ISrECXAX, TELIGKAU TO TILE DISPATCH. 1
New York, June 18. Fifteen thousand
voices united in one mighty roar proclaimed
August Belmont's Raceland the winner of the
Coney Island Jockey Club's fifth Suburban
Handicap run on their beautiful course at
Sheepshead Bay. Raceland was a strong far
orite at 8 to 5 against, with Terra Cotta second
choice at 3 to 1 and Badge third choice
at 6 to L The crush of Raceland and
Terra Cotta money was something ap
palling, but the bookies took eTery
dollar of it, firm in the belief that history
would repeat itself and that the favorite would
be knocked out. Of course the Suburban was
the great event of the day. It is a handicap
sweepstake of 100 each, half forfeit, the asso
ciation to add the amount necessary to make
the value of the race 10,000: the second to re
ceive $2,000 and the third 1,000 out of the
money so added. Winning penalties and handi
cap allowances, one mile and a quarter.

When the bell rung there was a wild rush for
desirable positions from which to view the
race. In a trice the inner field was lined for
half a mile with faces a dozen deep, while, on
the other hand, the throng closed in until it
formed one solid mass, upon whose shoulders
three furlongs could be walked in either direc
tion from the center of the stand. At the third
attempt away they sped, with Terra Cotta,
Badge, Elkwood and Gorgo on even terms, the
others, with the exception of Bella R, who
swerved to the extreme outside, well up. Down
through the lane of faces the nine chargers
flew, and passing the stand, where everybody
is clapping hands and shouting wildly. Volun
teer and Gorgo ran side by side a length and a
half before Euros, two lengths before Badge,
a nock in front of Terra Cotta and Elkwood.
ABOUND THE LOWER TUBIT
Volunteer made the pace very fast a length
before Gorgo, half a length in front of Bella B,
who had shot up on the outside, a neck in front
of Eurus, at whose saddle-skirts Badge was
running very easily, Raceland, Terra Cotta and
Elkwood bringing up the rear. Both Terra
Cotta and Elkwood were cut off badly on the
lower turn and McLaughlin had to take a pull
on Terra Cotta to keep him from going down.
At the quarter pole Gorgo was the leader half
a length before Volunteer, the same distance
in front of Bella B, with Eurus at her shoulder.
Badge half a length behind Bryan Born and
Baceland on even terms two lengths in front of
Terra Cotta and Elkwood. It looked blue for
the favorites, and especially Terra Cotta, who
was fully seven lengths behind the leader, and
.McLaughlin began to ride the chestnut horse
vigorously. Up the back stretch tho flylug
Gorgo tore two lengths before the others, of
which Raceland was the most prominent.
GABBISOK LOOMED TJP
Garrison. having come upon the outside with
the gelding at a pace that gladdened the hearts
of his backers. At the half-mile pole Gorgo
was leading Raceland by two and a half
lengths, the Belmont gelding a head before
Badge, a neck before Bella B., Terra Cotta a
length away under the whip, Elkwood nextand
Volunteer beaten off. As they flew around the
tipper turn Raceland reduced Gorgo's
lead to a length, Eurus the same dis
tance behind the favorite, and Badge a
neck away leading Terra Cotta by
two lengths, McLaughlin still using both
whip and spur, and the gams horse underneath
him responding to every cnt with the utmost
courage. When half way around the turn, and
while apparently going easy Bella B. suddenly
bolted across the track, and before Taylor
could straighten her out again she was out of the
hunt Gorgo maintained ber lead of a length
into the staight, Raceland half a length befo-e
Eurus, the same in front of Terra Cotta, who
was now coming very fast on the outside.
BACELAND TQ THE FRONT.
"Oorgowins! A 20 to lshotT' shoutssome
hasty persons as Senator Hearst's green and
yellow are borne in the van by the imported
filly, but Garrison speedily stilled those cries
as he shot to the front with Raceland the mo
ment he saw McLaughlin loom up with Terra
Cotta. At the furlong pole Raceland had his
long neck in front of Terra Cotta, who was on
even terms of it. Garrison moved a few ti mes
on the favorite anddrewaway. winning handily
by two lengths. The battle for second honors
between Terra Cotta and Gorgo was close and
bitterly contested, and the Western champion
only secured it by a short neck. Gorgo was
third, two lengths before Eurus. six in front of
Bryan Born, a neck before Badge, and Elkwood
last. Volunteer and Bella B walked in. Fol
lowing are the results:

How the Suburban Winner Is Bred and What
Be Has Won.
Raceland's victory in the Suburban yesterday
was no surpriso to the Pittsburg talent. They
seemed to be all "on" and the books have been
closed against the great horse for several days.
Local bookies have lost practically nothing,
but have won handsomely. One book was so
well protected against Raceland that $30 is all
that is to be paid out However, Raceland's
victory.is a public one. as he has been backed
heavily by pnblic money.
The winner's record is as follows : He is a
bay gelding, 4 years old, by Billet, dam Calo
mel. He wis purchased by Joe Ullman, a St.
Louis bookmaker, as a yearling. Ullman met
vi th hardly an opposing bid for $220. His
career.as a2-year-old was most brilliant. Start
ing 12 times, be was first nine times, second
once and unplaced twice. He met and de
feated all the best youngsters of his age in the
conntrv, and placed to the credit of his owner
about $18,500. Raceland made his debut in the
Harold stakes at Latonla, which he won, car
rying 107 pounds and ridden by Harry Blay
lock, in 1KHK- Badge, with 118 pounds, fin
ished third. Cast Steel separating them.
Then came the Manufacturers' stakes at
St. Louis, in which he earned 117 pounds to
the front in 1:17, and three days later lollowed
this up by winning the St. Lonls sweepstakes,
five furlongs, in li&4. His first defeat was
for the Lakeview handicap at Chicago, won by
Lucky Baldwin's great colt Emperor of Nor
folk, in 1:11. bnt Raceland bad his revenge a
few days later in beating the Emperor for the
Quickstep stakes, a half mile, in 4S seconds,
within pounds in the saddle. He was then
brought East, and paid his car fare by winning
a sweepstakes at Sheepshead Bay from a field
of )5 in 1:1 Tho next time he faced the
starter he finished unplaced to Sir Dixon for
the FUtbush stakes, won in 129. but a few
davs later he made them all see stars by carry
ing the top weight home first in the great East
ern handicap, six furlongs, over a fair track in
1:1 and la good ones finished in hi wake.
His old enemy, the Emperor of Norfolk,
loomed up again, and Raceland was compelled
to play second fiddle to him for the Algeria
stakes at Brooklyn, which the Emperor won in
At Washington, Raceland and Emperor of
Norfolk met in the Arlington stakes, and the
Calif ornlan was obliged to lower his colon to
the son of Billet, who, with 115 pounds, covered
the six furlongs in 1U.4K- Raceland's last ap
pearance for the year was in the Capital
stakes, where he carried 120 pounds home in
1:14. beating George Ovster. The time was the
best ever made on tho Ivy City track by either
young or old horse, and it was this no doubt
which caused the Hon. August Belmont to pay
?17,500 for him.

A Well- Known Sportsman Killed.
Indianapolis, Ind., June 18. A deplorable
accident this morning resulted in the death of
George Reyer, Secretary of the Western Sport
ing League, which begins its festival near this
city to-morrow. It was the habit of Mr. Reyer
to go shooting about one day every week. This
morning he started 09 such a trip. While north
of Crown hill he attempted to climb a fence,
with his cocked double-barreled shot gun in
hand. It seems that a board of the fence gave
way. The gun pressed close against the center
of bis breast and discharged, the entire charge
passing through his body. He fell back, in

Portland. Ore., June 18. Jack Dempsey,
the middle-weight pugilist, who is training
here to fight LeBlancne in San Francisco in
August, received a dispatch from James
Wakeley. of New York, one of Sullivan's
backers, to-day, asking him to second Sullivan
in his fleht with Kilraln near New Orleans.
Dempsey fears the Southern climate will not
agree with him, and if he accepts it will inter
fere with his training, so he bas about con
cluded not to go.

The Local Talent Returns and Are Ready
The local ball team returned home yesterday
from the Western trip. Manager Phillips and
the players were all looking well. ' The club
has won four games of the ten played while
away, and this is considered a good showing in
view of tho fact that Galvin and Staley have
been the only two pitchers at command.
During a conversation last evening Manager
Phillips said that the boys have been playing
excellent ball, and he added that if the full
strength of pitchers had been on the trip the
team would have at least won eight of the ten
games. He is confident of success, believing
that the disabled players will soon get into
The Bostons will be here to-day and play
their first Western game this season. The
sluggers from the city of culture are far in the
lead, and doubtless they will attract large
crowds if the weather is fine. It is likely that
their battery to-day will be Radbourne and
Bennett. The home battery will be Staley and
Carroll. Miller's injury is not sufficiently
recovered to permit of his playing. Sunday
will be in right field. The make up of the two
teams probably will be:

THE KAUFMANNS WON.
They Bent the Gnskys in a Terr Lively
There was plenty of fun at Recreation Park
yesterday afternoon both for old-time and
modern baseball cranks. The game for S100 a
side between the Kaufmann and Gusky nines
took place, and it is a mild way of stating when
it is said that it was a corker. Partisan feel
ing ran high, and although the game started at
3.30, the shades of evening had the park almost
darkened before the last man was out. There
was any amount of slugging, but thai was
nothing compared to the passed balls and field
ing errors. However, although the highest
quality of playing was not displayed the few
hundreds of spectators present enjoyed the fun
immensely. Kicking of a very demonstrative
kind was prolific.
The Kaufmanns won by a score of 23 to 22.
Their victory, however, was almost entirely
due to the mistakes of the Gusky catchers.
Crohen, who pitched for the Gnskys, did well.
In the second inning be struck out six men, but
nis catcner, iiraus, auowea tne tnira striKes to
get past him almost every time. There were
nine runs scored in the Inning, and only two
little bits made. Crohen, however, maintained
his courage and pitched well. Kraus went out
to center field, and Wnitling came behind the
bat and improved matters a little, but not
much. The fielding of the Guskys was
The Kaufmanns fielded tolerably well and
had three pitchers in the box. They started
out with Daly, who tired in the fifth inning,
and Blakely pitched the sixth -and seventh In
nings. He was "pie," and Douglas pitched the
eighth and ninth. He struck the side out in
the eighth and that really won the game for
the Kaufmanns. Messrs. Jones and Foster
were the umpires and gave general satisfac
tion. Following is the score:

which is purchasing American breweries,
said to-day that there was no trnth in the
rnmorthathe had made a proposition to
purchase all the breweries at Boxbury,
Mass. These breweries are Houghton's,
Boessler'8, Burkhardt's and PiafTs, and
their aggregate valuation is between $4,000,
000 and $7,000,000. Mr. Untermyer said:
"There is no truth in any such rumor,
and, moreover, you can say that the English
capitalists who" are investing in American
breweries do not want the Boxbury brew
eries. This syndicate which, by the way,
is not a syndicate, but merely a number of
English capitalists is going to invest in
flour mills and rolling mills. "We are
already negotiating for the purchase ot
different mills, and propose to manufacture
steel rails in this country. I am not at
liberty now, however, to state where these
manufactories and mills are."

Mrs. Frances L. Swift, the lady who has been
most prominently identified with the prohibi

"Well, if tbe result of the election is against
us, we shall not despair. Wo shall try again
and again, until we are victorious. We have
still the work of the W. O. T. U, before us, and
we shall carry it on to its ultimate object, the
obtaining of prohibition.
"The object of the W. C. T. U. work is main
ly educational, and now we must strive so to
educate the people as to render easy the ac
complishment of prohibition in the near
future. That's really all I have to say. Wo
mean to try again and again."
Jlr.JosephI. Weeks, the County Chairman of
the County Amendment Committee, spent a
busy day at tbe headquarters in tbeBissell
block, receiving reports and issuing directions.
He said (early in the day): "1 am
well satisfied at the way things
are looking, especially in Allegheny.
The liquor men are making some absurd
claims.- For Instance, in the Twenty-first w.-inl,
in this city, they claim a majority of GOO or 700,
while the total number of votes won't reach
1,000. On the Southside tbey claim a majority
greater than all the votes of last fall, when the
Republican and Democratic vote was 7,989.
At Allegheny headquarters, on North avenue,
a busy day was spent by Rev. Dr. James M.
Fulton and those associated with him. Mes
sengers were coming and going, reports arriv
ing, and dead earnestness to do their utmost for
the ennse tbey bad espoused, characterised

ceasing efforts of the ladies, on whom a great
deal of tho real hard work of the campaign
"At the Ninth precinct of the Third ward,"
Said Dr. Fulton, "the tickets which should be
on the table were securely bidden in the pock
ets of a Councilman, where, I suppose," contin
ued the Doctor, smiling, "they had
gotten by mistake. In these pre
cincts we have men watching for any
evldenco of intimidation, and if the
Mayor's men don't do their duty we intend to
impeach him before tbo Council. In two dis
tricts of the Third ward ana one of the Thir
teenth the men we had engaged were bought
off. and they came forward and frankly ad
mitted that they had secured more money.'
In contrast to the scene alluded to above, it
was a very quiet collection of people that as
sembled outside tbe Allegheny prohibition
headquarters last night to hear tbo results of
the election. Very few of them but had a
conviction as to how tbe day had gone
and while an adverse report was listened to in
silence, a majority at any of the precincts or
outside points was received with cheering of
such a half-hearted kind as suggested that hope
for a victory was far from being present Inside
a number of gentlemen and not a few ladles
were busy receiving and noting the reports,
which were announced outside as soon as
made. There did not seem to bo much disap
pointment at tbe result as only a few of the
very sanguine anticipated any other.
Among those present were the Rev. W. J.
Kobison, Dr. Homer, Captain L K. Barbour, of
the Oil Exchange, Rev. Mr. Harnett. Mr.

PENN AVENUE INTERESTED.
Scenes and Incidents Oat In the Lnwrencc
At almost every corner along Penn avenue
last night, and at every principal place In Law
renceville, little groups of men were congre
gated dlscu'Slng the issue of the election. The
remarks most frequently heard were. "I told
you so," and "What did I tell you,"
From the temperance crowds could be heard
such remarks as "Walt nntll the official re
turns are published, and the laugh may be on
At the Twelfth ward police station, private
returns were being received, but although they
were received a3 private, the people
most interested in the question of
the hour were constantly inquiring
as to the way the different counties
had voted. The engine , houses were also
other places where information was
furnished gratis. The Western Union
Telegraph office at the corner
of Forty-third and Butler streets were pasting
bulletins on their windows. About 300 people
stood about the corner reading the re
turns. Very often parties were seen
to leave when a bulletin announced
a liquor majority, saving partly to themselves
and partly for the benefit of the crowd. "It Is
on account of frauds and fair counts are not
being made, or else it would be otherwis ."
A woman, evidently the wife of a heavy
drinker, and who was certainly nnder tbe im
pression that the Constitutional amend
ment had been adopted, was heard to say,
"Thank God. Now Henry will come home
sober," but "Henry" at that moment came up
the street Intoxicated, and ordered his wife
and pretty little daughter to go in the house.
The pool and billiard halls along the avenue
were other places at which crowds congregated
to bear tho latest news of the election. At one
of these places in tbe Fifteenth ward the
reporter stopped and played a game of
billiards as a blind, and also "played drunk"
for the purpose of finding out if any "speak
easies" or "hush shops" were running in the
neighborhood. After the game was over he
asked the obliging proprietor if he could
direct him to any of these place'. He
was informed that if he would have
been earlier in the evening be could have
directed him to at least 15 places, but
as it was late the majority had
sold out But nevertheless three places
were named at which drinks were being dished
out. This was in the Fifteenth ward. The
Twelfth and Seventeenth wards were equally
as oau. as iniormation was secured in tne
above-named wards in the samo manner. Theso
places were undoubtedly where so many of the
intoxicated men got their liquor.
That's What Committeeman McConnell Snys
Pros Will Be.
Mr. J. A. McConnell. Allegheny member of
the Prohioition State Executive Committee,
came sadly along the sidewalk and halted in
iront of The Dispatch office. By his ex
pression he was groaning mentally, when
a reporter accosted him. "Yes, the fight
is up," Mr. Mac "Chairman Palmer has
iust telegraphed me conceding Philadelphia to
the Wets by 90,000. This setfles the policy of
animation with the other party. Cicsar said,
'All Gaul is dlided into three parts.' That's
tho way we'll do with Pennsylvania. The third
party Prohibitionists must roll up their sleeves
and start in againl

When I saw that all the Philadelphia
leaders bnt McManes were against

Locally the Republican leaders have quietly
put the knife in and turned it around. The
amendment was a Quay measure, and Mr.
Macee has found it expedient to place his star
in tbe ascendant by 'giving the opinion that
prohibition is against the interests of the Re

WOMEN AT THE POLLS.
They Become Discouraged la Some Places
Children and Songs.
The women workers at tbe polls la Pittsburg
yesterday-did as well as tbey could, but In many
instances they found that tbe task was so mnch
more disagreeable than they anticipated that
they withdrew from the unequal contest It
certainly was an unpleasant jobinmanyplaces.
The regular ward workers resented the pres
ence of the ladies, and, while they did not say
anything to them directly, there were plenty of
methods of making it unpleasant for the
The Fifth ward was one place which the
women gave up in despair very early In tbe day.
At the Hancock school three ladles appeared
about 9 o'clock in the morning, but after vain
ly seeking for some one who would agree to
vote against prohibition, they withdrew. They
offeree to give an order on Milk Shake Martin
for five eallons of bnttermilk If some Prohl-
tionist would tike charge of It, but no person
could be found.
Three ladles, however, kept at their posts at
the First precinct of the Third ward, the Mu
nicipal Hall polls. They were surrounded
nearly all the time by a strange crowd, who
treated the ladies respectfully enough, but
laugbed boisterously and sarcastically every
time they would tackle a well known anti
amendment voter. The ladies kept their
temper and continued their work.
In many of the down-town precincts either no
ladies could be found who would undertake the
work at the polls, or else the v concluded it was
a waste of time to try it This was true to a
large extent in the First Second, Fourth and
Ninth wards. In the Sixth ward the ladies
were very, active, although the votes polled
were heavily against their side.
During the afternoon several wagon loads of
children, all dressed in white, and wearing
white mop caps, were driven from poll to poll,
stopping in front of each and singing temper

It had been announced that returns would be
received in tbe fire alarm office, but the defeat
of the prohibition measure was so readily and
conclusively settled that the politicians and
habitues of the hall were not to be found after
One City Hall official, when asked how many
votes among the different officers and employes
were cast for the amendment, said: "I am
almost posiiive that every man in the building,
with the exception of two, voted against it, and
those two were only prompted to vote adversely
on account of reasons which were personal
not by the dictates of their own minds."
"How did the police of the city vote?" asked

SOFT DRINKS ONLY.
Legitimate Saloons Closed and Speak
Easies Were la Operation.
The "soft" drink was a great institution yes
terday. Saloon keepers who held licenses had
more sense than to sell, and the speak-easies
are not generally known, except to those who
have good noses for booze: but under the pres
ent law sweet cider is a soft drink, no matter
how it may be.
There are many places in the city where an
excellent quality of "sweet" cidercanbe found,
and tbey are not affected by the law requiring
saloons to be closed on election days.
Three drinks of this cider could be had for 15
cents, and they contained as much drink as two
glasses of whisky costing 30 cents.
Tbe proprietors of some of them wonld be
content to nave an election held every day.
SOME STRAY STRAWS.
Things Heard and Seea by tbe Balky Ballot
The other amendment proposed, that tear
ing down the suffrage bars, or voting made
easy, was obscured by the dust of the prohibi
tion contest, but the proposition to make vot
ing easy caused more apprehension in the
minds of many thoughtful people than did the
booze question. ,
To the women around the polls in Municipal
Hall, a few voters suggested that they had best
be at home attendtisjt to domestic affairs. Some
of the people even suggested that their homes
were In a dilapidated condition from neglect,
and theirhusbands and children were sufferers.
One lady retaliated by saying: "We have serv
ants, thank you."
ATtherCounty Commissioners' office tho re
markable increase in tbe demand for blanks on
which to register voters swearing to residence
was noted and commented on. The deduction
was that there must have been mnch more
moving than nsual. The greatest demand
came from the Eleventh ward, of .this city, and
the Fifth ward, of Allegheny City.
A pbecedent In regard to voting privileges
was established in the Third district of the
Fourth ward, Allegheny, yesterday. Ex
Policeman William Atkinson was. not allowed
to vote on the ground that he bad not naid his
taxes himself, but that he allowed apolitical
clnbtodoso. Atkinson made two attempts to
cast hisvote, but was refused both times. He
threatens a suit on tbe entire election board.

worth it, and that is
Blooker's Dutch Cocoa.
Here is the reason the other
cocoas are more or less adulterated
with arrow-root, starch, vanilla or
sugar, whereas Blooker's is abso
lutely pure and made of the ripest
and choicest cocoa beans only.
One pound of it will go further
than two of other brands. One
pound makes 150 cups. Take a
pound or half-pound tin away with
you to the country you will find
it delicious and invigorating.
