IMMENSE THRONG OF PEOPLE
' FROM EVERYWHERE.
CIRCUS PARADE WAS MISSED
The Big Barnum & Bailey Circus
Rolled Into Norfolk From Omaha
Early Tuesday Morning and Was
Greeted by Great Crowd.
The magic of the name of Barnum ,
still the trademark ot supremacy in
, the circus world , was amply attested
In Norfolk Tuesday.
It was a perfect circus day , a Sep
tember day built to the order of north
. Nebraska for the greatest show on
, earth. The crisp atmosphere nnd the
cloudless sky called to north Nebraska
to take a day off and go to the circus.
Tuesday was not alone circus day
In Norfolk , it was circus day ns well
In north Nebraska. Visitors came to
the city on the evening trains and from
the west on the morning passenger
from Chadron. A circus day crowd
- filled Norfolk avenue long before the
noon trains poured their crowds into
The first section of the Barnum &
Bailey big show arrived In Norfolk
early In the morning but It approached
the noon hour before other sections
bringing the rest of the giant circus
began to arrive.
Tents from the first section of the
circus soon converted the Union Pa
cific grounds into a gigantic city ot
tents. Nearly all the canvas of the
big show outsldo of the main tent
came In on the first section , loaded
out of Omaha while the evening per
formance was still in progress. Cook
tents , horse tents , the big animal tents
soon crowded the big circus grounds ;
clear evidence that the Olnoy grounds
could never Have held the greatest
show on earth.
Save for a llttlo more system Bar
num & Bailey tents go up like other
show tents. And the greatest show on
earth was willing to press the Norfolk
contingent of small boys Into service
In the absence of many of Its regular
crew on the delayed sections.
The amputation of the old time parade
rado was a noticeable feature of cir
cus day. It was the first paradelosE
circus that has over visited Norfolk
The absence of the parade lent greater
interest to the preliminary operations
of the big show. Another effect wat
seen in people from the farm delaying
their circus day past the noon hour.

EFFECT OF LYNCHING.
Wayne County Man Tried to Cut His
Throat Brought to Hospital.
Wayne Herald : One evil of mob
violence Is shown In the reflex on
, voak minds. A man under a delusion
that the Bancroft lynchors had dlscov
ered they had taken the wrong culprl
as the Coppel murderer nnd that they
wore after him as the real criminal is
now in the Wayne county Jail.
Sheriff Moars received a mldnlgh
call from Leslie precinct Monday nigh
with instructions to bring a doctor am
hurry , for a man had cut his throa
and was liable to bleed to death. The
call came from the Henderson home
which Is ono of'the Sullivan farms
near the old Slaughter place.
In company with Dr. Williams the
sheriff arrived at Henderson's abou
3 o'clock and found several men guard
Ing an unfortunate who had attemptei
to cut his throat with a big butche
knife and had succeeded in Inflicting
a gash about a half inch deep and two
inches long In the fleshy part of the
neck , from which ho had bled profuse
ly. After the wound was sowed up the
fellow was brought to town in the
It appears that the man had fled
from a gang of railroad laborers while
working near Fender , because h
thought they were susplcionlng him
as the Copplo murderer. He said h
escaped from their hands several day
before and had hid in the weeds ant
brush and slept in haystacks , and tha
he was glad he had got away.
He walked unannounced into th
Henderson homo , where several wo
men were preparing supper for th
threshers at that place. His action
were such that it was evident he wa
demented. But when he picked up
knife from the kitchen table am
slashed his neck , the men were calle
for nnd ho was overpowered and guard
ed until the arrival of the sheriff.
He gave his name as Joen Coleman
and is apparently about thlrty-flv
years of age. The commissioners o
insanity will have him sent to the Nor
folk asylum this week.

A call has been Issued for a meeting
to ho participated in by citizens con
tributing to the bonus for the sugar
factory and who have either taken out
no shares or have received common
stock In the Norfolk Industrial com
pany. The meeting has been called for
2 o'clock in the afternoon of Septem
ber 21 In the law office of Barnhart
and Koenlgsteln. The purpose of the
meeting , it is stated , is to take steps
to protect the interests of the holders
of common slock in the company
formed when the sugar company turn
ed the local factory and grounds over
to the Norfolk contributors. It Is the
aim of the promoters of the meeting
that the common stock should fare the
same as the preferred stock which was
issued to the guarantee committee
who at the time the bonus was first
raised were forced to make up a deficit
of about $20,000 in addition to their
own contributions to the fund. To
cover and protect the guarantee com
mittee in the former expenditure pre <
ferred stock was Issued. To prevent
this stock from receiving preferred
treatment in case the sugar factory
building should be disposed of is the
object of the meeting called a week
from next Saturday.
Battle Creek Enterprise : James
Glllesplo of Emerick was in Battle
Creek Monday for the first time since
his return from a trip to his old home
In County Denigal , Ireland. Ho had
a delightful voyage both ways and.un-
like a majority of the passengers he
escaped the usual seasickness. Mr.
Glllesple had not informed his three
brothers of his intended visit , and
after being apart for twenty years the
reunion was indeed a happy one.
Several weeks were spent in touring
through Ireland and England. Dublin
was visited and a few days were spent
at the world's exposition in that city.
Mr. Glllesplo says that Undo Sam Is
apparently little interested in this
affair , as he noticed very few American
exhibits , though American machinery
is extensively used in the country and
especially so by the farmers. As to
crops in Ireland , ho says they are very
poor on account of an extremely rainy
season. During his entire stay he en
Joyed the sight of the sun only a few
days. While In England Mr , Glllesple
visited London for the first time and
saw the principle sights In the world's
largest city. "Candidly , " he says ,
"I'd rather shop in Battle Creek ,
where the streets are fewer , cleaner ,
wider and not quite so long. " Liver
pool was also visited and it was at this
port he took passage for home. We
hear a great deal about how much bet
tor European railroads are than those
of the United States. This , ho says
is all bosh. The faro is about two
cents n mile , the same as in Ne
braska , but accommodations for the
ordinary traveler are very poor. It is
true the trains are not allowed to be
crowded as in America , but the coaches
aside from those reserved for the pin >
headed aristocracy are no more com'
fortablo than the common American
freight caboose. Hotel rates are hlgli
and the European regards the American
can only for what there may be in his
porketbook. John Glllesplo , a nep
hew , returned with Mr. Glllesplo and
will make America his future homo.
