Yesterday opened cloudy and not very
promising for the races , Unt no rain fell
and the track was dry and in excellent
condition , a little too dusty , but in the
afternoon there was just a sprinkle ,
which hclpsd some and intu'lercd not at
all. The worst feature of the weather
yesterday wac the wind , which blw
fetoiilly iii the faces of the horses as they
came down the homo stretch , keeping
them from making as good time as would
otherwise have been recorded.
The attendance was fair , and
never have there bean races
whlcii ontiM'd more enthusiasm
and excited more Interest. The contests
seemed to bo honest ones , and the horses
wens sent to win. There were many
starters , anil fast ones. The horses got
oil' much easier than usual , and there WHS
less of the scoring so tedious to specta
tors , and yet so .seemingly indlspensiblo
to a IIOIMJ race. There was perfect order
on the grounds , and many ladies were in
attendance who seemed fully as much in-
teiosted as their masculine attendant.1) .
The balloon man did notgo np , having
run short of wood with which to gener
ate hot air , and the wind doubtless being
an actuating cause. He promises to
mount into the air to-day , however.
The dogs ran a race \ylitch pleased the
boys espec i ally. These side features prove
of little interest in comparison with the
The first event of the afternoon was
the finish of tlie'JW : : race , four heats of
which were trotted Tuesday. Great in
terest was taken in this , as it was evi
dently a cent jst for blood. Consul , who
had been sold the day before , had a now
driver , the noted Ben Walker. The
horses trot an easy start , the positions
being Itowluy Hauler at the pole , Alnieta
second. Logan Chief.CoiiMil. Jerry L had
been drawn. Before reaching the unarter
pole Corsnl went , on" his feet badly , and
was broiight. nearly to a stop. Rattler
kepi the lead to the half.Logan Chief and
Almeta following lapping each other.
Consul iiiislu'.d along and soon after
the half trot his nose ahead and kept to
front easily , passing under the wire as
winner of the heat in 2:27J : , without a
stroke of the whip. Almela was second ,
Lo an Chief third and Rattler fourth.
The next heat proved the deciding ono.
It was a pretty heat and a fast one con
sidering the wind , which came into the
horses' faces as they came down the
homo stretch , The start was a line one.
Lognn Chief took the lead and kept it to
the quarter , but Consul kept steadily at
work and lapped him on the half , and then
they went nose and nose , seeming from the
distance of the stand like one mov
ing. Rowley was several lengths be
hind. On turning into the stretch the
white nose of Consul was seen poking
ahead , and while Logan Chief
was strongly urged Consul proved too
speedy and came under the wire two
lengths the winner. Time 2.33.

A. C. Arnold , Donison.
There was some trouble in getting a
start , and the judges began talking live
dollars to the drivers. After Jack Rapid ,
Mattie Stipp and Mattie Harlo had each
contributed that amount , they got off.
Little Matt m Harle pushed to the front
before the quarter was reached and trav
eled along so easily and speedily that it
tieemed she would bo generous if she did
not cause them all to catch the Hag. Ex
press and Mattie Stipp were crowding tip
a little by the half , with Jack Rapid keep
ing fourth place. Mollie Cooper broke
badly on the naif , but when she got down
to business traveled nicely and made np
much of the lost distance. Mattie Harlo
began to weaken on the third quarter ,
and when thu horses came into the home
stretch Express had his ahead and
came in the winner , closely followed by
Mnttic Stipp , while Matlio Harlo us third
was lapping her. Julia Leo came in
fourth and Jack Rapid fifth. Mollie
Cooper got the Hag. Time 2:24 : } .
The second heat was largely a repeti
tion of the first. Mattie Harle sped along
well until the half mile pole , Mattie Stipp
kept steadily in second place from begin
ning to finish. Jack Rapid kept third in
the race for the first half ,
when Express pulled along stead
ily and surely past him and
niter keeping neck and neck for n little
distance with Mattie Harle , passed the
little mare who dropped into third place
as they turned into the homestretch. In
this position they came under the wire ,
Express winning tlio heat in 2:21 : } , Mat
tie Stipp second. Mattie Harlo third ,
Julia Lee fourth , Jack Rapid fifth. Ex

goer , making the heat easy , while Mattie -

The third heat was the deciding one ,

Express and Julia Leo following in the
order named. On tlio next quarter Mattie -
tie Hnrlo had gained tlm lead , and Jack
Rapid had dropped to third placo. Then

Thcro are some strange conllicts grow
ing out of changes of venue. Ono of the
chief troubles seems to have arisen be
tween Mr. Wave , who as county atlornoy
is Iho prosecuting attorney in the slalo
cases hero , and Squire Hondricks , as hon
est a magistrate as ever was chosen to fill
the position of justice of the pcaca. In a
state case brought before Judge AyleS'
worth some time ago , Mr. Ware , as pros
eotilinjr attorney , had Judge Hcndrlcks
snbpienacd as a witness , although the
latter denied that ho know anything
about the case. As the defense asked for
a change ot venue from Judge Ayles-
worth , this summoning of Judge Hen-
drioks as a witness nnido it appear that
the prosecuting attorney did not want to
try the case before Hondricks. The the
ory being that the state is willing to
trust any ot its magistrates with n hear
ing of its cases , and the prosecuting at
torney saying so plainly lhat ho , as a rep-
ruicninliyo of.lho stale , did not want to
trusl ir betoru Justice Hondrioks , Iho lat
ter naturally took it as an insult. Judge
Ayleswonh sent the case to Hendrieks ,
despite the sunmmi , and Ware was mad.
When the case came before Hondricks'
court \Vnru \ was ponty , and thu court
and nrosccuting attorney did not havea
love feast. The atlornoy got hot at
what ho deemed a wrong ruling of the
court on some motion anil dismissed the
Yesterday Mr. Ware showed that ho
had not forgotten or forgiven , The cases
of MoN'ulty and Yitlle , for assaulting
Spiers in a .saloon on Broadway , oamotm
before Judge Aylesworth. The defend
ants asked for a change of venue , by
which the cases would no sent to Justice
Hciidricks , the next nearest magistrate.
Mr. Ware , as representing the slate , then
filed some very strange objections to hav
ing the cases tried before llendrlcks. In
hie atlldavit ho set up the claim that Jus-
tieo Hendrieks was prejudiced against
the attorney for the state , and the right *
of the slalo could not be rightly rep
resented. He swore'that the inncistrntc
ofuses to allow him. as state's attorney ,
0 examine any of thy lilps and record * in
ijs otllcc. in wliioh the stale has an inline-
liate and dlrccl interest : that upon joint
nformntions liu magistrate allows dc-
'cndant's to be trio I separately , making
great embarrassment and unnecessary
jxpense for the .state , the magistrate re-
'uses to outer of record the objections
n'operly and locally made in benalf of
: ho slate , anil greatly embarrasses and
irojudices the intoro lsof the stale.
Jndgo Ayl(3 worth concluded that if the
Utornoy for ( lie slate and .Justice Hen
drieks were .so at swords' points as to
make it dlllicnlt to try a ease there , he
should send the case olM'whore. Then
the attorneys for the defense , Limit &
Mynster , seeinc that Iho cases would go
to Justice Schur/ . filed objections to him ,
and Iho cases wore sent to Justice Frainoy.
The showing of hot blood on the part
of Ware will not make the public think
my less of Justice Hendrieks. Mr
Hendrieks is an old resident , who has
gained n .standing and reputation here
which cannot be injured by any such
proceedings on the purl of the jounger
man , who has been placed in tins position
jf county attorney by the action of thu
jourd of supervisors hi election de
fending on not nvm * half a do/en voles ,

the people directly. If personal qtiar-
, 'flls are to cause > tito : cases to be tossed
lithcr and thither , or dismissed
iltogether , because Iho court and Its
ridings nro not exactly in accordance
with the wishes and views of the attor-
ley rii ! > ro. onting the stale , It is high
time thcro was a change. If this is tun
precedent then the county attorney
should he elected tlrsl , and then let him
lame the justices who are in his opinion
suitable persons , and with whom ho can
work in harmony. There is little use for
he people to elect justices if a personal
'celing between an attorney chosen by
tlie board of supervisors and justices
chosen by the people causes juslieo to bo

For several weeks past il has been ini-
lossiblo for the ferry ears lo accommo-
lalo more than half the teams who
have wished to go over thu river. There
las been a constant stream of wagons of
every description from day break till
dark trying to gain admiltanco to those
cars , while many drivers who have at
tempted it , have loiind on reaching the
depot their chances so poor they have
returned their conveyances lo the stab le
.ind had to KO over without them.
This could bo easily remedied by the
Union Paeilio pulling on another box
car with the ends knocked out and
starling the ferry cars from Council
Bluffs about 5:80 : or 0:00 : o'clock in the
morning instead of 7:05 : o'clock. On
Broadway each morning there are teams
us earlv as 4:30 : o'clock in position to
await tlio first trip. The ferry cars could
easily bo dispensed with on the 10:25 :
run , and put onlo an earlier run in Hie
morning. i
Council Bluffs is now supplying Omaha
with a great many brick , llowcrs , grapes
and fruit of all description , as well as
vegetables and the 'loss by detention
waiting several hours for a chance to get
on the ferry cars is'grejitcr than many
persons would imagine. ,

* Ever since .lake Rogers sold out his
'bus line he has been talking c.itllo ranch
in Nebraska , and every 'time ho meets
MeGrew , the insurance man , lie Iries to
induce him lo invest his surplus cash in
3'earling calves and open tip a ranch out
in Nebraska. YestoEdayi MeGrew was
walking by Ihe Pacilip house when Jake
opened out on him as follows : "Say ,
Alack , when are j'onTj'omg to < ro to Ne
braska with me and open up' that 'oatllo '
ranch ; yon see you can buy yearlings for
fiom fourlceii "to eighteen dollars per
head , and feed them on grass for about
two years and- "
That selllea it. Jake never said
another word. MeGrew has attached to
his upper riirht-liand vest pocket a chest
nut protector , wiiicii consists of a little
sailor's electric boll , and when Jake
started in on his same old cattle ranch
story , Mack started the bell on him , anil
the ex-omnibus man fell off the window-
sill. The boll is a clipper , and MeGrew
carries it in his vest pocket , and when a
man commences on him with tlio same
old chestnut yarn ho starts it on himand
that settles it. MeGrew , you know , is a
real quiet sort of feliow , and has to keep
a chestnut protector to keep alive.
It AVixs the Sun.
"No. my darling , the rod on my nose is
not from liquor , it is the sun. " So said
the proprietor of one of the largest
wholesale houses in this city on his. re
turn homo the other evening when his
wife mot him at the door.
You see , one of our wholesale cigar
men thought ho would take a trip on the
road last week just for a change and to
get a little fresh air. Bold Watson is Iho
regular traveling man for tlio linn , and is
a hustler , and the color on his nose is
caused by Hie hot sun vhcn he drives
from ono town to another. The pro
prietor took a few grijH , drove from
Lopaii to Magnolia and got his face all
reddened witli the sun. lie also stopped
all night at the hotel in llondamin. lie
is now at homo waiting for the races to
come off. His wife thought the red on
his nose was something flso , and he is
wailing for Watson to come in so ho can
show to his wlte what an effect the sun
has on a man when ho drives across the
country in an open bnjrgy , It is a fant ,
but the proprietor says : " \To , thank you ,
1 will stay at home the balance of the
your. My health is no bctlor , but I have
n healthier color. "
Another Sain of Consul.
The reported sale of Consul to Mr.
Smith , of Maplelon , for $10,000 seems to
have fallen through. Mr. Smith wiis to
arrive last night with the wherewithal lo
complete the purchase , but yes-
