THE LESSONS OF A BIG SHOW.
The Burlington Gazette, speak
ing editorially of the great liarnum
Bailey show on the occasion of its
recent visit to that city, pays this
well deserved tribute to Mr. Bailey:
The Barnum show is the greatest
of all lesions in evolution, and
James A. Bailey, its energetic and
tireless manager and proprietor. Is
an example of what determination
and constancy of purpose can ac
complish. No amusement enter
prise on the globe has ever reach
ed such mammoth proportions as
this magnificent exhibit. Never
has money been bo lavished, nor
skill, brain and experience so lev
ied upon as is displayed in the dif
ferent exhibits that will be wit

world over. And no boy ever lound
a more worthy lesson in success
than JanftBS A. Bailey, the moving
spirit and director of this gigantic
enterprise. There Is not a youth in
Burlington, of ordinary physical
health, who has not the same
chances thai he took advantage of.
No silver spoon attachment mark
ed his birth. Every dollar that he
is worth was the efforts of his
own hands and his own brains. He
set his mind upon having the great
est show in the world, and no man
disputes the statement that his
aim has been achieved. He is a
remarkable man Quiet, unassum
ing and modest, few people would
pick him out as the head of so
vast an establishenL N" business
man ever enjoyed better reputation
for business integrity; no philan
thropist can show a longer or bet
ter list of deserving acts of char

followers: and no man can say
aught against the clean, moral, up

James K Bailey. What fond metnor
ies the mention of the name of Bar

everything that tickles the senses and
pleases the eye. It stands for fan
of the good old-fashioned kind, when
you used to follow the parade until
your fee grew so tired that you could
fall asleep on the curb if you wen
not afraid of missing something that

at the circus. Now you are a big
man, with a moustache, and you have
got two little fellows who expect you
to take them this evening. You will
be there, not for the children's sake
alone, but you want to see the show
yourself. So does Lizzie. She is your
First Visit in Seven Years.
There have been shows by the
thousand, big and little ones. They
all have striven to be Barnums. They
are to be commended for this. But
time has proven that there can be
only one Barnum and only one Bailey.
They stand distinctly alone in the dis
semination of this class of amusement.
They nave an enterprise that has nev
er been approached. This is no idle
boast. It is fact. They come offer
ing the greatest show on earth. And
they have got the show. There is no
btunbuggery. They have everything
they advertise. You know they have,
because you have been there before.
It used to be said that Barnum uttered
the statement that the American peo
ple loved to bo fooled. I'ndoubtedly
i hey do. But if he did say this he
knew also that the American people de
manded a fair return for their money.
He has given it to them from the day
he entered the business. They are re
ceiving it and a little added in the
circus that is offered here today. It
has not been here before in seven
years. Five years were spent abroad.
The edd world was awed by the magni
tude of this traveling organization.

possible to move from one town to an
other, day after day. such an institu
Performers Well Cared For.
The show grounds are at Eighteenth
avenue and Ninth street. It is a veritable-
c ity. Thousands of people were
there yesterday to see how a big cir
cus puts in Sunday.
One hundred and fifty performers
and officials of the show put up at the
local hotels during yesterday. The
remainder of the army were at the
grounds. They are an intelligent,
clean appearing crowd of people.
They are religious, and many of them
were present at the services in the
Roch Island c hurc hes. Every possible
detail is looked alter in caring for
the comfort of the performers. They
have the best of edibles, their sleep
ing quarters are finely appointed, in
fact their life is made as pleasant as
if they were stopping in a first-class
An evidence of the enterprise of the
Barnum V- Bailey management is
shown in the providing of a press
tent at the grounds. This is for the
newspaper nun. It is not a play for
favor. It la simply an accommodation
that the circus knows is needful.
There are stenographers on hand, and
if a newspaper man happens to have
something that he wishes to write up
while waiting for the performance to
begin, or after the show in over, the
stenographers are at his command. If
he happens to want to write a story
about the circus, nil well and good. It
is up to him The press tent is for
Allen Still Heads The Show.
Whiting Allen is still the press rep
resentatlve tor the Barnum vV Bailey
show. It would not. seem like show
day for the newspaper offices if Allen
did not blow in. He has been with
Barnum &. Bailey a great many years.
He made Europe with them, and hob
nobbed with royalty. Allen is not only
a clever in wspaper man. He is a
diplomat. He should be in the service
of his country. It is not right that
one of his rare capacity should be al
lowed to run loose over the country
ahead of a circus. But then Barnum
& Bailey are after the best in all
lines. That is the reason someone
else has not corralled Allen.
The parade this morning at 10
o'clock was the most gorgeous ever
seen here. It seemed as if the whole
population of the three cities and the
country towns surrounding was gath
ered in the streets along which the
parade passed. It came on Twelfth
street, moved cast on Fourth avenue
:o Twentieth, north to Second avenue,
west to Ninth and south to the
grounds. Tin- evening performance
begins at fc. The doors are open at 7.

Big Negro Police Arrive in
Time to Stoo Row.
What promised to terminate in a
bloody riot last night between Rock
Islanders and showmen, half of whom
are colored, who are with Barnum &
Bailey's circus, was averted by the
tinn-Iy arrival of policemen. The fra
cas took place on Ninth street, be
tween Tenth and Eleventh avenues.
The- cause is unknown to outsiders,
but from allegations, it would
seem that Ikmizo was the instigator.
Both sides had just emerged from a
saloon. Brick bats, stones, sticks, and
other missiles of all sizes, weights and
proportions were employed.
Finally a load groan from one of the
showmen was heard and it was known
ihat one of the Rock islanders had
made good his aim. A burly negro who
was with the show contingent picked
up his fallen comrade, placed loin mi
bis shoulder and started for the tent
ed city with him.
"I paid one of the sucker back,
anyhow, and he will have a bump cm
his head bigger than a cabbage h-ad
before morning." the crack marksman
was heard to say. By this time the
policemen arrived and found that the
I bowmen had all made a hasty retreat,
but the Rock Islanders were still an
iry and unable to sec- straight, for
they were seen to throw rocks at each
other, thinking that they were throw
ing at the showmen. The men were
warned to desist, and thev obeyed.
