A horse hecame frightened at a pass ing train last Sunday, on the corner of Aliso and and Alameda streets, over turning the buggy and throwing tbe occupants —a gentleman and lady— out upon the ground.

Ait«l>lci»u« Opr-nlng •fttie t'ourlli An nual I'nlr el the Nontlicru IM*trict Agricultural Soeicty. Yesterday the Fourth Annual Expo sition ol the Southern District Agricul tural Society was most, favorably op ened at the racing grounds of the as sociation neur Los Angeles. At night Interesting ceremonies were promised at the rink but the rain prevented. To-night the "rink" will be thronged with residents and strangers and the Usual annual address will be delivered by ex-Gov. Downey,the chief executive of the association, With the fine dis play oi* ladies' handiwork, art produc tions, etc., the hall already presents a most attractive appearance aud still more entries will be made to-day, thus heightening the agreeable eflect. A very creditable representation of the unequalled fruits of our semi-trop ical climate is also promised. AT THK RACK lItACK a goodly crowd wits assembled yes terday—a larger attendance than is usual for the first day of these yearly COmmUttions of lovers of last horses. The grand stand was thronged, very many fair ladies being in the crowd, and scores of line equipages, precious ly freighted, Were collected within the race enclosure. The day was fair, the track in good condition and the races excellent from lirst to hist. Even I hose who lost coin on their favorites —and their name is legion—admitted that the "sport" was unusually ex clting. Gen. H. B. Davidson, D. Campbell and,M. S. Patrick, salected as judges, occupied the centre stand, and Messrs. T. T. Saxby, J. W. Welch and Thos. Gates olficiated as time keepers. I HE TEOTTINCi HACK. The first speed contest was a trot ting race, best three in live, t.o har> ness—free to all horses that had never beaten 2:so—for a purse of $300; $180 to first, $80 to second and $40 to third. Five entries had been made, but only three showed up at the score, and one of these was lost in the first heat, re ducing the contestants to two. For tunately these two contestants were good ones and the. race was an inter esting one. The entries were as fol lows: Henry Hazard enters b. g. Pilot Chief, six years old, by (May Pilot, dam Kitty Whitehall. L. J. Rose enters bl. s. The Moor, for merly Beau Clay, by Clay I'ilot, dam Belle of Wabash, by Bassinger. L. H. Titus enters b. s. Echo, by Rys dick's Hambletonian, dam by Magno lia, he hy American Star. Prior to the call, pool selling was quite lively, Echo being the general favorite and the Moor having many enthusiastic backers. The odds given were $30 to $20 on Echo, while the "field" had no backers. FIRST HEAT. After much vexatious scoring the horses got a fair start, Echo at the pole, I'ilot Chief second and the Moor on the outside and slightly in the lead. Echo made a bad break at the turn, but was promptly brought back to bis work and held the lead at the quarter pole, the Moor at his heels, and i'ilot Chief close behind. At the half mile Echo made another "buck," but promptly recovered. At the third quarter the Moor made a bobble but quickly came to time and tried to shorten tho gap still maintained by Echo. These two horses had a spirited race on the home stretch, but Echo held his own and came in about eight lengths ahead. Pilot Chief was dis tanced—his owner seekingcotisolation in the fact that he injured himself in scoring. Time, 2:381. SECOND HEAT, Pool-selling was again resumed, Echo still being the favorite over the Moor at $50 to $20. A capital send-off was had, Echo on the outside. The Moor left his feet on the first turn and Echo had the lead to the first quarter. There Echo broke badly and was with difficulty brought back to work. At tho half-mile pole Echo was still in the lead. Here the Moor did some splendid trotting, but failed in his at tempt to secure tne lead. On towards the goal both horses trotted in mag nificent style but Echo crossed the score several lengths in advance, mak ing the second mile in 2:35}. The judges, however, after consul tation refused the heat to Echo, award ing the heat to the horse in the rear and fixing the time at 2:37, and this on the ground that Echo at the quar ter pole had gained considerable dis tance by a bad break, his driv er not manifesting the required promptness in bringing the an imal back to a trot. As this decis ion eventually gave the race to the black horse, Echo's many backers were very wrathy and more than one round oath was hurled at the judges. The judges say that they saw the break clearly with their glasses and satisfied themselves that Echo's driver, Mr. Newton, was not sufficient ly prompt in bringing tho stallion back to work. Those who lost on Echo aver that the Moor, just about as freely as Echo, indulged in breaks and bobbles, anil that it was just a stand-off between the two. This is simply a question of fact and the judges the proper ones to decide the same. The rules of the turf are clearly set down that when a horse in trotting breaks from his gait and the driver does not at once pull him back to the required gait, though he comes out ahead, he shall lose tho heat and the second best horse be awarded the same. The judges have authority to take from the horse at the come out twice the distance gained by the break, and even to distance him if they see lit. One rule that "repeated breaks in a trotting race warrant that a horse be distanced" would have played havoc with both contestants, had it been enforced. THIRD HEAT. black horse stock now took an ad vance and at the pools the Moor sold for $20 to $15 on Echo. The two horsos started off without trouble, the Moor on tho inside, and leading by a length to the half pole. Here Echo made his legs fly and nearly closed up the gap. When near the outcome the black made an unfortunate break and there Echo passed him and won the heat by a length. Time 2:37}. FOCHTII HEAT. Echo again went to the front iv public confidence and large sums were wagered on tho plucky stallion at rates of $10 on Echo to $3, $4 and $5 on the Moor. Echo had the pole and took the lead from the first, both horses trotting in fino style. From the lirst to the third quarter they flew along as if In a double team. Again Echo broke and the black shot ahead and passed under tho rope about two lengths ahead. Time, 2:30}. [.AST HEAT. At even heats the opposing horse* now stood and the excitement became intense. A boat 18,000 had been de posited with Noyes & Durfee on the result and many outside bets were awaiting the flnal trial. Pools were again sold, at SO ) on the Moor to $25 on EohO. The animals were sent off In fair shape, the Moor at the pole. Echo shot ahead, but the black horse soon collared him and passed the quarter pole over a length in advance. The Moor slowly but steadily widened the gap and despite a barf break In the thlra quarter came to the scratch at least three lengths in advance. Time, 2:43.1, and then the heat and the race were given to the Moor. SUMMARY. sot'THKits District AGRICULTU RAL SOCIETY, Los Angeles, October 20th. —Trotting; free for all horses that have never beaten 2:50 ; mile heats, best three in live, to harness.

Time, 2:88$; 2:37; 2:37£; 2:30.}; 2:43}. THE RCXNINO HACK. Next came a running race that promised general excitement and did not deceive the expectations of the public. A live mile dash, free for all, catch weights, lor a purse of $300 —$180 to first, $80 to second and $40 to third. Some five or six entries were expected, yet but throe como to time and the race was really between two crack runners—Bandera and Pele. The en tries were as follows: Geo. A. Johnston enters br. m. Pele, by Belmont, dam Liz Givons. Francisco Machado enters b. h. Ban dera, no pedigree. Manuel Cariega enters r. h. Moun taineer, no pedigree. Irene Harding, a noted mare, being encientc, was not in good condition for a five mile run. and consequently was withdrawn from the race. Moun taineer, although not of the same sex, was in v worse condition before he had run three miles. Pele, a beautiful mare with good blood peeping out of her skin, had orange colors; Bandera, a great favorite with the Spaniards and trim and nromising in his ap pearance, red colors; and Mountaineer, whose"come-otit" is yet to come,white colors. A good start was secured, Pele on the inside, Bandera next and Moun taineer on the outside. Mountaineer shot ahead, but his wind failed him and the white colors soon dropped be hind—from a run he came down to a lope, then to a fox trot, then to a walk and then, at the third mile, he vanquished from sight. Bandera and Pele had it neck and neck for a while when the "orange" went to the front and held that position when the race was won. But the contest was red hot and several times the "Mexi can colors "were in the van. Ban dera made desperate efforts on the fifth mile, but Pele came In about one hundred yards ahead, making the five miles in 10:16*. The time by miles was as follows, viz: 1:57; 1:58; 2:02; 8:11$; 2:08. About $5,000 in pools were sold on this race, Pele being the favorite by odds of $25 to S2O. THK PACTNCJ KACE. The last race for the day was a pac ing match free for all horses, mile heats, best two in three, purse $150 — 5100 to first and $50 to second. The entries were as follows: T. Beecraft enters bl, g. Emperor, no pedigree. Johnny Donahoe enters s. in. Daisy Dean, four years old, no pedigree. E. B. Giffbrd enters b. m. Minnie, five years old, by Mormon Chief, dam unknown. Betting was quite freely indulged in at rates of $30 on Emperor to $17 for the field. Daisy Dean won the pole, Minnie next and the Emperor on the outside. With a good start for all, Daisy Dean took the lead, but at the half-mile pole all were in a bunch again; then the Emperor went to the front, Minnie at his* heels and Daisy Dean far in the rear. Minnie aud the Kmperor had it nip and tuck to third quarter, when the Maid slipped ahead and won the heat by several lengths, the " Daisy " being distanced. Time, 3:00. Iv tho second heat Minnie was placed next to the pole. The Emperor lead to the quarter pole and then there was some fine pacing for half a mile, Minnie 'steadily crawling up to her sovereign. 'Die black maintained his advantage until the score was reached, coining iv about two lengths ahead. Time 2:50. Prior to the second heat, the Maid's success had increased her popularity and the pools were sold in her favor at 20 to 10, and despite her misfortune in the second heat she remained the fa vorite at the same odds. Again the horses were called to tho scratch for the third and final heat. The black had tho pole, but Minnie was ahead nearly a length when the word "go" was sounded. When she captured the pole, she spurted ahead with commendable zeal but the Em peror filled up the gap and passed the female near the lirst quarter. At the half-mile he was several lengths ahead, when the mare evinced a determina tion to close up and pass him. There was a fine dash up the home stretch and Minnie passed under the wire less than a neck ahead, winning both heat and race. Time 3:u7J. As the mare broke badly on the last quarter, con siderable protest was made to the judges but they decided that Minnie had fail ly won the race. SUMMARY. Southern District Auricultur ai.

The plays on the boards were "Dora" and "Bough Diamond," In which Miss Florence Kent, Miss Kittie Jordan, Mr. George Bird, Mr. L. F. Howard and Mr. Louis Belmour took the leading parts. Miss Lulu Wilson filled the interlude be tween the plays with some very tak ing songs and" dances. The play for to-night will bo*' Uncle Tom's Cabin." Tt is to be hoped that the weather will be more propitious and a large audi ence will doubtless be present. The Board of Supervisors will meet to-morrow to receive petitions for the construction of the following bridges: For tho building of a bridge over the old San Gabriel river, in the Wil mington Boad District, on the lino of the Wilmington road. Also, for build ing a bridge over New Biver, on the Wilmington and Anaheim road,and a bridge over Alamitas slough, on the same road; both last mentioned bridges |located in the Anaheim Boad District. Also, for a bridge on the San Jose creek, on the Anaheim and Spadra road, in the San Jose Boad District. Also, for a bridge over New Biver at Sanford's crossing, In Los Nietos Boad District. It was amusing to see the crowd of sports gathered under an awning in front of a Main street saloon last night imploring every passing hackman to take them in out of the wet. Jehu, under press of a previous engagement, invariably drove by, with a gruff" " damyerdrown," and the sports were still left in their misery. How long they remained in their comic quandary wo know not, as we left them still beseeching, still implor ing. Last night's rain worked some in jury to the race-track, though it does not necessarily preclude the races to day. If it should continue with the steady fall, however, at which it set in, it will make the track so heavy that a postponement of the races will be necessary. Pool-selling for to-day's races was commenced at the Fashion saloon last night. In the running race for three year-olds, the bidding was spirited and stood: Betrent, 80; Careless, $40; Nel lie Gray, $15; field, $20. In the trot ting race for three-yciir-okts, no sales were made. The seven criminals indicted by the Grand Jury and now under arrest were arraigned in the County Court yesterday, and Thursday of next week was set for pleading.
