Sunday was one of the best ball players in the National League 20 years ago, and he still loves baseball, but evidently his love for sporting ev- ents ends just before you get to prize fighting. Governor Gillett, however, seems to be standing as he is backed by the strongest legal and civic administration authorities in San Fran- cisco, it may be tjiiestioned if the anti- fight crusade gets very far. District Attorney Fickert, who was elected with M !Vi V' VV ELLS Bow gram advertised .by an energetic committee, was carried out here today in splendid weather, and in the presence of a large number of sight-seers, whose ranks were swelled considerably by an influx of the residents of the sur- rounding country.

When he gets through playing ball he can make a good living in a museum ot living anatomv features, not the least of which was a very fine display of farming imple- ments and machinery. The town band enlivened the proceedings with a few selections i of choice music. Directly after the parade the point of attraction was the hall ground, where teams re- presenting Bow Island and Burdett engaged in what proved to be enjoyable game, from Bow Island's point of result of I in favor of the Island being a fair crit- erion of.-the play of the two teams. The afternoon was devoted to a splendid program of races, some of which proved exceedingly interesting.
