that work on the Rock Point bi idge is

myself to the editor of the ,'Times," and
to which Mr. George Stephenson refers
in your issue of he 30th April, was
merely a response to, or acceptance of
his own proposition, publicly made; and
as he has so soon seen fit to retract it,
it is hardly worth while to waste lan
guage in the entertainment of another
proposition from the shnie source.
The difference between"n four-year-old
colt that has never had regular

the second proposition until he had
learned that Altamont's present en
gagements absolutely, precluded all
opportunity of training him during the
coming season. Mr. Stephenson speaks

were numerous, but the fact is, I have
