If there aro any lingering
doubts remaining ub to tho
strength of tho opera houBO walls
and galleries they may bo laid
aside uftor tho audiouco which
gathered thoro on Saturday ovon
ing. Threo-quartera of on hour
boforo tho curtain roso thoro was
standing room only to bo had and
half an hour later tho salo of
tickets had to bo stopped entirely.
Tho Iioubo was literally packed
with humanity in every nook and
All tho boxos wero filled. Mrs.
Irwin had a largo thoator party,
which included British Commis
sioner Hawes and Consul General
Mills and wife, and hor box
was crowded with callers all tho
ovoning, as was that of Mrs.
Wilder opposite Tho upper
right haud proscenium box was
occupied by Cnptaiu Watson and
offieors of tho U. S. S. Adams and
thoir wives, with Mis. Willis,
wife of tho American Minister,
nnd her sou as guests. The box
was appropriately decorated with
American and British ilugs. Scat
tered throughout tho audienco
wero all the well-knowu theater
going peoplo of Honolulu and
viciuity, including a largo party
from Ewa and naval oflieors from
the Adams and Albatross.
After tho curtain had fallen on
tho first act and the applauso had
subsided, Mr. T. Daniel Frawloy
appeared and mado a fow ro-
marks oxpressivo ot the "latitude
of himself and oveiy liieuibor of
his company nt tho cordiality with
which thoir performances had
boon received by Honolulu peo
plo nnd tho general couitasy and
kiuduesB they had met with soci
ally. Thoy woro bo delight
ed with thoir roception that
it aifoidcd him pleusuro to an
uounco that tho company had
definitely decided to return to
Honolulu in Soptomber next,
when ho promised to produco
soveral ontiroly now plays. Ho
had obtuiued a vory good idea of
what tho peoplo hero liked in the
way of theatrical porformauces
and in Septombor ho promised
I to bo hotter able to gratify thoir
I tustcs than with tho present ro
! purtoiio of tho company. Inci
dentally ho surprised the audienco
by telling them that although iu
the nineteen months in which tho
presout company lud beon iu ox
istonco thoy had played to many
audiences numerically larger, Btill
thoy had never had an audienco
which roprosonted so much
money. Tlio box office receipts
on Saturday ovoniug woro tho
largest in tho history of tho com
pany. Tho drama of "Tho Ensign,"
writtou by Win. Haworth, is so
well known that a synopsis
would bo tiresome. Ab tho ensign
Mr. Frawloy took tho leading
pint and in Iu'b characterization
added to tho reputation ho made
in "Tho Lost Paiadise." In tho
part of tho old coxswain, Mr.
Mnclyn Arbucklo mado auother
big success. His acting
of tho old salt was perfect, and in
tho feocno whoro ho interviews tho
Secretary of tho Navy and oHers
to bo hung twice if necessary to
sivvo tho lifo of tho onsign ho lov
ed bo well ho was paiticulurly
effective Ho was ably seconded
in this scene by Bob Scott, who
doeB everything well he attempts.
His imporsouatiou of Secretary
Wolles loft nothing to bo dosirod.
Ab old Bill Bowlin, a drunken
old salt, Mr. Harry Carson Olarko
mado tho most of tho part as was
to bo expectod.
Owing to tho lateness of tho
hour boiuo portions of tho play
woro eliminated, nud the nudionco
is yet in doubt as to whother Dot
(Miss Hope Robs) nnd Midship
inau Watson (Mr. George W.
Loslio) mado up thoir differences
or not, but it is presumed they did
and that they havo been happy
Of tho ladies Mi'sb Blanche
Bates as tho betrothed of tho on
sign was at her best and hud tho
sympathy ot tho audiouco through
out hor difficult part. Tho othor
diameters wore all good, and the
play wari holped out by a squad of
blue jackets from the Adams.
Three entirely now sets o
Bcentrj were introduced, tho first,
a view of Morro Castle, Havana,
with an old timo warship in tho
distaucc,being beautifully painted.
Tho other bcouob represented tho
'tweon decks and Bpar dock of a
man-of-war and merited tho ap
plause thoy received.
Little Marion Roth scored an
other success and had her linc.i
woll committed to memory. Sho
also appeared to havo a good con
ception of her part and wont
through it quito naturally.
Bouquots for the actresses and
calls before tho curtain woro tho
ordorof tho ovoning, nnd nppluuso
was constant and general. Somo
ono sent Mr. Frawloy a bouquet
ou a bamboo polo. It was mado
up of pineapples, oranges, bana
nas and other Hawaiian units.
Taken altogothor Saturday
night's performance was by far
tho most successful yet giveu.
According to tho Nagasaki
paper, a specio3 of privato war
has been ra'ging at that port dur
ing tho past week, between blue
jackets from tho Centurion aud
Bayard, tho British und French
iliigships lespectivoly. Tho row
began by a I'ronchinan striking a
British sailor over tho shouldor;
then this Frenchman and u com
panion woro thrown into tho har
bor. A fow days later 6omo 25
l'renchmeu caught eight LngliBu
soldiers in a saloon nud opened a
light with them by llingiug a boor
bottle at a Britiahor's head. Dur
ing the fight that ensued an Eng
lish sailor was sevotcly stabbed
about tho nock nnd shoulders, and
this man's condition is 6nid to be
critical. The polico notified the
French and English Consulates
of the disgraceful state of affairs,
aud then tho Consuls notified tho
Admirals. Tho result was that
altornato days of leave wero
arranged for. A couple of Mexi
can bluejackets, who Boemod ot
British extraction, assisted tho
English tars in tho last fight.

tho U. S. cruiser Boston ran
aground on a sand-spit in Flying
