  The administration building, the racetrack enclosure and the grandstand at the state fair grounds yesterday assumed an air reminiscent of a political caucus, as state officials, legislators, and politicians forgathered in an informal all day reception.

  Today, Livestock Parade day, will be featured by the million dollar parade of livestock. The parade will pass down the race course in front of the grandstand at 4 o'clock.

  According to Secretary A. R. Corey of the fair board the parade this year will represent considerably more than $1,000,000 worth of prize purebred animals.

  The winning animals in all classes will be in their stalls and pens in the livestock barns all of today and tomorrow with the exception of the time occupied by the million dollar parade. This will afford an opportunity for the public to inspect the prize winners, as they will be adorned with the prize ribbons, enabling spectators to look over the best animals.

  Governor Kendall was the central figure of the day's activities at the exposition grounds. The

  Washington, D. C., Sept. 1. - (Associated Press) - Word was awaited by federal authorities today from Brigadier General Bandholtz in the disturbed West Virginia area to determine whether martial law should be declared and federal troops sent in to put down the "unlawful and insurrectionary proceedings."

  If by noon President Harding's proclamation calling on all persons engaging in the disturbances to return to their homes is not properly complied with a proclamation declaring martial law in Kanawha, Fayette, Boone, Logan and Mingo counties is expected to be issued and two regiments of 1,000 men each sent from Camp Sherman, O., and Camp Dix, N. J.

  Logan, W. Va., Sept 1 --(Associated Press)--At 2 o'clock this morning, firing continues at Crooked creek and additional deputies were being sent in that direction.

  Two hundred additional state troopers arrived here from Charleston at midnight.

  Last night's reports indicated quiet prevailed on Blair mountain late in the day, but that on Crooked creek firing which began at 10 oclock yesterday morning continued.

  Many families living along Mill creek were moving away from the boundary line and seeking shelter in the interior of Logan county, according to reports brought in from the hills last night.  Similar reports were received from other parts of the border.

  Another call for help was sent to neighbring counties last night, authorities stated, adding that McDowell had another force of 400 on the way.
  Word was received from Congressman Goodykontz at Washington late last night that he had advised the Washington government of the necessity of sending troops, Logan authorities announced.


Williamson, W. Va., Sept. 1 -
(United  News) - Telephone  [[page folded]]ports reaching the office of Sheriff Pinson here indicate that a bloody battle, unprecedented in American history, is being fought along the watershed of the Guyandotte and the Little Coal rivers. 

These reports are to the effect that virtually the entire army of invading miners, estimated to number almost 6,000, whose march into the striking coal fields was supposed to have been stopped by Brig. Gen. H. H. Bandholtz, is at grips with a force of sequel strength composed of state police, deputy sheriffs from several countries and thousands of citizens.


The mountain side for mines is ablaze with rifle fire. The conditions under which the engagement is being fought and the [[rip in paper]]character of the [[rip in paper]] received make it impossible to give any trustworthy sort [[rip in paper]] estimate of the casualties suffered, but they are believed to have been [[rip in paper]]with a likelihood that [[rip in paper]] more lives will be sacrificed. 

It is known that [[rip in paper]]of the ridge - all deputy sheriffs according to the report received - have been killed the fighting thus far.  The [[fold in paper]] only one of the victims, John Gore, was [[smudge on paper]]

Miners Suffer Losses.

 It is regarded as certain that the invading union miners have suffered severe losses. There has been heavy firing throughout the day, according to reports received by Sheriff Pinson, the first serious clash occurring this morning, when the [[fold in paper]] miners, advancing across [[fold in paper]] mountain, encountered an outpost officer and volunteer defenders. Several hundred shots were exchanged and the miners were compelled to retire.

Women Jurors Fall For Handsome Thieves

 Sacramento, Cal., Sept. 1 --
(United News)--After indicting James Llewellyn and James Gorman, young and handsome, for petty larceny over the theft of an automobile, women serving on the local grand jury left their seats and shook hands with the defendants.
 An indictment for grand larceny was asked for, but the six women jurors refused to agree to anything stronger than petty larceny.
 Judge Malcolm Glenn severely lectured the women for their action.

 This special edition of The Evening Tribune, bearing the accompanying autographed photo of Ruth Law and a picture of one of her most daring exploits, a race with Gaston Chevrolet, auto racer, is being sold for the benefit of the Milk and Ice fund of The Evening Tribune.
 By buying one of these papers you are not only gaining a souvenir of the state fair and Miss Law's flying circus, but contributing to a fund which badly needed in Des Moines to buy milk for the babies of the poor.
 Unemployment, divorce, unsettled industrial conditions, have thrown more children upon the mercies of the Associated Charities this summer than ever before.
 "Had it not been for the money collected by The Evening Tribune for milk and ice this summer, I do not like to think what might have been the summer's toll among the poor children of the city," declared H.S. Hollingsworth, secretary of the Associated Charities.
 Your money--paid for this paper--goes to keep these babies from starving during the coming months.
 Miss Law is donating her services entirely without charge, in order to put the fund "over the top." 
 She is doing her "bit"--for which we extend her our heartfelt thanks.
 To you folks who give, we also want to express our appreciation of your generosity, and the assurance that your money will be spent in a good cause.
