Despite the long and somewhat enforced stay of the Hoganites,
Honolulu audiences in no wise seem to tiie of seeing them. Vatiety
is the spice of theatiieal life and the continued success of Hogan
and his funny folk is due in no small measuie to the versatility
nnd untiring stage diiection of the eccentric Ernest. It takes a
good deal of haul woik to tuin out an entirely new piogram full of
fresh stage business, choiuses and songs eveiy few days and the
" coons " ceiUinly get it. Hogan lehearses them morning, noon,
afternoon and after the peifoimance, the work being doubly hard on
him. In the beginning of the week the stage setting was worthy
of particulai mention, being, while nothing wondei fully elaborate, a
creditable attempt at novelty. The scene while perhaps not nau
tically practical was effectively ananged and the costumes at all
events weie genuine and " the real thing," as in the Ust military
act. Thursday saw the piogram augmented and strengthened by
the airival of "Baby Ruth" (Roland) and Dudson. Both of
these new anivals aie undoubtedatUgctions. " Baby Ruth," a tiny
little atom of femininity, has w'ontilL hearts with her songs and
dances. In " I'll leave myihappyjftome for you she has out
Hoganed Hogan himself, whqaaccts his defeat grar-efully and
falls back or. a topical sonbnsthrjff with local allusions, to which
he contiibuted the music andAlljfer Dunn the words. Dodson the
divine is a maivelous mimic of UfiT fair sex invoice, walk, gesture
and make up. He sings wetland Ins turn is distinctly fiee fiom
theslightest suspicion ofioyejistepping the line, so often trespassed
on bv female impel sonafoVs.' Hogan is as funny as ever and his
comoanv keM well up to the maik. Stanley, by-thevWay, deserves

ments at the last moment, Mr. Hall, though unaccustomed to the
pioduction of the bioad effects tequiied in so large a house quite
justified his innk as anoet of high older, which has been accorded
him by some of the leading ciitics of England and America.

The years 1819-1900 are the dates that embrace the age of Odd
Fellowship. Though the junior of Masonry by many years it has
risen in influence and wealth to almost as high a plane as its
ancient colleague The Odd Fellows of this city got up an elabor
ate concert and ball last Thursday evening in Progress Hall to
mark the eighty-first annivetsary of the establishment of their
order. If was an occasion that will live long as a pleasant memory
in the consciousness of those who had the good fortune to attend
the function. From " La Viastesa" of the orchestra to the grand
Virginia leel it was a whole evening of enjoyment. There were
neatly 200 couples on the spacious floor. The musical selections
were tendered by some of the best home artists and were fully up
to Honolulu's best quality. The anniversary proclamation by Mr.
W. C. Parke was full of interest to the Odd Fellows and to their
friends as well. Mr. Allan Dunn gave a recitation that was well
received. Following is the personnel of the management of the

As fa i as the musical section of the conceit went theie was the
best of satisfaction expiessed by the audience. Captain Beiger
and his band appealed for the fust time under the teorganixation
and gave a whole conceit by themselves. What affoided the most
pleasuie and leceived loud acclaims of piaise was the olfeiing of the
mixed qua teite, "The Sea Hath Its Peat Is," in which the voices
of Mis. ilowaul and Miss Giiswold and Messis. Elston and Law
