thing he had to decide in this application
was whether there was any law making

“In the case of Harris against White.”
said he, “ it was distinctly decided that it
was not a crime to hang up a purse to let

Little Rock, Ark., Oct. 14.—The govern
or today expressed himself as being thor
oughly determined to prevent the prize
fight at ail hazards. He says that the
action of the circuit Judge and the sher

where there will be no interference.”

Not Be an Asylum for Negroes.

telegram of Inquiry from the government
physician at Eagle I’aas, Tex., asking
why Birmingham had quarantined
against the Alabama negro Mexican col

tine as a health precaution, but that the
city would not become the asylum for
the unfortunate negroes who left this
country for Mexico.
Yesterday the colored churches of the
city raised by contribution a sum of
money to be expended In getting the
negroes who have already come to Bir

Miss Rita and Jim B. Knocked a Half Second
Off of the World Record—Geers
Landed Three Winners,
Lexington, Ky., Oct. 14.—"When the two
pacing mares, Mias Rita and Josie B.,
went a mile this afternoon, double, in
2:12%, they made a new world's record
by shaving a half second from the 3:12%
that Effie Powers and Prestoria Wilkes
made over the state fair track at Spring
Held, 111., three weeks ago. The last half
was made in 1:04% a 2:09 gait; the last
quarter in 1:33 a 2:04 gait.
Another world's record was broken in
the 2:06 pace, as there developed a result
of the only instance when flve horses
earned money out of a race where only
four moneys were given, as Rachel, Vera
Capet and Direction divided third and
fourth money. Guenette won second
quite handily by finishing three times
second to Star Pointer.
Geers drove the three winners in to
day’s events, and with Boreal in the
Kentucky stakes liis hand had much to
do with the viqtory. On form Boreal was
hardly regarded in the contest, but he
developed high rating In the stamina
test. Oakland, Baron and Fred Kohl
fought a battle to the half in two heats.
Kohl won two heats and Killona one,
and Geers, who had been hireling the
track well behind, showed up next to
and outposted Oakland Baron home in
2:16%. Though defeated, by no means
was he disgraced, as every inch of the
five heats was he an active contestant,
figuring in the fray as long as he re
mained in the race, forcing Fred Kohl to
earn his best record of 2:12%, and it was
the fight of Fred Kohl and Oakland
Baron Ih%t gave Boreal the race.
