There has been more or less discussion
about the possibility of ono-rent postage
being accomplished under the present Ad
ministration, especially as It was advocated
hi the platform of the Hepubllcau party
adopted at Chicago. The matter has been
under consideration by Postmaster-General
Wanomakcr, and thcro Is an official an
nouncement that ha thinks It unwise to
press tho matter at present, because of the
need of Improved postal facilities rather
than cheaper postage. Kx-Postmoster-Gcneial
Frank Hotton, who Is now editor
of the Washington '(, lias been In Now
York for several dajs. Ho sold to mo to
day that such was Mr. Wauamaker's de
cision, and went on to say: "I think Mr,
Wanuraaker l in every way 60und In this
decision. Wo do not require one-ceut
postage. Tho people aio satisfied to
pay tbo present rate; but we do
need better aud mora expeditious service,
which will rcrpilie additional expendi
tures. If wo had one cent postage these
expenditures could not bo made without n
largo deficit being created, which would
have to be met by appioprlatlous, It Is
hard work now to get tho necessary appro
priations for tho servleo, ami It would lie
harder If the receipts were lessened by tbo
adoption of tho one-cent policy whllo
further expenditures were being mado to
Improve tho service. Ills better to Im

It wns estimated thai from 12,000 to
lfi.000 were In the Brooklyn Jockey
Club giounds yesteiday. Tho event of
the day, tho mueh-dlscusscd Brooklyn
handicap, about which everybody had
been talking for months, was tho fourth
cM'tit on the programme, mid the great
assemblage which had only permitted
stray bursts of enthusiasm to ovcrllow
from the enormous supply they hnd In
lcseiM", tine nwivy the lloodgales, nlid
the buy, of tongues and general air of
unrest showed that something opt of
the ordlnaiy was about to occur. The
withdrawal of Gorgo, Conncmara, Belja
B.. Nliwara and Marauder, left as
staitcis, Hanover, Term Colin, L'lk
wood, Prince HoVnl, Kxtle, Richmond
and Juggler. Tho Chicago stables'
champion, Terra Cotta, In bandages,
with McLaughlin In the Middle, was
first lo appear for n wnrmlug.iip gallop
and watches wero set ngolng as the
handsome chestnut, that many claim
should haVe won last year's Surbmbitn,
wns permitted to extend himself. Ho
covered tho quarter In 27 seconds, and
came down past tho stait at a slow gal
lop, both horse and rider receiving great
applausq. When McLntighlln stepped
on the cnles to weigh out ho was
hoi tilled to find thnt he weighed 125
pounds and stiuggllng against tho en
croachment of untitle had been for
nothing mid he begged Mr. Ilnukius to
pulFltpatilck up In his stead. The
only way McLaughlin could ride was
to declare live pounds overweight nnd
so It wns thnt McLaughlin rodo nt the
extreme ovcrucmiu. mo Dotting ring
was a scene of wild disorder before the
handicap. Prlnco Roynl wns the fnvor
ile nt odds of 8 to 5 ngulnsl, with Terra
Cott ft second choice nt It to 5 and Han
over third favorite at 2 to 1. These
quotation? tell tho lido of how the pen
ciders mado their cinch books. The
best odds against tho others wero 8 to 1
each, Kxlle and Klkwood; 10 to 1, Jug
gler, and 12 to I Richmond. A ynrn
Fngeryof "they'ioolt" caused n stam
pede fiom the ring, but ll wns only a
liieaknwnv with Hnnovcr and Prlnco
Royal well up In front, and Kxlle, tho
cause of Iho false sliut, cutting up
didos nt tho post.
At Inst all broke on nearly even terms;
blue, maroon, old gold, black, white,
scat let, red and yellow, and tho long
lino of spectators stretched twcnly-fivo
deep from the slnrl lo Iho stand, both
in tho loner nud outer fields, shout
with one volco: "They're olf I" The
stmt was almost perfect, and down the
straight they mine, with Hanover,
Piinco Royal, Kxlle, Terra Cotln nnd
Juggler almost abreast, Klkwood and
Richmond behind under a pull. At the
furinng polo MeCaithy -sent the light
weighted Juggler out to kill or bo
killed, and, as ho challenged Hanover
and inn heail aim head past the stand,
the crowd cheeied enthusiastically.
Juggler had his. head In fiont of Han
over at Uiq stjind and Hnnovcr led
Prince Roynl by n neck. Tcrrn Cotln
eamo next, a length nwny, a neck ho
lme Kxlle, who led Elkwood and Rich
mond by two lengths. Tlmo for the
first quaiter, twenty-live seconds. At
the quarter-pole, or half a mllo from
(ho stmt, which wns Hindu In fifty
second', Juggler wns the lender by
hnlf n length, Hnnovcr second,
three lengths before Terra Cotta,
half a length bcfoie Kxlle, a hnlf
beforo Richmond and Klkwood last
Mait tiding him vigorously. In tho
urn lo tho half Hanover stopped per
ceptibly, Prince Rnyal nnd Exile both
passing him, and tho cry, "Hanover's
broken down," was heard ou all sides.
Both Gnirlson nnd Hnmilton now began
driving, and Prince Royal and Kxlle
cioscu up. I'nssing me nan inoy nau
i educed Juggler's lead to three-quarters
of a length, aud in the middle of thu
tipper ttiin. first Prlnco Royal and then
Kxllo headed him. McLaughlin now
set sail with Terra Cotta, nnd Into tho
Btrctch thev cnino with Prlnco Rovnl In
Iho van, and Kxlle only half a length
nwny. Juggler wns third, half length
behind Kxlle, nnd Term Cotta and
Hanover wero on even terms. Grad
ually Kxlle wore tho leader, nnd nt tho
furlong post tho raco was over, Kxllo
coming nwny nnd winning In grent
style, by two lengths, In 2:07, half a
second slower than tho-best on ic,cord.
Prince Roynl enptured tho placo with
ease, Tctra Cotta finishing third, six
lengths nwny, three lengths beforo
Elkwood, who enrno very fnst In tho
fctretch, Juggler, Hnnovcr nnd Rich

Commissioner Webb took tho stunt and
delivered a lengthy lecturo, dwelling upon
tbo obnoxious phases of tbo place. Mr.

In order to get n license, mado a bill nt sale
to bis father. This time-It was absolutely
refused. AVo thought wo had n right to
close a place that had such n reputation.
Then Mr. Mcbclcr presented himself ns tho
successor of tho Solaris. Ho produced let
ters as to bis good chaiacter. Ho prom
ised to take down tbc namo of tho place, to
have nono of tho Solaris 'about tho place.
Wo found, however, that tho name had not
been taken down, ami that ouo of tho So
laris was still about tho place."
Judge Johnston, who appeared for tbo
defendant, asked whether bo did not know
that the Initials bad been taken fiom tho
Mr. Webb replied that he did not know It

permission to kcop one of tho Solaris about

Newark's aristocratic people havo got
Something to talk about now which will

Into Secretary of State, Is soon to becomo
tbowlfoof Mri Winnie firey, tho divorced

To sav that this rumor created a lively
breeze In upper tendom is to put It very
mildly Indeed. Many people wero couildout
Miss t'rellimhuyscn was ere long to becomo
tho wife of Mr. A. Pennington Vliltehcail(
sr., who had lived In the houso adjoining
the Frcllngliuysen mansion for jcars and
had loug been tho pcrsonlilcatfou of devo
tion to her. Mr. Whitehead Is n widower
with scvaral grqwn-up children, and It was
thought bis marrlago to Miss Krcllng
huj sen was only a matter of tlmo.
Bat when a fow days ago U was nolstd
about as coining from reliable authority
that Miss Vrcllughujsan was to become tlio
wife of Mr, Uroy, well known In this city,
people, after tbo first moment of hi
crcdulltyi bethought themselves that some
jears ago both Miss Krollnghuysen and .Mr.
Urey bad evinced a llklne for ono another,
aud that the attachment was uot a hastily
formed one.Ncw'york World.
