A SI1CESSFU1 MEETING.
SThough the Helena Races Closed in a Rain the Assoolation Did Betting Was Livelier Here Than Anywhere Else on the Oiroult. The Last Day's Winners Wore Flora E., Klamath, Gold Bar aend Tom Me Tague's Zora. The most esunessful meeting on the Hel ena race track for many years, from a finan nial standpoint, ended yesterday in a rain, and the last two races were run between the drops. One thing that helped sake the meeting so successful was the interest manifested in the betting, and this in no small measure was due to the fact that part of the business was entrusted to men who make it a business and who attend to it as a strict business matter. The amount of money that passed through the boxes, auc tion and mutualr,was $176,498. This enabled the assoeiation and the pool sellers both to make money. Interest was added to the sport by the really fine music furnished by the Boston and Montana band, under Leader Trelar. The band is made up of prastical miners from Butte, and the way they were treated at the grounds and in the city showed how Belena and Montana peo ple appreciate good music. One horseman was so struck with an air that was played one afternoon that he dropped a gold dou ble eagle into the leader's hand and told him to have the performers drink to his health. As the band is a very temperate one it will take them some time to finish with this compliment. Leader Trelar desires to extend his thanks to the public generally, to the Montana club, to the Elks and to all others who were inter ested in giving the band such a cordial re eeption. The attendance at the fair grounds has been large most of the time, and the fall ing of in the last two days was due en tirely to the state of the weather. Gus Carleton's balloon ascension and parachute drop only took place once, but that was the fault of the wind and not of the boy. Clancy and Bob Smith led off with the largest number of suecessful mounts among the jockeys. Each rode the winner five times, though Clancy had but nine mounts and Smith thirteen. Bustillos rode two winners out of eleven starts,. and Jimmy Myers two out of five. Reed came in first twice out of six starts. Sutton and Meyer each rode a winner once. THE RACES. Flora r., Klamath, Gold Bar and the Field Pay Their Backers. The first race of the day was a fins one, with a good field of five starters. The die tane was three furlongs, and Gray Rooster, Flora E., Little Joe, Later On and Mike r Brown came to the post. Flora E. was favorite in the pools at $30, Gray Rooster $20. Mike Brown $12, Later On $8 and Little Joe $5. Gray Rooster got to the front at the start, with Mike Brown and I Flora E. running second and third and well 1 up with the leader, Later On and Little Joe side by side in the rear. Coming around into the homestretch they were all in a bunch and the whips were going ap and down. Then Flora E. and Mike Brown left the pack and came toward the wire for an oat and out horse race. Fifty yards from the wire Brown mane a magnificent spurt and went up to the favorite's saddle and then acept npinchbyineh until at the finish Flora E. had it by a neck only. Later On was third, Gray Rooster fourth and Little Joe last. It was a fine finish. lpunning-S hree-eighths of a mile, purse $200. J. B. outoon's b. m.

Though the cord weather was against Florida, yet with Ben Kinney driving she sold favorite for the first heat of the free for-all trot at $75 to Thornless $55, Kla math $25, and Sister V $18. After several bad breaks the four got off together in I good shape. Making the first turn Sister I V and Klamath broke, and Florida and T hornless went to the front, where they kept together down the bacu stretch until directly opposite the judges' stand, when the black mare fell back to second place, Klamath still moving along under a heavy pull in third place. It looked like a race between Thornless and Klamath as they came around into the home stretch, the latter going up past Florida like a flash. Half-way down Thornless went off his I feet end fell back to third place, while Klamath drew to the front and won easily, with Florida second. Only six mutuals were sold on the winner, and they paid $76.45. Florida was not such a strong favorite for the next heat, larmath selling up nearly even with her, and Thornless bring ing about half the other two, ister V. about one-sixth. T'Ihornless again aparr ently bhad the heat until Klamath, after laying back most of the way, walked to the I front in the last furlong. Klamath was now 4 favorite at $75 to $50 on Florida and $12 on the field. T'hornless took the lead and held it to the backstretch, when Florida came up but would not hold her position. Klamath was coming along a bad third under a heavy pnll, which at one tmune threw him Into the air. Thornies andl I Florida were making something of a race coming into the homestretch, but the elements were against the maoe and she had to drop back while lidlmath came to the front. Thornless and Klamath were now coming along with the former in the lead when in the last 150 valds he began running I and lost his advantage. Rlamath went to the wire an easy winner of the heat and the Trotting Frue fur all: piurue, 01.0 U.

Now sr ae the g hinllirig rote of the day. It was repetition of the hettmiu excitement when Montana, Gold Slr and Ilello went a mile and a half. ' he only difference this time wos that they went a quarter less, and that Diavolo was in it instead of hello. 'the betting started off briskly at $90 on Montana to $50 on Gold Bar and $20 on liavolo. Gradually the pools rose in size until at the elose Montana was backed for $500 to Gold Bar's $2!10 and Diavolo $100. It waes known that ~omit would be up on Montana and Reed on his own horse. When Meyer, who rode Gold Bar on Thurs day, got on the chestnut again to go to the start, there was a vieorous kick from those who had backed the Onondaga stallion. "'Take him down," came from a hundred throats at once. The judges, however, let him stay no. A drizzling cold rain was falling at this time and the c owd all got under shelter. Af ter several bad breaks the horses got off with Montana in the lead and Dinvolo right at his heels. Gold Bar trailed several lengths behind. They went by the grand stand in the same order, but in the back stretch Diavolo pushed up alongside the favorite, but once more fell back. T'he racee was made in the last quarter. C(omieg into the home stretch Meyer let Gold Barl ont and the horse went forward as if he knew it was his race. Diavolo was passed, then Montana. and though the latter made a blg effort in the finish it was Gold Bar's nce.

The Jew was a heavy n favorite against the Bfld, with Zore, Gray Rooster, Little Joe and Fred Parker in it. Gray Rooster and Zore set the pace, with the favorite ,in third place. ito the stretch they were pretty well bunched until Zorn and Little Joe drew away from the pack, olosely pressed by the favorite.

S. B. Whitehead, who arnaeed the pool business for the Montana State Fair asso ciation, as well as at Deer Lodge, Anaconda and Butte, ,says he is very well satisfied with the business done in Helena, and expects $o be back hernext season. Mr. Whitehead's books show that $99,703 passed through the asctions and $76,7915 through the Paris mu tuals, a total of $176,498. Butte and Ana conda alone exceeded this business, but at both places the meetings were made longer. Still, at no place was the betting as spirited on any one race as it was here. Two days this week auction pools ran up in the neigh borhood of $900 each. In no other place did any one pool exceed $350. On one race alone here there was $7,000 to be divided among the holders of the muntuals on the winning horse. From here Mr. Whitehead goes to Great Falls, and thence to Sacra mento. George Booker, who sold action pools here, goes to Great Falls with Mr. Whitehead, and will probably go to the coast also. The suocess which attends Mr. White head's firm is due to two things. ,One is it is strictly business; the other is no employse is allowed to do any betting. One man who bought mutuals here was promptly dis charged. Mr. Whitehead carries a force of eight men with him. Those who.have deal ings with the mutual or auctiop boxes can always go to any one of the employee, if he has a complaint, and he will be sure of a hearing and an investigation. That is what makes the concern so popular, and it is hoped the firm of 8. B. Whitehead & Co., will be seen on the Montana circuit again next year. BEN LOMOND, JR., DEAD. The Celebrated Stallion Succumbs to Pale Alto's Complaint A letter from Val Laubenheimer, at Kib bev, received yesterday by Harry W.
