V X ALL ELKDOM TO ATTEND The "Hello Bill" Crowd Was Very Much in Evi dence and of Course There Was Something Doing All the Time. ENORMOUS CROWD TOOK IN SIGHTS Aside From the Elks the Harness Events Were the Main Attraction and These Were All That Could Be Desired. The attendance at the fair yester day was much greater than that of the day before. Notwithstanding there was no particularly startling harness event the big crowd was interested eery minute, with a kaleidoscopic program of mixed events. It was Elks' day and right royally did the antlered visitors furnish merriment for the entire assemblage. Aside from the Elks the two most novel and en tertaining features were the chariot race and the parade of the Sixth cav alry squadron and regimental band The Elks program began with a mon ster parade, the largest demonstration ever made in Arizona by any fra ternal organization. Then came a long array of comedy and racing events on the inside track under the direction of C. K. Pishon that were alternated with the program num bers on the big track. It was one grand afternoon of miscellaneous joy. The program began with a parade of exhibition live stock, around the inner track. The harness races soon began, with the Cavalry band making merry music from the stand, while the Elks were assembling behind tho stand in their respective delegations -At-the proper time they crossed to the inner track marching in four col umns, almost circled it and then countermarched back. Beside the straggling Elks in line at the most convenient places there were eight big companies assembled by delega tions with Phoenix No. 335 and the Indian band leading, and that delega tion alone looked like an army. The others in order, each bearing a ban ner with Its name and number pla carded, were: Middletown. N. Y. No. 1097; Los Angeles No. 99, a big com pany: Prescott 330. ditto; Central City 557; Bisbee C71; Tucson 3S5, led by a bard; Yuma 47C, including a lot of "Elkesses"; Globe 4S9, carrying jap anese parasois and vociferous with a booster yell; the parade concluding with the visiting excursionists from San Diego, both men and women, ac companied by their own orchestra and their friendly songs. After the coun ter march the entire parade lined up in front of the grandstand for re view 'and was given a rousing cheer. The chariot race was a thriller and was won by Dr. Sinard of Pueblo who drove a team of three sorrels and a black. In a blue harness, draw ing a blue chariot, himself in a cos tume of blue. The black horse is the famous Chimney Sweep with a record of 1:38. E. J. Levengood of Pomona was equipped with a team of four prancing sorrels and was picked for the winner by a majority of the grandstand, his restless steeds looking as though they would not submit to a defeat. They were in red harness, drawing a red chariot, the driver being attired also in red. But the doctor got the pole In the drawing and kept it. There was nev er a chance for the other man to Iass him though both teams ran furi ously and whizzed by the turns on the little track which they twice cir cled, with almost reckless daring. The race was won in 1:53. There were two corking fine run ning races, one being the Elks Derby for a purse of $300. It was a mile run on the big mile track and tho start was made with a field of horses The race was won in i?4iu Uv -ameo. -arKer jockey. Ionia was second. Little Jane third. The horses .were well bunched on the back stretch and for a time it was any body's money, but six of them could not get inside of it at all. The other race was a three quarter mile run for $200. It also had a field of nine starters and was won by Prince Winters, Parker jockey, in 1:4G. Sobado was second. Myrtle Queen third. .Late in the afternoon the dress parade of the Sixth cavalry squadron occurred on tho Inner field. The four troops of soldiers on bav horses, drilling maneuvering like machine work, with sabers flashing in the sunlight, and following the bugle calls and the martial music of the regi mental band which was mounted on white chargers, made an Inspiring spectacle. The squadron was under the command of Major Heard who may well feel proud of the gallant lads who respond so beautifully to the orders of himself and his officers. Other features of the day were a race between two girls on horseback, (Continued oh Page 4) TURNED OUT THE 616 FAIR POLICE CHIEF PAID FOR FALSE ARREST Damage Suit at San Francisco Involv ing $25,000 Has Been Settled Out of Court.

Nov. 7. -Samuel Gom pers, president of the American Fed eration of Labor, was today a wit ness before the employers' liability and workmen's compensation commis sion. He gave a general endorsement of the plan for compensating employes of the Interstate roads for Injuries sustained, but expected a provision making each company liable for dam ages sustained on it's own road. Gompers argued that all roads should contribute to a general insur ance fund against accidents. Gompers hastened to add he did rot believe courts as a rule are ac tuated by improper motives, but he said, the environment and education of most Judges are such as to render them incapable of correctly determin ing questions concerning Industrial life. H. E. Core, vice-chairman of the Joint board of eastern railroad lines for the Brotherhood of Locomo tive Firemen and Engineers, urged that the entire burden of damages be borne by the railroads. This, he con ceded, would force rates which in the end would put the burden on th" public where, he said, it rightfully belonged. Other prominent officials of the public service corporation em ployes organizations addressed the commission. WASHINGTON. D. C. Nov. The difficulties likely to be en- countered in the administration of tho proposed workingmen's compensation law were emphasized today when President Gompers, of the American Federation of Labor, took issue with members of the employers' liability and workingmen's compensation com mission regarding the awarding tri bunal to bo created. In the main he endorsed the commission's plan for insuring railroad employes against accident but when he took up the question of administration he ad vanced the theory that did not meet tha approval of some members of the commission. He insisted that the tribunal consist of three members, one representing the employes, one the employers and the third to bo a physician of standing chosen by the other two. The commission has not formulated a provision governing this Important part of the law but Sen ator Sutherland and Representative Moon indicate a leaning toward the selection of award boards by the fed eral courts. Sutherland pointed out the Gompers plan would be In effect a system of arbitration and said the third man on the board would be the arbiter, while the other two would be merely attorneys for the opposing sides.

Places in the Elections Which Were Held Yesterday. WOODROW WILSON LOSES HIS GRIP In New Mexico the Repub licans Have Elected a Majority of Legislature and Will Get Two U. S. Senators. Elections held yesterday in many states and cities throughout the coun try show varying results without any Indication of a widespread wave of public sentiment. In Massachusetts Governor Foss, democrat, claims re election by a reduced plurality of ibout 12,000, but his election is not conceded and the result is still in doubt and will be so until practically all complete returns are received. New York state elected a republican as sembly, thus depriving Governor DIx, democrat, of the support he had hith erto received in both branches of the legislature. The present assembly has a democratic majority of 24. The new one will have a republican majority of upwards of 30. In New York city Tammany's strengtli Is materially re duced. Its candidates for judicial and county offices are elected by greatly reduced pluralities. In Brooklyn the fusion judicial and county candidates were successful with perhaps one exception. A demo cratic congressman was elected in the Second Kansas district to fill the place of Representative Mitchell, re publican, deceased. In Kentucky James B. McCreery, democrat, is el ected governor by a large majority. A democratic legislature also Is assured, which assures the choice of Congress man Ollie James as United States senator. The first election held in the new state of New Mexico is still in doubt. Both democratic and repub lican candidates are cleaiming the vic tory on meager returns. Indications point to a republican legislature, which will elect United States sena tors. New Jersey elected a legislature which will continue to support Gover nor Woodrow Wilson, democrat, but the legislative majorities are still in doubt. Early returns from the state election in Maryland are inconclusive as between Arthur P. Gorman, demo crat, and Philip L. Goldsborough, re publican. Mississippi elected a dem ocratic governor and legislature by large majorities. Early returns from Rhode Island indicate it has re-elected Governor Pothier, republican, over Louis A. Waterman, democrat, by in creased majorities. OHIO IS DEMOCRATIC. COLUMBUS, Nov. 7. The demo crats swept into power in three of the largest cities in Ohio today, Columbus, Cincinnati and Cleveland returning decisive democratic pluralities. The feature of the elections throughout the state was the large socialistic vote. In Columbus the socialist candidate for mayor ran a close rare against Mayor Marshall, republican nominee, for sec ond place, while George J. Karb, dem ocrat, was elected by 5,000 plurality. In Cincinnati Mayor Louis Schwab, candidate for re-election with repub lican endorsement, was defeated by Henry T. Hunt, democrat, by about 5,000. In Toledo Brand Whitiock, In dependent, is apparently elected for a fourth term by a plurality in the neighborhood of 2,000. FUSIQN SUCCEEDS. NEW YORK. Nov. 7.

JOHN HAYS HAMMOND WANTS A RIG NAVY "In Time of Peace Prepare for War," Is the Doctrine of Mining Engineer. CINCINNATI. Nov. 7. Reiterating his theory of peace, but advocating the fortification of the Panama canal. President Taft today delivered his principal address before the opening session of the national conference of the American Society for Judicial Set tlement of International Disputes here today. He urged ratification of the peace treaties between the United States and France and England. The conference opened with an address by John Hays Hammond. "In time of peace prepare for war," was Hammqnd's opening sentence. He said the great Christian nations of the world today are spending for armed peace upwards of one and a half bil lion dollars annually. Present con ditions, he said, preclude the possi bility of international disarmament and render extremely Improbable even the limitation of armaments. "The ultimate solution of this great problem is unquestionably the estab lishment of a permanent court of ar bitration," he said, "but this cannot be done except as we solve, step by step, the intricate problems confront ing us. In Anglo-American and Franco-American treaties a long step has been taken in the right direction. While it is true that the senate has not ratified these treaties, the pres sure of popular demand will influence favorable action at an early date. o RODGERS ASSUMES ROLE OF PROPHET Says Trip From Atlantic to Pacific Will Soon be Made in Three Days.

"'I! vjiij LUii illicit i auwa l it lv5 i j cjvwm train. "My trip which was seemingly im possible a year or two ago," he said, "Is only one of many which soon will come. I am not idly dreaming when I say that within a few years the aero plane will be so perfected that it will be the fastest means of communication between the Pacific and Atlantic, ex cept telegraph and telephone wires. The engine is the only thing which stands in the way and according to the ipresent rate of improvement, it will be perfected soon, so that by equip ping the machine with two, and alter nating their use, the trip will be made with only a few stops, at the most Im portant cities. The present machines have speed but not stamina The ma chine to make such a flight I believe Is already in sight." o CHANCE FOR FLYERS Rodgers' Manager Offers $8,000 for Better Record Than That Made By His Man. PASADENA, Nov. 7. Rodgers' bus iness manager, Edward Merritt, to day offered a bonus of $S,000 to any aviator who beats Rodgers' record of forty-nirie days across the continent. Rodgers spent today visiting the schools and talking to the children about his trip. A policeman was in stalled today to guard over the aero plane because of the Inslstance of many persons to carry off parts of the machine as souvenirs.

MARCHING ON SACHED CITY Force of Troops Has Ap proached Within Seventy Miles of Chinese Capital, Which Is Expected Soon to Fall. RETREAT PREPARED FOR THE EMPEROR There Is Some 111 Feeling Against the Foreigners and the Legation Is Tak ing Steps to Insure Their Safety. PEKIN, Nov. 7. Legations believe that the end of the Manchu dynasty is in sight. There seems to be no hope of the saving of even a nominal throne power. Provinces north of the Yiang Tse river are now declaring for a republic. The only force of Man chu troops large enough to cope with the loca; situation anywhere Is in Pekln. Indications are tonight that the capital will be surrounded before many days by the Chinese soldiers. Where the court will take refuge in that event is a matter of much specu lation. Troops are guarding the tun nel along the route from Pekin to Chang Klan Kau and they are ex pected to dynamite the tunnel after the emperor and family pass through. Reports receded here are that Chang Klan Kau is unsafe. The national as sembly is holding a meeting without a quorum, but certain members are endeavoring to maintain a nucleus. Prince Chang's palace seems desert ed. It is believed that he is in the forbidden city. American soldiers with a supply of skyrockets were sent ! to each outlying compound tonight. ' ,t Sieved cond aack -111 be made on foreigners, but there are many in the city who are opposed to them. The legation has advised Americans and others to come into the legation quarter or seek other places of safety. The government proposed today to cut the Pekin-Tlen Tsln railroad beyond Fengt Tai to prevent additional troops arriving. It is expected that the British minister. Sir John Jordan, protested on the grounds that Great Britain is entitled to operate the railway in the event of suspension of service in accordance with the old agreement. Consequent ly the line is still open. Chinese re port that the Kalgan railway is in the hands of the revolutionists. A rebel force is reported proceeding ap parently in the direction of Pekin at a point on the railway about seventy miles from the capital. Hundreds of carts left Pekin today for Jehol and 200 mounted Manchus proceeded in the same direction later. The Chinese are preparing the way for the flight of the court. Manchu troops here number 11,000, imperial guards 7 police 4.000, banner police 5,000. o HEN WOOD GETS A STAY. ,500, DENVER, Nov. 7.

Springer, a wealthy Den ver banker, in his suit for divorce. The writ operates as a stay of execu tion pending the hearing for a new trial. o OPPENHEIMER MUST DIE. SAN RAFAEL. Nov. 7.

SEVEN 60 OUT E Twelve Men Were in the Jury Box in McNamara Case Yesterday Morning; Only Five Were There at Night. DAY ENLIVENED BY LEGAL SPATS Counsel Have Begun Use of Peremptory Challenges and It Is Possible Few More Months May Com plete Jury. LOS' ANGELES, Nov. 7. The jury box in the McNamara murder trial was filled today by jurymen accepted as to case and peremptory challenges were exercised by both sides. To night but five of the twelve remained and the defense reserved the right in challenge some of these tomorrow If It desires. Should it not do so and challenge tomorrow it will not be allowed to do so later on. Today, second day of the fifth week of the trial was marked by tho loss by the defense of every point con tended for. Five men are left in the box: Robert Bain, carpenter, who organized the first labor union in Los Angeles: F. D. Green, orange grower. Byron Lisk, retired mill own er, Sam Mendenhail, orange grower and William F. Clark. Challenges were exercised alternately, the state leading off with Frank Frakes. Eliz abeth Lake's rancher, because he ad mitted acquaintance with LeCompte Davis, attorney for the defense. After excusing one other because he was formerly an officer in the tailor's un ion the state announced it would ex excise no further challenges at pres ent. The first point the defense lost was when the challenge by the state of Talesman George W. Morton, because he contradicted himself during his examination was allowed. Darrow. in an impassioned plea declared the challenge was prompted by the fact that Morton had read the "Appeal to Reason," a socialist publication. The defense's challenge of Talesman Dr. Case on the same ground was denied, and an effort to fill the jury box after each challenge was also lost by the defense when the state cited precedents of this state to show that the usual custom Is to exhaust per emptories first. It was stated the defense will excuse one of the men remaining and possibly two, but not more. STRIKE MAY SPREAD. CHICAGO. Nov. 7.
