girl reared In tho purest of tho largo
amount of (lno homo atmosphere in
Honolulu went to tho concert and
operatic stage and had a career which
it were stinting of uescrlption to call
As Annls Montaguo and as (Mrs.)
Annls Montngue-Turner, tho Hawaiian
Nightingale, was first tho vogue and
then tho fixture In tho esteem of the
opera tin tiatrons and critics of the
United States, Australia and Now Zea
land. Sho had genuine triumphs In
all tho great cities of these countries
and to this day they write and urgo
her to como back for n neason and to
remain indefinitely. In Australia they
claim her as their own and will not
hear to Hawaii's contention for right
to title by priority of possession.
"Tho theater goers of Australia,"
said an official of ono of tho colonics of
tho continent, hero a few years ago,
''aro 'at times qulto enthusiastic, per
haps, but one could scarcely conceive
that thoy could bo overcomo by emo
tion that they could develop or create
such emotion as sometimes gain con
trol of audiences In the United States
or Europe. But Annls Montague put a
spoil over Sydney onco nnd they will
never forget her, novcr ccaso praising
her, never waver In undivided loyalty
10 her, never have another take' her
place. She waa ruler of many cities
In the colonies, but of Sydney sho was
tho queen. On tho occasion of. one en
gagement there, and I think It was tho
second of tho same season, they In
duced her to take a benefit. Now, you
must know that giving benoflta to
stago favorites Is a much moro com
mon practlco in British communities
than it Is in tho States, and wo suc
ceeded In convincing her that the
friends who urged this upon her by
word of mouth nnd In letters really
meant what they said and know lots of
other people who thought tho samo
way ns themselves on the subject.
Well, that benefit surpassed anything
like it that has ever happend before
and It has not been equalled slnco.
Money was not tho consideration with
the lady and artist or with any of ub,
but tho managers had a box office
balance sheet showing -that set tho
high water monoy mark of cotonlal
houses. Sho sang to moro titles and
moro notables than many of tho most
traveled and ablest stars aro privileg
ed to see In a whole lifetime. It was
something grand and culminating In
every way. Wo nil bcllovcd, I re
member, that Annls Montague was
prouder for her husband, tho magnifi
cent tenor, later cut oft In his prime,
than for herself and, as I say, It was
all something for her that would have
dono honor to nnyono on earth.
When the ovenlng was at Inst ovor.tho
aolldest and swollest men of tho place,
ino lltcrnry nnd musical and artistic
lions; tho politicians nnd business
princes, tho titles and money bags
rushed for her carriage and, cheered
by tho Indies, took tho horses away
and themselves drew the vehicle to her
hotel. 'Ibis carrlngo and a couplo of
others following were nilcd with flow
ers and other gifts. Honestly, they
could not have dono moro tor Her Ma
jesty and they uro still sighing for
Annls Montngue, the woman nnd tho
singer to como back."
The Hawaiian Nightingale is now
settled In Honolulu nnd her beautiful
coaago on Ucretanla avenue, not far
from 1 nomas Square, Is nnmed
Mlgnon, for In Mlgnon Annls Montngue
sang, alternating with tho famous
Mario Rose. This was In America and
nmong tho cities visited wcro Now
ork, Boston, Washington, Baltimore,
Chicago, Cincinnati, St. Louis and
sovernl others capablo In their day of
supporting a season of grand opera.
Annls Montague sings In Hnllan and
English with equal facility and has
been praised qulto as much for her
acting as her singing. Hers was con
ceded co bo tho peer of any Carmen.
At various times tho natlvo of Hono
lulu nel was tho principal prima don
nn of such great organizations as the
Hess, Kollogg and Abbott companies
nnd ovcrywhero was recognized as be
ing nmong those at tho head of tho
profession. Mlgnon cottago Is tho first
musical center of Honolulu. It was
ncro mat the hostess used six months
in preparing her city company to pro
sent II Trovatoro for the reopening of
tho Opera House in Novembor, 189G,
when sho sung tho chief part and di
rected everything. She knows all the
grand o.xjrns to tho noto of the scores
and has at tho tip of hor tonguo tho
words In two languages. Tho lady,
slnco tho production of ll.Trovatore
has been heard here at various social
and charltablo entertainments and as
tho leader In slngtng when exorcises
aro held Indoors on tho Fourth of
July. She Is over willing to contribute
to any program for a proper benefit
fund or for a worthy audience. And
sho puts forth as much effort to plcaBo
tho urchins of a mission school ns to
cater to the niidlcnco.nt a select must
calo. Mary Cooko Is to be heard at the
Opera Houso hero again soon. Sho Is
to sing Marguerite for the Boston Lyr
ic Company's production of "Faust"
on Tuesday next, the 19th Inst. This
is on tho request of hundreds of town
people nnd out of friendship to Col.
Thompson, tho manager, and many
members of the troupe.
When tho writer called nt "Mlgnon"
a fow ovenlngs ngo ho 'found tho lady
of tho home studio or studio homo In
specting thrco Marguerito costumes.
One was tho dress of a German girl,
ono was white and ono Vas gray.
"This Is tho first time I've gone Into
tho trunks since I put away tho Tra
vatoro dresses. You seo what I've
found at the bottom, of course. They
look fairly well by tho fading day, but
I'll try them by electric light this
ovenlng nnd If I have any trouble in
making a selection then, I must havo
an entirely now one.
"A picture for you? Coitalnly.
Here's ono made In tho States.
"I'm entirely willing to tell how
mnny times I'vo appeared In Faust and
don't mind even saying that I first
undertook tho role In 18S0. That fig
ures out some years ago, but Isn't so
many, mnny years in tho past, after
all. I am very fond of Marguerite, but
