THE SCUANTON TRIBUNE-THURSDAY, OCTOBER 11, 190b.
BIG THRONG AT THE
THE GHIIA WEATHER WAS A
HANDICAP TOO. .
If It Is Warm Today the Manage
ment Is Confident It Will Have
from 18,000 to 25,000 People on
the Grounds Judges at Work Dis
tributing Prizes Midway Was
Thronged with Sightseers All Day.
Bace Attracted the Greatest Atten
tionWinners of tho Events.
From a talT Correspondent.
Bloomsbunr, Oct. 10. Over 6,000 per
sons thronged the spacious grounds of
the Columbia County Fair association
here to-day, viewed the exhibits In
the mammoth exposition hall, strolled
through the Midway, enjoyed the
varied attractions there presented and
watched with keen Interest the thiee
good horse races which were run off.
The cold northwesterly wind doubtless
served to keep away a number of spec
tators, but, Just the same, it was the
biggest, merriest crowd that had ever
been seen hero on tho commencement
of a fair in all the forty-six years of
Its existence. And, no wonder; for it
is worth traveling many miles to par
ticipate In. The managers argue for
to-day's attendance that with fair
weather to-morrow there will be from
18,000 to 25,000 patrons.
During the day many features of In
terest were on the programme arrang
ed. Of course the horse races were the
premier attractions. Of these Heart
of Oak, of Plttston, won the first:
Prince M of Herrlck Centre, the sec
ond, and the third was secured bv
Allen S., of Carbondale.
Between tho heats there was an at
tempt to have a dog race. Two stait
crs came up In single sulkies. The first
time, right after the word, "Go," a.
wheel on one of the sulkies broke,
and the race was postponed. When
they again appeared one of the dogs
had a fit of sulks and would not co.
They were again taken off and two
teams of two dogs each started and
went half a mile, being driven bv
small boys. Then an equipage with
four dogs trotted out on the track and
Cold Day for Them.
There were also acrobatic perform
ances on a high platform, directly In
front of the grand stand, to amuse the
crowd while waiting for the horses, as
well as a clever troupe of trick dogs.
On the Midway, feminine performer1?
stood out In the chilly air with bare
arms and bosoms and short skirts to
allure the gazing multitudes within
their different show tents.
The 2.40 class trot for Columbia
county horses was postponed until to
morrow afternoon, to take the place
of the 2.S0 trot, which did not fill.
At 9 o'clock the Ninth Regiment
bund from Wilkes-Banc marched Into
the grounds In full military uniform
and playing an inspiring march. This
was the signal for the formal opening
of the fair. Immediately after that,
the Judges In the various department")
were assembled in Secretary Yost's of
fice, provided with a liberal supply of
blue and red tickets, emblematical or
first and second premium?, and sent off
to discharge their duties. The largest
crowd of all that followed after them
went over Into the horse paddock to
witness the judging of the best samples
of horse flesh. F. G. Smith was the
umpiio In this division. He made each
owner put his hoise or colt through
his best paces in a promenade about
100 feet long. His decisions seemed to
give general satisfaction, although in
bovoral cases the exhibits were so
nearly equally matched that it was
hard for him to make a selection.
Tho road horses, single and double
teams, wore driven around tho track
and their gait and style counted in
the. awarding of the premiums. This
work occupied two hours and n half,
and was very Interesting to a large
body of onlookcts.
Making the Awards.
Tho other Judges, especially those In
the poultry and ladles' depirtments,
will liardly be able to get tluough their
work before some time to-morrow. Tho
long exhibition hall is packed full of
choice specimens of the work of deft
feminine tlngets, and Is as pretty a
collection of dainty things as was ever
displayed In this or any other fair.
The Midway was full of slght-soers
all dav. Theio are all manner of en
tertainments on view there, most of
tnem of n decidedly frothy nature. One,
however, Is of a more grovvbome eiiht.
That Is where n nuin named Yerny
Is supposed to be burled alive. At 11
o'clock this morning ho was placed In
a largo pine box, with a blanket and
a pillow, lowered Into a hole four feet
deep, and the box was covered over
with sand. There will he stay, accord
ing to his manager, until 4 o'clock Fil
duy nfternoon, without food or drink.
A large air chute leads from the
giound Into the cofUn to supply him
with breathing muteilal. Another en
teitalnment, If it ran be called such,
Is "Boseo," who advertises to eat live
snakes. Ho has a rival here In "nos
co," a feminine, whose appetite runs
In the same peculiar channel. Then
there Is a "Moorish Palace," a eolore.l
vnrlety show, and many kindred enter
prises, some In substantial buildings,
but more in canvas tents, through
which the chill October winds whistle
and howl In a manner that Induces a
close buttoning of overcoats.
Tho first race of tho day was called
at 1 o'clock, but tho horses did not
Bet going for some time after thnt.
ritarter F- G, Smith presided. Tho (list
I ace called was the 2,18 pace. The
gray gelding Tioublu had the pole, A
cold, strong wind blew up the home

WYOMING COUNTY COURT.
Terry Murder Trial Still on List of
Special to the Scranton Tribune.
Tunkhnnnock, Oct. 10. Up nt the

Bralntrim township; George Wilsey,
Tunkhannock township; Corey Walt
erc, Mehoopnny township; Wallace
Warner, Nicholson borough; Henry
Smith, Overfleld township. The case
was opened on the part of the com
monwealth by Dlstiict Attorney O. S.
Kinner. The first witness called for
tho commonwealth was Dr. Kress, of
Mill City. He was called to attend the
murdered man on the evening of the
murder. He described his condition
when he found him and explained the
wounds. He found two cuts in his
In fast in front and one behind, nnd
a long cut on his arm. None of them
were sufficient to cause death. He did
not find any other wounds at that
time. Ho was called there again that
night nnd got there about 6 o'clock
In the morning. When he went in tho
room ho found Terry lying on a couch
and found a long cut in his abdomen,
from which the Intestines were pro
truding. Not having any facilities for
dressing such u, wound he had tho
man sent to tho Wllkes-Barro hospital.
The allegation of tho commonwealth
Is that the wound in the abdomen
was made after the doctor's first visit.
Dr. H. C. Templeton, of the Wllkes
Barre City hospital (was called to
testify to the treatment Trry re
ceived there nnd to the fact of his
death in that Institution. Charles Mc

his brother to help him. Told his
brother If ho didn't get out of tho
wagon ho would throw him out. Had
some more words and his brother got
out and went up the track to James"
houso and James got in the rig and
drove on homo. Both men had been
drinking. Afterwards, when opposite
tho house he heard further nimrrelllng,
something about some property, and
henrd James say, "If you will como
out hero I'll run this fork Into you."
Could not see the men at that time,
Dr. Bardwell, of Tunkhannock, was

nnd further said that ho was present
at tho hotel barn In Falls ono day
when James Terry and his brother
were there. They had been quarrelling
and iTntnes said he would fix him some
time. Didn't say how he would fix
him. This was about a month before
this nftalr. At this point, court ad
journed. The first witness nt the afternoon
session was Lily Gardner, who lives
with James Terry. She wbb there at
the time tho stabbing took place. She
said both men came homo Intoxicated.
That they had soma words In regard
to some property which D. Terry
owned. Thnt they got Into a quarrel
over that nnd thnt both grabbed nn
oar from a pair standlnrr against the
house and started to fight. They were
parted by Mrs. Terry and that then
thoy sepnratod, each going Into the
house. That soon after that they came
together again outside tho house nnd
D. Terry look James by the throat and
choked him. Thiy struggled for a
time, nnd then they went down, with
D. Terry on top. While they were
down, she heard James say, "Now will
you get up," and thnt then he did get
up, and she saw that James had a
knife. She didn't see the stabbing, but
saw that It had been done. D. Terry
then walked Into the house and laid
down and they sent for tho doctor.

and testified practically as Nellie Gard
ner. He saw his father stab D. Terry
while they were on tho ground. Said

black from the choking and marks of
tho fingers were left on his throat next

show by this witness that he and Nel
lie Gardner had made different state
ments In regard to this matter when
examined by tho district uttorney in
regard to it previous to the trial, but
on objection of defendant, court would
not allow it. The witness further tes
