May Ride Some More; Woodford IsU Best Steer Rider For Day. (From Tuesday's Daily.) With more people in the grandstand than on any previous opening day. the Fifth Frontier Days celebration was launched yesterday. Men and broncs seemed to be filled with pep, and the exhibitions were all good, but the best appreciated part of the program was the calf-tying contest, which had the advantage of novelty here, although the stunt is common enough on the range. Harry Henderson, once owner ol the diamond-studded champion medal, took first money in the world's chain pionship broncho riding contest, the feature of the week, in which but font out of nine riders qualified for further competition. "Doc" Pardee, holder of the medal from last year, drew second place, Johnnny Fredericks, an other title holder got third, and fourth money went to I.ee Robinson. Billy Simon, the spectacular kid, won first money in the bareback rid ing for the opening day, by making a splendid ride on "Ioway," the rangy critter of the devil. Billy also got second money in the steer-riding, by mounting his beast facing backwards and putting on as good a ride as all Fredericks, Thompson, Pardee and Henderson. Harry Knight, one of the first winners of the broncho busting medal is here to renew old acquaint ances, but is not doing any pawing in the draw-hat. Walter CHne Is There. Walter Cline, the Maricopa hos racer, came to the front and center loads of pleasure-seekers from every rcction. It is said that at least 50 i cars a clay have come in from the south, particularly the Salt River val ley, since the middle of last week. spite of the heavy inrush ol lsitors, the accommodations have proven clastic enough to stand the strain so far. At the last moment, many offers were made to accommo date visitors, some homes taking in as many as 30 and 40.

Elks' headquarters at the Hotel St. Mitchael has been the busiest place in the city for the past two days,' giving way yesterday afternoon to the hurricane deck of the festive steer and broncho, than which there is no busier place in any part of the world these days. Chairman Bill Glenn reg istered Elks from all over Arizona, from half a score of other States and from the lower parts of Del Rio. In other words, there were 39 lodges j represented among the visitors, who.

By Associated Press. EAST ST. LOUIS, July 2 At least 15 negroes were shot and killed by mobs tonight as they fled from their burning homes, which had been fired by white mobs. A number, it is believed, perished in the burning houses. Military rule was proclaimed and 300 white men were arrested. The negro quarters in vari ous parts of the city arc afire and the flames reach the very edge., of the business district. Estimates of the number of negroes who perished in the , fire ran as high as 100 but there was nothing authentic on which to base such estimates. Hundreds of whites stood officers of thc United States or States, ministers, students of divinity, per sons in the military or naval service of thc United States, subjects of Ger many and otiier aliens who have not taken out their first papers, county or municipal officers, workmen in I-cdcral armories, arsenals and navy came on thc scene and rode "Ioway" to a finish, winning first money in A haze in the air that turned j this event.

At last, reluctantly, and in a manner that indicated that hc was afraid that the ranger might not think it a manly sentiment, hc said: "There is a nest of young birds in that tree and if I cut thc tree they will all die."

News has been received from Phoe nix of thc death of Mrs. Eleanor Prince, who will bc rcmcinjjercd as a former resident of this city during thc time her son, Steve Prince, now deceased, was chief of police. Burial will bc given by thc side of her sou, ' W. M. Poulson & Co. conducting the funeral. Mrs. Prince had reached thc ! advanced age of 90 years, and leaves j a daughter ot Denver and a son in Phoenix. Thc remains will arrive on this afternoon's train. as day. Now and then a yell ing mob rushes down the street pursuing a negro. The number of dead as the result of today's race riots shortly after 11 o'clock tonight was estimated from 15 to 75; of whom two were white men. Forty injured negroes and six white men were in one hospital and an almost equal number in another. The city attorney estimated the damage at $3, 000,000, which was believed by some to be too high. Build ings were still burning at four points at c late hour. As na tional guardsmen in automo bile trucks dashed after each mott the shouting died down and thc people are walking the streets wondering where the next outbreak will occur. At 9 o'clock the mayor of East St. Louis called on the mayor of St. Louis for assist ance in fighting the flames, which threatened to destroy a large part of the city. The mobs were swelled by hundreds of people who early in the even ing crossed the river from St. Louis. This added such a menace to the situation that the bridges were closed to all pedestrian and vehicle traffic. The stopping of street car traffic over Eads bridge pre vented many suburban dwell ers from returning to their homes for the night. A hun dred negroes, mostly carrying bundles with their most preci ous Dossessions, walked across the bridge to shelter and safe ty with friends on the Missouri side.
