Wholesale Fouling at the
Tried to Gain an Advantage by
Unfairly Displacing a
BAIN CURTAILED THE CARD.
Walter Sanger Made the Best Finish
of His Life In the Two-Mile
LOUISVILLE, Kt., Aug. 16.— The last
day of the races of the L. A. W. National
meet ended with a quarrel among the
racing men on account of fouling, the
equal of which has not been seen on the
National circuit / this year. The trouble
arose in the five-mile National champion
ship race, in which were entered all the
cracks in attendance at the meet except
danger. Cooper started the fouling by
trying to push Bald from the pole with his
hand. Bald retaliated, and after that ex
ample from the leaders nearly every man
who wanted the pole got it by pushing.
Protests were entered with President
Elliott of the league by Bald again?t
Coooer, Cooper against Bald, Coburn
against Cooper and Gardiner against Cal
iahan. The finish was: Cooper first, W.
E. Becker of St. Paul second and E. S.
Acker of Philadelphia third. The time
was 12:18 2-5.
The officials took an hour to decide the
matter of the protests and the result was
that Cooper was disqualified for fouling
and the race given to Becker, with Acker
second and Nat Butler third. There is no
appeal from this decision. A heavy rain
storm prevented the running of the last
race on the card, the professional trial for
one mile unpaced, and that event was
The attendance to-day was the largest of
the meet. Excursions had been run from
all points within 300 miles of Louisville.
Fully 10,000 people were in attendance at
tne races. They saw Walter Sanger make
the best finish of his life in the two-mile
professional Handicap. His time was
within one-fifth of a second of the world's
There was no meeting of the racing
board to-day, as nad been expected, and the
matter of the charges against almost all
the amateurs that were entered in tne
National meet races that they were in the
pay of manufacturers will be investigated
at a called meeting, if at all. In a letter
to the Meet Club President Elliott and
Chairman Gideon of the racing board de
clared the Louisville meeting the most
succes~iu! in point of entertainment that
has ever been held by the league. The
wind-up of the meet was held at tne
league headquarters to-night. Sum
