ON THE SHOW
But Enthusiasm at Upperville
Was Not Dampened.
Excellence of Exhibits Was Never Sur
passed, and Events Were Pulled
Off, Despite Mud and Rain.
Local Horses Win.
(Preclnl (? TtiP Tlmes-Pl?psteta.)
UPPERVILLE. VA., June 11.?When
the sun rose to-dny the sky was almost
clear and the people of 'Fauquler and
Loudoun started to the Horse Show.
The rain overtook them on the road and
It has been with them all day. The
grounds wore covered with vehicles be?
fore the first event, a little after 9
o'clock, nnd all day tho grandstand was
pretty well filled. There were moro wo?
men than men among the spectators, a
curious fact very generally noted.
The rain fell almost without Intermis?
sion. At times the downpour was a per?
fect torrent. Yet nobody pretended to
mind and every eVent on the programmo
was pulled oft* as scheduled. The track
was muddy beyond conception, yet a
local person told me that lie had never
seen on this or any other track general?
ly as good performances as those of tho
hunters to-day. This Is true of the
jumping In every event. Colonel R. H.
Dulany, the veteran president of the as?
sociation, saJd this afternoon that after
making a careful examination ho was
convinced that tho horses shown this
year were better In many respects thnn
those exhibited any year since the or?
ganization of the club.
But there Is general regret that mud
provented a fair demonstration of what
the homes could do. It was plainly evi?
dent, after several jumping contests,
that the animals were well tired out.
It was a fact that tho crowd was not.
During tho high Jump event, late In the
afternoon, every good performance was
greeted with uproarious applause from
tho grandstand. The applause was deaf?
ening when Bachelor, Mr. R. Hunter
Dulany's horse, a homo-bred anima',
won in the heavy-weight hunter con?
test. Ixical horsemen were also elated
over the fact that in the open-to-all
hunters' contest yesterday afternoon Mr.
Courtland H. Smith's Tip-Top. which
took first places at the New York and
Chicago shows, only got a white rib?
bon here, an evidence of the class of
horses being shown.
The show will continue through to?
morrow, owing to the fact that the pro?
gramme could not be finished to-day.
But the attendance, oven with good wert
ther. will be small, as there will be no
jumping contests, which is always the
most popular feature.

rled to the Alexandria Hospital, nnd the
others wore conducted to their respective
homes, Keyes had been pinned down to
earth under the overturned engine for
three hours. All of that time he retained
consciousness. His right sido was terribly.
NEOLECT THE CAUSE.
It was late this morning before the
work of clearing theitrack was completed
and traffic resumed. An official of the
company stated to-day that neglect on
the part of tho conductor am! engineer of
the north-bound train to stop at Burke'a
Station according to orders was the cause
of tho accident. Burke's was to be tho
passing point of the two trains, but when
tho freight train going north reached
that station there was an engine on tho
siding, and It Is said that Engineer
Saunders mistook this for the engine of
tho work train, passing on at a high rate
of speed and crashing Into the south?
bound train near Ravensworth, three
miles north, Conductor J. C. Yochum, of
tho regular freight. e?caped by Jumping,
os did also Engineer B. G. Jennings, Fire?
man H. J. Keyes and Conductor W. R.
Poolo, of the work train. Mr. KeyoS
was returning to his home In thl? city.
He was a son of Georgo' W. Keyes, In?
spector of locomotives for tho Southern,
and was about thirty years of age.
An unknown white man was struck by
some shifting cars In the yard of the
Southern here this morning and killed. So
far on Is known there were no eye-wit?
nesses to his death, and no one known?
Just whon It occurred. He was found ear?
ly this morning dfiad near the track and
from Injuries on the body It was evident
that ho had been killed by the ears only
a short time before the discovery of his
body. There was nothing about his person
to Indicate his Identity, and no one who
viewed the remains at tho uniVrtakor'a
could remember having seen him alive.
He was about twenty-ilve years of age,
well dressed, of medium height, musculas
build, and had clear-cut features and a
clean-shaven face. The tag on his coat
collar showed that it had been purchased
In Richmond. A small sum of money was
found In ono of his pockets.
