The afternoon and evening trains brought in a number of but tho at- tt-ndanco was not nearly what raas expected. Tho city armory was elaborately decorated and trimmed in proparatiou for tbo speaking dud ball, and all arrangements possible mado for the reception and onter'tainmoii; of thoso who did como.
