Elberon, Sept. 18, 9 a. m.— (Ofllcial.)-At
the examination at 8:30 this morning the tenis
perature9B, pulse 102, respiration 18. There was
no perceptible febrile rise during the night,
his pulse ranging from 102 to 112. The cough
was less troublesome than on previous nights,
and the expectoration was unchanged. He is
able to take the nourishment and stimulants
required without gastric disturbance, nor has
there been evidence of mental aberration dur
ing the night.
The Wound Looking Better.
Elberon, Sept. 18, 10:15 a. m.— (Unoffi
cial).—Dr. Hamilton in conversation with a
representative of the Associated Press said,
that while the morning bulletin is not raae
euring to a decided degree there is reason to
feel slightly encouraged over the present con
dition. At the morning dressing Gen.
Swaim says the discharge from the wound
is more healthy in appearance and the wound
Elberon, Sept. 18, 1 p. m.— (Unofficial)—
There has been no indications thus far to war
rant an opinion that there will be a,recur
rence of rigors to-day. The President has had
a very comfortable day thus far. This is not
construed by the attending surgeons as a
. ground for recurrence and those who are con
stantly with the patient do not venture to pre
dict that there will be no further complica
tions. In fact they intimate there is great
probability of further developments. At this
hour the temperature is rising.
Elberon, Sept. 18,1:30 p.m.— (Unofficial.)
The president's pulee at this hour is 120 and
the temperature 100. Dr. Boynton considers
these figures as a favorable indication, inas
much as the high temperature shows that the
patient has considerable vitality. Dr. Boynton
feels better about the situation, but is still
anxious and expects a recurrence of un favor
able symptoms sooner or later.
A Quiet Day.
Elbero.v, Sept. 18, 6 p. m.— (Official.)— The
president, though quite weak, has passed a
very quiet day. There has been no recurreuce
of the chill nor mental disturbance. At 9a.
m. a slight febrile rise took place, and began
to subside at 11, at which time the temperature
was 100, pulse 116 and respiration 20. There
has been no increase of the expectoration. At
the evening examination at 5:30, the tempera
ture was 98.4, pulse 102, respiration 20.

A Slight Chill.
Elbero>", Sept. 18, 8 p. m. — Attorney Gen.
eral MacVeagh has ju6t returned frem Frank
ly n's cottage. He says while he did not see
tither attending surgeons he understood the
president had a slight chill which lasted about
Elberon, Sept. 18.— At this hour (10:20 p.
m.) the president is resting quietly and is rest
ing more comfortable. His pulse is 122 and
temperature somewhat above normal. There
is no improvement in his general condition,
and grave apprehensions prevail.
Elberon, Sept. 18, 1:15 a. m.— The attend
ing eurgeons retired before midnight,
at which time everything ap
peared quiet about the president's
quarters. At this hour there is no one to be
seen about the neighborhood, excepting the
guard on duty, who 6ays since the cottage was
closed nothing has occurred in the hoase to
indicate that there has been any recurrence of
MacFeagh to Lowell.
Elberon, Sept. 18.— The following was
sent to-night: Lowell, London— The presi
dent passed a comparatively quiet and com
fortable day, bnt this evening he had another
chill, of less duration than that of yesterday,
but sufficient to increase the very great anx
iety already existing. He has also been grow
ing slowly weaker, and his condition excites
the gravest apprehension.
Review of the Day.
Long Branch, N. J., Sept. 18.— The presi
dent' 6 condition at the morning dressing was
comparatively favorable, but the more cau
tious did not entertain a sanguine opinion
that he was safely beyond the effects of yes
terday's rigor. The morning passed very
comfortably and Gen. Swaim went so far as to
express the opinion that the president was
having the most favorable Sunday which he
had passed for 6everal weeks. In
formation was obtained from one of
the attending surgeons to the effect that the
president was having a reasonably comforta
ble day, and the indications warranted the
opinion that no complications need be imme
diately apprehended. At midday Dr. Boynton
said he felt rather more encouraged by the
rise in temperature, which had reached 100, as
it was conclusive evidence the patient had con
siderable vitality left, and would appear to in
dicate a reaction from the depression caused
by yesterday's disturbances. His cough is un
improved, and I think as he gains strength, it
will become a 6 annoying as heretofore. There
early this morning that a rigor would occur,
and in order to obviate its development the
attending surgeons ordered applications cf
hot cloths, which proved a successful treat
ment. There were indications of a cooling of
tbe extremities, but hot applications brought
an increite of temperature, and the coolness
gradually wore 'away without producing a
chill. Had a sign occurred this morning it
would, it is thought, been a very serious one
as he was extremely enfeebled.
Dr. Hamilton went home to-night and will
return on Tuesday. Col . Carbin also left for
With the exception of the renewed efforts
which have been enlarged to keep the temper
ature from falliug below the normal range
the day passed without any event of an extra

ble condition of the patint noted m the even
ing bulletin, in less than an hour after its is.
suance another rieor occurred, lasting about
ten minutes. In comparison with the one
yesterday it was considered light, though
as Dr. Bliss remarked to-night, it was severe
enough. Dr. Boynton said to-night, com
pared with yesterday, there is a 6light im
provement. The low pulse and temperature,
sound sleep and freedom from cough and ex
pectoration, were indications of a
VERT LOW STATE OF VITALITY,
and cannot be considered favorable symptoms.
If he grows stronger, there will
be a rise in pulse and temperature, and his
cough and expectoration will return. About
11 o"clock there was a rise in temperature and
his pulse reached 120. To-night, at about 6
o'clock, he had a chill lasting about ten min
utes, his pulse reaching 140. It is now 123.
What do you think causes the chills?
It is possible they are merely a reflex of his
low state of vitality, but in all probability
they are the the result of a suppuration pro
cess going on in some part of the body.
What is the nature of the abscess on the
lung? T .
It is what we call a secondary abscess. It
occurs in the course of blood poisoning, or
rather as a complication of that. It begins as
lobular congestion. Each lobule of the lung
is aboat the size of a pin's head. A number
of these lobules become congested and after a
time suppurate and form as many small ab
scesses. By and by this congestion extends to
the surrounding lobules, which in turn sup
purate, forming other email abscesses. If he
lives long enough these minute abscesses
open into each other forming pus sacs
about the 6ize of a marble or hen's egg. That
portion of the lung containing the abscesses
become consolidated, or hepattzed. The por
tion of his right lung reachißgup to the sixth
rib is now consolidated. For several weeks
he has made satisfactory improvement, but in
each instance it has been followed by a re
lapse, which left him on a
LOWER PLANE OF VITALITT
than before. This feature of his case is pe
culiar to most cases of chronic pynmla. He
has a wonderful constitution, but it is doubt
ful if it is sufficient to carry him on to re
At ten to-night Secretaries Windom, Hunt,
Kirkwood, Attorney General MacVeagh and
Assistant Secretary of State Hill.called at Pri
vate Secretary Brown's cottage to ascertain
the facts regarding the president's condition.
Dr. Bliss said tbe chill this evening was of
about ten minutes duration and wi6 what
might be called quite a chill. He ie suffering
considerably from its effects. No vomiting
occurred and he experienced a reaction imme
diately after rigor subsided by the apparance
of fever. When asked the cause for a recur
rence of the rigor the doctor said it may be
due to local causes, but if so, they are not
manifested. I think the recurrence is due to
ENFEEBLED CONDITION OF THK FLUIDS.
Thi6 together with the local sorets are suf
ficient to produce a chill. It is evident he has
not repaired any during the pa 8 * twenty-four
hours, but has merely held his
own. Continuing Dr. Blus said
th ! president has taken nourishment
as usual during the day. He was cheerful and
bright during the afternoon. With the ex
ceptiou of milk punch about twenty minutes
before the chill, no lood had been given. Two
and one-half ounces of defi^rated beef blood
hud been administered by enemata during the
morning, and about thn p ounces will be ad
ministered during the night. It is
not probable that another chill will
occur during the night. The dullness of the
lung has uot extended. His coughing has
been very slight during the day and was men
tioned by Mrs. Garfleld as haviDg been less
than yesterday. Coughing was renewed with
the chill. No repair of the wound
had occurred for three or four
days and no healthy granulation
are visible. Three weeks ago the cavity of the
wound would hold two and one-half ounces of
water, while at present it holds an ounce,
showing it has become considerably smaller.
The stomach has not shown signs of disturb
ance. During the day the usual quantity of
stimulants have been administered.
In the opinion of Dr. Bliss there was a cav
ity pus in the lungs. The president is no bet
ter to-night than last night. Ido not consid
er him any worse. There was no aberrations
of hiß mind during the febrile rise, at which
time it generally occurs. He takes the same
notice of his condition as he has all along and
he thoroughly understands it. During the
prevalence of tbe chill his pulse reached 134.
If these signs keep up from day to day they
WEAR HIM OUT.
To prevent a chill this evening every pos
sible attempt was made and the chill was
modified to a certain extent by the efforts. It
is reasonable to expect some rigor disturbance
during every twenty- four hours. The presi
dent said to-day he felt very tired.
The reporter said to Dr. Bliss, the president
has had an exceedingly hard time.
It has been a fearful fight, and you on the
outside have no idea of it.
During the course of further conversation
Dr. Bliss admitted the situation was very
critical. He said there was still a chance for
his recovery, and he is entitled to the chance.
During the afternoon Gen. Grant paid his
dally visit to Franklyn cottage for the
purpose of ascertaining the condition of the

A Catholic Sentiment.
New York, Sept. 18.— The veterans of the
papal army, who served during the reign of
Pius IX, attended anniversary mass this morn
ing in the cathedral. At a dinner which fol
lowed one sentiment given was, "The Presi
dent of the United States: May he live to fill
tue term for which his countrymen elected
him, and to long wear the honors which his
sterling qualities and services to our csmmon
country have resulted to him."
The "Tribune*" Report,
New York, Sept. 18.— The Tribune's Long

been in better spirits, seeming to be in sympa

under the iifluence of the sun. At the
closing of the president's cottage the attend
ants were looking for a quiet night, as the
president has almost always slept for some
time after a •hill has occured. Hie
cough has been also less troublesome
through the day and evening. There is
anxiety, nevertheless, over the fact that there
is no gain of strength. Up to the time that
the evening bulletin was issued, there
was much satisfaction felt both by
surgeoDß and attendants, because a chill had
been avoided. The subsequent slight chill
destroyed this feeling in a great measure, and
the night closed with renewed anxiety arising
from fear that this tendency towards chills
may develop more strongly to-morrow.
Patriotism vs. Partisanship.
OHIO DEMOCRATIC COMMITTEE.
Columbus, 0., Sept. 18.— The following
correspondence made public to-day explains
itself: "Columbus, 0., Sept. 18.— To Geo. K.

ST. PAUL, MONDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 19, 1881.
distinguished speakers of the Republican par
ty have been announced for opening the cam
paign on the 20th inst. The Democratic
committee has been ready to
open the coming spring campaign,
but in the condition and critical illness of the
president, we have thought that patriotism
and sorrow in the presence of that awful
calamity to our country, demanded that par
tisanlsm should be silent The tidings each
day from the great sufferer grow gloomier,
and indicate that death alone will end the
tragedy. In view of the said condition of
affairs, we wish to suggest to you that
we are willing to avoid all discussion
that will lead to bitterness, and
out of respect to the president, this being his
native state, if you will consent, the execu
tive committee will not announce any meet
ings, provided you will withdraw your ap
pointments. However, if you do not care to
do this, a sense of duty compels us to say
that we do not feel like opening the campaign
while President Garfieid lies at the point of
death. Tours, Ac,
Clark Irvine, Chairman.
Geo. B. O. Key, Secretary.
Columbus, 0., Sept. 18.— Mr. Clark Irvine,
chairman of the Democratic 6tate executive
committee— Dear sir: Tour favor of this day
has been received. In reply I will say that this
committee, before it announced the opening
of Its campaign for the 17th inst., and not for
the 20th, as stated in your letter, determined
that a fair, honest and candid presentation of
the principles of the Republi
can party would be neither improp
er nor unpatriotic. Those principles
President Garfield loved and advocated with
all his great power. From his life long and
magnificent record all know that their triumph
is most earnestly wished for by him. Whether
in the will of providence President Garfleld
lives or die 6, it is the sacred duty of the Re
publicans to use all proper means to maintain
these principles. President Garfield, whtn a sol
dier for the Union, never faltered because an
eminent and useful commander fell on the
field of battle. If Garfield's voice could be
heard he would bid his old comrades, "Do
not abandon principles because I 6uffer." In
contending for his and their principles the
Republicans will follow his example and obey
his command. Whether it is proper at this
time to advocate the principles which the presi
dent always believed to be injurious to the
country is a question for your committee to
determine for itself. In conclusion let me as
sure you that no one can feel greater sorrow
over the critical condition of President Gar
field than those who stood by him and vindi
cated his honor and good name from ail at
tack less than one year ago. Tours truly,

Last evening Commodore N. W. Kittson's
b. R Yon Arnim, 6 years, by Bentic«l, record
2:22, was Bhipped to New Tork city for the
purpose of contesting, October 4th, over the
gentlemen's driving association course, Mor
isiana, in the stallion stakes race, $200 en
trance, association to add $5,000, for stallions
with no better record than 2:20. The horse
will go through to his destination by express,
Mr. Benj. Woodmansee, in charge of Mr.
Kittson's breeding farm and stock, going
along to handle the horse in his preliminary
work and drive him in the race.
The other entries in this race are:
Hambletonian Mambrino, b. h., by Curtis'
Indianapolis, br. h., by Tattler, son of
Independence, gr. h M son of Campbell's
Young Andrew Jackson.
Victor, b. h.,by Gen. Knox, son of Vermont
Kentuckian, (jh. h., by Balsora.
Of these Yon Arnim, Indianapolis and
Hambletonian Mambrino are the only ones
that commenced the present season with a
record better than 2:Bo— Von Arnim, 2:28 and
nine heats; Indianapolis, 8:21 and twelve
heats; and Hambletonian, 2:21 # and sixteen
heats. Both Yon Arnim and Indianapolis
have been in the stud up to within a few
weeks, Indianapolis not yet having appeared
in a race, we believe, and Yon Arnim in one
only, that at Minneapolis Monday last, when,
on a slow track, and being decidedly out of
condition, he won in three heats, in 2.-28*,
2:32^', 2:28 X» making the entire circuit of the
track on a fal&e start between the first and
second heats in 2:29, and passing under the
wire in each heat in a jog.
Hambletoniaq Mambrino commenced the
season in the Washington and Philadelphia
circuit, and went through the Grand Central
circuit, but has 1 not, so far as we have been
able to find in the hurried examination we
have been able to give the matterjsucceeded in
lowering his record, his best performance that
we find being at Rochester, N. V., where he
was third to Piedmont and Lucy, being sec
ond to Piedmont in the third heat, the fastest
in the race, 2:173,'. At Hartford, Ct, when
Thome downed Piedmont in three straight
heats in 2:17* , 2:18* , 2:18* , he was seventh,
Thorne, Piedmont, Lucy, Voltaire, Emma B.
and Steve Maxwell finishing ahead of him.
Of the other three entries, Victor entered
the 2:30 list . at Boston, Kentuckian at
Philadelphia, both this season, while Indepen
dence still remains outside the charmed cir
The first we find of Victor is at Boston,
Mass., June 7, whew he is entered "H. Wood- i
rufi's b. h. Victor," in the 2:40 class, he fin
ishing fifth to Arthur, Portia, Nelly W. and
Gen. Custer, best time 2:2B* ,in 5 heats. His best
performance that we have found was at Hart
ford, Ct., June 29, in the 2:34 cUss, which
he won, taking the first, third and fourth
heats, and beating Blackwood Prince, who
took the second heat, Capitola Furette, Pil
grim and Flora Jefferson. Time 2:24 X, 2:23 « ,
Independence, so far as we find, made his
first appearance this season at Detroit, Mich.,
June 2, in the 2:34 class, in which he finished
third to Big John and Alice Taylor, Grand
Sentinel, Hermes, Jim Lane, and Lady MacD.
being behind him . Time 2:29* , 2:2lf£, 2:31 * .
His next appearance was at Jackson, Mich. ,
June 10, in the 2:34 class, where he finished
sixth to Big John, Jerome Eddy, Alice Taylor,
Lady MacD., and Grand Sentinel. Time
2:32*, 2:31* , 2:27, 2:32*. Early In the
season Independence was heralded over the
country as a sensational trotter, an d he was
largely entered, including the stallion race at
Boston, bnt we find nothing more of his per
formances than the two given.
Kentuckian entered the 230 list May 7, at
Philadelphia iv the 2:32 class, dropping the
first heat to Fritz, the second to Whitefield,
and winning the next three. Time, 2:29*,
2:30^, 2:30*, 2:28*. 2:30*. May 13, at
Philadelphia, in the 2:33 class, he was beaten
in an eight heat race, winning the first and
second heats, and standing fourth in the finish,
best time 2:27* in the second beat. At Phil
apelphia, May 26, he appeared in the 2:23
class, winning the second, third and fifth
heats and tbe race, beating Fritz and seven
others. Time, 2:27* , 2:28* , 2:28*, 2:28*,
2:30%. With these performances he seems to
have been let up. He was piloted in these
races by the famous reinsman, Jack Turner.
The above gives the records and principal
performances of the horses to codtest against
Yon Arnim, so far as we have been able to
get them in a hurried investigation. Inde
pendence has done but little, and has not, as
we can find, entered the 2:30 list. Kentuckian
did well in the three races in which we have
fouud him, acd is evidently fast. Victor at
Hartford showed that he possessed a high
turn of speed, starting in the 2:84 class, win
ning the race and getting a record of
2:23, his other two winning heats be
ing but three-quarters of a second
slower. The capabilities of Yon Arnim and
Indianapolis have not been shown this year.
The performance of Yon Arnim at Minneapo
lis, however, was sufficient to demonstrate
that, in condition, he will be tound capable of
at least equaling his record, 2:22. While Ham
bletonian Mambrino has not been able to low
er his record of 2:21#, owing to his company
being too ftfct for him, his finish second to
Piedmont in 2:17 J,' proves him capable of
trotting in better than 8:20.
Upon such a 6howine it would be foolish to
speculate as to tbe result of the race, but with
all coming to the post in good conditions hot
and close race may be looked for, with the
Minnesota representative not far back at the
finish, if not at the front.
Wednesday's cables brought the not unex
pected intelligence that P. Lorillard's brown
colt Iroquois, by imported Leamington, dam
Maggie B. 8., by imported Australian, had
crowned his Derby victory by winning in
handsome style the famous Doncaster St
Leger, about a mile and three-quarters, beat
ing some of the best colts and fillies in Eng
land. The St. Leger isjthe oldest fixed racing
event in tbe world, having been inaugurated
in 1776. The Epsom Derby, also captured by
Iroquois, and now the leading turf event in
England, was first run in 1880. In all these
years but nine horses have captured both
events,[Champion in ISSO, Surplice in 1818,
Flying Dutchman in 1849, Voltigeur
in 1859, West Australian in 1853,
Blair Athol in 1864, the French horse
Gladi.iteur in 1865, Lord Lyon in 1866, and
now in 1881 by the American horse Iroquois,
neither of these events having before been won
by an American bred horse.
Iroquois was bred by Mr. Aristides Welch,
of Chesnut Hill, near Philadelphia, and was
pucrhascd by Mr. G. L. Lonllard when a
yearling, and subsequently in a division of
property went to Mr. P. Lorillard, who
thought so well of him he entered tbe colt in
nnmerous English stakes, to which country
he was shipped in August, 1879. He started
in England twelve times last year, of which
be won four. He commenced the campaign
this season at Newmarket, May 4, and ran
second to Peregrine for the 2,000 guineas. In
this race he was virtually left at the post by
an unfortunate start. After he finally got off
"■-"■'"" ■ "■''"- ' i __^«v .
he was sent ahead to make the running for his
stable companion, Passalc. Notwithstanding
this the latter never caught up again with
him In the race, and he finished a good see*
ond. On May 6, at the same meeting, Iroquois
won the Newmarket stakes, Ditch mile. On
the Ist day of June he won the famous Epsom
Derby, which was worth above $28,000, beat
ing Peregrine and a field of fourteen starters.
At Ascot, June 14, he won the Prince of Wales
stakes, for 3-year-olds, one mile and five fur
long, sbeating a field of six. This stake was
worth $14,000. At the same meeting, June
16, he won the St. James Palace stakes, for
3 year-oldK, one mile, beating Leon, and
Wednesday he won the St. Leger. His next
public appearance will probably be in the Cesar
witch—another of the commanding English
events — two miles, two furlongs and twenty
eight yards, to be run at Newmarket October
11, in which he is handicapped at 117 pounds,
which is one pound less than Robert the
Devil was handicapped last year. His St.
Leger victory under the conditions of the
Cesarwitch, gives him no added weight. The
top weights for the Cesarwitch are: Robert
the Devil, 188 pounds; Bend Or, 132 pounds,
and Peter, 181 pounds.
A Good Beginning .
The first apparance of any of the Kittson
dale horses either in the show ring or as turf
performers, was at the Minneapolis exposi
tion, and the result must be extremely grati
fying to the enterprising owner, Commodore
Kittson. In the trotting stallion race his
horse Yon Arnim had an easy victory, win
ning in a jog in each heat. His impor'ed
thoroughbred mare Dorothy Vernon, by
Strathcannon, started in two mile and a
quarter dashes, winning one. In the show
ring he carried off the blue ribbon for 2-year
olds, trotting strains with Spottswood, by
Blackwood, Jr., his only representative
in the trotting line. In tbe thorough
bred class, his imported stallion Dalnacardoch,
received the blue ribbon, as did his
yearling filly by Enquirer, while his yearling
filly by Great Tom carried off the red ribbon.
His only representative shown failing to re
eelve either, first or second premium, was his
imported stallion, Woodlands,[pronounoed by
Clifton Bell, McClelland and others present
with running horses from Kentucky and the
East, as perfect a type of a thoroughbred* as
they had ever seen. But stock judges at fairs
some times make very queer decisions.
Red Wing This Week.
The enterprising management of the Miss
issippi Industrial fair, located at Red Wing,
Goodtue county, fling their banner to the
breeze and invite their friends to come and see
them Wednesday, Thursday, Frfday and Sat
urday of this week. The association have
grounds convenient to the city, with first
class buildings and a splendid half-mile track.
The programme included four trotting races,
in the 2:52, 2:32, 2:10 and 2:20 classes, a mile
running race, chariot races, a 10-mile eques
trienne race between Miss Barbara Lieut*, of
Dakota county, and Miss Addle E. Crownhart,
of Red Wjng, [bicycle races and other sports.
The programme is an attractive one and. it is
to be hoped that foul weather will not inter
fere to prevent its being carried out as was the
case with the State fair and Minneapolis expo
sition week before last, and at Hastings last
. Epidemic Among the Horses.
A large number of the work and road horses
of the city are suffering from au epidemic dis
ease, a number of deaths having already oc
curred. The veterinaries do not entirely agree
as to the cause of the epidemic, but the mode
of treatment in essential features are nearly
identical. The animal is effected with swell
ing of the hiHd legs, gradually extending to
the body, drooping of the upper eye lids and
running at the eyes, stiffness, and general
weakness, in all respects resembling what
used to be called among the farmers when we
were a boy, "pink-eye." At the first appear
ance of swelling of the hinder parts the horse
should be stopped from all work, and of
course, if not something of a horse doctor, a
veterinary should be called in. There is no
danger if work is stopped upon the
first appearance of the swelling, proper reme
dies are applied and the horse well cared for.
This course pursued, the horse will, as a rule,
begin to recover in three or four days, but no
attempt should be made to work him, when
the case is at all severe, for ten days or two
weeks, as the disease is very weakening, and
any over exertion when the animal is conva
lescing is liable to bring on a second attack,
which is almost invariably more severe than
tbe first. Rest and good care are indispensa
ble. If improvement does not begin to mani
fest itself in forty-eight hours don't delay, but
call in the best veterinary advice. Prompt and
thorough treatment is then necessary to save
the animal's life. But don't work your horse
a moment after the symptoms above noted
The Boston Stallion Race.
The stallion race at Boston, Thursday last,
for a purse of $10,000, did not result as antici
pated. In the first place, of the thirteen nom
inations, only three appeared to start, Santa
Claus, Piedmont and Wedgewood. Hannis
and Voltaire were on the card to start, but
were drawn in the morning. Alexander, who
had shown marked improvement of late,
pulled up lame in his right hind leg on Tues
day morning. Previous to the start the race
was conceded to be between Santa Claus and
Piedmont. Santa Claus, it will be borne in
mind, had done nothing since his defeat at
Chicago, and as appears had rounded to in fine
form, while Piedmont was not entirely him
self, his steady and hard work through the
central circuit having begun to tell on him.
Detailing the race, the correspondent of the
Chicago Tribune said:
Hickok was certain that his horse would
outtrot the chestnut whenever ho got along
side of him, and did not hesitate to say so.
The outcome proved that his views were cor
rect, for Santa Claus had a world of speed,
and may truthfully be said to have won each
heat that he secured as soon as he was point
ed for it. He could outbrush Piedmont at any
point, and displayed ability to speed fully as
fast as McGregor. In one quarter he struck
a 2: 11 clip. How far he could sustain so terrific
a pace was not developed. Piedmont
could not respond to his telling spurts, and
therefore was unable to hold him at a high
pressure for over a furlong. In scoring Santa
Claus exhibited a slight limp in his left fore
leg, but warmed out of it, trotted beautifully,
and finished in vigorous style. He made one |
break on the first quarter in the second heat,
and was laid up daring the rest of that mile.
In the first and third heats he trailed Pied
mont to the half, challenged for and captured
the lead on the third quarter, and won by two
and six lengths respectively. In the first mile
he swept by his rival with amazing ease, but
in the second his challenge was answered by
an energetic resistance, and It was only after
a severe contest for 800 yards that he passed
to the front. The fourth heat w«s devoid of
exciting features, as Santa Claus led from the
start to the finish, and passed under the wire
seven lengths ahead. Wedgewood, who laid
up in the first heat, forced Piedmont
along in the second, being even
with him at the three-quarter
pole, and in the third and fourth heats fought
for second place for three-qnarters of a mile,
but thereafter was of very little account.
Pools at the start sold: Piedmont, $200;
Banta Claus, $81; Wedgewood, $45.
The time by quarters was as follows:
Quarter. Half, quarters Mile.
First heat.... r35« 1:09% 1:42 x 2:17%

About 12,000 persons were present, and, as
tickets of admission cost $1.50, tickets for
seat in the grand stand $1 more, and every
body but members of the press and those
having horses entered in the races of the
day were charged full fare, the projectors of
the race must have made a huge profit out

Bosionians were given a rare day's sport on
Thursday. It is very rarely that three such
events as the great stallion raoe, a double
team trial in 2:23* , and a 6-year-old exhibi
tion in 2:16* , are crowded into one afternoon.
At Beacon park, Boston, Wednesday last,
William Sargent was detected pulling Tariff
in the 2:32 race, and Dustin was put behind
the norse with instructions to go to the front
or expect to be punished. Dustin won one
heat that night and a deciding one Friday morn
ing, and Sargent was expelled from all Na
tional association tracks.
Col. Wm. S. King, of Minneapolis, has pur
chased from R. M. Conway, of Virginia, the
inbred Boston mare Tdpsy, by Planet out of a
mare by Boston. Topsy has thrown foals by
King Lear, Abd-el-Kader, Margrave, Jr., King

King paid $600 for the mare.
The reported sale of Nutwood to Mr. Robert
Steele, of Philadelphia, is denied by Mr. J. W.
Knox, his owner. Mr. Knox brought the
horse from California, under an understanding
with Mr. Alexander, of the Woodburn stock
farm, where the horse is to be wintered, and
for whom he will 6erve thirty mares In the
spring, after which it is tbe present intention
to campaign him.
A telegram received Saturday from Commo
dore Kittson, announced that he and Mr. D.
W. Woodman6ae would return horns Wednes
day. Commodore Kit toon's visit this time
was too get a look at the famous Nutwood,
and if the examination proved satisfactory, to
buy him if he could. As nothing was said in
the telegram Saturday about the purchase
it is to be supposed it has not been made.

was the first to conquer the great Piedmont

do it, and the latter, after winning through
the circuit, trotted in 2:16& at Beacon park on
Thursday. She really mode a mile in 2:16,
but, as the weights were not right, she had to
go again, with the result given. Tkis is the
beet time on record for a 6-year-old, except
Maud S.'s. There is a future for these two.
Last Wednesday noon Col. W. 8. King went
to Chicago, going by the rivercoad. As he
passed Hastings, where the fair was in pro
gress, it was raining heavily. Recalling his
own experience the week previous, he natur
ally sympathised with the fair managers, and
seßng a friend on the platform, the colonel
sent the management his regrets for their
misfortune, ana at the same time gave him
the necessary funds for the purchase of two
tickets to help make up their losses. Verily,
"a fellow feeling makes us wondrous kind."
The foul weather of the past two weeks
caused quite severe losses to several of our
Minnesota horsemen, as well as to the several
fair managements. The owners of the side
wheelers, Messrs. Allen, Johnson, Hankeyand
Brown, were especially unfortunate. Their
engagement at the state fair failed to materi
alize, owing to rain. They then shipped their
horses across the state to Fargo, only to be
again disappointed from the same cause. It's
rough, boys; but horse racing is mighty un
certain, especially in rainy weather. Try

A very drunk and limber individual stretched
his lank form on the sidewalk at Bridge

Yesterday afternoon a terribly budged indi

The attention of early pedestrians on Broad,
way street near the engine house yesterday
morning, was attracted to a large pool of
blood which defaced the sidewalk for some
distance. The gore had been freely spilled and

A boy is a boy, and being such he is in duty
bound to manifest at intervals his inborn spirit
of pure cussedness. Yesterday afternoon, as
the young son of Lawyer Thompson was rid
ing down Chestnut street he attracted the at
tention of another small boy named Drake,
who proceeded to pelt the young horseman
with stones. One of the missiles took effect,
striking young Thompson on the head aid
creating a painful scalp wound. He fell from
his pony and was assisted by bystanders.
It is remarkable the extraordinary amount
of perdition that be eliminated from a few
scruples of tanglefoot when backed by the
right kind of subjects. This was vividly set
forth yesterday afternoon by the conduct of a ,
couple of wild Bohemians who lushed up on
the stuff and a circus ensued that aroused I a
whole neighborhood. The brace of bullies
visited Sheehey's saloon, Third and Commer

desire to fight. They were accommodated and
an infernal ruction ensued which brought out
the people for a mile around. There was ; a

was seriously hurt. The bruisers were yanked
in by officers Zirkelbach and Da Coney.

Sacramento, Sept. 18.— In 1877 a well
known dtizen of Lincoln named Singleton
disappeared. A farmer named Miles, a respect

Singleton $3,0C0. Singleton visited him to

gold watch known to have belonged to the
missing man. A few neighbors who renum
bered the circumstances of the disappearance,
and tho filling of tbe well, connect
the two siroumstanccs together. Miles
had sold the farm. The new
proprietor consented that the well
should be excavated to its bottom. This was
done last Thursday, although the work was
not completed until Friday. The body of
Singleton was found at tbe bottom of the
well. The high respectability of Miles, the
popularity of Singleton, and the relations sus

Miles was taken to Lincoln. On the way
he acknowledged to the deputy sheriff that he
put Singleton's body in the well where it was

Miles, was stunned. Singleton had ao arm
broken, and was injured otherwise, so he died
in Miles' field? Miles says, not knowing what
to do, he threw the body in a well. He gave
no reason why he concealed the affair. An
