The minstrel show followed by a dance given in the Armory August 17'h and 18tn, was an unqualified social and finan cial success It was under the auspices of Co. F. of the Third Maine with Frank O’Leary of Bangor, master of ceremonies and Mrs. M. O. Dickey, musical director. Towle’s orchestra of Bangor furnished music for the show and dance. When the curtain went up there was an expression of approval from the large audience present as the scenic effect was fine. The entire performance was a credit to the management and to all tak ing part, even to the little children in the choruses. From the opening chorus of popular songs by the company to the last note on the program there was a dash and harmony that held attention and pleased. The costumes were attractive, princi pally Spanish and Egyptian, for the adults and for the little girls in the cho ruses Japanese and fancy designs. The stage setting and lighting effects were excellent. The end men were a whole show in themselves, Bert L. Davis, Melvin O. Dickey, Hillard Buzzell, Thomas Ken nedy, Hugh B. Young and John Casey. The jokes had points sharp enough to be appreciated and Davis was exceptionally good in his dialect. John Casey was greeted with applause as he finished his solo, “When the Preacher Makes Y ou Mine*” and his solo dance was very w 11 done. Miss Virginia, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Fred M. Dutch, was modest and charming as she sang in good expression i and voice “Just One More Rose.” Hillard Buzzell, the sixteen year old 1 son of Mr. and Mrs. H. C. Buzzell, a B. H. S. boy, w'as one of the new stars to appear. He substituted for Earl Ham mons, who was ill. Hillard has a fine voice for solo work and his dance was called and recalled until the boy was breathless. Howard W. Hatch, son of Mr. and Mrs. W. G. Hatch, made his first public ap pearance in one of the best things on the program, “That Old Irish Mother of Mine.” He has a remarkably fine voice and his enunciation was of the best. Hugh B. Young sang “Deacon Jones” in his usual pleasing manner and received an encore. Mrs. Basil R. Allen, always a charming personality in any part she is cast, made i a pretty Spanish girl and sang most de lightfully the bright and catchy solo, “Peggy.” Melvin O. Dickey, a veritable old Darky, was repeatedly recalled in his solo, “He Went in Like a Lion and Came Out Like a Lamb.” He always sings with ease and good expression. Harold S McKeen in Spanish costume was again heard in one of the best features “My Baby’s Arms.” He is a general iavorite in music circles. Mr. Davis’ solo, “Oh! Lordy!” brought down the house and was so catchy that several in the audience were humming with the chorus. A minstrel show with out Bert would fall flat with a Belfast audience. Mrs. Melvin O. Dickey always takes her part with grace and sings beautifully. This time her selection, “Dreaming Alone in the Twilight,” suited her voice to per- ; fection and she was recalled repeatedly. Thomas Kennedy added another success to his public appearances and was greeted , with applause in his solo, “A Smart Little Fellow’ Who Stocks Up liis Cellar.” The scene of the second part was a I Broadway restaurant and the cast was well taken as follows: The High Fly, Mr. Kennedy Fly Low, Mr. Casey Rufus Johnson, lather of the boys, Mr. Davis Rastus Browm a waiter, Mr. Young Madge, a friend of the boys, Mrs. Allen Temperance Lecturer, me, myself, Mr. O’Leary Misses Katherine K. Brier, one of Bel fast’s most popul.tr soloists, and little j Miss Mildred ileald, a B. H. S. pupil, were received with flattering applause and w'orth while compliments. Mrs. Hugh Young was also applauded in the following program: So-Long, OO-Long, Mildred Hcald and Japanese Maid Allthe Samee, Chinese Maids Little Blue Diamonds, Mr. McKeen The Oid Fashioned Garden, Mrs. Alien and Old Fashioned Misses When the Moon Shines on the Moonshine, i Mr. O’Leary j i The Venetian Moon, Miss Brier and Butterfly Maids I’d Rather See a Minstrel Show, Mr. Davis 1 ain’ten got’en no time to have the blues, Mrs. Young and Chowder Club Others taking part and not previously mentioned were: Butterfly, Japanese and Chowder Club Members: Minnie Page, Dorothy Thomas, Marion Parsons, Helen Burgess, Agnes Pendleton, Gretchen Fletcher, Eileen Fer nald, Mary Smalley, Pauline Stackpole, Theora Gross, Mabel Philbrick. Chorus Members: Mildred Thomas, Doris Allen, Mrs. H. S. McKeen, Mil dred Wardwell, Elizabeth Doak, Doris Clifford, Mona Burgess, Iona Judkins, Pauline Stackpole, O. Stevens, R. Sand ers, H. Greenlaw, F. Downs, T. Lothrop, A. Andrews and Earl Hammons. There were large audiences at both performances, and considering the short period of rehearsals Mr. O’Leary should be pleased with the result of his efforts. NORTH SEARSPORT. Mrs. Anna Nickerson of North Sears port has been entertaining many relatives and friends during the past two weeks as follows: Her son, Chester, who is home from the navy on a th.rty days’ furlough; her stepson, Jesse Nickerson and wife; her daughter, Mrs. Merriam and husband with their two sons of Everett; her neph ew, Mr Maker and wife of Malden; her sister, Mrs. Keene and daughter from Pittsfield, Miss Sarah Harris and Mrs. Laurie A.

The Question of Gas Supply A public hearing on the gas supply for the citycustomers was held in Belfast Au gust 17th with W. L. Wyman of Augusta» treasurer of the Penobscot Bay Electric Company, present. The following letter from Mr. Wyman Jto Mayor Wescott ex plains the matter: C. W. Wescott, AUgUSt ,8’ 1920 Mayor, City of Belfast, Belfast, Maine, Dear Sir: In accordance with our ap pointment, I met you and various other gentlemen representing the citizens of Belfast on the question of gas supply. I read to these gentlemen the operating \ ligures of the Penobscot Bay Electric Co. for the year ending June 30, 1920, which were as follows: Gross income from sales of gas, $4,010.65 Operating expenses, 9,943.67 Net loss for the year, $5,933 02 1 also made a statement regarding the agreement which was reached between your Committee and ourselves last No vember by which we undertook to install a Water Gas Plant in Belfast as soon as it could be done and the Committee j agreed on the part of the citizens to an increased gas rate of $1.00 per month per customer on January 1, 1920. I stated that the putting in of this Plant had been delayed and finally rendered im practical by the very sharp advance in the price of gas oil and the withdrawal of gas oil from the market by the principal oil producing companies, such as the Standard Oil Co., the Gulf Refining Co. and the Texas Co. Our Company has contracts for gas cil expiring this year with both the Standard Oil Co. and the Gull Refining Co. and we have been no tified by both of them that these con tracts would not be renewed at any price ! when they run out, and that these com- j panies would not furnish us any gas oil. ] We had the same answer from the Texas Co. when we applied to them for oil. There is more or less spot oil on the mar ket which can be picked up at anywhere from 10 to 20 cents per gallon but the supply is very uncertain. After considerable discussion the fol lowing suggestions were made: 1. That the Penobscot Bay Electric Co. discontinue its charge of $1.00 per customer per month, beginning Sept. 1st, 1920. 2. That it at once make a canvass of the gas customers which it had on August 1, 1920, listing up carefully every piece of gas using apparatus owned and used at that time by its customers; that in the case of the domestic appliances the Com pany exchange an electric appliance pf similar character and equivalent from point of view of service to the gas appli ance owned by the customer, and properly install the electric appliance on the gas customer’s premises without charge; that the Company then make an effort to come io an uyiccuiciu vviui uie uiiiciciiL uscis of commercial appliances regarding the discontinuance of their gas apparatus; that in the case of such commercial users as the company is not able to come to an agreement with, the Gas Committee con sider these cases with a representative of the Company and endeavor to work out a fair and reasonable settlement of each individual case; that in the case of corn-, mercial appliances which could not be supplanted by electricity and which the customer could uot reasonably use with out a supply of commercial gas, the Com pany take these appliances olT the cus tomer’s hands at the original cost of them. 3. That the Company would plan to discontinue its supply of gas on the lirst day of November, provided that it is able to reasonably satisfy the requirements of the customers who are to use electricity by that time. It being understood that in case any great inconvenience is to be caused the commercial users of gas who are not able to replace with electricity on account of not having time to install their other apparatus, the Company will continue to operate its plant for another thirty days; that on the day when the making of gas is discontinued, either No vember 1, or December 1, the Company will return to each one of its gas custom ers the extra SI per month which they have paid to it as an extra gas rate since Jan. 1, 1920.
