VOLUME EIGHT. NUMBER 82
Rough Riders Here.
Every Nation of Civilized
More Than 600 People
Are With Show.
Street Parade Largest
Given in Akron.
Bivouac Scene at San
Buffalo Bill's wild west show and
congress of Rough Ridels of the
world, arrived at Akron early Tues
day morning, and shortly afterwards
had the show auditorium, living
tents and stable tents all arranged
on the grounds, the property of Po
liceman Fred Baker, on Thornton st.
With the show are more than GOO
people, among which are represented
every nationality of the civilized
world. There are also over 5IX) head
of fine horses. Among the Indians
of the show are sonic exceptionally
fine specimen!: of the Sioux race.
The street parade occurred at 10
o'clock Tuesday morning. It wa
the largest parade ever placed on the
streets of Akron, being much larger
than the paiadc given by Buffalo
Bill's show when it was here several
years ago. The line of parade was
from the show- grounds to Main St.,
north on Main to Howard, continu
ing on Howard to Market, east on
Market to Main, south on Main to
Thornton and then to the show
Buffalo Bill himself, driving a pair
of beautiful white horses in a phae
ton carriage, headed the procession.
In the parade were three brass bands,
including the famous cow-boy band,
whose members play their instru
ments while riding on horses.
The parade wa interesting, as well
as dazzling in its effects. In it rode
Porto Ricans, Filipinos, Cubans,
Indians, Cowboys, German, English
French and American cavalry,
Cossacks, Arabs, Gauchos, Mexi
cans. Ja number of Roosevelt's
Rough Rideis and other
troops. Each brigade had a leader
who rode ahead of the others and
carried the colors of the nation rep
resented in the following.
The streets were lined with people
all along the line of the parade. A
large crowd of out-of-town people
are in the city attending the show.
The show was well attended this
afternoon. The big auditorium was
cool and pleasant, and excellent pro
vision was made for the comfort of
the visitors in the way of an abund
ant supply of ice-cold drinks of
In every detail was the show
pleasing and satisfactory. Every
thing connected with it might well
be described as a feature of merit.
The feats of horsemanship, fast rid
ing, markmanship, show battles and
fights with the Indians all possessed
thrilling pleasure to the spectators.
Buffalo Bill is. this year priding
himself in his late masterpiece en
titled "The Charge of San Juan Hill,"
This is made as nearly realistic as it
is possible. The management has
spared neither tiino or expense to
make this the greatest effort of its
history and has gone so far as to en
gage a detachment of Roosevelt's
Rough Riders who were participants
n this heroic event.
The famous bivouac scene, which
is shown at night, is grand and
abounds with realism. It shows the
Rough Riders in camp the night be
fore the famous charge. As night

afternoon and tonight Probably

This evenings how begin at b.
Wadsworth'.s delegation in at
tendance upon Buffalo Bill's show if
composed of 100 persons. At least
that many tickets were sold at the
Erie station at Wadsworth. Then it
is but natural to suppose that a
large number of others came to the
city in carriages and other convey
ances, while many walked.

Placed In Iron Cage at Penitentiary
A fresh coat of green paint was put
on the door to the iron cage painted
white which has been built at the
end of the east hall in the peniten
tiary for the "quartet of prison de
mons" and is the last bit of work to
be done there before the four are
placed in it.
The cage is more than 11 feet
square and is nearly 12 feet high. It
encloses live cells, and is covered
with a heavy iron ceiling.
As soon as the wire screen is fin
ished, to cover the cage front, the
cage will be so fixed as to prohibit
any one from slipping the smallest
thing in through for the prisoners.
The cage runs up above the second
range of cells, but is entirely cut off
from any access fiom the feecond

The floor is the hard stone one,
while the north and east walls are
the heavy black and stone walls of
the pen. On the whole the cage for

Hurley, Marlatt, Atkinson and

Of Death Dealing Gatling Gun Ef
The combined roar of all the ani
mals in the Zoological Garden would
make a terrifying sound, but would
scarcely cause such a feeling of fear
as the indescribable rolling, snap
ping, thundering noise made by a
gatling gun worked by expert artil
lerymen. We have all read descrip
tions of this terrible death-dealing
instrument of war, but no conception
can be had of it until we have heard
it for ourselves. In the battle of San
Juan Hill, as presented by Buffalo
Bill's Wild West company, the gat
ling gun plays a most important part
and its effectiveness as a flghtin
machine is so clearly demonstrated
as to raise up in the minds of the
auditors the largest si.ed and most
