THE RICH FUTURITY
Whitney's Colt Ballyhoo Bey,
' Sloan Up, Won.
OLYMPIAN SECOND. ATKINS THlk
Attendance at the Big: Rooo "Wan
Smaller Than Expected Results
on Other Tracks.
NEW YORK, Aug. 25. After a Journey
of 3000 miles to ride William G. Whitney's
colt Ballyhoo Bey, Tod Sloan, the whilom
American Jockey who has done altof hla
riding: In Europe for the last two years,
succeeded In sending: his mount first past
the post In the rich Futurity stakes at
Sheepshead Bay today and gathered In
$33,030 for his employer. The favorite,
Olympian, was second, Tommy Atkins,
from the same stable, landed in third
place, with the others trailing. The win
ner was ridden out.
The attendance at the bis race was not
asdarge as had been expected, for it was
thought that the track would be deep in
mud, and such was the case at 10 o'clock
in the morning. Nevertheless, fully 15,
000 people were on the grandstand, down
on the land, against" the rails In the
Inner Held, and up In the "free" field.
When the horses were called to the post
Just before half-past 4 o'clock, the crowd
had been coming in steadily since noon,
but there was no great rush at any time.
From sunrise until the first race was
called and between the races, a big gang
of men were at work on the track, scrap
ing, raking and harrowing it, turning up
the wet soil to the drying heat of the
sun, and It was In good condition when
the race was called, to the great sur
prise of everybody. ,
The big crowd waited patiently through
the first race and applauded wildly when
the Whitney youngster. Rowdy, was set
back from second place for a foul. They
Baw Mr. Whitney win the second with
Rush, and then' plunged on Jean Beraud
to win the Fall handicap, but Sloan, who
had the mount, after getting off flat
footed, rode into a pocket in the stretch
and was unplaced.
Then came the big race and the parade
of the highly-bred youngsters, led by the
Keene trio, Tommy Atkins, Cap And Bells
and Olympian, with Elkhorn and Baly
hoo Bey, of the Whitney Btrlng, next, and
the others following. They got to the
post promptly, and in a very few min
utes came the first break, which was a
false one, Golden Age refusing to -Join
his company. The second was worse, for
three refused, but the starter caught
them in line the third time the flag flew
through the air, and they Tvero off to a
Spencer, who was on Cap And Bells;
rushed his mount into the lead at once,
but Sloan, on Ballyhoo Bey, was not
caught napping, and sent his horse along
side the flying filly, Elkhorn. Golden Ago
and Tommy Atkins were close up and
they came down the chute like a line of
cavalry. Spencer, who was plainly out to
make the running for hls stable mates,
sent Cap And Bells along at her best
speed, but, do what she could, it was Im
possible to shake off Ballyhoo Bey, who,
a neck away, was principally helping her
I make the-pace. Sloan was crouched low
over her neck, wide awake to his advan
tage, as he was in a position to choose
his own going on a track that was siry
and yet wet in places.
At the end of the first furlong, Henry
had brought Olympian, another of the
Keene trio, from eighth place to third,
and was a length and a half behind
Ballyhoo Bey, while Tommy Atkln3, Elk
horn and Sweet Lavender were heads
apart a half length away, the others be
ing already far out of the race. The
positions were unchanged through the
next furlong. Cap and Bella and Bally
hoo Bey were running head and head In
front, the latter going much the easier
of the two, and Sloan looking around for
danger from behind.
All through the third furlong, Spencer
was urging Cap And Bells. She was run
ning gamely and still held a Blight ad
vantage, but it was plain to all that she
could not hold her speed to the end. The
pace was beginning to tell, and Henry,
seeing this, sent Olympian along to mako
issue with Ballyhoo Bel. These three
rounded the bend Into the stretch necks
apart, but Cap And Bells was done, and
from this point gradually dropped be
hind, Spencer easing her up when he
found he was beaten.
Ballyhoo Bey was still running ctrong
and true, and a furlong from home was
a neok in front of Olympian, with Tommy
Atkins, already under the whip, closing
strong a length back. From there home
it was a hard drive. The crowd in the
grandstand was shouting and cheering,
the hysterical shrieks of the women ris
ing above all. "The favorite wins!" was
the shout. "No, the favorite is beaten!"
"Ballyhoo Bey wins!" was then heard
from the followers of the Whitney stable.
Sloan was no longer crouched over the
neck of his horse, but was riding des
perately with whip and spur. Henry was
also working hard on Olympian, and for
a few strides It was hard to tell which
would stand the drive better. Gradually,
however. Sloan, with all his skill and
cunning, drew away with Ballyhoo Bey
and, amid the wildest enthusiasm, sent
the game little colt across the finish line
a length and a half before Olympian.
Tommy Atkins was a third of a length
behind His stable mate, while, five lengths
away, Sweet Lavender headed the re
mainder of the tired field.
The Futurity of 1900 was over, and
Ballyhoo Bey, for whom William a Whit
ney paid 512,000 as a yearling, was the
hero of the day. Sloan and his fleet
mount received an ovation when they
cantered back to weigh in. The band
played "Hall to the Chief." and the lucky
winners pushed wildly Into the ring to
cash. The summary:

WAR SCARE IN ENGLAND.
NETW YORK, Aug. 26. A dispatch to
the Journal and Advertiser from London
"That the -French Government Is pre
paring for war there canno longer bo
The iPall Mall Gazette makes this state
ment editorially. It does but put In
concrete form what newspapers in all
parts of England have been saying In a
more veiled way for three days.
A remarkable war scare has spread
through England. No particular Inci
dent of importance started it, but dozens
of little suspicious indications are add
ing to the size of the scare dally. There
Is absolutely no reason for war between
France and England, save the implac
able hatred of every class of each nation
for the other. The Barlsian newspapers
continuously ridicule the English In ar
ticles and cartoons, and the London pa
pers reply ponderously with- assaults on
the instability of the French Govern
ment and the failure of the Paris Expo
sition. Newspapers in all parts of England
havo contained scare articles during the
last three days on the active French
military and naval preparations, such as
laying in supplies of coal, strengthening
the fortified seaports, increasing the
Navy, stationing more ishlps at Calais,
Brest and the channel ports, arranging
for extensive Autumn maneuvers close
to coast towns and the unusual activity
on both land and sea.
What specially have scared tlie Eng.
lish are the French experiments with
submarine boats. The English Navy ha3
no such boats, while France is believed
to have several effective ones. These
submarine boats are liable to become a
nightmare in England, as their powers
are already being magnified tremendous-
The flrst official recognition of this state
of things came today when the orders of
the English Admiralty for increasing the
channel fleet became known. It Is the
custom to keep the larger portion of the
home squadron In reserve and out of
commission at the naval stations. All
the usual naval reserve squadron will
now be put Into commission. The newest
and best battle-ships and cruisers are to
be kept in constant readiness. The home
fleet will be divided into two squadrons,
one never to leave the coast, the othet
pe'ver to go further than Gibraltar.
Many ships are to be fitted out with
wireless telegraphy and the channel is
to be patrolled by torpedo-boats. '
Pneumatic Mall Tnhea.
WASHINGTON, Aug. 25. The cities at
which the pneumatic tube service inves
tigation ordered by Congress will be con
ducted, have been selected at the Post
office Department as follows: New York,
Brooklyn. Boston, Philadelphia, "Wash
ington, New Orleans, SanFranci3co, Den
ver, St Louis, Chicago and Cincinnati.
It is thought the investigation will be
confined to these cities, although It may
be found necessary to add several others.
The Investigation will begin as soon as
possible, and will be conducted In each
locality by the respective postmasters
and division superintendents of the rail
way service. Their reports and recom
mendations will be considered later by a
general committee of postal experts, who
will visit each city In turn and also in
vestigate conditions. The flatter com
mittee will utilize the services of ex
perienced engineers and experts.
Germany's China Policy Has
Undergone No Change,
DESPITE THE KAISER'S TALK
Continuance of the "War Depends on
the Chinese The Naval Maneu
vers White's Intervlevrs.
BERLIN, Aug. 25.-Offlcial circles here
emphasize the statement that Germany, J
shal Count von Waldersee's appointment
to the command of the allied forces in
China, stands In precisely the same atti
tude, as before. Germany, lt Is added,
still insists on carrying out the pro
gramme which the Minister of Foreign
Affairs, Count von Bulow, published in his
circular of July 8, and which was ap
proved here and abroad. It is also of
ficially stated that all the other powers
interested still adhere to that programme,
of which there now remain two most im
portant paragraphs, viz.: Adequate re
dress for Chinese crimes against Inter
national rights and the re-establishment
of an orderly state of affairs and the
Installation of a government willing and
,able to give guarantees against the re
'currenca of the recent outrages. Many
papers, however, continue to express dis
trust of the intentions of several of the
powers, especially Great Britain and
France, claiming they have separate plans
regarding the Yangtse Valley and the
southern provinces. So far as Russia Is
concerned, the German press is not ex
ercised, because it has been officially ad
mitted that Germany does not oppose any
Russian plans affecting the northern
provinces, as not touching Germany's po
litical or commercial interests. The be
lief Is generally held here by both the
government and the press that Count von
Waldersee will find plenty to do after his
arrival in China, even If his command Is
restricted to the Province of Pe Chi LI.
The leading centrist organ, the Cologne
Yolks Zeitung, forms an exception to this
rule, sounding a warning against Von
Waldersee's overstepping the bounds
drawn by Count von Bulow.
The Lokal Anzelger publishes an Inter
view with a Chinese diplomat here, who
is quoted as saying: "Neither the Em
peror nor the Dowager Empress will re
turn to the capital until the foreign
troops are withdrawn. Therefore, the al
lies had better appoint either a provision
al government or a regent, proposing for
tho latter Prince Ching." The Chinese
diplomat also advises concluding peace
and accepting the offer of LI Hung Chang,
"who assuredly Is empowered either by
the Tsung II Yamun, the Emperor or the
Empress." He further remarked that the
war was certainly over, "since China has
neither generals, soldiers or material
left" The only danger of a renewal of
hostilities, he declared, was "if harm
befell the Empress or Emperor."

White's assertion that the excitement
here regarding the Dingley tariff has sub
sided, and that the latest Von Holleben

important, pointing out that all the Im
portant points at issue are left untouched
by the latter, Including sugar.

AGAINST THE FIELD
Traveling Men Propose
Come Out First.
THEIS PARADE AT THE STREET FAIR
It "Will Be the SXdat Unique Proces
sion Ever Gotten Up on tho
What In earlier days was the fond dream
r of traveling men regarding their parade
in tne street Fair and Carnival. Is fast
becoming assured fact. One of the great
est attractions of this novel celebration
will bo on Traveling Men,s day Septem
ber 8. A host of the most active, in
genious and persevering business men of
the state are Into the venture and it can
not help but be a success. Traveling men
are taking hold of the work aa though
their business reputation depended on a
successful and peerless parade. What a
traveling man cannot do- when he makes
a serious effort, is not worth while for an
outsider to tryv There are countless hum
ble country merchants who will testify to
the fact that the traveling man can mako
white black, sell goods when a man
does not need or want them, and make
any single firm for which he travels tho
best on earth. Tho diversified talent3 and
persistency required for such perform
ances are not necessary In getting up
the big" parade, for only traveling men are
to deal with. "When Greek meets Greek.
fur flies, but when Greek combines against
the fleld, lt Is a walk-over.
When work for the Traveling Men's pa
rade commenced, lt was understood that
only commercial men were making tha ef
fort. This mistake was Immediately cor
rected, and every traveling man. of what
ever hue or calling, has been Included.
An insurance traveler, a traveling rail
way passenger or freight agent and a
commercial traveler are on the same foot
ing in the effort. Any one familiar with
the number of men. thus employed and
their business ability. Is capable of con
ceiving what may be expected.
An Immense field has been fenced for
the development of traveling men's genius.
When the committee decided to typify
every age of traveling men since history
furnishes authentic records, no better
plan could have been adopted for giving
these traveling men opportunity. How
they will appear 3 one point where the
discreet man does not venture even a
conjecture. The apprehensive people need
not be startled to behold some freaks.
That the parade will be a crowning suc
cess 13 the only safe conclusion, for ono
could not doubt that "with all the traveling
men back of lt. This will be a clay when
traveling men go against tho fleld, for lt
has been said confidently that no other
day can equal theirs.
The order of the procession has already
been fixed. These details have been put
in print and will be carried out faithfully.
At the head of the procession will march
a squad of police, commanded by Sergeant
Moore, and these will be followed by a
band. President Alexander Kunz, imme
diately following, will lead tho traveling

come the executive committee; a body of
