Today's attoedance at the fair was
muceh greater than yesterday's and a
.goodly printiing of strangers was
notieable. TI.e exhibits hove all been
pladed and tde xpoiltion may now
be said' tohe rilly open,, tl ough
some details. were, not yet comnpjeted 1
this" morninf:g. But ,this was not sur
prising, as no fair is eve really open
ed and complete rintil a'ter the first
day or two. succeeding the
formal opening. The races yesterday
piroed 'interesting and aeforded some
very. gooQ4spOlfC'.
Walter Story, and A. C. Logan are
again in the judge~' stand and have
Willias' lea to assist them. Jack
McCone acted as starter in yester
day's events and Charles Ovren held
the wttch, while ,D. H. Moss did the
clerical part of the iwork.
The visitors .o' the -air sex. And
.Floral hall ·articularly- attractive be
*eause of the large display /of :fancy
work made there. The exhibit 'in
this department this year is exception
ally meritorious.
It is said by those in' charge that
the amount of work exhibited in this
department this year is four times
greater than was ever shown in any
-:previous year. It -must be that the
Jadies are public spirited, for the
amount of money offered by the asso
ciation in prizes for fancy work would
not repay them for the time and trou
.Can drawn work. In one point the
ladies excel the Mexicans them
.selves." This. is that the material' of
whici their best- work is'done is of
the finest linen. In' this department
are exhibited table -clothes, center
pieces, handkerchiefs, pillow cases,
sheets and dollies.
There- are some ,exquisite linen
embroideries. INothing could be more
charming than the beautiful blending
of the dainty coldors i. this work.
The display of knitting, crochet and
tatting is very fine. Shawls, * skirts,
Jackets and stockings are.among the
articles"shown here.
A number of very elaborate silk
patchwork quilts are hung nh the
walls as well as quilts made of less ex
pensive materials.
One branch of the fancy work de
partment which is attracting a great
ideal of well merited 'attention is the
,department for girls under 15 years.
On the entry tags attached to some of
the articles are names of children
who have entered some' of their: work
in the contest,.who were as -young as
six years of age. 'Some, very' good
work is exhibited by the girls, and
some of it is fine endugh to rival in
excellence that which - is shown in
the ladieb' giepartment.
Yesterday's Races. '
There were a number of.good races
yesterday, the most exciting pr6b
a.bly, )being the last one on the card,
the quarter dash. This was .on ac
count of the fact that; Queen .T., said
to be the world-beater for that, dis

lThe Indfi rageps were, as usuti,
intensely 'interesting and there was
no monkey business with the red
skins. They rode up to. the wire
sanq breedhes or caps, clad only in
a flowing shirt and breech clouts, and
were off in a second. If all the races
were started as easily as the Indians
are gotten off the programme would
soon be gotten through with. A sum
mary of the afternoon's races follows:
First race, special trot or pace, best I
two in three. Entries, Merrill, by
McCauley; Iare, by A. L. Love; Jus
tina, by U. H. iBarthuff,, and Billings,
by W. B., George. After tedioud scor
ing the .horses were gotten off. lago
set the pace from the first turn and
won with .ease, with Justina second
and Billings third. Billings was -a
good second until thee home stretch
was reached when he broke badly and'i
lost ground. The second Meat was
a repetition of the first and was tak
en by Iago. Billings' kept -his feet
nobly and was a good second. Second
money went to Justina and Billings.
Time of heats, 2:33 1-5, 2:36.
Second race, half-mile dash. En
tries, March, by Brownlee; Limb of
the Law, by O'Neal; Charles Lamar,
by S. Polk, and Windy Jim by Bal
.langes. Lamar was 'the prime f'Avotite
in the pools, and sold at even money
against the field .but there was a -sur
prise in store. for the talent. M', ancho
came in a goodi topr it hs J6
*ance, Lamt second, Limb 'o 'the
taw, third. Time, .50 flat..
Third race ~pcialed six furlongs dash.
Entries; July (itp, 'by P. Humphrey;
Wachusett, by N. M. Rath; J. P. S.,
by McMurrasy; Nanon by S. Polk. The
wise ones evened up their former
losses on this race. Nanon ', sold
favprit against the field and the tal
ent put their money on her. She did
not"disappoint them but ion easily
i 1;16. 1-6, with July Gip second ani
Wluidtzuiett' third.
Fourth race, one-fourth mile dash.
Entries; Queen T., by A. W. Coffey;
Populist, by John Vincent; SleepY,
by E. J. Patch, and Little Tom by
McPherson. On account of her great
record Queen T. was easily the favor
ite, but she failed to make good. Pop
ulist came in a half 'length, ahead
with Queen T. second and Little Tom
third. Sleepy got a very badstart on
account of lihr rider hanging back of
the bunch. Time, 23 1-5.
There were four specials, three of
them being Indian races. A mile and
a half dash brought out 'six entries
and was won by Frank Hawk ridden
by Alfonse Child-in-the-Mouth. Strong
Enemy, Gaston ,Fewplothes rider, was
a" close second, and Curly Long Bear
third, Time, 2:59.
A quarter dash by white boys was
won by Trix, owned by Lila Camp.
A half mile dash by Indians was
won by Blackhawk. Black Horse sec
ond and Plentycoose third. Time, .54.
A quarter mile dash by Indians was
taken by Flathead in .25 2-5, with
Crane second and Two Legging third.
On account of the strong wind that
prevailed the entire afternoon it was
impossible to have the balloon ascen
sion, although Aeronaut• Lon Odell
had }everything in readiness to make
the ascent.

Every Article of Platt Amendment

/ Waslhington, Sept. 9.-Secretary
Hay, upoh his return to.Washington
will. n negotiations for a treat
of amity and commerce between Cu·;
and the United States. It will in-,
elude a provision for the extralitioz'
of. persons breaking the laws of the
two countries who may flee from jus.
tice, and other subjects generally dealt
with in a treaty of this character.
There are at present no treaties ex

violation, of the provisiOns of the
Platt. amendment.cdeflning the future
relations between 'the two nations,
this governnsent wa not in a position
to do a. aything to prevent the bond
sale, owing to the, fact that the pro'
visions -of' the Pldtt amenidment 'hilt
tiot been inbebrporated in a tr~esty.
This amendment itself provides that
by way of further assurance the gov
ernment of Cuba will embody its psfb
visions in a perm nept treaty with th:
United tga es.,
It is highly ihnportant that a treaty,
be negotiated at once and when this
is done every article of the Platt
amendment will be' embodied in the
One of the most far-reaching provi
sions of this amendment safeguards
the independence of Cuba. It de
clares that "the government of Cu
ba shall never enter into any treaty
or compact with any foreign power
or powers which will impair or tend
to impair the Independence of ,Cuba,
nor in any manner authorize or per
mit any foreign 'power or powers to
obtain by colonization of, for military
or naval purposes or otherwise, lodg
ment in, or control ,over an portion
of .said is.and."
This .provision.has been greatly mis
understood, assertions being niade
that it prevents Cuba entering into
cqmmercial treaties with ny -power
other thee the United States, This is
not correct, as no restrictio.s of this
character are placed upon Cuba. The
eiffet is to guard, the independence
of Cuba and to prevent any foreign
nation gaining a foothold in the is
land, which would be a violation of
the Mcnroe doctrine.
The second article of, the Platt
amendment limits Cuba's debt-con
tracting power. It provides that
"Said government shall not assume
or contract any public debt, to pay the
interest on which and to.malke reason
able sinking fund provision. for the
ultimate discharge of which the ordi
nary revenues of the island, after de
fraying the current extienses of gov
ernmnent, shall be inadequate."
Intervention by the United States,
in the event of the failure of Cuba
to protect life,! liberty and property
and for the preservation of. its inde
pendence is provided for in the 4ext
clause. It is as follows:
"The government of Cuba consents
that the United States may exercise
the right to intervene for the preser
vation of, Cuban indep~endence, the
maintenance cf government .adequate
for the protection of life, property and
individual liberty and for discharg
ing` the obligations. with respect t~
Cuba imposed by -the treaty of Paris
oh the United States, now to be as
sumed ani undertaken by.-the govern
;ment of .Cuba.'
Section four provides iforh~be rati
fication of all acts of thy United
",States during tha n-ilita-y occupa
tton. of the;:island. Its language is as
follows: "'that all act : qf.,ithe ; nit

Springer, of the National Live Stock
association; has arriied at the con

"The beef trust," said Mr. Springer,
"has gone where the woodbine twin
eth. We sent letters to the packers
which stated in plain terms what they
could expect if they went into com
bine to control the price of beef.
"Coming from an organization of
men who have paid their debts and
are in a financial condition to put up

the packers to reach the conclusion
that it would be the part of wisdom to
go very slow. They quit talking
about organizing a trust, and this is
probably the end of it."
