WEEKLY JOURNAL-MINER. WEDNESDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 4, 1912.
JOLLY TIME AT
Two Hundred Couple En
(From Saturday's Daily.)
One of those good old-fashioned
country dances that arc fast fading
into memory, was revived on
Thanksgiving night at Hillside, and
it eclipsed in pleasure anything here
tofore known in outside tcrpsichor
In tripping the "light fantastic"
there was a scene of gaiety rampant
that had never before been equalled,
in which the five-piece orchestra of
I'liocnix went to smash in the early
morning hours and had to be sub
stituted with local musicians, They
were "all in," to use the varnacular
of the day, oyer the fast and furi
out pace set. As the sun began to
set over the Date Creek range the
first strains of the two-step herald
ed the big doings, and like in the
good old days, the last dancer reluc
tantly left the scene as the sun
came peeping up over the eastern
The occasion was a masked ball,
and the actual number who partici
pated was 200 couple, half of whom,
were grotesquely attired. The new
Hillside pavilion, that stretches over
the desert waste of 50x80 feet, erect
ed by rangentan and farmer, afford
ed ample accommodations, and this
was the second event to grace the
place. The credit for the happy and
enjoyable occasion goes to Mrs.
Robert Miller, Mrs. Guy Schultz and
Mrs. Manns, who initiated the event
and to whom its splendid success is
due. Not n murmur of discontent
was heard, and the care extended in
making everybody enjoy the occas
ion created much admiration for
these ladies. Alfred Stapp had
charge of the lloor.
Mrs. Hankers of Ramsgatc was
accorded the distinction of having
tlic best costume, and well earned
the prize awarded. Of the males,
Henry Rittcr went under the wire
as a favorite as a colored comedian.
His garb was intensified with a
makeup of the skins of rattle
snakes. During the daytime, horse and
foot racing ami other sports pre
vailed. Juan Levis had the fastest
race horse, while John Glenn was
the fleet one in the first 100 'yard
race, but n Tcmpc boy named Miller
won the second dash.
COMES TOO LATE TO
ESCAPE CALL OF DEATH
(From Frfiay's Daily.)
A very sad death occurred in this
city yesterday morning when Mich
ael McIIale succumbed to injuries
received over one year ago while
engaged in freighting with dog
teams in Alaska, when he was pinn
ed underneath a sled heavily weight
cd and was so seriously wounded
that his lungs became affected.
To escape the rigors of the north
ern winter, he came to this city on
Sunday, in the hope of being bene
fitted ty a change of climate. The
long trip overtaxed his physical abil
ity, and when the summons came he
passed away as if in a deep sleep.
Mr; McHalc was a man of ex
ceptional popularity in Alaska, ant
after a twenty years' residence his
name was a household one through
out the country. That he was be
loved by all, was attested by the
many personal letters of recommen
dation found among his effects, and
in this connection was the vomit
tary testimonial of fifteen Master
Masons of Tanna Lodge, No. 10,
of Fairbanks, duly signed and ncal
cd. commending him for his intcg
ritv. his exemplary citizenship and
Ills upright business dealings with
all. This tribute to his splcndH
rating in that country from this
lodge is a particularly noteworthy
one for the reason thai he was not
identified with that, order, hut his
-wide range of popularity embrace!
every creed, whether religions, fra
tcrnal or otherwise,
Mr. McIIale was a friend of Rob
ert and Sidney Hirch of this city
ami during his brief sojourn, was
their iiucst. These citizens reitcr
ate that he was a frontiersman of
that genial personality and generous
disposition that made him friends
by the score and not an enemy,
Kind in manners, true as a trient
and above all exemplary in any
walk of life, his loss will be mourn
