The hotel registers to-day aro well
filled with names. Aud tho most of tho
names aro tboso of nion from Now York,
Louisville, Boston and Cincinnati, placos
wbero men who "follow tbo races" gen
erally bail from, Tho meeting which
opened at Ivy City lo-day Is what brings
theso gentlemen here. They aro all well
dressed and well-bohaved.
Thoro Is a peculiarity about tho dross,
bowovcr, that would sttlkoonont any tlmo.
It is not loud nor flashy. It Is simply dis
tinctive. And thoir talk and bearing aro
also distinctive. Thoy drink, but drink
moderately. They bavo splendid nppotltos.
Their appetites are, In fact, as wldcawako
as their general bearing. Cue thing that
tboy aio ready (o do at nuy tlmo is to hot.
They will bet on anything.
Seated in tho bllliard-ionm of a hotel
ono of them will turn to tho other and say
quietly, novor having seen cither of tho
players before, "I will go you $23 that
tho tall man wins," and tho other mau
takes tho hot. It scorns to bo part of thoir
naturo to bet. And to-day thoy havo becu
inonding their tlmo hotting on trillc3 beforo
tuey comiucnco with their monoy to bet on
tho races, which thoy by no means consider
hides, but rather a business in which tho
smallest man is tho winnor.
When thoy order anything thov ordor tho
best. Said a down-town cigai -stand keopor
to tbo reporter: "I don't sco how It Is. But
not ono of them fellers has como hero and
oidcrcd a cigar that cost less "than n quartor.
They gotorally say when thoy como up to
tbo stand, 'glvo mo four for a dollar,' and
they put out tho dollar to pay for them,
' Besides tbo mon who "follow tho racos"
to bet Individually, without any iutoicst
other than their sovoral vouturcs, thcro uro
about twonty men hero who aro book
makers. These gontlomcn havo acharactor
and piofcssion of their own, Tnoy do not
risk very much, luij; tboy offer such odds
that at tho end of a meeting they aro pretty
well in pocket.
Tho all-absorbing topic of conversation

fiom what thoy havo dono formorly, aud

at tho distance Miss Goodrich should get
tho place, with Eva K. closo up. For tho
Analostan Stakes, although Tecumsoh will
start favorlto, WIckham will como vory
near winning it, with a closo finish also
with Harcfoot and Tecumsch. For tho
third event, ono of tho lighter wolghtcd
horsos is liable to win, either King Tom, or
Lull! S., though Qucon Esther will bo right
up at tbo finish. For tho National Handi
cap, Bowie's Besslo will likely laud It,
though the finish should bo a closo ono
with Chanticleer, Swift and Colonol
Spraguc. Hilarity will win tho last raco,
with John Sullivan or Frankle B, for tho
First race, six furlongs, King Lion won,

Tho Washington public is long suffering,
