The largest attendance of .the four-day meet witnessed yesterday's closing wvenUS. many of the out-of-town e.xhibitors leav ing the city last night. Francis M. jVare of New York, general manager, who caught a midnight train for New York, declared the show to have hern one of the best open air meets he had ever at tended. The opinion generally expressed by exhibitors and visitors was that the show far surpassed that of last year. It is announced that nine boxefs already have be.en engaged for next year's meet. Miss C'herbonnier kept the Judges con stantly running to her assistance during the few minutes she was on the tan bark, but in no instance was the proffer ed help made use of. Riding Bedminster, a horse owned by William F. Hitt, the plucky equestrienne met with her first mishap while taking the second hurdles. She held to the reins as the horse gained his feet after a hard fall, and was drag ged several feet. Horse Balks Again. Remounting, unassisted. Miss C'herbon nier took the next two Jumps, but Bed minster balked at the next to the last hurdle, throwing his rider heavily against the fence. The Judges hurried to the ?pot. but again Miss c'herbonnier mount ed without assistance. Bedmirister was urged over the hurdle, but stumbled, Miss <*herbonnier being thrown over his head and striking the bars of the last hurdle. Fortunately the horse did not entirely | lose his footing, as. in the short space | between the last two hurdles. Miss Cher bonnier would have had little opportunity to extricate herself, and doubtless would have been seriously injured. ?While the crowd looked on breathlessly at the narrow escapes encountered in such rapid order. Miss Cherbonnier laughed throughout the series of acci dent*. Mounting Bedminster a final time, she ptlt the horse over the last jump without difficulty. Miss C'herbonnier was not a winner in the ladies' hunters class, but her pluck made a big hit with the crowd, which applauded her repeatedly. Several Other Spills. There Were several spills in the hunt ing events of the afternoon, none of them, however, being of a serious nature. Miss Jeannette Allen, daughter of Maj. Henry T. Allen, received a hard tumble when Yellowstone Regent fell in clear ing the second hurd e. Miss Allen fell in almost exactly the same place Friday. W R. A belt's Aristocrat fell while com peting in the class fur Corinthian hunt ers, but, aside from receiving a shaking up. his rider was not hurt. In the same class. Miss Kitty Smith, riding David Grey, made a circuit of the outer hurdles twice, although she was required to make the circuit but once. The horse started on the second trip around the arena before he could be turned in the direction of fhe hurdles in the center of the tanbark. He took the barriers easily, the unusual performance winning applause. Get Many Blue Bibbons.

LEE MAILS THOUSANDS OF WILSON CIRCULARS 4 Democratic Campaign in Montgom ery Cou^Jjf Ends With Clark iffeif Confident. Special Correopoad?nre of Thf Star. ROCKVILLE, Md., May 4, 3912? State Senator Blair I^ee has sent out thousands of circular letters to Demo crats of this county urging them to sup port Woodrow Wilson for the presi dential nomination ? at next Monday's primary election. He declares in the letter that Mr- Wilson is the strongest man that could be nominated, and that he is the great anti-boss governor1 of the I'nited States should make him the logi cal candidate to oppose either President Taft or Col. Roosevelt. The letter con cludes:* "I hope you will go to the polls on Monday next and give your support to the candidatf you deem the strongest under all conditions which confront our party, a?d that you will use your in fluence to keep the voters' minds and feelincs on the question of selecting a presidential candidate without reference to any sort of factionalism at this time of great party duty and great party op portunity." Many of Senator Lee's former lieuten ants in this county are not with him in the light he is making for Mr. Wilson, but have sided with the Peter boys, who are heading tho tight for Speaker Clark. The contest between these erstwhile friendly leaders Is of absorbing interest to the p. ople of the county generally, as it is looked upon as somewhat in the na ture of a test of strength between the Peters, on on6 hand, and Senator Tjee and his chief lieutenant, William H. La mar, on the other. The indications are that Speaker Clark will easily carry the county. Robert B. Peter said today that he expected Mr. Clark to carry fifteen of the sixteen precincts of the county, and "said he would ilOt be surprised If all sixteen went for him. WIFE ACCUSES HUSBAND. Albert E. Guthridge Arrested on Charge of Attacking Spouse. Mrs. Minnie B. Guthridge of Rochester, N. Y., reported to the police yesterday that she had been attacked by her hus band, Albert E.

She said she and her husband have been separated for about a year and that she came here to see her children. She thought her husband was In Pittsburgh, ?he stated, but when she went to 1118 9th street northwest to see one of her chil dren she met her husband. Mrs. Guthridge alleges that her hus band bruised her face end scratched her arm. She will appear in the Police Court tomorrow as a witness against him. PLEADS FOB SON IN COURT. Counterfeiter, Sentenced, Says Youth Was Not to Blame. BOSTON. May 4.?"Give me whatever sentence you like, but please spare my son, judge, for he is not to blame. What ever he did was under my direction and orders." This was the plea made today by Pat rick J. MoGrath of Brockton, who was sentenced to seven years in the federal penitentiary at Atlanta, Ga., for counter* felting, by Judge Dodge in the United States district court. The son, Joseph A. McGrath. a seven teen-year-old youth, who helped his father manufacture countlrfelt half dol lars. had his case placed (fa file after the father had pleaded for /he boy. The older McGrnth confessed that he had been making spurious eoji for six years. SIMPLE RITES MARK COL ASTOR'S BURIAL His Casket is Placed in Vault Directly Above That of His Father. i NEW YORK, May 4.-The body of Col. John Jacob Astor was laid to rest today with simple ceremonies in the Astor vault in Trinity cemetery on Washington Heights. It was brought here on a special train from Rhlnecliffe-on-the Hudson, where funeral services were held at noon In the little rough stone Episcopal Church of the Messiah, of which Col. Astor was for sixteen years a warden. ^hese services, also of the simplest kind, were conducted by the Rev. Ernest C. Saunders, pastor of the church, and the Rev. William T. Man ning, rector of Trinity Church here, and were attended by relatives and friends of ! Col, Astor, residents of Rhinecliffe, to? gether with employes of Col: Astor at Rhinecliffe and at Newport, about 100 in all. Former Wife Sends Wreath. V ' " * All the ohurch bells In the pretty Hud son village .tolled as the funeral cortege took its way from, the Astor mansion to the little ohurch, whose altar was banked with tai.ny floral offerings, including, it was said, a wreath of red roses ffom the | Prince of Wales.

Astor's children; Mrs. Madeline Force Astor, his widow; her sister. Kath erine Force, and Mr. and Mrs. William H. Force, her father and mother. Mrs. Ava Willing Astor, the colonel's former wife, did not attend the cere monies, but sent a wreath. The Rev. Dr. Manning said the final words committing Col. Astor's body to the earth. The casket was placed in the vault directly above that of his father. BIKES BECOME POPULAR. Nineteen Thefts Committed Within a Week, Five Yesterday. Bicycle thieves have resumed activity since the weather became pleasant for riding, a large number of thefts having been reported yesterday. It is deemed probable by the police that some of the wheels are being secreted to be shipped to some other city later. Five wheels were stolen yesterday, making a total of nineteen that have dis appeared in a week. < "If bicycle owners would lock their wheels," remarked a policeman last night, "they ' probably would not get robbed. Spch precaution would certainly put a check on thefts, and it is not much trouble to the owner." WILD WEST AND FAS EAST. Combination Show Dne in Washing ton the 27th. Instant.

ED CALLAHAN, FEUDIST, SHOT FROM AMBUSH % Ten Bullets Take Effect in Body?Bloodhounds to Go on Trail. LEXINGTON, Ky.. May 4.?Ed Cal lahan. former sheriff of Breathitt coun ty, and noted in the feud troubles of that county, was shot from ambush and probably fatally wounded as he stood in the door of his store at Crocketts ville, twenty miles from Jackson, to day. Ten shots took effect in his body. Immediately after Callahan was shot the mountain side was searched by a party of friends, who, while they found the hiding place of the assassins, failed to learn anything as to their identity. Callahan had so many enemies through out the mountain section that it is a hard matter to suspect from what fac tion the slayers came. Wilson Callahan, a son, telegraphed to Lexington for bloodhounds with which to track the would-be assassins. The special train with the hounds left shortly after noon. Becord as Feudist. ; Ed Callahan has several children. One of these is Wilson Callahan, who several years a go killed his uncle, John Deaton, when the latter attacked the elder Cal lahan, and almost cut his arm off with a butcher knife. Callahan was prominent in the Hargis feud faction which was charged with the assassinations of Dr. B. D. Cox In April, lV)2; James Cockrell In July, 1902, and James B. Marcum, May 3, 1903. He was tried for alleged complicity (in these mur ders, but was acquitted. Atxm four years ago a feud broke out between the Deaton and Callahan fac tions. Both clans descended upon Jack son and for some days kept the town in a state of terror. Finally citizens at peace with both sides interceded and se cured the signatures of John Deaton and 13d Callahan to a peace pact, which so far as known has been kept. WHITE SOX DON'T APPEAR STRONGER THAN LAST YEAR If Jimmy Callahan's Team Runs One-Two Three It Will Be Due to Superhuman Work of Big Ed Walsh? He "Is Right." DETROIT, Mfch., May 4 ?Spltball King Edward Walsh Is "in pink" early this year. Walsh is generally not at his best till the middle of May. Walsh never pitched better ball against Detroit than on last Saturday, when he shut out the Tigers, 2 to 0. His spitball was under perfect control, and he had wonderful speed. The condition of Walsh and his dispo sition to work all he can will be the most important factors in Chicago's fight for the pennant Walsh is certain to keep the disposition, and if he can maintain the condition that he had on Navin Field last Saturday the Sox will depend on him to keep them up in front. If the White Sox finish one-two-three this year Walsh can claim the credit. The Chicago outfit has improved little either batting or fielding over last year. Rath, at the present time, appears to have filled a hole at second, but Chicago Is palpably weak at short and first. "Buck" Weaver, who brought a good base ball reputation from the Pacific coast, is an erratic fielder and fair hitter, while Zelder Is not fitted for first base. In the Chicago outfield Callahan and Bodie are of the first class, but right field is the spot in need of care and attention. Callahan has not seen enough in Matty Molntyre this year to give the former Tiger that job; Jacques Fournier is a good hitter, but miserable fielder, so Cal lahan cannot use him, while Collins is not up to the average. Chicago is weak in backstops. Billy Sullivan, one of the best in history when in his prime, is growing old. and Block cannot be called a good backstop. Chicago came from the southern camp better trained than Detroit. The White Sox have the bulge on. the majority of clubs in condition. A? soon as the other teams round Into their best playing form Cal lahan will have hard work, and most of it is certain to fall on Walsh. The labor required of him will be almost super human, but Walsh comes as near being superhuman as any man in base ball, past or present. FIRE STARTS SMALL PANIC. Blaze in Building in Baltimore Causes Loss of $20,000. BALTIMORE, May 4.?Fire ,wh:ch started this afternoon in a four story building on Stiles street this city, occupied as a junk shop, and which quickly spread to adjoining buildings, re sulted in a general alarm of fire and caused a small panic among the resi dents of the thickly populated neigh borhood. Quantities of hou&ehold effects were moved into the streets, but no one was injured in the rush to get out of nearby buildings. The loss was $20,000. . TWO BANKS TO MERGE. Consolidation to Be Ratified by Di rectors at Special Meeting. The directors Qf the Mercantile Bank, at a special meeting yesterday afternoon, voted to call a special meeting of the bank's stockholders next week, to con firm the consolidation of that institution with the Union Savings Bank, which con solidation was decided upon recently. The Union Savings Bank, by the ar rangement which will be ratified by the stockholders of the Mercantile Bank, will take over the assets of the latter insitu tion and assume its liabilities* Further announcement of changes, etc., will be made after the meeting of stock holders.
