Three Exciting Races Yesterday.

Even the elements gocm to eonsplro In
favor of tba Memphis Jockey Club. Tho
loworing clouds, yo8lcrJ.iv morning,
looked ominous, but by noon Old Sol
broke through tho bunch and passed un
der the wire hand down by a million
lengths; that is to say, that at noon tho
sun came out and by 2 o'clock there wasn't
i-spock on the sky.
The attondunce, all things considered,
was roinurkablo, tho gato rucoipts showing
n Increase of 700 on the day before. The
grand stand was packod and the betting
pavilion was so thickly populated that
one had1 to fight one's way through to the
books. The sport was brilliant. Tliero
were three exciting finishes of the order
that men love to remember. Mute, Spokane
and lien Harrison mado it so Interesting
for the winners that those who bad pool
tickets on the latter held Uioir breath un
til tho string waa .passed. Barnes again
demonstrated his superiority as s Jockey
by winning two out of three mounts, one
of which bo had no businbis to win.
O'llara role Entry so baJly In the third
race that he ought to take down his sign
as s jockey and hire himself out as a sign
. for a cigar stand. A woolen man could not
. have ridden worse than bo did. On Mon
day, April 22, Ben Harrison ran Kecvcna
out to a bead In 1:45. Yesterday ho was
beaten in 1:48. The track, it la true, was
heavy and alow, but It wasn't three
seconds slow by s lorue majority. Mr.
O'llara may have thosatisf.iclionof know

Tuesday, with 100 pounds up, Itod Leaf

The two year old race was a knock down
to the talent. Thure was nothing in It,
they said, but Gwendoline, liliae and
Morse, and tho money wont in on the
former In chunks. The uncertainly of two
year old raring was again demonstrated by
the easy victory of a rank outsider who
went begging at 13 and 20 to 1.

from ths South arrived, about 1 o'clock,
consisting of twenty-three cars, containing
about 2,000 people, about .00 poople had
been st work. The later comers were
simply struck with smai-'Oieiit. They did
not repeat tho wild null at Outhrle, as
they were too much sstounded to run.
They mechanically walked over the town

there is a lack of dirt aud dust As at

tney may yet snow their imiignution over

lots, sll -bolce ones, will be luuinvd at one

being overpowered by nuuila rs, thure will
be no trouble. Hhould reslnlsnee be mado,
then force will lie uied to eject from the

The outlying claironhts have been crossing
near ths cenler of tba town snd hsvs been

is that ths speculators hats black eye.
The lots sold the first dry were tho only
