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.

De Young libel suit today the defense
opened by reading the defendant's ans
wer In the case, in which the defendant
denies that the charges printed about
the divorce in the article were malicious '
of false, or defamatory, but that they
were true and that Dr. Hearne was a
man of ungovernable temper and did use
profane language. They also deny that
the statements made relative t> the mur
| der of SUUwell were malicious of false,
j or that It was the Intention of the de
fendant to connect Hearne with the mur
der of Stillwell. The deposition of M.
H. de Young was read. In which he de

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.

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

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. Hatcher & Fanher,
representing the Southern California
Telephone & Telegraph company, who
asked a similar endorsement of the
board to that given by the Merchants'
Protective association. Mr. Hatcher
stated that the company had already es
tablished plants in quite a number of
cities In California, and that they pro
pose to operate in all the principal
towns of Southern California. Without
disclosing the names of the backers of
the enterprise they said they had ample
capital and proposed to put In 2000 ex
changes In Los Angeles (where they
had acquired the de Laguna franchise)
and 200 in Pasadena. Of the 2000 for Los
Angeles. 1600 contracts have been ob
tained and about 100 contracts have been
signed In this city. The company gives
contracts of from one to three years,
agreeing to make the rates for telephone
service $2 a month and $3.50 a month for
business places. The cost of the plant
for Los Angeles and Pasadena Is esti
mated at $200,000. The matter was fav
orably considered and taken under ad
visement.
Secretary Boynton read the finan
cial statement of the board for the
months of April and May, showing re
ceipts for the two months from fees and
dues of $323. and expenditures of $330.35.
The balance of cash in bank June Ist was
$280.91. Chairman Stewart of the Fiesta
committee then presented a detailed re
port of receipts and expenditures made
up by Secretary Boynton. This shows
cash contributed. $732.50; expenditures.
$662.70, leaving a balance on hand of
$69.70. An invitation to join in the
Fourth of July celebration at Los An
geles was read, after which tho board
adjourned.
