The revue, which is the work of Mr C. J. McCormack, Holyhead, and is divided into tnree tiom;-The Past, The Present and The F t. t Li rf- redolent with patriotic ditties, .and the soloists (their names did not appear on the pro- gramme) did ample justice to the mimic, except the syncopated variety, which is hardly suitable for children. One of the best items was the singing of "We mjwt ail fall in if we want to win." The boy to whom it was allotted sang with the right expression and clear enullciation. Another feature of the musical side was the duett "Battle Eve," rendered by a party of six s'irla with excellent voices. A very diminutive artiste, Dilys Hughes made a hit with two or three sortg!31 itieltidirig "Yott are my baby." Mention should -also be made of the dancing of the principal girl in the Scotch group. The concerted ainguig was also commendable, and the orchestra did useful serviee. There was a crowded and very appreciative audience. VOLUNTEER REGIMENT: BANGOR I BATTALION.

Even standing room was at a premium at the fortnughtly gathering of the Brotherhood on Sunday evening, at Iloreb Chapoi, the audience including several soldiers. Tho chairman was Mr 11. F. Perkins, and ho ad- drescsed a few worcw of soumd advioe to the younger members of the audience. To the programme the orchestra contribu- ted a march in addition to accompanying the throo hymns sung. Miss Bowen, Normal Col- lege, rendered "J-Jfe's LuUaby," and a song founded on Handel's "Largo; Mr Gritt Owen sang Handed a "How vain is Man" quite effectively, despite the many technical diffi- culties of the air; Corporal Gow, 1t.A.M.e., recited a selection from Longfellow, being ac- companied on the piano by Miss M. P. Jon.c-3. Corporal Gow deepened the re-ptutation he had already made, ancl in response to an encore he gave The Dandy Fifth. MieM Eardley was the accompanist. In the course of a sdiort address on "Some of the phases of the war," the Rev. Father J. E. Quinn said there were two kinda of peace, one was a lastin.g peace, and the other a fix,1&3 peace which we must avoid. Some peoplo wanted peaoe because their oomforte were cur- tailed and their pockets wcte being tapped. The only people who would benefit by a hasty, inconclusive peaoe at the present juncture would be the Germans, who would have breathing time to profit by their mistakes and re-attaol- us. vVhat we wanted was a lasting peace which could only be secured by a declsi ve victory over the Germans. Re- ferring to the Zeppelin raids, Father Quinn declared, that that was not war; it was siniply murder, and in the sight of God was inex- cusable. He admitted that he did not liko Compulion-(hoor, hear)—because it told him that there were many young invn who wero not doing their duty (cheers). It should never have been necessary to bring in such a Bill. He did not want to hear anything about the conscicntious objector 1vceau.se we have never fought a more righteous war. If a maai did not want to light he should write hnhlf not want to fig down ad a coward. Fortunately Bangor had responded well to the call, and he had it on good authority there were not 50 eligible voung men in the city who had not attested. There were some peeainrists, but the morale of the men at the front wa, splendid, and only that morning he received a letbar from the front in which the writer said, "We are in a hot shop, but we have already whacked the beggars" (cheers). Let all look forward to tji-e dav, not far distant, when the sword shall be sfieathied, the gun silenced, and when our boys would return home ooverc-d with glory (cheers).
