Chancellor Wm. J. Davidson preach
ed at the Methodist church last Sun
day morning to an interested audience.
This brought him an immense crowd
at the opera house Sunday evening.
Every seat in the opera lionse was
filled and some were turned away.
Chancellor Davidson is an eloquent
speaker and his speech was interrupted
time and time again by bursts of ap
plause. The large chorus, which was
seated on the stage, is said to have
been the largest ever seen in Alliance,
consisting of nearly one hundred per
sons. I. E. Tash introduced Chancel
lor Davidson with a few well timed re
marks. The High School orchestra
furnished the music. The "drys"
seem much encouraged by the good
showing made at this nitrting.

sang three appropriate hymns. There
were many noral tributes from friends
and from societies, to which Mrs.
