Title Statehood
Description The Program was carried out in a splendid manner. The speeches were good particularly that of President Maiben. The singing was excellent and the double quartette was all right. There were too many speeches which made the meeting too long, but we scarcely see how it could be shortened. In the evening the dances were well attended, and a good time was spent by the participants. Altogether the whole affair was a genuine success. Eddie, son of Judge Cochran had his eyes filled with burnt powder and it was feared that his eyesight would be permanently injured, but he is doing all right under Dr. Morrey's care. One thing lacking about the decorations was a picture of President Cleveland. The committee secured the services of Oliver Christiansen, to make one, but the work was not consid-ered good enough and it was reluctantly laid aside. The Sentinel-January 8, 1896 GUNNISON Inaugural Day at Gunnison was celebrated in a manner which will never be forgotten. The citizens seemed to be out in masses to show their appreciation of the boon of Statehood. Just before ll o'clock on the morning of January 6, 1896, commenced the firing of artillery and ringing of the bell while the brass band paraded the streets. The people gathered at the R.S. Hall and soon filled the building to overflow. The hall was beautifully decorated and the stores, as well as many residences were bedecked with bunt-ing and flags. Large flags were displayed over the R.S. Hall, Co-op, Presbyterian chapel, and premises of W.H. Cribble, Mrs. Julius Christensen and Edmund Sandersen. The city tendered free to the public, three dances that night. Each hall was thronged and merriment reigned supreme. Last night the smaller children danced at Johnson's. Gunnison is elated over the prospect of one of her Citi-zens being entitled to the Salt Lake Herald's gold and silver cup, as well as the honor attached if decided, that she has the first born son in the State of Utah. Anton Jensen will send in a claim for the cup in behalf of a son, GROVER JAMES JENSEN, born on Saturday morning, January 4, 1896, at 8 o'clock -45-
