Hiwktoii,!!., Oct 20.-Marvin did
not like the wind that was blowing up
to noon to-day, aud said he would not
start Buun! unless the wind died out
He wa urged to make the attempt, a
the day was warm and the' track fast,
and at 4 o'clock he concluded to bring
her out, as (lis wind bad gone down.
He Jogged her three mile and ane
seemed to feel Just right. The track
as rubbed duwn for tlie attempt, and
Huitolwa driven out for a start Just
before 6 o'clock. A double set of
timer had been kept busy during the
other racing, and six Walchewerbcjd
on Hunot, to there could be no ques
tion alsiut the record. Tha mare had
bceu drlvett four mlkts, one rather fast,
hen she was found ready for the
event of her life. Tim O'Brien, of the
Palo Alto stable, wa stationed at the
half-mile pole with a ruuner to accom
pany Kmiol to the finish, but she went
alone the first half mile. Marvin nod-
ed for the word the first attempt.
President Hblpi shouted "Go," and
Huuol went out to win the record that
Marvin had been working for okmg.
Sunol was guided along Just inside the
center of the track, which had been
prepared Turner, and Marvin cautioned
her with hi long drawn-out "Whoa"
to keep her from becoming too excited.
She weut to Die quarter pule lo 811
seconds, aud kept on at her wonderful
trlde to the half-mile poet In 14 flat
Here Tim O'Brien came into the race
with the ruuuer. The mare came
around the turn faster than any nian
ou thegniuudseversaw a trotter go,
aud reached the three-quarter post In
17, It was a great race against time
as she came down the stretch to the
finish, aud the excited timer shouted:
Mln' m. iif "frihe'll tieat It" Bunol
came home In a magnificent finish,
Marvin had the race and he encour
aged tlie mare all the while by calling
ou her, but- did not use the whip.
Everybcsly shouted a she went under
the wire In 2:tt. It wa the gannwt
finish ever seen on a racetrack. Six
timer comred their watchc aud
they , were exactly the same 2:tj.
There was tin watch on the grounds to
dlomit the correct nee of the record
except lo make It faster by a quarter of
a second. The crowd yelled like craxy
men, and cheer after cheer went up for
8unol and Marvin. Marvin -a greatr
ly plensed with the result, but he was
oulet and had little to say. He sold to
rotsirteri "They will hammer at

After long argument of counsel, Judge

that the admitted facts were that the

efforts having been hampered and
obstructed as he alleged, by the opposi
tion of a certain faction of tho bond
holders; that the claims of men wereun-
deniable and their conduct'Cxcellent,
aud that the unpaid debts to the em
ploye ought not to be allowed to re
main on account of the quarrels among
tlicweulthy bondholders for the ulti
mate ownership of tho protierty; that,
therefore, tho receiver's account would
