Commissioner Colman has discovered a
condition of affairs lu tho Department of

that tho laboratory fund was nearly ex
hausted, In oidor to avoid making a de
ficiency, ho was compollod to furlough
sovcral employes until tho ond of tho fhcal
year without pay. Now it appears that
several othor specific appropriations are in

minor blanches of work must bo tempor
arily suspended, Tho statistical division
suffers tho loss ot all Its Stato agents, and

Yesterday was tho most successful opou
ing day iu point of attendance that tho Na
tional Jockey Club has ovor iiad, Tho largo
grand stand was nearly filled, tho ladles ho
lug iu tho mojoilty. Tho hotting lawu and
quarter-stretch wore crowdod, and up tho
track, ns far as tho uppor turn, men stood
two aud threo deop, at tho outsido fonco.
Tho Infield fence was niso llnod with car
riages of all sotts nnd descriptions, from tho
handsomo four-in-hand drag to tho dilapi
dated onc-horso shay, A number of ladies
and gentlemen roit 0 out 011 horseback, and
ono young blood iu trying to show off his
horsemanship was landed on his head on
the turf, much to tho amusement of thoso
In tho grand stand. There woro several
very tedious waits that should not occur
again, becauso dragging out tho programme
mars tho pleasure of tho occasion.
Every ono known in society was thoro,
nnd many who woio not known.
As tho boys began to call Tun Omtic
on tho grand stand within forty ntimitos
after tho fiist race, containing an account
of tho race, Commissioner West eald:
"There's entcrpriso for you." Honor3 woro
pictty ovculy divided. 'Tho favorltos won
two and tho outsiders threo of tho Ilvo
races. Tin: Critic's tips woro hi good as
nny of tho professional tipsters. Thoso men
aio a study, audits as much a matter of
professional pride with them as it Is money
to givo tho best tips. Tho Goodwin
Brothois do not clvo daily tips, Thoy aro
Englishmen, nnd tho love for racing was
born In them, Thoy aro tho editors of
d'ecifii In' Turf Guttle, and havo a cortnln
numbor of subscribers to whom thoy give
weekly tips on ovory raco ruu In tho world.
Jack Shecuan of 'Jack's tips'' famo U
niotty well known. Ho was not vory
lucky yesterday, Two othors woro on
hand, Goodrich and Viator, Tho latter wis
moro successful than any ono clso, Tho
favorite In tho first raco won handily,
with Miss Goodrich second. Iu tho
second ovent, Wlckham was Jostled out of
hUstrldo near tho first furlong, nnd was
last at tho elx-elghtlis pole, but camo so
fust afterward that ho was boaton nut only
a ucrk by Mcntuiaro for second placo, tho
favoiite, Tccumseb, wluulug. It was tho
general verdict of tho liorsomen aftor tho
raco, that If Wlckham bad not boon Inter
fered with ho would havo won it. Ho U
h good ono to keep you: eyo on, Tho third
event was n "iluko," Half tho horaoi woro
beaten bv a preliminary raco, Iu which,
after a driving finish, tho gr. h. Joo Sholby
Won, Tho boll was rung repoatodly. but
tho "jocks" scorned Wild nnd did not hoar.
When they were finally started, tho favor
ite, Queen lather, was nearly loft nt tho
post. Windeall and Duko of Westmoreland
had tho men to themselves until tho stretch
was reached, when Quoon Esthor got out of
tho tuck, ahd coming very fast made tho
finish closo and exciting between Wind
fall, Mordaunt and Esther, thoy fin
ishing half a length apart In tho ordor
i.amtd, After tho fourth raco a woll-kuowu
gentleman said, "f wish Burch would not
tart Spraguo In another race; I'm afraid to
back him and equally afraid to bet ngaiust
him." When tho Colonel is In good eru
dition, nnd feds liko running, ho can bsat
most nnythlng In tho shnpo of horsollush.
These were tho conditions yestorday ,and tho
small number who nlways hick
him realized .$'.'!) for tlioir five, and woro
consequently happy. Tho Western Koiorvo
mado Hatcf tho favorite, though Bosio had
many fi lends. Sho seemed unablo to ex
tend herself. lVircwcll surprised ovoryono
by his running. Tho last raco looked liko
a sure thing for MnoMahon, but liko intny
Biiro things, was no good. Daly's old

should say so. vvo intend to givo tho loaguo
all tho war they want. I was against tho
National agreement from tho start, nnd I'm
glad its gono iip. Thoy havo always con
sidered Baltimore tho weakest factor In tho
matter, becauso thoy thought I had no
money to hack me. But I'll fool them, and
I don't mind telling you that next year tho
Baltimore Club will bo controlled by a stock
company. Two of tho largest oystor-pack-Ing
houses in Baltimore nro backing mo in
this matter, and if tho lcaguo wants to put
a dub in our city, lot them, Tho action of

RELICS OF BARDAKISM THAT
OUGHT TO COME DOWN.'
What Colonol Hockwoll Hna to Say
on tho Subjoct Douuty and Safoty
Both Domnud Tholr Removal Moro
Light nnd Watclimon Also Noodotl.
Colouol Rockwell, tho Commissioner of
Public Buildings and Grounds, was asked
to-dny whothor tho high fences around tho
public reservations, tho insuillclont Illumi
nation and tho Inadequate forcoof watch
men lu tbo parks do not tond to render such
crimes as that comniltttcd in I.afiiyctto
Park last night easy, and rendor tho reser
Colonel Rockwoll replied that tho ciso
could not bo stated so strongly. Such
crimes woro very iufrcqtioiit In tho purks,
circles aud squares of tiio city, much lesi
frequent than 011 tho public stroots. Ho
always regarded tho high fonccs as detri
mental to tho preservation of order and
prevention of crl mo In tho parks. Whatever
rendors tho reservation dilllciilt of accois
of coursoaflbrds protcctlou toovll-dliposod
persons rontemplatlng violations of law
within tlioir limits and ineroa433 their
loneliness. Ho favors tho removal of nil
tho high fences, and has mado ovorv ell'ort
to nttaln this object. It was decided, how
ever, by his superiors that a chuso In an
old appropriation bill, providing that nn
portion of tbo monoy appropriated should
bo used in tho removal of lion fences, err
rlcd with It an implied Injunction against
thorcmovnl of any of thoso foncos without
tho permission of Congress.
Colonel Rockwoll sees no argumont (u
favor of tho high fences, while ho recog
nizes many arguments against them. Thoy
were erected originally for throo rowns
first, because thoy wore regarded as or.ua
mental; second, becauso thoy protcctod tho
parks fjpni trespass by vagrant animals,
and third, becauso they kopt people, adults
nnd children, fiom walking on tho grass.
All theso reasons have, in his opinion, dis
appeared. Tho high fences aio no longer
thought to bo ornamental; tho Pound
master has n Horded protection from stray
animals, and tho pcoplo havo learned not
to deface public property and trespass on
Ho advocates tho removal of all high
fences aud tho substitution ofsimplo cop
ings, except on tho busiest streets, wlioro
posts and chain fences nro desirable.
Colonel Rockwell urged Congress to per
mit him to icinnvo tho fences around tho
triangles on both sides of Pennsylvania
avenue, near Thirteenth street, and also
around Washington Circle. In tho latter
caEo permission was givon and tho work Is
in progress. Concerning tho illumination of
tho parks, Colonel Rockwoll says it is about
as good as tho Illumination of tho public
streets. Ho Is not suro that nny electric
light system yet introduced would ho more
oiiectuai, ns tho dense foliago rondon tho
black shadows of tho olcctrlc-llght very in
toDEO. Tiio only means at hl3 command
for Impiovlug tho condition of alfalrs 13 tho
gradual Increase of tho number of lamps,
and this is being annually accomplished.
In reference to tho watchmou ho says tho
foico is entirely inadequate, but as largo ns
Congress was willing to appropriate for. In
Lafayette park thoro Is but ono watchman
during tho day tlmo and uono nt uight.
Tho police, however, oxtond as much pin
tcctiou to tho park as i3 consistent with
their other duties, and pas3 through nt in
tervals of about two houM during the
night. Colonel Rockwell has favored tho
employment of n night watchman at each
prominent reservation, but uudor prosont
appropriations this can only bo dono for
short periods just aftor extensive planting,
or when special complaints nro mado, or
disorderly assemblages hold in tho park.
