Wus Saturday'H Celebration of

"Labor Day" was favored with excellent
weather, and the celebration of the
day by the Ohio Valley Trades and Labor
Assembly at the state fair grounds
was an unqualified success. During the
afternoon and evening there were over
6,000 admissions. The afternoon crowd
I was over 5,000, and of these 1,200 saw the
fine programme of sports from the
grand stand.

did not prove a handicap In auy
way. The crowd was larger than last
year's and the locals that usually hire
j bands for the parade spent the money
In buying ticket* for their members.
The first event of the day was the bicycle
road race, which started from the
corncr of Tenth and Main streets at 1:54
p. m. Of the twenty-seven riders entered,
all but six etarted, and fourteen
finished. The limit man, 'Messenger
Boy" Pearlman, held his own until his
wheel was punctured. He was mounted
on a strange wheel, but it was too large
for him, and when the turning point was
rcacnca ne was me last man to score.
The winner proved to -be Clarence 1
Adams, a three-minute man, whoso
closest opponent was Percy Harris, who
started from* the same mark. At the
turn, foot of the St. Clalrsvllle hill,
Adams led Harris a few seconds. On 1
the return It was a scrap bptween the 1
two, and at Bridgeport Harris was
leading Adams by a hundred yards. 1
Coming acretw the Island, Adams cut
down some of the lead. At the entrance '
to the state fair grounds, Harris still
led, but before the track was entered,
Adams had passed his opponent and finished
a winner on the track about fifty
yards ahead of Harris. The summary:

A Session of (be Committee Held on .
Sunday Afternoon.
There was a meeting of the general
committee on Labor Day after the
meeting of the assembly.
The sub-committees that had charge
of the various features of Che celebration
made partial reports. Bills from i
several of the committees were presented
and ordered poid, but a number are
yet outstanding* and until all the bills
are paid the profits of the celebration
will not be known.
It was reported that the attendance
was over C.000, and over 1,200 paid for
admission to the grand stand. Last
year's attendance was not so large, and
never before has there been so large a
Krund stand patronage. This Is a vln- .
dication of the wisdom of (he amusement
committee in providing such an 1
attractive programme of sports.
