At the rnvitation of the Bible
class and pastor, Biil Hanley
gave a talk at the Presbyterian
church last Tuesday evening, on
his trip through the East with
the Governor's Special which
was arranged by Louis W Hill,
of the Great Northern Railway,
for the purpose of giving the
people of the East an opportun
ity of getting first hand authen
tic information respecting the
wonderful resources of the West
Mr. Hanley was with the
special during almost the entire
tour ' and made many observa
tions. Mr. Hanley was greeted by an
overflowing house and a very
enjoyable time was spent. Dr.
L. E. Hibbard presided and Mr.
Fellows opened the program
with a finely rendered organ solo
followed by an invocation by the
Rev. JDr. Babbidge. The ladies'
quartet, composed of Mrs. Gault,
Mrs. Farre, Mrs. Gowan and
Mrs. McHoae. sang "Annie Lau
rie" which brought forth admir
ing praise. Charles and Roland
Gowan sang a patriotic duet
Dr. C. C. Babbidge introduced
Mr. Hanley who then gave a half
hour talk of the trip in an en
tertaining manner, expressing
his belief that the result of the
tour was of great benefit to the
West and that satisfactory re
sults would certainly follow.
His observations convinced him
of the necessity of the develop
ment of this vast territory for
the benefit of mankind and that
this will be accomplished in the
His talk was punctuated with
humorous incidents of the trip
that made it very entertaining.
Some of his friends suggested
that even though Bill had been
brevited "Colonel" it might be
well to also extend the handle
and add D. D since it didn't
seem at all embarassing to him
to occupy the pulpit at the church

Mr. McGowan found business

other production last night to a

Ora Hill demonstrated his
popularity with the public when
he was applauded upon coming
before the footlights and sang
two songs that were well receiv

is "The Merry Cobbler" in which
C. A. Harlan plays the leading
roll. It has a large cast thirteen
characters, and the addition to
the cast tside from the regular
members of the company, have
been carefully selected.
Had "The Merry Cobbler"
been written with a special re
gard for the requirements of
amateur players, it could not
have been happier in its results.
There is not a poor part in the
piece, and it will please patrons
by the simplicity of its story and
the strong undercurrent of heart
interest mingled with comedy
low and high, light and broad.
It will be produced Friday night,
