8 THEY CAN'T BEAT HIM IN THE MUD. Lucky Dog Ran Circles Around His Field in the Race yesterday. CHARLES A WAS FORTUNATE. Old Wild Oats Had a New Lease of Life and Won the Steeplechase. The track was muddy yesterday but did not impair the sport, the races all being well contested. There were six races on the card, three being taken by favorites and three by outsiders in the betting. The mile race gave Lucky Dog, the giant sou of Parebin, an opportunity to show what a really great horse he is in muddy goinir— without doubt the best in America. The long price of 9 to 10 was obtainable against him in the ring. There was little to choose in the price for the place between Royal Flush and Thornhill. While at the post Lucky Dog gave an exhibition of his temper, which is not the best, unseating lii> rider, Walker, during one of his antics and stepping on him. He luckily escaped injury. Thornhill on the outside beat the flag a couple of lengths and led the favorite past the quarter and do...

For another day the Wassemian-Slosa dragged along under the spectacled eyes of Judge Troutt. and but little was drawn from the witnesses except a mass of statistics regarding the stock of the cor poration, who owned each share and how he came into possession. It was not told who received the stock which was donated for the purposes of legislation, and but one of the influential people of Washington who received the stock was mentioned. This was Stephen J. Field. He owned 200 shares of the stock, but soon after he came into possession he was notihed of an assessment of $6 a share which had been levied upon it. He had no use for the stock after that, and instead of paying his Lewis Gerstle. [Sketched from life by a "Call" artist.) $1200 he sold the stock.

They Will To-Day Inspect the Advantages That City Has to Offer. Isaac Uphain, one of the members of the board of directors of the valley road, s<yd yesterday that the idea of the Call in en deavoring to obtain an expression from shippers as to their intention regarding the disposition of their business is a good one. "Anything which tends to work up public sentimentand give the people an indication of the ben erit which will follow the construc tion of the road is certainly a move in the right direction," said he. "This is a matter of education, and while many of tbe peo ple may understand the importance of the road the plan of keeping the subject con stantly in view will have the effect of •waking everybody up and bringing all the laggards into camp.
