In honor of the two South Grey members. Miss A. C. MacPhail, M. P., and F. R. Oliver, M. P. P., the six U. F. 0. Clubs in the district surrounding Durham, staged a grand social night and dance in the Town Hall Tuesday evening of last week. From 7.30 to 10.00 p. m. a crowd of about 50O gathered in from all directions, and young and old filled it to capacity. Had the earlier evening been fine, all coming could not have gained admittance.
The early part of the evening was spent in a social way and meeting old friends and making new. Down stairs card games were in progress, while the ladies were unwrapping parcels, cutting cakes, making coffee, etc. Upstairs the floor area was occupied by the young folks in tripping the "light fantastic toe" to the best orchestra music supplied by the Edge Hill orchestra, (the Ritchie families), Rocle[?] orchestra (the Lawson's and W. Edge) and the Hooper orchestra of north Egremont.
At a fitting time the music ceased and announcement was made that the two candidates would have a word to say.
Mr. Oliver expressed his heartfelt thankfulness to the friend who had stood by him so valiantly, and congratulated all on the wonderful success of the evening.
Miss MacPhail followed briefly and did not propose to cut short the hilarity of the evening by a speech. She admitted she was fond of dancing and whispered to the young ladies present to see to it that a bashful young man in the room with a handle to his name was initiated.
Then followed the function that all could partake of and waiters of both sexes were assiduous in serving the excellent viands provided. This happy chatty hour over, the dancing was resumed and continued until about 2.15 a.m. and mutual congratulations given for the pleasant outing. --Durham Review.
