Bad Weather Hampers Light-harness Affairs im
Washington Many Well-bred Horses in
By L. D. SALE.
Light harness affairs in the District
of Columbia are simply marking time.
The cause of thU partly relates to
wcapjer conditions, and to the fact that
several horse owners in our midst are un
decided as whether they will have their
charges regularly trained at all, or If
trained who shall have the job Many
of our local horse owners enjoy con
ditioning their own horses and in driv
ing them In races. The light harness
bred horse stands in a class by himself,
in that owners can drive him, while on
the other hand owners of the thorough
bred rarely ride their horses In races.
Tho major part of the trainers In
Washington are still in the air as re
gards their strings for the sprlrfg and
summer's work. We are later in this
latitude this year In that respect than
for several vears past. There Is a lot
of young material In our midst ready
for the trainer, and some are going to
get them In the course of time.
There is a lot of well bred young
horses in Montgomery County to be
trained mostly owned by farmers and
we presume some in Prince George
County and across the river in Virginia.
These youngsters must be schooled, or
at least should be schooled by competent
men It does not pay the owner of a
horse to place him in the hands of a
trairer simply because he offers to take
him for a sum less than he can actually
afford to do, taking into account his

At the Army and Navy Club the other
night the question arose among several
members touching on lite cause of the
abandonment of the naval boat races
that were erstwhile a fixture ln this city.
These races were participated in by row
ing crews of the various war ships at the
Washington Navy Yard and were Inter
esting In tho extreme. These regattas
attracted great crowds and were consid
ered one of the summer society events.
Intense rivalry" existed among the "Jack
lcs" and there were many spirited events
rowed on the Eastern Branch waters. It
was suggested that the fact that no big
gunboats come to the local navy yard
now and that the men who are assigned
to duty here remain but a short time be
fore they are ordered to do duty on ships
of the different fleets Is the main cause
of the abandonment of these regattas.
It Was also pointed out that at the navy
yard there are anumber,of- excellent
oarsmen, in the seamen gunners' class
and .that enough, crews could be gotten
together from the boats stationed here
and, at the Norflok Navy Yard-to furnish
rowing crews to compete ln these events
if the affair was sanctioned by the Sec
retary of the Navy. If these regattas
could be pulled off it, is admitted that it
would greatly stimulate .Interest in aqua
tic sports In this city, Several officials
cf the Navy Department have expressed
themselves as being heartily In favor of
a resumption of the regattas. They de
clare, that there is no sport that Is better

Mr. Turner is back in town, pleased!
with his experience, and, while be con
cedes that there are "others," he be
lieves that he was not outpointed cither
for size, breeding, manners, or looks. As
Gyman was never trained a minute for
