Bwiuging back r tho grcon bnizo

eight o'clock there wns a brilliant

Thoro was no delay, when tho
opening hour arrived, in raising
tho outer curtain. This operation
exposed to the gaze of tho public,
for tho first time, tho maguificcnt
drop curtain puiutod by Mr. W.
T. Porter, soenio aitist for tho
uow as ho was for tho old theater.
It was hold in view long enough
for tho house to have a good look
at it, but thero was not a moment's
hesitation in greoting tho work of
art with a spontaneous ond gener
al burst of applause. The Bubject
of the pnintiug is tho "Temple of
Truth," an idenlistio conception
of tho painter. Looming up in
hazy outline in tho background is
a magnificent edilico, storied nnd
tnrretcd. On tho right front-is n
royal palm, its hunk covered with
gorgeously ilowering creopers.
I his is on the margin of a placid
stream, and at tho base of tho
palm are ilowored shrubs and
banks of flowers. Books nnd
grassy beds, interspersed with
brilliant flowors, occupy tho oppo
site margin nnd stretoh away to
tho base of the templo. In tho
midst of tho stronm floats a gon
dola highly ornnto laden with a
party of youthful merry-innkors.
Elsowhero in this paper will bo
found a description of tho drop
curtain in good dramatic measure.
Tho malo chorus wore heartily
applauded aB they marched upon
tho first scono. Mr. Boss ns For
raudo mado a good impression in
Iub opening lines, and in tho
ballad, "Sat thoro a Gipsy Hag,"
rovenled a clear and rich bass that
was greeted with applauso at the
conclusion. His fine stago pres
ence stimulated tho cordiality of
his reception as a vocalist.
Miss Montaguo, on horoutrauco
in tho second scenn, accompanied
by Miss Young, received an ova
tion. Tho applause was renewed
on her completion of tho air, "The
Night, Calmly aud Peacefully,"
and again on tho singing of tho
air, "Of Lovo Liko His How
Vainly." Thoro was a tremen
dous burst of applause when, at
tho close of tho scono, tho prima
donna was called to tho fiont to
rccoivH bouquets for herholf nnd
Miss Young. Tho climax of en
thusiasm was cupped when Mr.
Irwin wont upon the stago and
presented Miss Montaguo with a
large wreath of pink carnations
Miss Young mado a very agreo
nblo debut as Inoz. With a fine
voico and an attroctivo presence
bIio won admiring plaudits.
Throughout her rolo sho carried
herself with grncoaud unfaltering
Mr. Moutenglo cariied out tho
Btrong rolo of tho Count do Luna
most admirably. His excellent
baritone notes wore maintained
full and clear to tho last, ami in
bearing, couutonanco and gesture
ho revealed fino dramatic talent.
Mr. Lowers was disappointing, as
much to himsolf us to his ad
mirers, purely through misfor
tuuo. He had been a sick man
for tho latter part of tho rohears
ing season, worst of all the trou
bio boing in his vocal organs.
His rendition of tho part was
therefore lacking in strength, but
still boro tho characteristics of tho
refined art that ho is known,
abroad as woll ns at home, to pos
sess in a high degree. His un
fortunato imlibpositioit, for which
ho had nothing but sympathy,
was to a great oxtent compensated
for from tho point of view of the
auditors by tho introduction
of a veiy popular substitute
in those severe exactions, tho
serenade and tho Miserere. This
was Mr. Puu! II Lieu berg, whose
rich tonor a local prido has
often been heard with great do
light in opoiatic boleotioiiB. His
execution on this occasion gained
him fresh laurels, ho having to
come twicoto the front to acknowl
edge applause. Mr. Smithies as
Buiz was highly acceptablo both
iu singing and in stago cariiago.
Ho is a deborvedly valued unit in
Honolulu's musical talent.
At tho oloso of tho first act,
while tho house was still ringing
with applauso, Mr. T. Bain Walk
er stepped upon tho stago and de
livered tho following happy ad
dress: "Ladies and Gentlemen: The
flattering ami plousaut duty has

Captain Griffiths of tho bark
Albeit, which left San Francisco
on the 25th of Inst mouth and ar
rived yesterday, was seen by a
JJULLLilK man on board his po
pular vessel this morning. The
Albert had a regular Noah's Ark
appearance at 10 o'clock aud the
wharf and vessol woro crowded
with sightseers to witness the
disembarking of hor livestock.
Sho brought down -1 bulls, 28 head
of mules, 1 horse and 120 hogs
consigned to W. H. Bico. Tho
horse is a valuublo driving nui
mal for Thomas E. Krouso. Tho
livestock camo dowu iu excellent
condition, although thoy woro all
swept off their feet onco by a
heavy sea which boarded tho
vossol. But few minutes woro oc
cupied in getting tho animnls on
shore, a led saddlo horso being
used as a decoy which tho mules
readily followed up and down tho
gangway. Iu addition to this dock
cargo, tho Albert had a quantity
of ducks, chickens and pigeons
belonging to the ship, tho wholo
making quito a mouagorio.
Questioned about tho political
situation in California, Captain
Griffiths said : "In my opinion thoro
is little doubt that tho state will go
Bepublicnn. Tho oxcitomont when
I left waB intonso. Thoro haB
never beou anything approaching
it in previous elections. Tho
hole money power of tho stato is
enlisted on tho Rido of McKinloy,
and fenl sure that it must win.
Everybody was talking about tho
groat pnrado that tho -Republicans
weio getting up for tho Snturdny
beforo tho olection in uonor of
Tom Beed, who was to sponk at
tho Mechanics lustituto in tho
ovoning. Tho pnrado in tho after
noon will eclipse nny thing of tho
kind over nttempted on tho Pncific
Coast, nnd tlio lowest estimate of
tho number who would take part
iu it wns 50,000. All tho big fac
tories, mills and stores, both
wholesale nnd retail, woro to close
so that thoir employes could
take part iu tho procession. Tho
Union Iron Works ulouo woro to
hnvo about 3000 iuoii in line,
overy man wearing n McKinley
button. Tho Sprockols employes
all wear McKinloy insignia in
some shnpo, nnd in fact tho same
may ba said of all big corporation
employes. If California is lost to
McKinloy it will not bo the fault
of tho capitalists. Of course,
every man who woars a McKinloy
button will uot vote for him but
tho groat majority will."
"How about San FranoiBco
politics, captain?" asked tho re
porter. "Now you've got mo," answered
tho gonial skippor. "Thoro uro
no less than five distinct tickots
for municipal offices. Tho Bo
publicans aio split up into two

"To provont frauds this yoar,"
coutiuuod tho captain, "tho Elec
tion Commissioners havo devised
a steel stamp in plnce of the rub
ber ono formerly used, so ai to
provont us far ns possible the
fraudulent stamping of tho X on
tho ballots, which used to bo doue
by moans of a' tiny rubber stamp

on tho hand. This year other
devices will doubtless como to the
surface. Every vacant space in
tho city is filled with posters
announcing tho namo of some
candidate for ollico and nothing
but politics was discussed any
where I went. I was glad to get
out of it all and to sea again."

"Tho peoplo of tho world havo
