SYRACUSE. N. Y.. Sept. 11.— With
turf conditions which were estimat
ed to make the course a good half
second slower than on Wednesday, when
he established a new world's trotting
record for geldings, 2:01%, Major Delmar
went a mile on the State Fair Grounds
track at 5 o'clock this" afternoon in
2:00»i. lowering 1 his previous record one
and a quarter seconds.
This remarkable exhibition of speed
was made In the presence of 15,000 per
sons, who cheered enthusiastically when
the result was announced, and it was
realized that Lou Dillon, the two-minute
trotter, alone stood between Major Del
mar and the world's trotting record, and
that by only a quarter of a second.
The early actions of Major Delmar did
not promise the splendid achievement
which was to follow. Twice McDonald
nodded his head as he drove Delmar
down the stretch, accompanied by a run
ner, and twice did the gelding break, first
at the eighth and then -at the quarter
pole, and waa returned for another start.
A pair of shadow goggles were removed
from Delmar's eyee, as It was thought
they had a tendency to make him rest
less, and McDonald again announced His
readiness for another trial.
This time there was no fluke. With the
regularity of clockwork Delmar settled
down to his work and interest In the
grand stand became Intense. The quarter
wa^ reached in :31Vi, the same time made
by Delmar in Wednesday's trial. Soon
after paESing the quarter pole the gelding
faltered slightly, but soon recovered him
self and reached the half In 1:01. having
gained three-quarters of a second over
his time on Wednesday. At the half Del
mar and his running mate were Joined by
a second runner and the real contest be
gan. Side by side flew the three horses.
Glances at watches showed that the third
quarter had been done in :29M and a
mighty cheer went up. Coming into the
stretch McDonald gave Delmar a light
touch with the whip and the gelding In
response made a magnificent spurt which
brought him under the wire In 2:00»i.
the present time. They will Join U'ilson's
team when it reaches the northern city to
open with Portland next Wednesday. Their
absence has weakened the team considerably,
as both are exceptionally fast men.

There were seven starters In the fourth
number, another five furlong sprint.

bumped at the start.
There was only one purse race on the
programme, aryl that had but three start

on the winner, rode a clever race after
breaking a stirrup on the back stretch.
For the opening five furlong dash four

SUCH an exhibition as was handed
out at Recreation Park yesterday
would not do In the lynchers'
league, or In any other bush organiza
tion In the baseball world. The talent
from Seattle were about at its worst, so
any one who was fortunate enough to be
absent can easily imagine how the game
was. Score: Oakland, 6; Seattle. 1.
The aUraction for the day was Mr.
Blewett, late of Tacoma, also New York
and Brooklyn and possibly some other
place. If he gave the best he had yester
day he deserrefl to be chased. He could
not throw a curve nor a swift ball. He
had no control In that left wing of his
end he fielded h!s position like same old
woman trying to break into the game.
Why the Cripples did not make a mil
lion runs is not known. Perhaps they can
tell, but at any rate they seemed content
with six. They made these In numerous
ways. Some by hitting:, others on errors
and come by stealing away from first to
the plate without any of the opposing
players Interfering with-thcir efforts.
The day was a terror. It was hot and
fultry and a haze hung over the diamond.
It was nearly impossible to see the out
fielders when they went after a ball.
There was no ginger nor life in the con
test and the fans were forced to leave the
place before the game was half finished.
They could not stand It longer-.
The Cripples played a good game. They
hit well and fielded perfectly until the
ninth inning, when Willie O'Hara let a
drive from the bat of Mohler pass
through him. Then Smith tore off a
three-cushioner and the little man came
In with the only run for Seattle. The

Realizing the near approaching

naif miles. There were but four start
era, yet one of the four was badly inter
fered with, and, while Caughnawaga won
for John Sanford, the victory was not as
clean cut as admirers of the stable
would have preferred. Burns had the
mount on Caushnawaga and his success
was coincident with the announcement
made during the day that his relation as
jockey for W. C. Whitney would cease
to-morrow and that hereafter he will ride
for Mr. Sanford.
Highball. winner of the Flatbush
stakes, was an odds-on favorite for the
Golden Hod stake and. whil« he won by
many ler.eth>. Fuller was forced to use
his whiD on the turn Into the stretch.

Portlands Bat Out a Victory in a Gale
SACIUUEMO, Sept. II.— Playing ball in
a gale of wind, the Portlands had but little
difficulty In batting out a victory, materially
aided by errors and stupid plays on the part of
the home team. In the eighth Inning the Sena
tors played ball like a lot of schoolboys and
four rum crossed the plate on one hit. Both
K«f« and McFarlao were hit hard, but the
Portland man was accorded the better sup
