SOCIETY'S TERRIBLE SACRIFICE
NEW YORK, Oct a year society sees the break of dawn. It-is the day of the Vajjder bilt cup race, one of the greatest automobile events in the world. Nothing short of this race would lure the pampered ones from their downy beds, .but it does the busi ness. They endure such hardships AT THE TOP, MRS. W. K. VANDERBILT JR., WHO KEPT A FEARFUL EYE ON HER HUS BAND AS HE RISKED HIS LIFE A DOZEN TIMES ON THE TRACK. BELOW, MRS HARRY PAYNE WITNEY'S BOX PARTY. MRS. WHITNEY IN THE MIDDLE lis loss of sleep and lack of accus tomed food to prove their sporting blood. The sacrifice is necessary because the race is always started with the first appearance of day. It Is, of course, a severe ordeal for the easy going, but after it is over they are able to tell how things look when nature rolls back the darkness and turns on the light. On the night before the contest there are scenes of the llevliest description from the big hotels in New York to the race course over In the wilds of l-ong island. Many of them form dinner parties at the hotels to get a big feed to help tide them over the hard times at the course. They have the hotel men prepare big hampers of food and drink—especially drink. One Fifth avenue hotel put up 517 such hampers. Then there Is an endless proces sion of automobiles from early eve ning until, long after midnight from the big city to the scene of the race. One ferry line carried over 3600 machines across the East river. It has been estimated that there were 10.000 autos lined up along the 23 miles of the race C %T' \\t at he farmers and keepers of villi p hotels near the track the racy crowd was a sure enough bo nanza. Cots in the hotel corridors were held at $3 to $f> while they lasted. The cost of rooms In farm nouses ranged from $"> to $18, and is much more as the genial hosts lad the nerve to ask. One agriculturist, who was fav wed with the Instinct of a summer •esort landlord, rented several beds or $25 each. He made the beuevo ent concession, however, that two >r more persons could occupy a bed f they desired, and could divide be cost. At the hotels there were card larties that lasted all night. There tras drinking without any partlcu ar limit. Those who were unable to get! iven a chair nap at the hotels ran j their cars to the side of the race course and tried in vain to get "40 winks" of sleep. There was a driz zling rain that made sleep and com fort impossible. Thousands of poorer enthusiasts who had walked miles through the rain, camped like gypsies in the woods. Their sputtering camp fires and the flare of light from thou sands of machines presented a scene that was wonderfully pic turesque. All the sleeping accommodations of the region accommodated but a PREACHER USED PROFANITY ATLANTA, Ga., Oct. 31.—"The defendant was clearly guilty, and the record presents no reversible error," declares the state court of appeals in sustaining the verdict of Holcomb of Cartersvllle, convicted guilty against the Rev. Dr. Walt of using "profane, obscene and vul gar language In the presence of women." Dr. Holcomb, an evangelist and son in law of the late Rev. Sam P. Jones, was indicted for remarks he made at a meeting in the Carters vllle tabernacle, where women were present. The minister ap pealed the case. "It was not the ribaldry of some low grade comedian In a second class theater," said the court; "It was the Indecent Jest of a minister of the gospel, made in a house de voted to the services of God, In the presence of some 3000 worshipers, aimed at a female member of the congregation, whose excess of adi pose happened to excite his atten tion." At the time the remark was made the woman was leaning over a pew and talking to someone In a seat immediately to the rear. SEVERE STORM IN B. C. SEATTLE, Oct. 31.—Advices re ceived In Seattle today 'from Prince Rupert, B. C, report that the most severe storm of the winter is just abating at that place. The storm lasted five days, and during that time the gasoline schooner Vina very small fraction of the speed mad crowd. The proper thing to do was to keep awake, be game and make a good tint eof it. And by being real sporty society saw the dawn. Hollow Horn's Picture on the Greenbacks YANKTON. S. D., Oct. 31. —Hollow Horn Bear, chief of all the Sioux, returning from a visit to Senator Gam ble, at Yankton, on tribal matters, found himself "broke," and through Inter preter Elliston, sought Judge Witten, In charge of . the Tripp registration, and asked him for a loan of |5 to buy food for his family. When the judge presented a $, r > bill Elliston pointed out Hollow Horn Bear's picture on it. Judge Witten kept the bill and gave the chief specie, and said he thought it advisable to retain th* bill which contained the pic ture of the only living man who ever got himself photo graphed in that manner. Hollow Horn Bear made a great speech in congress in 18cS9. and as he <4s a good looking speeiment of his race, his picture was en graved on both the $5 and $20 bills. was driven on the rocks between Port Essington and Prince Rupert, and several fishing boats were driven ashore. The river boat Skeena, which should have left Prince Rupert several days ago for upper river points, has been com pelled to lie over at Prince Rupert, as the Captain was afraid to at tempt to face the storm. The wise man who has a good opinion of himself keeps it to him self. At the Theaters SPOKANE THEATER. . Max Figman closes a four nights and matinee this evening in "The Substitute," one of the best com edies he has brought over the road. November 3 and 4 are local at traction dates. Sis Hopkins is here November 9 and 10. ORPHEUM The name of Felix Morris is synonomous with the highest type of character acting, and his daugh ter, who heads the Orpheum bill for the coining week, has inherit ed much of the ability of her tal ented father. Miss Morris, who is now making her initial bow to the vaudevill public after making her reputation in such companies as those of Clara Uloodgood, Bessie Tyree, Henry Ludlow and Richard Mansfield. For vaudeville Miss Morris has selected a Frances Wil son playet entitled "The Old, Old Story." The sketch is replete with humor and in it the much-abused phonograph plays an entirely new and humorous part. Castellane & Brother are down on the bill as cyclists and they get away from the usual run of contortions on the wheel that seem to have in vaded the vaudeville stage this year. They put life in the perform ance by introducing a chance or two of death, and their somersaults and plunges on the wheel are spec tacular in the highest degree. The DeHaven Sextet act features Syd ney C. Gibson. The setting is a pretty garden in which a fete is being held and the program in cludes catchy songs and dances, va ried by costume changes. Com edy is introduced in the act of Eugene and Willie Howard in their singing and dancing specialty, "The Hebrew Messenger Boy and the Thespian." More comedy is offered by Harry Linton and Anita Laurence in their entertaining comedy skit, "Married Now." The duo gives a consisitent perform ance varied with catchy dialogue. The superlative degree is an nounced as the mildest term that can be applied to the mirth-provok ing mouthings of "Happy .lack" Gardner in monologue. The clever dancing team of Bissett & Scott, known as the "Hello George" boys, will present a number of step oddi ties. The usual high class moving pictures will close the performance. AUDITORIUM The Shirleys are up to date next week with 'Hello Bill," a farce comedy. It is not "Hill" Bryan or "Bill" Taft, however, but two "Bill" Fullerds who cause the trouble. One gets into trouble fnl lowing a raid on a gambling house and tells his bride-to-be that he must leave for the front as he has just received an appointment as colonel in the army. He does this at the instigation of Christopher Cutting, a general "fixer" who hat. decided that the gambling raid will result in two months in jail. Fuller promises his bride to return after two months and when the court assesses a fine he does not know how to square matters so de termines to hide two months and then return to his bride. Strange to say, the president did appoint a William Fuller as colonel, and this latter individual won all manner of honor in Cuba and is promoted to brigadier. When the pseudo colonel returns home Cutting ar ranges a big reception for him and to his surprise he has two General Fullers on his hands. From this on the comedy mlxup is fast and furi ous. There are several pretty lit tle love stories injected into the plot. Mr. Gunn and Jack Amory as the two Fullers have the most prominent roles, while Owen M. Williamson as Cutting, the "fixer," is never in the background. Miss Shirley and Miss Cleveland have the most prominent roles among the women In the cast. On Tues day evening the election returns will be announced from the stage. WASHINGTON The Washington management lias secured a hill of which the fea ture will he In keeping with popu lar political Interest. This is a comedietta entitled "Hypnotizing a Wife," by Dolph and Susie Levino. Ten years ago the team was known in Spokane and other northwest citleß as one of the most success ful In vaudeville. Mr. !x>vino's best work at that time was In free hand portraiture, and next week he has selected for his portraits the most popular political candi dates of all parties. Mrs. Levlno has a sweet voice, and she intro duces several song selections Into the act. Since they were here last they have traveled all over the world. A headline this week is Professor Patterson's Five Bronse Statues act. The troupe Is com posed of three beautiful women and two men of nearly perfect physique, who pose to represent the world's best known masteV THE SPOKANE PftESS JOHN B. DONOVAN, IRISH TENOR AT THE PANTAGES pieces in painting and sculpture. The act is staged in velvet draperies. During the past six weeks Prof. Patterson has had his act at the New York hippodrome. Mallia & Bart, comedians, have an acrobatic satire on the manner in which the baggage man handles trunks. A feature in the sketch line will be presented by James J, and Myra Davis Dowling. James Recently I received the following perplexed letter from a girl reader: "My Dear Miss Grey—l am en gaged to be niarried to the best young man in the world, but I can't be happy because I am haunted with the fear that he will stop lov ing me. How can I feel sure that I can keep his love?" To this girl I have but one sug gestion: The best way to keep a man's love is to take it, take all he has to give, and be happy in it. If your lover is fond of you and you care for him it Is folly to poison the beauty of these precious moments by imagining that some thing Is going to happen which probably won't happen. He loves you now and you are glad; just keep right on being glad. Women have a trick of being afraid that something terrible is going to happen. The happier we are the more terrible are our fears. Isn't it strange that we should be so afraid of being happy? It is my personal belief that this fear of gladness comes from a tor pid liver, and that a little more ex ercise in the fresh air and not so much reading or fancy work in the close rooms of a house would drive away some of these fears.

Smith and Caudia Brown are ap pearing on this bill in their artistic dancing and singing specialty. The pictures will tell the story of "Her Newsboy Friend." " PANTAGES Acrobatic acts of all kinds have appeared at the Pantages, but none have come with a better reputation than the Heras Family, who will appear here next week. Their act consists of nine people, all of whom are full fledged athletes. The Heras Family were the distinct feature with Barnum & Bailey for two seasons and of late have ap peared at the New York hippo drome. Burt Weston and com pany will be seen in Mr. Winston's latest comedy. They carry their own special scenery. The first number Is John W. Donovan, cele brated Irish tenor, who supposedly is Chauncy Olcott. The next is Mr. Weston in imitation of Harry Lauder. Miss Belle Myers and her dancing kiddies introduce some clever dancing and singing. De renda & &Green are a couple of American juggling comedians who have just returned from a three years' engagement'in Europe. Oth er good acts on the bill will be Walter Daniels in character studies and Boulder & Quinn comedy in- strumentalists. William D. Gilson will sing a new illustrated song and the performance will conclude with new views of the Pantage scope. There wa sa yesterday and there may be a tomorrow, but all we are sure of is this day, this hour, this very moment. Since we have noth ing, after all, but this one moment which we can call our own, it is not only foolish but wicked to give up any part of it to fear or worry of any kind. ASK LEGISLATION ON VACCINATION TACOMA, Oct. 31.—Superintend ent Voder of the public schools has submitted to the board of education some changes in the school laws he intends sending to Olympia to have enacted, requiring, among other things, compulsory vaccination. The change makes it essential that the parent must prove the child to have been vaccinated or furnish a certificate that vaccina tion cannot be safely had. Also the board is empowered to have chil dren vaccinated as a condition of admission to the schools. The question promises to pro voke heated debate. Some persons absolutely refuse to have their chil dren vaccinated, and a serious legal question is involved in the attempt to compel it by school boards.

PAUL, Minn., Oct. 31— The ashes of Sitting Bull, the most famous of all the old Indian chiefs, will soon be removed from their present resting place at Fort Yates, N. D., and taken to the 'national burying ground at Keokuk, la. To a St. Paul firm of undertakers, McCarthy & Son, has been assigned the transfer of the remains of the old fighting chief, official orders from Washington. D. C, having been received by the firm recently. Along with Sitting Bull's bones will be taken the remains of nine other Indians. . Advices from Fort Yates are that the Indians on the reservation there are highly incensed over the proposed removal of the bones of their beloved chief. According to the Indian religion the removal of a body from Its first grave means discontent to the dead man'l soul; that the spirit will wander disconsolately through the happy hunting grounds, destined to an eternal unrest. So great was the tribe's displeas ure that an uprising was at first feared by the authorities. But —rising or no rising, the un dertakers are going to dig up Sit ting Bull and his nine comrades and ship 'em to Keokuk, willy nilly! NAVY TEAM OUTCLASSED The W. 8.
