World's Fair Notes.
Chicago, June 28. Decidedly the best
things at the fair on Brooklyn day were
the speeches of Mayor Harrison and tho
reply of Editor McKelway, of Brooklyn,
especially the latter. Mayor Harrison
said at the banquet:
"I am the mayor of Chicago, an,d decid
edly the mayor ought to know how to get
here. While the city is always interesting
to me, yet I did not know where Music
hall was, but went to Festival hall and

lyn most heartily. We have heard that
Brooklyn had an Kagle. cheers. The
Brooklyn Eagle has pinions and claws.

especial charge We hope t hp Brooklyn

"You Brooklyiiite.s are really an ap
pendage of New York. You have been try
ing to get lid of Xi'vt York, but yon arc
an nppondnire to some extent. We, too,
have been trying to get away with New
York aiul we think we l.avo done it. They
pay that ;;4nius is not hing but audacity.
We ccrtainr, had the audacity and now
we have the f.iir. Emerson said 'hitch your
wagon to tar.' Every man should have,
his star. " :rsin Chicago is the white
star of perfection. We intend .to le not
the first tit y in America merely, but the
first city on the globe. This White City is
equalled by nothing on the wiio'p earth,
and those Tho miss t'.ie World's fair now
will never pec the like again."
Jifiieo of No Cmiscq ilclirc.
Mayor Ilivid A. Boody, of Brooklyn, fol
lowed, replying brielly and wittily to
Mayo- llarris-in's saliie-. 1 le said Brook
lyn was raiidy to ally herself with all the
gn at cine of the gb!o. and that he in
ferred that perhaps Chicago wished to en
ter i'.ito'matrimonial alliance with Brook
lvn in order to hamper and outstrip New
York. The matter of distance, he said,
would hardly prove a:i ohsivle in view of
t lie policy which Chicago was pursuing.
This r.iot a received with laughter.
McK"lwy Was Fully Loaded.
And tln ii Kditor McKelway proceeded to
open up with a regular oratorical Catling
gun. lie s lid:
"I wish io put myself right with the au
dience, as 1 am right with Mayor k'arrison.
Mayor Harrison said. 'Now if I attack
Brooklyn a little, you will not attack me
when you get home, will you?" I said. "X,
I will attack on right here.' All Brook
lyn knows that Brooklyn Heights is not a
vnerable Chicago bind". lie spoke of the
magniliccp.ee of the "Blac k" City outside of
the 'White City.' As if wc didn't know all
about thehlack city and use it for table
ware and ha. -ness dressing. He said that
the Brooklyn Eagle pocked at daws, but I
assure the mayor that the Eagle never
spoke with levity of the late senator from
Hirt ltoiiis AflVftiouatc Nature.
Tie said that the Chicago eagle looked
at the sun. but he forgot to add that the
sun looked the other way. The New York
Sun said this versatile mayor of this poly
glot municipality was the wickedest mayor
on the face of . the earth. - I believe, how
ever, that this is not strictly true. The all-

embracing and affectionate nature of the
mayor is shown by his admission that he
kissed the kids of the Infanta. Screaming
laughter. The magnitude of our own
municipality is only exceeded by the mod
esty of your mayor. In the day-time New
York is the workshop of Brooklyn. At
Bight New York, like Chicago, feeds on
her own vices."
Tribute to the Western Metropolis.
Thus much in the way of thrust for
thrust, and then the speaker declared that
any less occasion or smaller theatre
would have been inadequate for the meeting
of rrooK.yn ana umcago. Lnicago got 'tno
fair justly and Brooklyn never begrudged
it. "It came to you clean. You hare
magnificently vindicated your promises and
justified the confidence you challenged.
I do not say that New York city would
not have done so, but I do say that if New
Yorkers had been a unit for New York as
Chicagoans were a unit for Chicago, a
magnificent illustration of civic patriotism
would have bad two Illustration insteads of

FINALE OF THE COWBOY RACE.
Berry In First and Albright Second Bene
fits of the Contest.
World' Fair GroI'sus Chicago, June
28. The last stage of the great cowboy
race from Chadron, Neb., to Chicago was
entered opon at 10 o'clock Monday night
when John Berry left DeKalb, Ills., sixty
miles west of here, on "Poison," the horse
tbat came through all the way with him.
Interest in the finale was manifested at an
early hour yesterday morning when a
crowd of curious ones gathered at the
Thirty-third street entrance of Buffalo
Bill's Wild West Show, which according
to the stipulations of the eontest was made
the terminus of the ride. One of the earliest
arrivals was Mr. John G. Shortall, presi
dent of the Illinois Humane society, who
came on behalf of the society to see the
condtiion of the animals as they arrived.
One of the conditions in fact the prime
condition of the offer of S00 made by Buf
alo Bill to the winner was that the horse
or horses should show that they had not
been pressed beyond their capability to do
good work. Berry wns shortly followed by
Maj. Burke, press agent of the show, who
was at DeKalb to witness the departure of
the contestants upon the last stage of their
journey. Col. Cody and Nate Salsbury
were also present in the former's tent on
the ground, naturally deeply interested in
the result of the struggle. In addition to
these were numerous attaches of the show,
the Indians and cowboys, who felt an al
most personal interest in the contest.
The pal:ci:o 'of the watchers was not
put to m-lcli of a test, for at !:2. Berry
i:i-bed up to the entrance amidst a shout
of huzzas and dismounted in front of the
tent iu which the gentlemen named were
seated. The rider was, as might lie sup
posed, thoroughly fatigued and remained
in conversation with CoV.;el C"dv and
the olheTs oiiTy" fewrmoine'?ifs, while they
congratulated him upon his safe accom
plishment of the arduous task. Piloted by
Major Burke tlie weary hero of the hour
was given h breakfast and then a sleep.
Berry covered the last sixty miles in
eleven hours and twenty-live minutes,
"Poison" was examined by a veterinary
surgeon and found to be in excellent con
dition. - .
The next arrival, at 11:13, created more
excitement even than that of Berry. It
was Emmet Albright, with whom origi
nated the idea of the contest, who came in
on -Outlaw." He dashed up at a smart
gallop which he had maintained for the
last twenty-live of the thousand miles cov
ered, and dismounted at the sidewalk.
Beading his faititful animal Albright
walked through the gates and t the tent,
and was informed that that mode of en
trance would not do; ho must finish on
horseback, io remounting, when every
movement gave pain, he laced about, re
turned to the sidewalk, and then rode
through at the same fast gallop, reining
up bis horse sharply in the most approved
cowboy st vie.
, John Gillespie ami O. M. .Smith rodo into
camp about 1:H ), Gillespie being first. They
had arrived in the city'carlyin the morn
ing, but could not find their way to the
fair grounds as well as t hey could have
found a "bunch" of lost cattle on the
plains. Albright was the only one who
brou glit both horses in. Berry rode against
a protest, of the other riders, lieeause hav
ing lieen clerk oZ the race committee for
awhile he liccame acquainted with the
stopping places in advance.
Horsemen maintain that this r;tce has
licen of wonderful benefit to the west as
showing what western horses can do. The
performance of some of these animals has
been wonderful superior to anythiug ever
known ln-fore. John Berry, whose business
has made him an excellent judge of
distance, estimates that tho crooks
in the roads followed will make the
distance from Chadron to Chicago fuily
1,0 '0 miles. He was on the road just thir
teen days and sixteen hours. That means
that his horses have made a daily average
of seventy-three miles without suffering.
Enthusiastic horsemen see in this race
the opening of a new branch of commerce.
These horses which have shown that they
are litted for long, hard journeys are the
product of western plains, where the horse
must range for a living on bunch grass.
They are of good blood and their rearing
makesthem tough. Plainsmen say thatthis
race has leen in the nature of an exhibit
which will make the western horse the
cavalry horse of the world.
Notes of the Exposition.
The Missouri Press association was en
tertained at the Missouri building by the

GOT WHEELS ON HER HULL.
A Novel Boat That an Inventor Proposes
for I'ncle Sam.
Washington, June 28. One of the few
novel ideas that have come to light as the
result of the recent advertisement for
plans for a submarine naval boat Involves
the construction of a craft that can be
sunk by admitting a limited quantity of
water and will then run around on the
bottom of the ocean on wheels.
The inventors think that this boat can
move more directly in straight a path than
a boat subject to deflection by currents and
waves, and therefore claim for her the
ability to pick her position with accuracy
beneath the ironclad she wishes to des
troy. He has made provisions for reaching
the surface when desired by means of a
set of pumps to expel the water admitted
to the hull.
Complain of Discrimination.
Chicago, June 28. Seventeen big Chi
cago firms made a formal protest before
the meeting of the railroad and warehouse
commissioners that they were being un
justly discriminated against by the rail
roads to such an extent that merchants in
Indiana, Michigan, and Ohio were able to
compete with lower prices in goods shipped
to Illinois points, because of lower freight
rates than those accorded local merchants
from Chicago to Illinois points. The roads
accused of discriminating are the Chicago,
Milwaukee and St. Paul, the Chicago,
Burlington and Quincy, the Illinois Cen
tral, the Wabash, the Alton, the Chicago
and Northwestern, the Chicago and East
ern Illinn'4. and the Kock Island.
