"Owing to a . misunderstanding
when soliciting subscriptions for the
Woodmen picnic and river carnival a
number seem to have subscribed with
the expectation of receiving more than
the committees were able to grant,"
Siid M T. Stevens, president of the
Tenth Congressional District Picnic
association today. "An explanation
being called for, I will endeavor to
make clear the situation, viz : The
committee in charge, when stipulat

ther, that anything of an immoral

In order to make the foregoing
clear, the committee had reference to
the licensing ot street fakirs and gam

to the manner in which the licensed

such matters cculd be safely entrust

liberal subscribers to the contrary is

It now transpires that such sulncrib-

add that many liberal subscribers
