THE OMAHA SUNDAY BEE: AUGUST 81, 1913.
5-A ( ( Council Bluffs THOUSANDS JEE FIRE RUN Spectacle Pleases Great Crowds Along the Streets. AUTO TRUCK IN FIERY DASH Attendance at Carnival Greater Than Dver Before, While Crowds Have Fine Time In New Location. Carnival crowds made new Attendance records last night, and when the weary ticket takers ceased their labor the greatest number had passed through the sates of any day during the week. The Inrush did not end until nearly 10 o'clock and then It was checked by coming into contact with tho outpour. The Initial crowds gathered on the streets to sea the pyrotechnlo run of the tire department, and when the hour ar rived, the central portion of the town was packed with people. The spectacle wan worth a good deal more than the effort It cost to see It It was as bril liant as red fire and white light could make It, and speed with which each pleco of apparatus moved gave the thrills that people seem to want to make a spectacu lar performance really what they think It should be. And theie were plenty of thrills as tho fiery procession, led by the 10,000-pound automobile truck, dashed up tho street under circumstances where the fallable human clement could easily have caused a catastrophe. The auto truck took an extra run of a few blocks to get up speed and started leading the horse drawn vehicles at a thirty-mile gait, rap Idly distancing them as the velocity in creased to the sixty-mile limit sought Tho firemen equipped their wagons with original and unlquo fiery designs, each company spurred by the strong rivalry to excel. The result was the streets for half a mile were abloxe with glaring red light Tonight at 11 o'clock the carnival will end, and the men who have brought It about will be entitled to congratulations upon Its success. The attendance will exceed that of any former year, and there has been, less trouble and less ex pense, assuring a larger net Income and generally more satisfactory results. The crowds last night were, of the same good natured, well dressed and pleasure seeking variety that have marked each evening. Not an arrest has been made during the entire week and no complaints of bad conduct have been heard. Despite the fact that the water has not been as pellucent and plentiful as de sired, Indian creek lias provided an at tractive carnival feature, which will be rriade use of to a much greater extent at future carnivals. It was only possible to materialize one of tho oft promised gon dolas, and it was hot launched until last ovenlng. Its high prow and rear works were Illuminated by colored lights. It made an additional attraction for tho rand canal where It was launched. Tou can have a nice player piano, $335; a better one at 1375; still better player pianos, Jt50J on easy terms. A.

Carnival Location Meets Approval With the close of the carnival today the members of the Commercial club, thu carnival committee and Knights of tho rull Moon, whose unselfishness and en trgy made' It possible, are congratulating themselves upon the success that crowned their efforts. They ore especially we.ll satisfied with the demonstration of tho tact that the carnival can be mads an annual fete sufficiently attractive to In terest tens of thousands of people and the beautiful Bayllss park not be used as the stage. All admit that it was with considerable trepidation that the task was undertaken to stage the big show In tho vicinity of tho Auditorium, where the largest open tpace would be the plaza and where ont7 residence streets could bo used for a background. The conviction Is fixed that the new location has some distinct ad vantages over the park and that the night scenes are much more impressive and .larger effects can he obtained at less cost than were possible In the park. In the daytime the park was much more beautiful, but the contrast Is altogether In favor of the new location when ths lights are turned on. Another pleasant feature Is that then was no material Interruptions of' busi ness or Inconveniencing of the public. There was also still less annoyance to owners of property and residents on the streets Inclosed. There wcro few If any complaints of noise and annoyance There has been plenty of noise in the first half of (he nights, but the strict observance of tho decision to clear tho grounds after 11 o'clock has brought a quietude and silence that has been al most painful by the sharpness of the contrast The closing of the streets has prevented the market gardeners and early morning hucksters driving down Washington avenue, and this has les sened the usual racket to which the res! Jents have become accustomed. "It has been so still around hero after mldnlghj and In the early morning that you could hoar a pin drop," said James Saguln, one of the nearest residents. "All of the show people and the animals are tired out, and they all sleep soundly until late In the morning. There has not been a bit of reason for complaint on the core of noise." The carnival managers realize the treat possibilities that lie in the use of Indian creek and the Auditorium, and there will be some bold engineering don when It comes to the planning of another farnlvat Mincer Carries Off Prizes at the Fair Dr. Maok Hanchett returned yesterday from the state fair at Des Moines.

Oliver to attend the Old Settlers' picnic. Mrs. Muccl and Mrs. Oliver remained there the guests of friends for a few days. Mr. Muocl is confident that It was the largest gather ing ever held in any small town In the state. The estimates were that more than 10,000 were present. The town was en tirely too small to hold the automobiles In which the majority of them went to the picnic, and it was necessary to line up the curs all around tho suburbs. Mrs. Isabelle Strong, aged 76 years, died at the Clarlnda hospital yesterday. The body arrived here last evening for burial. It was taken to the Woodrlng under taking rooms, where It will be held until this afternoon.

A. B. Adams, pastor of the church. Burial will be In Walnut Hill cemetery. Mrs. Strong Is survived by her husband, Clark Strong, one daugh ter, Mrs. Anna Beyer, both residing here, and one son, Lewis, living at Ogden, Utah. Farmers driving Into town from lone distances to attend the carnival report the roads to be In about as bad a con-' dltlon as ever known. The long absence of rain has left the earth dried out and in excellent condition to be powdered Into dust Vehicle wheels have worn deep holes In tho roadways and these present the disagreeable phenomenon or "chuck holes." Tho roads are covered with from two to six Inches of dust, which offers no reststence, when the wheels of vehicles drop Into these cavities. Drivers say that a speed of twenty miles an hour Is as great as It Is safe for an automobile to be driven on any of the- dirt roads with the exception of those having a gumbo surface. All of the gumbo roads in the bottom are reported to be nearly free from dust and to be about as smooth as asphalt whore the road drag has been used at the proper time.

Council Bluffs Coroner's Jury of Opinion Shooting Was in Self-Defense According to tho evidence submittal at the coroner's Inquest yesterday afternoon, Theresa Russell, tho young nogross who shot and killed Earl Edwards 8tone, nor paramour, was acting In self-defense Four witnesses, two of whom wete offi cers who made the arrest, and the yo.inr woman herself, gave the evidence. Tho verdict of the Jury was that "Stone came to his death from a pistol shot wound from a weapon fired by the woman nnd we bellevo sho shot In self-defense. ' The Jury was composed of W. C. Boycr und T. F. Flood, aldermen from the Fifth and Sixth wards, and Frank Levin. Levlna Fisher, keeper of the roomlwr house on Avenue C where the shiotlng occurred, and William Qoynor, a North western dining cor employe, were a: '.he house when the Bhootlng occurren, but wore unable to give any material evi dence, except as to tho friendly relation ship existing between the man and the woman. According to their story and the talo told on the witness stand by tho young woman herself, both were In tho happiest frame of mind tlvo mlnutas Do fore the man was killed. The girl said the man accused her of Infidelity, which she denied, and that n sudden and violent quarrel followed. Ed wards, or 8tone, had rocently purchwd a second-hand ,32-callber revolver and this was lying on tho bod upon which they were reclining. The girl on the witness stand told with considerable detail all that happened. She averred Stone declared he would kill her and that he was choking her. In her struggles her hand struck the te- volvcr Just as bo reached for it. She got it first and began shooting bltnd'.y. She said she had no lntontlon of killing him. but was trying to break his strangle bold. The coroner's verdict does not free tho woman and she will probably be Indicted by the grand Jury, with, however, but little prospect of conviction. Sho was taken back to tho city Jail and will prob ably be formally arraigned In police court today. A few hours before the shooting Stone purchased a 32 kodak and snapped the woman's picture among his first exocrl- mcnts. This roll of films was devMopod yesterday and the pictures appeared. This corroborated her testimony in rela tion to the friendly condition that pre vailed up to a few minutes before tho tragedy. Pictures tor Everybody Carnival Wert.

Miller yesterday filed In the district court formal resistance to the payment of tho claims that have been filed against the estate of Mrs. Ann By bee, who sought to give her 310,000 farm to the county. He Is acting In behalf of the newly found heirs, sister, nieces and nephews of Mrs. Bybee, who now appear as the claimants of the estate as the sole heirs of her estate. They are Mrs. Mary Blgler, sister, 82 years old, residing at Plctou. Nova Bcotta; Roblna T. Arthur, niece, living at Portland, Me.; William Arthur, nephew, residing at Plctou, and Mrs. Ellen S. McDonald, living at Upper Settlement, Dalhousle, New Brunswick: all of whom have been discovered since the stepchildren of Mrs. Bybee began the suit that prevented tho gift of the farm to the county. In their interest the attorney attacks the claim of 3133 tiled by Adallna Ran som, stepdaughter, for nursing Mrs. By bee during her last sickness and tho furth er claim of 31.423 for nursing the aged woman throughout many years. The allegation Is made that the final nursing occurred only through the month of Do comber, 1910, at the rate of 315 a month and that If tho period set up In the claim Is correct the total bill would be but 367.60. The contention Is made that the stepdaughter was to receive all of tho money In the First National bank in this city at the time of Mrs. Bybee's death In full for the core she had long given the aged woman. At the time the will was drawn In 1910 the amount In the bank was 31,425, but when Mrs. Bybeo died there remained a balance of 31,300. The contention Is also made that tho funeral expenses, aggre gating more than 3400, can only be paid from this money and not from the pro ceeds of the farm. The attornoy points out that none of the bills have been ap proved by the administrator.

SECRETARY ON LECTURE TOUR John LI nil Instructed to Act nt Ills Qvrn Discretion ns to Stnylnar nt Vern Cms or (loins; to Cnpltnl. WASHINGTON, Aug. M. President Wilson left Washington yesterday for tho summer capital at Cornish, N. II., still hopeful of favorable culmination of the negotiations undertaken by this coun try to bring about peace In Mexico. Although no affirmative action on cither side h.id been reported up to the time of the president's departure, en couraging dispatches were received from Nelson O'Shaughncssy, In charge of the American embassy at Mexico City, bear ing on the general situation. These reached tho president a few hours before train tlmo and led him to determine upon a short rest over Labor day. Nothing In tho advices from Mexico City gave the administration officials causa for particular anxiety, and It was tho general conviction that a lull In the diplomatic exchanges would bo beneficial to all concerned. The president, it Is known, feels that good may como from an opportunity for the position of this government, as announced in his mes sage of Wednesday, to "sink In." I.I nil's Inntrnctlon. Excitement subsiding over tho exchango of proposals and replies would, It Is bo lloved, lead to further negotiations be tween tho officials of Mexico City nnd John Ltrid, the personal representative of tho government Mr, Llnd, It was as serted tonight had been Instructed from Washington to continue to act at his own discretion as to whether he should await developments at Vera Cruz, or return to Mexico City, Up to a late hour, no dis patches had boen received at the State department from Mr. Llpd. Secretary Bryan sold before leaving for an overnight Chautauqua trip In Pennsylvania that he believed tho onvuy would remain In Vera Cruz tonight Early In tho day Mr. Bryan conterrnd with the president over tho repl of Scnor Gamboa, Mexican secretary 'of for eign affairs, to Mr. Llnd's second noto They also considered a message sent by Mr. Llnd to Washington yesterday after noon. That these latest communications gave a reason for hopeful expectations was frely admitted. Opentnir for Future Moves. Mr. Llnd, It was reported, probnbly would make the next move In the nego tiations, which tho president emphatically asserted In his message- had not been closed and It Is believed resumed on the Initiative of either nation. The fact that the Mexico City officials In their second noto of reply had receded from the de mand for an exchange of accredited am bassadors, It was pointed out left an opening for futuro moves. Tho view was expressed that tho Gamboa reply to the second American note might actuate Mr. Llnd to address a third note to tno offi cials of the Huorta government Acting at his own discretion, It was suggeilod, tho American representative mlgnt for ward a message to Mexico City from Vera Cms before determining upon go ing to the Mexican capital In person tor a renewal of direct negotiations. Tunmltr on Job. Before deciding to go to Cornish, Pres ident Wilson discussed the sltuatlui at length with cabinet officers and arrange ments were made whereby be could be notified at onco of any development. Should anything happen to require nls presence iri Washington before Tuesday he planned to return at a moment's no tice. Mr. Tumulty, secretary to the pres ident, remained lri Washington touljrh to be in direct touch with developments, planning to go to his New Jersey home tomorrow, howover, upon the return of Secretary Bryan. Hundreds of telegrams and letters reached the White House today from all parts of th country expressing approval of President Wilson's message on Mexico. Theso were not made public, but tho president Is known to have been highly gratified at the sympathetic reception his course had received. "Very KnconrnirlnK." PHILADELPHIA, Aug. 29. "I am glad to say that the Mexican matter looks very encouraging at the present tlmo and I believe It is going to grow brighter every day," declared Secretary of State William J. Bryan today at Doyloatown, where he" delivered a lecture. "I an ticipate no trouble, believing that good sense and Judgment on the part of Mexico will eventually prevail." When asked If It was true that Presi dent Huerta has requested John Llnd, President Wilson's personal representa tive, to return to Mexico City for tlio purpose of arranging a compromise on the proposals of the United States, Mr. Bryan said: "Mr. Llnd is still at Vera Cruz. How long he will remain, there and whether he will go to Mexico City for furthnr negotiations, I am not prepared to say. That Is something that has not been decided."

IMgc, convicted of the same charge, Tho witnesses and the evidence ot the government wore with tew excep tions Identically the same, the testimony was almost the same, nnd, so tar as could be judged, tho tactics of the de fense were the same.
