COLLECTIONS PROMPTLY AC COUNTED FOB- SEVEN E ft Ifl IIIOII SCHOOL COMMENCEMENT EXERCISES. Essays on Burning Questions of the Day Address by Attorney General W. O. Smith. The assembly room of the High school was the scene lust evening ot u most interesting and enjoyable com mencement program. It is unusual to have graduating exercises at this season, but Professor Scott, who be lieves in thoroughness, thought it best last Summer to keep his senior class at work a few weeks longer. Thus the commencement at Christ mas came about. There were seven pupils In the grad uating class us follows: Miss Ivy tilrv in, Miss May Rice, Miss Ada Gertx, William R. Chilton, Robert King, Geo. Wright nnd Antonio Mareelllno. These occupied chairs on one side of the ros trum. On the other side sat Profes sor Scott, Rev. Alex, Mackintosh, At torney General W. O. Smith and In spector of Schools 11. S. Townsend, The house was well filled. During the evening the school sang three ballads, entitled: Early Spring, Happy and bight and The Volunteers. Miss Ada (lertz officiated as piano nc companlst in a most pleasing iiiiiiiner. This young lndy has played for the school exercises each morning during the past three years. Professor Yarndley was additional accompanist with the violin. The first essay read was by Miss Ivy Girvln on The Philippine Islands. This paper began with a historical resume nnd led up to the incidents of the past seven months. Then came a reference to the expansion policy, its necessity and its dangers. Jt is little to say that the paper evinced clear, deep thought and the reading of it was excellent. There were music specialties during the evening. One was an instrumen tal selection entitled The Chilieoot March, by Messrs. Elston, Marques and Kaai. The other was the singing of Professor Klston. Jle otVeri-d a ten or solo Past and Future, and respond ed to u hearty encore with another ballad. The Nicaragua Canal was the sub ject, of an essay by George V. Wright. This paper was purely descriptive, treating the topography of the coun try, route of the canal through seven teen miles of high land from Balboa's ocean to bake Xiearngiia. and down the San Juan river to Greytown on the Gulf, the length, width and depth of the big ditch as proposed, and, II null v. the advantage the canal would be to the commerce of the Pacific and to the Hawaiian Islands. Miss Mary K. Rice's essay, consider ed one of the best presented, treated of The Indigenous Flowers of Hawaii. It was listened to with keen interest. The subject is a home one, yet few could be more difficult." The' prppnr- uion 01 such a paper means a pro tracted research in botany few care t ) uttempt. It was shown by Miss Rice that tfie mountains and valleys abound In floral gems indigenous to Hawaii nei. Names of dozens were irben and they were described. '1 lie last essay read was by Robert 1). King on The Constitution of Ha waii. This began with the Kaniehanie has and concluded with the promulga tion of the present constitution in July, 18SM. It was purely u historical treatise, but showed study and a pa tient collection of historical data. Minister Cooper was unavoidably de tained and Attorney General Smith consented to address the class. He spoke, extemporaneously for ten min utes. His principal thought was that the power of a man depended upon the response awakened in the other person, and that in everything some central truth should bo gleaned, re membered and profited by. Professor M. M. Scott addressed the class directly on the subject of habits business, moral, etc. ile talked for perhaps ten minutes and then distri buted the diplomas. A kindly word was said to each member of the class as the scrolls were passed over. Rev. Alex. Mackintosh offered pray er at the beginning of the evenlngs program and u benediction at the close. ORPHEL'.M THEATER. The Orpheuin had another heavy last evening and put on a really fine show. The new program was repeat ed. Tomorrow afternoon there will be a matinee entertainment for children and at evening a great Christmas pro grain will be put on. YOUR BEST INTERESTS Will be served by making sure of health.

A new line just to hand. new fIIshings. Ieo.-tlix' Rolls: Professor Lyons reports Hint the thermometer went ns low as f7 above during last night, nnd would have gone lower still had It not been for clouds and wind from the northwest In the afternoon. He says thnt the snap is a cold wave, acting in the same manner as such things In the states. In town the temperature was about the same, but along the shore it was oil of n degree colder. In open bed rooms the thermometer ranged from (10 to 02 just before day, creating n de mand for extra blankets. DETECTI VE DISCOVERED. Effort to Get Evidence nt Wainhin That Failed. A funny thing happened in connec tion with the investigation into the recent murder of a Japanese woman at Walalun. A raw Jap was sent down to play detective nnd learn something. He wns to go into the fields and hear the laborers talk. The game was coy, however. See ing the stranger the Japs wanted to know his business nnd cornered him. He became afraid of his life and eon fessed all to his prey. The laborers Init no time in hustling him out of sight and the "detective" lost no time in escaping. It is said the fault lay in not sending, a more experienced hand.
