PAGE FIVE WEDNESDAY, JUNE 17, 1908 .RENO EVENING GAZETTE Th e Boys9 Circus is Great Surprise Long before the hour named for th? nppearance of the parade of the Boys' circus this morning the streets of the city were crowded with pcolpcr all anxious to catch a glimpse of the pageant. The., parade was one of th. most gorgeous ever seen in Reno not excepting the big parade of the Sell3 Bros, circus In this city several weeks ago. There were many cages containing wild animals with their trainers. There was an immense Bengal tiger, a royal Nubian lion, trained m'o.akeys from Africa, and innumerable animals from the wilds of India, South America and Australia. SNAKEMANIA APPALS CROWD. The wonderful snake charmer, Snnkemania, was even. In the parade and the way in which she fondled that immense boa constrictor Avas appalling. Clowns were out in abundance. In the rear of every cage were these fu.nny persons, all followed by small hoys and all creating amusement for the crowd on the side walks. In the parade was a large old fashioned stage coach, loaded with passengers and guarded by messengers with rifles, and follwoing this coach, were more than twenty cow boys all these Indian braves carried tomahawks, bows, arrows and scalping knives and their war paint and feathers, they presented a terrifying appearance. The music for the parade was fur bished by the Boys' band in a large Right Rev, Thos. Grace Here for the Dedication I red (band wagon drawn by four pranc ing horses. Following this band wagon were more than twent ycow boys all fully armed and all prepared to battle this afternoon with the Indians at the circus grounds. MANY DARING FEATS. This afternoon the boys are giving a performance before a crowd of more than one thousand people at their icrcus grounds at the Boys park. The circus was interesting a.nd exciting from beginning to end and many marvelous feats were performed. There was a daring dash for life from the top of a large tree along a slender wire to the ground, by a boy holding to a strap by his teeth. There was a high dive into a tub containing four feet of water and many hair raisins feats on the flying trapeze. The tumbling and tight rope walking was excellent and the rose races were sensational and exciting in the extreme. The side show containing the famous snake charmer, the wonderful fat woman, the liivng skeleton, the wild man of Borneo, the only wild man in captivity, the dwarfs, the tatooed man and many other wonderful freaks drew an immense crowd. Kven Little Egypt was there and you should have seen her. The Boys circus was an immense success in, every way and resulted in the boys clearing a goodly sum for the improvement of their play ground. DRILLING STARTS AGAIN AT OIL WELLS lit. Rev. Thomas Grace, bishop oi the Sacramento diocese of the Catholic church, which includes western Nevada, arrived in Reno last night to attend the dedication ceremonies of Reno's new cathedral next Sunday morning. lie was accompanied by the Rev. Chancellor Kline, .secretary to the bishop. Father Kline is in charge of the Catholic church of Nevada City and is well known in Nevada. He was stationed in this state - a number of years ago. For a long time he was In charge of the Catholic church at Car-so.ri, and at different limes has he-Id mass in the Catholic church in Rsno. The reverend gentlemen are the guests of Rev. Father Tubman. Bishop Grace feels 'greatly pleased at the great work accomplished by Father Tubman in Reno. He wag en-.'.UiualasfiC; in his praise of the grand church and especially oC tin new altar. "Too much praise cannot- be given Father Tubman for what he has accomplished since coming to Rem,' said Bishop Grace today. The people, too, are to be congratulated, for they have been liberal in their support of Father Tubman and through them this great work has been, performed." The ceremonies next Sunday' morning will mark a new era in the history of, the Catholic church next Sundry. Final arrangementes for the exorcises are now made. From all over Nevada and California visitors are expected. OSBORN CHILDREN FEATURE OF "PALS" "Pals" was the play at the Grand last night a.ud it was by far the mos-t interesting production the Klleford company has put on since that company has been showing in Reno. The . drama is full of exciting scenes and incidents and at-times the comedy is of the best. Taken altogether it is a play well worth . seeing and pleases all. Every member of the cast is good in his or hor part and each one came in for a good share of applause last night. The play is alive with beautiful little love scenes, intermingled with cenes of tragedy and comedy and for a person who likes emotional plays, "Pals" is sure to please. The two little Osborn children ap; peared last night in a Dutch song and dance sketch and the ywere to use the expression of a lady in the audience "just too cute and too dear tar anything." They surely can danc.j and when It comes to singing, for youngsters they are hard to beat. , "Pafs" will be the attraction tonight and will undoubtedly be greeted by large crowd. After a delay of more' than six months the Washoe Oil & Development company yesterday began drilling once more on the oil fields southwest of the city and on the bluffs overlooking the south bank of the Truckee river. Last year a well was driven to a depth of more than 1200 ftet and now the company intends to sink at least 1000 feet more. Two cars loaded with casings, wer; yesterday received by the company in this city and these casings are now being hauled to the scenes of operations. The engineer of the company declares that he believes oil will be encountered before the well is driven 1000 'feet deeper, but that unless a large flow is encountered the will will be driven that much deeper anyway. During the drilling of the well last year a small flow of oil was encoun tered but the work had to stop on account of. lack of material. Now all is in readiness once more and. all the. directors of the company feel confident that a large flow of oil will be en countered. It is believed that the ground purchased by the Washoe Oil and Development company southwest of this city will prove to be rich with oil and that within, a fev more months, there will be some wonderful discoveries made - in that district. If large oil wells are discovered it will mean that the growth of Reno will be much more rapid than ever before and that the city will be increased by many thousand inhabitants within the next few-years.

Joe Simpson in Search of Comes DC DC DCZZDOC DC Fortune In search of a fortune believed to have been left by her husband wh n he was lynched by an angry mob at Skiddoo, in southern Nevada last month, Mrs. Joe Simpson arrived in Reno yesterday morning. She is stopping with Mrs. Dan Free on Main street. Mrs. Simpson is well known in Reno. It was through the Gaaette that she first learned of the death of her husbarid and since that time has been engaged in an effort to have his business affairs settled up. It is probable she will be compelled to engage in a number of law suits before she can establish her rights to the Simpson estate. She. is now negotiating with attorneys to have this matter attended to. -HAD MONEY. "I have received a number of letters from officials in Skidoo since my husband's death," said Mrs. Simpson t a friend yesterday. "But all of them say that he left no property From other sources I learn that my husband did leave considerable prop erty and money. When he was seen in Los Angeles several months ago lie was well supplied wnn money and was then in Los Angeles to close up a large mining deal. At that time he said he was going to dispose of his interests at Skidds. He owned a saloon there which was fitted up expensively and I am led to believe he must have left considerable property when he met his death there last month." . ONCE LIVED HERE. Simpson was an old time resident of Reno. Ten years ago he came here and ope.ned up a lunch counter 'in the Monarch saloon and in a comparatively short timo made a Small fortune Then he began to take in the mining excitements and up to the time of his death made p,nd lost several fortunes. It was his desire '.for liquor that led to his downfall for when he was drinking he was in an ugly mood and it was during one of his sprees in Skiddoo that he killed a man uuJev such conditions that it aroused the citizens and they took him out and lynched him from a telegraph pole.

Wilson, furnished the music for the evening and the program was opened by a selectiorf by this or chestra. This was followed by a piano solo rendered by Miss Newton.
