Racing; in the liat Entries for

The beacon of legitimate racing In the
liaBt will be Inaugurated at Benning to
day, and the only thing needed to make
the opening meeting a great success is
good weather. There are plenty of horses
to contest for the -stake and purse events,
and the class of the ct-ntestants will be
first late. Thcgrand stand, clubhouse and
fences have all been newly painted and
the tender green of new turf and budding
trees will lend a beautiful and appropriate
setting to Hie spring bonnets and dresses
which Washington beauties will surely dis
play in honor of the poptdar jockey club.
The club has made a game uphill fight
ever since the first meeting under the
present management and every lover of
line horse flesh and pluck hopes for a de
gree of financial success commensurate
with the racing success that the efforts of
the "Washington Jockey Club have assured
for the spjlng meeting of 1897.
Nothing has been left undone. .Stake
events well worth winning by any stable
and liberal purses are offered to attract
the owners, white hurdle races and steeple
chases are plentifully interspersed to draw
the "Washington crowd, which, masculine
and feminine, can always be depended on
for plenty of good sporting blood.
It is a pity that the local authorities
in charge have assumed that tlie proper
time to fix the road leading to the race
track is immediately preceding the meet
ing. This assumption has induced them to
cover it with cartloads of soft earth dur
ing the pa.ut few days, and heavy driving,
with deep dust or deep mud to choose
between, according to the weather, will le
About hotel lobbies last night many of
the regulars were on hand. M attic Corbctt
and J. J. Maguire were at the Shoreham,
as was also Robert I'inkerton, whom the
Jockey Club employs to attend all meet

none of the public money gets into any
hands but the bookmakers' who are proi
crly entitled to it. George Whcelock, who
remembers Washington very well, since
he stood in the ring last fall and saw Tre

about i) o'clock and went to the Raleigh,
where M I)wyer arrived by a later train.
Doggett looks tanned and well and is
evidently at his usual professional weight.
Orlando Jones and Dave Gideon were ex

The meeting, which opens today, will
last until next Saturday, giving seven
days raciag. Each day there will be
run a stake event worth from $750 to
$1,200, and either a hurdle race or steeple

well-known sculptor, against Prank T.

the defendant's fon, Rudolph Kvans, came
up for trial before Justice O'Neill yesterday
The li faring developed tome unusual fea

From the 'testimony it appeared that
young Evans had at one time taken lessons
m sculpture' from Mr. Dunbar, for which
his father had paid in full.
Afterward," accoidlug to Sculptor Dun
bar, an agreement was enteied into by
which the young man should be practi
cally apprenticed' to him, and for the
first year the .sculptor was to leceive .$100.
the second year $30, and the ttiird year
his services should pay for the instruction
Mr. Dunbar said he placed all possible

receive pay, as he knew he needed tho
At one time lie said he helped him to
obtain a silting from Secretary Morton,
of tlie Agricultural Depaitmeut, for a
bust, for which he was well paid.
A year and a half after the beginning
of the iKiy's instruction, he said he re
quested him to perform some slight
service, which the boy refused to do.
He, thereupon, sent him home, and shortly
thereafter he presented his father with a
bill of instruction. This, Mr. Evans re
fused to pay.
Mr. Evans, in his own defense, stated
that tticre had never been a contruet by
which lie "was to pay for his sou's in
struction, and that he understood his sou's
services were to lie tlie only pay demanded
by the sculptor.
Young Evans told of his duties us helper
in the studio, and when questioned what
duty it was, he refused to perform, he said
that Sculptor Dunbar hnd requested him
to pose in the nude, which he refused to do.

Nine times in ten ill-health in women

Headaches, neuralgia, sleeplessness, nerv

cause. These things are serious, but they
can be cured. Any disease or weakness
of the female organism can be surely
and completely cured by the use of Dr.
Pierce's Favorite Prescription. Thou
sands of grateful women have testified to
its beneficial results. Among them Mrs.
Roscoe Vanover, of Robinson Creek, Pike
Co., Ky., who writes;
"I wish to express yay thanks to you for the
good I have received from your 'Favorite Pre

the 'Pavorite Prescription' was about four months
ago when my last baby .was born. I was afflicted
with 'child-bed fevef. Jn9tcad of sending after

In the 1 emote mining city of Circle City
on the frozen Upper Yukon.
There is the usual simplicity of gov
ernment In Circle City that prevails in
Tiontier mining camps, and police regula
tions and Federal authority arc both sadly
wanting. The matter was not dcrtnitely
decided at the ''abinet meeting, but it
is believed that the Secretary of War will
be instructed to establish a post at or
near Citcle City and garrison it with one
company, which will be in command of an
officer of higher rank than captain.
It is an interesUng fact incident to the
proposed military establishment in Alnsku
that the Dominion government lately dis
patched troops to the frontier of the North
west territory, opposite Circle City. Thus
small companies of troops of both nations
are on hand in case of any developments
relative to conflicting claims as to the in

ACQUITTAL OF JAMliS A. "FAIR ALL
Jury Convinced of His Innocence
Jn 11 Very Few Minutes.
James A. Fairall, who was indicted re
cently for embezzlement, was yesterday
acquitted in criminal court No. 1, before
Chief Justice Bingham, or the charge, the
Jury remaining out for a few minutes only.
Fairall was at the time of the alleged
embezzlement, iu the employ of Wilbert
Clary, a dealer in feed and flour, at the
corner of Fifteenth and L streets south
east. He had been In Mr. Clarj's service
for several years, it is stated, as a de
liverer of goods, and collector of bills.
Uis record was good, and until accused
by Mr. Clary, no charge affecting his In
tegrity hail ever been made, so far as the
Mr. Clary discovered, however, as he
thought, that the money on two bills
against, customers Messrs. BiiRherandJar-boe-had
been collected by Fairall, for
which no credit had been given, and he
dismissed the collector, but -without giv
ing a reason for his action.
Later on, however, Mr. Clary published
tho accusation and procured Fairall's in
dictment. The amountsof the two alleged
thefts were, respectively, $6.75 and .$5.
Fairall testified for himself, and as proof
that he had attempted no concealment, he
admitted tho collections and showed by his
bookd thnt he had charged himself with
the money on tho dates of payment. lie
swore ho had not only reported the collec
tions, but had paid over the money with
other collections, and that Mr. Clary had
simply neglected to give credit.
Fairall then proved by a number of mer
chants that they had respectively received
bills from Mr. Clary for goods already
paid for, the effect or which was to show
that his employer's books were not ac
