Some men on the Citizens ticket are depending upon voters of other parties to vote for them at the primary tomorrow..-The law is as plain as day on this point and anyone voting a primary ticket ether than that cf the party 3 ticket ha expects to vote at the JVrril election U liablj to prcsccutfca, r.n HIS FAMILY AND STUDENT BODY GUARD OFF FOR WASHINGTON. HIS RAZOR STROP BAROMETER Says It Shows Fair Weather Unmistakably Washington Has Bands Playing Soldiers Marchfrrg. Princeton, N. J.. March 3. President-elect Woodrow Wilson left Princeton today for Washington to become President of the United States tomorrow. Mrs. Wilson, their three daughters, the Misses Margaret, Jessie and, tleanor, and an escort -of 560 Princeton students accompanied him The longest special that ever rolled out of Princeton carried Wilson and his family and escort. The president elect stood on the platform of the last of the fourteen cars, with his silk hat in his hand. He looked down oa the nrass of fluttering handkerchiefs and banners. The smile on his lips vanished as the train, gained headway and his lips were moving. The crowd at his feet heard him join in singing the college anthem: ' "Persons shall give, while they shall live, Three cheers for old Nassau." As the train disappeared Princeton saw him' standing uncovered, his silk hat waving rythmetically to the chorus of song. President-elect Wilson forecasts pleasant weather for his cwn inauguration. The canvas back cf hir razor strep, which he calls an infallible barometer, "wad quite limp today, and it usually is stiff," he said, when rain or inclement weatfrer is in sight." Washington, March S.President-elect Wilson arrived aj 3:46 p.m. He was met at the train by Thomas Nelson Page, who escorted him through a lane of Princeton students to the President's room. Colonel Cosby was waiting at the station with the big "White House- au tomobile, as a personal represetnative of the President, prepared to take Mr. and Mrs. Wilson to a hotel. Washington, March .1. -The bumfs are playing, soldiers are marching from incoming trains, and thousands of visitors :n holiday array are parau ing the streets under a brilliant sun and a cloudless sky, awaiting the arrival of Wilson. So heavy was the traffic on the railroads that many of the trains were late, deljying the arrival of thousands, of visitors and participants in the inaugural parade. The arrival of the new president and his family was the magnetic event of the day. The Wilson party was scheduled to reach the Union station at 3:4r,. The Princeton students are ready to lorra a Lne from the train shed" to the president's room in the station. "Fair Tuesday morning, probably succeeded by unsettled weather Tuesday afternoon or night: winds becoming variable." That was the official weather bureau forecast for inauguration day. Apparently having in mind the flare-back of last inauguration day, when the prediction was for fair weather, which was overturned by snow- and sleet, the weather forecasters were none too positive in their predictions. At the Union station, beginning early, the crush of arriving thousands was swelled by the curious, and taxed the efforts of hundreds cf police . Washington. March :. This was woman's day cf crowning glory. Several thousand of them turned out in a great procession in Pennsylvania avenue, to demonstrate the unanimity of their sex in its demand for the ballot. Men and women alike joined in the demonstration and human walls lined the route cf march and formed a sea of tossing handkerchiefs and waving flags. Mrs. Ricliard Coke Buleson. grand marshal of the day. was busy from an early hour .preparing for the start. She was assisted by five aides, all excellent horsewomen, who rode astride and dashed here and there, giving hurried commands. Miss Inez Milholland, as herald, whose trumpet7 blast signaled the start, was dressed in ropay purple, and astride a mettlesome charger. At the foot of Capitol hill a number of, elderly women aopeared to march forth "cause." White the day was perfect the air was chilly. . The National Woman Suffrage asso- HONESTLY (Copyright.) ciation was given the place of honor in the line . Dehind them weer massed forty "ushers" and a prancing squad ron of "Petticoat Cavalry," under command of Mrs. Genevieve Wimsatt. Then seven sections .into 'which the suffrage managers had divided the procession, formed a kaleidoscopic picture of ever-shifting color. Prim dressed professional nurses were the background for the "gingham gowns and poke bonnets"' of the farming women, and the purposely ink-stained dresses of the literary woman. When the parade started dances and tableaux en the treasury steps began, reaching their climax. Mme. Iledwig Reicher, as Columbia, held the. center of the improvised stage, summoning to her side Justice. Charity, Liberty, Plenty, Peace and Hope. The prettiest ot the younger suffragettes had been cast for the parts. A specially selected band was chosen to furnish the music for the dances that accompanied the tab leaux. - Long before the procession got un der wav. eighty Puritan gins started a record business in food supplies for the famished marchers. The district Federation of Womens' club provided vans, from which they served hot coffee and sandwishes. Accident to Militia Train. Philadelphia, March 3. A locomo tive drawing the special train carry ing the Massachusetts oiunieer mui- tia to Washington for the inauguration blew up east of Rahway, N. J., on the Pennsylvania railroad. The en gineer and fireman were badly hurt, hut no nasseneers were injured. The tracks are blocked, interfering with inauguration traffic. At. the election tomorrow, call for a Citizens ticket and vote for Judge Shipp for Police Judge. OLD DIAZ' METHODS. Huerta Says He'll Quit Being Merciful to Rebels If They Don't Come in Right Away. Mexico City, March 3. A firm, energetic military rule is promised by the government under Huerta, and will probably be inaugurated this week. The government is now disposed to consider as irreconciliable all the rebels who continue to delay definite recognition. - The program of pacification will, it is expected, be put to severe tests Today and tomorrow .will be devoted to conferences between northern rebel representatives: and the minis ters of the war and interior. DEATH OF WILLIS FARMER. Aged Resident of the Devon Neighborhood Died Last Night After a Long Illness. Word was received here today that Willis - Farmer, aged 75 years, who made his home with his nephew, Lee Farmer, of the country five miles northwest of Devon, had died yesterday afternoon about 5 o'clock, of an illness with which he had been confined to his bed for some time. It is understood that he is survived by no immediate relatives, save his nephew, with whom he had made his home for a long time. The funeral was held t 2:St o'clock this afternoon from the . Dayton church, and interment occurred in the Dayton cemetery. Mr. Farmer was a veteran of the civil war.'- v- , . . ' ' Mrs. Lillie Hall of 1113 South Main street received a message last night from Elsmore, Kas.. that her sister-in-law. Mrs. J. M. Samuels, died yesterday from heart failure. unci TROOPS nniiT RiririniiiA , m mm Two Troops U. S. Cavalry Exchanged 2,000 Shots with Mexican Regulars Four Mexicans Killed. Douglas, Ariz., Mar. X. Neither the American troopers '.nor Mexicans crossed the boundary line in the battle yesterday five miles from here, where the trooxs of the Ninth United States Cavalry fought a IjO-minute battle with the Mexican regulars. Over 2.CMJI shots were fired by the Americans and it is estimated that fully as many were fired by the Mexicans. None of the Americans were hit, but the statement that four Mex leans were killed and several wounded is verified. General Oje- da, the Mexican "commander, de clared the Americans fired first. This is denied by the United States officers. RETURNED TO WORK. Shop Men Laid Off a Few Days Ago Are Again Employed No Further Additions. The fifty or sixty employees of the Missouri Pacific thops, who were laid off a few days ago, have all been returned to work, as the result cf retrenchment was only until March 1st. The- majority of the men were in the car department, all employed there having been cut off for a few days, but some were taken from each of the de partments. It had been reported that there would be a general resumption of work at the shops on March 1st, but no or ders to that effect have as yet been received here. It is now thought that it will come within a short time, and that a much larger force of men will be employed. BAYLESS FOR CITY ATTORNEY ON CITIZENS TICKET. To the Voters and Citizens of Fort Scott : - I desire to gay a Iset word to you in regard to my candidacy for the office of city attorney of Fort Scott, Kansas. I have tried to win the nomination for this office by a straight and honorable campaign and hard work. Two years ago I was deprived of this office on a technicality, although many felt at that time that I had a strong claim on the ofSce. I was born and have lived all my life in Bourbon "county, Kansas, and was graduated from our own State university. I will deeply appreciate your support and vote. If elected I feet that I can make .you a good city attorney. Respectfully yours, F. W. BAYLESS, Lawyer. THE .WEATHEB Chicago, March . Z. For . Kansas: Generally- feir tonight and Tuesday. Much colder tonight. STARTING CAMPAIGNING. Will Increase Membership of the Y. M. C. A. to 600 Will Then Make It Sustaining. The March membership campaign of the Y. M. C. A. starts today, and it will continue all through the month until at least the membership ha3 teen increased from 560 to 600. In order to have the association absolutely sustaining, a membership of COO must be obtained. The local Y has never reached a mark this high and as a result has never stood upon its own feet without a little assistance from interested parties. Secretary Henning has gradually increased the number of members, one by one, unti now he has reached the high mark of 560. This is the greatest the local Y has ever had, but the membership committee wants to make this even higher and place the Y. M. C. A. where it will be self-supporting. The campaign which is being start ed will be conducted on a quiet scale. but will lose none of its "pep." Men and boys who should be members and who are not at the present time will be persuaded to join. There are hun dreds of boys who would be delighted to be members of the association, but their financial conditions are such that they cannot. Then, on the other side, there are men who can afford to join and who are afraid they will never have time to take advantage of the membership. These men will be the ones who will meet the member- shio committee the most direct, for while they may, not enjoy the Y.M.C.A. thej- can buy a ticket and give it to some youngster who would. There will be no distribution of free congressional seed this year by the democratic leaders, as has been done in other years, as an appropriation of a quarter of a million dollars to perpetuate this moss-grown habit, has been eliminated by the senate from the agricultural appropriation. Each vear past several mail sacks filled with packages of free seeds were cent to each county seat, for distribution. A fight has been waged on the habit for years past, but never until this year could the appropriation be killed. This Is Your Make The It's worth to you what you make it.
