for Gen. Pershing
LACLEDE, Mo., Sept. 11. (United
Press.) "Johnny Pershing is coming
home and Linn county is a beehive,
Knighted and titled by European
crowned heads; honored and glorified
by President Wilson and congress and
praised and feted by the nation, Gen
er al Pershing will be welcomed back
to his birthplace. The date is not
definite. General Pershing responded
to Mayor B. Edmund B. Allen's ca
blegram, "Laclede, your old home,
your boyhood friends and Linn Coun
ty is calling you," replied "I have
heard the call. Will be there soon
after my arrival in the United States."
And then Laclede went to work,
preparing the home-coming. When
"Johnny" comes home to Laclede it
will be a simple affair. There'll be
no Seasar's victorious return to Rome.
"He is going to be just plain 'John
ny?' and that is just what he will
want to be," Mayor Allen said, giv
ing the keynote of the celebration.
"Lord knows he has been 'generaled'
enough by this time, and 'Johnny'
is going to sound powerfully good to
So Laclede is planning; singing,
shouting, handshaking and music and
much oratory followed by a fried
chicken dinner "on the ground" when
Johnny's in town.
The Pershing family will reunite
after the celebration. James Persh
ing, a brother or Chicago; their two
sisters, Miss Mae Pershing and Mrs.
Bessie Butler of Lincoln, Neb., will
meet again, in the old Pershing home
"Aunt" Susan Hewett, who baked
apple pies for the general when he
was a barefoot boy, will be a guest.
"Aunt" Louisa Warren, who officiat
ed at the birth of Pershing and first
bathed and clothed him, will be
another guest of honor. George F.
Davis, aged resident of Quincy, 111.,
will be another honored guest. Davis
gave Pershing's father his first job
in Laclede that, of section boss.
Prof. Smith of Chillicothe, Mo., the
living member of the committee giv
ing examinations when Pershing won
his appointment o West Point, also
will be a guest. Nejarly a score of
boyhood chums will attend.
Secretary of War Baker and gov
ernors of Kansas, Iowa, Nebraska, Il
linois, Oklahoma and Arkansas have
been invited.
Gold swords from the world pow
ers, crosses of war and other costly
gifts of recognition will be mere gew
gaws and trinkets in the life of Persh
ing on home-coming day. He will re
ceive a photograph and a revolver.
The photograph faded and worn
and fifty years old was a picture of
Tershing's mother. It was found re

J. H. Hamilton of Lacede.

John Robinson's and Its
Largest and But in This

Although old John Robinson, the
original founder of the show bearing
his name and conceded daddy of all
circus kings, has long since joined
the big parade in the "Great Be
yond," the wonderful amusement in
stitution that he created still lives and
thrives and will exhibit in Johnson
City on Friday, Sept. 19.
An event always of extraordinary
interest to big folks and little folks
alike is the traditional street parade,
and this the management of the big
circus promises will be given in all
the brilliant splendor and tinseled
glory of these fascinated features
that have so endeared the street dis
play to the public fancy and affec
The big elephants (the John Rob
inson show claims to have the biggest
herd with any circus this season) are
assured beforehand of a generous
shore of the kiddies' roasted peanuts.
The attractively carved wagons, the
allegorical floats and golden chariots,
the richly plumed and caparisoned
horses and ponies, the grotesqueries
of the clowns, the inspiring music of
many bands, the other musical con
trivances and the shrill staccato of
the steam calliope, the roaring of the
caged wild animals all these and
more besides will be seen in the in
spiring forenoon street procession.

Report of
To tha Board of Mayor and Alder
man of tha City of GreencTilla:
The undersigned, appointed by you
as Board of Equalization, beg to re
port that in accordance with notice
given through the daily paper, the
Board met in the Recorder's Office,
later transferring to the Grand Jury
Room, where they worked assiduous
ly for seven days, going carefully over
all assessments made by your Asses
sor, Mr. LaRue, and to the best of
their ability equalizing the same, one
property as compared with another,
We found that your Assessor has
been very conscientious and thor
ough in his work and we found the
valuations placed on the property
very uniform and in the main correst
His record shows that a great deal
of detr.iled attention was given to the
matter and doubtless most of the
property visited and personally ex
amined before its value was fixed
We believe that the values as now ad
justed by the Board are as nearly
correct as they can be made and rep
resent their present cash valuation
A number of pieces of property have
been sold since the Board valued
them and none so far less than the
price fixed by the Board.
In view of the fact that the pres
ent valuation is a very radical change
from the rediculously low figures at
which they have been previously as
sessed, the Board would recommend
that for the present year at least the
taxes be assessed at 50 of the val
uations placed upon the property by
the Board and the tax rate then so
regulated as to bring the requisite
amount of revenue. At the time of
assessing the property for 1920 we
should recommend another thorough
examination of all properties and
careful valuation of the same and the
assessment then be made at its full
and actual cash value with . reduced
rate to correspond.
It is very evident that a very small
percent of the personal property of
the citizens is reported. Just , how
this is ever to be arrived at and each
and every one assesed according to
what he actually should be is a dif
ficult problem to solve. We believe,
however, that a printed list of all
items usually found in a home should
be used and each room inventoried
and the property valued according
to the same standard in all homes
the Assessor visiting each home and
satisfying himself, as to the probable
value of the contents of the home
and getting direct answers to ques
tions relative to Jewelry, personal
possessions and outstanding loans.
Your Board gave due notice in the
papers that they would be in session
on August the 19th for hearing any
complaints or corrections that might
be made. Quite a number appeared
but after being shown the assess
ments of other property in the same
neighborhood seemed to be satisfied,
with a few exceptions. In the mat
ter of these exceptions the Board as
a body met on Monday, September I
1st, visited all the property in ques
tion, comparing the valuation with
surrounding property and adjusted
same to the best of their ability and
in a manner which we think will be
satisfactory to all concerned.

Boston Rioters
BOSTON, Sept. 11. Two men
and a boy were killed last night in
turbulent riots growing out of the po
lice strike. There were numerous in
juries of a minor nature to members
of mobs, police officers and state
The most serious disturbances were
in the vicinity of Scollay Square and
South Boston. Cavalrymen charged
the crowds and a machine gun was
uused, one man being killed and sev
eral wounded by its fire. At a lata
hour the mob was still uncontrolled.
Property damage was slight com
pared to that inflicted by the wild
rampage Tuesday night.
One of the most serious elements
in the complicated outlook was the
possibility of sympathetic strikes by
labor unions which have declared their
support of the policemen's union.
Like the Patrolmen's organization,
most of these unions are affiliated
with the American Federation of La
bor. The state branch of the feder
ation, at its annual convention in
Greenfield yesterday, instructed all
Boston unions to vote tonight on the
question of action to back up the po
licemen. Scollay Square was threatened all
day yesterday and well into the night.
The crowd early became riotous and
cavalrymen were sent to disperse it.
The mob surged in and out of the
square. Shots were fired and an un
identified man was killed. A woman
was wounded in the arm, a middle
aged volunteer policeman was so
badly beaten up that he was remov
ed to a hospital and three cavalrymen
were hit over the heads by bottles and
other missies and also were given hos
pital treatment. After infantry rein
forcements 'arrived the square was
iinally cleared.

When Can I Get
An Essex?
That is the Inquiry Men Now Make Con
cerning the Light Weight, Quality Car
No industry has equaled the automobile for its surprises.
And judged by the wey people everywhere have taken to it,
no car has equaled the Essex in the quickness with which it
has gained its leadership.
Some Say Advertising Did It.
There is a measure of truth to that. Rut the advertising
was not of the usual type. The Essex received the kind of
advertising that is always effective. No product has been
advertised as it has been that has not become a favorite.
Its dvertising has been the voluntary praise of tens of thou
sands who recognize Essex qualities.
The Essex is so well advertised because it fills the want so
many people have long entertained.
Everything you hear about the Essex is what motorists think
of it. At first only impressions such as came from a store room
view and a short ride were given. But those views were all
to the advantage of the Essex.
Now thousands of owners know from daily service just how
good a car the Essex is.
So the Matter of Delivery Is All
That is about the only question buyers now ask.
Call and let us show you the Essex.
