Glorious Program for Today, Includ

Let Everybody Qo and
Everybody won who went to tho races
yesterday. Some amy liavo lout money in
vain endeavor to nume tho wiuner, but all
won delightful experience and a new
lease on life as the profit of an afternoon
spent in breathing the salubrious air, and
in banking in the spring time glories that
pervade and bedeck Montgomery Park.
hero were about 7.000 rmotiln r,rtant.
President Arnold viewed the spectaclo
with the liveliest satisfaction. It was
probubly the largest attendance in the his
tory of the course, and it included a
multitude of strangers. The club-house
fairly swarmed with well dressed people.
There were three times as many ladies ou
the portico as upon the opening day, and
the finish of each raco was marked by a
pandemonium of excited femininity. The
tally-ho ciimo up with a great flourish of
trumpet and style. The arrival of this
animated caravansary is anticiptcd as
one of the pleasant sensations of tho day.
The amenities of the portico are cliaiming
indeed. - The exploits of the track afford
a theme of common interest around
. which is woven tho civilities of
the gayest intercourse. Over in the
grand slam, where they have a much bet
ter view of tho speeding, is tho same thing
on a larger scale. The race course is dem
ocratic ground. Men, women and children
are there front every walk of lite. They
come afoot, in wagons, in cars and lu car
riages. They jostle one against nnolhcr in
the greatest good humor. The man who
wins is a hero for half an hour. Ho
who loses finds it best to jest with
those who jest at him. Your book
maker, too, is everybody's friend, for
lie accommodates himself to the condi
tions of each customer's pocket. His
not catches both minnows and whales.
The sport yesterday was capital. There
was considerable fluctuation as to favorites.
This meant eager interest in every event.
Again the officers of the course proved
their ability. The starting was quick and

me emeu fc puuciuuuiy in an iiiuiKS ou-
tnincd. The whole movement of tho busi
lien of tho track shows the cxtiert hand.
Tho crowds are as orderly as though it
were a cunip-iccting. The writer met
distinguished local Judge, Said ho:
know nothing of the horses; I never
msdo a bet in my life; yet
I come because the Jockey Club is
worthv of support and it is an iuslitu
lion every citizen of Memphis should take
pride in." He expressed what has como to
be a common and enthusiastic scntlmont
And, indeed, if you have a friend who
knows the courses at Louisville and
Chicago and Snrntoga and Shocpshead
liny and llrooklyn you may take him to
Montgomery Turk, confident that ho will
not bo able to institute, invidious conipari
son. lie must admit the superb character
of the track, the admirable elllclcncy of Its
officers and the completeness of its ap
pointmonte. Kvery lover of the turf in
West Tcnncrseo, Northern Mississippi and
Eastern Arkansas should be in Memphis
this week. He will wail many a day for
more interesting sport. Tho competing
tables embrace the scions of the very roy
alty of tho turf as yesterday when among
tho sires represented were K.nquirer, King
Alfonso, Hindoo, irgil, Duke of Montroso,
Rayon d'Or, Iiismhlo, Longfellow, Luke
lllackburn, George Kinney. Nearly every
race thus fur hss had at least a half doxen
to start, and tho finishes, as a rule, have
been close enough to be exciting. Tliesie-
dally interesting event yesterday was the
Tennessee Club stakes, raptured by the
Iteverwyrk stables with l'.rown Princess,
IJarnee in the pigskiu. iiie Hi ly was
out of favor last year, but by winning this
take In a sensational manner, gives prom
iso of earning her food this season. She
finished in such good condition that Her
Higness would doubtless have accepted an
Invitation to the ball of the Tennessee
Club last night The program for this, the
third regular day of the meeting, is a cap
ital one. There are five announced to
surt in the flist race, seven lu the second,
nine in the third, and three in the
fourth. The great event of the day
will be the Peabody Hotel Handicap,
and it is anybody s rare. The dutani
are, as a rule, longer than on any previous
day of the meeting the first event being
three-quarters of a milo and repeat. The
weather today, the Signal Service states,
will be fair and warmer, and tho moon
and stars last night gsvo confirmation to
the prophecy. Therefore, tho public
viured of another day of unadulterated
delight at Montgomery Park.

Tho events of yesterday developed for
the most part the fact that in the spring
every horse may have Lis day. Honors
were even between field and favorite and
there was a great desl of joy and an equal
amount of disappointment among the bet
Duchess May acted badly at the post
and was virtually left. I-os Webster led
Sunflower second. J. T. third, (ioinif u
the incline the field closed up and tho holi
lot tniuht have been covered with
blanket. Into Die sire It a the order was
Enterprise, Los Webster second. Sun
flower third, the favorite Tudor lost At
the eighth polo Macatllcv begun to make
ins run ami ail ucgan w mppiug, imv iajb
Webster was not to be beaten and finished
first by a half length from Macauloy
second, Madolin thin), who came fust
nt the finish, boaton a head for the place.
Tudor was first past the stand lapped by
Stull, the others paired two lenutlis away.
Arotinu tno turn liarnes seut btuii to me

Tudor, going back to third poaitiun, Lomr
Chance, second. At tho they were all
close up, Lottie Wall lust. In the stretch
1-ong Chance ImdStull beaten and the 3 10
post all begun whipping. Passing the
C lub House, Iing Chance looked like a
winner but Overion in his vigorous style
kept pounding Lottio Wall and lauded her
a winner by a scant length from Long
Chance second, Tudor third by three
lengths. ' Time 1:51.
The TIevcrwvck stable- was at once In
stalled by the talent as "cinches." The
odds started at 8 to 10 on, but was soon
bucked down to 1 to 2, at winch figure tho
money was shoveled iu so last tiiat the
bookmakers couldn't mnko out tho tickets
fast eunugh. Tho start was delayed by
tho fretfulncss of Le Premier nnd I lob For-
vtuo. The Ltevorwvck pair trot off in
front, Forsythe third. At the quarter
Cnssiirs was in front, Le Premier second,
lirown rrinccss third, an open length be
tween Cussius and the Princess, lioodler
trailing in tho rear. In this order they
raced into the stretch. hen well

forged to the front and won easily from
Cassius under a pull, lloodler came fast
in the stretch and was a fulr third. Lu

Mount Ix.'biuon was a strong favorite at
4. to 6, and lto2ou. Ho run an eiulith
at the first breakaway, but when the Hag
fell jumped into the lead, closely followed
by Amelia, the others close up. Amelia
rushed to the front, going up the sloo,
and Mount Ia.bonon dropped back to
fourth. Coming into tho stretch i'urncs

mucosa, but all to no purpose. Amelia

hunt. Insolence led with the stretch. Pat

Wasmihotoh, April 23. Mr. Clmrlo
Denby, tho United States Minister to
China, in a report to tho Department of
Statu says tho system of luxation in China
presents some decided contrasts to systems
In other countries. Tuxes outside, ot
Peking are paid on aniblo land only, tha
tux varying with the crop producing
quality of tho soil. Inside tho city oi
Peking there Is no tax on bind, houses or
personal property, floods brought to tho
city gates pay a lekin tax, but are exempt
from taxation afterward. The only tux on
land aud houses in Peking ia on the aula
ol reul estate, 10 per cent, being charged
on tho price obtained lor tho projierty
sold. Thero is also a tax resembling;
license fee. Outside of Peking, Chinese
subjects are liable to lie called on to per
forin certain duties whenever the Kmiairor
passes through their districts, but this
duty may be avoided by tho payment of a
small tsx. All moneys spent ou publio
account in Peking como from the Im
perial treasury, and the expenditure Is not
limited lo fuuds raised by taxation within
the city. Tho bulk of thepeoplo in Peking
ny no taxes whatever. The man who
owns his houso and lot, his implements of
labor, enjoys bis earnings without toil or
dediction. ' The Minister closes his report
with the following comment on Chinese
taxation as contrasted with the system of
taxation In the United States:
"How dill'erent this condition Is from
that In our owu cities where sometimes 3
or cent, on a hiijh valustionjis expected
'or publio purposes. To tho alawuee of
the taxation to tho body of the people, may
be ascribed the permanence ol the govern
