A Race That Attracted Attention Through

SnEKrsiiEAi) Bay, June 25.— The great
event at Sheepshead Bay Track to-day was
the Salvator-Tenny match for SSOOO a side
with 810,000 added by the club. Both horses
carried 122 pounds; distance, a mile and a
This great event has been the chief topic
in racing circles for days past, and it drew
hundreds of people to the course to-day.
The weather was perfect and the crowd im
mense. Before the race the book-makers
posted odds of 3 to 5 against Salvator and 6
to 5 for Tenny, but the betting men held
off until finally one book-maker offered 7 to

rarty v. anted they fell on the
bookies in great haste. The pencilers
held out for a while longer, and then
cut the price to 65 to 100. Tenny's price
was lengthened to 13 to 10. When the bugle
sounded for the post, however, 7 to 5 could
be had against him. Garrison was upon
Tenny, and Murphy had the mount on
Salvator. There was no delay at the post.
They were sent away at once. Salvator
took the lead and made the pace a very fast
one. Passing the stand Salvator was half
» length In front of Tenny, and this lead he
increased to a length and a half on the up
per turn. As they reached the stretch Sal
vator drew away and was leading by nearly
three lengths. Then Garrison com
menced to ride, and under the whip
Tenny closed up the gap inch
by inch. On the last sixteenth
Tenny was gaining on Salvator, but Mur
phy managed to keep his head in front to
the wire, winning by the shortest of short
beads. Had the race been twenty yards
further Garrison's magnificent riding would
have lauded Tenny a winner. A wild shout
went up when the time was announced.
The record of 2.-0634 was beaten by one
and a half seconds, and the judges then
hoisted 2:05 as time. Fractional time is as
follows: First quarter, 25 seconds; half
mile, 0:4934; five furlongs, 1:02.4; three
quarters, 1:14*4; seven - eighths, 1:2754;
mile, 1:39.4; mile and an eighth, 1:52.4;
mile and a quarter, 2:05.
THE LOCAL INTEREST.
Awaiting the Result of llie Great Con
leal — Close Share.
The pool-rooms, as the hour for the de
cision of the race drew near, were thronged
with horsemen and race-coers interested in
the result. The betting was quite heavy ou
the race . and although all that there is really
Californian about Salvator is that J. B.
Haggin owns him, still the colt was chosen
as the best representative of the Pacific
Coast thoroughbreds, and any quantity of
"sympathy" money was bet on him. On
Tuesday the bookmakers put up the match
on their slates, and offered 4 to 5 Salvator,
even money, and 6 to 5 Tenny. At these
figures the money poured in so rapidly on
Salvator that he was cut to 3to 5. Yester
day morning the opening prices were: Sal
vator 1 to 2, Tenny 8 to 5; and the local
* post odds were: Salvator2tos, Tenny 9 to 5.
Saivator's supporters here felt quite elated
when the last stretch description was Sal
vator by three lengths, and when tho final
decision was "Salvator ins— by a head— a
short oue," a good many of the winner's
friends felt rather shaky in their boots,
fearing that the result might perhaps be
a dead heat. But soon the lime came in
and Saivator's victory was assured. But it
was a mighty close shave for all that. The
time made shows that Salvator was ridden
out fully, and that Murphy did not indulge
in his fatal predilection fur grand-stand
finishes and winning by a nose, just for a
gallery effect. Indeed, for Tenny, after
having three lengths the worst of it in the
stretch, to be beaten only by a short head
makes him almost fully Saivator's equal.
It is a question if Tenny's performance is
not the most meritorious, for good as Garri
son is over the shorter distances in a mile
and a quarter, the best judges consider
Murphy, to be at least superior hv ten
-rounds thau any other jockey. Taking
these facts into consideration, Teuuy's per
formance is a wonderful one.
Salvator is only Californian In being
owned by J. B. Haggin. The colt was born
in Kentucky and purchased by Haggin
when a yearling for, it was then reported,
$4500. lie has always raced in the East
ana has never sniffed California air. Nei
ther were his sire or dam ever owned by
HagKiu; and Isaac Murphy, his rider, also
ls certainly not a California production.

Slope. The banking firm of Haggin &
Tevis of San Francisco is well known in the
far West and Mr. Haggin is also interested
in the Anaconda copper mine in Montana.
He made his debut in the East at Jerome
Bark in 1888, winning several large stakes.
In 1888 he had one hundred horses in train
ing, three trainers, three first-class jockeys,
one " first-call" and an army of stable-boys,
but bis enormous expenses far exceeded his
winnings of SKW.OOO. Mr. Hoggin's mam
moth stock farm is situated in Fresno
County, Cal., and comprises, it is said, some
40,000 acres— almost the entire county. The
stallions at Bancho del Paso are a wonder
ful lot of richly bred race-horses— horses
that have made their mark on the turf and
proved themselves game and speedy racers.

Murphy is about the wealthiest jockey
this side the Atlantic. When the season
ends he weighs 115 pounds. He then goes
direct to his home at Lexington, Ky. He
is married to a very pretty octoroon, and
his home is one of a number of houses that
constitute half of the entire block, which is
owned by him and valued at 530,000. He
also owns a valuable stock farm near Lex
ington. He lives at Lexington during the
entire winter. Murphy starts in to reduce
his weight in April, and wastes from 140 to
115 by May. If the scale of weights had
not been raised it would have been likely
that this great jockey's racing days would
have soon been ended. Murphy is worth
Edward H. Garrison, the " Snapper," J.
B. Hoggin's first jockey, has a cosy resi
dence at 91 Sixth avenue, Brooklyn. He is
24 years of age and married to the daughter
of Joseph McMahcn, the race-horse owner.
Garrison is quite a "swell" jockey. He
dresses fashionably and wears a few choice
diamonds. His usual weight is about I'M
pounds, 'and he soon makes his regular
amount of flesh. Garrison's countenance
is not so drawn, sharp and weatherbeaten
as his brother jockeys', and on the street
he looks like a well-to-do student. He is
often seen in New York theaters and upon
the uptown streets.
The Tribune's Comice-i'!.
New York, June 28.— A Tribune cdi-
trrial says: The race between Salvator
and Tenny easily takes rank as one
of the most extraordinary performances
that has ever occurred on the American
race-track. Two horses could not be more
evenly matched, nor could a race
be more eveuly and hotly contested.
So close were the horses together
at the finish that only a few
inches separated them and hundreds of
Tenny's champions felt certain their favor
ite had won. The record was broken by this
match, the time of which was phenomenal.
No race for more than a score of years
aroused so much interest in anticipation;
none could be more exciting and inspiring
from start to finish.
Comments cf the New York Star.
New York, June 25.— The Star editori
' ally says: "Salvator covered himself with
glory again in his match with Tenny.
There has been no horse of his kind for
many years that could equal him as he
runs to-day. In form, in speed, in staying
powers and in all tho qualities that go tc
make up a great racer he stands prominent."
lie Telia What Be Bid nnd What He
Bight Have Done.
New ToitK, June 25.— "1t was one of the
hardest finishes I ever had," said Murphy
after the race. "Salvator is a great colt,
but I had all I could do to win. That little
horse is a real good oue. Such a burst of
speed be showed in the last sixteenth I
never saw equaled."
" A majority of the spectators appear un
der the impression you had little in hand at
the finish," said a reporter, "all up the
tack-stretch you were sitting perfectly still
while Garrison was riding hard."
"That's ail wrong," replied Murphy.
"Salvator was all out to the last
ounce. It is true I sat still for two
thirds journey, but was punching him with
spurs all the way. You saw how I had to
hustle in last sixteenth."
"Exception lias been taken to Garrison's
riding of Tenny by practical judges. They
think he-lay too far behind Salvator, and
that he should have kept within a ueck of
him," said the reporter.
"Suppose you had been on Tenny, with
your judgment of pace, would you have
lain behind as far as Garrison did?"
"It all depends on the instructions the
jockey receives. Garrison probably rode to
orders," answered Murphy. "If 1 received
directions I should do the same thing."
" Bui suppose you had been allowed to
follow your own judgment?"
"In that case I should have been head
and head with Salvator all the way, He

Boston, June 25. — Certain Massachu
setts members of the family of Andrew
Jackson Davis, who died in Butte, Mont,
last spring, have begun a contest in the Pro
bate Court for the possession of 57,500,000
left by deceased. Henry A. Boot, the most
interesting witness of the day, practiced law
in New York until three months ago, when
he became a citizen of Montana, briefly
for the purposes he said, of qualifying him
self to act as administrator of his uncle's
estate. An essential part of Boot's tes
timony was the account of conversa
tions between Erwin and himself in
February last. Ho said that Davis, who
applies to be appointed administrator of
8500,000 worth of property of deceased in
Massachusetts, visited bis uncle. Erwin
said to him, Andrew can never recover.
You aud Ellen and I are ths ones who
naturally ought to administer ou the estate.
We are the strongest minds of tho family,
and as far as what happens among
us is concerned, we will talk
about that hereafter. Thero is 54.000.000
of it. Diana, the oldest sister, don't need
anything but a house aud $12,000 or $la >,ooo.
I will give Lizzio Bowdern, another sister,
a bouse in Springfield and money
enough to live on." After making similar
remarks to other members of the family,
Davis continued, according to witness, "in
that way we can get them all oxceut Smith
(whose wife is a niece), and we will have to
law it out of him." Erwin also made an
astounding proposition regarding John
and bis son Andy, that they be invited to
New York, and Jonn be made so drunk that
he would fall off his chair, and then he
could be got to sign any paper wanted.
Witness also said that at this conversation
his uncle said: " There is a will and we are
left outside. We will break it." Boot went
out to Montana and look citiz nsbip there,
because there was no one but the public
administrators to look after business. The
hearing was adjourned until September.

Boston, Junc23.— Charles Foster, Presi
dent of the Boston Sugai lining Company,
and one of the Trustees of the Sugar Trust,
said regarding the Court of Appeals
decision. " I am not sure of finding the
decision correctly reported. I am dis
inclined to believe it. No matter
what the decision may be it will
not affect the busiuess of tbo
trust. They can't prevent us from making
money legitimately, If the court says we
are uot doing business legally, we shall re
organize into corporations and our business
will go on just the same."
New Yoi'.k, June 25.— .V Press editorial
says: "The decision iv the Sugar Trust
case is far reaching and important to all
trusts. It is a substantial and emphatic vic
tory of the people aud law over trusts."
The Evening Post charges that John C.
Sheehan, Secretary of the Aqueduct Com
mission mid brother of Bill Sheehan, Gov
ernor Hill's friend, offered to sell informa
tion concerning the Sugar Trust decision in
Hall street last Friday. He claimed to
have seen the decision, and offered the in
formation for cash or other consideration.
The Post says it is tho general belief that
Slieehau found a purchaser of ihe Informa
tion Friday night, and if close examination
is made of those who dumped sugar certi
ficates by the thousands Saturday morning,
the baser might possibly be ascertained.
The methods of the sellers wero criticized
because instead of peddling uut in small
lots, they jumped on certificates so savagely
that they reached stop orders and lost the

whom . were formerly prominent Mexican !
Government officials, were organizing and
marshaling their forces on the United

to invading; the States- of Coahuila
and Tauraulipas with a view
to creating a revolution. Reliable in

are located forty miles below Laredo ready
to cross into Mexico. Two troops of cav
alry have been ordered by the Mexican Gov
ernment from Neulo Laredo to the
scene of the expected trouble and are
now on their way. American troops from

Ingalls offered a resolution instructing the
Committee on Privileges and Elections to
inquire into the publication in the Becord
to-day of a personal explanation by Call
and report whether it is in accordance with
the rule, etc. This led to a sharp spat, in

The report of the Committee on Terri
tories being read, Vest opposed the bill. He
knew in the past States had been admitted
with small populations because of some
sectional or party exigencies, but none such
existed now. Wyoming, he said, has a
population of not over 00,000, scattered over
an immense area of nearly 7000 square
miles. Vest would uot vote for the auuiis
sion of Wyoming with its present Constitu- ,
tion permitting woman suffrage. Woman
suffrage was antagonistic to the spirit and
institutions of the American people. He
deplored the extension of suffrage to the
colored men in the South, and said no in
telligent man to-day would give it to them.
He himself would no more give them lhe
right of suffrage than he would give a
deadly weapon to a child. He certainly
would not give it to colored women, who
were far more impulsive aud thoughtless
thau the men. Another objection Vest
made to the Constitution of Wyoming was
that ii gave the right of holding properly to
Piatt said Wyoming bad as good a right
to admission as any Territory ever admit
ted. He was surprised that the gentlemen
devoted to " home rule" should not be will
lug to allow a Territory to decide the woman
suffrage question for Itself. Uo believed
the population of Wyoming to be nearer
125,000 than 100,000. In conclusion Piatt
spoke of the great resources of Wyoming,
and said that with irrigation it could sup
port 10,000,000 people.
At the close of Plait's remarks he made
an effort to have a vote taken on the bill,
but Vest objected and moved an amend

Large Quantity of Perishable Freight De
layed by Railroad Strikes.
Chicago, June From indications to
night it is feared that to-morrow every
railroad entering Chicago will be tied up,
and every carrying trade of the city be tied
up. . No final decision was reached at
the conference of the Illinois Central offi
cials this evening. It will be rendered
to-morrow at 10 o'clock, and on it depends
the whole ' issue. The Chairman ,of the
Grievance Committee is responsible for the
statement . that if . an agreement is not
reached, the Brotherhood Switchmen. will
call out the men on all the other roads.
These men • are entirely in sympathy with
the Illinois Central strikers and ready to go
out at a moment's notice.
There is danger, unless the strike Is soon
settled, that it will spread to - other roads.
The Big Four" road, which has a track
age arrangement with the Illinois * Central,
finding itself unable to get freight into tbe
city, made arrangement with the Chicago
and Eastern Illinois. Suspecting that the
Illinois Central was doing the same thing,
the Eastern Illinois men refused to handle
any of. the "Big Four" cars. This has
caused another block. ,
■ On the Illinois Central tracks large quan
tities of fruits and berries are side-tracked
at various points and are fast rotting. The
officials of the road have issued an order to
sell these goods as fast as possible. - Com
mittees of trainmen from several roads, In
cluding the : Chicago, Milwaukee and St,
Paul and the Chicago St. Paul and Kansas

ESDOR IN JAIL.
He Returns From Los Angeles
and Is Arrested*.
The So-Called Marriage Contract Found in
His Foßieision— Hs Wids Carrie
Henrici in the Sooth.
Henry Esdor, for whom the police have
been searching for several days, wag ar
rested last niglit at 501 Jones street by De
tective. Burke on a warrant charging him
with abduction. The complainant in tho
case is William Heurici, a young man who
is the brother of the girl the accused is
charged with abducting.
The prisoner, who claims to have been a
saw-mill-owner, about six years ago be
came acquainted with the Henrici family,
living at 1107 Eighteenth street, in this
city, consisting of Mrs. Henrici, a widow,
and three children— two girls and a boy.
It is charged that Esdor so ingratiated
himself into the confidences of the widow
that he obtained the greater portion
of her property valued at 810,000 and con
verted it to lii own use. Last January Mrs.
Henrici died and Esdor produced a will mak
ing him executor of her estate and guardian
of the children. A few months later a creditor
of the estate made complaint in the Superior
Court and a new administrator was ap
pointed. An uncle of the Henrici children
also became dissatisfied with Esdor's guar
dianship and caused his removal, the uncle
being substituted in his stead.
The new guardian had tbe children re
moved from the house where Esdor re
sided, but the latter induced two of them
to return to him. They were William, the
complainant in the felony case, and Carrie
Heurici, aged about 14 years. Matters ran
along smoothly under the latter ar
rangement until about two weeks
ago, when the brothei of the girl dis
covered that Esdpr's relations with the girl
weie closer than that of guardian. The
brother raised a scene, which Esdor en
deavored to prevent by producing a
marriage contract with Carrie. The
contract was of a one-sided character
however, being made out only by the girl,
and containing her acknowledgment of be
ing his wife. The alleged husband did not
put himself on record as her spouse nor did
he explain his failure to do so. The con
tract made out by the girl was found in the
prisoner's possession. It reads as follows:
To Mr. 11. J. Esdor— By the memory of my
mother and father 1 do say and promise to you
that 1 vow, love ana cherish you only, aud that I
always will be true and litiihiul to you, seeking
no excuses, and liud uo causes whatever, and will
be your wile only (or uot lie married at all) and
as such wit*- he loving, true and faithful to you,
and to listen to no oue, hot do as you tell me and
believe you only. All this I do promise and
agree from my own feellogs without fear or per
suasion. (JAKRIE E. ll i.m: i. i.
Snn Francisco, May 12, 1800. .
Young Henrici was not mollified by the
production of the so-called contract, but
vowed he would swear out a warrant for
the arrest of his ex-guardian, aud did so.
Esdor, however, took alarm, and
with the girl fled from the city.
Henrici thereupon swore out another
warrant for tho apprehension of his psuedo
brother-in-law on a charge of abduction.
Being out of the city, the police were un
able to serve the document, but the accused
returned here last Mouday night.
On Tuesday morning lie called at
the office of Mr. Hunter, Secretary
of the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty
to Children, with whom he had been for
merly employed. Esdor stated he had en
deavored to arrange matters satisfactorily
by again marrying the girl. Ho said
he had gone *. ith her to Los
Angeles and was there married . by
a minister named Wright. When asked
how he obtained a license, the girl being
then under age, he said that he had
consulted the County Clerk about the diffi
culty and was directed to have a guardian
appointed for the girl. This was done by
a certain gentleman in Los Angeles, and
the marriage was duly performed last Sat
urday. Esdor then concluded to return
here to face his troubles.and offered the mar
riage certificate in palliation of his offense.
He claims that Mr. Hunter showed the doc
ument to Police Judge Lawlor, who ordered
the warrants to be withdrawn and that the
Chief of Police instructed his officers ac
Tho accused was much surprised when
the officer arrested him last night. He is
about 35 years of age, and has a handsome
appearance. He denied the charges of ab
sorbing Mrs. Henrici'sproperty.audsaid the
only money he obtained from the widow was
$900 which lie borrowed and subsequently
repaid. He also denied the story that he
had never been divorced from his first wife,
and was therefore afraid to attach his name
to the " marriage contract." He claimed
he was divorced from his first wife twelve
years ago in the old District Court.
He left the girl, Carrie, in Los Angeles,
and when searched last night a letter from
her was found on him. It was of an affec
tionate nature, and expressed the wish that
he would be soon out of his troubles.
