THE WORLD OF SPORT. THE CHICAGO DERBY WON BY AN OUTSIDER. The Death of James Fogarty at Philadel phia— Correotion Still Beating all the Three-Year-Olds. California horses did not distinguish themselves on the eastern tracks yester day. Nero failed to capture the Chicago Derby. The horse has evidently not yet recovered from his long trip from this coast to Chicago. He will turn the tables on Brookwood or any of the so called western three-year-olds before the season is very much older. The $35,000 Bolero failed to get better than third at Gravesend. The decision of the referree at New Orleans is a remarkable one. He gave the fight to Bowen on a foul, yet he calls all bets off and divides the purse. The records of Peter Jackson and Jim Corbett, the principals in the great fight tonight, appear on another page of the Herald. the chicago berbi, Nero Falls to Win the Race—Brookwood Beats the Favorite. Chicago, May 20.—T„e new track" of the Chicago Racing association was opened today. It is located at Thirty fifth and West Forty-6ighty streets. The track, as most new tracks are, was spongy and slow. In spite of the cloudy and somewhat threatening weather, about ten thousand people were present. BROOKWOOD WINS THE DERBY. The feature of the day's sport was the third race, the Chicago Derby, for three year olds, mile and a quarter. The starters were: Nero, Silverado, Dundee and Brookwood. Nero was the favorite, and'piles of money were bet on him. The horses were sent away at the first attempt, on even terms. Silverado jumped to the front, and at the stand was leading Nero two lengths, with Brookwood last. On the turn Nero made a spurt, and when the back stretch was reached, had taken the-lead from Silverado by half a length; the others were two lengths away. In the far turn, Kiley let loose on Brookwood, and took second place from Silverado, and kept on forging ahead. A sixteenth from the wire, Brookwood had gotten ahead and came in strong, winning easily by two lengths. Dundee made up a great deal of ground he had lost, and beat Nero for the place. Silverado was two lengths behind Nero. Time, 2:17. OTHER RACES. Three-year-olds and upward, six fur longs—Outlook won, Helter Skelter sec ond, Bob Jacobs third; time, 1:17.

San Francisco, May 20. —Jim Cor bitt and Peter Jackson rested from their training today, and tomorrow evening the great heavy-weight contest will occurr at the gymnasium of the California Athletic club. Both pugilists have been visited at their training quar ters by a great number of sporting men, and the most critical examination has failed to reveal any fault in the physical condition of either. So far as can be learned from the contestants themselves, each is perfectly satisfied that if he loses it will be because the other is the better man. Corbett's present weight is 187 pounds, and he looks the embodiment of vigorous manhood and cheerfulness. He ran and walked twelve miles Tuesday, and in addition punched the bag and sparred with his trainer. Jackson punched the bag for the last time Tuesday night, flogging it for spells of twenty minutes. He was then rubbed down and weighed an<! turned the scales at 197}£ pounds. Belting has become spirited during the last twenty-four hours. Great crowds gathered in the pool rooms tonight, and* a large amount of money was wagered the usual odds being 100 to 65, wiU> Jackson the favorite. OUR JIM gone. ' Philadelphia, May 20. —Tames G.

Only a fortnight since his brother, Jack, was taken down with a hemor rhage, and his condition is very critical. Mrs. Fogarty and Miss Fogarty have the sympathy of many friends in their afflic tion. The writer knew James Fogarty when he first started out on his base ball career.

Walla Walla, Wash., May 20.—At the court of inquiry, today, Corporals Winter, Wilder, Hatfield and Smith were examined. Soldiers told Captain Smith's two little boys that they were going to lynch Hunt, but their father thought nothing of it. The feature of the day's testimony was that of James Casey, a saloon-keeper and ex-so'.dier. On the night of the lynching Casey was at the jail and talked with the sol diers. He was the only citizen admitted inside. He also warned the officers that lynching would be committed. Light soldiers have been arrested and are in irons. It is understood that the grand jury has also indicted them. Six more supposed to have been implicated have deserted. It is believed that all en gaged in the lynching will be appre hended.

THE CHASE GIVEN DP The Charleston Called Off the Itata's Track. Such Are the Advices Received from Paris. Secretary Tracy, However, Contra dicts the Report. It Is Possible Though That Such Orders Will Be Given—The Esmer alda's D'lemma. % _______ Associated Press Di.patches. Paris, May 20.—Delegates from the congressional or insurgent party of Chile, who are now in this city, say that acting upon instructions they pre sented a note to Reid, United States minister here, asking him to communi cate with his government, and ask the United States officials to countermand the instructions sent to Captain Remy of the cruiser Charleston in regard to the pursuit of the Itata, and Reid com municated the request of the delegates to his government, with the result that the United States officials acceeded to it. A dispatch received here from Chile says Admiral La Terre, President Bal maceda's commissioner, has resigned, owing to the fact that he is in sympathy with the congressional party. TRACY DENIES THE PARJS REPORT. Washington, May 20.—N0 word has yet been received from the Charleston or the Itata. Secretary Tracy says there is no truth in the report from Paris that insurgent envoys have induced the United States government to discontinue the pursuit of the steamer. "For some time past," said Tracy, "the govern ments of France and Brazil have been co-operating with the government of the United States to secure a restoration of peace in Chile. Therefore, if it should be made apparent to the United States government, through suggestions of the French government, or otherwise, that the object for which the three great republics are now striving—the restora tion of peace in Chile —can be brought within reach by relaxing the pursuit of the Itata, it may be that this course will be adopted, especially as it can now be ascertained that the United States has used 'due diligence' in its effort to pre serve honorable neutrality." THE ESMERALDA IN A DILEMMA. ' San Francisco, May 20.—A Washing ton special to the Evening Post says: The United States government has in structed Admiral Brown to demand the immediate surrender of the Itata when she arrives at any of the ports of Chile in the hands of the' insurgents. The Mexican government has refused to al low the commander of the Esmeralda at Acapulco to use the telegraph lines at that point, so that the Esmeralda is held there practically a prisoner. She has no coal and cannot get any, and she cannot get communication with the in surgents in Chile. Feeling against Mex ico among the Chilean insurgents is very bitter, and the Esmeralda would bombard Acapnlco immediately if her officers and the insurgents at home were not afraid of the interference of the United States. NO official information. Washington, May 20.—Sefior Men donca, the Brazilian minister, was asked tonight if he had any official information concerning mediation by the govern ments of Brazil, France and the United States, with a view to the restoration of peace between the conflicting factions in Chile. He replied he had no official in formation whatever on the subject. The only intelligence he had received was that contained in the newspapers. WHY BALMACEDA REFUSED MEDIATION. London, May 20.J-A Times Lisbon dispatch says: President Balmaceda ruptured the mediation negotiations because he hoped to borrow money from Germany,and he succeeded in procuring cannon from England for the cruiser President Pinto. THE ITATA INCIDENT SETTLED. Hamburg, May 20.—Boersenhalle, a political and commercial newspaper of this city, says today : The Itata incident has been settled with the American ad miral at Iquique. NAVAL ENCOUNTERS. Some Exciting Skirmishes Off the Coast of Chile. Iquique, May 20. —On Sunday morn ing, about half-past 4 o'clock, the Chile an insurgent torpedo cruiser Almirante Lynch was sighted off Punta de Pie dra by the Chilean warship Al mirante Cochrane, which immediately gave chase, but was soon left far behind by the fast-sailing torpedo vessel. The Almirante Lynch steamed away in a northerly direction, and was never within range of the ironclad's guns. In the meantime the authorities tele graphed to Pisagua, where the Huascar ana Magallanes were anchored, and these vessels started to cut off the Al mirante Lynch, and sighted her off Junina. The Huascar, when it was thought she was in range of the cruiser, fired some light shots, which were returned by the enemy. The Almirante Lynch, however,'gradually got away from the Huascar, apparently without damage. Great excitement prevailed yesterday evening, when the Imperiale was seen off Cavancha. About ten miles from the coast she began firing rapidly, as if fighting desperately, but no enemy was in sight. The Cochrane and O'Higgins went out at full speed, but the Imperiale soon disappeared. While a launch of the Cochrane was fixing a torpedo for defense in cane of an attack, the torpedo exploded. One man was drowned and several injured. Boats from the San Francisco rescued two men.
