Walla Walla Crowded With People
to Witness Their New Celebration
and Help Make More Dust
Wall Walla, Wash., Sept 2. (Spe
cial.) With a crush of people seldom
equalled in Walla Walla, labor day
and "straw day" was celebrated yes
terday. The crowd was all that a lot
of extra policemen could control.
People went wild and rushed hither
and thither at their own sweet will,
doing as they liked, irrespective of
arrangement or program. It was im
possible for a speaker to bo heard,
and the nrocram of addresses and
music was given up, save such music
as the band could furnish at intervals.
In the plans for the celebration it
was anticipated that a crowd of three
or four thousand people would be in
attendance, and entertainment was
arranged upon that basis. Yesterday
at 1:30 o'clock when the parade start
ed from the city it was estimated
that fully 10,000 people were on the
streets, and of these at least 7,000 or
8,000 followed the procession to the
grounds a mile from the city, outers
went home, or remained about the
city, fearing the crush and the In
tense heat.
At the grounds the men in charge
of the barbecue took in tho situation,
and began to serve the meats and
bread. It took nearly two hours to
serve the crowd, and until nearly the
last had called for their portion tho
supply held out very well. The bar
becue was about all there was of the
celebration, but it proved a very in
teresting feature, and every one
seemed to be pleased with the results
of the day's-recjeation.
The parade occurred at 1:30, and
was participated in by the printers,
carpenters, "painters, iron moulders,
and cigar, makors, each with a strong
union organization in line. Following
tho, unions w.aB a line of farmers'
.-wagons' with', hay racks and header
bedB'rtly hilled with straw, some
drawn wfqur and some with six
horses or mulee In each of the
wagons was crowded from 50 to 100
persons, men, women and children
making up a Jolly crowd.
The disorganization of the celebra
tion was caused by the shortage of
room in the grove selected for the
thousands of people who came. When
the last of the crowd had surged
through the gates there was scarce
ly standing room to be had anywhere.
The barbecue was the socond in tho
history of Walla Wala extending
over half a century. Tho first 'was
given in November, 1858, in honor of
tho olectlon of a Walla Walla man to
the legislature of the territory of
It was intended that reports of
the work done on the county roads
would have been given out yesterday,
but -tinder the circumstances tho com
mittee will take time to consider the
different phases pf the work, and re
port fully: It is expected that the
showing will be far In excess of any
thing anticipated heretofore.
