Notable Event Is Solemnly Observed
at All the Churches.
Easter Sunday was beautifully observed
in Alliance at all the churches, and the day
on which the crowning event of man's re
demption took place was observed in a
true Christian manner. At the Catholic
church a well-trained choir sang the re
sponses at high mass and other sacred
music that stirred the souls of the large
gathering, which included people, not only
of that faith, but of other denominations.
Father Galvin seemed at his best when it
came to the sermon, for his words of in
spiration were listened to with intense in
terest. At the M. E. church the services were
also of unusual interest, as was the case at
the Episcopalian, Presbyterian, Lutheran,
Babtist and otherchurches. Easter morn
ing brought ideal spring weather and the
gentler sex adorned in the new finery of
the season was out in force, and say it to
their credit, were at morning services in a
body. But just as the religious exercises
were concluded and the throng were on
their way home proudly showing the latest
fashions in dress and bonnet, a change
came over the serene weather. The cloud i
gathered thick and fast and a copious rain
driven by a strong north wind derenched
the beatifully attired feminine sex who were
not prepared for such a change in the pro
Whether it was a suggestion of the good
Providence to remind poor humanity of
the frivolous vanity of the material world,
or the action of the weather,man, we have
not been advised. At any rate, either
vould have been as destructive1 to the fin
ery of the Easter decorations.
The Tire at Mitchell.
In speaking of the fire at Mitchell, which
occurred Wednesday of last week, the
Index says: "It is a hard blow to the vil
lage of Mitchell and gives our little town a
peculiar "sawed ofl" appearance that is sad
to behold. But it is a harder blow to the
Blackburn Brothers whose loss above in
surance is several thousand dollars. The
building belonged to W. W. Norton and
the main part of it was one of the first
structures in Mitchell, having been built by
Mr. Norton who opened the pioneer store
of Mitchell in January or February 1901.
The additions were built for the accom
modation of Dr. Romine's growing stock in
the summer of 1902. The night of the fire
the Blackburns had been ordering new dry
goods for next winter from Wm. Glasier,
representing Handley, Smith & Co., St.
Joseph. -His trunks .and samples valued at
$350. were burned. Practically nothing
was saved. W.R.Blackburn, the manager,
estimates the value of the stock at from
S20.ooo.oo. to $22,000.00. The insurance
on merchandise was $12,000.00. The build
ing belonged to W. W. Norton, of Alliance.
It was worth $3,500.00."
Next Sunday (Low Sunday) during the
regular Eucharistic services at the Epis
copal church, at 11 o'clock, there will be a
benediction of the window recently placed
in the church as a memorial of Fay
Champion, a former messenger boy in the
telegraph service here, and nephew of Mr.
and Mrs. Benj. Marvin. Miss Kriddle
baugh will sing the solo. "Beyond the
Gates of Paradise," and Mrs. Cruickshank,
"xbide With Me." The window is from
the Tiffany Art works of New York and is
a reproduction of Hodman's "Christ Child
in ne temple." The public is invited to at
tend, and especially railroad and telegraph
The Phelan home in this city will be the
scene of a double wedding next Tuesday
evening, when Miss Edith Phelan will be
married to Mr. Clyde Barker, and immed
iately following this matrimonial event,
Miss Clare Olive Phelan will give her heart
and hand in marriage to Mr. C. Edward
Marks. The prospective brides are the
daughters of John and Adele Phelan and
the grooms-to-be are among the popular
young men of Alliance. The Herald ex
tends its congratulations to the young folks
and wishes them every blessing in this im
portant step, which means so much to those
who take it

The city election, which took place last
Tuesday, "was on the surface n tame affair,
but underneath the current of, political
strife ran rapid. The vote of the success
ful element especially, shows that an active
campaign was in progress and no effort
spared to win out. From the hour the
polls were opened till the last voteSvas
cast, there was a hustling of voters in all
quarters of the town. Dr. Bowman, the
reform candidate, was a winner from the
start and had a walk-away judging from
the returns. Mayor Bucchsenstein stood
on his official career of the past year aDd
was willing to meet defeat if the people of
the city did not agree with his policy.
Several intimate friends of the strong-minded
mayor suggested that if he would an
nounce a different attitude regarding cer
tain issues he would (Strengthen his chances
for re-election but this he absolutely re
fused to do, saying he was taught to do what
he thought was right even at his mother's
knee and he has pursued that course to the
best of his knowledge ever since, hence he
would not assume a position contrary to
his conscientious convictions, though it
meant victory. We give the returns of the
entire election, which are as follows:

The result in the councilman contest
was as much a surprise as that of the head
of the ticket whereby the regular nominees
met defeat in both wards. Messrs, Barnes
and Smith arc both popu!ar,citizens and it
is quite a compliment for the victors, Messrs
Franklin and Joder, that they won out
against such worthy opposition.
The school district contest was a tame
affair compared to the municipal race.
Both G. W; Clark and D. K. Spacht, the
only candidates in the field, had clear sail
ing and the same was the case with C. C.
Smith who was nominated to fill vacancy.
The vote stood: Clark 413, Spacht 402,
The Revival Wave.
The special evangelistic meetings,
which have been in progress at the
First M. E. church during the last
three weeks, closed April 5.
The pastor, Rev. Chas. V. Ray, was
assisted by Rev. Dr. J. W. Mahood,
preacher, and Rev. J. M. Tihbetts,
gospel singer, both of Sioux City, la.
Dr. Mahood is a very strong persuasive
speaker. He surely is one of our most
talented evangelists. He has a quiet,
winning manner which causes people
to forget about the speaker, as they bo
come eager to drink in the truths pre
sented. Rev. Tibbctts is an excellent
chorus leader; in directing a chorus,
he does so in such a pleasing way that
he has the good will and help of each
Many have said that Alliance has
never had such a deep spiritual revival
as this one. The church has received
a groat uplift from the meetings. It is
hardly possible to know the exact milli
bar of conversions and recouseorations,
hut us far as known theio ware 175.
On the la&t evening when the new con
verts wore asked to speak first, it seemed
that a host was turned loose. Pastors
desuing a safe, trusty, spiritual and
worthy evangelist can find none better
than Dr. Mahood. After a short rest
Drs. Mahood and Tibbctts will begin
a meeting at Trinity M. E. chinch nt
Grand Island, Neb.
The childron of the U. P. church will
give an entertainment at the church next
Friday night. We have not been advised
as to the nature of- the program, but it is
safe to predict that it will be of an interest
ing character and beneficial to the cause to
which it is directed. It is a well known
fact that the innocence of childhood draws
more forcibly toward religion than any
thing else. The writer at onco informed
by an unusually successful minister that
the secret of his success was the study of
child life and its nppliation in drawing
adults to a realization of their duties re
garding religion. The parents of many
children were unconsciously drawn toward
the church through this agency. He said
that where he had an opportunity to mould
the idea of the little one, leach it the beau
tiful lesson of the Christ child and touch
the heart with sweet melody and hymns
the result has been, in many instances, al
most miraculous in leading parents toward
the church who otherwise would be in
different. A GRAND "SUCCESS
