Democratic Election To-day.?Since sunrise
this morning the primary election of the demo
cratic party has been in progress at the usual
voting places in each of the four wards of the
city. An much interest seems to be felt in the
primary as is usually felt iu a general election.
The principal contests are over the nomina
tions for mayor, superintendent of the gas
works, auditor, and collector of the northern
district. A large vote is being anietly polled.
Showmen's Tbicks.?Some days ago two
showmen came here with a troupe of trained
goats, dogH. mice, Ac., and gave a show at the
colored Odd-Fellows' lir 11. on Columbus street,
between Wolfe and Wilkes streets. They took
board at the eating-house of Mrs. Moore, col
ored. on Cameron street, near the Washington
and Alexandria railroad depot. The show did
not pay well, and being behind in their board
bill, tliev drove off in their four-goat wagon,
and left"the trained dogs and a cage of white
mice with Mrs. Moore as security that they
would come back ami settle up. This morn
ing, just at daybreak, they came to the rear
fence at Mrs. Moore's yard, broke off it plank,
and calling the dogs, made off with them up
the road to Washington. Mrs. Moore screamed
? police" and "murder." but the dogs and men
got off before assistance could be obtained.
The showmen left behind a little trick poodle
and the white rats.
Church Anniversary.?The Methodist Pro
testant chnrch of this city celebrated last night
its sixtieth anniversary. The church was
organized bv llev. Jas. Hanson and Rev. W. W.
Wallace on the 24th of April. 1N2'J. None of
the original members of the church are now
living, the last of them. Mr. Thomas Whitting
ton. father of George T. Whittington, of Wash
ington, having died some years ago. The
church edifice was erected in l*:tO, and many
of the most useful citizens of Alexandria have
been numbered among its members. The
anniversary exercises were appropriate, con
sisting of addresses, music and the reading of
a History of the church by Mr. W. 8. Greeu
awav. the son of a former pastor.
Notes.?The bar meeting, held yesterday to
nominate a candidate for corporation judge,
consisted of Messrs. Brent. Beach, Caton, Ken
dall. Greene, Holt. Johnson. Mushbach, Smith,
and Whittlesey, Mr. Keith Norton, of the
Alexandria bar, was unanimously recommended
to the govt mor for appointment. Messrs.
Armstrong. Burke. and Marbury were not pres
ent at ? the meeting. Another false alarm
brought out the engine companies and set them
racing for awhile last night. The Alexandria
Light Infantry, C'apt. Mushbach, with fifty
men, besides a reinforcement from the Lynch
burg Home Guards, will leave here next Sun
day morning at 9:10 for the New York celebra
tion. A run-off which smashed two freight
cars, but hurt nobody, took place yesterday on
the Alexandria and Fredericksburg railroad
near Quautico. The Catholic lvceum liall
on lJuke street will be completed in June.
Big Fire ?t Hoyd3.
Boyd's, April 25, 1889.
The large sawmill owaed by Zeigler Bros.,
about a mile north of Boyd's, was destroyed by
lire on Tuesday night. The loss is estimated
at over two thousand dollars. The Bawmill and
a twenty horse power traction engine were de
stroyed and also a large amount of lumber.
There was no insurance. The mill had been
busy for several years filling demands for white
oak" lumber and railroad ties, and a large force
of workmen will be thrown out of employment.
It is thought that the mill is damaged beyond
repair. The fire was caused, probably, by a
spark from the engine, but nothing was known
of the fire until morning. When the workmen
reported for duty they found the mid in ruins.
It Was Yellow Fever.
Dr. Daniel, president of the Florida state ,
board of health, has declared that the death of j
Mrs. Chas. Demont, of Sanford, Fla., was from
yellow fever. She had been sick for two weeks
and her health had been bad for mouth*. The
case was not of a virulent or infectious type,
but was sporadic. There are no other cases in
the family and the house is isolated, and all
precsutions have been taken. Sanford has
voluntarily embargoed her people from leaving
for fifteen days, and has prohibited traffic from
5 p. m. to 7 :S0 a. m. There are no fears of an
epidemic- Under the new health laws every
point in the state is kept under close watch on
reports of doubtful cases. On requests from
citizens the state health officers visit the town
and make an exhaustive examination. The
Sanford case is the first one this year. The
state board has ample funds for prosecuting its
work, and more would be readily appropriated
if needed. The board is composed of the best
medical and sanitary experts in the state,
clothed with almost despotic power.
Surgeon-General Hamilton, of the Manne
hospital service, left Washington last evening
for Jacksonville, Fla., to confer with the state
board of health in fegard to measures for pre
venting the introduction or spread of conta

ENTHUSIASM ? HARAXBOCHES SURPRISE ? TO
DAY'S RACES POSTPONED.
There certainly ha* never been a better
s port at Ivy City than was witnessed there yes
terday. The races were good finish.'*, close
and exciting, save one. ana honor* evenly di
vided between favorites and fielders. The
weather was lovely, and if it had not been for
a light wind, which blew the dust in the sU,nd.
it would have been a perfect racing day. For
a first day the attendance was enormous, at
least four-fifths of the grand stand being
filled, and the infield held more handsome
equipages than have been seen there in many
THE RACE OF THE DAT
for the public was the steeplechase. The grand
stand went wild with delight, and as the horses
got over the different obstacles cheer upon
cheer went up to encourage them on their way.
While onlv two of the five horses that started
finished, there was but one fall, and that was
attributable to the carelessness of the jockey.
Dowing. who. when he got his horse's head and
neck in front of Elphin. lost his own head and
went off to racing at once, in consequence of
which he fell at the first wall, or rather the
first wall he met. after starting to race, which
was really the seventh in the course. Killarney
rolled completely over him. but he got up anil
walked home uuhurt At the first jump Meut
more didn't make an effort to rise and plowed
a great hole through the jump. At the next
jump, which is a blind ditch with a tree
before it, he refused, and lost what
ever chance he might have had. At the
first wall after re-eutering the field Lighthouse
balked and the race was left to Elphin and
Hercules. Elphin was going a merry pace anil
led on to the flat by fully tiftv lengths, but tired
badly and Hercules came aiong steadily, gain
ing inch bv inch, and finally won one of the
best steeplechases ever seen in this country by
a half length. The best jumper in the race
was Elphin, and he would probably have
been landed a winner had not Billings made so
much use of him. He made but one mistake
in the entire route, and that was due to Bil
lings chancing a jump.
THE OPENING RACE
at five furlongs resulted in one of the best
finishes of the day. There was a short delay
at the post, for most of which C'armodv's Duke
of Bourbon was responsible, but when Mr.
Caldwell did drop the flag it was to a very good
start with Biggonet. Haramboure and Tom
Hood in the front division. Going down the
back stretch Biggonet kept her head and neck
in front, with Tipstaff second, followed at oije
time by Haramboure, then Tom Hood. Into
the stretch the order was the name, but a fur
long from home it looked like any one of four
might win, but after a rattling finish. Whv
buru managed to land Tipstaff by the shortest
of heads, with Haramboure before Tom Hood,
Biggonet fourth, three lengths away, the others
following in the order named: Meade, Fannie
H, Carnot and Duke of Bourbon. The place
mutuals on Haramboure paid $103.25.
THE BEST TIME.
When the horses went to the post for the sec
ond race Mr. T. B. Doswell's filly Wild Cherry
amused the crowd by running away and finally
tossing off the little black boy who rode her.
After this Judge Simmons allowed her to be
withdrawn. Starter Caldwell then got his
horses together and gave them the flag to a nice
start, from which Burch immediately went out
to make the running, followed by Langar to the
head of the turn, where he gave way to Barris
ter, who in turn retired for Panama. Burch
won handily by three lengths from Panama,
who was six before Barrister, Pocatello. Lan
gar, and Annie Claire, following as named. The
time, was the best of the day.
resulted in as good a race as any one cares to
see, although the time (1.46J*) was not fast
When the starter lowered the flag the order was
Bess. Frank Ward, Boaz, and Brait. At the
quarter Bess was a head before Frank Ward,
he a length before Boaz. who was lapped by
Brait. At the half Frank Ward had managed
to get his head in front of the tnare, who was
the shortest of heads before Boaz and Brait.
When well in the turn Bess again assumed com
mand; the positions of the others remained as
before. It was now hammer and tongs between
the four, and no one could have picked the
winner a yard from home; but in the lad jump
"Spider" Anderson, by good riding, managed
to laud Bess by short head, Brait. Boaz. anil
Frank Ward following with not more than a
head between any of them.
THE TALENT DISAPPOINTED.
When the selling race camo the talent
plunged on the New York mare Maia as though
it was all over bar the shouting, but Mr. Burch
upset the good thing with his sleepy old mare
Romp, who. well ridden by Hamilton, won
rather handily. Wynwood jumped off with the
lead when the flag dropped, and followed by Le
ander, showed the way until half way dowii the
stretch, when Romp came away and won by a
length from Letretia who was five before Maia.
Wynwood, Leander and Dave 8. finished as

From the Ikmton Punt.
Master Hovey, of the old Phillips school
w hose death I spoke of some weeks ago. was in
the habit of teaching his boys geography in a
somewhat curious fashion. Taking up a morn
ing pajter he would turn to the shipping news
and read off the incoming vessels and ask the
class what cargoes they probably brought from
the ports from which they came. The clear
ances were treated in a similar w?y. and then
j the scholars were linked to hunt the wharves to
find what craft were in port aud what they had
for cargo or what they took out to their desti
nation. Ou one occasion one of the class said
his vessel was loaded with grain and gua car
riages. Where was it cleared for? Some slight
disturbance m Northern Africa was suggested,
but promptly put down, as Algeria, ouce the
gram field of Home, still produced cereals too
close at hand. A small war up the Adriatio
was looked upen with more favor by teacher
and boys alike, and the question was put if thia
were not the destination of the evidently war
laden ship. "No. sir." promptly answered the
waggishly-inclined student, "she cleared for
Fort Warren, boston harbor."
Churchill Contradicts Chamberlain.
New York Tribune Londou Cable.
Mr. Chamberlain has wTitten a long letter in
reply to the charges against him in connection
with the Birmingham election. He allegee, bat
does not prove, tnat no binding compact ex
isted between the liberal-unionists and the to
ri es to accept Lord Kaiidolph Churchill for ?
candidate. He has against him the positive
statement of Sir Joseph Sawyer, of Mr. Bow
lands. aud of other local tory leaders. For hits
appears only ilr. Powell Williams, w ho devila
for Mr. Chamberlain in politics. Lord Ban
dolph himself has been telegraphed to?he haa
been fishing in Scotland and replies that the
allegation that he would not accept an invita
tion to stand is absolutely inaccurate, and that
Mr. Bowlaud's statement is quite true. So Mr.
Chaniberlaiu will have to write another letter.
He aud his friends, by way of pouring oil on
the troubled waters of Birmingham, have
passed a resolution that the recent victory la
uiaiulv due to the liberal-unionists. The tones,
who tilink that they polled tour oat of the five
thousand votes given to Mr. Bright, received
this iu a temper which you can imagine. Tbue
it becomes more aud more probable that thia
quarrel may spread far Iteyoud Birmingham,
aud may result ill au open collision between
Mr. Chamberlain aud the tones. The liberals
accordingly look on with a smile which threat
