! Firemen's Meeting.
On Monday the streets of our town were
. crowded to see the Firemen's parade. The
t parade formed on Jefferson St. and march
i ed over the principal street* of the town in
| the following order: Consolidated Band,
A(=>i-'.ant Chiefs, Merhling and Schaffner,
; Markham Hook and Ladder Co., Spring
i dale Hose Co.. J. S. Campbell Hose Co.,
Good Will Hose Co., and the First Ward
Hose Co.
Quite a number of people followed the
companies to the meeting, which was pre
sided over by G. Wilson Miller, who made
a brief statement "fthe object of the meet
ing; J. D. Northrup, Jacob Backhalter,
and W. T. Mechling spoke of the benefit.-
to be derived from the Convention.
Remarket were then called upon from
the business men present, and C. A.
Templeton expressed the sentiment that
no matter what the convention should cost
—lie considered $2,000 a very low figure—
the business men of Bntler should advance
it because they are indebted to the fire de
partment far beyond that amount. Lower
rates of insurance and protection from fire
is given Butler as a result of the work of
the department and everybody should con
tribute liberally. Geo. D. Ogden, of the
West Penn road, had a word to say of the
enjoyment that could be had from a con
vention of this kind, having heard of the
way the Altoona people regarded the one
held there some years ago, in a recent con
versation with a gentleman of that city.
W. A. Stein was invited by the chair to
make a few remarks abont the matter. Mr.
Stein expressed himsilf of the opinion that
the amount of money needed would be
forthcoming when asked for by the finance
committee and said that the citizens owed
it to the fire department to contribute the
money, regardless of the return that might
result. F S. Clark, of the Park Hotel,
had a few appropriate remarks to make in
which he said that he wouldn't give a cent
for a town that couldn't contribute $2,000
for a firemen's convention. He thought
there ought to be more money than that
raised and said he was willing" to give his
share ol twice that amonnt. W. H. Ens
minger and a few others spoke in a genor
al way of the convention and the meeting
adjourned after extending a vote of thanks
to the band for its services
Graves of the Dead.
To protect the graves of the dead is one
of the hi hest and best traits of our nature.
We are pleased to learn ofa movement by
some of our citizens to look after the con
dition of the old and first burial place of
this town. The bones of many of the early
citizens of Butler and vicinity yet rtpose
there, never having been removed to any
of the new cemetries. The grounds and
fences of this old place are fast falling in
to decay. Hence the movement to rescue
it from further delapidation and desecra
tion, a meeting has been held by some
citizens, and a committee appointed to se
cure the necessary funds to preserve the
first place of the dead. This effort should
The Union Scout.
The well known war drama, "The
Union Scout," was presented at the Arm
ory Opera House, Tuesday and Wednesday
nights and will bo repeated this, (Thursday)
night, by amateur actors of Butler, for the
benefit of the IT. V. L.
The play was creditably presented and
the tableaux were exceptionally fine and
well produced.
Bel Hindmau, as the "coon" was as fun
ny as usual and Jas M. Maxwell makes a
good dutchman The ladies, Miss Criswell,
Vandling and Mrs. Del Uindman were un
usaally good for amateurs. Kuben Mc-
Elvain added greatly to his laurels, and
I. J. McG'andlesß, as General Sherman,and
Rev. Cupps, as Major Cobb looked like
real soldiers. Oscar McClung, as Frank
Harrison, the Union Scout, played his
part well, as did all tho cast. The sham
battle by the members of Company E was
a pleasing part of the performance.

APRIL 25th.
"The Fairies' Well" is drawing splendid
audiences to Halvin'a this week. Those
who have seen the play aro enthusiastic in
their praises of it, and it is probable
that even the Murphy engagement last
week will be eclipsed in a financial sense.
Geo. 11. Timmons certainly has a great
future before him. He has surprised, nay,
astounded, his friends by the cleverness of
his work as "Larry Deo." Another thing
that contributes very materially to the
success of the production is the excellence
of the supporting company. It is so sel
dom that so strong a company is seen in a
play of this kind that »ne may be pardoned
for gushing just a little bit. Mr. Timmons
must needs bo bright to shine in such
company.—Cincinnati' Times Star
