Counsel for the Suttons Intimated,
however, after the court's decision
had become definitely known, that
they were far from satisfied with the

take the issues involved to congress
with a view of having a full hearing
of the case by a commission of that
The verdict of the court as ap
proved by Mr.'WInthrop Is as follows:
"Lieut. Sutton Is directly and sole

persons restraining him, and. his death
was not caused by any other injury

thereon, be sent to Henry E. Davis,

INTER-STATE FAIR FOR IS09
IT MOVX CITY, IOWA, DURING
WEEK OF SEIT. 20T1I.
Many New Features Tills Year Bl
Exhibit by U. S. Government An
IgorrotP Village All Objectionable
The Seventh Annual Fair to be giv
en by the Interstate Live Stock Fair
Association, of Sioux City, Iowa, will
be held the week of September 20, at
Woodland Park, Riverside, which has
been called the most beautiful natural
fair grounds In the United States.
The officers and directors of the In
terstate Live Stock Fair Association
are men of high standing In' the busi
ness world, and It Is because of the
association of men of such character.
In this enterprise that they have been
able to make of It the largest and best
Independent fair In the country.
The week of September 20 Is the
wjek following the South Dakota state
fulr at Huron, S. D. By changing Its
dates so an not to conflict with the
South Dakota state fair, the Inter
state Association made a move, the
popularity of which can hardly be es
timated. For Instance, the South Da
kota newspapers, so long as the Inter
state Fair Association persisted In
clinging to the dates which rightly be
longed to the South Dakota fair, were
either actually antagonistic or at least
unfriendly. This year, with the Inter
state people doing the right thing, the
press of South Dakota Is more than
generous In Ita attitude towards the
big fair at Woodland. They are sim
ply glad that the Interstate Live Stock
Fair Association realised that It waa
In the wrong and got In the right path.
They are boosting the Interstate fair,
and, while loyally urging their cltlxens
to see their own fair first, they ray
then the "next best" fair to see is that
of the Interstate Live Stock Fair As
sociation at Sioux City.
The program of the seventh annual
fair Is the best la the history of the as
sociation. It 1 a well balanced pro
gram, one In which every person may
find something to enjoy. The program
indicates management will fulfill the
title Interstate Live Stock Fair for
the exhibit of live stock Includes the
blue bloods from the breeding farms
of half -, a doscn commonwealths.
While live stock and agriculture are
first In Importance, the racing and
amusement features have been given
a great deal of attention. The exhibit
of farm machinery will be the largest
tver seen at any fair in the west out
Ide of the world's expositions. Flow
ers and fruits will have a large depart
ment of their own. The Fine Arts and
Household Departments, the Pantry
and Kitchen Department, the Child
ren's Department and the Department
of Dairy Products will be unusually
The International Bee Keepers' As
sociation will hold its annual conven
tion at the fair grounds during the fair,
and this fact was largely Instrumental
In causing the board of directors of
the Fair Association to erect an
apiary building this year. Because
the convention, there will be exhlbi i
this year from Canada, Japan and
The United States government will
have an Important exhibit at the fair.
It will be made by tho department of
agriculture, and will consist of patho
logical specimens showing diseases
and Infections of live steck. Diseased
glands, diseased tissues, diseased
blood, and, in Bhort, specimens of ev
ery disease with which domestic ani
mals are afflicted, will be exhibited in
hermetically sealed containers. The
causes of these various diseases will
be explained In the talks which will
be made by experts of the depart
ment's bureau of animal Industry.
The Iowa State Agricultural college
will have an exhibit In charge of Prof.
P. G. Holden.
At a great expense and only after
numerous delays In the negotiations,
Mr. Morton has finally secured the
Bontoc Igorrote Village for the fair.
)xty Indians from the wilds of Lu
son, In the Philippine archipelago,
live In this village, which was brought:
to this country for exhibition at the
St. Louis world's fair. For the last
two years the village has been at
Dreamland Park, Coney Island, and
next month it will be transplanted to
the Seattle exposition, frgm which
place the villages will be deported,
never again to be allowed to exhibit
In the United States. On their way to
Seattle the villagers wlN be exhibited
at only two places the Minnesota
stute fair and the Interstate Fulr.
The leading band at the fulr will
be the world famous organization of
Liberatt. However, Reed's Fourth
Regiment band will play every day,
and no doubt there will be some otd
admirers who will prefer (ho popular
music of this well known local band.
For those who uttend tho fulr chief
ly to see the races, the Interstate Fall
its year will be a most Inviting place,
Tho purses are so large thut they hav
attracted owners from everywhere.
Already more stalls are engaged than
have ever been before. The alar rac

The developments continue entlreT
favorable to Increasing activity
throughout the Industries. Tha im
portant basis Is the strength derived
from the rise In new demand for
factory outputs and wider disposition
to enter Into commitments lor future
needs. Iron and steel production in
this district now cotnparee favorably
with the best previous records. Cot
Btructlon plans denote considerable ac
cumulation for railroads, manufactur
ers and mercantile houses.
The government crop report wa as
Important a factor as expected, and
Its effect has created great encourage-.
ment throughout the productive and
distributive branches. High absorp
tion of breadstutTs and provisions ! a
notable feature, but live stock roar
kets are yet without adequate sup
plies for packing.
Transportation returas enow fur

both rail and lake.

Improvement is more manifest l
general trade and industry this week
but there is still present "the feelinr
or conservatism nitnerte noted, wcicl
makes for small and frequent, rather
than heavy individual sales. Develop,
ments have been largely favorable,
chief among these the increased art
rivals of buyers in most markets, I
greater disposition to take bold foi
fall and spring delivery, a very favor
able government crop report, the con
tinuance of the marked strength Is
security markets, the growing Arm
less of the time money market
The railroad situation is improvini
and Idle cars are disappearing on th
western lines as the winter wheat
movement enlarges. Industries art
active, iron and steel leading, wlt
railroads reported buying freely ot
rails, cars and locomotives.
Collections show a little improve
ment, but as yet do not reflect the in
fluence of new crop marketing, possi
bly because of the farmers being bust
ly engaged. Building Is active and
trades catering to this line note rath
er more doing.
