THE FALL SEASON OPENS Rey el Santa Anita, Henry of Navarre, Domino, Clifford INTENSELY EXCITING RACE Tbe Half in 53 Seconds, the Three- Quarters in 1:17 1-2 henry of Navarre the Winner In 2:oo—Other Races—No Law Against Prize* Fighting in Texas associated Press Special Wire NEW YORK, Sept. 17.—This was a great day at Gravesend track for it was tbe opening of tbe fall season with tbe greatest race of the year as the feature. Henry of Navarre, Rcy el Santa Anita and Domino, with weights for age, Clif ford with five pounds off and Sir Walter With twelve pounds' allowance, started. Griffin, instead of Perkins, was given the mount on Navarre. By this change Beiff got Rey el Santa Anita and Simras eras on Clifford, Taral on Domino and Doggett on Sir Walter. Navarre opened favorite at 8 to f>, but m spite ot the money bet on him he did not get any lower. Tbe resaon for this was tne bet ting on Clifford, for Ro»ers had declared he would win. The opening price was 2}f. and ho was soon at 2. Domino re ceded to 4 from and Rey el Santa Anita from 8 to 12, while Sir Walter was Steady at 3 to 1. At the post Domino acted like a demon and refused to break, so it was ton ni in sea before they came up to the starter's line and tbe red Hag dropped. Sir Walter was the first to show and came into the stretch for the first time under a gentle pull, with Rey el Santa Anita second and Henry cf Navarre tb>rd. Clifford fourth and Domino last. They came slowly down in front of the grand stand at little more than an exercise gallop, nearly all of them buck-jumping, and the first quarter took 26% seconds. Around the turn they increased a little and at tbe three-eighths Sir Walter was a length and a naif in front of Rey el Santa Anita and only a head In front of Navarre, while Domino was last, hanging close to Clifford. Fifty-three seconds was the time to the half, ami the race had just cegtin. It took twelve and a quarter seconds to run the next lunong, and Taral had begun to urge Domino and passed Clifford, on which Simms was sitting easily. Tbe tbree-quarter pole was reached in 1:17 W. ■ Sir Walter was going without much ■urging and Key el Santa Anita had opened a bit of clear track from Henry of fNavarre, which wos two lengths in front -of Domino, and all but the latter going easily. - Then the horses slacked and it took 13 seconds for the racers to get " around the bend, but without change in .positions. In the next 13 seconds came ithe critical pooint for Domino. Would ;he go beyond what was supposed to be his distance? Taral was at work with iron and bat and the black colt leaped übead, but only for an instant. Yard by yard the others left him straggling in the rear, and at the mile post when the horses straight ened out into the stretch he was hope lessly beaten. At the head of -the stretch Sir Walter was still in the load, having run toe mile in 1:43.,, but he was in troublejond Doggctt was plying the whip. He was only a neck in Lont of Rey el Hants Anita, but Henry of Navarro was coming and only a neck behind in third place. Clifford was fourth, but some distance behind, and now Simms was ilding hard. With only an eighth of a mile to go Rey el Sana Anita quit and joined Domino, although Keiff still tried to land him. Sir Walter was through, too, and the best he could do was third. Griffin,ou Henry of Navarre,was through urging, for only an accident could pre vent him winning, and at 2:09 he passed the line well in front. Clifford managed to get tbe place away from Sir Walter in the last sixteenth, and again the gallant son of Midlothian had to take a lower place. It was a contest of the giants, in which Henry ot Navarre was the best oy long odds. Six furlongs—Jack of Spades won, Rubicon secona, Luster third; time, isiew.

IiOS TEEITAED: WEDNESDAY MOKNTT-TGk SEPTEMBER IS. 1893. REPUBLICAN STATE TICKET Nominations at the New York Convention PLATT'S SL ATE PUT THROUGH Gov. Morton's Presidential Candidacy Is Formally Launched The Platform Demands the Enforcement of Sunday Liquor Laws-.-Wisdom of Re publicans, Unwisdom of Democrats Associated Tress Special Wire.- SARATOG A, N. V., Sept. 17.—Cbaun cey M. Depew and Thorn s Piatt are con spicuous in the Ilepublican stato conven tion, which was called to order at 12:10 today by Chailes W. Hackett of the state committee. Whon Mr. Plstt entered the ball there was a tremendous uproar, men standing on tl:e seats and cheering vociferously while tho band played Hail to the Chief. Mr. Hackett named Hon. Charles G. Sherman of Onondaga as chairman. While Sherman was addressing the con vention the Republicans, advocating the enlargement of the state committee, A.H. Steele of New York introduced this compromise resolution: "Resolved, The Republican state com mittee be ana hereby is directed to for mulate and report to the next state con vent.on a plan for its enlargement so that in as large a sense as may bo pr.c ticable it shall be representative in char acter, and the prosecution of tho cam paign work lie brought thereby into close touch with local leaders and conditions throughout the state." Hamilton Fish was made chairman of tbe committeo on resolutions. A resolution was received from the Municipal Labor congress of New York asking for a labor plank. Chailes W. Bowen of New York intro duced this resolution: J 'The representatives of New York in state convention assembled, cordially in dorse tlie administration of UovornorLevi P. Morton and exptress the nope that his name may be pressnted to the National .Republican convention of 1>!'(» as the choice of the Republican representatives of the Empire state for lirst place on the presidential ticket.'' The resolution was adopted by accla mation amid great applause. The committee on contested seats are in meeting and hearing the contest in the first Erie district. It has been given out tbat Congressman Mahoney's delega tion will be seated. At 2:80 o'clock an informal meeting of the Erie county dele gation was helil and it was determined the entire delegation would bolt if such action was taken. Not only was this de termined, but Comptroller Rouerts an nouncea he would withdraw his name as a candidate ii the thing occurred, and thus break the slate. The state Republican convention closed its session tonight after following closely tue work mapped out,. by its leaders. It named this ticket for representation to tho people of this state in November next: Eor secretary of state, John l'aliner, Albany. Comptroller, James K. Roberts of Erie. State treasurer, A. B. Colvln of Warren. State engineer, C. W, Adyas of Oneida. Attorney general, V, S. Hancock of Oneida. Judge of the court of appeals, Colonel Ora E. Matin of Broome. The platform demands enforcement of the Sunday liquor laws and the preserva tion of the Sabbath. It scores the Demo cratic administration lor failing to de fend the rights of American citizens, resident or traveling in foreign countries, and for permitting foreign countries to encroach on the western hemisphere. The tariff and the handling of tiie de ficiency question by the last Democratic congress receive condemnation. A sound and stable currency, giving the people a dollar's worth for a dollar, is demanded. J The return of prosperity is hailed as re sulting from the election ol a Republican congress, giving confidence to the people in the assurance that their further tariff tinkering will be impossible. The ignor ance and unwise policy of the Democrats in passing un unconstitutional income tax is referred to and the favorable record of the Republicans in congress in their opposition to that law. Governor Morton's wise and patriotic administration is endorsed and bis can didacy ior president formally launched. The dangers to the people of the return of the Democratic party to power in this stato ore portrayed, asserting that tne same gentlemen who have been repudi ated by the voters are still in charge of the affairs of the Democracy in this state and their return to power will mean but a repetition of the old outrages. Tne Raines ballot reform law is pointed to as the beat enactment for ballot reform yet passed in this state. The platform further sets forth that the demands of the people in the city of New York have been granted in reform legislation. That it was a close following of the work mapped out is evident froti: tbe fact that security ol tho state ticket was made possible by the vote of one man. When the morning sun broko ovor Sar atoga it saw such iron-bound plans for the convention that it was conceded that there would be no friction 'and that the plans of the state committee could be carried out. After the opening session there ap peared on the horizon a cloud of discon tent that grew so rapidly that at 3 o'clock the fate of the state officers seemed to bo sealed against the rcnoniination. The trouble arose over the contest for seats in the First district, and hinged on the seat ing of the contesting delegation, headed by Congressman Mahany. With everything apparently running smoothly, the leaders were suddenly con fronted with the statement made by State Committeeman George Urban, jr., and Senator Parsons that if the Mahany del egation was seated, tho Erie county dele gation would leave the conve-ition, and Mr. Roberts' name would bo withdrawn from the convention, thus breaking the slate. When tbe convention met the committee reported against Mabany. It was learned that the vote was 10 against and 15 for, the deciding vote having been cast by Mr. Wheeler of Utica. Thus was the catastrophe averted. The next nearest approach to a break in tbe plans came when Warner Miller introduced his resolution for the protec tion of tbe American Sabbath and the carrying out of the excise laws. The lead ers who had proclaimed against any excise action accepted the situation and the result was that all of the friction ceased. Action on the enlargement of the state committee was tabled, and local Sunday options lor counties was also killed. ' Suit for rialicious Prosecution FRESNO, Sept. 17.—Police Officers Matin - » n and Caufiela today commenced an action for da mages in the sum of $3000 against T. P. Kong, v Chinese merchant, for malicious prosecution. Tne suit is the result of an action brought by Kong against the officers a few weeks ago for malicious mischief In breaking into his place of business in search of a lottery game.

Under normal conditions the troasury gains some gold nearly every day, as the banks in all of the sub-treasury cities prefer to exchange for notes any small amount of gold they may take in over their counters, especially if their reserve is in no need of replenishing. During the last few weeks the aggregate of these deposits has been considerable; the offers of large amounts, however, have not been plentiful when accompanied by condi tions the department could not accept Several offers of small amounts have lately been made with the stipulation that the department pay expressage both ways, but thore is no appropriation for this purpose and these offers have been declined. It is said at tne department, the most generous offers of gold nearly always come from tho banks In Chicago and St. Louis, and when tne gold is the scarcest these banks always come forward and express a willingness to help out. At New York today $430,000 in large United States notes was deposited in exchange for small notes to be shipped to a num ber of points east, south and west. The exchanges aro received with satisfaction at the department, as they reduce tbe supply of cash, which, in time, it is ar gued, is sure to result in a stiffening of tlie rates of interest and iincidentally In a cessation of gold for foreign invest ment. The talk of an early bond issue has practically died out here, the opin ion among offioials being that while Pres ident Cleveland will protect national credit when in dangei by any means within his power, the present situation Is not suoh as to call lor any action on his part. The persons best qualified to speak on the subject say another bond issue is certainly not within the proba bilities. A. A. Eokitrom of 324 S.

The company was notified to place bodies in hermetically sealed caskets. Anarchy in Congo Free State LONDON, Sept. 17.—Private letters which have been received here from the Congo Free state say tbat affairs there are in a condition verging upon anarchy. Encounters between tbe Belgian forces and natives which have boen reported in otticial dispatches as resulting in Belgian victories are Baid to have been in fact serious reverses.

Rudolph Franke, the father of the girl, had declared she should not marry and positively refused to give his consent, lie thought he held tbe key to the situa tion, as bis daughter is a minor and could not get a marriage license without his consent. The young couple found a way to outwit the fatner, howover, and they bad a merry time on the sea. After ward they called on tbe angry father and he foreave them. Adolph Kreyey if a yonug business man. He is 122 years of ago, vhilo the bride is just IT. They have been trying to get married for months, but the father always stood in the way Recently Mr. Kreyey called on Franke and made a plea for his daughter. The father positively refused his consent and told tbe young merchant to be patient and wait. After a few weeks hal passed Kreyey resumed bis task to secure the father's permis sion. His second plea was more unsuc cessful than the first, and then he con cluded Franke had made up his mind not to let him have the girl. ■ A contract marriage was suggested, but the young lady was not willing. Then the elooment to f,sea was planned. The tng was secured by the merchant and Captain Wilson was engaged to per form tbe cereraonv. When they were four miles out at sea the ceremony was per formed by the captain and tbe couple were given a certificate. When Mr. F'ranke learned that tho ceremony had been performed he hastened to find his daughter. The party enjoyed a wedding supper in San Francisco, where the angry lather located .tbem. He had not been invited and in consequence he was not a welcome guest. The reception to the xjride and groom was rudely disturbed by a policeman who accompanied Mr. Franke. The latter de manded that bis daughter accompany nim home, but she refused. Then the father called upon the policeman to re move his daughter by force on tne ground that she «».< a runaway and was not legally married. It looked for a time as though '.he bride might be taken away by force. The groom got excited and so did tbe guests. Then the bride made a speech. She said that she was legally married and she proposed to remain witli her husband. The marriage certificate was produced and the policeman at once saw that he bad no business at the ban quet and withdrew. The irate father still declaad that the marriage was ille gal and tbat he would have his daughter back. However, tbe feast went on with out his presence. Sen change of time table Terminal rail way. A STABBING AFFRAY A Chinaman Who Would Have His Debtor Arrested A cutting affray occurred in Chinatown last night about 11:30 o'clock, but no ar rests were made. Ah Wong went to collect a small bill from another Chinaman named Ah Fook on Aplablasa street.

The latter caught the weapon with his right hand, but was severely cut. He al lowed his assailant to get away and went and had the wound dressed. Officer Mc- Kenzie heard of the fuss and went to the injured man. Wong said that he would not proseeuto tho othor man unless he failed to collect the bill. He wanted the officer to accompany him to where Fook could be found and make him disgorge the amount of the bill and the expense of having the wound dressed. Mr. McKenzie ond Officer Miller, wbo had come up told the fellow that the po lice department was no collection agency and unless he would prosecute Foulr. for assault to commit murder or assault with a deadly weapon thoy would have noth ing to do with tho case. Wong was ob durate, so he was left to patch up his wound and try and collect the account as best be might. Consolidated California and Virginia SAN FRANCISCO. Sept. 17.—Edward S.
