Parade Will Advance in Three Sec

Grand Ilall in the Evening All
Ready for Barbecue.
Visitors to Ashland tomorrow will
find the streets of the city decked
with flags, bunting, greenery and ail
forts of fandangles in keeping with
the spirit of the day. Today, store
fronts and booths are taking on their
gala attire, no expense or work be
ing spared to make the appearance
most formidable. The right of way
of the parade will be one long blaze
of glory, according to the schemes
now being carried out by merchants
and residents. That friends from
every town in the valley will find a
royal welcome in Ashland goes with
out saying, the entire community
having united in this great celebra
tion with but a single purpose the
biggest free-for-all good time ever
pulled off in this city.
The program will be carried out
as before announced, and as pub
lished in another column. Activities
on the streets will begin for the chil
dren when the toot of the merry-go-round
is heard at 7 o'clock, and for
fourteen hours thereafter there will
be no cessation of the fun. Other
attractions are taking their places
today and every train brings arrivals
for various events of the day.
The big parade is rapidly assuming
proportions which guarantee the com
mittee in charge that their work has
been entirely successful and every
one is assured that it will be the big
gest affair of its kind this region has
ever known. Jerry Thornton is mar
shal of the day and has planned to
have the parade in three sections,
with the line of march as follows:
First: Motorcycles and autos will
form on Fifth street, resting on East
Second: Floats, marching orders
and horseback riders and comics will
form on Sixth street, resting on East
Third: Human flag and children
on foot will form at Vendome Hotel
and Gresham street.
All motorcycles, floats, riders and
other participants in fir6t two sec
tions will report to farshal of the
day at junction of Fifth and B streets
for assignment in parade not later
than 8:45 o'clock.
The parade starts -promptly at 9,
moving north on Main to Laurel, then
to Mechanic, thence to Helman,
thence to Main, returning' on Main
lo Oak, thence on Oak to B. on B to
Third, on Third to A, on A to Fourth,
on Fourth to Main and disband.
The Ashland and Central Point
bands, the Grand Army fife and drum
corps and a clown band will furnish
inspiring music. Various orders be
sides the Grand Army and militia
will march. Some surprise floats and
features are in preparation.
The big barbecue will be pulled off
from 12 to 2 and will be accompanied
by music by two bands, while the
bone-gnawing contest by two clowns
will add diversion. In fact, the big
delegation of clowns that are sched
uled to be on hand throughout the
, day will keep the crowd amused from
the first to the last of the celebra
tion. If you miss anything in con
nection with the day's performances,
you will miss half of your life. .No
other celebration in the history of
this valley has ever approached the
proportions of this one, and the fel
low who stays at home will be sorry.
The clown band will keep you roaring
and countless other features that
don't appear in print have been pro
vided for your amusement. Remem
ber the salute will be heard at 4
o'clock and that is the signal to arise
and greet the day a day that will
long be remembered. If you are old,
renew your youth and be on hand for
every event of the day.
Don't forget the big dance in the
evening at the Natatoriuni. Also re
member that a regular Mardi Gras
festival is a part of the evening's fun,
- as well as swimming contests and
band concerts at the Natatoriuni.

Warden Sundry Finds Evidence of
Illegal Fishing. '
Sam L. Sandry, chief deputy fish
and game warden, on Sunday night
confiscated a new 90-foot salmon net
at the By bee bridge in this county.
This is the first evidence secured in
four years of illegal fishing with a
net in Jackson county. Heretofore
the offenses have been committed on
the lower portions of the river.
Sandry found the net Saturday and
watched until Sunday night for the
parties to return and make their
haul. When they did show up they
succeeded in getting away from the
officers, but the net was taken.
Sandry stated that It was only an
accident that he found the evidences
of illegal fishing at that place on the
river, as heretofore the Jackson coun
ty end of the river has been free of
such practices. Hereafter, however,
he will carefully watch all portions
of the stream.
The poachers were in a boat. Cen
tral Point parties are suspected.

SECOND-WITHDRAWAL OF UNDERWOOD TURNED THE TIDE IN
FAVOR OF NOMINEE-NEW YORK VOTES WITH MAJORITY
Baltimore, Md., July 3. Woodrow
Wilson of New Jersey received the
democratic nomination for president
here yesterday afternoon. His final
triumph came as the climax of a cul
mination of days of anxiety and
The final vote which determined
the contest was taken amid scenes
that for dramatic intensity have
never been exceeded in any conven

in the memory of any man now here.
Wilson became a potent factor in
the first ballot yesterday.
But it was not until Senator Bank
head of Alabama withdrew Under

Both the galleries and the floor wp
nervous and excited when Bankhead
took the stage. The Clark men had
insisted that they would hold oner
third of the delegates and block the
Wilson nomination. Their boast was
idle, however, and the Missourians
showed their chagrin by demanding
to know why Underwood had not
been withdrawn when Clark had the
majority of the deleeates.
With Alabama's action, the Wil
son victory was won. Foss of Mas
sachusetts was then withdrawn
amidst cheering and wild demonstra
tions in the galleries.
Tanimaiiy for Harmony.
John J. Fitzgerald of Brooklyn, as
spokesman for Charles F. Murphy
and the New York delegates, took
the platform and began a speech.
Fitzgerald appealed for harmony. He
made passing reference to the Bryan
episode and declared that all demo

a speech which plainly showed deep
emotion that Missouri, without har

was still for Clark.
Koll Cull Amid Disorder.
California passed when called so
that Theodore A. Bell, chairman of
the delegation, might be able to make
a "harmony speech." He declared
that the state voted two for Wilson
against 24 for Clark, but annouueed

And those nnborn shall tell its

that he would personally move later
to make the nomination unanimous.
Missouri stuck to its avowed inten
tion of remaining with Clark to the
very end. Their action in holding
firm to the very end was applauded
by every delegation ins Hie hall and
by the pro-Wilson crowds in the gal
leries. In order that the roll call
niluht be a record one and nt the
same time the nomination unani

Senator Stone to move after the vote
was announced by the chair, but be

Clark would be willing to accept the
socond place on the ticket. New
Jersey delegates, enthusiastic over
the afternoon's victory, cheered Wil
son and Bryan impartially after they
took their seats. Clark's vice-presidential
boom grew stronger, despite
a statement by Clark managers that
he would not accept. When the roll
of states started, II. II. Dean of Geor

In the meantime the leaders were
exerting every effort to catch Clark
on the telephone, and as Dean con

North Dakota placed in nomination
