From the Daily Examiner, Feb. 6, 1892.


The Carnival at Victoria Friday night last was a great success financially and otherwise. The storm the night previous prevented a great many from attending. The Summerside - and discoursed sweet music, and they deserved credit for coming through the almost impassable state of the roads. The committee of management did all in their power to make the evening pass agreeably and pleasantly, and we believe everyone was satisfied with the evening's sport.
