New Orleans. La., March 23 The Cres
ttiit City Jockey Club meeting ended to
day with the $4,000 Derby at a mile and an
clrjhth. Despite the suspension of th" com
plimentary lit. the "tand and adjacent
Krounds Ttere thronged and the Infield filled
with cnrrlaRfs. The Dirhj- was the fourth
race on the card and promptly at 423
o'clock the contestants for the prize emerg
ed from the paddock for the paarde past
the stard. Joe Shelby led off and was fol
lowed by Isabey, Bennington and Gardin
er's pair. Nabob and DInmore. Presbjter
lan, the favorite, brouBht up the rear. The
Schorr candidate was always favorite In the
betting, opening at 4 to D and receding to
9 to 10. Joe Shelby opened at 6 to 1 and
closed at 8 to 1 and the entry was backed
from 1ft to 1 to C to 1. "While most of the
money went In on the faorite, Isabej
was backed from 11 to 5 to 2 to 1. The
others were generally backed for third
Starter Fitzgerald dropped his flag at
the first break to an excellent start. Naoob
and Dinsmore were oft In front together
and alternated In the lead for a full mile,
the others bunched and well up and all
crowding or jostling more or les. Round
ing Into the stretch there was a general
closing up. Nabob maintaining a lead of
half a length with his stable companion
second, the faorlte third and Shelby and
Ibabey following, the latter swinging wide
on the turn. Bums put up a desperate
ride on the faiorite In the last sixteenth,
squeezing to the front through a narrow
opening and riding vigorously to the wire.
In the last few jards Presbjterlan swerv
ed to the inner rail under his punishment,
shutting Shelby and Dinsmore off. Shelby
fought It out gallantly to the end but was
beaten a length by the faorlte. Isabey
hung when It came to the rinal drive and
Nabob tired badly In the last eighth, leav
ing third place to his stable mate.
John w. Schorr & Son. of Memphis,
liac won eiery stake for which they hae
tried at this meeting. Including, besides
to-dny'a prize, the Preliminary derby,
which Presbjterian landed for them in
the earlier part ot the meeting. They, also
won last scar's derby with Meadow thorpe.
The victory was only mildly popular.
After the race Knapp. who rode Isabey,
claimed a foul against Dinsmore for in
terference in the stretch, and Scherrer,
who rode Nabob, tiled, a similar claim
against Joe Shelby. Both claims were dis
allowed. After the race Knapp complained
with some bitterness of the recklessness
of the other bojs In the race and llnally
became so abusive that his badge was
taken away and he was ordered off the
grounds. The weather was beautifully
clear and the track fait. Presbjterian and
Headlight were the only winning faior

Now that Chris Von Der Ahe has de

to handle the St. Louis team. The latest
jam is to the effect that one div several

dressing room before the game and
"Shentlemans and Fellers: I hope sou

The St. Louis plajers then went out on

Into the dressing room afterward Chris
greeted them this waj :
"Ond dot is vot vou call vorking lige nine

Then everj bodj' was fined.
John E. Calvin, the Chicago correspond
ent of the Sporting News, writes as follows
of the stjle of plaj- to be put up bj- the
"Windy Ctij" team this season:
"Under Manager Bum-, the Colts will
change their stjle of plaj-. Under Anson
thej- alwajs plajed a safe, waiting game.
Upder Tom thej' will plaj- an aggressive,
snappj' game, taking all chances where
there Is n point to lie gained. Team work
will be Burns' watchword, and the plajer
that can not subordinate self to team work
will be at a discount In the esteem and es
timation of his manager. Team work Is
what wins gams. and Burns is going to
win all the games that can be had, if clear
headed ball plajing will do It. Mattie KII
roy will lead off the batting order, as he is
a sure hitter and also a verj- fast man on
his feet. He will be the -verj- man to en
courage the men to follow In his work on
tho base lines, for he will prove to be one
of the best b.ise runners in the club. Ever
ltt, for the same reason, will lnve iirst
chance to demonstrate his ability to till
the void at first caused by Anson's retire
ment. "Base running will be made a fe-iture of
the Colts' training and plajing this jear.
Last season manj- games were worse than
thrown awav bv stuoiditv that a school
boy would not lie guiltv of. Burns intends
to see that that is corrected, and he has
settled on Kilrov to act as demonstrator,
believing that the little fellow will Infu-e
his shrewdness into his teammates, and
that thej- will oulcklv pick up manj
strategic moves. Burns' Idea Is that he
would rather have a man that cm do the
right thing at the right time. In other
words can act quickly, than have a better
plajer. who can not get his mental ma
chine In running order until the opportun
Itv Is passed for a trick."
Base running Is a most important factor
in a struggle for a le.icue pennant, but
strange to saw the skillful b ise runnpr is
the scarcest article in the National League.
According to figures, the Baltimore team,
with Sten7el at the head, were the bet

He PemlHted in Attempting: to Pass It
nnd Furnished Evidence for
A man who gave the name of Robert
Johnson, and who claimed his home was
in Fort Scott, Kas., was arrested by Offi
cers Wakefield and Gillespie last night and
locked up on a charge of pa-slng counter
feit monej-. When searched at No. 2 police
station. Johnson had eight counterfeit sil
ver dollars and a counterfeit quarter,
nnd 73 cents In genuine monej-. The
capture is regarded bj the police as a
good one and thej claim to have sufficient
evidence to convict him.
The two police officers noticed Johnson
earlj- In the evening acting suspiciouslj
about the Stock Exchange building. He at
tempted to pass a counterfeit dollar in
Berrj's saloon, near the entrance to the
stock jards, but the monej was refused.
He then went to the corner of Twelfth
and Wj omlng streets, w here he asked Will
lam McKinlej-, who lives at 1031 West
Twelfth street, to change a dollar for him.
McKinnej- assented and Johnson turned
to go when McKinnej- noticed that the
monej- was bid and demanded that John
son return the change. Johnson protested
that the dollar was good but McKinnej
insisted that it be taken off ills hands and
John-on gave him the change ard took
the dollar. From there the police followed
him to Sixteenth and Genesee streets, where
Johnson passed one of the dollars on Blllj
Kessler. the proprietor of a saloon. Kesaler
found the monej- was not good before
Johnson left the saloon, and, like McKinnej-.
demanded that Johnson take It back.
As before Johnon feigned great surprise
that the qualitv of the coin should be ques
tioned but he took the dollar from Kess
ler and paid for his drink in small change.
Johnson went to M. 7.. Levi's second hand
store at 15Jt West Twelfth street from
the saloon, and there bought n handker
chief and passed one of the dollars again.
He left thf store and the officers placed
him under arrest at Twelfth and Hickorj-.
When the officers first accosted htm.
Johnson claimed he had found the money
in an allej-. but could not state where the
allev was. but When he reached the police
station he told Lieutenant Braj that a
strange man hid given him the coin near
the stock jards. He protested that he did
not know the menev was counterfeit. He
said the m in had run up to him .ind iven
him a pocketbook with the monev in it.
telling him that the police were after him
and as he had stolen the monej he did
not want to be found with anj on nim.
Johnson said thit he was a railroad
switchman from Fort Scott. Kas.. and
came to Kansas Citv on the Kansas City.
Fort Scott . Memphis road last evening.
He finally admitted that he was not a
switchman, but clung to his; statement that
he lived in Fort Scott
The police believe that he is a profes
sional crook. He Is about 02 or 33 jears
old. o feet 10 Inches high and weighs 163
pounds. Although he denied that he had
ever been under arrest, his actions con
vinced the police at No. 2 station that he
had served time In the penitentlarj-. He
appeared little disconcerted when placed In
a cell and made himself at home as soon
as he was locked in.
The money which Johnson was attempt
ing to pass was a verj- poor counterfeit.
It was almost entirelj of lead, was -verj'
dark and poorlv executed. It Is not be
lieved that Johnson has been In the city
long or has had a chance to put much
of the monej- In circulation.
