HAWAIIAN OPERA HOUSE.
rEKKonsiANdi: nv tiiu Honolulu
AMATEUR MtNSTUr.r, COM "ANY.
TIio Honolulu Minstrel Coinpnny,
resuscitated tuul reconstructed, inado
its first appearance in a new seiie3
of entertainments on Saturday night,
at tho Hawaiian Opera House. When
the curtain rose at 8 o'clock tho
lioilso, down-stairs and up-stairs,
presented to tho performers a per
fect sea of faces. Every lescrvablo
Beat had been secured bofoic the
opening of the doors, and all those
not reserved were occupied shortly
after the doors opened by people in
waiting for the first opportunity to
gain admission. A good many per
sons had to stand throughout the
evening wherever they could jam
themselves in. The house retained
this plethoric condition to tho close
of tho performance.
The raising of the curtain revealed
to tho nudlcuco tho Minstrel Com
pany in a curved line of fouiteen
blackened faces. home of these
wcro familiar, from having appeared
on the same stage, on sundry occa
sions, with tho company in its pris
Une days; others were strangers
there, this being their first appear
ance. Tho company has lost several
of its old and prominent members,
notably Harry Von Holt, Armstrong,
Morse, and Bishop, of whom tho
threo first named are absent from
country, and their place are filled
by an addition of new blood. W.
H. Iloogs and W. II. Charlock oc
cupied one end of the curve, and
rattled the bones ; at the other were
U. J. Ordway and E. R. Biven, who
operated the tamborincs ; A. E.
Murphy was interlocutor.
Tho first part of the entertain
ment consisted of songs and
choruses. U. J. Ordway sang "Hide
away;" J. Bright, "Put my little
shoes away;" W. II. Charlock,
"Telephone in the air;" C. D. Wili
okai, a Hawaiian air ; E. R. Bivcn,
"A new Dude in Town ;" R E. Hal
stead, "Tho Lighthouse by the
Sea;"W. H. Hoogs, "I owe ten
dollars to 0' Grady." Tho singing
was very good,, both the solo and
concert parts. ScveraJ repeats were
insisted upon by the audience.
The pleasantries with which the
songs were interspersed caused con
siderable amusement, those having
local point and application being es
pecially applauded. At the first
several of the best jokes were lost
to most of the audience through
not .being fully heard, but the
speakers seemed to measure the hall
more correctly later on.
The latter half of the programme
was made up of a negro sketch
played by Murphy and Biven, banjo
solos by Ordway, and a local bur
. lesque portraying day and night
events in Honolulu. The entire
company took part in the burlesque.
The day events represented a variety
of local characters calling in succes
sion at a stand for a' milk shake, and
amongst them a. well-known mule
andgits rider. The debut of the
, mule created tumultuous applause.
A dude, a Frenchman, and a native
woman were capitally represented.
W. H'. Hoogs played the policeman
to perfection. "Honolulu at night"
represented a gambling scene, and
how the police are hoodwinked. The
pleasure of the house was testi
fied by frequent and prolonged bursts
The evening's enjoyment was
augmented by an efficient orchestra,
in which the indefatigable Berger
and the ever-ready-to-help Myron
Jones exhibited their musical skill.
Many of our readers will remem
ber a young man named Landishut
who was in the Islands about seven
years ago, and who attempted to
obtain a marriage licence from tho
'"Interior department under false
-pretences. lie left the country
rather suddenly after being tried
and found guilty on the above
charge. From a Melbourne paper
of August 18lh it is learned that
Landishut has just turned up in
that city whore he has successfully
obtained largo sums of money under
false pretences. Ho engaged a
handsomely furnished house at a
rental of $130 a week. On tho
strength of letters and papers he
was allpwed to open an account at a
bank and overdraw to tho extent of
$10,000. Ho represented ho had a
large shipment of castor oil afloat
and obtained $2500 on such repre
sentation. Ho obtained 500 worth
of jowolry, 8200 worth of clothes,
paid no rent, obtained $2500 from
tho owner of the liouso ho rented,
and then skipped. The grocer,
baker, butcher, milkman and other
tradesmen had bills against hiin va
rying from $50 to $350. Even his
servants had not been paid their
wages. Landishut was married to
Miss Pollard, an actress, and she
disappeared soon after Landishut.
A warrant had been issued for his

NO LOSS TO THE COUNTRY.
W. Dorking is the name of a
Dutchman who recently sorved out
a sentence on the reef for keeping a
disorderly house. He had not been
out of prison many weeks when he
was again arrested along with a
woman named Louisa Pcrdcy, both
being charged with keeping a dis
orderly house. The case against
them has been remanded from time
to time until this morning, when a
nolle prosequi was entered on con
dition that they leave the country.
They we.it on the Australia, and it is
to be hoped they will never return.
DEPARTURE OF THE AUSTRALIA.
Tho steamship Australia did not
leavo her dock until 12 :-10 o'clock,
owing to the arrest of Captain
Houdlettc. A few minutes before
noon the steamer was searched for
two Chinese who had been ordered
by tho Court, to the custody of the
Captain. They could not be found,
consequently the Captain was ar
rested and had to appear before Po
lice Justice Doyton, and there give
a bond in tho sum of $500 for his
nppearaucc in Court on November
15th to answer to tho charge of let
ting the two Chinese go.
There was tho usual largo crowd
of people on the wharf to sco the
steamer depart, and the Hawaiian
band enlivened the proceedings with
choice selections of music. Two
dudes caused much amusement.
Nearly all tho passengers were
covered with Jeis. Oct. 22.
THEY FOUND NOTHING.
When tho schooner Lavinia arrived
at Ewa yesterday, tho Deputy Sher
iff and some police officers went on
board and searched the vessel care
fully expecting to find opium. They
got "hoku." Oct. 24.
A JURYMAN'S MIND.
When tho foreign jury was called
in tho Supremo Court this morning
to try tho case of a Chinaman for
peryeiting justico for whom Col. V,
V, Ashfoul appeared, and had taken
their seats, one of thorn F. Godfrey
roso and said ho did not want to
servo on a case if it was thought
that personal differences would in
flueuco his mind in giving a verdict.
In this case his mind would not in
tho least bo affected in rendering a
verdict, but if Col. Ashford were
being tried it would. Up to this
morning Godfrey has been called
eight times but has only sat as a
juryman in one caso, Oct. 21.
Tho Post Ofilco dispatched by tho"
Australia 1082 loiters and 081 pack
ages of papers. By tho threo steam
ers which have loft sinco Thursday
for San Francisco thero has been
forwarded from tho office 9273 let
ters and 19C8 packages of papers.
Three sales of land were held at
Sir. Morgan's auction rooms this
noon. A piece of laud containing
an area of 00-100 of an acre situate
at Knpahuna was bought by Hon.
W. R. Castle for others for $ 140.
Two pieces at Laic were sold for
$G() and 8150 respectively to C.
Booth. An area of 52-100 acres at
Kalacpohaku was put chased for
$390 by Mr. A. B sa for others.
OPIUM IN POSSESSION.
Scarcely a day passes now that
there is not a caso in tho Police
Court where opium is concerned.
Four Chinese and two natives wcro
charged this morning with having a
preparation of opium in possession.
One" of the natives, Iopa, pleaded
guilty to the charge and was fined
$5n with ten days imprisonment at
Ah Sung had a similar chargo pre
ferred against him. Ho had many
questions to aik tho witnesses for
the prosecution and in defence made
a very noisy speech. When the
Court lined him 50 with ten days
imprisonment at hard labor he sat
down in the dock with a most con
temptible look of disgust on his face.
BITUMINOUS ROCK PAVEMENT.
A new pavement is now in the
Sau Francisco market, which bids
fair to soon come into general use.
It is bituminous rock pavement.
The piocess consists in disinte
grating tho rock at the mines by a
patent machine and convctting it
into bricks by hydraulic pressure of
live bundled pounds per square
inch. ThiS'Squcezcs the oil out and
leaves a compact malleable biiek,
which can be moulded to any size or
shape, including bricks for water
channels. It can be laid down
cheaper than any oilier pavement in
cement, is noiseless and practically
indestructible. It can bo shipped
anywhere aud is easily handled.
The bricks can be used for side
walks, avenues, stable floors, col
lars, yards, etc. They arc cheaper
than wood or composite stone aud
will last forever. The bricks arc to
bo made so many inches square and
one could tell exactly what labor,
etc., would cost. The work of ten
dering is reduced to a certainty as
the area to be covered would be
Samples of tho pavement have
gone to England and 4hc Australian
Colonics. There is no doubt an
unlimited field for a noiseless indes
tructible pavement, and as Califor
nia has the only known rock fit for
the puipose and owns the p.itcnt
machine and patent for the brick as
well, it looks like a pretty bccuic
Some of the pavenicnts have been
laid down in San Franciscp. It is
intended to send some to Honolulu
and have it laid down on some
street where tho most traffic occurs.
Capt. J. II. Brown when at the
Coast saw tins pavement and no
doubt will be able to give full par
ticulars regarding its usefulness.
Minister Thurston was to have been
shown the pavement before he left
A company has been formed, tho
stock all taken and the machinery
will all be manufactured befoie the
end of the year. It looks as if such
a pavement is just what is wanted
THROWN FROM HER HORSE.
Last evening a number of ladies
and gentlemen were out for a moon
light ride. On reaching tho corner
ot Beretania and Fort streets, ono
of the party, a teacher at the Ka
waiahao Female Seminary, collided
with an express and was thrown
from her horse to tho ground. Tho
young lady was picked up and taken
to Dr. Day's residence close by, and
later on to her home. She received a
slight cut on the face and was badly
stunned, but will be all right in a
day or so. Oct. 2U.

MORE ' SHOOTING,
LEPERS FI1IIJ ON TOUCH OI'FICCItS AT
On Tuesday last Officer C. B.
Reynolds of tho Board of Health
instructed special olllcer Kim?sley to
go to Ewa for tho purpose of arrest
ing several lepers known to bo in
that district. Kingslcy has had
some oxperienco in this line, having
recently captured a number on the
island of Kauai. A list of names
of thoso suspcotcd being lepers was
handed to Kiugsloy, and two or
threo of the names wcro specially
marked, rs being men who wcro
likely to carry shooting irons. Roy
nolds had been theic himself and
was fully acquainted with tho char
acter of these two or threo men.
On Wednesday Kingslcy, with the
Deputy Sheriff and a policeman,
called at the house of a suspected
leper named Manucla, but he was
not in. They (hen proceeded to
Aikulani's bouse, and wcro within
three hundred yards when firo was
opened on them by Aikulanl and
also Manucla. In all Kingslcy
counted nineteen shots. Tho nine
teenth shot struck him, passing right
through the calf of his leg. The
latter had a Colt's tcvolverand used
it. One of the lepers got behind a
horso aud fired at tho olllcers from
underneath tho belly. All tho time
the lfpers were firing they were re
treating uutil they finally got on to
a bluff and then Kingslcy stood
little chance with them. Ono of
tho shots Kingslcy fired struck the
horso which the leper was hiding be
hind. It rolled over apparently
dead. The lepers used Winchester
Kingslcy telephoned to town what
had happened and at 5 o'clock last
evening Officer Reynolds left for
Ewa. He met Kiugsloy coming in
alone. Dr. Wood dressed the wound
and to-day ho is in a comfortable
condition thougli he will have to lay
up for several weeks.
This school house has been built
and furnished by the Hon. C. R.

This company, formed for a forty
