FOR THE NEW CLUB Arrangements for the Waverley Concert. An Attractive Program-May Be Dancing The People Club Se cures Another Largre Room. Tomorrow evening the Waverley club gives its initial concert for the benefit of the Library fund. Thanks to the taste and painstaking efforts espe cially of Mr. J. V. Yarndley, Mrs. C. B. Cooper and Miss Clymer, who have rendered most valuable assistance to the committees having the arrange ments in charge, the following pro gram has been prepared, one or two minor details alone remaining to be officially arranged. The concert will begin punctually at S o'clock. PART I. Overture 'Rosamundi" Schubert The Berger Orchestra. Quartetre of male voices Piano 'Cachfieka caprice" Poff Miss Cordelia Clymer. Voice "Reverie" Halm Mrs. R. F. Woodward. Violin "Mazurka" Danbe Mrs. C. B. Cooper. Voice "Mona" S. Adams Mrs. D. Campbell. PART II.

The committees, having the concert in charge are the special committee consisting of Rev. V. H. Kitcat, Mrs. C. B. Cooper, Prof. J. Lightfoot, H. L. Herbert and A. St. M. Mackintosh. The club standing committee on hall and entertainments of W. Horace Wright, J. WT. Yarndley, J. A. Mefor tens, Dr. J. T. Wayson and W. L. Grieve. A. St. M. 'Mackintosh will be in command of the corps of gentlemen ushers and J. A. iMehrtens will have control, assisted by Mr. Lightfoot, of the corps of decorators, for it is 'the intention of the club to show off the beauties of the handsome and commo dious hall to .perfection. There is am ple accommodation for 500 comfortable chairs, and arrangements have been made to reserve seats together for family g;roups or parties by notification to A. St. - M. 'Mackintosh. Horace Wright or any officer of the club. The officers oh duty at. the door will be, money takers, Treasurer Charles Lund and Sergeant-at-Arms Walter Brash; ticket takers, Vice-President Geo. L. Edwards and Librarian Horace Wright. President Gear and Secre taries J. T. Copeland and A. B. Scrim geour will receive the guests. The object of the concert, in addition to making the friends of the club fami liar with the location, objects and cap abilities, is to inaugurate the library fund, to which Mr. Alexander Young has promised to donate ?250 whenever $1,750 additional has been collected or promised. The club will shortly take over the corner room, now occupied by Messrs'. Ordway & Porter, to be used for a library, chess and meeting room so as to leave the present room for the use of billiards, pool, cards and enter tainments. In addition to many enquiries, it is learned that the club will have no ob jection to a dance at the conclusion oi the program, which is timed to close a few minutes before 10 o'clock, if the guests can prevail upon Capt. Berger to provide them with the music. The floor is an excellent one and the chairs could be removed in a very few minutes. The managing committee of the club at their meeting on Saturday evening expressed their high appreciation of the kindly courtesy cf Mr. Walter C. Weedon, the president-elect of the Y. M. C. A., in causing the postponement of the Y. M. C. -A. meeting and enter tainment until Tuesday week in order to prevent the possibility of semblance of a conflict between the two associa tions, which are both endeavoring to obtain beneficial results in the com munity. The Waverley club men will undoubtedly wait patiently to avail themselves of an opportunity to return the courtesy of the association tenfold. The club is ever ready 'to welcome visitors from the hotels or ships in port. The routine is simple; an intro duction by a member which is avail able for five weeks, the member intro ducing paying $1 for his visitor. Reported Find of Treasure. The Japanese have it that one of their race digging lately on or near the Halstead premises in Makiki found a can or cans containg $300 in money. The Japanese servant of a business man told his employer the -story and in quired: "Haole paper no speak?" No information of the affair is available outside Japanese circles. The matter will be looked into by the police as it is supposed, if the money really has been found, that someone is $300 loser. PERSONAL MENTION. G. B. Davis, a sightseer, recentlj- a visitor to the islands, was heard to remark that in all his travels he had never been groomed in as satisfactory a manner as at the Criterion Barber Shop.

Neiman, chief engineer of the S. S. Australia, is very well konwn here, being a member in good standing of the Third House, the Alpine Club and several other organizations. Mr. Neiman does not take kindly to Klon diking. Writing under date of March 20 to a friend here, Mr. Neiman says: We are about 100 miles north of Cape Flattery on the way to Seattle on our second voyage. Expect to reach Seattle about noon tomorrow (.Sunday, 27:h. I sincerely wish it was the last trip. "On the first voyage we had 4CS pas sengers and a full cargo. There were also aboard horses, mules, cattle and dogs galore. The dogs were the worst nuisance on board. They are barking and howling much all the time, night and day, and give you no peace at all. Lawless (First Officer) says that by the time he gets out of this business he will be a fit candidate for an asylum. We are all much disgusted with this business of carrying so many animals and we have a great number on board each trip. "From Cape Flattery on this run we have the 'Open sea for it a distance of 022 miles. Then reaching Cape Om many, which is about 55 miles south of Sitka, we enter Chatham straits. From the Straits 10 Juneau, our next calling place, is 143 miles. From Jeneau to Skaguay, 100 miles even, we made the run in six hours and twenty-two minutes. "The scenery in these inland waters as simply grand. It was especially beautiful in appearance during the bright and clear moonlight of our first run. On either side tare imjouatain ranges 4000 to 5000 feet in height. Here and there' in a valley is a great glacier, and now and then we see an iceberg that would made a decidedly unpleasant mark on a dark night. Everything is snow and ice up here. When you stop to think iof the dangers of the rocky passages and what might happen en a dark night in a snow storm some of the romance is taken out of the situation and there a few cold shivers. How is everything and everybody in dear old Honolulu? I shall more than plea-sed when this ship gets pointed for that port again. "At Skaguay I was talking to an army officer who had been over both trails. He told me that Chilkoot pass was practically blockaded. According to his statement there are between C000 and 10,000 tons of freight between Dyea and Sheep Camp and twice as many people. At some places goods that were cashed during good weather are now under twenty feet of snow. This officer said that the White Pass was in a much better condition. It has a fairly good wagon road. The day we left Skaguay a pack train came in from Bennett on the White trail, making thirty-six miles in twelve hours. "Give my best Aloha to all friends in Honolulu."

Our leathers are all choice Seal, Morroco, Calf, Hog-Skin, Monkey, Lizard, Rattle Snake, Kangroo, and other choice skins. The mountings and shape leave nothing to be desired, and so differ ent from anything else in the city, that you are assured of a choice and exculsive pattern beside the lasting quality of the leather itself. We also have a good selection of silver and silver gilt chain purses, to be carried with a chain round the neck. Very stylish for stylish people.
