ADVERTISEMENT FOR RICHMOND
Hi Possible the Promoters of the Scheme Would Like to See
Every Man, Woman and Child Make the Trip in the
Special Train That Will Be Secured Wilfred Jessup
Reminds the Club Members That Richmond Should Be
. proud to Do Honor to the Men Who . Have Mastered the
. Problem of Aerial Navigation.
Will we go to Dayton?
O, yes, If Dayton will hare us, we
will be there not 100,000 . strong we
are not quite so many but every fath
er, mother, sister, brother and the
"just grew ups," will be in the "magic
city" on June 18 to help pay homage
to the world's famous aviators, Orville
and Wilbur Wright It was decided
at the meeting of the Young , Men's
Business club last evening that if a
formal invitation be received from the
Dayton management of the celebra
tion, Richmond will turn out en masse
and go to the Ohio burg.V Go to let
the Wrights know they are not for
gotten in their old home town and go
to let Daytonians and everybody else
know Richmond does things.
"And it is to be expected that an in
vitation will be forthcoming in a jiffy.
General invitations have been sent out
by the Dayton committee to the cities
and town within a radius of 100 milos
asking them to participate. But
Richmond wants a Bpecial invitation,
so as It will be known that we are to
be some folks and Richmond expects
to get what is wanted. A committee
was appointed and it took up the mat
ter with the Dayton managers today.
. The whole town is expected to go,
and baggage. 'Special rates will
I secured -either on the steam or trac
tion lines. The Panhandle has offer
ed a rate of $1.30 for the round trip,
but it is believed a larger reduction
may be secured. The committee will
take up this phase of the matter and
report as soon as possible.
To Advertise City.
And everybody who goes will be ex
pected to advertise Richmond. Let it
be known where they are from and
where they are going back to. There
will be a blare of trumpets and sound
of cymbals. It is proposed that a
band, bugle corps, or both, be taken
along with the crowd to make music
and noise. The bugle corps has made
the generous offer of ; donating its
members' time. If the expenses be paid.
The offer is one that In all probability
will be accepted. A similar proposi
tion may be entertained from the band.
It Is believed enough public spirited
men. would donate to this fund so that
the money could be raised without
drawing on the treasury.
Must Shew His Colors.
If the plans projected materialise,
every mother's son from the Quaker
City will have to show his colors. No
matter if he goes blind baggage, on an
excursion train, ridea In an automobile
or airship, ho will be expected to stop
somewhere along the line, pin on a
Richmond badge and march through
the town with the local delegation. It
Is not a money-making affair for any
body. About the only Dayton persons
who will profit will be the restaurant
owners and If you don't dare to pat
ronise them from the home Industry
standpoint, take a Richmond ham
sandwich in each pocket and carry a
canteen of coffee under your coat. But
A spray of cold water, dashed by
one member, was dispelled beneatli the
warm, bright rays of Wilfred Jessup's
an. The Centerville attorney, who
knows what's best, and will be num
bered is the fold after his South
Nineteenth street potato patch is con
verted Into a local mansion for Sarah
and little Wilfred, also the & Company
of the family, was like a large sized
application of heart balm to the pro
moters of the Dayton trip. In all his
towering greatness and majestic splen
dor he expressed his disapproval of the
Iceberg sentiment. "Let's remember
that the Wright's formerly lived here."
he said. "They are Just like old
friends to some of us. They have
relatives residing here now. When
they lived here the family was known
aa a progressive and highly respected
group of citizens. Since leaving Rich
mond the two young men have accom
plished something no other men have.
Now, let's go over there and lot them
know they are not forgotten by their
old friends any more than by their

It is not far over there and the trip

to call attention to the Cincinnati Bus
iness Men's club that visited Rich
mond during the fall festival of last
year. Now, these men came up 'and
spent the day with us. They did not
expect to profit much . in dollars and
cents, but they showed a good spirit, a
fraternal interest in the welfare of the
city, and contributed generously to
the success of the festival for one
day. , Now, that is the kind of spirit
it is up to Richmond to show. I
know of no better way to advertise the
city. We should at least co-operate
to make the affair the success it is
bound to be and our returns will come
in time. Maybe wo might want Day
ton to come over here some day. It
behooves us. If we ask citizens of oth
er communities to come to our fall
festival, that we be willing to go to
their cities and helpthjsm out, too." .
Others expressatne same sentiment
as voioedjplJfr, Jessup. It is recog
nised thatthe whole town is to partic
ipate. The Y. M. B. C. is simply act
ing as an incentive' and to boost the
thing along. The other commercial
organizations are to be conferred with
and business men are to be solicited to
go. Let it be sent out In all the press
dispatches from Dayton that the larg
est outside delegation came from Rich
mond. " ,

Several Cases of Fraudulent
Marriage Are on the
PROSECUTOR IS TO ACT
Several cases in which a fraudulent
marriage is alleged, are awaiting trial
in circuit court. The prosecutor said
this morning he will take up the cases
as soon as the judge is ready to hear
them. It is probable that in one or
two weeks a jury will be asked for.
and these will have to go over until
after the spring farm work is done.
The prosecutor believes such cases
are becoming somewhat too numerous.
He will institute proceedings and try
to puBh them through. He has no
sympathy for men who marry to es
cape prosecution on a paternity
charge and then desert their wife or
fail to provide for her.

SENIOR CLASS AS
"The Merchant of Venice" Will
Be Staged at the Gen
A BEAUTIFUL PRODUCTION
EVERYTHING POINTS TO THE
FACT THAT THE PLAY WILL BE
ONE OF THE BEST ' AMATEUR
EVENTS OF THE SEASON.
At the dress rehearsal this after
noon the finishing touches were put
on the preparation for the production
at the Gennett tonight, of the great
Shakespearean play, " The Merchant
of Venice." The play is being staged
by the senior class of the school under
the direction of Mr. John E. Owens, of
A Never-Old Play.
"The Merchant of Venice," is, of
course, an , old play. . However,
Shakespeare is never really old; and,
besides, tonight's performance will be
unique in several particulars. Among
other things, Director Owens has en
deavored to reproduce something of the
atmosphere of mediaeval Venice. To
accomplish this he has introduced
touches of the color of early Venetian
life masqueraders, gorgeous costumes
and the lilt of music. The following
graduates of the 1900 class of the
high school will be the masqueraders:
Lucile Townsend, Edna Marlatt. Ab
by, Schaefer, Arthur Curme, Edwin
Flook, Raymond Richards, Russel
Heitbrink, Ed Cox, Raymond Rogers,
Blair Converse. . .
Beautiful Dance. '
- An exquisite dance will be given by
twelve young women, also of the grad
uating class, under the direction of
Roy J. Horton, of the Y. M. C. A. The
young women who will dance are:
Charlotte Bayer, Vera Crome, Eliza
beth Morris, Abby Scbaefer, Martha
Scott, Lucile Townsend, Josephine
Richardson, Mary Highley, Erma Pick
ering, Edna Marlatt, Norma Runge,
Not the least interesting part of the
program will be the special music by
the High School orchestra, under the
direction of Will Earhart, director of
program of music:

that the knifing of the balloon did not

A Catchy Phrase to Attract
People Carnival Tickets
The fall festival for 1909 was given
a boost at the meeting of the Young
Men's Business club last evening,
when that organization decided to ac
cept the responsibilities of the under
taking again. . The board of directors
is to be instructed to meet at once and
make all preliminary arrangements by
the appointment of the various com
mittees. Bigger and better than
ever will be the slogan of the festival
managers. Last year's success will
be placed In the shadow' by this sea
son's undertaking. -
- Up to the Club. .
A report of the recent mass meeting
where the proposition. was discussed,
was made by CL W. Merrill. He said
it was the sense of the meeting that
the festival be given again and that
the Young Men's Business Club direct
it." "He 'put, the proposition up to the
club direct and the organization voted
to tackle the Job. One member -said
the Fall Festival is 'identical with the
club and the club means fall festival.
The treasurer reported that about
300 tickets to the mask. carnival have
not been settled for. He says there is
a list of those who handled these tick
ets and they will be called upon to
either return the tickets or the cash
equivalent. The . condition of the
treasury would benefit greatly If all of
these tickets are reported as sold and
the money turned in.
Decide on Slogan.
The committee on advertising
"stickers" reported that It had decided
a suitable slogan ought to be printed
on these stickers. In order to arouse
interest, the committee asked for an
appropriation of $3. This sum is to
be offered as a prize to the person sug
gesting the most advisable motto or
slogan. . The Idea was approved and
the directors will be called together to
recommend the appropriation. The
newspapers will be asked to publish
the slogans suggested.
It was decided that the club will Is
