Game Old "Imp" Runs a Most Wonderful Race. Breaks Two World's Records and Track Marks . AT SHEEPSIIEAD BAY. Western Mare Gets Honors In Advance Stakes. Gas Rnhlin Issues an Edict to Champion Jeff. New Tork, July 2. The astounding performance of old Imp in the matter of showing a tremendous, sustained burst of speed and eclipsing some rec ords was the feature at Sheepshead Bay. Commando, too, was not actually in front when the flag fell in the Great Trial stakes, but he went through his horses as if they were tied to posts. It was not generally known before that William Lakeland is half owner in. this smashing colt. Commando. Lakeland has this partnership through the darn, Emma C, who used to race in his col ors. He gets half the winnings of the horse, and it is interesting to note that Lakeland, who trained Domino, believes that this son of the great son of Him yar is a great deal better horse than his sire. At any rate. Commando has the great advantage of being thorough ly sound, whereas Domino was, even as a yearling, more or less under sus picion. When the numbers went up for the Advance stakes old Imp had, only ITalcl of Harlem and Post Haste to go against and but 113 pounds to carry. Race there was none. Odom was up on the old mare, and he went right on with her. so that the others were literally never within hailing distance. The fractions were as follows: 0:49 1-5, 1:01 1-5. 1:14 1:26 4-5, 1:39 2-5. 1:52 2-5, 2:05, 2:18 1-5, 2:32. 2:45 1-5, 2:59 1-5. Only two actual world's records were broken, viz., one mile and three-eighths in 2: IS 1-5, as against 2:1S and the full distance in 2:59 1-5, which is only the twentieth of a second faster than Ben Holladay's 2:194. Of course the shorter record does not go officially, as it was not the full distance of the race. Imp also aemol ished a lot of track records. It is a wonderful performance, princi pally from the extraordinary ease with which it was done. The race was the first longdistance event to have its start on the new futurity course, ann. as in the sprinting events, the new course proved to be a vast improvement over the old. With the exception of AI bula. in the firt race, all the winners were well backed, 'though only three of them, including Imp, were actual favor ites. NELSON WTN3 A QEEAT RACE. Chicago Cyclist Beats Champion and Pierce After Meeting Accident. Boston, July 2. Johnnie Nelson, the little Swede from Chicago, Saturday made Champion and Pierce look like second-raters in the 20 mile motor pac ed race at Charles River track. The much-heralded Albert Champion of Paris was really beaten by more than two laps and Pierce, who sprang into the cycling eye with a rush by defeat ing Michael, was a lap and a half be hind the boy from the west. According to the scorers. Nelson won by a lap and 50 yards over Champion and a half lap over Pierce. The fact is, Nelson gained a lap before eight miles had been ridden, when his tire picked up a nail thrown on the back stretch by some miscreant. In changing from his njured wheel to another he lost this well-earned lap and nearly 100 yards more. This did not worry the little fellow, as he settled in behind Henshaw and Hed- stron, and before the race had been fin ished he gained another lap on Cham pion, who had made up the first, and a half lap on Pierce, who had also made up his loss of the first eight miles. Champion ruled favorite and Pierce was second choice. Nelson's time for the 20 miles was 37:09 4-5, Pierce's 37:42 3-5 and Champion's 38:02 2-5. PENNSYLVANIA WON Ahead of "Wisconsin in the 'Varsity Boat Race by a Narrow Margin. Poughkeepsie, N. T.. July 2. One of the most magnificent races in the . his tory of college aquatics for years was the "varsity race rowed in the Hudson. course Saturday afternoon.

Here is the record: University race; distance, four miles. Contestants: Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Cornell, Columbia and Georgetown. Conditions: Smooth water, a rather brisk northwesterly wind and a fairly strong ebb tide. Rowed at 6:55 o'clock.

In this event there was never at any time open water between the crews that finished first and second. RXTHLIN ISSUES EDICT. Unless Jeffries Signs Articles Within Week He Will Fight Fitz. New Tork.

CoffeyYille, Neodesha and Cher ryvale in the Circuit. Independence, July 2. A company of eastern capitalists has been organized and has commenced the preliminary work of obtaining a franchise for an electric railway line between Independ ence, Coffeyville, Cherryvale and Neod esha. The line will be after the same plan as the one now in operation be tween Galena, Webb City and Joplin, but will be considerable longer. The men comprising the company, have visited the gas belt of Kansas and are confident that a line of this kind would be a pay ing investment and that It will have to be built in the near future. Independence will be the center of the road and the headquarters and offices of the company will be established here. Three branch roads will start from this city, one to each of the three towns, making a total mileage of 50 miles.

Address, THE SWIFT HORSE SHOW ENDS Finest Exhibition of the Kind Ever Seen in Topeka. A Large Crowd Witnesses the Closing Performance. WHAT WAS TO BE SEEN Millionaire Armour Tried His Best to Win $5 Prize. He . Failed, but Enjoyed the Excitement. Horse shows bring together a strange mixture of people. As strange a crowd as is attracted by politics. From the grand stand and carriages society, for it is for the elite that such shows are given, watch stable boys and million aires hobnobbing in the exhibitions' ring. Everything is horsey, the people, the talk and the clothes. Saturday at the -second annual horse show was no exception and those who paid 50 cents to witness the programme saw a millionaire, A. Watson Armour of Kansas City, doing his best to win a $5 prize, and also saw him fail. It was in the potato race during the evening. On the north side of the arena was a sack of potatoes. In front of the grand stand was a large bucket. The contestants were mounted on polo ponies and were armed with long sharp sticks. Like knights of old the six contestants lined up in front of the bucket and were in structed to ride to the potato sack.spear an innocent Murphy, ride back to the bucket, deposit the potato and go back for another as often as they could in six minutes. "Go," shouted the referee and away dashed the potato racers for the supply sack. At a breakneck speed they charged for the potatoes, pulled up their ponies and jabbed at the sack. The first to emerge from the struggling mass was Ed Sims, of Kansas City. He depos ited the potato in the bucket and scur ried back for another. Half way he met Armour who landed his potato in the bucket and dug spurs into his pony and galloped back for more. For six min utes they raced back and forth, some times losing their potatoes on the way and sometimes failing to land them in the bucket. At the end of six minutes it was found that Sims had deposited 8 potatoes in the bucket and won the $5 prize while his millionaire friend had to be content with second place and no money. But he doesn't need it. There is another war started and his family will be interested in .rushing meat to China instead of potatoes into a bucket. O. P. Updegraff, of Topeka, who Is known throughout the country as a horseman and successful race starter. was master of ceremonies.But although he is"decidedly horsey.don't you know," he made a serious mistake and was set back 10 points for blundering. He an nounced during the performance that "Limestone Belle will give an exhibi tion of . high school gaits." That was awful. In the lexicon of the horseman there is no such term as "high school gaits." In the programme of the show was a page devoted to "horse show don'ts" and among them is a warning as follows to save any of the uninitiated from making a bull. The warning is "Don't say 'high school gaits.' They are movements." Updegraff will have to read up. But whether they were gaits or move ments Limestone Belle's exhibition was received with applause. WTith Ed Sims "up,"that's very horsey.she went through all the movements possible to the stir ring strains of a cake walk time. While not so good a performer as "Miss Rex" who was exhibited here last year she is certainly a wonder and displays an amount of Intelligence that would do a lot of people devoid of horse sense a deal of good. Of course a horse show is never suc cessful without a few features not on the programme. This show had them. In the afternoon in the sporting or hunt ing tandem class Ed Sims and D. Low and a team which did eerything they were intended to. They were hitched to a two-wheeled hunting cart. The lead er carried a saddle and the contest was to drive up to within a short distance of a hurdle, unhitch the leader, the dri ver mount him, and take" him over a regulation jump. The leader was too anxious to make the Jump and wound himself up in the harness,, "jack knifed" and kept a half dozen stable men run ning after him and hollering "whoa" and "get up" in a very unhorse Bhow manner. Sims was driving and Low was beside him. Sims wore a coat as red as the jacket made famous by Frank Dan iels in "The Idol's Eye' 'and Mr. Low was dressed In a Prince Albert and silk hat and carried a cane. The leader was bound to turn the cart over and suc ceeded in running one of the wheels half way up the side of the hurdle before the cart would tip. But it finally did tip and most beautifuHy. It turned bottom side up but the occupants landed on tbeir feet without a spot on the red coat or a ruff on their hats. " In this class A. E. Ashbrook's Bonnie Lass and Quo Vadis took first. The Ar row and mate, belonging to the same man, second, and Sims and Low's team third. There were three contestants. In the roadsters, with appointments class, Low's Silverthorn took first, J. M. Wells, of Jefferson City, second, with Princess Peach and Dr. George C. Pritchard's Phyllis Tee third.

Little Queen, was the decided favorite with the audience, and carried oft first prize after an excellent exhibition of horsemanship. A. E. Ashbrook's Lady smith took second and The Arrow third. For pacing horses Silkwood, - owned and driven by J. Willets, of Topeka, easily carried off first prize. Kansas and Topeka boasts of many wonderful horses, but none greater than Silkwood. He- is thirteen years old, a solid black and as handsome a horse as can be found. His driver, although 76 years old, was not outdone by - anyone on the grounds. Silkwood holds a pacing rec ord in harness of 2:07, and driverless on the Santa Ana and Santa Rosa tracks in California made a record of 2:074. Charles H. Samson's Anna Rose, named for the queen of Hilo, took second. The horse show grounds resembled "Buffalo Bill's Wild West" with its own traveling electric light plant. The side walls were of canvas and no top: To carry the impression that within. th walls was the congress of rough riders the park saddle horses dashed into the arena while the band played. Charles Ridgeway, assistant superintendent of insurance and ex-promoter of the Franklin county fair, was on hand as a judge. He scoffed, while the sun shone, at silk hats, and wore a wide brimmed white sombrero. He "decided to try the hurricane deck of one of the steeds, and asked the rider to let him ride a while. He got on deck all right but, after a few heavy seas, he refused to entertain the -crowd any longer and slid down to a surer footing. Ash brook's Glenarm took first, Armour's Queensbury second and Sims' Gold Cup third. In the pony turnout class J. S. Coe's Robah and Cherry took first and H. A. Hodgins' Sebee second. In the heavy weight hunter class Ashbrook's Glen arm took first and his Bonnie Lass sec ond. Low's Cascarea third. - Saturday night saw the largest crowd that has attended the show and num bered about S00. The seats at the west end were filled and when the program was about half completed the-seats very kindly started to gradually sink to the ground- instead of going down without warning. The crowd quickly vacated the seats. The supports to the seats were two-by-fours, and expected to hold a large crowd. A special class of four-in-hand di-aft horses were exhibited. The four bays of the Chicago Lumber company trotted around with three tons of lumber and were given first prize. The Topeka Pa per company took second.
