with the race won by Zatnora the other
day at New Orleans. She was ridden
by aliUle rnite of a white boy, and it

going down the back-stretch, but, on
commencing the run for home, was up
in the ruck, while some of the leaders
were falling back, beaten. Here tho
tiny rider lost his whip, and realizing

some of tho already beaten jocks:
"Boys, give her a few belts behind,"
which waspromotly done, when Zamora
airly flew from the punishment down
tho stretch, winning the best short race.

Dear Sin: T am In receipt of your letter of

tbe Governors of Illinois Iowa. Nebraska.
Colorado and Kansas In Issuing a proclama
tion quarantining thoso several states
-against tho Introduction of cattle from the
Infected districts of other Stales.- I fully
appreciate the Importance of such a move
ment, and would join you if I were inveted
with tbe power. No law exists In this State
giving the r.orrnwr the right to issue such a
Proclamation. It is an omission which will
a remedied In the future. Tbe stock grow
ers or this State are too largely interested In
that industry to suffer future legislation to
longer overlook tbe enactment ot such laws
as will more securely protect that Important
part of their property rights.
Very truly yours, Thos. T. CnrxTEXDEjr.

Sax Fkancisco, 31ay 3. The railroad
till in the Legislature known as tbe "Barry'
bill, and which, in the largest measure, cov
ens! the object for which the extra session
was called, was. In an amended form, passed
by the Senate by a unanimous vote. Under
the bill as passed by the Assembly, where It
originated, the railway companies would nave
forfeited their right to operate within the
State, first, IX they suffered dlcrimlnatlons
in freight over their roads; second. If they
failed to keep track and structures In efficient
repair; third, If they accepted charters from
any other Government. State or sovereignty ;
lourtli. if they failed to comply with the
rare and freight schedules fixed by the Rail
road Commissioner. In its amended, form
the first and third conditions arc rendered
nngatory. the special contract system re
mains intact and the forfeiture of railroad
charters Is placed beyond State laws. At
tbe present moment the relations of railway
companies to the State Government are as
before the call of the extra session. It is
now clearly established that no radical anti
railroad measure can pass the Senate. An
early adjournment is quite possible.

Fltigerald braced up In the early part
of the afternoon, . and for a couple of
hours maintained his lead. He fell off
again, however, about 4 p. m., and acted
very groggy. After this Fitzgerald and
Eoweil bad frequent spurU, and oftea
passed one another. The ex-AIdcrmaa
had to take frequent rests doting theso
spurts, and It looked as though he was
running short of breath. Rowell stock
to the track without Intermission daring
tbe afternoon. Charley Mitchell, tho
pugilist, was In his hut and showed great
interest in his countryman. He frequent
ly patted Rowel! on the back and whis
pered words ot encouragement.
At 1:35 the tired Elson stopped at tbo
scorer's jtand for a couple ot minutes,
resting. Little Vint came along and en
couraged him to start again. Panchot
and Herty frequently went off the back
for rests. Tbe latter held to tbe track
notwithstanding he was suffering paLss
that would discourage any but an ex
tremely plucky man. Many thought he
would withdraw after making 525 miles,
but he was determined to stay until tho
end.
Noremac went nnder his roof for a Ions'
stay In thu afternoon. His right kg had
not held out so well as his friends had
hoped. Little Vint walked laboriously
around tbe track during tbe afternoon.
His right leg also troubled him.
At 5 p. m. there were between 5,000 akd
5,000 people In the garden. Fitzgerald
made bis COOth mile at 5 h., SO mln. and
10 sec, and It was greeted with the great
est enthusiasm. Cheer after cheer rent
the air. Caps and hats were flung; Into
tbe air and handkerchiefs were waved by
many people. Fitzgerald was then four
miles and three laps ahead of Rowell. He
took tbe uproar very coolly. He finished
bisCOlst mile before retiring. He bad
only been out of sight six minutes when
Rowell pushed out on the track. Fitz
gerald heard of this and Immediately
went after tbe Englishman. Thu)
caused another outburst ot cheers.
When Hazael made his previous record
of GOO miles In six days be completed bis
task about 9:30 o'clock In the evening.
Fitzgerald beat the record for that dis
tance by over four hours. Noremac was
adding miles to bis score daring the af
ternoon. It was said that daring tbe
earlv hours ot tbe morolns Fltarerald
had accused his backer, Tom Davis, of
poisoning him. Davis and Smith, tbs
trainer, however, paid but little attention
to this, knowing that It came from a pain
full r excited man.
During the evening Fitzgerald was pre
sented with a sliver goblet lined with
gold. He carried this to Rowell but be
paid little attention to the gift. Rowell
completed bis six hundredth mile at 6:53,
beating Hazel's record by two hours,
eighteen minutes and thirty-five seconds.
Peter Duryea, Rowell's backer, jrave up
the contest at seven o'clock. He at
tributed Rowell's defeat to a badly
sprained left ankle, from which his man
had been suffering two days, and wanted
to make another match with Fitzgerald.
He will let Fitzgerald name tbe time,
the amount to be over $5,000 aside. Two
large floral emblems were presented
Fitzgerald during the evening. They
were borne In front of him
around the track, Fitzgerald fol
lowing and warlnz the flag ot x.rin.
During the evening tbe garden was
packed, as on Sunday jig'cL. Fitzgerald
remained on the track and was cheered
Incessantly. Rowelt retired at 7:11,
but afterwards came out and was loudly
applauded. He then retired again and
bad his ankle bathed. It was swollen
to nearly double its natural size and
was black and blue. He appeared
asaln on the track, but did not
lira d perceptibly. Noremac and Fitzgerald
Joined him and they tramped around the
ellipse at a rapid race. The house rose
at them as they were joined by Panchot.
Fitzgerald hanaeaJoweu nis insn nag,
which the latter took courteously. Fitz
gerald caught up the American flag and
another lap was made. Tbe men then
pulled up to the scorer's stand and shook
hands. Three cheers were civen for
Fitzgerald and three for Rowell.
The tyedestrians then went to
their huts, and at 8:4o p. m.
the six-day race of 18i ended.
Preparations are made In Long Islanc
City for a reception to Fitzgerald. He
will be received by the 5Iayor and Alder
men and tendered tbe freedom of the city.
