easily. In the last beat she waa pulletl
upinaide of the distano stand, but nev
ertheleas lowered her record. Time
2:l»i, '2:194. 8ll«.
The event of the day was the aucceas
ful attempt of Comniodor.i Kittson's
pacer, Johnaton, to lower his record of
2:10. Conditiona were most favorable
lor speed and Johnston promises to
sjtaud al the head of the list for a long
time. He waa brought t.nt and given
a warming-up heat in Stlflf. Then he
and Richball were brought out and
tbe judges announced that they would
be started about four leugtba apart, not
to pace against ouch other, hut each iv
an attempt to beat hia own record,
Ricbball'a being 2:12 J. They were given
tha word, both going fast and level.
Johnaton reached the lirat quarter in 32
aeconde, a '2:08 gait. Soon si let passing
tbe quarter post Richball made a very
bad break and was jogged the tost of
the way without au attempt lo make
time. Johnaton increased his speed
elik-blly, reaching the half poat at o rule
of 2:07 for mile record, the quarter be
ing covered in 111 J seconds. Along th.
third quarter the aame tertiHio flight
was kept up and the ■peeU**™ began
crying, "He will beat v." . fttjl*M*

theory was, "See him go; he will beat
209 " Down the home stretch ho came
even faster, hut without a falter anil
steady as clockwork. Those holding
watches couUl scarcely credit the lag
aiinu seconds. At the distance stiiuil
there waa a cry: "He will heat 2:0!)."
There was no alackening of apoetl to
the wire, and the mile was completed in
the unprecedented t.me of 2:001, the
lest quarter being paced in .'lll seconds,
or at Ihe rate of 1:05. The Uorse and
Ins driver, John Uplan, were loudly
cheered, as was Woodniausee, the man
ner for Commodore Kittaon. Richball
then attempted to lower his record, but
only succeeded, in making 2:14.
The closing event of the day was the
attempt of the pacing mare Minnie R.,
bitched to a wagon with a running mate,
to heat her own recortl of 2:0.1. In this
she waa ancceaaful. Tho lirst quarter
was paced in 31J seconds-, hslf in L0l$;

afoot, through the principal etreela.
Nearly every house was decorated. Tbe
people in the stroets numbered at leaat
aa many aa the entire population of the
oily, there being a very large attendance
from the adjaoent country. Whin the
proceesion reached the aland Blame waa
received with loud cheering. He waa
presented to Ihe people by Be*. Dr.
Canon, a prominent Presbyterian clergy
man of Xeuia. Blaiue said i
"By a coincidence which is interesting
to aaa I waa here eight yeara ago th a
day te address a Republican meeting iv
tbe intrust of the election of un Ohio
•talesman to the Presidency The man
then elected President gave way after
an excellent administration of four years
to another Ohio statesman, who, after
an agouy that touched the sensibilities
oi the whole world, sleeps in au hon
ored grave, but with theso changes some
things have remained permanent, and
among these are the foundation princi
ples of the Bepublican party. They re
main, and tho contest for their mainte
nance recurs again after four years and
alter eight years, and the appeal is again
made to the people of Ohio, who hold
to-day aa they held then, the post of re
sponsibility and the post of honor. (Ap-
Slanse.) It la for the Republicans of
bio to say whether the principles on
which they eleoted Hayes and ou which
tbey elected (isrtield ore still vital and
•till reprraent their convictions."
At Sooth Charleston lilaino left tbe
train and was driven a short diatancc
to where a large meeting was in pro
greaa, Governor Long, of Massa
chusetts, being one of tho speakers. Tbe
regular proceediugs were suspended in
aider thai Blame might hs presented to
(be people. He waa very warmly re
ceived, and be spoke a few words in
acknowledgment of the compliment, but
declined io further interrupt the meet
ing. Iv thia an in ull other gatherings
lo ihiy, there were many ladies. Tho
demonstration at London waa tine of the
moat enthusiastic and beautiful on the
whole route. Front the station Maine's
carriage waa escorted hy mouuted
knights, latliea and gentlemen, in equal
ntiuibeia. while the pruceaaion moved
along between two linea of uoifonned
men, members of local Republican clubs.
Across the streets at abort iutervals flaga

girla ropreaeutiiig Maine and Ohio stood
together by the chair that had been
provided for the distinguished guest.
When he waa introduced by tho Hon.

cheered, lie mounted a chair ao that
all the people could ace him,
anil when the cheering had eeaaed aaid:
"It haa been tbe singular good fortune
of Ohio on aeveral great occasion, to lead
tho people of Ihe Uuited Statea to im
portant decisions, and the responsibility
rests th : s year on Ohio, perhaps more
emphatically and more aigniticautly than
evor before. I waa induced by pressing

Columbus, 0., Oct. 3.—Nothing in

and there haa been only two or
three larger. The crowds io

tainly greater thau had greeted htm at
any other point reached in tbe day time
except the one at Kocheater. The State
Cominiltee had engaged a room at the
Neil Houae, from which Blame could re
view tbe proceaaion in the evening, but
instead of atoppiug at the hotel, Blame
went from the depot to tbe house of his
kinsman, Mi. Henry Miller. Ho had a
formal escort compoaed of uniformed Re
publican clnha, but tbe Mart of people
who marched along on each side uf hia
carriago and behind it was very much
larger. Opposite tbe Neil House, on
the edge of Mate House square, a Urge
■ land had been erected, and in front of
tho hotel, facing tho aquare, a amall
temporary balcony hail been construct
ed. The people wore so densely packed
in tbe street be-low that it seemed im
possible lo clear a way for the proces
sion. They kept their eye. fixed on the
little balcoiiy ami kept up audi a storm
of cheer., yelta and calla for "Blame,"
"Blame,' that tbe gentlemen in charge
of the procession insisted upon Blaiue
allowing himaelf and makiog a
little speech 80 aa to satisfy
the people and induce them to
make way. Accordingly, when the
profession was ready to move he ap
peared on the balcony. fix-Govern*.r

ceived in a manner that bahiea descrip

tail: '".leu of Ohio: I can any with

ago, before tbe great majority of you
were born, and 1 have viaited your beau
tiful city at abort mtervala cv r aioce
and have kept in my own mind and in
my own sight the record of its splendid
growth and advauecmeot. I have never
visited it under more pleasant circum
atances than thia evening, and I thank
you with a aenae of profound gratitude
lor this magnificent, overpowering wel
come. I know very well that you would
.luem it great vanity in me to attribute
this reception to myself, (It'a all for you:
1 tell you it's for you: it'a for Blame).
No, it ia becauae fur a time I represent in
the great national conteat ibe priuciplea
wbioh you uphold, and 1 beg to call
yonr attention lo Ihe fact tbat whareaa
there may lie many questions of greater
or less magnitude involved in the na
tional i b ction, there ia always one
great controlling issue that entera into
the popular mind, and that iesue this
year palpably and distinctly marked is
protection to American induatry. [Ureal
aud prolonged cheering ] Aa bearing on
that and illuatrating il 1 wish to further
call yonr attention to another fact thai
whou the Republican party name into
power by the election of 1* tbe total
wealth of tbe State of Ohio was a little
over 1110,000,000. Twenty years from
tbat time, in ISBO it was three thousand
two hundred millions of dollars. [Clieera ]
In other worda under twenty yeara ol

While there be hail au audience with Li

to ascertain whether China was disposed
to take any steps towards a settlement of
tbe controversy with France. Hia recent
visit was for the same purpose. Neither
France nor Chiua, however, haa made a

A Coon Hunt at the Geysers
Fer several weeks past chicken* have
been disappearing much faster tbao
I even Geysers guest* oould get away with
them in the regular way, and Col. For
syth, the proprietor, suspecting the
culprit to belong to the outsida army of
chicken theivea, organized a squad of
skirmishers, with a force of two sharp
shooters, one yellow dog, citizens aud
others with lanterns. After reading
the riot act to the riflemen tbe dog was
let loose and was soon heard in fall cry
down the canon. The order to advance
was given by the Colonel—the front
rank consisting of himself and young
Charley Fuss, the stageman with the
latest improved Henry rifles, the rear
rank of citizens with lanterns, and tho
lady guests of the Springs bringing up
the rear as tilo closers, carrying lint and
band.igea for whatever casualties might
befall the sharpshooters should they be
obliged to discharge their firearms. It
was an excitiDg chase, the poor yellow
dog doing his share of the duty nobly.
Back mine the poor animal through the
creek and over the rocks uutilhestopped
uuder the shadow nf a huge oak, bark
ing up the tree. Then the sport became
intensely exciting. As the hunters, and
the citizens, ana the lanterns, and the
ladies came up, a hurried consultation
was held. "I see his eyes," says our.
"Don't shoot until I am ready,"
said the gallant Quartermaster. "Hold
the lautem above my head," says tbe
loog and lithe Foes, aud raising his rifle,
cevering an exact center between the
gleaming eyes, he tired, and down came
crashing through the hranebes into the
jaws of the yellow dog a huge coon,
shot through the bead. The line of
march was once more taken up and
headed toward tbe hotel, where the
squad was triumphantly received. The
Colonel immediately ordered a barrel of
whisky to be opened, and it is aaid tbat
at present thero is a grettt scarcity of the
article en hand. Judgo Advocate Col.
Harry J. Brady has been ordered to the
scene of action to decide who own* tbe
coon. He will also take a supply of
limes and ice.

about fifty five years of ago and had re
sided in the vicinity of Sari Fernando for

The Real Issue.
It is of little importance whether Mr.
Blame's first or second marriage, thirty
years ago, was the legal marriage, but it
is of the highest importauci whether or
uot Mr Blame tells the truth about it
now. His word was so badly impeached
by the Mulligan letters that what he
says in his own defense ou any question
Is not accepted unless corroborated by
