The feat ures of the opening day of the spring meeting of the Louisville Jockey Club 'ware the great crowd, some very lively though not particularly heavy betting, and the mud. And then the Kentucky Dtrbywas run in the slowest time on record. The nearest approach to It war in 1883 when Leonatus galloped away from Drake Carter and the rest In 3:43, There were bIx starters, as expected.

Letcher and Robespierre were' greeted with rounds of applause. At tho start In the betting Robcsplerr was a hot favorite on even terms. Riley suddenly dropped to 4 to 1 and Letcher was at the same figure. They cantered leisurely around to the half mile post' opposite the stand, as the chute had. been closed and were off at the first tap of the drum with Letcher in the lead, Palisade socond, Outlook third, the others bunched. In tho stretch Robespierre led by half a length, Out look second, Fonso third, the rest close up. At the quarter Robespierre still led, Outlook second, Pali sade, third, tho others scattered.

Mr. Macune, representing the Farmers' Alliance, con tinued his argument before the Ways and Means Committee in favor of the Pickler bill to establish sub-treasuries, for the receipt of agricultural product and was questioned by members of tho committee respecting the details yand probable effect of the bill Mr. Bayne wished to know If one ef- feet would not be to encourage over production.' Mr. Macune replied that it would not for just as soon as tho farmers' calling became more profitable than others there would be an influx of men into that business which would re sult In a reaction and finally the restora tion of an equilibrium. To his mind no fixed volume of currency, no matter how great would meet the needs of agri culture. It wanted an elastic medium. The farmer sold his crops in the fall' when prices were lowest and bought his supplies before1 harvest when prices were highest Crops were marketed in two or three months of the year and this marketing annually caused a great stringency in money. Mr. Flower feared that the plan would lead to banking on live-stock, iron, lead and sliver ore. They wero getting along now in the latter direc tion at the other end of the Capitol. In time the people would have every thing "in hock." In the course of tsn yean the Government would be nursing the children and the women working In tho II eld. The true remedy for the farmer'n ills was the manufacturer's plan. They should regulate production, raise only enough produce to meet the people's wanti and thereby get lair prices. Mr. Macune proceeded to explain the process proposed to regulate the Issue of produce certificates. He said that the necessity for excluding imports of agri cultural products was obvious if the quality of the certificates was to be p re served. The certificates would con stitute the soundest and best currency in the world. Probably not one-half of the $.10,000,000 appropriation asked for to put the new machinery in action would be required, but the sum should not be absolutely fixed at a minimum as in time it would be necessary to ex tend the system to include all of the the products of labor not covered by patents. Mr. Fiower said, in commenting upon the argument that the farmer would do well to manage his domestic affairs without Government interference, the currency system or ine present was wrong. The Government had not man aged it properly and could not do so.
