were there had as much amusement aa might
ordinarly be expected at a week's racing
among the thorough bredg ol the great racing
The first race was a trot for $2;0. Ihe en
tries were Gallina's Mamie G., Alexander's
Arkansas and the black mare Ilattie McGav
ock. Mamie G. won the first heat in good
style, with Ilattie McGavock second and Ar
kansas third. In the second heat Mamie G.
showed a slight lameness but was a good sec-
ond to Arkansas, wno trottea very wen. iue
third and fourth heats were taken by Mamie
Arkansas behaved so badly in these two
heats that the other drivers, as well as nia
a. were anxious that he should be drawn,
but as he had won a heat, and there were
pools on him, the judges ordered him to go.
Ihe second, ana most exciting ui ms
evening, was the miie-ana-repeai lor uoca
horses. Three started Fisher's George,
Watson's Shelby and Donohue's Tennessee.
George came in ahead on the first heat, but

George won the second heat, being a tittle
ahead ol Tennessee, ana oneioy a consiaera-

who immediately remounted and rode
through the heat; but Tennessee lumped the

four-year-olds for fifty dollars. This was one
mile and repeat. Only two started. They
were both handsome bays, one named Victor,
the DroDertr of Charley Gallina, the other
called Ballet, owned by Mr. Vivet, of Missis
sippi. Bullet trotted squarely from the
start, and won the two neats in gooa siyie,
although Victor trotted rapidly at times, and
would have had a faif chance for the race
had he not lost his feet so often.
The fourth and last race on the programme
was a half mile dash between Walsh's sorrel
mare and Sharp's gray mare. This shoit
race was gamely contested from the start,
and resulted in a victory for the eray.
A match race, one-quarter of a mile, was
run by a bay and a sorrel. The latter made
a good start and kept ahead till the stables
were reached, when he endeavored to bolt.
This delay gave the bay a chance, and he

was no fast time recorded, the trots being
slower than three minutes and the running
somewhere near two and a half. The track
is in irnod condition, and the park grounds
are well kept and attractive. The owners of
good horses, as well as those who-are fond of
racing, ought to endeavor to keep the place
open as a driving park.

Cheap Dinner wanted.
Editors Appeal For some time past
r has had an advertisement of a
at fifty cents. Some people may think this
is something new, when the contrary is the
fact, as the I'eabody, John Gaston, and Floyd
have been furnishing the best meals for fifty
cents for years. The party is far from filling
a long-desired want. nat our people want
is a decent meal at from fifteen to twenty
five cents, and he who starts the enterprise in
a good location, understands and attends to
his business, will surely thrive. The great
majority of our clerks in stores and offices
are poor, and cannot afford to pay fifty cents
for a meal, but could and would pay fifteen
and even twenty-five cents. They want such
places free from saloons, where they can go
quietly and enjoy their meals and retuin to
their business. You cannot go to-day and
get a plate of soup (and lunch, vile stuff it
is i ior less man ten cents, mis is written
with the hope that some enterprising person
or persons will see the necessity of starting
eating-houses where meals can be obtained
by transient parties at living rates, and with
the hope that those who do undertake it will
make money. L.

Hon. W. M. Smith in Reply to Mr. Ter-
Editors Appeali-1 have read the card
of Mr. Vernon in the Api eal of to-dav in
reference to the marine asvlum bill. Mr.
Vernon is entirely correct. The bill which
he refers to passed the senate, ceding juris
diction over several lots in Fort Pickering.
After the bill got into the house, I asked Mr.
V. to look after it, but I soon learned that
the United States district attorney at Mem
phis had advised the government that the
title to two ol the lots was detective. v hen
I learned this fact I informed Mr. V. that it
would not do to cede jurisdiction if the
United States government declined to take
the lots, hence the delay in the matter.
Afterward I introduced into the senate a
general bill, which was sent to me by Hon.
Casey Young and Senator Harris. This bill
also passed the senate, but late in the session.
I lost sight of it in the house. I think I
called the attention of our members to it,
but am not quite sure. This bill failed in
the house, like many others, because it was
not reached. I am sure it was through no
fault of Mr. Vernon, who was always in his
seat and well up with the business. I know
that he worked as earnestly lor our local in
terests as any member could have done. In
fact, he is one of the very truest members of
the legislature, and during the late session
won the respect and esteem ol all his . asso
ciates. It is proper to state that alter my
return I was asked about the matter, and,
referring' to the general bill, stated that it
had passed the senate, but I was not sure
whether it had passed the house, and referred
the gentleman to Mr. srnon lor mlorma
tion. . wm. M. SMITH.
Jackson, Tesn., April 27th.
For the arrest of Hayes White, the mur
derer of Sheriff Beattie, of Crittenden county,
Arkansas, a reward of $750 has been offered,
$500 by tie governor of the State and $2o0
by the citizens of Crittenden county. The
following dispatch was received here yester-
da7 : Acousta. ARK., April 2S, 1880.
To Fnrsteuheim & Wellford :
Bend this telegram to Major R. F. Crittenden, at
Marion. Arkansas, immediately. I have Hyes
White, and will have him at Little Rock to-night.

Mr. Mason, the capturer of 'White, is well
known in this city. He is a planter, resid
ing some ten miles from Augusta, aud was
formerly sheriff of Woodruff county. It is
expected that he will bring his prisoner from
Little Rock to Memphis to-night, and from
here be turned over to the authorities of
The capture of ,White was effected in the
following manner: A posse from Forrest
City, pn Monday morning, trailed him to
Gregory's Point, ten miles below Augusta,
on White river, and the murderer took ref
uge in a cabin, which was surrounded. The
neero who occupied the cabin was called out,
and inquiry was made of him as to White
being inside. While this parley was going
on White walked out leisurely and made his
escape to the bottom. One of the posm fired
at him as he was escaping, and then White,
as he was crossing a field, pulled off his shoes
and coat and disappeared. The posse evi
dently was under Dad management or else
White could not have escaped so easily.
While running from the cabin to the bottom
he held a pistol in each hand. On Wednes
day morning White was recognized and ar
rested at Augusta and placed in irons, and
from there taken to Little Rock last night,
from whence he will probably be brought to
this city to-night, or senrto Marion, Critten

The Opera Season.
At Leubrie's Theater, last night, quite I
critical and fashionable audience was in attend-
auce to watch the first effort of the Mozart society
iu its presentation of Weber's fine opera, Der
Frrirchut-. The east was filled by amateurs, mem
bers of tha Mozart society, the obiect ef which
is to advance lyric art In our city. The selection
of icr Frtitchut: was a daring effort, it being a
difficult onera to render even by professionals.
There were but few persons in the cast who ever
had seen It prescntea, ana witn mese iew, no
doubt, the recollection of it was more or less in
riutiimt Without the experience of even much
familiarity with the opera, and guided only by
the musical director, Prof. C. P. Winkler,
and the stage manager, Mr. B. W. Wilson, with
whatever other suggestions or instructions could
be secured it was given, ana certainly, taxing it an
in all. was auite creditably rendered by the ama
teurs. The orchestral parts, under the leadership
of Prof. Handwerker, were well and effectively
presented . The orchestra, composed as it is, of
thorough musicians, had of courw to wait lor and
then keep up with the singers, to the detriment of
t'n,. music to some extent, but the orchestra was
equal to all oalls made upon it for any purpose, its
members being familiar with the music and being
musicians of recognized ability and merit. The
plot or argument of the opera was published in full
in last Sunday's edition of the Appeal, which ren
ders it unnecessary to present In this uotiee. The
cast last night was as follows:
Agnes, Cuno's Daughter Miss Rallie Woodward
.'V U 1 ! It. Ajjun s V viiinin ...,....iui.- n i. i. n i... uui
Rodolnh. a Forester Mr. W. J. Stee
Cuno. Chief Forester Mr. J. F. Ryau

Prince uttokar Mr. R. Hutton
Killinn.a Peasant Mr. J. Roescher
Hermit . Jilr. Georce Mahan
Zainitil Mr. R. W. Wilson
Chorus ol Peasants and Hunters.
The first act opened with choruses of huntsmen
ana peasants, ana in wnicn --ituaoipo, jr.
Steele, aiid "Killian," Mr. Roescher, appeared in
the leading rul. Mr. Steele as ''Rudolph," sang
and acted quite well. His voice at times was not
equal to the part, not having the strength or com
iulss necessary, aud occasionally the action was
overdone, but he displayed a good conception of
thechnracter and prescntea ltcaretuuy ana con
scientiously. A " Caspar," the dissolute
forester. Mr. VouGundel - was fair,
but 'lie role was too heavy for him

their appreciation by rounds of applause and floral
otlerings. Miss Jennie Camp sang and acted with
spirit and effect, and at once became a favorite
with tha audience. Her snrichtlineas and man
nerism pleased, while her singing added to her
Success, rule waa uowncuiy appmuuvu, uu
mroivtMl bouuuets from her friends. At the close
ot the second act both ladies with Mr. Steele ("Ru
dolph) were callea before the curtain to bow
their acknowledgments to the audience. The third
:ict was given with magnificent scenic effect ,which
reflected credit upon the Mozart society and the
artists who did the painting. Tbe Wolfe Glen was
an eluboratv piece of work, and many startliug
properties are introduced by meansof ingeniously
constructed machinery. Natural cataracts are
made to leap over frightful chasms; owls flap their
ings ami roll their flaming eyes; the moon
changes color; human skulls vomit flames; lights
dance fitfully across the stage; wild boars rush
macllvahout ; witches, mounted en broomsticks ride
fantasticly through the air; the "Wild Hunter'' of
the Black Forest himself is seen on his rampant
donkey; fiery-tongued dragons envelop the scene,
and skeletons disport themselves in mad steeple
chases in showers of tire, meteors and bursting
stars. The scene was so realistic that several timid
people Lelioved the scenery to have taken tire and,
rising from their seats, made haste for the door.
The general effect of the opera was undoubtedly
pleasing to the audience. It was a most creditable
and successful production, and of which tfia Mo
zart society may well be proud. The critics and
even the general public are apt to expect too much
from amateurs, aud closely compare them with
professionals. This is clearly unjust. Certainly
Ihe performance last night came up to correct ex
pectations if It did not exceed them. It was satis
factory and every way worthy of commendation.
Ver Frrinekutz will be repeated to-night, but with
a change of cast in the following roUt: Misa Sophia
Houston will appear as "Agnes?' Miss Jessie Steele
as "Annie," Mr. Von Gundell as "Zamiel." The
opera will be reproduced at the matinee to-morrow,
and for the last time to-morrow night.
