lodge roon has passed away.

THE 'GRISWOLD CONCERT
The concert given at tho Opera
House last evening by Miss Grlswold
was a great success artistically. Tlicro
was not on uninteresting number on
the program nnd encores were the rule.
II Is a pity that In a city the size of
Honolulu there should be no more ap
preciation of good music than nas
shown by last night's house, there be
ing a bare hundred on the lower Moor.
Miss Grlswold's singing as alwajs was
most enjoyable, showing the strength
and clearness' of her voice In full, cor
rect tones. Probably the best nuni'er
on the program was her slnglxg of
Gounod's "Chantcz, Rlcz, Donnez,"
rendered with a violin obllgato by

great pleasure to, the audience In het

Miss Carrie Castle's numbers on the
piano were much enjoyed by lovers ol
classical music In their correct Inter
pretation. The opportunity to hear
Prof, Amme's violin playing was most
fortunato and the mauy who did not
hear him hao much to regret. One of
the best received of his numbers was
the "Trnumcrcl" by Schumann, which
was exquisitely sweet Ho Is nn ar.
tlst of rare ability.
All of the performers received flow
ers on their first appearance and the
audience though small was thoroughly
appreciative of the treat they were en
joying. THEIR DEBATES
The attorneys In the Welter con.
splrucy case finished their fight this
morning, the case being taken under
