 a note worthy feature
that in all cases lately in which
Chinese have been concerned, that
they have resorted to attempts to
bribe the officers of justice, and
even the opposing lawyers. We
think extra punishment ought to be
meted out for this.
