THE PACIFIC COMMEKCIAL ADVERTISER; HONOLULU, OCTOKKU SH, 1S94.
" SAINTS AND SINNERS." A Large and Fashionable Audience Witnessed It. "Saints and Sinners' drew one of the beat audiences that ha3 been at the Opera House this season be3t, far the reason that it was composed of the better cla?s of theater-goers. In the matter of size, there was a good house. The play was given in a manner that ia a credit to the management. All of the actors did their best, and strove to make an acceptable performance, which was done. The etory of the plot, in miniature, was given in yesterday's AdvkktisKu. It is a ead Etory the story of a man's duplicity and a woman's weakness. Mortimer Snow, as Jacob Fletch er, was admirable. His reception of the news of his daughter's elope ment, his appeal to her to return home, and his defiance of Hog gard, when the latter threatens to expose Lettie, were as good pieces of acting as have ever been seen here. Richard Scott was also capital as George Kingsmill. Hal lett as Captain Fanshaw was good, although the part is totally out of his line. Miss Dalgleish, as Lettie Fletcher, did extremely well. Her appeal to Fanshawe to marry her ; her des pair at finding, after she had been in London with him for a week, that he was already married, and her shame at being found there by her father, were all capitally done. Throughout the whole play, she eeemed to throw herself a3 much as possible into the part, and she deserves great credit for her work. The other female parts were unim portant. Among those present were S. B. Rose and wife, T. F. Lansing and wife, Dr. C. B. Wood and wife, Julian Monsarrat and wife, W. W. Dimond and wife, Fred. Macfar lane and wife, Mr. and Mr3. Nolan, Mr. and Mrs. Taylor, Miss Nolan, Mrs. and the Misses Atkinson, Dr. Miner, Mrs. Hugh Gunn, Miss Corn well, the Misses Kitchen, C. L. Carter and wife, George Smithies and wife. Clarence Macfarlane, Mrs. Robert Lewers, Miss Pullen, Mrs. and Mias Paty, Miss Sorenson, Miss Mclntyre, II. Laws and wife, Mrs. George Macfarlane and many others. From a Clerical roint of View. One of the clergymen who at tended last night's performance, was asked to express hi3 views of it for publication in the Advkktiser. He eaid : As one of the very goodly number of auditors who were at the Opera IIoumo last evening and heard the play of "Saints and Sinners," will you al low me space enough fora few remarks on the play ami on the players. The drama itself is only a vivid represen tation of what is too often a real his tory. The sin of Lettie Fletcher, of course, was the more unaccountable, because of her peaceful surroundings and the training of her estimable father. Still there is no doubt that the lesson to be derived from her fall is the danger of the monotony and strictness of a life known among such Bethel Ites as hers was. The arch hypocrite of the play meets with his deserts to everyone's satisfaction. But the chief sinner, who as usual is a gay officer, Is very quietly slain. He ought to have made some greater expiatiou for his crime. .The venerable minister was excel lent throughout. If he is not an uged man, I have never seen a better per son! tlcation of one. It was pleasant to hear the applause of the audience at the several exhibitions of truth honestly displayed by the old gen tlemen, and the hearty laugh at the simple discernment o. Lot Bur den. Tlie heroine was gix.l, and it was not her fault that she was so long 11 rxtrctai. 'I have heard that persons have ob jected to this play of 'Saints and Sin ners' o account of the religion' that is brought on the stage. I see no rea son why such gMd fellows as the minister should not have their virtues depicted on the stage, nor why such hypocrites a Samuel Hoggard should not be pilloried. There is not a word to oflend the most fastidious ear. At the same time I fail to understand why so much has been made of this theme. It is not in any way like the play of the 'Private Secretary 'where a clergyman of the Church, of Lng land is made to appear as a consum aet n;s. Though thiugs are still uretty bad among professors of relig ion, it is very evident that they have of late decidedly improved. "Mr. Diley may be congratulated on his company a a whole, and be thanked for his energy aud talent in putting so much attraction on our Ho nolulu boards. It is to be hoped that rnanv will see beyond the mere pleas ure of theater-gping, into the region of morality ami lovehne of a good wholesome life.' ; . ; i::-' .-?;iiI-Vj V;-" ? i i f:u iliuz t i HirA r.xxv to.4-.-tm v ;u :::il.

Ho had no idea that the ir.-v-riac laws of that state were of an Ialling nature. II had secured his Ji ceno and thought that was all thr'.fwa necessary. "Have you filed yonrlond y-t'" tal l pome ono to him th? day lmforo the we-1-ding. "What?" gr..rd he. "Your bond," repeated th'i question er. "You know every man who is mar ried in this Ft ate has to file a bond f r the protection of the state." The bridegroom was rather dubious but was linally per?uaded tliat this v.;. a fact. "I'll sec a lawyer about it in the morning, " said he. .So he went to a friend, who was a legal light. Mid sairl: "Sco litre. They tell me I haver, five a bond to tho Ftate vh n 1 : married. " "Certainly. Haven't you done fo?" in a surprised way. "No; I never heard of such a tiling I fore. What kind of bond is it?" "Oh, any real estate will do." "lint I haven't any real estate." The lawyer Iriokcd at him a moment. Then ho solemnly Faid: "Haven't you any friends who own property?" "None that I earo to ask to bind it up that way. I can't ask my bride's relatives, you know." His friend looked at him pityingly. "You can't tostpono tho wedding, can you?" "What?" fairly shrieked the unfor tunate. "Of course, of course not," said the legal light srjothingly. Uut tho poor bridegroom looked stricken. "I'll tell yon what I'll do, old man. I'll tend to tho matter for you. Don't give yourself any more concern about it." Tho young man about to bo married grasped his hand. Ho could not speak for a moment, and then he poured forth his thanks. He picked up his hut in relieved sort of way and walked to tho door. Then ho turned. "I3y tho way, I forgot to ask you how largo is tho amount of tho bond re quired?" "Fifty cents," said tho lawyer. Philadelphia Press. It M-ant Mutiny. Ono morning a British man-of-war was seen entering Hongkong harbor with tho ensign inverted, which is the usual sign of "mutiny on board." Im mediately this was noticed a couplo oZ man-of-war cutters put out, fnll of blue jackets, and dashed across tho harbor toward where, the newcomer had anchor ed. Perhaps it was a little regatta en thusiasm, or perhaps it was purely the spirit of duty which stimulated them, but anyhow a most exciting race e nsued in fact, there was a narrow escapo ef a bad smash as they reached the vessel. There the oflicers and some ef the crew were at tho tafTrail, shouting themselves hoarso and beckoning to tho two boats to come em faster. At last, half dead with their exertion?, yet eager for the fray with the mutineers, tho tars tumbled 'on board and were warmly complimented on their rowing pace. Jt must have blown them badly. Would they have a drink? "A what? Whcro is the mutiny?" gasped tho senior officer in charge of tho boarding party. "Mutiny! There's no mutiny in this ship. Wc are all the best of friends," was the reply. "Then why did yon want us? You yelled loud enough." "Wo thought it was Hong kong regatta Way and wero cheering the winners." Staggered for a moment, the officer pointed inquiringly to tho ensign, ttill flaunting its appeal for aid that was not repaired. "Oh, d a the ly! lie always puts it up wrong if we don't watch him -imply out of stupidity. Let's all go and punch his head." Sr. James Gazette. l.uik.

National Cane Shredder (PATKNTEU UNDEK THE LAWS OF TIIK HAWAIIAN ISLANDS.) Mr. John A. Scott, Manager of the Hilo Sugar Company gives the following wonderful record of the working of the NATIONAL CANE SHRED DER, which was erected by their works at the commence ment of the crop just har vested: "During the past week the Hilo Sugar Company's mill ex ceeded any of its former records by closing the 125 hours grinding with an output of 300 tons. This is fully 10 per cent, more than the best work of former years. 4kThe thiee roller mill being 2G in. by 54 in. and the two roller mill 30 in. by GO in. The first mill doing this amount of work in an efficient manner and with great ease, compared with work on whole cane, owing to thorough preparation of the cane by the National Cane Shredder, recently erec ted by the Company. And by its use the extrac tion has been increased from 3 per cent, to 5 per cent, on all kinds of cane, and in some cases SO per cent, has been reached; the average being 75 to 7S per cent., according to quality. "I continue to find the megass from shredded cane better fuel than from whole cane. "The shredder has been working day and night for seven months and has given me entire satisfaction, having shredded during that time about seventy thousand tons ot cane, and a large part of it being hard ratoons. "The shredder and engine require very little care or attention' ISSTTlans and specifications of these shredders may be seen at the office of Wo. G. Irwin & Co. L'd.
