sary of his birth is always the sig
nal for his countrymen in this vicf-
nity to meet and sing the songs of
Auld Lang Syne: This year all
previous efforts of the Hilo Burns
Club in the way of anniversary en
tertainment were surprasscd. The
birthday of Burns always means a
banquet, a ball or a concert in Hilo
and the hospitality of the Scotsmen
is extended to many who never saw
the laud of Bums.
This year it was a concert at
Sprocket's Hall nnd it was one of
the best of Hilo's many high class
home talent entertainments. The
hall was crowded with nn appreci
ative audience. There were seven
teen numbers on the program as

Musical Selection Hilo Orchestra
"Auld Lang Syne" By the Audience
Musical Director, airs. Jarrett T. Lewis.
Every number on the program
was generously applauded and the
encores were responded to in
eacli case greatly to the pleasure of
the audience. The Hilo public
was especially interested in the
first appearance of the Amateur
orchestra and looks forward to
many future pleasant hours under
the spell of music that reminds
everyone ol Home. 1 tie new or
chestra is directed by Mrs. J. T.
Lewis, and is composed of the fol
lowing persons: Paul Bartels. C.
N. Prouty, Carl S. Smith, Mrs.
Moses, Miss Emily Peck, Mrs.
Tracy, Jules Carvalho, Mr. James,
Keith Mackie. G. F. Affonso, Miss
Sarah Lyman, W. Raesdale and
Geo. Hapai. The final piece by
the orchestra was a Scottish air and
took the house by storm. Hilo's
popular vocalists, Mrs. Paul Bat
tels, Mrs. A. C. McKeuncy, Mrs.
Homer L. Ross and the Elk quar
teete, all won new laurels on' this
occasion. The piece by the mixed
quartette, composed of Mesdames
Ross and McKeuney and Mcssers
Prouty and Howlaud was consid
ered especially fine, as was also the
inimitable duet by V. C. Cook and
"The Genius of Robert Burns"
was the subject of the Eulogy of
the evening, pronounced by W. C.
Cook of Papaikou.
The arrangements for the anni
versary concert were faultless in
every detail. The Burns Club de
monstrated again that it knows
how to handle a proposition.

Honolulu, Jan. 22. Fears of
financial loss among those who did

depositary. Cashier Cooper received
in the Coptic mail the following
letter from the Treasury Depart
ment which explains itself:
