HsvinK Dropped Briceland- A. Talk With
That OnllMMB-Matter* Somewhat
Complicated - Th« Knoke-O'Haolon
To-nigbt vu the time set for the final
meeting oi the representatives of Clator
and Briceland, preparatory to arranging
a three-mile race on the lower course.
Yesterday afternoon a Rigisteb rep
representative meeting Mr. Briceland
on the street, stopped and mad# the
following inqairy: "I suppose you and
Clator will arrange that match of yours
in fine style, to-morrow evening?"
Briceland—No, sir! Clator refuses to
Reporter—Great hevings! Why how
is that?
Briceland—''Read that," and a piece
of folded paper was banded over which
on being opened was found to contain
the following: 1Bfll
August 1«, 1881.
Fbibwd Hakke—Our race between EJ
and Briceland is otf, as w* have mad* a
race with BoU. W. H. Ha v.
Reporter (after having read the ub-ivr)
—Well, this is tunny.
Brit-eland—Well, now I'll tell you the
whole story. You know we had a meet
ing last Monday night, and it was given
to the papers that nothing had been
done and that we would meet again
Friday night to perfectly arrange mat
ters. Now let me tell you—it was set
up on yon newspaper tiends as we I
wanted matters kepi'mum.is we want« d
to see Boli first, but aiter tue manner in
which I have been treated, I am willing
you should know all. There u'im a race
made last Monday night between Clator
and myself, but it was in this way: We
wanted to get up a three handed race—
Clator, Boli and myself to be the con
testants—and each to put up $500. It
was decided that Ed. Hay for Claytor
and Gus Hanke for myself should go to
Pittsburgh and see Boli the next morn
ing. That much being settled that
night, Clator and I turned
our attention to each other, and it was
arranged that provided Boli would not
row us, that Clator and I should have a
three mile tussle. At that time Harry
Hay said "I suppose there is no use in
putting up a forieit, our word is good
enough" and we made no objection
supposing the case to be as he state !.
The reason no forfeit was put up, was
we wanted to see if Boli was coming in,
and then we'd arrange the entire busi
ness at once, and if not, why the papers
would be drawn up Friday night be
tween Clator and I, at least, that was
our understanding.
i*UW Iipjr auu »v.v
Pittsburgh Tuesday morning, but Gus
Hanke overslept himself and misseil the
train. Clator and Hay went up. and
while 1 don't know what was said be
tween them and Boli, I suppose he
kicked against rowing us, after learning
' we had agreed to row any how, for fear
that we would jockey hiui out altogether,
and then in some way they made their
race. However, we do not kuow what
was done up there as my representative
was not there. All we know is, that that
note was sent us yesterday and I think
their action is rather snide.
"Reporter—No man can tell what a day
w 11 bring forth, but do you intend
meeting him to-morrow night?
Briceland—I don't know.
Reporter—Will you row him this St-a
son ?
Briceland—That I don't kuow. I
would like to row either Clator or Boli,
but as for going into a three-handed af
fair with them now, that's out of the
Report°r—But how about Claior; will
yju row him this season?
Briceland—Well, maybe after he has
'rowed Boli he will challenge me, but
then it is likely I would not be
in trim. Now, you see for the past
three weeks I have not been working,
but rather getting some extra tlcsh off.
I have got to go back to my job before
long and perhaps when ice begins to
form, or I get fat and all out of shape,
he will challenge me as he did last sea
son. Now yon know how I feel about
this matter and 1 must move on.
Reporter—How does the Leasure Club
feel over the matter?
Briceland—Why ths boys are badlv
cut up and feel very much disappointed.
We thought we had a race and I was
going to do my best to beat Bd. Clator.
During the evening several endeavors
were made to find Ciatoi or his backurs
and learn the other side, for there are al
ways two sides. The efforts to tind
them were unsuccessful, and although
word was left for them to ca'l at this
office they evidently did not receive it,
as nothing wss seen of them. From an
intimate friex d of A r. Ciatoi s ther-por •
er gathered a point or two. v. uicli led to
the belief that Clator does not put the
case as Briceland does, but says rather,
that if Briceland has failed to get
a race out of him, it is bis own
fault, as he should have accepted his
(Clator's) proposition made soon after
the Boli race. That Clator was not in
favorofslow work, and finding a good
chance to tackle Boli again, or rather
finding Boli anxious to meet him, decid
ed to give him the opportunity. It is re
gretted that Mr. Clator was not accessi
ble last evening as we should have been
pleased to give his views and story.
What will be done to-night is not known
or even conjectured. A large number
would like to see {he race, and it is
hoped our townsmen may amicably ar
ranirti all differences.
It wag mentioned in a recent issue
that the representatives of August
Knoke, the plucky man of the Eighth
ward, had gone to Pittsburgh to arrange,
or try to effect a race for this man with
Hilly O'Hanlan.of McKeesport. Success
was met with and the race will take
place soon after the 1st of September,
on the lower course, for $2.">0
aside, provided Knoke allow
the Pennsylvania man $50 for ex
penses. Efforts, which no doubt will be
successful, were being made last night
to raise the sum, and aa soon as that is
done O'Hanlan will be telegraphed and
the final paper* signed.
Gus Knoke has a good record for so
young a man and he will make a good
showing. The McKeesport man has
something of a local reputation.

A Suggestion in Relation to Driving-The
Work, etc.
The rush and c rowd on the new State
Fair grounds continues every night. All
the fancy stock is usually out and sev
eral races are organized that furnish any
araonnt of fun. The grounds of the
Association are bound to become the
driving park of the city, and in that con
nection it has been suggested that an
elecir c light be put on thegroun- s ami
bv rnanv the idea is considered a g >od
one. The track improves everyday;
the soil is slightly clayey and i»
being pounded down by the flyiug hoofs
until it is becoming perfectly bird and
While referring to the track, the Kko
jstkr would like to make a suggestion to
those horsemeu who are not familiar
with a race track. On a street or com
mon road it Is always thecr.s om to turn
to the right when meeting another dri
ver. In the old country it is just the
reverse, and it is also the reverse on a
race track The ignorance of this rule
on tho part of some gentlemen has al
ready resulted in one or two collisions
on the track. When you go to drive on
the new Fair ground course, be tore
and always keep to the left.
It is wonderful how the wotk U pro

Snch is the expression from all drug

selling Dr. King's New Discovery for
Consumption. No like preparation can

Cincinnati Horse and Mule Market.
Cincinnati, August 16.—For the past
ten years the average sales for the first
half of August have footed up about 565
head; and at an average price of $74 29.
During the first week of August this
year there were sold 305 head; average
price $82 37. And for the week just
closed the sales were 495 head; average
price $9? 48—making 800 beau (average
$89 31) for the first two weeks of August,
1881, as against 565 head ($74 29) as the
average ior the same period for the last
ten verrs. This shows a substantial in
crease, both as to number of head sold
and prices realized, and is an indication
how the Cincinnati Horse and Mule
Market is looming up. Theje figures
also indicate an early and active fall
trade. Numerous inquiries for stock
are already coming in from nearly all
sections of our country. Yet the
drought in some places, ami the light
and advancing cost of hay and grain
everywhere, may precipitate n>me
horses and mules npon the markt-t and
reduce our prices, while they increase
the number of our sales.
(iood, speedy "roadsters" are eagerly
sought, railroad and large match mules
command excellent prices, hut the main
staple continues to be smooth, blorky
"btreeters," 1,050 to 1,200 lbs., at $ll5.
