A PRETTY RACE TO VICTORY AT MONMOUTH PARK. StrugrgH far the Cov- eted Title Strathmeath Wins the Junior Championship of the Grand Circuit Races at Roches- of the Baseball Games in the Three Big Leagues. MONMOtrra PARK, N. J., Aug. was champion day at Monmouth yester- day. This speaks for itself, as race goers regard it as the most important of the meeting, and they always turn out in full force. Over people were in attend- ance. The weather was fine and the track in good condition. There was the finest collection of youngsters ever entered in the Junior Champion, and in the Cham- pion those two equine and the starter. All of the nineteen youngsters entered in the Junior Champion started, with Ambulance the favorite at 3 to 1. It was a grand race all the way down the stretch, but in the last furlong Strathmeath, Poto- mac and Sallie McClelland drew away from the field, and in an exciting finish they were so close that nobody could pick the winner till the numbers were hung out. The judges placed Strathmeath first, Sallie second and Potomac third. Scarcely had the boys weighed in for the Junior JChampion when the crowd surged to the betting ring to play Salva- tor against Tenny. Salvator wag the fa- vorite at 4 to 5 on, while 6 to 5 against Tenny; could be had all ever the ring. Both horses getaway to a very even start, but in a few jumps Salvator's blazed nose showed in front on the outside. For five furlongs they fan in this order, then aa they struck the turn for home Garrison let a link oa Tenny and he shot to the front, getting a- lead of half a length. Murphy on Salvator, however, did not let him get any further away. He at once sent Salvator after tbe little swayback and was soon at Tenny's neck. From this point to within three furlongs of home it was a pretty race. Then Murphy began to ride and the shout went up, "Tenny's beaten." It was true. Tenny had to ac- knowledge defeat. When Murphy found that he had Tenny beaten be eased np and, as Garrison did the same thing, it was a tame finish, Salvator wiuuing by four good lengths. This victory settles decisively the relative merits ef Salvator and Tenny. The fractional time of the race is as fol- lows: Quarter, half, three- quarters, mile, mile and a quar- ter, and mile and a half, The following are the results of the races: First race, mile: Meriden first, My Fellow second, Belwood third; time, Second race, Junior Champion stakes, mile: Strathmeath first, Sallie McClel- land second, Potomac third; time, Third race, Champion stakes, 1% miles: Salvator first, Tenny second; time Firenzi was drawn.

BOSTON, Aug. the weather been made to order for the veterans the condi- tions could hardly have been more favor- able for the big G. A. R. demonstration yesterday. The sun was obscured by clouds, while a brisk wind held the flags on the buildings straight out from their masts. Before 8 o'clock the roar of cannon from the fleet in the harbor announced that the Despatch, with Secretary Tracy, Vice President Morton and Gen. Sherman on board, was coming up the bay, and half an hour later another salute announced her arrival in the harbor. The distinguished gentlemen were es- corted to the Vendome. and subsequently Secretary Tracy and Vice President Mor- ton to their seats on the presidential re- viewing stands at Copely square. President Harrison breakfasted at the Vendome, and shortly before 9 o'clock he received the governor and state delega- tion, and the party took carriages and rode over a. portion of the route of the parade to review the decorations. Shortly before 11 o'clock Gen. Alger and staff, escorted by Cavalry Post 113 of Massachusetts, who were preceded by mounted police, rode down Newbnry street, after a short trip over a portion of the route otthe parade, and passed the rows of saluting naval veterans, through Arlington street and up the north side of; Commonwealth avenue, amid the cheers' of the crowd and the forming organiza- tions. After a short delay he came down the soath side of the avenue, the now formed lines saluting and bands playing "Hail to the Chief." It was just when they reached AT- ington street. The Parade Started. After the general's escort and staff, numbering 600 horses, came the Illinois department of which the feature was An- rora Post 10, which bore a transparency with the inscription "The home of Lincoln, Grant and Logan." The Wisconsin boys who followed got many a cheer and pro- voked many smiles as they carried a wdger in a wire cage suspended on a pole. Pennsylvania, the third division, was remarkable for the number of old battle lags it bore, over fifty being in the line. The Ohio division was-led by Department Commander P. H. Darling, who received many, cheers as he passed down Commonwealth" avenSfe.- There -were iij- numberable horse-eliefithuts in the line of which the distinfui'shibg" feature 'was a luge copper horse chestnut suspended be- wee'n the poles and bearing the inscrip- ion, "Presented by Fairbanks Post, De- roit, Mich., to Forsytbe Post, Toledo, O. New York's leading feature was Post 40, dressed in white hats ;uid unpreten- ious but very neat uniforms. The Guer- Uas and Zouaves were much cheered, but he boy band of fifty-five pieces from the mission of the Immaculate Virgin, New York city, took the hearts of the crowd. The Nutmeg state was fitly represented jy a huge nutmeg, and a colored Con- ecticut post bearing axes was much ap- Dlauded, while G. Van Hooten Post 3, ersey City, was most cheered of the New- ersey division. At p. m. seven state divisions had >assed, and it was evident that the parade vould be much longer than had been an- icipated. Department Commander John X Anderson of Maine received a good eal of applause. Post. 7G of Castine, Me., arrted pine trees, and the three-cornered hats of the Continental band of Bath, Me., were a feature of tbe division. A. horse captured from the enemy at >dar'Creek elicited much applause from he crowds in Arlington street. very man in this division wore a silver lani shell. Prescott Post 1 of Providence, R. I., was large enough to make up for the smallness of the state and the colonial uniforms of the Continental band of Vv'oon- socket attracted much attention while Colored Post 13 was cheere-i loudly. Fara- jr.it Association of Naval Veterans marched in the rear of the Rhode Island division. The Kearsarge flute and drum corps of Portsmouth headed the New Harnpshires, winch came in two sections. At twelve states had passed and those marching down were greeted with the distant s juud of the returning of their comrades from New York and Ohio, but not half of the veterans bad yet fallen infolineand the announcement that there were 13.000 Massachnoetts '-till standing on the common bcliiiH'. more distant posts which still filled wealth avenue was the signal fnrconsidcr- able But the d held c> >o 1 and .nds greeted with cheers the ap- j.c-riv.ff r-f o.ich ne-v division.

As each department came in front of tie stand colors were capped, raised, arid in many iiistanc'ea cheera given for the president. As The posts went by, carrying battle flags, and us their tattered and torn folds caught the eyes, every occupant rose and chirred lusiily, while the ladies of the panj waved their handkerchiefs. The paradi; K.S a whole favorably commented and each notable feature was very generously re- paired. A MugiiSGcent Spectacle. Viewed from Franklin gqunre the G. A. R. parade was amagnificent spectacle and was witnessed by fully people. The two grand stands on both sides of the square were completely filled long before the time assigned for the parade to appear. The grand arch at the head of the square profusely decorated was the centre of at- traction, especially to the eyes of the vet- erans, bearing as it did a finely executed representation of the battle of Gettysburg. As the parade appeared in sight of the grand stand at the square the air resound- ed with cheer upon cheer by the impa- tient crowd and when Gen. Alger came in sight he was greeted with prolonged hur- rahs. Handkerchiefs and hats were waved until he passed out of sight. The proces- eion was a magnificent spectacle from this point, the line of march reaching nearly two miles in a straight line. The decora- tions in this vicinity were elegant. The parade was nearly six hours in passing the square. The following briefly covers tbe parade: At p. m. a squad of mounted police immediately followed by Commander-in- Chief Alger and staff, made their appear- ance in Adams square. The commander and staff were received on the stand by Gen. Butler and others. Hardly had he taken his position on the reviewing stand when the head of the procession came in sight. Gens. Alger and Butler stood .side by side, saluting column after column as they passed. After the long march which the veterans had undergone, they braced. themselves for a appearance as they passed their commander and they -did finely. Post 5 off Chicago gare the first cheer at the call of "hurrah for our next and it was given heartily. Next came a call for "three cheers for Gen. Butler" from a Wisconsin post and they were also given with a will. In fact, both were heartily cheered throughout the passing of the procession. On the appearance of the Pennsylvania posts with their torn battle flags, rousing cheers went up on all sides. The entire parade was a series of ovations for all the departments along the line of march. The largest post in the procession was Post 5 of Lynn, which numbered 725 men in line. All the past commanders of this post are living, sixteen of whom marched on the staff of E. W. Hall, the present 1 commander. Gen. Alger arrived at Adams' square the end of the route at p. m., and the last carriage, at the end of the procession, entered the square at p. m. The pa- rade was five hours and thirty-five min- utes in passing. The dismissal at Adams square occurred without confusion. No break was made until after the arch near Hanover street was passed, and everything went off with remarkable, smoothness to the end. The Mayor's club of Boston tendered banquet to President Harrison and other distin- guished visitors at at- hotel. About 110 covers -were laid in the cafe. The ;al p.iriy was ovt-rnue at the Mechanics' hali reception, and nfter a brief ceremony at the tables M.iyor Fisher of Waltbarn introduced Mr. Harri- son, who said: Harrison's Speech.

The knights held a rousing mass meet- ing last night in the Academy of Music. A number of letters of sympathy from other organizations were read and stir- ring speeches made. The assertion that if necessary the firemen and engineers would go out also was received, with loud cheers. A runaway engine, which started from Schenectady, came down the grade to- wards Albany last night at 9 and was switched off near the upper bridge.
