LEADS JACK NUNNALLY HOME IN THE FASTEST SEVEN FURLONGS RUN AT OAKLAND. Bainvoko Wins a Race for Schrcibcr Jockey Powers Guides Three Winners Many Going to Santa Anita. San Francisco. Cal.. November 19. Hiltlrcth pulled out nnotlicr record-breaking race horse from lils great tst rintr for today's feature at Oakland. Tills time it was Restigouchei which was selected to represent liim. With half a dozen of the flower of the sprinting division on the const to oppose him at seven furlongs- Resligouche found his work cut out with a vengeance and only succeeded in landing the coveted prize in a hard drive from Jack Nun-jially after smashing the California record for the distance and having1 all the sood luck jwssible in the race. Taking a line from the betting, the winner's most formidable adversary was Scweli. and he was left at the iost. The ring harked back to the Hildretli gelding's inglorious debut on Tuesday and took lilortie9 witli him. notwithstanding Ills recent phenomenally fast private trials, and lost heavily by its temerity, as the big contingent of eastern operators here accepted all the evens 011 offer with avidity. Tony Faust, another Hildretli entry at odds-on. met defeat in the mile and an eighth selling race which preceded the running of the Scoggan Handicap, the owner losing a small fortune, over the result. Don Enrique, the second choice, proved an unexpectedly easy winner, mainly because of experimental waiting tactics. And, even though his horse won. owner Ellison was of the opinion that jockey Kirseii-baum had moved up prematurely in the race. Following' so closely on Madman's improvement yesterday the stewards watched Figent, from the , tahie stable, closely during the lirst race and the failhre of the Belmont cast-oft to make a respectable tJinwing when a 1 to 2 choice made a disagreeable impression on the oflicials. The decision of the lifth race was marked by an enlivening incident. Walter Miller scored bis lirst saddle success of the local season 011 Kelowna. backed from 10 to 5 to 1. His was a hard earned and vigorously achieved victory and the 5,000 spectators present were very generous with their applause. During his walk back to the jockeys' quarters, the former champion jockey was compelled to doff bis cap repeatedly in acknowledgement of the cheering throng. Overhanging clouds indicating rain had no deterrent effect on today's attendance, the splendid card serving to attract race-goers to the beautiful race course. There was no interruption in the present successful run of winning favorites, three winning today. Vincent Powers was the chief feature in a jockey way, with three wins. Sainvoke, Kestigouche and Frank Lubbock, -to his credit. 'Hie lirst named was the lirst horse to carry the colors of Darner Schreilier to victory during the present meeting, and did it so impressively as to suggest a promising future career for the shapely brown filly. Grant Hugh Browne wired Secretary Treat today relinquishing the stable room already engaged, as he had abandoned the idea of coming out here with a stable of horses to race. Trainer 11. K. Howell will leave for Santa Anita with ten of Thomas 11. Williams' horses next Saturday. S. C Hildretli has made arrangements to ship sixteen of his racers to the same destination next Sunday in charge of trainer Dave Leary. A. F. Dayton will also join the exodus south with bis big stable, including Jack Nuunally, Neva Lee and Husky. T. H. Griffin arrived today. Grifliu brought twenty four coming two-year-olds to the coast. A dozen each are quartered at Oakland and Santa Anita. Mose Goldblatt's Mortiboy died this morning from a cause described as shinning fever. Law and the Race Tracks LAW AND THE RACE TRACKS. New York. November 19. The demurrer taken by William Engcman. Christopher Fitzgerald and John G. Cavanagli. ollicials of the Brighton Beacli Racing Association, to the terms of the indictments found against them last summer was argued before the justices of the Appellate Division of the Supreme Court in Brooklyn and decision was reserved. Incidentally Judge Dike of the County Court was criti-sized by Justices Woodward and Jenks because lie had shown a disposition to pass the: matter up to the Appellate Division without siftiurr the right and wrong of it. Justice Woodward stopped Assistant District Attorney Filler, who argued against the demurrer, having bad charge of all matters pertaining to the enforcement In Kings County of the Hart-Agnew law. and asked if tiie case should be heard in that, court. He said the County Court should have treated the matter more thoroughly before allowing such, an important case to go up on appeal. Mr. Filler was sure that the matter was very important and needed immediate decision, and was just as sure that Judge Dike bad not intended to shirk his duty in passing up the case, and did so only with the intention of expediting matters. Ex-Corpora t ion Counsel William O.' Do Witt, appearing with Joseph S. Auerbach for the defendants, concurred with Mr. Elder in so far as he had gone and was just as eager to have the matter decided. Justice Jenks then said that he had the highest opinion of Judge Dike as a man and as a judge, but that ho. ought not to have shirked the original opinion. He quoted Judge Dike's brief answer to the demurrer: "I'm not going to decide this matter: 1 will give no opinion: let the Appellate Division decide." Mr. De Witt thought that Judge Dike had precedent on his side and that his refusal to pass upon the new points simply indicated modesty. "Suppose I was modest." said Justice Jenks, "and sent up my cases to the Court of Appeals. We have a right to see the opinion of the judge in this matter." Finally it was decided to hear argument as to the sense of the terms used in the indictment, which charges the defendants in part with Iteing tiie owners, agents and superintendents of the device and apparatus commonly railed "advance information." and that they owned, procured and permitted that device and apparatus to be used by many persons for and in lookmakiiig. and for and in the calculating and laying and quoting of odds on horses'. Mr. Elder said that the words "device and apparatus" used in the statutes applies to anything owned and used to advance gambling. Justice Jenks asked if a newspaper was a device and apparatus for gambling and Mr. Elder replied that it was if owned and used to advance it. In answer to a question about the bringing of indictments lie said that one could be brought against any one, and if in the proper form would not be demurrable even though the charges contained were false. He said that even a religious paiier could be indicted and that the owning or using of advance information or of a poker chip is indictable. Mr. Auerbach said that the happenings since the passage of the Hart-Agnew bill have been little short of scandalous, that the polieo have treated the decisions of the courts with flippancy, that men have ' been arrested for mere betting, that men had been turned from the race tracks because they were known to lie gamblers at one time, that the police 1 have established a reign of terror and that men were 1 being indicted on the shallowest pretenses. Betting ' at common law, he said, is enforceable as a contract. 1 and the Hart-Agnew law does not make advance information a gambling device. He said that the defendants might as well have been Indicted for 1 handing out newspapers that publish such iuforuia-: lion. Great Broodmares Abroad GREAT BROODMARES ABROAD.

NEW ORLEANS CONDITIONS. REFORM ELEMENT STILL BITTERLY OPPOSED TO RACING WITH BETTING OF ANY KIND. Pertinent Correspondence and Statements - Evoked by Hcaslip's Abortive Registered Betting Scheme of Last Month, Many persons still hope on that iu some way it will he brought about that racing over the New Orleans tracks will he resumed in the course of the nearby winter. Of the desirability of such an occurrence in the estimation of turfmen there can be no doubt. But the difficulties seem insurmountable. A month or so ago S. F. Heaslip was confident that he could carry on racing at City Park without any serious home opposition. But when the matter was put to the test he found out that he was badlr mistaken and that the clement that had secured the passage of the Locke law was vigilantly determined to enforce it. Therefore he gave up his plan completely. There has been no change since In any particular worth consideration, and some correspondence that passed after Mr. Heaslip outlined his plan Is just as pertinent now as it was then. This correspondence was brought almut when Rev. Beverley Warner questioned some of Heaslip's statements and asked attorney Chandler C. Luzenberg for an opinion. Rev. Warner's statement of the situation was: "Since the passage of the Locke bill the air has been filled with rumors as to the -prospect of attempts to evade it. or get around it. by the racing associations. "Recently an interview has been published by Mr. Heaslip giving the public a frank statement as to just what process he and his silent partners propose to follow in continuing horse racing in thi3 city. "A number of inquiries have been made as to what will he the position of the originators and supporters of the Locke bill if Mr. Heaslip attempts to put into practice his scheme of registered betting with a 'rake off' of live iter cent, 'for the purpose of protecting the public.' "In Mr. Heaslip's published plan he makes two statements, which, on behalf of the friends of the Locke bill, I beg to question. "He says he is a supporter of the Locke bill, and that iu exercising a censorship of the betting he places the proposition 'upon the lines desired by those who were interested in the passing of the Locke bill.' "Mr. Heaslip must have very novel Ideas as to the definition of words. "His plan is a palpable and undisguised evasiou of the spirit of the Locke bill, and I believe, although this is a legal point which I am not competent to decide, a violation of the letter of the law also. If inviting wagers at a commission, of five per cent, is not a device 'to encourage, promote, aid or assist.' it Is hard to imagine what would be considered one. "I have full confidence that the proper authorities will take every necessary step in due time to guard the provisions of the Locke bill." Following is the reply forwarded to Dr. Warner, in which attorney Luzenberg expressed bis opinion: New Orleans, La., October 22. 1908. To Dr. Beverley Warner, New Orleans. La. Dear Dr. Warner: In answer to your request that I give you my opinion as to whether the following plan of betting at the race tracks, as published in the press as the plan that would be In operation in this city, would be a violation of Act No. 57 of 190S. known as the Locke bill. I state: The plan, as published, is as follows: "No gambling or betting, except between individuals, will be permitted on the premises. No bets, even between individuals, will be allowed on the premises except on the condition that each deposit the amount of their wager in cash with the association at the time the wager is made. "The association will deduct from the aggregate amount 5 per cent, for the purpose of protecting the public and fixing the responsibility of individual betting. The records of the court show that tbi individual wagering on the old Mctairio course was attended by difference, which often resulted In lawsuits, which, under this method, is obviated. "Irresponsible persons, track officials or such persons as the association sees fit to prevent wagering will not be allowed to wager, placing the proposition upon the lines, in my estimation, desired by those who were interested in the passing ot tho Locke bill. That is. we arc not assisting, aiding, encouraging or abetting wagering, for the reason that the association penalizes it. "Act No. 57 of 190S is as follows: " 'Act No. 57, an act to prohibit gambling on horse races by the operation of betting books. French : mutuel pooling devices, auction pools, or any other device, and to provide penalties for the violation of tho provisions thereof. " 'Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of Louisiana: That any person who. either as . agent, owner, officer or employe shall. In any room, hall, house or any inclosure. or upon any track, path, road or course, whether within or without an inclosure In this state, engage in encouraging, promoting, aiding or assisting in the operation of a betting book, or a French mutuel pooling device, upon any kind of horse race or races, or in selling 1 auction pools upon any horse, race which are hereby declared to be gambling, or shall, by any other device, encourage, promote, aid or assist any person ' or -persons to bet or wager upon a horse race or ' races, run or trotted or paced, within this state or elsewhere, shall be guilty of a misdemeanor and upon conviction shall 'be fined not less than $100. n6r (Continued on second page). NEW ORLEANS CONDITIONS. (Continued from first page.) more than $500, and imprisoned for a period of not less than six or more than twelve months.' "Act No. 57 of 1908 does not prohibit personal wagers. It does piohiblt the engaging in, encouraging, promoting, aiding or assisting in the keeping of a betting book, of a French mutuel pooling device, or in selling auction pools, and It expressly provides that if any person, either as agent, owner, officer or employe, shall by any other device encourage, promote, aid or assist any person or persons to bet or wager upon a horse race, that such person shall be guilty of a misdemeanor, etc. In my opinion, the plan submitted would be a device to encourage, promote, aid and assist persons to bet upon a horse race, and would violate the statute. "In reference as to whether a person who would quote prices and lay wagers with various individuals, quoting the prices from memory and depositing the money and recording the bet with some representative of the association as a stakeholder, would be engaging in the operation of a betting book within contemplation of the act. I state, in my opinion, such a person or persons would violate the act, I remain. Very truly ''yours. "Chandler C. Luzenberg, "Attorney-at-Law." One of the members of the Anti-Race Track Committee made tha following statement, also glvlnjs his opinion on the subject, explaining the spirit and intent of the Locke bill: "Regarding the proposed racing season, beginning In December, as indicated by Mr. Heasllp, who represents a 'hoIdlOK company' of local makeup, It would seem from published accounts that there is to be a device arranged by which' wagers are to be deposited With an agent of the management, and that a fee will be expected for the banking of the money, or the booking of the contract. "The idea that prevailed with those who advocated-a bill for the suppression- of gambling at the race tracks, was succinctly stated in the bill, now a law. "This Locke bill was opposed by n compromise measure known as the Cordill bill: both were voted upon, and the will of the people of Louisiana was expressed through their representatives in the passage of the Locke bill, which both sides agreed would do ;away with toookmaklng. parl-mutuel or any other device that could aid or promote gambling on horse racing. "I do not believe the people who advocated the Locke bill will accept any compromise of the principles contained In that measure. If racing can be conducted as the games of baseball, football, etc., are carried on, there can be no objection to the 'sport of kings.' " Another of the workers for the Locke bill, said regarding the Heasllp plan: "I have read with much Interest the published; statement of Mr. Heasllp that he and his associates intend to have winter racing in New Orleans, and! explaining the method of betting which he intends to inaugurate, and I am clearly of the opinion that the plan that he outlines would be a plain violation of the Locke bill. "I do not believe that the people of Louisiana would for a moment submit to any such construction of the new law, and I am confident that any attempt ! to carry out Mr. Heasllp's scheme would result most, disastrously to all those connected with It. If the penalty were a fine only. It Is possible they might make the attempt, but the Locke bill distinctly states that the violation of this statute is punishable by both fine and imprisonment, and I do not think that the racing people will care to face such, a prospect." From all of this It is plain that there Is but one way In which racing can be carried on at New Or-lenns. That is to give a meeting that will be attended with expensive litigation in an effort to over-, throw the Locke law on the ground of unconstitu-tiouality. If some one is ready to advance the necessary money a start, at least, can be made. Just at present it is doubtful if any one can be found ready to risk the big sum required. Gives Credit to Americans GIVES CREDIT TO AMERICANS. A turf writer in the London Sportsman has a word to say" for American breeders, as follows: "Breeders claim that their annual sales have been considerably disturbed by the sudden hostile action displayed 'by the New York legislature, aided and abetted by Governor Hughes. Such claims cannot well bo refuted, although the part English breeders play in seeking future restrictions may not be altogether magnanimous. It must not be forgotten that ko far each importer of American yearlings this eason. with possibly one exception, lias invested large sums of money in England in purchasing sires ami broodmares. If the balances were struck in their stud farm ledgers there can be no doubt that the sums paid for English parent stock would far exceed the amounts received from Messrs. Tattersall for yearling returns. Under these conditions, during periods of legislative Interference in America, when yearlings have' little or no public sale ralue in Kentucky or New York, it appears to lie unreasonable to attempt to 'close the door' by establishing import 1 mrrlers." ' 1 1 ' 1 1 Many Turf Pilgrims Return MANY TURF PILGRIMS RETURN. New York. November 19. Eugene Leigh, the American horse trainer, who lias been eight years in France in charge of a public stable, returned yes-terday by the North German Lloyd steamship Kron-prinzessin Cecilie. He said his horses had won 870 races in that period. He regards the French system of breeding as the best in the -world. The government encourages the raising of thoroughbreds and all the horses used in the army and by the farmers lmve a thoroughbred strain, He said he believed that if the United States would take uy the business of breeding horses, the army and the American agriculturists would have tiie liucst animals in the world. Mr. Leigh said lie had no doubt that the so-called anti-racing law of this state eventually would be beneficial. Racing would decline for a while, but would revivp later and would be conducted on a more substantial and equitable basis. Jockeys Fred and Johnny Taral, Fred Spencer and Michael '.Miles were also passengers on the Kronprin-zessin. Fred Taral has been riding for Baron Springer in Austria-Hungary and. although ho lias won less prizes than in other years. lie lias captured some big ones, including one worth $24,000. Tlic racing law here, he said, bail made America the laughing stock of the sportsmen of Europe. Johnny Taral said the report that jockeys were treated like dogs iu Europe was not true: they were really treated better there than iu America. He predicted that the racing law would drive the whole tribe of good American jockeys to Europe. Spencer, who has been riding in Germany for the last two years for Count Kenken. said lie would not visit his home in California, but would spend two months here and then return to Germany. One of the effects of the New York racing law. he said, was to stimulate the sale of American horses in Germany. Miles, who rides for the Edgie brothers in Austria-Hungary, said he had won forty-two races last season. Horses at Montgomery Park HORSES AT MONTGOMERY PARK. Memphis, Tcnn.. November 19. The lirst of several hundred thoroughbreds, owned by western and eastern owners and booked for winter quarters at Montgomery Park, reached the track today, embracing the racing strings of William Wallace and Albert Simons.

Mr. Holland was delighted with the -prospects of racing here next winter and looks for the largest crowd of easterners that have ever visited southern California. Gene Elrod got in last night from Latonia and will hare full cliargo of the betting ring. An eastern contingent of four carloads of horses came in this morning.

Restoration of Captain Rice Popular RESTORATION OF CAPTAIN RICE POPULAR. Hot Springs. Ark., November 19. The restoration of Captain R. It. Rice, of Varner, Ark., to good standing in Western Jockey Club circles was received as important news here today. Captain Rice and Senator Amis, author of the anti-racing bill in the last senate, were close friends and the bill was introduced as a retaliatory measure by the now dead senator, who believed his personal friend was beiug wronged in being denied the privilege of racing on Western Jockey Club tracks. Captain Rice was a constituent of Senator Amis and had many friends in the legislature that passed the bill. He is a close friend of United States Senator Jeff Davis and his influence in bringing about a repeal or modification of the anti-pool selling bill iu his home state is regarded as a veluable aid in the next legislative tight on the question. Sam Hildreth's Band of Cripples SAM HILDRETH'S BAND OF CRIPPLES. San Francisco. Cal.. November 19. -S. C. Hildretli is a bit disturbed over the condition of his crack three-year-old. King James. The colt has gone sore in his knees and Hildretli may have to let up on him for a time. King James is the liorse with which Hildretli has hope of winning the Burns Handicap. Hildretli has little hope of getting a race out of Peter Quince, another of his cracks, for months. One of Peter Quince's tendons is iu a very suspicious condition and Hildretli fears that he will break him down if he persists in training him. Nealon is galloping along soundly and' the indications are that ho will lie a useful liorse when the mud comes. Mee-lick's lameness has disappeared, confirming Hildretli' s theory that it was a temporary condition due to a stone bruise. : . Mr. Corrigan at Lexington MR. CORRIGAN AT LEXINGTON. Lexington, Ky., November 19. Edward Corrigan returned today from Chicago and is busy in preparation for the sale of his horses, which will be held at his farm, about six miles from this city, next Wednesday. Mr. Corrigan has nothing to add to what has already been printed concerning the possibility of racing at New Orleans, but Intimated that he might have some positive announcement to make in the coming two or three days. 1 ' ' Page 2 DAILY RACING FORM PUBLISHED DAILY EXCEPT MONDAY.

Hamilton, who will be the presiding judge at Santa Anita Park, left Chicago last night on his way to L03 Angeles. Fourteen horses that H. T. Griffin shipped from New York last week have arrived at Oakland, where they will race during the winter. Not a single American horseman, so far as is known, has shipped his stable to Mexico. Entries for the Mexican Derby close on December 1. Tommy Claire, brother of the former superintendent of the Brighton Beach track, is training the horses of Max Hirsch. Five of the ten horses in the string are yearlings. The race meeting at Salt Lake City. Utah, came to an end last Saturday and most of the owners, horses and jockeys have departed for El Paso, Texas, to await the opening of the meeting there. The four-year-old filly. Rosy Light, belonging to V, H. Terry, broke down so hopelessly in both front legs In her race last Friday at Oakland that her owner will not even attempt to get her back to the races, A turfman of long experience remarked that Kirschbaum has improved more than any boy oh the coast, and under the guidance of Johnny Mlllln there Is no reason why this improvement should not continue. Meellck. which went lame last Thursday, was given light walking exercise and appears to be Improved. Hildreth thinks that the trouble Is nothing more than a stone bruise and that the horse will be all right in a few1 days. James Rowe believes that the colt, Wamba. will be one of the most promising of the Keene starters in next year's English Derby. Wamba, a son of Ben Brush Cap and Bells, only started three times here this season and is still a maiden. Rowe has already predicted that If Wamba and John E. Mad- , den's Sir Martin should both sturt In, the Derby, the Keene colt would beat the son of Ogden. Jockey C. Koerner will accompany Dave Leary With the Santa Anita division of Hildreth's horses to Los Angeles. Hildreth is of the opinion that Koerner will have an easier task in reducing weight in southern California than at Oakland. Report has it that Richard Croker is enthusiastic over his Irish estate, Glencairn, and tells with pride that his horses, by their winnings and the high prices they bring, make the place self-sustaining. He declares that his turf prospects for next year are excellent. Gravesend track Is a deserted place this year compared to what it was at this time last year. According to the. superintendent of the track there are .not more than seventy horses In the stables, while last year found over 200 there. The track is in fine condition and the horses working over It show fast time. Joe Stern, who was suspended last winter because Of his connection with the running of the horses Tommy Ahearn and Mrs. 6'Farrell. witnessed the Oakland races the other day and told Inquiring acquaintances that his suspension had been lifted. Stern expects to take up "Mitre and his other horses Immediately. John C. Ferrlss, Jr. sued Frank P. Wilson, in Covington, Ky., to recover $200 alleged to be due on a note. Race horses owned by the defendant, and known by the names of Rebel Queen, Don Irent, Tom McAfee, Pete Vinegar and Rickey, were attached at the Latonia track yesterday by constable Ben Biedenhorn. W. W. Finn purchased the contract on Jockey M. Nelson from Hogan & Rlnehart for the reported price of $2,000 at Salt Lake City. Utah. The boy heads the list of riders at Salt Lake, having ridden forty-one winners in twenty-seven days. Finn will take the !boy with him to Arcadia. Nelson Is a lightweight. Dr. J. S. Gardner is very enthusiastic over the prospects of the coming Santa Anita Park meeting. He declares that the racing public will witness some grand sport and that the stakes, which received over 1.600 nominations, including names of some of the very best horses racing, will attract as much attention as the big races on the New York tracks. Ben Levy, of Kansas City, who has been making the Texas circuit this fall and who is well known by racing people everywhere, says he sees no reason why a winter meeting would not be a great success in Texas, as It would bring a lot of people there. Mr. Levy is In business In Kansas City, but finds so many of the Missouri crowd down there that he feels very much at home. During the running of the first race at Houston Wednesday, Yaddo, with jockey Lawrence up, ran into the fence and fell, breaking his leg, resulting in his death. Lawrence escaped unhurt in this fall, but iu a later race was badly Injured when Workman, on which he had the mount, came to grief. Workman may never be able to race again. An aftermath to the Yaddo case is the investigation being conducted by the officials relative to the condition of the horse, it being alleged that stimulants were administered to the horse before the race.

The last really uroat stake which was landed over this race the Osarewitch was won by Kosobery, and two years earlier F. Swindell had tacked the Truth kcMIiik to win ?500,000 br a lony course of dexterous but perfectly unscrupulous inanciiverinjr. llr. Swindell won a Iuifje stake over Diileihella. whieli had been tried ci certainty, and she came in alone. There was an immense win over Lecturer. Lord Hastings himself clearing $100,000, while the total winnings of "the party" were not less than $C"i0.-000. When the weights for the Cesarowitch of 1S0( were published Lord Hastings considered that his horses had been unfairly treated by Admiral Rous, and they were all struck out. Lecturer was not included in the lot. as he had been nominated for eome reason or other by the well-known Peter 'Wilkinson. Everything in those days was utterly chaotic and hugger-mugger in the department of ownership and partnership, -but under the present rules Lecturer would surely have been disqualified. The most sensational race was that won by Lioness, as it led to unpleasant developments which had far-reaching results. Colonel Ouseley Iliggins. who was one of the most popular members of the Jockey Club set. had been for some time on intimate terms with James (Merry. He was consulted as to the running of Mr. Merry's horses and was finite behind the scenes in the stable tactics. Lioness was .systematically "steadied" with a view to her winning the Cesarewitch. the coup having 'liecn for several mouths in contemplation, but on this occasion not only was Colonel Iliggins kept in the dark, but he maintained that he had been deliberately misled and that, not only had he been put oft backing the mare Iiiinself. but he had prevented many of his acquaintances from supporting her. Mr. Merry, as was said of a celebrated turf tactician, had been "as sly as a fox and as mute as a mackerel." The fact was that he gave his commission to a shrewd man. who undertook it only on receiving a most solemn promise that not a word should be uttered in recommendation of "Lioness until the numbers were up. Mr. Merry carefully held Ms toDguo and although Lioness was obviously being backed for a great deal of money, neither Colonel Higgiiis nor anyone else received a particle of encouragement from the owner. When the numbers were hoisted. Mr. Merry looked out for Colonel Jliggins, hut in those days it was easy for men to miss each other at Newmarket just before such a big race. One would b in the Rirdcage, and the other might be at the ring, or in the crowd of horsemen, or in a carriage by the ropes. Mr. Merry met Lord Stamford, who was galloping to the ring, and begged him, if he saw Colonel Iliggins, to tell him to be sure to make Lioness a winner. However, the tip did not arrive in time, and directly after Lioness had won easily. Colonel Iliggins galloped up to Mr. Merry's carriage, almost speechless with fury, and assailed him publicly with a rich flow of invective, including such epithets as are commonly associated with Ananias and Barabbas. Lord Stamford, who came up during the attack, vainly attempted to explain away matters, but Colonel Higgins was implacable, and vowed that only "satisfaction" would compensate for his grievances. Mr. Merry did not , relish the prospect -of standing' opposite a bloodthirsty Irishman Who was known to be a. sure shot, and later in the day Lord Stamford was seat to confer with Colonel Higgins with much the same secret instructions as wore given by Lord Steyne to Mr. Wenbam when he deputed him to meet Colonel Itawdou Crawley. Happily, the offer was referred for final decision to Admiral Rons and Mr. George Payne, whose strong common sense and fine tact enabled them to patch up what Lord Beacons-field has defined as "a bad tempered understanding." The episode caused a great fuss at Newmarket, but it was kept very quiet, as people were not in those days so fond of proclaiming quarrels and scandals as they are now. It was this unfortunate affair which prevented Mr. Merry from being elected a member of tho Jockey Club. A few years afterwards, his name was to be put forward, but Admiral Rous and Lord George Manners, advised the proposer and seconder to withdraw the candidate, as it was absolutely certain that he would be blackballed. Admiral Rons was sensibly averse to subjecting a man of Mr. Merry's position on the turf to a public snub, as it might very likely have caused him to sell his stud and give up racing altogether. In those days the names of candidates for the Jockey Club were published in the Calendar before tho ballot, so if-a man was blackballed every one knew of his failure. There was a great to-do about 1S07 when the late Duke of Hamilton was blackballed for the Jockey Club, find not only did the Avelkin ring with the indignation of tho candidate's friends, but Admiral Rous pointed out the absurdity and folly of rejecting a candidate of unexceptionable position who raced 01: a very large scale. At that time, however, there was a positive craze for blackballing at Newmarket, and a certain clique vowed to keep out of the club any candidate connected with "the city." Lord Glasgow nearly always put in a black bail. and for years one of he great objects of his life was to keep Colonel Forester out of the Jockey Club. Match Racing in Old-Time England: Vast Suns Won and Lest over Such Events-Novel Combination Matches MATCH RACING IN OLD-TIME ENGLAND. Vast Sums Won and Lest Over Such Events Novel Combination Matches. Matches are almost unknown in the horse racing world of today, but they were common enough in the good old days before the sorry mating of racing with business. A match was a truly sporting event: stakes were heavy, vast sums were bet and the excitement of the race would stir the whole nation. So much property was lost by tlie "gentlemen of the south" to the "gentlemen of the north" over a match run at Newmarket at the dawn of the eighteenth century, says the London Evening Standard, that the statute of Queen Anne was enacted to restrict lwtting. Vet in 1731) a Captain Shafto Avon 80.000 by winning a bet that he would not complete fifty miles in two hours with as many horses as he pleased. And in 1S0C the snorting and gallant Colonel Mellish lost bets ,to the tuue of $100,000 in a match for $10.000 his horse breaking down when victory seemed assured. When in 1790 Sir II. Vane-Tempest's Hambletonian was matched against Diamond for 15,000 at Newmarket, the place was so crowded with visitors that not a bed was to be had within twenty miles. One hundred thousand people assembled to see a lady ride in a match at Yorke" in 1S01 against a sportsman of celebrity and $1,000,000 was said at the least to depend on the result. The lady's horse nearly twenty years old was beaten. The last of these memorable sporting events to arouse an Interest through the whole country took place in 1S51 when Lord Eglington's Flying Dutchman beat Lord Zetland's Voltlgeur at York. A great deal of money has changed hands over matches in which riders have undertaken to cover twenty miles in the hour, a feat often performed successfully. A great performance was that of a featherweight jockey who. at Newmarket ia 1780, rode a horse twenty-three miles in two or three minutes under the hour. The Karl of March "Old Q." was on the winning side of a sporting match for .5,000 in 1750. when "a carriage with four running wheels and a person in it" was to be drawn by four horses nineteen miles in an hour. The match was won in fifty-throe minutes and twenty-seven seconds, and a grand sight it must have been to see the four horses and their riders setting up such a record. A great ride was that of a Mr. Liiiscombe, who, in 1S24, carried ninety miles in four hours and fifty-three minutes on eight horses. That famous all round sportsman. Squire Osbaldeston, performed a marvelous feat in 1S.",1 when, having undertaken to ride 200 miles in ten hours for S5.000 a side, to say nothing of bets, he finished in eight hours and thirty-nine minutes "as gay as a lark." Ho was forty-four years of age and weighed over eleven stone, yet one of his twenty-eight horses carried him four miles in eight minutes. For several riders the claim lias been made that they have ridden 1,000 miles in 1,000 successive hours: and in 1S01 J. Davies drove one horse in a dogcart 1.000 miles in nineteen days, an average of fifty-two miles a day. Some very old matches find a place in the annals of the turf and tho road, lias not Newmarket Heath seen "geese races" in the days of Lords Rockingham and Orford? At York, in the middle of the eighteenth century, a trick rider rode one mile standing upright on horseback for S500; lie was allowed three minutes and rode home with eighteen seconds in hand. At the end of the century an officer trotted fifteen miles from Chelmsford to Dnnniow in 1 hour 9 minutes, his face to his horse's tail. In 1S00 a naval officer rode a blind horse around Sheerness race course for a wager, the con ditions being that he should not touch the reins with his bands. This, however, did not prevent him from having the reins fastened to his feet. To walk fifty miles, drive fifty miles and rido fifty miles in twenty-four consecutive hours was a task that Captain Polhill easily accomplished in 1S2G with nearly live hours to spare. In our own time, 1801, J. 15. Radeliffe succeeded in rowing a quarter of a mile and in swimming, running, cycling and riding a horse the same distance all within the space of fifteen minutes. Merely to think of such a feat is enough to make one tired. Prefers England to France PREFERS ENGLAND TO FRANCE. Tom Welsh is one returning traveler from the other side that is not so sanguine over the chances for American horsemen in France. "I bad an idea i might like to try my hand there." said Welsh, "but I'm cured. Not that I don't like the country and the raciug, but there's nothing in it for the American trainer. It's all training public stables there, and it costs a lot of money to get a good place that is conveniently located. Expenses all through are perhaps not much higher than here, but I think I should much prefer England to train in."
