THE BEST OF ALL
In All Things All The Time
THERE are many GOOD life insurance companies, but among
them all there must be one BEST. THE BEST is THE
EOUITABLE. If you wish to knew why, send for: i, the
report of the Superintendent of Insurance for the State of New
York on the examination of The Equitable; 2, for actual results
of maturing policies; 3, for statement of death claims paid in
1894. Then you will know the three great reasons of The
Equitable’s supremacy: First, its financial stability; second,
its great profits and advantages to living policy-holders ; third,
the promptness of its payments and liberality of its settlements.

THE RACES.
Pimlico Hesults,
Baltimore, Nov. 21.—Backers of favor
ites had a hard time of it at Pimlico this
afternoon. The track had dreld out, but
was lumpy and frost bitten on top. The
condition of the track may have had
something to do with the poor form
shown by the first choices, but there
were many persons unkind enough to
attribute certain defeats to other causes
than a hard track. Bevins's defeat in
the fourth race was severely criticised.
The filly could not run a little bit and
finished a miserable last in a poor field.
The steeplechase furnished the usual
amount of speculation and disappoint
ment. Seven started with gentlemen
riders up. Five of them carried over
weight. Hiawasse had fifteen pounds
over. Four of the horses fell or went,
wrong to such an extent that they were
out of it early in the gt.me. Summaries:
First race, five fur ongs—Ha-Ha, 99
(O'Donnell), 8 to 5, won; Itoyal H. second,
Lillie Mills third. Time, 1:04.
Second race, one mile—First Light. 101
(Carrigan), 6 to 1, won; Oily Gamin sec
ond, I,ady Adams third; Time, 1:47%.
Third race, seven furlongs—Phebus. 94
(Keefe), 6 to 1, won; Charade second.
Merry Duke third. Time, 1:29%.
Fourth race, one mile—Langdon, lh*
(Lendrum), 15 to 1, won; Pitfall second,
Levina third. Time, 1:45%.
Fifth race, welter weights, one tnile—
Mac Briggs. 112 (Reiff), « to 5. won; Seep
turor second. Intermission third. Time,
1:44%.
Sixth race, steeplechase, full course—
Chevy Chase. 150 (Mr. Nb-hols). 2% to 1,
won; Nadjie second, Empress third. No
time. _
Editors Arrested.
Huntington, W. Va„ Nov. 21.—Quite a
sensation was created here this even
ing when contempt proceedings were In
stituted in the criminal court against
City Editor Howell and others of the
Evening Times for publishing articles
which, it is alleged, reflect strongly on
the court officers. The trial will take
place tomorrow.

MORGAN AND PUGH
Speak at Seale to a Small, Though Atten
tive Audience—At Eufaula Today.
Seale. Nov. 21.—(Special.)—Senators
Morgan and Pugh spoke here today, ar
riving on the 10:35 train from Union
Springs. *
Senator Morgan spoke first, being intro
duced by Mr. H. T. Benton, chairman
of the county democratic executive com
mittee, in a few well chosen words. The
speech of the senator was on a line
with those delivered elsewhere on
this tour, and emphasized his position on
public questions, free coinage of silver,
bond issue, etc., favoring the first and op
posing the latter, saying he would resign
rather than vote for that measure which
will confront the party soon. There was
only a small crowd present to hear these
fine speakers. A most respectful hear
ing was accorded thefn.
Senator 1’ugh spoke on a line with his
distinguished colleague, both speeches
being rather short, but learned and con
vincing. They are learned gentlemen,
our state is proud of their attainments.
They go to Eufaula tonight.
A big frost and some Ice here this
