Opening- nay" at Olympic parB-rit' Content No Fant Time, out Assa dance of Amueeraent for the Visitors. Mr. Soulh Harris, who Las leased the Olympic park, and expects to offer purees at i . . i i : . 1 f- .f snort intervals uunug me auuimci uvv ting and running races, inaugurated the sea son yesterday by carrying out a previously advertised rjrosrramme lor lour races, ine attendance was not very laree, but those who were there had as much amusement aa might ordinarly be expected at a week's racing among the thorough bredg ol the great racing centers. The first race was a trot for $2;0. Ihe en tries were Gallina's Mamie G., Alexander's Arkansas and the black mare Ilattie McGav ock. Mamie G. won the first heat in good style, with Ilattie McGavock second and Ar kansas third. In the second heat Mamie G. showed a slight lameness but was a good sec- ond to Arkansas, wno trottea very wen. iue third and fourth heats were taken by Mamie Arkansas behaved so badly in these two heats that the other drivers, as well as nia a. were anxious that he should be drawn, but as he had won a heat, and there were pools on him, the judges ordered him to go. Ihe second, ana most exciting ui ms evening, was the miie-ana-repeai lor uoca horses. Three started Fisher's George, Watson's Shelby and Donohue's Tennessee. George came in ahead on the first heat, but was set back on account oi a -ioui, ana me heat declared dead between hiai and bhelby George won the second heat, being a tittle ahead ol Tennessee, ana oneioy a consiaera- ble distance in the rear. In the third heat Ten nessee bolted the track twice, leaping the fenee at the stable and throwing the rider, who immediately remounted and rode through the heat; but Tennessee lumped the fence again after passing the stand, this time without .unseating the game little negro ihira TO, ine programme w as a irvi lor four-year-olds for fifty dollars. This was one mile and repeat. Only two started. They were both handsome bays, one named Victor, the DroDertr of Charley Gallina, the other called Ballet, owned by Mr. Vivet, of Missis sippi. Bullet trotted squarely from the start, and won the two neats in gooa siyie, although Victor trotted rapidly at times, and would have had a faif chance for the race had he not lost his feet so often. The fourth and last race on the programme was a half mile dash between Walsh's sorrel mare and Sharp's gray mare. This shoit race was gamely contested from the start, and resulted in a victory for the eray. A match race, one-quarter of a mile, was run by a bay and a sorrel. The latter made a good start and kept ahead till the stables were reached, when he endeavored to bolt. This delay gave the bay a chance, and he caueht no at the head of the homestretch and outran his competitor i0 me poet. Three gentlemen who own gooa harness animals then arranged a trot for half a mile and reneat jSo pools were sold, and this contest was not considered a regular race. The "opening day" at Olympic part may he set rfnwn as a success. Of course, there was no fast time recorded, the trots being slower than three minutes and the running somewhere near two and a half. The track is in irnod condition, and the park grounds are well kept and attractive. The owners of good horses, as well as those who-are fond of racing, ought to endeavor to keep the place open as a driving park. leave the city on business. ' When she re turned, she discovered that he had bought the furniture. But put it in the house of au- otner woman witn wiiom lie naa oecome too intimate. She went with the constable yes terday to identify the furniture, and when thev entered the house of the other woman, the man was lying dead. The furniture was seized, and woman No. 1 remarked to her rival, "Now I have got all 1 want, you can keep and bury the dead man." LETTERS FROM THE PEOPLE. your papei party who oners to furnish a Cheap Dinner wanted. Editors Appeal For some time past r has had an advertisement of a first-class meal at fifty cents. Some people may think this is something new, when the contrary is the fact, as the I'eabody, John Gaston, and Floyd have been furnishing the best meals for fifty cents for years. The party is far from filling a long-desired want. nat our people want is a decent meal at from fifteen to twenty five cents, and he who starts the enterprise in a good location, understands and attends to his business, will surely thrive. The great majority of our clerks in stores and offices are poor, and cannot afford to pay fifty cents for a meal, but could and would pay fifteen and even twenty-five cents. They want such places free from saloons, where they can go quietly and enjoy their meals and retuin to their business. You cannot go to-day and get a plate of soup (and lunch, vile stuff it is i ior less man ten cents, mis is written with the hope that some enterprising person or persons will see the necessity of starting eating-houses where meals can be obtained by transient parties at living rates, and with the hope that those who do undertake it will make money. L. CAPTURED. Arreat of Hayoa White, the Mnrderer of Sheriff Seattle, of Crittenden County, Arkansas, by Mr. Mason, of WoodrnA Coanty. Hon. W. M. Smith in Reply to Mr. Ter- Editors Appeali-1 have read the card of Mr. Vernon in the Api eal of to-dav in reference to the marine asvlum bill. Mr. Vernon is entirely correct. The bill which he refers to passed the senate, ceding juris diction over several lots in Fort Pickering. After the bill got into the house, I asked Mr. V. to look after it, but I soon learned that the United States district attorney at Mem phis had advised the government that the title to two ol the lots was detective. v hen I learned this fact I informed Mr. V. that it would not do to cede jurisdiction if the United States government declined to take the lots, hence the delay in the matter. Afterward I introduced into the senate a general bill, which was sent to me by Hon. Casey Young and Senator Harris. This bill also passed the senate, but late in the session. I lost sight of it in the house. I think I called the attention of our members to it, but am not quite sure. This bill failed in the house, like many others, because it was not reached. I am sure it was through no fault of Mr. Vernon, who was always in his seat and well up with the business. I know that he worked as earnestly lor our local in terests as any member could have done. In fact, he is one of the very truest members of the legislature, and during the late session won the respect and esteem ol all his . asso ciates. It is proper to state that alter my return I was asked about the matter, and, referring' to the general bill, stated that it had passed the senate, but I was not sure whether it had passed the house, and referred the gentleman to Mr. srnon lor mlorma tion. . wm. M. SMITH. Jackson, Tesn., April 27th. For the arrest of Hayes White, the mur derer of Sheriff Beattie, of Crittenden county, Arkansas, a reward of $750 has been offered, $500 by tie governor of the State and $2o0 by the citizens of Crittenden county. The following dispatch was received here yester- da7 : Acousta. ARK., April 2S, 1880. To Fnrsteuheim & Wellford : Bend this telegram to Major R. F. Crittenden, at Marion. Arkansas, immediately. I have Hyes White, and will have him at Little Rock to-night. Telegraph me at Capital hotel what to do. '. N. W. UAoOpI . Mr. Mason, the capturer of 'White, is well known in this city. He is a planter, resid ing some ten miles from Augusta, aud was formerly sheriff of Woodruff county. It is expected that he will bring his prisoner from Little Rock to Memphis to-night, and from here be turned over to the authorities of Crittenden county. The capture of ,White was effected in the following manner: A posse from Forrest City, pn Monday morning, trailed him to Gregory's Point, ten miles below Augusta, on White river, and the murderer took ref uge in a cabin, which was surrounded. The neero who occupied the cabin was called out, and inquiry was made of him as to White being inside. While this parley was going on White walked out leisurely and made his escape to the bottom. One of the posm fired at him as he was escaping, and then White, as he was crossing a field, pulled off his shoes and coat and disappeared. The posse evi dently was under Dad management or else White could not have escaped so easily. While running from the cabin to the bottom he held a pistol in each hand. On Wednes day morning White was recognized and ar rested at Augusta and placed in irons, and from there taken to Little Rock last night, from whence he will probably be brought to this city to-night, or senrto Marion, Critten den county, for triaL AMUSEMENTS.

Now is your time to buv. Call on them at The Opera Season. At Leubrie's Theater, last night, quite I critical and fashionable audience was in attend- auce to watch the first effort of the Mozart society iu its presentation of Weber's fine opera, Der Frrirchut-. The east was filled by amateurs, mem bers of tha Mozart society, the obiect ef which is to advance lyric art In our city. The selection of icr Frtitchut: was a daring effort, it being a difficult onera to render even by professionals. There were but few persons in the cast who ever had seen It prescntea, ana witn mese iew, no doubt, the recollection of it was more or less in riutiimt Without the experience of even much familiarity with the opera, and guided only by the musical director, Prof. C. P. Winkler, and the stage manager, Mr. B. W. Wilson, with whatever other suggestions or instructions could be secured it was given, ana certainly, taxing it an in all. was auite creditably rendered by the ama teurs. The orchestral parts, under the leadership of Prof. Handwerker, were well and effectively presented . The orchestra, composed as it is, of thorough musicians, had of courw to wait lor and then keep up with the singers, to the detriment of t'n,. music to some extent, but the orchestra was equal to all oalls made upon it for any purpose, its members being familiar with the music and being musicians of recognized ability and merit. The plot or argument of the opera was published in full in last Sunday's edition of the Appeal, which ren ders it unnecessary to present In this uotiee. The cast last night was as follows: Agnes, Cuno's Daughter Miss Rallie Woodward .'V U 1 ! It. Ajjun s V viiinin ...,....iui.- n i. i. n i... uui Rodolnh. a Forester Mr. W. J. Stee Cuno.

Wilson Chorus ol Peasants and Hunters. The first act opened with choruses of huntsmen ana peasants, ana in wnicn --ituaoipo, jr. Steele, aiid "Killian," Mr. Roescher, appeared in the leading rul. Mr. Steele as ''Rudolph," sang and acted quite well. His voice at times was not equal to the part, not having the strength or com iulss necessary, aud occasionally the action was overdone, but he displayed a good conception of thechnracter and prescntea ltcaretuuy ana con scientiously. A " Caspar," the dissolute forester. Mr. VouGundel - was fair, but 'lie role was too heavy for him The chara 'lets ""Prince Ottoka-." Mr. Hutton "Cuno,'' Mr. Kyan, the "Hermit,'1 Mr. Wilson weia filled up fairly. Misa S. Woodward appeared aa " Agnes," aim Miss Jennie iamp as ncr uouiu "'Aunio. Miss nooawara gave a very natural rep rcsentatinu of the rule, sinking her parts carefully and pleasingly. She did not pretend to act the character to any extent, dui ner sweet singing anu iiAturalncFa nleasea tne auaience. wno testinea their appreciation by rounds of applause and floral otlerings. Miss Jennie Camp sang and acted with spirit and effect, and at once became a favorite with tha audience. Her snrichtlineas and man nerism pleased, while her singing added to her Success, rule waa uowncuiy appmuuvu, uu mroivtMl bouuuets from her friends. At the close ot the second act both ladies with Mr. Steele ("Ru dolph) were callea before the curtain to bow their acknowledgments to the audience. The third :ict was given with magnificent scenic effect ,which reflected credit upon the Mozart society and the artists who did the painting. Tbe Wolfe Glen was an eluboratv piece of work, and many startliug properties are introduced by meansof ingeniously constructed machinery. Natural cataracts are made to leap over frightful chasms; owls flap their ings ami roll their flaming eyes; the moon changes color; human skulls vomit flames; lights dance fitfully across the stage; wild boars rush macllvahout ; witches, mounted en broomsticks ride fantasticly through the air; the "Wild Hunter'' of the Black Forest himself is seen on his rampant donkey; fiery-tongued dragons envelop the scene, and skeletons disport themselves in mad steeple chases in showers of tire, meteors and bursting stars. The scene was so realistic that several timid people Lelioved the scenery to have taken tire and, rising from their seats, made haste for the door. The general effect of the opera was undoubtedly pleasing to the audience. It was a most creditable and successful production, and of which tfia Mo zart society may well be proud. The critics and even the general public are apt to expect too much from amateurs, aud closely compare them with professionals. This is clearly unjust. Certainly Ihe performance last night came up to correct ex pectations if It did not exceed them. It was satis factory and every way worthy of commendation. Ver Frrinekutz will be repeated to-night, but with a change of cast in the following roUt: Misa Sophia Houston will appear as "Agnes?' Miss Jessie Steele as "Annie," Mr. Von Gundell as "Zamiel." The opera will be reproduced at the matinee to-morrow, and for the last time to-morrow night. tmi Entirely novel styles of Shaded and Strii Silks to match and trim our fine Nun's Veil ings.
