New York, Mav 19. If the skv gleams blue tomorrow many thousands cw xorners will journey down to Gravesend to witness the running of the classic Brooklyn handicnn. Fif teen horses are announced aa nrnba. ble starters for the $20,000 purse, and the handicappers are at a loss to choose a favorite from among a half dozen of these, so evenly are they matched. Accountant, the big money inner of last year; Tokalon, the Texas mare which won the event last season; Go Between, Dandelion, Su perman, balvidere, Nealon and Arcite are among these.

Superman, Jmes R. Keene's Commando colt, last inursday stepped a mile and one-six leemn at Belmont Park in 1:44 3-5, equaling the world's record for that distance. In this racs he carried 112 pounds. The Brooklyn handicap is at mile and a quarter, and in it Superman is asked to pick up only ninety- nve pounds. Miller will ride him.

Accountant, Go Between, Salvidere and Dandelion are looked upon as the horse9 most likely to force Superman to extend himself if he Is to bring the rich prize to the Keene stable for the fourth time. At all events, no matter who may be the winner, it will be a hard-fought race from start to finish The probable starters, with their weights and jockeys, h-e: Go Between. 120, L.

WILD SCENE OF EXCITEMENT "SIN KILLER" GRIFFIN HAS GROES SHOUTING. NE Tabernacle Was Packed Full of Ne groes Upon Whom the Sermon Had Effect Shouting Was Loud and Long. "Sin Killer" Griffin last night more than fulfilled his promise to "have 'em shouting and praising God," for sel dom if ever was there witnessed in this city a scene similar to that at the tabernacle last evening. The tent wasi packed and jammed with negroes and a few whites, and the latter were at times unnoticed for the noise and excitement that attended the preacher's remarks. Rev.

Griffin began his remarks with some funny remarks as to his past his tory, how he took up farming in Mis sissippi; was taught to plow by tread ing lightly among the spreading adders and blunt head moccasins, and how he stole a sack of cotton seed and traded it oft to ''another white man" for a hog, together with various othvr incidents of his career. Speaking of his work In this city he dwelt upon the fact that he had received but little for his services, and stated that when a certain white man had given him $5 for the orphans' home the act had filled him with such Joy that he had forgotten to turn In the money. These remarks completed, he turned his attention to his proper. The first paragraph began with the words. "When I was in New York;" the second, with "During my.

visit to Detroit last month," and tlie third, with "My friend, Carter Harrison." Very many of his prefatory remarks dealt with himself, and during the whole of his sermon the virtues and experiences of J. L. Griffin were touched upon whenever opportunity offered. It was not long, however, before he got down to the real work of the evening. The negroes, who had been amused by his beginning remarks, Joined with solemn countenances in "The Old Time Religion," and by the time this was concluded they were In a proper frame of mind for the "rapid fire" work to commence.

The preacher wiped his forehead, straightened up his shoulders and launched a bolt at the entire sinning contingent of the neero race, including gamblers, thieves and liars In one magnificent burst of oratory. Then he became more ex pllolt and hurling a few more at the different varieties of sin, pegan upon the horrors of death. That settled It. Ho had but fairly begun when one old negro woman arose and proclaimed her ineffable happiness by shouting loud and long. She was allowed full sway and before long her shrill voice sunk to sighs and moans, through which she continued to saout forth that she was saved from the horrors rlptiloted bv the speaker.

The sermon continued ana witn continued In constantly Increasing vigor the shouts and happy cries ol the saved, many of whom pusnea tor ward to take Rev. Griffin by the hand. It was but a short while before some "got hawy In the true Rense or tne word and not alone oy vocai aemon strations, but by squirming and writh ing In an ecstacy of Joy did they ex Dress their feelings. No one who witnessed tne scene or who heard above an tne am ana clamor the steady sing-song voice of the preacher, can wonder at his Tame or power. iNo matter now ioua tne noise or how rrnntlc tne snouts, tne voire went steadily on In statements n-hlph.

even if not founded on the srriotures, at least had tne deslrea pff.ct upon the audience.

During the nervloes dozens of ne OT-nea went to shake his hand and ex press their belief in the principles he set forth. Rev Griffin left last night for Waco, where he will be until Thursday, when ho will return to continue nis worn here. FORMER DETECTIVES ARRESTED. San Antonio Men Charped With 8har in Coleman iMiiing.

No expense of time or money is too great to Insure Justice to an accused person, but the view of a foreigner above 'quoted, to the effect that our conspicuous and spectacular trials swell the lawyers' heads and belittle the law," Is shared by an increasing number of Americans. It Is doubtful if many Judges or lawyers actually believe that a well-nigh Interminable duel between opposing lawyers or be-j tween lawyers and expert witnesses Is an aid to Justice. Especially when an accused has great wealth ana is able to carry on an Indefinite contest running through weeks and months, the question arises whether Justice can be served and saved without permit ting the duration of the trial to limited by nothing except the wishes of counsel and the purse of the client It Is not simply a question of enormous cost to the public; It is a question of practically monopolizing the court to the exclusion of other important business for an indefinite period. To say that there Is no remedy for these abuses Is to admit a very glaring defect In our system of Justice. Many times It Is obvious that the real purpose of the prolonged struggle Is not to secure, but to defeat Justice.

Still the courts seem powerless to interfere. There should be no clamor, Indeed, for any procedure that would deny Justice, but the question Is pressing hard upon us whether or not there any way of securing Justice except by the present practice of letting the trial go on as long as counsel desire to drag it. The Interminable length of many trials comes dangerously near being a burlesque and a ecandali Case and Comment Equal to the Emergency. The Rev. Dr.
