Prospects of the ('online Racing Season al
Jerome Park.
How the Club House and Grounds Are
Being Improved.
Jerome Park never looked better at tbla early sea
?ou than low. although the days of bright aunebiuo
vouohaaled the inhabitant* of tin* latitude unco the
departure ol winter can be remembered without much
mental oiertlon. Tim gram i* growing rapidly and in j
a week or ao will be ono bright Hold or waving
emerald; tbo dry leaves and twig*, the accumulation
Of the dreary montha, have all been gathered and re
moved Irom tho ground*; tbo commodious stable*
have been thoroughly cleaned and made Iresli and
pleasant looking by tno proper application ol lubor,
and the track n In excellent condition lor the pre para- ;
lory work which thoroughbred borne* arc now in need
Ol. Never since the organisation of ibe American 1
Jockey Club ban tho truck been in t>uch shape al so j
? early a date In tho spring. It suflerod so little by tho
beating and driving storm* ol the inactive season mat I
It required loss ibau two hours' work to uiiko the lew '
trivial repairs nccossary. Noi only are the grounds I
receiving that caroful attention always given llioiu 111
the spring, but tbo club house has been lu
tbe hands ol a corps ol mccliuu:cs and cleaner*
lor three or lour weeks past. Tins elegant, capacious
and admirably airanged structure never appeared
more attractive lhau at present. It has been newly
puiuled inside and outaide; it bas received new furni
ture, now carpets and new uppoinlmeuls iu every par
ticular. Urcul taste has been displayed in this work, as
the harmony ol colors is so marked it demands iuslunl
recognition by tbe visitor. Kvcu the chuudelicrs have
been taken 1'rotn their places and given a thorough
overhauling, while the old muulelpiecos have been re
placed Witn those ol new and neater uusigns. I bo ball
room. wbicb all Jcrouic 1'urk goers know to bo &U.xlOO
luel, is now undergoing the same systematic retluistung
as tne club bou.->e has been subjected to, aud In a lew
day* It will look as bright us a new sliver dollar,
TUB llull.KM IX TItai.M.SU.
The handsome appearance ol luo grounds aud the
iresh and ueat look of tho club houso are not
alone the present attractions at Jerome Park. Fur
soma tune past there buvo been many prominent rac
ing stables there, the trainers ol ouch taking advan
tage ol every day of pleasant weather to give their
pets the airing aud exercise needed by ibein. Nearly
ninety horses uru already at ilio l'ark, aud tho tiumb r
will be increased as tbo days roll ou to such an extent
thai there admits ol but ltti.o doubt that a lot ol Jul)
or more will be ou tho grounds to lake part in the
ojieiuug meeting. The outlook seems particularly prom
ising, and if Jerome Park ibis year does uol add an- |
oilier biJiliaul page to its turi history there must he a ?
series of unexpected disasters now seemingly impossible !
to occur. Up to luis tliuu the trainers ol tne several es
tablish uiouis noted below have becu breezing their
horses quite lively, but the reul strong work they re- |
quire to be m proper lorin lor Hie early events will
not be commenced lor another week. In these bright
Oiorniugs, sutU a* yesterday ami Wednesday, the pic
ture in ibe curly hours, as firing alter string ol high
mettled rucers were led on thu track, wo* one ol pious*
ant enjoyment, but when, with watches in hand, each
trainer stunds in some convenient p.ace and notes tho
pace ol ibis or lliut horse aud w uu ea.er eyes scans Ins j
action, us mile alter mile is gone over ul cupping
Strides, the sc< ue will be exhilarating uud well worth
the journey ol ninny tunes to witness.
The stable thai heads tbo list ul horses ut the Park
yesterday Is tnul ol Messrs. Carr & Co., thu c: urge of 1
Which is id the hands ol tho veteran An.el William-on.
Bad luck seems to have persistently loliowed this
liable, although its iniuaies arc rich in royal blood.
Better limes are no douol in store lor tho owners, as
their judgmeut has been oi the best iu oruoring a new

others; Win. A-.lor's selected few, among them
Vagrant; Charles Heed's preleiHinua establishment,

livers. I huse, with the numorous establishments irom i
Maryland uud the South and West, will take a prom- i
loenl part in the opening meeting of Jerome Ibtrk,
wliii.h makes :l uppe.ir beyond a doubt that success
must attend the introduction to the Eastern racing
season Ol 1677.
Mr. Gates 11. Barnard, member ol tbo Atlantic Dis
trict Ifouril of Appeal* of the National Trolling Asso
ciatiua, will, tbo coining season, again assume the
management ol Fleetwood Park. This gentleman dnl
much lust year to' re vivo the fallen lor tuues ol the
Morrltunia truck, but the job bo Ibon look in baud
was ol hucU a character that ouly a man ol nerve
and persistency could hope to succeed, it is univer
sally acknowledged among tbe trotting fraternity in
this vicinity that success did attend Mr. Barnard's
ollorts in 1870, und with Ibis indorsement to bis credit
be goes Into business lor the year 1877, meaning to
give tbe publlo ol New York lirst class trolling sport
without any ol tbo many drawbacks wblcb, unfortu
nately, have done so much lor u long time past to bring
tbo pleasant amusement lulu disrepute. Tbe track und
its surroundings already begin to luko on the appear
unce ol activity. A corps of luborers uro o.can
ing up tbe rubblsb tbat accumulated duriug
tbo winter months. Tbat purl ol tbe Icuco about tbo

while at the same lime It gave mauy drivers coulideocu i
111 their ability to sit tne pigskin with skill and grace.
Under these circumstunces tbo saddle trot at Fleet

We are glad 10 eee ibm the revival of stage coacblug
bide lair lo be a greater success thuu most people an
ticipated. Not only will the coaches that have been
lately running coutlnuo on the road, but also several
new projects aro in contemplation. The Drat coach of
the seas or is the Guilford one. Tfita tuts already begun
lo run as far as Cobbuiu. and on April 14 will run the
whole diatauce. The Portsmouth team will soou take
a new route through some of the finest scenery of
Surrey and Hants. It will not be luug beloro the
Windsor, Dorking and St. Albans coaches aro on the
roud, while the well known Brighton coach will con
linuo to run daily aa usual. Indeed, we have overy
prospect that other coaches, taking other roulov, will
bo started, not ooly in Loudon, but that the good ex
ample will be followed in some of our largo provincial
From a sanitary point of view, and with respect to i
those who are more in search of health than engaged
ou business, we look upoli this little rcvivul of stage '
couching ss oue of the happiest innovations that could j
bo made upon our usual mode of travelling. There j
can ho no doubt that lu many cases travelling by rail
way goes a good way toward dcleullng il>o very object
for which the jouruey is uudortakou. The time speul I
in the train may nut he lung, hut it more than time I
lost. The great fatigue, the headache, the giddlucss !
or sickness, the shako to the system and other eytup.
toms which tnany people cxperlouco who are in good |
health, aro often not recovered front for two or three !
days alter their arrival at their favorite health resort. !
Consequently the lime they bavo lost, as far us the
improvement of their health is concerned, is much i
longer than the time they would have spent had they !
travelled by coach, and not ono moment ol which !
would nave been turowu away, but, on the coulrary
spent lu the most healthy and enjoyable ol pursuits.'
Besides, if, a* philosophers say, human happiness de- j
peuds upon itie multiplicity of our innocent enjoy- '
uieuts, there must ho a great lallacy iu rushlug down, I
as 80 in ft 11 y ol Uis Uo, 10 .some waieruig !

whole proiosMou wdl agree with us ou this point,
i Iho litllo evils resulting to heutlh front railway trav
I elling have heOn exposed by ono or two eminent in um
bers, hut the gr. at oeuulll which persona in search of
; health would derive irom driving or being driven in
i the opeu ulr, uud amid the varied and ever-varying
charms ol rural scenery, instead ol sounding their
| time iu the uiunuerjusl spoken of, has almost entirely
| escaped tho uot.ee of the profession, and is too often
forgutum when wo are sending our patieuts lor a
"utile change ol air." There can, indeed, be nothing
i worse lor hotly and mind thuu to ourry mio our nloas
urcs that haste aud excitement which we uowuduis
throw into our business. And yet u little reflection
will show that tilts had habit is too much prac
tised by both home and continental travellers
Wbuu tueu go ou their uuiuiuuul lours they often
work harder than they uid at homo, uud the

the reuch ol those who either rush from place to pluco,
or who scramble down by rail to tlio seasido, where
they become us much a llsiure as the "oldest inhabi
tant" ul the place. Even the mere pleasure of being -
conveyed rupnlly through toe c.iuutry ou the top of a '
well appointed coach is much greater thuu mau.v peo- ;
pie -muyiuo. Dr. -Samuel Johnson told Bos we'll ono
day that ho knew of no grouler pleasure thuu that of i
being driven rapidly through a Hue opeu country; out
contrary to what might Have beoeu expected Irom j
the great moralist, ue added, "in the company of a
prcltj' wott.an." I)r Johnson, however, was a grout
though iiiuoceut admirer of female beauty, and who
will dispute bts good taster llis dictuiu ou the mero
pleasure ol driving is none tho less remarkable |
especially when we consider II canto Irom a luuu who
thought one duy in tho Slrund was worth a month 1
spent in the country. But ono of tho chief reasons
why wo, us medical nton, would recommend our
putii'uls to patronize tho coach a little more and the
truiu a litiio less is the bcui-lU tUey would derive Irom
the purity uud Ireshne.-s of the air breathed. The air
ol most tf'the watering places lo which nine-tenths ol
the population resort tor change of uir is, irom its
moisture or some other cause, olton lonnd to do more
burin thuu good, while the drier uir ol tho luluint uis
tricts is generally louud lo agree Willi most constitu

bouso or makes an excursion through some flue inland
scenery thousands uow rush dowu to some hishionuhlo
to wu on the coast to return Uoiuo with iheir heuitu vary
little belter than wncn they loll it. We live and work
moreover, ut sucn high pressure, and tho struggles lor
uxlsleuce and competition ol all kinds arc so groat
that we are continent that little uud irequeiitlv re
pealed runs out bf town would be fur more boneilciul
lo many or our city nieu than tho one autumnal hull,
u.iy usually taken when tlio best ol tho summer has I
goue. A lew journeys down to Brighton and back by j
tuc coach In ilie course ol the season would, Iroui a
healthy point ol view, bo tnore than equivalent to
three weeks' residence at that place, simply because
by ineuiiH of these short periodical "outings'- (be
lumd and body are not allowed lo be so completely
Jaded us to be beyoud the luvmorulltig aud restorative
intlueuce of the change ol air aud scene.
For these reusous we think thul the rovlval of slago
co idling, which has been recently inaugurated by a
number ol enterprising uoblemou and gentlemen, is to
bo commenced ou more grounds than tbut oi tho sport
uud pleasure it affords. In our opinion It offers to iho
Invalid, or lo ibe inuu whose brum has been over
taxed, a new or ruiher revived means ol recruiting bis

Nouwalk, April 12, 1877.
A meeting or tbo Public Ho.ilth Association was held
in the rooms of the Academy of Medtcino lad evening.
Tbo principal object of tbo meeting was to bear tbo re
port ol a special committee uppointod to consider tbo
pructlonblllty of Introducing the provident dispensary
system into ibis city. Mr. Juines C. Buyles, on behalf
ol tbo committee, submitted tbe report. It considered
tbo bestowal or indiscriminate charities as lujnrtous
aud calculated to make two paupers in helping one.
Tbo groat medical charities are in no rospoct less hurt
ful lu their intiuence upon tbe tnorulo o! tbe poorer
classes. Tboy seem to bo peculiarly liablo to abuse,
since sickness and sullering touch tbe sympathies more
deeply than even tbo pica of hunger. There are thou
sands or laiuillos peculiarly liuhlo to sickneBs who uow
have no resourco lor medical usslstunce except tbo tree
dispensaries. The report proceeds to urgue lu lavor of
a combination of the true and piovideut systems of
dispensaries as being calculated to relieve tbo charita
bly deposed from uu excessive and unnecessary bur.
deu, and to make the expense of furnishing medicine
reasonable to those who uro abundantly able to pay for
It, aul still retain tbe lealurc of helping those who are
not. The dally experience of physicians in free dis
pensaries, in luuooraud outdoor practice, gives abun
dant evidence ol shuweless imposition on tbo part of
applicants. The hygienic advantages ol the provident
over tbe free system were presented.
The provident dispensary la not a charity, but a
sell supporting mutual ben tilt society, somewhat uu
llio principle of an accident insurance company. By
tbe payment ol a small sum weekly, lu sickness aud ia
health tbe members are uulttlud to medical attend
ance and mediciufs without additional charge when
they noed them. Tbo success of similar institutions
lu Kuglaud was described, where ibey are tbo out
growth el tbo Ireu dlspelisuriea, aud are fouud el im
portant benotit tn relieving tbese institutions or a p.irl
ol their burdens. The rale is a peony a week, uud
wUolu families are required to join where one becomes
a member. The dues ure collected weekly by
agents. Three-fourths ol ibe money is divided among
the medical stall' ol ibe dispensury in proportion lu tbo
number of patieula trualod by each. The rest covers
cxpeuaes. It Is proposeu to require tor membership
ol dispensaries here the sum ul Uvo cuuh-per week,
which, with u.OOti members, will give a total Income

Conclusion of the Inquest and Verdict
of the Jurv.
Mr. Taintor's Astonishing Dul
ness of Hearing.
Tbe most remarkuhle inquest that bus taken place
since itio time ol the Nuiban murder wue brought to a
conclusion yoslvrday by u verdict which, II not quite, :
was almost all that could have been desired bv the
Iriends of ltie deceased. Several peculiar circum
stances deserve to bo noticed. l'ho inquest was Ueid
ou llie bodies ol George W. and Orvillc I). Jewell, wbo
wore killed in a very mysterious manner on tho otb
Inst. Notwithstanding ibis tbo jury never viewed tbo
body of Orvillo Jewell, us tbey were by law requlrod
to do. Captain Holly was called on tbe luquesl, but
was excused Iroin testifying alter a whispered consul
tation with the Coroner. Mr. Dean's statement was
lukon privately at Ins bouse. All the questions asked
of witnesses appeurud to point aioue toward bringing
out uud establishing tbo suicide theory Tbo develop
mouth ol yesterday, however, surpassed iu mystery all 1
I lie previous details that could be gleaned concerning
tne ufluir.
Mr. Charles relator waa tne tirsl wiliioss called. Ills
testimony on all points relating immediately to tbe
tragedy was very contused. He said Ihui be bad
been counectod Willi the tlrin ol John Jewell & Sous
lor leu years. Orville U. Jewell kept lbs books ol tUo
while load llrui uud wituess kept tbe books of ine oil
business. Allcrwurd, iu response to a demaud lor
explauuliou by u juror in rolereuce to some accounts,
be prolossed biiuseli to be unable to expiaiu very
clearly ou uccoutil of bis wuul of experience ol book
keeping. Tbo day before Hie catastrophe be said bo
bad beua informed that lie wus 10 have a sbare in tnu
business. Mr. George Juwoit told hnu so, at the sauio
time suying that Orville wits going out 01 tho Arm.
Mr. Taintor continued us follows:?lu last November
1 Ursl learned iroin Mr. Dean mat tbey Intended to get
Orvillo out of the brni; tbo ronson tor tbls was tbut
Orville bad acted so uugemlotnuiily toward both Mr.
Doau and Georgn W Jewell, uud tboy could not ugroo

on tbe day 01 tbe tragedy.
George W. Jewott went inio tbo rear office and there
were present iu there Orvilie, Mr. Duau and Mr.

Jewell also loltlbo rear olllce; Mr. George Jewell ulso
came out and went out into tbe tront olllce with sotne
letters and sat down on tbe desk for about live min

ville followed weorge W. to toe (rout olllce; Georgo W.
then wont back lUlo tbe rear olllce, but Orvillo fol

lour minutes Mr. Duau uppearod at the door una
walked right by mo out of ibo gate; 1 didn't bear tne

George called "CharleyI Charley!"
Tbe corouur?What was yuui'iuipression then?
Mr. Talulor? 1 don't know tfiat 1 had uu impression.
Witness then continued us follows:?Mr. Dean
loosed very pale, but spoke not a word; the door wus
opeued uud my nnnio was called; 1 rusbod luto the

1 tueu turned to see if auy ouo was neur or coming
Into tbe room; on looking again toward wnero 1 ucurd
the shots I saw two men, Georgo W. uud Orvillo D.
Jewell lying ou tbo Hour.
Mr. Taintor hero explained to the jury tbe position
ol the bodies. He said that George wus dead.
By the Coroner?liow uld you know be was deadf
A. Well, 1 supposed he wus; he looked luce it, hut 1 did
not leel of bis pulse or heart; Orvillo was not dead lor
I saw him struggling.
y Were you uwure that Orville offered to sell bis In
terest out to Mr. Dean raiber than lo any other mem
ber of tbe Arm f A. No, sir; 1 was uwuro that it was
tuieuded lor Mr. Doau to buy out Orviiio's interest in
tbo husiuess.
y. Did you ever see any member ol tbo llrm curry
uuy wnupous? A. Yes; about six years ago 1 saw Or
villo Jewett with a revolver in bis pocket; it was ou

Q. Are you sure Mr. Deau wus out ol tbo rear olllce
beloro tbe pistol shots were bred V A. Yes, be was; I
saw bun come out boloro 1 weut In; tbe glass partition

By counsol?Do you moan to say that you did not

A. I uo.

you prelcud to say you did not bear it and you wvro
iiuiiwouiy leet Irum itr A. 1 do not recollect having

(Derisive laughter )
y. Were you siuuned, er are you deal, Mr. Taintor?
A. No; I am not deul, nor was I stunned or fright
cued when 1 saw Mr. Dean come out looking so white;
1 must have boon greatly absorbed in wbut 1 was do
Counsel?Well, 1 should think so, not to hear an ex
plosion iliui blew out the windows close by you uud
was beard several blocks ofl.
Witness staled b>- bad neurd that Orville bad spoken
ol tbe other nieniburs ol the llrm in ungeutleiiianly
terms; bis recollection on tbls poiut was vory cou

aotne sucli wards.
I'lie waicb aud other articles or jewelry belonging to
Orville Jewell were here produced. They were banded
to the wiluesa by the Uieuieu or policotnon, aud ho
placed ibetu in Mr. Charles Jewell s desk.
The Corouor?What did you do iheu? A. I decided
to go down to Stuluu lalucd to uolily the tauiily ol
George Jewell ol the cittastropha; I iutended to tiavo
uu iin)Uusi on the bbdy ol Goorge W. Jewutlt, aud liavo
It held in the ottlce; 1 spoke to Mr. Hill, and about au
hour alteraard saw Mr Lieaii down stairs, and spoke
to unit ou the subject; it was then 1 first discovered
that Mr. Dean was wounded; I went to Stolen Island,
antl did not return until Monday; the explosion oc
curred on Thursday morning.
Q. Then you wcul uwayund lot Orville O. Jewell and
Mr. Oeun lake cure ol themselves, and thought you
hud done enough to go to Staleu Isluud una notify the
family of your laihor-in-law of the explostou aud
eatuairopbe? A. 1 knew the oilier parties were takeu
euro ol, aud I heard ol their condlltou dally.
The next wituoss called was Mr. James W. Sellock,
the guueral houkkeeper ol Jewell A Sons. He said:?
1 a in not aware ol uny trouble or dispute between the
members of the llrni; lor several da> s previous to the
explosion orville appeared lo be troubled about some
mulicr; I do not know whetber be was out ol bis
mind or not; I cnmiot ray whether the small pistol
which was lound Is the one I saw with Orville tome
ttuie ago.
Charles 11. Jewell next tesillled us lollows:?1 am a
member 01 the Itrm ol J. Jewell & .Sons, and bavo
been since 1857; Mr. Dean was at that time uu em
ploy d ol the llrtn, but was not a member, George
Jewelt said lu nte one day in lust November:?
"Charley, I can't stand ibis any longer; Orville has
treated me outrageously aud I would preiur to leuvo
the tirm lhau put up with it-''
This wus at limner ouo day, when my brother
George, Orville aud tnysoli diced up stairs ur the office
together; 1 left thuui .it the table together;
Orville was olieu dissatisfied ut thu Arm be
cause they were not making money enough; I gunl to
in a
liiin that he had not tne right to speuk in tho manner
be did to the senior partners; he replied:?
?'Ou, well, I have my rights; but don't you be
Iriuhtoned, li'sall right."
W believer Ills opiniun was asked about any contracts
he would not say whulhct iliuy please I mm or not;
nrvlliu went uwuy ou a suooting excursion about the

me that lie had concluded to leave the tlrui on me 1st

II he had uuy pruposule to make about buyiug out tho
other members ol tho Hi in, but lie would give mo uu
satisfactory answer; in be latter part ol Juuuary a
consultation was held between members ol the litni,
and a letter waa written mid sont io Orville which
