The Fact that there is a Law Against

News and Courier.
Active preliminary preparations at
Palmetto Park, the continued arrival
of race track devotees, the already
large strings of race horses now in
Quarters at the track, and the exp- ct
ed arrivals of mors horses in the next
few days, the buzz of ante-season gossip,
all indicate that unless something
unforeseen happens, the second annual
race meet of the Charlston Fair
and Racing Association will open on
January 25, as announced by the placards
posted in various parts of the
city, and in the show windows of va-?
rious business houses.
Keenest expectancy is evidenced on
every hand by the followers of the turf,
R who are already here, and the possibinH
ty that the meet may not be held
r seems not to be given serious consideration.
Whether there is any real hope
on the part of the promoters that the
legislature may take such favorable
action as would allow them to go
ahead with the meet under the law is
not known; nor is there anything
more definite than the gossip of the
streets to suggest the methods of procedure
which will be followed in the
event the legislature does nothing. The
^ racing people, the owners of horses
and others, have been told positively
that there will be racing; as to the
conditions under which it will be held
there is only speculation.
whii.o ;t ic not. known definitely, it
has been stated that there are more
horses here this season than last, the
number now being something over
six hundred. The only big stable here
last year and not here this year is that

there will be more of them than last

remodelling, it is stated, have been
going on and continue at Palmetto

have taken up quarters at the park.

Lieutenant Yancey's southern sweetheart,
Rose, is jealous of Elinor, a
northern girl, who is visiting her
aunt, Mary de Lane. This jealousy
is excited by an invitation from Mary
* to call and meet her neice. Yancey
visits the de Lane home and while
walking along the river with Elinor,
he shows her where the Confederate
Ironclad is being constructed. Elinor,
having strong Union sympathies, reveals
the location of the Ironclad to

and Yancey rides to give warning. The
Confederates are temporarily helpless
i as their powder is exhausted. Yancey,
knowing that a supply of ammunition
is loaded on a train in another location,
prepares to bring the needed
powder to his compatriots.
As the train is about to leave, a
Federal scouting party rides up and
opens fire. Rose and Yancey jump on
the engine and make a wild dash to

a distance, sees the fight and sets fire

While riding over the bridge the last
car catches fire. Yancey, -who has been
wounded, is left in the engine cab

train and succeds in cutting off the

The powder is delivered to the Iron'

battle wages between the Confederate
vessel and the Union gunboats.

Therefore, it was with some trepidation
that Eugene Walter, brilliant
dramatist though he is, approached
the task set for him. to bring out of
the book a stage June, that would appeal
as strongly to theatre-goers' as
the book June appealed to readers.
That Mr. Walter has accomplished
his task is evidenced already by the
approbation of the producers of the
