repeatedly called for. had the distinction
of bflng the only Bold standard man to
nddresa the convention except Chairman

farewell address. Col. Breckenrldge was
given close attention, although he told
the convention the recent sliver victory
was du?* to distress and discontent und
Its results would be temporary.
The committee on credentials reported
for nn equal division of the vote between
the contestants in Kenton county,
the home of Carlisle, and for seating the
silver delegates In place ??f the Music
Hnll or Haldeman delegation from Louisville.
The report gave the silver men
forty votes more than they cast yester?inv

Long discussion ensued on the part of
th<' majority report unseating the "gold
delegates" from Louisville. Col. H. M.
Stone lending for gold and G. T. Finn
for silver. Interruptions and disorder
protracted the consideration of the report.

to win the Brooklyn handicap, and at

he was third, beaten out by a fraction
at the end, by to-day Taral was on
his back, and his skill, combined with a
lack of Judgment on the pprt of Clayton,
who rode the favorite, helped to
give the victory to the son of Midlothian
and La Scala amid a roar of applause
rarely heard nuw-a-daya upon a race
track. That It was a popular victory
could not In- doubted, for from the time
he poked his nos?* Into t!i?* lead to the
last fraction of a second of the race there
was one wild yell for Sir Walter.
The finishes In the first, st-cond and
third races wer- close enough to whet
the appetiti'H of the spectators but they
did not care very much for the minor
contests, even though there was a stirring
contest for the rich Expectation

Sir Walter, with Taral up, went past

track which marked the starting post.
After the hors-s got to the post there
was a long delay for Counter Tenor was

after they went to the post. Flynn
caught them In a good line and the red
Hag ^wished in the air, the immense
crowd rose to its feet with th** cry,
"they're off!" and the eight highly bred
animals began the Journey of a mile
and a quarter, at the end of which was a
purse ?if $8,000 for the winner.
The crowd at the starting post obscured
the vision for an instant and
then they swept around the turn into the
stretch, with Sir Walter showing'the

The pace was slow there for each one of

faster, ljike Shore was the first to feel
the effect of the surging, and Sir Walter's
nose began t<? forge in front. Inch

show ahead, and the first four were
running so close together that a blanket
would have covered them, for St. Maxim
had cut the lend over him down to

little urging Sir Walter shot away from
the others to {rot a good position to

had oome up a little. The time to

they rushed around the long upper turn
the pace quickened and Sir Walter took
a still larger load from St. Maxim, while I

at the line showing of Sir Walter.
There was much disappointment over
