Louisville, May 9. Never in the his
tory of the classic Kentucky Derby has
this great race been ran under more favor
able anspices than the one that Spokane
won to-day, be making the fastest time
ever made in the history of this race. The
weather was more like summer than spring,
and, beinc so warm, everybody seemed anx
ious to escape the heat and dust of the city
and spend the alternoon in watching the
thoroughbreds contend for supremacy on
Churchill Downs. But the 15,000 people
who went to the downs did not escape the
dust and heat,, for the latter was almost as
unbearable and the former frightfully
stifling. The people were packed in the
grandstand like sardines in a box, and
there they sweltered, breathing dust and
shouting themselves hoarse over the wins of
their favorites. The field was filled with
all manner of vehicles, on top of which stood
thousands of men and boys of all colors and
nationalities, each one straining his neck to
catch a glimpse ot the racers. Of the
HOST OF ROTABLES TBESEOT
perhaps one of the most eagerly looked at
was the noted ex-train and bank robber Frank
James, who, in a light Bnit of clothes, carrying
an umbrella, strolled around through the bet
ting stands placing bets here and there on his
favorites. He was very lucky and quit tho
meeting several thousand winner.
The jam tn the betting ring was so great that
the light-fingered gentry were able to ply their
vocation to an extent that was trnly alarming.
R.E.J, Miles, the well known theatrical man
ager ot Cincinnati, was the first to suffer, he
losing a 1,500 diamond pin. The next to squeal
was S. Tburman. an old gent of Albany, Ind.,
who lost quite a sum of money and some valu
able papers. John Merrill, tho well known
horse plater, was the next to suffer by losing
J125. Then came a New Orleans gent whose
thousand rollmysteriouslv disappeared. Many
of the patrons of the turf feared that the as
sociation bookmakers would not go on here,
but last night Colonel M. Lewis Clark leased
the betting privileges to "Waddil & Burt and
Bourline & Co., of this city, for 521,000.
THE BETTDfO ALL EIGHT.
They have taken entire control of the bet
ting, and the Association therefore will do
business here during the balance of the meet
ing. Tho track was in bad condition, being
heavy with dust and slow, so that the time
made was exceptionally good. The first and
second races were productions ot some excite
ment, but not half so much as did the appear
ance of Proctor Knott as he came on the track
for his warming tip. He was greeted with
cheer after cheer, and his thousands of ad
mirers asked time and again, "How can tbey
beat him?" As he galloped along with his big
open gait, jumping like a rabbit, it did look as
if he was unbeatable, but old man Noah Arm
Strong had a chestnut colt that f ewpeoplc gave
a second thought to, who was destined to make
for himself not only winning brackets, bnt to
capture the rich stake in the fastest time it was
ever run in. and that, too, OT.era track at least'
When the jockeys had weighed in for the
Derby the betting ring became a perfect pan
demonlnm and men
CEAVLED OYER EACH OTHEB
in tbeir frantic efforts to get the first and
best odds laid against their choices. Proctor
Knott started 1 to 2, but the worshipers of Sam
Bryant's supposed to be invincible colt jumped
on the bookies so strong that they soon had
only 1 to i against him. This had the effect of
driving off many of the big colt's favorites,
and they began backing Milt Youne's entrv.
Bootmaker and Once Again for the place, but
the odds soon went down on them, and it was
only S to 1 acainst them straight when the post
bell rang. The hluegrass contingent plunged
on Hindoocraft, backing him strongly for
place, bnt the others had very light following.
When the post bell rang the first horse to
come past tho stand was Cassias, then Out
bound and Spokane following closely after.
The latter was looking flt to run for a man's
life, and right well did he-justify his appear
ance. Hindoocraft came next, followed by
Sportsman, and then came the popular Proctor
Knott. He was cheered to the echo, and, with
his goggles on, he made rather an nnique ap
pearance as he would shake his head in his
violent effort to get away from Barnes, who
was so light be bad to carry much lead. The
last to come before the judges was Milt Young's
pair, and as Once Again passed before the
stand, looking every inch a race horse, he was
KNOTT DIDN'T ACT TTEIX.
Knott failed to act well when going to the
post and had to be led to the starting point in
the chute. At the third attempt the Derby
competitors were sent away to a splendid start,
with Hindoocraft first, Spokane second and
Bootmaker third. Proctor Knott at once took
the lead and with little Barnes pulling his bead
nearly off, he set the pace redhot, reaching the
first quarter three lengths in front of Hindoo
craft in the fast time of 21& seconds. Passing
the stanu the first time the big chestnut had in
creased his lead to five lengths. with Sportsman
second, Hindoocraft third, Bookmaker fourth.
Outbound fifth, Spokane sixth, Cassias sev
enth. Once Again last Knott was still trying
to get his bead, but Barnes seemed to be get
ting him under control,and tbn fleld passed the
quarter pole In the same order. Hindoocraft
then began to come op, and at the half he was
eccosd, within three lengths of Proctor Knott,
who was still running easy, and Once Again in
fourth place, Spokane third.
SPOKAKE' SHOWS UP.
The latter here began to crawl up, and at the
three-quarters he was a good second, with
Once Again third. As the start bad been made
out of the chute Proctor Knott upon reaching
it evidently thought he ought to go back to the
starting point, and he turned up the chute,
thus giving Spokane the inside of the track.
Barnes succeeded, however, in pulling Knott
back into the track, but so much ground bad
been lost that be was only able In one of tbe
most desperate finishes ever seen in tbe West
to come in second, Spokane being first by a
head. Proctor Knott four lengths ahead of

the fastest time the Derby was ever run. Ben
AH, heretofore, had the record, 236K. -
.Everybody expecteu to see a horse race yet no
one believed it would be such a one as it turned
out to be. Not only from a racing standpoint,
but as Proctor Knott was the strongest 'favor
ite that ever started for the stake no one ex
pected to see him beaten. But it required
A. EECORD SMASHER
to do It. Spokane is a chestnut colt 15 hands
S inches high, a rather good-looking, youngster,
with faultless action, as he steals along without
comparatively any effort. He was bought
with his dam when a suckling by his present
owner, jioab Armstrong, of .Montana, from
General Rockwell, of Illinois. He isbyHider
AIL dam Interpose, which makes him a full
brother of Queen Bess and Graycloud.
His first race was run last year in the Hyde
Park stakes in Chicago, which he ran unplaced
to Caliente, Unlucky and Mamie Fonson." He
also ran unplaced in the Louisville. His
next start was at Latonia, where he won the
Maiden stakes, after being almost left at the
post, in a gallop, beating Sportsman, Sir
Edward, Lcnnes and Longslde. A short time
after that he was beaten at Latonia by Tenny,
he running unplaced. The last race In which
he started in lfc88 was a purse at Nashville in
the fall, which be won by beating Long Dance,
Jullen and four others. This was .his second
start this year, his first race having been run at
Memphis, where he finished second to Stride
away, with Hypocrite, Comedy, Clay Stockton,
Long Chance and JEndurer behind him. Spo
kane Is engaged in the American Derby at
Chicago and in tbe Clark stakes here' next
Tuesday. In this latter race he will again meet
Proctor Knott. Following are details of this

both for the noble company and the exciting
run. No bette bred horses ever started. Mil

ABOUT THE WINNER.
How Two Local Bookmakers Lost on Spok
nne Last Tear.
Now a little bit of local history of the flying
winner Spokane. A couple of our lively sports'
were in the East last season bookmaking, of
course,-and playing the races as a natural con
sequence. Well, these two gentlemen of cash and
leisure had formulated a pretty clever list to
win for them, no matter what horse passed tbe
wire first Just as they were about to close the
books and retire on a competency, a gaunt gen
tleman from the wild and woolly west wanted
to know the odds against Spokane, a 2-year-old
then, of course.
The bookmakers flashed over the leaves, and
partner No. 1 whispered "Spokane, out of
Hyder-Ali, by Interpose. Never beard of,
never will be. Hyder-All never succeeded in
getting anything bu left."
"Four to one," said the first partner, ana the
gentleman from the West pulled out a pocket
book that bore the traces of nothing but time.
"Five to one; seven to one," said partner No.,
2,'and tbe Western reserve went dead broke on
it and laid down a clean $500.
Well, to cut a long story short, Spokane, the
unknown, won hands, or rather feet down, and
the two sanguine gentlemen from Pittsburg
resolved themselves into a committee of two
and walked homo.

The Famous Jockey nnd Terra Cotta Get
NAshvecm, Tenh., May 8. The largest
crowd of the meeting since the first day at

was dusty, and tbe weather warm. Francis
continues to make a reputation as a winning
jockey in long shots, lauding Ancelus first in
the second race, the odds beine 10 to 1 against
the entry Angelus and J. T. The sensation of
the day was the jockeying of Terra Cotta by
McLaughlin; bat though ne was ruled ofl, the
general sentiment is that it was an error of
judgment on bis part rather than an attempt at

Laughlin rode like a demon down the stretch and
could have won on Terra Cotta easily, bat think
ing Leavy could win on Santalene he pulled Terra
Cotta almost double, but Leavy failed to come to

rSFECIAL TXLECBAX TO TH1 DISPATCH.:
Chicago, May 9. The game at the'Con
gress street grounds to-day was like a
meadow in tbe summer nnd the approach of
a cyclone. Captain Anson bad been mak
ing hay all afternoon and at 5 o'clock had
seven cocks stacked up. Then there Came
a clap of thunder as a warning of the ap
proach of a storm. The old man turned his
red face round the field and looked nervous.
Another clap of thunder came. Anson tried
to get some mare haycocks together, but the
storm swooped down upon him and he bad
to run for shelter. A yellow cloud rolled
over the field, the wind blew furiously and
above all the roaring came a crackling noise
that seemed to terrify all the harvest hands.
When .the storm was over Captain Anson
had just one haycock left, the rest had been
swallowed up in the gale. The old man crawled
out of his hole, wrung tho water out
of his shirt and then went to supper with a face
full of rigid lines.
A PBETTT GAME.
The game was almost as pretty as the battle
of the previous day. There was plenty of sharp
fielding and just enough batting to make the
result uncertain. Dnnlap and Pf eff er played a
remarkable game at second, and Carroll's
backstop work was frequently applauded. Pete
Conway started in to pitch for the visitors, but
his arm gave out in the fourth inning, and he
made way for Maul, who pitched the remainder
of the gamp in fine style.
Hyan was given his base on balls in the first
Inning, but was caught napping a moment later
by Conway's sharp throw to Beckley. After
Van Haltren had been retired, Duffy made a
single and stole second. He was left on Anson's
ground ball to Dunlap. Hanlon got in a two
bagger for bis side in the last half of the in
ning, but' failed to score. Pfeffer opened' tbe
second with a terrific drive over Hanlon's bead
for three cushions, and scored on Farrell's sac
rifice hit. For Pittsburg Carroll popped up a
fly to short left, which Gumbert dropped after
a bard run. Tbe runner reached second on the
error. Then long John Tener plngged Maul in
the leg with the ball. With nobody out it
looked as though tho lads lrom the East would
at least tie tne score.
A EAEE DOUBLE PLAY.
Emperor William Kuehno came to bat, Ee
washed the handle of his club with sand, and
then cracked the ball nnder the chin and sent
it up into the air. Pf effer made a pretty play.
Instead of catching the ball, tbe second bagger
scooped it and, hurling it like a shot to Ryan,
forced Maul out. Then Ryan sent the ball to
Burns and Carroll was caught This raredonble
play was loudly cheered. Kuehne got down to
second on a passed ball, and on Smith's sharp
bit to Ryan attempted to score. The ball passed
too swiftly around the diamond for tbe Em
peror, and he was caught at the plate.
Tener scored in the third inning. Gumbert
led off with a safe hit and made the rest of the
circuit by being forced to second on Van Hal
tren's base on balls and scoring on Duffy's hard
line drive to center. After Conway and Sun
day had been retired In Pittsburg's half of tbe
inning Ryan gave Hanlon three bases by a
wretched throw to Anson, the runner scoring a
moment later on a single by Beckley. The
fourth inning was a ,
SCKEAMING, H00TINO CUCKOO
so far as Chicago was concerned. After Pfeffer
had been retired Farrell, Burns and Tener hit
safely, this filling tbe bases. Gumbert grabbed
a fat club and walked up to tbe plate; His face
was red nnd sweaty. "Line her out I" yelled
Duffy, who stood on tho coacher's lines. Con
way passed tbe ball down the middle aisle.
Gumbert hit it; it was one of the most fiendish
bits ever seen in this city since 'little apples
were made. Tbe crack of the bat against tbe
ball sounded like a man hitting a tomato crate
with a crutch. The ball went over Maul's head,
hit the horse gate, bounded over the bicycle
track and went into a rat bole at the farther
end of tbe grounds. Before Hanlon or
Manl conld get tbe ball' all fonr
runners had crossed tbe plate amid tremendous
cheering. Van Haltren hit safely in this in
ning, but was left. Tbe visitors went out in
order in their half of the inning. Maul now
went into the box for Pittsburg. The change
was noticeable from the unip, theCbicagos
being unable to get a man as far as second in
tbe fifth and sixth innings. Tener was also
pitching a splendid game and kept the visitors
irom getting past nrst in tne two innings.
Ryan scored in the seventh on his base on balls,
a steal to second and hits by Vau Haltren and
"Start her up, Pop," yelled Beckley, as the
big mnstacbed shortstop came to bat in Pitts
burg's half of the inning. Tbe batsman pounded
a rattling single to left. Conway struck out.
Then Sunday lifted tbe ball over Van Haltren' s
bead, and by a tremendous burst of speed made
tbe circuit of the bases before be could be
tonchedont. Hanlon and Beckley retired tbe
side. After the doors had been closed on tbe
Chicagos in the eighth, Dunlap scored on his
baso on balls and singles by Maul and Kuehne.
The score now stood 7 to 4 in favor of Chicago.
A lightning double play DyDunIap,Beckley and
Smith in tbe ninth, spoiled what chance tbe
home team bad for bettering tbeir score. The
storm came in the ninth inning, when the Fitts
burgers made a desperate effort to overhanl
their opponents. Sunday led off with a terrific
drive for a base to the center field. Hanlon's
fly was caught by Gumbert. Then the long,
pivot-jointed Beckley banged tbe ball overtbe
fence. Sunday scored, and Beckley might
have done the same, but he preferred to take
three bases on his hit, and thereby keep Farrell
close to the plate. Dnnlap's sharp hit to Burns
let Beckley home. Then Carroll closed the
game with a ground ball to Burns. Gumbert
and Farrell and Morris and Carroll will be the
batteries to-morrow. Score:

Intention of selling out He said be preferred
to sell tbe club as a wfiole, as he desired Louis

Phil Hinkle and his side partner, Joe East,

identified with the sport through all the suc

CiNCiNNATi,'May 9. President Wheeler C.
Wikoff witnessed the Robinson episode and
said toKlay: '"If the umpire would only call
down one or two of them there would be fewer
attempts at dirty ball playing. Now that action
of Robinson's was childish, and If I was an um
pire I would punish him for the exhibition.
Baldwin might have tossed themask out of the
way instead of using a bat but Robinson was
at fault in placing tbat obstruction in the path.
It might have resulted in Holliday's serious In

SEVERAL BITTER THINGS BAID
By Some of the City Eeforment and Op
ponents on the
CEOSSTWH EAILWAI 0BDH.'AHC
Allegheny Councils held a regular ses
sion last evening, and in both branches tbe
proceedings were very lively. It was in
tended to hold a joint session to let con
tracts for city printing, but Select Counc.ll
got tired waiting on Common and ad
journed. The first business in the Common Branch
was tbe swearing in of Mr. C. C Haz, who
was elected, to fill theTacancy caused by
tho death of Peter Walter, Jr. A lot of minor
matters wero presented upon the call of wards
and were referred to committees.
A statement was received from the Citizens'
Committee on tbe natural gas question, stating
that they had collected $225 with which to carry
on the legal proceedings against the gas com
pany. They bad expended 1425, and now ask
for the deficit of $200 to be paid Dy tne city, in
accordance with the resolution passed by tho
Committee of Councils to tbe effect that the
city would pay the expenses over what the.Cit
izens' Committee could raise. The statement
was referred to the Finance Committee.
A FIGHT BEGINS.
Mr. Hax presented a resolution instructing
the, Mayor to stop the Pleasant Valley and the
Park Passenger Railway company rrom putting
up poles and stringing wires until they had re
ceived the proper authority.
President Hunter' remarked that the poles
were already up.
Mr. Hax said that they could be stopped from
stringing the wiresl
A vote was taken on the resolution, and it
was passed by a vote of S3 ayes to 9 noes. Short
ly afterward the resolution' was returned from
Select Council with their refusal to concur.
President Hunter announced this, and, no re
marks being made, he stated that no further
action would be taken on it.
Tho ordinance granting the right ot way to
theCrosstown branch of the Observatory Hill
Passenger Railway was taken up. Tbe route
of tbe railway is from the Northside brldee on
Sandusky street, along Sandusky and Ohio
streets, over the tracks of the Federal Street
and Pleasant Valley and Park Passenger Rail
way line to- Federal street, to Montgomery
avenue, to Arch street, toGeyer alley, to Web
ster street, to Taylor avenue, to Irwin avenue,
to Washington avenue, to Sedgwick street.Uo
California avenue, to Superior avenue.
On the reading of tbe ordinance Mr. Haz
moved to refer it back to tbe committee.
President Hunter asked for what reason.
Mr. Hax replied that he could not vote for if'
in its present shape. It gave the company too
many.privlleges, such as building either a horse
Dower, cable or electric road. Ee also ob
jected to the route.
AX EXPLANATION MADE.
President Hunter, who was on the floor, Mr.
Sahllnger having taken the chair temporarily,
suggested tbat as Mr. Scaife, the president of
the company was present, he be heard.
Mr.Rynd objected to Mr. Scaife being heard.
President Hunter then made a motion that
Mr. Scaife be allowed to speak. The motion
was put and several noes were heard. Mr. Hax,
however, said that be bad a motion before tbe
bouse, bnt tbat he bad no objections to bearing'
Mr. Scaife. The permission was given and Mr.
Scaife stepped forward and asked what the ob
jetlons to the ordinance were:
Mr. Hax repeated his remarks as to the lati
tude given in the ordinance and also as to tbe
Mr. Scaife said tbat the company only asked
for what had been granted in other cities. The
reason for specifying different kinds of power
was that tbe road might be partially operated
with horses at first, but tbe intention was to
make it an electric road. As to the route there
was a large district wherein tbe people have no
railway accommodations, and it was desired to
' Mr. Rynd asked If this company was not the
Pleasant Valley road, properly speaking?
Mr. Scaife-No, sir.
Mr. Rynd Why does the road want Mont
gomery avenue and Arch street?
Mr. Scaife To prevent blocking np Federal
street with too many cars.
.SHUT OTJX COMPEnTOBS.
Mr. Knox asked how often It' was' Intended!
to run cars on tbe line?
Mr. Scaife replied that as a matter of busi
ness they would run as often as the number of
Mr. Knox said that tbat would be all right as
a matter of business, but it wouldn't make
any difference if they only wanted to shut out
a competing line.
Mr. Scaife tendered a bond in the sum of
$25,000 providing for tbe commencement of tbe
road within three months after tbe passage of
the ordinance, no time having been provided
for in the ordinance.
A speech was made in favor of the ordinance
by President Hunter, who held tbat the road
was necessary for residents in the Second and
Tenth wards. He said be had seen Pittsbarg
offlcials and endeavored to get the.road an en
trance into Pittsburg. He could not do so, and
has learned that the company's only chance of
getting into Pittsbnrg is over the tracks of the
Pleasant Valley Company by means of a traffic
He said, however, that therp was no need to
hurry the ordinance. A vote was taken and tbe.
ordinance was referred back to tbe committee.
TWO MOBE TILTS.
Mr. Parke,thought It unnecessary to send a
whole committee on a trip when they knew all
tbat was necessary now. ,
Mr. Drum offered a substitute resolution to
the effect that the Controller be instructed to
refuse to issue a warrant for any expense in
curred by tbe Street Committee on the trip.
President Hunter maintained tbat this reso
lution was made for the purpose of blocking
Mr. Brum interrupted and said that it was
not. For a minute both gentlemen talked at
the same time, until called to order by Mr.
Dahllnger, Who was in tbe chair.
A lengthy speech was then made by President
Hunter. The action of Select Council was then
concurred in by a vote of 32 ayes to 17 noes.
Tho meeting ended with another tilt between
President Hunter and Mr. Drum, the I.Uter
objecting to approving bills in a bunch. Mr.
Drum said that it was well known tbat "the
most business was transposed in tbe comnit
tees, but when some members were ostracized
from the committees they would have their say
in Councils. The discussion was cut off by a
motion to approve tbo bills In a lump, which
was passed, and tbe meeting ended.
.In Select Councils Mr. Snaman presented a'
resolution directing tbe Committee on Gas to
advertise for proposals for an electric light
plant; the plant to be erected and operated lor

Effects of Dr- Smith's '
nre n t r
AT 502 PENN AVENUE.
The Rev.ThomasT. Evans, late pastor-elect of
the First Baptist Church at BinksTille, Fa., has
been a, confirmed Invalid since 1881. Forths
past eight years he has been afflicted with
rheumatism more or less" of the time,and f or '
the past three years his sufferings have been so)
terrible tbat life had become a bnrden to him, -He
complained of tearing, aching pains, all
through his body. His stomach became the
seat of horrible neuralgic pains, which ex;'
tended through to his back and radiated frois '
thero to his shoulder blades. The pain cami
on in paroxysms, which increased In violence pi,
until his body was bent donble. The pain was"?',
nsualjy aggravated alter eatinc, and would;-,
continue unabated until every particle of food ;
passed out of his stomach. As soon as the' '
stomach' became empty he complained of i
faint, all-gone feeling in it. His bowels
wer obstinately constipated, and were-"
only moved by taking cathartics. He suffered,
from an aching, tearing pain In the small of
tbo back, palpitation of the heart and sharp.,
stitching pain In his side. Mr. Evans had suf '
feredso long without finding relict that be'
had eiven up all hopes of recovery, and when
wo consider his terrible condition we do not
wonder tbat he had little if any Caith that Dr.
Smith would benefit his condition. Remem--ber
that he bad suffered eight years with rheu
matism, which was associated with dyspepsia,
constipation and neuralgia of tbe stomach in
an aggravated form. Spasms of pain in his"
stomach and bowels would seize him and bend
his body double. These horrible pains would
continue without intermission until his body
was bathed in profuse perspiration and until he
would faint from exhaustion. In this pitiable
condition he applied to Dr, Smith, the mag
netic physician, at No. 02 Penn ave. After
three magnetic treatments in connection with
a little medicine, Mr. Evans could eat without
distress, sleep well, and go about .from day to
day with never a sense of weariness or dis
tress. Rev. Mr. Evans stated in Dr. Smith's
office last Saturday that when be applied to
Dr. Smith that language was Inadequate to ex
press tbe horrible torture he was undergoing.
He says that Dr. Smith's treatment srave him
the first relief from suffering that be has had
during bis entire illness. Mr. Evans maybe
referred to at his present residence. No. 23
Eighth street, Beltzhoover, Fa., and will cheer-
fully vouch for tbe truthfulness ot this state--ment.
