Public Examiner Becomes a Candidate

Samuel Johnson announced his
candidacy and filed for the office of
city treasurer yesterday. Mr. JphnsOn
ivill be a strong candidate. is well
known and popul ar in political circles,
where he has taken an active part,
tho not as a candidate, and'he has made
a good record as public examiner.- I
fact, that office under his administra
tion has amounted to a great deal more
than it ever did before. Tliere is in the
state treasury already about $200,000,
which, he discovered, .should have been
paid in the shape of taxes by the rail
roads, but which they have' evaded
heretofore. This has been collected
without' a single suit being brought,
and suits, have been filed or probably
will be for the collection of $500,000

FAIR SfNIGHT IS BRIEF W
MOW IT GOES TO BED
Chickens Are First To Retire, "Pike" People
Last Things Seen by Day ^m^M
and by Night.
The end of one day and the beginning of the next at the fair are so close
together that the interim is insignificant. The ebb and flo^ of the tide of life
there are so well marked and so steady that the regular observer might tell what
o'clock it was by .the sense of hearing, alone..
Having arisen at 4 a.m., the state fair begins to go to bed with the chick-
ens and 6 o'clock: finds many preparations going forward for the nightly retire-
ment and rest.
N sooner have the afternoon races been finished at the grandstand than the
thousands who- care more for dinner at home or an evening in town, break for
the cars and pass in steady streams thru the gates into the street railway yards,
and thence to the cities., A the same time there come to take the place of those
departing,, other thousands.whose day has been spent in town at.work, probably,
and who are intent in spending the evening at the fair. So regular ly does the
ingress equal the egress each evening that" the total of those on the. groun ds re
mains about the same and the fair merely takes an evening.yawn and then
brakes up for. the after-dinner festivities.
The real exodus begins as soon as the great Pain pyrotechnic /spectacle
is over and -the ruins of St Pierre lie buried under tons of rockets and redflre.
Then does the multitude earnestly pour out of the grandstand and paddock, from
the hillside over by the machinery pavilion and from the various other buildings,
converging.rapidly, toward the main gate, where the exits are thrown wide open
and the loaded cars sent rolling out of the yards as fast as safety permits.
I i at, this-time that the hawkers and hucksters, the merry-go-round men
and tho man with the board covered with souvenirs redouble their efforts to
effect the valued'sale. From a .condition of comparative quiet, pandemonium
breaks loose and the fleeing visitor runs, the gauntlet of vociferous invitations
PIKE'S "OWL" SHOW.
Into this melee of assault and flight is wedged the "Pike" brass band,
tearing huge drayloads of notes out of brass and wood, alike, while the ele-

and see the pike befo re the weary heads seek the pillow.
