The Montague-Faust combina
tion, which iimkcHrtUi firet appear
nnco nt tho opera house this even
ing, has been tho recipient of
many flattering prt"i? tintiVrV
during its recent toui of tho
Australian colonies, and tho fol
lowing from tho Otago Daily
Times is given as a sample:
"The reception given to tho
Loudon Bellriugeis and Faiibt
Family on their appearanco at
tho City Hall last cvoniug augura
well for a very successful season
in Dunedin. There was a largo
attendance, the hall being exceed
ingly well filled in every part, and
tho audience marked in the most
enthusiastic maimer their appre
ciation of tho several items in a
varied program encore following
encore. The entertainment proved
that the mombors of this compaot
company are all accomplished
performers in their respective
tinea, and the applause that each
"turn" evoked was in every case
distinctly merited. They are per
fect hosts iu thotnsolvos. Tho
"Ilisloy" act by Ted, Eugene,
Ruby, nnd Freddy is a really
marvellous porlormance, an lrloa
of which can only bo inadequately
convoyed by tho pon. The sight
of Tod Faust lying, with certain
nrtificisl supports, on his back on
the stage and throwing Freddy in
double somersaults from his feet
and catching him on them again,
or tossing lluby about liko a
ball or twirling her rouud liko a
wheel tho latter similo beingsug
gested by tho fact that in this
particular performance the little
girl holds at arm's length one of
hor feot iu each hand causes ono
nlmot to catch one's breath; and
that is only a portion and por
liupb not tho most wonderful por
tion uf tho "Ilisloy" act, hut it is
enough to awaken a profound nd
miration for tho Fausts' tumbling
performance and particularly for
Ted Faust's arduous sharo of it.
Nothing cleaner or more perfect
in execution than the Faints' ex
hibition has boon seon in Duuediu
iu their lino of Im-miess, and it
is unnecessary to add that they
reooived quite an ovation.
"Tho Whito Alarblo Statuary" -representations
of well known
monumental efforts by tho FaiiBtB
was much admirod, and tho ox
troraoly ludicrous musical "turn"
by Ted and Eugene, entitled
"Wagner Out-Wagnored," pro

In the interview with Mr. H. E.
Cooper published in tho Boston
Transcript and rcprintod in to
day's Advertiser, that gentleman
is stated to have said, talking
about tl) coffee industry ou theso
islands: "The soil is rich and
mauy put a portion of their hold
ings into coffee pluts at first and,
while Uiey-aie growing, support
themselves mit their wfujilies by
raising TegotaVilos aud, fowls on
tho louiairiiug portiou. Tho cli
tnato is vo equal that a constant
succession of oropu is possiblo.
Tho vegetable raiser will pull a

at once put iu tho seed for another
Now, Mr. Editor, as you are
pretty well posted on tho colfoo
planting iudustry, would you
kindly inform mo whero those
parties live on these islands who
manage to cm ry on their planta

The Lauai Land and Develop

under tho laws of Iluuuii, having
for its objpr1 Hv development of
tliu lands ul the (iibnoti E-ttito '
iiuu 10 lauuuiu ijrupurui'H biuiaiu
ou tho island of Lanai. Tho
capital stock of tho now corpora
tion is 8250,000, divided in 2500
shares of 100 each, tho whole
of which has been subscribed.
Tho officers of the company elect
ed at tho fiiRt meeting of tlie
Board of Diiectors are F. II.
Hayselden, president; Georgo
Herbert, vice-president; B. D.
Walbridge, ecrotary; B.H.Drnper,
troaBuror, and L. M. Votloseu,
Tho properties to bo handled
by this corporation comprise
about 55,000 acres of land, suita
ble for grazing or agriculture.
It is proposed to devolop tho
water supply in various parts of
tho island, improve the cattle and
sheep now ou tho range by tho
importation of blooded stock, aud
in other ways mako tho Lanai
property a raoro productive ono
in tho future than it has boon in
It is also proposed lo osta'olish
a sugar plantation on the lowlands

facing Lahaina.rheso extend back
from tho shoro at distances vary
ing from a quarter to half a milo
to a rooky bluff, betwoeu which
and the shoro lino tho avorago
olovation does not exceed fifty
feot. Experiments mndo with tho
soil on theso lands show thoir
adaptability to tho cultivation of
cauo, and from surface indications
an abundance of water can bo ob
tained at slight expenso for irriga
tion purposes. It is proposed to
devolop tho water supply by run
ning tunnols into the bluff and
cross cutting tho water courses as
is done in Lahaina, aud also by
sinking artesian wells. Tho laud
which can thus bo mndo nvailablo
for a sugar plantation contains iu
all about 1100 acres, sutlicieut to
raiso whon fully cultivated a crop
of 5000 tons of sugar.
As boforo stated tho capital
stock of tho com puny is fully sub

Among tho arrivals at tho Pa

For two or threo years past he
has held an oxclusivo concession

In There Will lint to be n I'rn ,
The now Oahu Sugar Company,
of which so much has been said
and so little roally known, is at
Inst an accomplished fact. In
stead of the stock being taken iu
Gormnuy, as had been expected, it
has all been taken here since last
ovening, and subscriptions aro
still pouring iu.
Tho linal ngreomeut, which will
result in tho formation of tho
largest sugar plantation on tho
island of Oahu, was reached last
ovening between Messrs. H.
Unokfeld & Co. ou tho ono hand,
and Messrs. B. F. Dillingham aud
Mark Bobiusou, representing tho
owuors and lessees of tho proper
ties to bo utilized, on tho othor.
A corporation ia to be established
under tho laws of Hawaii, with a
capital of $1,800,000. Of this
Messrs H. Hackfold & Co. sub
scribe 500,000. and assumo tho
agency of tho now plantation.
Tho parties interested in tho
tract of laud to bo used as the
plantation, mill sites, etc., get bo
tween $100,000 and $500,000 in
stock at various times as rents,
purchase price of their interests,
etc., which leaves about $800,000
to no subscribed in the opou
At noon today it was estimated
that at least $1,000,000 worth of
stock had been taken around
town. Auctioneer Morgan was
soliciting subscriptions for tho
now stock most of tho morning,
nnd nt noon tho amount booked
by Harry Armitago his clerk hnd
just about reached tho $300,000
figure. This represents bona fide
subscriptions and does not include
several blocks of stock applied
for some lime since by parties
whom Mr. Morgan had been uu
abl" I bee since the uew dtal
F. C. Jonos has also taken
orders for a good deal of stock
during tho morning, tho amount
of which was not obtainable.
Mr. Dillingham lino also a
ltngo list of subscriptions which
piub'ibly exceed in am'uint thoso
obtained by Mr. Morgan. Theso
aro from porsonal friends and
business inon who aro interested
in tho Avolfarn of tho railroad
company and tho country general
ly, and are from such firms and
private individuals as Cnstlo &
Cooke, Lowors & Cooke, J. B.
Atherton, Chas. M. "Cooke, S. C.
Allen, W. F. Alton and others.
It waB reported about town that
Sara. Allen had otfored to 6iib
scribo for $200,000 ot the stock, if
tho company would allow him
the oxclusivo privilege of furnish
ing tho lnmlier it needed. It was
also reported that tho offer was
declined, at least until tuo othor
lumber companies had boon given
a chanco to subscribe. It was
also said that Chas. M. Cooke
would probably take another
$200,000 on his return from the
Coast. "While these largo sub
scriptions may bo only street
rumors the.ro is no doubt that
both those gentlemen will invest
heavily in tliu now plantation.
At noon today a BuLLUTJtf re
porter wr giveu a few miuntos of
Mr. Dillinf ham's timo. Ho was
overjoyed, tlnugh almost astound
ed, at tho sueceos of tiro now pro
ject, wlindi exceeded his wildest
and fonde&t hopes In resphnpft
to a lequest f r the prospectus of
the company, he said ho was go
ing to work on it this afternoon
and it would bo given out as soon
as possible Ono had already beeu
propared for tho old plan by which
tho bulk of tho stock was to be
subscribed in Genu ny, but undor
