The second day at Buffalo was a good one

There were many interestins sporting events
that caused many all round surprises.
."ETECIAl. TELEGRAM TO THE DISFATCUI
Buffalo, Ancut 7. In order to over
take the four events on the programme for
the second day of the Grand Circuit meet
ing, the horses were called half an hour
earlier than usual this afternoon. The
crowd came later, and by 3 o'clock nearly
,000 people had distributed themselves
about the spacious grounds where three
times as many could be accommodated. It was
armor than jcsterdivand the track was much
Improved, so the fivers had everything favor
able for fast time. This was proven by the
performance of tbo crack stallion Kelson in
tbe 2:22 cla-g stale.
It was generally conceded that Kelson would
be the victor, but no one expected to see him
reel off two heats in 2.15 and the handsome
stallion has placed himself in the front rank of
performing sires by his last achievement. A
fewwceks ago Kelson trotted in 2.16 at
Boston in the third heat of a race on by him
over Mj stic Park and his improving form lends
him to consideration as the coming champion.
Hi stable companion, Aubme, was less
fortunate in the second stake, for after getting
two heats and a record below 2:20, she vas un
able to stay up with the pace set by ihe Boston
stallion. J. TL She Jd. who out-trotted Aubine
in the last three heats and was clearly the
earnest of the partv, most of the field being
very much ontclas-ed. John Turner brought
Huisun our. but concluded not tu start her and
Knapsack McCarthy, after scoring Rajah a few
times, drew the juung California stallion.
Keither of the other two regular events were
finisbe I. soth being in an interesting state
when darkness came.
The free-foi-all pace seemed to be asnre
thing for Roy Wilkes till old Gossip, Jr., col
lared him in the third heat and snatched the
Tictory lor the time. After getting tho fourth
heat Gossip was thought to have the race in
band, when bis old competitor, Jewett, came
along and onttinisbed him tor the fifth heat.
The 2:20 tiot, which started late, was con
ceded to Jack, but another gray flyer baa been
left out of the calculation till he showed bis
form in the first heat. This was the big gell
inir Gravlight bv Starlight, a son of Kentucky
l'nnce. Getting the pole to start with,Graylight
set apace that left the others behind him, and he
made the first mile in 2 17, bis first mark be
low 220. In the next heat be and Jack had a
dnel to the death in which Grayligbt proved
the faster, eclipsing his former mile by trotting
iii2.16J He seemed to have the race won as
lie led Jack till well np the home stretch In the
third beat and the Chicago fiver made a break
which seemed to settle matters. Strange to
say Grayligbi did the same thing and before he
could recover Jack had got too far ahead to be
overtaken, making the mile in 2.1i There
will probably be a great battle between the
Grays to morrow. Summary:

Lubricating Oil Company of Franklin, Pa.
His talk was incoherent.
In the Yorkville Police Court he said
that be had had a slight stroke of paralysis
some time ago, and was on hid way to Ger

credit for 100. He couldn't tell at what

The Verdict in Mrs. Maybrick's Case
Causes Great Excitement
ATTEMPTS TO MOB THE JUDGE.
Enormous Efforts Will be Made to Preyent
EMPEROE WILLIAM MAKES A SPEECH.
He Thinks Germany and England Will Present
the European react
Mrs. Maybrick has been convicted and
sentenced to death for the murder of her
husband. The verdict was a surprise and
is generally condemned. The German Em
peror will leave England on Friday morn
ing. IiTVEKPOOl,, August 7. A great sensa
tion was caused to-day by tbe jury in the
Maybrick case bringing in a verdict finding
the defendant guilty ot the murder of her
husband. Judge Stephens, in his charge,
said there was strong and distressful evi
dence showing a motive for ridding herself
of her husband. This could be found in her
infidelity, which had rendered it necessary
for her to enter into inextricable mazes ot
lying. He also called particular attention
to the phase, "He is sick unto death," con
tained in her letter to Brierly.
This was terribly important in view of the
fact that on the day the Ietter.was written
the doctors fully expected that Mr. May
brick would recover. It showed there was
reason for believing that the prisoner was
desirous of being rid of her husband, in
order that she might live with her lover.
The Judge put the question to the jury
whether itwas reasonable to believe that a
loving wife would yield to her husband's
suggestion and put an unknown powder in
his food. After the verdict was received
Mrs. Maybrick was sentenced to death.
IIOrtDINO THE JUDGE.
Thousands awaited the Judge's departure
from tbe court and howled with rage when
he appeared. The booting was incessant
and there were frequent cries of "shame."
The crowd threatened to attack the Judge's
carriage, but the police interfered. The
feeling over the result is intense. Steps are
beingtaken to stay the execution, further
medical evidence naving been secured.
The majority of the London papers feebly
concur in the Maybrick verdict. The
Ti'mes holds that "there is enough on the
woman's side to make it a case for the
earnest consideration of the home office. It
is notable that a judge, in passing a
sentence, refrained from expressing agree
ment with the verdict."
Mrs. Florence Maybrick is an American
woman abont 26 years old. Her grand
father on the maternal side was Darius B.
Holbrook, a wealthy New Yorker, and one
of the best-known men of his day, who died
in 1858, while her father was" at the out
break of the war Mayor of Mobile and one
of the most prominent men ot that part of
the country. After her fatber's death her
mother, at present the Baroness von Roques,
married the Viscount du Barry, a French
nobleman who held an officer's commission
in tbe Confederate Army and was mortally
wonnded in one of the battles near Charles
ton, S. C.
HER MOTHER'S CAKHEH.
It was charged that Mrs. Maybrick's
mother poisoned her second husband, but
the facts of the Yicomte's death are these:
Not long after receiving the wound which
caused his death he was placed on board a

We are determined to cany over none of our stock, and in order to clear our shelves for new fall goods, have instituted a cut-down on all lines
ot such a convincing nature that, as a money-making scheme, the public can by an examination prove to their entire satisfaction the truth of our
assertion, that nearly 50 per cent can be saved by taking advantage of the offerings we present in this Gigantic Midsummer Sale of Goods.
SUITS and WRAPS
are in sympathy with Dress Goods, and we have put the knife down
deep into values in this department. While we have sold thousands of

event in our general cut down felt among our made-up goods. There is
not an unfashionable garment in the stock, nor any undesirable materials,
but we must have room and we shall let them go.

in the hope that a sea voyage might save

The vessel in leaving port was sighted, pur

The excitement of the experience was prob
ably too great . for the Vicomte in his en
feebled condition, for he died during the
chase. But he was in reality a dying man
when he was pnt on board the ship.
The widow or Darius Holbrook died in
New York City in 1876. At the time of
Holbrook's death, in 1858, his estate was
valued at fully 51,000,000, but it consisted
largely of property in Cairo, Illinois and
throughout the Southwest, which greatly
depreciated in value after the war. The,
estate had been bequeathed by Mr. Hol
brook to his widow and daughters, and
before the death of Mrs. Holbrook she and
the latter united in placing the remnants,
which embraced some valuable real estate,
in a trust for the benefit of the two Chanler
children, a son named Holbrook, now dead,
and Florence, the present Mrs. Maybrick.
This trust was attached in 1879 by aTrieste
banker named Rosenthal, who had lent
money to Baron von Roques on notes in
dorsed by his wile, and the Baroness went to
New York with her son and daughter to de
fend it. The suit terminated in 1880 with
the deieat of the banker, and the Baroness
and ber daughter, who was then about 18
years old, at once returned to Europe. On
the voyage they made the acquaintance of
James Maybrick, whe had been for a num
ber of years-in the cotton business in Nor
folk and Baltimore, and in 1881 Florence
became Mrs. Maybrick.
ENGLAND AND GERMANY.
Emperor William Thinks These Nations
Will Preserve Earopenn Fence.
' London, August 7. The Prince of
"Wales gave a dinner to Emperor William
and Prince Henry, of the Royal Yacht
squadron, to-day. The Prince warmly
toasted the Emperor and said he trusted
that the influence of the great German army
and of the British fleet would tend toward
the preservation of the peace of .the world.
Tbe Emperor, in reply, spoke in terms of
high praises of tbe British fleet, which he
said was the finest in the world. Germany,
he said, had an army equal to her wants,
and if England had a fleet equal to her
wants, Europe would regard them as the
most important factor in tbe preservation of
peace. Prince Henry also spoke in terms
of praise of the British fleet.
Emperor William returned this evening
to Osborne, where the Queen gave a fare
well banquet, at which the members of the
royal family and the Emperor's staff were
present, To-morrow the Queen will review
the men ot the German squadron within the
grounds of the Osborne House. In the
evening the Emperor boards the German
imperial yacht Hohenzollern. He will
leave England at an early hour on Friday
A BLUE LOBSTER.
Handsome Shades Found on a Crustacean
Marshfield, N. J., August 7. A few
days ago Henry P. Taylor found a blue
lobster in one of his traps. The color was
not a bluish green, but an ultra marine blue
of as handsome a shade as was ever worn by
the waters trom which the crustacean was
taken. Along the back the color of this
curious lobster is almost an indigo blue, but
at the sides it is lighter, and in the joints of
the shell shades awav to a delicious cream.

ISFECXU. TELIORAM TO THX DISPATCH. 1
Long Bbanch( N. J., August 7. Once
a week the Long Branch Town Commission
ers meet in their little hall over the hose
house. The gatherings are not usually
largely attended, but to-night all the seats
were taken. There was a thick fringe of
standers that extended even to the stairs.
Among the spectators were a dozen or more
of the summer residents. All had been at
tracted by the rumor that the Baron de Par
donnet, an attache of the French legation,
would in open meeting prefer charges against
the gilded gambling establishment known
as the Pennsylvania Club, this year run by
Marks & Jolly, Phil Daly's feeble health
having forced him to relinquish the place.
& The Baron has been a conspicuous figure
at the West End Hotel for a month and
more. He is tall, much bearded, and a gay
dresser for an elderly man. He seems over
50. He claims to have lost to Marks &
Jolly, since early last month, about $4,000.
Of that amount he estimates that nearly

Of that he says he does not complain, but
professes that the balance was unfairly won
from him at baccarat, though it must be ad
mitted that his description of the alleged
swindle is hardly confirmed.
At any rate, the Bayn has made a great
noise within the past week. He has several

he would bring a complaint against the

It wb in anticipation of seeing the Baron
at to-night's meeting that the council hall
was crowded, but be did not put iu an ap
pearance, nor was there the slightest refer

which were largely devoted to the consid

After the adjournment one of the Com
missioners said very placidly that the board
EECEITED NO INTIMATION,
from tbe Baron sr any other man, that gam

the clubhouse, late to-night, Mr. Marks
denied that any compromise .had been
The frequenters of tbe place are inclined
to slight the affair. The Baron's losses
were trivial, they say. They are satisfied
that the game is honest. Baccarat was as
mnch iu favor as it ever has been. One
close friend rt the proprietors asserted that
they held the Baron's note for varioussmall
sums advanced, and that on the whole he
had been magnanimously treated. He had
played in poor luck and was now squealing.

That was Jthe-i gambler' summary o! the

The Baron, on the other hand, relates
that he can lace losses manfully, but is pos
itive that he has been swindled. He is
known to have laid 'the matter before the
French Consul. f
WILL BE SETTLED.
Though all the parties in the scandal
would not wholly admit the fact, there seems
to be cause for belief that a .settlement will
be quietly effected in a few days. The
Baron's lawyers and those of the gamblers
have come together, and -a compromise is
said to have been virtually agreed upon,
the terms of which will be a return of most
il not all of the Baron's losings. This will
satisfy the Baron, who has not hesitated to
openly express his chdgrin at beingplucked.
The denial of Mr. Marks is natnral under
the circumstances. It would be unprofita
ble policy to confess that the bouse had
agreed to refund, for that might be very
widely regarded as an admission that the
Baron was right and the game was queer.
NO REMEDY FOR IT.
Hog Cholera Can Only be PrtTented by a
Washington, August 7. In December,
1888, Commissioner of Agriculture Coleman
appointed a special commission for the in
vestigation of epidemic or rather euizootic
diseases of swine. The commission has just
completed their report to Secretary Busk,
and tbe following are among the conclusions
of the commission.
It is the opinion of the commission that there
aro at least two widespread euidemic dis
eases of hogs in this country, vis:
"hog cholera" and "swine plague." In
the opinion of tbe commission, the epi
demic disease of swine investigated by Drs.
Billings and Koberts in Nebraska, however
seemingly different in tbe published descrip
tion, is identical in its specific cause with tne
disease investigated by the Bureau ot Animal
Industry of Washington, and called by the lat
ter "hog cholera." As far as our
present knowledge extends, treatment of
existing cases is futile. There remain, there
fore, to be considered but two alternative
means of preventing, quarantine and
extermination of infections hogs. Some
of the tests made in Nebraska
under the direction of Dr. Billings certainly
give promise of great possibilities In this direc
tion. In the opinion of the commission, how
ever, that an attempt to produce Immunity
from "hog cholera" artificially by the nse
of the living germs of tbe disease either
through tbe stomach or through hypodermic
injection is very objectionable and involves a
serious risk of more widely extending tbe dis
ease, and increasing rather than diminishing
the enormous losses tberefrom.

AN ANCIENT .EGIPTIAN NECKLACE.1
More Like a Ribbon, of Oellcats, Tlssae
Tban Like Mere Metal.
It is a chain of exquisite gold, a rich
orange yellow in color, with liitks, dexter
ously twined one upon another, says an
article in St. JTicJiola for August, It is
about 13 inches long, of an inch wide,
as nearly 1-10 of an inch thick as I can
measure it with a rule. The ends of it were
at first fitted only with small solid Tings set
into clamps beautifully ornamented with
leafwork. Perhaps it was fastened to tbe
wearer's neck by a filament or a cord of silk
tied through. The present owner has ar
ranged a modern clasp in the shape of the
lotus flower. It can still be used, and in
deed as well as ever, as an ornament lor
one in full dress. It is so flexible, falling
down into picturesque folds the moment it
is let go, that it seems more like a ribbon of
delicate tissue than like mere metal. An
expert goldsmith told me, that alter he bad
examined it with his glass, that it undoubt
edly had a perfectness of uniformity in the
links which could be found only in a chain
manufactured by machinery.
This was to m'e a matter of wonder, for I
was not prepared to learn that the ancient
Egyptians had the knowledge o machines
which conld produce woven fabrics from
pare gold. It was at once a discovery and
a delight. It must be con lessed that when
I have spoken of this necklace aa belonging

Jates from the age of Moses, if Herr
Brugsch is correct a learned period, it is
a fact, but how mnch acquaintance the na
tion had then with delicate machinery It is
not easy to say. This ornament was found
in that range of tombs opened along the
Nile, where royal and priestly tombs were
frequent. It may have been worn by a
daughter a King, but not yet is anyone

A PELICAN DEFRAUDED.
A Gall Robs Him of a Flab, Bat Can't Keep
St. Nicholas for Augnst. 1
"Whilyhey were stopping to overhaul a
huge pile of sea-weed, their attention was
attracted by the comical, asthmatic cries for
food made by some young pelicans from
their nest of driftwood in the mangrove
trees near by. The old birds were hard at
work, diving for fish in the lagoon. The
boys watched one, which was quite near
them, with considerable curiosity. It would
flutter an instant over its prey, then plunge
down, and with open dip-net bill resting on
the water, would adjust the catch in the
capacious pouch beneath. Iu one of these
expeditions agull, with trained and eager eye,
hovering near, settled down on Papa Peli
can's broad head, and aathe fish was tossed
about so as to drop into the pelican's pouch
the thievish gull would adroitly snap it up
and sail away with a derisive "ha, ha!"
while the pelican, u ii accustomed to this
sort of pocket-picking, simply flapped heav
ily up again to renew its search " for food.
But the gull, as the boys speedily saw, had
laughed all too soon. For down upon it
from the neighboring shore swooped a
strong-winged fish hawk. With a shrill cry
of alarm the gull darted now this way and
now that, in zigzag lines, striving with all
bis power to escape. Fear and fatigue pre
vailing, he let his choice stolen morsel slip
from his grasp. Then the hawk, with a
lower swoop, clutched the falling fish and
bore it away to the nearest rock.
