The suggestion that the I'an-Amer-icau exposition at liulTalo has faihd to make an exhibit of South Ameri ca's chief industry revolution is aproRs. There are two or three revolutions on tap in that unhappy country now. A letter from Bass lake, Unrated near North Judson, predicts thit there will be a jjvat tm in that resort when the C , 11. & M. road reaches North Judson. Possibly some of the C , . & M. iiet.ple take a hand in the boom. will George Ketcham's horse, Cresceus, broke the world's record in a trot ting match with The Abbot at Hri'h tou Heach yesterday, making a mile iu 2:0:il and winning the 12,000 purse. The record made was not up to Cre-aeus single track time which was 2.0-1. The Dcrsons who refuse to go - ttttt tm-biucaJ ru.i(ia li not be compelled to go are not doing a creditable thing. They are crip pling the government in its efforts to bring to justice a criminal who has brought disgrace ujon the whole nation. E. P. Thompson, who was convict ed and fined in Cuba yesterday for a fraudlent act while jMistmastcr at Havana, was formerly postmaster at IudianaiHilis. His friends do not be lieve him guilty of dishonesty. Th probabilities are that Mr. Thomo son simply fell in with the genera' ooseness that prevailed among tl officials at Havana. Jt is to letioec that other convictions will speedily follow. A step toward the union of Auier ica and Cuba was taken in Philadcl pnia yesterttay, in tne marriage or Lieutenant Henry Watterson, Jr., of the Jth U. S. infantry, son of Henry Watterson, editor of the Louisville Courier-Journal, and Senorita USanca Casanova whom Lieutenant Walter son met while on duty in Cuba. Senorita Casanova is the daughter of Dr. and Mrs. Juan Casanova, and they have been in Philadelphia for some time. The state board of agriculture will make an effort at the apprac hiug KiitH: lair iu rvvni' iue ik'iuii u.ik- . . . : . i. . i I . . . v. ...... craze. The llgiau hare exhibit is to be attached to the poultry and pet stock show, and seventv-hve premiums are to be awarded. The live classes to be shown include liufus red, imported and domestic, domestic black, Flemish giants and domestic white, and the inducements offered are expected to bring out Belgian hares in sufficient force to show what progress the raij-ing of these auimais has made in Ii.diaua since the craze started. The large amount of corn in the barn that was bur net! near Cainp bellstown the other night suggests the probability that there is much wore old corn in the country thai is generally supoosed. This old corn is being held for the top price and it will not go into market until the price starts downward. Then it will be rushed into market and wiii have an importaut influence in carry ing tne price below the point it would otherwise go. The growing corn crop iil of course be immeuseh sbtsrt oi last year's crop, but it is very doubtful whether the shortage will be such as to keep up the pre ent high price. Senator Fairbanks was the guest of honor at the state G. A. li. re union at Hutchinson, Kansas, yes terday and addressed several thou. and veterans. He said in part: "Our country has grown strong ard great in the arts of peace. Oui material resources bailie competition. Our advantages suggest a futurt which no prophetic vision is pro found enough to measure. Our war with Spain, started in huxuuty's name, ws far reaching in ts con sequences. Njw duties rest uoa us.

" Ex Senator Chandler declares that the Republican party is doomed to destruction unless it ceases to en courage the formation of trusts-biich beinitrue, the o. p. wouid better make its peace with the world a d prejare to meet eternity. Indi anapolis Sentinel. The same issue of the Sentir el that contained the above editorial had a dispatch from Washington giv irrr the result of an investigation trade by an exiert commission con cerning the spread of trusts in Eu rope. The commission's report says that "everywhere in Europe.uotably in Germany and Austria, there is a strong tendency toward - the forma, tion of these combinations. In Ger many and Austria their extent and power probably are as great as in the United States, but the plan of or ganization is materially oillerent. In England within the last three years an active movement has set in to ward the concentration of industry into large single corporations in form similar to those in the United States. The movement iu France is very evident, though the managers of the combinations are not inclined, in view of the severe provisions of the French code, to let their movements aiH'ar in public." Why does the Sentinel not hold the g. o. p. respon sible for the formation and rapid growth of trusts in England, Ger many and France? As that paper has just adopted drastic measures to secure fairness and accuracy in it local lield why does it not adopt th same rule in its editorial depart ment? Successful Meet. Thethird annual sweep stake tour r.nm.xit of the Richmond tMtOOtlUl and Fishing club was a successful one. The attendance yesterday was much larger than on the previous day- "Phil again yesterttay demon ho broke 173 targets out of ISO sho at. Some other good records were also made. The officers of the club are to be congratulated upon th management of the affair, as every thing was done for the comfort not only of the visitors but also for the local meinU rs.

A German custom, which The Kail road Digest thinks might be intro duced witb advantage iu this country is the sale of platform tickets, which admit the bearer to the trains abont tc depart. The idea Is to enable those ac companying friends to assist tbem with their hand baggage to their seats and help with the children when such are present. In most cases the assist ance Is denied, as those not holding tickets are not allowed to pass through the gates, or at least not allowed to en ter the train.

Xrn York's Xew Rare Track. The plan of New York State Senator Timothy D.

The property comprises about 110 acres at a jioint where a new station, to be known as Ixicust. Is to be establish ed, the railroad officials having prom Iscd their aid in the carrying out of tlie scheme. There also will be trolley line conveniences. The land will require no grading, as it now Is level, as Is most of the surrounding country. There Is also pteuty of water easily accessible. It is said thai the actual work of lay ing out and constructing the race track will begin in 30 flays, and plans agreed upon provide for completion by March 1, KK)2. An oval mile and a "shoot" furnishing a straight course of Uve and - fui-l.Mrs will be built. At all points the "sliuot" and (fie uialu truck will be HO feet wide. The grand stand will be BOO feet In length. Whether It will be a wood or steel structure has not been decided A commodious clubhouse will also be erected. The betting ring will lie twice as large as the largest Inclosure for bookmakers and their customers pro vided by any club now racing on Long Island. Articles of incorporation will be filed within a month for the new racing as sociation, which is to be known as the Metropolitan Jockey club.

The "KanKaroo" Start Of the hundreds of thousands of per sons who witness college or other ath letic sports probably not one In a hun dred thousand jtersous knows how the peculiar crouching or "kangaroo" start of the sprinters originated. Eleven years ago every sprinter stood tip to the mark with one arm exteuded At the crack of tlie pistol he brought his arm down hard and leaped for ward. This start was considered the proer tiling.- Now not one sprinter In a score uses this method. Instead they crouch with hands as well as feet uion the ground. This start was discovered by accident in May. 1SJO. by Tommy Lee. at that time one of the crack fpriuters of the New York Athletic club.
