We have excellent and there- fore no necessity for a street car line. 2nd. We have the cheapest and best trans- portation service in our bus lines that can be found in the United States.

The width of many of our streets is another serious obstacle. 7th. We believe the disadvantages of a street car line would far outweigh the ad- this petition is respect- fully submitted. The JOURNAL is ever ready to urge the adoption of all judicious enterprises to de- velop our lovely village. In this cnse the question it The ex- perience of larger places than ours has proved street car lines neglect of follows. The cars run so infre- quently that the public becomes disgusted We are informed on reliable that Saratoga not allow street car lines on the street because the authorities are not willing fco destroy the streets for driving. If we had bad roads and business was con- fined largely to one instead of being as on our and-water power could be had instead of which costs much it might be possible to eke out a precarious existence then on the part.of the company. Any one who expects a Chicago street car service at his door will be sorely disappointed should the line be laid. We now enjoy better advantages than a street car Hue can give in our bus lines during the and this without the obstruction of the streets. the JOURNAL commends to your carefuf consideration the good points raised in the and above and will gladly join you in granting a franchise should a time coiue when the project would be sufficiently profitable to give us good ser- and the benefits exceed the disadvan- tages. At present we are clearly not in favor of the project. A.line to Pewaukee lake would.doubtless be unanimously favored. A BOOMING SUCCESS. ONE OF THE BEST FAIRS EVER HELD AT WAUKESHA. The -Lurjre Display in FJorul cellent of Stock ami Farm Races ami the Hall Games. practically the first day of the dawned clear and cloudless. It was feared that the heavy and continuous rainfall of Monday might seriously inter- fere with the business of the but the result proved that the full amount of rain was necessary to keep down the Wednesday night the streets were dry as powder. The attendance on Wednesday was comparatively but on Thursday everyone became enthused and the crowd was counted by the thousands. The weather was simply being just cool enough to make either riding or walking a pleasure. The attendance on Friday was in excess of the sun every one was good natured and and the Fair from first to lost was a complete success. Floral hall presented a picturesque and animated hung with the na- tional colors and conspicuous and filled to overflowing with pictures and manufactured articles -of in- finite variety. The Silurian Spring with always an eye to artistic has a very attractive booth gaily decorated with National colors. Flags nearly covered the ceiling and formed a line across the front and were -crossed on the partitions. The ginger carbonated water and plain Silurian a11 of which grow daily in were'.displayed in pint and quart bottles on the in barrels and half-barrels. One could not forbear the wish that these delicious and life giving beverages were on draught. I. the has a show- case with displaying his particular line of goods. Blair Estberg occupied a booth draped in which made an excellent back ground for their attractive goods. A handsome showcase contained an elegant assortment of the most recherche toilet while the rear sp ice was filled up with pyramids of bottles of patent medicine and all the other etcetera of the drug business. H. Douglass -won the elegant bottle of perfumery offered by Eflair Estberg. The right number was and he There were guesses ranging from 201 to Estberg was the sign over a fine exhibit of gold and silver ware and jewelry of all descriptions. A fruit or nut bowl of hammered ornamented with raised work hi gold and was much while the etc. in the show case caused everyone to pause for a close inspection. On a large card- were fastened brilliant stones with numbers. It was announced that among them was a genuine diamond and all were invited to risk a guess as to the stone and its approximate with a premium to the fortunate one. Num- ber was the diamond. There were some forty odd who guessed this but E. McCann came nearest the value and secured the prixe. The value was and the amount guessed was the made a hand- some display in his particular line of work in a frame G x feet. One of the fine speci- of photographic skill in this frame is the picture of M. D. which looks as natural as our worthy old friend himself. in a large frame eight by four feet made a good and G-. Maim had a large frame of very handsome work. W. G. Mann has the finest collection of photographs at the County Fair that has ever been on exhibition here. It is admitted by our stranger guests as well as residents that Il0ur has no competitor. D. D. O'Brien has a collection of eleven portraits. The picture of Mrs. was much admired as a very truth- ful portrait. Another collection of crayons was entered by Emma C. Gillett.. A very pretty speci- men was a in Time'' and already carries the blue ticket. The pictures are not executed in the same manner as those of D. D. O'Brien and therefor do not come in the same class. One of the largest spaces was occupied by Gimbel of and was roof- ed''in by bunting in white and blue. Here was found a complete assortment of ladies' cloaks up to forty dollars' lace and heavy curtains and a variety of house furnishings. The articles were on sale and each had its value affixed. From the showing here we may whisper to the ladies that plush still holds high favor. A. Jacobsou had a fine exhibit of ladies and children furs and gentle- men's clothing. A very attractive corner at the rear end of the Floral Hall was given to the House- hold sewing machine. Some of the work exhibited appeared at a distance of a few equal to a fine oil painting. One article especially worthy of is a picture of the machine done by and another is a lace curtain embroidered on representing a value of about The machines themselves are handsome and re- present the latest achievements in sewing machine construction. Pianos and organs also were exhibited in this J. of the has a conspicuous place and shows some excellent specimens of work. A Masonic banner is very much admired and the work and are finely executed and very handsome. A piano in light mahogany in this booth attracted much attention. M. Horning suggested the coming win- ter by a display of cooking and heating. The latter filled in with flame colored have a Christmas look. C. A. Haertel has also a good assortment of stoves. A handsome corner was that occupied by Chus. whose exhibit of fine furniture elicited great praise. It contained a parlor set of five in red with shell a parlor set of on antique oakj a bed room set of San Domingo mahog'- any and many other of the highest grade of excellence. James made a specialty of men's and boys' and offered a variety of all such from garments suitable to the little lad in kilts to the most recent devices in fur trimmed overcoats for the fashionable about M. L Butter Held has a booth devoted ex- clusively to wall paper and curtain shades. Some of the latter are especially worthy of notice. The Judges gave the oil painting of Claude Butterfield's illustrating Gen. Grant and at Battle of Lookout a fine compliment by stating that it should i placed beside the work of profess- ionals rather than amateurs. The Judges expressed themselves as painting shows wonderful strength and ability in an artist so young. The color and action of the picture F show careful and the artistic whole gives rich promise in the Mrs. Brickies contribution is a lifelike can- vas back marvino some circu- lar placques and a pair of handsomely orna- mented jars. Mrs. Annie Estbcrg has on exhibition a handsome moonlight two female fruit and many other samples of her artistic skill. Mrs. Dora presents a large can- depicting a harvest copied from the well known picture in the Lay ton Milwaukee. Some very realistic fruit land and sea flowers and fabric painting. In this Dept. were soms fine paintings among which weae those executed by Miss Amy Hadfield. Mrs. Rrobinson had some pretty specimens of floweJts and fabric and china paintfng. In addition to tLose already this department contains many articles worthy of but it was impossible to ascertain the names of the contributors. The general merchandise store of Pox have here their establishment in min- and display a very extensive line of wearing house furnishing fancy articles etc. L. Gove is evidently .looking forward to the coming winter. He has a very fine exhibit of fur fur o.vercoats and gentlemen's wearing apparel. He hadi also a tmndsjme showcase of fine snoes. That Dept. devoted to specimens of femin- ine skill was particularly attractive. Al- mosfc every conceivable thing that delicate hand can make was here in its highest de- gree of perfectness. This department com- prises clashes 20 and a space devoted to proofs of youthful dexterity and the miscel- laneous which contained articles not otherwise classified. Class 23 contains bed specimens of drawn fancy aprons articles of articles of all of value. Class was especially noticeable for em- broidery on all sorts of material and with all kinds of thread. The chenille and tinsel embroidery was very beautiful. An exquisite piece of work was a banner in aresene. of thistles and golden and an- other of tinsel embroidery on red felt. This class also contains beautiful specimens of neckwear made of point-lace Kinsing- ton lambrequins and scarfs decorated in an infinate variety of and all handsome. y Class 30 was the crochet workr silk and cotten were all used and the result achieved was wonderful. skirts toilet shoulder sofa. pillows and even bed spreads were manue factured by the crochet needle. One of the finest articles in this collection was a pillow in sham ecru cotton made by Mrs. Martha Hadfield. In the youth's Dept. were many articles which would reflect credit on more mature skill. Here were found paper tidies of various photograph crochet fancy needle work and samples of embroidery. Of the prehape of the handsomest was a gray felt table scarf em- broidered in arasene on a golden rod pattern. The floral exhibit was very good Indeed. Mrs. L. T. of Geo. liingrose of Mr. of Genesee and Mr. making the largest entries. Mr. Ringrose made a specialty of potted plants floral ornaments. Mrs. Mallory's display of cut flowers was very complete including almost everything grown in this latitude. This exhibit added greatly to the flne appearance of the hall. Close to the flowers and mixed with them were the fruits and it was a matter of won- derment to that such a vast variety of apples can be produced in this county. Some fine varieties of grapea were on plums and quite a good showing of peaches. This exhibit was attractive and gratifying. The display of vegetable was simply mag- nificent in regard to quality and variety. A rack three feet wide on top with three lower shelves on each extending half the length of the haH was covered with the products of the market gardens. Two squashes are on one weighing 100 and the other 150 Ibs. Mammoth pota- enormous beets and cabbages and gignn- tin pumpkins were scattered about in lavish confusion. Jars of clear amber honey and delicious looking jellies and preserved fruits were on exhibition on these shelves. Wau- kesha not behind on many points has made a vegetable exhibit -of. which' she may well feel proud. In the some beautifully decorated shopping feags were a double chair pillow of mottled fancy work waste painting 'on India lamp mats and many other articles of beauty and utility. Mr. and Mrs. Gault have here on exhibition a magnificent mink lined with green plush and edged with pink felt. m Mrs. J. Jarvis has a unique and beautifu made largly of gilt and bronze spools. The top is plush and a lower shelf and the effect fine.' even brief mention of half the articles in this fascinating corner would take more time and space than is allowed to fancy work. Haynes Son have space devoted to articles of plumbing aud steam-fitt- ing. This is a subject on which all need to be informed and no opportunity for obtaining information could be better than that offered at the Fair. Howe and Hartwell rxhibit a large case of N. American birds eggs and the collection is evidently complete. Another case contains the nests of some of our best known feather- ed and several fine specimens of tbe taxidermists art. STOCK. The display stock never- exceeded this the show of fine horse fleah being es- pecially tine. John H. Paul had a remark- ably fine being his stallion John H. P. out of a full sister of and sired by Richards' with five of his get. John H. P. captured 1st premium. John W. H. John Honyager showed colts sired by John H. P. All were beauties. The Edgewbod stock J. M. showed seven which in- cluded Goldemar and live of his be- sides these' were an'Alnio Judgo Somers. He secured 1st on four yecr old and second on yearling-'filly. The baianco' were not shown at this writing. Frank Pierce secured 1st on Atlantic Chief in roadster also sweepstakes on Atlantic Chief and five of his get John Schmidt of secured 1st on a Clydes- dale stallion and Brimmer Smart 2d. Evan S. Jones of had a blue ribbon on the best Percheron while Mount of secured similar honors for Lord English shire stallion. Robert Hardy's fine- coach horse got but he had always taken first before and might possibly have been entitled to it this one of his colts took first. Cr. F. Carroll's Borland ChieF Clydesdale stallion took against three firsts heretofore. Mr. Carroll won Orst on mare and colt and second on heavy team. Lord Hope owned by John Jen- took first prize as a Clydesdale stallion. W. Sleep showed some of the handsom- est young roadsters on the ground. John Sleep carried the blue and red on three and four year olds. W. H. Pawling of Hart took first on his stallion. .Charley and second on a full brother One of the stallions was the jet black Per- cheron owned by E. B.' of Bodges Corners. He took first in his class while Cleveland owned by Charley Best oC took second. The Short horns from the Hickory Park stock farm of Hon. Caspar M. came next. There were twenty-three head alto- and to say that they were fine gives but a faint idea. The in this country and in supberb condition they can not be excelled. Geo. Harding also showed some excellent specimens of this breed. 1 F. W. of exihibited Guernseys and C. N. Griffith of the same place showed nineteen head of Jerseys. They would have delighted the heart of Capt. Enos. Jas. E. of exhibited Poland and Charles T. of Brookfleld.showed the Victoria breed. Frank Pierce and Wm. Lowrey also showed swine. In sheep the prominent exhibitors were Geo. of Charles T. of E. L. of and I. Pitcher. The exhibitors of poultry included Love Frank N. S. Cook and Jas. E. Welch. In the machinery the assortment was large and included the very latest inventions. In this department we noticed that the wide- awake firm of Haynes Son were second to none. CATTLE. H. Rust of North ex- hibited ten head of Hoi stein Friesian cattle. They were brought to the grounds without previous preparation and are probably one of the finest herds of this breed in the stiite. Rust got in premiums on them last and as they go from here to the State fair next they will probaby do as well again. THE RACES. There were two events on class and the 3-year-old stake race. In the race owned by J. took the first commonly known as Irish owned byM. second. The next three heats were a walk-away for she capturing the race.
