Gov. Cox issued a statement today in

"The point in the Newberry matter was

BKLV1LLI., Tc.x., Sept. 22. Assurances
that the ninth annual Bee County Fair,
which opens here Tuesday, September lis,
is destined to be the most successful fair
yet held in this county and oue of th>'
most successful in .Southwest Texas, are
being inautiesled as the opening day ap-
proaches. Wor d comes from neighboring
counties that Targe liuiuoers ot out-of-
town visitors exptet to ho here for each
day of the fair, whjeh covers a period of
four days this year. It is thought in-
< ifasiugiy large crowds will take advan-
tage ot the l'a fare round trip rates within
a radius ot 75 miles offered by the two
railroads passing through here.
Oue of the most effective drawing cards
lhis year, it is thought, is the permanent,
up-to-date, enterprising fair site into which
tne fair grounds have recently been con-
verted. 'the accomplishment of this is the
fulfillment of a dream ot numbers of pro
gressivc business men of the county, who
ua\e given untiring efforts to afford such
to lake the plaec of a makeshift street ex-
hibition previously adhered to.
Opening with a dedicatory address in
commemoration of the new fair grounds, a
full program will follow for the lour days
of exhibition. Carlos Bee, member of Con-
gress from this district, will make the
Already exhibits have been entered which
will make remarkable displays, according
to \V. lc. Marsh, secretary of the lair asso-
ciation. The woman's building, the agri-
cultural hall, the poultry building and
the hog and live stock pens are all in
readiness for exhibits, which will ail be
in place by <1 o'clock Monday afternoon,
September -7. Tuesday, the opening day,
will see everything ready for the inspec-
tion of the large numbers of visitors.
It is said the exhibitions will be consid-
erably augmented this year by contribu-
tions from outside counties. Several years
ago U was agreed that premiums should
be open to exhibitors from all counties.
The premium list is long and comprehen-
sive. Fully $7,500 will be expended by
the fair association on premiums and
Free entertainments will include a fife-
works exhibition which was procured at a
<ost of $1,000, and a humorous feature,
"Happy Hooligan and 0 loo my (ins and
Their Foolish Auto.'' it is said that there
will be other free entertainment afforded.
The rat e program is said to be unusu
ally promising, since already a number of
fast horses and their Jockeys are here for
training. Prcnco busting and goat roping
contests also will be held. Large purges
are being off, red tach day for winners in
reported outrage, in each case his report
ha« been that he was unable to tind any
evidence of it.
There is no record of a punishment or
even a conviction of a member of the
police force for an act of lawlessness in
Ireland. There will be no civilian investi-
gation, as the holding of the coroner's In-
quests has been forbidden by the castle
"The police reprisals in Balbriggan,"
said the Guardian in part, "were the worst
yet iri Ireland in brutality, wantonness
and dest ructiveness by the uniformed
forces of the crown. The story is com-
parable only with the story of the Belgiau
\ lliage Lou vain.
"Two men were dragged from their
homes by the police, bayoneted and clubbed
iu an effort to extract Information, and
then killed in cold blood in the street.
If the lOugllsh people really are to stand
the things done in Ireland in the name
of the British government and allowed to
go on unchecked by the Cabinet, we must
go into the history of last night's hap-
penings in detail."
The Guardian followed with a two-col-
umn story of the imident. Inspector Burk-
ami his brother, a Mcfg -ant. were in civilian
clothes, celebrating to promotion of the
The celebration lasted for five hours and
look place in a saloon. Th;» shooting oc-
curred in the doorway ol' the saloon.
Whether it was from ambush or in a fight
is not clear.
When the police at Burke's station, close
by, heard of the incident, they rushed over,
of* strong, in motor trucks, and started tne
affray by th. killing of two men men-
tioned by the (tiiardlan, and then w^nt
about, with torch and bomb, returning last
night to complete the work. They were
sustained iu their reprisals by looted |
liquor. Many were drink maddened as
they went about the work of destruction.
