BRINGS SANE JO1 City, Happy in Whirl c Diversions, Forgets ?o -Miss Powder. WEATHER MAN AIDS IN HOLIDAY PLAN Music and Speeches in All Boi oughs Tombs Joins in Celebration. Well, it's pretty s.,.e to s*?y Ne York never saw suih .1 Fourth. Oi of all the Vis of then since the gra; headed old man yanked the bell roi ?o lustily ?n the unpretentious, litt brick building in Philadi never wss um- of them exactly like th ?'ne Kathir Knickerbockl i celebrate vesterday. Even the weather man Wl safe and sane It ?as such a nice. easy, delightfi Fourth, characterized chiefly by an al most utter lack of that form of hys tena which ordinarily seizes America i-.ties when the time comes to eel?1 brate the birth of the Republic. True.the trains for the se?an? the country districts were filled, btl none of the passengers jostied eacl other rudely or stepped on one m.oth er*a feet and if they did, they apolo gized in the most startling fashion. The Demon Kum was looked on wit as much disfavor as a British suffra gette at the Court of St, Jam. Mothers allowed then children t ???'ander out alone in the morning, con rident that they would return in th evening with all the legs and arms al lotted them by natut.-. The air was enchanting, and the sof sunshine seemed to radiate straight t New Yorkers' hearts. Yes. it v. a* Mend day. And when, last night darkness came, and the great city pu on her jewels of light, the peopl stretched themselves lazily with at air of satisfaction at such a Fourth. Of course, alter all it's really th little folk that know most about th Fourth and what it stand- for; al about Valley Forge and Nathan Hal and Francis Scott Key and the battl of Lexington and Betsey Roas, Evei the tots whose fathers and mother were born across the seas know mor about the great day than the averag giownup. For instance, in I'ubli School JIT. at Mulberry and Bayard ata a little Italian girl stood proudly ui yesterday and lea.! her original com position on "Our Flag." She bowed t< the applause and turned around to pic! j? baby sister off the floor, and. catch ing another toddler by the hand, wen back to the tiny tenement flat when -he lived with eight sisters and broth - re and her father, a blacksmith, an. where she wrote -Our Flag." All over the city the school ehildrei celebrated?in The Bronx, in th? crowded East Side, in dear old Green w;ch Village, in Washingon Heights all through Brooklyn, on Staten Islam -oh. everywhere! One great group ol more than a thousand stood in Fon '?V'ashington Park on "tiie very ?poi w here George Washington's raggc men had encampe,?. And there were celebrations in man; .?jeer places. Ir.-ide the Tomb there were music and dancing. Th? chaplain, the Rev. George Sanderson had a big talking mach.ne placed on ti,e fourth, tier, and as it played,many a 760 men prisoners joined in singing the music. Later Dr. Sand, t - son had the machine set up in the ?'?omen'? prison, and the cell doors were opened, while the women danced in the corri. \ le from the aviators. Mayor M-'-hel probably travelled as any one else. His motor car scuttled all over the place like a great red beetle. From the time he the flag draped City Hall, in the fore? noon, until last night, when he m pr-cted the flaminsr parka, he was goin? minute. Dancing is the erar- it had tl ga!a day. Everywhere theVe v. as dancing. Iri the parks the little men and women tripped in the picturesque folk dances; in the restaurant-; and in the pavilions hundreds and hund? fair ones swung and swayed arms of care-:'- le the brass of the band- crashed and the bass drums boomed in lieu of the can non of other yi I DEATH HOUSE RINGS TO SOUNDS OF MERRIMENT Condemned and Others Amon?

"Congress shortly thereafter enacted n bill carrying this decimation into ef? fect.

Obstacle? ?rr being ?neonntered which had not been anticipated by the Villa represent? three, One of these obstacles was the in Junction suit tiled in Kl Paso by Car raasistas to prevent a shipment of Carransa money from falling int? Villa's hand: Thi-. Villa men claim i- an svideace of bad faith on th? part of Carransa, who thus shows a di? trust of Villa. The peace conference. which is purely military, entered ac tivelj upon its work to-?lay, but accom? plished little. Optimism ha? given wat to pessimism on both ?ides, and covert threats are being made that uni??? this or that is ??greed to there will be renewed trouble. The most signit'cant report in cir.*c lation i- that (ieneral Villa has order?
