GRAVES OF EIGHTY COMRADES
FiTTING EXERCISES MARK DAY

Excclent Music a Feature of the
As if in hearty endorsement -of the
self-sacrifice and past achievements
of the old soldiers, both dead and
Jiving, Memorial day was one of
bright sunshine, heaven smiling
down u iion the living members of the
Grand Army of the Republic as they
decked the graves of their fallen
comrades, four score in number.
Since the last march, the number has
materially decreased, some of the
boys who walked steadily upright
last year being now numbered with
those whose graves received the lov
ing ministrations of those who re
main. The line of march in the morning
started from the Plaza and proceeded
to Ashland cemetery, where the rit
ual exercises of the G. a. R. were
conducted by Post Commander Mat
tingley. Mrs. Mattingley, president
of the W. R. C, read the W. R. C.
service. The ceremonies were im
pressive and brought many a lump
into the throat. Loving hands
dropped flowers and placed colors
upon the graves of the heroes, the
old soldiers. Relief Corps, national
guard and school children participat
ing in the services.
From the cemetery the line pro
ceeded slowly to the Chautauqua
building for the exercises of the day.
Here a large crowd was gathered,
about 1,000 people having come out
to hear the words of praise for the
country's defenders. Prof. Isaac's
well-trained chorus, of thirty voices
rendered several appropriate num
bers, "True to the Flag" being given
by the choir and "Suwanee River"
by six little girls and chorus. The
latter of these numbers was especial
ly enjoyed, the girls singing the stan
za and the choir and congregation
joining in heartily on the chorus. A
mixed quartet sang "Brave Heart,
Sleep On," with pleasing effect. Mrs.
Perozzi delighted the audience with
her reading and . Comrade Hicks
stirred the hearts of all with his rec
itation of Lincoln's Gettysburg
Prof. George A. Briscoe, as orator
of the day, spoke on the cost of
peace, giving convincing facts and
statistics to show the great advan
tage of the peace policy over the war
policy. The old soldiers and the.
large audience were charmed by 'the
patriotic, utterances of Prof. Briscoe,
who held them stea.lily from first to
last. Prof. Briscoe spoke of the
enormous sacrifice entailed in the
wars of the past, in other nations as
well as our own, pointing with pride
to the spirit that prompted the boys
of '61 to take up the cause of their
country, and praising the fortitude
of the women who stayed at home
waiting in anxiety for the news of
loved ones who often did not return.
The speaker touched many a respon
sive chord during his address, the
full text of which is printed upon an
other page. The exercises were fit
tingly closed with the singing of
"America" by the chorus and audi
ence, the thousand voices joining
heartily in the national song.
Beautiful in its simplicity and as
impressive as it was beautiful was
the marine service of the Relief
Corps, which was held directly after
the exercises in Chautauqua build
ing. With beautiful roses the ladies
of the Relief Corps honored the
memory of "those who go down at
sea," and as the flowers were borne
down Ashland creek the service was
completed in a tribute to the un
The basket dinner in the G. A. R.
hall at noon was attended by 150,
who matched stories of the past and
indulged in reminiscences as if the
events of the '60s were only yester
day. The afternoon was given over
to decoration of the graves in Harga-
dine and Mountain View cemeteries,
the old soldiers going informally to
these places and paying their tribute
of love and respect to the dead.
Members of the G. A. R. and W.
R. C. are loud in expressions of grat
itude for the kindnesses and favors
bestowed by all who participated, the
Ashland band, Prof. Isaac and his
splendid chorus. Prof. Briscoe for
his stirring address, Mrs. Perozzi,
and all other citizens who lent their
efforts to make the celebration of tne
national day a success. The old sol
diers were well pleased with the ser
vices rendered, as were all those who

AIRSHIP RUNS AMUCK
One Man Killed and Several Injured
in Seattle When Machine
Dashes Into Crowd.
Seattle, Wash. George Quimby, a
civil engineer, was killed and a score
of spectators injured Friday after
noon at the Meadows when Aviator
I Clifford Turpin, striving to avoid an
amateur photographer crossing, the
ftu-e .tifick. dashed full tilt into the
crowd 'before the grandstand.
The left aileron, or rudder wing,
of the aeroplane struck an Hron pipe
in front of the judges' stand at the
edge of the race track, Turpin hav

i machine swung to the left, pivoting
i on the iron pile, and crashed full
j into the great crowd massed in front

j Quinby was standing near the
judges' stand, where the machine
' first struck. As the wrecked wing
j tore loose from the iron pipe the
whirling propeller struck him with
i such terrific force that he was hurled
; back some ten feet against the
j grandstand. Many saved their lives
the moment the machine struck by
throwing themselves flat on the
ground, escaping the moving planes.
With the sound of shivering tim
bers and snapping steel, the machine
brought up with a crash against the
front row of boxes in the grand
stand, falling directly into the

INTERRUPTEDLY FOR TWO DAYS-MANY NOYEL FEATURES
Arrangements for the carnival are
now complete and the dawn of Wed
nesday morning promises to see the
entire city decked in gala attire for
the big event of the season. In re
sponse to the request of the ladies
that the homes and business houses
be decorated for the occasion, many
have signified their willingness to
follow out the suggestion and others
are making plans for decorations
that will make Ashland present the
most significant holiday appearance
it has worn for years. It is hoped
that everyone in the city will aid in
ths matter, to the end that the spirit
of gavety may b. in evidence on
every hand. The gayer the colors,
the better the effect. Bunting, flags
and flowers will figure in the deco

band, with the retinue of double and
single carriag3s, horseback riders,
bicycles and comic floats in regular
order. In the afternoon the queen
will again be in evidence as leader
of the auto parade. Many elaborate
floats are being prepared for both
these events and the parades prom
ise to be more spectacular than those
of last year.
On Wednesday afternoon will oc
cur the ball game on the high school
grounds between the fats and leans,
with Amos Nininger as captain of the
fats and L. J. Orres leading the

city and will be chock full of hair
raising episodes. Admission 25 cents.
The home talent play Wednesday
evening will be full of laughter from
start to finish. The play is a com

been working hard. The play is now
ready, thanks to the efficient drill
work of Mr. Purdin. This feature ot
the carnival will be a pronounced
success and should meet with hearty
support. A royal theatre box will be
fitted up for the queen and her at

upon the situation as follows:
"The federal government, is un
able to cope with the situation.

20 to several hundred men wander

towns. Culiacan was cleaned out
only a short time ago.
"While Americans are treated with
respect and consideration, the condi

of natives are horrible. Scores of
native men have been ruthlessly
murdered and the women and young
girls mistreated. Ninety per cent of
the towns attacked by the bands
have been taken. Everything is in

attended by a good-sized audience.
The subject under discussion had to
do with the merits of Socialism and
was handled in a very capable man
ner by C. A. Strickland for the So
cialists and M. C. Bressler for the
amis. Both speakers presented con
vincing arguments and held the large
audience without difficulty. The
general opinion prevails that the out

No little excitement, was caused on
Bauni and Granite streets last Friday
evening about. 5 o'clock, when a teatii
of horses driven by Harold Barney
on the local gn.rery dt livery'syst 'in
ran ivvny and crashed into' a" light:
on Cr,:nite si, cel. The team
had been left nt the corner of Church
and Almond while the diht r was de
livering goods to near-by houses. An
inviting whisp of grass furnished tlm
original inducement. Once started,
the team saw liaimi street stretching;
out in front and the memory of for
mer escapades of the kind put the
thought into action. They tore down
Batini street, to Granite, headed
straight Tor the residence of E. Pell,
and in attempting to round the cor
ner crashed into a light pole about a
foot in diameter, breaking it off at
the base, wheie it was considerably
decayed. The pole fell upon the
backs of the horses and it was feared
for a time that one of them was lu
jured. Both were on the job on
Saturday, however, and seem none
the worse for their encounter. The
wagon was badly demolished, while
groceries strewed the wake of the
flying animals for two blocks. Mr.
Pell's beautiful residence was saved
from damage by the intervention of
the kindly pole, the team being head
ed directly for the large plate glass
window in the front.
With the breaking of the pole,
high power wires were severed and
there was considerable jumping
about in tnat vicinity for a few mo
ments to avoid electrocution. The
horses were extricated, however,
without injury to anyone from the
