Will Support Emperor William if He
Gets Into Any Trouble.
The Czarewitch Received With an Unusual
Amount of Honor.
The Eesult of the French Elections Awaited With
Great Aniietv.
The cordiality with which Emperor "W'ill
. iam is everywhere received is a sure indi
cation that he is backed by a united coun
try. Count Herbert Bismarck has made a
secret visit to Italy, largely on account of
the Vatican troubles. Tne French elections
overshadow everything.
Berlik, September 14. The hearty re
ception given 10 Emperor William at Han
over has been a gratifying surprise, as
showing the extinction of the anti-Prussian
party with the popular growth of a Ger
man national sentiment The progress ol
the Imperial party through the densely
crowded and richly decorated streets, the
continuous ovations and rollinj; bnrsts of
acclaims, must have struck a chill to the
hearts of the old adherents of the Guelph
Monarchy who heard them.
Equal enthusiasm was displayed when
the Emperor drove from the Schloss fo wel
come tie Czarewitch. The spontaneous
character of the demonstration could not be
doubted. It was the Emperor's first visit
to the capital of the conquered kingdom.
He and his entourage expected a lukewarm
His pleasure over the welcome found ex
pression in the words that he addressed to
Herr Bennigoii. President of the province.
He found himself among his own people in
Hanover, ne .iid. His meeting with'the
Czarewitch was invested with unwonted
eclat, the honors being the same as would
have been accorded the Czar. Around the
Emperor were Prince Albecht, the GranU
Dukes of Hesse and Oldenburg, Prince
Charles of Sweden, several German prince
lings and court officials.
The Czarewitch cordially responded to
the Emperor's greeting. They drove through
ranks ot veterans and members of the city
guild to the Schloss. Yesterday's review
was a brilliant spectacle. The Czarewitch
rode on the Emperor's right. Count von
"Waldersee led the Hanoverian Uhlans and
Prince George the Sixteenth Uhlans.
Prince Albecht was at the head of the
Brunswickers. The Emperor rode along
the line of 7,000 men and expressed com
plete satisfaction with the bearing ot the
Returning to the Schloss the Imperial
party visited the Guild of Brewers. The
Emperor drank a glass of beer and the
Empress was presented with a boquet. The
fact that the Czarewitch was received in a
style usually reserved for crowned heads is
exciting universal attention.
The programme of his reception at Kiel
and Hanover was dictated by Prince Bis
marcb, who was acuated by his knowledge
that the Czarowitz is disposed to renew
the amicable relations with Germany. His
influence may assist the Chancellor's final
efforts to modify the Czar's hostility.
According to the present arrangement on
his visit to Potsdam the Czar is determined
to avoid all reference to the political situa
tion. .Neither II. De Giers or any other
.Minister of his political Cabinet will accom
pany him. His suite will be composed
bolely of military officers. Prince Bismarck
is credited with aiming to obtain an inter
view similar to the historic conference of
November, 1887.
The Czar, in assenting to the programme
of the visit, has ignored the existence of the
Chancellor. A court report has it that he
prefers not to meet him. 'Whatever weight
the Czarowitz has with his father will tend
in lavor of according an interview with
Prince Bismarck.
The Emperor will go to Wismar on Tues
day to attend the maneuvers of the Ninth
corps. He will return to Hanover on Sep
tember 20, where he will command in the
battle between the Tenth and Seventh corps,
at which the smokeless powder will be used.
He is enjoying splendid healtn despite in
cessant tatigue.
,His speeches at the military banquets
given at Dresden and Minden smacked
stronglvojwar. At Dresden he toasted
"Die Kriegsbereite Sohne Sachsens," as
willing to renew the traditions of Sedan.
At Minden-,he reminded the Seventh Corps
of their heroic achievements at Mars La
Tour and Vionville, and added: "Let them
hold fast what-they had gained." General
"Von Albedyll responded, saying that thev
would prove themselves Prussian soldiers
with every thought and with every drop of
blood iu them.
Count Herbert Bismarck, during his sup
posed sojourn in England, secretly went to
Pieve di Cardore, Italy, where he had an
interview with Signor Crispi. Count Her-
utn remained mere a weec in strict pri
vacy. He had three meetings with the
Italian Prime Minister, who was also very
private in his movements.
The interviews related to the projected
meeting of Emperor "William, the Emperor
of Austria and the King of Italy at Naples
and the relations between Italy and the
Vatican. The Emperor of Austria's visit
is contingent upon the Italian Government
modifying its policy toward the church, re
fraining from interfering with the officers
,of the Vatican, suppressing demonstrations
similar to the Bruno celebration and a re
newal of the pledges to observe the law
Prince Bismarck charged Herr Schloezer
who went to Friedrichsrulieon Thursday, to
inform the Pope on his return to Konie,that
Italy's allies would constrain the Quiriual
to respect the wishes of the Vatican.
A renewal of theCantrist activity is in
prospect. A rewakencd Kulturkempf is
among Prince Bismarck's incentives to
curry favor with the Vatican. The Center
party organs issue a manifesto convoking
a Catholic Congress in Munich on Septem
ber 23, in which a restoration of the tempo

nity of the functions of the Vicar of Christ.

A Hint nt llio Reception of Some Pittsburg
Gentlemen In Scotland.
It is well known that during the recent
storm along the Jersey coast the waves ran
mountain high. They washed over land
which had long been above the highest
tides, and covered the eartn far inland with
strange creatures torn from the ocean
depths, and with the wreckage of many un
fortunate vessels. It seems remarkable that
upon a cranberry bush near Manunka
chunk should be found a piece of
newspaper, apparently a fragment of
the Glasgow Herald, containing what
seems to be a report of an episode in the
travels of three well-known citizens of
Pittsburg. In reproducing a part of it, it
is but giving the interests of truth a fair
shake to state that the esteemed Scotch co
temporary (if the following is really from
the Glasgow press) errs in conveying the
impression that Mr. Mageeand Mr. Rogers
were traveling as either attendants or secre
taries to Mr. Kobertson. They traveled in

ing in the loss of a niece about the size and
shape of a patch on a middle-aged farmer's
trousers, loses us the introduction, but the

town meeting in that city, seems to have

snuffbox, and
Iu response to loud calls Mr. Robertson took
the platform, holding In one hand a bunch of
heather and in the otuera small American flag,
which created great enthusiasm. Alter thank
ing the audience for their kind reception,
which he accepted as a compliment to his
adopted country applause, he gave a short
sketch of his career, beginning with
his running awav from Glasgow, an
aDprentice boy, 22 years ago. telling
how, after serving three years in the State
Legislature, he had been elevated to a seat in
the Town Council, and quoting from some of
his speeches in both bodies to show with what
authority a Scotch workingman might speak
out in America. Mr. Robertson said that he
bad called to see his old master, wbo had
showed the usual Scotch thrift applause by
claiming that he (Mr. Robertson) owed him
2 as a week for nve years' lost service,
and the usual Scotch shrewdness more ap
plause in making the best of a bad bargain by
compromising the claim for a couple of bottles
of champagne, which Mr. Robertson informs us
is the common everyday drink in America.
Mr. Robertson referred to the great men
whom Scotland has produced, Wallace, Bruce,
Carnegie and Argyle, and said that great as
they all nere.lt was to the last named noble
philanthropist that Caledonia was most in
debted, for never had thero been a day
since he landed In Scotland, but he and his
comDanions had bad reason to exclaim, 'God
bless ihe Duke of Argyle.' He assured the
company that Mr. Andrew Carnegie, umquhile
of Dumfcrmline. was verv hitrhly esteemed in
the town of Pittsburc, although he has not yet
been honored with a seat in the Town Council,
and alluded with proper affection to his
attendants, Frederick M. Magee and Will
iam B. Rogers, who, through the
kindness of the committee were permitted to
have seats on the platform near the speakers.
At this they arose and, although evidently un
used to figure so prominently, acknowledged
his kindness by a neat bow.
Mr. Gladstone' own golden wedding hap
pening on the same day was ample excuse for
his absence, and bis letter, expressing his com
pliments and regrets, was loudly cheered.
Two Butchers Drink Beer nnd a Knife la
Used In Some Way.
Kew York, September 14. Timothy
O'Brien, a sheep butcher who lived in New
Durham, N. J., died at the City Hospital,
in Jersey City, early this morning of the
effects of a cut on his right wrist, inflicted
by his brother Morris, who is also a butcher.
Morris is locked up 5a the city prison ac
cused of murder. The affair occurred in
Morris' home Jersey City. Morris O'Brien
is employed in the Jersey City abattoir, in
Grove 'street. Timothy worked in New
Durham, near his home. He was unmarried.
On Friday afternoon about- 6. o'clock he
callfd at his brother's house slightly under
the influence of liquor. He took supper
there. After supper tbey sent out for a can
of beer and drank it. During the evening
ther drank several more.
About 930 o'clock Morris was heard at
the window crying "Murder! Police!"
Roundsman Flannelly, who was passing
the house, ran upstairs. He found Morris
O'Brien with a long knife, such as is used
in skinning sheep, in his hand. The knife
was covered with blood. Timothy sat on a
chair near the door, with a towel wound
tightly around his wrist; The towel was
soaked with blood. The roundsman
asked Timothy what was the matter with
him, and he replied: "It was my own
"Who did it?" the roundsman asked of
"I did," he replied, "but it was his own
Dr. Hoffman was called. He ordered
Timothy's removal to the city hospital, and
gave it as his opinion that he could not
live, because he had lost so much blood.
Morris relused to tell how the affair had
happened. It appears from the statement
of the widow that the men were fooling, not
A Romantic Story From Tennessee An Old
Couple's Loves.
Hopkinstille, Kt., September 14.
John Keel, who lives on the edge of Ten
nessee, not far from here, courted
pretty Lucy "Walker, a neighbor's
daughter, and married her in
1846. The couple lived together
for 30 years, and raised a family of four
children. All the children married and
moved away. The old couple became lonely.
and they got a young lady named Jane
Hunter to come and" live with
them. Miss Hunter was abont 20,
bright and attractive. It - was soon
evident that Mr. Walker was much at
tached to young Miss Hunter. His wife
gicw jealous and accused him of falling in
love with the girl. He frankly admitted it,
and said that he would marry "her if he did
not have a wife already.
Mrs. "Walker left her husband and soon
afterward obtained a divorce. The old man
and the young woman were then married
and came over the line into this country
to live. They bought a farm about
three miles from here, and lived together
apparently veryhappy for 12 years. At
the end of that time they disagreed and sep
arated, the second Mrs. Keel, like the first,
obtaining a divorce. The old man went
back to Tennessee, where the wile of his
youth had remained faithful and alone.
His heart turned again toward her when
they met, and he proposed that they be
remarried. She agreed. Last Wednesday
the wedding occurred and they began life
where they were first married, 43 years ago.
Toe Canadian Pacific Railroad Will Bridge
Kiagnra River.
Lockpoet, September 14. President
Van Home, of the Canadian Pacific, was
interviewed this morning at Hamilton. He
said his road would reach the Niagara river
and build a bridge pf its own across
the stream, making its connections with
New York over the Eome, Water
town and Ogdensburg, and the Ontario
and Western. "We think the policy of
leasing a bridge, or right of way over a
bridge, belonging to some one else, is a poor
one," he said, "and we will therefore build
one exclusively for ourselves and for our
own connections."
Mr. Van Home refused to state what their
Eastern connecting road would be, but it is
generally understood to be the above men
tioned roads. As to just where the bridge
will be built, below or above the interna
tional bridge, he would not say.

The Young Napoleon of Finance
Charged With Fresh Villainy.
AN ESTATE WORTH $7,000,000
To Vhich a Fraudulent Document Was to
Open Wide the Way.
A Complete Expose of the Greatest Conspiracy of Mod.
ern Times.
Henry S. Ives is now charged with for
gery in connection with his financial trans
actions. The initials of Christopher Meyer
were placed to a document designed to in
volve his 7,000,000 estate in the financial
operations of the young Napoleon. This
signature is denounced as fraudulent.
New York, September 14. The Evening
Sun, in its last edition to-day, prints' a long
and sensational story, in which it charges
Henry S. Ives with an attempt to rob the
estate of the late Christopher Meyer of
$7,000,000 by means of forgery. The Sun
Henry 8. Ives, who has been so often and so
truly referred to in these columns as the
master thief, also ranks high among forgers.
The narrative will show that he, by the forgery
of two initials, a C and an M, was in a fair way
to obtain at least 5100,000 in cold cash and to
open a till which contained something more
thaa 57,000,000. Ives added to his previous
crimes that of forgery in the latter part of last
December. This fact is published to-day for
the first time and can be substantiated when
ever it shall become necessary.
The story which follows tells how Meyer
was induced to lend money to Ives and
Stayner, and how the discovery of their
crimes finally drove him to his grave. The
Sun says that within three months after
Meyer's death there. was put into operation,
through Ives' agency, a scheme to im
poverish Mever's estate and to open up to
himself and his confederates a mine of 57,
000,000. The story continues:
In the fall of 1SS8 there was begun in an Ohio
court a suit by Albert Neuter against Henry S.
Ives, George H. Stayner and the executors of
the estate of Christopher Meyer, for the bal
ance of the purchase money ot his syndicate
interest remaining unpaid. Voluminous depo
sitions in that action were taken in this city
during all last fall, bat only the most meagre
outline of the case was ever made public
No sooner, however, bad the plaintiff begun
his case than the collusive character of the ac
tion was revealed. Ives and Stayner were nom
inally defendants, but they were the principal
witnesses whom the plaintiff called to prove his
claim against themselves.
Neither of tbem was solvent, and the mani
fest intention was to turn to the only respon
sible defendant the estate of Christopher
Meyer. To make that estate answerable ft
was necessary to prove that Meyer had been a
partner of the Ives gang, and as such respon
sible for all their losses.
Meyer was dead, and could deny nothing.
The ready lips of Ives and Stayner swore with
affected reluctance to everything essential to
prove bis partnership. They produced from
tbeir own letter books written propositions to
Meyer, which, if accepted, would have made
him a partner. But unfortunately for this
scheme, outside of their own declarations, they
could prove no acceptance by Meyer of their
Ives appreciated the difficulties of the situa
tion and proceeded characteristically to over
come them. It was necessary to produce some
writing binding Meyer. None such was In ex
istence, and the very fact of such a tiling had
been disclaimed by Ives and Stayner in their
deposition. But to a "Napoleonic1' mind such
obstacles are trivial.
If the document did not exist it must be
made to exist The project was no sooner con
ceived, than executed. Facilities were not
wanting. Stayner had been an engraver in his
youth, and in that capacity had first come into
the employ of the American Bank Note Com
pany, and Ives himself was not unskillful with
the pen. Accordingly, at the next meeting of
the reference, there was voluntarily produced
by Stayner a document which met all the con
spirator's requirements. Without the slightest
prior suggestion it had sprung into life fully
matured and ready for business. Of course it
clearly showed ileyer.a partner of Ives,Stayner
and Netter, and responsible for all claims
against them to the- full extent of bis estate.
The Sun then gives in lull the agreement
which Ives and Stayner said made Meyer a
full partner with them in the Cincinnati,
Hamilton and Dayton deal.
The document was signed: H. S. I.
And witness, E. W. W.
The article continues:
Tbis extraordinary document was wbolly in
Ives'Jiandwriting in lead pencil upon a sheet
of Cincinnati, Hamilton and Dayton letter
paper. The initials H. S. I. were Ives', the in
itial G. H. S. were Stavner's. the initials R. V
W.as witness were Woodruffs, and the initials
C. M. were declared to have been written by
Christopher Meyer. Of the genuineness of the
first three there could be little doubt, but the
moment that examination was directed to the
initials "C. M." they were declared by those
familiar with Meyer's handwriting to be a for
gery. Tbey were firm and bold, while Mever's
handwriting at the alleged date of the agree
ment, was uncertain ana iremuung. .Enlarged
photographs gave evidences of tracing or man
ufacture of the initials, and examination
through a powerful magnifying glass confirmed
the first suspicions.
Then follow the details of the forgery,
showing Tiow the idea of imitating the
Meyer signature was discussed by Ives,
Stayner and Woodruff in Stayner's house in
Brooklyn, and how Ives had instructed
Woodruff to swearthat the forged agreement
was the one which he had witnessed in
Meyer's presence. The story is a remark
able one, and shows that Ives was not to be
daunted by any obstacle. In an interview
with Ives in the Tombs this afternoon he in
sisted that the copy of the agreement pro
duced at the reference was a genuine one
and all the signatures were genuine.
Mr. Julius L. Dexter, President of the
Cincinnati, Hamilton and Dayton road, was
seen to-night concerning the Sun's story re
garding Henry S. Ives. Mr. Dexter said:
"I saw the document referred to when it
was in the possession of F. M. Ramsay, of
Cincinnati, attorney for the Meyer estate. I
noticed the signature particularly, but don't
care to say anything about'the matter. I
believe a photograph of it is now in Ram
say's possession. In my opinion, this entire
story came from Woodruffs lips, at any
rate, at second or third hands."
Mr. Dexter is to testify at the Ives trial
on Tuesday or Wednesday.
Canadians Will Induce Ernstus Wiman to
Become n Lawmaker.
Ottawa, September 14. The admirers
in Canada of Mr. Erastus Wiman and his
policy for promoting closer commercial re
lations between the Dominion and the
United States are looking quietly about for
a constituency to offer him for con
test in a seat for the next Dominion
Parliament. The movement has been
started without consulting Mr. Wiman.
Several counties are open for him, and the
question of his representing a Canadian
constituency and having a voice iu the
political destiny of the Dominion appears to
be only a matter for himself to decide.
The only qualification required to hold a
seat in the Parliament of Canada, is that of
being a British subject, without reference
to domicile, and ronsequently there are no
restrictions to prevent Mr. Wiman from
occupying a seat in the Canadian House of

WASHiNGTON.September 14. An exami
nation of ther June accounts of the Wash
ington City pension agency by the Pension
Division of the Third Auditor's office shows
an Dver payment of $2,100 on one voucher.
A number of smaller over-payments have
also been recently discovered in the
accounts of other pension agencies. These
errors are said to have resulted from an
effort to increase the work of the clerks be
yond their capacity. The clerks are now
required to maintain an average of 1,000
vouchers a day, but it is contended that the
interests of the Government would be better
protected if this average was reduced to 500
vouchers per day.
The Star to-night says that the President
tendered the Pension Commissionership to
Major William Warner this morning, and
that the latter has taken the matter under
consideration, with the chances in favor of
his declining it on the ground that he can
not afford to surrender his present business
engagements. In conversation with a re
porter this afternoon Major Warner inti
mated that he had not yet reached a con
clusion in the matter. The impression in
Washington is that the matter will be set
tled by the President during the coming
week, and that the appointment when de
cided upon will be first announced at Deer
Park. '
A dispatch from Kansas City says:
Whatever doubt existed in the minds of
Major William Warner's iriends here that
President Harrison has offered him the
Commissionership of Pensions was dispelled
this evening when Mrs. Warner received
from her husband a telegram that read as
follows: "I am still undecided."

Workmen Discover a Cavern Supposed to
Contain Rich Deposits.
Chattanooga, September 14 Near Koss-
. ville, on tho old farm of John Boss, the power
ful chief of the Cherokces, a probably very
rich find of lead ore has been made in a sin
gular manner. A large force of workmen are
engaged- in excavating for a new lake, near
East End, a Chattanooga suburb. One of the
men struck loose dirt at some distance from
the surface. Directly after the entrance to a
cave was discovered, and in this cavern the
lead, it is supposed, will be found.
An old tradition says that a cave containing
rich deposits of galena was mined by the
Indians. When they were driven away west
of the Mississippi they filled in the cave to
prevent their white enemies from finding and
using the rich stores of metal therein. Many
attempts have been made to find it, but all un
successfully, and chance has unlocked the
secret. A thorough exploration will be made.

Mr. Nickerson, were present, together with
numerous newspaper reporters. The meeting

Teemer renewed his objections at length, to
the effect that Hamm had interfered with him
so much as to break his boat, and also that
Hamm was on the course as a guide for
Gaudaur. There was a lengthy exchange of
opinion regarding the first charger Teemer
stated Hamm crossed his course three times
and forced him into midstream. On one of the
occasions, Teemer claims that he ran into
Hamm's boat, breaking bis, Teemer's. The
latter wanted to produce testimony relative to
matters previous to the race, but the referee
refused to admit it
Mr. St. John replied that Hamm denied in
toto that he interfered with Teemer at all, or
that he was within 50 feetof Teemer. St. John
argued that Hamm was on the course to keep
it clear for the rowers.
Teemer said: "Mr. Referee, I ordered my
judge to warn you that Hamm would be on the
course, and tbat you should look out for him.
Did my judiie warn you about it?"
The referee answered: "I told St. John that
your judge objected to Hamm's presence on
the course, and Mr. St. John said that Hamm
would not interfere. with the rowers."
The referee then overruled Teemer's claim
regarding the foul, and asked St John if he
did not think Hamm violated rule 16 by being
on the course for the acknowledged purpose of
keeping Gaudaur clear of snags. At first Mr.
St John doubted whether or not Hamm made
this admission, but finally granted that he dii'.
The referee Well, now, Mr. St. John, do
you think that a man on the course guiding a
contestant from running into snags is not as
sisting him? The rule forbids assistance.
Mr. St. J ohn Well, if Hamm did say tbat
his object on the course was to keep Gaudaur
clear of snags he did not do it
The referee: "But he says he was there for
that purpose;and it is Impossible to tell
whether he carried out his purpose or not.
He could do it in many ways, and at any rate
it is a fact that he was very close to both
must be taken into account, and he positively
said he was on the course for the object
After a farther exchange of opinions the ref
eree said: '"I thtnk under the circumstances
Hamm's presence on the course was a violation
of rule 16, and the fairest way will be to row
the race over again on Monday at 4 o'clock."
Teemer objected, claiming that his boat was
broken and that be could not possibly get a boat
to row on Monday. The referee, however, in
sisted on bis decision. St. John then stated
that Gaudaur's life would be in danger if he
rowed at McKeesport, and it was suggested
that the race take place on the McKee's Kocks
Mr. St. John I would not have another race
here for 10,000. The money to me is nothing.
We have won the race once, and I object to
rowing for the money a second time.
After some morotalK Teemer offered to in
crease the stakes to $1,500 a side, and row on
any lake course. To this Mr. St. John ob
jected, and finally they agreed to each take his
81,000 stake money down. All bets were then
declared off.
Mr. St John naturally felt indignant about
the decision, and subsequently didn't hesitate
to say that it was one of the most outrageous
he had heard during his long experience in
boat racing. He, Gaudaur and Hamm, last
evening, all emphatically declared the affair a
hold robbery in daylight Mr. St. John wired
the latter opinion to the St Louis papers.
.Anybody can well understand the strung lan
guage, but bitter words are one thing and rea
sonable argument is another. The Dispatch
held the stakes and acted as referee with the
determination tbat a fair race from end to end,
a race strictly in accordance with the rules,
should be rowed. There was absolute
ly no object whatever to induce The
Dispatch to deviate from the rules, and the
latter were enforced without any considera
tion as to who was the superior rower. There
was not yesterday afternoon the remotest argu
ment to show that Hamm's presence and ac
knowledged actions on the course was not a vi
olation of tho rules. If the decision was costly
and disappointing to Mr. Gaudaur, it was cer
tainly the resnlt of his own trainer's actions. If
a race has not to be rowed according to the
rules it is useless to have any at all.
Mr. St. John and Teemer each received a
check for $1,000 at The Dispatch business
office and the matter, was ended. The decision
cave general satisfaction and was looked upon
by the majority of people as a protection to the
public. There undoubtedly were many things
that led practical sporting people to think that
there was in some way "business" connected
with the affair. The decision at least leaves
the public neither loser nor winner.
It was stated last evening that Hamm wiil
enter suit against Teemer, charging the latter
with mayhem. Hamm claims that during the
row at McKeesport Teemer bit his cheek.
Ther Think He Hnd the Rnco Won,
Wants to Row Again.
McKeesport. September 14 The decision
of the referee in orderingTeemerand Gaudaur
to row the race over was received hero with
universal favor. It is generally believed that
Teemer had the race won when he had so great
a lead on Gaudaur at the end of the first mile,
and would have won it but for interference.
The story of the Gaudaur party claiming that
Gaudaur was given a deadly drug is laughed
at, no one credits it and the public expression
is that it is simply ridiculous ana was the weak
effort of a very poor brain that originated it.
.McKeesport is again exciteu anu entuusiastic
over the nroSDect
of seeing the race rowed
again and John Teemer is in hopes tbat he will
be given a fair show on this occasion.
McGregor Boy Dend.
Dubuque, Ia., September 14. At the Jack
son county fair yesterday at Maqnoketa an acci
dent in the 2:30 trotting races resulted in the
death of McGregor Boy, one of the trotters,
and a probably fatal injury to Bert Smith, his
driver. A Clinton horse and McGregor Boy
got off ahead, the latter slightly in the lead.
At the first turn, the former tried to take the
pole from McGregor. The wheels of the
sulkies interlocked and both horses and their
drivers were thrown to the ground. McGregor
Boy's neck was broken, and he died instantly.
Bert Smith, his driver, had an arm broken and
was internally injured. McGregor Boy was
owned by Mr. Adams, of Frophetstown, 111.,
and was valued at $8,000.
Senrle Will Kow Again. ,
London, September 11 The recent sculling
race is certain to give rise to further matches
here. Searle has already signed articles to row
Bubear, the Englishman, and as O'Connor
would like to fight the battle over again, Searlo
has expressed his willingness to row him in a
month's time. It is 'hardly likely that Searle
will consent to tow Gaudaur over the lake
course. The Thames and Tyne courses are the
only recognized championship courses in
England. No champions here hare ever rowed
a race upon alike,
