BIG SHOW SECURED
Parker's Aggregation Will Be
Here During Fair.
OVER 20 ATTRACTIONS
Are in This One Great Com
Parker's Combined Shows have been
secured for the fair this fall. This show
lias twenty-two large carnival attrac
tions and Is the biggest and most varied
aggregation of its kind in the country,
IA.11 of the shows are new and up-to-date,
and with Parker's Consolidated Shows as
"a nucleus Wichita is assured of having
the best carnival attractions that will be
seen in the west this fall.
H. L. Resing, secretary of the South
ern Kansas Fair and Carnival associa
tion, received a telegram yesterday from
DBeardstown, 111., from C. II. Irwin, stat
ing that he had secured Parker's shows
end several other excellent attractions
lor the fair. The Parker shows consist of
fifteen shows and seven excellent free at
Iractlons. There are few carnival at
tractions that are not represented in
these shows and each is claimed to be
the best in its respective class. The
fchows embrace so extensive a field that
all tastes can be satisfied. There are
electrical palaces, loop the loop, the am
phitheater, midget merry-go-round and
Ferris wheel, day in the Alps, statue turn
ing to life, optical illusions, laughing pal
ace, slide for life, plantation home, up-to-'date
Josh Billings, and several other fine
Mr. Irwin visited and inspected per
sonally all the separate departments of
these mammoth shows and says that be
yond a doubt Parkers have the finest line
of clean carnival attractions that can be
obtained anywhere. It will cost the fair
..association quite a neat little sum to
get these attractions here, but Mr. Irwin
"felt fortunate in securing them at any
price as he is confident that they will
make a great hit with those who attend
the fair here this fall.
The Parkers own their own electric
light plant. One may see how large their
"ehows aro when he takes into consider
ation the fact that it requires twenty
'. 0-foot cars to move them. All of these
cars are owned by the shows.
' All of the shows are combined in one
large open tent, which will be located on
AVator street on. the vacant lots where
he old hay market was located. The
separate attractions are given in smaller
tents, each of which has a large hand
carved and decorated front which is said
to be very beautiful. The large open
court, thronged with fun seeking people,
the artistic wooden fronts glistening in
the electric lights, the criers and the
twenty-two shows, seven of which are
free, all going on in full blast at one
time, are said to combine to make a
scene which one seldom has the oppor
tunity to -witness and one which is never
The fair and carnival associrtion sent
Sir. Irwin east to secure the Parker
ehows and several other attractions. In
his telegram to Sir. Resing be states
that in addition to the Parkers he has se
cured many other good shows and that
he now has all that are needed. He did
not state what they were but he said
they were fine onees.

Lady Joint Smashers From "Derby
( As a sequel to the joint smashing at
Derby last Friday seven women from
fthat little town were arraigned in the
kclty court before Judg8 Alexander yes
terday afternoon where they plead to
.the charge of assaulting T. H. Mahan
contrary to the statutes of the state of
Kansas. They wore lined $10 and costs,
which their husbands paid immediately,
and ihe loyal temperance band departed
for their homes at Derby.
The trouble had its beginning last week
"when the ladies of that town raided the
only joint in the place. It was stated
yesterday that the ladles went to the
bolnt, loaded the liquors into a wagon
and took them to the Santa Fe depot,
and notified the proprietor that it would
be advisable for him to leave the city
within the next few hours. Monday T.

his attorney, S. B. Amidoo, rode down

made a Hying trip back to Wichita.
Mr. Mahan had warrants made out yes
terday for the following women all of
whom live at Derby, with the exception
of Mrs. McHenry, who lives in this
city: Mrs. Dora Warden, Mrs. Mitchell,
Mrs. Lake, Mrs. Braden, Mrs. Wykoff.
Mrs. Freeman, Mrs. Rogers, Mrs. Mc
Henry, Mrs. Sloat and Mrs. Jones. Mar
shal Thos. Toss went .to Derby yester- '
day forenoon and notified the ladles to
appear in the city court yesterday after
noon for the preliminary hearing. All
were present with the exception of Mrs.
McHenry when court opened. The cases ,
ainst Mrs. Sloat and Mrs. Jones were
dismissed and the other ladies plead
guilty to the charge of assaulting Mr.
Mahan. When they first arrived in the
city the husbands of the ladies stated
that they would fight the case but on (
tho advise of their counsel. Homer Wells,
they decided that it would be better
policy to plead guilty and settle the
matter. After a short talk in which he
cautioned them against taking the law
In their own hands. Judge Alexander
stated that he would have to fine them
each ?10 and costs for tnetr procedings.
He stated that the maximum penalty in
such a caBe was a fine of 5500 and. one
year in jail. Tho court room was filled
with persons interested in the issue of the
hearing, many of whom sympathized
with the ladies and coming from the best
families in that section of the country.
The manner in which they
themselves yesterday showed that
were sincere in their action and
their only wish was to rid their little
town of a nuisance and a menace to the
lives" of their boys.
FRANTZ JOINS BLUES.
Will Finish Season With Gear's Kan-'
sas City Team. i
Walter Frantz. whom for years, clubs
ln Hnth mnlor rind minor leasnies have
been trying to sign, and who
and who is now
wanted by the Philadelphia Nationals,
has been signed by President Gear, of ,
the Kansas City Blues, and reported yes- j
terday morning. It was only through I
personal friendship for Gear that Frantz
.t-as finally induced to go into fast com- j
pany, he and the president of the Blues
having played together in southern Kan
sas on the Winfield and Wellington teams
in and 1S95.
It was tho pitching of Gear and Frantz
that won the state championship for
Winfield in 1S95, and first attracted mag-
nates' attention. Gear accepted an offer ,
and went into the game on a larger scale,
but Frantz has held aloof from, the
professional game until now.
Frantz, who is one of the best known
players in Kansas and Oklahoma, comes
of a family of natural athletes who ex
celled in baseball. Frank, a brother, was
captain in Roosevet s Rough Riders, and
Orville, another brother, was one of tho
greatest first basemen that ever wore a i
The disqualification of Orville at Har
vard is recent history, and came up on a
technical point, he having accepted ex
pense money while playing on the Win
field team. Walter Frantz gained his
first knowledge of the game on the back
lots of Wellington, and his pro
gress was so fast that while yet a mere
youngster he was playing on some of the
fastest semi-professional teams in the
state. He began as a catcher, but later
turned to pitching, and has made that
his study ever since. His home at present
is in Enid, O. T.
He is a big, husky fellow, modest, but
always a hard worker. He will not play
Sunday baseball. When Gear first joined,
Manning, th head of the Blues, tried to
induce Frantz to also join the twirling
staff of tho Kansas City team, but with
no more success than many other clubs.

ANCIENT TUG OF WAR
Will Be Feature of Labor Day
MANY FLOATS IN PARADE
Merchants and Manufacturers
Are Taking Hold of This,
The committee in charge of the Labor
day celebration have arranged for a tug
of war as one of the features of the sports
for that day. This is something that has
never been given in this city before and
has been given but a few times in the
country. It s one of the old Grecian and
Roman sports and it is said to be very in
teresting. Captains are to be chosen from
some labor organizations and these will
select the strongest men in their respect
ive organizations. A good big rope will be
procured and the two teams will match
their strength. An equal number of men
will be chosen on either side and the tug
ging and hauling of the crowd furnishes
very entertaining sport and the prize
which will be hung up for the winning
team Is large enough to cause a good con
test of strength.
The merchants of the city are takinj
hold of the float privlege of the parade
' and practcally every merchant in the city
who employs union clerks and several of
the organizations will have floats of their
own and all of the different organizzations
of this and a number of other cities will
be represented in appropriate uniforms.
The Teamsters' Union has made ar
rangements to have over seventy-five
teams in line. Of course the floats will
have to be hauled, but the teams that are
not used for this will be in line. This will
make quite a parade in itself.
Advance men were sent out over the
country the first of the week posting bills
in every town in southern Kansas and
Oklahoma. The celebration this year is
the best advertised one ever held here
and the committee have announced that
they will have a larger parade and a bet
ter one and also a better line of sports
and attractions for the ofternoon.
There will be some very beautiful floats
in the parade and the exercises in the
park will be first class and interesting,
'ine day will be a holiday in the city and
in other cities and several labor organiza
tions from out of town have made ar
rangements to attend and will add their
strength to the parade. The Newton and
they J several out of town bands have been in
that vited to participate in addition to the
bands of this city. This insures plenty
of music for the parade and also the ex
ercises in the park.
The executive committee which is tak
ing care of the celebration is composed of
delegates from each labor organization
of this city. They meet every Monday
evening and during the progress of the
arrangements have met with such en-

STILL NO HOPES.
Everett Ridgeway Still Lives but Con
dition Is No Better.
The Winfield Daily Courier yesterday
had the folowing to say concerning the
condition of Everett Ridgeway, the man

in the shooting last Thursday evening:
"But poor Everett Kidgeway is no bet

TOO MUCH BUSINESS
On Missouri Pacific Causes Root's
Hackmen All Kinds of Trouble.
E. Rcot, who runs the hack barn just
north of the Missouri Pacific tracks, on
Waco avenue, yesterday registered a big
kick with the city officials because the
Missouri Pacific had so much business
that they often blocked Waco avenue and
First street, and caused' his drivers a
great amount of delay and inconvenience.
He told the city officials that when they
received a hack call they had to start
a long time ahead of the appointed hour,
as the-driver had to wait until he could
cross the tracks. They tried all sorts" of
schemes, and drove many blocks out of
their way, only to find a train at work
on every street they tried to cross. They
had found that the best way was to start
out and then wait for a chance to get
across either Waco avenue or First
REAL ESTATE BROKERS IN CITY
HAVE PAID LICENSE.
The police department which has been
collecting the licenses of the real estate
brokers, life insurance companies, pool
and billiard rooms, bucket shops and
other concerns which come under the
license ordinance have collected the li
censes irom seventy-seven real estate
brokers. There seems to be plenty of real
estate changing hands in this city and
this business supports a goodly number
of men. Tho license Is only two dollars
and a half for six months, but the officers
are after every dealer who has a shingle
over his door announcing that he handles
real estate. While they have not quite
finished their work they expect the num
ber of real estate dealers in the city to
be a little less than ono hundred. The
brokers seem to be enjoying a good trade,
not in the number of sales they are mak
ing, for during the past few weeks the
business has been rather dull but most of
the brokers have a large amount of prop
erty to take care of for non-residents and
this keeps a number of them busy.
It takes forty real estate license to make
a hundred dollars for the city, so that
the amount the city derives from these
licenses is rather small.
.The police derailment has collected
nearly fifteen hundred dollars since they
went to work two weeks ago, and a larger
number of brokers and agents have paid
up than ever before. The officers had to
arrest two real estate men and insurance
agents because they refused to pay the
license, but the police judge fined them
the amount of their license for the past
six months and they paid the license tor
the next half year.
WILL MEET AT NEWKIRK.
To Form Ten Club Interstate Bowling
Representatives from ten Oklahoma
and southern Kansas cities Including
Wichita will meet at Newkirk soon to
organize a bowling league. The cities
which will be represented at the meeting
are Wichita, Winfield, Arkansas City,
Newkirk, Guthrie, Oklahoma City, Nor
man, El Reno and Shawnee. The owners
of the bowling alleys in these cities
have expressed themselves as heartily in
favor of the Inter-State Bowling league
and it is practically certain that it will
Layton of Oklahoma City has been
most active in the movement for tho
formation of the league and in the next
few days a communication is expected
from him notifying the Veneedora peo
ple of the date on which the meeting
will be held. Most of the plans for the
league have been agreed upon in cor
respondence between various teams and
at the Xewkirk meeting it is thought
that all will readily agree upon the
same arrangement and that the purpose
of the meeting will be to organize along
the lines already mapped out.
The league will embrace clubs from
the ten cities and in its workings It will
be much the same as a baseball league.
Each club will, play a series at home and
will then visit the other teams. The
teams will play for a percentage of the'
gate receipts. The home team making
a quarantee of ten dollars a day to the
visitors. Each team will be composed
of three players, and as. in most bowling
contests each team will bolw thirty
frames, the one securing the highest
number of pins being the winner. The
percentage will be kept according to the
number of games won or lost as In base
ball leagues and not according to the
total number of pins secured. It is
thought that the season will open aDout
the first of October and will last about
four months. The team securing the
pennant will also receive some valuable
The Veneedora people In this city are
heartily in favor of the league, and if
it Is a go as seems almost certain now
there will be a series of contests In this
city at least every two weeks. After
the organization of the Inter-State league
at the Xewkirk meeting, local contests
will be held In this city to determine
what players will represent Wichita on
