[ Special to the Bnr. . I A shocking accident
occurred yesterday at Crolx do Bc'rny , when
Mr. Altred Torrance , tliu well known Ameri
can gentleman rider , fell with his liorso dur
ing a race and was instantly k Hied. Crolx
do Bcrny Is ono of the most picturesque *
spots In the environs of Paris. It Is a few
miles west of the Bols dc Boulogno and has
long been celebrated as the scene of the
yearly cross country meetings of gentlemen
riders , which constitutes the most fashiona
ble and most select turf event In France.
Crolx do Berny Is to the Grand Prix what
the Sandown park meetings ore to the Derby.
Yesterday long rows of mall coaches and
smartly appointed nrlvato equipages were
drawn un opposite the weighing paddock.
All thn grandea armos ot the Fauberg Saint
Germain , radiant In spring toilets ; hundreds
of officers in the dazzling sky-bluo and scar
let uniforms of the French cavalry ; members
ot the Jockey club ; in a word , all that makes
up the ultra-fashionable world of Paris , were
there. It wasabaautlfulday. The sound ot
popping champagne corks resembled the
steady roll of distant musketry , and was
only Interrupted by the soprano notes ot the
young ladles as they offered to lay dozens of
pairs of gloves on their favorites. The .ex
citement was at its highest pitch when the
bell rang for the third race a steeple chase
handicap for 0,030 francs over a course ot
5,000 metres with very stlft obstacles.
Mr. Torrance had as n mount the mare
Gabjlo , who was second favorite In the bet
ting , the odds being threeto ono azalnst
Gabjle. Eleven horses ran , and of those iivo
fell or balked before the last jump from homo
was reached. Mr. Torrance was riding beau
tifully and was rapidly gaining on the first
horse and seemed certain to'win the raco.
At the last ditch , Clovls , ridden by Mr.
Brockwcll , fell , and Gabjlo , coming over Im
mediately behind , was also brought down.
Mr.Torranco fall so that unfortunately ho
lay sandwiched In between the two horses.
His chest was crushed by the force of thu
shock , and this was not all , for Clovls began
klcktnz and his off hind hoof struck Mr.
Torrance In the back of the neck , breaking
the vertebral column. M. Torrance was soon
to raise his arms and plaso his hands to the
back ot his head , but before his friends ,
who" rushed from thn weighing paddock ,
could reach him , lite was extinct. Ho must
have boon killed instantly by. the crushing
of his chest , and the movement ot his arms
tothe back of his neck was probably a nervous -
ous contraction of the muscle caused by the
breaking ot the column. All his
ribs were broken and his breast was like ono
mass of jolly. Ills head remained attached
to his body merely by the skin and tendons ,
and when the body was raised from the
ground by the stewards , the head fell and
hung down the back as If it wore held simply
by a string. The sight was most ghastly.
The utmost consternation prevailed In the
stands and seven ladles fainted away.
Mr. Torranco's lifeless body was taken to n
county Inn near the course and placed on a
bed , whence It was brought to his apartment' '
In the rue Cambon In Paris this afternoon.
The body will bo embalmed. Mr. Meredith
llowland , Mr. Torranco's brother-in-law , ar
rives hero to-day from Cannes. Mr. Tor-
rancn was only thirty-six years ot age. Ho
was a nephew of the late W.H.Vauderbllt by
marrlago , behaving married ono ot Mr. Yan-
dorbllts nolco.s , from whom ho was subse
quently divorced. As a horseman ho had
few equals In Europe. Ills seat was perfec
tion and ills pluck knew no bounds. Many
and many a time ho was warned by bis
friends about his reckless riding , but his In
variable answer was , "Wliero a horse can go ,
I can go too. " His tragic death , however ,
was not duo to recklessness , but purely to
1 had a conversation this morning with the
Frlnce de Sagan , president ot the steeple
chase association of Franco , who , In behalf
of the jockey club , especially notified Mr.
McLaln , the United States minister , of the
death ot Mr. Torranco. The Prlnco de
Bagansald : "Why , only halt an hour be
fore his death I was talking with him. He
vras smoking a clearctto and complained of
his getting too stout. Ho said : 'I can't
work myself down below sixty-throe kilo
grammes , and I take turklsh baths three
times a week and have given up all farina
ceous food. '
"I said to him : 'Don't you find It pietty
hard work heroV
o "Torranco said : 'Yes , lam going to give
. up steeple chasing altogether. It Is too great
a strain on my system to keep up the con
stant training. ' The fact Is this will
probably be the last race 1 shall over ride. "
"Poor Torrance. Neither lie nor I dreamed
ot the tragic significance these worda have
now. "
The Prince do Sagan concluded the con
versation with mo by saying : "When you
cable the news , don't forgot to say that * Mr.
Alfred Torrance will bo remembered in the
annals ot the French turf as one of the finest
and most intorprld gentleman riders who
ever crossed a saddle. "
Another serious accident occurred at Crolx
do Burnoy yesterday. M. Plerredou , a lieu
tenant of cuirassours , broke a leg In a fall
from his inaro Marqmso In the military
Mr. Torranco's victories on the French
turf have been numerous. Last year only ,
atDIcppe.'he won the Prix Duquesno on his
horse Percy , and his two representatives ,
Yictolro and Percy , were first and second In
the grand International steeplechase in 1SS4.
IIu won thn Prix dei Lions at Chantllly on
Iceberg , after a bad boat with Tartar. In
tlio same year no met with a serious acci doni
ot Vlncennos , In the Prix Soumur , when M. .
M. Torcho and Andre Voubort were also InJured
Jurod , and he never thoroughly got over this

By Attorney Marsh.
The TwcntT'Ilrst Dny.
Sioux CITY , la. , April M , S. F. Lynn , of
counsel ( or the ( Intense in tlio Haddock mur
der case , opened the nrgumcnVon the twenty-
first day of tliu trial tills morning. The at-
tvndanco Is again on the Increase's arid nsMho
closing hours arc approaching oven the de
fendants , hitherto assuming .Indifference
and casual Interest , show signs of exceeding
nervousness. The plea of Lynn was ex
ceptionally bitter on two Important state
witnesses Lcavltt and UlsmarcK and , In
fact , the cntlro array "of witnesses and law
yers for the prosecution were so-
erely arraigned for assisting In the persecu-
lon of Arcnsdorf.
In the afternoon , S. M. Marsh , county at-
ornuy , opened the second argument for the
tate. As during several days past the wlfo
of the accused and the swidow of the mur
dered man , sat quite near each 'other , just
back of the chair of the dofondant. Marsh
opened by a briet rovlew of the condition of
ho city and community at the
line of the murder. The good
reputation of John Arensdorf was men-
lonca ; his life-long following of the business
of a browcr ; his having his all In the busi
ness , knowing no other business , having no
other property than that which was enlaced
n this business. Plainly , no ono had a mo
tive to wish George C. Haddock dead , excapt-
ng the saloon element , none so great a rea
son as John Arcnsdorf , the brewer. Good
character Is not a defense. It Is n proper ev
idence in defense , but It does not prove the
accused guiltless. It is not to be taktm as
higher evidence than the evidence
of onn who saw and hoard. Had Judas lived
In this day ho would not liavo gone and
hanccd himself he would have plead pre
vious good character as better evidence than
the evidence of the eye and car. Public
feeling It would bo n strange community In
which such an occurrence would nut reuse
public lecling a community composed of
such as these , who lay in watt for Haddock.
The defense asks why the state did nut put
on FritFolgcr. . The answer Is that the state
was afraid ho would not tell the truth. The
defense asked why wo did not put on the
wife of Bismarck. Because all she would
prove had already been proven If the wife
of Bismarck would have told a dltfercnt
story , why did not the defense put her on ?
'Iho story of Mlunlo Kosnltskl the child
who Is said to have been .moulded by
counsel for the state is confirmed in every
essential point by witnesses for the
by Nepner , by Franclscus , by Arensdorf
himself. It would have been more manly for
the able counsel to have not abused the little
Klrl when all the essential points In the evi
dence of the little girl was confirmed by their
own witnesses. Counsel then took up the
defense's eye witness to the killlnu' and ridi
culed an array of legal talent that would pre
sent witnesses testifying to directly opposite
conditions and circumstances attending the
moment of the shootlrii ? , . , But ono motive
was apparent , and thst AVAS an attempt nt
confusion. Marsh \vjlltjoceod with , his ar
gument in the morning.

Miss Julia Thomas , who had been selected to

hat the system Is far from bencfitting iho

brought before thn association a'llttlo ton-
rear-old girl , who attends the public school ,
and made her go through the motions used
n the school. The ladies watched the llttlo
; lrl , and the conclusion reached was strong
that the present system was wholly Inelll-
clent. Miss Thomas spoke strongly on thn
subject. In detailing her oxpcrlenco at the
various schools , Miss Thomas said that she
Had encountered a strong feeling of discon
tent among the tcacners and pupils In mixed
publla schools because of the presence of
colored children. The pupils made trouble
because they had to sit In classes with them ,
and the teachers taught them witn repug
nance. The speaker's remarks were
greeted with sllonco at first.Then the mem
ber who sat next to the president said with
emphasis : "I declare that 1 am an abolition
ist and my fattier was before me , but I think
the law that permits black and white chlM
dren to mingle together is an outrage on
white children. " There was a hum of ap-
prpval which followed this outspoken con
fession of opinion. It was qulcklv followed
by other remarks of a similar nature until the
president was'obllgod to call a halt , which |
was only secured .Hiter much persuasion and
loud talkmg. The matter was dropped for
the time being , but it is understood it will be
taken up again. Ills said by some of-.the *
teachers that the remarks made but faintly
portray the state of feeling on the part of the
whites in regard to this question.
