CIRCUS DAY IN THE
CITY BRINGS JOY
John Robinson's Big Show Ex
hibiting in Wilmington
Giant Crowd Witnessing The
Parade Viewed by Muk
titude as It Passed
Today is circus day in Wilmington
and it's some day, as is evidenced by
the thousands of eager people that
have been seen on the streets since
eafly this morning.
The famous John Robinson circus
is exhibiting in Wilmington today
and wherever John Robinson goes
there goes a record-breaking crowd.
The circus train, in two sections,
arrived in Wilmington early yester
day morning, and at once began Un
loading their paraphernalia and took
up the work of transporting it to the ing
I circus grounds. r ,
Long before the first tram arrived
in the city a goodly number of small
boys were found in the vicinity of
the railroad awaiting the arrival, and
they were right on deck when the un
loading ' of the cars began, and if
there was one among them who did
not get strict orders to be on the
grounds to carry water to the ele
phants it was. his fault, for each one
of the youngsters wras given explicit
instructions to be there.
The moving of the circus parapher
nalia to the grounds was accomplish
ed in record-breaking time and the
big tents were soon erected and all
in readiness for the opening perform
One of the main features of the
day was the big parade which left
the grounds shortly after 10 o'clock i
and which traversed the principal
streets of the city. This was viewed
by thousands and was pronounced by
them to be one of the most spectac
ular in the history of the city and
was up to the usual John Robinson
standard of excellence.
This afternoon the main perform
ance will begin promptly at 2 o'clock
and from that hour on until late in
the afternoon there will be a feast
of joy for the thousands of local citi
zens who, will- attend, and all will
doubtless feel well satisfied.
Tonight at 8 o'clock the evening
performance will begin, and at this
everything shown during the after
noon will be seen, and it will be, in
fact, an exact duplicate of the after
Reserved seats for tonight's per
formance can be obtained at Elving

Republicans Say That Many,
Voters Will Not Visit

Republicans were likewise- confident!
that a back drift had set in and that
since The Herald had at least an even
chance to make it Hughes it would!
"I must be shown," said one of the
Raleiga. Nov. 6. Local Republi
cans received with marked "blue
ness" yesterday the New York Her
alds' election figures.
They, with nearly all the Demo
crats, expected The Herald to proph
esy Hughes. The Democrats knew
that The Herald desired the defeat
of Wilson and" hoped for no such fig
ures as the papers brought them. The
leaders today, "but whatever the con
ditions it will hurt us badly. The
fence is full of men who have not
known just what tb.ey want in the
presidential candidate. They believe
that Wilson has preserved peace and
thpv hiieve also that the aftermath i
to the war will make Republican j
policies necessary. There they hang.
They wil lin many instances turn to
"This, of course, will hurt us lo
cally. It will cause many who might
have voted for Hughes to stay away
and it will hurt our country ticket.
While I do not think the newspaper
straw vote is final it is a strong indi
cation. I do not believe that Illi
nois and Ohio will go Democratic. It
is out of the question. But the
straw vote is just as Kiir to Hughes
as it is to Wilson.
"Had it not been for this forecast
I think we would have reduced the
majority in Wake to 400 or 500. The
Democrats will be lucky to get 1,000
and if everything goes well locally
we'll bring it under that. -The trou-
; ble is that a lot of the fightinjr heart
I has been taken out of the folks by
the announcement of such a paper as
j Democrats accepted it with joy.
The regular organs nave ueen worn
to claim more extravagantly than
they have been doing this year. The
nartv leaders have not asserted such I
faith as the old leaders did back in I
when Arkansas Jones claimed .

There has been nothing about the
campaign this year that suggested

I the Democrats claimed a landslide

not tell anything about what the

Hildebran's reports differed as wide

Amsterdam, Netherlands, Nov. 6.
Dutch shipbuilders and the entire
metal industry have been much dis
quieted by the recent restriction of
German exports of iron and steel to !
this country. Shinbuilders are al
ready experiencing a shortage in pro- J
hie steel and other essential raw ma
terials, and unless an improvement
soon comes they may, despite their
overloaded order books', have to dis
charge apart of their workmen.
Apart from the big demands made
on German industry by the manufac
ture of munitjonR of war- tha lowt :
measure is ascribed in well-informed t
quarters here to a desire to hamper
shipbuilding in Holland now that a I
part of the Dutch cargo space has
been acquired By the Allies. In view j
of the difficulties described, and the I
anticipated scarcity of iron .and steel
materials, the Industrial Commission J
has approached the Minister of Indus
try and- Commerce with a view, to
the erection of a State distribution
bureau in this country, and hope is
cherished that the threatened dan
gers will be warded off.
