THRONGTURNSOUTFOR (AST DAY OF THE Fl % Unusually Large Crowd At tracted by the Exhibits at Rockville. fc'peeisl Correspondence of The Star. ROCKVILLE. Md.. September 2, IP 10. A fine racing program and delightful weather brought out an unusually large crowd for the-closing day of the Rock ville fair. The* big attendance today was also due. It Istthought, to the fact that many of those who usually attend but one day -had their pleasure marred yes terday by the heavy rain of the after noon and came back-today to make up for it. Although the total receipts of the fair will not be known for several days, there !s not much doubt that the exhibition has been a financial success. Had the heavy rain yesterday come earlier in the day it would have played havoc with the attendance and put the association in a big financial hole, but the downpour did not begin until after the big crowd had put up the price and entered the In closure. Prominent in yesterday's big crowd were Bralnard H. Warner, jr., and David J Lewis, republican and democratic can didates, respectively, for Congress in this district. They arrived on the grounds when the crowd was at its height and were immediately surrounded by their re spective friends, who showered congratu lations upon them upon their success in Tuesday's primaries. They put In an hour or two shaking hands with old friends and forming new acquaintances, and seemed to enjoy themselves. Both candidates expressed themselves as confi dent of winning at the November elec tion. Several English cucumbers which are being exhibited in the main exhibition hall by Joseph R. Freeman of Washing ton have attracted much attention. They measure about a foot and a half in length each. The Bacing. A few minutes before the time for starting the first race yesterday afternoon rain began falling heavily and converted the track Into such a sea of mudNhat the harness events had to be postponed until today. The running events?a mile dash and a six-furlong affair?were run according to program. The slx-furlong event was captured by Helen B., which led all the way, but had to be hard ridden to beat Lucille R., which moved up rapidly In the stretch. Flat Creek won the mile dash without difficulty. He led practically all the way and finished a length In front of Helen B.. which ran a splendid race In view of its being her second start of the day.

UNITED STATES MARINES ARE TO LEAVE NICARAGUA Withdrawal Ordered in View of Restoration of Order in Republic, Recognising that order is being restored In Nicaragua, the United 8tatea govern ment today ordered the withdrawal of the American marines from Bluefields. They will be taken to the Isthmian Canal Zone, their regular station. The presence of American marines on Nicaragua soil led to one of the most serious complications of the struggle be tween the Madris and Estrada forces on the eastern coast. They were landed to protect American property and Ameri can lives, according to the State Depart ment. Madrix claimed the United States violated the neutrality laws of nations in landing them on Nlcaraguan soil and prohibiting his proposed attack on Blue fields and the blockade of the port. The removal of the marines now at Bluefields. about one hundred in number has been intrusted to Capt. Cooper of the Marietta, in command of the naval forces in the vicinity of Bluefields. The cruisers Tacoma and Marietta are available for the movement Her. Br. Kelvin the Chief Speaker. Rev. Dr. William A.
