A GRAND Al GLORIOUS TRIUMPH The Universal Verdict bacco LARGEST CROWD, BY FAB, EVEB ASSEMBLED IN WINSTON Magnificent Kxblbits In All Departments Long and Imposing Parade. Weather Delightful Kxcellent Speeches by Col. J. S. Carr, of Durham, and. Col. J. S. Cunningham, of Person. Kverybody Praising the Progressive Spirit 01 the Twin-City. Wednesday of last week was the opening day of Winston's big Tobacco Fair. The general verdict is that it was the crowning event in Winston's his tory. The exhibits at Farmers' warehouse were superb the btstof the kind ever seen in state, lr not tue enure ooum Of cuurse they were viewed and ad mired by thousands of people. The committees that have so suc- cesfullv planned for the exposition expected big crowds, but th ir anti cipations hav-e been more than real zd. The streets of the Twin-City were ned all day with active humanity.; rtie circus is not in it with our Fair, so far as ati racting the people from the country is concerned Then. too. here are hundreds here f'ooi North Carolina and Virginia towns and cities Ttie number of visitors is esti mated to be not Jess than ten thou sand, which is the largest ever seen here the day lien. Mevenson spoke here, during the memorable cam paign of 1894, cot excepted. The exhimts of leaf tohacco, rjy farmers, at. Brown's and Star ware house were splendid. The golden weed was there in abundance, showing that Piedmont Carolina grows floe tobacco and the best chew to be found any where in thee United States. ' THE GREAT PARADE. Grand and imposing, icdeed, was the Fair procession in the morning, which formed on Fifth street, pro ceeded to Summit, thence to Fourth. heLce to Cherry, thence to hhallow ord, thence to Main and up Main to the City Hall,, where the addrsse . of Col. J S Carr and Col. J. S Cunning ham were delivered Thousands lined the streets at various points along the line of march and aa nil red the great parade which was formed in the following order: .Piatoon of Mounted ir lice. Chie' Marshal, F H. Fries. Assistant Marshals. Salem Band. Carriages with Speakers and Officers of the Far Salem Fire Co., with engine and boe wagon. Eagle Hose Co.. of Salem, with reel. Winston Fire Department, includ rg two engines, white and colored Hook and Ladder Companies, hose watton, ttc. Forsyth Rifl-a, Capt. Bessent in Command, beaded by drum corps Carriages with Mayors of Wiuston ar d Salem and others. Oak Ridge students, numbering about 150 Jr. O. U A M , numbering over 100 The Centerville Band. Citizens in carriages and on horse back. At the conclusion of the parade, the speakers, marshals and an immense crowd proceeded to the Armory where the Kair was formally opened wth strong and well received addresses by Col. Carr and Col. Cunningham. After the Salem band rendered pleas ing selections. Col. A B Gorrell re quested the audience to stand up He then called upon Kev Dr. Creasy, who offered an earnest prayer. Hon. Clement Manly, in luting words introduced Col. J. S. Carr, who was the first speaker. COL. CARR'S SPEECH. In opening bis speech, which proved an eloquent and classical, and yet practical effort. Col Carr said : ".Paul, the apostle to the lien tiles, making his defense before King Agrippa, said: "1 think myself happy, O King Agrippa, to stand before you this day. LilRe Paul, 1 congratulate myself on the opportunity of Handing today in this distinguished presence and participating in tbese felicibous exercises. 'We time another milestone in the industrial march in North Carolina today, and the State is debtor again to your enterprising town for pushing along upon the Dial of Prosperity the Indicator that mat&s our progress North Carolina is indeed upon the up grade. If there be a doubter let him look around at the unrivalled display made by your nrst l ooacco air. The speaker de recated in no uncer tain way the existence of trusts or ganized monopoly was the way be put it and spoke of the hurtful results to honorable business by the illegal methods of those who try, in defiance of explicit statutes, to shut off compe tition. "1 honor aoa respect all well gotten wealth," said Col. Carr. would protect it with all the power of the army, but l deem it a fearful sign of cancerous growth when wealth combines to crush competition by the right of might." The speaker then referred m very complimentary terms to the loaugura tioo of Winston's looacco f air, say ing in part: "May this magnificent display of your handicraft, which challenges ad miration, stimulate all those who, like the Queen of Sheba, come to in spect your greatness and success, to bigber motives and nobler aims, and may the harvest be such a lesson, in industrial progress, that all over North Carolina brains will set on -41 re with a desire to develop and promote the material Interest or the state. Col. Carr dwelt at length upon the importance of harmony of thought and action between residents of city and country, opening up a line of thought worthy of serious considera tion. In conclusion, the speaker said: "I rlpr-lare It, to be a tfood thinir. this ' first Tobacco Fair, a proud thing, a Big To Fair. useful and inspiring manifestation nf energy well placed, and I ask Heaven's besi olessing upon it and upon you. its authors, and with all the ecstacy and pride of a North Carolinian, native and to the manor born, I am delighted to be the mouthpiece to officially declare your splendid Fair open." COL. CUNNINGHAM'S ADDRESS. Col. J S. Cunningham was happily introduced by Mr. G. A. Follin. The Colonel opened bis speech with an allusion to our town and section. Said he: I am pleaded to again have the pleasure of coming to Winston-Salt m, the hospitable home of gallant met, fair womeo, God bless them, the h"me of that gallant ex-Confederate soldier, that estimable gentleman and patri otic citizen of our commonwealth, the Hon. Cyrus B. Watson. Here z-al, enterprise, and public spirit give the world an example or prosperity, wrought by cooperation, under direc tion of master minds. Here we be hold a community pressing forward to attain splendid aim-, and to realize legitimate and patriotic ambitions, and accomplishing their honorable pu poses by working together in bar rel nv. Your pluck and energy have built these resources, cotton and tobacco factories, beautiful residences and handsome churches You show your faith in your borne by spending your money here, which is tbe best evi dence of your belief that a-still bright er future is in store for your city, which has won tha meriLed appelation of being called the "Metropolis of the Piedmont belt." the busoanamen. who come from tbe mountains and the plains, have contributed their share towards tbe upbuilding of this tobacco market, and giving you the world-wide reputation which you enjoy." He then 3welt upon the theoiyof Is iitberrs immigration the hope of a progressive South, saying he incoming tide has begun to rise. Every train Drinus manufacturers seeking to establisb themselves or their sons near tbe raw material and in this growing market. Let tbe fullness of tbe tide roll In. The Colonel is the greatest tobacco farmer in tbe State and he gaves me munificent advice to tobacco farmers A farmer," said he, "musl have great push and energy, for without it no good result can be attained. Econ omy upon tbe farm is one. of tbe ob- e-ts which every man engaged in agriculture should carefully study and consider for without it nothing but a sad failure will ensue Habits of or der, punctuality, industry, self gov ernment, should all be assiduously cultivated Fortunately nature works for us while we are trying to help our selves, and what at first required la borious tff rts, needs but the slight Impulse of the will to make the act almost automatic The honor roll of every state furnishes a thousand ex amples of tbe rise of lads from tbe farm house to the highest posts of honor. The farmer who looks for a good harvest and expects his lands to respond and to yield remunerative crops, when he robs the land of every thing, who does not rotate his crops, or put something back upon the land, will sooner or later learn that such cultivation will not bring profitable results." Tnen tbe Colonel gave some statis tics as to tbe money earning capacity of Southern lands. .The speaker then concluded: Let the history of the Anglo-Saxon race be our inspiration to us to press forward with all of our might to the goal of our ambition. Tbe scholars, poets, heroes, statesmen furnished by our State and nation are a proud heri tage to those who are living today. Let us imitate their noble virtues, and strive to add lustre to what they have done in their day and genera tion. - ' , LIVE STOCK EXHIBIT. .

Friday marked the close of Win ston's grand, glorious and successful Tobacco Fair. Tbe day was a molel one. The weather was spring-like and every body appeared to be happy. ' The number of visitors was larger than on the opening day. Many esti mate that no less than 15,000 people were here, besides our own people. Our country friends began to arrive early. Farmers' Warehouse - was thronged with admiring crowds all day STATE NORMAL GIRLS. Three hundred girls from the State Normal arrived here on a special train -at 9:30 in tbe morning. They were ac companied by President Mclver and the members of tbe faculty. Winston-Salem was proud of Dr Mclver and bis College girls. As they marched up from tbe depot they at tracted much attention and received many handsome compliments. At 2 o'clock in the afternoon the Pres ident and his girls went down to tbe old Moravian church, which was built in 1800, and beard a brief and inter esting history of the old house of wor ship, given by Bishop Rondthaler. From there they went to tbe Acade my chapel where a complimentary re cital was tendered them by the facul ty and pupils of the tsalem school. Tbe visitors were then taken In charge and shown through tbe buildings and grounds. THE BICYCLE PARADE. - Like everything else connected with the big Fair, tbe Bicycle parade in tbe morning was a brilliant success It hid been eagerly anticipated and thousands of persons gathered along tbe line of march to witness it. - It was the largest and most elabor ate and most beautifiil event of its character that has ever transpired in the State and much credit is due Prof. D H Blair and bis faithful assistants for the admirable manner in which everything connected with it was managed, and great praise Is due the bicycle riders, ladies, gentlemen, boys and girls, for the loyal and enthusias- tic support rendered the manage- j uient. ( thbtdecorations. There were a hundred or more wheels in the procession and a large number of them were exquisitely deco rated and some were masterpieces of lovely and unique designs. Servingas decorations were white and yellow chrysanthemums, ribbons, laces, bunt ing, fl-igs, butterflies, tobacco leaves, plug tobacco, etc.. and as an entirely the parade was a grand and inspiring scne and won t he plandits of tbe ad miring multitude. Some of the decorations, of course, deserve special mention, but if we should enter upon this delicate task it would be difficult to tell iust where to draw the line of special mention. Hence we will let the judges say who are entitled to tbe highest honors. LINE OF PARADE. The procession formed on Cherry street, near Fourth, and moved down Cherry street and return: out Fourth j to nuiiiuin; our, summit to r 111 11; down Fifth to Liberty; around Court- j house Square; thence up Liberty to Main; down Main to Brown's ware- , house, and thence to the starting , point. j UNIQUE AND AMUSING FEATURE. j The rear of the Bicycle Parade was brought up by a buggv, drawn hy two pretty p inies, driven in tandem styl.

" THE DIPLOMATS." The Charming Play Presented at tbe Armory. One of the most delightful features of-our gala week was the presentation of "The Diplomats" at the Armory Wednesday night by the Winston Dramatic club, aided by Miss Lillian Staples, of Greensboro. Tbis performance was one of the special attractions arranged under the direction of tbe Tobacco Fair Associa tion for the interest and pleasure of our visitors and there was no price for admission. The tickets distributed under the direction of the Association were eagerly sought after and the armory was filled to overflowing. The play was one of the best ever presented in Winston either by am eteurs or professionals and the acting was superb. Dr. Summers immortalized himself in the character of "Timothy Chad wick the retired farmer," and Mrs J. B Douglass, as the "Farmer's Daugh ter," was excellent Mr. David T Huyck as "Leopold Fitz Jocelyn," I made a Diplomat one moment and a valet the next to perfection and his was one of tne most pUasing cbarac ters in tbe play. Prof. David H. Blair made a superb Spinks Fi'z Joce lyn's valet but when it became necessary for him- to change charac ters with his master, be was a com manding Diplomat in a twinkling. Tbe Count,- the title r le, being played by Mr. Peter Gorrell, placed tbis popular young Winstoolan in direct line to stage royalty. He did it well. Kitty, the maid, could not have been improved on if it bad been writ ten specially for Miss Lilla Young. She actedKitty perfectly. All tbese characters were splendidly portrayed. So was tbe Baron and Major by Messrs. By num. Glenn and Wingfteld Young. . But the star of the evening, as well as of tbe play, was Miss Lillian Staples, of tbe Greensboro Dramatic Club. Miss Staples is an elocutionist wearing honors fro to St. Mary's and from tbe Boston Conservatory. She has beauty and those charming graces that make her seem perfectly at home on the stage and her impersonation of ' Gloriapa, the Young Widow," was nr re like a professional than an amiteur. THE VARIETY SHOW. Prof. Gus Reich and. Other Fine At tractions. The Variety Show was great. Dr. J, A. Blum, the manager, is not only an "artist" in pulling teeth and decorating, but bis entertainment Thursday night convinced the great audience that as a show manager he is also a great success. Every seat In the Armory was taken before 8 o'clock and many stood up during tbe entertainment. Prof. Gus Reich, "the Wiztrd of the Blue Ridge," as be styles himself, was the first nunaber on the program. He gave a number of sleight of hand as wejj trick, all or which were amusing as puzzling. The Professor was well received. Mr. Conley, of Washington, sang several selections to the delight of the big crowd The first number was "All Coons Look Alike to Me," the second, "A Hot Time in the Old Town Tonight." He changed the words to the chorus in rendering the last verse and said: "There'll be a Hot Time in Winston Tonight." Mr. Burton Barbee, of this city. son of tbe late G W Barbee. gave a number of contortion acts that were remarkable He doubled himself iu nearly every conceivable shaps, turned someisaulis, etc. It is admitted that be is tbe finest contortionist in tbe South Master Girard Estes, the popular ntriloquist, entertained the great audience with "Snow" and '. Dennis. " Master Thomas Blum, son of tbe manager of the show, walked a slack wire and performed several remarka ble feats, among which were going through a whoop, beating a kettle drum, removing his coat, etc , while standing on a wire. Mr Conley here sang another amus ing selection entitled "Little Darkey Pi ceie " He also recited a pleasing little story about the Irish woman that went to a dentist. Tbe last number on the program was an apple eating contest between five negro boys and it brought down tbe house. A small rope was stretch ed across the stage to which were tied Ave apples, one- for each, contestant 1 he band played and the eating com menced. The boys were required to keep their bands in their pockets A minute or more passed before the boys were able to get a bite from the dang ling apples. The contest lasted for more than five minuus but not one of tiie boys had eaten an apple. The variety show closed with an Irish song by Mr. Conley. The Sentinel congratulates Dr. Blum upon the success that attended bis splendid entertainment, which was given complimentary to our many Fair visitors. ROBBEDOF $50. Mr. A. Lewis, of Kernersville Pocket Picked on the Train to Winston-Salem. Mr. A Lwis, of Kernersville, was robbed of $50 'last week Wednesday on tbe train between his home and Win ston. Of course he has no idea who got. his money. It is learned that another man, wnose name was not learned, bad bis pockets picked in Greensboro that morning, just before the Winston train left there.
