bonfires, sizzling of crackers and all
the outward manifestations of an ear

ple of Scranton to give full vent to their
pent up enthusiasm. It expired ninld

returned fervid thanks. Though at
tacked on all sides by the fire fiend the
city bad been preserved intact.
Though there was no spread eagle
demonstration in the city yesterday,
there were attractions sufficiently varied
to allow all to follow the vent of the
inclinations in observing the day. The
shower at 5 o'clock gomewhat marred
the pleasure of the day, but it lasted
only a short time and then the inter
rupted festivities were resumed. There
were elaborate decorations on the
buildings, public and private, in all
parts of the city.
INTERESTING BICYCLE RACES.
Thjusandi Saw Thsm at thn Srlviua-
Park Yiijtarday Afternoon.
The licycle raws at the Driving park
yesterday afternoon, conducts 1 by the
crantou Bicycle club, absorbed u
greater number of people than any one
event in or about the city. The cov
ered grand stand was crowded and the
temporary bleachers erected on either
tide of that weather-beaten aud dilapi
dated hulk were loaded with living
Within tbe enolosare encompassed
by the race track hundreds of persons
were lined up against the fence and the
scores of carriages were crowded with
persons who, from tile soats or top!.
surveyed tbe track and watched the
work of the lithe, brown-armed young
men who competed in the various
races. A conservative estimate placed
the number present at 5,001).
1 here was enthusiasm galore.
Whenever n favorite flushed over the
ribbon as a winner in any of the events

blare of horns, would burst forth and

A I'lCTntESQUE SCENE.
The graud stand presented a most
picturesque scene dnring the races.
It contained hundreds of ladies in
gay summer nttire, many ot them
wearing the colors of their favorite
club. The orange and black of Scran
ton was of course the most conspicuous,
but tho cnr'inal and black of Wilkes
Barre also fluttered from many femin
ine bosoms. Several ladies had impro
vised bands for their j-ninty sailor hats
out of cinb colors, lbs young men
went further, aud not only used tbe
colors for hat bund., bnt also decorated
themselves with neckties of orange and
black and badges of every conceivable
shape and color.
This study in color was further com
plicated by the many colors of uni
forms worn by the 'cyclers, the whole
forming a most impresuve picture
whenever a move of enthusiasm stirred
The races were interesting and well
contested. witu a last track, a
favorable wind and perfect weather

favor and could not have wisbsd for
Scranton has reason to congratulate
itself on the showing its youug riders
made. Shiffer and Newman won first
prizo, Gilmore a second and Gregory
and Wuldner third prizes. Weyandt,
of Unntnore, also won a second prizi
and Winans.of fr'crantod, won a special
prize of a gold watob for being the

Ia tbe first race of the day occurred tho
only event that marred the occasion
A young man named Henrv Wilby. of
this city, who rode under the name of
Harry Waldner, was thrown from his
wheel and was(t first thought to be fat

During the last race the clouds began
to lower omlniously and tbe crowd had
scarcely began to disperse when the
large drops begau to descend and a few
moments Inter the rain was descend
ing in sheets.
WKRB A FINANCIAL SUCCESS
Aside from the Urge erowl and the
consequent financial success of tbe
meot, the results of the different races
more than amply paid the Sorauton
Bicycle club for all the expense and
troublesome details entailed by the
preparations ot the past six weeks,
Two first prizes, two second prizes and
two third prizes were won by repre
sentatives of tbe local club. In addi
tion, tho cold watch offered by the

A NEW RECORD MADS
The state combination race record
of 2:19 25 was expected to be daugor
onsly nenr to smithereens when thn
Class B crackajacks came on for the

It was complutelysmashed, us was also

when be established the following:
Taylor, scratch; Titus, 10 yards;
Murphy, 15 yards; Hilferr, B5 yards;
Brandt, 45 yards. Stenson, 75 yards;
Allen, 85 yards. At the first half San
son's lend seemed safe and he showed
the field the way around tbe first
tnr l of tlm second half, with Allen
midway between him and the bunch.
Allen was headed ou the far turn by
Titus and Murphy soon followed. As
they swung home the order was, Sten
son, 15 yards to the good, Titus, Mur
phy, Allen, Taylor, Helfert. Stenson
won hands down aud Murphy to k set)

from the wire.

ers took matters easy on the first bait
and filed past the grand stand well
bunched with Banker in the ruck,
Krick. of Rsading, in the 'lead, and
Cerser in a fair position near the lead
ers and on the rail. After making the
first quarter turn Corser, profiting by
bis experlencs earlier iu the day,
humped his baok all the way to the
last tarn, where ha had Krick in trou
ble and was' ready to try conclusions
with Banker who sure enough collared
him in the streteb, Corser, however,

races ot the day und the time, 1. 14 2 5,

which happened early In the race.
There were six starters. McLaughlin.

standing nenr the rail was struck by
MeLaughila'a handle bar and toppled
over on the track. lit quickly re
gained his feet and senrriud oil the
track. McLaughlin 'kept pumping
along and gained sovoral more yards
on the field. The others hud noticed
tbe collisiou and slowed up. Goiug up
the back Btretch the Columbia man
was easily thirty yards to the good of
Stonson and Brandt who were leading
the others. Taylor and Murnhv were
last in the order namod. Before tho
last turn 'was reached thev ODened
throttle andontored tho streteh fourth
and third. McLaughlin gave up the

The Wilkes-Barre cohorts went mad
with joy when Keller, to whom they
pinned their faith, woo the Class A,
two-mile handicap, from Lwis, of
Swarthmore, by a hair-breadtb. There
were thirteen starters and the first
mile was slow and on tho waiting order,
but the last three-quarters would have
maile Snapper Gairisou's hair carl. It
looked iu tho earlier stages ofHhe raco
as though the handicapper had over
reached himself. The fivld was di
vided into two distinct bunches for
the first mile and a quarter with Stev
ens, of Heading; Jamos, Wilkes-Barre,
and Lewis, of Swarthmore, as leaders
of tho first division. No material
change was made nntil the baokstretoh
In the last half was reached, when
Keller, who had acquired the opeu
tore away from the second bunch and
played tail end in the-follow-your-leader
game into the stretch. Lewis,
of Swarthmore, was with Keller and
could not be shaken more than a foot,
by which margin the Wilkes-Darretin
won. Measure, of Philadelphia, third

From an hour previous to the lime
announced for the starting of the
morning bicycle parade until it had
piRSd along the various streets fully
153,000 people lined the sidewalks to
see the men glide by, and perhaps 5,000
more occupied windows, porches and
other sightly positions. After it was
all over a half doz mi bicyclists, stran
gers in tho city, who stood in front of
the Westmiuster, pronounced the pro
cession one of the finest local u Hairs
that had been given in the state. It
was also the general verdict that in
point of numbers, pace and on

better than the one or the day previous

everything considered, tho decision
was a just one.
Along the line of parade the con-

bun suits, topped with jaunty cherry
colored caps, would win the silver
trophy. The gentler sex, particularly,

Willinmsport men had it host of ad

that tho men from the city of floods
