TIIE CONTEST DECIDED. The Second Race Between the May flower and Galatea Won by the Former. Xi:w Yokk, Sept. 11. Today's race lias decided upon which side of the Atlantic the America cup shall stay for at least an other year. It resulted in a glorious ic tory for the sloop Mayflower. When she finished this evening at Gh lui 40s, the Galatea was nearly -two miles astern. The course was twenty miles to leeward and re turn from Scotland lightship. The race was sailed in a .breeze that blew fresh from the northwest for three hours, then veering two pointsto the west ward. It fell light the last hour of the contest, being little better than a drift, the Mayflower having only 8m 20s to spare when she crossed the finish line, as the time limit of the race was only 7 hours. The Galatea was defeated on every point of sailing by the Mayflower. In the run out to the outer mark with spinnakers fcet, she was beaten 13m. 4os, and in the wind ward work over half an hour. There is great rejoicing among the yachtmen here tonight, while the Bostonians are fairly wild with delight. Off the whistle buoy at 10:15 the Galatea was cast off; her crew soon made sail, while the Mayflower did the same, both setting their club top sails. When the judges boat ran along side the Galatea, Lloyd Phoenix, representing the Xew York Yacht club, told the regatta committee that Lieut. Ilenn was very sick in the cabin and that he wished the course to be made l. miles instead of 20, so as to le sure and finish within a reasonable time, in case it should fall calm. lie wished the Luckenbach to tow the cutter back if the race was not complete.!, .so that he could see a doctor early. Secretary Robinson said he would con sult with General Paine as to the length of the course. That gentleman when seen said he would leave the matter entirely in the hands of the committee. Tlicv decided that the course would be s-e twenty miles, 'and steaming back to the Galeata; that course was given them. Capt. Bradford was sailing the cutter, Beaver Webb looked after the sails, while Mrs. Ilenn peeped out of the companion way with an anxious look in her eyes, for her husband's condition alarmed her. A fleet of steam crafts nearly as large as that of Thursday had assembled near the starting point. Highland Light. The mam moth ilag-bedeckcd steamers Grand Re public and Columbia and the iron steam ers Circus, Copus and Teems, were black with their human freight of yachting en thusiasts. The breeze was freshening every moment and as it was the first time the yachts had come together with half the con test to be sailed to windward, there was considerable discussion as to the probable result. 'The official time of the start was: Mayflower, 11 hours, 24 miuutes, 40 sec onds; Galatea, 11 hour?, 24 minutes, 10 seconds. With a twenty mile run before them there was an excetlant opportunity to test their speed in a steady breeze and with very little sea. For about twenty "minutes the Galatea held her own with the sloop, but after that she was practically out of the race, for the Mayflower was leading her nearly a mile when half the distance to the "outer mark'' was covered. At 11:40 the outer mark hove in sight and in half an hour the fleet of steamers, numbering thirty-one, gathered srouud it to await the coming of the yachts. The wind had fallen light and had cantered a point to the westward. Down came the trio like white winged birds beiore the wind. The Mayflower's ballon jib top ail came in 1:45, 30; four minutes later in came her spinnaker, and at 1:53 she gybed to port and came for the mark, close-hauled on the stnrboad tack lulling grandlv. A few moments later amid a serenade of steam whistles, the prince of Boston under three lower sails and club top sail began her windw ard work with a lead of nearly a mile. The Galatea cylnxi at 1:52,30, hav ing "doused" her spinnaker three minutes before. The time of rounding the outer mark was: Mayflower lh, 55m. 5, Gala tea 2h, 10m, 2s." The Priscilla luffed around the mark only three minutes after the Mayflower. The Galetea made a vcrv pretty picture as she laid down to her scuppers and begnn f her chase to windward after the sloop. Both had all the wind they wantel to cam club top sails. Capt. Stone put the Mayflower about at 11:10 ami moou 10 me iiuruiwjini Beaver Webb was sailing the Galatea: Le refused to tack at 22. Capt. Stone brought j the Boston sloop around again. She was f then over a mile on the cutter s weather beam. 1 Both yachts went about at 4.20, and ' stood to the northward. They were off ! Deal leach at this time, and the wind was J growing lighter every moment. The May- j tlower was'lucky enough to hold a light air j under the land, while the Galatea lay al-j most becalmed for twenty minutes. ! The cutter tacked at 4:35, and made a I hort txwrd m shore, going about again at : -1:45. From here the Sail off the Xew Jer- j sey beach was little letter than a drift. As the Mayflower slowly approached the finish the excitement " became intense among the passengers on board the steam ers. There was no longer anv fear that the Mayflower would be defeated, but the limit of time seven hours had almost ex pired and there was great fear that after being so near the goal the Boston sloop might yet be unable to finish. Just as all hope wan dying out thebreeze freshened and w ith only" 8 " mias., 2 sec onds to spare the Mayflower shot across the finish line close hauled on the port tack, just as the sun went down. The cheering and whistling, and waiving of thousands of handkerchiefs, lasted for fully ten minutes. The Galatea finished 31 minutes, 18 sec onds after the Mayflower. As'she came to anchor the Mayflower's crew gave her three rousing cheers which the Englishman an swered.

Deacon White fails to get to first; Hanlou's fly is taken by Burns and the Dctroits go to the field with one run added to their total. In the fifth inning Kelly sends a vicious grounder past Richardson who lets it go to Gansell; he over-throws and Kelly steals second.

Hanlon makes the play to Besnett; Williamson flies out to Richardson anuBarns' fly is taken in by Hanlon. One run is added for Chicago. Detroit Bennett leads off- with two bases long fly, going into the crowd to the left, and Bildwin strikes out after vainly trying to burst the ball. Rich ardson strikes out in one-two-three order, only three balls being pitched. During this inning a camera fiend takes a picture of the ground and crowd. Brothers hits to center; Bennett comes home and the lat ter takes second. Gansell hits to center but is put out while trying to get second after the ball had been thrown to the home plate to stop Brothers who scored two runs. In the sixth inning Clarksou drives a grounder between Dunlap's legs taking first; Flynn hits a high-fly which Hanlon muffs "abominably, Clarkson going to second on the error, and Ryan goes to bat.

Si-oclalDUpatch ttHhe Dally Eagle. Great Bem, Kas., Sept. 11. The re cent rains have had a cheering effect on the farmers of this county, and the pros pect for a large trade this fall is good. The farmers are all busy with their fall seeding. It is estimated that the acreage for wheat will be larger this year than that of any preceding year by one fourth. The ladies' silver cornet band was out, serenading last night, and our citizens were teea.ed to some very excellent music. The rapid improvement they have made in the last three months is indicative of the proficiency they will ultimately reach. The band is composed of some of the best young ladies of the city. t Mrs. Loop, of Los Angelos, Cal., is vis iting her sister Mrs. E. C. Welles. She will visit Chicago and other points in the east before returning to her home on the Pacific slope. A baseball association has been organized and grounds selected, which will be fenced immediately. The boys claim the Great Bend club to be the best this side of To peka. The building boom still continues. Two hundred feet front in business blocks is on the "boards" for the near future, including a three storj- brick hotel. The growth of Great Bend in the last eight months has simply been phenomenal. Bo Peep Welles is lying seriously ill at her home on the corner of Forest ave. and Williams street. Dr. A. Y. McCormack is confined to his bed with typhoid fever. C, Peilaleptic. Pittsijukg, Sept. 11.

DYNAMITERS NOT ALL DEAD. A Dastardly Attempt to Blow Up a Building' and Wreck a Train. Chicago, Sept. 11. War ngaii)3t the Lake Shore railroad company in the town of Lake has broken out afresh this tim in a new and dangerous manner. The latest and most alarming feature is the use of an explosive and an attempt to destroy tke property of the company which might have involved loss of life. A few moments before 12 o'clock lat night James Calvin, night operator, was sit ting in the signal tower of the Lake Shore company at the intersection of the stock yard tracks. The tower is thirty feet high, and in it is the machinery by which the switches, signals and gates for some dis tance along the road are turned. Calvin was alone in the tower and had noticed nothing unusual, when he was suddenly startled b' seeing a column of smoke arise at one side of the structure. It was light so'that he was aware of the nature of The cloud, and an instant later the little room was instantly filled with blinding smoke that almost suffocated him. lie started to rush down stairs to investi gate the unusual phenomena. As he reached the landing below a deafening ex plosion took place and at that moment Cal vin saw the figure of a tall slender ' man dart away from the building. The man ran west toward the stock yards and w;is lost in the labyrinth of cars which cover the tracks. At the instant the explosion occurred Calvin was thrown to the ground with ex treme force. Such was the force of the ex plosion that a number of tools were lifted ironi tiie iioor and crashed through win dows. Calvin did not loe consciousness, and after pulling himself together rushed out on the track. Officers O'Douncl and Con stello were on guard at the time at the Root street crossing. Search of the tower was made: a 20-inch piece of shattered gas pipe and a package ef something which looked like cotton soaked in some kind of dark liquid was found, smoke corning from it and bright sparks being thrown off A bottle containing what is supposed to be acid was picked up near by the door of the signal tower. A jar of dangerous c'p! . sive had been thrown on the floor. The explosion shattered all the glass in the front of the house. In the cellar are the batteries used for electric signals, there were 100 battery cells in the room, and of these thirty-four were broken. Not only this, but the pneumatic lubes w'so used in signalling, were twisted and the whole sys tem utterly ruined. It will take a thimv and dollars to repair the damage When daylight came another search was made for more explosives. In a little shed at the rear of the tower a bundle supposed to contain another explosive was picked up. it was wrapped in paper tied with a black cord. The police were afraid to open it and it was removed to the town hall. What makes the attempt more dastardly U the fact that the outbound passenger train was due at the town a few minutes after the ex plosion occurred. The theory of the police is that the wreckers hoped to blow up the tower, and when the passenger train came along to throw the switch. Thus the train would be plunged into the mas of freight ear that line the side of the track. There were also other attempts at de stroying property on the Lake Shore last night. About 8 the Lake Shore road re ceived from the Illinois Central a train of twenty-eight cara. While these were 1m? ing taken over thcltoot street crossing the switch was thrown after about lml f the cars had passed, cauing a general wreck. About midnight John Fagiu, ex-switch man of the Lake Shore road, was arrested at Ford street just as he was about to throw a witch for the purpose of derailing a train. CIVIL SERVICE BUGABOO.

The practice had been to awign tbCM: 1 office examiners to the field after adequate experience, showing practical capacity. Contrary to all precedent, and to law as to the other class of examiners, these new ex- j aminers were by express terms of the new law, to hold office for only one year: and -v.ct Ul vil s ralcs iircd a pnU- i tion of six months, even before complete nnr)0intmcnt. and the civil service law if 1 .1 . .,.. v... is.n held to cover me new places, rigidly re IiUlUl) quired the appointments to them to be ( apportioned among the states and territories in ratio ot population. The purpose of congress was to have a great :unount of work done within the year before its next session. There was ground for great solicitude lest it might be held by the attorney gen eral that no examination was required for these. The first duty was at all haxanllo prevent spoilsmen from capturing places. It was next essential to fill them with the utinot promptness. It would be disas trous to occupy several montlis in operat ing the technical machinery of the com mission for that purpose It was midsum mer vacation time and the commlssiou had not a single person examined, or even an applicant for filling any One of them. To meet the stern conditions of apportionment examination after due notice given, must be in such numerous and remote places as to accommodate the country from the lakes to the gulf and from ocean to ocean. It was plainly impossible to complete these examinations, then go through the slow process of certifying by fours for all vacancies, while keeping up the appoint ment in less than two months at most. It was plainly unjust to set off a place of one year to one state against appointments to other states for an indefinite time. Though a crisis was caused by congress it was certain that all politicians of both par ties would change it again as being a '"farce of civil service reform," for which Com missioner Olrly and tens of thousjuids of Democrats iu Indiana and elsewhere, who are now much wiser, then felt no more re pect than was felt for it by his friends-, Senator Voorhes and Mr. Hendricks. There were anxious discussions of the jH?rplcxuig situation. President Arthur was consulted: he was always linn and faithful for the reform policy. On the 28th of July the commission ad vised the adoption of the special rule al ready referred to, which Commissioner Oberly holds up to public censure on parti san grounds in his letter to the 'limes. This policy resulted in relieving the criw and in seasonably filling the places with competent examiners. The enemies of re form defeated of their spoils and in their hopes of discrediting the commission A Compromise Effected. Chicago, Sept. 11. After a session of the western railroad general manager, histing until late this evening, the informal compromise of yesterday reviving the west ern freight association, was made binding. The principal obstacle today was a rcfiisal bv the Wabash to ixol iU Sl. Louis busi ness at Chicago rates. This was finally re moved by adoption of a provNo that al! similar business of other roads should Ik pooled on the same basis. The agreement was then voted upon, .section jby section, and each section was adopted separately When the agreement as a whole was put to a vote there was a slight hitch, the repre sentatives of two roadi being without au thority to act. They finally gavo their as sent, subject to the approval of their direct ors.
