All of Scranton and the Region Roundabout Took a Xny Oil to See the Horsemen and the Indians and the Hundred nnd One Other Inter esting Things That Colonel Cody Has Gotten Together Had to Stop Selling Tickets for Afternoon Per formance Shortly After 2 O'clock. There wast but one disappointment in connection with Iluffnlo Will's show yesterday the exhibition enclosure could not accommodate .all who wanted to attend the tifternoun per formance. This Is no press agent's "Jolly." but an actual fuel. Shortly after 2 o'clock the ticket wagon closed up and thousands of people had to be turned awny. It was one of the greatest show days .Scranton has ever known. H seemed as If the whole city nnd ull the country roundabout turned out en masse to see the parade In the morning and that nearly all who saw the parade followed It to the show grounds. It is estimated that over .",0.000 persons witnessed the two performances. I'nllke the occasion of Buffalo Bill's visit thrt'o years ago, when u veritable cloudburst occurred at night, the day nil through wus Ideal. It was one of those days when one Is In doubt ns to whether or not he should wear his light overcoat One very commendable thing that was very generally noticed In connec tion with the lateral features of the show was tile almost total absence of the festive fakir. The management will not allow them to follow the show and permanently employs a Plnkerton man, tho celebrated John Rogers, to look to the observance of this rule while he is about smelling out crooks. The red lemonade and peanut man Is not molested, of course. A show without them would not be a show. Of the performance given by Colonel Cody it might be said in the outset that Its title needs alteration. "Hough Riders' Congresr and Wild West" would be more appropriate, it would seem. The Rough Rider end of it so far surpasses the other that it clearly overshadows it. NEW FEATURES THE WEST. Once upon a time the Deadwood stage coach, the emigrant train and the set tler's cabin Incidents were thrllllngly Interesting, and without doubt they are that even yet to many, but to the spec tators taken as a whole, the congress of horsemen and the soldier evolutions Is by far the main feature. And what a feature this Is! The grand review of the "Rough Riders of the World," the Introductory number, Is In Itself worth the price of admis sion If considered only from the spec tacular point of view, without any con sideration, of Its educational side. Everything was there just as repre sented in the announcements: Indians, cowboys, Mexicans, Cossacks, Gauehos, Arabs, scouts, guides, and detachments of fully equipped cavalry from the armles.of America, England, Germany, Russia, Cuba and squads of Hawuiiaus, Porto Rteans and Filipinos. The Fili pinos attracted the most curiosity, but It was when the Roosevelt Rough Riders dashed Into view and circled about to their place in the big gioun of horsemen that thi enthusiasm was let loose. It was the first opportunity Scranton has had of showing Its ap preciation of these heroes and the as semblage proceeded to show it. There was no mistaking' that the applause was not Intended for mere circus per formers. The same might be said of the ovation which greeted Colonel Cody's appearance. The reproduction of the storming of San Juan hill was the most pictur esque and thrilling number on tho programme, and was especially Intcr estlns: because of the fact that most of the performers had actually par ticipated In the famous charge. In the attacking party were good-sized de tachments of the Rough Riders, Twenty-fourth infantry, Ninth and Tenth cavalry, Grimes' battery, Garcla's Cu ban scouts nnd cowboys in charge of the pack trains. EXCELLENT REPRODUCTION. They entered In marching order and after a short bivouac on tho arena dls appeared by an opposite exit. Then curtains at the far end of the exhibi tion quadrangle were removed disclos ing a block house and breast woiks manned with Spanish riflemen and ar tillery. The American soldiers came upon the scene from a side en trance In single file and deployed as skirmishers. A Spanish picket discovers them, fires his rifle and retreating be hind the breastworks gives the alarm. Then begins a terrific fuslla.de of rllle shots punctuated with the periodical rattle of the machine gun on the Ametlcan side and the boom of the cannon at tho block house. Men drop on all sides and are hurried to the rear on stretchers, but the American line advances slowly but firmly until within easy distance of the fortifica tion when with a wild yell they rush across the Intervening space, over tho embankment and driving the Spaniards pell niell ahead of them, tear down the red and gold and run up the stars nnd stripes. Another of the most Interesting fea tures Is the artillery drill by veterans from Captain Thorpe's Battery D.Fifth regiment, United States army. Tho quickness with which the guns were bundled and with which the men han dled themselves was a revelation to the civilian. Everything moed like clock work". AMERICAN CAVALRYMAN LEADS, In the horsemanship feats the Ameri can cavulryman was easily the peer of all the others. What the Cosacks did with the aid of heavy saddle, stir rups and foot and hand straps, the Yankee soldier duplicated or surpass ed on a horse devoid of all trur.plngd ONcept a bridle. The cowboys, of course, excelled In rough riding but they did not compare with tho boys In blue In fancy feats. One of tho feats performed by the cavalrymen was to mount ut full gallop from tho ground1 across one horse on to the back of another that was galloping along on the opposite side. And this was done with the aid of only the bridle and rein. The wotk of the Mexican lailat throwers, the expert shooting by lluf falo Hill, Annie Oultley and Johnnie Raker, tho drill by the English and German cavalry and the acrobatic work of a troupe of Arabs were the other ptlnelpal features. Tho typlcul "Wild Weft" features. 1 uuch as the Indian dances, tho buffalo hunt, the attack on the stage conch, the cowboy and Indian races and the like were better than ever before. All In all It was a great exhibition and deserving of the very generous pat ronage given It In this city. MANY SCHOOLS DISMISSED, Attendance Did Not Warrant Ses sions Being Held. Very few. If liny, of the publlo schools had more than one session yes terday and at some of them no session at all was held. The "circus day" rule Is that the principal of the building can use his own discretion as to whether or not the attendance war lants the schools being kept open. The attendance didn't warrant an after noon session u t any of the schools ns far us Superintendent Howell had heard and at only a. few of them was there, In the discretion of the princi pals, as would warrant even one ses sion. Superintendent Howell when seen yesterday afternoon didn't appear greatly vexed at the reports of "no session that come Into him from all quarters. "I would not want," he said, "to be quoted as saying that I give my approval to this thing of dismissing school to see u cltcus, but I will suv that 1 always see 'hopes' of a boy who will go without his breakfast live miles down the pike nt daybreak to meet the circus." GOOD POLICE RECORD. Very Few Arrests Were Hade by tho Police Yesterday Two Supposed Crooks Were Gathered In. Sernnton is not so bad to Judge fiom yesterday's police records. Up to mid night. 1" the central city, not a blngle arrest had been made for drunkenness and there was only one Inf.tance of Infraction of the peace that called for police interference. This was a case whole two Olyp'iant youths reached the wrong floor of E09 Center street and were kicked down stairs by the woman's husband. When the street was reached tin- Olyphant youths set upon the husband, the wife rushed to defend her defender and a general rnlx-up wus the result. Ser geant Reese G. Jones and Patrolmen Parry and Karius, ufter hearing tho stories of the belligerents and several of the early spectators decided that the Olyphunters were the offenders and took them to the station house Another remarkable thing Is that not a single case of picking pockets or other such work was reported, nnd the police w-re notified of only one lost child This was a 0-yeer-old boy named Clarence Moxley, of Dalton, who went to the show with bis uncle, a resident of this city, and then, ac cording to the story of som little boys with whom the lttl fellow had been playing, started to walk to his home In the country. The police had re ceived no word of nlm up to a late hour. Two alleged crooks, one of them a supposed pickpocket, and th-- other a cheap jewelry fakir, wero gathered in during the day. The first was arrest ed on Lacknwanua avenue while the parade crush wns on, by Detective Molr and Lieutenant Davis, He was spotted by John Rogers, the Plnkerton man, who accompanies t!u Huffalo P.ill show, and pointed out to the local police. Riding along Capouse avenue on a car yesterday at noon. Patrolman Lona Day, ho wns detailed on detective duty, saw F. II. Anthony, a local fakir, going Into a saloon. Suspecting that he was up to some game the officer Jumped off the car and followed him 111. Anthony sled up the detective for a "rube" and tiled to sell him his gold watch, singing the old sonjr about be ing stranded and so hard up fur money that he was willing to part with 1,1s $00 birthday present for SI'!. When searched ut the station hous a largo quantity of other "sold" Jewelry, such ns charms, chains, rings and the like, were found on the fakir's person. He was allowed to go upon making a de posit of $3 for his appearance In the morning. There Is very little fear alxmt headquarters that he will bo around to redeem the fiver. A fakir who was selling button and badges without a license and who re opened business after uclnjj once warned, was taken Into custody at Chief Kobling's order and locked up. He was released later uikui his prom ise to get out of town "HOOKS' " NIGHT T THE FAIR. Big Attendance and Big Receipts Attest Their Popularity. Despite the counter-attraction of a i Ireus the firemen's fair last night on the occasion of the Hook and Ladder company's inning had the largest at tendance since the opening night and It is estimated the returns will exceed those of any other night, not except ing the Phoenix night, when the high water mark was reached. The "Hooks' were honored with the largest escort that has us yet turned out. It in cluded the Niagara and Eagle com panies of Pittston; the Neptuues, of Dunmore, the Nag Augs, Crystals and Phoenix Chemicals, of the central city, and a delegation from the Franklins and Ira Trlpps from the West Side. Heforo going to the fair the com panies paraded through the principal streets to music by Hauer's band and the Nay Aug Drum corps. The band gave a delightful concert at the fair. is Vour Hair Turning Gray? Just remember that gray huir will never become darker uithout help, i er's Hair Vigor Swill bring back to your ha of youth.

No Cause Assigned for the Rash Act, but It Is Believed Ho Was Brooding Over His Position and Shot Himself in a Moment of Temporary Insanity Is Rapidly Sinking Into an Unconscious Con dition and but Little Hopes of His Recovery Are Entertained. Norman Wheeler, of Sli Keyser ave nue, who wus u curpeiiter In the cm ploy of the Delaware, Luoknwanna and Western company for the past forty yiars. attempted suiolde shortly before I! o'clock Inst evening by shoot ing himself In the head with a 22 callbro revolver. No cause is assigned for the deed, but it Is believed by his relatives that the act was committed In a. moment of temporary lnanltj. WheiJer bad not been feeling very well for some time. He feared the loss of his position under the company ow ing to the discharge of so many old empfoyes, and brooded considerable over tlu matter. He resigned on Sat urday and this, with bis Illness, Is as signed ns the reason for the shooting. Yesterday afternoon ulioiu 1 o'clock Wheeler lett his home und went to tho central city, returning about '5 o'clock Ho seemed In good spirits and sat on the porch smoking his pipe for some time afterward. He also walket be tween the house and bant several times, but did not seem worried over anything, although he appciued some what 'restless, Mt a. Wheeler said. There was no one about lh. houye except Wheeler and his wife, and about u."0 o'clock the latter left the hou'ie to go to a. -nllkman's nearby to procure some milk fw the evening meal. FIRED TWO BULLET"-?. AVheeJer was sitting on the porch when hi wife left the house, and when she returned about twftity minutes later, b; was sitting In a chair In the dining room with the revolver In his hand, hftvlnsr fired two bullets Into the right ear. Sirs. Sanderson, t neighbor, beard the shots fired, but did not pay nny attention to them, supposing It was some one In the open field nearby, und the first person to discover the man was Mrs. Roach, anothi r neigh bor, who had gone into tho house to procure- some yeast. The latter noticed the man sitting In the chair with the revolver in his hand and ran out of the house to the front yard, where she met, Mrs. Wheeler returning from the milkman's. Sev eral of the neighbors were summoned and they removed the Injured man Into an adjoining room and placed him on a couch and everything pos sible was done to stop the flow of blood. Dr. R. G. Ueddoo was telephoned for and when he arrived Wheeler was still conscious, but would not say any thing, except In an undertone which was hardly audible. LODGED IN THE HEAD.. An examination revealed the fact that both bullets hud lodged In tho head and the ear was burned by the shooting. Everything possible was done and tho man was resting comfortably in a semi-conscious condition at 9 o'clock, when Dr. Reddoe and Dr. Rob erts held a consultation. They de cided twit to probe for the bullets, as the chances are Wheeler will not re cover, owing to his extreme age, which Is 'l years. The revolver with which the shoot ing wns done was a young American safety-liammer, 2'i calibre, and wus purchased by Wheeler yesterday while In the central city. When found It contained three loaded and two empty shells. Tn a conversation with a Tribune man last evening, Mrs. Wheeler stated that her husband had no reasons for shooting himself that she knew of, as his home life had always been happy and he only thing that might have caused him to feel melancholy was the fact of bis fear of being discharged from the Delaware, Lackawanna and Western company. This statement Is borne out by the fact that last Sat urday Wheeler tendered his resigna tion. He wl-nt to John Hoffman, outside foreman at the Hampton mine, where he worked and told him that he did not Intend to be discharged from the company's employe after having worked for them for forty years, and would not again resume his position. REMOVED HIS TOOLS. Yesterday he went to the shop and secured his tools and removed them to his home. Wheeler has two sons and one daughter residing In this city. They are William Wheeler, of West Elm turret: Adam Wheeler, of Luz erne street, and Mrs. Ella Swartz. He Is a member of Ezra S. Griltln post, No. 1119, !rand Army of the Republic, and has resided on Keyser avenue for about twenty years. At midnight Wheeler was lapsing Into deeper Insensibility and his re covery la extremely doubtful. LANGSTAFF-KELLY CONTEST. Witnesses Who Gave Their Testi mony Yesterday.
