SIR WALTER THE WINNER
A Game Race for the Brooklyn Handicap A VERY POPULAR VICTORY Th* Twenty Thousand Race Goers Veil With Delight Oallan! Sir Walter's Third Attempt Proves Successful anJ Hi* Owner Gathers in the Big Purse Associated Press Special Wire. NEW YORK, June 4.—Three times has th* gallant and game Sir Walter tried to win the Brooklyn handicap, and at last he has been successful. Twice be fore he was third, beaten out by a frac tion at the end, but today Taral was on his back, and his skill, combined with a lack of judgment on the part of Clay ton, who rode the favorite, helped to give the victory to the son of Midlothian and Lasilla. amid a roar of applause rarely heard now-a-days upon a race track. That it was a poular victory could not be doubted, for from the time he poked his nose into tlie lead to the last fraction ofa second of the race there •was one wild yell for Sir Walter. It was not the cry of the betting man. for the horse was by no means a favorite, but it was the cheers of encouragement from the sport-loving American citizens, 20, --000 being at the Gravesend track to watch the contest. The cheers that bad followed the victory were redoubled when Sir Walter returned to weigh in, and as Taral was hoisted Into the Iloral jockey's chair, where he has sat so many times in his career, he was a very happy person as the yells resounded through the air, and the Immense body of spec tators gave vent to their feelings in shouts, cat-calls and whistles. A more perfect sky foi- the race could not have been desired. The sky was ob scure with light clouds, which broke away now and then to let the sunlight in to temper the strong breeze which Was coming in from the sea. The air was warm and pleasant and everybody was In holiday dress. The bright colors of the women's dresses made a pretty pic ture with the dull background of the grandstand. The crowd was late in reaching the track and at first it looked as if the attendance would lie small. About an hour before the time for the first race the people began to arrive in droves, and they surged around the en trances, which were much too small to admit them as rapidly as they came. Congestion set in nnd fur a full hull the struggling mass of humanity was pouring Into the enclosure. When the first race was run the rush was about over and by :! oclock all but a few be lated ones bad arrived. Delays at the start made the handicap very late and lt was 4:2fi when Ihe eight contestants went up to the post. None of them was noticed until Clifford appeared, and he was applauded well, as was Si. Maxim. The cheers were doubled as Sir Walter, with Taral up. went past the grand ttand to the elbow in tlie track which marked the starting post. There was a long delay for Counter Tenor was frac tious. Four breakaways came, in which tine wing or another was left and had to BO back; the fifth and sixth were excel lent but for Counter Tenor, who stood ptill at the post A short delay then gave the jockeys a chance to steady their mounts and at thirty minutes after they went to ihe post Flynn caught them in good line ami a red Hag Hashed. The immense crowd rose lo their feet with the cry "I'li. yi • off,' and eight highly bred animals In !?an the Journey of a mile and a quarter, at the end of Which was a pursdof JBOOO for the win ner. The crowd at Ihe start from the post objured the vision for an instant ami they swept around the turn into the stretch with Sir Walter showing the way. followed by Bt.Maxim, Lake Short Keenan, Hornpipe, Clifford, Nankipooh anil Counter Tenor. Tbe jockeys set tled down into their places and us they passed the timing stand for the first lime with one-quarter of a mile run In 16 seconds, Lake Shore was the pilot, a neck in front of Sir Walter, he half a length ahead of Hornpipe, Keenan a half behind and a half a length In front of St. Maxim, the others trailing. The pace was slow, for each one of the lot was racing along eonifortal.lv, each Jockey locking his way and waiting pa tiently for the end. There was no crowd ing around the turn, each jockey giving the others a wide berth and the furlong around the oval was one of the fastest of the race, being run in 1214 seconds the leaders not changing their relative positions, although they drew away from the field a couple of lengths while St. Maxim took third place, with Horn pipe fourth, Nankipooh and Clifford next, side by side, and Keenan back with Counter Tenor in the last position' As they straightened out on the back stretch the leaders were still racing along, well in hand, while St. Maxim and Hornpipe were side by side as be fore, with no change in the rear divis ion, the fourth furlong* being made (in 13V1- As they ran up the back stretch they all felt the effect of this urging and Sir Walter's nose began to forge In front, inch by inch the black muzzle began to show ahead and the first four were running so close together that a blanket would have covered them, for St. Maxim had cut the lead over him down to a head, while Hornpipe was gamely running with him, the other four not changing their relative positions. The llve-furlong post was reached in 12V4 from the half in that order, but the spurt was too much for Lake Shore, who then dropped back into sevenlh place, fighting for the last position with Counter Tenor, who was running like a cur. Keenan. too. was out of it and from that time on the three took little interest in the contest. After leaving the live-eighths pole the race began In earnest, and with a little urging Sir Walter shot away from the others to get a good position to round the upper turn. He was a length and a half away before Sims took St. Maxim in hand and sent him after Taral and his mount. In live seconds both were going at about the same rate of speed, only daylight be tween them. Hornpipe was still peg ging away in third place, but Nanki pooh and Clifford had comeup a little. The time to the three-quarters was 1:17. the last furlong being in 1.3 seconds. As they rushed around the long upper turn the pace quickened and Sir Walter took a still larger lead from St. Maxim. While he in turn held his half length lead on Clifford, and the crowd shouted in glee at tbe finis of Sir Walter. There wars much disappointment over the showing of Clifford, w ho did not seem able to get up with the leaders and seem ed ready to quit. It was enough to try any horse. f:ir twelve and a quarter sec onds was the time of the last furlong and this was still three furlongs from the wire. At the mile pole, which was reached in 1:422 . the leaders were Still running well, in spite of the demands upon them, and willing to stand the drive which was sure to come. Taral wus the first to begin punishing. He saw Sir Walter was ready to stop and in spite of his lead of a length and a half, drove it into two, so there would just be so much more for Clifford and St. Maxim, the horses he feared, to gain on him in the last few lengths, lt was a pood thing he did his urging then, for Clayton had at last made up his mind to see what his mount w as made of and. with whip and spur, drove him at the leaders. Sir Walter was staggering along, urged to the utmost, pounding the earth In a listless fashion with his eyes nearly strained out of his head in tlie effort to win the prize he w as try ing for so hard. St. Maxim was tired, too, but Sims bad no mercy and was urg ing him with whip and spur as he had never been driven before. It was useless for the latter, for Clifford was coming like a whirlwind and was in second place fifty yards from the finish. Clayton worked liken steam engine and was soon at Sir Walter's girth, inch by inch he pushed his nose ahead, and as they passed the judges he was only a short head behind Sir Walter and the specta tors who had been working as hard as the jockeys, settled back in their seats, only to rise again as the victors came back to the stand, to break forth into a pandemonium of cheers. Hart was fined $.">0 for disobedience in the Expectation stakes, Sims $50 for the sani.e offense in the handicap and T. Sloan was suspended for a week.

LAW AND NOT MORALITY Will Form tbe Basis of Lucky Baldwin's Defense Reporter* are Admitted to Llaten to the Tale ol the Millionaire* Deception by * Naughty Uirl SAN FRANCISCO, June 4.—10. J. Baldw in has entered upon his defense to the suit brought against him by Miss Lillian Ashley to recover $75,000 damages | for alleged seduction. As announced In Judge Slack's court today the defense is to be one of law and not of morals. For the first time testimony in the case was taken in the presence of press representatives. The court was induced to set aside the order for "closed doors" because from the beginning of the sen sational trial reports of the testimony have appeared In the newspapers. The presentation of Miss Ashley's side of the case after two weeks of testimony has been temporarily closed. Only two points necessary to the maintenance of her cause wore touched upon today. She first sought to prove the existence of the child, of which Baldwin is claimed to be the father, and second, the wealth of Baldwin and his ability to provide for his offspring. The first outline of the defense came from Henry E. Highton, one of Bald win's attorneys. "We acknowledge." said Highton."that the defendant may have been familiar with the plaintiff' and' may have been the father of her child, but we do say that she was not seduced. We claim that the plaintiff is and was an exper ienced and accomplished adventuress who conceived years ago the idea of ex torting money from Sir. Baldwin and has persistently followed that Intention, that she is not what she seems to be in chastity or anything else; that she is not innocent now and was not innocent at the time of the alleged seduction." John Osborne, an Oregon farmer.cailed by the defense, gave the first testimony to show that Miss Ashley, at the time she met Baldw in, was by no means an innocent girl. He recalled an occasion in IXS7 when he got acquainted with Miss Ashley. He was traveling Into Boston on a railroad train, when he felt a light touch on his shoulder. Turn ing, he beheld the plaintiff, who gave him her name and address and invited him to call on her in Boston. Osborne lost no time in availing himself of the invitation and told how he and Miss Ashley had registered at a Boston hotel as man and wife. A photograph, which Osborne said was of himself and Miss Ashley, was presented in evidence. Os borne said Miss Ashley attempted to make him pay her $500 and letters al leged to have been written by her were offered in evidence. Osborne admitted he had been offered $5 a day and expen ses to come here from Oregon and testify. YOSEMITE COMMISSIONERS Object to the Hotel Keepers Pooling Their Profits Rxles Drawn I p Oovernlng the Soliciting of Business—Committees Appointed tor the Coming Year YOSEMITE, June 4,-The Yosemite commissioners met again this morning. Complaints between the hotel keepers who do business in the valley brought up the most heated controversy of the meeting, which was principally between Gov. Build and J. K. Cook of the Stone man house. The governor said he did not think that every hotel in the valley should be allowed to have the stage agencies at their hotel, and made a mo tion that stage lines be compelled to have an agent In the valley entirely sep arate from either hotel. He also said that the pooling between hotels in the valley must be stopped and that unless it was done he would not vote for an other cent appropriation for the Yosem ite valley. He said that two hotels must be run in the valley and no more pool business would be allowed; that he tame to the valley two days in advance of the commissioners Just to look Into this pool business between the hotels. Next came what was called sollei- Ing and the secretary was instructed to draw up rules by which hotels were to be guided and which they were not to violate. Chairman Sperry then named the committees for the ensuing year: Trails and bridges—Johnson andGold berg. Tenements and buildings—Ostrander and Clinch. Preservation' of valley—Field and Boggs. Complaints and petitions—Hindi and 1 Boggs. Finance—Field, O'Brien and Sperry. These committees entirely do away with the old executive committee anil throw the work among the committee instead of all to the executive commit tee. On motion of Clinch the board ad journed to meet In San Franicsco July 2. A ninlster s Experience SAN DIEGO, June .'!.—Rev. G. W Schroder, pastor of the German M.

FRENCHMEN MAKE PROTEST Against the Embargo on French Cattle THE RETALIATORY ACTION Due to the Exclusion of American Meats and Cattle The Order Has Been Rigidly Enforced, but French Shippers Were Slow to Awaken to the Fact Associated Press Social Wire. WASHINGTON, June 4.—The French government has made a formal protest ! against the retaliatory action of this government In putting an absolute em bargo on French cattle. A recent Asso ciated Press dispatch from Havre an i nounced that the I'nlted States consul . had refused to permit a shipment of ! five French cattle to the I'nltedS tates. ; This rigid enforcement of the prohibi tion of importation of meat cattle and their hides from countries infected with cattle diseases, including Europe, Ger ; many and Switzerland, which is provided ; for in the old tariff act of 1R94. but not | invoked until seven months ago. when a | proclamation on the subject was issued, i is directly due to the aggressive policy iof countries like Frence and Germany Jin endeavoring on one pretext or an- I other to exclude American cattle and | meats. The effect of the proclamation whose issuance has just attracted general at tention has been the complete stoppage of shipping cattle from France and Ger many ever since last November, but it was not until our consul, Mr. Chancel lor, stopped a shipment from Havre, a few weeks ago, that French shippers aw akened to the fact. The French for eign office thereupon communicated with Ambassador Patenotre on the sub ject, and an attache of the embassy here promptly called at the agricultural department and made inquiries as to the condition of affairs, and the actual rights of shippers. Then the ambassador filed a communi cation with the secretary of state in which eh asked a number of questions and Inquired why France should be dis criminated against. The letter was for warded to Secretary of Agriculture Mor ton and the latter has just transmitted his reply through Secretary Olney. In this letter Secretary Morton cites the law governing the subject and says the only means of permitting the importa tion from the country from which the ambassador is accredited Is by special action of the president authorizing sus pension of the prohibition on satisfac tory evidence of Immunity of the coun try from cattle disease. He also encloses a copy of the president's suspension pro clamation which authorized the entry of cattle only fror*. Norway. Sweden, Holland, Great Britain, Ireland, the Channel islands and the countries of North. Central and South America. Sec retary Morton concluded with some vig orous statements showing the leniency conferred on foreign shippers by our regulations. France alone has been re garded by agricultural officials here as among the countries worst afflicted with contagious cattle diseases, the percent age of stock affected being regarded as unusually high. Despite this, however, the United States undoubtedly would permit the entry of French cattle under a rigid Inspection system if France would make a similar concession to the United States. PEARL BRYAN'S MURDER Testimony Given st the Tilol ol Welling: Yesterday NEWPORT. Ky.. June 4.—The most Important testimony in the Walling trial yet given was that of Ed Anthony, a newspaper reporter, who said that Walling told him in an Interview in which he represented himself to Walling to be a detective, that Jackson had said to him (Walling) immediately after the Christmas vacation that he intended to bring Pearl Bryan here and live with her. When asked if he told Pearl Bry an of this he answered that he did not and would not do so on account of Jack-' son. In the afternoon Dr. W. D. Littler, a physician at present, but a medical stu dent rooming in the house with Walling and Jackson at the time of the murder, testified that on February 2, the day after Pearl Bryan's body was found, when one of the ladles of the lodging house asked him (Walling) if he had read about the murder, he sat silent and pretended not to hear: another lady of the house called the defendant's atten tion to the fact that he had been asked a question and had made no reply. Wall ing then said: "No. but lam going to read it." He said no more but looked down at some dental Instruments In his lap and fumbled them with his fingers. Again on the night of February 5, when Jackson was first arrested, wit ness (Littler) noticed Walling and, Fred Albion hurriedly rushing back and forth from Walling's room and then into the street after Jackson had been arrested and shortly before Walling's arrest. Mis. Virginia Bowers, of Newport, whose home is on Third street in New port, testified that illness kept her up all night on January al, and that after 1 Oplock she saw a cab get stalled In the street car tracks near her house. She saw a man get off to extricate it and heard the voice of a woman in the cab. She also stated that two or three hours later a man came running out of breath and sat on the doorstep of her house to rest and exclaimed: "I must hurry on or they will kill me." Mrs. Bowers went to the window and said to him: "Hurry Il Got Your Clothes Yet? I H Why don't you go to Gordan's Reduction Sale ? Go today.

PASADENA BOARD OF TRADE Considering Location of Manu facturing Enterprises ALHAMBRA'S SHOE* FACTORY Waots a Site at the Crown of tho Action to De Taken to Encourafe Telephone .Service Extension—Theosophical Society PASADENA, June 4 —At the regular monthly meeting Of the directors of the board of trade yesterday afternoon, two matters of considerable consequence to I'asadena were presented. The first was the proposition of the Alhambra Shoe company, through H. M. Colson, Its president, who said that if they could secure the donation of a cheap lot and a building to cost about $1200, besides ob taining subscriptions to the capital stock to the amount of $15,000, they would transfer the plant to Pusadena. Mr. Colson stated that the plant as It stands at Alhambra had cost about $44,000. The plant contains a large amount of the latest machinery and is capable of turning out 300 pairs of shoes per day with a working force of seventy-five people. The factory now employs thirty people and turns out 100 pairs of shoes a day, representing a business of $75,000 a year. The machinery is sufficient to allow of three times this amount to be done.. The greater shipping facilities of Pasadena offer a much better place for the factory, but the chief need of the company Just at present is more capi tal so that they can buy their material cheap for cash instead of being obliged to buy on time. A removal to Pasa dena would mean a reduction of at least 10 per cent on the expense of running the enterprise. As there are about sev enty-five people employed at $2 per day, it is plain that it is a matter in which the citizens of Pasadena ought to bo interested, and it is to be hoped that satisfactory arrangements can be made for the removal of the establishment. The next matter to come up was the statement of Messrs.
