Grotesque Xarade and Maskers This
Afternoon "Will Close To-
3Iorrotv Night.
The scene of the carnival festivities was
temporarily shifted yesterday from the
magic circle and the downtown portion
of the city to Capitol avenue between
Tenth street and Indiana avenue, where
the much talked of race between two
horses and two gasoline motors took place.
Kopes were stretched on both sides of the
street and every foot of space was occupied
ty an eagerly expectant multitude. Cap
tain Kruger with the assistance of Ser
geants Lowe. Lund, Corrlgan and Giblln
and a large force of police attended to the
behavior of the people and kept them out
ot the street. Their work was performed
so efficiently that no one was Injured and
all succeeded in seeing the race. The
horses that were announced to appear in
the race succeeded In escaping from the
man who was sent to Morgantown to
bring them to this city and were replaced
at the last moment by two horses from
this City.
The course over which the race was run
is perfectly straight and about one mile
long. There was some curiosity on the part
of horsemen, who witnessed the event in
regard to the possibility of a horse being
unable to run on the hard macadam pave
ment, but the animals succeeded very well
and there was no mishap to mar the pro
ceedings. The race was run on time, the
contestants getting away promptly at 3
o'clock. A gasoline engine must run about
a quarter of a mile before it gets to going
properly and as a consequence of the race
beginning with a ctandlng start the horses
immediately took the lead. As the ma
chines "warmed up" they began to gain
rapidly, but were unable to overcome the
lead of the horses and the race was won
by Vogel, ridden by William Ellis. Carl
Fisher on a machine was second and
Frank Moore, who also rode a machine
was third. One of the horses became
frightened at the puffing and sputtering of
the gasoline engines and refused to run
The tape was stretched at Michigan
street, and as a consequence a great many
people did not see the race, so Fisher of
fered this as an excuse to run the raco
over again. After much palavering and
after Fisher had offered to pay $10 to the
owner of the horse another attempt was
made. This time the horse was given a
good start, so that there would be no pos
sibility of its becoming scared at the noise
of the machine, and the two machines and
one horse ran to an exciting finish, the
horse winning, as before. There was some
trouble experienced by Fisher and Moore
in controlling their machines, caused by the
roughness of the track and the loose stones
which flew up and got caught in the gear
ing. Taking everything into consideration.
the race was a great success, and a good
many went away satisfied that a horse is
faster than a machine.
While the race was In progress there was
no apparent diminution of the crowds down
town and the attractions of the Magic Cir
cle and New Jersey street were well
patronized. The increase of out-of-town
visitors 'was noticeable and their interest
in all that happened never flagged for an
Instant. The managers of the carnival are
highly elated with the success of the ven
ture and are congratulating themselves,
especially on the financial success of the
enterprise. This success has been so marked
that there has been some talk that the
festivities would be continued next week,
but the management declares that although
they will extend the time one day the
whole thing will close entirely at 12 o'clock
to-morrow night. Therefore every one can
look forward to an extra day of fun, but
after the time set all merrymaking must

This evening the Red Men will give a
Krand masque ball in honor of Tecumseh at
Germania Hall, which will close the pro
gramme of festivities. Owing to the fact
that the hall as newly remodeled Is much
larger than formerly, it has been decided to
Ifcsue additional tickets of admission which
can be secured at Huder's drug store on
the presentation of a written order from
one of the members of the carnival ball
After the grand march the identity of
Tecumseh, the guest of honor, will be pub
licly announced for the first time and the
general speculations as to his identity will
be finally set at rest.

Although the Roosevelt parade last night
occupied the attention of most of the peo
ple who came out in the evening to enjoy
the sights, the carnival attractions were'
not entirely neglected. The shows, how
ever, did most of their business while the
parade was forming. Things were pretty
lively Inside the Circle shortly after 7
o'clock. Chlquita, the Cuban midget, was,
of course, the chief attraction. The camels
were also in demand. Two pretty misses
caused no end of amusement last right by
taking a ride on one of the docile beasts.
When the camel arose to Its feet, with the
girls on its back, they screeched and gig
gled. The big orchestral swing and the Ferris
wheel in the courthouse yard attracted
fome attention, and a good many people
found enoyment at the Oriental Theater on
New Jersey street. The high diver near
by was also patronized. But the great
bulk of the people stood watching the pa
rade, and seemed to prefer that to the
sideshows. The police at the entrance to
the Magic Circle said the crowd which
passed In was not nearly so large as the
night before.
An Enormous Dnstnesn.
On Wednesday night there were 17,562
paid admissions into the Magic Circle.
John II. ReddlnKton Allege that He
Wa Struck Tvlth a Whip.
Charges were preferred with the Board
of Safety yesterday by John H. Redding
ton, chief clerk In the city engineer's office,
against Captain Dawson, of the police de
partment, charging him with conduct un
becoming an officer. Reddlngton says In
his charges that he was standing at the
corner of Washington and Meridian streets
Wednesday night when the head of the al
legorical parade passed, and Captain Daw
son rode up on his horse and he was in
danger of being Injured by the animal. He
grabbed the horse's bridle and asked the
captain if he knew what he was doing,
when the latter answered in an insulting
manner and struck Reddlngton in the face
with his whip.
Captain Dawson says that in using the
whip he was only protecting himself.
"Will Recommend Bond Issue.
City Controller Johnson will get estimates
together and will present at the next meet
ing of the City Council his recommenda
tion for a bond issue to cover the improve
ments in the fire department as recom
mended by the Council and proposed Im
provements at the City Hospital. The fire
department Improvements will cost nearly
1100.000 and the improvements at the City
Hospital about 530,000. Mr. Johnson's recom
mendation will probably call for a bond is
sue of $130.000.
A Remarkable Record for a Day of
Such llg Crouds.
Yesterday passed without the public am
bulances, stationed at the City Hospital
and City Dispensary, being once called out
on emergency runs. The condition la re
markable considering the throngs recklessly
running about the streets. In normal times
the conveyances are called on an average
of three times daily.
The arrests by the police were also re
markably light, seven being the total num
ber. Only two of these were for drunk
enness. Deals in Real Estate.
There have been several big real estate
deals recently, among the larger ones be
ing the conveyance of a forty-foot lot on
College avenue, between Twenty-fourth and
Twenty-fifth streets, from Isaac N. Richie
and wife to Edna M. Reisner and husband,
for 13,000; forty-foot lot on Delaware street
between Seventeenth and Eighteenth
streets, from Frederick J. Bosler and wife
to Wlllard J. Evans for $3.000; two forty
foot lots between Twentieth and Twenty
first streets, from Susan K. Blackrldge to
Fletcher S. Hines and wife for $13,000; two
lots at the corner of Shelby and Naomi
streets from Elenor Kuhlmann to George
E. Kulhmann for $3,000.
Fire Department Runs.
The fire department had a comparatively
quiet time last night, considering the fire
works. Although there were several
alarms, there was only one fire of conse
quence, at 6"-J Harmon street, which was
easily handled by the department, and only
a small loss was incurred.
Aew Associations.
The following articles of incorporation
were filed yesterday with the secretary of
state: Indiana and Ohio Traction Com
pany, capital, $75O,0u0; Roaehdale Union
Telephone Company, capital, $1.000. T.le
Hwayzee Glass Company increased its cap
ital stock from $30,UU0 to $130,000.
o Arrests Made. .
Although the police were on the alert,
there were no arrests made last night dur
ing the parade. Everybody seemed so in
tent on seeing the shew that they had no
time to "get gay." and consequently they
kept out of trouble.
Asked to Look for Tiro Men.
The police were asked last night to
watch for William McGlll and Daniel
Mays, who broke Jail at Danville, Hend
ricks county, last evening. McGill was
awaiting trial for grand larceny and Mays
for bigamy.
The residence of Dr. Hulizer, of Cler
mont, was burned to the ground the other
day. Only a small portion of the household
goods was saved. Mrs. Ilulsizer's pocket
book, containing fcx) and valuable papers,
was destroyed.

In the history of the Union Station per
haps no greater crowds ever passed
through the gates in two hours' time than
passed through them last night from 10 to
12 o'clock, and even long after midnight
the people were still seeking their trains.
The first of the excursion trains left about
10:30 o'clock and from that time on until
midnight and later the special trains left
the station loaded down with humanity.
Superintendent Zion, of the Union Rail
way Company, was in the sheds during the
night, personally looking after the crowds.
Station Master Lewis was one of the
busiest men in town. The regular force of
men at. the station is usually about sixty,
but last night the force was Increased to
about one hundred. Policemen were sta
tioned at the east end of the sheds to pre
vent people stealing in that way. These
police were kept busy, for many people
sought to elude the vigilance of the gate
keepers and get In anyway. One man with
his family sought to enter through the east
end of the station about 11 o'clock and a
policeman blocked the way.
"You can't go through here," said the of
ficer. "But we have to," said the other man.
"cur train Is due to leave and we can't get
through the gates." This was an argument
that the policeman could not meet.
After a while people discovered that both
ends of the sheds were open and that
there were no policemen at the west end.
Many people got in that way and caused
the force of police inside the sheds no end
of trouble and worry In keeping them out
of the way of trains. Several times during
the night the crowd that pressed against
the iron picket fence that separates the
sheds from the depot proper became so
rnnp-pstpfi that it was necessary for the
police to "plow" a passageway. A couple
nf hrawnv officers made several trips of
this kind through the crowd. It seemed
that the excursion . trains that went out
carried more people than they brought in.
Men stood on the platforms and crowded
and pushed in many instances to get even
a foothold on the steps, as the train
started. Although the crowd was an Im
mense one, and it was eager and anxious
and expectant in its efforts to get through
the gates, no serious disturbances were
reported. A larg per cent, of the crowd
was composed of women, and many a
pretty dress and fine bit of millinery suf
fered from the crush. . It was a good-natured.
Jolly crowd, and everybody care
fully refrained from stepping on anybody
else's corns.
Between 11 and 12 o'clock, when the pa
rade began to break up. and the out-of-town
clubs began arriving at the station
with banners and drums there was in
creased activity, and consequently more
work for the policemen and tho gate men.
Occasionally someone would get caught in
the crowd with a child, and If the little
one was too small to take care of itself,
it was held high above the heads of the
crowd until those In charge of It were able
to get through the gates. It was almost
Impossible for the gate men to examine
all the tickets that were presented to them,
so great was the crush, but they did ex
cellent work, and on the whole the crowd,
was very well handled.
The station officials handled the crowds
that continued to pour into the depot the
best they could with the limited facilities
for tracking the traln. Some ime after
midnight the congestion was not relieved,
and as soon as ono train would pull out
carrying hundreds of people their places
would be taken by the droves of people who
had marched to the station to catch their
trains. Train callers ran up and down the
platform calling the trains on the various
tracks, and they were soon filled. The
crowd was so large it was utterly impos
sible to care for the people inside the gates,
and they were admitted to the tralnsheds,
where they stood on the platforms between
the tracks waiting for their trains. The
needs of increased facilities at the Union
Station were never so forcibly demon
strated as they were during the three or
four hours after 10 o'clock last night. The
parade held the crowds in the down town
streets until quite late, and then there was
a rush for the station, and it was inade
quate to handle the throngs.
One train after another pulled into the
station and as soon as its destination was
announced there was a scramble for the
cars. The station employes said it was the
largest crowd they ever had to handle and
while the facilities were not in their favor
they made the waiting people as comfort
able as possible under the circumstances,
and ran the trains Into the depot as soon
as they were made up. The regular trains
due about the time the specials were to
leave added to the general confusion, but
they were loaded and sent out with but a
few minutes delay. It was nearly 2 o'clock
this morning when the specials were all
sent out of the station and then there were
crowds of people in the waiting rooms and
in the sheds, waiting for the regular trains
to return home. Never in the history of the
Union Station have the crowds been fo
large. Had all the persons desiring to
catch their trains flocked to the depot at
the same time the crowd would have been
backed up to Georgia street.
Charles Blaine, of Sheridan, was severely
Injured while descending a flight of stairs
In a hotel near the station to go to the
station. He slipped and fell and was un
conscious for several minutes. His head
was severely bruised and he was hurt in
ternally. IThe City Hospital ambulance
was called, but friends took care of him
and he was sent home.
Richard Carvel" ou the Stage.
New York Evening Sun.
.What a pity that nearly every member
of the "Richard Carvel" cast, women and
men. should be taller than John Drew!
Valiant actor as he h, he can't quit over
come the extinguishing circumstances of
being literally looked-down upon. For any
other character. It wouldn't matter so
much. But with all those tall men ad
dressing u quite short man as "Young
Hercules." and ' Strong Arm." and "A
Second Samson." not to speak of side
remarks upon his wondrous height and
breadth and girth and what some of the
cast call his "stren'th." It is just a bit in
congruous. In the first scene, where his
many-caped coat Inconsiderately cuts down
Richard's height several inchesand he
with not one to spare the effect Is almost
ludicrous. To the admirers of Mr. Drew
It is pathetic. Instead of a stalwart youns
hero giant as those readers successful in
struggling through Mr. Churchill's story to
the bitUr end assure us young Carvel was,
we have a foreshortened, elderly little mon
key of a man whose capers and tin-sword
play just miss being grotesque. The spec
tator has to keep saying over und over
again to herself that stock consolation of
most short people. Oh, well neither was
Napoleon tall." In some of his other
clothes Richard doesn't look so short. But
at no time can the most Infatuated matinee
maid but regret her Idol's being forced to
play a part In which he Is at such material
olsadvantase. A hat that would create a
sensation at Sorosls could more be said
than that? 13 worn by the Dorothy Man
ners of the piece, who Is made up a la the
last stagf Maryland heroint; Julia Mar-
lov.e. It takes more than a brown wis to
do this, however, as it also take more than
Miss Conquest's Sunday-school festival,
commencement day style of "speaking
pieces" to give life and charm to her lines.
It is In its dimensions that her hat de
mands attention. Not inches but feet, and
Chicago feet nt that, may these bo meas
ured in. It Is without doubt the largest
piece of millinery ever exhibited on any
stage, not to say off the stage, including
women's club meetings. "You cannot see
the mountain near," nays Emerson. To
get a true idea of this hat you have to
look at It through the wrong end of the
opera glass. What an Ironical stage-fate,
that it should have so many inches and
Richard so few!

An Increase In Death from Diphthe
ria nnd Typhoid A Complete
The State Health Board yesterday Issued the
following bulletin:
"The total number of deaths In Indiana during
September was 3.12h a decrease as compared
with August of 1H). The death rate for August
was and for September 14.4. The death rate
for September is higher, although there wem
fewer deaths. This is because there is one day
more in August than in September. The- deaths
among chiluren ranging in age Irom one to five,
inclusive. In September were 1.1'Jl, a decrease of
HC over th preceding month. The old people dli
rot suiier so heavily in September as In August,
the respective figures being for persons sixty-nve
years and over 613 for the latter month and 3u3
for tu former, showing a difference of 23. liy a
singular coincidence the number cf deaths from
pulmonary tuberculosis was exactly the same
for the two months above named, the figure be
ing 242. The typhoid deaths increased In Septem
ber 00 over August, the figures being, espectively,
230 and 140, making a pcrcentum increase of 64.
Diphtheria also shows an Increase in September,
tho August deaths from this disease numbering
and for September 12, an Increase of 23, or "ii
per cent.
"In our analysis for August we predicted an
increase in the diphtheria deaths as well a3 in
the typhoid deaths, and here verification of the
prediction appears. Croup, scarlet fever and
measles caused, respectively, 9. 4 and 3 deaths,
whil to hooplngcough 22 deaths are recordei.
Pneumonia increased over 54 aeaths in Auguet to
61 in September. Diarrhoeal diseases, which
have been repeatedly pronounced food poisoning,
caufed 600 deaths in August and 412 in Septem
ber In children under five. The appeararnce of
ct-ol weather always reduces this class of dis
eases because of the diminishing of fermentative
processes. Cerebro spinal meningitis . caused iM)
deaths, influenza 6, puerperal fever 17, cancer 87
and violence 123. There were two deaths from
smallpox, one in Cass county and one in Jasper
"The northern sanitary section, having a pop
ulation of 887,523, reports 1.020 deaths, a rate of

southern sanitary section, population 731,055 re
ports S6 deaths, with a rate of 14.4. This Is the
first time during this statistical year that the
death rate of the various sections has been to
nearly uniform. The typhoid death rate per 100,000
population for the various sanitary sections Is as
fellows: Northern, 72.8; central, 121.4; southern,
12.1. In diphtheria a different state of affairs
exists, for the northern section Ehows a rate of
Zt.i, the central 14.2 and the southern 20. Of
pneumonia the northern shows a rate of 21.9, the
central 82.1 and the southern 30. Of childbed
fever the northern section shows a rate of 2.7,
the central S.3 and the southern 13.3. All of the

Rome Letter In the Argonaut.
More interesting to mc than visits to the
Vatican are visits to the Vatican gardens.
For a number of years the gardens have
been closed to the public. The guide-books
say nothing of them, the rtat0rapheis
have no views of them on sale. There
fore, when we learned that the Vatican
gardens were to be temporarily thrown
open to the pilgrims, we hastened thither,
for we are pilgrims, too. We found to our
delight that the other pilgrims apparently
had not yet learned cf it, for the gardens
were practically deserted.
For an hoar we wandered through them
and met no man or woman, either, as
Hamlet says save two or three aged gar
deners. For all things In the Vatican gar
dens, even the gardeners, seem to be old.
The gardens are not many acres in extent,
but they seem much larger than they really
ere. The walks and drives are laid out with
much skill and are shut off by lofty box
wood hedges. It is possible, therefore, to
wander for a long distance without retrac
ing one's steps. The gardens are a quaint
r.nd pleasing mixture of primness and wlld
ness. Immediately at the entrance you find
some acres of flower beds, laid out in the
fetlffest style of Italian landscape garden
hrsg. But leaving this in a winding walk
which climbs a hill you are peedily lost
in a forest of trees which shuts off the view
completely. Here you might believe yourself
far from a city, were It not that you dis
tinctly hear the muffled roar of Home.
Under the dense shads of these ancient
trees are old fountains, old statues, old
arches, old columns everything is moss
grown and old. Ferns grow luxuriantly in
this dense and humid shade delicate matd-ens'-halr
as well as the more hardy brakes.
The hillside climbed, we come out of the
shade and Into the sun. On the sunny side
of the hill there is a small vineyard, a
small orchard, a small poultry yard, a
small deer park and a small ostrich pen.
Here there are several pavilions, or sum
mer houses, which the Pope at times oc
cupies, and from which magnificent views
may be had of Rome and the Campagna.
At this point one of the venerable gar
deners approached us, and with much lm
presslveness led us to a summer house and
showed us a peep-hole through which we
could see the very chair in which the holy
father had sat. Price, 20 cents. But the
gardener was an amusing old soul, and see
ing a chance of another tip, he escorted us
around the "ranch" for the mixture of
orchard, vineyard and poultry yard inevi
tably suggested that term. Here we en
countered two tourist priests, who, seeing
that the gardener was acting as cicerone,
immediately followed and listened to his
prattle. For half an hour they stuck to us,
disappearing only when the time came to
settle, when they swiftly vanished. They
were dark-browed, dark-complexioned fel
lows, and uttered no sound as they stalked
behind us, with their black skirts flapping
around their sturdy legs. I wondered
whether they could be Italians. The dia
logue between the gardener and myself
was of a nature to make Ariosto weep and
Tasso grieve. I am not strong In Italian; I
can make myself understood in it, but I
speak English much better. If those priests
were Italian I shudder when I think of
that dialogue. But If they were Italian and
could listen to it with gravity, I greatly ad
mire their self-control. '
The old gardener parted with us with re
gret after having sold us some cuttings
from plants. His regret was over not ask
ing for more. He was a nice old man, but a
trifle mercenary. Most of the Vatican serv
ants are.
When we left the old gardener we started
to return by what we thought to be the
same route, but It led us into an entirely
different part of the grounds. Here we
climbed a hill which was the highest in the
gardens. I think that we must have been
on top of Möns Vatlcanus. At our feet lay
the vast pile of buildings which together
are called the Vatican. Apparently on a
level with us was the great dome of St.
Peter's. Around the railing at the top we
could see the minute figures of tourists
looking from the dome to the Vatican hllL
From there we descended the hill and made
our way back toward the gateway. We
passed tho building called "Casino del
Papa," where the Popes used to dwell
during the heats of summer. It Is a hand
some building, covered with the self
laudatory Inscriptions of the various
Popes who have adorned it. Not only in
the Vatican gardens, but all over Rome,
you see magniloquent inscriptions setting
forth the astounding virtues of the various
Popes who repaired bridges or, restored
facades "Most Munificent Prince, Plus"
"Most Virtuous Prince, Clement" "Most
Learned Prince, Sixtus." If the Popes
have had a besetting sin It Is not modesty.
As we were making our way toward the
exit we met another tourist priest an old
Italian who had apparently lost his way.
He asked us about it, and we sent him
right. He was unmistakably a tourist, for
he had a guide book, and, pointing to a
tower, told me it was the Borgia tower.
He meant well, but the gardener had al
ready told us it was the Leonine tower.
He was completely lost.
Fancy two pilgrims from Western Amer
ica telling an Italian priest how to find his
way about the gardens of the Vatican.
Errors Commonly Made In Preparing
Washington Post.
The old advice about going on the stage
"don't" applies with equal force to most
ambitious young people who try to write
pieces for the newspapers and magazines.
In ninety-nine times out of a hundred the
difficulties encountered are Insurmountable,
mainly because of the inexperience of the
writer and the failure to understand the
first principles of what is required in the
shape of manuscript.
The principal occupation of the Sunday
editor on a big newspaper is returning re
jected manuscripts. To be sure the Sun
day editor has to read and revise a few ac
ceptable manuscripts about 1 per cent, of
the mass of matter submitted to a big
newspaper but all of his spare time is oc
cupied by the matter submitted which can
not possibly be used. Some newspapers re
turn all manuscripts not available, whether
stamps have been Inclosed with the article
or not; but as this Item of expense is con
siderable In the course of a year there are
few publications which do this, most of
them announcing positively that no contri
butions will be read or returned unless
stamps are inclosed. In violating this par
ticular rulo the average amateur writer
usually loses his manuscript for good and
all, though tho usual procedure in that case
Is an Indignant letter souw weens later de
manding the return of the original manu
script "or Its cath equivalent."
Probably tho most glaring vital mistake
made by amateur writers Is the use of the
t-trsonal nronoun "l" throughout a story.
Some editors have their steadfast rules
prohibiting the. ue of the pronoun. It de
tracts from the original stury by concen
trating too much attention upoi; the story
teller; and It requires the ue of a signa
ture, which nearly all editorc object to
ttrohgly, especially In newspaper ofliecs.
Moreover, careful study of the best writer,
r.nd experience likewise, will easily con
vince any one that a rtory Is better toM by
being kept in the third person altogether.
Newspaper stories should always be written
In the third person, unless the writer Is so
well known that his name lends additional
value to the article.
Another mistake made by the amateur
writer Is carrying hU wares in person to
the edtior whom he assail.-. He is actu
ated by a mistaken theory that a personal
impression is always more convincing than
cne made by letter.
Writers who have articles to submit to
the editorial eye should patronize the malls.
They are absolutely safe and sure, und they
f ave the time of the writer and the time of
the editor, whom they reach at an hour
when he expects to consider such matters.
Moreover, articles should be accompanied
by stamp. Inclosed In oiled paper to pre
vent them from adhering to the manu
:;cTlpt: and the writer should expert to re
ceive his manuscript, if rejected, by way of
the mails. Seme writers like to send man
uscripts without htamps. mldlr.fr n note to
the effect tl:üt if not used they will call for
tho article. This is a grievous mistake for
the amateur to make, for his theory that
the editor will hate to hand back the re
jected manuscript In pvrton is a wrong
It may Le considered almost uperfinou
to point out that manuscripts thoutd be
written on one lde of the pHpcr.only. but
It I not. SurnrUIng as It may seem, doens
and dozens of manuscripts written on both
sides of th paper are received each week
!n rwpfcper olficcs.
These mistakes are all the accidents of
the Innocent and Inexperienced. It is per
haps unjust to blame thoe who do not
know better, but one purpose Is accom
plished by printlng out their errors at
least the discerning proiit by them. Manu
scripts submitted to any editor should b
either Irgibly written cr typewritten, and
they should be written for some particular
publication, after carefully studying tho
style of the periodical nnd liie clai-s of
reading matter found in its columns.
The ability to study the style of various
publications Is the real secret of the suc

Certain periodicals have certain preferences
for particular kinds of reading matter, and
for stories on certain subjects. It would

but the careful observer and reader will

principal ones.
