ed by Mr. Gallagher, Give Very
Creditable Concert at- Vail.

to'Be Present—Mayor O'Connor'
Fills His Place.
VAIL, Dec. 25—Special—
The concert given by the Misses
Hickey and Dugan, assisted by Mr.
Gallagher, was a decided success. Ow
ing to the condition of the roads the
hall.was not as croVded as would have
been otherwise. The voluntary offer
ing amounted to $45, which was very
good. Hon. M. M. White, whose name
appeared on the program as speaker
of the evening, was unable to be pres
ent, but as usual our Mr. O'Connor
vety creditably filled the place, de
livering one of the best addresses we
have ever listened to. considering the
few minutes' notice given him. it Is
needless to say the entertainment was
excellent when we consider the artists,
Miss Hickeyi, a graduate from the voice
department of Prake university, Des
Moines, and Miss Dugan, graduate
from the Columbia School of Music,
Chicago. These young ladies have at
tracted audiences in these cities and
the home audience was more than
pleased to accord them the reception
they deserved. Mr. Gallagher is also
an able performer on the violin and
his assistance was greatly appreciat
ed. The Red society is very grateful
to these young people for the volun
teering of their time and talent for so
worthy a cause. The following is the
program rendered:
