Allerton Again Trots a Mile in 2:09 1-4. Will Nelson, Nancy Hanks and Allerton Come Together? Opening Day of the Nevada State Fair Races. Chicago and Huston Still Keep Up Their Winning tick—Woods Beat Davis in the Heavy Weight Fight. This has been a great year for record breaking. Allerton's 2 will long be remembered. It ia the second fastest mile ever trotted. In 1884, MaxeyCobb reduced the stallion record to 2:135£, but this mark has been knocked into smithereens in the past three years. The four fastest trotters that ever lived are Maud S., 2:08> 4 ; Allerton, ; Jay Eye See, 2:10, and Nelson, 2:10. a * * Zimmerman continues to break records on the bicycle. The tracks are not any better than they were two years ago, but the racing machine lias made great strides, hence the cuts in the records. WOODS THE WINNER. The Denverite Proved to Be Too Much for the Omaha Man. San Fbancisco, Sept. 21. —Billy Woods, of Denver, and Jack Davis, of Omaba, met at the Pacific club tonight for a $3000 purse. The men were very evenly matched, weighing about 170 pounds each. Davis was seconded by Bob Fitzsimmons. Jack Dempsey was referee. First round—After some feinting Woods landed left and right body blows. Second round—Davie landed his righi on Woods's' ear. A left drive tinged Woods's nose with red. Third round—Davis several times rushed Woods to the ropes. Fourth round —Woods landed a good left on Davis's cheek. Fifth round—Davis got inacnupleof hot ones on the jaw, staggering Woods. Sixth round —The men were now get ting in close quarters, but not taking chances. Woods seemed disposed to clinch. Seventh round—Woods lauded a short let* OU the point of the jaw, staggering Davis. • Eighth round—Woods was sent to the ground twice, with right swings, ac the round closed. Ninth round—Opened with Daviß chasing Woods around the ring on a run, Woods hiding his face, and Daviß landing his right on the back of his neck. Woods suddenly retaliated with his right on Davis's jaw, dazing him for a minute. The men then slugged each other a close range until both groggy, hammering each other about the head— Woods with half-arm drives and Davis upper-cutting with his right. Woods caught him as the gong sounded and Davis went down and was carried to his corner. Tenth round—Davis recovered quickly and rushed Woods about the ring. Eleventh round—Davis slipped to the floor in his own corner from Woods's two-handed drives. He was dazed and bleeding freely from the left eye and mouth. He appeared blinded with blood. Twelfth round—Woods brought blood with ri„ht hand smashes. Thirteenth round—Woods had swell ing of the left cheek. He caught Davis on the head with a right smash, send ing him to one knee. Aa he rose, Woods again sent him to the ropes, smashing his helpless opponent with his right. Davis was unable to respond. Fitzsimmons rushed into the ring, and a fight waa narrowly avoided between Woods and the wrathy New Zealander, who claimed a foul. The Denverites eided with their man, and the ring waa soon filled with struggling, excited men. Dempsey vainly endeavored to restore order. The police then entered the ring, and, Davis announcing that he would give up the fight, the referee declared Woods the winner. ■ THE SECOND FASTEST MILE.

Large Tracts of Laud Heretofore Closed by Litigation to Be Opened to Settle ment—News Notes. There has been a great falling off of late in Southern Pacific land sales. The sales by Land Agent Jerome A. Madden for the first eighteen days of the present month amounted to only $12,387.31, which was the price paid for 2225 acres of land, against $26,128.52, the price for 3505 acres in the same period last year. The total sales for August were only $7787.73 for 1213 acres, against $55, --972.87 for the same month in 1890. This great decrease in the revenue of the Southern Pacific company is directly attributable to the fact that large tracts of railroad land in the counties of Los Angeles and San Bernardino have been tied up in litigation for the last year. A recent decision of the United States circuit court in favor of the company gives it a clear title to these Los Angeles and San Bernardino lands, and Mr. Madden looks for a great increase in sales before long. NOTES. Freight Auditor C. J. Wilder, of the Southern Pacific company, has gone east. Howard F. Kennedy has been ap pointed San Francisco passenger agent of the Chicago and Northwestern in place of G. W. Arbuckle, who has re signed to return to the Phillips' excur sion agency. The Southern Pacific company has set a large force of men to work to recon struct the portion of its main line be tween Yuma and Liquria, on the Colora do desert. Twenty-six miles of track will be relaid on a new and higher road bed. President Manvel, of the Santa Fe, will arrive in the city tomorrow. Detective Will Smith, of the Southern Pacific company, returned to Visalia yesterday, to hear the sentence of Dal ton, the Alila train robber, which oc curs on Wednesday. Mrs. W. J. Hamilton, wife of Train Dispatcher Bob Hamilton, of the South ern Pacific, is an artist of recognized merit. She has presented two very well execited Southern California views to the dispatchers, which now adorn the walls of their room at the Arcade depot. Mrs. Hamilton passed yesterday sketch ing at San Juan Capistrano. Dead Notables. Nashville, Term., Sept. 21. —Ex-Con- gressman W. C.

Yesterday was law and motion day in tbe superior courts, and there was little of public interest in the civil de partments of the superior court. In de partment Xo. one the trial was begun of Sien Yuen, charged with the murder of Wong Fong Deck, at La Canada, on April 20th last, the details of which havesheretofore been given in these col umns. The morning session was occu pied in the selection of a jury, which was impaneled by noon. The case will be vigorously con ducted on both sides. J. Marion Brooks and Colonel G. Wiley Wells appear for the defendant, and in this case the pros ecution has outside counsel, Messrs. Del Valle and Munday appearing in that capacity. The jury as impaneled is as follows: James Chapin. G. W. Adams, O. H. Wright, W. Ashmead, J. Setright, F. M. Matthews, B. F. Bixby, STK. -Jrmee, G. Hi Tike, A, M, Peck, J. F. Branch and F. E. htockwcll. The taking of testimony began in the afternoon, but not much headway was made. Coroner Weidon was on the stand in the afternoon, and gave his testi mony substantially as at the preliminary examination. The trial will be resumed this morning. United States Commissioner Van Dyke will this morning »rr«;<»n for ex amination a boy named Toe Cox, who is charged with stealing a letter iruuu ilie postoffice in Pomona, which contained a $2 greenback. He was brought to the city Saturday night, aud is now in the county jail, bail not yet having been fixed. He is accused of having taken the letter from one of the receiving boxes, where it was placed by the send er. The box was full, and Cox is said to have pried it out, one corner not be ing thoroughly shoved in. He was de tected in tbe act, and his arrest fol lowed. The time for his examination and the amount of bis bail will be fixed today by the commissioner. NOTES. A term trial jury of fifty was drawn in tbe United States court yesterday morn ing, and are now being served by the marshal's office. Before United States Commissioner Van Dyke yesterday morning Rose Ra mirez Silves, who has been charged with sending an obscene letter through the mails, was discharged, the evidence not being sufficient to warrant the defend ant being held. Two citizens were made yesterday, both natives of Norway, one by Judge Shaw, H, S. Waller, and one by Judge Smith, H. Sornson. In department five yesterday, in the insolvency proceedings of C. N. Earl, the court appointed Wm. J. Washburne as signee, with bonds fixed at $10,000. A judgment on the pleadings for $6,585 was rendered in department four yesterday in the foreclosuresuitof O. H. Churchill vs. Cutler Arnold et al. In the same department it was an nounced that the case of Risseau us. Freeman, a suit for damages, had been settled out of court.

The appeal case of People vs. Ah Wong was submitted in department six yesterday on biiefs. The will of the late auditor. Convers Howe, was filed for probate yesterday. He bequeathes all his property, real and personal, to his four sons — Robert Curtis, Edward C, Walter C, and Louis P. Howe, share and share alike, on con dition that no payment, dividend or distribution be made until the children arrive at the age of 24 years. The estate is valued at $10,000, consisting of real and personal property in Pomona. NEW SUITS. Samuel J. Fleming began suit against E. H. Winans for $1700, which he claims as salary due him from the Chautauqua Assembly of Southern California. He alleges that the defendant agreed to pay him $200Q July 27, 1891, for all claims he had against the society, and that he has oa\y received $300 of this amount. DID HE SLEEP? Officer Rich Charged With Partiality for Pullman Cars. Chief Glass and Police Commissioner Lewis were occupied yesterday in hear ing about the charges preferred against Officer Rich. A Mr. Cochran is the complaining witness. He is the night watchman of the coaches at tbe Santa Fe depot. He stated yesterday that he saw Officer Rich in a reclining position on a Beat in a Pullman. The witness would not swear that Rich was asleep. John O'Toole also testified that he had seen Officer Rich coming out of the coaches on several occasions, and once upon a time saw him in a reclining po sition. At police headquarters the reporter was informed that Officer Rich was de tailed to enter the coaches and look out for some thieves. The captain said that there waa nothing in the charge and that it was a piece of spite work from begin ning to end, worked up by a man who bad a grudge against the officer. "RATS!" THE RESULT OF THAT EXPLETIVE TO THE LADIES' ANNEX. A Spirit of Harmony Prevailing Among the Members—The Cry ol Rodents Causes a Momentary Stir—Proceedings at Yesterday's Meeting. The ladies' annex is still alive, and some of its members are determined that it shall not go under. A meeting was held yesterday afternoon, at which the insurgent party were apparently in the majority and wanted to discontinue, but the presiding officer appointed a committee to lay the facts of the situa tion before the board of directors of the chamber despite some very vigorous op position. On the whole, the meeting was more harmonious than many expected. A number of ladies came for the purpose of smoothing over the difficulty if it were posßiblQ. They succeeded admira bly, as several of the ladies who are ca pable of stirriDg things up remained as quiet as doves. One little incident occurred which caused quite a little flutter. The presi dent was throwing out chunks of wis dom, when one of the ladies was un dignified enough to say'"Rats." Nond of the women jumped on the chairs and tables, but the expression created a stir, the friends of the president commenting on the matter with considerable sarcasm. The offending member finally apologized for her ungracious behavior and every thing went along swimmingly, but the question is asked, "What has the cham ber of commerce ever done that it should be called upon to ad judicate upon so delicate a mat ter?" It will take the wisdom of half a dozen Solomons to settle the dif ficulty to the satisfaction of one-half of tho members of the ladies' annex. The committee whom the officers of the chamber of commerce will be called upon to receive is constituted as follows : Mesdames Knight, Paige, Cushman Mattern and Lansing. The committee is fairly divided among the disband and anti-disband contingent. The result of the conference will be awaited with breathless snspense by an anxious pub lic. At the close of the meeting the mem bers sang Blessed Be the Tie That Binds. DR. CANTINE'S FAREWELL. The Reception Held Last Evening at His Church. Rev. Dr. and Mrs. Cantine were ten dered a reception last evening by their congregation, at the First M. E. church, on Broadway. The church was artistic ally decorated in honor of the departing pastor. There was a large attendance. Mr. J. J. Gosper acted as chairman, and the following . programme was carried out: Musi o—Choir. Dr. Cantine— Brother (i. Wilev Wells. Our Next Pastor—Brother B. N. Smith. Vocal boIo —Mrs. Brouck. The Thouehtful Pew—Bro. W. H. Thomas. A Ringle (Jingle Speech—Brother m. g. Mc- Koon. The Young Men ol the Church—Brother V. M. Porter. Vocal solo—Mis* Nettie L. Schall'ner. In the Church, Mnn for Ornament, Woman for Wort—Mrs. lilanchard. The address of G. Wiley Wells was very clever, and waß listened to with rapt attention by the large audience. After the Epworth league had made a presentation to Dr. and Mrs. Cantine, Mr. J. J. Gosper, in a very feeling speech, presented Mr. Cantine a purse containing $500, as a souvenir on behalf of the congregation. The reverend gentleman made one of his characteristic speeches. He paid a glowing tribute to tho newspapers of Los Anr/eles, thanking them for their many kindly expressions. Mrs. Cantine also made a few re marks, after which there was general handshaking. The reverend gentleman stated that fie would never forget the good people of the First M. E. church of Los Angeles. A LEADING BUSINESS HOUSE. The Cable Grocery Once More to the Front. One of the leading and reliable busi ness houses in Los Angeles is the Cable (Grocery store at 136 South Spring street, which is conducted by Messrs. 11. P. Anderson and John Chanslor. This house, which has been in business for the past three years, has built up a very large trade, due solely to their selling goods as low as honest business prin ciples will permit. About two months ago they were badly damaged by the lire that occurred in the Solomon block, and were for a while laboring under some difficulties in securing suitable room for their large stock. This, how ever, has now been overcome, and they are now comfortably arranged jn one of the largest, best lighted and ventilated grocery stores in the city. The store has a frontage of 20 feet for the first 65 feet in depth, and then the width branches to 45 feet, and the remaining depth is 60 feet. The Cable Grocery store will continue business on the same principle in the future as in tne past. This has won them an enviable reputa i tion and a large trade. The store has been completely restocked with fancy and staple groceries, and, in fact, they carry everything in the grocery line, and their goods are all of the best quality. Tbey will continue doing a wholesale and retail trade, and the public will find it to their advantage to give this reliable ; house a call. Great Clothing Race! - - We ]fei : ,w teio? Tracks.
