SEUPESHnAD BAY. Jaun 20.-The Suburban handleap of 1898 was a most grievous dis appointment to the turt loving publio. Lamplighter, who was looked upon as a sure victor, was made to fll from his high pedestal. He was vanquished strictly on his merits, as the race was fairly ran from beginning to end. Lowlander, by Low land Chief, dam. Restless, won the'rtao ftom end to end. He set the pane alnmost to suit himeelf and won as he pleased in the feet tiae of 2:06 8-5 for the mile and a quarter. Teri ler was second, three-quar ters of a length away, while Lamplighter was third, four lengths behind. 'Lowlander was a ten to one shot in the betting and all kinds of prices could be obtained on Terrifer. Lamplighter was at even money. The raee *ia worth $18,000 to the winner, $8.000 to the second and $2,000 to the third. The winner is owned by Bookmake. Fred Rowe. who, besides the rieh stake, netted many thousands in bets. The day opened oppressively hot, but the weather did not keep the crowd away, for ftlly 20,000 wele on she grounds when the first race was called, and people kept com ing till the time set for the suburban. Even the saeident which kept Tammanuy in the etrble and robbed the publie of the giant battle it had expected between him and Lamplighter could net materially de tract from the gala day. But when the saddling bell rung there seased searee a ,race unoorupied. Then the fyers came oat, stripped for the parade, and well worth the craning of necks to see. There was Lamplighter, the favo.ite, with depth of ari th, well-knit mausoles, strong back and sho t strong lege, fine as a fiddle, anx ione to retrieve his failure in the Brooklyn handioap. But he wa; not the only one the spectators approved of. There wag Banquet, who ran a mile and a quarter on the straight at Monmouth in 1890, with 108 pounds up; in 2:08%. He was only three yenarold thea. That king of sprinters.Dr. Hasbrouck, was as likely looking as any. As Pessara pranced up in front of the stand, it was said probiibly this was another of the Campbell surprises. Then same Mars to uphold the honor of the Morris stable in the absence of Russell, who beas a bad leg. Lowlander and Ter rifler were not partioaulrly attractive to the crowd, who seemed to believe their chances for winning were slim. The Eng lish hose Iddlesleigh came in for consid erable comment. Be is a big, long rangy chestnut and a fair racehorse. The Pepper looked formidable and had many friends. The betting ring was the most animated place for everybody anxious to beat on the great event. Lamplighter was an even money favorite, Banquet next in demand at four to one, while Mars, Lowlander and Pes.ara were at tens. Twelves could be obtained on Dr. Hasbreouek and The Pep rer and sixties on 'Terrifier and the English horse Iddlesleigh. An immense amount was wagered on the result and most of it remained with the bookies. The rae6 was set for 4:50 and after sev eral breaks the fla dropped to a good start, with Dr. Hasbrouok in the lead and the others in line close behind. Lowlander soon took the lead, with Terrifler and Iddealeigh second and third respectively. Hasbrouek and Lamplighter followed the othe:s bunch close behind. In the middle of the baek stretch Lewlander and the leaders drew away from Lamplighteo and the rear bunch. At the head of the baeek stretoh Iddeeleigh was beated, while Lamp lighter and Banquet began to make the run. Lowlender turned into the home stretch three lengths before Terrifler and Dr. Hlasbrouck. who were neck and neok two lengths ahead of Lamplighter. The flyina leader never faltered and pnsed un der the wire rather an easy winner. Terri. ier seeared second place by four lengthe from Lampliahter, who beat Hasbreouk by a head for third. Banquet, the Pepper, Mares, Iddeleigh and Pesara finished in the order named. Owing to a fight between the Shebpshead Bay authorities and the Guttenburg and Fort Lee people and also the Western Un ion compeny, no one was allowed to leave the ground till after the suburban, and p:re cautions were taken to jrevent information getting out. Hence the erroneous resorts telegraphed over the country during the afternoon, making Lamplighter the win ner. The greatest suburban was run June 17. 1890, and won by the fastest and bhand someet horse that ever started in it, kingly Salvator. 8alvator was a public favorite and his rival, Tenny, was well favored aleso but could only finish third, and out of the race sprang the great match between him and Salvator, in which every fraction of a reeerd oa distance was shattered, the mile and a quarter being dens in 2:05. The resali of to-day's races, summar ized, were as follows: Five furlongs-Dobbins won, Melody see and, Declare third. Time, 1:02 2-5. Five furlongs-Ameer won. Mio Mao queen second. Montepool third.

Pierce, an engineer of Topeka, Kaen., gives araphle. aoount of sights enenantered on two tripe to the westward from Sitks as first mist ant englneer of the teamslhip Cresent City. 'here was nothing unnsual to attract attention until before dark one evoeins a eloud seemed to ripe and aepand until it looked up over the Unalask is lends. As the, light lessened and the steamer advaned, bright tongaes were now and then visible through the black clouds as they rolled up ward. The course of the steamer was suac that it drew near the strange sight which had riveted attention of all the oooopants at the ship. As the passage was ap proached a very distinct observation was permitted of a fall-fledged volcano belch ing forth huge mases of inky smoke and flames and lars. The latter was all but obscured by the density of the dark vapors. It was Mount Makushin, whieh comes down in rolling foothilla to the sea from an altitude of 5474 feet. Indian villages are about its base. There was roaring and rumbling as though the bowels af the earth were to be emitted. Out oft the very summits belehed forth sulohu-y one contents in one grand column which reared its head fully 2,000 feet above the mountain orest. When this altitude was reached the shill in the air seemed to melt the vapors, makinag it appear as though they found a vent in the heavens. This spectacle was four times repeated on the trip along the Aleutian islands, and the crew began to imagine that nature had be aun to met beacon lights on the mountains for the ship's sueioal benefit. A huge mountain in the island of Akutas, the name of whioh is not eharted, vied with its distant nelghbors in making itself seen. Its. alt tude as givren s 8,898 feet. Smoke and fire, presumably lavs, were issuing from its Longueod peak, though not In such ozuber snt qualities. On Unimak island an old volcano, thought to have been extinet, 8,952 feet in altitude, was in a violent state of turbulence. It is known as Pegrumnoi .Vaedvidot mountain, considered to be a harmless mass of. exalted earth, on 'Thimak tsland, but it had burst out into a full-fledged veloano, which equaled in intensity very elosely the antiquated bhispaldin. The lurid streaks breaking out of the dark shroud which wound itself around the crest looked like red streaks of lightning piero ing storm clouds. The hissing and roaring of the boiling oauldron ' ome out over the deep in fitful waves of sound as from out of the sky. Stilt another active volcano was seen at a great distance on Unimak island, AT THE WHITe CITY. The Rain Camne Down and Ruined a Pros pective Good Attendaooe. .moAoo., June 20.-The day opened hot, but wnth floecy clouds and a good brease. which made getting about in the fair grounds quite comfortable. People began pouring into the World's fair grounds early and the prospects looked good for a big at. tendanes. About noon the weather changed and in a short time the rain was coming down in torrents, and the outlook for a big attendance was ruined. The weather con tinued stormy the remainder of the after noon and evening. The exposition authorities have set apart Oct. 20 to 24 for a big reunion of war vet. erasn, both union and confederates. The Grand Army posts will mak efforts to bring all the old soldiers Possible to CObi easo. Arrangements are now being made to give the Spanish osravels a royal welcome on their arrival here after their long voy age via the St. Lawrence river and the great lakes. The big Ferris wheel will be dedicated to morrow with appropriate ceremonies.

The Firs t o a Serits at College Lacs Shows Good Time. Nzw LonDOr. Conn., June 0.--Vietory perohed on Cornell's erimson this afternoon in the first of a series of sollege race on the coarse of the Thames this year. In several respeete it was the most remarkable fresh men race over rowed over the two mile course. Both erews pulled an exceptionally hard race, Cornell to lower the two mile college record, and Columbia to lessen the oenstantly inrearsing space of open water between her prow and the Cor nell's stern. Cornell won by over ten lengths in 10:08. That the record was not brokesn was indisputably .le to the fact that a stiff breeos came up just as the erews passed the mile and a half post, for as it was Cornell made she fastest mile ever made by a freshman crew and equalled the best mile and a half.

Justice Dewey's Charge Is Very Favorable to the Accused Woman. Th. spectators Break Out n Loead Oheer lag When the Verdict Is Anneouned by the Foreman. Nae Bnyroan, Mass., June 20.-Lizzie sorden is a free woman, the jury having acquitted her to-day after being out an booe and twenty minutes. At the opening of the trial this morning District Attorney Knowiton rensmed his argument on behalf of the commonwealth. He addressed him self to the motile for the murder, pointed out the enmity of Lizzie toward her step mother ac sufficient motive for her murder, and said that killing necessitated the killing of her father, the stern man who knew of the enmity and loved his dead wife. The only way for Lizzie to possibly escape pun ishment lay in killing her father. It was the theory, the only one, which would con sistently asceount for the double murder tking place in a period of an hour and a half between the acts. '"In all your conversations have you ever beard of an attempt to create an alibi which needs more straining than the cir aimetances of this one." asked Lawyer Knowlton. "That barn alibi will not stend."' He then commented on the old rnd dusty condition of the barn and the feet that keen-eyed people found no traces of persdns having been there. How Lizzie could have avoided getting blood on her clothes the jury could not answer because they were neither women nor murderers. It was a singular thing that the dress, after being kept so long, was burned that partio lear bunday. Lizzie had been told Satur day night she was accused of the crime and next morning burned the dress. The peeaker said Mrs. Began never denied the "Y'Vo gave me away" story under oath. The proseeenution did not claim they intro diOcd the hatchet with which the murder was committed. It was shown that the hatchet had been wet and rubbed in ashes, and that the blade fitted almost miracu lonely into the holei in the skulls. He said the produetion of the hatehet was no part the government's base and closed with an eloquent appeal to the jury. Court then took a recess. On reassembling the defendant was given an opportunity to speak. lhe said: "I am innoent., but I will leave my case in your bands and with my counsel." Jeustice Dewey then charged the jury. He defined the different dearees of murder and stated that the rgesumption of innocence was increased by ddeaddtl,'s character. There must be a real and. operative motive. The judge LIZZIE BORDEN. further charged the jury to weigh the evi dence to see whether defendant's perma nent state of mind showed any motive for the crime. Every material allegation in the indictment must be proved beyond a reasonable doubt, that is, to a moral ocr tainty. He compared the direct and the circumstantial evidenee. He said the fail ure to prove the esseential fast would be fatal. Liszies statements about the note were discussed at length. He said the jury must be satisfied that they were false. Every fnot proved must be reasonably eonsistent with Ruilt. The government did not show that anybody else had an opportunity for the crime, but it must prove that defendant committed it. The jury must reason as to the effect of defendant's conduct and her statements. They were not to conclude by expert testi mony. but were to apply to it reasonable jdudgment. They might conviet if satisfied the acot was done by another party, but that defendant was t resent, aiding and abetting. The fact that defendant did not testify should not influence them against he-. Judge Dewey, continuing, said the gov ernment claimed that these ets comae nder the head of murder in the first degreer, The law claims that ia order to prove this every claim must be proved beyond a rea sonable doubt. It was stated that the gov ernment presented its case on circumstan tial evidene. It is understood by the court that the government claimed that the es sential fact was embraced in the note mat ter; that she made statements which she knew were false when she was making them; bt it ontemplated the possibility of there bein an asseassin. Might he not have come upes her when the note was at hand and removed it as one of the links? In iereuamtantial evidence, unless every link holds good, the chain is worthless. The jury were asked to bear in mind the supposed faete that there was nothing to connect the defendant with the murder so far as outward appearances went. At the eonclusion of the charge the at torneys conaulted a few momentes and then the jary was allowed to retire. It was just 4:40 o'eleck when the spectators, who kept their seats patiently for the hour and twenty mtintee after the retirement of the jury, aotleed a movement indleatiug their return. A moment later the twelve men filed into their seate and were polled. Miss lorden was asked to stand up and the fore man asked to return the verdict, which he announeed: "Not guilty." Then all the dignity and decorum of the court room vanished. A cheer went up whioh might have been heard half a mile away and there was no attemapt to cheek it. Miss Borden's head went down upon the rail in front of her and tears ceme. Lawrer Jnniegs wsee almost oeryin while Lawyer Adams seemed neeapable of speeh. As soon as poe sible the seem was eleared and when the peetatore had finally gone Miss Borden was taken to the room of the juetioe and allowed to recover her semposere with only the eyes of her friends ui on her and the caress of devoted ad mirers. At the expiration of an hour she was pieed an e earriage and driven to the statine, where she took the train for Fall iver, her home no lopger, probably, but still t only o jeetlve point fto the im THE COURT KNIW ITS BIIIUINESS. slr Rtlchard Webster tiharrly Itebuked by the Ilering Sea Tribunal. PAnar, June 20.-Upon the resumption of the sealing question before the Bering sea tribunal of arbitration to-day Hir Richard Webster, counsel for Great Britain, con tinued his argument in support of the Brit Ih case. The proceedings were tempor arily enlivened by the intervention of Baron de Coorcel, president of the tribunal, who took exception to a statement by Mir Richard and who took the opportunity to Instruct film that the tribunal knew its duties and powers and could not allow him to make statements leading to the infer ence that Great Britain would perhaps not abide by the decision of she tribunal. Sir Richabard devoted part of his speech to a re Indictment of the management or misman agement of the Pritylff island both by the local United States authorities and the agents of the Alaska Commercial company. Prior to 1889 these persons had, for obvious reasons, Sir RIichard de clared, concealed the real state of affairs from the authorities at Washington. In the course of his remarks Sir Richard main tained that both Great Britain and the United States were under moral obligations to sanction by legislation whatever regula tions as to the seal fisheries the tribunal might adopt, but he added that this obliga tion was not legally binding. When air Richard made this stratment Baron de Courcel inte ruptad him before he could proceed further rind in sharp tones said to him: "I cannot allow you to say that be fore us. We are conducting a serious busi ness. Neither country party to tide arbi tration can break its word and reject the award made by this tribunal." Sir Rticah ard was a little taken back by the sharp ness of the president's tone and hastened to explain that the moral obligation was as binding as the legal one. In concluding Sir Richard said it must be left to each party to the arbitration to take measures to enforce the regulations enacted by the tribunal. Heon. C. H. Topper, Canadian minister of marine and British agent, followed Sir Richard Webster. HOIST ON THEIR OWN PETARD. One Dynamiter Dismembered and An other Injured in MadrId. MADnn. June 20.-A large dynamite bomb was exploded at midnight a few feet from the house of Conovas del Castillo, ex premier. The explosion was heard through out the city.

Three oo licemen ran to the spot and found the dis membered body of a man in the street, and caught a man crawling down the street on his hands and knees. When arrested the man refused to say what he knew of the explosion, but complained that he was se verely wounded. One of his legs was broken, the scalp torn, and his face cov ered with blood. He was taken to the po lice station and identified as one of three men who were seen standing near the house just before the explosion. Many of the houses in the neighborhood were badly damaged.

DERAILED IN A TUNNEL, Terrible Accident to a Train Re. turning From Sheepshead Bay Races. Two Men Killed Outright and Five Die Later in the Hospitals. About One lnndred Others Are elajred, Many of Whom, It Is Thought, Cannot Ilecover. New Yonx. June 20.-A train on the Long Island railroad, ul:on which were about 1,000 persons retunning from the Sheeps head Bay races, was derailed this evening in the tunnel a short distance from Parks. vill, L. I. Two persons were killed out right, five died soon after being removed to the hospitals, and about 100 others were injured, many no seriously that they will not recover. The killed at the time of the accident were: Patrick Daly, court officer of New York city; H. S. Pringle, of New York. These died in the hospitals: Henry Mprink, police court marshal, New York; Robert Cutting, \oliceman, New York; BI. J. McGonigle, Philadelphia; Fritz D. Johnson and John timlay, New York.

D. Ford and L. Foster. New York; unknown man, unconscious. As the train drew near the tunnel thead denly gave a jerk and a jolt. The engine and the firest two ears ran along bumping jumping and reeling to the very mouth of the tunnel, then broke loose and were carried through the tunnel. The other part of the train was pulled apart, the first half dragging itself half way through the tunnel. People jumped from the train and fell upon the embankment, only to be bruised and cut by the cars. Others were bruised upon ahe rooks of the tunnel. Women fainted and men became panio stricken and trampled them and children under feet in their mad flight for safety. When the train was inally stop!ed cooler heads immediately began to render assistance to the wounded who lay along the track. Orders to the Brook lyn hospitals for ambulances were imme diately sent. In the meantime the wounded were gathered up and stretched out upon the embankment. A hundred persons, it is said, ware paced there. The people who from their carriages on the driveway looked down upon the terrible soene also rendered assisetance. The train was without doubt derailed by a misplaced switcb. It stood there open after the accident in mute evidence. As the first two care remained on the track it is declared by some that the switch was shut when these rassed over but jolted loose and allowed the other part of the train to be derailed. GEM AND FRISCO CLOSED. The Men Renew Their DI)maed for a Uni form $3.50 aclte. Speooial to The Independent. GEM, Idaho, June 20.-The men em ployed in the Gem and Frisco mines on Canyon creek have struck for an advance in wages and those properties are closed down in consequence. It is the old question of skilled and unskilled labor wakes. The miners have been receiving $3.50 and the sarmen and shovelers have been paid $3 per day. 'rhedemand now is for a uniform soale of $3.50. Both the Gem and the Frisco have been heavy producers of late. The Gem employed about a hundred men and the Frisco almost as large a number. These are the mines where last year the riots, dynamiting and murders occurred. The other mines will shut down if the resolu tion of the men is adhered to. A WELCOME RAIN. It Is Doing Much to Stop the Wires in the Mesaba Range. DUtILUT, Minn.. June 20.-A welcome rain started to fall here this evening. If it ex tends over the Mesaba range it will do much to quench the forest fires whieh are still raging in the greater portion of the pine region. The fires extend far up into the Rainey river distioet, and a man just returned from a trip through this region sats the flames rise fifty feet above the tops of the trees and are still spreading. Train men reoort heavy forest tires around Hlinokley. More accurate reports from the fires indi. cate gr~rater losses than at first reported. In addition to $1,000,000 loss at Virginia the losses at other places aggregate $500, 000, not counting the timber, which cannot Lre estimated, but which will be at least $1,000,000.
