Tho last of the four-day horse nnd
blcyclo race meet attracted yesterday
the largest crowd of any day, Thurs
day excepted, and there was brought
to a close n meeting that was marked
by success In every department. There
was n runaway and a bad bicycle spill
during the afternoon.
Finer weather could not have been
manufactured to order, and a better
ttack could not have been asked for.
Recent rains had made the course very
fast, as Bhown by the time In the 2.24
Clay Fullerton was tho winner In the
: r0 trot and Duchess Igo the 2.24 pace.
Although each event was won In
straight heats, there were pretty con
tests In each. Gregory won the one
mile open bicycle race nnd Strong the
The 2.24 pace, purse $300, tho second
horse event, gave better promise than
the opening class. There were four
teen scratches, but there were twenty
four entries, which left ten to go to
the post. Crockett drew the pole nnd
Red Rlrd, Lady Gray and Kit Cloud
trailed In the order named.
There was a spill, a runaway, nnd a
nohe and nose finish In the first heat.
Annlo J. was In third position when
she broke at the head of the back
stietch. She swerved in front of Al
bertlnn and the latter's sulky wheel
dumped Annie J.'s driver on the track.
The sulky righted Itself, but n tire
came off. Annlo J. continued to pace
and finished the half without n break.
After passing tho Judges' stand she
was caught by a plucky stable-hand.
A BRUISING FINISH.
The finish In the heat was a bruiser.
Albertlnu, on the rail, and Nettie R.
showed first into the last stretch.
Duchess Igo came around on the out
side and the three were driven hard for
the wire, Igo winning by a nose from
Albertina, Nettle U. third by u. half

The second heat was a very fast one,
Dutches Igo and Albertina were always
head nnd head at tho front. Nettle R.
was well up and was caught by Leotn
C. and Kit Cloud on the third quarter.
Tho second bunch, however, was never
within hailing distance of the two lead

Time, 35V4, 1.11, 1.45, 2.20V4.
There were only seven starters In t'he
third heat, owing to the distancing of
Emma G. nnd Lady Gray and tho
withdrawal of Crockett. Tho time was
fast nnd, as In the preceding heats, tho
leadership narrowed down to a few
horses. Igo and Albertina again made
the pace, which was a fast one, the

MR. SMITH'S GOOD WORK.
Fiank Smith, of Buffalo, who offici
ated during the meeting as starting
Judge, closed his second visit to Scran

form, holding tho bunch nnd making

The five-mile handicap was some
what of a disappointment on account
of a bad spill at the head of the home
stretch on the Inst lap, caused by
White colliding with Seward, who fell,
bringing tho majority of the contest
ants to the ground nnd thereby spoil

C. W. Gallagher, James Siangan and
James Hogan, the auditors of Lacka
wanna township nro conducting nn in
vestigation Into tho mnnner In which
tht anhnnl Imni-il wblph nerved from
June 1, 189C to Juno 1, 1897, conducted Its
arralrs. The board was composeu or,
Dennis O'Lenahan, president; T.R. Lov
erlng, secretary; Thomas B. King,
treasurer; John McCrlndle, Patrick
Hlgglns and Patrick Foley. The last
named two retired from theboard June
1 nnd were succeeded by T. F. Coyne
anil William Thomas.
The chaotic condition in which the
auditors found the affairs of the board
was one of the things that led to tho
Investigation. Yesterday the fourth of
the Investigation meetings was held In
McDonough's hall, Mlnooka, The tes
timony heard up to date Indicates that
tho board transacted Us business in a.
very unbuslness like way to say the
least and some of tho transactions tes
tified to smack of something even more
damaging than careless business meth
ods. An instance of this was the testimony
of Thomas Kellv nt the previous meet
ing of the Investigation commission.
Ho is a plasterer and did considerable
work upon the township schools. He
presented bills' to the amount of $470
for his work and actually received only
$200. The orders were countei signed
by Director Thomas Foley. It was also
shown that the nmounts expended for
the purchase of coal to heat some of the
buildings was much in excess of what
it would coat to supply a stove with an
ordinary appetite for coal.
Yesterday's hearing began at 9.30 a.
m., Attorneys George M. Watson and
M. J. Donohuo appearing for the au
ditors and Attorney John P. Kellv for
the directors. David Hollcnback and
M. J. Engan, both of whom had worked
for tho board, were the first witnesses
examined but nothing Important was
elicited from them, Henry Shorten,
who supplied the schools at Stark's
patch and No. 4 with coal, said he did
not receive In payment for the coal tho
amount of money the bills ho rendered
George B. Weber, of the firm of
Weber Brothers, of Avoca; William
McCormack, and M. P. Judge, of the
firm of Mulherln & Judge, gave evi
dence with reference to work they did
for the board. It appeared from their
testimony that their dealings with the
board were of a straightforward na
ture. Director John McCrlndlo testified
that McCrlndle & company furnished
Qiinnllna n th two MOOSlC Schools. He
Is a member of the Arm, but did not
instruct tho Janitor to purchase the
supplies at his place. Only the regu
lar market price of goods was charged.
Mr. McCrlndle is now treasurer of the
onhnni iistrlpt. With reference to the
purchase of a lot of ground from
Michael Gibbons for $2,400, ho explain
ed tho manner In which he voted in
favor of the purchase.
He was opposed to the board buying
any property at the time. Two sites
were under consideration, one owned
by M. J. Donahoe and the other by
Michael Gibbons. Ho supposed that
Directors King, Loverlng and O'Lena
han would vote for tho Donahoe lot,
and he thought by voting for tho Gib
bons property to create a tie and hang
tho matter up. O'Lenahan was presi
dent and voted last. He cast his ballot
for the Gibbons lot and the purchase
ONLY GOT A PORTION.
Eugene Drlscoll, who furnished coal
for the schools, testified that ho only
received a portion of the amounts
called for on the bills ho rendered.
Walter Shorten, teamster, also gave
some damaglnn testimony.
Director T. R. Loverlng, who was
secretary of tho board during the
period under investigation, was sworn
and produced some of the records of
tho board. They were In a somewhat
tangled condition and it was difficult to
ascertain from them Just what the
board had done In the way of paying
bills, etc. Mr. Loverlng said he was
opposed to the purchase of the Gibbons
property because he did not approve of
the location or price. He thought the
former too low nnd tho latter too high.
It was shown that a lnrgo portion of a
bill of $2,100 for repairs on school

Ing tho directors Intended to abandon
ns soon ns they could get money
enough to erect a building on tho Gib

crepancy of over $200 in the amount ex
pended for supplies and tho bills Mr.
Loverlng produced. He said that he
could straighten this out to tho satis
faction of tho auditors, as somo of tho
bills that should havo been charged to
tho supply fund were entered up
against the contingency fund. In that
way he thought the apparent discrep
ancy was made to appear.
EX-TREASURER KINGS SWORN.
Ex-Treasurer Thomas P. King was
sworn and told a straight-forward
story of his connection with tho board
and handling its finances. He op
posed tho buying of tho Gibbons prop
erty becauso ho thought tho prlco was
too high. If ho was buying It for him
self ho would not have given over
$2,000 for it.
Michael Gibbons was sworn nnd de
nied that ho over offered the property
to the board for less than $2,400. Di
rector O'Lenahan and Ex-Director
Foley were subpoenaed but did not ap
pear yesterday. Attachments will be
Issued for them. The citizens of Ml
nooka were to have had a meeting In
Fnsshold's hall last night to taka ac
tion concerning the Investigation but
owing to a misunderstanding about
tho date tho meeting will bo held to
night. SHIMBERGER IS SAD.
Poor Doard Refused to Allow Him to
Have the Duxom Polish Girl Who
Stole His Heart.
Michael Shlmberger, of Keyscr ave
nue, whose love for a buxom Polish
girl, ono of Superintendent Beemer's
charges at the Hillside Home, was set
forth In yesterday's Tribune, presented
himself at the meeting of the poor
board during the nfternoon nnd made
a formal demand for the hand of tho
girl. Shlmberger did not know her
name; to him she was simply Annie,
but he was sure ho was very much In
love with her.
He was told that Inasmuch as he
spoke German and the woman spoke
Polish they could not get along. "Oh,"
said Michael, "the same is not of your
business none. Shust get me dot girl,
who I lofe." It was proposed to him
that ho place his wants In Mrs. Dug
gan's hands. "Oxcuse me," he cried,
"I like one, only my girl, and I can do
myself so much."
Superintendent Beemor stated that
the girl who is the object of Mr. Shim
berger's admiration Is partially de
mented and Is not a proper person to
bo allowed away from tho care of the
Institution, Michael's case was dis
missed, and he retired with the part

and get his four children and put them
In tho home. He seems deeply dis

The case of Stella Frlger, of the
South Side, was called up and the ac
tion of Poor Director Terppe, whose
district sho Is In, was concurred. In.
He had dismissed the case. The rea
sons given were that she received vis
itors, or, as Director Terppe's com
munication stated, "held every day a
reception In the parlor for young
Polanders," and that liquor figured In
Mrs. Kato Kunz, of Petersburg, ap
plied for aid, her husband having de
serted her since last December. She
was referred to Poor Director Brooks.
Superintendent Beemer read his re
port for the month of July. The num
ber of inmates Juno 30, 1S97, was 378;
admitted during July, 3G; discharged

The matter of discontinuing tho ser

services In the hands of Edward How

have but two clergymen and divide tho
