VOL XV. LED BY LOWLANDER. Turf- Loving Public Disap pointed With the Suburb- an's Outcome. A Horse Little Thought of Wins the Great Event Easily. * > The Second Horse Under the Wire Also a Despised Outsider. t§mpliffhtep,the Popular Idol, Could Only Finish Third. New York, June 20.— The Suburban handicap of 1803, the tenth in the ' his tory of the event, was a most grievous disappointment to the turf-loving pub lic. Lamplighter, their idol, who was looked upon as a sure victor in the great race, was made to fall from the high pedestal upon which he had been placed, and the halo of victory which had gath ered about him because of his numerous successes was "completely dispelled. He was vanquished strictly on his merits, as the race was a fairly ruu one from the beginning to the end. There was no crowding or jostling, as was the case in the Brooklyn handicap; the field was comparatively small, and. every jockey rode to win in as fair a manner as pos sible. Lowlander, by Lowland Chief, dam Kestless, a horse that has had rather an erratic career, won the race from end to end. He went out at the fall of the flag.set the pace to suit himself.and won almost as he pleased in the fast time of 8:06 Terrifier, Father Bill Daly's candidate, was second, three-quarters of a length away, while Lamplighter, the even money favorite that shrewd turfmen said could not lose, was third, lour lengths back. •;. Lou hinder-, 10 to 1. Lowlander was at ten to one against In the betting, and all Kinds of fancy prices could be obtained about the chances of Terrifier. The race was worth 818,000 to the winner. $5,000 to the secoud horse, aud $2,000 to the third. The winner is owned by bookmaker Fred Lowe, and besides the rich stake he netted many. thousands of dollars in bets by the victory of his horse. Suburban day this year opened and continued bright and clear, but op pressively hot. A pitiless sun beat down en the track with withering in tensity. Every breath of air that reached the sweltering occupants of the grand stand was like a blast from an oven, while the betting ring, was like a huge furnace. Those who had the Jiardihood to venture within its portals Were soon perspiring as freely as if within the steam room of a Turkish bath. The crowd began to arrive early. The trains were simply packed with a.solid, perspiring mass of humanity.and when the bugle called the horses to the post in the first race, fully 20,000 persons were on the grounds.and this immense throng was steadily aug mented up to the time set for the Su burban. The first three races could not be run quick enough to suit the crowd. They had come to see Tiie Suburban Prize contested for, and it could not be served up too quickly for them. The victories of Dobbins, Ameer and Lizzie created but meager enthusiasm, but, the third race over, matters began to assume a more animated appearance. This was especially true of the betting ring, which, crowded and thronged as it had been before, ' now became densely packed. Everybody must have a bet on the Suburban, and everybody seemed to be there. Crowding and jostling, there was in plenty, but it was all done pood naturedly and no accidents oc curred. Kacelaud and Charade were early declared out of the race, and the betting crowd, therefore, had nine horses from which to pick the winner.. The question was quickly settled, as far as the betting ring was concerned, as to which of the thoroughbreds would prove the victor. Lamplighter was immediately and spontaneously installed an even-money favorite and so he re mained throughout. Banquet was next in demand at 4s, while Mars, Lowlander and Pesarra were at 10s. Twelves could be obtained about Dr. Ilasbrouck and The Pepper, and 30s and 60s about Ter riiier and the English horse Iddlesleigh. An immense amount of money was wagered on the result, and most of this remained with the bookies as subse quent events proved. At the Post. The race.was set for 4:so,and promptly at that time the horses were called to the post. Pesarra was the first to ap pear on the track, but immediately after him came Terrifier, The Pepper, Dr. Ilasbrouck and Iddlesleigh, while Low lander and Banquet quickly followed those. Lamplighter and Mars did not pass the grand stand, but sauntered from their stables to the post. It was 4:58 before the horses had been assigned to positions for the grand handicap. After several breaks the flag dropped to a good start, with Dr. Ilasbrouck m front. The others were almost in a line close behind. McDermott immediately drove Lowlander in the lead, while Terrifier and Iddesleigh took second and third places respectively. Dr. Ilasbrouck was fourth, and Lamplighter lay fifth, in a good position. The others were in a bunch in the rear. This order was maintained to the middle of the back stretch, where Lowlander and the other leaders drew away from Lamplighter .and those composing the rear bunch. At the head of the back ■stretch Iddlesleigh dropped back beat en, aud Lamplighter and Banquet be gan to make their run. Lowlander turned into the homo stretch three lengths before Terriiier and Dr. Ilas brouck, who were neck and neck two lengths before Lamplighter. The Plying Leader never faltered, and passed under the wire a rather easy winner. Terrifier shook himself loose from Dr. Ilasbrouck in the final sixteenth, and secured the ■place by four lengths from Lamplighter, who beat Dr. Ilasbrouck a head. Ban quet, The Pepper, Mars, lddesloigh and Pesarra finished in the order named. The horses in the Order in which they finished, their weights and jockeys, follows: nCfse.' Rider. Lowlander, 105 .".

The guards and oflicials stationed at the gates cried out the warning: "No exit at this gate until the Suburban. " Many did not like the idea of being made prisoners for several hours, but there was nothing else to do but submit if one wished to see the race. Over inside the enclosure it was seen that the fence surrounding the mounds was at all points guarded by Pinkerton men. In quiry elicited the fact that these Extraordinary Precautions were taken to prevent the Guttenburg race track people and the Fort Lee pool rooms trom getting any informa tion regarding the races at Sheephead, but subsequent events showed that this was not altogether the cause. It was said later that the jockey club was also fighting the Western Union Telegraph company, because of • dissatisfaction over the amount the telegraph people were paying for sending race news to Western' pool rooms. The Western Union oflice was removed from the course by order of the officials, and it was there fore impossible to get any news from the track, even for the press. The Western Union established an olliee some distance away outside the track, but this could not be reached on account of the '-tio exit rule." After the Subur ban, when egress was allowed, the wires which happened to pass over the jockey club's property were cut. Communica tion was finally restored and then some person unknown gave out - untrue information as to the placed horses in the Suburban. This made Lamplighter the winner, Mars second and Idle sleigh third. The false information was telegraphed all over the country and published in Now York, and caused a good deal of contusion. The club offi cials threaten tocu down the Western Union poles in front of their property, and a merry war. in which, the public will be the chief. sufferer, will likely ensue. Summary. First race.

He Wins the St. Louis Browing Association Stakes Easily. St. LOUIS, June 20.— Although there was a stake event on the card at the fairgrounds today, the racing was of a low order. Ihe majority of the events were for beaten horses, and an undesir able lot of ____ea enough fought for the money. The St. Louis Brewing Asso ciation stakes, with $1,000 added, mile and a sixteenth, was the feature. Only three horses faced the flag, and St. Joe had a cake walk. Under a double pull, he laid at Verge dOrs shoulders until they entered the stretch; then Isaac Murphy gave him his head, and he can tered in and won easily. It was worth $1,100 to the winner.

She Is Declared Innocent of Murder by a Jury of Twelve. The Verdict Greeted With a Tremendous Cheering by the Audience. No Attempt Made by the Judges to Check the Demonstration. The Accused Dissolves in Tears When She Hears the Decision. New Bedfohd. Mass., June 20.— Lizzie Borden was today declared by' the jury to be not guilty of the charge of murdering her father and step mother, and tonight is a free woman, and will sleep outside of prison walls tor the first time in months. It was just 4:30 o'clock when the spectators, who had kept their seats patiently during the retirement' of the jury, noticed a movement indicating their return. A moment later the twelve men filed into their seats and were polled. Miss Borden was asKed to stand up, and the foreman was asked to return the ver dic.whichhe announced— "Not guilty." Then all the dignity and decorum of the court room vanished. A cheer went up which might have been heard half a mile away through the open windows, and there was no attempt to check it. The stately justices looked straight ahead at the bare walls during the tremendons ex citement, which lasted fully a minute. -Miss Borden's head went down upon the rail in front of her, and tears came where they had refused to come for many a long day as . She Heard the Sweetest Words ever poured Into her willing ears. Mr. Jennings was almost crying, and his voice broke as he put his hand out to Mr. Adams, who sat next to him, and said "Thank God," while Mr. Adams returned the pressure of the hand and seemed incapable of speech. Gov. Robinson turned to the rapidly dissolving jury as they filed out of their seats and gleamed on them with a fatherly interest in his kindly eye, and stood up as Mr. Knowlton and Mr. Moody came over to shake hands with the counsel for the defense. As soon as possible the room was cleared, although it was a hard task, since everybody wanted to shake hands with Miss Borden. When the spec tators had finally gone she. was taken to. the room of the justices and allowed to recover her composure with only the eyes of friends upon her and the caress of devoted admirers. At the' expiration of .au hour she was placed in a carriage and driven to the station, where she took the train for Fall River, her home no longer, proba bly, but still the only objective point for the immediate present. The Opening-. There was less of a jam outside the court house this morning, although at the opening of court there were as many people in the room as at any time dur ing the session. Miss Bordon entered the room at 8:55 and Gov. Robinson took a seat beside her, and the two. en gaged In conversation uutil court opened at 9 o'clock. The jury was polled, and the district attorney picked up the thread of his argument where he dropped it last night. . Mr. . Knowlton finished his argument at noon and court adjourned until 1:45 p. m. The court came In promptly at 1:45, every seat in the room being occupied, as usual. The chief justice then" ad dressed Miss Borden by name, telling her that she now had a voice ana could say to the jury what she chose to say. She arose, somewhat agitated, and said to the jury: ... H i alii _____ .cent, but I will leave my case in your lianas and in the hands of my counsel." Judge <vey then charged the jury. He read his charge rapidly, and among other things embodied therein was the caution to take a decision only upon the law and the evidence given. The court defined the degrees of murder, and said the degree is to be determined by the 5 jury. • .■'g_^_________a^BK__i_^_____Mp__B "The government claim that you ought to find that; those murders were deliberately -Meditated. In ' consid ering the c* do cc, you . roust needs have several legal principles in your mind. One is that of the Presumption or Innocence-, and this presumption is to be considered In the light of evidence, and it is a principle I'ounaed upon that beneficient law which says every man is innocent until he is proven guilty. The character and previous life of the defendant must always be taken into consideration, and I understand the government allows that there is nothing in defendant's past life, previous to arrest, to be doubted. Recall the case, the court said; put one part with another and see whether you can conceive at this time : this defendant had toward tier steo mother a feeling that could be properly called hatred. If this conception is not warranted by the evidence, : then it should not have weight in your mind. The goverment claims those acts come under the head of murder in the first degree. The law claims that, in order to prove this, everything : claimed must be proven beyond a reasonable doubt." Continuing, it was stated that the ! government presents this case on cir- ! cumstantial evidence. It the evidence i left the jury in reasonable doubt as -to ' whether she was where her father was j when he was murdered, then the doubt would be fatal to the gov ernment's case. It was understood by the court that the government claimed that an essential fact was embraced in the note matter; that she had made statements which she knew were false when she was making them,;. There are three grounds to base this on. First, the man who wrote it; second, the man who brought it has not been found, and, third, there was no note. : What Motive Hud Defendant to invent a story like this? asked the court. Would not it have been more natural for her to say simply that her j stepmother had gone out to make a i call? _ Was it a natural thiug for her to say, to invent, that what any time might be brought against her? It is said no letter was found. But contemplate the possibility of there being another assassin. Might it not be a part of the scheme of the as sassin? Might be not have come on her when the note .was there at hand? Might he not have had reason to remove it as one of the links? In circumstantial evidence unless every link hold good the chain is worthless. (Here the court gave several illustrations of his* meaning). The jury was asked to; bear in mind the supposed facts that the defendant had no blood on her clothes when seen first, and there was nothing to connect her with the murder | so far as outward appearances went?- In order to warrant conviction it was' not incumbent on the government to show that she alone had the oppor- j tunity. Was the defendant in the house .when these people were killed. Are the views of the experts correct? Was' this defendant capable of doing this work? The government,'' claims that she was not in the barn at the time she said she was, and makes other charges which the jury must carefully-, weigh for their actual weight. The jury' was again cautioned against receiving statements for facts. - Calling attention to medical experts, the court seduied inclined to place small reliance upon tnem as a general thing and the jury was given to under stand that it must give to Expert Testimony just as much weight as they thought it ought to receive. The .jury was cau tioned against noticing in any way the fact that defendant did not take the stand. The court said the' burden __or proof is on ; the government, and the defendant is not obliged to shoulder any of it. The jury was not to deal with the evidence in a ' captious spirit. If not legally guilty, | you are to say so. The jury was asked ; to think over carefully whether a per son contemplating crime would be like ly to tell a friend of it, or predict it •in any way the -very day beforehand." In. the matter of the dress ; the court asked the jury to ; say whether they could extract from all the descriptions of the dress enough by which to identify it. The quarrel "story the court disposed of in short order, and, of course, left it with the jury, to say whether it was reasonable to say that such persons who were interested in getting Mrs.' Keagau's; story became so without having first ascertained the truth of the matter. The court said the ' jury will lift the case above the level j of passion into the clear lines of truth and reason. ***... ...*. At the conclusion of the charge, the j attorneys consulted a few moments. | The jury was allowed to retire, and I counsel agreed upon what exhibits were j to be put into the case, after which they were brought in again, the oath admin istered by the clerk of the court and j the jvry took the ■cage. -_ Poisoned by Underbrush.

The Six Cars Were Crowded -. v With Men, .Women and .;. .'..''. -S'-.i Children. • ■ < . _■■'-• New York, June 20,— A train on the Long Island railroad, upon whioh there were about 1,000 persons returning from , the Sheepshead Bay races, was derailed this evening in a tunnel a short distance from Parksville. L. I. Two persons were killed outright, two died soon after being removed to the hospital, and about 100 were injured, many so se riously that they will not recover. j Those killed outright at the time of the accident were:. Patrick Daly, a court officer of the Third district courr, New York city; U.S. Pringle, whose residence, accord ing to card in his pocket, is New York; — ■ Quinby, Utica, N. V., right leg cut off; unknown man about thirty years old, dark mustache and dark, dressed in ! dark clothes. The following were re moved to the Seney hospital, Brooklyn, and died soon afterwards: Henry Spink, marshal at Jefferson Market police court. New York- city; Robert Cudley, a policeman. New York; J. McGunnigle, Fritz D. Johnson and John Simlay. j Among the injured are an unknown man, who is* conscious and suffering from the shock and. internal injuries, and Andrew Bartholomew, who had Ids left leg cut off, and was taken to' Seney hospital, Brooklyn. The phvsiciaus do not bin k Bartholomew will recover. Many. the injused were taken in pri vate conveyances or by their frieuds to New-York hospitals or to their homes. The Accident happened upon what is known as the Bay Ridge division of the Manhattan railroad, and about half a mile from the little town of -Paikville, which is at the junction of the roads running to Coney Island and Manhattan Beach and Sheepshead Bay. The Bay Ridge division, alter leaving the town Of ; Parkville, passes under, a viaduct of the Coney Island boulevard. The fatal train reached this point of the road at 6 o'clock. It had .eft Sheepshead Bay race track at 5 :45. The crowd aboard were meu, women and children who had been to witness the Suburban. The train consisted of twelve cars, [ the - front and rear cars being closed and the remainder open. Every seat was taken, and men stood in the aisles of the closed cars and shoul der to shoulder upon the platforms running along the sides of the open cars, it was a good-natured crowd, most of the passengers said afterward; those who. had backed the winning -horses were jubilant over their suc cesses, while those who had lost were making merry with others who were in the same plight. There was badinage, and with the exchange be tween the broker and the tout who had I given him an unsuccessful tip, between i the residents of Cherry Hill and the | wealthy residents of: Murray Hill, ■ or between the drummer and his subur ban customer, to whom he was showing the beauties of New York life. i"-;: Everybody Seemed -Herfy, raid the uppermost thought perhaps of '.fie whole train was to get back to New '_' ork as quickly as possible. Upon the boulevard overlooking a long line of tillyhos and fancy turn-outs was mov ing on toward the city. The people aboard the train "answered the salutes and waving of handkerchiefs from the occupants of .the carriages as it drew hear the tunnel. _-&&■ ' - The train, when was going at full speed, suddenly i aye a jeik ai d jolt, and .the expressions of pleasure were j instantly turned to' feelings of terror and dismay.. The engine and the . first , two cars ran along upon the track, dragging behind them the other-cars of' the train, ? bumping, . and roll ing along the ties .up to the v&ryj-' mouth if the tunnel. Tfieh the engine and the. two cars that remained on the track broke loose from the others, .and : were carried by their .-, ii ii i iiiiiiHiiiMiHimiiiiiihiiiiiiiMiiwi' niirmimir . own speed clear through the tunnel and twenty- five feet beyond. The other part of the train pulled apart, the first dragging itself half way through the tunnel. No one knew what had hap pened, so quickly had the . fatal accident occurred. People jumped from the train and fell upon the embank ment, to be bruised and cut by the cars. Others were carried along udou the train, their bodies rubbed and bruised upon the rocks of the tunnel and the stones of the embankment. There were *-^.*_._. .• Shriek* of Pain. Women fainted and men became panic stricken, and trampled them and the children under their feet in their mad flight for safety. When the train finally stopped the cooler heads immediately began to render assistance to the wounded, . who lay along the track. Court Officer Daly was found beside the track, the lower part of ' his body frightfully crushed. A few feet from him. was. found Mr. Pringle. He was still alive, and he was carried up to the top of the embankment and laid upon the grass. The others carried up Rob ert Cudley and Henry Spink. A phy sician who was upon the train hurried to' these two men, and after a very su perficial examination pronounced both of their injuries fatal. He did what he could for them, and they were trans ferred to a hospital. Policemen who had arrived imme diately sent orders to Brooklyn hos pitals for ambulances, which soon began to arrive, in the meantime the wounded had been gathered up and stretched out upon the grass on the embankment. The physicians that were arriving attended to their wounds as best they could. One hundred persons, il is said, found upon this green - plot a temporary hospital. The people who. in their carriages, had looked down upon this terrible scene, stopped and also . Offered Their Auultttance. Some of these found upon the grass plot injured frieuds. They put them into their vehicles and took them to their homes or to hospitals. Others cared for persons unknown to them, either by notifying the injured ones' friends, or taking them Into their own vehicles and conveying them Away for treatment. The hospital am bulances arrived and into them the wounded wero crowded. Andrew Bar tholomew, of Seeley Creek, N. V., im mediately upon his arrival at the hospi tal, had his left leg amputated aud tbe crushed right one dressed. The cause of the accident and who is to blame for it are matters which are yet to be Investigated. The train was without doubt derailed by a misplaced switch— it stood there open after the accident in mute evidence. Whether it had been opened by the switch man or whether through long use had become unsafe and was jolted open by tin- passing train is not deflnituly known. As the first two cars remained on the track, it is declared by some that the switch was shut when these passed over, but was jolted loose and allowed the otl_er part of the train to be de railed. The engineer of the train was John Bachner. The • conductor was George Ormsby. Neither Would Give Any Statement - as to how the accident happened. Ormsby said that he was collecting tickets at the time, and had just warned the people to get on the inside ot the cars. It was the persons who were on the - platforms on the right side of the cars. Those upon the left sides and who remained in the cars were not among the seriously injured. W. 11. Blood, general superintendent of the road, was at the race track this afternoon, assisting in loading the cars. As soon as he heard of the accident he hurried to the scene immediately. When spoken to regarding it tonight he said he was not in a position yet to make a statement. Thirty feet west of the tunnel on the north side of the tiack is a tower in which' a switch man is stationed whose duty it is to operate the switches on the rails that run through the tunnel. It was in charge of Towerman McGarry. It was at one time reported that he was asleep at the time of the accident, and had left the switch 'open. This, how ever, was positively denied by McGarry himself, Mr. Blood and sev eral trainmen who said they saw him a the time. An inquest will be held to morrow forenoon, probably in Brook lyn. McGarry. the lowerman, is in the custody of the coroner, and all- the trainmen have been ordered to appear at the inquest. At midnight the track was only. partly cleared. An unknown man was found under the fourth car of the train. He was dead when found. A card in his pocket bore the name "W. D. Hutchinson." '..' •** Hawkeye Republican Convention.

Dxjlxjtit, Minn., June 20.— Reports from the Mesaba range today are that the work of relief is being prosecuted satisfactorily. The relief committee in Duluth Is well organized, and an abundance of money and food Is being offered. The reports from Mountain iron are. not encouraging. Nearly the whole population is still engaged in fighting the lire, and the danger is not yet over. Yesterday a number of Poles and Hungarians refused to assist in the work. The marshal of the town com pelled them to join the others at the point of a revolver, and by the use of the same argument kept them nt work. Late reports show that the first story of the destruction by forest fires on thu Mesaba range was exaggerated, in that a tew more buildings are standing in tho several unfortunate towns than at lirst claimed. But the property loss will probably figure up a greater total than any of the estimates now made. At Virginia there are 30 houses stand ing, instead of 10; Merritt has 10 build ings remaining, and at Biwabik only a few buildings were destroyed. As stated in these dispatches yester day. Mountain iron lost six buildings; At Virginia there is the gr<_H__st Buffer ing, and the most urgent need of help; and on the whole range about 3,500 peo ple are for the time dependent upon charity as a result of the lire. The total loss is placed at $1,500,000, and the insurance at $300,000. It is not thought tnat any lives are lost on the range, but it will be several days before any positive statement on this point can be made. This evening at 8:30 it began raining in this city, and the storm probably ex tends to the Mesaba range, where moisturejs sorely needed to put out the forest fifes. Later reports from the Mesaba Indicate that the worst is over, though lawlessness prevails to a Brent extent. About a dozen deputy sheriffs were sunt up this morning to preserve order and protect the people from thieves and robbers. Another relief train will go up in the morning. About (5,000 has already been subscribed. A QUEER DREAM Results in the Finding of a Hotly " at Winona. Special to the Globe.
