Atlanta Constitution, The (Newspaper) - August 29, 1890, Atlanta, Georgia T THE CONSTITUT VOL. XXII. ATLANTA, GA., FRIDAY MORNING, AUGUST 29, PRICE FIVE CENTS. DISGRACEFUL SCENES WHICH CBABACTESTZE TUX! ACTS OS" XBJS REPUBLICANS. ANOTHER DAY 'OF SENSATIONS. 3Even the Republican Papers Score Cannon for Hia Difijyracefful Laugnage and Reed for Ignoring It. WASHINGTON, August Tho wild scenes of yesterday in the house found an echo today. The language, however, "was not so vulgar, and words instead of fiats, used. Of course, the lie was passed, but that 13 nothing these dayssiucethe republicans Jiave commenced fighting among themselves. The fight opened early. The compound lard "bill was rushed through tl'e first thing, Tom Keed counting a quorum before the southern democrats could escape from the hall, although they rushed out in great haste. Then Mr. of Illinois, a demrcrat, arose to a question of personal privilege, and ecorcd Blackguard Joe Cannon for placing his name on the "black list." Speaker Reed attempted to cut Mr. Williams off, when Joe Cannon cried out: "Let him go on, ho can't hurt aiijbody." Mr Williams replied: "No; the gentleman Srorn Illinois can't be hurt, after the proceed- ings of yesterday." The democrats laughed. Cannon jumped to his feet in a rage, and commenced to tell about the report of his remarks in the Kecord, saying they were literal, and the could judge of them. Then he yelled. "I am only afraid of the lies told out of this -chambor." Mr. Enloe, who knew, as every one else did. that Mr. Cannon's remarks had been toned down m the Record, started to deny the state- ment, but Speaker Keed would not allow him to talk. There were cries for Cannon's words to be taken down where he referred to but tyrant Tom Reed would not hear to it. At this there was a great uproar. Members shouted from all over the house at the speaker, tut he continued to pound his desk and listen to no one. Mr McClammy, of North Carolina, rushed in front and yelled out, loud enough to be hoard above the roar, that he wanted to introduce a resolution calling upon "SVana- maker to exclude the Congressional Kecord irom the mails on account of its being an in- decent, vulgar and immoral publication which to use his expression, "lay Kreutzer Sonata in tbe shade." But Heed would hear no one. He pounded and until the voices of members had worn out and order restored. Then Billy Mason took the floor to make some explanations about his fight against tbe lard bill. He said under Heed's rules he had no opportunity to discuss the bill. He had been a party to making them, aa a good repub- lican he would stand by them, but it was very 2iard to take his own medicine. However, he had done it, and he has no apologies to make. Mr. Funston, of Kansas, another republican, denied that Mr. Mason had not been given a hearing on the bill. Mr. Mason reaffirmed his statement. Reed tried to -cut Funston off, the Kansau allowed his angry passions to rise and, while Reed wag pounding his desk and Mason was talking, Funston, raising his foghorn voice, yelled out above the din; When Mr. Mason says he was not given a tearing he utters a falsehood." Immediately there was a wild and in- describable scene. Somebody yelledf "Hit him but the men, were too far apart to strike. Mr. Cheadle, oE Indiana, demanded that the words be takon down. Keed, to protect his pirates, re- fused to hear, but Mr. Enloe, of Tennessee, insisted. Quiet was restored again and the vords were taken town. 1 Reed hurried a page off to Mason, and the Illinois man arose to say, "I "know the gentle- jnan fiom Kansas didn't mean to say that; aiow did Funston nodded. know he continued Mason, "and I forgive him now its all ovor." But the democrats wouldn't have it that "way The words were read out by the clerk, aud Mr. Funston arose and said he bad only said Mr. Mason had told a falsehood, pro- vided he made a certain statement. "Mr. Mason says he did not make it, and I Withdraw my remarks." This created laughter and ended the matter. The 3f orthern Papers Talk Out- Tom Reed and Cannon are scored unmerci- fully by all the northern papers this morning. They are unanimous in denouncing Cannon as a dirty blackguard, and call upon him to get -out of congress, Reed is censured as a and equally a blackguard for allow- ing the scenes of yesterday. The gentlemen of both parties are disgusted that tho dignity of the house should have been to that of a grog shop. Cannon is being shunned and avoided by the respectable ele- ment of the house. One man even refused to .shake his hand this morning, saying he did .not to know a man who, by his coarse and filthy vulgarity, had degraded the house and overy member thereof. Georgia's Population. The census office today completed a postal card estimate of the population of Georgia. figures are an increase of abont over the census of 1880. 1 Thus if, under the reapportionxnent of in the house, the population is increased to to a congressman Georgia -will hold her own, and if it is not increased above to a representative Georgia will gain one. However, as it is likely to be in- creased to Georgia will simply hold her own with to spare. Each congressman aiow only represent people. Georgia Personals. Mr. W. 3. Campbell, ol THE CoNSTirtmotf, spent today here. He has madeathree weeks' business trip east buying new material fop CoNSTlTunoK job office. Mr. and Mrs. 3. K. Barton, of Cedaitown, are here. Mr. Barton says Cedartown is the coming place of Georgia. He thinks if Dr. Felton makes the race for congress it will he the liveliest the seventh has ever had and doubts if Everett can carry Polk.

RICHMOND, Va., August is believed in democratic legislative circles that the legislature will be convened in extra session probably oarly in January next. The most important subjects to be consid- ered at the extra session be the roappor- tionment of the state for members of congress, necessitated by the increased representation to vthich Virginia will be entitled, and the debt scheme, expected to be submitted by the cred- itors. The now census will givo this state one addi- tional representative, and the legislature will have to malte a. new district for this extra member. This may necessitate a chtmge in several, if not nearly all, of tho districts, as at present arranged. The last ap- portionment for congressmen was made by the democratic legislature of 1SS3-4. In 1881-2 Mahone was prevented from gerry- mandering: the state by the famous revolt of the Kewberry "big four" senators. The result was that the redistricting fell to the lot of the democrats who secured control of the next legislature. That party made no attempt to gerrymander, but arraying the districts as fairly as has over been done and at present the republicans have two second and which the voters of that party a re overwhelmingly dominant. The first distuct is also repub- lican, possibly bya small vote. In a rearrange- ment of the districts the san.e ratio of com- parative strength between the two parties will doubtless be preserved. Nebraska Prohibition is to. LINCOLN, Neb., August state pro- hibition convention concluded its labors hore today. Dr. B. 3J. Paine, of Lincoln, was nomi- nated for governor by acclamation. George "Woodby, a colored man, was unanimously chosen for lieutenant governor; Charles Watts, for secretary of state; A. Fitch, Jr7, for auditor; H. W. Hardy, for state treasurer; Judge F. P. "Wigton, for attorney general; C. Clesou, for commissioner, and Mrs. Mary E. Morgan, for state superintendent of schools. South Dakota MITCHELL, S. D., August repub- licans renominated Congressman Pickler and substituted, John Gamble, of Yankton, for Congressman Gifford. Governor Mellette was also renominated by acclamation. Congressional Dominations. The democratic congressional convention in the ninth North Carolina district last night nominated W. T. Crawford. P. J. Lester was yesterday nominated to con- rress by the democrats of the fifth Virginia dis- trict. He had no opposition. Paul C. Edmunds was yesterday renominated by the democrats of the sixth Virginia congressional district. ____________ ME UAL) A BAD BCV? Whose Actions Drove the Old Man to Suicide. MONTGOMERY, Ala., August A Troy, Ala., special to The Evening Journal says that a white carpenter, named "W. K. Mayson, was found dead on a lumber pile early this morning. The dead man had off his shoes, which were lying near him, and by ais side was a two-ounce bottle, one-third full of laudanum. The deceased had been on a spree for several days, and during the time iold some of those with whom he talked .that ao was In trouble, and intended to Mil him- self. A letter in his pocket showed that he has a son who is in the employ of the cola, Fla., gas company, and who is a de- faulter to that and the company showed considerable leniency to the young man, allowing him to make good his deficit ay paying monthly installments. He did not make payments promptly, and the 'company wrote to his lather about the matter. It is supposed this trouble caused the suicide. A POLICEMAN'S FIND.

FOUGHT TO THE DEATH. 1H.OOOY IN ovaa, WITH REVOLVER AND BOWIE KNIFE Mark Turner mid Steve Two ettlG tmOIdToud In the Kentticlcy Style. KTiDDLESBOBOUGH, Ky.j August [Spe- cial.j-'-A desperate duel between Mark Turner and Steve "Wannick last night resulted hrthe death of "Wannick and thei fatal -wounding ot Turner. The two men fought like demons for fifteen minutes, Turner using a revolver and "Wannick a bowie knife. A hundred men witnessed the battle, but all were powerless to interfere. HAD KILLED SEVEN MEN, Turner was one in tho gang of Turners who have raised so much "cain" in Bell county during the last few years. He ia charged with; having killed seven men in his lifetime. He fought tbe Hatfields for a year. Tho feuds between the warring factions became so great and so many were killed that about all of each family were wiped from the face of the earth. Since the railroad went into the wild region the men have become more settled. HOW THE TOWN MADE FBIENDS. The Middlesborough authorities have won the friendship of all desperadoes by making one or two leaders of the various factious po- lice officers in tbat city. Save an occasional trouble once or twice last year, matters have been peaceful. Turner has been conducting a saloon in Middlesborough. Just what caused the affair between him and "VVannick is not known definitely here, but it is said to have been the outgrowth of an old feud. Both men were as bloody as butchered hogs when the fight ceased, and that did not take place until both were on the ground unable to rise. HE Ol'EXED KEGISTEKED BETTERS And Chased Him to New Or- leans and Captured Him. CHARLOTTE, N. C., August [Special.] Seated in one of the' easy chairs in the Cen- tral hotel lobby, apparently deeply engrossed in reading a newspaper, was a young man of uncommonly attractive appearance. His face was a remarkably handsome one, and he was stylishly attired in a neat-fitting suit of black. He was such a personaffe as one would stop to take a second glance at. One would be very likely to mentally observe, "a good looking and pass on. Your correspondent, however, had seen the handsome man before, and also observed some- thing that was not noticed by others. Oa either side of tho handsome young man strangers. The strangers were detectives, andN the young man who was so calmly reading a paper was a postoflice thief and their prisoner. His name was John Kennedy, and he was in charge of Detectives S. Turner and J. E. Bachlcn, of Now Orleans. Kennoday was employed in the postoffice at "VVilmingson as reg.stry clerk. About four -weeks ago he suddenly disappeared, and a shortage of was found in his accounts. Tho detectives captured him in New Orleans, where he was going under the name of Vane. The detectives arrived in Charlotte on tlie Air-Line train this morning, and left at 12 o'clock on the Carolina Central for Wilmington. Kenneday was considered a moral young man, and his downfall was a great shock to the people of "SVilmiiigton. He comes of a good family, for whom great sympathy is expressed, A PUZZLING QUESTION.

Who Had the Valise Found Near tho Mur- dered Man Va., August The aentational murder reported from the Catoosa mines by last night's dispatches, has cieated considetable discussion along tbe line. The report as it is lacks is .n its minor details, but the general points were correct and can be substatiated. The most puzzling question propounded is to whom does the valise belong. Several weeks ago a Mr. Turner, of Graysville, died very suddenly. lying in state bis valise was stolen from his room, an4 his friends have on the lookout ei er since, but up to the time tho telegram appeared in THE CONSTI- TUTION nothing definite could be found of its whereabouts. It now seems that the fellow who murdered tho other man was in possession of the stolen valise. Today Mr. Vaughan, of -he Graysville manufacturing company, tele- graphed your Riuggold correspondent for full particulars. The matter will be fully investi- gated and tho result will be furnished your ?aper as soon as learned. It now seems that ;he man who commited the murder was in possession of Turner's, valise, the deceased jookkeeper.________________ A BIG FOKGERT, iiclt Mr. Meyers and His Career at BIRMINGHAM, Ala., August Today tbe Alabama National Bank received :rom a bank in St. Paul a check for to which the name of J. P. Mudd, president of the Central Savings Bank, of this city, had seen forged. The check was payable to J. Meyers, who had cashed it at the St. Paul bank. The bank there was wired that the check was a forgery, and later a telegram was re- ceived from a Pinfcefton detective asking if tfeyer was wanted in this city. Meyers came hero from Cincinnati last Feb- ruary and announced that he represented the stockholders of the Birmingham Boiling Mill Company and had been sent to settle a strike which was on at that time. The strike waa settled without him and then he engaged n several little transactions which gave him he reputation of being a very slick citizen Recently he borrowed some money from lere and leaving a large unpaid board bill at a leading hotel left ttie city. His father is said to be a wealthy and prominent citizen of Cincinnati, and if he is prosecuted for the torgery'at St. Paul no effort will be made to jring him back here. _____ MIDNIGHT. two Murderers Executed, in the Ohio Penitentiary.

C., August tfucb, excitement is manifested over the TO- cent suit that has been entered by the county officers of Cabarrus for against The >atly Standard, of Concord, for libel. Some- itung of a sensational character is tatraghMo jo behind this action. [BRINGS, Ala., j Congressman Oatea -was renominated here to- day by acclamation. This district, which Js composed of the conn iestif Barbour, Henry, Dale, Geneva, Coffee Eussell, Lee and Bullock, is one of the fore most in the state in wealth and intelligence. The present representative, Colonel William C. Oates, is now serving his fifth term. Six months ago no man, nor set of men, could have defeated him. He was popular with all classes, and was the idol of the old soldiera No murmur of opposition was heard, and it was almost a settled conclusion that the gal- lant colonel could stay in congress as long as he wished.' So intimately was he connected and so perfectly in unison and harmony was he thought to be with the most of the citizens of the district that the Farmers' Alliance sought early to enlist his services in their behalf. This organization has quite a large membership in this section of Alabama, and could easily do anything it wanted to, were its members to act together in harmony. This order, through Captain James Hobdy, of Barbour county, a prominent al- Baneeman and farmer, addressed a letter to Colonel Oates, seeking his influence in behall of the subtreasury bill. This was-several monthsago. Colonel Oates replied, and his letter was widely published. He was the first congressman who, at the re- quest of a constituent, expressed views bit- terly antagonistic to the subtreasury bill. This Ifttter roused the ire of a good many hitherto Oates men. Afterwards came tlie most re- markable gubernatorial campaign ever seen in Alabama, This campaign only served to con- centrate the opposition to Colonel Oates. Still, everyone conceded his re-election, or, rather, his renomination, which amounts to the same thing as an election in this state. The various counties which compose this dis- trict, with one exception, elected their dele- gates to the congressional convention at the same time the delegates to the state conven- tion were elected. Henry, Dale and 28 votes- instructed for Oates; while Barbour, Russell, Bullock and 34 voted down resolutions of instruction for Oates or took no action in tbe matter. county, with its seven delegates, was the only county left to act. Great interest was manifested in its action, and when its delegation was instructed for Oates his friends thought his election sure, inasmuch sa he bad secured 35 instrurted votes out of the 69, the whole number of dele- gates to tbe convention. The opposition, though sorely discomfited, still remained in the field. Every effort was made at a combination, [coking to the defeat of Colonel Oates. So energetic and determined was this op- position that hia friends could be certain, -of nothing until the convention met today. THE OPPOSITION'S-PLAN. The leaders of the opposition wore all men of political experience, and seemed confident of their methods. Although outnumbered in the convention, they claimed that a goodly number, perhaps even a majority, of tbe-in- structed delegates were with them upon the subtroasury, and they relied on the support of such delegates to carry their point. Some of the extreme anti-Oates men were in favor of ignoring instructions entirely, and nominating some one supposed to represent the wishes of a majority of the delegates. They claimed that since the election of some of the instructed delegations new issues had arisen, and that had these issues been agitated at such elections, delegations opposed to Oatesjwould have been secured; hence they claimed tbat the instructions are void and of no effect. The more conservative of tho opposition had another plan. They admit Jhat new issues have arisen, but at the same time they recog- nize as final the instructions of tho counties. Their plan was to give Colonel Oates the nomination, but at the same time to hamper him in such a manner that he woxild have to resign in order to preserve his honor. They had two plans. One was to pass resolutions reciting the causes which led to a majority of the delegates being sent instructed for Oates, and defining the new issues that have arisen, and saying to the colonel that while he re- ceives the nomination in deference to county instructions, yet it was the wish of the major- ity of the convention that he de- cline said nomination. The other plan was to pass resolutions in favor of the subtreasury bill, and to base the nomination of a candidate on adherence to the principles involved therein. In either case it was thought Colonel -OateS" would re- fuse the nomination. The opposition had combined upon no one to act as standard bearer. The favorite of the alliance contingent was Judge Alston, of Barbour, a prominent alliance man. Henry D. Clayton, of another possibility. NO OPPOSITION. At the last moment, however, the opposi- tion was forced to concede that they had no chance of success. The convention waa called to order by A. H. Alston, chairman of the executive committee. J. F. Tate, a prominent allianceman, was made chairman. After the usual committees had been appointed, Colonel Oates was re- nominated by acclamation. This was unex- pected and unwished for by some. As reported previously, there was a strong current of op- position, to Oates, and "had there been any chance to have defeated him it would have been seized upon, but after carefully consider- ing the situation it was decided not to offer any opposition to him this time, but to allow him to return to the fifty-second congress and give him the grand bounce two yeats hence, if they feel inclined. That this is the intention of the leaders of the'Opposition there-is no doubt. Colonel Oatea was present during a portion of the proceedings of the convention, and made a lengthy speech, reviewed hia political least, thatportion of which Macune, of alliance fame, has published. He was quite hitter to Macune, and several times in bia speech denounced him as a AND He justified his opposition to tho spbtreasary bill by_declarihg it unconstitutional in char- acter and subversive of the best interests of the people. No one could help but admire his manliness in advancing 'views which were not In accord with a respectable number of his constituents. A jplatform was adopted denouncing the pending tariff, force and lard hills, and criti- cising severely the arbitrary methods of Keed. The Alliance and Cotton. The district alliance of the third congress- ional district of Alabama adopted the follow- ing resolutions today: Besolvett, Tbat we recommend toe immediate assembling of tbe national cotton committee, t perfect plans to stop the downward tendency o cotton, and that alHancemen in every state with hold their cotton until the niarfcet reacts, as w know that the crop is short. Colonel Polk was also telegraphed to call a meeting of the national committee. Th alhancemen were enthusiastic in 5noport_o this resolution, and all they ask is co-opera tion. ENTHUSIASM IN The Democratic State Convention The Platform Adopted. INDIASAPOLIS, Ind., August 28 The demo- cratic convention was called to order in Tom linson hall at 10 o'clock this morning, by Chairman Jewett, of the state committee who immediately announced ex-Governo Isaac Gray as chairman. Thirteen hundred and three delegates occupied seats on the while the lobbies and galleries were filled with a larger crowd of democrats than has been gathered together in this state for many years before. The very lone one, was received with great enthusiasm Claude Matthews was nominated for secre- tary of state. Mr. Matthews is the most ex- tensive farmer in Indiana, and his nomination is something of a tribute to the alli- ance. J. O. Henderson, editor of The Koko- mo Dispatch, was nominated for auditor. The first and second ballots- for state treasurer were without result. Upon national political topics, tho platform >ys: "We, the democracy of Indianapolis, in con- vention assembled for the first time since the memorable contestof 1888, when we went down in defeat, but not dishonor, overcome by tlie shame- less methods of Dudleyiem and "blocks of do EOlmnly declare That the electoral vote of Indiana was obtained for Harrison and Morton by the mofat flagrant cnrae against the ballot ever perpetrated in an American commonwealth that these crimes were committed under the direct auspices ol 'Will- iam Wade Dudley, then and now tiejisurer of the national republican committee, and by the pro- curement and connivance of republican leaders in the slate and nation that the administration of Benjamin Harrison has made itself an accessory after the fact to these crimes Uy shielding the criminals from puniBhinent and even by reward- ing them for their knavery; and brazen Substitution of the machinery of the court or the district of Indiana bv its judge and attor- ney, to the service and protection of these con- spirators against suffrage, constituted the most infamous chapter in the judicial annals of the re- public. We denounce the tariff monopolists for their efforts to perpetuate themselves in power by measures inconsistent with free institutions and contrary to trood morals. We find in the force election bill a bill creating rotton borouph states, and in the McKinlcy tariU mil an open manitestation of tho gigantic con- spiracy of the minority to oppress groaning peo- ple with additional burdens of taxation for private benefit, and to fasten it on the country in euch a way that the people cannot free themselves from the galling load. "SVe denounce the force bill, which hag passed the house and has the active support of the ad- ministration, revolutionary and unconstitu- tional. It strikes down home rule and local self- government euggopts and encourages fraudulent elections and provides machinery to accomplish dishonest returns and talae certificates of elec- tions; fosters sectionalism and bayonet rule wherever the interest of tbe people invites peace, fraternity and unity; traditions a nd customs of a century by giving life tenure to partisan returning ioards makes tho legislative and execn- tive branches dependent upon the audiciaryand converts tbe judiciary into an Instrument oi op- pression aud coriuption; involves an unnecessary expenditure of millions of the people's money, and in Indiana nullifies the Andrews election law, passed by the last legislature over the determined opposition of republicans. We declare tbat in- terference of any kind by the federal government with state elections is a dangerous menaos to the form of government bequeathed us liy the rramera of the constitution, and that the intelli- gence and patriotism of the American people can safely be trusted to remedy any evils that may exist ill our elections. Governor Gray, on taking the cliair, spolco Tor over an hour, dealing principally with state isbues. His reference to ex-President leveland was received with tremendous ap- plause. A resolution was adopted to make the itate central committee a permanent body, elected every two years on Jackson's Da-y, January 8th. TEE SOUTH CAROLINA MUDDLE. Bounty Chairman Bryan Writes an Inter- esting Letter. CHARLESTON, S. C., August County Chairman Bryan yesterday received an official note from John D. Murphy, the eader of the Tillmanites here, demanding in nsolent terms that he, Murphy, bo allowed to appoint a manager at each, precinct of the coming: democratic primaries. In his letter, Murphy says the Tillmanites regard tho Bounty executive committee as illegal, but in- imates that for the sake of harjnony they, tho Tillmanites, are willing to take part in the election as ordered, provided, he, Murphy, is allowed to appoint a manager at each ward. Chairman Bryan will publish a reply to this etter tomorrow in which tbe fcllon ing occurs: I must say in frankness to you that even if I had tho right to do so, I could not give the selec- ion cf a manager to one action in tbe past emled to destroy the unity and harmyny of the lemorratic party in this city. You, no doubt, re- 11 ember that you submitted your name to the lemocratic party in this city in 1887, for an hon- orable alderman ol ward six, after >cing defeated by a very few votes, to evriity-eight, jon bolted tho nomination and ran is an independent without any cause, except that if gratifying your personal ambition.

SALVATOB TRULY KING EJfOWy WINS HIS GREATEST VICTORY By lowering1 the Mile Record, and tliat Iff} Three and a Half Story of tlie Run. NEW August vator is the king. Ten BVoeck's record for one mile, made May 27, 1877r is beaten sec- onds, Haggins's great horse covering the disc tance in If this does not prove Salvator to be the horse of the century then some further record which he is sure to> break long will prove it. "When Salvator made his appearance on Monmouth track today he was cheered by- thousands. Behind Salvator, Jike servants ia waiting, came Namona and Rosotta. They were worthy of the honor assigned them, for Namona is a sister to Ballarat and Kosetta is a sister to Sorrento. They were stationed, Namona at the start with Salvator, and Kosetta half-way down. The announcement appeared on the black- board tbat Salvator would carry 110 pounds in. his race against time. This meant thattheexe- e committee had refused to reinstate Mur- phy and that Haggin had boon persuaded to start his horse. Bight after tbe third race he was brought on the track and in company witli Kosetta was given Ms warming up gallop. Then. there was delay, but finally Salvator appeared followed by Kosetta and another horse, who were to act as pacemakers. F. Hall, J. J. Galway, F. Littlefield, D. D. Withers, W. Scott and Trainer Kogers acted as timekeepers. All that the thousands on tbe grand stand saw was a puff of dust far up tho stretch, and then a moving speck swiftly leave another speck tbat straightway fell far back and dis- appeared. Poor Namona! She was as the X'ine trees are passed when the cyclona sweeps through them. She had hardly started well before Salvator was so far in front of her that pursuit was useless. Down the thin ribbon of dnatcameSalvatoi, moving so swiftly that the thousands in tho grand stand had scarcely time to notice Namona's fate when Kosetta was beside Salvator. Half the distance bad now been traversed. Bravely did Rosetta face tho con- queror, and for a moment they were together. It was only for a moment, however, for Sal- vator was now sweeping down the stretch lifco a machine imbued with life. Kosetta was tossed aside like an idle leaf, and then Salvator came down alone. Just as he passed tho paddock gate, Berger raised his whip and let it fall without striking the noble borse, and so he came past the shouting thou- sands until he crossed the fiii'sliing line, and the great race was over. Hundreds of watches, all over the stand, kept the record, so tbat the cheering began, long before the judges hung out 1 -35V. How they cheered! It was an echo of that cheer which arose in Kentucky 011 that May day hirteen years ago. If Ten Broeck is in hero General Buford said she belonged with Lie felt no envious or jealous repiiiings yester- day, for the mile record was uon, and hon- estly won by tbe grandest thoroughbred tbafi ever trod on the American turf. Tlie following are Salvator and quarters in their races against time. V VTOn. TI'ITTV first 0-241-5 Second quarter..... 0 2-54-5. Third quarter ............0-24 "0 '25H iToiirtb qu.vrter 0 24 o Tbe most extraordinary feature of Salvator's race was the enormous gap he made in the record. No one who has watched him waa surprised to pee him beat the record, but every one was surprised to see him beat it so much. It was something unprecedented, and the performance yesterday one which will not soon be approached. Here in Atlanta the trial was watched through the medium of the turf with the greatest interest. The halls whero the tickers told the story of the run and the .ime at the quarters were crowded, and thero as, of course, but one topic of conversation, Salvator lower the That was often asked and the answer came backf If Salvator can't no horse can." "When the two words "Salvator" and 'time" were first placed on the boards, the tatement was made that Murphy, the little >lack demon, would ride the great king, jater came the announcement tbat Murphy lad been ruled off, and that Bergin would Ide, and Salvator stock fell perceptibly. Beta against his breaking the record were so 'entiful then that the exchanges finally ound it necessary to announce that no more -ould be taken. Then the race. Every tick of the ticker was istened to with as much interest as if ovcry man in the house was a telegraph operator and Id translate the mystic taps. Tbe great first quarter brought a cheer as did each suc- essiveono; and when the figures were put upon the boards, the shout could be heard Blocks away. The record had been broken, ,nd such a break! "I remember when Horzog held tho record or a said Mr. Jack Spalding, who was n a reminiscent mood. "His time was 'hia was clipped off a quarter of a second at a ijne until Ten Broock covered the distance at Louisville, Ky., with 110 pounds up, in mgfellow in his great race with Kingfisher miles ran one mile of the distance in which was the best till Ten Broeck, Kacino, California horse, covered the mile in at Ihicago this summer. Salvator's race with Tenny -he ran the rfiole distance, one and one-fourth miles, ia :05, or at the rate of per mile for the rhole distance. Salvator is four years old, nd was bred in Kentucky. He is by Prince Charlie, who is dead. In my opinion he is tho greatest horse this country ever saw, and I oubt if the world ever saw his superior. That ;me, will stand as the record for many a Tno Programme Carried. Out.
