for not paying the printer. We are

j The firs grand ball given by Mesa
I Lodge N<». 14 I. O. 0 F., on Thur*-
• j *
• day night ot last week, was the bail
! par excellence of the Salt River
valley, Every arrangement bad been
• made to render the occasion pleasant
and enjoyable to the guests, and the
effort was a brilliant success. The
Hall bad been beautifully decorated j
and the sidewalk leading to the Run- j
bull Home was illuminated with *
Chine-e lanterns as was also the I
grounds around the Hall. Over the j
entrance from the sidewalk to the i
Hall was a large arch romp wed of
' palm leaves, evergreens and illumi
nated with lanterns. There were
! eighty couple present and from eight
o’cioek p. in. to four a. m- the merry
guests enjoyed the mazy dance. At

And now the musical ladies of Mesa
are not to be outdone by any of our
suburban towns, because our prosper
ous city has as fine musical talent »«
there is in the territory. The ladies
are to meet Saturday night to organ
ize a cornet band. The citizens of
Mesa ought to give every encourage
ment to this laudable undertaking,
seeing th*it the boys of Mesa b ind did
not possess cohesive power enough to
keep up their organization. The Free
Press commends the lad : es for this !
undertaking, and we believe that ere
long our Ladies’ band will be second
to no band in the territory. A part,
at least, of the instruments belonging
to the defunct band belong to the city,
and these onght to be turned to the
ladies, and the citizens ought to pro
curesuch other instruments as may be
needed. Geo. Emmett, who teaches
the Tempe ladies band, will be the
teacher here He is a competent i
musician and in the not long hence |
our crystal air will pulsate wiih dulcet j
harmony from the fair cornetists of
Mesa.

The following eloquent perora
tion closed the speech ou ihe
Silver question, delivered by Sen
ator Mitchell of Oregon in the
Senate the other day: ‘‘Demon
etize and utterly destroy silver as
a money metal, as ia proposed by
the pending hill, aud the record on
history’s page of the disgraceful
scramble among the nations, that
must ineviubly follow, for the
possession of the world’s supply of
gold will be a dark and ineffaceable
blot on the civilization of the age.
Then each of the great powers,
like ihe miserable miser in the
Chimes of Normandy, will cry,
“Gold ! Go’d !G >M !’’ and to ob
tain it no sacrifice of either interest
or honor wdl he too great, not even
the reduction of the people to a
system of peonage or serfdom. Jjet
this he done, tiicn the little less
than four thousand millions of gold
of the world will become the
mighty and attractive jack-pot for
the posse*siau of which the dice of
the nations will he thrown. And
pending that great international
game, in which nations will he the
gamblers, the best interests, the
most sacred rights, the brightest
hopes, the highest aspirations of
the great masses «f the people will,
it >s feared, go down forever in
impenetrablc'darkm;Eß and irretriev
able ruin.”
