them into the shaft. A grat deal of
work for the accomplishment of a certain
purpose was done by striking miners Sun

waited upon the tender of the shaft and, it
is reported, informed b.m that if he took
the imported negroes into the shaft his
home would be blown up with dynan.ite.

Progress at the Fair.
Chicago, Aug. 22. There has never
been a live stock exhibit on the American
continent equal to that which has opened
in the big pavillion at the south end of the

exhibit will embrace over 1,200 head of
horses and 1,000 head of cattle. Hon. R.

leading exhibitors of Clydesdale horses,
was seen in the Clydesdale barn: He said
he was looking forward to the live stock
exhibit with the deepest interest. "Sneak
ing of .Clydesdales," he continued, "I will
say that the exhibit which will be seen
here has never been approached on this
continent and rarely, if ever, equaled in
Great Britain, either in point of numbers
or excellence of animals.
"Of special interest to Americans will be
the great exhibits of the llussian and the
German governments, the former showing
Orlolf trotters and the latter the celebrated
coach horses of that country. The imperial
stud of his majesty the czar will be well
represented. There will also be seen fine
specimens of Knylish hackneys and Cleve
land bays, the latter being the celebrated
coach l;irse of Yorkshire. In short, the
lx-st representatives of all the equine fam
ilies will be here at this Columbian show
in such numbers as were never before wit
nessed. The opportunities for studying
and comparing the different breeds here
have-tie. er lieeu equaled."
