The great day of the fair was favored with
tnost auspicious weather , and the manage
ment was in smiles. Thousands of people
Attended the great exhibition. As early ns
11 o'clock about 10,000 people wore on the
fjrotinds. . The parade of the traveling men
in the city kept many people uway , but about
noon the great stream of. humanity wa
turned toivard thg fair grounds and poured
in perfect floods through the different gates.
During the afternoon thg crowd was vari
ously estimated at Jrom twenty to twenty-
The Judges ot the various classes got to
work earlier than usual and by noon had
n warded prics for the best specimens of
horseflesh , harness , both single and double ,
the fattest cattle , to the different
varieties of chickens , green-house
plants and mechanical contrivances.
The display of the last named Is of great in
terest , particularly to the country people ,
and consists principally of liny rakes , har
rows , plows , cultivators , hay and elder
jprcsscs , with a multitude of other articles.
The display of wagons , buggies and other
vehicles is now complete and probably the
largest and handsomest ever made here.
The management Is doing everything in Its
jiowor to provide for the comfort of the vis
itors. Sprinkling carts me busy settling
the dust , and barrels of ice water arc pro
vidcd in abundance to slake the thirst.
The latest attraction added is the display
of wild animals and birds by Ernest Meyer ,
Of South Thirteenth street , ouo of the most
extensive amateur fanciers of the kind in
the state. The collection Is nearly as largo
as an ordinary menagerie and has been ex
citing the greatest interest. Crowds are
about it constantly. Mr. .Meyer lias made
pets of all the birds and animals , and their
Jirauka excite continual bursts of laughter
nnd admiration. The collection comprises two
wolves , a fox , a badger , three raccoons , two
antelopes , two mountain lions , two piairio
ilogs , \vhito rat and ten young ones , lit teen
rabbits , including the silk , white and Rus-
Kian varieties , an American eagle , turtle
doves , magpies , horned owls , Spanish carrion
birds , and other rare specimens of beast and
The interest in the dog exhibit still con
tinues. 1'Al Rothery's tauious rat catcher ,
"Pete , " Is particularly sought .out.

The races , us a natural consequence , com
manded the attention of thu majority of the
immense throng , nnd long before the first
race was called the grand stand was packed
like bardines in u box. The entire course
Br > was lined twenty deep , while the quarter
Btrotch aud paddock was a sea of moving ,
cheering , enthusiastic people. Tlio turn out
of vehicles in the stretch was very largo ,

linlf , when William H. , under a full head of
etcuin , forged to the front , and at the three
( quarters was neck and ncclc with Ed ward B. ,
xvith Deadwood third , Captain fourth and
Kittlo B. last. It was a line struggle down

Vms thrown into the Captain and
a few strides lapped him
with Edward B. , while Deadwood and Will-
lam H. at the sumo time passed Kittlo B.
tThe race down the homo stretch between
Captain and Edward B. was a tine ono. The
tioble animals came in like n whirlwind ,
their noses thrust out as if they knew what
Vras expected of them. The -Captain made o
t > ad break on the upper stretch , but was
taught handily , nnd instead of losing in
creased his speed and beat Edward B. out by
a length. Dcadwood was third , William H.
fourth , and Kittlo B , again bringing up the
rear. Tlmo-2:28. :
After a couple of scorings the horses were
fllven the "go" for the third heat , Captain
getting oft u trifle the bent of it , and never
Allowing himself to bo headed. At the quar
ter Edward B. was a close second , Deadwood -
wood broke here and fell behind. At the
half William II. had displaced Edward H. ,
nnd for the third
quarter the struggle o-
tweou him and Captain was oioso nnd
spirited. Coming down the stretch William
H. was very sjveedy und ho was beaten out bv

IJunkcr Dr. West drew the polo , Tommy
I < ynn second , Billy Huntccr third , nnd
Lorcno fourth ,
The horses got off on n lino. West , however -
over , quickly showed his head in the van ,
closely followed by Bunker , Lynn and
Loreno. At the quarter the horses were all
lapped , mui rounding into the half tlio nags
Btruncr out , with West still leading. In the
last quarter Tommy Lynn challenged West ,
nnd the struggle between them was ex
ceedingly exhilarating. West would surely
have won the bent , but 100 yards from the
wire lie broke badly , ofid Tommy Lynn gave
liiin his dust , dashing under the wlro a
length In tbo lead of Loione , who had also
profited by West's break. Billy Bunker was
B poor fourth. Time 2:22. :
As wonderful as it may seem , the pacers
cot off together on tbo first scoring for the
the second heat. Tommy Lynn , who , by
the way , was admirably driven by
Scott McCoy , soon hud his
bead In front , with Lorcno lapping ,
1 Dr. West aud Bunker striving to collar
third. An ujjly break Just before the quarter
was reached Mirotv West a half dozen lengths
In the rear , while Lynn und-Lorcne wont by
the post nose nnd nose. In these positions
they paused under the wlro nt the half , but
nt the three-quarters Lynn had managed to
pull a full length in the lead , while 3rWest ,
who had regained LIs feet In good style , gave
Billy Bunker the shako. Com'ng ' into the
stretch McCoy gave Lynn a lltlio extra urg
ing nnd ho increased his vantage over Loreno
hy u couple of lengths. Billy Bunker nt this
time \vas running at u breakneck pace to save
himself. At the finish Lynn had the best of
Loreno by two full lengths , while Dr. West
was five lengths in thu rear and Billy Bunker
received the flag for running. Time 2:21 : ! f.
They were sent off In the third heat after u
single scoring. Tommy Lynn took the lead.
with Dr. West a close second , and they held
these places to the finish. Loreno loft her
feet several times and was a hopeless trailer
almost from the start. The doctor seldom
allowed daylight In show between him
and Tommy , uud noltticr made a
break until the homo stretch was
reached , when Dr. West mndo several skips.
In consequence Tommy wont under the wlro

The HrootcB-AIItMl Fight at Council
IllnfTp ItrnokH Win * .
The Brooks-Alton mill for f50 n side and
the eutlro gate receipts was fought at day-
llsht yestoreay "morning " In a romantic llttlo
plmi sovcnil miles cast of Council UlufTs on
the "Old Limekiln road , " In the presence of
about fifty spectators.
The light lasted barely nlno minutes , Allen
being put soundly to sleep In the third round
by a terrific ri ijLjhandar between the eyes.
The match originated In a llttlo jealousy between -
tween tlio men , which resulted In Allen's Is
suing n challenge for a light to u finish to
settle nil their dlftlcultlea effectually , and
demonstrate to the satisfaction of the friends
of both parties the comparative merits of
the two pugs. Allen had never been In the
ring before , while Brooks had displayed his
science and gauio in several hard fought
battles. Allen had nrovon himself quite
handy with the "initteus" In Couucll Hinds
gymnasiums aud athletic rooms , and all a' '
once became possessed of the idea that ho
was n bom prizo-flghtcr. It is highly luiprob
able that ho will allow his imagination to rut
away with him ngulu to such an alarming
It was about 3 o'clock yesterday morning
wheu carriages began to drive swiftly ubonl
the city , and although one could scarcely toll
where they collected their loads , it was evi
dent that they were bound for u common
meeting point. After dodging hero and
there for seine time to cscaiw the police , who
were vigilantly watching , the party met at
the entrance gate of Union Driving park.
The light was to have como off In that part of
the city , but Just as the party was preparing
to move over to tliu proiKiscd battle ground ,
n gray pacer hove in sight , going like the
wind , and there was no mistaking the city
marshal's favorltu ilyer. Marshal Guanella
and Captain Dj cr wore seated In the buggy ,
and they were not long In Imparting the in
formation that no mill should come off Inside
the corporate limits of the city. Another
start was made , and the two ofllcors fol
lowed and saw the party a inllo beyond the
limits , when they returned to the city. The
drive was continued until a suitable placa
was found , .lust as day was breaking the
ring was pitched , tickets collected and the
contestants Jumped over the ropes into the
ring , A well known local snort was chosen
referee , and quickly gave the order "inalto
Just then n belated member of the party
arrived , am ] reported passing Sheriff O'Neil
and two deputies n short distance away.
This announcement caused quite a ripple of
excitement , and sentinels wcro posted on
the tops of several neighboring bluffs to give
the alarm in case they saw any suspicious
parties approaching. All of them prepared
to take to their heels in caoo of a raid , and
each picked out his course through the brush
and over the hills.
'limo was called for the first round at ten
minutes beTorol ! o'clock , and the scrappers
gottowoik. Hoth sparred a few seconds
for an opening , when Hrooks got in a heavy
one on Alien's 1100 , staggering him and .start
ing the crimson fluid In u copious stream.
From that moment Allen was a whipped
man. Ho reached hiivngely for Hrooks' ribs ,
but fell short , receiving In return another
dii7zler on the noscj. U jioro ho could get the
stars winked out of Jtitt eyes , he was treated
ts two nmru solidcncs on his damaged pro-
bosclf. Ho made ia rush at Hronks , who
slipped and foil ; in getting away. First
knock down wai claimed for Allen but not
allowed. The round closed without another
The second round was very similar to the
first. Allen's mnUllor was visited several
times , and ho became dcoidedly grogjiy.
lirookx touched lifm lightly on the mouth ,
and it was followed by some ineffective in
fighting. Allen rushed his man to the ropes ,
aud with a heavy mbroaster landed him out
side. It was his only hit of the battle. As
the men sought th'cir corners , Urooks was
apparently as fresh as over and showed no
signs of having fought a round , but Allen
was rapidly weakening.
AH they came tbpithor for the third round ,
Hrooks saw hid opportunity and forced the
fighting from theBtgrt. Ho had everything
his own way , and hit Allen whenever and
wherever lie 'pleased. Allen wont down
when his no < ? o was waked up amiin , and ho
had scarcely reached his feet when Hrooks'
formidable loft Inii ol on his neck , flooring
him n second tltno. Ho managed to raise
himsulf to a standing posture and parried
two or three light ones aimed nt his ribs ,
when Hrooks caught him a stunner between
the eyes and the flglit was over. It was a
clean and complete knockout , and Allen did
not regain his senses for fully three minutes
The party made a rush for the carriages ,
and in less than three minutes every trace
of the battle was removed and the place
The spectators were decidedly fore over
the battle and wished they had their 3 back
again in their pockets. Allen was no match
whatever for Urooks , who li one of the best
lightweights in this part of the country. The
parly expressed considerable pleasure over
Allen's having seine of the conceit taken
out of him , but regretted that he hud en
deavored to pass himsillf off ns n prize
lighter , anil insisted that ho ought to be ar
rest od for lighting under false pretences.
The result was by no means u surprise to
Uroolts" friends. Hs is n scientific and very
ngilo young pugilist ana strips for the ring ! n
nlniOJt perfect form. It was a matter of
surprise to many citizens that the fight was
allowed to take place , when It was so gener
ally known that the parties were going out
for that especial purpose. It Is certain that
the olllcials were not averse to allowing
the battle to como off , or even to witnessing
Jt , if it was not fought within their juris

gram to TUB BEE. ] Superintendent Corry
and Thomas Mitchell , resident trustee of the
Mitchellvlllo reform school , called upon the
governor to-day to see what ho proposed to
do regarding the alleged scandal in connec
tion with the school. The governor said
that after carefully considering the charges
ho did not think there was enough to them
to warrant the state In making nn investiga
tion. Ho said that ho was satisfied that the
author of the principal attack upon the trus
tees was actuated by Improper motives , nnd
not by n sincere desire to servo the state.
Ho added that in a few days Uo would per
sonally visit the school and make an investi
gation , and then if the superintendent
wanted a formal Investigation ho would
order ono. The charge , in brief , is that the
superintendent had been allowing glrU sent
to the school to leave for work in private
families , in violation of law , nnd that In ono
or two Instances they had fallen into im
moral practices while so away.
