second one to-day. : There will be nine
performances during the months of July

The play opens with a chorus reciting
how the world emerged from chaos, ac

of scenic transparencies illustrating the
days occupied in the creation. These are
followed by a series of tableaux showing
Adam and Eve in the ; garden, the sacrihce

resulted in a partial recovery of the former.
The threatening aspect , of ' the: weather
militated greatly against ' the attendance
in the .morning , and early afternoon, but
when things atmospherically looked set
tled the crowd commenced to arrive and
fully 8000 people were' scattered through
the park. .... ° .',
The ' Schuetzens were fortunate in their
selection of a locality for their' celebration.
Gleridale ' Park is ; about '. twenty ; minutes'
ride from Long Island City and is a place
of great natural beauty, with an : area of
about thirty acres. It contains a large
dancing pavilion, bowling alleys, restau
rants, bars .'and many other facilities for
comfort arid. amusement. The scene to-
I day 'exhibited an' animated j appearance, all

thronged the sides of the pavilion, specu
; la ting ; over ' the :. individual * value', of \ the
gifts, which in the aggregate amount to
between $50,000 arid $60,000, and grew rap
turous over the splendid display, ; which
ranged • from $1000 cups arid- services of
solid silver down to medals of gold and

The promoters have been for some years
arranging for this mammoth festival. The
forty-five rifle ranges, 200 yards long, after
a careful and critical examination were
pronounced by experts to be perfect and
are highly commended by the sharp
shooters. Every detail has been attended
to ?o as to make the best possible records,
each of the targets having been put to a
severe test, and the general verdict i» that
they cannot be improved upon.
In addition to the shooting there are in
dividual and team bowling contests, the
prizes for which will be very big. The
first series of bowling for such prizes took
place 10-day. open to all comers. During
every day of the festival there will be a
banquet between 1 and 2p. m. The shoot
ing contests will be continued from 8 a. m.
to 7 p. m. There will be concerts and
dancing during the afternoon and an in
teresting programme of general amuse
ments. In the evening stereopticon views
and fireworks will be exhibited.
To-morrow the Schuetzenfest will be
formally opened, to-day's shooting being
for general prizes open to all comers. The
parade starts at 9 o'clock, and will be par
ticipated in by all the local and visiting
rifle clubs and the German veteran soldiers,
the Turners and singing societies
of New York, Brooklyn and New
Jersey and many of the Volksfest
organizations. The parade will form
at the Schuetzen Hall on St. Marks place,
proceeding via Broadway, Union Square
and Fifth avenue to Thirty-fourth-street
ferry, and the Long Island Railroad to
Glendale Park. At Union Square, Gov
ernor Morton, Mayor Strong and othqr
honornry members of the society will re
view the parade.
Although the shooting to-day was more
in the nature of a skirmish, the real battle
taking place tomorrow, there was good
work done, and in some instances excel
lent scores were made. No association or
targets of honor were used to-day, only
those open to all comers, namely, the
point, standard, ring and man targets.
The former has a black of twelve inches
in diameter, divided into three yurds, the
inner bullseye circle being three inches in
diameter and counts three points. The
next is a circle of six inches in diameter
and counts two points. The balance of the
clock counts one point. As each ticket en
titles the holder to ten shots the highest
possible score on this target is 30.
The American standard has a black of
11 inches diameter. The bullseye, or inner
ring, counts 10, the next 9, 8, 7 and 6 re
spectively. As each ticket entitles the
holder to five shots the maximum score
The public ring target is divided into 25
ring*, three-fourths of an inch apart, the
black being 12 inches in diameter and
containing rings 18 to 25.
The balance of the target, which is white,
contains rings 1 to 17. Cards for this target
call for three shots, which make the high
est possible score 75.
The New York Marksmen, Independent
Elite German-American Schuetzen Corps,
the City Schuetzen, the Zetters and others
were well represented.
The St. Louis Independent Schnetzen
did not try very hard, as one of them said
there is plenty of time yet. Riflemen from
the vicinity of this city were very in
dustrious. Gebhard Krauss of the
Brooklyn Schuetzen Gezellschaft dis
tinguished himself by winning the first
gold medal. Staten Island was repre
sented by Helbi, Neies and Seidel, three
marksmen who should be heard from later
The palm, however was borne off by the
Columbia Rifle Company of San Francisco.
Blodan set a runaway pace with the fol
lowing tine score: 46 on the standard
(highest possible 50), and 70 on the ring
target (highest possible 75.)
He was followed by his clubmate
Strecker. the victor at the recent shooting
tonrnament at Milwalkee, who is not only
considered the champion of the Pacific
Slope, but the best shot in the world. The
crack upheld his high reputation.
He tied Blodan's 46 on the standard, he
surpassed him on the ring by scoring 73
out of a possible 75, and he duplicated his
record-breaking feat at Milwaukee by
again scoring 97 on the man target. His
single shots at the latter were two 20's and
Gus Zimmerman, the New York crack,
was in fine form. He shot thrice 46 on the
standard, thrice 71, and once 70 on the
ring, an excellent showing.

shooter were awarded to Gebhard, Krauss,

Suit to Be Filed for Val

CLAIMED UNDER GRANTS.
The Heirs of Louis Denoy
Are the Prospective
RECENT FINDING OF A WILL.
The Contest to Be Based On It and
Documents Found at the
ST. LOUIS, Mo., June 30.— Attorney
Harrison K. Bunce has prepared papers
and will shortly commence a suit to re
cover title to property valued at several
million dollars, including two-thirds of the
ground now occupied by Shaw's Gardens,
eight sections of land lying south of the
garden and extending through Tower
Grove Park, and twelve sections compris
ing nearly half of Franklin County.
The prospective litigants are the heirs of
Louis Denoy, one of the pioneer settlers in
the Mississippi Valley. They claim- a
clear title to the property through Spanish
and French grants. In addition to this
they claim to have leases to several blocks
from Broadway to the river, and from
Kansas to Krauss street. On this prop
erty mills, factories and residences have
been built, until it now comprises one of
the best parts of South St. Louis. Louis
Denoy leased the land from the grantee in
1820 for ninety-nine years at a monthly
rental of $1, which was paid up to 1850.
The heirs claim to have a clear title, and
are arranging to prove title, pay ap th
rental and take possession of the property.
As yet they have been unable to learn who
owns the ground and executed the lease.
Being faded with age, the name cannot be
made out in the papers, and for over forty
years there has been no claimant for the
rental. Nothing has been found in the
records to indicate who the owner was. If
he died without an heir, the Denoy heirs
declare the property will revert to them
under the lease.
The householders and those who have
built mills and factories on the land and
hcl d undisputed possession for years be
lieve they have a title to it, and will fight
every step made by the claimants.
There are nine living heirs to the Denoy
estate. Very recently the will of Louis
D enoy and papers substantiating the
Franklin County title have been discov
ered, and upon these the claitrt w : li be

unusual noise in a barber-shop next to the
saloon. Hydock went to investigate and
saw Taylor running away with a mirror.
He tired twice at the negro, the second
shot taking effect in the back of the head.
Hydock gave himself up to the police and

whose object apparently was robbery.
