Navarre Was Second, Sir Walter Finishing Third. WEST AGAINST EAST. Clifford, Western Favorite, Sir Waiter the East's. Largest Crowd Ever Assembled for This Event. Gravesend Race Track, Brooklyn, May 15. A better day could not have been selected for the opening of the racing season in the east; for with the Bun roe not a cloud and the air was warm and clear. The Gravesend track was in perfect condition. The great Brooklyn handicap id the fourth ou the cardandshouid.be ruti shortly after 4 o'clock in the afternoon. Tuere was trouble among the army of men who go to the trac daily during the training season; for they were wiinout the usual free passes as the new jockey club had decided that pusses were to be issued only to those whose business obliged them to be at the track and the swarm of tents alleged jockeys and broken down Biorts had the fact staring them in the face that they would have to pay to see the racing. The city is full of western and south ern sporting men, who have come on to back the western horses, and curiously enough three of the favorites come from that section. Cliffori was the choice of a maj -rity from the "west and Sir Walter from the south. In former races there has been a large crowd of hangers on at the track, who were waiting to see how they could manage to lemain through the racing, but none of them were to be seen today. The guards were put on early, and the annoying touts, who have heretofore Bwurmni over the track to the disgust of the respectable race goers could not be seen. The grand stand was as clean as a new pin, and in the morning sunlight the grass looked like velvet. The Crowd lome Slowly. It was not until noon that there was even a decent showing of spectators iu the grand stand, and the arrivals up to that time had been slow; a new expe rience for the Jockey club, as heretofore at noon the seata had been well tilled. On the outside were hundreds who had had free access to the track, and they were trying in every way but paying to get admittance. Touts were halted at the entrance even after they had bought tickets and were told that they were not wanted in side. One new rule of the Jockey club was working in earnest to the great dis gust of those whom it affected. The absence of complimentary tickets for ladies also had its effect on the gen eral appearance of things and the grand stand was chiefly occupied by men, the abseuce of well dressed women being particularly noticeabla At 1:15 p. m. the trains began to come in at more frequent intervals and the grounds were tilling up. The horses were ready for the race. The track had been wet down and rolled, so that it was in prime condi tion. The owners of the candidates seem to be confident of winning, and each has his own particular idea as to when his horse is going to break the bars down. Taylor declares that they will have to beat 2:07 to get ahead of Sport, and says this horse is fit to run for his life. Doggett saya that he will win by three lengths with Sir Walter; and Foster de clares that Dr. Rice ia sure to carry off the money. The Clifford partisans are sure that they will win and Byron Mc . Clelland thinks Henry of Navarre is a winner. Taylor says Ajax has no chance whatever and that Clifford will quit as soon as the stretch is reached. And that is the way stories go. It is conceded the most open race since the handicap was lirst run and the record may go when the victor passes the line. The Udd Po.teI. From one o'clock on the attendance in creased rapidly, and it was not long be fore the grand stand was full of people as it could be. Nothing was left but standing room at 2 o'clock. The record of book-makers was broken for 112 weighed iu, the largest previous record being 109. Long before the time for posting the odds arrived, the betting ring was thronged so that the moving about was difficult, 'lhe book-makers began laying odds on the handicap as follows: Sir Walter 2V straight and even for place; Clifford 3,1 and even; Banquet 10 to 4; lon Alonzo 20 to 8; Dr. Bice 6 and 2; Herald 40 and 12; Ajax 8 and 3; Sport 12 and 4; Diablo 51) and 15; Comanche 40 and 10; Copyright 40 and 12; Biitzen 100 and 3o; Lowlander 40 and IS; Loan taka 00 and 20; Bassetlaw 30 and 12; Henry of Navarre 7 and 2. At 1:40 p. m. it was estimated that 30, OOt) spectators were preseut and the trains were coming in rapidly, adding largely to the number. The infield was filled with carriages and not an inch of pace was left along the rail. It was the largest crowd ever seen at the handicap. Air.

New Yokk, May 15. Howe & Hum mell, attorney's for Bookmaker DeLacey has given out the in forma' .km that there will be no races at Gravesend today. They have applied to Justice Walsh for a warrant for the arrest of Phillip J. Dwyer and others for conducting a lot tery on the grounds of the Brooklyn Jockey club The action is based upon the recent decision of Judge Pryor that the Ives law which permitted pool selling on the race tracks, was unconstitutional and the nature of special protection .to lotteries. De Lacey's move is in the interest of the bookmakers who were hard hit by the Pryor decision. Justice Walsh issued the warrant and an officer was sent at once for Graves end to serve it Later. Just before the first race was run an officer appeared at the Graves end track and notified President P. J. Dwyer that a warrant had been issued for his arrest and told him that he must appear before Justice Walsh in Brook lyn tomorrow morning to answer. No arrests of bookmakers was made.

The United States to Dm-ind Keparatloa for the Murder of Wilson. Bluefields, April 28. Via New Or leans, .May 15. Within 48 hours over 100 inhabitants, mostly Creoles have left this place for San Audreas and other is lands to await the result of the revolu tion, which appears imminent In all about 800 people have fled. Business is almost at a standstill. Min ister Baker's arrival here on the 27, on board the San Francisco, was hailed with delight There are today more than 150 Nicaraguan soldiers upon the bluffs. Their dismassal is constantly promised, but no sooner does one band leave than another springs up in its place. NICARAGUA MUST ME PUNISHED If She Docs Not Punish the Murderer of the American Wilson. New Yokk, May 15. The Herald's Washington dispatch says: The adminis tration has no intention of going to war with Nicaragua, but the murderer of the American, Wilson, in Bluefields must be punished, and proper indemnity given to the family of the dead man. This is the conclusion of the president After thorough investigation the authorities are satisfied that the killing of Mr. Wilson was noth ing short of a brutal murder, and that the Nicaraguan government has not dis played the proper spirit towards the United States in Beeing that the perpe trator is brought to justice. Before the president's departure on Saturday evening, additional instruc tions to Captain Watson and to Minister Baker, making certain positive demands upon Nicaragua for redressing the wrongs perpetrated upon American citi zens, were prepared. It is also under stood that Captain Watson has been in structed to laud a force of sailors and ma rines under certain contingencies. For the time being the question of control over the Mosquito territory is subordinate to that of reparation for the murder of Wilson. The administra tion wants this matter set tled quickly. If Nicaragua displays the proper spirit of the administration, it is believed, will do all it can consist ently to favor her complete sovereignty over the Mosquito coast, but until the whole matter can be settled through legitimate diplomatic methods the ad ministration will have only one purpose in view, and that is to fully protect Americans and American interests in Bluefields.

The hearing of the case against John Sherman San ders has been postponed until 4 p. m. United States Attorney Perry has been delayed by a small wreck and can't get here. Joseph Waters and W. C. Webb of To peka, are here to attend the case. David j Overmyer had not arrived this morning. ) Captain J. C. Waters in an interview j said: "We propose to try this ! case on its merits.

Balie : Waggener without auy desire of . justice ', got them off his line. We intend to make a manly defense and will win." Expect to Leave This Week. General Banders says ho expects to leave Leavenworth with his men the last of this week, but that he has no inten tion of going on foot. He was confident, he said, that the cases against the army - would' be dismissed, and then the journey eastward would be continued. He said that the people of Leavenworth need not have any fear on account of the presence, of the army in this vicinity. Tne men were as anxious to proceed on their mission as the people were to get rid of them. "We will only be here a short time after Uncle Sam gives us our liberty," he said, patting United States Marshal Neely on the back. .. Asked how he expected to Take his men away, General Sanders saia tnat a committee from the Trades' Union of Leavenworth was at work on a scheme to charter the "Belle of Brownville," a ferryboat that has been on the Missouri river from a time whereof the memory of man runneth not to the contrary. Ac commodations can be provided on the boat for about 400 men, and if the army should grow aud General Sanders ex- i ;- . . , I . . . K1 I. nun V. n KliiH nf pects it to do sp barges can be built at a small expense for the rest of the army. General Sanders proposes to pro ceed down the Missouri river to St Louis, thence down the Mis sissippi river to the Ohio, and from there up to Cincinnati. The gen eral expects to go over the Baltimore and Ohio railroad from Cincinnati to Wash ington. The "Belle of Brownville" is now owned by Captain James W. Mor gan. Captain Morgan is the man who was attacked by Benson, the murderer, while officiating as death watch to the latter in the Leavenworth county jail. He has a very through understanding of the Missouri river. Two of Them Locked Up. Two of "General" Sanders' men are locked up in the Leavenworth county jail. Their names are James Cunning ham and U. W. Concannon. These men became insubordinate, aud absolutely refusing to obey jthe orders of their "general" or of United States Mar shal Neely, the latter had them marched to the county jail and locked up. When Sheriff Rotheuberger asked for commit ment papers. Marshal Neely told him to hold them, as he had general charges to make against them. No restraint is placed around the camp of the industrials and they are allowed to visit the city at will. THE CAMP AT LEAVENWORTH. Sanders' Arrar Manifests Discontent at His Freqaent Absence. The Sanders army seems to be doing reasonably well in Leavenworth in spite of the fears of the men before they left here. Last evening's Standard says: "All day yesterday HJamp Sanders' drew almost as well as a circus. The Third street tablished a electric line, which has es- j will leed tnem anu tase mem to v.ney stopping. place near the enne. , camp, carried o.oOO passengers yester day and it is safe to assume that fully three-f Aurths of these saw the 'army.' It is estimated that fully 2,000 more either walked or drove to the camp. "Where Two Mile creek empties-into tho river and for some distance up the former stream the laud is flat and toler ably well shaded. A better spot for an industrial army camp couid not have been selected on the reserve. The river runs by it and Two Mde creek through it, making sanitary couduious excelleut The water used for drinking and cooking purposed is furnised by Martin Donovan under contract "The men are ferved with rations somewhat after the true army style. Marshal Neely furnishes the rations and officers distribute them. The food is all bought iu this city. Ice cream and pie are not included in the bill of fare, yet the boys seem to be doing pretty well on what they are getting. Asked what the "army" had for breakfast this morning one of the men said bacon and beans, coffee and bread. For the noon meal potatoes were added to the bill. "In camp the men seem contented, but there exists an under current of dissatis faction and unrest The leader, "Gen- eral" Sanders, is absent too much from among his men. Half of the time they don't know where he is or what he pur poses to do. They are "going it blind," as it were. At noon today the "general" had not put in his appearance at camp, and the " men were uneasy. Last night he put up at the National hotel. When . the reporter asked a number" of the men regarding the whereabouts of their leader they an swered by saying they had seen but lit tle of him since coming here. It was stated by some that he probably went to Topeka this morning. The "army" would be in much better spirits if "Gen." San ders would spend his time with them and keep them in touch one with the other. When he leaves camp and stays away so much of the time the men claim the same right to be absent also at will. "The. people -of Leavenworth are not mixing and sympathizing with the 'In dustrials' as the people did at Topeka. So strong were the bonds of sympathy being forged there, that a delay of an other day in the removal of the prisoners to this city would have been dangerous. Crowds of men and women visited them daily, and . carried flowers and good things to eat. The men were loaded into the cars and hustled off to Leavenworth before their sympathizers were apprised of their removal. While the camp wa-j thronged with visitors yesterday, there were no donations of cukes aud flowers. And again the visitors had just curiosity enough -to pass along and look at the camp and then go home. There is really nothing of Interest to be seen." MUsTLET Til EM GO. The "Botky Mountain tiv-w" on the San- drs Train Seizing Car. From the Denv" Xews. The arrest of Sanders and his indus trials by the United States marehitl was ; without proper authority; they had vio lated no United States law. If any offi cer of the Missouri Pacific made affidavit , that they had violated some .federal atat : ute he very probably committed perjury. Of course gome affidavit was made, or the clerk of the United States court would not have issued a warrant It probably charged them with obstructing ; the United States mails. Such a charge cauuot be sustained for j a moment Sanders took empty coal cars j for the ride. If mail trains were delayed, j it was because the company ditched en f gines and cars across the track to inter- L-i i nr anntc anil T - r i 11 11 t fin 1 1 j i r . uiaces for the same uurnose. There is not a question but that Sanders would have side-tracked at any station to allow the mail train to pass if it had been de sired. Those who obstructed the mail were the agents of the - Missouri Pacific company; aud thej' can't saddle that offense upon Sanders. It is doubtful If there is any state or federal law that meets the case. It is uot larceny, for the intent to steal the cars did not exist either when they were seized or at any time during the trip. They did intend to deprive the company of the use of them for a time; that is all; and that has never been larceny un- i , aiAu limb n a Yder anv statute. " So far as the Missouri Pacific cars are concerned, they were never taken out side of the company's line: nor off of its property; nor was it ever intended that they should be. In law it is precisely as though a stranger had entered anoth er man's pasture lot, aud jumped astride his bronco, should ride him around in the presence of the owner and against his loudest protest the intruder not intend- . 1 1 I J ' .1 3 . to take him outside the held at any time. There would not be the shadow of larceny in such an act. There would be a trespass, but only such a one as might be sued for in a civil action. It would not be a criminal trespass. There is not a provision in Colorado's statutes under which Sanders or his men could be pun ished; nor is there any in the federal statutes, unless it be that of obstructing the mails; and of that they are not guilty. WOULDN'T DESTROY PROPERTY. The Union Pacific Decides Not to Ditch Engine Etc., Green River, Wyo., May 15. On ad vice of President Clark it was decided here not to risk destruction of the Union Pacific's property in an attempt to check the industrials' train and the project to block Green River bridge with loaded cars and engines was abandoned. When the train arrived here 200 men strong at 3:15 a. m. Marshal Rankin with 20 deputies well armed, was waiting for him. As soon as the train stopped train master Hay jumped on the engine and ran it to the round house. The common wealers left the car3 and have gone into camp. Fires will be drawn from all en gines and the industrials kept here. HEALERS tiET UGLY. Two Hundred In Wyoming Drinking and Went to he Arret:eI. Green River, Wyo., May 15.

Shall 150,000 Men Eesume Their Toil, Or Are Gloomy Times Ahead in the Labor World. -Cleveland, May 15. The concensus of opinions among miners and operators today before the conference met, was that the result of the meeting would be naught. The conference convened at 2 o'clock in Case hall. '1 he scale commit tee of miner met in Bunk's hall at 10 o'clock and the operators assembled in conference at the Weddell House at 11 o'clock. Secretary McBride says that their motto is and will continue to be, "One for all, and all for one." If one section goes to work, all will go to work aud under no other conditions can the mines be operated. What is the coucern of one is the concern of all. The men felt that right aud justice are on their side and that defeat can come only as the result of treachery to themselves. The scale committee in its report, has endeavored to adjust difference in rates for mining in a manner to work" no in justice to the mines of one section as compared with another. The demand is for the wages paid before the reduc tions were made last fall and winter. How Peaanay Ivenii Minn Stand. The corridors at the Weddell house were thronged with the coal operators during the entire day until the con ference was called to order. Innumera blo caucuses and discussions were held, while the air was filled with rumors of every conceivable kind. The principal topic of interest during the morning was the probable attitude of the Pennsylvania operators. Mr Alex ander Dempstor of Pittsburg who tor many years had beeu the president of the big conferences between the miners and officers and who is regarded as one of the clearest headed and best posted men in the assemblage, was interviewed on this subject by a reporter of the Associated Press. Mr. Dempster will not be the president of this convention, and that fact is itself significant of the situation. "Will the Pennsylvania men go into the convention?" Mr. Dempster was asked. "Yes." "How long will they stay? "That I cannot say." "What is the attitude of the Pennsyl vania men today at the convention?" "Their attitude is the same us it always was. They have decided that they will not treat with Mr. McBride on auythiug like a national basis. Mr. McBride has declared that he will not abide by a de cision on any other grounds. Now then it is a question of what he will concede, if anything. He must concede some thing, or the convention will fail from the start." No Chance of Settlement. Mr. Osborn of the Osborn Coal com pany said: "There is no chance that I can see of anything like a like a settle ment of this question within a day or two at least. In fact I do not see how they can ever reach a settlement on any basis. A rumor that coal had fallen 50 cents a ton in Chicago today and that boats were bringing coal down the lakes, caused quite a stir among the operators at the Weddell. ' Had Not Met at 3 O'clock. The delegates to the conference of miners and operators were slow in gath ering at the convention hall and at 3 o'clock the meeting had not yet been called to order. OUTWITTING THE MINERS. Coal ltelnj; Brouglit From Foreign Land? to Supply the Deimnd. New Yobk, May 15. There have beeu 50,000 tons of England and Nova Scotia coal sold to arrive in New York, a por tion of which has already been shipped from Cardiff, Liverpool and Glasgow, and from Sidney, N. S. W. The cost is within 45 to 5) cents per ton of the ordi nary price of soft steamer coal delivered alongside New York. The bulk ojC this has been taken by the companies sup plying steamers to fill their contracts.' There are negotiations on foot for the purchase of 10 i.OOJ tons more to be de livered here between the first and tenth of June by the same parties foe the same purpose. From this fact it is in ferred that the companies intend fight ing the strike to the finish, lhe present low rates of ocean freights make it pos sible to bring coal from England in un limited quautities. Au agent of one of the leading coal companies, which supplies the foreign steamships with their coal for the return trips, and a member of the produce ex change, has bought much of the above purchases by cable, and say the rates of freight paid ou ttieiu consist only of the cost of loading and discharging the coal, and says they will continue to import coal until the strike is ended. Miff-rinj; at Irontburg, M l. Prostbckg, Md., May 15. The miners strike has alreudy had a depressing effect upon Frostburg. Fully 1,800 men in this aud surrounding towns are idle and a large number of families are on the verge of suffering. The miners claim they can control the situation in the face of some of the mines continu ing to work. They hold that a coal fam ine will raise the price of coal in the market and that this will restore the 50 cent rate. The Strike In Kentucky. Russellville, Ky.. May 15.
