And afterwards, thinking it all
over, I decided that Judge Scully had

BLAMES SOUTH PARK BOARD
FOR CARAVEL MESS
Batttered and partially wrecked,
the Nina and Pinta, two of the three
Columbus caravels, returned to their
moorings in Jackson Park yesterday.
The Santa Maria is now some
where in Lake Erie still on her way
to the Panama-Pacific Exposition.
She is in such a dilapitated condition
that the next storm encountered is
likely to founder her.
Charles Stephanson, a professional
Australian oarsman, put up a $10,000
bond to the South Park Board to be
allowed to take the caravels to the
San Francisco fair. They sailed away
from Chicago Labor Day, 1913, and
up to that time the school children
had conducted a pageant in Grant
Park each fall, which thousands of
Chicagoans visited and enjoyed.
"The petty economy of the South
Park Board was responsible for this
shameful happening," said Thomas
A. O'Shaughnessy, one of the com
mittee of citizens who protested
against their action. "They were
compelled to spend a few hundred
dollars each for the maintenance of
the hoats and they 'wanted to get
them off their hands. They were will
ingly hoodwinked into believing that
some millionaire patrons of some
Harvard students were going to
finance the trip and that the .boats
would be well taken care of. It was
a lack of civic pride that caused them
to sign the contract after I had per
sonally explained what sort of a
money-making scheme it was. It is
too bad that the pageant, to which
the school children looked forward
every year, has been spoiled by tins
penny-wise, foolish program,"
