HUH IIS IN
SECOND BIG EVENT
Question of Veight Iftguyes
in Centenario Handicap
at Juarez Meet.
Harrigan -won the Centenario handi
cap, the second big event of the Juarez
races Sunday by defeating 'Meadow
over Uhe mile course out of the shoot.
Weight was the difference in this
event, so nearly matched were the
horses. Harrigan. had been given
weight by both Meadow and Taboo,
the winner of the opening handicap
Thanksgiving. He was carrying 10S
pounds on board, while Meadow sad
dled 115 and Taboo 113. Jack Atkin,
of whom much was expected, was bur
dened with 127 and was never In the
race, as he is not yet in condition.
Harrigan went out In front and led all
the way. Meadow took second from
Lomond at the three-quarters and
challenged in the stretch. It was a
pretty exhibition coming home, but
Harrigan was out for a winning and
crossed the line a length and better
to the good, with Meadow a second
and Taboo third. Meadow's move was
made at the Tight time, jockey Moles
wornh holding her steady in her course
until the straightaway, when Ihe gave
her the reins and defied the wlnner
Merely a Romp for Helen Scott.
Helen Scott twostepped the first race
to the music of the hand. It was a
little Sunday afternoon romp for her
and she made her barrier lead a 12
length stretch of landscape before the
finish post was passed. Juarez -failed
to show the class his backers wished,
although he ran well in front of the
other youngsters at the finish. Geht
nicht was third, because there was none
better and came on with a real show
of speed. The rest ran. Benschoten
sent Marian Casey against the rail at
ithe stretch turn and captured first
money by his daring. Marian got away
in front, but was back in fournx place
at the half and was beating only Ma
nila at the three-quarters. Then the
clever kid made his rail move and cut
into second place "behind Flying PearL
T&e Pearl Girl could not stand the
strain of a driving finish to "beat Mar
Ian Casey after she had set all the
pace. .She was second and Periwinkle
Trance Not Sleeping.
Trance awoke at the barrier and
"Went out in front at the half, taking
Ihe third' race from Ocean Queen, wlho
jnoved up strong at the finish and
took second money. Angelus had
plenty of early speed but was out at
the finish for lack of campaigning in
toils altitude. Kopek, a last season's
winner would- not be denied in the
fifth race. She was cut off soon after
the start, came up and finished first
ahead of a field of six by making a
wide swing out the outside turn and
outgaming Pedro for first. Pedro ran
his race and was fairly beaten by Ko
pek. Shelly was third ahead of Cross
over and Gypsy King.
Elder Wins Final Event.
Elder took the final race of the day
from Sir Barry, who gave away weight
j to the winner in the five furlong dash.
JMaer got away in tront, but was nosed
out by Spooner, who could not hold
the pace and dropped back to sixth
place- It was Elder the remainder of

JOHN GRIFFIN LOSES
Last Year's Favorite Loses
Principal Event at
It was an old favorite against a new
one in the Hidalgo handicap at Ter
razas park Saturday John Griffin, the
pet of the paddock during the pre
vious meeting, was called upon to
make a winning of this five furlong
event. But Follie Levy, a newepmer,
outgeneraled the old Griffin horse and
finished in front after Griffin had run
one of the gamest races of his career.
He got away for the pace and kept it
all the way, taking the lead into the
stretch by a length. There Levy took
command and nosed a victory away
from the. 1909 favorite, who was beat
en out of second position by Royal
Captive, who came on to close the gap.
Rice was astride the winner and pilot
ed his mount in behind the pacemaker
until the time came for the king row
The youngsters had their Inning in
the first race when the 2yearold
maidens were sent to the post for a
winning. Sigurd was the favorite and
responded to the clever handling of
jockey Murphy like a seasoned cam
paigner. Fred Essen offered the op
position and was bounding along in
firs place at the stretch, but tho
Brandt colt was ready for the move
and made it at the right time. Little
Friar was third by sufferance. The
second race was a hare and hounds
event, with little Molesworth on Bob
Lynch setting all the pace the favorites
wished. He was out in front all the
way and the race "was to the swift for
27 once. iiaaen nana remained niaaen
37 until the three-quarters pole, -when he
26 Kwent out for a flash of form, winning

event, a 2yearold race for five and one
half furlongs. Sterlin allowed the
three others to set all the pace that
was needed in the early stages, going
up a- the half and putting another
winning over for jockey Molesworth.
Uncle Ben's race was a credit to his
barn and shows his merit. Mockler
was third because he was. third.
A lon shot winner took what little
money was offered in the fifth. This
was Hannis from the Henry stables.
Hannis came from bejiind and finished
byby a length In the lead over the fa
vorites, who quit when Hannis went
up top. Fred Mulholland and Dorante
settled the score they had held since
opening day when Fred put it over
the Brajndt horse by taking the long
distance Marathon. They were carry
ing equal weights and the race was a
horse and horse one until the stretch,
when Mulholland made his move to no
avail, Us the Dorante horse was out

a rain storm and tire trouble, Emil
Gruenfeldt, chief engineer of the
Baker Motor Vehicle Company arivrag
a shaft-driven Baker electric Victoria,
broke all world's mileage records for
electric automobiles Wednescjay No
vember 9, when he drove 244.5 miles on
a single charge. The total running;
time for the trip was nineteen hours
and twenty mlntftes, giving an average
of 12.6S miles per hour. Charles G.
Stein'nauer, automobile editor of the
Cleveland Leader, was chosen observer,
and at no time was out of sight of the ;,;
test car. The odometer on Mr. Gruen
feldt's car was checked constantly by
another Instrument on the observer's
car. At the end of the run Mr. Gruen
feldt announced that the Edison forty
cell battery used In the test would be
capable of an even greater mileage
after further use. Althougn not
"green," the battery was still "too
new." He further 'stated that the
strenuous trip proved the high effi
ciency of the Edison battery and the
entire absence of friction in the shaft
driven Baker, and with; this car chal
lenged the world
Adverse Weatker CoBdiUeBs.
The run was etarted from, tae plant
of the Baker Motor Vehicle Company
at 7:30 a. m November 9, and the
route chosen was over the roads of
Cuyahoga county Just west of, and In
cluding the suburbs of Cleveland. Al
though Mr. Gruenfeldt was advised that
the TJ. S. weather bureau of Cleveland,
reported an official temperature of only
44 degrees Fahrenheit, and that the
wind was blowing at the rate of twenty
miles on liour, the intrepid engineer,
with a grim smile, "started the juice"
and beaded the car into the wind.
The run was continued, without a
single stop until S oclock In the even
ing, when a five-minute stop was mad
for lunch. Starting- the car again Mr.
Gruenfeldt continued until 2:55 Thurs
day morning, satisfied with the re
sults obtained. The oar was driven
back to the factory, a stop made while
the nignt watchman was routed out
and the car placed upon the floor un
der its own power.
Rain Siorra Breaks.
The first 100 miles was recorded ai
3 oclock in the afternoon when the cai
was easily doing fifteen miles per nous
in a strong side wind. Two nunared
miles was recorded at 11:20 oclock,
when a rainstorm, which had threat
ened all day, broke. At this time the
car had made 211.5 miles- at an average
speed of 13.2 miles per "hour. Tne last
44.5 miles were finished in the rain,
drenching Mr. Gruenfeldt ana rencer
ing the roads slippery and treacherous.
To make matters worse the rront tire
developed a slow puncture and gradu
ally flattened, reducing the mileage of
the car. This puncture was not re
paired until after the run was com
pleted. When the dash clock recorded 2:55
oclock, Thursday morning', and the
odometer recorded 244.4 miles, weatner
conditions became so disagreeanie utat
Mr. Gruenfeldt decided to drive the
car to the factory and enjoy a much
deserved rest. "For the third time the
Baker electric has broken the world's
mileage record.." stated Mr. Gruenreidt
when he had finished. "I am not only
satisfied with the efficiency of the Edi
son battery and the Baker frictlonless
construction, but am ready at any time
to drive against any electric automo
bile made, my opponent to cover tne
same course under the same conditions
and with the same equipment."
