There can be only one sorrow connected
with the festivities of the 1-abor Day cele
bration ycftcrday no one by any possl
billt could have taken them all in. For
variet .f pleasures the day v'ah unique,
and it isdouUfel if cvei even Independence
Day had so many centers of interest. To
view the day as a wVolewilh the imagina
tion ot having been through it all is. joy
till it Is almost pain. Every fete singly
was a great success.
Ttie day was as perfect as ever Septehi
tcr day was; hot, but that Was what every
body wanted. No single cloud in all the
hky kept one person at home. Because of
thiR and bvcnuM' Labor Day Is now recog
nized as one of the greatest of the national
hoPdajs the crowds yesterday were phe
nomenal everywhere. Several records
were broken. A count or the estimated
crowds at the numerous places of amuse
ment ii and out of the city makes it very
clear that few people staid at home.
River View had the trades unionists,
under the auspices ol the Central Lalior
Union, and the boaUoads were crushing
all day long. At Marshall Hall the Knights
of Labor, together with the trades unionists
affiliated with the local Federation of
Labor, had their outing, with equally im
mense throngs. There was also au ex
cursion to IJuena Vista, given by the
Buuhers" and Meatcutters' Union, after
their custom for .eeral years pat. As-
all of the river resorts there were games,
athletic sports andtJelier amusements, which
went off most successfully in every in
stance. There wetgjfree gamcTracei, bar
becues and exhibitions. i"
Tiietwo ball games between the Washing
tons aud the Louisvilles were one of the
great features of the day. Thegamestbem
telves v. ere good, and both came Wilming
ton's way, which made everybody happy
but the Mirpnse and the remarkable thing
of the day was the immensity ot the crowd
which filled the arena, 12,000 people, in
cluding the ladies, and 8,000 paid ad
missions. It was the largest number of
people that h-is ever witnessed a game of
ball In Washington.
The bicycle event of the day was the
meet at International Athletic Park- It
was In every wa y successful and one of the
largest crowds that ever weut to the park

GOOD TEMPLARS' PICNIC.
OltWTnsIiioned Outing: "With
Spenldnff at Takouia Park.
The Good' Templars of Takoma Park
drank nothing but water and lemonade
yesterday at their Labor Day basket pic
nic on the grounds adjoining the big spring
of Takoma. The big spring has an es
tiinntcd ?low of over seventy gallons of
water an hour, but even this large supply
of sparkling aqua proved almost Inade
quate to quench the thirst of the throngs
who flocked to the grove.' What water
the Good Templars did not drink they
made Into lemonade, and thsre was a great
demand for lioth beverages.
There were probably 500 people In at
tendance at the Grove. A number ot
Washlngtonlans were present, among
thpm many promlu ent members ot the Antl
Snloon League and local lodges of Good
Templars. The picnic was under the au-
Bplces of the Takoma Lodge, No. 17.

The greater part ot the day was spent
in r.ld-fushloncd customs peculiar to pic
nics and gatherings ot the country folk,
butln the afternoon, bhortly after -io'clock.
Mr. Jesse C. Sutw.of the local Anti-Saloon
League, called the picnickers to order from
a platform mected in the center of the
grove. Mr. Suter made u characteristic
temperance address, and then, after an
organ voluntary," played by Miss Ethel
Mooits, be introduced Mr Howard E. Em
mons, the grand ehler templar of the Statu
or Maryland. Mr. Emmon's address wo3
largely -m temperance, although he also
touched on the significance of Labor Day
Grand Tx-mplar Doyle, of Star of Hope
Lodge, also made a speech, and then,
atter singing by the Templars, and another
organ solo by Miss Mooers, the pirnlcliers
dispersed for luncheon.
It had been expected that additional
speakers from Washington would. be In
attendance, but as tl.ey failed to show up,
it was tt.ousht best ti let the crowd enjoy
iteir in the good old fj.shioned way, In
stead of attempting to fill the places of
the absent. Superintendent of Juvenile
Templars F.usse!), Mrs. B. R. Bishop, Mr.
A. T. Maupln, Mr. L. II. Patterson, and
Mr. I.. M Mooers, and other populir Tem
plars, were present during the speaking.
The picnic was under the direction of ;i
committee from Takoma Lodge, composed
of Ginnd Teinplarh E. H. Warren, Holton.
and Byron G. Ford. It was voted a great
success by all who attended, and It wuh
not until late In the evening that the last

fact that the man's legs merely hung by
chreds or riesh an amputation was act per
formed, and yesterday morning he died.
It is the duty of the physiciaus in the
District to report all deaths Jueto acci

done. Dr. Ncsbitt, the cluef resident phy

last night gave as Wt excuse that the man
was not a lestdent of Washington and that
be did not know whether or not the mau
was hurt luwde the District. On his own
responsibility, it Is said, Dr. Nesbltt had
issued a ceuificate oi death and had given

"Certainly every death due to accident
when the person dies In Washington
should be reported to the coroner," said
Dr. Carr to a Times reporter last night.
"If the circumstances are clear the cor

but every case should be reported and the
fact there is sometimes neglect In this mat

the average doctor attributes it all to indi

fourths of the ills from which women suf

ment of the child-bearing organism. If a
woman sees to it that she is always healthy
ind strong in a womanly way, she is nearly
tmre to always enjoy good general health.
There are tens of thousands of women in
this country who owe their health, both
local and general, to one marvelous remedy,
and thousands of them have testified to this
fact in writing. That remedy is Dr. Pierce's
Favorite Prescription. It is the discovery
of an eminent and skillful specialist, Dr.
R. V. Pierce, for thirty years chief consult

Surgical Institute, qt Buffalo, N. Y. The
"Favorite Prescription '' acts directly upon
the delicate and important organs that bear
the burdens of maternity. It gives them
strength, vigor and elasticity. It cures all
weakness and disease. It allays inflamma

tones up the tired nerves. It fits for moth

Wm. Wheeler Pleads Guilty to
the Charge of Polygamy.
HELD FOR TUB GRAND JURY
Colored "Walter Married Three

His Duplicity "When Con
fronted by the Trio in Court
MurrliiRe Certificates In Evidence.
William Wheeler pleaded guilty yerter
day In police court, when the charge of
bfgasny wasread to him, and was held under
S1.000 'jalUby judge Kimball to' await
tbu action ot.the, grand Jury.1
"Mont men are satisfied with the single
wife allowed by law, but Wbeeler'e bent
Is particularly toward mairiage, and Tor
the past two years he has averaged a new
wife for every eight months.
The t-elt-ronfcssed -polygamlst is only
thlrty-jne years old. He Is a r.Ke-Iooking
young mulatto, and tor nunc time has been
employed as waiter at Dietz's saloon,
corner or Seventh ami F streets northwest.
In 1890 "Wl-eeler met, wooed, and married
his first wire, llary M. Wheeler. She
is a comely woman, and according to her
Kory, while his aftectlcn lasted, his con
duct was most loving and considerate.
Boon, however, he began to neglect her
and In less than a year after his marriage
de.ierted her completely.
It was during this interval that Wheeler
met the woman who was destined to be
come wife No. 2. She was Louisa White,
who lived on New Jersey avenue. In 1S0G
Rev. C. 0. Mason united the two, and a
most contented existence followed. This
spring Wheeler began to tire of So. 2,
and began to pay his attentions toltosa
Smith. Itosa is a Virginia girl, and lived
on Tl strict northwest. Wheeler's winning
ways overcame her, and last June she
consented to marry him Rev. George W.
XiW tied the hymeneal knot on this occasion,
and Wheeler devoted all his time and at
tention to No. 3, to the utter neglect of
No. 1, although he still continued tb pay
attention to his New Jersey avenue wife.
I'ut No. 1, in the meanwhile, was not
batlstted with being cast off so summarily,
and a few inquiries-satisfied her that an
other woman had usurped her place. She
Indulged In no display of jealousy, but
very sensibly concluded that she was bet
ter off without such a husband and de
termlned to ask Richard to return to her
a considerable amount ot valuables which
he held belomdug to her aud let him go
when he pleased. When she called at
Dietz's he refused to comply with her de
mands, ilary M. Wheeler then 'adopted
very different tactics. She went to the
Eec-ond Mrb. Wheeler and told her that
she was the original wife, which asser
tion, it is said, the latter repelled with
some asperity, declaring that she believed
her husband to be true and faithful. See
ing no other course open to her, the firct
wife went to detective headquarters and
aszed for a warrant.
Detective Joseph Carter was assigned to
the case, and airested the polygamist
Saturdav night. He denied the charge, but
ugreed to accompany the officer to head
quarters, and -was afterwards locked up
for the night In the Sixth precinct statlon
houpe. Yesterday, In police court, with three
-wived, three ministers, and three marriage
certificates as evidence against him
Wheeler realized that denial tv.ih futile aud
entered a plea of guilty. Bond was accord

The maximum sentence for this offense is
four years, and as there are two Indignant
wives to deal with the chances are that
there ih an eigby ear term staring Wheeler
