"NEW DOMINION" A SUCCESS
Clay Clement and Company In Tbelr
Clay Clement Central Figure Superb Acting
Throughout Play Good Attendance and
Great Pleasure Afforded.
Of the "Now Dominion" as pro
duced afathe Opera House last
night the theatre going public
may say, no finer prodnotion'has
evor beon given in Honolulu.
In his work before a representa
tive Honolulu audienco Clay Cle
ment showed himself a wonderful
aotor, entering completely into
tho oharaoter of a German noble
man as the Baron Franz Victor
von HohenstauQen. From the
time he stops ou tho stage nntil
the curtain coos down, be is the
aamo German gentleman, polished
ana reserved and impressiog bis
audience with a fooling of.a vast
amount of cnercy reservedV H!b
acting is oertainly'truo to tho life
bo seeks to depiot.
To many of those in the house,
there was a eu-gestion of Bichard
Mansfield in his Benu Brummel,
tho calm, cool and deliborate man
ner of Clay Oloment's acting and
tbe attitudes produced no doubt
bringing about this impression1.
The "New Dominion" ib a'char
actoristio play of tho South with
all the suggestion of the romantic
Southern atmopphero and the
proud, stately bearing of South
ern gentility.' The Baron von
Hohenstauffen appears on tho
scone as a botanist completely ab
sorbed in tho study of flowers
and plants, falls in lovo with the
pretty daughter of Normnn Edgar
Randolph, stays at tho Bandolph
homo the summor through, pays
court to the girl he has net his
heart upon, finds difficulty in
speaking oither German or En
glish while making his proposal
of marriage and is told by tho
foir Flora that, on account of a
duty to perform she cannot wed
A villain baa already appeared
on the scono. He first courts
Martha, a mountain oirl. but
throws her ovor and seeks the
hand of Flora Bandolph. Booom
ing incensed at an ooourronco in
the Bandolph household one day,
ne swears ne wilt toreoloso tne
mortgage on tbe houso which he
has inherited from bis father un?
less tbe hand of Flora is given
him in marriage. Tho Baron's
hand works out tho aalvatiou of
tho Bandolph family.
Ed. M. Bell as Mr. Bandolph
is excellent in his role as a South
ern gentloman and too much
raise cannot be givon "Napoleon
Randolph," the old colored slave,
for bis most faithful character
ization. Nothing was overdone
by Mr. Boll. The part of Mar
shall Bonor, tho villain, was very
well taken. " '
Miss Bortha Foltz as Miss
Flora May Bandolp was a sweet,
trusting girl, brimful of energy
and showing to great advantage
in her part. Mrs. Clay Clement
as Mrs. Josephine Dulaney did
tho part of the widow very well
indeed. In fact, the whole oast
was very good
After this, the plays by tho
Clay Clement Co. will end before
11 o'olook. The delay last night
was exousablo on account of tbe
faot that the company had just .
Tomorrow, tbe Clay Clement
Co. will play tho Lady of Lyons
in matinee and in the evoning
will come the physlogical drama
played by Irving, "The Bells."
Clay Clement has already won
renown in this production.

contract will soon bo place.
Few of the new plantations
have made more rapid progress in
development than Maunalei under
Mr. Stodart management. "We
have a good sized town on tho is
land now" remarked the managor,
"a good sized area i'b under cultiv
ation and anyone who visits the
plantation cau seo that we have
not been idle since last March.
"At the landing a very substan
tial wharf has been built, and a
railroad to tho camp two miles
distant is in operation with a rol
ling stock of a locomotive and
njuotoon cars. Inoluding the lab
orers quarters we have at tho plan
tation fifty buildings, and tho new
buildings in contemplation nro
the pumping plants and tbe mill,
a very respectable town atrn u
very busy one. 1
"Aside from preparing the fields
for cultivation our work is center
ed on the pumping plants. Al
ready nine twelve, inch wells nro
giving a largo flow of nure, clear
water for irrigation. One pump
ing plant will have a capacity of
five million pallous a day raised
fifty feet; tho othor plant will
have a capacity of three million
gallons raised 250 feet. After
many dolays, owing to tho im
mouso freight traffic between Ho
nolulu and San Francisco, tho
pumps are nowon tho ground and
tho work of establishing is to bo
pushed as fast qb possible
"iwo moro plants will bo put
in very eoou about throe miles
distant to irrigato nn additional
area now boing prepared for cane.
"We havo 400 laborers, most
freo laborers, now at work and
will have 200 moro in h few week.
The first orop will be ready to
grind in 1901 and I have no doubt
the yield per aero will bo entiroly
satisfactory. The land is proving
all that was promised and I have
nodoubt of the substantial returns
to tho stockholders."

HAMILTON, BROWN SHOE CO.'S
For Sale by Manufacturer' Shoo
Soldier Aboard Zealandia Lost His Htm
Doctors Declare Him Physically All Right Prac
tically Htlpless and Unfit for Ser-ilca-Caie
A most extraordinary oaso of
montal discombobalatioa among
the soldiers on board tbe trans
port Zoalandia on ronte to Manila
was brought to tho notice of a
Bulletin reporter this morning.
PrivatoOole of Co. D, of the
Twenty-ninth Infantry is practic
ally i helpless and invalidod man,
ho cannot walk tho decks of tbo
vessel without the assistance of
his comrades, his features are
drawn and haggard, while bis
sunken eyes are full of a nameless
terror and awful fear.
Captain Liddell of Co. D, was
desirous of leaving Colo in Hono
lulu at tho U. S. General Hospital,
but the regimental doctor declared
that there was nothing physically
thd matter with the man and tbat
bo was perfectly able to go to tho
front with tbo rest; so that Colo
will have to go along with hia
company, though bo is piactioally
unfit as a soldier.
Captain Liddell informed tho
reporter that Cole first showed
signs of his present oondition
during target practico just aftor
the regiment had boon rocruited
in Georgia. Ho enlisted in perfect
health and good spirits, but whou
it came to practising with his gun
terror seemed to merze him, nis
nerve collapsed and ho could do
nothinR but crouch iu fear and
The opinion of all who know
tbo man is that be is simply Bear
ed. Some of the officers believe be
is trying to get his discharge,
having allowed his imagination to
dwell upon tbo chances of war
until ho Las lost all grit and pluck
and wants to go homo.
"It is the most remarkable case
I over had undor my notice" said
Captain Liddell, "the man is real
ly unfit for service, he is fright
ened at tho report of a gun and
hasn't a grain of sand in his make
up. it is very unfortunate that
we have to take him along with
us. Mou are eomotiraos affected
a little that way just before a bat

and very often prove some of the
bravest iu a fight but it Beoms to
me that this is a hopeless case .of
