Thus weic thc terse yet plain or
dcrsthat were received on Taur ulay.
Passenger tratlic was hoa.v las'
Thursday night round thc Upem
House, and the extra crews and
switchmen put on by the above orders had their work cut out piloting
the passengers into their respective
sidings. An active and capable com
mittee handled the vast crowd as it
came into the Opera House in un incessant stream, in a manner which
showed what system and method can
accomplish.
LAVISH DECORATIONS.
The decoration scheme wns lavish
and artistic, bunting and flags being
prominent, while greenery and
strings of colored electric lamps added by their contrast, a rich glow-
over the hall. A large sign was
suspended over the stage, artistically painted with railway semaphores
and other emblems, and bearing the
words "The Railwaymen At Home
with their friends," the work of R.
Z. Crawford, and was much admired,
while a headlight and other insignia
of tbe railroad calling gave a business like aspect to the scene. A
wealth of color from ceiling to floor
gave the house a gala appearance,
nnd the committee deserve much cred
it for their skill and artistic taste.
LARGEST CROWD YET.
The gallery was thronged with interested spectators, while it is safe
to say that aever has such a large
and representative gathering been
seen in tbe opera house, evidencing
the popularity of the railroad boys,
and  their prowess as hosts.
The floor was in good condition
an.l R. Gordon and Guy Barber acting as M.C.'s and road ma iters, led
off with the Grand March. This was
undoubtedly thc biggest of its kind
ever seen in Revelstoke, anl every
guest participating went through
the evolutions of the favorite and
fascinating and alluring cirele with
pleasurable anticipation. Revelstoke
was "all there" and spirits were
high. N'ever befor? have the ladies
had such zealous cavaliers, for the
railroad boys were untiring in their
work of introducing partners and
making all feel at home.
DANCING MADE EASY.
In order to rendering dancing easy
and give the huge throng an eipial
chance, the men were divided into
the "reds" and "blueB" nnd the
scheme worked out very well. Those
on the si,ic track while tbe others
were dancing being glad of the brief
rest. Switching partners continued
till midnight, when a hault was called for slipper. A feature of the
event was the ever popular " headlight" waltz, the dancers being ilium
mated by the dazzling shaft of light
from the headlight of engine 1SS2.
FEEDING THE MULTITUDES
The more imaginative among the
audience here saw the characteristic
power of thc railroad, its progress
and value, on the other bnnd its
ioOial and human side, showing the
railroad men as princes among entertainers.
Feeding the "500O" was a triumph
of method, system and organization,
and the highest commendation must
be given to thc hosts for the manner in which they bandied this all
importantfeature of the evening.
The hall was soon cleared nfter the
many dainties had been consumed,
and "line clear" was again the order and switching recommenced;
this was no easy matter, owing
to the large number of dancers,
hut all wero out for pleasure nnd
made ii„-ht of thc sundry humps,
slides and collisions, although lew
of them wore "head-on."
QUESTS KN.invEli DANCE
Dnncing was carried oil till an
enrly hour i n Friday morning nnd
the merry crowd begun to disperse.
waiting and baggage rooms were
however, rapidly emptied and     "all
music; furnished by the Revelstoke
Orchestra, which being a new innovation are worthy of public notice,
and deserve encouragement.

Wedding Presentation
Assault and Robbery Case, Rex
vs. Griff, Dismissed
A sitting of the County Court was
held on Wednesday, the 14th inst,
with Judge Forin presiding.
The most important, and only
criminal case on the list was that of
Rex v. Grill, an election for speedy
trial. The charge preferred was rob
bery and violence. It was alleged
tbat on the night of November 10th
the accused assaulted nnd robbed nn
old man named John Finlay, in the
■vest end of the city near the railway
bridge. Finlay on being sworn stat
ed that he had come up from Arrowhead that evening with the accused
and his two companions, Genuk and
Pallia—who were held by the polico
to testify. After having a drink at
the City hotel about G:30 p.m., upon
the suggestion of the accused he accompanied him down the railway
track. When nearing the C.P.R.
bridge he was suddenly struck on the
head by the alleged assailant and
relieved of his purse containing over
a hundred dollars nnd left in an
unconscience condition. Upon recovering himself he made his way to
the Oriental hotel, where the police
and  medical aid  were summoned.
Tbe evidence of the police showed
that the accused with his two companions were arrested at the house
of Violet Blashlield, a house in the
lower town not many yards from
the scene of the alleged hold-up. At
the time he was taken into custody,
the accused had neither money or
pocket-book on his person. His companion, Pallis, however, had three
pocket-books—two containing $180.00
each and the other only a small Bum
of money. Upon investigation, shoe
marks freshly imprinted in the snow
were found leading from the spot of
the alleged robbery to the house of
Violet Blashfleld and the shoes of the
accused and his oompanioni when
fitted in these shoe-prints correspond
ed in size.
Violet Blashlield on being called
and sworn, testified that the accused
nnd his companions had come to her
house about 7:40 p.m. on the evening
of Nov. 10th, and that the accused
was apparently very nervous—going
out and coming in the back door of
her house several times.. Vernice Coil
an inmate of the house of Violet
Blashlield, corroborated the evidence
of the latter and further stated that
Pallis had shown her three pocket-
books in his possession.
The defence set up was an alibi in
support of which several witnesses
were called, the evidence of whom
showed that the accused and his com
panions were at the Victoria hotel
at the time the hold-up was alleged
to have occurred. Also thnt they
went directly down the sidewalk from
the City hotel to lower towu, and
that the accused did not accompany
Finlay down the track as alleged by
the prosecution.
His Honour, in giving judgment
lwelt upon the involved an.l complicated state of the evidence, an.l remarked upon the advanced age and
scmi-intoxicatcd condition of Finlay,
who wns apparently in his     dotage,
nd laboring under a delusion as to
his indentilication of the accused and
ickct-hock. He also pointed out,
as appeared from the evidence, that
is the accused had only been in thc
city on one previous occasion,    and
hon only at the depot, It was highly improbable that ho would suggest
walking down to lower town by way
of the track. Further, tho prosecution hnd failed to establish nny definite connection between tho money
alleged to have been stolen and thc
accused. Consequently he felt tho
prisoner should he given tho benefit
of thc doubt and dismissed the case.
W. I. Briggs appeared (or the prosecution, nnd G. S. McCartor for the
defence.
There appears to be considerable
mystery surrounding this assault and
robbery which ihould be looked Into
further by the police

Fruit Packing Schools
It is the intention of the provincial department of agricultural in the
near future to establish Iruit packing
schools in tho various fruit districts
of the province, in order to teach
up-to date nnd practical methods ol
packing and grading fruits. As an
experiment this work was organized
last season in the Oknnagan Valley
and the results obtained there have
been so generally satisfactory and
encouraging that it has been decided
to further extend this work so as
to give all the principal centreB of
fruit production tbe benefit to bc de
rived  from the fruit packing schoolB.
Moosejaw Went Dry
Itcginn, Dec. IG.—Local option was
voted on yesterday in several towns
nnd all the cities ol Saskatchewan.
From the returns received so far, it
is seen that local option carried in
only one place, namely, the city of
Moosejaw, whore it was given a majority of  190 out  of  a vote   of 20O0.
In Rcginn the measure was defected by only 89 votes, which is a
source ol satisfaction to the advo
catea ol the measure, although they
counted on a victory.
Saekatoon went in favor of the
wets by n majority of 2(;fl while in
Prince Allien local option was defeated by a majority of 321. Rosthern
Weyliui-n nnd Indian Head also voted
wet. These are all thc places heard
Irom at present, but it looks liko a
general defeat lor the drys.
Quit Work Dirty
Omaha,  Neb.,  Dec.    1(5.—Cleanliness
is not next to godliness on the   big
llniTimi.il  railroad system, where orders have just been  issued  that    the
trainman who eomes into a terminal
with clean bands or face will be sum
marlly  discharged.  In  the future all
j trainmen are expected to have dirty
hand*,  grimy faces,    dusty clothing,
nnd idn.i's that do not shine. Thc or-
[der, which is official, applies to about
36,000  employee!  and  embraces      all
lhe roads of tbe  llnrriman      system
between the Missouri river and Paget
*  and  New    Orleans to tho    l'a-
cIBi   I icean.
The   "ilirty"  order,  ab  it  Is  called
,   iin* employee* nf the road, Ib   al-
ther in the Interest of safety and
Is only one of the rules by which the
l in iiiiiiiii railroads are waging a re-
Icntless war against accidents to paB
nnl to employees.  1'nofflclai-
ly, (lie order reads:
"He  who  wishes  to  hold  his    job
ae engineer, fireman, conductor, flag
man or brnkemnn mist como into
terminals with unwished hands and
dirty face."
The Harrlmnn roads, of all lines in
the west, have lower bad wrecks
thnn any of their competitors, according to tho Interstate commerce
commission stntistics, nnd by making tho cmployocs In the train service come Into terminals with unkempt clothing and unwashed hands
and faces tbo ofllclnls expect to have
oven fewer accidents in tho future
than in tho past. AssiBtaut Genernl Mnnngcr Ware, of the Union Pacific, la crodited with having originated the "dirty" order and has
disseminated the idea among the
other roads of tho system.
According to Mr. Waro, close investigation resulted in tho disco ory
that the biggest wrecks on his n *.d
happened at terminal points. And in
ninny cases the engineer or fireman,
instead of being in the cab watching
diligently for some signal or obstruc
tion on the tracks, has been down In
the gangway, or some other convenient point, adjusting a necktie, removing ovoralls, washing his faco
and hands and making himself otherwise presentable in order that bo
would not havo to spend time doing
so after he bad surrondorod his locomotive at the end ol the run. In
some enscs it was found that both
engineer and liroman were down in
the gnngway, leaving tho locomotive
to run Itself.
Theso actions on tho part ol tho
trainmen always lako place at the
end of the run and usually as the
train is entering a city. At such
times, when streets are b-dng crossed
every minute, and when switch tracks
are very frequent, the locomotive
most  needs its driver.
To guard against thia lack
watchfulness Mr. Ware has ordered
thnt trainmen shnll not leave their
posts until the run is ended, and
iii-inin facie evidence that his order
hns been obeyed will be tho fact that
the trainmen has clean hands and
(ace or has "dressed up" in any
manner whatevor.
