Tho troubles and tnicasserlcs which

snap their tinner) at tho prdposed track
and assert that It cnuuot hurt tho Ivy

character ot the Washington meeting is
such that good horses will como huru in
Sir. Olmslead of the Jocky Club snvs
that tho Dwycrs talked some time ago of
starting u track in Now Jersey, but that
they have abandoned tho idea.
"Tlioro nro ton many tracks now,"
Mr. Ohnstcad says, "and tho Turf Con
gress Is going to meet In New York next
month to arrange so ns to avoid conflict
ing dates. Thoy havo just built a new
track at Westchester at a cost of nearly
a million dollars, and theio Is no need o'f
a now track.
"This track would not hint Ivy City
any way. Wo open the season of the
IJii8tcrn Circuit und closu it, as
the weather is too cold at thcee times for
the Northern trucks. Horses cannot bu
got Into condition so early for theso
"And in tho foil when .our races are
run, it is too cold -for theso Northern
tracks. Aud besides all the summer
resort seasons arc over and the hotels aro
closed. You can't have a race meetlug
without the people up thcro so late In
tho fall as tho middle of October.
"No, I don't think that tho Dwycrs aro
going to'start any now track up theio.
and if they did it wouldn't hurt tho Ivy
City racing any. Wo offer good purses
(there are but throe tracks whero larger
ones aie offered), and a lato fall track,
such us it is said tho Dwycrs intend to
start, is out of tho question."
-Mr. I 31. Dranoy stated that tho
Dwycrs could build tracks all over New
Jersey without hurling Washington. IIo
says tlio proposed Jersey track might
hurt tho New York tracks, but It would
bo too far removed from Washington to
hurt tho National Jockey Club.
3Ir. P. B. McGuiru said whon asked

Hu attacked him about It, and thu negro
whipped him severely, A crowd of

"Tho whites advanced to tho houso of
Frank 3Iaury; went to tho door and
called for tho negro, and they told him
ho was in the smokehouse. When ho
turned around the negroes fired on him,
putting buckshot in Ids nrm and shoul

wero nil picketed around the four houses
nnd fence corners, nnd almost surrounded
