Tho third evening porformanco
of tho Frawloy coinpiiuy showed
no diininulion iu tho size of tho
audience, while tho general ver
dict on the rendition of the play
rjresentud wua that it was tho best
yet givon by tho troupe.
"Tho Lost Paradise" is a play
that line obtained much popular
ity iu tho Uuited StatoB, its au
thor boiug Henry O. do Millo.
It deals with the question of labor
In tho part of Andrew Knowl
tou, the propiietor of a lurge iron
foundry, Mr. Maclyn Arbucklo
appears to good advantage. Ho
has tho faculty of disguising him.
self so weU to suit tho parts ho
takes that it is with difficulty ho
can bo rocognized by those who
havo soon him in other characters.
As tho great iron worker who
steals au invention by which ho
makes a largo fortune, subse
quently impoverishing liimsolt
tliat his only daughter may havo
every luxury, Mr. Aibucklo is
seon at his best.
After Thursday's performance
it was said iu these columns that
it was ovideut that Mr. 1'. Dauiol
Frawley had not so far done his
best and that it was likely ho had
somo surprises in stoio for the
Honolulu public. He gave usono
of tliofeo surprises on Saturday
ovoniug in tho character of Reu
bon Warner, superintendent of
tho Knowlton Iron Works, in lovo
with tho owuer's daughter. The
part was ono eminently suited to
Mr. Frawley's style of acting and
tho audiouco was quick to show
its appreciation of tlio fact. It is
by far tho host charactor assumed
by hi in so far and his forcible as
sumption oC the part well merited
the frequent applause with which
his efforts were greood.
In tho chaiacter of Ralph
Staudish, who is engaged to
Knowlton's daughter, Mr. Frauk
Worthing gave another finished
pioco of acting, but then nothiug
loss is expected of him.
Tho fun of tho pieco was left to
Harry Carson Olarke as BillyHop
kins, a Bpark from tho Works, and
Miss Madge Carr Cook as Cinders
and thoy mado tho most of it.
Thoy were a good show in them
selves. Tho part of Margaret Knowlton,
taken by Miss Blanche Bates, iB
by far tho best sho has dono hero,
oud sho evinced a dapth of feeling
in its portrayal which at times
hold tho audiouco breathless with
Miss Hopo Ross scored uuothor
success as Polly Fletcher and
strengthonod tho hold sho has
alrendy gained on tho public,
while her simple but elegant cos
tumes wero much admired.
Lack of space will not pormit
further roviow, but, as in all tlio
plays, so far produced by this
company, tho minor chiuactors
woio all woll acted not simply
taken aud thoro wus tho
same attention to details
of scenery and appointmonts
which go to show tho watchful
oyo of a careful stago nmnagor.
Tho viow of tho machinery iu mo
tion at tho end of tho bocoiuI act
caino as a surprise to those who
had not seon tho play boforo, and
tho play had to bo stopped long
enough to allow tho audiouco to
seo it again.
Thoro was a good audionco at
tho matinee to witness tho produc
tion of "Moths." Thoro woro so
many children prosont that Mr.
Frawley has promised to put oil
uoxt Saturday afternoon a play
specially suijed to them.

Judgo Whiting is tho author of
n unanimous opinion of tho
Supremo Court, in tho inatlor of
tholappo'il of tho Hawaiian Com
mercial and Sugar Compauy ro
specting Btump duty upon a cer
tain trust dcodi The deed in
question was from tho said cor
poration to Sir W. Ltwrouco
Young, Bart., and S.F. HofTunng
Qoldsmid, Esq., of Loudon, Eng
land, convoying to thom certain
proporty iu tho Hawaiian Islands
in trust, to secure tho paymont to
bondholders of tho sum of 150,
000 sterling, equal to $720,000.
In recording tho instrument tho
company claimed that only ono
dollar stamp duty was payable,
that being tho amount provided
by statute for stamps upon deeds
of assignment of proporty. real or
personal, not otherwise charged,
or for a "release, assignment, re
conveyance, or other discharge of
mortgage" Tho Begistrar of Con
voyauces, howovor, assessed tho
stamp duties on tho deed at S21G0,
for Mainps upon a "mortgago or
charge on or ailVcting any land or
propei ty, real or personal whatso
ever," or otherwise
Tho Registrar of Public Ac
counts, on the presentation of tho
instrument to him according to
law, assessed tho stamp duties at
tho biimo sum. Thid assessment
was affirmed by tho Minister of
Finance Then tho corporation
paid the amount assessed under
protobt, and at'tho sumo time put
up 810 for costs of an appeal to
tho Supromo Court.
After reciting tho nature of tho
instrument and quotiug tho law,
tho Court say: "Wo are of opiu
ion that the stamp duly ossessod
at 2100 was correct and decide
that the Hawaiian Commercial
and Sugar Company do pay tho
same." Tho law of this opinion
is thus summarized: "An instru
ment held to bo a ruoitgago and
not an assignment or transfer of a
former mortgago, and therefore
liablo to stamp duty as a mort
gage" Thurston it Stanley for

At the Settlement a distinct im
provement t-inco tho previous vis

Dutton. Tho unofficial visitors
oxprodsed themselves as being
very much plensed, and a good
doul surprised at tho admirable

Mons. Vossiou will probably
report to his Government upon
tho facilities for accommodating a
party of investigators from tho

Ho gavo thom bovou hours' in
struction and practico and says
