beat and the Ashland money favored its
favorite. There was loud talking and
wild confusion until the judges announced
that Ashland had won the heat when the
crowd cheered wildly in approval. One
loud mouthed character made the usual
show of himself because ho or his father
had lost a half dollar on Young. He had
been out after a drink when the heat was
finished but was positive Young should
have been declared tho winner. He had
something to say about Jessie Gaines not
being on the track, but no one could pre
vent the fact that she was sick and her
absence did not prevent the others from
showing speed if they had it and no more
in favor of one than another as far as the
race was concerned.
The mutuals for tho second heat showed
Ashland the favorite with a strong field.
There was unusual activity in the busi
ness. At tho word Conde went ahead to the
quarter with Ashland and Wal
ter E. a half length behind. On
tho back the three mado a

lengths trailing. At the half Ashland
moved up gradually making more certain

Walter E. crowded him up the home
stretch, Ashland coming in a neck winner.
It was claimed that the driver of Walter
E, Bob Stewart, was not trying to win.
This came from some of his backers and
the judges put up R. Payne, who had
driven him in many races.
The mutuals for the third showed Ash
land the favorite but the field was made
strong by the fact that Walter E was in

Yesterday being Wichita day, all the
leading business establishments closed
doors. Onlya few of the less important
'job lot" concerns denied employes and
thomselves a chance to see the great fair.
The firm of Stewart Bros, not only shut

with ticket?, calling for over eighty
tickets. Some others acted similarly.
The total number of tickets sold at the

THE LEADING FEATURE.
The leading race of the day was the race
in the 2:20 trot for a 1,000 purse. Tho
mutuals showed no one wanting to bet
except on Ashland Wilkes nnd Joe Young
for positions. There was no favorite so
much of a favorite as to secure any money
against the field. The Joe Young money
seemed to be on baud in abundance and
aside from tho mutuals there were many
interesting bets mado on the side. In fact
the mutuals accommodated tho small fry
mostly. It i5 a conservative estimate to
say that $".000 changed hands on tho race
between the two horses alone. Thero was
clever pools ou Conde and Walter E also
but no big money on the side. The result
was that man- were financially interested
in the race and wcro in fact intensely
interested. It was quite sure that the
race was for blood and that the owners of
Ashland and Young were looking at each
other seldom, but when they did it was
only a sharp glance. Tho feeling between
the two men was not a side show to tlie
spirit of the mob. Everything was intensi
fied and made lively. The fiuaucinllv
interested got out on the track in front of
tho grand stand and surged from one side
to the other, scarcely giving the horses a
chnnce to get through. Tho police seemed
powerless nnd tlie mob had its way about
it, delaying everything nnd making things
at times decidedly unpleasant.

OimUAUV OF KBV. J. SEVEY.
To the eaitor or the Envrle-
J. C. Sevey was born in the state of New
Yoik, December 13, 1S2S. He died at Mt.
Hope. Kan., September 80, lSlK). His
funeral wils one of the largest that ever
occured in Mt. Hope. Rev. Fastus Foster
of the Congregational church read the
scripture. Rev. G. W. Irwin of the M. E.
church, made the opening "orayer. Elder J.
M. Monroe of the Christian church, con
ducted the exercises and gave a biographi
cal sketch of the deceased. Chancellor
Everest preached the sermon and Rev.
Yick of the South M. E. church, made the
closing prayer. The choirs of the Mt,
Hopo and Andale Christian churches
furnished the music.
In 1S3S the parents of J. C. Sevey moved
to Illinois, where they lived eighteen years.
In lb4S, at tho age of twenty he moved to
Iowa, where the family were engaged in
farminc and stock raisine. Here they re
mained tweuty-eicht years.
In ls76 they went to Stafford county and
in 1SS1 to Sedgwick county, and have lived
at Mt. Hope cversince. In lSfiO lie enlisted
in the Thirteenth Iowa regiment and
served in the army of the Cumberland un
der General Thomas. He was in the bat
tles of Nashville and Kingston. Upon the
surrender of Goldbow, N. C , Mr. Survey
was the first man to enter the city.
For thirty years he has been a minister
in the Christian church. Since moving to
Kansas his preaching has been mostly in
Stafford, Reno and Sedgwick counties.
Mt. Hope for six years enjoyed his pastoral
ministrations. Two sons and two daugh
ters were awaiting him on the other shore.
One son and one daughter sarvive him.
His blind widow has the sympathy of a
host of friends. Elder Sevey was greatlv
beloved by all who knew him and will
long be missed by them.

haps." Barney Ferguson, as McCarthy,
is the same old McCarthy, whose mishaps
are indescribably funny and whose every
move make thoe laugh who never laughed
