The Crows won. That much Is true,
but the margin was too small to be
pleasant to the 3.000 local rooters who
were present. Nino to eight was how
tho fcoro stood when the game was over,
with two of tho visitors still on bases.
Richmond found McCoy for four'oen
base hits, including a beautiful home

It was unintentional, perhaps, on
Umpire McLaughlin's part, but his par?
tiality to tho home team certainly
played an important part in securing
the victory for them.
Right hero I want to say for the R:a
noko team that they are certainly a
very gentlemanly set of players. They
silently abided by some of Umpire Mc
Laughlin'B rulings to-day whon they
had every right to kick.
In tho seventh Nevlns was on second
and Kain on first when McGann hit to
HurnB. Nevlns ran oil second directly
into the shortstop, who was provonted
from retiring the runner at first. Novins
was called Bafo at third, when uncer?

In tho first both sides scored thrco

ltloycle Kaee and Three Trotting Kvents
Witnessed by a Good Sized Crowd.
About 200 lovers of racing sport, in?
cluding a number of ladies, spent an en?
joyable afternoon yeBterday at the
Driving Park v/itnessing contests of
speed. During the early part of the
racing the track was heavy with dust,
but a brief thunder shower soon placed
it in good condition.
The first ovent of the day was a bicy?
cle race between George L Hart, of tho
Virginia Wheel Club, and R. F. Booth.
R. Frank Taylor was entered but did
not start. Tho contest was a half mllo
dash from a standing start, and was
won by Hart, who was dressed in regu?
lation racing costume, wearing llttlo
elso beside the ribbon colors of his club
and a smile of confidence.
Do took tliu polo from Bosth at tho
turn and gradually drew away finishing
in 1.33 with a spurt of sp.'od that won
for him much applause. Tho boys com?
plained of their wheels slipping in iho
The first "boss" race was a match of
inilo heats, best two in three, between
VV. P. Airbeart's promising filly, Alma
B., and the diminutive Buckskin, owned
by W. F. Gold. Buckskin is not much
larger than a jack rabbit, and his poor
going was the cause of much jest among
tho spectators. George Dyer sent Alma
around tho track in a slow gait, and
easily won the boat in 3:30.
The next heat was concodod to "Bror
Rabbit," as ho was dubbed, but Alma
could lose the heat in no other way than
by being auado to run undor tho wire,
l'ho third and deciding heat went to
Alma in 3:18. Tho winner is a hand?

The managorsof tho track hurried up
the events and did not keep the crowd
waiting long between heats. Barring
tho race just describod the card was a
good ono and reflects much credit upon
tho managers, the Dyer Brotbors.
Emonia, a strong, big sorrel mare, 5
years old, out of Bluegrass by Bostonian,
ran an oxbibition half mile, carrying a
heavy weight jockey in 53 seconds. Tho
animai has been worked on tho track
but fcrty livo days and her fast going
in a big easy stride proves her to bo a
good racer. Sho is jointly owned by
Georgo Dyer and Dr. Sawyer.
The closest contost of tho day was a
mile boat race between L. Dolaney's
big Sidespot, by Sam Purdy, and J. C.
Lacey's Black Diamond. In tho first
heat the black borso showed several
bursts of speed, but hisownor, who was
driving, could not hold him down.
Sidespot won tho hoat by ten lengths in
3:02}*. W. C. Dyer was then placed in
the soat behind Diamond, and he showed
Delaney his heols in a close finish in
2:59'-i'. In tho third and deciding hoat
Diamond broko at tho turn andS:dcspot
was sent away in a long load. Tho
black borso nearly closed tho gap sev?
eral times, but whenever he would got
within reaching distance would again
break. Delaney won with Sidespot in
a driving finish in 3:59)?.
Ida, a sorrel maro ownod by J. L.
Watts and drivon by W. C. Dyer, won
threo straight half mile heats from
Tompkins' black stallion Connova Boy,
by Ivory outof Banker, in 1:27>$, 1:23}?
and 1:23, winning each hoat by loss

Nkyv Obi.kans, Aug. 25. ?From in?
formation received by the steamer
Uusaie, of the Southern Pacific line,
which arrived last night, tho Nicaraguan
government has defied tho governments
of both tho United Statos and Great
Britain, and has taken into custody
representatives of both nations. Tho
commanders of tho war vessels wnich
have been at tho seat of the disturbance
for the past month have stood tamely by
and permitted tho soldiers of Nicaragua
to arrest the subjects of their respective
countries and make no protect, and tho
I consequence of this apathy may be tho
loss of possibly a dozen lives and the
confiscation of the property of the pris?
When the Gussle left Blueflelds last
Sunday tho people of that town were in
hourly anticipation of the Nicaraguans
attempting further indignities and
threatening the peace of tho place by
placinir tho remainder of tho American
and native population under arrest.
The town and in fact the entire resor
vation is bereft of tho semblance of
oitbor American or English protection
and the merchants and others doing
business in tho town fear that every
moment will be the last in which they
may assert any individual authority.
The otllcors of the Gussio, familiar as
they aro with the condition of affairs in
the disturbed country, consider that the
cri&ia is at hand and the timo for action
on tho part of tho United States is now
or never. The men who have boon
placod under arrest and whom tho
Nicarguans intend convoying to Grey
town, where they are to bo accorded tho
privilege of a trial, aro not in any man?
ner connected with tho uprising of the
Mosquito chief, Clarence, and aro all
men ot prominenco in the reservation
and possoesed of considerable means.
To this fact is ascribed their arrest, as
the Nicaraguans are said to becomo tho
owners of tho property of tho prisoners.
If the men aro found guilty, or aro so
presumed by tho tribunal boforo which
they will probably appear, the properly
of tho prisoners will go to help till tho
deploted coffers of tho oppressors of tho
roiorvation and if tho prisoners aro not
sentenced to bo executed by tho Nicar?
aguans they will bo ordered from tho
country and will leave their property in
tho bunds of their captors. This is
said to ho ono of tho stakes for which
tho Nicaraguans aro playing, and it Is
said that if the powers do not Interfere
tho destinies of tho puoplo at present in
Rlucflolds aro entirely in tho hands of
tho soldiers of the ropublic.
The names of tho men why have been
prisoners by the Nicaraguans and who,
at tho timo tho Gussio left, wore in cus?
tody aro as follows: W. 11. Brown,
the agent of the Southern Pacific Com?
pany; a Canadian captain; Georgo Wilt
bank, an Amorican planter;Capt Brown
Rick, of the steamer President E. Car -
soso; E. D. Hatch, English vice consul;
Sim Clapton, an American and resi?
dent of New Orleans; H. C. Ingram, a
plantor, partner of John Wilson ,fc Co., of
Now Orleans; John Taylor, nativo
plantor; I. Simarkham, Taylor; John O.
Thomas, S. A. Hodgson, George Hodg?
son and Washington Glover, native mer?
chants; Charles Patterson, vico-presi
dont of the Mosquito reservations, John
Cuthbert, attorney general of tho reser?
These men were arrested without roa
son or justice, the cause of tho arrest
being stated by tho soldiers as aiding and
abetting tho uprising of the nativos.

When the Gussio wa3 ready to sail for
the States the commander of the Colum?
bia sent an official of tho ship on board
of tho Southern Pacific vossel with dis?
patches which ho desired to convoy to
the Secretary of tho Navy in this coun?
try in person. Ho camo fully prepared
to make tho voyage but tbo captain of
the Gussio and tho agent of tho line de?
cided that it would bo an infringement
of tho quarantine regulations to carry
passengers, and refused to permit tho
officers to mako tho trip. Tho des?
patches wore then sent by the captain
of tho Gussio and will bo in tho hands
of tho Secretary ot tho Navy not later
than Sunday evening. They contain a
full account of tho occurrences in the
reservation and may contain tho reasons
of the commander of tho Columbia for
acting as ho did in refusing to accord
protection to tbo Americans in that
country. _

said that tbo Bristol mill has ordors for

Pythian olllcers aro much disappointed

failure of most of tho railroad com?

of many people, who would otherwise
attond, to visit tho Grand Army en

is expected that Texas will snnd ono of
