Last Friday evening two of Sweet
Home’s young men sought to give
an invitation dance or ball, where
upon some of the citizens thought
that the giving of the dance was in
strict violation of the ordinance.
Mr. Story having been appointed
marshal, at the opening of the dance
immediately proceded to the hall,
and with, his deputies placed the
young men under arrest and brought
them before the recorder. The' re
corder immediately read that ! part
of the ordinance to the young men
which relates in particular -to the
dance. Said ordinance stating in
section 13, Dance hall shall pay a
license of $20 per quarter. In sec-
tioh 16 it also states that parties
wishing a license must apply to the
city treasurer for the same, pay the
required fee, take a receipt specify
ing thè trade, for hoW long, to

then present the receipt to the re
corder and get the license.
Now it so happened that the; city
was without a treasurer and the
council well knew the fact, but
owing to the failure in having a
meeting, did not appoint a treas
urer. Now the ordinance gives the
recorder no alternative in such
matters, consequently the recorder
seeing nothing else to be donp, dis
missed the defendants in the case.
.It is said that the dance was con
ducted in a most orderly manner,
being free from, the rowdyism which
has, heretofore, caused Sweet Home
dances to become unpopular.
