Gorman lie will have a cliam-e to prou lo
the Washington sporting public that he
is worthy the name of "Champion ot the
District of Columbia."
In Gorman he will meet a strong, sturdy
pugilist and an old ring general, who will
bring out allot the good points of the local
man. Gorman in bio day has fought count
less battles, botli in tills country and
Australia and what lie does not knowabout
the game is r not much value to a pugilist.
McMillan has also had considerable ex
perience and he will, it ls expected, at

money. He lias met and defeated some good
men and so easily disposed otall of thclocal
aspirants for championship honors that his
supporters expect lo sec him come ort
victorious In to-night's battle. . In fact,
they are so confident he will be returned a
wluner that they are giving the Gorman

over the fence.
If the colored lad tries any of his tricks
Willi Mike Daly's boy tie will find he has
barked up the wrong tree, as Murphy is as
smart as the next one at the tricks of the
trade. He could ride all around the boys
down here, with the possible exception ot
Willie Ham, and It's dollars to cents that
he can show his heels to many of Ihe best
boys ou the Northern tracks.
The card at the St. A6aph track to-day
is a" good one la every respect- The events
are not only well filled but the class of
horses is good and pretty evenly matched.
The opening event baB eight pretty rank
dogs entered and the man who beats it will
be a good one- It is the only real bad
race ou the card, and will do well lo leave
alone. The 6econd is at six furlongs and ,bas
twelve carded. If the track is l;eavy Duke
of Gloucester shouM win, but ns it is very
doubtful in Just what condition it will be by
the time the races are started he can be
thrown out altogether. Humming Bird
figures pounds better than the rest of the
field and should have no difnculty in
winning. It is a very close thing between
Little Alice and Miss Modred for the place
with the chances 6lightly in favor of the
The two-year-old race should go to that
unlucky colt, Mario, He has been left at
the post, nearly put over the fence, lias
been cumbered up with liail Jockeys, and
has, in fact, had everything done to him
that could be to keep him from winning a
race. To-day it looks as it he was about
due to break his run ot hard luck and we
look to tee him returned a winner. Fred
Munch is about the best of the others, with
Murray the next best.
laiza belli should repeat her victory of last
in thoracein which shebeatSomoMore. As
that event was at six furlongs and to-day's
is at six and a-half she "figures" a sure
winner. Some More and Dr. Johnson will
about be fighting for the place wlUi Gaiety
The firth race lies between S Ira and Syde
The latter is very good Just about now and
may beat Dicstel's horse. Fassett Is the
best of Uie others.
The closing race should go to Renaissance,
although Grey Forest has a great chance to
beat him. 11 r. Heed has a mortgage on third
money and may have a fighting chance to
win. The race shoud furnish agood finish.
