To-dav tho flat; of the big Kussian ship which is lying at the Kilcneaer street wharf was flown ut half-simst the Liroo a Russian ship has over flows her . flay in Otago Harbor. Purely a sigudi- I rant tribute to the memory of tho late | Earl Roberts. \ As come of the entries for the Otago Agricultural and Pastoral Society's Summer Show were to-day travelling by poet, Mr Fulton was unable to furnish a complete list in time for this issue. He knows, however, from the returns already to _ hand, that the prospects in regard to entries are good in respect to numbers and that they are of a representative nature, coming from many districts. Tho general arrangements are well in hand, and the only question about tho show is as to tho we ill her. j Fully 500 persons attended tho Otago : Art Society’s exhibition on Saturday. There ; was a great crowd at the afternoon tea 1 provided by Lady M‘Lean, Mrs Roberts, and Mrs Sim. These afternoon functions have been quite a feature at the gallery. Another is to be given on Wednesday, i The patriotic fund benefits by tho patronage this year, as half the net proceeds arct) be given. | Yesterday at Port Chalmers Presby- : terian Church the Rev. A. Whyte made touching reference to the sudden death, through a motor car accident, of their previous pastor (Rev. E. C. Tennent), who had labored for 12 years in Port Chalmers. At tho close of the service tho congregation stood while the ‘ Dead March, in Saul’ was ©laved upon tho organ. *
A somewhat sensational occurrence at St. Clair yesterday afternoon diverted the attention of the crowd that had gathered on the second beach to listen to the Citizens’ Band. Mr James Dixon, a young man belonging to Cavorsiiam, interested more in tho play of tho heavy surf than in the doings of the band, choso a seat awav out on the steep face of the western cliff. After being there a while ho slipped, and, as tho rocks there a,re nearly perpendicular, he turned two or three somersaults and shot into the water. It was almost a miracle that he fell thus. A foot or two either way and he would have been on to the half-tide rocks, and probably badlv hurt. As it was, he got washed near 'a ledge, and grabbed it, holding on by the tips of his fingers until help reached him. Several young men scrambled out at some risk to hia_ rescue. Mr Norman Levidogot a. grip of himlirot, and after much trouble Dixon was hameo out, luckily none the worse Jor his adventure. At another part of the afternoon a big stone loosened from the face above the rotunda, and all in the way c;.u to jump clear. So in one way an ocher there was enough going on to keep the people awake. The fine new rotunda in the Gardens was used for the first time yesterday afternoon, when the St. Kilda Municipal Band played before a large gathering. The programme given was a varied one, including several well-known patriotic tunes, which were well rendered and much enjoyed. The following arc tin 1 items which were rendered under the baton of -Sergeant Patterson : —‘ Our Ter ritorial ’ (march); selection, ‘Sous of the Sea ’; selection, ‘The Martyrs ’; ‘ Melodies of the Past’; vekta. ‘ Tojours Tranquillo ’ : march, ‘The Adventurer’; .Japanese romance, ‘ Poppies.’ The concluding item was a selection of the national anthems of France, Belgium, and Russia and ‘ God Save tho King.’ Tho bluntly mining explosion was discussed at a. public meeting in the King’s Theatre last evening, addresses being given by Messrs R. Semple- and W. Parry.
A very strongly-worded resolution, which was moved by Mr M. fiilverstone. and seconded by Mr A. M'Carthy, was carried unanimously. It recorded the reprobation of the meeting, after hearing the facts cf tho case, as detailed by Messrs Parry and .temple, of the action of tho Massey Government and party, who were condemned for their encouragement of alleged bogus unionism and for their connivance with the defeat of the mine’s inspection. The Government were further condemned for their alleged “criminal negligence” in 'this matter, wherefore the workers are called upon to vote everywhere against Massey candidates, and to support (wherever possible) bona iido representatives of Labor and solid democracy.
A Gore message states that three local clergymen arranged to address an openair meeting in tho Alain street on Saturday evening on the Temperance question, but the effort was a failure owing to the hostility shown by a small section of tho largo crowd present. The first two speakers were interrupted in a most insulting manner. The speakers took this in good part, despite the fact that eggs were thrown at them. The third clergy man closed the proceedings by leading in the singing of Hie National Anthem. Kitchener's message to hf« soldiers,
‘Fear God and honor the King.' is the title of a song w.itt.-n and composed by Laurie Kennedy. The Kennedy and tin; Dandies Companies are fcatuiing this song, and anyone win- would like to own a copy of it may now do so, as the song has been printed, and is now in tho music chop.-. Air Kennedy’s words arc bold and simple, and they strike the right note ; and as for the music, it airs the heart, and is obviously the product of a musician who thinks of the instiUiiT.nl. as well as the voice.
