It required nine heats yesterday to
decide the two horse events at the horso

Driving Pnrk. It was the exception

finished without a gamey drive at the
In addition to bruising finishes "Jim"
Justin, an old and experienced driver,
gave a censatlonal exhibition of a ner
vy piece of urlvlng. Ralph Gregory
and Hen Keller, of this city, broke a
world's tandem record. The 2.0J pace,
purse $250, wns won by Bellman In five
heats, and th 2.20 trot or pace, purse
$400 was won by Bessie A In four heats.
Keller, McMlehael and "White finished
as named In tno two-mile lap race (bi
cycle).. Old "JnBw Justin's driving feat was
a wonderful bit of rlbtion-handllng and
poslbly saved himself nnd some other
drivers from Injury. He waa drlvlnij
Hes&Ie A In the second heat of the star
event. The off tire of his sulky be
camed loosened on the first turn and
threatened to either block the wheel
or cause a "spill." Justin caught the
tire In his hand when It swung within
reach. He continued to drive with his
left hand, tho right grasping tho tire
and whip. In this position nnd with
his horse In consequence badly handl
enrped he flashed by the grandstand
alongside Teresa T?, the pair a half
length behind Dolly Spencer.
Justin held this position around the
turn and ttp the backstretch and did
not release his hold on tho tire until
well Into reach for homo and near ths
grandstand. He finished second by a
note from Teresa B with Dollv Spen
cer and Spain alongside. Not more
than a half length separated, the whole
four. Never during the heat did Jus
tin's horsG make a skip. After dis
mounting he was .(Veered to the echo
but the strain of his effort had told
on him and he fell exhausted on the
grass near the Judge's stand. Ice water
revived him r.nd he was assisted off
the course. When Justin reappeared
on the track for the third heat he was
again loudly applauded. Veteran horse
men said his feat performed amid a
field of nlns horses, was tho most won

pacing class were rung to the post.
Out of twelve original entries only
three were withdrawn, Eva Bell, Tim
ber Lake and Macleavy. It was a good
Held of nine to score, Maggie Davis ex
cepted nnd she had the best of the
word on the third attempt, 'but brolw
badly on the first turn and gave the
lead to Billy H.
Billy H and Bellman came neck and
neck Into the reach for home, the for
mer on the rail. Poor driving by Ear
ing let lilm be shut out by Bellman,
who won by a halt length. Alton and
Lu Peck whipped to the wire, the for
mer betting third by a sent nose from
Lee Peck, the field flnlshliig In a string.
Time, 30, 1.12, 1.49, 2.23.
ORA C WITHDRAWN.
The Judges allowed Ora C to be with
drawn from the second heat as It was
reported by her owner that she was
not in condition. They were sent away
to as pretty a start as ever was given
to a field of seven.
They strung out while coming for the
wire nnd finished at half and full
lengths as follows: Billy H, Tom K,
Bellman, Walter R. Alton. Walter R.
Was placed fifth for running and Al
ton was given fourth place. Maggie
Davis was distanced. Time, 33, 1.11,
Billy H, Bellman and Alton got nn
eaily lead In the third heat and passed
the quarter-pole In the order name. At
the half the order was Bellman first
by a half length, the other two almost
nose and nose for second. Billy II
fell behind, after three-quarters had
been covered, Alton and Tom K go
ing up and challenging Bellman for
the lead. The latter was first by a
scant length at the finish, Tom K sec
ond, a half length before Alton, Billy
H fourth. Time, 362, 1.12, 1.49,
CLOSE FINISHES THE ORDER.
Close finishes seemed to be the order
of the day and the fourth heat was no
exception. They were sent away to a
good start, Walter R showing the way
around the llrst turn with Bellman
and Alton close up at the halt.
Billy H was whipped near the
wire and landed first by a head.
Walter R second a half length from
Bellman third. Time. 3GV4, 1.12, 1.50,
The fifth heat In which Bellman,
Walter R, Billy II, Tom K and Alton
Were tho only contestants, Lee Peck
having been drawn, was a contest be
tween the first three up to the wire
when Tom K, who had gone around
the bunch on the upper turn, collared
the leaders and succeeded In beating
out Walter R by a head for third. Bell

Driver Snm Earing, who drove Mary
land Eoy. one of Tuesday's runaways,
was more seriously Injured than was at
first supposed. One of the bones In his
Instep waa broksn and he appeared on
crutches yesterday. The fracture was
not however, nufllclently serious to pre
vent him from driving his entry, Billy
H In the 2.29 pace.
Regarding the Pomp runaway also
on Tuesday, It was ascertained that tho
accident was caused by a broken axle
and not bv a collision with the fence
as was reported yesterday. This ex
planation is made In lustice to C. A.
Horner, the driver, who was not guilty
of poor driving.
The bicycle events were exceedingly
fast and Interesting. The only com
petition ce.'t being tho two mile lap
race. Eleven men lined up, with Os
wald, Pole, and McMlehael, White,
Gregc'ty, Palmer, Kellar, Strong, Marsh,
Dunn, Ernst and Hall In the order
At the pistol, the line moved out well
together until the first turn was reach
ed when the fight for positions began.
Tl.ey kept well bunched to the home
stretch, when AVhlte shot out, followed
by McMlehael and Keller. A pretty
fight for the tape ensued, McMlehael
winning this lap, with White and Kel
ler second and third respectively.
Strong started the sprint In the sec
ond .ap but was promptly overhauled
by McMlehael nnd White, the former
again winning with the latter second
and Strong third In a blanket finish.
KELLAR WOKE UP.
In tho first of the third lap, Keller,
woke up with' a long sprint, followed
by McMlehael nnd White. The latter
succeeded In passing the Berwick boy,
but Keller fully held his own, winning
the lap, with White second and Mc
The Inst lap In this kind of race Is
the most Important as the winner of It
receives an extra point. The riders
broke Into the stretch like a whirlwind
on this lap, evidently Intending to
shake some of the slower men off.
They did it. Keller worked up an un
beatable sprint Just around the turn
"before entering the stretch, with Strong
and Grpgory tacked on, and finishing
ahead the bunch In the same order.
Keller won out with eight points; Mc
Mlehael second, with' seven, and White
third, with six points In 5.05.
Two-mile lap race
1 Points 8

0 Points 6
2 Points 3
Positions are taken nt each lap. First
man getting 3 points; second, two, and
third, one, until the last lap, the winner
of which gets 4 points.
Immediately following the lap race,
Ralph Gregory and Ben Keller rode a
half-mile exhibition on their Spauldlng
tandem for the woild's amateur un
paced tandem record, which was ."5:4-5
seconds. They rode a mile to warm
up before nodding their readiness to tho
VERY FAST TIME.
They crossed the tape, strong and
ttcady going well to the quarter In 27
seconds. The horsemen on the track
thought the first quarter too fast, be
lieving the boys had used themselves
up for that distance, but It was very
evident to the wheelmen who watched
the steadiness of the pace they were
holding, that the record was In danger.
TKey rounded like a whirlwind Into
the stretch, finishing straight oj.d
strong in the phenomenal time of 53
and 1-2 seconds, thereby making a new
world's record, amid great applause
This will be a banner day nt tho
Driving Park. Two star horse events,
the free-for-all, purse $500, nnd the
2.25 trot, purse $300, are to be decided
and there will be In addition the race
for the bicycle championship of
Northeastern Pennsylvania and a two
mile open bicycle event.
For the free-for-all there are now
stnbled at the track and ready for the
race today Raven (2.10), Ella T, (2.08),
Hal Pointer (2.04), Veta (2.09),
Moonstone (2.09), Bert Sheldon (2.16 ),
Allen Dare (2.13), Prose (2.16) and
others, amounting to a total of 11 en
tries, excluding Mabel W who was In
jured on Tuesday. The entries are
from five states. Twelve are entered
for the 2.23 trot.
Tho card for the day Is undoubted

The Imaginary clash between the
board of fire engineers and the Volun
teer Firemen's association did not ma
terialize last night when the associa
tion's special committee formally asked
tho board to change the date of the nn
nual flremnn's parade.
As a mutter of fact the board, after
a lot of gentlemanly tnllt, acquiesced
to the firemen's wish nnd the painde
this year will bu held Wednesday, Oct.
8, and not In September ns In former
years. This Is done to give nn opportu
nity to the firemen who will attend the
state convention In Wllkcs-Barre, to
see the Scranton parade.
The meeting last night wa3 called by
Chief Hlckey for the bole purpose of lis
tening to the association's committee.
It was held In the common council
chamber and present, besides Chief
Hlckey, were: Schwass, McManus, Ry
mer. Wnrnke and O'Malley, the district
engineers; nnd Common Councilman
Zeldler, constituting the board, and the
committee members, Isadora Goodman,
Max Zltzleman, John J. Kauflman, Jo
seph W. Hall and F. W. Zltzleman.
The ball wns Immediately started by
the reading of the resolution passed at
the last meeting of tho association ask
ing for tho change. Councilman Zeld
ler asked were there any objections.
He understood that the board of en
gineers thought the expenses of en
tertaining the visiting firemen would
be too much for the city. F.
W. Zltzleman then explained that
as tho convention was being
held so nenr by It behooved the city to
exhibit Its fire department In the
strangers' eyes nnd to show "them
what we have got," said Mr. Zltzleman.
Mr. Goodman said tho firemen have
everything ready for a time. It was
the Intention, he said, to send a print
ed blank to the several fire companies
in Wllkes-Barre Inviting them to par
tlclpale In the parade or to come up
and look on. His Idea was to rent a
hall say for $2 and havo some beer
and sandwiches for lunch, making th'e
hall a sort of headquarters.
Engineer Schwass arose and put In
the objection that the city could not
afford to hire the additional bands
necessary for the foreign contingent In
the parade. "It would be a sick look
ing parade with only three bands and a
drum corps In it," said Mr. Schwabs.
Mr. Zltzleman, Mr. Goodman nnd Mr.
Hall explained that the visiting com
panies would bring their own music
and Mr. Hall dropped the suggestion
that some one pass around the hat
"and raise $125 or so." Mr. Goodman
didn't like the Idea.
Councilman Zeldler thought that
the better Idea would be not to
hav n hall but to make the
engine houses in the central district a
number of headquarters. Mr. Good
man's single objection to this Idea
would be removed, he sead, If the
board allowed "firemen's refreshments"
to bo served. Engineer Warnke moved
that the date of the parade be changed.
Engineer O'Malley seconded it and the
motion passed. An annex to the mo
tion was that the city be not called up
on to bear any of the expense of tha
Another amendment was that the
parade start at 2 o'clock p. m. The next
thing In order will be for the associa
tion to appoint Its working committees.
It was suggested last nlpht that the
out-lying companies Join with the
central city companies in entertaining
the visitors at the engine houses on
the evening of October 8. This will
probably be done.
The councils will have to be notified
of tho change of date of the paiade
a It Is fixed by ordinance for Septem
ber. Hoard Did Not Mcot.
The board of health did not meet
last night owing to the failure of a
quorum to materallze. Health Officer
W. E. Allen is slightly Indisposed.
