in 2:03% — The Free-for-AU
Trotting Won by The Abhott—
Results at Hawthorne, Sheeps
head Bay and Fort Erie.
NEW YORK, Sept. B.—Threatening
Weather somewhat interfered with the
attendance at the last day's racing at
the Empire City Trotting Club track.
Every one of the 5,000 people present
were rewarded for braving the prospect
for a poor day, as the sun came out,
and the best day's racing of the week
was on the card.
The opening event was the 12:10 pac
ing class for a purse of $5,000, and in
spite of the fact that Hal B. was con
sidered invincible, ten other starters
lined up for the word. The favorite
sold at $50 to $25 for the field. He
spread-eagled the field in both heats
The 2:10 trot brought out a high clas:,
field. Louise Mac got away first for
the opening heat, and won all the way,
with Gayton in close attendance. Gay
ton came back for the second heat, and
after the quarter found no particular
trouble in winning handily in 2.00 ; 4.
It was all Gayton in the third and de
There was strong betting in the 2:05
pace, with Anaconda favorite at $«>0
to $35 for the field. They came out for
the first heat, and the heat of the meet
ing was witnessed. Anaconda went to
tho front at the start, Lady of the
Manor second. Ryan Wilkes third.
They raced in this order to the last
turn, where Geers moved up with Lady
of the Manor. She responded nobly,
and in a neck and neck drive Anaconda
took the heat in 2:03*4, a new mark for
the colt pacers.
The colts got the word quickly for the
second heat. As they started Lady of
the Manor broke badly, and Anaconda
won the heat and race. Results:

AT SHEEPSHEAD BAY.
NEW FORK, Sept. S.—The feature of
the day at Sheepshead was the two
year-old race over the futurity course,
which attract.-d a field of high-class
youngsters. Gonfalon was made an
odds-on favorite, with Hindus a well
backed second choice. Neither was in
at the finish, however, as Sadduccee, at
10 to 1, and Kilmarnock, a promising
colt from Maddens stable, ran a sen
sational dead heat in fast time. The
purse was divided. Results:

FOUL PLAY. ,
Little Doubt That Frank Landis
LINCOLN (Cal.),' Sept. B.—There is
now no doubt that Frank Landis, the
young Lincoln merchant who was
found dead in the back room of his
store on August oth, met with foul
play. The case has been under inves
tigation by Pinkerton detectives, hired
by the citizens, and their findings point
unmistakably to murder.
Landis was killed by a 38-caliber bul
let, and the fact that his own pistol was
38-caliber and was found within six
feet of his body, lent color to the sui
cide theory. A 38-caliber bullet was
found in the stairway above the body,
and it was the opinion of the county
officers that Landis fired it from his
pistol to avert suspicion of suicide, re
loaded his weapon and discharged a
second bullet into his heart.
It has now been discovered that the
bullet found in the stairway could not
haVe been lired by Landis' revolver. It
belonged to a. cheaper weapon, such as
evidently used by a second party. A
lanii>. which is usually lighted in the
store at night, was seen burning at
11:30 on the evening of the murder, but
at 10:37 several people noticed that it
was extinguished. This was before
Landis entered the store. Two parties
have been found who heard a noise
like that of falling packing boxes in
the rear of the store at 10:10 that
evening. No clew to the murderer has

Indian Pete Shoots and Kills the
Son of a Prominent Rancher.
CARSON (Nev.), Sept. B.—An Indian
named "Pete" shot and killed the son
of a prominent rancher, Christopher
Dangberg, at Gardnerville yesterday.
Will Dangberg, 17 years old, heard a
quarrel going on in his father's kitchen
between the Chinese cook and Indian
Pete. The boy ordered the Indian out
of the house. As Pete turned to go he
shot Dangberg through the right eye
with a pistol, killing him instantly.
The Indian escaped, and a posse is
now after him.
Orders have been issued to capture
him alive if possible, but in case of
resistance to shoot him down.
Pete was drunk at the time of the
shooting. If the person who sold him
liquor is found he will probably be
lynched, as the excitement is intense.

THE MOTION GRANTED.
Miss Austin Can Examine Diaries
of the Late Jefferson Wilcoxson.
Hon. E. E. Gaddis, Superior Judge
of Yolo County, sitting instead of Judge
Johnson, yesterday heard arguments
on the motion made in the case of
Amanda P. Austin against the estate
of Jhe late Jefferson Wilcoxon, for an
order permitting the plaintiff to ex
amine the diaries kept by the deceased
in order to ascertain whether or not
entries were made relating to the al
leged arrangement whereby he intend
ed to remunerate plaintiff for caring
for him in his declining years.
Two weeks ago Judge Gaddis heard
evidence and arguments upon a mo
tion to allow the plaintiff or her attor
neys to examine copies of letters kept
and written by the deceased, and also
the diaries. An order was made per
mitting examination of the letters, but

STILL AT LIBERTY.
Napa Asylum Authorities Want
A number of years ago a man named
James Taylor was adjudged insane and
committed to the Napa Insane Asylum.
Before his incarceration he sent a
number of threatening letters to C.
McDonald and relatives, who then
lived at San Rafael, but who subse
quently came to this city.
A couple of years ago Taylor es
caped and sent more threatening let
ters, but was recaptured, and sin<-e
that time, so far as the public knew,
he had been in confinement.
Such, however, proved to have been
not the case, and yesterday Miss Mc-
Donald saw Taylor on the street and
had him pointed out to Officer Naghel.
Last evening the police authorities
communicated by telephone with the
Napa Asylum people, and learned that
Taylor made his second escape from
the institution on the 27th of Junt-,
and has ever since been at lib
erty. The asylum authorities requested
that Taylor be arrested and held, and it
is among the probabilities that he will
be rounded up to-day.
