Russia and France Trving to Draw
up Terms of Alliance.
By Cabie
London, Aug. 1st The St.
Petersburg correspondent of the
Times claims to have learned, on
high authority, that Admiral Ger
vais brought with him to Russia the
draft of a treaty of alliance, arrived
at during the consultations between
he Russian Minister in. -Paris,
Mohrnheim, and the French cabi
net. The draft thus nrenared was
to be submitted to consideration and
elaboration at the Russian foreign
office and when the negotiations
were concluded the document was
to be signed by the Russian Minis
ters and the matter left in embryo
until it should be opportune for the
Czar to sign the treaty. Admiral
Gervais spent the morning, in close
consultation with the Minister of
foreign affairs, and Vannovski, the
Minister of war and the chief o
the Admiralty. L

Puliifer't Great Sxoayback Closes in
Onee or. Twice, But is Left at

By The United Press.
Morris Park, N. Y., Aug.l.
Michael Dwyer's grand horse, Long-
street, by Longfellow Semper
Idem, won the match race to-day
and with it $12,000 for his owner,
defeating David T. Pulsifer's great
race horse, Tenny.
The weather ws cool and pleas
ant and the track in first class shape
for the race. There were nearly
20,000 persons at the track when
the bugle sounded for the match
race at 4:20 p. m.
Tenny was the first to appear for
his warming up gallop and he pleai-
ed the critics immensely. Not so
with Longstreet. He sulked at the
upper turn, and then there was a
great rush into the betting ring to
back Tenny.
mi . i k
men tne race began. Aiur one
break away they were sent ayay
with Longstreet nearly a length in
front. The pair ran in this order
close together to the quarter, both
running under a pull. Longstreet
held his lead to the top of the hill,
when "Pike" Barnes let Tenny out
and the great swayback rapidly clos
ed on the leader. The pair ran
head and head for a few
strides when Hamilton went
to work on Longstreet and
opened up a gap of three lengths,
which he held to the mile post.
Then Tenny moved up again and
Hamilton went to the whip. Long
street began to move away under
the lash when Barnes drew his
whip, and once more Tenny gained
on Longstreet. But Hamilton
kept steadily at work on Long-
street and at the last furlong post
had Tenny beaten and passed under
the wire a winner by six lengths.

Through the columns of the
Chronicle 1 desire to thank the
people cf Raleigh for their great
kindness and encouragement to me
in my work. I wish that each and
every one may feel that I am grate
ful to him personally.
I came scarcely daring to look
the future in the face, rather weigh
ed down with the thougH of my re
sponsibility. Raleigh has lifted me a round
higher toward the accomplishment
of my object. She has inspired me
with courage and energy to press
on to the end,
And may God bless the kind
hearts of those who are prompted
by a generous and noble impulse to
help a struggling fellow-creature, is
the prayer of one who believes that
she will be heard by the Dispenser
of ;U goodness.
Respectfully,
