Starting race horses is a fine art, and
the man who fancies it isn't will never lie
convinced until he stands, flag in hand,
facing 10,000 persons, nudwith a dozen
or so thoroughbreds, ridden by anxious
jockeys, upon the track, each rider doing
his best to get an advantage over bis
fellows. In 19 cases out of 20 it is not
tho thoroughbred that is to Maine for
the trouble at the post, nor is it the
Jockey directly, but it is the owner,
trainer or some speculator in tho back
ground who has told the jockey to get
off in front, jio matter what happens,
and who has promised to pay his tine or
roimbnrse him for any penalty he may
Incur in carrying out instructions. It
is all very well to sit in the grand stand
and criticise, the work of the starter.
One must try the business himself to
appreciate its difficulties and its trials.
It is a much harder task to start race
horses as we race in this country than
in England, France. Austria or Aus
tralia, where the pace is verv slow at
the start, and a length or two advantage
when the flag falls does not count for
much. With us, and especially of late
years, since the system of short dashes
has become so popular with horse own
ers, which, by the way, has had such a
depressing influence on the improve
ment of the blooded horse, the style
has been to ride pellmell from the. start,
and races are won and lost very frequent
ly when the flag falls. Judgment of
pace is fast becoming a lost art, and
even our best jockeys now, with very
rare exceptions, have no more idea of
race riding than to get sway well and
take the shortest course home in the
quickest possible fashion. Consequently
every boy becomes imbued with tho
idea tli.it to win he must get off in
The reader can easily picture to him
self the scene at the post when there
are 15 or 20 horses, many of them rid
den by boys not 16 years of age, all of
whom have been told some of them
with threats and others with promises
of large rewards to get the best of the
start. Any visitor to our race tracks is
familiar with the scene at the post.
Half a dozon horses will ru--;h away at
a false break when there is no possible
chance for an equitable start, and when
they come trotting back and before they
have had time to wheel and get into
lino those that remained behind the
first time will dash out and run perhaps
a hundred yards, leaving the first squad
in their places. This goes on indefinite-
The public is also familiar with the
sight of one or more horses standing
motionless some lengths behind their
competitors. The starter asks tho riders
of the horses in advance of the laggards
to wait until they have taken their po
sitions. Each boy seems to think it is
his bonndeu duty to walk his horse
when those in the rear attempt to move
up at a walk and to break away madly
if an attempt is made by those behind
to come up at a run.
A starter should have a thorough
knowledge of racing, should lie a man
of a high degree of intelligence, be
quick of eyo and hand and, above all,
lie of unimpeachable integrity. Tho is
sue of many thousands of dollars, often
times hundreds of thousands of dollars,
is decided by the fall of his red flag,
and it is bis duty to see that every
horse, no mutter by whom he is owned,
has an equal chance when he leaves the
post. Every effort is made to catch the
horses in motion and on as nearly even
terms as possible. The eye must take
in the field in a twinkling, and if the
judgment is tiiat the start is satisfacto
ry the hand will act in unison with the
eye and the brain.
Very often horses are in bad places.
and what might look to be a good start
from the grand stand would be a poor
one in the judgment of the starter, and
the flag does not fall. Criticism follows.
and generally it is of the harshest and
most unjust character. Some horses are
quicker on their feet than others and
will make a good start look like a poor
one through their ability to get under
way much more rapidly than their com
petitors. A good start when the flag
drops becomes to the unthinking and
ignorant a poor start, and abuse is heap
ed uMu the head of the official.
From time to time mechanical appli
ances for starting race horses have been
invented, but they have not been prac
tical aud have not achieved success.
A swinging gate to be raised by electrici
ty was spoken of some time ago, but
fractious thoroughbreds could not lie
got near it There are, again, horses
that are not to be controlled at times,
and collisions with the obstacle would
undoubtedly be of daily occurrence.
Then, too, it would take mouths of drill
ing to get horses to overcome the idea
that they were not going to ruu into
the gate. This and many other objec
tions can be raised against this system.
A western inventor has patented a gate
to be lowered before the horses while
they stand at the post, which may be
moved away from them at a rapid rate
of speed by electric power, the barrier
moving onward aud upward at the same
time. New York Sun.

Field's minstrels appear at Har
per's theatre tomorrow evening. The
liristol, Tenn., Courier gives this
recommendation for the attraction:
The theatrical season in Bristol
was ortcned last nirht bv Al
Field's big minstrel company. A
better show could not have been se
lected to open the house, and the au
dience was delighted with the pro
gram offered them. The comedians
are Al Field, Tommy Donnelly, Har
ry Shunk and E. M. IIaK. and all of
them arc stars. Al Field is probably
the best minstrel exponent of the
genuine southern nigger' on the
stage. Every act and every word of
his is so true to life that it is ex-
cxtrcmelv comical. The fat. lay
drawling way of AI's would make a
sick man laugh. E. M. Hall, banjo
ist. sent the audience wild with de
light. Nothing like his playing has
ever been heard here. He is a ucjrro
comedian of the first rank, and is full
of an indescribable drollery that is as
unique as it is irresistible. The
Martinnetti brothers did a splendid
tumbling act; the Alvarez family
did a novel and charming musical
act; Arthur Yule,' triple-voiced vo
calist and mimic, delighted the audi
ence. The vocalists of the show are
many, and all of them arc good. The
show last night strengthened the
popular verdict: "The best minstrel
show on record."
The drawing-room atmosphere of
Lady Wmdemere's Fan," which is
to be seen at the New Grand, Haven
port, Thanksgiving dav for matinee
and evening, is trreatlv appreciated
by the better element of theatrego

the new operatic comedy '-Dorcas,
said to be best work of that brilliant
writer, Edward Panlton, whose name
is weil known to fame as the writer
of the operas, Erminic," Niobe."
etc. On its musical side, Dorcas,"
which is in three nets, is said to be
replete with delightful and pleasing
music; and of its dramatic worth it
is said to be one of the best of the
latter day contributions to stage lit
erature. Miss Hall is one of our
greatest prima donnas and counts
Iter admirers by the score here, and
in "Dorcas" we are promised a most
delightful entertainment, ns it com
prises the double charm of refined
comedy and opera, presented by an
exceptionally strong and brilliant
company. The prices for Pauline

$1.50 for parquet'seats, but this time
Manager Riley has induced the com
pany to charge only the regular
house prices. 25, 50, 75 cents and $1.

be packed at both performances.
