GRAND STAND ENLARGED ThV New "Wing "Will Ho Carried Out Ov:r the Old Ht'ttlinr Ding Pnd doeli Fully Three Time as Largo an the Old One to Bo Rullt Not Many Hordes nt the Tract Tliose of the racing people who are pre dicting a failure, both from a racing stand point and financially, for the Washington Jocko.. Club when they open their gates for the spring meeting at Bennings, would have their predictions "wet blanketed," should they take a trip to the track and see the improvements now under way there. Iu their attempt to revive the sport in this city, place it on a J-portsmanlike footing and create au interest iu clean legitimate racing, the members of the club intend to spare neither pains nor expense. There is no reason why the good old days when thousands of the elite of "Washington visited the track and a crowd of ten thou sand was an every day occurrence, should not be revived, and that revival is the object and aim of the Washington Jockey Club. The members of Unit body, who arc. all old-time racing men of much experi ence, underbtatid that this cannot be done so long as racing is conducted by gamblers apd for the sole purpose of financial gain. Knowing this they intend to 6ec that this contingent is kept entirely in the back ground and only the best element of racing society catereu to. SHOULD BE A SUCCESS. now successful they will be yet remains to be seen, but no one at all familiar with the question can doubt that when the public conies to realize that they can at tend the races without fear of coming in contact with all kinds .and conditions of humanity they would much prefer to hold aloof from, they will biialch at the cliance of witnessing the sport. lu carrying out this idea it was found it -would be impossible to give a high-class race meeting under the conditions they -ivereniming at, -without first making many improvements on the building: and stables at the grounds of the club. President Howland therefore caused plans to be drawn showing these necessary im provements, and after having them ap proved by the committee in charge of such work they -were put Into the Lands of com petent persons with instructions to carry them out, and "hang the expense." Work on these lines has been going on for i-ome tune, and when The Times visited the track jesterday the place was hardly recognizable. Track Superintendent Gor man has been at Bennings for the past month and has personallypverseen all of the work that has been done about the place. CLUBHOUSE MUCH CHANGED One of the biggest changes is in the grand stand and clubhouse. The latter is being completely overhauled and an addi tion addeil to it that has changed the ex terior entirely. The ivork has not yet reached a stage where it can be seen just -what the place will look like when finished, bdt the old clubhouse will be a thing of the past. The grand stand is being extensively en larged, the addition extending oat over the betting ring, which lies to the left as one enters tlie main gate into the track. The stand -will be carried out to the ex treme end of this structure, "which, by the ivay, under the new conditions will no J longer be used a a betting ring. This ring will be transformed into a lunch room, -with all modern conveniences, and the fruit, peanut and "Coney Island" sand wich stands, which -were run under the grandstand near the stairway, will be relegated to this part of the new stand. There will be very little work necessary on the track proiier, as it has always been kept in good repair for the use of the horse men who stable at the grounds. Down the back blretch it has suffered fomewhatfrom the weather, but a little shaping up will soon remedy this trouble. There will be several new stables built. They will be situated down Inthe hollow, the old stables which are over against the fence being torn down to make way for them. All or them will receive a rrosh coat of paint, as will In fact, every building, large and small, on the track. BRIDGE TO THE CLUBHOUSE. Iu connection with the clubhouse a covered bridge Is being built from it to the grandstand. The want of such a con venience was much felt on stormy days when it was very disagreeable walking over on the uncovered bridge that spanned this space. One tiling that will undergo a great improvement will be the paddock. - For such a large track tire old paddock at Ben niug was probably the worst in the country aud many is the horseman that has "cussed" at its crannied quarters. The old one will be torn down and one fully three times as large put up. As yet, work on this has not been started. It will not take very long to finish the job, however, when onre Air. Gormen gets his force of men at work. Box stalls will be provided, in the uew paddock, which will be quite an innovation. There are very few horses at Benning, most o f the horsemen whohavc been winter ing in the North preferring to remain there until Just before the meeting opens. They' have good accommodations at the New York tracks and would l.e taking chances to come down here and put up with in ferior quarters during the winter month. About the first of April, however, they may be expected to arrive in droves. In deed, so many have announced their In tention of taking part in the meeting that the probabilities are some will have to take quarters at the Ivy City track. JAIL IN DEFAULT. Ex-PtisiIst Dwyur nnd Companion Couldn't Furnish Hail. Daniel F. Dwyer. ex-prize fighter, and John J. Cunningham, who were arrested several davs ago by Detective Sutton, charged with an attempt to swindle Judge J. Ai. Lindsey of Texas, were brought up from the jail yesterday andarraigned before Judge Miller In the police court. Both pleaded not guilty to the charge of attempting to obtain money under false pretenses. His honor heard the evidence in the case, however, and considered It surriclently strong to hold the men for the action or the grand jury. He placed the amount or ball ai $1,000, limns neither man was able to funnsu that amount, they were both sent down again. Both men protest their Innocence, and say that they will make it hot ror some one when they regain their liberty. Dwyer claims to be in the city attending to a pension claim, now pending before tlie department. He said he came here from Jacksonville. Fla.. last spring. He had" about $1,200 when ho reached the city, but lost most of it at the race tracksacross the river. In support of his afatcments about the pension claim, he- shows communications from several people, among whom are Deputy Commissioner of Pensions Dominlck I. Murphy, Senator Edward Murphy, several pension exninineri, and Alexander Johnson, or No. 37 Mark's avenue, Brooklyn. Johnson is evidently a personal friend, an J in his letter advises him not to give up the fight for bis claim now, that he i& on the ground and can advocate his case in person. Dwyer was a private In Company II. Twenty-eighth Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry. HOCKEY AT THE ICE PALAQE. Hot Gnmo Expected nt the Hliik To morrow JTlglit. Every lady who buys a book of ten admis-lons for the Convention nail Ice Palaco today between the hours of 10 a. in. and 10:30 p. in. will receive as a touvcuir a pair of skates. These skates are made especially for ladies' use and arc the best on the market for that purpose. They are offered by the management of the hall as a touvenir and should attract a large number of the fair sex to the hall at eery .session. The hockey giuhc, which will be played tomorrow night between the Baltimore Athletic Club and the All-Washington team promises to be "an excellent display of science and skill in the new game. The Baltimore team is tl e one which met the Canadian team here a short time ago and is one of the strongest in this part or the country. While the Washington team does not expect to bent tlie Baltimore boj.s it will make an excellent j-howing, as the men under Capt. Libbey's direction have been practicing three times a week since the game with the Berkleys and are much better able to pick out the rinc points In the game i. id use them. The winning team will be awarded a gold medal, which is offered by Mannger Towers. The game will be called at 8 o'clock, and judging by tlie interest which has been awakened in the new sport, to tills vicinity at least, an immense crowd will Le en hand to witness It. Those who have been able to place a line on the work or the Washington team TCgard its practice as wonderful exhibitions or playing and are eonrident that they will make an ex cellent showing against tlie boys from the Monumental City. LINE UP OF BOCKEY TEAAIS. Alen "Who "Will Play in "Wednesday Nlght'H Game. The members oflhe Washington Hockey team, which meets thejteam from the Bal timore Athletic Club at the Ice Palace on Wednesday night, were hard at work yes terday morning under the direction of Cnpr. LIbbey, practicing for the game. The exact line-up of the team has not as yet been decided upon, but the men will be selectid from the following players: Lib bey, Enuls, Maize, Chancy, Morris, Tierney, Williams, Bushnell, Green, Sunderland and Crook. LIbbey, Atorris, Aiaize, and Tierney will surely participate iu the game, but the other men are as yet in doubt. The team from Baltimore is made up as follows: T. narrison, W. A. Bisneau, H. Perry, and E. Pannley, Jr., forwards; C. Corning, first dc-rense; C. Harrison, second dereuse; A. Poe, goal. This is one of the strongest aggregations in Baltimore, and It will be quite a feather In the cap of the local team ir they even succeed in scoring on them. Besults-nt New Orleans. New Orleans.

THE PHENOMENAL SUCCESS OP "THE PASS-1T-0N SOCIETY." The Hcginntnrj anil Remarkable Growth of a New Husi'ncss Enter prise The Record of Year. Life of Richard T;' Booth. . On Feb. 1st, 1895, the Rev Dr. Fnrrar, Pastor of the First Reiormeu(Churcu, of Brooklyn, wrote these wordsL , "Booth's Pocket inhaief works like a charm. The first inhalation gave relief. It is a blessing to humanity,' 'and r am sorry it is not better known. I udU my name to the "Pass-lt-On Society." , Sincerely yours, Rev. J. AI. FARltAR, D.D." 'l tic epigram was mi leiessthanustroKe or genius, it wus the origin of the hiost novel boeieiy or the age. By its aid And a little judicious advertising, there has been built up In one year a business tnorej successful man anything or the kind known to history. The "Pass-it-On Society" struck a pop ular cnord: it caught the public fancy, and to Jay, all over this conllnenr; in Europe, Asia, Afrlcu, and even the? islands of the Pnciflc, lliero are enrolled thousands or members, who have used and. ace actively engaged In passing on lo others Booth's HYOMEI, tne Australian ''DRY AIR" treatment of Asthma, Bronchitis, Catarrh, and alljhe diseases of the respiratory juchard T. Booth, a natlveof Ithaca, N. T., who for many years had been engaged In philanthropic retorm work, and whocounted among his friends and co-workers the great Spurgeon ami John B. Gough, broke down with lung complaint- To save his life the Into Sir Andrew Clark, AI. D. Air. Glad stone's physician, ordered him to Australia. His lire was saved, and he is here now restoring the health and saving the lives of thousands, who, like himself, have been stricken with throat and lung disease. Having discovered this new apd wonderful reuaedv and invented his Pocket Inhaler and ""DRY AIR" Exhaler, he opened an orrice January 1. 1895. at 18 East Twen tieth street. New York. Thesequarters were considered surrieienlly commodious Tor venrs to come: out in less than twelve months the"Pass-It-On Society" had done Its work so welt that Mr. Booth was forced to seek greater facilities to meet the demand ror his remedy. He has leased the entire building 23 East Twentieth street, two doors cast of Broadway, where there are beautiful reception and consulting rooms and every convenience ror his laboratcvy and working staff. Air. Booth desires to express his deep sense or gratitude to all those who have 6o largely contributed to themurvelouseuc cess obtained by HYOMEI. ThclateMr. Wyckoff or Wyckof r. Seamans & Benedict (owners of the Remington Type writer), a great friend of Hyomei, iiasseu it on to Congressman Francis H. Wilson of Brooklyn, who wrote this letter: Temple Court. New Y'ork City, .oveniDer ;s, io94. My Dear Mr. Wyckorr: On your sugges tion, I procured from your Mend, Air. Booth, one of his Pocket Inhalers. It has worked like a charm. The Bronchitis has entirely disappeared, aud, thanks to you, Is the rirst thing I have round in ten years that has given permanent relief. There is cer tainly a great Held for a remedy having such merit. - F. H. WIL80N, W. O. Wyckoff, Esq., care of Wyckoff , Sea mans & Benedict, 327 Broad wiy, New York. it may be asked what Is HYOMEI that has awakened such enthusiasm and led so many thousands to earnestly engage, In paslug It ou? It is a .purely antiseptic inhalent, which destroys the germs winch cause diseases of the respiratory organs. When iu haled it ghes instant rcher in Asthma, removes the oriensive effluvia and accumulations of catarrh. Perma nently cures Uronctiltis and rons croup of Us terrors. HYOMEI freely inhaled will check and prevent a cold in an hour's time and is an absolute proiection against those infectious diseases that particularly attack the organs or respiration. Is it any wonder that such a meritorious remedy should set people talking and writ ing? .Mr. Dooth has thousands or unsolicited letters rrom members or the "Pass-lt-On Society" attesting the virtues orHYOAlEI.

A letter from the president of Ecuador to the queen regent of Spain, written December 19 lust, mid expressing senti ments favorable to free Cuba, has just ( gotten iuto print. The letter Is as fol lows: The Supreme .Chief or the Republic or Ecuador to Her Majesty, the Queen Maria Christina, Regent of Spain. Majesty: The people of Ecuador, which once formed pan. of the Spanish monarchy, and to which it is bound by tieb of lnetdship or blood, of language, ai.d or traditions, are deepiy moved, in tnepieseuce of the ter rible aim devastatitig struggle carried on between Cuba, for her political emanci pation, and the mother country for the integrity of her territory. My government, complying with interna tional laws, will observe the neutrality wnioh they prescribe; but it cunuot remain dear to the clamor or this people dsslrous or the termination or the struggle. EXAMPLE OF COLOMBIA. And ltis due to this thatl have the honor to address your majesty, as an emanci pated child would do to an atrectionate mother, to interpose the good offices or friendship, and to usk your majesty that in your wisdom Ld Inspired by your humanitarian and nonle sentiments, you adopt all digniried means to return peace to Spain and Cuba. Our history records that during fifteen long years Colombia fought for tier inde pendence and conquered at the cost of more than two hundred thousand lives, of the almost extinction of her public and private debt, aud of a legacy or an un liquidated debt of $200,000,000; and the course of time has been necessary in order that the Old colonies, already constituted into autonomous' nations, should renew officially the ties or friendship with the mother country. Spain lost almost all her commerce with America, notwithstand ing that immediately alter the attainment oi her Independence, Colombia permitted the admission or the Spanish flag in her ports, and Spuuiaids were welcomed as brothers', brothers. Such great evils could have been avoided, in my opinion, ir Spain would have fol- lowcu ine pruueut auvice given tier at an opportune time by the British cabinet, and which consisteo in tnat spam should con clude pence with her colonies by recogniz ing their Independence, reserving to her seif advantages then still possible for her fld. TEACHINGS OF EXPERIENCE. The current of commerce would not have been diverted, and the communion of both countries would have suffered no interrup tion. Your majesty knuws that it was only under the reign or her august huslkind, Al fonso XII, or glorious memorv, when the official relations between Spain and her children finally became cordial. It would seem wise to follow now tbe teachings or experiences ml the counsel of the British cabinet, given in a similar case, at the epoch to which I rerer. Bv granting Cuba her independence Spain will protect her Interests and will have done justice to the aspirations of Cuba without any loss of decorum. 1 beg your majesty to receive this letter as a proof of the loal friendship which Ecuador professes to Spain, ror only a high motive imiiels me to address it to you, as well as my sincere desire to see the glory of your throne increase, or the throne which you, with so much prudence ....u iuii3i6ui, ueeuiy iu cue name aim rep resentation of your august child, Alfonso .XI II, whom God save. 1 make vows ror the happiness of Spain, chiYd'be klIlg.n'ilJ,r'dty, d"d ot OUr ausirsc 4lLn. in GuajJaquil, residence or the government, on the l'Jth or December, lSr?.' ,., .

Judge VaWents this morning decided the Jones-Pulitzer injunction suit in favor of the plaintiff. In the twenty-eight pages of the declsln. .the court sets forth the reasons why the temporary injunction should be made per manent. This does not finally dispone of the mat tor, as an appeal will be taken. The ground of the action set forth in the petition ot Plaintiff Jones, is, that the board of di rectors or the Pulitzer Publishing Company were about to depoe him as editor and manager of the Post-Dispateh, and he asked an injunction to restrain them, setting up a contract -with Joeph Pnlitzer as over riding any action of the lioard, who are. he claims, merely stockholders by courtesy. This contract records the purchase by Jones from Pulitzer, of a one-sixth interest in the Post-Dispatch, and gives Jones the position of editor and manager ot the paper for five vears, nt a salary of $10,000 per year. Defendants ay the contract Is per sonal between Jones and Pulitzer and noc binding on the publishing company as a corporation.
