Price's big celebration was given as per schedule today, with the greater part of the exercises held this evening at the town hall. Councilman, Levi Harmon had charge of the program and the exercises, and , with the help of other members of the board, had planned everything nicely.

At different times throughout the day the new brass band gave selections and a dance was held at the town hall for the little folks in the afternoon. It had been planned to have a big barbeque but this had to be given up at the last moment. At eight o'clock one of the largest crowds that ever gathered in the town hall assembled to witness the literary part of the program. The stage by hard work has been very prettily decorated for the occasion, in colors and electric lights.

AN immense horse shoe, the sign of good luck, had been set on the rear of the stage and profusely decorated with electric lights. Across the top of the stage was the legend, "PRICE CITY" also in colors and illuminated with many lights. The members of the Council were seared on the stage, together with several prominent citizens and pioneers.

The mayor, W. F. Olsen occupied a seat under the horse shoe. At the proper time he gave a splendid address, in the nature of a sentiment, telling some of the things that the Council is planning for Price in the future, and in the present. A.W. Horsley one of the pioneers of the city,who came tot eh valley in 1883, gave a fine address on "What Price was, what it is, and what it will be." His remarks were timely and to the point and he delighted the audience with bits of his droll humor, which were heartily appreciated. In beginning he said "what Price was, won't take long to tell, what Price is, will take a little longer; what Price is going to be will take all night and then some."

Bishop Albert Bryner gave a short talk on pioneer conditions, and Levi Harmon gave an excellent closing address on the present and the future prosperity of the city. The program was complete with good things in the way of music by the school and Price orchestra and the band.

The men's quartette was greatly appreciated and heartily encored. Following the program, the floor was cleared for the dance, in which many participated.
