Theater Crowded and Audience Enthusiastic Excellence of Cast Memters-Catnile. tluel scene was applauded to the echo. , leagues southwet of the city of Mexico Mr. Hernan.iez' Peter was very funny and brought down the hout?e every time he yawned. Miss Dover's Lady Capulet was dig nified and well sustained. Mr. Bong's made a capital Friar Law rence. F. II. A. WEARS A MEDAL. The Janet Waldorf company at a matinee on Saturday afternoon played Camille to a reasonably good audience. Miss Waldorf, although not up to her usual mark, nevertheless gave a very pleasing performance of Camille. The scene with Geo. Duval where Camille renounces his son, was strong and tonchingly rendered. The death scene was very realistic and pathetic, but her face lacked the pallor of a dying con sumptive and the hacking cough and hoarse voice which have made Mod jeska famous, are wanting. Mr. McXay's Geo. Duval and Mr. Mc Greggor's Armand Duval were excel lent. The critical people of Honolulu were evidently awaiting Romeo and Juliet, which was performed on Saturday evening, as the crucial test of Miss Waldorf's genius. The opera house was packed to standing room only in both floor and gallery by the flower of Honolulu. Miss Janet Waldorf's Juliet was in all respects equal, excepting, perhaps, the balcony scene, to Julia Marlowe's rendering of the role. The flirting scene, at the dance, where she first sees Romeo, and the potion scene were rem iniscent of the divine Neilson. No greater praise could be given. The potion scene, where Juliet im agines w hat terrors might come should she awake before the time allotted, while in the tomb of her ancestors, is the most realistic thing she does. Ap plause greeted Miss Waldorf through out and she was three times called to the curtain during the performance. So excellent was her performance of Juliet that on every hand Was heard the comment that had Romeo and Juliet been the first performance, the success of the Waldorf company would have been the most brilliant in the annals of the opera house. Mr. McVay's Mercutio is beyond criticism. The part of Mercutio" re quires good reading and this Mr. Mc Vay did in the most finished style, keeping the audience in .roars of laugh ter. His death scene (joking to the : last) was applauded. Mr. McGregor's Romeo was played with feeling and spirit and shows that the young man has great talent. The .Musician Who Volunteered to Nurse Yellow Fever. Frank Martinez, a member of the Thirteenth Infantry band, now on board the Senator, wears on his breast a handsome Tiffany medal. Martinez, although not an immune, volunteered as a nurse in the yellow fever hospital -at Siboney during the Santiago cam paign. He was placed in charge of a ward occupied by officers of the army and newspaper men who were at the front. A'bout twenty-five of his pa tients who survived decided to reward the brave fellow. All contributed to the purchase of the pretty medal, which has been wrought out of solid gold. It is fashioned in a Maltese cross pendant from an engraved bar bearing the word "Santiago" in red enamel. A hospital red cross on the medal is wreathed with green leaves. The four arms of the cross are lettered with the following': "Siboney, Cuba, July, 1S9S." Km ma Square Concert. The band will play the following at Emma Square this evening: PART I.
