Just tho number of visitors in town
yesterday would bo hard, to accurately
estimate, but tho numbor was certain
ly not far short of Ave thousand. Tho
bulk o these visitors arrived' after j
twclvo o'clock noon, although the
streets were crowded during tho fore
noon hours. Moro than four-fifths of
people camo by auto and tho average
person was almost staggered by tho
number of cars parkod around the
garages and on tho side streets.
Tho advertised feature of the day
were of course the auto races, and
other than these not much had boon
prepared for tho entertainment of tho
crowd. At ten o'clock a parade was
given in which tho Homo Guards ofj
Brady and of this city marched as ulil
also a small detachment of tho Red
Cross, tho Boy Scouts and a very
creditable number of tho Homo Guard
cavalry troop. In lino was tho Home
Guards band, tho Dickens band and
tho Homo Guards drum and buglo
corps in white uniforms presenting ai
very natty appearance The repres-l
entation of tho North Platto Guards
was less than half that oxpoced this!
being due to the fact that nearly all
business houses kept open until noon,
thus- prohibiting employes from being
In-line. The Brady Guards showed up
strong and gave evidence that in tho
short timo thoy have been organized
they have been well drilled. Following
tho parade patriotic exercises were
held at tho court house park, these
including selections by the- two bands,
and a male gleo cjub, the reading of
tho declaration of independence by
M. B. Crosby and an address by J. J.
Halligan. Immediately aftor theso ex
orcises tho cavalry troop gavo a very
creditable drill on south Dewey street.
In tho afternoon o?rprybody , went
to tho races, and in the evening there
-was a concert by the band and a dance
nt the K. C. hall.
The weather during the day was
Ideal for a celebration, the forenoon
being cool and tho afternoon not ex
cessively hot''

Driving a car that was entered as
a .Hudson spoclal, but which had parts
qf other makes assembled, King
Rhlloy, of Oshkodh, tho promlor driver
ofi western Nobraska took first money
injboth tho ten-mllo and tho fifty-milo
raco yestorday afternoon. In tho
twenty lap raco tho ipurse was $500,
of-which Rhlloy'sv share was $300; in
tho hundred lap ovont tho purflo was
$1,000 of which $1,000 wont to Rhlloy.
With ovor 2.200 norsons in tho
grand stand, noafly aa many in the
bleachors, with 8Q0 cars'linod around
tho track or In tno back ground, oach
containing not less than nn average of
four persons, and with at least 1000
standing at such points of vantage ns
they could obtain, and Including tho
small army of car mechanics, poaco
officers, raco officials and othor of
ficial or souil-offlcial attendants, tho
tirowd that witnessed tho races wns
not much short of ten thousand. Tho
gato receipts were abowt .$9,00.0 which
did not includo tickets sold in town
prior to tho opening of the gates. It
waa by far tho largest crowd that over
witnessed raco events in North
Platto, and it was also tho most or
derly crowd, not a somblanco of dis
order occurring, which condition must
bo credited to tho-lack of booze joints.
The first raco up was ilvo miles with
a mirso of $150. There wero four en
tries. Lloyd Powers, of this city, tak
ing first money, W. W. Cass Bocond
and A, B. Yates of Sutherland third;
time 7:33i,i. In this raco R. E. Searlo
of Dgalalla, had ontored a Ford, but
after straightening out after tho first
turn on tho first lap tho car overturn
ed.! severely bruising tho driver, but
no bono fractures wero suffored.
In the socond five mllo raco thoro
wero but two entries, Lloyd Powers
driving an Oakland and E. M. Smith a
Dodge. This was a .pretty race, nip
and tuck most of tho timo, but with
Smith tho winner in 6:5G.
Tho third five-mile ovont was a rep
etition of tho second, Powers and
Smith being tho contestants, with tho
Yates Ford Halting ne third place.
Smith again won in G:23.
In tho ton mile event, with a $buu
pdrso, there wero flvo entries, but two
of the cars become disabled and wont
"over tho top," but fortunately no one
was Injured. Rhlloy won, easily; timo
Then came a delay of ovor an hour.
Tho'Stutz car -which, was looked upon
as a strong contender for first money
Intho fifty mllo raco, proved, ueioctivo
lirttB timing gears ana an nuompi was
made to transfer tho timer from tho
L. S. Smith Stutz car to tho racer.
This attempted change consumed over
nn hour,- and then had to no abandon
ed with tho result that tho car could
not 6ntor the raco. There wero oight
pntrlos In this event, but enrly In the
face ono was forced to withdraw.
Thoro wero really only three real con
tenders for first place, with Hhiioy
setting the peaco and maintaining it
throughout and carrying on nrst
money. A Morcer special drlven by
Farley came in second and a Chan
dler driven by E. M. Smith th'ird. Timo
ono hour and twenty minutes.
Tho timo made was somewhat slow,
due to tho soft track on tho turns,
which after the first raco was churned
into -dust and grow deeper with each
succeeding ovont. Though tho track
had boon oiled the oily dust sifted into
tho grand stand and bleachors and
white waists and dresses as well as
facos wore turned to a very dark
Attendants generally wore pleased
with the races and went homo won
