Somehow there is nn unnnmenble
strength in Hoyt’s trndo-mnrk which ap

the minds of tho most fashionable as
well us the masses. This fnct is forcibly
demonstrated by the enormous demand
for seats for the first presentation in'this
city of Hoyt’s masterpiece “A Contented
Woman,” at the opera house Saturday
evening. This comedy is pronounced
infinitely superior to any of Hoyt’s pre -
vious writings. Everywhere it has been
presented the theatres have had tho
seating capacity severely tested, and
standing room has bten at a premium.
Critics everywhere have been enthusi
astic in their praises, not only for the
cleverly constructed play, but the capa
ble artists Mr. Hoyt has engaged to pre
sent it. f J he scenery is fine, and the
music of that bright, catchy order that
so readily appeals to tho public car. The
specialties are up-to-date and strikingly
novel, and the costuming gorgeous. Miss
Bello Archer, one of tho most beautiful
American women now beforo the public
will be seen in the title role.

ten January 10, 1800. He says: “On ac
count of doing outpost duty since ar
riving here, excepting in September,
when we were detailed to guard the old
Spnnish prison which is called Bilibli,
have delayed writing to you. Tho
American authorities have taken one
side for a military prison. It was quite
a sight to witness the prisoners building
stone houses and tearing them down
again. The Phillipino convicts have a
well trained brass band who play tho

“I will not attempt to give you a his
tory of Munilu. 1 do not know where
Mr. Gibbs is located at the present time.
Have not seen him for a long time. All
the boys from Central are in company L,
and are fot-ling well, excepting Michael
Prisk. Ho is so fat that one would take
him for a Dutch volunteer. The Christ
mas box sent by the good ladies of Cen
tral arrived all right, for which they
have the blessings, if not the prayers, of
tho entiro company. As a remembrance
of an old friend, I send you a box of
cigars. Would send you some rice, but
havo oaten eo much of it since we ar
rived here that 1 hate tho sight of it n 3
much as I do the face of a Phillipino.”
He closes his letter with kind remem
brance to his friends in Gilpin county.
In this connection Thk Ouskhvkr will
state that Captniu Hooper has recoived
tho box of cigars, each cigar being
wrapped nicely in tin foil. Ilis office in
Granito House block, on Lawrence
street, is very fragrant einoo ho received
them, ns ho divided thorn up with those
calling on him.
