Robbie Burns anniversary
The 161st anniversary of the birth of Robert Burns was celebrated last night at the instance of the Dunedin Burns Club, by a concert in His Majesty's Theatre. There was a very large audience, not exclusively Scotch, but it was made apparent very soon that the great majority were of that nationality. The President of the Burns Club, Mr Alex McLeod, who presided, briefly opened the proceedings by remarking that the memory of Robert Burns was implanted in the hearts of the people for over a century. His voice had rung through their nation and it was ringing even more loudly and clearly today than when first it was heard. His memory was fixed amongst the stars of immortality.
A moonlight excursion down the harbour last night proved as popular as the first trip. The Waikana carried a large and merry crowd of passengers, and the presence of the St Kilda Band was a guarantee that the musical part of the evening was in good hands. On another deck a banjo quartet played the latest songs about Hawaii. The excursion, which was to the Heads and back, was in aid of charity.
