FAVORITE AN EASY WINNER LORD QUEX COMES IN A LENGTH AND A HALF AHEAD. THE CRESENT CITY DERBY Morning Opened Threatening But Hard Work Put Track In Ex cellent Condition. New Orleans, March 15.-Nearly 5,000 people cheered the favorite on to victory in the sixth Crescent City Derby today. The morning threat of rain and a track whose conditions seemed to presage defeat of the Simons colt, cut the attenldance down. i Hard work bettered the conditionI of the track so materially, however, that when the derby opened all of the confidence in Lord Quex was restored and he ruled throughout a strong fa vorite, opening at 3 to 2 and closing at 13 to 10. Kafir, generally regardedl as the principal contender, developed but luke warm support, his price length ening from 2 to 1 to 13 to 5. Merry Maker who was falsely cred ited with an excellent chance in the mud was backed at 10 to 4. Stride Pair, St. Tammany and Prowl, closed at fives and others unnoticedd. Each shared in the applause which greeted the parade to the post. Prowl and Duke of Connaiight were first in motion as the barrier rose and led on suffrance into the back stretch. Winkfield picked the best of going for Lord Quex, and moved up on the outslide as they neared the half mile post and rounding the far turn opened up a gap which the others never clos ed. Vassal Dance, the real contender, despite Otis' inability to do him jus tice, came with a strong rush at the end, but Winkfield shook the favorite up and won out very cleverly by a length anli a half. The Duke of Conaught was injured in right fore leg and it is feared has broken the bone. Race was worth $3, 800 to winner. FIGHTERS WILL STUDY BIDS..

Attempt to Join Delarey Means Re newal of the Fighting. London, March 15.-A telegram dat ed Heilbron, March 11, reports that General De Wet and ex-Presirl.ot Steyn crossed the main railway two nights previously five miles north of Wolvehoek, going west. It is assumed here that this means that General De Wet is trying to join General Delarey. Wolvehoek is 20 miles south of the Vaal river, and a force going westward from that place would go straight to Klerksdorp and General Delarey's country. A march of about 120 miles would bring the force to the scene of General Me thuen's disaster, but before General De Wet can join the victorious com mandos in the western Transvaal he must cross the Vaal river and force another line of blockhouses. A telegram sent from Pretoria, Tuesday, reports that the British col umns are in touch with De Wet and Steyn, and consequently rencwcd fighting may he expected. Quick, reliable shoe repairing.

FREIGHT IS NOW MOVING AND FOR THE PRESENT THE STRIKE IS BROKEN. PEACE MAY NOT BE LASTINC As Many Murmurs of Discontent Are Heard On Account of Presence of Non Union Men. i Boston, March 14.-The labor sit uation in Boston tonight is extremely perplexing. To give weight to the statements of labor men, who speak without authority, saying that har mony is not restored, is to make the outlook far more critical than at any time since the aiied freight transpor tation council began its fight against the R. S. Brine Transportation com pany. On the other hand, Governor Crane and the state board of arbitration believe that the problem is being solved quite rapidly considering the immensity of the strike, and only ask for time and patience form both la boring and business men, to remove all obstacles to the resumption of freight traffic under ordinary condi tions. As a matter of fact the strike was completely broken today although troubles cropped out in many quar ters, some were arranged for without delay, and others dragged along in an uncertain state so that they came in for consideration by various labor bodies tonight. During these meet ings, judging from what was argued by some men, independent strikes of various bodies seem impending but the leaders ýi the strike just ended, are sanguine that they will still hold control of the entire organized labor body and would not again be obliged to order a strike lofthe freight handlers or its more serious accompaniment, a sympathetic strike of affiliated bodies. Tomorrow will show more clearly the conditions in this respect A special side of the strike break ing today presented an army of work ingmen rushing helter-skelter to get to their old positions. There had been more than 20,000 places vacated but fully 10 per cent of the men found their places filled. This was reason for friction all day, affecting only the men themselves, for concerns were too busy raising the embargo on the goods in their keeping to give heed to talk of unfairness. Freight began to move at the docks and freight sheds, from and to wholesale houses and factories and upon the streets and by night great inroads had been made on the four days' accumulation of goods. With the breaking of the strike em ployers of freight handlers, team driv ers. or lumpers, rushed into print with calls for more help. Every concern which heretofore have been bound to unionism seem to have grasped the opportunity to hire men whom they liked. It is on this point of all others, that critical phase of the situation to night hangs. WRECKED STEAMER FOUND. Crew of 20 Supposed to Have Found Watery Graves. Halifax, N. S.
