The Christianised Little Ones of the Chi

They ITav* Learned—An
One ot tbe most unique und ami-sin-?
entertainments hold here for some time
wm tbe annual exerolses of tbe Obines*
kindergarten, given at the First Pres
byterian eburcb yesterday afternoon.
The church was crowded by old and
young alike, who watched the little con
yerted brethren with great interest and
laughed heartily over the antics of sev
eral of the class.
The church was filled long before tbe
cpssing time of the entertainment, nml
shortly after 2:30 o'clock tbe class made
its appearance in charge of the teacher,
Miss Reynolds. Tbey were taken in
carriages from tbe school in Chinatown
to tbe ohnrch and marched down tbe
aisle and took seats upon the platform,
facing;the audience. There were 1.1 in all,
five boys and eight girls, and were
grouped in a semicircle, very similar
to the seating in tbe opening act of a
minstrel show. The costumes were
especially brilliant and picturesque.
Grave Charlie Sing, the biggest and old
est of the class, was seated in tbe mid
dle and looked for all tbe world the per
fect picture of the interlocutor, without
the burnt cork.
On biß right hand was Anna Sing,
then Francis Sing, tbe mite of tbe class,
then Hong, An Lon, Fuug Hoy and
Yuen Hoy. On Charlie Sing's left
were six more, seated in the following
order: Mansie Sing, Clara Sing, Ah
Saon, Ah Sin, Ah Qing aud Ah Chung.
Above the clbbs and in tbe choir gal
lery were seated a number of ladies, in
cluding Mrs. Minor, who presided, Mrs.
Dlmmlck and Mrs. Chapin, who made
Tbe Christmas tree containing the
gifts was at the right side of the plat
form. The choir rair was banked with
evergreens, covered in places with cot
ton batting to represent snow. It was
most amusing to see the curiosity of tbe
13 Chinese, tbe eldest about 11 years
and tbe youngest about 2 years old.
Their bright, little, bead like eye* kept
wandering from place to place, bat
nearly every one kept bis or her seat
and looked as grave as judge.
Hong, who was attired in pink and
light green Chinese clothes, waa irre
pressible. He seemed to be hung on
strings. First be would hop up, then
he would sit down again, and the teach
ers would breathe a sigh of relief; but
not for long. The next instant Hong
would be playing with some one near
him, or else turning bis back npon the
audience and talking to some of the
ladies seated in the choir gallery. Once
be turned to Ah Lou, a bashful little
girl seated next to bim, and proceeded
to put bis arm around and cartbs ber in
the most approved and enfig'fitened
manner. Hong certainly gave evidence
of catching on to the American cus
Little Ah Saon, on tbe other end,
proved for a while an excellent mate to
Hong, but bis little body did not pos
sess the same amount of animal life as
did Hong's, and be was Boon compelled
to take a back seat to tbat irrepressible.
The little girls were as demure and
cute as conld be, and were dignified
throughout. Little Francis Sing also
hopped about considerably, but as she
1b tbe yonngest of the class, sbe was
A short programme was given by the
class, spoken in English. For tbe short
time in which tbey bave been instruct
ed, considering also their youth, tbey
bave made wonderful progress.
Mrs. Chapin read several essays
written by three of the Sings, Charlie,
Wauaie and Anna, which were good,
Charlie's npon Daniel comparing favor
ably with similar work by American
Anna Maneie and Clara Sing recited
and Charlie Sing sang.
Several songs and hymns were also
given by tbe entire class.
Mrs. Minor made a few remarks and
Mrs. Dimmick told of the growth of tbe
school. A collection was taken up for
tbe benefit of tbe work and netted $25.
The gifts were then handed to the
claas by a number of little American
girls. Many excellent presents were
distributed including a United States
history, dictionary and books to Charlie
Sing, express wagon to Ah Saon, black
board to Yuen Hoy, dolls to tbe girls
and other articles. Candy and popcorn
were also distributed.
Charlie Sing then thanked tbe audi
ence in Chinese for tbe presents, after
which tbe class was taken back to
Chinatown to rest and amuse them
selves with tbe presents.

In the matter of the motion of the
member of the Eighth ward, that the
city attorney present an ordinance
abandoning all ordinances in the mat
ter of the Temple street cut and fill on
the established grade.
We have listened to arguments of
property owners in favor of proceeding
under proceedings, and from others ask
ing to have same abandoned on account
of excessive assessment to carry out
same, therefore we recommend that
commission make up an estimate of tbe
assessment and present to the council,
that they may know about what the
assessment on the different properties
will be, as there seems to be a great di
versity of opinion, before we recommeaU
to tbe council its abandonment.
In tbe matter of grade on Pennsylva
nia avenue, near San Bonita street,
would recommend that the property
owners sign a waiver authorizing the
contractor to change grade at that point
sufficient to carry water towards Cum
mings and St. Louis streets, to do away
with tbe samp at that intersection.

Thomas Vervoort et al., asking council
to take some action in the matter of tbe
