The Hon. Chad. H. Grosvenor, Speaker of the

When the next presidential election takes place
or some time thereafter, the awnings on Royal
street will be raised to a sufficient hei ht to permit
as ordinary man to pass beneath them without
losing his hat.
It has been suggested that the City Railroad
Company might, as a matter of accommodation 4
to passengers, have iron crossings on Canal f

lines of care land their passengers.
The boys of Pelican Hook and Ladder Com
pany No. 4 were out last night on the occasion of
their annual election, headed by a band, to the
merry notes of which they kept step on their visit 1
to their numerous friends. We return thanks for
a delightful serenade.
The Thalian Coterie gave last night one of
their delightful entertainments at Orunewald
Hall. The display of beauty was sufficient to
make those who had the good fortune to be in
vited, oblivious of the passing hours, and it was
a late hoar when the last light fantastic sounded
its last footfall.
About three months ago the Aryan Club was

U. F. T.
The hall of Home Hook and Ladder Company
No. 1 was crowded last evening with the elite of
the Sixth District, reinforced by auxiliaries
from the First and Second. There was scarcely
standing room to witness the performance, given
for the benefit of the United Friends of Temper
ance. It would be too long to go through the
whole programme and invidious to mention one
particular performer, as all did so well. We
only regret that our allotted spice forbid. men
tion of each individual artist.
There were duets for piano and violin, songs,
recitations, choruses and tableaux, all done to a
nicety. Prof. Gruneberg directed the music, and
refreshments were freely offered for a paltry con
sideration. We mean such refreshments as
friends of temperance will indulge in without
coming in too close a contact with the enemy.
The stage was "impromptu," and the scenery
painted, "all for love," by a young, and we must
add, very promising artist, Mr. J. M. Parmelee,
who is a member of the council. The
work was evidently done in a hurry,
but we noticed some fine touches in
the painting which deserve mention. To
Mr. H. C. Bauer's untiring efforts is due the
principal part of the evening's successful culmina
tion. The tableaux were particularly taste
ful and well-managed. This, if we are not mis
taken, is due to tue intelligent taste and poetical
nature of "one fair spirit" who ministered for the
occasion. We are not prepared to gush over
total abstinence soc eties, but the U. F. T,, we
know, have done a vast amount of good in the
great cause of temperance, and we are happy to
be able to record an indorsement of their good
work, such as was given last night.
Morton's Report on the Chinese.

humor and pathos; but there le secarcely need to

an evening's laugh with Vol. Sellers, shared hi'

question and was remanded to the Parish Prison t
