The news published on another page
that Mr. Rose has concluded to give up
the breeding of thoroughbreds will be
read with genuine regret. The writer
had .conjured up brilliant achievements
for the youngsters bred at Rosemeade.
The dispersal of this stud will be a sad
blow to the thoroughbred interests of
this county and state. Although it has
been intimated that Mr. Rose intended
to retire, the Herald this morning con
tains the first official announcement.
The writer has assisted and fostered the
breeding interests of Southern Califor
nia. He has watched it grow from next
to nothing until its present dimensions,
and it kind of goes against the grain to
have to announce that these celebrated
brood mares and stallions must be sold
outside of this county.
Monroe Salisbury was the only Califor
nian to go back east with a string. He
has been rewarded for his enterprise, as
the small band under George Harris's
watchful eye has done wonders. Home
stake has been a disappointment, to be
sure, but the brilliant victories of Direct,
Little Albert and Vie H. have more
than counterbalanced the failure of the
speedyjson ol Gilbralter. Yesterday Little
Albert won the richest stake at Spring
field and reduced his record to 2:17%.
At the big breeders' meeting at Chicago
Vie H. beat a big field, and reduced her
record to 2:15%. This is the second
race Vie H. has won in succession. She
suffered from pinkeye early in the sea
son, but is now all right. Direct starts
today, at Chicago, in the 2:24 pacing,
and it is a dollar to a dime that he is a
winner, although there are no less than
twenty-two sidewheelers entered for the
Faustino, who won the inter-state
stake for foals of 1888, is a Californian.
He was a record-breaker before he was
sold east. He is by Sidney, and yester
day's victory stamps him as a star in
the trotting world. The time 2:18 is a
gilt-edged race record for a 3-year-old.
The northern fairs do not appear to
be very successful this year, from a
racing point of view. The reclassifica
tion scheme is playing havoc with sev
eral of the associations. The Napa
meeting now in progress is the next
thing to a fizzle. Several of the best
classes failed to fill. Oakland will be
the first good meeting.

A DIFFICULTY SOLVED.
Cattlemen Find a Legal Way of Grazing
ln the Cherokee Strip.
Caldwell, Kan., August 19. —As the
result of President Harrison's recent
order permitting the Cherokees to herd
cattle in the strip, provided they can
show that the cattle belong to them, J.
B. Mayeß, chief of the Cherokee nation,
with twenty-five leading men of the
tribe, arrived here last night and held
a conference with the cattlemen
now herding cattle on the strip. It was
arranged that all the cattle now grazing
there shall be transferred to individual
Cherokees by bills of sale. When the
time for marketing conies the cattle will
be transferred back at a sufficient ad
vance to meet the grazing charges. By
this agreement half a million cattle on
the strip will be kept there, and as
many brought as the Cherokeee care to
Railway Postal Clerks.
St. Louis, August 19. —The first an
nual meeting of the railway postal
clerks of the United States opened here
today, with delegates from eleven
divisions present. The principal business
to come before the convention will be
tbe consideration of a bill to be presented
to the next congress, looking to an
increase oi postal clerks' salaries; also
the question of changing the present
methods of the service, so as to increase
tbe efficiency. The present system is
not adapted to the increasing volume of
business, and it is proposed to relieve
all friction, improve tbe system and
make life less of a burden to the clerks.
The session will last three days.
Springfield, 111., August 19. —Reportß

timated yield being 666,472 bushels.
The hay ' yield is 3,609,732 tons. The

from last year.
Virginia Fanners' Alliance.
Richmond, Va., August 19.—Newspa
per repoiters were not allowed near the
hall while the Faruers' Alliance was in
session today. The chairman of the
press committee gave out information.
A resolution was adopted that the Alli
ance deems it to be both patriotic and
judicious to pay taxes in money, and not
in coupons, and earnestly beseeches the
taxpayers in the iarger cities not to sac
rifice the state upon the altar of commer
cial cupidity. The Alliance appreciates
the importance of settling the state's
debt, providing it can be done without
increasing tbe rate of taxation.

Baking powders now advertised as having published
upon their labels all the ingredients used in them are
shown by the Government investigation to have in their

Against Negro Immigration.
Editors Herald : To our regret we
see in the Examiner that Leland Stan
ford wantß to colonize the curse of the
south—the negro—in California. Many
have left the sonth to get away from the
negro element there, and no doubt
many good people would not want to
come among that negro element here.
It will be removing the curse from their
home upon us, where we do not want it.
If Leland Stanford wants them here for
political purposes, they will answer his
purpose, and be an improvement on
his purpose; but why should he want
them for political purposes, when his
legislature does as he wants them
to do? We do not want the negro here;
they will fill the towns, as they do in tbe
Eouth, and run politics in their low
grade saloons and will not work on
ANNA DIS DE BAR.
Her Name on the Hollenbeck Register
Worries the Reporters.
"Anna Dis de Bar" was the magic
name that appeared on the register of
the Hollenbeck hotel yesterday. The
reporters soon got on to the fact, and of
course were anxious to interview the'
noted adventuress. Miss Dis de Bar is'
famous as a spiritual fakir. She has.'
figured in a number of sensational epi
sodes, and tbe reporters rushed over to
the Hollenbeck in the expectation of
getting a graphic story from the lips of
Miss Dis de Bar.
'"The New York lady is not in," said
the night clerk. It was the same thing
over again until midnight. At that
hour one paper had three reporters wait
ing to catch a glimpse of the gentle
New Yorker. The hotel clerk sent up
to the rooms, but they were still empty.
The clerk looked up the transfer book,
but the name of Miss Dis de Bar was
not registered thereon.
"She probably came here and went
away," consolingly remarked the clerk.
The reporters now started out to locate
the lady, and were hurrying and skurry
ing all over the city when last heard
from. A Herald reporter woke up Mr.
Wassman, the day clerk, at about mid
night, and asked him about the matter.
"Wass, how about Miss Dis de Bar?
Where did she go to from the Hollen
Wass nearly fell out of bed.
"Why, Miss registered that way
tliis morning for a joke," he answered,
though he failed to appreciate the result
of being aroused at midnight.

Sapeck gravely walks into s grocer's
shop, and introducing himself as the stew

"The Phoenix, the Etoile, the Bonne

"We keep ten varieties in stock."
"Will you please light one of each kind
and put it on the counter and I will choose."
The grocer complies. Sapeck watches
the candles burn with the e /e of a philoso

"You can keep your candles. I think I
prefer gas, after all."
And he walked out, leaving the enraged
grocer with his half burned candles.—Le

The train was speeding along when in
the distance a wagon loaded with wood
was sighted. It was standing in the road
beside the tracks, and as the train ap
proached it was seen that four sleepy look
ing mules were attached to it and that a
big negro was asleep on top of it.
"Why, dari me," said the old northern
farmer who was going south to visit rela
tives, "he's stuck in the mud."
"Right you are," said the Pullman con
- Just then the train shot by the wagon
and one of the mules dipped an ear as a
sort of courtesy to the passengers.
"And bust me all up if the driver ain't
asleep," exclaimed the old farmer, httrry
to the rear of the car to get another look
at the wagon.
"Looks that way," admitted the con
"Why, he ain't stuck bad," he said after
a last look.
"Naw. Old Nance, my gray mare, could

county and not half try."
"It wouldn't take much of a yank."
"And that feller with four mules jest lies
down ou his lead and don't try to get out."
"Yes; that's the way they do down here."
"Well, what in blazes is he waiting for?"

Yesterday forenoon a hand organ man
stopped the wheels on which his music was

The "intelligent compositor" does not

reconciliatien of a husband and wife who
had become seriously estranged. After a
domestic quarrel of a strenuous nature tbe
man betook himself to a newspaper office,
where be wrote an advertisement stating
that he would not be responsible for his
wife's debts. Desiring two insertions of
it, lie wrote over it, "For two days."
When the "ad." appeared it announced
that for two days only he would not be re
sponsible as aforesaid. The wife saw it of
course, and was so greatly struck by its
comical aspect that she forthwith sought
her irate husband, and in a short time they
peacefully buried the hatchet. All on ac
