FIRST CIRCUS DAY
OF THE SUMMER
BUFFALO DILL'S WILD WEST
A BIG ATTRACTION.
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

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

NORMAN WHEELER
ATTEMPTS SUICIDE
FIRED TWO BULLETS INTO HIS
RIGHT EAR.
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.
