Hakatere Club Concert.

The weather last evening was decidedly unfavourable to holding the Htkatere Young Men's first public concert, and the oommittde was divided in opinion as to whether it would not be advisable under the adverse weather conditions to postpone . the function. At 8 o'clock, however, some seventy to eighty of an audience had assembled, and it was decided to proceed with the programme and to repeat it at some future date, when Jupiter-Plavius and his satellite, Captain Edwin, are more amiably disposed. The programme was opened by an overture played in good style by Miss Richardson, which was followed by a number of choruses, contributed by a minstrel troupe, who at intervals distinguished themselves in no degree by funny isms, several of which were locally manufactured and applied. Songs during the evening were rendered by Messrs §„ J. and P. Healy, Jas. Brown, and J. Kersal, the performers receiving well merited applause. Messrs F. Butler and D. Moriarty each contributed recitations; Mr A. Stock a whistling solo; Mr L. S. McClnrg, violin solo; Mr T. McDonald, an exhibition of club swinging; Mr F. Butler, step dance j Clubjmembers, physical culture exercises. Taken as a whole the programme was a commendable one, and the various items found favour with those assembled. The concert conoluded with a mirthmaking farce, " Nervous Jim," the characters being sustained by Messrs Healy Bros. (3), and J. Brown. Misses Richardson, Heseltine, and Mrs McClurg played the accompaniments in a pleasing style, while the duties of stage manager were efficiently discharged by Mr M. J. Burgess. It is the intention of the Club to give performances at Stavely, Methven, and other country places during the winter months. In a few well-chosen remarks Mr D. Moriarty returned thanks to the audience for their patronage, and regretted the adverse weather conditions.
