Y.. are adv"rtised for sale by the Adams Express Company licM Saturday to satisfy a claim of tiO for trans portation from Goshen. N. Y.. to this. city. It is customary to require an advance payment on such i-onsignments. but Mr. Browne had shipped a nun:-ha* of mares here last November, and when in the tint week in January lie loaded this lot for Lexington he found that the rate he had paid in November ajtaa excessive. While the express companys representatives at Ooshen were trying to unravel the red ■tape Hie horses were Kent on their way to Lexington. When they arrived here agent Grinstead permitted them to go to Foster Helms farm, their destination, but under orders from the east they were held by legal process subject to the companys claim. Mennwbile the row between Mr. Browne and the company grew warmer, resulting in the •order to sell them. Thomas F. Kclley. who represents Mr. Browne here, said tonight that the sale ■would not take place and that the freight bii! would be paid. The excess company has not been able to get the pedigrees of tin- mares am! ■MM been living to secure them at Goshen.
