SENATOR, THE SAILOR.
The 2.27 Trot Won by Marcus Daly's Horse-—Other Notes From 22d day. Notwithstanding the Herai.d is showing great enterprise in its special telephonic reports of the races every day and getting out a fuller account of turf events than ever belote attempted by any evening paper to Montana in its regular edition, there is some chance for inaccuracy in sending such reports through the telephone and yesterday, lor the first time, we im proved that chance much to confusing the statement three-year old trotting race, won in such excellent time by Juanita, the gallant lit tle mare owned by Mr Beckwith, of Evans too, Wyoming. This fine animal was sired by Alierdeen. dam by Pilot Jr. She was foaled in Kentucky and remained there uniil she was a year old when she was shipped to Mr. Beckwith's Oneida farm at Evanston, where she was brok en to harness and trained. Her trainer and driver, Mr. Wyant, was presented by her owner with $500 after the race yesterday, in recognition of the excellent work he got out of Juanita, or Wanita, as the programme spells it. Being raised in Wyoming, her performance of yesterday demonstrated that the colt trot ters of the northwestern territories are tin equals of those reared in either Kentucky or California, and our horsemen hope in time to even surpass those noted sections in breeding. Wyoming and Montana will henceforth be sisters in the rearing of high bred horses. THE 2:27 TROT came off t so late for reporting yesterday evening. It was lor a purse of $1,000, and was contested by the following horses: Kitty Ham, b. m. 6 yrs, by Ham, dam Kitty Lewis, A. C. Bray, Portland, Or. Ollie, b. nr. 6 yrs, by Strathmore, dam Norma, Jr., A. C. Beckwith, Evanston, Wy. Carrie Belle, b. m. 9 yrs, by Com Bel mont, dam Pocahontas, W. H. Raymond, Virginia City, M. T.

The race was the center of universal in terest and betting ran high on it. In the pools Col Bradshaw led as favorite, selling as high as $150 to $25 fur Senator. The tint heat, however, threw first choice to Senator, where it then remained through out Senator took the race in three straight heats, his principal competitor be ing Ollie, who pressed him hard and came in second each time.

Dist Time 2:26^, 2:24}^, 2:25. Mutuals paid $1 10 on first heat, $10.80 on the second and $990 on the third. It is worthy of remark that in no heat did these old trotters equal the time made in the first race by the three-year-old. Juanita. In the first heat the driverof Kitty Ham was thrown from his sulky which ran info a f* ii'*e, and was badly hurt about the knees. The mire broke loose from the sulky and ran around the track, not, however, until she had terrified several of the ether drivers by swinging her sulky uncomforta bly close to them. In the second bent while scoring Carrie Belle's and John F's •sulkies coliidtd and Mr. Raymond, Carrie's owner and diiver, was thrown out hut ne t hurt. The mare lan around the track bu was safely caught and no damage re -suited. Great Race Between Repetta, Nevada Vice Regent and Diavolo. The crowd of yesterday at the races is duplica'ed to-day, only more so. The grand stand eould Dot possibly hold an other individual. The grounds and the pool boxes are overflowing, cue with humanity and the other with sheckl ?s.

Ida Glenn started a big favorite in tbe pools but Roly Holy was the tip a few minutes before the close and she sold well up for the first choice. At the start Roly Boly took the lead and was never headed, Ida Glenn, second aüd Sorrel John, third. Time 1.16}. Mutuals on Roly Boly paid $10.25. NEVADA was an easy winner in the mile and one fonrtb running race, having the lean dar ing the whole distance, and coming in a length ahead of Vice Regent, Diavolo 1 third; Repetta lonith. Time, 2:14}. Mu tuals pain $6 85. Through the influence of Mr. Jeffries, the well known driver and horseman, a special trotting race for a puree of $300 was artaoged to conclude the programme at the track yesterday, which would other wise have been finished before the vast crowds in attendance were ready to leave. This race came off m good season, and was contested by Bishop Hero, Lady Don, Murray, Carrie C. and Dennis Ryan. Hero sold favorite in tbe poolH, and Lady Don second choice, there being a'so many bets on each of the o ber horses. After scoring several times the horses were finally given a start, with I.-ady Don slightly in the lead. To the first quarter the mare increased her lead to a wide stretch of daylight between herselt and Hero. Here the latter broke and galloped quite a disiaace, gaining con siderably and settling down much closei to Lady Don. He finally overhauled her tear the last quarter and headed her down the stretch, but Lady Don made a spurt near the wire and ihe two horses trotted past the judges' stand neck and neck. It was so close that there were claims for each horse and many thought it woald be a dead bett. But the judges gave it 10 Bishop Her», notwithstanding his break and the fact that the mare bad trotted squarely all the way around. In the opinion o: horsemen gathered on the stretch, the heat properly belonged to Lady Don. The result was announced Hero first. Lady Dan fécond, Murray third Time 227}. Mutua's paid $1300. The second heat was taken by Lady Don and the third and fourth by Hero, but the con tests were utterly devoid of interest, so far a* racing wâs concerned. Mutuals paid $8 7D, $6.90 and $5 35 respectively on the las three heats.

Your represen'ative on the Fair grounds is responsible for tbe statement that the day is fine,the track good and the attend ance nearly as large as that of Thursday, the biggest day this week.

The races closed Saturday evening ani »he lateness of the hour prevented a lull account of tbe great tree for all trotting race appearing m the Hzsald that even ing. Another event of the last day left a »chronicled was the three-year-old trot ting race, which came i-ff at noon. Tbe entrance was $50 each, $200 adde l, $300 extra if 2:40 were beaten. Out of fourteen entries there were bnt three starters, nota bly Lady Maxim, b f.. by Maxim, dam Lady Graves by Smuggler—Hugh Kirken dall, of Helena Ilton, b. c., by Tempest, dam Booetta by Com.

The fair just closed is the mo3t success ful exhibition ever condncted at Helena. The city was crowded by a vast number of strangers and the various hotels had more than they conld accomplish in providing accommodations for the influx of visitors. It is estimated that from 5,000 to 8,000 people attended the races from ontside points and that Helena held more of a population last week than ever before in her history. The reason for this was onr exceptional railroad facilities, which brought people in by the hundreds and thousands from other places. The Mon tana Central track to the grounds made it possible for hundreds, who would not have goua otherwise, to attend the fair; audit was mostly on this account that the races were attended by such a crowd each day. No estimate of the average daily a teedetee ha9 ;e b:en made, but it is safe to say it will largely exceed that of any previous yei r. The amount of money in the pools alone shows this For the six days, ending last Saturday night, the pool boxes handled no Jess than $218 543, or an average of about $35,500 per day—a sum not exceeded by the pool sales of any meeting in the Terri tory. Of this $218.543, the Paris mutnals alone held about $95,000. In Batte last week the grand total in the pool boxes was only $198,000. The Helena association has done the biggest week's business ever recorded in the Norihwest and the officers and directors have reason to be proud of the result. live Stock.

It is fitting that the pioneer of low-priced journalism in the West should lead in placing the American newspaper of to-day upon the basis ot the lowest unit of American coinage. Twelve years ago that unit was the nickel in Chicago and throughout the Northwest. The founding of The Daily News at a lower price was regarded by the journalistic profession as inviting certain failure. But they were wrong. To-day there is not a nickel paper in Chicago, and the circulation ot The Daily News averages, as shown by its pub lished sworn statements, 175,000 copies a clay—Irate with a single exception the largest daily circula tion in America, and greater than the circula tions of all other Chicago dailies combined. > The" Daily News has prospered beyond the most sanguine hopes of its founders. For this it has more than once made its grateful acknowledg ments to an appreciative public. It believes, how ever, that the time has now cc.bè when, acting entirely within the limits of a wise commercial progression, it can give its thanks more practical expression. It proposes henceforth to "divide " as to its friends—and to multiply as to its circula tion. To-day it reduces its price to One Cent —; and expects to double its circulation. And anticipating the questionings of the doubtful let it be briefly said that the tiling can be done. The Daily News— all that it has been in the past, as well as all that is rightly expected of it in the future as a leader in progressive Ameri can journalism—can be produced and sold for one cent a day, and this by reason of those com- [ mon principles of trade which make possible lower prices just in proportion as the aggregate volume of sales increases. The Daily News now sells over a million papers a week, as shown by its published sworn statements of circulation, and it can afford to sell at a smaller profit per paper than ! other Chicago dailies, no one of which has as much as one-third the average daily circulation j j K 1 FJLE SMOOTH G.

The large addition toits : present million-a-week circulation, which will surely come with its reduction to one cent a day, ' will fully compensate for the reduced profit at which each paper is sold. All this concerns the reader only as assuring him that The Daily News can reduce its price and at the same time maintain its high character as the foremost newspaper of the Northwest—that a million-a-week circulation makes the otherwise impossible entirely possible. The present is peculiarly the time to inaugu tins popular departure in American jour nalism. The approaching Presidential election widens immeasurably the field and opportunity for The Daily News as an independent, impartial, fearless newspaper—one free from all the entangle ments of mere partisan allegiance. The demand is more and more for a newspaper which shall give all the political news free from partisan color ing, and which shall tell the absolute, unvarnished truth about things, regardless of its effect upon the fortunes of this or that political part}' or candidate, This demand The Daily News aims to meet, and at its reduced price it combines all the elements which should make it literally everybody's paper. North-west, which To the thousands of new readers whose atten tion is now for the first time directed to The Daily News it is proper to say that they will find it complete in all the essentials of the best Ameri can journalism of to-day. Its quality as a netvs paper proper is best indicated in the fact that it is the only low-priced paper in Chicago or the a member of the " Asso ciated Press." The other " Associated Press " papers in Chicago, the Tribune, the Times and Titer-Ocean all cost three cents. The Chicago Daily News prints all the news and sells it for one cent a day. Sold by all news dealers. Mailed, postage paid, at £5.00 per year, or 25c. per month, Address VICTOR F. LAWSON, Publisher, The Daily News, Chicago.
