Proposed Fall Baoaa-New County Far
-1 tion Points.
Riverside, Sept. 17.—The question of
holding a two days' race meet at Hall's
track in thia city baa been taken up by
the newspapers and will probably result
in the accomplishment of that object.
Thia county must not be behind in
anch mattere, as it ia an acknowledged
fact that meetings of thia character
advertises a section well and ia tbe re
sult of much good. It iB true it ia a little
late to commence getting up an elabor
ate programme, but aome aplendid
match races could be arranged that
would give satisfaction to the public.
The proposed meeting will take place
tbe week following the Loa Angelea races
in October. A number of petitions are
being circulated asking the supervisors
to take some action in furthering the
proposition of holding an annual county
fair, and suggesting the holding of the
same during the month of October.
These petitions are being signed by the
majority of tbe prominent buaineaa
men, aud it is safe to say tbat their
request will not be disregarded.
The district attorney of San Diego and
tbe Biveraide attorney for the commie
aionera in partition between thia and
Ban Diego county have decided that tbe
bridgea of the county cannot be taken
into account in the aettlement between
the two counties. They hold that pub
lic highways are public property within
the meaning of the law, but that the
title never paeses entirely from the
ownera of abutting property, aa, for In
stance, when a highway ia vacated the
property recurs to the ownera of the
land through which or by which the
road had paeaed. The commissioners of
thia and San Bernadino county will
doubtlesa accept the same ruling in
their aettlement, if they ever get that

The Orange Post saya: The question
waß asked Monday in the proceedings of
the board of supervisors whether every
body that applied would be given work
on the river. "No," answered every
member of tbe board. Give the work
to the citizens of Orange connty. They
have case their lot in withuß and should
have the benefit of the opportunities
the county afforda. They pay tbe taxea,
not only generally, but also for thia very
improvement. Money paid to ouv own
citizens remains at home to continue in
circulation. This season of the year
and thia year in particular it will not do
to eucourage men to come iuto the
county for work with the probability of
keeping aome of them at tbe county's
expense after the work ie over. By all
means give the work to our own people.
Shis view of the case will be com
mended by citizens of Orange county
generally, and enpecially by those who
receive the work.

A Story From Italy or a Murder That
Seemed Justifiable.
Grant Allen in The Speaker: "For my
part," aaid the parson, "I think no pri
vate person ia ever justified in taking a
human life, except, of course, in self
The old Italian brushed off the aajh
from hia cigarette. "Well, I'll tell you
a case," ne eaid, "that I remember in
Padua." He had the misfortune to be
a foreigner, don't you see, and admira
bly aa he spoke our tongne (being mar
ried to an Englishwoman), he wasn't
yet aware that you mustn't argne with
clergymen. He ahut his eyea and drew
hia hande across hia forehead, aa if he
actually recalled to sight the vivid in
cident he waa going to relate to ua.
"I remember one day," he begcn, "when
I waa a mere boy, an Austrian colonel,
on an iron-gray charger, was galloping
at full speed through the Mercato del
Frutti, in tbe center of Padua—you
know the way they used to ride—tip
peta-tip, tippeta-tip, through the
crowded parts of tbe town, clank,
clank on tbe paved streets, aa if the
world belonged to them. Tbe people
with their baskets scattered wide on
either band. 'Ho, bo, look out there!
The Tedeaco ia upon you!' Helter
skelter, right and left, quick as light
ning, tbey cleared the way for him.
Either that or be run down. We didn't
know it then, but 'twas tbe survival oi
the swiftest. And on the Austrian
rode, through the midat of
the market people, whip in hand, apur
at flank—hia horse's hoofs throwing up
apatterod mud on either side into the
faces of the women. A dog ran at his
heels—a great Austrian dog, the right
companion for euch a man—a sort of
feiociouß bloodhound. (And nowadays
Italians have a Triple Alliance! Well,
well, we won't think of it.) A boy waa
passing by on hia way from aohool with
a much smaller dog—a little Italian
dog, Blender, shivering, sensitive—the
very contrast of the bloodhound. The
big brute of an Austrian turned sharply
upon bim with one snap and worried
him. Hie jawa were like a vise. He
almost killed him. The lad wae a gen
tle lad—the kind that never hurt dog or
man in hia life before; but he couldn't
atand by and ace the innocent little
greyhound eaten alive by that great
iron-jawed monater. He picked up a
atone from the atreet and flung it at the
bloodhound. It hit the big dog on tbe
head. Tbe creature howled with pain.
Then the colonel turned and saw it.
'Twaa a good sharp blow. The big dog
turned over and died on the spot. We
held our breathe and waited. It waa a
righteous retribution.
"But the colonel was.furious. He
aeized the lad, who belonged, as it hap
pened, to one of the beat familiea in
Padua, and taking him to the guard
house, ordered bim at once 30 blowa on
the cavaletto. Ah, you don't know
what tbat meana. Thank God. for your
ignorance, thenl They stripped that
delicate, gently nntnred boy—by an act
of tbe legally constituted authority,
mind yon—and they set him upright on
that infernal machine, and there tbey
gave him 90 atrokea of the basti
nado. Ninety, I say, though then sen
tence waa 30, because each blow ia
counted at three atrokea. He crouched,
trembling, and awaited them. Three
quarters of the way through the eurgeon
in attendance cried 'Halt! The criminal
ia fainting.' They took him off the cav
aletto. He waa dead. Pain and terror
had killed him. No redress, of course;
he waa only an Italian.
"Next day the colonel waß Bitting with
aome of hia fellow-officers, sipping hia
vermouth outside tbe Cafe Pedrocchi.
He waa dressed in all hia beat,
hussar coat on bia shoulders, with
arms flying looae, for it happened to be
a feata. Suddenly a man appeared by
the officers' Bide and offered them for
sale a box of matchea. He waa poorly
dreased, like one of the street miaer
ablee. The colonel motioned him away
with an impatient wave of hia hand.
Quick aa lightning the man sprang for
ward, and, drawing a poniard, plunge it
into tbe colonel's bosom. It went
straight to his heart. Ah, Dio! it waa
good to ace the red blood spurt out—

dead. The man lifted his cloak and die

ub caw it—'twas the father of the boy
the colonel had mnrdered. He disap
peared at once, before anybody conld ar

"You seem to apeak with warmth
about it, aignor," the parson murmured,
half in doubt what else to remark.
"Yea, I do," the old man answered,
drawing one wrinkled hand across hia
white mustache ; "for that boy waa my
brother, and the man who executed
justice on tbe colonel, my father."
