I.ouisvn.TE , Ky. , May 9. The spring
mooting of the Loutsvlllo Jookoy club opened
tj dav. The wcnthor was line and the largest
crowd ever known was present , being var
iously estimated nt from 15,000 to 23,000.
The track was in 'good condition , well
sprinkled , hard and safe through two. inches
of dust , and a little fast. A great race * was
expected , but tfio expectation did not rise to
the reality. As uvo yearsngo Itagln brought
Hen AU out of tbo west to lower the
Kentucky Derby record to UsM ,
BO Armstrong came to-day , with Spokane ,
and two seconds moro disappeared. Arm
strong n year ago suld that ho was going to
take this , the highest Honor of the west.
There wcro not enough coast pcoplo to over-
coma the Immense onthuslam which backed
the homo , Proctor Knott , nnd betting
wan nearly all ono way. The first pool sold
this morning was $150 for Knott and $111 for
the Hold , while much better than this was
done , both in thu books nnd especially In
private bets. This shows the strength of
As the horses filled the track for the great
event , all appeared In perfect condition. The
Jockey on the uroat futurity winner was
cheered to the echo as ho came out sixth ,
and Young's entries , who followed , were
also applauded. Spokane was hardly no
ticed , though qulto n tip was out among thu
knowing ones that ha had been saved tor the
occasion. Facing the post thu starters and

Hollis ; Ilindoocraft , 118 , Armstrong.
The starter had little diniculty jn getting
thorn off together , and the start wan very
ovon. Illndoocruft was in front , Bookmaker
second , Spokane third. On the way down to
the stand Uarncs gave Proctor Knott his
head , nnd the great goldlng bounded for
ward lilto a flash , passing the stand llvo
lengths in tha lead , Illndoocruft second , und
Spokane third. 'Young's pair were close bo-
hind. All the way around to the head of the
stretch the positions wcro little changed ,
though the crowd was closing up on Knott ,
who was evidently waiting for the finish.
As they turned around the stretch
the race commenced , and seldom
was such a run witnessed In America.
Knott was let out , but Spokane came up
with a tremendous rush. Half way down
the stretch Kuott swerved , nnd Spokane
forged to the front by two lengths. IJarnes
wheeled the favorite into line Just as they
reached the distance stand , nnd ho came up
lilco n bolt. It was too late , however , and
Spokane passed under the wlro a winner by
a nose In 2i4K : : , Once Again third , thrco
lengths off. The rest were strung out.
Spokane is owned by Noah Armstrong , of
Holonu , Mont. , where ho was bred. Ho

scarred veterans , who buried thoir. sectional
prejudice at Appoinatox , and who were glad

Although n blatiso in the presidents' '
agreement provides for the discontinuation
of fast trams , both passongo und freight ,
as far ns practicable , the question of fast
trams la now the uiost Important In railway
Upon Its withdrawal from the llvo stock
Dgrecmont by the liorthwostorn , the IJur-
lltiKton announced that It would run llvo
Block trains us fast as steam could haul them ,
Wednesday night It Inaugurated the eor-
vlco , and entered Into n contract with Mo-
Cloud , Love & Co. , of Sou i Omahu , in
which It Is to convoy a train of twonty-ulno
cars loaded with stock from Omaha to
Chicago In the rpmarltnblo tlrno of eighteen
The fast train loft hero Wednesday
night and , at Pacific Junction , was
divided Into two sections. The
train reached Chicago in safety
and mailo the run In sevontcon hours ami
forty minutes , this being the tluio required
by the second section ,
The Milwaukee road , lust night , took In
tow n train of nineteen cars loaded with
cattle brought In by the Union Pnclllc. The
train loft hero at 11 p. in. , and was sched
uled to Chicago on a sixteen hour run. No
report has been received concerning the
tiniu of Its nrrival at Chicago.
In addition to the issue on fast freight
trains , that of a fast passenger ttorvlco Is oc
cupylng considerable attention. The prin
cipal diniculty is between the Union
Pacific and the Burlington on Chicago-Den
ver business. Already the { Turlington has
compelled the lines between Omaha and
Chicago to cut down their tune two hours ,
and now the Burlington threatens to shorten
Its tluio between Chicago : ind Donvur , mak
ing the run in thirty hours , whereas the pro
posed fast schedule is thirty-two hours. This
action has boon brought about , It is said , by
the Union Pacific's tin up with the North
western and the Chicago & Alton. The
Union Pacific and the Northwestern can
inuka any time established by the Burling
ton , but in pressing the fast limit the Bur
lington hopes to shut out the Alton deal.
Under the arrangement with the Alton , which
takes effect bundny next , through trains
will bo run between Chicago and Denver via
Kansas City. This Is a circuitous route as
compared with the Omaha circuit , und , by
making quick time , the Burlington antici
pates the diversion of trafllc from the Kan
sas City routo. Tlio Alton claims that it can
imd will make the run between Kansas City
and Chicago in twelve hours and thirty min
utes , but it would crowd the Union 1'ncllic ,
it is said , to make the run to meet the Bur
lington over the Kntfsas division to Denver.
Conservative railroad men are of the opin
ion that the imbrdtfllo will result in the cut
ting of rates , and atjno distant period.
Why the North\vcstoru Withdrew.
CHICAGO , May ) > -Spcclal | Telegram to
Tim BUK. | ThoJ action of the Chicago &
Northwestern road ip withdrawing from the
agreement to umku thirty-two hours the
minimum time to' bo consumed in the run
ning of stook trains between the Missouri
river and Chicago , has caused considerable
surprlso. It was. , this road that first pro
posed the movement jind brought about the
acreemcnt of thoiintcrested lines to reduce
the speed of their stock trains. It appears
that the action of tbo roads aroused the in
dignation of the Missouri river stock ship
pers , and linowhif { < J.Jmfc it was the Chicago &
, Northwestern thatiJTiginatod the idea , they
proeoodcd to talio rovonpe on that company
' by civlng nil their business to the other
linos" This caused the Chicago & Noath-
western to back out of the agreement , which
is now null and void.
Nowmnn Will Rosicn.
It is now authentically announced that on
Juno 1 , W. H. Nowmau , third vice-president
of the Missouri Pacific , will tender his resig
nation , after an effective service in railroad
circles of many years. That his resignation
has long been before President Goiild tor
action has been generally suspected. At a
meeting of the Trans-Missouri association ,
hold in Kansas City , Wednesday the suspicion
was confirmed. An Omaha official who was
present states that Mr. Nowmun informed
his constituents that it would bo the last
mooting in which ho would represent the
Missouri Paciflc. His successor is not yet
known. _

Nearly Thirty-seven Millions of Them

It has teen computed that between
30,000,000 and 37,000,000 of babies tire
born into tlio world ouch your , says the
Leeds Mercury. The rate of production
la therefore about seventy a minute , or
rather more than one for every boat of
the clock. With the ono-a-mfnuto cal
culation every render is familiar , but It
is not every one who stops to calculate
what this means when it comes to a
year's supply. And it will probably ,
therefore , startle a good many pornoiiH
to llnd on the authority of a writer In
the hospital that could the infants of a
year bo ranged in a line in cradles so von
deep they would go around the globe.
Wo have the ingenious conclusion altio
that supposing the little ones to grow
up and the ecxos to bo about
equally divided , we should have an
army a hundred times as largo as the
forces of the British empirewith a wife
in addition to every soldier. The same
writer looks at the matter in a still more
picturesque light. Ha imagines the
babies being carried past a given point
in their mothers' charge one by ono and
the procession being Icept up continu
ously night and day until the last comer
in the twelvemonth has passed by. A
Bufllciontly liberal rate of speed is al
lowed , but oven with those Dabies-in-
arms going past twenty a minute , the
roar wing olllcor would only have seen
a sixth part of the infantine , host file
onward by the time ho had boon a year
at his post. In other words , tlio bubo
that haa to bo carried when the work
begun would bo able to toddlu onward
itself when a moro fraction of its com
rades had reached the saluting post ;
and whoa the year's supply of babies
was tapering to a eloso , there would bo
a rear guard not of infantshut of romp
ing boys and girls. They would have
passed , in factout , of the maternal arms
into the hands of the school teacher
Every moment of nearly seven year
would bo required to complete this
grand parade of those little ones tiiat
in the course of a twelvemonth begin
to play their part in the lirst ago of
