PRINCE ALERT'S GREAT HEATS Races At Hagentown In 2.053-4 And Beats Anaconda. And Conner. Special Dispatch to the Baltimore Sun. IIagerstowx, Md., Oct. 16. The second day's racing at the Hagerstown fair was witnessed by an immense crowd. In the first race the 2.17 pacing the favorite. Golden Rod, was beaten two- heats in close finishes by Red Rock, who took a new mark of 2.1&,X In the third heat Red Rock was cut down and unable to finish, but the Judges allowed his claim of 'unavoidable accident," and he started again. The accident seemed to take his speed, and Golden Rod had no trouble In winning the next three heats. The free-for-all pace brought out the three fastest horses that ever raced on a half-mile track, and each horse received an ovation on passing the grand stand. The track was lightning fast. Prince Alert was never headed. Anaconda tried to get on the inside at the first turn, but Cnrry let the Alert horse loose, and he paced like a runner to the quarter In 30 seconds and to the half la 1.014. Then Conner took a hand in the game, but he could not head Prince Alert, who won In 2.0014- In the second heat Curry allowed his horse to start out a little slower. He reached the qnarter iu .304, the half In 1.04, pacing the last half in 1.01, with Anaconda a close second all the way. But for the wind the world's record of 2.04V would have been beaten. It was the race of a lifetime, and the track record made by Prince Alert today may never be beaten. The horses were cheered again and again and each driver was eompclled'to doff his cap on passing the stand. Country Girl, at 10 to 1, won the 2.30 trotting, and Honest John, at 8 to 1, won the half-mile heats. The three-quarter-miie heats were easy for McFonso. Summary: 2.17 pacing; purse $400.

SAYS M'GRAW Talked A"o Baseball In XTew York, But Spent Ills Time In Pleasure. Manager John J. McGraw, of the Baltimore Baseball Club, who has been In New-York for several days, was In Baltimore yesterday. He says his visit to the metropolis was purely a pleasure trip. He said he had not talked baseball matters with anyone and that the stories to the effect that the Baltimore club would be transferred to New York were not only untrue, but were silly. McGraw says It is his usual custom after a season to take a little pleasure trip and he followed it this year. He spent most of his time at the Morris Park races. While there he met Clark Griffith, of Chicago, by accident. Griffith invited McGraw to visit him at his hotel, but though McGraw wished to do so he refrained, because he feared his visit would be the result of fn paper storlps. McGraw has received a letter from President Ban Johnson, who advises him that matters In St. Louis are In a favorable f-hape and that the pick of the St. Louis National League players have been corraled for the American League team. President Johnson says he Is opposed' to taking back any contract Jumpers. He appears to be sanguine of having all of the desirable stars playing on American League dubs next season. The prestige gained by the American League last season was so certain that the financial backers, of the clubs will not be backward in putting up all the money necessary to get the strongest players in the business. Manager McGraw looks to be In the best of health and says his trip afforded him the rest he needed. George Davis Sticks To Xew York. Special Dispatch to the Baltimore Sun. New York. Oct. 16.

The University of Virginia football eleven played Pennsylvania a hard game today, but Pennsylvania won by 20 to 5. Pennsylvania showed up weak in the first half, principally at the at ends, around which the visitors ran almost at will. Pennsylvania made her first touchdown soon after the start by pushing the ball 75 yards down the field. Shortly after this the visitors secured the ball in Pennsylvania's territory, and Coleman, from the 25-yard line, kicked a field goal. Before the half was ended the home team forced the ball to Virginia's five-yard line, where the latter gained possession of it.. In attempting to kick out beyond the goal the ball struck the post and a -Virginian fell on It for a safety, making the'score 8 to 5 In Pennsylvania's favor for the half. In the second half Pennsylvania's defence braced up considerably and the offensive playing became more powerful. In this half the red and blue made two touchdowns, principally through line plunging. Quarterback Howard, with the assistance of Reynolds, made a brilliant 65-yard run, the best thing of the contest. The line-up: Pennsylvania. Positions. Virginia.

Middle Atlantic Association athletes held their meeting at the Eutaw House last night to discuss the present complexion of amateur athletic politics, since several of the large clubs around New York have announced their Intention of having certain matters straightened out or bolt the Amateur Athletic Union. President Gustavus Brown presided over the meeting. The clubs represented were the Maryland, Druid, East End Park and Patterson Athletic Clubs, the Peabody Outing Club, the University of Maryland and Baltimore City College. It is stated that letters were read from the disaffected New York clubs and from people in Pittsburg, who are dissatisfied with the course of affairs in the A., A. U. and are muttering revolt. These letters told the "insurgents" that their success in continuing a separate organization without the pale of the A. A. U. for several years has been carefully watched, and the writers intimated that they would like to bring about closer relations between the "Insurgents" of Baltimore, Pittsburg and New England. The associated decided not to act hastily, but to hold another meeting on Wednesday night, when some decisive action may be expected. Another subject discussed was that of taking steps to prevail upon the Intercollegiate Athletic Association not to form a new alliance with the A. A. U., which will require the college authorities to recognize the political suspensions of the A. A. U. The "insurgents" realize that such a new alliance would be a disastrous blow at those who are ambitious to start a rival to the A. A. U., and they will use all their efforts to prevent such a step being taken. DUAL ATHLETIC MEET St. Leo's And West Branch Y.M.C. A. Promote Athletic Friendship.

The game of bowls will be Introduced at the Baltimore Country Club and will find a place on the smooth green lawn to the north of the clubhouse. . A set of eight bowls and a jack bowl, made of the choicest material, was purchased by Mr. 'E. H. Bouton while in Europe, and It arrived at the Country Club yesterday. The implements attracted a great deal of attention, and were tried by many who otherwise love golf alone. The game of bowls has been popular for many years In Europe, and, to some extent, in this country. It can be played by two, four, six or eight persons, and is not easy. The jack bowl Is thrown at a certain distance from a footing, and the object is to roll the bowls as close as possible to the Jack bowl.' The bowls are not true spheres. Ihey are so shaped that they will not roll in a straight line. This makes it necessary ' to, use great Judgment, as the curve It will make has to be taken into consideration. Jfow Brlna- On Your Skipping- Ropes. Now the boxers are worried about which is the best rope skipper. Harry Lyons and Eddie .Gardner claim the championship of the rope. .

Bobby announces that Jack- Ashton, who put up such a stiff fight with Whistler, has been matched to fight "Kid" Lackey 10 rounds at Thompson's Club next Monday.

HERE AND THERE The Cargo Turned To Taffy. Here is the story of a ship that started with a cargo of sugar and reached her port with a cargo of taffy. The sea has no other story quite like it, or none that has evet been recorded. The ship was the Charing Cross, from Rosarlo, Argentine Republic, and the strange metamorphosis in her hold was not discovered until she arrived at her dock in London. The cargo 31,000 bags of sugar was stowed away In four different compartments of the ship, and the work of unloading begun on the day following her arrival. The ship and dock hands rapidly cleared the first, second and fourth holds without experiencing any difficulty, but when they came to unload Xo. 3 they found that the sugar there had become one solid block of a dark brown substance 12,000 bags, equal to 1,000 tons of sugar, had been converted into taffy. The mass was as hard as marble, and it was found impossible to unload it in the usual way. The hard substance was firmlyattached to the sides of the vessel, and had encompassed everything else in its grip, so nothing could be done but dig the stuff out. A body of 40 men, using picks and shovels, was employed in breaking up the taffy berg in the hold of the ship, and after 30 days labor. the men at length succeeded In clearing away the last bit of taffy. It had taken eight men only nine days to unload the other three hatchways, containing the major balance of the cargo, the minimum rate at which a shipload of sugar can be discharged being 0 tons a day per eight men. But the combined efforts of 40 men engaged In clearing out the taffy pit. in the ship's hold could not turn out more than five tons a day. The determination of the congealed mas3 to resist the onslaught of the 40 men resulted in the breaking of about one ton of iron tools ' of all sorts, including wedges measuring three feet long, which got twisted and bent like so many limp candles : pickaxes, whose strong points got flattened out : chains, the strong links of which snapped in two ; great iron bolts that got splintered like clothes pegs, and hue crowbars that got bent like hairpins. If these 12,000 bags of sugar had not got converted by a mysterious agency Into taffy their removal from the ship would have cost only $165, but in the present instance the cost of digging out the hardened stuff cost $2,350. The sugaV market has lost 12,000 bags of "fly fancy," as sugar is called at the docks, but confectioners, and brewers have 'bought the taffy, giving S35 a ton for it. or less than half Its original value. All together, the making of that thousand tons of taffy means a loss of $5,000 in the aggregate, but the ship has become famous, for the Charing Cross Is now referred to as the "taffy ship." The catise of the transformation cannot be discovered. The sns-ar was loaded In troDlcal weather, and thosp particular bags which went wrong must have contained sugar which was In an abnormally moist condition. The hold In which It was stored Is just abaft the engine room, and subject to great heat. The subseouent change of temperature, from torrid to f Held latitudes, helped to solidify the mass. Toledo Bee. Trouble Over Great Men's Xames. A tempest has been started In AshevU'e. X. C, over the course of study provided for pupils In the sixth grade of the public schools. The instructions to teachers are as follows: "Use freely stories from the lives of great men, as Washington. Franklin, Jackson. Lincoln. Grant. John Brown, Lee, Jackson (Stonewall), Edison, Audubon. Garrison. Longfellow. Agasslz, Clara Barton and others." A wild cry has been raised against John Brown. It Is demanded by the: citizens that his name be,, iromediatelyjtrlcken. from the list, and one of our; Southern contemporaries angrily says: "Tt is no wonder that protest against this action has gone up from the State. John Brown was a rebel against his government, a disturber of the public peace and an anarchist in Its fullest sense. He declared war upon law and constituted authority, setting aside the Instrumentality of the Constitution for the redress of grievances and substituting therefor his own will. lie met the just fate of the lawbreaker." It Is unfortunate that a controversy should be started over this matter now. The members of the Ashevllle School Board certainly exhibited a lack of tact when they made out their list of "great men." But their offending did not end with the naming of John Brown. We wish to emphatically protest against the Inclusion of Clara Barton In any list of "great men" that may be compiled. We shall not go so far as to refer to her in any such terms as' our Indignant contemporary uses In Its denunciation of John Brown, but we emphatically protest that Miss Barton Is not a great man, and never can be regarded as such, no matter how thoroughly sectional differences may in the future be forgotten We, therefore, join the people of North Carolina In demanding that the Ashevllle School Board shall at once revise the course of study provided for pupils In the sixth grade. Chicago Record-Herald. Blackmailers Bravely Foiled. Jean Valjean. of Hugo's masterpiece, stepped from heights won under a new-name and' proclaimed himself a felon to save another man from suffering in his stead. President K. P. Wolfe, of the Shoe Trust, prosperous for years in a new life ia Ohioi lays bare to the world, that he may thwart a gsng of blackmailing scoundrels, a page of his early manhood which includes a brief term in prison. Two jflne-, exhibits of courage these, one In fiction,, one in fact. Mr. Wolfe's conscience made no coward of him. He expiated his offense long ago. He did not propose to endure an endless expiation through persecution. His example should go far amongsthe myriad cases wherein blackmailers flourish today. He is a winner through his brave avowal not only in peace of mind and in pocket, but In public confidence and approval. . Inevitably the Wolfe Incident brings a reminder of the case of Philip Moen,, the barbed-wire millionaire of Worcester Mass.. who was blackmailed for years by Levi Wilson, commonly known as "Doc," and who died in 1S91 without revealing the secret upon which the blackmailer played. Wilson made his collections openly. They amounted to more than $500,000 and were spent In luxurious living. After the death of his victim Wilson added Moen to his other names. "Because I was entitled to it," he said, which was the -nearest the mystery ever came to solution. York World. LOCAL BRIEFS Bits Of Xews Gathered In All Sections Of Baltimore.

Exchang S LTBUEBS AND COUNTY Samuel Reed Charged With Assaulting: Little Girl. ACCUSED NEGRO IS IN JAIL There Are Cries Of Lynching As Constable Hobbs Starts For Towson, But The Officer Allays Excitement. At midnight It was reported that a lynching was likely to occur at Towson before morning. Though the customary quiet prevailed In the town and all county officials except those on watch were abed, groups of men moving silently about aroused suspicions that something unusual was afoot. Deputy Sheriff and Constable Caleb S. Hobbs yesterday morning brought to the County Jail at Towson Samuel Reed, colored, about 18 years old, who Is charged by J. Harmon Clagett with having committed a felonious assault on his daughter, Carrie Clagett, who will be 4 years old in February, on October 15. Mr. Clagett lives cn the Liberty road, near Randallstown, in the Second district, and the offense is said to have been committed between 4 and 5 o'clock In the afternoon, while the father was away. Reed, an employe of Mr. Clagett. was out In the field husking corn, when the child came down near where he was at work. It is alleged that Reed gave the little girl some chestnuts, and then accomplished the crime. After the negro had let her go the child ran crying to the house and told her mother what had happened. Mrs. Clagett sent for Dr. J. E. Bolte, of Harrlsonville, and also summoned Constable Hobbs, who lives In the same villege. Dr. Bolte, who attended the child, said the negro was guilty. Charles Clagett, the child's uncle, on being Informed of the occurrence, went on a hunt for the negro, who started to run as soon as he caught sight of Mr. Clagett. At the home of E. W. S. Choate, Reed endeavored to enter the door and was caught. Mr. Clagett . took his prisoner down to the registration office at Howardville and banded him over to Constable Hobbs, who haled him before Justice William E. Fite. at Hernwood. At the hearing J. Harman Clagett, Charles Clagett, Dr. J. E. Bolte and Constable Hobbs gave testimony, and Reed was committed for court. It was then near midnight, and the Constable look Reed to his home to keep him there until morning. The hour was very late, and not many persons had heard of the affair, to which circumstances Reed probably owed his escape from rough treatment at the hands of infuriated citizeni. . Constable Hobbs sat up all night watching his prisoner, . and told the men who seemed inclined to seize Reed to let the law take its course. " After Reed had climbed Into the buggy one man attempted to drag him out, and there were cr'.es of "Lynch him!" "Lynch him!" from the crowd. The constable, however, succeeded in averting violence. On his arrival at Towson Reed was locked up in the County Jail- Reed Is a son of John and Rebecca Reed, who live at Randallstown. He was taken to Cheltenham about four years ago by Constable Hobbs, having been committed to that institution on the charge of incorrigibility. Reed denied Tuesday night that he had attempted to commit an assault, but on his way to Towson yesterday he admitted, so Constable Hobbs says, that he had taken liberties with the child. Reed Is very black and repulsive looking. OTHER SUBURBAN NEWS Baltimore County Finances Reported In Good Condition. ' James E.
