here state they know nothing offi

is fear of a renewal of the anti-German

At Loudon no particular excite
ment has been occasioned by the

that Germany is too aggressive, and
it is feared that the bombardment
will delay the settlement of 'the

Prevalence of the Disease Continues
Dr. Archie Irwin's December re
port to the Board of Health as
government physician for the dis
trict of North Hilo again calls at
tention to the prevalence of typhoid
fever, and expresses the opinion
that it is being brought into the
district by new arrivals. There
were twenty cases during the
month. The report says:
"We have had a large number
of cases of typhoid at Honolima a
mougst some new Japanese. I am
inclined to believe the patients were
infected betore they arrived here,
as some of them never worked a
day on this plantation after arriving.
We have had three deaths altogeth
er and the rest are convalescent.
"I would ask the Board to have
printed in Japanese a few pam
phlets describing in simple language
the nature and causejofentericfever,
the necessity for carefulness in the
use of drinki -g water, the value of
personal cleanliness in the care of
a lever patient, the danger of con
tagion, the value of seeing a physi
cian earjy in any fever and ' in fact
a good general history of the trouble
and how to take care of it."
In the district of Kau Dr. L. S.
Sampson reports 4 cases of typhoid,
while the rest of the districts have
little to report. Dr. K. J. McGet
tigau of liana declares that con
sumption is increasing in his dis
trict and in Kapaa Dr. Weddick
says that a case of diptheria was re
ported to him by a Japanese physi
cian. He is doubtful, however,
about the diagnosis.
Dr Atchcrly of South Kohala re

Dole and says that there appears to
be a chance of gettinp a good water

el's hall. The decorations were
most elaborate. The walls were
transformed into a filigree of green
and white with great rows of palm
branches. Bamboo reeds festooned
the corners and streamers of green,
vari-colorcd in which candescent
lights wereenmeshed, wercstretched
along the ceiling. A stage had been
erected at the head of the hall.
This was made? into a green bower,
with green branches and ferns.
Back of the stage was a pencil por
trait of Robert Burns.
The audience filled the hall. It
was as select as has been seen in
Hilo. From other cities there were
present, Judge Robinson, F. M.
Swanzy, Cecil Brown, Geo. A.
Davis, Mr. & Mrs. Captain Nuller,
The program was entirely a home
talent matter, but nothing been has
been produced in Hilo equal to it.
The success of the Anniversary is
due in large measure to the genius
of W. C. Cook who carries the palm
as a master of ceremonies.
The opening piece was a piano
solo by Mrs. Jarrett T. Lewis. She
put the audience in the proper
frame of mind by running through
a number of Scottish "Reminis-censes."
The soprano solo by Mrs. Piul
Bartels consisted of two Scotch
ballads, "There was a lad was born
inKyle" and "Flow gently, sweet
Afton." Mrs. Bartels' singing was
greeted with the most generous ap
plause. Mrs. A. G. Curtis of Olaa capti
vated the audience with a recita
tion entitled, "Last May a Braw
Woo-'er Cam' Doon, the Lang
Glen." She was given a hearty
encore to which she responded with
a humorous selection.
A contralto solo, "O, a' the airts
the Wind can blaw," delightfully
rendered by Mrs. W. I. Madeira
was one of the most pleasing num
bers of the evening.
Miss M. G. Farquhar rendered
"Scottish Melodies" on the violin
and was loudly encored, to which
she gracefully responded.
One of the most interesting fea
tures of the entertainment was the
exhibition dance By Mr. Kenneth
Cameron. Attired in the literal
costume of the Highlanders, Mr.
Cameron did the "Highland Fling"
most artistically. The performance
called out the loudest applause and
the audience was not satisfied until
the dancer appeared a second time.
The oration of the evening was
delivered by the Hon. Gilbert F.
Little. He spoke on "Burns and
His Poetic Genius." The oration
was a brilliant characterization of
the great Scotch poet and evoked
the approbation and applause of the
The soprano solo, "Comiu1
thro' the Rye," rendered by Mrs.
Homer Ross was the musical gem
of the evening. In response to a
hearty encore, Mrs. Ross sang

blooms," was the little of a ballad
