SHEKPsnBAD Bay, N. V., Jnne 20.—
Tbe Suburban handicap oi 1893 waa a
moat grievous disappointment to the
turf-loving public. Lamplighter, who
was looked upon as a sure victor, was
made to fall irom his high pedestal. He
was vanvqiehed strictly on his merits, aa
the race was fairly run from beginning
to end. Lowland, by Lowland Chief,
dam Restless, won the race from end to
end. He Bet the pace almost to enit
himself, and won aa he pleased in tbe
fast time of 2:08%, Terrifier second,
three quarters of a length away, while
Lamplighter waa third, four lengths be
Lowlander was a 10 to 1 ahot in the
betting, and all kinds of prices conld be
obtained on Terrifier. Lamplighter was
at even money. The race was worth
118,000 to the winner, $3000 to second
and $2000 to third. The winner is owned
by Bookmaker Fred Rowe, who, beside
the rich stake, netted many thousands

the Derby is in England. It differs in
condition*- and the class of horses it
draws out, for it is a handicap for all
aged horses, while the Darby is a
weight-for-age race, which brings to
gether 3-year-olds; but in the popular
interest it arouses and maintains for six
months before it occurs, in the army of
people who rally to the track to Bee it,
and especially in the stamp of distinc
tion which it puts npon its winner, it is
like the Derby. It has certainly pro

CROWDS AT THE TRACK.
The day opened oppressively hot, but
: the weather did not keep the crowd
away, for fully 20,000 were on the
grounds when the first race was called,
and people kept coming till the time
set for the Suburban. Even the acci
dent which kept fammiiny in the stable
and robbed the people of the great bat
tle it had expected between him and
Lamplighter, did not materially detract
from tha gala day. When the saddle
bell was rung the track teemed with
people, so that scarcely a epot waa un
THE FLYERS ON PARADIS,
When the dyers came out for parade,
it was a sight that was well worth the
craning cf necks to see. There was
Lamplighter, the favorite, with a depth
of girt, well-knit muscles, a strong back
and short, strong legs, as fine as a fiddle
and ready to retrieve his failure in the
Brooklyn handicap. But he was not the
only one the spectators approved of.
There was Conquest who ran a mile aud
a quarter on the straight at Monmouth
in IS9O, with 108 pounds, in 2 MU. He
waß only three years old then, and the
other day he showed he had not lost his
npeed when he ran a mile and a quarter
for the Standard stakes at Morris Park
in 2 MX- Then there was Raceland,
backed oymany whoremembered his vic
tories in times past. A dangerous horee
was that kin« of the sprinters, Dr. Has
bronck, as likely-looking as any in the
bunch. As Peaosra pranced np in front
of the stand it, waa Baid probably this
was another Campbell surprise. Pesßara
wae truly an unknown quantity. Then
came Mars to uphold the honor of the
Morris stable, in the absence of Russell
who has a bad leg. Charade, Lowlander
and Terrifier were not particularly at
tractive to tbe crowd, as it was believed
their chances for winning were slim.
The English horee Iddlesleigh came in
(or considerable comment. He is a big,
long rangy chestnut and a fair race
horse. He had never run at the sub
urban distance, and was not up with
the suburban class, exactly. The Pep
per looked formidable and had many
IN TnE BETTING RING.
The bettfng ring was the most ani
mated place, for everybody was anxious
to bet on the great event. Lamplighter
was an even-money favorite. Banquet
was next in demand at four, while Mars,
Lowlander and Pessara were at tens.
Twelves could be obtained on Dr. Has
fcronrk and Tbe Pepper, and sixties on
Terrifier and the English horee, Iddles
leigh. An immense amount was wagered
on the result, and moat of it Btayed with
LOWLANDER WINS THB RACE.
The race waa set for 4:50, and after
several breaks the flag dropped to a good
atart, with Dr. Hasbronck in the lead
and the others in line close behind.
Lowlander Boon took the lead, with Ter
rifier and Iddesleigh second and third;
Hasbrouck and Lamplighter followed,
with the others bunched close behind.
In the middle of the back stietch Low

Lamplighter and the rear bunch. At
the head of the back stretch Iddesleigh
was beaten, while Lamplighter and

three lengths before Terrifier and Dr.

and who were two lengths ahead of
The flying leader never faltered and
passed under the wire rather an easy (
winner. Terrifier secured second place
by four lengths from Lamplighter, who
beat Hasbrouck by a head. Banquet,

THE GREATEST SUBURBAN.
The greatest Suburban was run June
17, 1890, when it was won by the fastest
and handsomest horse that ever started
in it. the kingly Salvator. Salvator
was the public favorite, nnd his rival
Tenny was well-favored also, but could
only finish third, and out of the race
sprung a great match between him
and Salvator in which every frac
tion of the record of the distance
was shattered, Salvator doing the mile
and n qqarter in 2:05.
Salvator's pathway through life ban
truly been as strewn with fiowers as
the scbool-zirl'fl hope in thi autograph
albums. Ha had a royal time as a race
horse, and in youth, soundness and vigor
was retired to the stud by Haggin. He
is now in California at the Ranche del
Paso, and not so very long ago his young
sons and daughters were sold at tho
highest prices brought in this country
by those of a retired stallion.
HISTORY OF THE SUBURBAN.
Winners or t*« Rjjoe m Former Years, j
The suburban race was originally a
sweepotake race for horses of all ages
with $2500 added money given by the
Coney Island Jockey club, in addition to
the moneys contributed by tbe owners
of the horses. In 1891 its value to the
winner had more than doubled the
original value of 18S4, so the club re-
I solved henceforth to appropriate all the
entrance money to itself and guarantee
the value of the race at ?25,000, of
which $17.00!) should go to the winner,
*5 :00 to tbe second and 13000 to the
third. In this way the race has gained
a greater number of nominations, but
there has been no increase in the num
ber of starters, as they had hoped. But
had tbe idea become current, yesterday
morning, that tbe great Lamplighter
could get no better than third place in
the race, there would have been at least
16 starters instead of nine. Tha butting
has been given elsewhere so that no
reference to it is necessary, eavo to say
that the fourth choice won the great
event and the second place went to a
Tho Suburban was inaugurated in
1884, and won by the famom horse Gen
araj Monroe, who afterward defeated '
Lucky 8., tho greatest of all the Lob An
geles horsea, for the Chicago Washing
ton Bark cup. In 1885 it was won by
Lorillard's imported colt Pontiac, by
Peno Gomez; and in 1880 Troubadour
signalized it by going out to the front
and winning all tbe way. He was in
front from wire to wire, and every horae
in the race took a crack at him and fell
back beaten. In 1887 came the rascally
race won by Eurus, when t he two favorites
were left at the poEt —Ben Aliand Quito.
The Suburban of 18S8 bhw the terrible
struggle through the stretch, in which
the lightly-weighted "skate" Elkwood ,
beat the topweight ferra Cotta a nose;
and in 1880 "old bones," tbe game and i
unflinching Raceland, was the victor.
That of 1890 was tbe topweight's tri
umph. Salvator carrying 127 pounds and .
winning by a length from the light
weight Cassius. In 1891 tho outsider ■
Loautaka started at 2 to 1 and made a .
procession of it, while the great Tenny,
who had carried 130 pounde in tbe
Brooklyn and romped home,was entirely
"loat in the sbutll?." Last year the [
delicate but speedy Montana was kept
on his legs and at his feed just long J
enough to win it, after a fine finish with !
Major Domo. • .
Tne Suburban has never been twice !
won by the «et of the same aire, except
in 1887 and 1888, the winners of those '
years being by Eolus, a Virginia horse \

The End of the Celebrated
Not Guilty Is the Verdict the
It Took Them Just Twenty Minutes
to Decide the Case.
The District Attorney's Closing: Argu
ment—A Dramatic Hcene at the
Conclusion of the
I)y the Associated Press.
>!k\v Bedford, June 20.—-At the open
ing of the Borden trial this morning,
District Attorney Knowlton resumed
argument on behalf of the common
wealth. He addressed himself to the
motive for the murder. He pointed out
the enmity of Lizzie toward her step
mother as a sufficient motive for her
murder, and said her killing necessitated
killing her father, a stern man who
knew of the enmity and loved his dead
wife. The only way for Lizzie to pos
sibly escape punishment lay in killing
her father. This theory is the only one
which would consistently acconnt for
the double murder taking place in a
period with an hour and a half between
The speaker continued, arguing that
the silk dress produced by Jie defend
ant was not the dress worn at the time
of the murder. The two versions of the
burning of the defendant's dress were
irreconcilable. Ho discussed the de
fendant's conduct since the murder, and
declared the story told by Matron Regan
and afterward denied by her, about a
quarrel between the Borden sisters, was
''In all your observations," continued
the district attorney, "have you ever
heard ot an attempt to create an alibi
which wap more strainin? than the cir
cumstances of this one? That barn alibi
will not stand."
He then commented on the old and
dusty condition of the barn, and the fact
that keen-eyed people found no traces of
a parson havinn been there. How eho
conld avoid Retting blood on her clothes
the jury could not answer, because thoy
wero neither women nor murderers. It
was a singular thing that the dress,
after being kept so long, was burned
tbat particular Sunday. Liz»ie had
been told Saturday night that she waa
accused of the crime, and the next
morning burned the dreae.
The speaker said Mra. Reagan never

nnuer oatn. vtie prosecution did not
claim that they introduced tbe hatchet
with which the murder was committed.
It showed that the hatchet had been
wc<. and rnbbed in aabee, and that the
blade fitted almost miraculously in tho
holes in the sknlh.
He closed with an eloquent appeal to
The court tbeu took a recess.
LIZZIE GIVEN A CHAtfCB TO TALK.
On reassembling the dofendant was
given an opportunity to speak. She
said: "I am innocent, but I will leave
my caso in your hands, and with mv
THE CHARGE TO TIIE JURY.
Justice Dewey then charged the jury.
He defined the different degrees of
murder, and stated tbat the presump
tion of innocence is increased by the
defendant's character, and that there
most be a real and operative motive.
The judge further charged the jury to
weigh the evidence to see whether the
defendant's permanent state of mind
showed a motive for the crimes. Ho
said every material allegation in the in
dictment must be proved beyond a rea
sonable doubt; tbat is 88 to moral cer
tainty. He compared direct and circum
stantial evidence, and Baid the failure to
prove an essential fact would be fatal;
but failure to prove a helpful circum
stance not a fact, might not be.
Lizzie's statements about the note
were diecussed at length. He said they
mnst be satisfied that they were foUe;
every fact proved must be reasonably
consistent with guilt. The government
did not show that anybody else had any
opportunity to commit the crime, but
must prove that the defendant com
mitted it. The jury must reason as to
the effect of the defendant's conduct and
statements. They were not to conclude
by expert testimony, but were to apply
to it reasonable judgment. They might
ronvict if satisfied tbat the act was done
by auother party, but that the defen
dant was present, aiding and abetting.
The fact that the defendant did not tes
tify should not influence them against
Judge Dewey continuing said: "The
government claims tbat teese acts come
iii'ler the head of murder in the first
iegree. The law claims that in order to
l>rove this, every claim must be proved
aeyond reasonable doubt. It is stated
that the government presents the case
)n circumstantial evidence, It is under
stood by the court that the government
;laims that an eesential fact is embraced
,n the note matter; ttiat she made
itatomente which she knew were false
irhen she was making them ; but con
;ernolatea the porsibility of there being
tn assassin. Might he not come upon
ler when the note was at band and re
noved it as one of the links? In cir
:umstantial evidence, nnless every link
lolds good, the chain is worthlees."
The jury wa< asked to bear in mind in
lupposed facte there was nothing to
lonnect the defendont with murder, ac
ar as outward appearances went.
THE OKFKNIIANT ACQUITTED.
The justice concluded his charge' to
he jury at 3:10 p.m. At the conclusion
if the charge the attorneys consulted a
ew moments aud then tbe jury was al
awed to retire.
It was just 4:30 o'clock when the spec
tators who, kept their seats patiently
uring tho retirement of the jury, no
iced a movement that indicated their
elurn. A moment later tbe Vi neu
filed into their seats and were polled.
Miss Borden was asked to stand up,
and the foreman was asked to return
tbe verdict, which he announced aa
THE VERDICT APFLAUDED.
Then all the dignity and decorum of
the court room vanished. A cheer went
up which might have been heard half a
mile away, and there was no attempt to
check it. Miss Borden's head went
down upon the rail in front of her and
the tears came. Mr. Jennings was al
most crying, while Dr. Adams seemed
incapable of speech.
As soon as possible the room was
cleared, and when the spectators were
finally gone, Miss Borden was taken to
the room of the justices and allowed to
recover her composure, with only tbe
eyes of friends upon her and the caress
of devoted admirers. At the expiration
of an hour she was placed in a carriage
and driven to the station, where she
took a train for Fall River, her home no
longer probably, but still the only ob
jective point for the immediate present.
Fall River, Mass., June 20. —Lizzie
Borden received an ovation on her ar
rival here this evening. She intended
to stop at the Borden homestead tonight,
but on account of the crowd accepted
the hospitality of Mr. Holmes, whose
house was thronged with people eager
to congratulate her upon her acquittal.
The crowd at the Borden homestead
numbered 2000 and remained until after
midnight, a band playing Auld Lang
Syne, which created intense excitement.
Lizzie says she ia "the happiest woman
in the world."
THE HBATH TRIAL.
Intense Interest Developing — A Spat
Fresno, June 20.—Intense interest is
developing in the Heath trial. The
prosecution is still introducing evidence
of the immediate circumstances sur
rounding the death of McWhirter. A
tilt in court between Foote and Johnson
has aroused considerable public feeling.
Foote, speaking of the evidence of ex-
Policeman Welch, then on tbe stand,
I characterized it as the statement of a
cunning villain and perjured thief.
Johnson scored Foote for the language
used, and Foote responded in kind.
Judge Holmes admonished counsel to
observe due decorum, which Foote re
Officers F. F. Babcock and Thomaa
Welch testified to hearing shots and
screams, and went to the scene of the

Three Brothers of th» Deceased Trying
to Break It.
Stockton, June 20.—Another contest
has been commenced to obtain the estate
of Joseph McKinnev, a negro rancher
| who died at Banta in April, leaving
property worth $50,000. The contes
tants are three brothers of the deceased
who live in Louißville. One of them,
Dudley Bebree, a lawyer and federal
office-holder, is here to look after their
interosts. The will admittod to probate
leaves most of the property to relations
of Dr. Luce of Banta, who waß one of
the executors named, but the contes
tants allege that the deceased was af
fectionate toward his brothers, and if of
sonnd mind would have left his prop
erty to them. They charge that Dr.
Luce took McKinney to his home during
his last sickness and exercised undue
influence over him, leading him to make
a will three days before his death.

Br the Associated Press.
Menlo Park, Cal., June 21.—Senator
' Stanford died tonight at 12 o'clock. He
I passed away peacefully in hia sleep at
' his residence at Palo Alto.
HIS LAST DAT ON EARTH.
Senator Stanford was in the best of
; spirits yesterday (Tuesday). He took a
drive aronnd bis stock farm and seemed
: as well as ever. He retired shortly after
10 o'clock and about midnight hia valet
going into the governor's bedroom, dis
covered that he was dead.
THE SLEEP THAT KNOWS NO WAKING.
The senator looks perfectly natnral as
i he lies in bed, seeming from all appear
i ancea to be in a deep sleep. Stanford
i went out yesterday for a drive to San
' Carlos and around hia farm, and re
' turned late in the afternoon, apparently
in the best of health. Hia body will be
, AILING FOR SOME TIME.
l It had been evident for some time
' that Senator Stanford's demise was a
1 question of but a short time. His symp
| toms were apoplectic, and hia weight
. waa increasing alarmingly. There was
a stiffneaa about his limbs that made 10
--1 comotion an exceedingly difficult task.
His body was fast becoming too heavy
for his limbs to support. He could take
the very slightest exercise. Six months
[ ago the senator sent for Dr. Curtis of
' San Francisco.
I HEROIC TREATMENT.
The doctor prescribed heroic treat
