In your issue ol Friday last you refir to the
fact that certain resolutions a 'opted by the
last General Conference are being used ex
tensively In certain quartirs with a view, ap
parently, to give the impression that Metho
dists are somehow bound by them to vote
with tho Prohibition party.
I suppose that resolutions reported Irom a
Committee on Temcrtice, or auy other sub
ject, to the General Coulerenco, and adopted
by tlmt body, aio entitled to respectful con
sideration; but it eermlnly ought to be un
derstood tba', they are no partol the statutory
laws of the Chnrch, and In no tense "rules ol
tho Church," and are binding on the eon
sciences of those only who vote for them.
Kfcry one who knows anything of so called
deliberate bodies understands how. In the
last days of a protracted scs'ion, resolutions
of all sorts are rushed through, with little or
noconsidention, and utterly disregardi d olten
by those who vote for them. Tor yesrs pat
the Cincinnati Conference, lor inUncc, has
been fu the habit of adopting strong resolu

our leading ministers do not consider them
selves bound by such resolutions at least
they do not obey them.
Ilut the repcrt of tho committee on tem
perance, adopted hy tho Inst General
Conference, distinctly disclaims any intention
"lo dictate to our people as to their
party affiliations" how then tan it bind
"every loyal Methodist ' to vote with the
Prohibition party? As Methodists we arc
willing to concede that we hare a pretty
strong ecclesiastical government, but we have
never understood before that It went to the
length of telling us how we must vote.

all tended in their information to show that
the ex-President, whose temperance princi

mitted a building located upon a portion of
this prorierty to lie used as it liquor saloon ;
that he received a higher rental Irom the

sequently have never received any rcutal rnm

which it Is reported Mr. Ilajcs earned to te
sold at once when Ihe occupancy ot the saloon
was made public, we copy, by permission, the
lollowing extract from a personal letter re
ceived from General Buckland In answer to
an inquiry regarding this matter: ' Oa May
18, 1885, the realestato agents wrpte to me
that they thought th-y could sell tbe lot (or
$12,000 or $13,000. On receipt of this letter,
Mr. Hayes being absent from home, I imme
diately answered, authorizing them to sell tbe
lot at the Utter figure if that was the hel
they could do. On the 2Mb ot May they
wrote me enclosing a deid for execution, con
sideration $13,000. Mr. Hayes had nothin
to do with the ncgotiatiocs and knew noth
ing of tbem until after I bad authorized tbe
sale. I never knew that there was a saloon
on the lot notil I saw the publlcttionson the
subject In the newspapers, whith was not
until alter I had authorized the sale of
the lot," Gen. Buckland also writes tint
Mr. Hayes never bad the slightest intimation
that there was a liquor siloon upon the
ground In question, and that thebuilling was
never owned by the ex-President, thus ellec
ually disposing of tho statements that Mr.
Hayes was "well aware of tbe nature of the
business being carried on there," and ttat lie
"several times increased the nntof his ten

ure to us to earefully Investigate and learn

Springfield's obsennncc ol July lib central
lied Itsell nt the Fair Grounds, where the
"great Mbldleton & I'mrry aggregation" lull
forth. For the last two months itpringfield
and surrounding cities has been made n via re,
by torrents of printer's luk, that these two
gentlemen wero working up a big demon'lra"
tiol for tbe Fourth, nnd it materialized jes-
lerday In "all Its glory ol fnlurnnlia." What
cur may hnc lieen the merits of tho show
nnd they wero of no mean order
it wa3 worlh tho price of ndniitsion to see tin
crowd, Mr. I,, II. Sprngtie, tho vetrnn sec
retary ot the Clatk County Agricultural Po
ciely, said that the crowd was Ihe largest that
had o er assembled for any purpose on the Fair
Grounds. F.tpcrts in siting up Urge gather
ings vary in their istlmateso! the Attendance,
the figures ranging Irom 5000 to 8000,and one
enthusiast gac bis opinion that thero were
11,000 on the grounds at I o'clock. It cer
tainly seemed as it the very nir had blos
somed Into people. From ten o'clock lu the
loreroon until 4 o'clock p. in, they poured
Into the grounds in street cars, hacks, priato
conveyances of every character and on foot
by thousands. The Assemblage nt tbe race
course during the afternoon wns majestic In
Its vastness. It wns n veritable sen of
Tbe programme of cxcrci'cs nt the Fair
Giound began at 10 o'clock a. m. with an ex
hibition of tight-roiie walking by Prol. John
l.eon, ol this city. Although handicapped
by the fact that be used a small rope Instcal
of the Inchnnd-a-hnlf cable customarily em
ployed by performers of that class, and that
tho Ines between which the rope wns
stretched were impriperly trimmed and tbe
boughs interfered, Leon gave a very nervy
nnd creditable performance. He Is a Hpring
fiell boy, and this is his first appenrnnee on
the roo for two years. He was compelled
to cut his pertoruiatice short to give way to
other attractions. I.eon is nn intrepid young
fellow, and is now having a hot air balloon
manufactured In Chlrngo, with which he In
tends resuming his old calling ul in iking u--c
ension. He will nee er lc satisfied until he
breaks his neck.
The crowd now rushed pell-mell to tbe
race course, where the remaining fcitnres of
the forenoon's programmo occurred. Tli
pony hurdle race, hall mile dash, was first in
order and proved fairly interesting. The
judges were Me-srs. Frank Grove, John Mou
ahan and L. B. Spragtie. There were fhe
entries ltuseH's b. h. "Billy" and bis b. li.
"N'g; ' lloljrt's s. m.' Fannie II.;" Burnett's
b. s. "Billy .S.,"and Claik's g. g. "Jack Itab
bit." "Billy S." was awarded the pole. On
tho first heat tbe horses got oh" well
together in a bunch on the first attempt, nnd
t',ok the first hurdle nicely. At the quarter
pole "Nig" bolted and was left far behind. At
this point ' Billy S" took the lead and main
tained it to the end with thegrny and "Billy"
neck anl neck lor second. On tho home
stretch "Tannic B" took the hurdle livlly,
and threw her rider under her feel, but the
nimble joungstcr wasunhuit. The hor.-es
pas'id under the wire with "Billy H ' in the
lead by three lengths, the black second and
the "llibbil" third. Tho result of the
heat wns rather n surprise to the crowd with
whom "Fannie II" had bfen n distinct favoi
lle. Tbe second heat was n precise counter
part of tbe first, even to tbe bolting of the
inevitable "Nig," aud tbe horses e.tme down
ihe strctrh in precisely the sumo order.
"Billy S" was declared the winner of tbe
race. No time wns taken in either hea, but
it wns not fast.
Miss Nellie Burke next appeared, riding
her favorite charger, "Charlie Boll," for a
race with her greyhounds, n novelty never
licfbre witnessed In Springfield. At the word,
the strnnge caravan gut oir together, the dogs
in full cry, and the entire cavalcade raising a
tremendous cloud of dust. As they pased
the quarter-pole tbe larger portion of the
pack, notably the younger dogs, fell behind,
but ' Commander," n magnificent black
hound, cli'an-limbed and graceful, was seen
t-j be neck and neck wit", tbe horse, both ani
mals dclng their best, urged by tbe voice of
Miss Burke. As they shot down the home
stretch the horse poked bis noe cut n Irille
and won the race by a few inches, but th tail
of the dog certainly went under the wire be
fore the tall of the horse.
During this rnce, the plitform that bad
been built next to the judges stand for Mas
ter Edgar Williams' exhibition of roller
skating gave way with a crash Irom the
weight of people on It, nnd precipitated fcev
eral dozen jieople to the ground. Although
several wero bru'sod and scratched up, no
isily was severely injured. Twice during
the remainder of the day, this platform gave
way and allowed its human burden to bump
collectively against the ground, but Ihe
crowd apparently failed to profit by exper
ience, and swarmed upon it just the sirae.
It was a miracle that someone was rotstr
At Intervals between the races, there was
excellent music by the Big Six, nnd da)ligbt
fireworks, which letter feature worked lo
far better adiantage than on last Fourth,
and were altogether commendable. Some or
tho designs into which tho bombs burst
in mid-air, were really Imposing.
The last act of the forenoon was n drag
fox ehase. Mr. E. 0. Middleton droe slowly
nbout the enclosure within the track, drag,
glog n lox.pelt over the grass. Ten fox
hounds belonging to W. H. I.ytle, ot Soulh
Charleston, and Win. Minturu, of West Jef
ferson, were then turned loose, and Immedi
ntely struck the trail in full cry and followed
It through Its Intricate turns and twists for
sime diitanre. Then finally lost it Lowerer
in tbe crowd.
It being now high noon the avcinbUgc
betook itself to the shade In the cenlial putts
of tbe grounds, and ate dinner in basket
picnic stjle, with keen relish nnd eijoyment.
The various stands and bootLs did a rattling
trade and In a display ball dancing was kept
up continuously, notwithstanding 'he Intense
If the crowd had been large during ihe
forenoon, it is dillicult to filly describe ihe
aisemblage of people that broiled under ihe

tries I'hll. N. Myers, of CoWngton Ky.,
and George I Beech, of l.atonla Springs, Ky.,
both niemtiers of the Kenton Wheel Club,
of Coeington, Ky.jand J. II. Ilowertnaster,
of Xeids. The latter won second prlr.e at
Dayton In '83 and Is rtcognlred as a speedy
rider. Young Myets Is the fastest man In bis
club, nnd wears a medal as five-mile chain
p'oti. Ills club ran up from Covington to
Yellow Springs to spend the Fourth n pleas
nnt lillle jaunt ot sixty-two mites nnd Myers
followed them this morning. Hearing of tbe
race here, he concluded thnt ho wanted a digit
in the pastry and rode over. While here, b
was the guesl, as was also Beach, of Mr.
George Tcrkln-, the journalist, who is his
brotbcr-ln-law. Young Myers is slight In
build but has muscles like steel and Ike Ideal
slispe for a speedy bicycler.
The wheelmen got off well together with
tho exception of llecch, who set out unhap
pily and soon fell far behind. The butly
Howermnstor forged nhead at the outset, nnd
managed to keep his place until the three
quarter pile was reached, when after a sharp
struggle, llttlo Myers wrested tbe lead from
him, and Balled down the home-stretch, an
easy winner by four lengths. Time, 3.32.

Several races of the Nellie Iiurke series fol
lowing. The Roman standing race was nn
cuiting feature albeit painrully "clrcusy."
The jocke-s wore orange and blue and red
and black respectively, nnd raced around the
ring standing rrect with a foot on cither
horse. A hurdle race between "Marvio 11.,"
a magnificent animal of tbe Longfellow fam
ily, and a buy Selh," two animnls of Miss
Burke's stud, was exciting, but resulted most
unaccountably in the defeat of the I.ongfel
Tho half-mile foot race came next. In
this, there were but two entries, Daniel Chase,
ol this city, aged twenty-five years, six feet
high, and neighing 141 jiounds; he Is the
winner of n twuity-mlle "go-ns-you-please"
nt the Central Rink in 1883; El Gallaghfr,
or Springfield, aged twenty-four, fno feet
eight inches In height, weight 125 pounds,
and this wns bis first race. At llie word
Gallagher sprang three poles in the lead ot
his opponent, and, widening the breech at
overy jump, came down the stretch nn easy
winner. Time, 2:12.
Miss Burke again nppearcd in a rac against
the hounds, and this time tbe sleek nnd
graceful dog, "Commander," came in winner
by four lengths, amid decided applause from
the audience. "Commander" is one of the
fastest running dogs in tbe country.
During these rnces members of the Spring
field Shooting Club gave an exhibition clay
pigeon match in the ring enclosure. The
conditions of the contest were twenty birds
ten singles nnd five pair of doubles each,
but the "pigeons" ran out during the double
bird shoot, and tbe match came to n sudden
conclusion. On ibis account the prizes were
not awarded. The failure of the management
to proiidcn sufficient nu-nber of birds is
sharply criticised by the "gunsters." The

One ol the most spirited nnd exciting fea
tures of the afternoon nnd one that bore the
stamp of genuineness, was the ra:e by rider
"TelS horses. In this there were three starters,
Miss Burke leading as a "coach," mounted on
a bay. The animals entered into the race
with an impetuosity that was admirable and
strove each to their utmost to win the race.
It was a beautiful exhibition of the
speed powers of tbe horse,
untrammelled by rider and uncontrolled by
the pool-box. The half-mile dash was made
in 58 seconds, which Is regarded as excellent
A trick mule furnished the next bit of di
version. The animal was borrowed from tbe
Citizens' Street Railway Co. for the occasion.
A colored citizen with some nerve and a very
brunette complexion undertook to ride the
fiery Bucephalus, but the crowd thronged so
thickly on tbe track that tbe mule didn't
have room to liuccpb. hardly any, and tbe
exhibition fell flat. So did tbe negro at the
The greased pig race was the only com.
plelo fizzle of the day. It is difficult to say
which was the biggest hog, the poor porker
that was up for show, or tbe public that
crowded on to tbe track as thickly as hairs
on a dog, and took up all the room aallable.
Tbe Roman chariot race, coming next, was
pre-eminently, the leature of the day, anl
aroused Intense excitement. Tbe chaiiotl
were two in number and were drawn by
four horses abreast. Miss Iiurke dri vs oie
team, while a gentleman member ol 1 tr c jm,
pany handled the reins over the o'ber, At
the word go, the two got off near' y abreast
nnd went thundering magnificently down the
track amidst a cloud of dust. As the char
lots turned tbe sharp curves of tbe course,
their momentum caused a wheel of each to
leave tbe track and both spun around at
argles that caused tbe spectators to hold
their breath. The beating ol the thirty-two
hoofs sounded like the roar of thunder, as tbe
horses leajo-d forward in powerful union,
with quivering nostrils, distended eyes and
pantiug ehests tbe chariots seemeing barely to
touch the ground. The race was won by
Mi,s Burke In 5'J seconds, half mile dash.
Tbe rain now began falling In torrents and
the cloeing race feature, tbe Indian chase (or
a bride was omitted. In tbe teeth of the
s'orm, however, Dr. John Rankin, of this
city, tie winner ol tbe Ballard rifle offered
by the Springfield shooting club in last sea
son's series of mttcbes, did som ) excellent
glass ball shooting. He used a 22 calibre gun,
with short cartridges. Owing to tbe
inclemency ol tbe weather, Mr. Rankin was
uuabie to do some of his best fancy work
notably glass ball shooting on a bicycle, but

The game was an cx.-cllint one ror nmaleuts,

when n man ran to third bite he was com

so. Newton Sleek umpired impartially, but
some of bis decisions on base-ptajs nrnused
illssatislaclion. The Eist street Imvs did tlm

series of errors in the filth allowed the
MaUtahtes to score eight runs and
decided the game. But seven innings were

In tlio City.
It's nil over now and the morr.Ingsun
finds the weary city silent and "eeery thing
asleep but the butter." The morning trains
brought in thousands of strangers from tho
neighboring towns and took out almost as
many Springfielder's to Dayton, Yellow
Springs and other tillages to spend a quiet
day in tho country. Duritg the morning
everybody was on the streets, and the swel
teringcrowd, the martial music of the parade,
the Hying limners, tho bolnlny costumes, the
choking dust, all combined to gho tbe day
the regulation Fourth of July appearance.
The Knights of St. George gato n small
parade to advertise their picnic nt
Spence's Grove, but further thin this
there was no demonstration in tbe
city. The din nnd racket ol fire-crackers
and torpedoes was kept up stindily from day
light until noon, by which time most of the
crowd had vaoishel westward toward the
The sharp shower late in the afternoon
cooled the air and made thu evening too
tempting to stny withlndcors. This, added
to thu fact that it wns Saturday night, brought
immense crowds again onto tho streets, aud
the sidewalks about the center of town were
jammed until 10 o'clock. The irrepressible
racket of explosives wis kept tip at a lively
rate, nnd a few enterpria ng merchants
brought crowds nbout their doors by
sending up n few rather lonesome
sky rockets, but there way nowhere a dis
play of "reworks worthy of tho name, except
in Iront of Stewart's on LJmestone street, and
that was entirely Impromptu and uninten
tional. Tbe streets began to thin out about
ten o'clock and by midnight only an occa
sional tirccrncker or tipsy night hawk was
left to break tbe jieaceful quiet. All that is
now left of yesterday's excitement are the
the smouldering and cbnred remains of the
explosionT, with which the s'rects about tho
cent Jo! town are strewn.

The large crowds that usually throng this
tural summer resort on the Fourth, were not
diminished to-day. Large excuislons eame
from Dayton, Springfield and Xenla. Tbe
old Nell building was utillzd for dancing by
the Dayton crowd in which those disposed.
and there were many, joined. The Yelluw
Springs House was througed with guests, who
evidently appreciated Mr. Grove's effort to
make tbe day one of sp-eial enjoyment for
tbe city visitors, i'lcknlcking parlies filled
the Nelf grounds and enjoyed the occasion
every one according lo inclination. The
great crowds began to move for home as early
as 5 o'clock p. m.. after which hour the surg
ing masses diminished. As tbe Springfield
train lelt tbe grounds of the Yellow Springs
House were being handsomely Illuminated
with Chinese lanterns, und many people re
malned for the orening.
