Tho fire covered a space of twenty acres and

moment it' hid leaped up to the beats and

that before the occupants of the grand stand
realized It the fire was upon them and they wero
forced to flee.
It was M;eral minutes before tho firemen

One of the Most Exciting Days in the His

New Yoek, May 15. A better day could not
havo been desired for tho opening of tho rac
ing season and tho running of the great
Brooklyn handicap, valued at 825,000, at tho
Gravesend track to-day. Tha sun rose with a
clear sky, bchlng tho promise of tho night bo
fore, and tho air was res clear as a bell and a
warm breezo swept across tho tract.
At 2 o'clock thero v cront least 30,000 peo
ple iasido tho gates and long lines extending
from tho box-offices, waiting for tho slow
ticket-takers to take their money. Thero
was a little excitement at that time, for Do
Lacy mndo his first move, an ofllcer appear
ing in tho club house with a summons to
appear boforu Justice Walsh in Brooklyn to
morrow in ansnerto a ebnrgo of conducting
a lotterj. Arrests had been expected, but
none wero made up to that time.
At that time the horses named for the first
race were hoisted on the bulletin board, and
the 112 bookmakers threo mora than tho
best on record began dialling up tho odds.
Out on tho lawn, when the race wits called,
there was a sen of heads, their owners packed
60 closely togetnerthat it looked like a solid
moss, and wero straggling to get oct of tbo
ring, where they could seo a small part of Iho
race. It was estimated then by good judges
that at least 40,003 people wero present, and
many wero returning homo, unablo to get
auj where near the track.
It was the biggest day in tho history of tho
Brookhn Jockey Club, and must bao been an
Immense mouej -getter, for nearly nil paid for
their oil mission, tho frca osss of former
tur hiulng been reduced by at least 75 per
ctut. Tho place was cronded with ladies,
not ono of whom got in without pajing.
Just before tho third raco was run D"Laecy
ng.nn made his nppearnnce. This time ho
wa3 in greater force, for Sheriff l!utthng,t itii
a host of djputics, came on with warrants
which were likely to take him the whole after
noon to serve. The sheriff and his deputies
went Into the judges' stand iuelosure and had
n talk with President Dwjer and Secretary
Mclntvre, but the two latter refused to state
tho object of the usit. It was npp irent. hon -aer,
immediately alter tlio rnee wis run, for
tLo judges. Col. .Simmons. Clarence McDowell
and Victor Smith, were arrested immediately
after they placed the horses on tho third race-,
and in corn pun with John M. ISowers, coun
silto the club, and Senator MeCartny were
driten to the town hall in Gravesend, whero
ball was given, and thev were released after
some delay had been caused to tho Brooklyn
Sheriff Buttling had other warrants, and it
was said that he intended to arrest the other
officials, but bo rested content v ith tho arre-t
of the three judges and went away Irom tho
track. An effort was made to discover the
character of theaMddxit on winch thu war
rants wero issued, but further than an un
oflle.al statement that it was for conducting a
lottery nothing was karncl. During tho
rest of the day thero was littlo excitement,
and tho races proceeded v. ltbout delay.
Aheutho time came for the handicap It
seemed impossible to get another person In
side the inclosurc. From ono end to tbo
other of the big grand stand men and women
wero paeked together like s inline, and not
more than one-ha'f of them could by any pos
sibility see anything of the ccutest."lliw Inwn

Miners Comcntion at Cleveland Wran
gles 0cr Admission of Delegates.
BEGAN IN A TANGLE OP TALK
Dempster Claims That the Call Was limed to
All Miners and Virtually Oave All Rep
resentation HcBride Oppoies Him and
Gets Ten Operators Excluded.
Cleveland, Ohio, May 15. The situation
among the miners and operators Just before tho
conference mot to-day was fully as complicated
as at any tlmo since the flrst call for the Cleve
land convention was made. Indeed, the nearer
the hour for the opening of the meeting ap
proochod the greater the complications ap
peared. One prominent Pennsylvania operator
"Thoy have already brought up subjects suffi
cient to keep tho conferenco In Bession a month."
The corridors at the Weddell House were
thronged with coal operators during the entire
day until the conference was called to order.
Innumerable caueuses and discussions were
hold, while tho air was filled with rumors of
every conceivable kind. Two Important meet
ings were held during the morning, and at noon
the members were still in session. They were
composed of Pennsylvania operators, some rep
resenting the river men exclusively and others
what are termed the "river and rait operators.
What agreement they may reach Is still
problematic. One of the many rumors that cir
culated about tho Weddell House during the
morning was that John McDride had had a con
ference with the river men on tho subject of a
compromise. Undoubtedly some such confer
ence was bad, but the result. If indeed result
there was, was kept sealed within tho breasts
cf the members.
Tho principal topic of interest during the
morning was the probahlo attitude ot the Pen
Mr Alexander IL Dempster, of Pittsburg, who
for many years has been the president of the
big conferences between operators and miners
and who is regarded as one of the clearest
headed and best-posted men In the assemblage,
was Interviewed on this subject by a representa
tive of the Associated Press
Mr. Dempster will not be the president of this
convention, however, and that fact is significant
of the situation
" ill tho Pennsylvania men go into the con
vention'" Mr. Dempster was asked.
"i es," was the reply.
"How long will they stay?"
"That, I can't Bay." ,
" hat Is tho attitude of the Pennsylvania men
to-day on the convention?"
"1 heir attitude Is the same as it has always
been. They havo decided that they will treat
with Mr Mc.'lrldeon anything like a national
basis. Mr Mcllrldehas declared that be will
not abide by n decision on any other ground
ow, then, it is a question of what be will con
cede, if anything. Ho must concede something
or tho convention will fall from the start "
"Do you think the convention will be able to
come to anything llko a harmonious agree
ment'" "It is impossible to say as to that until we get
into the convention. The situation at present Is
as complicated as could ho Imagined."
N hen the confereuco flnaLy assembled late in
tho nfteruoon it took but a short tlmo to precipi
tate the fight that was browing. An organiza
tion was effected by the election of J U. Zerbe,
an operator of this city, as president, and Pat
rick ticbrldo, of the miners' union, as secretary,
with Fronk Brooks, an operator of Columbus, as
A committee on credentials was appointed to
draft credentials ot all miners and oierators
who sought seats In the conference. Iho report
of the committee aroued a 6tormy discussion at
once They favor the seating of all tho miners,
nnd the operators from Ohio, Indiana, and est
Mrginla and all those from Pennsylvania, who
had expressed a willingness to abide bythode
c slon of the confereut e. The report, howe er,
whs against the seating of the ten Pittsborg
operators who bad declared that they woald not
abide by the decision of the majority.
A. IL Dempster led the fight in favor of giving
the kickers seats. He said the call for the con
f ei ence had boeu sent to all operators aud min
er aud they were entitled lo seats under the
I calL John ichride, president, and vico presi-

penses iucldent to the trip would bo paid.
When tho news was given to Coxey that tha
provisions had arrived, Browno asked whero

MILLER SUSTAINS THE JURY
Motion for a New Trial of Common
weal Leaders Is Overruled.
TO BE SENTENCED TO-MORROW
Ex-District Attorney Lipscomb Makes a
Strong Argument for the Trio Birnej'i
Speech to the Jury Declared Inflamma
tory Lafo Fence to Apply for a Writ.
Tho trio of commonweal leaders, Jacob 3.
Coxey, JIarshal Carl Browne, and Christopher
Columbus Jones, met with another rebuff In
tho police court yesterday. After four hours,
spent In arguments en the motion for a new
trial, Judge MUler overruled the motion and
notified tho defendants to appear Thursday
Andrew A. Lipscomb, ex-Assistant District
Attorney, made the principal argument. The
first point raised was the alleged unconstitu
tionality of the act under which the arrests
were made, Mr. Lipscomb declaring it an
abridgement of the right to peaceably assem
ble and petition tho government. His next
point was that tho new Information Mod
against tho men was unsupported by affi
davit. The first information was so sup
ported, but thu second lacked that legal re
quirement. In every place where criminal
law prevailed the Information must be sup
ported on the oatn of the prosecutor, pros
ecuting witness or prosecuting attorney. The
remarks of District Attorney Birney to the
jury were next criticised.
The sriecbof the District Attorney," de
clared Jlr. Lipscomb, "was inflammatory,
exciting, and prejudicial. It was intended to
arouse, and successfully, too, the prejudice
and passion of the jury, divert their attention
from tho true facts, and inllamo them against
the defendants. I: caused them to render a
biased and unjust verdict against the defend
ants. He had no right to call attention to the
personal appearance of defendants, as was
done.orto cali any of them 'fakir,"charlatan
or 'mountebank,' "whodresses up in ridiculous
garments and exhibiting himself to carious
multitudes at 10 cents a head,' the language
used by the District Attorney. He had no
right to say he wished tho defendants could
be punished for some offense other than that
for which arraigned. He referred to matters
not In evidence, that transpired before the
jary was impaneled."
This precipitated a long discussion, in
which the court, the prosecution, and the
counsel for the defense took part.
In rendering his opinion Judge Miller held
that tho point of misconduct of the District
Attorney was witnout proof. "Xo improper
influences." said the court, "were brought to
bear. Fear certainly had no place; the case
wa3 tried impartially, and the verdict Is the
result of honest opinions. The jury consisted
of neither fools, hypocrites, nor cowarls, bnt
representative business men. I can't see why
the verdict should be set aside, and the mo
tion is therefore overruled."
Jlr. Fence immediately reserved his objec
tions, and gave notice that he would apply to
the District supreme court for a writ of cer
tiorari to restrain the police court from exer
cising jurisdiction in the premises. The writ
will also ask that the United States marshal be
restrained from obeying the order of the
The defendants were notified to appear la
court Thursday morning to receive sentence.
