Effort JIadeby Louisyille Crowd
to ilob Starter.
Ertmn Allows St. ,Harcos to Get

Tremendous Killing Made Oyer
Uen Mac Dhui's Race.
Owner of Colt Said to Have
Cleared Up $25,000.
Xuisville, Ky, May 6. Saturday's
racing at Churchill down was wit
nessed by between 8,000 and 7,000 per
sona. The decided feature of the day
was the sensational demonstration
against Starter Curley Brown after the
start of the fifth race. An effort was
made to mob him. St. Jlarcos, a hot
favorite at 3 to 5, was given several
lengths the best of the start and the
Starter was loudly hissed. St. Marcos
won easily by two lengths and at the
finish there was a rush to the judges
and a vociferous clamor against allow
ing the race to stand. The services of
several policemen were necessary to
quiet the dissatisfied betters. The offi
cial result was as the horses had fin
ished. The feature of the card was the
Bluegrass stakes, the fourth race of the
card. This was at six and one-half
furlongs for 3-year-olds that had not
won a sweepstakes or two races prior
to the closing of this race. Amur and
Sannazarro. the colts who ran in the
I-erby, declined the issue, as did Spud
Caldwell. This left seven to face the
starter. Ben MacDhui, the 3-year-old
son of Bend Or-Sierra Madra, the prop
erty of Frank Bruhns & Co., was in
stalled favorite at 3 to 2 and he acted
as a vehicle for one of the biggest
"killings" of the meeting.
It is said the colt's owner bet J23.069
on him In the poolrooms throughout the
country. 'Whether this is true or not,
the bookmakers at the local track re
ceived a solar plexus wallop when he
passed first under the wire, an easy
winner by two lengths. Hundreds,
fifties, twenties and tens poured in on
him until the bookies were tired, and
liis price had been hammered down to
9 to 10 and in'a few books 1 to 2.
St. Marcos was another well played
good thing in the fifth race. In the last
race The Klector beat out the heavily
played odds-on favorite Dr. Riddle, the
latter being pinned almost against the
rail, where Cochran was unable to get
out of him his best efforts. Merry
maker and The Esmond were the other
good things that went wrong.
The feature of today's card will be the
Clark stakes, the second biggest race
of the meeting. It is not believed Alard
Scheck or Joe F"rey, Schorr's colts, will
start, as they are not in the form that

Sannazarro are. His Eminence is
picked as an easy winner of the event
and will be heavily played.
Pield Cay Between Missouri andEan
sas Set For May 18.
Lawrence.Kan., May 6. A large crowd
of Kansas university students was at
the Santa Fe depot Saturday night to
welcome the home-coming Jayhawkers
baseball team. Although there were no
bonfires there was a great sufficiency of
lusty "Rock Chalks." and the team was
cheered and congratulated -individually
and collectively.
The. boys played a..game at Columbia
and then hurried to the train, reaching
Lawrence about. midnight.
The team broke even, winning five
games,and losing five on the trip, but
two of the games lost were 3 to 2 games
and the team complains of toeing given
the worst of the decisions at Ivirksville,
where a 12 inning game went to the

The Mackay Horse Captures Metro
politan Handicap.
New Tork, May 6. The biggest crowd
since Pessara won in 1S!)2 saw Clarence
H. Mackay's Banaster win the Metro
politan handicap at Morris park. In a
fierce drive he beat Contestor a head,
while the 3-year-old All Green was
third, a length away. The time, 1:42 was
only fair.
The Metropolitan was the feature of
the opening day's meeting of the West
chester Racing association. From noon
until the first race was called crowds
poured into the track, and by the time
the first classic fixture of the eastern
racing season was run there were fully
25, (Mm) persons present. A better day
could not have been desired.
At the close of the betting Starbright.
owned by W. C. AVhitney, was settled
upon as the favorite at odds of 4 to 1,
while Banaster went to the post at 12
to 1.
The first break was a bad one, Banas
ter refusing, but on the second attempt
they got away in good order. Unmasked
took up the running and rushed up the
back stretch with Heliobas close by,
heads only separating them. Contestor
was the next in order, while Banaster
was rating along in seventh place. As
the horses rounded in to the turn of the
Withers mile, Ohom began to make his
move on Banaster, and as they neared
the turn in the stretch Banaster had
mowed the lot down one by one until
he was at the saddlegirths of the flying
leaders, and Odom held him there for
the final run through the stretch.
Around the turn they came, every one
having a clear field. Inch by inch, urg
ing with his hands, Odom sent Banaster
along until he had poked his nose In
front of Heliobas,, who dropped back
beaten. Then Banaster went after
Contestor, whom McCabe was driving
hard. In the meantime there was a wild
shout from the crowd, for All Green wan
coming with a rush. Odom, on Banas

Work Booming the Town.
Seattle, May 6. When the steamer Ell

the frozen regions of the north it carried
aboard as passenger ex-Gov. John W.
Leedy and family of Kansas, who were
booked on the register for Valdes, Alaska,
where they will make their home. The
family consisted of father, mother, two
daughters and a son the latter being but
14 years of age.
Mr. JLeedy Is a man of 60 years of age
and it shows considerable courage to once
more begin the business battle of life un
der such circumstances. But the port of
Valdes is having a boom now and the ex
governor may have selected the right
From every indication the traffic to
Valdes during the coming summer will be
a record breaker. Conservative transpor
tation men who are in close touch with
the northern trade say as much. The un
covering of the Chiatochina diggings, the
opening or tne an-American trail to tne
Yukon, the revival of activity at Valdes,
and other causes, have all had an influ
ence in starting a move of prospectors to
that district, w'hich is already shown in
the steamship sailings to the southwest
ern Alaska port.
The Plihu Thompson is packed from
forecastle to stern with freight. In addi
tion she has every passenger she can car
ry. The Thompson carries the largest
cargo, according to her capacity, taken
north on any Valdes vessel this spring,
among which is machinery, merchandise,
lumber, stock, etc.
The government is sending up a lot of
men and a large outfit on the vessel, fore
runners of a large government business
by the ail-American route.
This all goes to Valdes and will be used
in government work in that section.

Wichita, Kas., May 6. Estimates

Reno, Sedgwick and Sumner counties

wheat will be raised in those counties
Sumner promises to hold the banner
for another year, with an estimated
yield of 4,500,000 bushels. The aphis has
operated there to some extent, but not
so seriously as it was feared a week
ago. In the vicinity of the Chikaskia
river the wheat is heading out and al

inches high.
If nothing happens to injure the

When there is a natural and healtky circulation of the blood, the entire
quantity, estimated at one-eighth the weight of the body, passes through the heart

entrance of disease germs and impurities of every description. It filters out all that
is not necessary or good for the growth and development of the bcdy and nourish
