FUTURITY WILL BE RUN TO-DAY Never Before Were the Starters So Well Matched. Every Entry for the $50,000 Purse Has a Chance to Land It. The Much -Touted How'and Will Ba Ridden by Jockey Wllhlte. NEW YORK, N. V., Aus. 23.— The ereat $50,000 futurity, the biggest of two year-ul t prizes, will be decided at t?heeps hea . Bay to-morrow, opening the Coney Island Jockey Club's meeting. The rac< was never so oi>en as it is this year, tl.e field of eiehteen being very equally matched. This year there are no stars o! superlative luster, although Howland, Gibraltar, Cock Robin, L'Alo ette, The Huguenot, Previous and other candidate? have shown well, both in Dublic and pri vate trials. Then there is a host of dark ones whose capabilities have been care fully kept under cover, and on the whole the race has a delightful air of ancer tainty about it. Naturally every owner and trainer thinks his nomination has a chance at it, and as it is a good gamble oi $300 or thereabouts to via $50,000 not many oT those who iiave a colt or filly engaged are going to ihrow away the chance to tempt for tune. AU the youngsters engaged retired early to-day and will not be asKed to do any thing but the warming-up until they face the starter. The Messrs. Thompson are going to start The Huguenot, Gibraltar and L'Alouette. Willie Martin, Scherrei and Clawson respectively will have the mounts. James R. Keene will be repre sented by Uriel and Cock Robin, to be piloted oy Tod Sloane and "Skeets" Mar tin. Marcus Daly's trio will be Gruna Sachem, Amazonian and Briar Sweel with Taral on Amazonian. Since William Peun's fall irom grace Demagosue is with out a rider, but "J\ruiny" McLaughlin will hunt up a jockey. Previous will be ritiden by William Sim s and John E. Madden will probably have to put up his own lisiitweitiht, Wilhite, on Howland. Lydian is not on the programme, but may be added. If Lydmn is a non-starter Madden may put Thorpe on Howland, Handsel will be ridden oy Lonme Clay ton and Tiny Williams wiiJ be up on Plaudit. Arquebus will have Dogeett up at a few pounds over weight and John McCaferty wili ride his own colt Gala Day, scaling probably four pounds over. Harry Lewis will be hve pounds over on Ruby Lips. Central Trust will probably be ridden by Hewitt. David Gideon said to-night that he did noi think he would start je'rohman, but if he did Perkins would do the riding. The rain to-night was scarcely heavy enough to make tne track real heavy, out if the downpour continues no power can make me footing good. There are several owners who have been praying for rain, as their chargers prefer mud to a fast track. SKIRMISHING OF VETERAXS. Chio Fighting for the Commander in-Chief and Also the Next Place of Meeting. BL'FFALO. N. V., Aug. 23.— Colonel Mact's foes moved in from all quarters of the Union to-day, but when they had been lined up and counted the little man from the Sandusky still Jed all other can flidates for commander-in-chief of the G. A. R. To-night he claims that a majority of six i 3 already pledged to him. By a deal made to-day through Colonel Shaw, department commander. Mack is assured of almost ail the votes of the New York delegation. General Gobin of Penn sylvania and John C. Linehan of New Hampshire got In to-day, and opened fire on Muck, bin it did noi trouble him. The source of his worry is the Cincinnati movement. That movement got here eariy this morning. It brought a caterer and much that is belter than Cincinnati water, and began an open-house cam paign. They claim to have the dupport oi all the Central and Southern State?, and have assurances of friendly interest from a number of Eastern States. General Lint-han began his campaign by saying: "To elect Comrade Mack tbe G. A . R. would be called upon to violate one of us time-honored precedents. It has al ways been the rule to lake a man from the Westons year, and a man from the PJhbi next.' 1 Colonel Sexton of Chicaco has not con sented to the use of his name, ana is not now regarded as a rival of Mack. When he arrived to-day lie found that MacK had picked up a good proportion of the dele gates all through tne West. Mack's supporters declare that they are strong enough to prevail upon tbe en campment, to elect the commander first, und the place of meeting afterward. LUETG 1:1:2 ox triajj. Counsel for the Sv.usagt-Makrr Spring n Sentation. CHICAGO, 111.. Au '. 23. — Adolph Luetgert, the wealthy sausage-manu facturer accused of murdering his wife Louisa, was placed on trial in the crimi nal court to-day. Owing to the wide spread notoriety of the case since the liisnppearance of Mrs. Luetgert on May 1 and the subsequent finding of rings identi fied as hers, and of the traces said to be of human flesh and bones in a vat in Luet gert's factory, it is expected that a great deal of time will be wasted in getting a jury. Both sides announced their readiness to rroceed to trial as soon as the case was called. Lv teert betrayed great anxiety, and was much more nervous aii'i haggard than during the bearing of the habaes corpus case, when he vainly sought re lease on bail. His attorney, Ex-Judge Vincent, sprang a sensation as soon as Judge Tuthiil ordered a special venire of 100 men drawn from the jurj-box under the provisions of the new law. Vincent gave notice thai he would attack the con stitutionality of the law and tile objec tions. This means a lenethy legal tilt be fore the business of getting a jury can be commenced. An npjeal will certainly follow an unfavorable decision by the court, or even if Luetgert is tentenced to hang he will have a long respite until the Supreme Court passes upon the case. Ihe court adjourned to give the bailiffs time to summon the venire. Judge Tut hiil will pass on the defense's objections to-morrow morning. BYPMvTIZErt HI AX A.CTKBSB.

His name is Ferdinand Kneif, and he thinks he is being constantly followed by a well-known variety actress, who has hypnotic power over him. This idea Ims complete sway in hi 3 mind. His one idea makes his life miserable. He no sooner gets a chance to work thun he a, yes up the i>iace on the ground that he cannot hold it after being found out Ly his r-hadow, the actress. He si.ffers much mental distress. His trouble \v:th the hypnotic actress dales back rive years, when he went to *cc a play at a Tund-avenue theater in New York. He was deeply interested in the i lay, and at last, he says, he found thai the soubrette wa« trying to hypnotize him. He says she looked straight at him over the footlights, and said, "1 want you." That settlt-d it in his mind. He went home all in a tremble and in great mental digress, and from that day to this he has not been free from tbe tnought that thi young woman is trying to make an actor of h;m by hypnotizin-j him. MURDER OF DR. CODY. lam and Fobbed by a > tranger With Whom He Was Traveling in Indian Territory. WICHITA. Kans., Aug. 23.— About two we ks ago Dr. John Cody of Pawhuska, 1. T., started irom his 'iome toward Tulsa, taking passuge with a stranger, wuo iiroye a hack between tbe two points. About seventeen mi.es north of Tulsa on tbe Pawhuska trail the two men were seen to make their camp for the night, and the ■iext day the stranger went away with his horse, leaving the hack standing in the middle of the creek. He tolil several par ties that he had mired and would return for the vehicle, and stated that bis com panion had cone on ahead. The back has *tood there ever since, and the people be coming suspicious made an investigation today, which revealed tbe fact that a horrible crime bad been committed. A heavy body had been dragged from the camp to a dry ditch several yards away und tbe trail led to a pile of brush. When his had been removed the half tiecom- posed body of a man was revealed, which was identified as that of Dr. Cody. Mark on the body showed that be had been stabbed. The motive was undoubtedly robbery, as Dr. Cody's gold watch was gone and his pockets had been rifled of ah his money. He left Pawhuska with over $100 in gold. The deputy marshals are making every effert to learn the identity of the murderer. SIXTY-NINE CENTS OR NO COAL Miners Fefuse to Meet the Operators Half Way Fending Settlement by Arbitration PITTBBURG, Pa., Aug. 23.— The coal operators and miners held a conference to-day which was not encouraging to those who wish to end the strike. The operators gave way right along, hoping to induce the miners' representatives to agree to some kind of settlement. . For every point the operators gave up in the interest of peace the miners advanced their own claims. Another meeting will be held to-morrow, but unless the miners show a more conci.iaiory spirit the id ie mines will be started with non-union men, with all the consequences such a proceeding implies. Each siiie will agree to arbitration pro viding its own terms are arcepted. Early in the day he operators learned that tbe miners insisted, in case of arbitration, that the miners get ti9 cents a ton pending the decision of the arbitrators. The oper ators made tbe following proposition: "We will agree to arbitrate the question of wages, and pending a decision we will pay to miners 62}^ cents a ton, thus split ting the d.i Terence between 54 and 69 cents. The arbitrators are 10 retidar their decision within thirty days. As ac cording to custom two weeks' wages are withheld from miners, there will be no payday for thirty days. On pay day, supposing the arbitrators to have rendered their decision, we will pay min ers for their wori: any additional wages the arbitrators mar award to them up to 60 cents. Siiouid the arbitrators award less than 61 % cents, we agree not to de duct the amount from the miners' wages." This p:oposition was rejected by the miners. During the afternoon Colonel W. P. Rend and Piesident Ratcbford got into an altercation. Rend in a passion said be had lleti t the conference because Ratchfonl would not agree 10 arbitration unless all the competitive coalfields were repre sented and the miners were allowed, p ndine arbitration, a 69-cent rate. After Rend left the operators tried to convince Katcnlord thai the Indiana and Illinois mine-owners would consent to in terstate conference. Al last Dolan made a proposition. The miners' representatives, he said, wanted an in ters'.ate conference, if (O-sib.e. If the Indiana and Illinois operators refused to come in, then the miners' officials would consent to discuss the question of settlement with the Pitts burg operators. The miners would not consent to arbitration unless the operators would agree to pay a 69-cent rate pnndine decision. When the miners' officials went to supper they left the operators to confer together. These were so hopeful that the miner would consent to waive their contention lor an interstate agreement that they ap pointed a committee to confer with them after supper. A committee of operators and miners talked together until 10:30 p. m. and adjourned until 10 o'clock to morrow morning. Members of tbe operators' committee said that all idea of an interstate confer ence had been abandoned, but Ratcbford und Dolan said this was not true, and they still hoped to have a conference of the four States interested. At midniglit the operators' committee issued the following statement: "At a joint meeting of tbe committees various propositions were submitted as a basis for arbitration. The point at is-ue is the rate which shall be pa id pending decision by the arbitrators. No agreement being ar rived at and the conference desiring time to consider the proposals made the con ference adjourned. until to-morrow." Jrnlnus'i Causes a Murder.

The last Missouri Legislature passed w iit is known as the "breeders' law," because it was introduced at the request of the stock-breeders. It made race playing except at racetracks illegal, and was very strict. The law effectually stopped the poolrooms until Judge Murphy, in a deci sion in St. Louis recently, held that it was illegal. Then the p olrooms opened up in old-time siyle and ihe play went on In naif a dozen place*. Prosecutor low declined to interfere, saving thit the Grand Jury would meet, and as all Juitict court cases would be appealed anyhow he preferred that they should originate in the criminal court. But tbe racetrack men were not satisfied with this condition of things, and swore out warrantu c argini; the poolroom men with gambling, and last Thursday t fie police made h raid on the poolrooms, closing most of them and arresting i laree number of their visitors. The poolroom men threaten venceance, and since thai they have sworn out war rants aguinst tbe racetrack men, but to day the hitter took the initiative ana secured a temporary injunction forbidding the police to raid the racetracks.

The siatue arived from Paris yester day, and without delay it will be raised to its position overlooking Hayes street. But few of the congregation know who gave the statue, and those few will not tell, for it was the donor's wish that this should be kept secret.

Address v iraq Horrr, Burllngame, Ran Mateo County CaL An insurance and collection agent in Otsego County, New York, constantly recommends Ripans Tabules to every- body whom he suspects of suffering from dyspepsia, and takes pleasure in relating his own experience, as follows : " I have been a sufferer from dyspepsia for a dozen years or more, and have tried all kinds of medicines that were said to be good (or a positive cure), but none of them afforded much relief. I have always been blessed with a keen appetite and have, perhaps, in- dulged too heartily at times and suffered accordingly. Last winter while traveling through an adjoining county I first learned of Ripans Tabules, and was induced by a friend to try them. They have done me a great deal of good, and I think that I have fair promise of a permanent cure. If I would b* regular about my meals now, I am sure I should be well."
