Wins the State Championship From Fremont. MAKES EXCELLENT RECORD. Norfolk's Small Neighboring City Takes High Honors In State Cham pionship RaceTime 333-10 Double 1 the Crowd of Last Year. [ From Thursday's Dnlly.1 The crowds to attend today H races nnd witness the parade of the lloyal TIgar club tonight started Into the city early this morning and have kept coming In n stendy stream nil day. The crowd this afternoon was divided between the streets and the races. While tlto 'race truck wns well patronized there were thousands of visitors who preferred to remain on the streets nnd see what was going on there , patronizing the con cessionaires and Indulging in good natured exchanges of merrymaking. Among the delegations that arrived during the day was one from the Knights of St. Eeb Kagus of Fremont. They were accompanied by the band of that city and will bo in the parade tonight. Another delegation from Wisner accompanied the band of that place which will furnish music and inspira tion for the parndo tonight. These two bnnds , with the popular Grand Island band already here , gives n guarantee of an extra amount of good music on the streets tonight , nnd this , with the parade , will no doubt servo to include an extra jam of frolicsome people on the streets until a late hour tonight or tomor row morning. This morning's program wns cnr- rlcd out. Grand Island won the water light against Holdrego , and In the wet hose race Humboldt carried off first money , time 33 2-5 ; Hum- * boldt was second , time12 1-5 and 5 Iloldrcge third , time 42 4-5. Both of these were intensely interesting fea tures of the tourney's program and every team in the events put up a splendid bit of work. For the racing this afternoon the track could not have been bettor. ! Ideal conditions in every way prevailed - ' / vailed and fast work was the effect throughout. The grand stand was filled and overflowing , the final day \y of the racing bringing out a bigger % crowd than over. / Today's program began at 1 o'clock sharp , In order to finish some fea tures that wore postponed. It was previously arranged that every race * ' should be given but fifteen minutes and then bo declared off. Timers today are : J. W. Moist , York ; E. J. Comer , Elmwood ; C. A. v Ililsebeck , Holdrego ; Grant Tucker , Stanton ; J. H. Mathews , Fremont ; C. C. Covert , Table Rock. Secretary Miler Is at the desk ; Chairman Johnson of the board of control , has charge of the grounds. Ho arrived last night. This releases McNeo. Judges are J. C. Cleland , of Fremont and John Shick of Beatrice. Starters are A. C. Hull , Fremont ; and Bob Appleby of Stanton. The first race was the straight away hose race , 250 yards , class "A , " which was postponed from yesterday. York won in n beautiful unpaced run , time 29 fiat ; Stanton took second money , time 29 4-5 ; Fremont came in third , time 30 1-5 ; Seward fourth , -i 31 3-10 ; Kearney fifth , 31 3-5. hr Norfolk , with "Bennlsh in the lead , * 4r won the first money in the straight * away , class "B , " time 32 1-5 ; they made a beautiful run. Bancroft , scheduled , went home this morning. Holdrego takes second and Hum boldt third. The next race was the straight away , class "B" . Humboldt ran in 33 2-5 ; Ponder 30 1 2 ; Holdrege ran in 32 2-5 ; Clarks , 33 1-2 ; Norfolk , V 32 1-5. , - S" In the state championship event , [ for which extra hundreds are here , I the tennis drew their running order * as follows : Kearney and Fremont ; 1 . - Seward and Stanton ; and York alone. A great deal of money changed hands on this race. Stanton carries away the s.tato championship belt for the next year , \ i time 33 3-10 ; Fremont and Seward tied on second money ; Kearney failed to couple nnd York , the team upon which much had boon banked , came quite a ways from the prize. In a superb run the prize winners - jf , from Fremont , who have taken the Fjf belt two years in succession and 1 who ran their level best to defend their title , made the time of 33 9-10. Kearney played in hard luck , the reel catching and preventing a break of the coupling. This puts them out of the running. Stnnton made a magnificent run alongside of Fremont. , beating the champions' time by 33 3-10. Seward made a briliant coupling and exactly tied the Fremont champions , 33 910. Stanton enthusiasts went wild in their glee over the excellent showing of the team , knowing that they at least took the prize from Fremont. York was yet to win , and speculation ran high between tills heat , as the York boys are as speedy as ghosts * and have made excellent showings throughout. Fremont's time in last year's race was identically the same ns that of today , 33 910. York ran nlono nnd made n pretty attempt , but failed to meet Stanton's time , running in 34 7-10. Holdrego won the class "B" state J championship race , Norfolk took second end nnd Humboldt third. The scores wore : Holdrego mndo the run in 38 3-5 ; Clnrks , 4i ; Norfolk , 41 ; Humboldt , " 42. Grnnd Island won state champion- nlilp hook and ladder rnco , clnwi "A , " In 41 l-fi , Plorco won In class "U , " time It ! 2-5. in the handicap foot rnco Taylor of York won his third and final heat In 1C IMi ; Sharp of Stanton took second end In 10 ; Donnish of Norfolk third In 15 1-t" ! CosHold of Kearney fourth. Notes. One of the beams that holds up the amphitheater broke today , but there was no serious result. Miss Ida Benedict of Melvln faint ed in the grand stand this afternoon and .caused Homo little commotion. Harrison's band of Grand Island has played Sill afternoon during thoraces races and the crowd cheered them frequently. Chairman Johnson , of the board of control , says Unit this crowd is double that of the tourney which was held last year at Grand Inland. The prize winners of Stanton wore presented with a handsome basket of flowers by Mrs. H. L. Spauldlng of this city , wife of the ox-president of the Nebraska association . Late Features Yesterday. The last feature of the program yesterday afternoon was the best. This was the feature in which Al Marks , of Stanton , smashed the state record at coupling In a superb series. The race was to run CO feet and make the coupling , three times in succession. Marks did the trio In 12 3-5 , taking exactly 4 1-5 in each case. When he had finished the crowd went wild , yelled Its lungs out and his own companions carried Al oft the track upon their shoulders. The Seward boys took second money in a mighty pretty turn. The Seward people arc carrying away a good share of the tournament money and feel proud of their runners. Other teams were from Fremont , Ord and York ( two ) . Both teams mlswd couplings , although they had bet they would beat Stnnton. In the regulation hose race , class "B , " Clarks took first money in 47 1-5 ; Ponder was second and Hold- rcge and Humboldt both missed coupling. In the hook and ladder race , class "A , " Grand Island , in a splendid run , took first money , time 42 flat. This was 150 yards , with a climb to the top of the ladder. Albion was sec ond. In this team one man was dragged for a long way , materially affecting the run. In class "B" the Pierce boys made a hit , going in 49. This is the first team Pierce has sent out and they made good. In the second heat of the firemen's handicap foot race , the following qualified : Halner , of York ; Sharp , of Stanton ; Bennish , of Norfolk ; Caulleld , of Kearney. This is ex pected to develop some surprises to day. So far Halner , of York , has beat the crowd and York people arc willing to stake their all upon him. WEDNESDAY WRINKLES.

WHAT THEY DID LAST NIGHT , Business Portion of the City Was Like the Midway on Some Big World's Fair Grounds. [ From Wednesday's Dally. ] Norfolk avenue , down town , was a perfect midway last night. With doz ens of shows , games and special amusement attractions , the hundreds and even thousands of persons who were out in the open air had plenty to do , nnd then some. It wns like a night at some world's fnir , on the streets of all nations , so to speak , with everywhere some'ihing different , something , indeed , to attract the cur iosity. The dnnce had its share of the merry crowd. In the hot night they waltxed and two-stopped until they couldn't rest , and then they danced again. The street shows were all pretty well patronized and the theatre did fairly well. The streets were jammed with a gay crowd of revelers for several hours. With all of the frolicsome spirit of the Mardl Gras , the merry makers kept up their continuous per formance until nearly midnight. They cake walked back and forth , up and down , in and out ; they surged here and there and everywhere , nlm- lessly and in jollity , smashing ono nnothor with hnndfulls of confetti and blowing rubber squawkers. While the Jam was immense nnd the fun intense it Is believed that to night and tomorrow night , with fav orable weather , there will be much larger crowds on the streets and the fun will bo fast and. furious. The crowd that was out for a time seemed to have reserved some of its best fun for the nights that are to follow. [ From Thursday's Dally.J Last night ( ho streets of the city were more crowded than ever with It Doisn't Scare Folks to be told the truth about Lion Coffee T.he ncare-crow coffees nre those that hide tintlcrn BlailnK of factory egK . glue nnd lucli stuff.
