THE FIRST ANNIVERSARY
of the Algaroba Lodge I. O. G. T.,
having arrived the members deter
mined to celebrate it by a Concert and
Social held in the Y. M. C. A. Hall
on Monday night. The Hall was
crowded with the members and their
friends some even finding room on
The hall was beautifully decorated
with flags, ropes of ferns, mottos
and groups of ferns and flowers and
an impromptu stage was screened
off with the Hawaiian and American
Hags. All of this beautiful work was
due to the tasteful hands of Mr. J.
The meeting was opened by Mr.
Athcrton who gave a short address
on the history of the formation of
tho Lodge from which we gather that
50 members organized the Lodge
and that now, notwithstanding that
many have left the islands, there
are 97 in good standing on the books.
The following programme was then
gone through :
Piano Solo Fantasic on 'Martha' by
Thalberg Mrs. Howler
Address Temperance in these Inlands
Quartette Moonlight on the Lake
Mrs. Pearce, Mr.-. Damon, Mr. "W. W.
Hall, and Mr. Bradley.
Reading Drunk as a brute.Mr. Crowley
,, . ( Mrs. Pcarcc

Tableau The Gipsy's warning
Miss Fillibrowu, Miss M. Bolster, and
Mr. J. McGuire.
Duct Very Suspicious Miss
M. Bolster, and Mr. J. McGuire.
Recitation : M iss J. Hare
Song Non E Ver Mattei Mr. W
Comic Operetta The Peak Sisters
Miss Lack, and 9 others
Of the more excellent' pieces in the
above programme we may mention
Mrs. Bowler's Piano solo, Mrs. Has
tie's address, the tableau, in which
the well-known song of the Gipsy's
warning was pleasingly sung by
Miss Fillibrowu, the Duet Very Sus
picious which took the audience by
storm and was rapturously encored,
Mr. "Wood's song,
which was en
cored: he responded by singing
Ascher's Alice, Where art thou.
Last but not least the Comic ope
retta which raised storms of ap
plause and shouts of laughter as the
various sisters, twins, etc., took
their part in the performance. We
hope to see this repeated at no dis
D urine the evening Mrs. Bowler
acted as accompanyist to the various
songs, duets, and concerted pieces
and gave thorough satisfaction to
everybody by the sympathetic way
in which she assisted the performer
while interpreting the exact shade of
the composer's meaning.
After this excellent performance
had been thoroughly enjoyed ice
cream, cake, and lemonade were
passed round by the members who
were assiduous in their devotion to
their guests. Tho only thing to mar
the joy of the occasioti -was at the
close, the sad accident to Master
Thos. McGuire, a full account of
which will be found in another

this morning, by E. P. Adams.
The only solace one of our readers
has at night is to listen to the melodious
'bus,-horn and wonder if the proprietor
will ever provide something out of
which a pleasing sound can be drawn
without reminding one of the fish and
old clo' dealers of 'Frisco.
Wh have interviewed the Auditor
General about a suggestion in the Press
that the Treasury balances were made
up of I. O. U's. He states that uothiug
of the kind has ever been in the
Treasury. Nothing has been there but
current coin except a trifling amount in
worn, defaced, and damaged coin which
will be Edit to the coast shortly to be
exchanged for dimes and half-dimes.
Tjie welcome rain has come again.
Steadily, unceasingly , it poured yester
day pouring gladness into many hearts
and dollars into many pockets. The
price of many stocks will go up after
this rain which, we learn, is pretty
general over the island. Here in town
such rains solve the water-supply pro
blem for a time.

, Yesterday the lightning played some
strange freaks with the telephone wires.
About half-past two o'clock as Mr.
II. Watcrhouse was listening at the tele
phone, a shock of electricity passed from
the telephone through his body. The
electric spark was distinctly seen hy
those around. It fortunately inflicted
no injury beyond the sensation of having
grasped a galvanic battery.
Yesterday Chief Justice Judd, Mrs.
Judd, and family were to have started
for Kualoa, Koolaupoko, but the wet
weather prevented them. If the weather
is line they Avill start to-day by way of

While the icecream and cakes were

social a sad accident happened to Mas
ter Thos. McGuire, Ho had gone inot
the unfinished gymnasium room to as
sist his brother Joseph (who had been
masquerading as one of the Peak sis
ters) to disrobe. There was no light in
the room and the only standing-room
was a narrow platform running nlong
the wall and 12 feet above the unfinished
rocky floor below. In the dark ho
stepped back and fell down that dis
tance pn to the rocks. When picked up
he was insensible. Dr. Hagan was sent
for and no bones were found broken
At lustcst nccounts ho was doing well.
TERRIBLE DISASTER IN ITALY.
A terrible catastrophe occurred on
June 24 at the village of Dervio,
near Como, A large number of
country people had flocked into tho
village to some local fete or fair, ind
about one hundred persons hud as
sembled in a large room over a'
public-house to witness n marionette
entertainment belonging to Signor
Saiirana, a travelling showman well
known in the rural districts of
Northern Italy. The principal item
in the programme was announced to
be a tragedy entitled "The Mar
tyrdom of St. Philomena," and in
tho course of tho performance some
sparks from a Bengal light used in
the entertainment to represent a fire
fell upon a quautity of straw and
firewood stored close to the building
and set tho inflammable stuff on fire.
The proprietor of tho marionettes
raised n cry of "Fire," but no one
moved, the audience being under tho
impression that his object was
merely to make the performance
more realistic. Shouts of "Fire,
lire 1" were then heard from outside,
but the people within tho tavern,
thinking that there was an affray
proceeding in the street, instead of
trying to escape, barricaded the
door by placing a heavy table against
it. Before the unfortunate people
had time to discover their mistake
the flames burst upon them, and an
awful panic ensued. Amidst the
the curses and yells of men, and tho
shrieks and lamentations of women,
a terrible rush was made to the only
doorway. But the heavy, unwieldy
table lay directly in the way of the
half-maddened crowd, and before
any cool and united attempt could
be made to remove the obstacle such
a course had been rendered impossi
ble by the fearful crush, and ere
long there was piled upon and under
and around the tabic tin almost in
distinguishable mass of men, women,
and children. To add to the horror
of the scene, the fire had meanwhile
leaped from the stage along the dry
wooden floor of the room, which was
now in full flame. Scores who had
uot become entangled in the fatal
crush leaped through the windows
on to the street below, most of them
being thereby more or less injured,
cither by the fall itself or from being
cut by the broken glass, for, in their
frantic efforts to escape from the
burning room, no attempt seems to
have been made to open the windows.
One young mother threw her child
out of the window, and it was the
only creature of the whole audience
really unhurt, for it alighted without
harm on a heap of straw. When the
room was entered after the fire had
been subdued, forty-eight charred
bodies were found close to the table,
and several other people were injured
more or less severely. Signor
Satirana escaped with slight in-
juries, and will be
able to give lm
but his mother
and wife are among
A New York State man who tried
a flying-machine of his'own invention
recently, had no advice to give to
those who crowded around. All he
said was, "Wprk in 'durncd fool'
somewhere or my tombstone ! "
