of some depositions- That factional strife

speaking of the affair, said:
"Captain Berry does not belong to this

that gets afloat that because a trial Is
held here It has some implications with
the Fourteenth. Lleutonant Hamilton,
whose name was mentioned In reference
to the Berry ease, has no connection with
It, and In regard to this I wish to say
that I am conversant with the Hamilton
case, which was a ourt-martlal held for

the Berry oase I have no knowledge. It
is being tried by a board of officers ap- V

in a different proportion than was . an
nounced upon the entry blanks. This
right they claimed under the rules.

to change the manner of dividing the
purse, the intention should have been an
nounced before the horses started. The
matter wag taken before the National
Trotting Association and deckled adverse
ly to Tongue, and this action was brought
to test the question in the courts.
