Yesterday's Adventure Xot a Sac
Aeronaut aid Hake a Berklraa
r.arhmi Jbeap Xr the Watch
Tower and 1 Injured.
The balloon afcensioir .and parachute
leao by Prcf. R. Gould near the
Wcl Tower yesterday afternoon was
n it a success, but it was not the fault of
the daring aeronaut that such was the
case. '. The elements were unfavorable to
ttte ascension until late in the aftercooD,
owing lo the stiff prevailing wind. Tbe
balloon was inflated on Vandruff's Island
by 8. A. Baldwin, the Qaincy aeronaut,
and Mr. Gould,' and when all was ready
to start the trench by means of which
the hot air was v injected into the balloon,
caved, and in consequence of which it
was necessary to inflate it again . An ascent
was msde at 6:30 but the balloon rose but
200 feet,wben'it began to settle. Prof.
Gould realized that tbe ascension
wig bound to prove a -failure and
instead of staying with the balloon and
d-scending with it, he immediately cut
loose, grasped his parachute and leaped.
He shot downward like a 9 Mb, tbe par
achute failing to open until within 60
feet of tbe ground, and then it only par
tivly spread. The aeronaut landed in
some shrubbery and on the ground not
frfrom where he started. His right
lez was badly sprained, and it ia a won
der be was not killed, and would have
been had the parachute failel to open at
all. He took a big risk in leaping, when
such a short distance up, but he preferred
to make the fool-hardy attempt than to
disappoint tbe peop'e. He will make
another ascentnn at Schuetzea park two
week's fiom yesterday, wlen he will have
a new balloon.
STREET CAR MEN' STRIKE.
Twin ' Hvf Trackman $nlt Wr!i
Mot mi;n and t'anductorn Orjjn
ir.ins Twenty-five trackmen engaged in plac
ing the double truck to grade on Twenty
third between Fourth and Fifth avenaes,
quit s-'-irk rther abruptly at 4 o'clock
SaturJa. afternoon, leaving the trick
partly on stilts and di'chtng the first
moKr cir tout pi3$ed over it afterward.
The men bad ju9t rtceivtd their pHyand
lit strike wi8 ice culmination of Ions
pent up fet-lings that tue Davenport &
Rjck I;aai railway company was not
tre tting them fairly in the matter of
traosp rttion. The men were perfectly
satisce l with their wage9 $1 50 a day
but tnt-y thought the company should
give thttn at least a half rate fare io
U'Oitig to and from wora, instead of charg
inj tbe fall fare. The company refused
to do this, iad hence the strike. The
places of tbe men were all filled this
o or am z, Eome of the strikers haying re
turned to work.
The inotormen and conductors on all
the syndicate lines nave been complain
ing for sometime about the long hours
they are oDliged to work, which with tbe
increased responsibilities make their posi
tions much more trying than driving
horse cars. The car men have no "kick
coming" on the question of py, as they
are getting $43 per month, tbe amount
which the syndicate has paid since taking
possession of the system and which is
1 3 more than the old companies paid.
But the men hold that they cannot stand
the lcng hours, some of the runs being 15
and 16 hours a day, and eyen more oc
casionally where there are extras.
In Davenport tbe motormen and con
ductors are reported to be organized, and
a mot:rman from that side was over here
thii morning talking to the men here. It
is rumored that tbe. men propose to de
mand shorter hours, and some have gone
so far as to talk strike. It has been re
ported that this might occur at anytime,
but it is hardly likely, as the men would
be apt to give the company notice first.
The men would be satisfied with 14 hours
runs, and a few more men would insure
it. It is to be hoped the company will
muke these concessions, as they are cer
tainly not unreasonable.

Nature may make the seasons, but no
body known that spring has really come
until Forepaugn's show burts like a but
terfly from its winter chrysalis Toe
opening of the great show is as much a
part of spring as the budding of tbe trees,
or tbe milliners' and dressmakers' t dis
play, and no true citizen has testified bis
appreciation of life until be baa helped
to swell tue concourse at ine great parade
and make one ot the throng at tbe per
formances. To praise tbe institution so well Known
seems like painting the lily or perfuming
ir.e rose, but toe snow this season will be
far in advance of anything ; heretofore
seen io ibis or any .other city.
Dashing' barebacked riders ' sdeb as tbe
Reed sisters, sucti wonderful gymnasts as
the Hanlon-Voiiers, Colonel Boon and
Miss C&rloita with their seven trained
lions and the boirhound Saxon, Sioux
Indians in the Ghost Dance, herds of
tdueated elephants, a group of tbe fuo
nies of clowns, chariot races that bring
Ben Hur to mind, cowboy riders, a mag
nificent array of splendid norses, aid a
thousand and one vividly interesting
things and scenes will combine to nuke
tbe F .repaugb Shows of ' this season
sometbma to be reoanrkibie for a life
time. There is a balo of slory about
the very name of Adam Foreaugh that
brings to miad the wonders of toe past
in circus an l menagerie. The splendors
of the shows are traditional, and if this
year's was only to be a repetition r f thos6
that bve gone before it would be
well worth anticipating. But going
beyond it, as it does ii will be
a matter of regret' with every
bodv who fails to make a visit to it a
part of bis existance.
Apparently nothing in the animal king
dom is without n representative.
In ttie menagerie the performances
nothing achiev, tile in startling and ad
miraule physical feats but will have dem
onstrtiou. An idea of the magnitude of the great
show my be got lrom the fact that to
put i- hefur ttie people requires 1.200
employes, 2KJ performers, 4UO horses,
200 rare aniuotils. and for its transporta
tion it requires four trains of 51 speci-,1
cms, invoivinir a cnoital of 3,000.000
and a dii y c-xpetiditure of $5,500.
