WEEK ON
TURF QF WEST
BooKles Have Lost Heavlly to
the Public,
DICK WELLES A WONDER
Magnlflcent Son ofKlng Erle Not Only
Set New World's Record for Slx
Furlongs and the Mile, but
Showed Abillty to Go On.
(Speclal lo Tho Tlmes-Dlspntch.)
CHICA-O, lhli., August 22,-Tho sensa
tlon ot tho weok's. raclng at Hawthorne
haa been the romarkablo luck ot tho pub?
lic In thelr daily battle wlth tho book
mnkers. Blnco tho change ot raclng from
Harlom to Hawthorne, race-goers havo
been beating tho books so unmerclfully
that thlrty-odd book-mUkers aro losor* to
the'tune of J-00,000. In fact, tholr loslngs
have become so regular that the majorlty
of tho smnller book-makers Hre on tho
ar.xlbus seat, and their only chanco of
romainlng In the rlng must bo a marked
Change of luck. Should thls not como
thore will be a notable thlnnlns out in
tho number of,men hundllng the publlc's
money at the track.
? ? ?
Tho feature event of tho week has been
the marvelous work of Dlck Wellos, and
hc has proven bcyond a doubt that he is
the champion ot the West, lf not tho
cr.tlro country.
The mngnlflccnt son of King Erlo ha?
not alone set a world's record for slx
furlongs and the mile, but he has shown
concluslvely that1 even ut a mile and
an eighth ho ls the same fearless
champion 'that he is ,nt shorler dls.
tonccs, nnd hls noble slre, King Erle,
who died near Lexlngton, Ky., durlng tho
past week, has loft a worthy represent
ative, who will startle the world wlth hls
wenderful achlcvements beforo he becomes
a seasoned four-yoar-old.
A match that would no doubt draw ono
of tho largest crowds that ever witnessed
raclng ln Amerlca Is a posslblllty between
Dlck Welles, Waterboy, Hermls and Mc?
Chesney. .. ,
Tho condltlons of the raco to be that
each owner put up $25,000 and tho raclng
assoclation to add J25,O0O, and tho entlre
amount to go to the winner.
Should thls race become a reality every
lovor ot thoroughbreds will be on hand
wlth hls roll, and either become a prince
or a pauper by laying lt all on his par?
tlcular favorite.
There Is' also a match trylng to bo ar?
ranged between Hermls und McChesney.
Hermls' great vlctory at Saratoga, and
McChesney once more belng In condltlon.
tho match Ir more than probable, and will
make a very Interestlng ovent The peo?
plo of the West have never lost confldence
Ir, the mighty McChesney, and one and all
bellevo thnt McChesney would tako the
measure of Hermls in handy fashion.
The largo attendance at Hawthorne on
the openlng day were very agree.ably dis
appolnted when the newly appolnted spe?
clal constable, Lango, did not sw.riop down
upon them with hls army of hoodlu.ns,
arrestlng everybody ln slght, maklng the
placlng of a bet'among tin Imposslbill
tles. The alr was full of rumo.5. out the
self-made lawmaker did not appear, and
as day after day has pased, and tho blast
of hls bugle has not been heard, the wlse
have como to tho cohcluslon that Con?
stable Lange has enough to hold him
a whlle.
E. E. Farley, the "ringcr," was to
have been laken to Detrolt on Thursday
of this week to answor the charge cl
securing fcO.OOO under falso pretenses.
and for whlch the penalty in tho State
of Mlchlgmi ls a long term of imprlson?
ment in the penitentinry, w is oeld by the
authorltles as a wltness ln Chlcago, as
a wltness in the coming trial of tho people
agalnst tho bookm.ikers and proprletors
of various raco tracks In the vlclnlty of
Chlcago, alleglng gambllng on the tracks,
and whlch Farley was malrdy Instrumen
tal in brlnglng about.
It was declded not to grant '.he sequl
sltlon of tho Governor of Ml:hi___ for
tho person of Farley untll r.fter this
trlal, whlch, it is understood, will be
be'gun at once.
. ? ?
The recent dlsturbances brought about
by Farloy and other unscrupulou? persons
who havo been harasslng th? variuus
managements around Chlcago havo
shown tho necesslty for a raclng bill
ln Illinols, the samo as thoro ls ln N?w
York, Mlssouri, "Callfornla and othor
Western Statos. Such a law would prevent.
dlsgraced and ruled-oft owners from
vontlng thelr splto on the tracks on ay
count of thelr just piinlshment.
What wns thought would lead to a
sensatlonal oxposures in raclng clrcles at
the. Chlcago tracks has simmered down
to have beon nothing moro than a wnr bt
words betweon Ed Corrigan and Startor
Holtman, about tho exact placlng of tno
s|x furlong post nt l?mwthorne rac. trick.
Corrlgnn wnB not satisfled that the po
sltlon of tho post gave the horso on the
Insldo and tho ono on tho outslde an
eo.ual chanco at the start. He so notlfled
Mr. Fltzgornld, president of the Haw?
thorne Jockey Club, and Fltgerald told
Corrlgnn" to move lt.
Holtman becamo angry at what ho do
slgnated Corrlgnn's interference wlth hla
work, and they had a very noisy argu?
ment, untll finally Holtmnn became so
exclted thnt ho tendered hls reslgna*
tlon, whlch was not ncCepted. A sur
voyor wns cnlled i.pon to determlne the
exnet positlon of the barrier, nnd both
parties romaln of the flrm opinion that
thoy were correot In the way thtiy war.ted
it, They allowed the surveyor to mov.
it, and thoro it Is now, both clalmlng
vlctory. Holtman ls stlll startlng, and In
all probabllty will continue to do so for
an Indeflnlte perlod.

Chnrloy Elllson and John Colemnn. two

thoy want.
A letter rocelyed from Los Angeles
states thnt the new raco track belns

pleted, and the ope'nlng season is expect?
ed to be a brllliant one, and ls anxlously

WHO IS KING
OFTHETURF?
Raclng Publlc Demands an
Answer to Questlon.
FIVE THOROUGHBREDS
Talk of a Special Sweep Stakes of
-.125,000?McChesney, Waterboy,
Irlsh Lad, Hermia and Afrlcan
der? New Pacing Mark.
By MANHATTANi
NBW YORK, August 22.-WII1 the que_>
tlon of the best raco horso on tho Amer?
ican turf bo sottlcd thls season by an
actual raco botween thoso who may falrly
b6 consldered contestants for tho title
at welght for oge7 This Is the questlon
whlch Is excitlng the raclng publlc just
now, and the answer Is yet ln the star^.
Thero are live horses now runnlng on tho
Eastorn track, uny ono of whlch has
staunch friends who believe hlm to be
the best blt of horseflesh which looks
out of a bridle. They aro Waterboy, Mc?
Chesney, Herrnls, Irlsh Lad and Afrlcan
det, .Flrst Waterboy wlns a cracklng good
race, nnd Is halled Klng of the Turf.
Then Irlth Lad cllps tt blt off the rocord,
and hls friends' hats are In the alr. Agaln
Herrnls rounds Into form, and ls promptly
declared the peer of all thoroughbreds.
So lt goes, and the raclng publlc ls be?
coming keyed up to a pltch whlch do?
mands a settlement of the questlon.
Mr. E. R. Thomas, owner of Hern-ls,
ls thoroughly convlncod that ho has tho
best horse In tho world, now that tho
son of Hormance hne/ rounded to hls old
form, and Is prepared to back hls Judg
ment agalnst anybody's horse for any
amount. He ls sald to havo suggested a
sweepstakes of $25,000 each, to whlch
elther or all the horses named would be
ellglble. The mouths of all lovers of the
thoroughbred began to water at the very
Idea of a raco between these great racers
for a purto of $125,000, tho greatest ever
raced for. It is doubtful, however, lf
thero ls much chanco for such glorlous
srort, though lt Is barely posslble that
elther the Saratoga or Conoy Island offl?
cials may arrango tho match, If not at
that hlgh figuro, at somethlng whlch wlll
make the purso as blg, If not blgger, than
anything ever raced for on the American
turf.
If a special for these fivo horses should
be arranged on one of tho metropolltan
tracks lt would draw _>uch a crowd as
never before seen at a race track ln tho
Unlted States, and the bettlng would go
lnto seven flgures.
It seems certaln that unless drawn to?
gether by a special purso the questlon
of supremacy wlll have to be settled by
word of mouth lnstead of over the track.
Every one of these horses ls now ss flt
as ever he wlll be. Herrnls, Irlsh Lad.
Waterboy, and Afrlcander havo shown
thelr fltness in races, whlle lt Is sald Mc?
Chesney has fully recovered from " hls
lamcness.
It Is to be hoped they wlll get to?
gether,
? ? ?
Dan Patch has cllpped another trac?
tion off the pacing record, and It' now
stands at 1:50 flat. He dld lt in such
style that McHenry, hls drlver, Is confl
dent that the great son of Joe Patchen
can go the mlle lri two, lf not three,
seconds faster, and may do lt before the
end of the season. In the last half cen
tury the pacing record has been cllpped
20>4 seconds. From Pet's 2:19.4 to Dan
Patch's 1:50 is a great gap, but the clip
plng has been done by fractions of
seconds slnce 1892, when Mascot mado
the dlstance ln 2:04.
Dan Patoh's performanee was a splen
dld one. Condltlons were not favorable
for fast time, the track was not par
ticularly good. and a strong wlnd was
blowinjr across the track. A great crowd
saw the performanee and cheered both
the horse and tho drlver.
Lou Dlllon was not so fortunate In try?
ing to lower Cresceus' flgures. She made
a miperb effort, but condltlons were
against licr. nnd she could not come
withln more than a second of the record.
From her performanee. however, it ls
not unlikcly thnt the trottlng flgures, ns
well as those for pacing, wlll be flxed at
a new mark before the season ls out.
There la tak about tho Jamnlra Raclng
Assoclatlon maklng a demand on tho
Jockey Club for better dates and moro
days of raclng. It ls sald, In connectlon
wlth these stories, thnt the Jamalca As?
soclatlon lncludes somo of the strongest
polltlclans In tho Stnto, and may use
polltlcs as a club to get what It wants.
It is not llkely there is anything ln theso
reports. In the flrst pace, the Jamalca
track has been treated very falrly; In
tho next the Jockey Club is not par
tlcularly amenablo to polltlcal pull, and
lastly, In case of a contest between the
two forces the Jamalca people would
stand to get tho worst of It, and they
know It. So lt ls a pretty Bafe proposl
tlon to say that' thero wlll be no frlctlon
between the trnck and the Jockey Club
thls season. at all events.
? ? ?
Tho courts have declded the controversy
over the control of the little negro Jockey.
Wallace Hlcks, and he wlll contlnue to
rldo for Perry Belmont, under the mnn
agement of Antolne Pllcquo, who brought
hlm from New Orleans. The actlon for
control of the boy was nomi'nally In the
namo of hls father, but It ls belteved
Hatfleld, who formerly eontrolled the
boy, was back of tho actlon. One of the
funny thlngs developef, by the proceed
lngs was the fact that Hlcks If now pos?
sessed of a valet, who ls ns black as the
little Jockey and about three tlmos as blg.
The valet was the most oxclted man In
Saratoga when tho court proceedlngs be?
gan,
George Octom does not want to ride for
the Thomas and Shi'elds stable under hls
present contract, but, as the stewards
have declded that his contract ls vnlld
ond blndlng, he wlll have to do It, unloss
tho stewards nre ovorrulod. Captain S,
S. (Brown, who hns flrst call on Odom's
services, has become lnterested ln the
matter, and wlll brlng ft bofore the Jockey
Club. There ls frlctlon botween the Uttle
Georglan and Mr, Thomas, and, hesldes,
Odom holds thnt he should not bo ex?
pected. tn rtde for the comblned stable
for the same money ho got from Shlelds
alone,

News hns reached hero that Jocke'y F.
McGInn, who went to France to ride thls

and L. C. Smlth each maklng a run of
tnlrty-two targots, elther of whom It was
thought would wln out, but each dropped
thelr last two blrds.
RACE OF HIS LIFE. .
Fllppen remarked confldently to one
of hls friends, ho would wln out or "Mol
tlo Stark's a wldow." Thls was really
the prettlest and hardest race ot hls life,
and he purposely saved fl.ll hls norve and
energy for thls partlcular event. No one
dreamed that he could stand tho great or
deal. but as he centered target after
tnrget, and the scorer called up the
"puverizod mud ples," lt seomed to g..e
hlm renewed energy, and he contlnued
to call to tho puller for blrds, until he
smashed out twenty-four to hls credlt,
amld applauso and hearty congratula
tlon. L. C. Smlth was keeping close com?
pany by only dropplng two blrds ln tho
last twonty-fivo, whlle Anderson wns
practlcally out of the race after hls
elghteenth blrd.
Brown shot under great dlfflcultles, hav?
lng two shells to burst in hls gun, tho
powder ond gas escaping from the gun,
struck hlm ln the eyes wlth consldersble
force, but even after thls ho shot well.
The slght was not impaired. Mr. Johnson

bo soen by hls score.
In the regular event at twenty-flve tar?

breaklng ninety-one out of one hundred.
Tho regular shoot, none but Northslde

There was an extra, not scheduled, a
live blrd raco, between Mr. Martln .and
Mr. S. McLelland, each kll|Ing thelr ten
