MASQUERADE BALL
No. 1 Fire Brigade Scores Success—Magnificent Costumes
The Third Annual Masquerade Ball
under the auspices or Fire Brigade
Nd. 1, has passed into history, and
the Bremen have scored another signal success. The ball on Wednesday night was voted the hest, both
trom a spectators point of view, ns
well as socially, that Revelstoko has
ever seen. Seldom has there been
witnessed such a gala scene as that
portrayed in the elegantly decorated
ball on Wednesday night.
LAVISH MCL'URATIONS.
Several new ideas in decorative nrt
were carried out, the whole being
tastefully lavish and artistic. Bunting and colored streamers, so common in all decorations, were entirely
left out, while evergreens in streamers, garlands and trees formed the
chief beauty of the scene. A gigantic
canopy of cedar garlands covered the
floor, while numerous trophies composed of tire lighting apparatus gave
a business like air to the whole. Con
spicuous in Its lofty height was a
largo aeroplane of the biplane type,
thc big propeller whirling merrily
round, driven by a miniature electric
engine. An arctic scene suspended
over the stage gave a cooling atmosphere to the hall. An enormous electric sign hearing the letters R. F.
B. No. 1, was erected outside the
hall, Hinging its red and white beams
across the darkness of the night.
The galleries were packed with interested spectators until standing room
could hardly be found.
MAGNIFICENT SrECTACLE
Shortly after nine o'clock the
Crand March commenced under the
direction of R. Gordon and J. Guy
Barber, and headed by Chief Abrahamson and members ot his staff, ov
er a hundred couples taking part.
The conglomeration of color waa
seen to advantage in the many in-
tricasies of the fascinating circle,
the general effect being superb. It
is safe to say that such anexhtbition
ol art, taste and decorative skill
and variety in the many new ant
original costumes worn, that mingled
together in an ever changing kaleidoscopic galaxy, has rarely been witnes
sed in Revelstoke. The general feature of the masquerade was the rich
ness and newness both in design and
effect of the fancy dresses, some being magnificent, others novel anl
dainty. A feature this year was tho
number of costumes advertising local business, in which idea there is
almost unlimited scope. To thc onlooker the soene was wildly fascinating, the effect being heightened by
the fact that few of the dancers
could be recognized behind their
masks.
SPIRIT OF CARNIVAL.
Previous to the unmasking, which
is always a signal for endless amuse
ment as the characters become ident-i
fled, voting for the be-t costumes
took place, everyone in the hall having a chance to vote for the number
of their choice. Soldiers mingled
with oriental beauties, coy peasant
(Iris, Greectan mai.ls, flower girls,
mil handsome grande dames, made
eyes at dashing cavaliers, cowboys,
and courtiers, while clowns, fairies,
mythical goddesses, gypsies, Scotchmen and crusader**, suffragettes nnd
statesmen took life as happily together as could be. This was perhaps the realization ol the Socialists
dream, the beginning of the milen-
nium, when people of nil nations,
languages, color, speech and creod
were hobnobbing together on pleasure bent.
HANDSOME! PRIZES AWARDED.
Supper, always a feature of a
lance was given at midnight, nnd
as ho-ts the firemen of No. 1 ncelled
themselves and the large gathering
was regaled with the many good
things for which lhe Revelstoke ladies enn hold their own with all com
ers, namely—dainties of home cuuk-
ing. Supper is immlly a time of
good natural chaff and a merry hnlf
hour was passed over cake and coffee
The City Band provided the music
lip till midnight, while thc Uevelstoke orchestra finished nut the ev-
eninc. Enthusiasm nnd thc spirit
of thc carnival, prevafed the entire
hall, and never before has any ilnncc
Veen so thoroughly enjoyed.
Mayor Hamilton In prcsmting the
prize?, spoke in glowing terms of
the evident 9Ucce3s of the ball, saying thnt the mns'iueraile" are thc
nii->st popular of Revelstoke's social
'..fo.     He complimented     the firemen
* n the success of the undertaking.
The     prizes    which  MP)  handsome

Wc are unfortunately enable to
publish a list of the many costumes
ns few who attended gave their
names or characters, but wc can
safely say that never has such a
splendidly varied array of well
thought out costumes been  presented
All details for the comfort of the
guests were carried out without
hitch, and the hall was voted
most enjoyable function of any
held in this city. Fire Brigade
1 deserve great, credit for the manner in which they handled thcaflair,
andas entertainers and managers, are
to be highly commenile.l. Spocinl
praise must be given to the way in
which the supper was scrv-d, nnd
to the splendid appearance of the
hall in the scheme of decorations,
which, without doubt, wns tlio most
artistic and pleasing of anything
yet. As entertainers the firemen
are only equalled by their efficiency
and ability when it comes down to
hard work; and when engaged in active service fighting fire, or with a
fair partner threading thoir way
through the mazy waltz, the firemen are "all there" and equnlly well
at home.
THE  FIREMEN'S   TOAST.
They are a cold water army who
never break their pledge (?) and who
draw water instead of blood and
thanks instead of tears. May a
man never lie in want of hose
never kick the bucket, and may
ladies never cast cold water on
flames of their affections. May
coat be waterproof, his bones fracture proof, and his spirits over proof!
Revelstoke Is proud of her firemen,
who arc the first to be moved by the
sound of the hells (belles)and last to
be  deaf to their calls.
In passing mention must be made
of a novelty introduced in the form
of the "Aurora Boreatis" dance the
effect being obtained by a powerful
electric are light with colored glasses
the flood being thrown on to the
dancers and lighting up the many
costumes with charming effect. Tbe
apparatus was kindly lent by A.
Johnson of the Edison theatre.

entrnnts prepared today to attempt

machines.

As regards tho Premier's speaking,
it cannot be Haiti to lie poor, as he

speeches absorbingly interesting nnd
compels his audience to listen to them
their emphasis, an.l intelligent explanations arc the principal features
of McBriile's platform speaking, nn.l

Cough Now, I'll Wait
Oalgary, Dec. 9.—The past few'days
have been bad weather for colds.
That Is it has resulted in a good
many people catching cold, and there
was a perfect epidemic of coughs and
colds at the Church of the Redeemer
last night.
"Will all those who have to cough
do so now while I wait," Dean Paget who was delivering the sermon,
said. He mentioned that when he
said an important word someone was
sure to cough and the congregation
was thus prevented from hearing the
word.
"Cough now;  I'll wait," he said.
One solitary diplomatic cough was
all that broke thc sudden calm ami
cessation from coughing in the few
minutes that followed while the D?an
waited for the coughers to get all
thfe coughing done they wanted to.
Then he went on preaching his sermon. The coughing was infrequent
and spasmodic after that.
Remove Beaver Protection
Vancouver, B, t'., Dec. 9.—Provincial (lame Warden Williams says it
is probable that the restriction on
hunting beaver will he raised next
fall and the following yenr in certain sections of the province. Thc
closed season of the last six years
has resulted in a rapid increase of
the animals and in some places they

Railway Lost Suit
Brantford,  Ont., Dec.  9.—  Railway
companies  in  dealing with the tramp
problem have a nice     question      on
their hands,  As the result of an    action  before  Justice Tettzcl  here    to-
I day Lloyd Brown of Urandview    was
I awarded $1000 damages by a jury for
| inpiries sustained in jumping   ofl      a
C.P.R, freight at Gait.     Brown    ad-
ini't'd that he was stealing    a    ride
and on being ordered oil      by      the
c  D : ;rtor  jumped,    with  the    result
that he lost his arm.
In answer to certain questions sub
mitted to the court the jury 'held
that the conduct of the conductor
was not reasonable or proper, an.l
that the accident was due to his neg
llgence. The proper course, it was
held, was for the conductor to stop
the train and put the man ofl or
idace bim under arrest. The case
was a retrial, which was ordered by
the court of a;.;,eal. At tlie tirst,
trial th- ' waa awarded    $2.-

Buffalo Bill
The management of thc Edison
Theatre has mad,' a contract for tho
reproduction here ol thc famous Muf-
lalo Bill Wild West. .Shows and Pawnee Hill Far East Shows. These
nro considered the finest pictures ev-
ei produced, nnd give tho entlro performance of these great shows just
as they are gi»en to millions of -people in the largest cities of the world.
The expense of getting these pictures is very great, but no doubt
when they appear ln January, the
theatre will bo well patronized.

Aminister of the Gospel is quoted
as saying of Toronto that one man
in ten drinks daily to the point of
drunkenness. We do not believe this
statement. Revelstoke is by no
nuans a city of total abstainers, but
we do not believe that there is one
man in ten here who drinks to tbe
point of drunkenness daily or at
nny time.
Mrs. John Johnson of Walla Walla
has secured a divorce from her hds-
band. Since the Reno affair ebe baa
been known as Mrs. "Jack" Johnson
In Walia Walla's exclusive social circles, and the pugilistic suggest! veness
of th; cognomen became so Intolerable that she could not even look at
her wedding ring without recalling
dis agreeable reminiscences and asked
the courts to relieve her of her offensive burden.
Revelstoke could very well adopt
tho policy of the Russian Douma in
the imposition of a tax on unmarried
people—men and women who are of
marriagable age. In Russia tbe
tax is a graduated tai according to
the incomes of the offenders. It in
probable this action in Russia will
be followod by subsidies for the parents of families above the normal to
be paid from the receipts Irom the
taxes on tbe single.
