Columbus, O.. September 23. The con
test in Ohio is reachinc the point of
pjrotechnic display. Politics is at Jever
heat in all the cities and hamlets, and
special attention is being given to the
creation of enthusiasm and interest in the
districts. It is practically a speaking
campaign. The head of each ticket has no
superior within his party in the State as a
stump orator. Governor Foraker is
especially fortunate in this regard. His
work in former campaigns in Ohio has
demonstrated that he is a dangerous
opponent on the stump. The county fairs,
soldiers' reunions and other gatherings
have placed both speakers in demand.
Their time is filled every day, and on some
they are obliged to speak two or three
times, in order to meet the demands made
MONSTROUS MEETINGS HELD.
Testerdav Mr. Campbell addressed a
monstrous meeting at Bucyrus in the after
noon, attended the county fair, where he de
livered another short address, was present
at a large country wedding, and in the
evening made another political speech. To
night he is at Hamilton, where one of the
largest meetings ol the campaign it being
held, with Democratic clubs and bands
from Cincinnati, Dayton, and the surround
ing towns. Governor Poraker has put in
Tan equally busy week, and to-night is ad
dressing a large meeting at Music Hall,
Cincinnati. They are tracing each other
closely in the campaign territory, and the
people are being thoroughly advised on
both sides of the issues.
It is too early to predict with any certainty
what the result will be. As yet the issues
are not clearly defined, except that of the
tariff. There are many who think the local
issues will have more influence than the
tariff. Mr. Campbell is urging, with con
siderable force, the alleged mismanagement
of the finances of the State and the conduct
of the business of the benevolent and penal
institutions under the Poraker administra
tion. Another point which is being urged by
the Democratic candidate, as well as by the
State Committee and the Democratic party,
is that of
The creation of the numerous election
boards in the State and the boards of affairs
for the management ol Cinrinnati, Hamil
ton, and other cities is being urged as a
peculiar species of Porakerism and the
tendency to centralization and robbing the
cities of local self-government These
questions are all urged separate from that
of the third-term idea, and are given as a
reason why the third-term precedent should
not be established, especially so with Gov
ernor Poraker and his personal surround
ings as tbe principal figure.
In opposition to the claims of the. Democ
racy the Kepublicans are urging the ex
cellent management of the State affairs, and
they insist that Campbell opened and
closed the campaign in his speech of ac
ceptance at the Dayton convention, and
insured his defeat, if there had been
nothing more said in the campaign.
There are a large number of Democrats
who are stronglv in favor of the board of
elections and their machinery, and it is not
believed their creation will work detriment
to the Republican ticket The Kepublicans
use the argument that those hoards were
necessary in order to withstand frauds on
the ballot Another thing "which affects
this argument on the part of the Democrats
is that tbe legislation looking to boards of
election was principally enacted by a former
THE EFFECTIVE POINTS.
As the campaign progresses the effective
points of the contest crop out It is dis
covered that all the single-tax men in the
State are arraying themselves, by organiza
tion and through their publications, against
Mr. Campbell, because of his alleged duplic
ity on the tariff question.
There is opposition to Poraker in his own
party by some who for personal reasons
make a great deal of noise. Among these
are General John Beatty, defeated candi
date for the nomination for Governor several
Tears ago, and Captain Lee, late Consul to
Prankfort They are appropriating a great
amount of Democratic newspaper space in
their efforts to embarrass and defeat For
akr. The Republican managers profess to be
lieve that Campbell is growing weaker on
the stump, and that he will not last through
the campaign. This is why they insist that
he opened and closed the campaign the
same day by taking issue against the
the boards of election and machinery for
the protection of the ballot It is conceded
that the Republicans can show exceedingly
effective talent on the stump. "With an ex
ception or two they have not gone outside
the State for material. One of these is

Canton last night, and has a number of

BLAINE CAK'T HELP OUT.
The Republican Committee has been in
communication with Secretary Blaine,
urging him to take a hand, but have re
vived a final answer that he will be un
able to give them any time, owing" to a
pressure of official bnsiness. Ou'side of
Poraker, ex-Governor Poster is in greater
demand as a speaker than any other in the
Slate. He addressed a large meeting at
"Westerville, 12 miles north of Columbus,
to-night, which was attended by the Re
publican clubs and Poraker Glee Club of
It is difficult to determine the force of the
several influences at work in the campaign,
and their result will not be felt until
further on. The Senatorial question is
cutting a strong nsure on both sides. On
tbe part of the Republicans there seems a
general understanding among the work
ers that ex-Governor Poster will suc
ceed Senator Payne, should the Legislature
DeBepublican. Poster is member of the
Executive Committee, but being a recog
nized candidate for the Senate he is not
taking an active part at headquarters, pre
ferring to fill in tbe time on the stump and
trust tbe management of the campaign to
other friends, although he gives them the
benefit of his advice.
Foraker is represented on the active force
of the committee by his Private Secretary,
Charles L. Kurtz, who has charge of the ap
pointments in the State for Republican
meetings, and John M. Doane, Secretary,
who is State Librarian by appointment of
the. Governor. W. S. Cappeller, ex-Chair-.man
and Railroad Commissioner of the
State, Is also personally looking after the
interests of the Governor.
Poster is supposed to t? a heavy con-J
tributor to the campaign fund, and ft is
reasonable to suppose the close-Legislative
counties will be looked after in his interest
"While a good portiou of the money maybe
expended in the close Legislative districts,
it will certainly result in benefit to the
entire Republican ticket and Governor
Foriker. The interests of Foster in the
committee will not be in the least neglected
lrom now till the close of the campaign,
hut rather special attention .will be directed

agers Ohio has produced.
A. L. Conger, Chairman of the State Cob
mittee, has just closed up some private
bnsiness affairs in the "West, and will now
devote himself to the work oi the campaign.
He believes the Legislature can be carried
without the aid of Hamilton county. Cer
tain portions of the Cuyahoga county Re
publican ticket are open to more serious ob
jections than in Hamilton. Ex-Speaker
Hodge is nominated, and
HAS A STEOSO FIGHT k
to make. Ex-Representative John P. Green,
colored.is also a nominee. He is the most un
popular and objectionable colored man that
ever had to do with affairs of state. Not
withstanding these weak points, the Repub
licans do not consider their Legislative ticket
Mark A. Hanna, of Cleveland, who war
chosen a member of the Republican Com
mittee, has so far refused to meet with them,
and his expected contributions will be lost
It is understood Hanna will not vote for
The Senatorial situation on the Demo
cratic side is equally interesting. As dis
tinguished from the State ticket proper,
Mr. Campbell is given the credit of being
more of a policitian than his friends ex
pected, bv the clever manner in which he
is handling the candidates for the Senate.
It looks as if he would benefit from
all of them. His principal opponent
for the nomination, L. T. Neal, it
is said, has been promised the
support of Campbeli tor the Senate, in case
of election, and the result is that Neal is
putting in full time on the stump, when it
was expected he would be sulking. Like-'
wise, Campbell will benefit from the other
candidates. It has been so arranged by the
State Committee that the county conven
tions which are being held shall adopt reso
lutions of indorsement for 'their favorites,
and thus give each a supposed showing in
MUCH MONEY IN IT.
J. H. Thomas, a wealthy manufacturer of
Springfield, is in the fight and it is ex
pected his donation to the campaign fund
will be substantial. While Senator Payne
could look for nothing more than a tem
porary indorsement, yet it is thought, be
cause of the strictures which have been
made upon him, and that he inay
have something to say in the contest against
Halstpd, he has concluded to aid the State
committee. Calvin S. Brice will not be a
candidate for the Senate, so long as his per
sonal and bnsiness friend, Governor Foster,
has a chance to win the prize on the Repub
lican side. Jonathan H. "Wallace, of Co
lumbiana county, who made such a good
fight for the Democratic nomination, is in
tbe swim for Senatorial recognition, and
will aid greatly in the campaign.
The knowing ones, however, in the Demo
cratic management, are covered with broad
smiles over the preliminary contest which is
going on. Should the Democrats win in
the Legislature, it is conceded that John It.
McLean will be able to control the Demo
cratic caucus. "While numerous denials are
made for him to the effect that he is not a
candidate, it is well known -that he is in the
field, and that the power behind the cam
paign committee comes from that source.
Attack a Diligence In Which a Plucky
American Is Traveling; They Get

Time They Don't.
JBFECLU. TELrOIlXM TO THE DISPATCU.1
City op Mexico, September 28. Three
bandits yesterday attacked a diligence in
the State of Vera Cruz. Among its passen
gers were a number of Americans. The
driver, at thefcommand of the highwaymen,
who were backed by three revolvers,
brought his horses to a standstill.
He was made to dismount, and in
the usual style was made to stand
at one side of tbe roadway, with his hands
pointing heavenward. The passengers were
then requested to step out ot the coach and
fall in line with the driver. One of the
Americans was the first to obey the man
date. He, however, on dismounting did
not leave his "Winchester behind, and had
hardly touched Mother Earth when he com
menced to pump cold lead Into the high
waymen with a skill that put them to
The day following this episode, and in the
same vicinity, the identical gang tackled
the stage again. They succeeded in reliev
ing the passengers, who were all Mexicans,
of everything of value on their persons and
left them doing duty in line with their
hands above their beads. Flushed with the
success that had attended their exploit, the
highwaymen had not gone far before they
fell in with two mnle driver's, and at the
point of the revolver proceeded fo despoil
them of everything that they had packed
upon their animals. One of the mule
drivers, no relishing the treatment, re
monstrated. He was tied, thrown to the
ground and his nose buried in the sand.
His companion kept a discreet silence dur
ing the disposition of his goods, and was not

THE SITUATION IS NOW YEEY SERIOUS.
Ensslan troops Are Being Massed ia Great Numbers
on the Frontier.
It is announced that the Czarina has a
bad cold, and the visit of the Russian mon
arch to Berlin has been indefinitely post
poned. A war feeling is now dominant
tbrougbout Germany. Emperor William is
taking a great interest in the subject of

Beelut, September 28. The Czar has
sent an autograph letter to Emperor "Wil
liam, stating that the Czarina has caught
cold, and that her physicians have advised
her to delay her departure for several days.
The Czar asks that the final directions for
his reception at Potsdam be delayed.
Prince Bismarck has since communicated
with Count Schouvalofi, the Russian Min
ister, in regard to the arrangements of the
Czar in the event of his coming to Berlin.
Count Schouvaloff replied that he had or
ders to prepare to receive the Czar and his
suite at the ambassy. The Czar himself has
not intimated bis intentions beyond his
visit to Potsdam. The Emperor will go to
Schwerein on Tuesday, as the gucst.of the
Grand Dnke of Meck'linburg.
THE EXPECTED VISIT.
According to the National Zeitung, the
Czar's visit is officially fixed for October 9.
The absence of M. De Giers, the Bussian
Prime Minister, who is now staying in a
remote part of the province of Tambor, does
not appear to affect Prince Bismarck's de
termination to have an audience with the
The week has been signalized by an out
break of the war clamor by the semi-official
press. The Cologne Gazette publishes an
alarmist article on the extension of -the
Bussian strategic railways on the frontier,
which the North German Gazette promi
nently quotes. There is a simultaneous
reappearance of war notes in the Chancel
The Vienna papers foment the scare by
statements that the Bussians along the fron

Observation towers are being erected
close to the" Galicoam frontier, the whole
aspect of the country giving the impression
that the army is making a strategic march.
These reports have been directly suppressed
by the Vienna and Berlin Ministers.
Bismarck's motive in re-creating agitation
over the Bussian armaments on the eve ot
the Czar's reception is variously interpreted.
Recalling the incidents prior to the last in
terview the Czar accorded him here, it is
obvious that the Chancellor aims to place the
Czar again under the necessity of granting a

a positive aversion.
The Czar's aversion to meeting the Chan
cellor or to giving bis visit any character
other than that of a formal courtesy, has
been intensified by the projected journey of
Emperor "William to Constantinople. The
programme of the Emperor's tour is now
announced to include a visit to Bucharest,
which will further annoy the Czar.
The Moscow papers ak if Bismarck
dreams of detaching the Greeks from the
traditions of Bussian alliance. The Greeks
attach superstitious import to the marriage
of the Dukeof Sparata and Princess Sophia.
An old prophecy is recalled by the papers
of Athens and reproduced here to the effect
that the Mosque of St Sophia in Constan
tinople will be restored to tbe Christians
under the rule of a Greek Emperor named
Constantme, with a wife called Sophia.
The coincidence of the Duke of Sparta's
name, Constantine, and that of the Princess
Sophia, is exciting the imagination of all
Greeks as a hopeful augury of coming
events, a feeling which Bismarck will take
advantage of. The Empress will accom
pany the Emperor to Constantinople and
will stay on the Imperial yacht while the
Sultan entertains his Majesty.

The Post to-nigbt semi-officially denies
that Count vonMunster has resigned as
German Ambassador to Frauce. A report
to that eflect was part of the current rumors
that Count Hatzfeldt would be transferred
to Paris, Count von 'Waldersee going to
London. The Post does not contradict the
Von "Waldersee rumor.
Bismarck is again intriguing with the
Emperor to send Von Waldersee to a high
diplomatic post, in which Bismarckian

A Yonng Woman Suddenly Learns That Her
Adopted Parents Weren't Her Own
Driven From Home by an In
IBPICUL TELEOJIAM TO THE DISPATCH. 1
New York, September 28. E. L. Irion
told Coroner Levy to-day that he believed
that Miss Anna Lorenza Shaw,20 years old,
daughter of Mrs. Louise Shaw,a hair dealer,
had been killed by ill treatment of her step
father, Dr. Francis F. llareschal. Mrs.
Shaw and her husband, Dr. Mareschal, live
at 66 West Fifty-sixth street, where Anna
died. Coroner Levy went to the house this
evening and found no grounds for suspicion.
When Mrs. Shaw learned who the com
plainant was she said that Irion was a
wretch. She married Dr. Mareschal 11
years ago, she said, and had every confi
dence in him. He was even kinder than
herself to her "baby Nana," as she
termed Anna. She had made her will
recently, Mrs. Shaw continued, and had
left her house to Dr. Mareschal. Irion was
envious because she had not given it to him,
although she had left a good sum of money
to Mrs. Irion. "That man's wife is not my
daughter, anyway, she said; "she is my
adopted daughter. She does not know it
herself. She was brought up from a baby
as my own child."
At this juncture Mrs. Irion herself, wear
ing a hat and sacque, came in from the
street and went immediately to Mrs. Shaw's
room. She is a rather good-looking young
woman, and her face expresses intelligence
and kindness of heart She was greatly
excited and asked what was the matter.
Half rising in her bed, Mrs. Shaw
pointed to her and said: "It is
through your husband that my :poor baby
is going to be cut up by the coroner's
Doctors. You can leave my house this
instant You are no child of mine. You
were adopted." Mrs. Irion grew pale and
said, "un, mamma."
"Neither you nor your husband shall ever
have a penny ol my money," continued
Mrs. Shaw, pointing her toward the door.
"Go and never darken my door again."
Coroner Levy decided to postpone the
funeral, and to have an autopsy performed

SPECIAL T2XXO&UI TO THB DIBPATCH.l
New Yoke, September 28. Miss Anna
Lindle is bringing a suit against Captain
Henry Hoffman for breach of promise and
damages to the amount of $100,000. Miss
Lindle is a young German lady,
possessed of a good soprano voice,
and it was while turning her vocal'
accomplishments to advantage, the early
part ot the past summer, under the stage

representative of the Berwind-White
Coal Mining Company, is said to
be the father of grown and married
children, and his wife resides in Brooklyn.
The allegations which Miss Lindle brings
against Captain Hoffman, aside from the
mere charge of breach of promise are of
the most serious character. Miss Lindle
accepted an engagement for the summer in
Pleu's Garden, Hoboken, a resort for the
better class of Germans. Captain Hoffman
requested an introduction. "Wine was or-,

J AN APPEAL TO BEAVEB.
Whsreas, We are grateful to our fellow men
and omen for their aid, bnt we must again
earnestly appeal to the Governor and the peo
ple olhhe great Commonwealth of Pennsyl-
vaniainot to forsake ns for a little while yet,
until (very cellar is cleared and the debris in
the ftreets so far removed that tbe resting
placet of over 400 persons yet missing may be
definitely settled so far as they can be.
Th Governor was telegraphed a report of
the nition of the meeting, and a copy of the
resolutions was sent him. The people were
unanimous in the belief that it was very im
portant not to have the work discontinued
now, Ind remarks very uncomplimentary to
the Cpvernor were freely made. It is very
doubafnl, however, if anything will be ac
coini ished by this move, as Doctor Lee
state: when he left for home to-night that be
did nit think it possible that the determin
atior to close the work would be changed.
In his connection a little inside history
is gifen as to the manner in which the
Boaip of Health determined to declare that
the Anitary conditions were such that the
wori might cease. The members of the
boap had made a tour of inspection and
foutd the work progressing finely. Quite a
nuaber of cellars had not yet been cleaned
thsjhad been declared by the board to be in
ba sanitary condition, but the work was
bjwg rapidly pushed.
1 ONE OP THE PEATUEES.
While the members were driving around
tSev found the workmen removing dead
bodies at different places, and all the condi
tions pointed to the necessity of a continu
ance of the work. In the atternoon, while
the board was discussing the question, a
telegram was received from Governor Beaver
stating imperatively that the work must
cease. As it seemed to be useless for the
board to make condemnations if there were
no means ot carrying out its recommenda
tions, a resolution was adopted in con
formity with the orders from Governor
Beaver, and it was declared that tbe
sanitary conditions were such that the State
could cease operations here. It was not
until a few hours afterward that one of the
members discovered how neatly Beaver's
plan bad worked to make the Board of
Health take the responsibility for stopping
The members were hastily gotten together,
and Dr. Dudley, of Philadelphia, drew up
a resolution rescinding the former one, and
declaring that the sanitary condition neces
sitated a continnance of the work. Tbe mo
tion was heartily seconded by Dr. Edwards,
of Philadelphia) and in the discussion that
followed it was agreed that the board should
do its duty, and if the Governor failed to
carry out the work as they directed, then
the blame would rest where it belonged.
Some ot the members, however, had pre
pared to leave on the train, and could not
be induced to stay, and the matter was
dropped, but just by a mere chance was it
that the resolution was not rescinded, and
the work ordered to proceed.

SAD STATE OF THINGS. -
A Cblenkoan Tells a Terrible Tale of the
Destitution Anion Spring: Valley Min
ers' Families An Answer to Ex
Chicago, September 28. Mr. Henry D.
Lloyd, of this city, who has just returned
from a visit to Spring Valley, III., whfare
he distributed among' the destitute miners
medicines furnished by a charitable New
York lady, writes a long letter, in which he
describes the wretched condition of the peo
ple there. He says:
Among other means of getting Intelligent
and unbiased information as to tbe exact state
of things. I yisited the Catholic school and tbe
public school, in which, together, there are
over GOO children, and talked with the teachers
and many of the children. The Sisters wbo
teacb in tbe Catholic school said that their
children gave unmistakable evidence of not
bovine sufficient food. Tbeywere paler than
the year before, and they could not study as
well. Children would frequently fall asleep at
their desks from weakness. But so sturdy was
their pride and self-respect that it was almost
Impossible for tbeir teachers to obtain from
them any acknowledgement that they did not
get enongh to eat at home. Children who were
unmistakably suffering for want of nourish
ment would even refuse food when offered
them by their teacher, and In some cases, the
Bister Superior said, when food was taken by
some such child it was immediately rejected by
the stomach, showing how far the exhaustion
of hunger bad gone.
One of tbe teachers in the public school
stated -that on her way to the school In the
morning she would sometimes meet as many as
a dozen of her class, out with baskets, going to
beg. As they saw her the little ones, ashamed,
would trv to hide from sight until she bad
passed. In both schools numbers of tbe chil
dren are insufficiently clothed, little girls and
boys of tbe tenderest years having on only
some light saek or jacket, with no Undercloth
ing. It was a cold, .bleak day, but many were
barefooted. How the people bare lived at all
Is a mystery. There have been during the last
fonr weeks, ending September 25, Sve distri
butions by the Relief Committee all in goods.
No money has been given out, and the extent
of this "charity" is sufficiently indicated by
the statement, taken from the account of the
committee, that each family of seven, and
others in proDortion, had received for tbe en
tiro period of four weeks flour, meat, etc, to
tbe value of $5 83, or 84 cents worth for each
person for the whole fonr weeks
The Mayor of tbe city, tbe editor of the
Spring "Valley Gazette, the Congregational
clergyman. MrStringer, all the physicians of
tbe piace, everyone, in fact, stated without
Qualification that, were It not for the relief
rom without, the people would have starved
and would be starving. To check so scanty a
stream of relief 84 cents' worth of fooo. for
each person monthly by talk about "exaggera
tion," seerps to me nothing short of inhuman.
Mr. Lloyd declares that the death rate is
high there", and that it will be greatly in
creased as the weather grows cold. He de
clares, of his own knowledge, that the sick
and poor have been refused medicines and
medical advice by the poor authorities
there. He urges that contributions be sent
to these people.
HE SAW THE RACE.
A HcKeesporter Talks About tbe
nnd O'Connor Contest.
rPPECIAL TXZ.XOB.Uf TO TUX DI8PATCH.1
McKkespoet, September 28. A McKees
porter who arrived from England this week
and landed here to-day talks In an Interesting
way of the Searle-O'Connor race. He saw the
race and lost money on O'Connor, and Is of the
opinion that tbe Canuck- Is a better oarsman
than Searle, and that he can beat the latter
when In trim.
"I lost my money on O'Connor and wifcild
place it on bimagain," be said. "O'Connor did
not lose the lace because he cannot defeat
Searle; it was because be was out of trim.
Three days before the race he rowed a three
mile trial over tbe course and led an eight
oarea crew tne entire aistance oi tne course,
this, in connection with over training, lost the
race for him. He is a better oarsman, a more
skillful rower, has better endurance, and is a
finer built man than Searle, and I would place
my money on him to-morrow If he were to row."
Continuine he stated that immediately after
the race O'Connor said, "Had Teemer been
in this race he could have easily finished ten
boat lenths ahead of me. "meaning that O'Con
nor conld not row up to his standard and conld
not push 8earle under the circumstances. He
is of the opinion that Searle does not compare
with O'Connor, and tbat tbere are oarsmen In
this country who can defeat the former.
A BOLD FAKE.
Prominent Athletes Fooled by a Boffu Pro
srnmme of Games.
ffPECIAI. TELXOKAK TO TUX DISPATCH.
Philadelphia, September 28. There was
a disgusted crowd of athletes at the Rising
Sun Park to-day. Tbe grand complimentary
picnic and athletic games postponed on Tues
day, September 17 on account of rain and an
nounced to come off at 2.30 o'clock this after
noon, proved to be a fake. When the honr ap
pointed to start the afternoon's sport had ar
rived not a sicn was seen of Benjamin Haves,
of 125 South Third street, the projector of the
enterprise, and the one solely interested in it.
Fully two score of athletes from tbe differ
ent local athletic clubs, and from the 8 tat en
Inland Athletic Club, who were to compete,
bad been patiently waiting three-quarters of
hour lor instructions to commence tne
games, and a large number of people were con
stantly arriving and immediately departing. On
receiving no information as to the cause of the
delay, they began to grow disgusted at tbe turn
of affairs. Gottlieb Jahn, the proprietor of
tbe park, was consulted, bnt he was as much at
a loss at Mr. Hayes' and his assistants' non
appearance as the rest. It soon became ap
parent that Hayes had skipped with all the
entrance money and much beside tbat he had
raised for advertisements to be printed In
a gorgeous pamphlet, a souvenir of the event
ENGLISH SPORTING GOSSIP.
Pointers Abont the Czarewitch and the
Young British Scullers.
nrr cable to the dispatch.!
London, September 23. CopyrightJ The
race for tbe Czarewitch is indncing a groat
amount of speculation. Tbe horse Davenport,
on hi3 forward running in a recent race against
first-class horses is being backed for largo sums
at 11 to 2 against him. Vasistas, a consistently
good performer. Is second favorite at 15 to 2
against him. Not much is being done as yet
with the race for tbe Cambridgeshire, which is
looked npon as of a Aery open character.
There is scarcely a point oi difference in price
between the first five favorites.
The impetus given to sculling by the Searle
and O'Connor race and to other matches since
arranged, has Induced Mr. Innes, the well
known writer on aquatics under the nom de
plume of Pegasus, to offer a series of prizes
for young scullers, with a view of ascertaining
whether tbere Is anything sufficiently promising
In England's rising talenttowarrantsupporting
lor champion sculling honors. So far tbe pros
pects are not encouraging. English sculling
has fallen to such a low ebb that it would take
a great deal more than Mr. Innes can do to
DPNALLY DEFEATS BECK.
.An Interesting Sprint Race Between Two
JohnMcNally, of Lawrenceville, and Edward
Beck, of Sbarpsburg, ran a 100-yard race at
Homewood Park, yesterday, for $100 a side.
There was a good attendance, and the betting
was heavy at $100 to 850 and 100 to SO on Mc
Naliy. The sporting editor of this paper ap
pointed E. C. McClelland referee.
The contestants started by report of pistol,
but before start was effected, McNally went
over the mark, and was put back a yard. It
was then that the odds dropped to $100 to $80 on
him. A good start was made, and McNally at
once passed Beck, winning easily by about
three yards. No time was taken.
