Every Indication of Unprecedented
Throng During the Carnival.
THE PLACES TO BE VISITED.
The Numerous Points of Interest In
and About the City and tho Best
Way in Which to Reach Them.
Amusements for the Week,
There is every Indication ?hat the crowd
Chat wi.ll gather in .Richmond to witness
She ?Street-Fair and Civic Carnival, which
opens to-morrow, will be of unprecedented
proportions. Queries as to railroad rates
and hotel accommodations, have poured
Into the headquarters of the Carnival As
efoeiatlon, while tho trailroad passenger
agents have also been flooded wi di' jetters
of this character. All the. railroad .and
steamboat lines entering the city have es?
tablished a rate of one fare for the round
trip from points in Virginia and North
'.Carolina, and if the weather be fine, the
crowd wil probably be limited only by'the
capacity of the transportation companies
to haul it to the city.
The Carnival Association 2ias five men
on the road and from them come the most
promising reports. Every town visited is
preparing ito pack up bodily end move to
?Richmond during the week of the Fair.
Colonel Murphy, ?the oldest hotel iman in
the city, says never in his long experience
has he known the demand for rooms as
great. Every .room at the hotels is either
"full or reserved, while many have been
turned away. The boarding houses, too,
are rapidly filling up and there is every
promise of the largest crowds ever seen in
?the old city, if only the> weather will keep
fine. And. why shouldn't it? It is the'
month of May, -when the sun has just re?
turned from his -winter voyage and he
shouM gladly shine upon ?Richmond in
her gala attire of flags, flowers and bunt?
Immense as the crowd promises to be,
there will be rio lack of amusement for
it. Besides the Carnival and Free Street
"Fair, there will be numerous and sundry
sido issues, such as the balloon man, shoot?
ing galleries, trained animals and all the
?many attractions that are the inevitable
accompaniment of such an occasion. Pea?
nuts and pink lemonado can be purchased
In any requisite amount or quantity, while
cat-calls, badges and Dewey medals will
be as thick as leaves in Yalambrosa.
1 The1 Bijou will be open every night dur?
ing the week, with a matinee every after?
noon, and the management has secured an
excellent bill, the feature of which is
Houdini, the famous prestidigitator.
There are many places in and around
Richmond of great interest both from their
beauty and the historical associations that
attach lo them. For the benefit of
strangers to the city. The Times publishes
some of the most important .of these with
their location and the best way to reach
Of first Importance are the attractions
in the Capitol* Square, which is about the
geographical centre of the city. Here are
the old iSta.te Capitol, tl?e d?s?lgn of which
was selected by Thomas Jefferson, and the
State Library, where there are portraits
of ,all the Governors of the. State and of
many other historical personages besides
original manuscripts of great interest. Tha
Library hours are from 9 A. M. to 3 P. M.
and it is needles? to say that many will
take advantage of this opportunity ?? see
tho sights there. In the Capitol is the
celebrated statue of Washington, by Hou
don, one of the greatest pieces of sculpture
of .the world. Under 'the shadow of the
girano old building is the magnificent
equestrian .monument of Washington,_ the
base of which is surrounded by a group of
'Revolutionary heroes and statesmen?Jef?
ferson, Marshal!, Xelson, Lewis, Page,
Mason and Patrick Henry. The statues
of Stonewall Jackson and Henry Clay also
stand among 'the beautiful trees in ithe
There arf various other monuments in
the city, all well worthy of a visit. The
So'die.rs' s?nfl Sailors' Monumcnl <">n Libhy
Hill, overlooking the James, may be reach?
ed by either the Main or Broad ?Stree
ear-lines. The view of the river from
this point is a very pretty one.
?? the. western part Of the ostv is the
equestrian monument of General Robert 15.
Lee, wh;ch may be most easily reached by
the Broad-Street line. The Howitzer
Monument, at Howitzer Place, and tne
statute of Wiekham., in Monroe Park, are
in essy access from tho Main~^ire"t cars.
Offici places of interest are the Confede?
rate Museum, which was 'the White House
of tho Confederacy, at the corner of
Twelfth and Clay Streets: .the Talentine
Museum, at Eleventh and Clay; the home
of C?hi<-i-.Tu.stJce Marshall, Xiivth .and ?Mar?
shall Streets; St. Paul's Church, Ninth and
Grace Streets, and 'the war home of Gene?
ral Lee, on Franklin, between Seventh and
Eighth Streets, now occupied by the Vir?
ginia Historical Society. All of these are
in easy walking distance of the City Hall.
Of the places outside of the city, Holly?
wood Cemetery is perhaps tho one of
greatest interest The Broad-Street Holly?
wood line runs to the very gate of this
beautiful bury'ng-plaee, which, is full of
brave and distinguished dead. Here is the
imposing pyramid erected to tiie Con?
federate dead and here, too, sleep the
Presient of the Confederacy and his la?
mented daughter. =ide by side. Two pres?
idents of the United States lie here in their
last resting place. Monroe under an iron
\mausoleum, but only ,the gr~cn turf cov?
ers the grave of John Tyler, while cross,
crucifix and monument throw their shad?
ows over the neglected spot. The quiet
city of th? dead is a beautiful spot and
visitors can spend hours of enjoyment
rambling along the shady walks. By the
sa?mi> U?e one may reach Oakwood Ceme?
tery and the Confederate Monument there.
Tak'ng tihe electric cir at First and Broad
Streets, a oretty run of seven miles will
take one to Lakeside Park, and it'is well
worth the trip. There is a very good Zoo
at Lakeside and the little ones can enjoy
?the funny-Antics of the monkeys.
Thp Spvpn-pin^s Battle-field, where there
Is a beautifully-kept Union Cemetery, may?
be reached by electric cars.
The Hill Monument is passed on. the way
to Lakes-Me. while the Stuart Monument is
not reached by car line, but is in easy
drlv'ng (5istan?e. So is is oas'-ly seen that
the visitors to the Carnival will not lack
for points of interest to visit outside of
the attractive programme arranged by the

other bands will be placed at such stands

ROOM FOR CROWDS.
Owing to the refusal of the. Council Com?
mittee on Streets to grant the Richmond
Carnival Association the right to erect a
large grand-stand on Dock Street, there
will be no place for the seating of the
crowds along this thoroughfare to witness
the launching. The Common Council grant?
ed the Richmond Carnival Association the
privilege last week to erect the grand?
stand, but it was too late for the work
to be done, as carpenters could not be se-?
cured. There will, however, be an abund?
ance of room for all who attend the launch?
ing, and it is thought that the crowd will
be even larger than the one which as?

The Bostock Company to Have Many
TRAINED ANIMALS SHOWS.
Beautiful Fairyland Floats to Form
tho Feature of the Carnival
Parade on Tuesday
The trained animal show will form one
of the principal features of the amusement
during the carnival this week.
The trained animal show is, indeed, a
feature in itself worth coming to Rich?
mond to see.
The performance of the lions, elephants
and . camels is of tiie highest order
and is most amusing. Two dogs engage
in a cake-walk, in the most approved
"coon" style, and so natural do they do
their parts that one would think them hu?
The ladies and children will greatly en?
joy riding the camels.
The street of all nations is composed of
representatives from all parts of the globo
in their native costumes. Here can be
seen Coolies, Jim Richsh?ws; Hindoo
Sheiks, Jap, Africans and Ropese Dancing
This show has always attracted large
crowds where ever put on, and will be bf
immense interest to peoplo who come
Callas Wild West Show gives exhibitions
of expert knife-throwing, lassoing, Indian
dances, riding bucking ponies, and all
attractions of the plains.
The German and Irish villages will be
true to' life and give tho public a true in?
sight into German and Irish Uie.
One of the greatest attractions is the
beautiful crystal maze, composed of G2
plate-glass mirrors 7 by S feet, and so ar?
ranged that one cannot walk straight ahead
for five feet without getting awfully mixed
up and entirely lost. The mistakes made
by those who enter the maze is .a source of
Madame Orrocco in her wonderful act
of the Closed Ball will attract much at?
tention. Imagine a human being locked in
a round ball ascending and descending a
spiral incline without assistance whatever
from the outside. So delicate is the feat
that Madame Orrocco can perceive any .un?
necessary pressure on the rojie stretched
from the incline.
The leap of Captain St. John from a
75 foot pole into a small net is one of the
most daring attempts of the kind.
The Streets of Cairo contains many at?
tractions similar to those seen at the
World's Fair at Chicago. The wild Der?
vishes dancing, sword contests, gun spin?
ning, Greek wrestlers. Ostrich Farm, Tom
Tom players and Turkish cafes.
All these shows and others put together
in one grand combination is indeed an at?
traction which will. draw thousands of
visitors to Richmond next week and
crowd the streets to their fullest caoaeits.
The Fairyland floats which are to take
part in the Mardi Gras Tuesday night are
