KING'S THEATRE.

Fullers' Pictures.- •' ' . King's Theatre pictures are still drawing like unto, one of Minister Myers's locomotives ■. on • the Main Trunk, or like unto a Yankee liiissioner. Star item of instructive interest this week is "The. Seal .Industry of Newfoundland." This excellent film shows how brother seal is captured from his : native rock and sea shore arid converted into lubricating oil and sealskin coats for John .1). Rockefeller and other impoverished parsons. . More industry is attended to by "Borndo, Pottery," which shows the* genial Malay, who used to spend his spare tinve hunting for the. heads of his neighbors, indulging m the more peaceful ,-pastime of turning out bedroom jugs, and other appurtenances of civilisation for the benefit of the '.English tourist. 13ellow<lrama gets a most successful innings with "A Mender of Nets" and "Sergeant White's Peril." Broad comedy g-ets a good look m with "The Tramp and the Bear," "Ono Way to Win," and "Whilst the Cook Slept." Pathe comes to light with the usual interesting Gazette of current events. Burkes orchestra has suitable musical accompaniment for nil the items of a most interesting programmeThe Hon. James Colvin, says a Central Ota^ro exchange, is not m love with his new title. Be has all the old goldficlds pioneer's horror of anything apy>roaching "side." Speakin his "am raiJyard" at West Coast recently he informed his bearers thai- { he was still ".Jimmy" Colvin to them, and "Uncle" to his Parliamentary cronies. One very satisfactory feature of political life m New Zealand is that, as a rule, our politicians do not sulTer from "swelled heads," arid it is also an evidence of the fact that they are there for oarnest work and not for show. This last sentence is also the 'Hago | paper's expression of opinion. "Truth" does not incline to thaiopinion ; all tho same, no one can accuse "Uncle" Colvin of "suffering ! from "swelled head." After the simple, . yet eloquent address of ■Mr llavclock Wilson, at Auckland on the Titanic disaster, there were two outstanding features. Ono was the beautiful singing by Miss Olive Sisson of the now famous hynrn, "Nearer- My God to Thee." This young lady has a beautiful mellow contralto voice,, and her rendering of the- hymn touched tho hardened old "shell-backs" and firemen right to the core. For the last two A'erses the entire huge audience stood up and sang to the lead of Miss Sisson. The other fcatui-3 was tho eloquent pleading of Lawyer Singer that, the amlioncn shou'U give m the- : 'und for the widow and the orphan to I heir utmost.
