OPENING OF THE
' "" FAIR AT DALLAS
IT PROMISES TO BE A WELL AT
Grounds Are Delightfully Laid Out
and the Buildings Admirably
Adapted for County Fair Purposes.
There Promises to Be a. Good Dls-
play of Exhibits In All Depart
ments and the Midway Is Crowdod
with Attractions Card Arranged
for Each Day's Races.
From Stall (.'oneJponilciil.
Dallas, Oct. 2. The llrst day ot the
agricultural exhibition nnd trotting
heeling' held under the auspices of the
Dallas Pair association was sunny nnd
warm.' Thoro was no ndmlttancc
churged, nor was there much of nn at
tendance, as the first day, ns Is usual
with county fairs, was strictly devoted
tn getting the necessary work over for
the three dnys of nctunl exhibition find
preparing to tnko care of the crowds
that are expected to be on the grounds
for the balance of the show week.
This fair Is unique In the amount of
canvas that Is used, both to shelter
portions of the exhibits and also for
the little sideshows that spring up like
mushrooms between the grand-stand
nnd llora.1 hall. There is a numerous
gathering of these even thus early and
the indications are that by tomorrow
night there will be many more, making
the fair grounds look like a camp meet
ing with Its white and varl-colorcd
The grounds are on the crown of n.
hill, about three-fourths of a mile from
the Callus station of the Lehigh Val
ley railroad. The most convenient way
for Scrantonians to reach here Is to
come by the Lackawanna road to Ben
nett, there take the trolley car to Dal
las, and then come the rest of the way
by stage or hack. Or the trip may be
made by the Lehigh Valley railroad
1 Well Laid Out.
The grounds arc delightfully laid out
land are level and high, commanding a
fine view of mountains and plains.
They embrace about thirty acres and
ln the foreground there Is a good half
mile track, well packed and free from
dust. A spacious grand-stand of two
stories fronts the Judge's stand. The
ilrst floor is given over to agricultural
products of all kinds. As yet this part
of the exhibition is not very extensive,
tut it is being gradually filled up and
by tomorrow noon the display of vege
tables, cereals and fruits will undoubt
edly prove attractive to those who love
to view nature's bounty.
The second floor of the grand-stand
Is tilled with tier upon tier of wide
plank seats fully two feet deep. In
spite of their weather-beaten looks
they are very comfortable, for they
permit a lounging attitude while wait
ing for the races.
In front of the grand-stand is the
platform from where the musicians
will breathe out harmony. It will be
occupied tomorrow and the following
two days by the Citizens' band, of Ply
mouth. About a hundred feet back of the
crand-stand is the floral hall, a low,
long building. Hero is where the most
attractive features will be on view, for
in It will be grouped good things to
eat, clothes, dairy products, fancy ar
ticles, the ladles' departments, and fur
niture, stones and sea shells. The In
ternational Correspondence Schools, of
Scranton, hasa booth filled with lit
erature descriptive or their work, a
firm of Wllkes-Barre architects have
bright signs, and a plumber has a
model bath-room set up.
The Cattle Stalls.
Back of tflo floral hall are the cattle
sta'lls. They are not very well filled as
yet, but .the fair Is young. The star
exhibit in this department is a Devon
cow with three black-and-white calves,
all born on the same day. They are
about six months old and .each of the
triplets bears a strong family resem
blance to the others, but none at all to
Another family having honors thrust
upon them Is a Shepherd dog and a
litter of seven pups, and still another is
n. cat with two kittens, Angora bred,
jvlth white fur and blue eyes.
; -.The poultry department is so full
Jhat It has been divided into two sec
tions. One occupies a row of wooden
coops about fifty feet long. This Is
given over to ducks and geese. The
other part is under a large canvas tent
and In this the coops are piled four
nnd live stories up. There is a par
ticularly fine array of pigeons under
the canvas shelter, nearly every vari
ety of homing and fancy breeds being
There Is a miniature "Midway" be
tween the grand stand and floral hall,
nnd half a dozen tents house as many
entertainments. At the head of this
street is a log cabin bearing the leg
end, "Riley's Boarding House," and In
side it room for a bout fifty boarders
Several refreshment stands como
next in lino and then tht-re Is a flfteen
foot tent with big black letters, an
nouncing the "Coontown Jubllea
Show," und half a dozen ladles nnd
gem'men of varying hues of light and
" shade sing and dnnco therein, all for
tho modest sum of one dime. Next
door to that Is another tent with "Kl
' ,KI, the Wild Man of Borneo," con
cealed in It. Our old Scranton friend,
"Boscoe, who eats 'em alive!" shares
half of this tent, ana next to that
is another with a placard telling tho
passerby that a "Refined Vaudeville
Show" has mndo it Its headquarters,
Insido this tent a strip of boarding,
three by five feet, serves u the pur
' poses of a stage, sans footlights, scen-
ery and orchestra. The last tent on
tho Midway is ono devoted to show
ing 'Tails After Dntk."
Gnmes of Chance,
Next to tho poultry tent Is a largo
clock under u canvas roof and nn ud
. mission of ten cents Is required from
all who are curious to teo its wonder
ful features, us elabointed upon by tho
enthusiasts "burker" at tho entrance.
Then there are wheels of fortune, ball
throwing games and 'other entertain
ments of various Hinds, including
palmist", tin-type tnkeis, etcetera.
Certainly tho rustle visitor will have
, no exousu for retaining his cash very
long utter ho gets on tho grounds; .If
J he ts of n cm lous turn of mind,
JL The olllcers of the fair will allow no
Intoxicants to bo sold on tho grounds,
" nor will they permit any gambling
. or any machines used for that purpose
, Inside their enclosure. They wish all
Visitors to enjoy themselves, but will
not lei that enjoyment be a nulsanoa
to others of aNuioro sedate nature.
The prjmlum list Is given up to sev
enteen divisions and over $3,000 Is of
fered In the various departments as

Lexington, Ky., Oct. 2. The twenty
eighth fall meeting of the Kentucky
Trotting Horse Breeders' association
opened today with an exceptionally
large attendance. The feature was the
great Kentucky futurity for $16,000 for
3-year-olds. There were nine starters
and Fereno, owned by L. V. Hnrkness,
won in straight heats. In the second
heut Fereno broke the futurity record
by coming under the wire in 2.10, the
previous record being that made by

New York, Oct. 2. Beau Gallant
won the rich Matron stakes at Mor

of the favorite, Commando. Coming
down the stretch, Commando was two
lengths ahead of the other nine horses,
with Jockey Spencer crouched over his
neck. The boy thought ho had the
race in hand nnd was apparently win
ning easily, when Bullman brought
Beau Gallant up with n rush on tho
rail. Spencer did not see him until
it was too late to got his mount going
again as, to all appearances, he was
easing up, and Beau Gallant snatched
a victory and earned the winners share
of the purse, $1-1,000, for his owner, S.

The nroi.test strike in tho history of the world
U drawing to n close, Already the great coal
earning rallrcrdi hac agreed to Increase your
bilges ten per cent, which fa a great victory In
Itself. True It Is not rndiigh, It doe not sat
isfy us, hut tho time is not far distant when
the anthracite, coat miners will receive as much
for their labor as any other clasa of workmen in
In this struggle do not place alisolutc faith
tn John Mitchell or any other one man. Put
jour faith In the nrganltatlon. Work hard for
lis prosperity, for the stronger It Is, the better
jou arc armed for the struggle In which )cu
lire now engaged. This strike shall not he dc
itaied n(I by me. It shall not he ended until a
convention of anthracite miners shall no Oeclde.
V.ny union and every colliery will be asked
to send on? or more delegates to n convention
to determine tho question for themselves. Your
Interests nro gmter than mine. I atnll not de
cide the question of your going bach to work.
You must vote on that yourself. I will not pre
tend to detcrmlna. your fate or that of the 500,
GCfl who nro directly affected by this struggle.
Mr. Mitchell then briefly reviewed the
struggles of the miners during the
past forty years and said that the min
ers cannot expect to have all the evils
which have been heaped upon them
during the last half century of unor
ganized labor righted at once. Con
tinuing Mr. Mitchell bald:
I firmly believe that viclory will be achieved
by the men standing together. Do not let otic
of you move until ull move. If you stand to
gether we will achicc a greater victory than
was cer attained by labor la the anthracite coal
region. If nothing else is achieved than the
tuklng ot the young bojs, who today yelled a
I pasvil them in tfie parade that ".Mitchell U
all light," out of the breakers nnd placing them
in the schools the futuic will show that Mitch
ell was nil right. I am firmly of the belief that
the mothers of the breaker boys nightly pray
to the ltuler of tho universe to decide in favor
of the men, so that their boys can go to tin
schools. A miner should receive for bis labor as much
ns any man on earth, so that he, blinbclt, can
build a home on the present tumbling ruins ot
his hovel lullt by the companies, and so that
he can nfford to nllcw his children to have the
advantage of the college, too.
Through the cflorts of the United Mine Work
ers we can secure justice for all. We want to
stand together and I hope that not one man will
desert the ranks ot the union nnd thit not one
man will go bak to the mines until the vic
tory is complete.
The national president was followed
by Fred Dilcher, of Ohio; Benjamin
James, of Pennsylvania, both members
of the executive board, and "Mother"
Mary Jones. After the meeting, Presi
dent Mitchell was driven through
cheering crowds to his hotel, where he
will remain until S o'clock tomorrow
morning, when he will return to
President Mitchell's address, as far
as outlining any future move on the
part of the labor leaders Is concerned,'
was a disappointment. Ho intimated
very strongly last night that he would
dcllne the position of the union today
on the ten per cent, concession. His
failure to do so has caused the Im
pression to go out that he is still un
decided what should be done, and that
he Is probably waiting for local unions
to take some kind of action first.
On the other hand, there are some
people who are in close touch with
tho situation who believe that Mr.
Mitchell knows exactly what he is do
ing. They argue that his telling the
men that they enn settle the ten per
cent. Increase question by holding a
convention, was a broad hint to the
locnl lenders to carry out the sug
gestion. Mr. Mitchell had no news
touching upon negotiations for settle
ment to give out today. He said there
was absolutely no change in the situa
tion. President Mitchell, In answer to a
direct question tonight, said that not
one local union in the entire anthracite
coal field had requested the calling of
a convention of the miners.
When the correspondents told Mr.
Mitchell that there hud been some
disappointment expressed because he
failed to give out any information in
his speech, he replied wfth a smile,
that he "almost said something," but
caught himself before It was too late.
Ho said today's labor demonstration
was the greatest he had ever seen, and
was of the opinion that it augured
well for the cause of the miner.
IN NO HURRY
They Are Willing to Await the
Pleasure of the Men in the Mat
ter of Accepting Increase.
By IXcluslvo Wire from The Associated Press,
Wllkes-Barre, Oct. 2. The coal oper
ators of thp Wyoming valley who post
ed notices at their collieries last night
notifying their employes of a-10 per
cent, increase In wages, had no Infor
mation from their men today as to
whether the offer would bo accepted or
not. They thought the strikers were
too busy with the parade and mass
meeting to take any notion. The oper
ators are In no hurry and will wait
tho pleasure of the strikers. Tho
miners, however, have about made up
their minds that they will not consid
er the offer. Tho Increase, they say,
is a mere trlilo and not worthy of con
sideration. Tho fact that the operators have
made what appears to bo u studied ef
fort to Ignore the miners' union, Is
what galls tho strikers most. They
say it Is useless to talk of a settlement
unless tho presidents of the big coal
companies make up their minds to re
cognize tho union. One of the officers
of tho United Mine Workers' council
of this district said today;
"I don't see how an agreement can
bo reached so long as the union Is left
out of tho negotiations. Tho operators
might ns well understand now as later
on thut the union has como to stay
and that It will Insist on Its demands

the Betterment of Miners' Wages.

New Tork, Oct. 2. Vice President
Suyre, of tho Lehigh Valley railroad,
said today regarding tho strikers' re
fusal to accept the ten per cent. In
crease In wages offered them by some
"I cannot tell what our next step
will be In case tho striking miners
definitely nnd absolutely reject our
concessions. It is a contingency which
we have not had occasion to discuss
much as yet. This much is certain,
however, the companies will wait some
little time before taking any further
steps and will giro their former em
ployes tlmo to thoroughly understand
thn situation. In dealing with auch
men It does not do to bo In too much
of a hurry. Many of them nre for
eigners, Illiterates, nnd spenklng only
foreign languages. They can hardly
be said to be thoroughly responsible
for what they do. The English-speaking
miners were never onthuslnstlc for
"The union's action now shown that
whatever his Intention mny have been,
the betterment of tho miners' wages
was not Mr. Mitchell's object."

rupted by a man who cried out: "What
about tho trusts?"
Governor Roosevelt "What trust do
Inquirer "Oh, tho Ice trust, beef
trust, the oil trust and all of them."
Governor Roosevelt "Shall I tell you
about Chairman Jones' cotton bale
trust, or Richard Croker's Ice trust?"
Governor Roosevelt continued:. "He
puts the question In good faith, and I
will try to answer it In good faith. The
trusts at present have to be dealt with
each state by Itself, A denunciation
of trusts Is of no value when not con
nected with action. Democratic de
nunciation of trusts amounts to noth
ing when Mr. Jones, chairman of the
national Democratic committee, is at
the head of the cotton bale trust, and
when Mr. Croker, the leader of the
New York Democraey, has a large
ownership in another. These facts con
vict them of insincerity, and that Is all
there Is about It.
"There was a chance to give tho na
tional government power to deal with
trusts awhile ago, when the Republi
can party In congress submitted a
resolution for an amendment to the
constitution In June, giving the na
tional government power to deal with
"That measure was supported by
every Republican but two in congress
and voted against by every Democrat
but four In congress. That is what
about the trusts and that is not talk,
my friend, but deeds."

Closing Work of the Campaign.

By Kxcluslve Wire from The Associated Press.
New York, Oct. 2. Concerning the
report that ex-Presldent Harrison, who
came to the city last night, with his
family would likely make a few
speeches during the campaign, It was
learned during the day that the na
tional campaign committee wrote him
about a month ago asking him to take
some active part in the campaign, Mr.
Harrison replied asking the comittee
not to press him to make any speeches
early in the campaign. He explained
that he had overworked himself In the

Argument Against Imperialism.
By Kxcluslve Wire from The Associated Picas.
Richmond, Va., Oct. 2. A largo
crowd assembled tonight at the Reser
voir Park Casino, a mile from tho city,
to hear Hon. David B. Hill, of New
York, speak. Mr. Hill's- speech was
largely confined to a constitutional ar
gument against Imperialism. Ho hard
ly touched upon the financial Issues.
Ho said that, as Imperjnllsm was the
paramount Issue, It was natural and
proper thut ho should confine his ad
dress to that theme,
He stood squarely on the Bred Scott
decision, under which, he argued, the
constitution applied to all thut terri
tory held by tho United Stutes. Ho
denied thut this feature of tho decision
had been either formally or Informal
ly reversed, and claimed that It
brought the territories and our now
possessions under the constitution. Mr.
Hill left late tonight for Danville,
where he will sneak tomorrow.
