Those who attended the concert given by the Canadian Jubilee Singers and the Imperial Orchestra at the “Little Pine” fair in city hall last evening enjoyed every minute of the splendid program.

Each number on the program was enthusiastically received and it seemed as if the audience could not be satisfied.

Gerard Millar’s strong bass voice completely filled the hall and every one of his numbers were encored again and again. The same may be said of the other soloists. All in all the program cannot be spoken of too highly.
