Sax FAK<isro, July 3. —The
official returns have been received
Ironi till except seven counties be
sides San Francisco, in which the
official canvass is not yet. complete.
The counties yet to hear from will
give non-partisan majorities. The
result ol’ the count shows undoubt
edly that the non-partisan elected all
their 32 delegates at large, and prob
ably ">t county delegates. It is
thought they may lose one of that
number. The Ivearneyitc-s elect 51,
and possibly .>2 county delegates, the
Republicans 8, the Democrats 7. The
non-partisans will thus have a major
ity of 17 in the convention, or 20
over all others. It must also be re
membered that the Republicans and
Democrats elected represent the con
servative element. It is also true
that a number of delegates from the
interior on the working-man’s ticket
arc not in sympathy with what is
known as Kearneyism. and the same
may be said of the city delegation.
The revolutionary element will form
only a small minority in tire constitu
tional convention.

THE 1.01 ISVII.I.i; HACKS.
Loitsvju.k, July 4.—At 10 o’clock
this morning the streets were well
nigh impassible, the building's were
handsomely decorated, and unparal
leled interest was I’d: in the great
•event of the day.
The first race wa> a dash of a mile
and three-quarters, and was won by
Dank, heatingllarkawuy easily : time
1:1k!. The second race \* as a sweep
stakes for two-year-oidr-. and was
won by Goodnight, with Keaton
'ocoud. and Charlemagne third ; time,
I:2h.
When the drum tapped for the
great four mile race to day Ten
Brocck and Mol lie McCarthy went
by the string like twin bullets. Ten
Broeck had the outside of the track,
and the mare, being on the inside, ran
t o the front from the start. At t lie first
quarter they were side by side and
going gallantlv on to victory. The
half mile did not change the position,
and as they moved onward the thirty
thousand spectators were held in per
fect silence. Between the half and
three-quarters the mare got her nose
ahead, and a great cheer went up, and
then as they came past the string and
she again appeared in the front anoth
er cheer was heard. The mare was
moving easy, but Ten Brooch was
being driven hard.
In t-he second mile -Mollie seemed
to be moving with such ease, and
Ten Broeck labored so hard, that the
Kentuckians wavered by thousands,
and the certainty of California’s win
ning produced a dead silence. At
the half post in tbe |secoml mile
'Walker urged Ten .Broeck quite
had, and Ilowson permitted him to
come up side by side. A Kentucky
■veil, which was heard tor miles, rent
the air. So they tan past the three
quarters, and coming into the stretch
Mollie McCarthy brushed! ahead
agaiu, passing the grand stand a halt
length in the lead.
“ She will win sure,” was heard in
all directions, and more confident
grew the cry as her easy' movment
continued, the horse still driving.—
She passed the quarter in the third
mile still leading, but the horse hung
on to her close, and made a pace so
murderous that many’knew that his
bottom would have an effect ulti
mately. At the three-eighth pole of
the third mile McCarthy let up in
her running, Ten Broeck taking the
track his passing her at the very mo
ment andfriends were giving him up.
lie increased rapidly the distance
separating them. The mare’s break
down was heard the field over, but
she ran on. Walker pulling the
horse slightly w as ahead on the third
mile ten lengths, and though her de
feat was now certain, few realized
how far and Low easy Ten Brocck
would win. He little more than gal
loped the remaining mile, the Queen
ot California being at the three-quar
ter pole when the great “ Kentucky
crack” distanced her. Time was
8:11*4, as follows : First mile, 1:49$ ;
second mile, 3:45 J : third mile, 5:53 :
fourth mile, B:HQ-more than a min
ute slower than his best record. Both
horses were well used up, the heat
being intense. There was no heavy
betting, the Californians and eastern
people who backed tbe mare being
content with small investments of
three to five. Thirty thousand peo
ple or more were present.
