"Wo know that the social evil will

"To put thorn on exhibition, under
the wing of tho police department. Is
nothing mnro than tho creation of a

of the community after the stockade
Is locked up which I believe will be 'n
a very short time."

FLORENCE ROBERTS WINS
' NEW HAWAIIAN LAURELS
Audience Last Night Was Captivated
by the Charming Actress in the
Quaint Old English
The second appearance of Florence
Roberta before a Honolulu-audience"
gives her a more certain hold upon the
affections of the theater goers as a
favorite. As Nell Qwynne at the Ha
waiian Opera House last night, sba
made a pronounced success. The audi
cneo was responsive to a startling de
grco compared with the usual apathetic
thruug that mutely sees tho passing
Bhow. Florence Roberts plays to tbtf
hearts of her auditor.
As quaint, charming Nell Qwyimc,
tho tomboy of Drury Lane, and orange
monger at the Klng'H theater, shu
caught tho fancy of the nuillence In tho
first act. The early English story of
court Intrigue In tho time of Charles II,
was told as an artist, by Ilelasio's star.
Paul Ronton ns the King nnd Lucius
Henderson us Jack Mnrdyn. Nell's
Drury I.ane llanie, are tho only two
men who have a chance to do any
thing In this play. They acquitted
themselves with credit but as a stage
rharuitcr, Henderson disappoints the
audlenco momentarily, with the eay
Indifference with which he transfers
his affections from the Inimitable Null
to the Lady In Waiting.
Tho Rreen Room sccue at Klug's Old
Drury was cleverly depicted and was
the flavor of the whole piny.
Curtain cnlls were numerous lait
nUht and It was plain to bo seen that
the peoplo of Honolulu have opened
wldo their arms to embrace Florence
Roberts who. In two performances, has
pioved her versatility nnd shown that
she shines In puro comedy ns well as In
the delineation of tho emotions.
Tomorrow night the drama of Car
men will be produced.
