tbe necessity of a gnard about tbe

Several weeks ago Mr. Myers traded
horses with a party from Pittston, wbo

between the two animals, but after

only received $3. Now the Pittston

evinced tbe desire to waylay the Scran,

ITS RECORD FOR A HALF MILE
It Had Made It in a Minute and It Was
Expected to Make a Mile in Two
Minutes Mr. Jermyn Says the
Death of the Animal Means a Loss
to Him of $100,000 The Trainer
Is Almost Crazed with Grief.
Frank Jertuyu, of this city, sustaiued
a seveie lose Monday nig lit through
tbe burning of a stable ut Medfotd, a
suburb of Boston, wbicb contained his
promising trotter, Ctnizo, which he
hud on Monday refused fS.i.OUO for.
Tbe dispatches received by Mr- Jer
rayn yesterday do not give the details
8 to tbe cause or the tire simply con
talning tbe announcement that tbe nu
imal was burned to death and that the
trainer, a young man namod Wilson.
was almost craz-d with grief over tne
The manager of the stables besought
Mr. Jermyn to telograpli Wilson thut
tie neia mm blameless rur tbe burning,
for it was feared that the young uiau's
reason would become dethroned
through brooding over the matter. He
bad been Caruzo's constant attendant
for two yearn and was mucb attached
to the animal.
TUHCIIASED TWO YEARS AOO.
The hore was purchased by .Mr.
,iermvn two year' ago as a yearling in
Kentucky for ." 000. Carazo's dam
was Happy Sluliuui, whose mother
produced JUasey Loo, bince ne De
cline owner cf the horse, Mr. Jermyn
baa given it the m st earful truiuing.
It developed wonderful speed and eh
durance, but nothing was noised
abroad of its wonderful performances.
Tbe intention was to astonish the
world when it made its debut on tbe
mce track. In private the horse had
made a half utile in a minute, and it
was confidently expected that it would
make a mile ou the track in two min
utes. Carazo was being prepared for ship
ment to Grand Kapids, Mich., to take
part in its nist race when the nre oo
curred that ended tbe career of the
noble animal. There was a small in
turunce on Ctirnzo, but not anything
liko enough to compensate Mr. Jermyn
for the treat loss he has sustained.
V UAT Jilt. JERMYN SAY'S.
"The death ot Carazo is not only a
loss to me hut l brruly believe it is a
tfreat loss to the turf sitid frank Jer
myn last evening when questioned
about the horse by a Ikibukk reporter.
"It was a really wonderful animal and
I am satisfied tbat its work would have
created the greatest furore in trotting
circles of any horse for years. 1 don't
believe its equal lives today. That
was the opinion of everyone wbo saw
119 performance on tbe track.
'I inn sure that within a week it
would have held all troting records
aud Scrautou would have had the dis
tinction of being tbe home of tbe king
of the tnrf. Its death means a loss of
$100,000 to me. I have telegraphed to
Wilson, the trainer, not to let this at
fair weigh heavily on bis mind for I
will have another horse like Carazo if
money can obtain him "

Although it was the Lackawanna

WORST TROUBLE IS OVER.
Wholesale Meat Dealers Believe They
Will Have no Further Trouble in
Supplying the Demand.
The outlook among the local whole,
sale und retail meat dealers was some
what brighter yesterday.
A visit to the'offl -es of the Scranton
aud Stowers Packing companies found
that each concern bus a supply on band
iquivalent to the demand. They nre
not receiving any shipments from Chi
cago; their orders, however, nre being
filled by firms in Kansas City and
Omaha. It takes two days louger for
the shipments to reach here, and it
also enthils more expense iu freight.
This makes the price of their products
deurer by from li to 3 cents per pound.
These bouses expect no trouble in sup
plying the dwnian !s from their trade.
Ti e wholesale fresh meat dealers are
not receiving any meat from Chicago.
Their orders are filled at Kansas City,
St. Louis, Hammond and Omaha, and
they are not worrying over tneir abil
ity to supply the demand from retail
butchers, Tbe wholesale men nre more
or less governed by the prices in the
New York and Philadelphia markets.
At the latter places the price of meat
per pound has advaucsd 2 to4cenls
per pound. The wholesaler bave
raised tbe prices an average of 3 cents
per pound while tbe retail butchers are
still keeping the old prioes.
Some of tbe smaller retail dealers
are not buying much meat, because
there is no profit iu it for them. This
is noticed more in tbe suburbs where
tbe butcher wagons make two or three
road trips a week. Tbe retail butchers
are scouring the surrounding country
for native beef; but tbe owners are
holding out for high prices.
The sentiment of tbe wholesalers is
to the effect that tbe worst trouble
for tbem is over and unless the strike
lasts some time and tbe tie-up be
comes general, there will be no further
trouble in meeting the demand.
