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.

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 tary country. 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. Death of an Infant H. S. Felt, formerly with the Town-send-Wyatt Dry Goods company of St. Joe, as general salesman, arrived in Al liance Tuesday to accept a position in the dry goods department at W. W. Norton's store.

Mr. Felt has had the experience that qualifies him for the position which he holds, and his genial air and pleasing manner will commend him to customers, as well as the other employes of the store.
