BULL FIGHT A -SUNDAY SHOW
One of the Popular Amusements of the
FEATURES OF THE AFFAIR AS CONDUCTED
II llaa Ke Show from Mart,
and His I'irfM fion to Feed
tfcf Poor of the Great
Almost every citizen of the tTnltd States,
in spite of their high regard for the Insti
tution of their own and mother countries,
nd strong respect for the best -In human
nature everywhere, and honest distaste for
crtlelty and brutality, outside of our best
colleges, go to see the "bull fight" the
first Sunday after his arrival In Mexico,
nd most always offers some apology to his
friends for It afterward.
A few never go, quite a number attend
but once, While a larger crowd goes be
cause of having been told that "one should
see the bull fight while In Mexico, what
ever else he misled," and that the "Idea
Of being In the republic of Mexico without
Seslng a 'fight waa not to be thought of
In Other words, sort of "shamed Into going"
Instead of just going because they wanted
to and because of It being a personal affair
and from Its fascinating history, for It is
aid to be a fact that If the traveling
public whatever that may mean would
absolutely discountenance the fight, under
the rapid development of Mexico and the
Influx of English and American Immigrants,
the fight would wane; but I would hot
like to assume any responsibility when It
comes to urging a belief In that statement,
tot It seems to one who takes the trouble
to observe that, next to the "respect for
the president," the "love of the fight" Is
the first thing In the heart of the nation.
External Idea of Ball FUht.
The fight la difficult to describe, and one
can get but a vague Idea from the written
thoughts of another, but Imagine, 11 you
please, an arena upon ,the ground, about
which a fence, perhaps six feet ' high,
painted a brilliant red. There are several
gates leading Into the ring, one for the en
trance of the horses, another through which
the bulls arc driven, and the third for the
xlt of the mules bearing away the dead
animals. Surrounding the arena are seats,
one tier above the other, very substantially
built, for unlike those of the American
circus, they are a permanent thing, as the
bull fight bids fair to remain the "national
entertainment" for many decades to come.
If you can Imagine this arena of a bright,
sunshiny day, with the seats all taken at
IS and 12.50 each 20,000 of them you may
get An Idea.
Now a bull fight must be brutal there
Is no other way out of It a bull cannot be
tortured and worried, and finally killed
without brutality, and the more tantlllslng
' the torture the greater the applause and
the better the fight, for the sport Is a relic
of barbarism and a legacy from Spain,
so that the person who attends a session
expecting that the bull fight will be con
ducted upon the mild "drawing room"
style of one of our "Indian reviews" or
"exhibition battles," had best remain away
and read about It, but If they really wish
to know, as a matter of discipline to their
nerves, Just how much they can stand
and want to see a real exhibition of what
a bull can do when pitted against a "cua
derrtlla" of Spanish brutes, all skilled In
the arts Of the game, they should stimu
late themselves with the recollection that
the horses used In the ring are worn out
anyway and would not bring 2 each at
the market, and that death will be a re
lief to them; and then, there Is always
some, hope that the matador may get
i caught. . Then the dead bulls furnish food
for the poor of the city, and the taottca
used In bringing about these things are
wonderfully skillful. Then, It must never
be recorded against the taste of anyone
that they enjoyed the "grand entry," for
no other act In any of the dramas that
serve In their different ways to entertain
or amuse a pleasure loving publlo, Is iust
like this, and no other performance In the
world Is received by th,e sport loving pub
lic with such wild enthusiasm and ap
preciative applause as bull fighting.
Formalities of the Rlnx.
When the hour actually arrives, the
procession enters, headed by the arrogant
"Impressarrlo," In Spanish costume,
mounted upon a fine horse, that keeps step
to the music; this Is the "show horse"
and does not appear again.
Next eomes the "matadors," whose dig
nity and bearing are above criticism, for
they are the stars of the profession and
wear the most gorgeous uniforms. Follow
ing them are. the "banderrllleros" and
"capas," who are the aids to the prin
cipals, closely followed by the "ploadors,"
-mounted upon the horses that shall carry
them Into the fight, and more than likely
be killed under them by the bull. In the
rear comes the "masos," servants, and
nule teams, which constlttue all that will
take part In the fight. All carry banners
and are In brllllunt-hued uniform suited to

nnd the fighters take their places, each
waving their banners, and the Infuriated
bull la let. Into the arena from the pen,
from which he has been coaxed by the
throwing of the red 'mantlllcttas" before
him. which he follows blindly, and the fight
F.I Tnro a ail III Pnaltloaj.
The bull has already been maddened In
the pen, and as he enters the ring the
man at the entrance above him drives a
sharp Instrument of Iron, with a point like
a fishhook. Into him at the shoulder and
adds to his freniy. This Instrument has
a wooden handle, to which streamers of
ribbon of various colors are attached, mak
ing a striking effect. The sight of the red
capes, the applauding spectators and gen
eral surroundings Infuriates the beast and
he mnkes a mad dash for the nearest man,
whose skill In dodging is called at once Into
play, as he Jumps aside, while the bull
dashes by, only to rush at the next flag
with renewed speed and murderous Intent.
This Is railed the "capa act" and most of
the "toreros" take part and they are giver
an opportunity to exhibit their expert skill
In dodging and to show how easily and
gracefully It can be done. After this comes
the placing of the "bnnderrlllns" and the
crowd, who while applauding to the echo
show signs of a waning Interest, and the
"picador," on horseback, attracts the no
tice of the bull. As the bull rushes madly
at the "picador" he Is repelled with a
pica, but makes repeated efforts to gore
the horse, until some one of the "capas"
comes to the rescue, when he abandons
the horse and pursuos this tormentor, who
Is one of the aids to the principals.
Part Played by Picadors.
If the picador falls In making a successful
defense the homo must take the worst of
It, which la nearly always a matter of re
gret. The bull sometimes attacks the pica
dor from the side, which decreases his
chances of safety, and he must rely upon
the Ingenuity of the capos for his protec
tion If he escapes with his horse. The vic
torious picador at this crisis Is received
with deafening applause, but if in a scrim
mage the picador Is thrown from his horse
he must lie perfectly still, while the capas
come to the rescue, and by directing the
attack of the bull to themselves they effect
the escape of the picador. When a horse Is
thrown down and gored, but not wholly
disabled, it Is lashed to Its feet and made
to undergo another turn about the ring,
and many times when disembowled Is
brought into the ring again, after being
rudely stitched together by the "doctors
on the outside, and urged to another bout,
and all this for the entertainment of men
and, alas, women.
Sometimes a picador fares badly, too, and
must be helped from the arena, but In spite
of many vows. to the contrary, It Is said
that they Invariably return to the ring. It
Is In their blood. Sometimes a copa does
a pretty turn by kneeling, back turned In
front of the bull, but should the beast make
for him he would clear the spot with light
ning speed. The loreros, often without
cape or banderrlllas, dance In front of the
bull, taking the risk of dancing almost be
tween the horns, where the slightest step
would be fatal. Just to please the crowd
and make an interesting spectacle, and so
the sport is continued for half an hour.
several horses having been tossed mean

the lord high executioner Is given, and It
Is understood that one of the matadors
must now kill the bull.

This must be done by taking a position

and when the matador rushes to: the sen'
ter of the arena and throws his hat to the
audience and with banderrllla and flag
faces the bull, the applause Is at Its
height- He waves the flug Just In front of
the bull, the animal makes a plunge for

from the spectators bear witness to their
love of the amusement. The fighter bows
to the admiring audience, who throw htm
all sorts of gifts, in testimony of their ap
prestation of his skill and daring. Thin
the mules come In and drag out the dead
bull and all the horses that have batui

The placing of the bandarrllla, which Is
an Instrument of torture twenty-four
Inches long, and must be stuck into the
shoulder from horseback, la considered I
very difficult performance, and Is ao
compllshed only by those high In the
profession, and the horses used in this
case are not blindfolded, but are trained
to the work and are rarely ever gored, as
they are high bred and spirited and know
what is expected of them and are ridden
barebacked. To succeed In placing a ban'
derrilla while still seated Is a daring and
skillful feat, and to do this and escape
from the position requires not only nerve
and agility, but confidence In their abll
lty, and It, of course, calls out loud and
Other Features of the Show.
One of the most fantastic acts of the fight
Is where the mules, usually "three white
ones," bedecked in ribbons and the national
banners, come Into the arena, after the
matador has dispatched the bull, and tri
umphantly drags him off. while the "band
plays on," and another bull Is brought In
for slaughter. Unless from three to six
bulls and from six to ten horses are killed.

There are rare occasions when a strong
and agile bull will leap out of the ring
and land in the seats occupied by the spec

but Infrequently not before he has gored
and trampled upon many helpless people.
The Imagination will easily supply the
sensation caused by a catastrophe like

and the condition has caused considerable
delay. Factories are short on goods and
are slow in their shlDments to 1olibrs. an
that the latter are running exceedingly

the spring business 40 to 60 per cent ahead
of last year, and they expect the later

as they are busy with their trade.
Slight Strength In Shoes.
A normal market Is maintained in boots
nnd shoes, with prices at the general level
of last week. In certain lines however,
there have been slight advances. Trade In
leather goods has been good, but in rubber
goods it was liphter than ever. The Job
bers are getting ready to show their fall
samples. Heavy high cut calf shoes will
te popular this fall, but patent leather
shoes also will be In favor. Even If the
hide market should get lower, as some
people predict, the Jobbers say there Is
likely to be no decline In shoes, as the
stocks In the hands of the manufacturers
have been bought at fancy figures. Prices
are bound to be stiff all year, they say.

Will Tomatoes Be Lower
' There has been no change In the situation
on spot tomatoes In the Missouri river ter
ritory, but in the eaat there is a slightly
easier feeling and some shading of prices
has been done. Yet, even on the basis of
the lowest price going In ihe eaat today
Missouri river prices are still cheaper. The
gap between the outside dealers and the
syndicate seems to be widening rather than
closing up. Evidently the syndicate has
been disappointed In finding so much stork
available outside of their holdings; still,
they seem to have every confidence In the
market and that eventually their goods win
be wanted at the prices they have estab
lished. Uulte a little business has been done In
the east on three-pound . future tomatoes.
There la no disposition on the part of the
packers to change their views, as they re
port that there is very little profit in to
matoes at the present price for futures,
when they are paying 18.60 to $9 per ton for
the raw material. The prices on futures
going today will not admit of a 10-cent
price on tomatoes to the consumer. There
Is one significant fact that should be born
In mind that Is, that the price for raw ma
terial Is pretty nearly 100 per cent higher
than the prices paid the growers In years-
previous to as a natural consequence
of this high basis of price there will be an
enormous aareage of tomatoes planted. The
Inevitable results, with an ordinary yield,
will be an unusual supply or the raw ma
terial, with con3eauent lower prices during
the season. Well posted buyers are nrmiy
of the opinion that lower prices will prevail
on the canned article before the goods are
ready for the market.
There Is no change to report In com.
much goods being still available at low
prices. There Is nothing In the situation
which justifies the Jobber in selling a case
of corn below 66 cents per dozen, for the
poorest quality, and 70 cents for high grade
The demand for gallon canned goods Is
something unusual. With the possible ex
ception of gallon pumpkin we have seldom
seen such a bare market at this season of
the year. During the last week gallon ap
ples have seen a further advance and gallon
apricots and peaches are more nrmiy neid.
Reports from the Pacific coast Indicate
that the coming crop of apricots will be ex
ceedingly light. After the bumper crop of
last season a light crop might naturally Be
expected this year. Reports Indicate that
the trees are not putting out anytmng line
their usual amount of blossoms; some re
ports say not over 76 per cent of the usual
quantity. There Is, therefore, an unusually
strong feeling both in canned ana uriea
1-runes are pern ape me strongeai. rau
on the list, with the exception of apricots.
Raisins are quiet, a little easier reeling
prevailing, but outside of this one article
the market shows unusual strength.
Though raw sugars have advanced i to 4
cents in the last week, the local Jobbers
have male no change in quotations. K
finers report a considerable Increase In
activity In the market.
Owing to the open weamer me volume or
the winter-made cheese product Is greater
than last year, and this fact has naturally
affected the market. The prices are Vtitfc
lower than the quotations of the last two
or three weeks. The October-made product,
however, la very much reduced, ana it is
hardly probable the lower prices will rule
on fancy cheese before the new make Is
on the market.
The market-in coffee Is steady and cash
quotations are not changed from last week.
The month of February saw stocks re
duced by 6O7,0iiO bags. March 1 the world's
supply was 2,000.000 bags less than on the
same date last year. The dealers says tho
steady depletion of stocks will be likely to
make higher prices.
With Ury Goods Houses.
Dry goods houses report a good trade,
orders from salesmen being satisfactory
and orders on the floor numerous, though
smaller than has been the rule for several
weeks. Retailers in the city lor ine mer
chants' meeting say their trade is very
good. Longdates and similar grades were
