FROM the Mare-mouthed trumpet
there came a brazen, impudent
shriek, and the third night o?
Richmond's -rreatest Horse Show
had begun. It developed into
one of thrills, accidents and mo?
mentary consternation in the Corinthian
class of hunters and jumpers, which closed
the show. Mr. Robert Tritton had a nar?
row escape from serious injury under
Squirt?, a hunter and jumper, "who fell
at tlio last jump and rolled over Mr.
Tritton, who was up; Mrs. J. M. Allen,
on Princess, was unseated at the last
jump, and thrown forward on her horse's
nook, being vociferously applauded when
she was assisted back into the saddle;

From the upper tier of scats

building was jammed?six or seven

Beautiful Women Who
The third evening of the Horse Show
i evidenced an increase of enthusiasm and,
| if posible, an increase of numbers. A
?sensible point of difference presented in
tlie inter.or was the number of flowers
carried by the box occupants. American
beauties made vivid spots of color in
many boxes and lent an air of refine?
ment and distinction which only flowers
.n the hands o? pretty women can im?
part. Violets lent their sweetness to
box interiors aiso and in a few in?
stances were worn as corsage bouquets.
Some orchids were s?2en, but the roses
were the lavoritcs and struck the color
lone for the evening.
The audience was very lively, the hum
of conversation was "interrupted by rip?
ples of laughter and bursts of merriment
proved infectious in the boxes. Every?
thing was annimated, bright and re?
sponsive. The women conscious of look?
ing their best, sat at ease in their box
chairs and held their little courts around
There was a good deal of visiting go
?::t; on among friends in. the boxes. Peo?
ple passed to and fro, here and there
and paused to exchange greetings with
each and to receive introductions to out- '
of-town box guests. The prevalence of ;
pinks. blues and violets among the]
toilets worn broke the standing monot- ;
any of white and lent a brilliancy to the :
appearance of the house which it has
hitherto lacked. While still held its :
own weil, however. Miss Mary Ashley ?

WELLS ?O ENTER
With Fawcett He Will Build and
Operate a Down-Town
(Special Dispatch to The Timos.)
BALTIMORE, MD.. October P'.-Georgc
Fawcett, manager of the stock company
at Chase's Theatre, announced to-nignt
that next season his stock company win
dedicate and occupy permanently a new
downtown theatre in Baltimore, .in the
heart of the shopping district. This new
theatre will be erected jointly by Mr.
Fawcett and Jake Wells, who already
has a circuit of four theatres in the
South, reaching from Norfolk and Rich?
mond to Birmingham ami Atlanta.
The plans for the new theatre in this
city have been under consideration for
more than two weeks. An option upon
a plot of ground 70 by lt>3 feet has been
secured, while a second plot not quite so
wide has also been off?reu. The first site,
which most likely will be selected, is
within one block of the corner of Fay?
ette and Eutaw Streets. Mr. Wells will
come to Baltimore in a few days to settle
the site question.
The funds for the new theatre will be
supplied by Mr. Wells and Mr. Fawcett
jointly, and Mr. Fawcett, in addition, will
I manage the stock company which will be
located in the theatre. It is expected
i that next year, instead of having two
companies alternately appearing in Bal?
timore, Mr. Fawcett will have three com?
panies, and that in addition Mr. Wells
will personally supply a fourth company.
Mr. Wells left last night for Atlanta:
and Mr. McKee, his* partner, when seen,
declined to discuss the matt?>r. and would
neither affirm nor deny the report.
"I was unalterably opposed to? the i
acceptance of or acquiescence in the ?
form of settlement proposed by the !
J coal operators, because it restricted j
' the Fresident of the United States? in i
? making selection of the men who j
[ would determine the questions in- j
| volved in the coal strike. These re- j
| fetrictions having been removed and j
" representation given to organized la- J
bor, as well as to organized capital, ?
I am now prepared to give my per- j
?onal approval to a settlement of the i
issues involved in this strike by the ?
commission selected by the President, j
and shall recommend to the: executive !
officers of Districts 1, 7 and 9 in their j
meeting to-day that an immediate call ';
be issued for a convention permit." )
Young Husband Shoots Wife's j
Parents and Eighteen
(By Associated Press.)
MOUNT PLEASANT. MICH., October
16.?As the bloody sequel of a divorce suit,
Archie Woo<!irt, twenty-three years old,
is under arrest here, charged with a tri?
plo murder, and this community was
shocked to-day by a bloody tragedy. In
which Mrs. Woodin's parents and the pris?
oner's eighteen-months' old daughter
were shot and killed. Woodin was over?
powered just as he had turned the re?
volver upon himself and had. inflicted
a wound that is not expected
to prove fa.tal. He visited the
courthouse this morning about 9 o'clock
and looked over the papers in a suit for
divorce which his wife instituted Octo?
ber 10. From there he went directly to
Isbell's hardware store, where hu i>ur
chased a revolver.
There was m> interruption in his career

the rust victims. Mr. Guack was shot
twice?once above the heart, and once
in the right side?aud was instantly
killed. Woudin then turned upon his
mother-in-law, who was sitting in a
rocking ci.air, and shot her in the throat.
?She ran. into the kitchen ahd teil upon her

States, and It is reasonably certain that
the advice will be followed and the great
struggle brought to a close. The con?
vention will be convened in this city Mon?
day morning, and it is the hope and tha
belief of tho otlicers of the union that tho
mining of eoal will be resumed before tha
close of next week, after a suspension
of more than five months. The citizen?
of the entire region are much elated tlrac
the strike id almost over, because busi?
ness in th?: coal fields has been practically
paralyzed since the strike began.
From the time tho newt? was recievect
late last night until about in o'clock this,
morning there was some doubt as to no-v
the miners would receive the modified
plan. ? President Mitchell was asked to
make some expression on the proposition,,
but he steadfastly refused. lie was
pressed by the cor-reSpontlents for a state?

that Mr. Mitchell was wilting to accept

there? was no doubt that the strik?? would
be brougat to a speedy close. It was not
until 'Z o'colck that the thirty-seven mem?
bers of the three district boards -ver?3
called into session, which lasted two
hours and fifteen minutes. There was
some opposition manifested in the meet?
ing against certain features of th? plan,
but after a full discussion of the objec?

taken to recommend to the convention tho
acceptance of the-, proposition. As the

and a bond of secrecy was placed on
every man present, the spe<?itie objections

the s'ime executive boards which, on
