STARE FOR INQUISITOR
GETS UP IX LAST STRIDE.
four Favorites and a Split Choice
Win at Jamaica.
Inquisitor, by a gallant and determined rush
through the stretch, got up In time to beat
Ormonde's Right a head for the Montague
Stakes at Jamaica yesterday. It was a popular
victory, a* the three-year-old went to the post
favorite at '.* to 5. and the crowd, on Its feet.

pnj^lK-n. together with Oxford. Eugenia Burch

Brooklyn Handicap winner; Phil Finch, the bo
ca'.k-'i SjT«>nby of New Orleans: Ormonde's
ftiglit. inquit-itor. which had won two races at
the ■Hjntfry .ti^ Hermitage.
The nee was for three-year-olds and upward
at welpfct for **''• and the distance was one
mil* and a sixteenth. Miller had the mount on
Inquisitor, and In spite of the fact that the In
fpector B. coll had never raced over a distance
he tra« maw- the favorite, it was whispered
«lv>ut iluit he had outworked Merry Uark. the
winner of the Excelsior Handicap, and this was
quite enouph for those who knew the stable
secrets. l»*!hi had a strong following and the
other thre« were all played

breaker, was flat footed when the barrier was

with Ormonde's Right in close attendance, while
Delhi v* i being buffeted around as Cochran
tdfd to go up on the rail. This seemed to dis
courage the Ben Brush horse, and he was beaten
then and there. In the run up the baekstretch
Hermitage took command, while Inquisitor
dropped hack to third place in close quarters on
the rail. This order was maintained to the far
tarn, when Hermitage began to tire, and Or
m*nde"s Right took command, closely followed
by Phil Finch, who rushed up as if he would
come home by himself. He hung, however, when
ie r.i to Ormonde's Right, and the last named
£rew away, when straightened out for home, and
Appeared to have the race in hand until In
quisitor loomed up on the outside. Shaw saw
ihe danger and sat down to ride Ormonde's
Bight out, but Inquisitor was not to be denied,
and be got up in the last few strides. Phil
Finch vac a respectable third.
Milter was lauded by many for a clever piece
of riding, and he certainly deserved all credit
for a strong finish, but those who watched the
race closely claimed that he was lucky to win,
because of an ill judged ride on the backstretch.
In all probability, however. Miller did well to
five his mount a breathing space on the back
etretch and not force Inquisitor .to make the
running.
Four pronounced favorites and a split choice
won. m that the form players for the second
day in succession had the best of their argu
ment with the layers. The favorites to score
were Yorkshire Lad. Pater, Inquisitor and Lord
Of the Forest, with Tanager, which closed equal
favorite with Banasa In the last race, won by a
fcead from Economy. Round Dance, at 20 to 1,
was the other winner.
Pater, the star of the Bennings spring meet
tog, won the six furlongs handicap in a com
non gallop. Esoteric, which was unbeaten In
fes three starts last year, was the second choice
lnttls race, and while h«> had to be ridden out
to earn third money, his race was a fair one for
lite first start.
; ONeil had a narrow escape in the last race.
He had the mount on P. J. Dwyer's Banasa.
which, on the strength of a fast trial, opened
first, choW and closed equal favorite with Tana
ger. JuFt after the start Banasa was crowded
against the rail and fell, and O'Neil wag thrown
tind«-r the feet of the flying field. , He picked
himself up. however, and escaped with a bad
shaking up. Banasa broke her leg and will
probably have to be destroyed. Economy made
the running in this race, but Tanager caught
her at the head of the stretch, and in a hard
drive won by a head.

Bid rRICE FOR /)/•' MUND.
Paul Raincy Buys Fast Two-Year-
Old — Inquisitor for Sale. ,
Paul Ralney. who Is sparing no money to get to
gether a good stable, bought the two-year-old De
Mund yesterday from Newton Bennlngton for a
price said to be 445.000. This is one of the highest
prices ever paid for a two-year-old in this country.
The late William C. Whitney paid 60.000 for Nas
turtium, in 1900, but Nasturtium had shown him
self a horse of class in races, whereas De Mund
is practically untried, although he beat an ordi
nary Held easily In his only start _t Aqueduct.
He Is a bij. upstanding colt, by Goldfinch—Graci
?*! .» and in llis work has been shewing so well
tnat Mr. Rainey may have been justified In pay
ing such a big price. The early morning watchers
credit him with a half-mile in 46 seconds, and not
iully extended, and if he will train on he will have
ampin opportunity to earn his purchase price, as
he is engaged in many rich stakes. Mr. Raine-y
Js?^v Kald to have m " d « « mistake when he paid
v£>,ofio for the contract on Radtke, the jockey. It
eld not turn out so. however, and If De Mund
proves as good an Investment as Radtke he will
nave every cause to congratulate himself.
Tom Welsh, who owns Inquisitor, winner of the
Montague Stakes and two other races at the meet-
Ing, said yesterday that the colt was for sale, as
he did not consider it advisable to own any horses
himself, in view of the fact that ho was training a
hi* stab)- for others. Inquisitor is the only horeo
i oonw _ ns ' an^. if he does not sell him at private
saie he. will consign him to the first auction sale
of thoroughbred* held in the near future. In
quisitor ha* already shown himself to be a clever
Ui! ee-yrar-old. and should be worth at least JlO.OOrt.
His race yesterday, in which he showed he could
go a distance of ground In good company, was
enough to make him worth all of that price.
It was Millers day at Jamaica yesterday. He
rode three winners and one second in five mounts,
while Radtke was able to score only once. Thene
two clever jockeys are now tied for the lead, with
thirteen victories each, and the rivalry between
them will wax warm to-day for the riding honors
«° "I** 11 " 1 *; Garner, who more than held hla
own In the earlier days of the meeting, cannot be
better than third.
Isaac Frank, who owned and raced a small stable,
died from heart disease yesterday at tbe home of
his mother at Madison avenue and 89th street.
The funeral will be held to-morrow.
T. Burns had his first mount of the season in the
metropolitan district on Brags;, in the second race.
He got back from the West on Monday, where he
was riding for Charlie Ellison.
Oxford, which was scratched from the Montague
Stakes yesterday, was worked between races as a
final preparation for the Metropolitan Handicap
to-morrow. He looked well and moved freely, and
is quite likf-ly to give a good account of himself.
Hosoben was scratched yesterday because the track
was slightly cuppy. He will be a starter in the
big 1 race to-morrow, and his owner and trainer still
have full confidence In him.

Two Cars Run Far on Limited Fuel
in a Second Trial.
The committee in chute of the two-gallon effi
ciency contest held under the auspices of the Auto
mobile Club of America had the owners of the two
cars which made the best showing on Saturday go
over the same course again yesterday. The com
mittee took this Action to satisfy themselves, in
view of the protests that had been made that the
conditions of the contest were not complied with in
•very particular.
It was asserted that small boys got possession
of the gasolene after the owners of the machines
taking part in the contest had emptied thetr tanks
on arriving at the starting point and hod gone
about trying to sell it with some success.
The machines that went over the course yester
day were the 12- horsepower runabout Franklin,
owned by the Decnuvltl* Automobile Company,
and the 20-hornepower Frayer-Miller of Dr. Butler,
which finished first and second respectively on Sat
urday. As both exceeded the distance made by
thrm on Saturday it left no doubt that the condi
tions were complied with. Although the showing
made by the Frayer-MUler car yesterday was su
perior to that of the Franklin, it has nothing to do
in the awarding of the cup.
The start was made from Avenue A and 57th
street yesterday, the same as on Saturday, and the
machines went over the same route. F. E. Mosc
kovls drove the Frayer-Miller car, and was arrested
at Central Bridge for speeding. The arrest caused
him one hour and twenty minutes' delay. He drove
the machine 59 8-10 miles, which, according to its
weight and cylinders, gives it a score of 243.386. On
Saturday the car went 47.9 miles, with a score of
191,953.
The little Franklin, with A Holmes driving,
travelled a distance of 95 miles, giving it a score of
218,500. It stopped seventeen miles east of New
Haven. On Saturday this machine went eighty
s<-vrn mile*, and led with a score of 200.100.
•<_.^ ,11 condition of the roads evidently had a
good deal to do with the increase both cars made
JiL v Unp ov r Saturday. For a good part of
the journey on Saturday the machines were driven

WAGER OVER AUTO EFFICIENCY RUN.
The controversy over the two-gallon efficiency
contest held by the Automobile Club of America
last Saturday culminated yesterday in a wager of
«.«*> a side, between A. L. Ktill. of the Wayne
Automobile Company, and C. F. "Wyckoff. repre
senting the Franklin ear. which finished first. The
wager Is that- the Franklin car could not cover
eighty-seven miles over the same route on two
gallons of gasolene.
The money h ** been placed in the hands of S. M.
Butler, secretary of the Automobile Club of Amer

erring precision, and offset a fast net game by
clever lobbing. The best that Gates could do

The Two Greatest English Critics Say of
Mr. Owen Wister's novel Lady Baltimore
"It is pleasant to be able to say that . . . his reputation trill be more than merely maintained by
his new venture. . . It would be difficult to speak too highly of this delightful volume. . .
Lady Baltimore, as may be gathered from what we have said above, is a many-sided book. . •
In fine, here is an author of whom America may well be proud, not only for his literary «o
complishments, but for his generous, yet discriminating, love of his country.'* — The Spec
tator, London.
"Mr. Wister's deft, witty comedy is no mere witty trifling with the manners of people of leisure. *~
There is an ideal, an ideal, beneath it — the American people. What will that people be? Mr.
Wister asks, and we find in his book a larger patriotism than we had supposed to be possible
as yet. . m% . Very many readers will exclaim that they did not knorc he could do this sort of
thing; write, that is, a "high comedy" cut and polish a jewel, move nimbly among very deli
cate emotions and ideas, which a single lapse into awkwardness or roughness would destroy. ;
'The Virginian' can no longer be held to be the xcork of an impassioned tyro by any one who
observes how in 'Lady Baltimore' the story is informed hy the idea, hove light and delicate the
humor is for all the urgency of the pleading, how fragrant is that atmosphere of lavender
which the whole story breathes." — The Times, London. _f*_JF!

The Giants managed to pull a game out of the
fire with the Superbas at Washington Park.
Brooklyn, yesterday, by a batting rally In the
eighth Inning, which brought in two runs and
gave them the game by a score of sto 4. As
Chicago lost to Pittsburg. the victory put the
Giants in the lead aga}n in the pennant race.
Good fielding marked the work of both teams,
and the feature was Browne's fine catch of
Casey's fly against the fence in the fifth inning.
McGinnlty pitched for the Giants, and although
hit hard had good control at critical times.
Brooklyn scored three runs in the third inning
on a two-bagger and four singles, and up to the
fifth inning it looked as if the tailenders would
again defeat the champions. In that inning
Sranlon went up in the air, and with the bases
full Mclntyre was substituted. The change did
not work to the advantage of the Superbas,
however, as Dahlen got a base on balls, forcing
in a run, and then Devlin came along with a
slashing single, scoring "two men and tying the
score. ,\
Brooklyn took the lead once more in the next
inning, but the Giants won in the eighth, when,
after Gilbert had been passed to first, Marshall
made a pretty double and Donlin followed with a
single. The score follows:

Philadelphia. May B. Pennsylvania's faculty
Athletic committee' to-day refused to cancel the

body and many of the alumni are clamoring for
such action.
The committee simply announced that no ac

numbers is reported to have said that the opin

was Pennsylvania could not cancel a game at so

The Highlanders turned a baseball somersault
at American League Park yesterday, and Wash
ington did not have to more than half try to
win by a score of 8 to 3. The fielding' of the
home players was little better than could be ex
pected of a crowd of schoolboys, and seven errors
•were charged against them. "Williams was the
chief offender.- with three stupid blunders that
called forth groans from the crowd.
Washington, on the other hand, played a per
fect fielding game, the work of Cross being ex
ceptionally good. Clarksort began pitching for
the Highlanders, but after the visitors had
gained a commanding lead in the fourth inning
Leroy was substituted. He did little better.
Kitson pitched a strong game for Washington,
and showed that he could bat as well by making
a long drive to right field in the fourth inning
• for a home run. scoring Kittridge before him.
The one redeeming feature of the Highlanders
game was a home run by Williams in the eighth
inning. It was a wasted effort, however, for
while it resulted in two runs and the fans
cheered In a half-hearted way the game was
hopelessly lost at the time.
Washington scored two runs in the first inning
on two scratch hits and a timely single by Cross.
The only wonder is that it was not four Instead
of two, as Clarkson was as wild as a hawk and
gave three bases on balls. Reckless ba3e run
ning by the visitors cost them two outs, how
ever. The Highlanders scored one run in the
second inning on singles by Delehanty and
Kleinow, but after that hope sank lower and
lower as each inning passed and Washington
drew further and further away. The score
follows:
WASHINGTON. I NEW YORK.

DELAY STATISTIC BUREAU
Beard of Aldermen Ask Time to
Consider Metz's Resolution. -
There was a lively discussion yesterday at th«
meeting of the Board of Aldermen, when th« re
port of the Finance Committee, recommending- an
appropriation of $50.W> to enable Controller Met. to
establish a bureau of statistics was made. Alder
man Meyers moved that the report be laid over for
two weeks to give the members time to consider
the resolution. Borough President Coler and
Alderman McCall urged the immediate considera
tion of it. It was finally adopted by an over
whelming vote.
Controller Metz said that the bureau was abso
lutely necessary and that there had been plenty
of time for the aldermen to become familiar with
the resolution. Alderman Meyers argued that
ex-Controller Grout had the Bureau of Franchises
transferred from his office to the Board Of Esti
mate, and that he considered it a good tstn?.
"Controller Metz l.< too good natured. sometimes."
said Mr. Meyers, "and as he is our highest finan
cial officer he ought to be the most careful of all
about expenditures."
Mr. Metz said he didn't care anything about t6e)
Bureau of franchises, but he insisted that ho
needed the appropriation and that it would mesa
a big saving to the city in the long- run.
The proposed appropriation is not likely to get
through the Board of Estimate. The Mayor Is
understood to be against it.
