The proceeds from the charity ball to be
Klven in Ellis Opera house Friday even
ing, which was originally intended to be
for the benefit of the Episcopal church,
will be devoted to the very worthy object
of establishing a hospital in Sumpter.
This change of plan has been brought
about by the request of several gentlemen
who employ large numbers of men and,
recognizing the great need of such an In
stltutlon here, offer to make liberal dona
tions for this purpose.
General Warren, of the Sumpter Town
site syndicate, will donate a choice site;
C. J. Johns gives fifty dollars cash; sev
eral other parties lesser amounts, and a
number of mining men have agreed to
furnish and maintain rooms in the hos
pital. V. L. Vinson has promised to
give "any reasonable amount of money,"
not naming the sum. Every one who
knows the man will gamble on the prop
osition that he will do the handsome
thing in this instance, as he always does.
It Is the Intention of the ladies in
charge to have the building erected and
the hospital open for the reception of pa
tients with no unnecessary delay. It is
stated that the Episcopal church of Port
land will interest itself in the cause and
assist in the maintenance of the Institu
tion, if such assistance shall be needed.
Tickets to the ball have been reduced in
price from 2.oo to $1.50, and It is hoped
that no one in Sumpter will overlook this
golden opportunity to help a most worthy
object, and one very much needed, withall,
and at the same time get their money's
worth by spending a most delightful
evening. The ladles who are In charge
of the entertainment are sparing no ef
fort to make It the leading social feature
of the season, and of their success there
Is not the shadow of a doubt.
At some date subsequent to the ball, to
be named In the next issue of THE
mini:, me ladles ot Sumpter are re
quested to meet in the rooms of Mrs.
General Warren, in the Austin building,
for the purpose of organizing a hospital
The Comic Players.
Stuart & Bird's comic players presented
the farce comedy Pa Pa at the Kossland
opera house last evening to a crowded
house. The play abounds In funny situ
ations and the company brought each of
these out effectively. The audience
smiled, snickered and laughed from the
rise to the fall of the curtain. The fun
was fast and furious. The company left
a good impression and will be welcomed
warmly when they play a return engage
ment. Rossland Miner. This strong
comedy company of fifteen artists will ap
pear in Ellis' opera house, this (Wednes
