NfcMenus Instantly Killed at Greenwood. Chicago by Lecture on Marriage Relations. BEGIN WORK IN NOVEMBER T RADICAL MS WAS 'FULL OF CENSURE WOMEN'S CLUBS, MODERN ART EXHIBITS AND THE PRESENT ATTITUDE TOWARDS NUDE I N ART ARE SCORED. Dr. Charles Zueblin. who comes to the Chatauqua this year for several lectures, is creatine no end of discus- slon In Chicago and. elsewhere by his utterances before the students of Chi- cago University. In yesterday's Pal- ladium some radical views of Dr. Zue- blln on morals and American Institu tions were given. In a subsequent lecture Dr. Zueblin spoke on marriage! relations in a manner that has caused many friends of the University to ask whether it would not be well to either suppress the views of Dr. Zueblin or else usk him to give up his place. The sensational utterances which roused a storm of protest dealt with the simple life, and the phase to which the professor devoted his re marks dealt chiefly with sex relations. He began with a discussion of moth erhood. "Motherhood is the chief Interest of the human race," ho said. "Un- sexed animals can not attain so high CI, UV i W lL V CiUJMIlVIlt CXO AVU ail' Imals. Sex Is necessary. Without It the greatest progress can not be made, ,"Tho typical urban man drinks, sweats and works too much and has a greater development of animal char acteristics. Luxuries and prize fights are typical of this urban man. When the laborer wants to work off this ani malism he goes to.seo a prize fight. "When the rich citizen wishes to rid himself of some of this animalism he Indulges In what Is known as Aux- urles. The typical urban woman is hysterical. These degrading char- acterlstic are nothing but characteris- tic of sex. "Our attitude toward the nude in " art is equally the result of tho unclean- liness of our minds. A person of de- cent, clean mind could not object to ; the nude. "Women's clubs may be all right, but it will not be through them that tho emancipation of the sex will come, We must see that children know sex. When fathers and mothers care more for tho future of their children they will forcet their nrudery. "We have never looked at the basis of the marriage relation. We have taken it for granted. "To preserve the heritage of chil- dren and protect them it is course imperative that we have a legal mar- riaee. As long, however, as we are bo much more concerned with the la-1 ' bcl than the real thing there will be this attitude towards marriage." In condemning modern art institutes and the ugliness of present day cities he said: "We should have art made by the people and for the people and a joy to the maker and the user. We don't need art galleries or institutes where people can go and learn to recite the names of the famous artists and see some of their work, but we must have art in the most commonplace things, If we could get all of the people of Chicago to attend the Art institute once a week we could not modify the ugliness of the city. - The kind of art we must have is the kind we must live with. "The curse of the nineteenth centu- ry is that it crushed out the love of art in the people by forcing books up on them. There was once a time when people believed In art and also j lived in It. This time wo 'call the dark ages; perhaps it Is because we can not see into them. TRAFFIC NORTH IS HEAVY IS NOT SO HERE HOWEVER The Grand Rapids and Indiana Rail road it Experiencing a Phenomenal Business to Michigan Out of Other Towns Than Richmond The Grand Rapids and Indiana Rail road is experiencing a, phenomenal traffic to the northern resorts at this time.

The meeting will be held shortly after supper in order that those desiring to attend the Carnival or go to other places of amusement may be able to do-so. . All interested in getting up such a tournament as contemplated are invited to attend the meeting. Enough players have al- ready signified their intention of en tering tho tournament to assure the success of the contest. All that now remains is to arrange the time and place of playing. It has been -viggested that the Country Club courts be used exclu sively for the tournament on account of their superiority over any other courts in (he city. The rules at the Country Club forbid any but members of the Club playing on the courts and this would bar many of the play ers who would like to take part in the tournament. If the tournament play ers are in favor of using the Country Club Courts the committee will be appealed to. It is thought they would be willing to have the courts used It is highly probable that prizes will be secured and awarded to the team winning the doubles and to the player winning the singles. It has been sug- gested that the per cent, basis be used as a method of determining the abili ty of the players. As the tourna ment will be more for the purpose of amusement than for finding out champion players of the city, it ' is thought the percent system would be better than that of having the losing player drop out each time, as is done jn other tournaments Open Bids Today. The Board of Public Works will open bids this morning for the im provement of South 11th street with cement sidewalks from Main to South B streets on both sides. , Ferguson Lost Contest.

Booked in Richmond for Tuesday, August 7. IT MEANS A CIRCUS WAR HAGENBECK SHOW WILL PITCH ITS TENTS ON NORTH NINE- i TEENTH STREET GROUNDS AN UNUSUAL. SITUATION. On Tuesday, August 7, the citizens of Richmond will witness the hardest fought and only battle of its kind in the history of the city. This battle will no be along the lines so often thought of, however, but will be be tween the two circuses. Hagenbeck's nd Cole Bros'. At one time this year it looked as though the circus aggre gations had given Richmond the "icy shoulder," but ' just at the time that people were beginning to get accus tomed to this thought, two circuses be gan clamoring to show in Richmond on the same day, and Richmond will probably have her share of the re nowned red circus lemonade and pea nuts. Probably the greatest fight between the two shows will be in the securing of bill board rights. Partial rights have been secured by the Cole Bros'. shows, but the extent of these rights are not known. As there are several avenues however, to carry on adver tising, it can be said with a certainty that Richmond will be literally cov ered with loud and glaring circus posters, as each show will try to mo nopolize every nook and corner. The Hagenbeck show has closed its contract for feed with the H. J. Ridge and Son feed store. It will use 9,000 pounds of hay, 5,000 pounds of straw, 100 bushels of oats, 15 bushels of shelled corn and 500 bushels of bran. It will show at the 19th street grounds, while Cole Bros', shows will perform at South 8th and H streets.

Attorney Thomas J. Study acting for his client William Ga-tside yes terday made good his throat to ap peal from the decision of the Board of Works in allowing Mr. Gartslde $3,000 damages to his plant, occa sioned by the closing of North Four teenth street for the benefit of the Hoosier Drill Company. A suit for $6,000 damages was filed in the clr cuit court against the city. Mr. Gart side had offered to take damages for $5,000 but this the board refused to agree to. In his complain: he alleges that his real estate and manufacturing plant are worth $15,000 and that the real estate itself $12,000. Damages will be demanded by the obstruction of the street to the extent of one-half the value of the real estate. Ho claims that the 14th street crossing Is the safest and best crossing for him to get from his factory to the freight houses of the city and either to ship or to receive manufactured goods, the railroad track must be crossed. The complaint alleges aside from this crossing all others west of 14th street are dangerous and are frequently closed by passage of trains or other traffic, causing delay in tho transportation of goods to and from the factory; that the obstruction of this street decreases the value of the property which is a rood substantial factory building of three stories. City May Lose Some Money. In case that Gartsido should win his case and be allotted more than $3,600 the difference will have to be made up. by the city. Oi't of the $5,100 which the City will receive as bene fit money from the American Seeding JVIachine Co.. and the Pennsylvania Tiafiroad Co., $600 will be retailed by the City to cover such expenses as advertising and the payment of fur ther damages. Gartslde was allotted in assessment, $3,000 and he s.:es for twice that amount. If Gartslde wins and is alloted by the court his full demand of damages the City will be out $2,400 or any oher amount be tween $6,000 and $3,000 which tho court may allow, unless the Hoosler Drill should make rood tho amount. City Attorney Gardner in speaking of the case last night intimated there would be some sort of a settlement made before the matter reached ac tive court procedure, and that even if the case did go throueh that Gart slde would receive little more, if any, than wha.t the Board allowed him in damages.
