There was but little real business trans
acted yesterday either at the Republican

t the Republican county executive com
mittee. Everybody eat around as though
they were tired. But while no one wanted to
work, everyone wanted to talk about the
royal reception accorded Colonel Roose
YelL and or the monster demonstration in
hi honor the night before. At the county
headquarters there was a steady stream of
visitors all day. Just dropping in, so they

significance to be attached to the Roose

to Colonel Harry B. Smith and those who
assisted him In the formation of the big
parade. Colonel Smith himself feels that
the demonstration reflected credit on hi
efforts, and, bis face yesterday was

and contentment. The Democrats, unable
to say anything in depreciation of the
wonderful ovation accorded to Governor
Roo?velt. content themselves by saying

people in the parade, but the lowest figure?

SOME LUDICRUOUS MAKEUPS
THE SPECTATORS WERE KEPT IX
Parade Appreciated Largely Recnuse
of the Change from Se
From the beautiful to the grotesque was
the change made In the carnival pro
gramme yesterday afternoon. During the
morning the thousands of sightseers had
looked upon the picturesque and gorgeous
floats in the merchants' parade, but the
contrast In the afternoon was striking. The
picture presented from the corner of Illi
nois and Washington streets as the gro
tesque parade moved westward was one
which the old and young enjoyed, and those
who have been proof against the "carnival
spirit," so prevalent during the week, were
lnfecfed with the contagion as the fun
makers took possession of that thorough
fare and others in the city. The antics and
buffoonery displayed brought laughter from
the most sedate spectator. The Infection
"took," and It was a battle against one's
stronger nature to prevent many of the
people from smearing paint on their faces
and Joining the "funny people."
Everything Imaginable to make one laugh
was in the parade the clowns, animal
trainers, snake charmers, grotesque fire
men and hayseed bands. One surprise
after another, all ludicrous from beginning
to end, made the parade the feature of the
carnival, as It was the nearest thing bor
dering on the Mardl Gras given. Dutch
hats, tramp outfits, Chinese garb, spinach
whiskers, antiquated costumes, careless
display of make-up, grotesque suits, satiri
cal take-offs of up-to-date Inventions and
everything in the category of a ludicrous
spectacle was In line. From Bert Feible
man, grand marshal, who wore a mixture
of revolutionary and French costume on a
make-believe pony, the motive power being
his own pedal extremities, to the small
pickaninny In a garb of coffee sack and
hay, the make-up of the characters caused
ceaseless laughter. In Feibleman's staff
were Superintendent Quigley, George Her
pick, William Magulre. J. E. Christian.
Harry Mechel and H. E. Negley.
HE DROPPED OUT.
General Carnahan was about the only one
in the parade who did not attire himself
to suit the occasion, and he was so con
spicuous on this account that he 'dropped
out of the long line of mirth provokers and
allowed them to have full possession of the
city. Following Grand Marshal Felbleman
came his staff, mounted on real horse flesh.
Captain Dawson, with a hat of wonderful
design and a bunch of black whiskers, was
at the head of the escort, all of whom were
unrecognizable. Felbleman pranced into
the crowd every ten feet, but his "animal"
did not kick, and no accidents were re
ported. His long gold epaulets, hang
ing nearly to his waist, brushed in the faces
of the spectators, and his Innumerable
badges of honor pinned to his coat, placed
him on equal footing with dead generals
of ancient history. His aid, Tony Dais,
also rode a horse of . equal tameness, but
he also cut up capers In the wake of
Felbleman. Superintendent of Police Qulg
ley's fat cheeks protruded from a sudden
hirsute growth, and he was the admiration
of all the "cops" along the line.
The Indianapolis Military Band Imported
from Brown county genuine farmer outfits
that gave forth the aroma of :v,-w-mown
hay. A crowd of haymakers, composed
of Red Men, followed the band. The Chi
nese band, with a following of "Boxers,"
presented a heathen appearance, and a big
float with a dead foreigner added to the
horrors of what they might be capable of
doing If not subdued by the importance
of keeping in line. They carried a huge
kettle labeled "Mishunary Supe," and even
made the Chinese laundrymen along the
line of march smack their lips. A scrawny
horse with a movement of a trot in one
fore foot and a walk in the other was
pictured as "Searchlight." Had Sousa, the
famous bandmaster. Been the band in the
parade bearing his name, he would no
doubt have fumed with envy. Instrumenta
of the vintage of many decades ago, dented
until they looked like artistic pieces of
hammered brass, sent forth strains (and
It took straining to do It) that made the
A FIRE BRIGADE.
With a few single figures, all grotesque,
Intermingled in the parade the flaring red
shirts of the Dark Town Fire Brigade light
ed up the beaming faces of the merry
makers. This brigade was the Social Turn
verein turnout. Oscar Pflumm was the
chief, and whenever he saw a red haired
man or girl on the streets he sent In an
alarm, which was sounded on a big engine
bell, and the noble firemen pumped from
the fire wagon, sending out a little stream
of water to extinguish the imaginary flame.
This wagon also dampened the enthusiasm
of many of the sightseers, for the water
was turned on them in an "accidental"
manner, as the stream, about a quarter of
an inch in size, was too strong to be con
trolled by the half-dozen stalwart firemen.
The supply wagon of the brigade was
loaded with watermelons, and it was won
derful how often the firemen called upon
this Important part of the brigade.
Then followed the Elks circus, with a
stcntorlan-lunged giant occupying one of
the seats on the fiont wagon, announcing
to the multitudes along the line of march
that there would be a grand free show Im
mediately after the procession. The Italian
hand organ (George Colter) and his enor
mous monkey (Harry Porter) pranced
along the side of one of the cages while
the monk passed his cap, gathering in
shekels from the pitying public. The den
of lions and a wagonload of world's famous
acrobats, doing tricks that the Nelson and
other famous families would not dare to
duplicate in all of their marvelous tricks,
came next. Contortionists who could kick
three feet high and pick up handkerchiefs
with their hands and feet from tables, high
trapeze performers and aerial artists that
soared an high as the monument In doing
their tricks were in this lot.
THE BABY ACT.
The biggest baby in the world (Val
Farhbach) wheeled In an enormou3 baby
cab, accompaned by a nurse large enough
for a regiment of squalling infants, and
carrying a ten-gallon bottle of milk, was
there. The sacred cow from Haughvllle
then added another surprise and the people
were unscrupulous enough to laugh at the
little Jersey heifer, although it was
guarded by an escort of Mexican greasers
and followed by a cowboy (Steve Cruw-
ford) with a revolver as big as a six-inch
pun. Mike Jefferyon was in "The Bare
Cage," and his gently curving ankles and
kgs were hardly discernible in his brown
tights. The golden chariot that would be
a disgrace to the most humble farmer as
a cast-off wagon and four animals that
will soon follow a funeral dirge to Sellers
farm had a breakdown on Washington
street as one of the bony horses was
unused to the hard asphalt pavement and
finding no muddy clay, into which he could
plant his hoofs, he slid over the street and
had to be taken from the harness while the
driver, a handsome blonde, was loaded
Into one of the cages with the untamable
"Ben-IIur" (Henry Sp-insrfell) was resur
rected and his outfit would have made a
i-orry spectacle In a race. Then came tho
den of blacksnakes. fierce looking things
that are used by dray driven. "O'ttrkn
and his other terriers" filled another
cage. It was Harry O'Brien, with
about a dozen cur dogs that yelped at
every street crossing and added a fury
to the roar of the stuffed bears and lions.
A top buggy wa3 seen coming down the
street, at least it was recognized to be the
remnants of a buggy with its spokes
broken, leather top worn away from ex
posure to the hard winters of fifty cr sixty
yea:s. Those seated In the automobile did
not show the appearance of having ridden
in one of the Newport swell automobile
parades, but they won the applause of the
people Just the same. The motive power
was soon discovered to be a horse, whose
slat3 rattled while crossing street car
tracks. Two long p!ece3 of undressed tim
ber were nailed to the buggy and between
these the animal was hitched. The lan
te.n and bells were antique affairs, while
the guiding rbd was an old-fashioned
brake. This contrivance was manned by
Charles Balz and W. F. Kleis.
The daring bareback rider, AI Donahue,
rubbed the bristles the wrong way on his
two mounts, a pair of squealing pigs, and
he was forced to do many acrobatic turns
to maintain his equilibrium. The "corps de
ballet," designed by Charles Zimmerman
and led by him In Mephisto costume, was
one of the howling features of the parade.
His sunshine beauties were attired in
tights, and some wore mustaches (real
ones.) Their legs were knotty, their backs
humped and thejr arms anything but the
alabaster kind. They were not subjects to
immortalize in marble as was the famous
"Sapho." The tandem bicycle was a clev
erly constructed arrangement with two
wheels of a regular machine, while the
framework was made of lumber. Webb Jay
had a traveling bowling alley, the Immense
balls sounding like the distant rumblings
of thunder and the players looked like old
Rip Van Winkle.
The elephant and camels of the Bostock
show were used in the parade, and were
ridden by Elks attired in' Turkish costumes,
and many pulling away desperately at
Turkish cigarettes. The steam calliope of
the Elks circus was a wonderful innova
tion in this sort of musical feature of the
bigger circuses that sometimes visit In
dianapolis. Puffing and snorting this huge
thing rolled down the street It is generally
used for rolling down streets, as it is
owned by one of the asphalt paving com
panies in laying new pavements the music
(with apologies to the Musicians' Union)
was not audible until it was within a few
feet of the people. It was explained that
probably the engineer did not have enough
steam to play often, but when it came in
sight it was found that there were hardly
any recesses taken on the part of Al Moore,
the chief musician. He was seated on the
top of the front roller armed with a small
tin whistle which could scarcely be heard
above the din caused by the puffing of the
TANDEM MULE TEAM.
Sol Munter rode a tandem mule team,
and his make-up as a clown was a revela
tion. The Manual Training High School
and the Indianapolis High School students
were represented In grotesque costumes
The M. T. H. S. students were dressed as
Indians, and the I. H. S. boys had an ele
phant float. The English Zouaves, com
mandeu by Captain Fox, made an ideal
awkward squad, and their side-arms were
hatchets, picks, clubs and toy pistols. Jap
Clemens, always known as a versatile man,
sprung a new trick on the people by as
suming the leadership of a funny band.
There were many other features to tha
parade which helped to make it one of thz
most unique spectacles ever seen on the
streets of Indianapolis. It was a laugh
provoking panorama of ludicrous sights
from beginning to end, and was voted 1
be one of the features of the carnival.
The Judges were W. W. Knight, Henry
Bals and J. C, Power, who will meet to
day and decide the winners of the prizes.
The Elks showing was the principal fea
ture of the entire procession, and Edward
Sowerbeer and Al Donahue, who arranged
the plans for the" turnout, received the con
gratulations of their friends.
The police patrol did good service In
charge of many of the Jesters. They drove
up and down the line of march arresting
prominent citizens and placing them in
the wagon. The patrol was soon filled,
and the men, all of whom experienced thelt
first ride In such a conveyance, were car
ried up and down before the thousands of
people. T. M. Goodloe had a burlesque
on the salvage corps In the parade. This
corp is advertised to save everything, but
the men who carried a huge piece of canvas
terrorized the young colored boys along
the line by picking them up and throwina
them into the canvas and tossing them
high into the air.
Thirty-Five Cases at Connersvllle A
A report has been received by Dr. Hurty
from the Board of Health of Connersvllle
stating that there are thlrty-flve cases of
diphtheria at that place and that it has
been the cause of two deaths within the
last week. The communication stated that
as a safeguard against the further spread
of the disease in the schools, where it has
been especially serious, the health authori
ties have decided to examine all school
children and compel those who show the
slightest indication of the disease to quit
school and place themselves in quarantine
until all possibility of contagion has passed.
Those children who display no Indication
of diphtheria or any other throat trouble
will be permitted to attend school under
the supervision of the medical board. After
much experience this method has been
adopted as the only way to stop the gen
eral spread of contagious diseases.
Dr. Hurty also received a message from
the secretary of the Michigan State Board
of Health Informing him that Joseph K.
Detmeller became afflicted with smallpox
at Brutus, Mich., and having left that place
is now reported to be at Waukarusa, in
this State. The doctor immediately tele
graphed the health authorities at that place
to apprehend Detmeller and place him In

Miss Vawter was born In Virginia In
1S73, and had lived In this city only about
a year, coming from Greenfield, which she
legarded as her home. Her literary work

A mail pouch thrown from a Pennsyl
vania train at Southport was found by a
man about a mile from Southport and
brought to this city. It was torn into shreds
and the letters which had been contained in
it had been scattered along the track for
some distance. The mysterious disappear
ance of the pouch caused the local railway
postal officials much concern and the tele
graph lines were kept hot for several days.
Many of the letters were destroyed. The

THE POLICE 3IADE S03IE EFFORT TO
The Carnival Finances Cannot He
Computed Yet Cnlon Station
Statistics Other Features.
Last night was one of revelry, the revel
ers having full possession of the downtown
streets and the Magic Circle, and any one
who disputed the right of the merry-makers
to have full sway was forced to change
his opinion, for If he demurred he was
stormed with a shower of confetti, filling
his mouth, eyes, ears and, in fact, cover
ing his entire body. The people simply
cut all the strings that bound them to any
semblance of tedateness and turned the
night into one grand Jollification, stopping
at nothing to have their fun.
From early in the evening until long
past midnight the streets were Jammed,
while the Circle on the outside of the
Magic Circle was the stamping ground
for the merry-makers. The Court of Honor
was congested all evening, and Washington
street wa3 almost impassable. The fun
began In a mild form, but gradually in
creased until the "carnival spirit" seized
the people In a maddening way. The ma
jority of the crowd kept within the bounds
of propriety, but a few resorted to tricks
that escaped the notice of the police. Con
fetti throwing was one of the forms of
amusement, but early in the evening the
places handling this article sold out, and
then the small boys gathered the stuff
off the streets and sidewalks and threw
It In the people's faces. Many of the more
enterprising youngsters secured paper bags
and filled them, selling the confetti at a
clear profit. So great was the demand
for the small bags of paper that the price
Jumped from 5 cents a package to 10 cents.
and went like stuff at a fire sale.
KNOCKED OFF HATS.
Tired of throwing confetti, the boys and
girls and young men and young women
armed themselves with canes and parad
ed the streets, knocking off the hats of
the people. The small boys were armed
with rubber balls which they bounced off
the heads of the other merry-makers.- Ev
erybody Joined In the revelry, and inside
the Magic Circle the big elephant wagged
his trunk In glee as he meandered back
and forth on the pavement, carrying his
crowd of people at 10 cents "per." The
camels blinked their eyes as they knelt
to the ground to unload their burdens of
screaming, tittering women. Even little
Chlqulta smiled the more sweetly on her
giant admirers and looked as if she would
like to fill the faces of all who looked at
her with confettL
As the evening progressed, the young
men became bolder, and formed themselves
In groups, attacking the girls, circling
around them, and giving them loving em
braces that they did not bargain for. More
girls received embraces from more men
during the evening than they had ever ex
perienced before In their lives, and their
protests availed them not. Sometimes the
girls got the better of the argument, and
a resounding whack from a right-hand
slap on the side of the face announced
that one of them had successfully coun
tered on one of her assailants. Four young
men circled around a girl on the Circle
and as they increased their speed, one
of the girls tripped one of the young men
and he was sent sprawling against the
curbing, his hat being mashed, and the
girls greeting his efforts to gather himself
together with cries of derision.
MANY IN MASKS.
There were all kinds of masks and make
ups to be seen on the streets the black
face comedians," the Chinamen, Dutch
hats, and tramps. One pretty girl was
dressed as a French vlvandier and her
petite ..form attracted the eye of all the
merry-makers." Then there was the silly
girl, who threw confetti at the men and
giggled while her own mouth was filled
with the small bits of paper; the "sassy"
girl, who "read the riot act" when she was
made the "mark" for a handful of the
confetti she was able to play a Joke but
not to receive one; then the timid girl was
also in the crowd the one who ducked
her head and said the men were "nasty
things" for showering her with the paper.
There were many otuer types that are sel
dom noticed in everyday life, but during
the revelry they were in force.
All classes mingled and the prettier the
irl the greater the attention shown her
y the revelers. The attention, however,
was not as mild as would be shown her
In a ballroom In her own set. Among the
men could be found those who indulged
in only the milder forms of amusement
while others resorted to bolder tricks.
The obliging young man was also out
the one who carried a small whisk broom
and brushed tho confetti from the women's
dresses. Those who appeared on the
streets in the early hours with no signs of
a disguise turned their coats wrong side
out and smeared their faces with bu;nt
cork. They would then make "V" rushes
through the crowd as If they were In a
football game and after a touchdown.
This sort of revel was broken up by the
police, who stormed the crowd, driving the
fun-makers back. At the corner of Wash
ington and Meridian streets It required the
services of a half dozen policemen to keep
the sidewalk from being Impassable and as
soon as the officers would make one rush
the sidewalk would immediately be filled
again with the masquers.
A PERFECT BEDLAM.
All manner of devices were used to make
a noise, the large tin cans with strings In
them being numerous. Tin buckets were
carried over the streets and tin pans were
used for drums. A squad of Zouave cadets
Joined in the fun showing gallantry in act
ing as a body guard for young men and
then displaying the "carnival madness" by
circulating around a pretty girl and hold
ing her prisoner for some time. Two girls
amused- themselves throwing confetti at
the men and when the latter retaliated the
girls used canes, beating a tattoo on the
men's heads. About midnight the night
became hideous with the addition of a
crowd of new masquers resembling the
Imps of hades. Many hats were torn and
broken and many coats and dresses ripped
in the scrimmages that constantly occurred
later in the evening, but still the merry
makers maintained a Jolly spirit.
' The bands added fun to the fury by play
ing such airs as ,v Hot Time in the Old
Town To-night" and similar tunes. The
carnival will not be at an end until mid
night to-night as the management has de
cided to keep the Magic Circle open and
also all the shows. A vaudeville show will
be given in the Circle and the other side
shows will also be open.
THE WEEK'S VISITORS.
Nearly One Hundred Thousand. People
Came to the City.
The figures given out by Union Station
officials regarding arrivals In the city for
the week are as follows:
Monday and Tuesday, 10.G0Ö; Wednesday,
12.1M; Thursday, ,000; Friday, 12,uw; total,
This is not an estimate, but Is said to be
based upon the returns of conductors of
the various trains. The thousands that
came in on Interurban electric lines and
drove to the city must be added to this to
tal to place the figures covering the number
of visitors in the last week.
On Thursday, Roosevelt day, by far more
people came to Indianapolis than on any
one day in its history. The largest crowd,
with the exception, was during the G. A. R.
Encampment, when there were 25,(KX vis
itors. The magnitude of the crowd can
more properly be reckoned by the gatemen
at the Union Station. Thursday night the
Jam was unprecedented. During the en
campment three double and two single
gates were operated; Thursday night seven
double gates and the two single gates were
not sufficient to let the people throu&b to
their trains, and many entered the tracks
at either end of the station. The police min
at these places were unable to hold the
crowd back, and It was so dense that trains
were moved in the sheds with difficulty.
All the day force was used Thursday
night and last night, besides the large force
of extra men for this particular occasion.
All are nearly worn out. Thursday night
they worked till almost 2 o'clock yesterday
morning, got up at 6 o'clock and stayed
on till about 2 this morning.
The comparatively small crowd that left
the Union Station last night indicates that
there are several thousand visitors in the
city for to-day. Station Master Lewis says
the crowd was below expectation. The day
force had been retained for night duty,
but all were not needed. A great many
went home, but the people came in bodies,
so that a crush was avoided, and instead
of a Jam, there was a continuous stream
pouring into the sheds.
o Mean Yet of Knowing Whether
There Will De a Deficit.
The ultimate financial result of the car
nival was last night very" much of a ques
tion. F. J. Scholz said It was Impossible
to give a fair account of the expenses in
curred, nor could any estimate bo mado
upon the receipts of the Bostock shows of
which the carnival management is to have
20 per cent.
At the close of business Thursday night
the receipts at the magic circle gates were
53.900. The association's share of the re
ceipts from the three attractions con
nected with the magic circle was $850, this
being one-half of the gate admissions to
At eleven o'clock last night the number
of tickets to the magic circle sold at the
box office numbered 12,190, this being the
actual count at five of the ticket windows
and estimated for the one other window.
Those in charge say they have no mean.3
at present of knowing what the expense
bills will be and any statements of the
amount are only guess work. The records
have been kept but they have not been con
fined to the management of one man and
the figures cannot now be obtained. All
statements as to deficits or profits were

F. J. Scholars Explanation.
F. J. Scholz, a member of the carnival
pass committee. Is much exercised over the
attack made upon him by an afternoon
newspaper, charging him with a display of
favoritism in the matter of disposing of
press tickets to the Bostock entertain
ments. Mr. Scholz declared, last night,
that he is perfectly innocent of any fault
in the matter. He said that Mr. Jesse
Webb, press agent of the carnival, was in
structed to learn how many tickets each
newspaper would require, whereupon the
order would be promptly filled. This, Mr.
Scholz states, was done and he now. holds
receipts signed by the city editors of the
various papers, showing each to have re
ceived a like amount of tickets.

THE BALL NOT A SUCCESS
OXLY FORTY COUPLES TOOK PART
IN THE GRAND MARCH.
Tecnmieh Impersonated by Attorney
John Lyendecker Counter At
tractions Too Mach.
The Tecumseh Carnival masque ball,
given under the auspices of the Red Men
for the benefit of the Fall Festivities So
ciety, at Germania Hall, last night, was
a sore disappointment to Its managers.
It was confidently expected that the un
masking of Tecumseh would prove a big
drawing card, and the committee having
the ball In charge looked for a crush, but,
despite all the advertising and the hard
work of the committee to make the ball a
success, but thirty-four couples took part
In the grand march. The dance programme
was . not begun until nearly 11 o'clock. It
was thought that the great counter at
traction of the masquers In the streets was
keeping the crowd away from the dance,
and it was hoped that the attendance would
be materially Increased when the masquers
had tired of their sport, but the fond hope
of the committee was not realized, and
besides those who took part in the grand
march there were not to exceed twelve
other couples that put In an appearance.
The hall was beautifully decorated with
flags and the carnival colors. Just previ
ous to the announcement of supper, Te
cumseh and his squaw, who were about
the only Indians in the hall, took oft their
masks and were introduced to one another
for the first time elnce their advent into
Tecumseh was found to be no less a per
son than John Leyendecker, of this city,
but as his identity had become generally
known during the last few days, there
was little surprise evinced In the discov
ery. Tecumseh's squaw was metamor
phosed into Frank Ivory, also of this city,
and the supposed mystery was forever set
at rest. hen Tecumseh removed the
mask from his face, he turned the key to
the city, with which he had been presented
on his arrival, over to II. C. Prehm, who
represented Tishimingo Tribe, No. 10, of
the Order of Red Men, and in the future
it will be kept by the lodge as a souvenir
of Indianayolls's first carnival.
In presenting the key to Mr. Prehm. Te
cumseh told of the many strange things
he had seen In Indianapolis during his
brief visit, speaking of the wagons without
horses, the wigwams that were piled on
top of one another until they almost
reached the sky, the ability of the pale
face to talk with his brother many moons
away, and other strange and startling
things which he said he did not under
stand. He finally thanked his pale face
brothers for the kindness that had been
shown him and retired from the ballroom,
promising to be back again In a hundred
