The Evening Star. THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 18, 1897
The Albert Lucas Company repeated ' The Octoroon' last night at the City Hall.
The ' Manawatu Standard ' learns that the Rev. J. Muirhead has received a call from the Baptist Church at North-east Valley, and that there is a probability of his accepting the invitation. A large number of persons pationised the Art Society's exhibition in the Choral Hall last night. Mr Edward Cunningham and Mr De Latour played several enjoyable musical selections during the evening. The St. Kilda Borough Council met on Tuesday, when the Finance Committee repcrted that the overdraft stood at £BO9 16a 4d. They recommended that defaulters in the payment of rates be proceeded against—that a ballot be taken of the defaulters and that twelve be sued. The report was adopted.
_ The annual meeting of the Baptist Missionary Society was held last night at Wellington. The report showed a balance in hand of £96. The Committee were authorised to obtain a new mission boat at a cost of not more than £2OO, and a special appeal is to be made to Sunday schools to raise this fund. Mr Driver was re elected secretary and Mr Martin treasurer.
Mr Peter Barr, secretary to the Dunedin City Sinking Fund Commissioners, reports that tenders were cpened yesterday for fifteen New Zealand Government 4 per cent, immigration and public works loan debentures of £IOO each, payable in 1913. Four tenders were received for the full amount ranging from £IOO Is 6d to £lO4, and one for £3OO at £lO5 Is. The tender at £lO5 Is was accepted, and the balance (£1,200) allotted to the tenderer at £lO4. A remark made by Coroner Ashcroft concerning the Wellington tragedy was somehow perverted by the time it reached us. What the coroner said was that there could be no doubt that murder had been committed. Ho referred particularly to the fact that the only piece of evidence that accused had to show that he came by Hawthorne's effects honestly was a receipt, which he afterwards admitted he himself had made out.
