As the procession marched the main street they presented v9vv natty appearance in tneir uni forms aad for the tiret time the Laurium rfPDartment was seen in a body. Many peoplo were not even aware that our mnntpr euberb could boast of a regular organized company, and many were the umentArv remarks h 'ard on the' r npat aDDearance. The old hall, without decorations ot any kind, presented an unusually bright and inyitiDg appearance, The floor was m excellent condition tor dancing which bezan shortlr after 9:30 o'clock. The ballroom was not overly crowded, there beine iust enough present to make danc iog a pleasure. The music furnished by Mnrfrnn'a nrcheHtra was all that could be deBired and the dance proceeded with out a hitch until the wee small hours.

' The lady riders will arrive Sunday afternoon and a meeting will be called Monday at the Taylor .House where the referee and official scorers will be ap pointed for the race. Considerable rivalry exists between the riders , as this is tbe first time they hsve appeared in a race all at the same time, and as each is out to capture the lion share of the $400 prze offered by the management, tbe race will be a hot one each nights . , From the tap of the gong the track and grounds are to be brilliantly illuminated by the use of twenty large Baker lamps which arrived this morning from Chicago, and the track will be made nearly as light as day daring the contest. Accom modation has been made for toaccommo date fully 2,000 people and, all will get a good view The management has spared no expense to bring this ctiy the best riders and it is safe to say' that society people to the number o! several hundred will be represented in the grand stand at the opening Monday night. , Dedication of the New Catholic Ceme tery. , Tomorrow will beared letter day in Catholic circles, the occasion being tbe dedication of the new Catholic cemetery adjoining the Lake View Cemetery.
