Islington, Ky Sept lt-The great 1st alarm baa been caused by the re port from both the Owens and Breckln ridge headquarters that hundreds of men, secretly armed, will be at each polling place In this city to-morrow for the purpose of protecting their re- tpective challenges. It Is announced that every voter whose affiliation with the democratic party is now well established or refuses to pledge his support to the nominee will be denied his ballot by the Breck- lnrldge election officers. To overcome the Iobs from this move the Owens or ganizers declare their intention to chal lenge every Breckinridge man who ap proaches the polls and thus by delay ing the election force their opponents to be fair. The result of these counter- purposes will be to cause the most dangerous confusion to-morrow and there are the gravest fears of riots in Lexington. The mayor to-day by proclamation commanded all saloons to remain closed during the progress of the primary. and an extra force of police will be on duty at every point where trouble is expected. The approaches to each vot ing place will be guarded by a long railing, within which but one man at a time can pass. It Is apparent that while the Breckin ridge managers have the organization and the powerful machinery of the par ty and the financial strength of the district, money Is being raised In gen- 'erous quantities to be used against Breokinridge to-morrow. One young lady in Lexington to-day raised $500 among the wealthy women of the city, Mrs. Francis K. Hunt, president of the 'Woman's association, is very prom inent in the crusade. She said to-night "Our cause is won." The city is full of people to-night to witness the closing of the campaign, The Breckinridge forces had a big pro cession and the colonel '"and number of his friends spoke from the court house steps, while Mr. Owens and his friends occupied the opera house. There is much betting at two to one against Breckinridge winning to-morrow's primaries. i ., Heavy Slaughter of Japanese.""

Ha is Bound to Gain Possession of His Son. Rochester, N. T 8ept 14. Ferdinand ' Ward, of Grant & Ward fame, made a statement her to-day concerning the unsuccessful attempt to secure posses- slon of his son at Thompson, Conn., Mr. Ward said that Geneseo, his place of residence, was a better place for the boy than Thompson, for many reasons. In the first place there Is a state normal school there, which the lad could at tend. Besides that the boy would be with his father; who Is competent to take care of him. Mr. Ward has a com fortable home In Geneseo, his relatives 1 Mil 11. ,kBM .! hA .kl.l.. - au MB J.AHJUUP, bua-v UK VUJT WUU1U De much better off there than in Thomp son. Mr. Ward stated that the Greens of Thompson were simply appointed as agents to care for the lad while he was In Sing Sing and that all they desire Is the 120 a week which Is allowed them for their trouble. The boy's mother.be fore her death, expressed a desire that the boy should be with his father on the tatter's, release from Sing Sing, and the boy himself is anxious to go to his father. ' Mr. Ward is very determined and says he will ultimately get possession of his son. All that he has done so far has been done under legal advice, he Is the lad's legal guardian 'and he proposes to have him with him. Mr. Ward said that while in Webster yesterday he defied the authorities to arrest him for connection with the kid napping, and that although a great crowd was in the street outside of the office in which he sat most of the mem bers of which, including a couple of ministers, were urging the -police to take him, no attempt was made to do so. . Mr. Ward expressed the belief that someone must have warned the Greens of his Intended visit . The reason he did not go boldly to the Green place and get his boy was that he feared that he might do something lie would be sorry, for, and so be sent A agent , ' " f - - , ixcexdiabieb aftub yxtehaxs, Two Attempts Barn the Soldiers Home Vashlnsjton.

The first fires, which were compara tively trivial In the amount of loss, had been conquered, and the force engaged In extinguishing them had returned to their beds when a second alarm, which proved serious, called them out again. Tne exact amount of the loss is not es timated. Several haystacks were con sumed, and from the persistence of the incendiary attacks It looks very much as ir some person is endeavoring to burn the old soldiers completely out of nouse ana home.

Positively Declines to Ban for Governor of New York. New York, Sept 14. Chauncey M, Depew returned home to-day on the steamer New Tork and announced posi tively that he would not be a candidate for governor of the state of New York. Dr. Depew said that it was too late in the day for him to think about the nomination. It had been offered to him before he went away, and he had at that time declined to run. He felt that it would be unfair for hlmi at this time, only three days from the time of the convention, to come into the field, when others had remained at home and made their canvass with the understanding that he was not to be a candidate. Mr. Depew said: "Before I went to Europe for my vacation representatives of each faction of my party came to me and assured me that If I .would consent to accept the nomination for governor I could have it But there were condi tions imposed. I would have had to give up my trip abroad and enter ait once upon my canvass. I refused to do so. and declined the honor, I have not changed my mind since." Mr. Depew stated that i.ttie men who had called upon him were sufficiently strong in each faction to guarantee ev erything they said, and they had as sured him that he could have the unan imous nomination. Mr. Depew, remark ed: "I cannot imagine any combination of circumstances that would now In duce me to run." Mr. Depew was told that Levi P. Mor ton seemed to be the strongest candi date mentioned so far, but he made no comment. Asked if he had a prefer ence for any one candidate, he replied promptly: "No, I am for the republi can candidate, no matter who he Is." Mr. Depew stated that he would make speeches and do all In his power for the success of the republican ticket , ' The Boy Murderer Arrested, Connellsvllle, Pa., Sept 14.

Year-Old Pao lo Record, and Alls Made the Soma Time She Did on Wednesday, . Terre Haute, Ind Sept 14. Tolay was the greatest record-breaking day ever seen on the track. To-night every one is wearing a long ribbon with the new record miles printed on It Robert J. paced a mile In 2:014; Carbonate lowered the two-year-old pacing record from 2:10 to 2:09; John R. Gantry made the stallion record for pacers 2:0314, and did so in a race. Directly tied Carbon ate's record of 2:10 for two-year-old pacers me earlier In the week; Joe Patchen paced a mile in 2:04, beating the atalllon record of 2:05U. which held good until earlier in the day when Gen try set the new mark, and Allx trotted a second mile In 2:04tt In the same week, which never, before had been done. Early in the day the weather was sul try, threatening rain. The track was fast and the horses announced for record miles were In first class condl tlon. In the unfinished free-for-all pace in which Hal Braden won a heat pools were selling Braden $25 and John R. Gantry and Flying Jib the field, at $18, Reflector having been distanced. The Gantry people were weak in their faith, too, because Braden had gone the first three-quarters yesterday at a speed that gave good hope of as good as 2:04 at least Flying Jib was crankier than usual 'this noon, and after several bad attempts to get away the Braden and Gantry horses were sent away with Jib dancing 100 yards back of the wire. To the quarter the two contestants went together In 31 seconds, and at the half, which wab made in 1:014, Gantry was half a length behind. At the three quarters, which was made In 1:314. Mc Henry drove Gantry to a lead of half a length They came around on the stretch so placed, and two hundred feet from the wire Geers gave up hope with Braden, seeing whloh McHenry jogged in with Gantry In 2:03, which could have been 2:03 or 2:03. Then the pool selling changed decid edly back to Gantry as a favorite as he was before the first heat yesterday, The barrel of money originally bet on him was made as near two barrels as his backers could find takers. In the next heat the two went away slowly, reaching the quarter in 32 as a team, and were so at the half in 1:02. Gen try took the lead at the three-quarters, whloh was passed in 1:33. Coming home the race was seen to be over, and Gantry was taking his time In 2:06, Geers with Braden again relinquishing a futile effort to overtake the stallion. The third heat was exactly like the other two, except that the time was, as slow as 2:07. It was 2:30 when Robert J. started to beat his own record of 2:02. The at mosphere was yet sultry, but the clouds had disappeared and the wind had gone down.' The king made a bad break in the second scoring, but on the third attempt got away well In the center of the track, so that he might the better get around the first short turn of the four-cornered track. It was seen that he was at his best, and when the quar ter was caught in 30 hope was strong. The runner, who was making the pace, came alongside near the half In 1:00, and the six thousand people broke into cheers. The three-quarters was reach ed In 1:03, making the middle of the mile In the phenomenal time of 59 seconds, or at the rate of 1:59. He came home strong and went under the wire with the apparent courage and effort of his first quarter. The 2:01 was put up at once. There was no dispute among either the official timers or the many expert timers among t,he horsemen gathered In the stand. The cheering which be gan with the sight of the figures had not ceased when Geers came back to the wire with the Hamlin entry. The track was covered with the people. Some of them caught him up on their shoulders and carried him to the fence in front of the grand stand, where he was again received with cheers. Start er Loper announced the mile and the record made and! the people again broke into cheers. Then President Ijams of the Terre Haute Trotting as sociation got Into the stand and said The Terre Haute track does not heed cheers; it is always in it" And again the crowd cheered. Soon afterwards Joe Patehen was brought out He was to be sent to beat the stallion pacing record of 2:05, held until Gantry's mile was made earlier to-day. He went the first quar ter in 30, the half in 1:01, the three quarters In 1:32 and the mile in 2:01 . Allx made a 2:04 mile. She was hot equal to the task of lowering It She acted badly in starting, and the "good judges of horse racing" said that per haps the racing queen, was being asked to do too much. She went to the quar ter in 31, half a second faster than on Wednesday, to the half in 1:02, Nancy Hank's time on the same traok two years ago and a second faster than Allx arrived there two days ago. She went to the third quarter in 1:83, Just as she did on the other occasion, but she could not come, home fast enough, When the 2:04 was shown there was not a ripple of applause.. The mile was great one for the little mare, con sidering what she' had been -icouflted upon to do this year, but the crowd was unappreclatlve. i - , Directly, the black son of the black whirlwind Direct went to beat the 2:10 mile, made by the two-year-old pacta colt Carbonate the other day and which 2:10 took quarter of a second from the two-year-old record made by Directly few weeks ago, but he could do. no better than tie the new record. Later in the afternoon Carbonate was sent to beat his own 2:10 and did It se hand somely that next to Robert J. be was the Idol of the day., M the Ant auarjer the watches caught 81. Geers came up with him at the half In 1:03 and the 2:07 gait was thought to be crowd ing the gray colt so fast that he could not get home ahead of the 2:10 record. The three-quarters was passed In 1:35 and he came under th wire In 2:09. Joe Patchen's 2:04 Is the fourth 2:04 mile over the 2:04 trackw Mascot, Nancy Hanks and Allx have tho others to their credit COXFESBED TO MWDEB.

The annual report of the Consolidated just issued shows gross earnings of $25,676,884, a decrease of $2,182,083, or' nearly 8 per cent, from the year next preceding. The shrinkage Is entirely phargable to the depression in bus! ness, which existed during the whole year. The loss of local business has been entirely uniform on all branches of the system. The company has chaiared to operating expenses during the last year the things which It has been in the habit of charging to that account In previous years, and many unusual charges have . been made against income, notably in connection with the unification of the property ac quired under the lease of the Old Colony railroad. The report speaks of the big im provements made on the lines ofthe road and still in progress. The Increase of the business of the company will soon require an enlarge ment of its facilities at New Haven, involving a change of location of the passenger station.

Miss Ives acted as spokesman. She gave a brief report of the meeting which had been held (as elsewhere reported). asked the board to aid them as much as possible In the election of the women candidates. They had had volunteers to go to the polls at seven wards, and there would probably be representatives at the polls In all the wards. Miss Ives also stated that pasters were to be prepared. Mr. Whitney at this point Informed her that It would be rather an Innovation to Introduce pasters Into school elections, as It was not customary. Miss Ives thanked him for the Information, and went on to say that she hoped the members of the board would individually assist them in the election of their tloket, The ladles then thanked the gentle men for their attention, and with drew. The hush of interested attention had pervaded the board during Miss Ives' recital. After they withdrew Mr. Mor gan remarked, "I tell you, gentlemen they are on a hustle." This sentiment was seconded by all the members, Mr. Asher remarked that when females were on the board the males will have to attend the meetings in full dress suits. There was some pretty rapid and spicy talking for a few moments.

Architect Robinson, who has been preparing plans for the new high school building to be submitted to the district meeting, was present and ex hibited the plans to the board. The new building, as planned, is an ele gant structure, which would cost $375,- 000 in the construction and $125,000 more to equip it Yet it is said that It Is a building of this kind that is re quired to meet the pressing needs of the district, and come up to the stan dard of modern requirements. It will accommodate about 1,400, as against the 700 which are accommodated In the Hlllhouse high school. The building, however, Is four times as large as the present high school, but there Is a great deal more space taken up in cor ridors, laboratories, toilet rooms, etc. It will be a three-story brick building, with stone and terra cotta trimmings.

Meeting of Candidate for the Football Team Yesterday, Captain Beck of the football team called a meeting of candidates yester day in room 8. The meeting was called to order at 1:05 p. m. with Beck In the chair. The object of the meeting was to And how many candidates there were In the school. Practice will commence this morning at 10 a. m. at Orange and Lawrence streets. On account of the manager of the Yale Atbletlo sssocla tlon not being In town the field could not bs had. Beck made a few remarks In which he stated that the reputation of Hlllhouse must be redeemed. Several experienced football men have offerd their help, and Hlllhouse must have s good team. Remarks were made on the Boardman Manual Training school team. President Gllson of the Inter-Scholas tic Football association talked In favor of the admission of the school In the state league. Beck opposed very hard the Idea of admitting the school In question to the league. Others spoke on the question, Inferring that It was the wish of the training school team only to down Hlllhouse. The question was then brought up that If the state league would change their constitution so as to Include only high schools, the train ing school thus being left In the lurch, It would be just the thing. The general opinion prevails among the scholars, especially with the boys, that the new school wishes to down them on the football field. It Is per hnps their Intention to win all the fame on the field to be had, If they can, but It Is rather bad if the high school boys taik In favor of keeping them out of the state league just so Hlllhouse will have a better chance for the ban ners. If It were some outside school that ob jected It would be easily seen that they feared them, but when Hiirhouse, which has conquered all on the field, recom mend their delegate to vote against the admission of the training school they show a rather weak heart. There should be no rivalry between the two schools, and If there were to be Hlll house should not be the first to think of it. WEDDIXO IX WOODBBIDQE. Marriage of Miss Clara W. Peck and Her. bert H.
