JAY-IIYK-hL!!" :;i VINSHIl'" JII'AT
Tin: j:kcoi:i.
Providence, Aug. 1. Jay-Kye-See,
on tlie Xarragaufcett track to-day,
surpassed all iirevious performances,
making a, mile in :10, thus beating
his own previous reconi of 2:10, and
that of Maud S. of 2:10. Tlie crowd
also witnessed the famou.s black geld
ing H. JJ. Winship and mate beat
their double-team record of 2;9, and
also that of Frank and mate of 2:8J.
The postponement of these events
from "Wednesday was a great disap
pointment to turfmen in all particu
lars, and the heavy rains threatened
the relinquishment of the exhibition.
The genial sunshine and invigorating
air to-day, however, were welcomed
with widespread enthusiasm, and
Trackmaster Griffin speedily brought
the circuit into admirable condition,
although the surface was not as firm
and springy as he desired.
The owners of the favorite horses
Jay-Eye-See and H. B. Winship J.
I. Case and J. B. Bainaby were in
the middle tier of of the grand stand,
with their wives, and watched the
events with intense interest.
TIIK PRELIMINARIES.
The pool booths were in active
operation, and betting on the ebon
trotter was at the odds of $25 to $10
that he would beat the reccrd, while
Winship and mate were still firmer
favorites. The judges selected were :
John Shepard of Boston, Frank S.
Stevens of Swansea, Mass., and E. G.
"Windsor of Providence. The first
event, the trial of Jay-Eye-See, was
promptly called at 3 o'clock. Long
before the time set for the beginning
of the trials every seat in the enor
mous grand stand was filled, while
every xoint favorable to a good view
of the track had its occupant. Pre
sently there was a movement in the
direction of the stables, and Ed.
Biihers, the driver of Jay-Eye-See,
was seen preparing to jog the little
wonder, his purple cap and driving
jacket making him a conspicuous
figure in the groups in front of the
quarters of the horses. Jay-Eye-See
was brought out blanketed, and was
soon hitched to a sulky. Bithers
took his place behind him, and the
little flyer, followed by a crowd of
admirers, jogged to the gate leading
to the stretch.
THE WARMING-UP " MILE.
As the multitude on the grand
stand caught sight of the famous
horse a shout of greeting swelled
forth, which was taken up by groups
in other parts of the grounds, and as
the noble animal turned into the
stretch, and passed down in front of
the judges' stand, the applause rose
in a deafening cheer. The circuit of
the track was made at easy gait, and,
after two or more turns, Bithers sig
nified his intention to go an easy
mile to warm up. The announce
ment was made by the judges, aud
.Jay-Eye-See came down at an easy
pace. He went away from the wire
trotting evenly, and. without a flaw,
though, of course, Bithers had to
hold him back. He went up to the
quarter-post in 055. The second
quarter was somewhat slower, and he
passed the half in 1:12J, and three
qarters in 1:49, jogging under the
wire in The horse was theu
taken back to the stable to be rubbed
down.
THE GREAT TRIAL OF SPEED.
After this came the great event of
the day and the greatest event in the
history of the trotting turf. Jay-Eye-See
came on the track aud as he
swung into the stretch the judges an
nouced that he would make an at
tempt to break his record. Jim Mur
phy, behind his own running horse,
was also on the stretch, limbering
out, as he was to go a mile with Jay-Eye-See,
to give the little flyer cour
age, and force 14m to a faster gair,
if necessary. After Jogging down
the stretch once or twice Jay-Eye-See
turned at the distance stand aud
came down the wire for the word.
He was working magnificently, and
as "Go!" was shouted by Mr. Wind
sor the little gelding sped away
around the turn, with the runner
about eight lengths behind. Never
did a horse work more evenly than
did Jay-Eye-See as he sped around
the turn, and it seemed as if he was a
piece of machinery and not a thing
with life, so perfect was his action.
Up to the quarter he went in 0:33,
with the runner trailing four lengths
behind, and as he sped into the
THE PACIFIC COMMERCIAL ADVERTISER,
ihti,but imiim nrr-"""""
straight Bithers cut him loose.
Faster and faster were his strides,
and it was evident that "Ed" meant
to send him at his best.
At the half-mile the watches regis
tered 1:05, a 2:10 gait, and if he could
hold his own for the last half all
knew that he would accomplish an
unprecedented feat. Around the up
per turn it seemed as if he was flying,
and fast as had been his gait on the
back stretch, it was forced up now to
something terrific. On and on he
went, without suspicion of a break,
passing the three-quarter post in 1:39.
At this point the runner came up
even with the trotter, and now began
the final struggle. Down he came
without a skip, every stride telling
in the momentous race against the
fast-flying seconds. Bithers had not
yet used his whip. The gallant flyer
speeded down to the stand and under
the wire.
THE RECORD BEATEN.
There was a momentary bustle and
then suddenly the cry "He has done
it!" was .raised by those among the
spectators who had timed him. A
loud burst of applause greeted the an
nouncement, only to be followed by
a much more enthusiastic demonstra
tion as the board swung around with
the record "2-10" upon it. Never on
the race-track has there been a scene
of wilder excitemen.t than followed
tlie announcement. Hats, canes,
handkerchiefs and fans were waved,
while men shouted themselves
hoarse in cheering the king of the
American turf. When Bithers came
back to the stand with Jay-Eye-See
a magnificent horseshoe of flowers
was presented to him, while around
him gathered a group of admiring
friends offering hearty congratula
tions. Mr. Case, owner of Jay-Eye-See,
was overjoyed and received a
shower of congratulations with the
plainest manifestations of delight.
With reference to Jay-Eye-See's
time, there were necessarily fractional
differences. Case and many other
experienced time-keepers placing the
figures at 2:091.
ANOTHER UNPRECEDENTED EVENT.
During the time Maxy Cobb was
trotting, Winship and mate were on
the track warming up for their heat.
After circling the track once or twice,
the pair came down the stretch, and
Jim Golden nodded far the word,
and the pair were sent away in good
style. Winship trotted around the
turn in faultless style, though his
mate, Gabe Case, was lagging a little.
Up to the quarter they went in 0:30
without a hitch of any kind. Once in
the straight, Golden cut the trotter
loose and theu the gait was lorced up.
Although Winship was doing most of
the work, and seemed to be pulling
the runner, he was at the half in the
unprecedented time of 1:01$ a 2:03
gait, Here Golden began to hold
Winship for the finish, and the run
ner was allowed to do a little of the
work around the upper turn. The
third quarter was covered in 1:34,
and then the team swung into the
stretch for the closing struggle. Down
they came, Winship pulling his mate
so that Golden had to put the whip to
the runner to keep him up to his
work. Winship was trotting as evenly
as clockwork, and as he came under
the wire in magnificent form, a
shout arose even on the judges' stand,
and in a moment deafening applause
greeted the announcement of the
time 2:06. Thus, Winship and mate
have accomplished the great feat of
reducing by 2 seconds the famous
record of 2:0SJ made by Frank and
mate.
Inventive Quakers.
The peculiar sect known as the " Shak
ing Quakers 7t deserve credit for many of
the useful inventions of the present. More
than half a century ago they first origin
ated the drying of sweet corn for food,
and they first raised, papered, and vended
garden seeds in the present styles. From
their first methods of preparing medicinal
roots and herbs for market sprung the
immense patent medicine trade. They
began the broom-corn business. The
first buzz-saw was made by the Shakers at
New Lebanon. This is now in the Albany
Geological Ilall. The Shakers invented
metallic pens, first made of brass and
siiver. All distilled liquors were aban
doned as a beverage by the Shakers sixty
years ago, and during the past forty years
no fermented liquor of any sort has been
used, except as a medicine. Pork and
tobacco are among the " forbidden ar-
tide
