OLD GLORT FIRED UPON.
TJued to Protect a Coffee Plantation
but Not Respected.
St. Luis, Cuba, Sept. 1, via Tampa, FUl,
Sept. 9. A government guerrilla band re
cently visited the coffee estates of La Es
peranza, the property of anAmcrlcan, Senor
Pedro RIvery, two leagues' from here, and
fired upon the laborers engaged in gath
ering the crop.
Owing to their bad marksmanship no
one was either killed or wounded.
The Stars and Stripes were promi-
nenUy displayed from a flagpole over Mr.
Rivery's residence at the time, but the
Spaniards did not respect it in the least.
His workmen have been driven off by the
guerrillas. Mr. RIvery now doubts it be
will be able to harvest his crop. He goes

CLIFFORD IS DANGEROUS
Noted Turfmen Say He Will Beat
Henry of Navarre.
Some Inter-extlng GohIi Aljout the
Greiit HorHO himI His LnHt
It is now the impression among horee
"roen that if Clifford starts lu the race
with Henry of Navarre, Domino, and Key
el Santa Anita to morrow and It Is
pretty generally believed that he will
he Is likely to beat the trio.
Clifford' was never in as good shape as
speed- lately than ever before. Orlando
Jones, ot this city, who saw the defeat of
game Sir Walter on Saturday, Is credited
with declaring that a horse never went
through the stretch at feheepshead as f06t
as Clifford did in that, race, ami other
good Judges of race horses and speed say
the same thing.
It is, of course, but natural that each of
the eminent turfmen who bae horses in
this very interesting cent fe'els pretty
sure that he has named the -nlnuer, but
the pojhilar belief among horsemen here, as
elsewhere, as stated in The Times yester
day, seemed to be that Henry of Naarre
The naming of Clifford, however, with
the stories of the greatness of his per
formance on Saturday, Keems to have
turned many admirers of the Belmont
crack ail around, and made them extremely
dubious as to his ability to beat the Rose
horse in his present form.
In fact, while Domino's great sprinting
qualities are not forgotten, and It Is like
wise borne in mind that Key el Santa
Anita is not to be overlooked In any com
pany, the prevailing feeling now seems to
be that the struggle will narrow down to
Navarre and Clirford, and that It is a
toss up as to wfflch will land first.
Speaking of the possibllitle-s of this race,
a dispatch to The Times says that a new
track record for a mile and a furloeg may
be one of the results. When Clifford can
stay at the post half an hour, get away In
the ruck, run around a big field of horsis.
and then finish within one-fifth of a second
of Terra Cotta's champion mark, he should
be capable of still greater things with only
two or three competitors and compara
tively no delay at the start. Domino 'will
see to it ttiai the pace will be all that could
be desired, for it has been demonstrated
that the black champioti likes go to the
front and make his own running without
being choked up ami yanked off his stride.
Domino can put in the first mile better
than 1-40. Will the others be able to
come and take bira? To morrow will
tell the tale. '
To-day a race is to be run at Sheepsnead
Bay that will interest every Iocr of tbe run
ning horse in the country. It is that for the
Flatbush stakes. The distance is seven
furlongs and some of the most famous 2
year olds in the land wilt try for It. Among
these will be Requital, winner of tl.e fu
turity; Crescendo, the great California
colt; Ben Brush and One I Love. Hastings
and Handspring are also entered for this
race, but neither will start.
This will be the first chance the Western
colt, Bcu Brush, has had to go against any
of the re-ally strong youngsters of the East,
and it will serve to test fits merit, which his
owners and many who have watched him
closely beIlee-to be superior to that of any
other 2-year-old or the year. There arc
many predictions, however, that neither
Requital, Brush or Crescendo will be in
this race if One I Love Is herself and goes
to the post.
This clever filly Is credited with having
worked three- quarters of a mile around the
turn at Bheepshcad tbe other day In the
quick time of 1:14 1-4, a performance that
is looked ujKjn as quite good enough to set
the wisest of the oracles to guessing whether
any of the cracks can cope with her.
The subject of a race under the old con
ditions, with a high-wheel sulky on an el
liptical track, to beat tbe record of Maud 8,
2.08 3 4, is again up. It has been jup regu
larly for the past five years, but no at
tempt has been made up to this time t
equal or outdo the famous old mare's per
formance. It is now suggested that Azote Is the horse
capable of doing the trick, and it may be
that be will shortly be started to try It.
A turf expert says that Azote Is commonly
believed to be faster than either AUx or
Nancy Hanks, although he has yet to beat
their records, and bis enormous size and
power, together with his peculiarly easy
gait, fit him to handle trie heavy, vibrating
old style sulky with less drawback than al
most any other horse tbat could be named.

A NEW TIHE INFLATEll.
Wliicli Seems to De-erve the Atten
tion ot Wheelmen Everywhere.
This new tire-valve is described by the
Scientific American as being simple, inex
pensive, airtight and dustproof. It pro
trudes but little from tbe wheel-rim, is
easily secured in place and is not likely
to get out of order.
A metal sleeve extending through the
rim incloses a rubber and canvas sleeve
extending Into the tire, and in this sleeve
is fitted the valve casing, made with on
external flange embedded in the Interior
sleeve. Centrally in the valve casing is an
air passage and valve seat, the valve being
preferably faced with rubber or similar
material, and tbe air passing around the
valve, when It is removed from its scat, to
tbe Interior of the tire.
A wire across tbe iqner rnd of the valve
casing prevcu's the valve from falling out
of Us chamber. A cap screws into the
outer end of the valve casing, a rubber
wa6her forming an airtight closure, and
to inflate tbe tire this cap is removed and
an ordinary air pump is applied. The air
forced in by the pump moves the valve from
Its sear and passes into the'tlre, the back
pressure closing tbe valve when the pump

The memoirs of Prince Stanislas Ponia
towski, now in course of publication, will
be of unusual Interest. The Prince was
Torn in Poland in 1 754. He was a nephew
of King 8tnnielas Augustus Ponlatowski,
for whom the favor of Catherine tbe Great
secured tbe throne of Poland. During the
sixty six years of his life the author of these
memoirs witnessed many things. Contem
porary of Louis XV, Frederick the Great,
Maria Theresa, Catherine of Russia, and of
Natioleon, his birth gave bim access to a
great number of Illustrious persons. His
rapid notes are full of Interest and unknown
anecdotes. Prince Stanislas took an active
part In the events which preceded the last
struggle of Poland for independence. After
the partition, he went to St. Petersburg,
where he saw the great Catherine for the
last time. He says of her: "Tbe general
Idea of the Empress is very different from
the reality. Her conversation was simple,
natural and highly instructive. A stranger
would' have taken her for the wife of a
burgomaster, or some rich and enlightened
merchant, and such it pleased her to be at
times when she saw In it no lnconvenlencs
from quilting her great role. The only
moments when she showed the autocratic
spirit were when she spoke of her empire;
then she became gradually carried away.
And, indeed, was she not speaking of one
fifth of theglobe?"
At the top ot a house at thcRue des
Balnts Teres, in Paris, M. Koch, a pro
fessor ot the university, nephew of Mme.
Drouet, who, as will be we'll remembered,
was the interpre-ter of "Lucrece Borgia,"
and later one of the mostintlmate friends ot
Victor Hugo, has established a little
memorial museum, funUshrd with objects
once lielonging to the great man. Eepcct
is due to the sincerity of M. Koch's en
thusiasm, but what a singular Victor Hugo
one discovers in this sanctuary. Among
other things one notes by the side of objects
collected on the field of Waterloo during
the genesis of "Les Miserables," pebbles
from Jersey, an assortment of goose quill
pens, a dirty cap, an old leather portfolio
and no one knows what beside. AH these
fragments are ornamented with small la
bels on which Victor Hugo has certified
tbat they have belonged to him, and that
be guarantees their authenticity. There
is something ludicrous about it. It is a fact
that even at a time when he was far from
being deified, Victor Hugo distributed
his relics with a certificate of genuineness.
Pebbles from Jersey generally bore a large
signature in Ink, with the date. And he
wrote: "I attest having traveled 600
leagues with this bag, which contained .the
manuscript ot 'Les Miserables.' " Tbe
room contains a table of the style of Louis
XIII, covered with plate glass, under which
in letters of large dimensions, is this in
scription: "I present to Mme. Drouet this
tablo on which I wrote 'La Legende des
Slecles. Victor Hugo, Jersey, August 16,
A 1839." The owner of the table relates
that, one day, a new servant took a sponge
with the Intent of "cleaning" the table,
and was prevented by tbe entrance of one
ot the family. A workman, called In haste,
placed the glass, thus protecting the in
scription from future danger. It is al
most to be regretted, for the sake ot Hugo's
memory, that the arm of the servant was ar
rested. The table would have remained
an authentic souvenir of a masterpiece
happily! But why should the deformities
of a great man be set In relief?

Declares an Accident Took Yester
day's Game from the Spiders-
Says He Will "Win tlio Pennant Sure'
and Tbat Baltimore-Must Dig
for Second Fliee.
(Special to The Tiroes.)
Baltimore, Sept. 10. "It was bard lack
that beat us out of tbe garde yesterday,'
said Tebeau this morning.- "Expect to win
It? Of course, I did. Why not?. We
would have won it, too, if It bad not been
for tbat error of Blake's. Bat accidents will
happen, and I'm not kicking.
"We now have on up-and up game with
these fellows bere, and to-day we play the
rubber. We may get the worst of it again,
but I don't think wc wjll. Iiufact, I'm
more confident of winning to-day than I
was yesterday, and I thought we had 'a.
cinch on tbat.
"But there's no telling about these things.
As far as winning the pennant goes, we're
out for It. I believe Cleveland has as good
If not a better ball team than any other
town lathe League. Onetblngrssure they
are as game a lot of men as ever were
gotten together, and they play ball until
tbe Inst man is out. There are no faint
hearted citizens among the Spiders.
"Of course, if we lose again to-day. It
will make It all the harder for us to pull In
the flag, but I believe we can do It at that.
"I don't expect to lose a game when we
get West again, while 'you men are liable
to rail down a good many times, ir you do
It's an day with you.
"I'm not Just sure who will be sent in to
pitch to-day. It depends on circumstanced
whether it will be Cuppy or somebody else.
Wilson andBIake have beensent home. This
cripples us, of course, but I can best you
fellows to-day anyhow. George Tebeau
will play right in Blake's place.
"What makes me think you will lose the
pennant? Why, the good things ahead of
us and the tougb nuls you will have to crack.
We have been through our tightest places
and we can crawl up on you In tbe next
two weeks of the season. Tes, we're almost
sure to win the pennant and you fellows will
have to dig for second place.
"That Ulk of President Hart about the
League not permitting tbe Temple cup
series is another version of the story of
what the fox said about the grapes. In
bit attempted argument against the Temple
tup series Mr. Hart argues powerfully lu
favor of It, for be points out howf iertely
all have played and what an uysreeedent
edly close race It has been, and he admits
that t he men have played the game so hard
largely for a slice of the good. things in
tbe Temple eup series. The series will be
played all right, and if Cleveland tomes
to tbe front or Is second, with Baltimore
first, there will be no trouble about an ad
justment of division of proceeds."
