Last Friday night was the time set
for the annual celebration of Alliance
Aerie No. 136, Fraternal Order of
Eagles? and a large number of the
members and friends of the order re
sponded to invitations to attend. The
ball and accompanying program were
given in the Phelan opera house, and
the banquet at the Cafe Alliance.
There was a large attendance, and the
universal verdict of members and
guests, so far as we can learn, was
that nothing had been neglected by en
tertainment committees in their efforts
to make the occasion enjoyable.
Cafe Alliance did itself proud
spreading a feast fit for a king and
retinue. Chef McCartney and
corps of assistants heve already
quired a reputation for the quality
excellence of their cooking, but on
occasion they surpassed their own pre
vious efforts. There were about 165
guests at supper.

Gov. Shallenberger has recognized a
leading business firm of this city by
appointing John W, Guthrie, of the
firm of Gray & Guthrie, deputy fire
commissioner. This appointment au
thorizes him to enter buildings for in
spection, order dangerous buildings re
paired, and rubbish that might cause a
fire to be removed. His authority is
not confined to Alliance, and as. he is
the only deputy fire commissioner in
this part of the state it makes the office
all the more important.
A Sad Man from Powder River.
Last week we had intended to call
attention to the quarterly statement of
the Alliance National bank, asking a
comparison with previous statements
and showing the growth of the busi
ness of that financial institution. The
report compared with the correspond
ing report for last year shows an in
crease of approximately twenty-five
per cent. This is certainly a splendid
showing, especially in view of the fact
there has beeu no "boom" here, but
just simply a solid, steady growth of
the city and development of the tribu
The advertisement of the First Na
tional bank, appearing in The Herald,
shows it to be a tower of strength, also,
and that it is doing an immense busi
ness. We have not looked up the fig
ures to make a comparison of business,
but understand there has been a con
siderable increase within the last year.
