ELLIS ISLAND TROUBLES.
ISLAND PI RPOSELV MADE A DUMPING
GROUND. SAYS Ml!. TAYLOR.
JUT TrxrcßAPif TO the TiiißrsE-]
Washington. July 22.— James K. Taylor, the Su
prrvisJng Architect of the Treason Department,
¦who controls all contracts pf-rtainlng to the Im
provement of Kills Island, endeavored to explain
to-day the conditions which have occasioned criti
cism. "We have purposely made It a dumping
ground." he said, "and we were fortunate in
securing the earth from the Bowling Gre«n site
of the new Cuetom House, so that at th*- proper
lira*- the ground surrounding the main building on
th* triune may be ralcrd about three feet This
wlJi probably be don* in October or November,
when the surface will l«e properly graded and we
will ci! try out our plans for a suitable park and
for beautifying the entire Kite All this will be
•sac when the proper time ooneS- The construc
tion of all the auxiliary buildings Is not completed
yet. ro there is no advantage to be gained by
levelling and sodding the ground now. It would
all have to be done over ayrain. We could not
fence up the debris just because it Is unsightly.
All of that material will be gathered up and some
of it will be sold wnen the workmen are ready
to e»>."
Mr. Taylor, when asked if he expected to dispose
of the ashes and rubbish, other than old building
material, that have accumulated there, replied:
"Oh, that will all b* covered up next fall wh«»n
we begin to raise and grade the grounds. The
place is now free and open, where the sun shines
all day. so it if. perfectly healthy." When asked
if the contractors were not largely to blame for
T*«. condition of th* grounds Mr Taylor remarked,
with warmth "Well, if the ptaale don't like it
they ran do the n*xt tec' thine; that is. kick '
No record could he found f>-day of any com
plaint about th* condition of th? immigration sta
tion grounds received at the department from
Commissioner Fitchie's offl'-e 'it New- York. Con
gress In MR authorized an expenditure of ILSRJM
lor rebuilding the immigrant station at the port
of New-York In lone. 1?37. four sets of plans
•were submitted to Secretary Oag* by architects
in competition, and the same month Bering &
Tllton, of New-York City, were awarded the con
tract, -which they sublet to the R. H. Hood Com
pany of 'New-York It was a year afterward be
fore- the cornerstone of th* Ellis Island station was
laid. The construction of the building then draeged
en. with the supervision of a special Treasury
lnspector. who was finally dropped from the ser
vice, owing to the exasperating lack of progress,
and Edward Roberts, one of the regular inspector?
of the eupervifir.g architect's office, was detailed
to the Job In the spring of ' VVI -with instructions to
hustle the work
Not long after this change rpports came to
Washington that unsuitable material had b^en used
in til© Iron construction, and much had to be torn
down and replaced Other material was reported
as falling to comply with the specifications. Con
ditions there became so bad that both Supervising
Architect Taylor and Assistant t^cre!,ir> Taylor.
after an Investigation, were forced to recommend
a thorough overhauling of the poor workmanship.
The first allotment of the appropriation Intended
for the erection of the main building was 'xhaup'
ed and work suspended lor a short time, until ISOO.
©OO more was allowed for the auxiliary bui'dingE.
including the hospital, boiler bouse and restaurant.
These buildings wet« expected to be ready for oc
cupancy about the lime the main building was com
pleted. * Notwithstanding the delays which pre
vented the authorities from taking possession of
the station until March last, eight months after
the contract time, the auxiliary buildings were not
ready. For the delay in completing the main build
ing Assistant Secretary Taylor inflicted a severe
penalty A- iat« as March 4 last an additional
appropriation of $*'<O.<JOO was obtained from Con
cress, to be expended for the erection of a ferry
houpe. surgeons' bouse. covered walk ways, in
cluding one to the glazed porch of the main build
ing: a laundry, and: a new power plant, rebuilding
cribs, together with th- parking, grading, etc.
Out of the total appropriations. aggregating $1.50".
(b<r< to date, there Is about $&o.<«v> unexpended, a
part of which may be used for incidental expenses
connected with improving the grounds and ap
proaches. Mr. Taylor admits that the contractor?:
have b*>en slow in the EIIK Island work, but h- 5
esys the government was at little expense during
th* time the builalng was coins on. and In his
opinion by October or November everything will
be entirely satisfactory.
YORK CALLS THEM DAXGEROI'S.
OnDEBS T%VO ATTRACTION'S AT CONEY ISL
AND SHUT DOWN.
No more will the pleasure seekers at Coney
It-land revel in the danger and delights of "The
Loop the Loop" and the "Barrel of Love." Those
amusements were closed last night by Captain
Drisroll upon orders from Deputy Pnlic<» Com
missioner York, who considers th»m "dangerous
to human life."
"Th»» Loop the Loop" Is in Purf-ave.. opposite
the old Culver depot, and has been the sensa
tion of the year at Coney Island. Passengers in
a email car arc whirled along a railway with
great velocity, and at one point in the journey
are turned completely upside down. The pas
senger* are kept in only by centrifugal force.
Mr. Van Duzen, the manager, was indignant
when he was ordered to close. He was told
that if he did not obey he would be arrested, and
he finally acquiesced. He says that the plant
cost him $50tiOOO. and that he has a lease on
th« ground for ten years at $15,00(1 a year;- that
it costs him fWO a day to operate the amuse
ment, and three hundred thousand people have
been carried around "The Loop" this season.
George Tllyou runs "the Barrel of Love." In
Furf-ave.. toward Sea <Jate. This is a large
barrel, which rolls over and over on Its side on
a large track. Persons are seated inside the
barrel and strapped In place, and are turned
over as the barrel revolves. Mr. Tilyou went to
Captain Driscoll and asked by what authority
and for what reason the amusement was shut
down.
"I am elmply obeying orders." responded the
captain. "You will have to ask Commissioner
York."
"I ordered th';!*» places closed because I con
sidered them dangerous to human life." said
Commissioner York to a Tribune reporter last
night.

her will, -which was executed on April 25. 1539,
Father Power and Condon were appointed ex

The will was contested by about thirty of Mrs.
Johnson's relatives who had been either Ignored
altogether or only received «mall legacies, but wan
admitted to probate. The will was subsequently
declared invalid after a trial before Justice Stover

THE RACETRACK.
POOR STAUTIXG AT BRIGHTON—BRIGA
DIER DEFEATS WAX TAPER.
Although four favorites won at Brighton Beach
yesterday, the talent had two hard falls that they
will remember for some time. The first was in the
two-mile steeplechase, that was second on the card,
when charasrace. the odda-on favorite. whose
entry was refuted for in and out running last year
and who baa only recently been reinstated, ran out
at the second Jump, and even when brought up to
It again continued to refuse. Ann this was only a
few days after the gelding ran a rattling pood race
over the hurdles
Tli second rap for the public was administered
by the starter in the third rare. It was known
that James R. Keene's Kingston filly Prophetic
had worked In fine style, fast enough to heat any
thing in the selling race in which she was to Start,
an.l she was accordingly heavily played at 2 to 1,
and carried the bulk of the money when she wont
to the post. The fle!«i was a troublesome one, and
there were three falFe breaks without a start. In
each of these the favorite was well away, but when
the flag dropped eh* was actually standing still.
It may have been Michaels'e fault rliat the filly
wa= not sway with the Held, but Mr. Fitzgerald
should not have punished her backers for the fault
of The (OCkey He did. however, -1? the event
prove* Had she got away with the rest she could
not have lost. As it was, She was three length?
behind the nearest horse at the first furlong pole.
Then she began to run in good earnest, and when
the last turn had been rounded she was nose and
nose with Ascension and Montana Pioneer. Zlrl,
who had led all the way, was then more than two
lc-ncth? in front; but th« daughter of Kingston had
the speed of the wind and under a perfect hand
ride by little Michaels she swept onward so grandly
that Zirl was barely a nose to the good when the
two shot under the wire With anything like a
fair break the Keene filly's number must surely
have been hung up first.
When Mr FitagerUd came back to th* stand he
rerorted to the stewards, in bis lefen t that when
tie dropped his flag Michaels had pulled up. and
h» recommended that the boy bo set down for th"
rest of the week. Thl= was accordingly ordered,
but it looked to most Impartial observers as If
Prophetic was standing still when the barrier flew
up Whomever tli« fault; the public was the loser.
Ten of th* fourteen entries for tho last race of the
day. for three-year-olds that hail started at the
Brighton meeting and not won. were frightened out
by the entry of Brigadier. Wax Taper, May W.
and Hand** irk remained, however, and a good raw
resultc-d. Brigadier was the public choice from the
start, for his sprinting abilities were well known
and. like most Rayon d"Or!>. he like*; a small field.
Mr. Belmop.t's colt" was backed down from •• to 5 to
even money, while Wax Tapers price rose from
6 to 5 to 2 to 1, and long prices wore obtainable
against May W. and Handwork. May W. made the
running from the start, with Handwork in sec
ond place. Brisadier in third and Wax Taper last.
The backers 01 the last horse did not despair, how
ever, for the Candl-mas colt l« a «!ow beginner.
Both Brigadier and Wax Taper moved up ana
passed Handwork at four rurlongs. and. rounding
the turn. Brigadier flashed Into the lea<l. increasing
It gradually until at the finish ho was two lengths
ahead of May W.. who had to be driven out to beat
Wax Taper a hend for the place. The time. 1:12 4-5.
was fast, but Wax Taper is a better six furlong
horee than he showed yesterday, an<l he seems to
need -i rest.
The starter bungled thins? again for the first
race, pending Lady Radnor off over a length to the
good, and she won by that margin and a bit over.

TO IMPROVE THE AQUEDUCT TRACK.
Thomas Rlley. president of the Queens County
Racing Association, announced yesterday that plans
NEW-YORK DAILY TKIiSUNE. TUESDAY. JULY 23. 1901.
have been made for extensive improvements at the
Aqueduct racetrack which will bring about a
transformation in the appearance of the Queens
County track, and which will result in Increased
accommodations and conveniences for racegoers.
The grandstand at present on the track will be
taken down and an entirely new structure, designed
on more commodious lines, will dc erected. More
over, the clubhouse will receive attention, and will
be remodelled and partly rebuilt, while the layers
of odds ¦will have entirely new surroundings in the
rlnr.
A large amount of money. Mr. Rlley says, will
be expended on the forthcoming improvements. The
contracts for the work have already been awarded
and work will be-in at once. The new stand an.l
the other Improvements will be completed In ample
time for the fall mating in November. This does
not look as if Mr Riley and his associates were in
much fear of Aqueducts bring put on the shelf by
the State Racing Commission or the Jockey Club
in favor of a now track, to be managed according
to an ill founded report, by Senator T. D. Sullivan
and his friends.
WALTHOUR WINS EASILY.
FRENCH CHAMPION TN NO CONDITION
FOB STRUGGLE-HOWLS OF DE
RISION OVER A DECISION
BY REFEREE.
As usual when bicycle races are hrlrl at Madison
Square Garden, the weather last nicht was of the
torrid, linen wilting sort. The two thousand spec
tators perspired and suffered, but cheered the rider?
on as the athlet.-s whirled around the dlshlike oval
in quest of medal* and glory. The fifteen mile mo
tor paced race between Walthour and Taylore. the
Frenchman, turned out/ to he a procession There
was a vexatious delay of about an hour before th*
race was started, due to repairs which had to be
mad* to bicycles and motors. Walthour took the
lead in the first mile and lapped hi? opponent at
will, eventually winning by lS'-i laps, or within 11?1 1 ?
laps of two miles Taylore was out of condition,
and was unable to do himself justice. Walthour
followed his motor admirably] and he was not dis
tressed st any time in the race. The Frenchman
labored painfully, especially at the sharply banked
I urn
The mo«t exciting of th*- sprint races was th«
one mile open P. G. Win Cott, of the Greenwich
Wheelmen, took th<» lead early In the contest md
set a lively pace to th" finish, winning apparently
with something to spare \ y over a length G. C.
BrhHeher. of the Harlem Wheelmen, tried to phss
Van Cott In the eighth lap, but failed. After the
finish the referee. John Valentine, disqualified Van
Crtt for riding wide at the corners and carrying
those behind him with him. The spectators howled
in derision at the decision, and cheered Yon Cott
frantically when the rider j^ppeaied "ii the track
to protest apalns»t th« ruling. Schrleber got the
race, with I.osee second and Rawlins third. As
Valentine is a member of the Harlem Wheelmen,
the partisan sentiment ran high. The two mMc
handicap was won t>y W. A. McClelland, who
Sprinted a quarter of a mile from th finish and
won easily by three lenpths.

nailed at 2:25, when R. P. Carroll's big: 00-foot
yawl, the Xavahoe. crossed at 2:20:07, Henry
Redmond's imported Ailsa. of the same yawl
class, following three second^ later. Then came,
at 2:ii(!:17, the 70-foot cutter Athene, owned
by W. O. Gay, of Boston. Although built by
iferreshoff before he turned out last year's fleet
of Beventl*», the Athene had never before rated
aprainst the vessels of the one design m 70-footer
class, and th.-re -was a pood deal of interest at
taching to the meet of the Athene with. Cor
nelius Vanderhiit's Rainl*o\v. The Rainbow
came next at 2^26 :3d. Then came Mr. Dodge's
newly imported Eelin. and the -footer Car
mita, formerly owned by W. K. Vanderbilt. jr.,
and Anson Pnelpe Stokes's Mermaid and the old
cutter Bedouin.
After the handicap gun came the Maxwell
Humma and C. L. F. Robinson's Hester, and the
Altair. owned by Cord Meyer. This gun being
also the starting signal for the schooners, the
Quisseita led the Claris, steered by H. L. Lippett.
her ofTk-ial time being 2:32:28, after which came
the schooner Katrina and the handicapped cut
ter Isolde, followed by the schooner Muriel at
2--SS.-32.
The schooner Elmina gybed at the line, and
crossed at 2:34:47, her skipper, Dennis, wishing
to take most of the timed start on the watch.
The handicap tor schooners then sounded, and
the Anmrit'i passed afterward, as did also the
old and historic schooner Columbia, which was
better known in Cup defence circles of 1871,
just thirty years ago, than she is now. Among
the 'also ran?" was the schooner America, the
vessel that made all the trouble; the schooner
Marguerite, now painted black, and also a
schooner supposed to be the Wayward. Here
also passed the Herreshoff effort, a long way
behind hrr --'lap?
While waiting for their start the Constitution
and Columbia mad»? a wide detour away to the
northwest and then came sweeping down to
the line at a great speed, the Columbia ahead.
She hove up to the windward end of the line
and then lowered her spinnaker boom to star
board and broke out. as she crossed at 2:4&:!*8.
The Constitution purposeiy delayed to get more
time on the official watch and ran up Inside the
line to the end of it before she was timed at
2:46:35. It was noticed that Captain Rhodes
was lowering his spinnaker boom, and he gybed
on the line and Bel his 1>1? wing to port. This
suggested at once that the skipper who had
started with his malnboom on the wrong Bide
would have to pay costs for his error. But it
was not. easy at first to ascertain which was In
the right. Th<=> wind was about southwest by
west, bo that the compass course for the first
mark seemed about dead before it. One cutter
had already winged herself with a spinnaker to
port and others were now doing th* 1 same. All
those who did so. including the schooners Quis
setta. Elmina and Amorita. were hauling out a
good deal to the northward of their course, and
there was Boon a wide lan-- of water between
the fleets which agreed with Barr and those
which agreed with Rhodes Borne minutes after
the start it was carefully counted that nine
racers had their big triangles to port, and
forty-one rAcers and cruisers had their main
boom to port. Parr's opinion was therefore In
dorsed by more than four tlmen as many skip
pers as that of Rhodes, But that did not do
Barr any good. As the boats drew away from
the. land on the south side the wind direction
became more pronounced and It was plain to
every one that the Constitution had the best of
it Her sails sat at a rap full all the time.
Those on the Columbia, while not falling In,
were getting the wind obliquely, and a little on
th.' malnboom side of the wing and wing, an.l
the difference was sending the Constitution far
into the lead ,
At '¦'• ¦'•'•< th« Columbia gybed her boom to star
board and set her spinnaker to port, while the
northerly fleet, which was now heading back
toward its course for the mark, were gybing
th' mainbooms to port and setting the trl
angles to starboard. "
The Vigilant was here seen with her headsalli
down as she gybed her malnboom to starboard,
and at ":'J* the Constitution passed the yawls
Allsa and Vigilant At 3:47 the order was thus:
The Vavahoe. the Constitution, the Vigilant,
the Rainbow, the Allsa. the Columbia and the
Athene The Column • was here apparently
gaining, but th»> Constitution was now- near the
mark Bhe took In her balloon Jib at 3:48 20,
and thr I--1 '-* 1 minute.* later passed the Navahoe,
then dropping tho spinnaker to take the mark.
Hh* was officially timed at 4:00:52, the Co
lumbia rning ar »•'»'_'_' There was her«» a
dtn>ren<*«* between them of '.i minutes "•" sec
onds. Rome ftne yachting vlhwi were had an
nil the 1.-a.lers turned. As unomclally timed,
th( Navahoe rounded well at 4:03:30, the Rain
bow .it lot »> the Vigilant at 1:04:30. The
Columbia cut into the small space between the
Vigilant ani the mark The boats were un
offlclallly timed together at 4:04:30, the two
iitting exactly as they lapped in th<» turn.
Then cam- tho Allsa. about 4:03:00. The Co
lumbifl went over with the Vigilant to the
Starboard ta<-k for th*» first time of the five mile
boat to the second mark, and th" way the 1896
defender Columbia looked up a point higher
am! Failed <>ut from th< Vigilant** lee was a
caution to snakes. The Athene was here timed
at 4:07:30, 3 minutes 30 seconds behind the
Rainbow.
i!, on;: the schooners v ie Muriel was timed
fTrst, and received hor dff«*at at nbout tho same
n-.'<niont. Tho QulsettH and the Muriel v.-ere both
considerably ah»ad of the Elralna, l>ut as Den
nis swung to the mark he was one of the very
few who took the mark properly, He made his
curve at the right plare and swung in between
the mark (taking it by the wind) and both the
other two, which were lapped over each
other in Just the right position for a double
slaughter, Practically, the race of the Quissetta
and the Muriel ended at this point. The El
mina went out wlndjammlng as soon as she
rounded, with her sheets flat aft.
As soon as Bhe rounded It was* noticed that
the Hester ran up a protest flag, though th.
cause of It was not understood. Th.' Navaboe
was here sailing a great race. She was up near
the Columbia and well ahead of the Ailsa and
the Vigilant. She crossed the Rainbow's bows,
well ahead, at 4:28.
They were here officially timed: The Constitu
tion. 17:30; the Columbia. 51:05, a difference
of .°> minutes and .">.'• seconds
Thence to the finish line the boats travelled on
a broad reach, the elapsed time of the Constitu
tion being -<> minutes and 20 seconds, while
that of the Columbia was 26 minutes and "_'•'. sec
onds showing a gain for the Constitution of
six seconds in the last leg. The finish times of
these two were: The Constitution. 5:12:50 the
Columbia, 5:17:31.
Mr. Duncan was asked for a temeasurement
of the Constitution, as the new bowsprit is
longer than the former one and Increases the
base line.

Glasgow. July —The departure of Shamrock II
for the United States, which was fixed for July 25,

FISH COMMISSIOX'H fiOOH WORK.
DAVID JORDAN REPOP.TB ON THE EXPEDI
TION TO HAWAII.
San Francisco. July 22 (Special). -President David
Starr Jordan of Stanford University arrived to-day
on the steamer Sierra from Hawaii. He has spent
two months in systematic study of the food fishes
of the Islands and the best means of Increasing the
supply to keep pace with the greatly increased de
mand. The work was done fur the National Fish
Commission. In regard to this work Dr. Jordan
said:
The Fish Commission while here has captured 235
kinds if fish. Color notes have been mud* of
twenty of these so tax. Of the fish we have caught
seventy are new to science. Thirty of theae
were found In the waters of Honolulu and twenty
of vii.. Something like fifteen war* common to
both places. The making of laws for the protection
,if fish In Hawaii will devolve to a large extent
upon the report of our commission Unfortunately
we have been deprived of the assistance of in
Everman. who hfs been an Invalid during hi>« en
tire visit. However, the rest of us feel confident
that under his guidance we will frame lnws that
will benefit the fishing industry. As to trans
planting foreign fish to these waters, I doubt if It
can be .lone successfully. The fresh water streams
are so small and their sides are so precipitous It
would not be worth while.
In regard to the Islands, Dr. Jordan ridiculed the
Idea of annexing them to California as a Congres
sional district. He thought it would be a long time
before Congress would allow Hawaii to have State
hood. He said the most interesting problem in the
islands was whether the social conditions could be,
so adjusted as to make all men free and equal If
they can It will be the first time this has been done
within the tropics.

KP.VN' MAWR SNATCHES THE LADIES' CHAL
LENGE CUP FROM WE&TCHE3TEH
IN A FAST GAME.
Bryn Mawr. Philadelphia's Istest polo organlza
tlon, won th<- Ladles' Challenge Cup yesterday In
the closing pme of the Rockaway Hunting Club's
polo tournament at Cedarhurst, Long Island Bryn
Mawr met the powerful Westchester Club quartet.
among whom were UM two Waterbury boys, and
by a glorious exhibition of team work, strong and
accurate goal hitting, and rare judgment, scored
.-i worthy victory by II goal! to :¦» The same was
played without handicaps, but by the Polo Associa
tion ratings the t<vims were practically even. It
was the strongest «et of competitors that has ap
peared In the Rockaway game*, and almost a rec
ord breaking; crowd was out to see the match. A
good delegation went down from the Westchester
Country Club, and the latter gave hopes of holding
the cup for another year by making three goals
In the first period to one for the Quakers.
The second period was the most sensational of
the game, it wan characterised by remarkably »st
riding, brllllunt team work by the Thiladelphlans
and speedy goal hitting. Ten goals were made in
the fifteen mlnuies of play, the largest number
made this season In a single period Eight of the
goals were struck in seven and one-half minutes, a
clear Indication of the fast play, four of them being
in thirty seconds each. Three were struck by Snow
don and one by "Monte" Waterbury. Snowden's
first half minute goal tied the score, making three
goals for each aid*. Kandrtck got the ball at the
throw In, and Snowoen carried It toward the lines.
One of the Waterbun boys backed It. but Snowden
was right on the spot, and made a neat goal from
the quarter field. 'Monte" Waterbury made the
next point, running the ball down from the throw
In. Then Snowden showed brilliant polo, making
three goals in succession. The llrai one be made
unassisted, running It down from the throw In. In
the next on. he was assisted by Kendrlck and by
the failure "i the Water burys to back directly In
front of Bryn Mawr's posts, Blair made an excel
lent goal for Westchester soon after, getting a long
hit, and Immediately dashed after the ball to carry.
it home Wheeler gave him .1 grand race, but he
mi.-*;-- .i the effort to back Close to the line and the
ball had sufficient Impetus tr» carry it through for a
go.il
The closing seven and one-half minutes of this
remarkable period was not; so prolific In scoring,
although the play continued of a decidedly snappy
order "Larry" Waterbutr* brightened the hopt-s
of his club by a good goal. but Kendrick closed the
period with one more for Bryn Mawr. From being
two goals behind, the latter club h.i.i scored seven
of the ten goals and was two In the lead, having
8 to 6 for Westchester.
Blair played the best and steadiest game he has
shown this year. He rode admirably, and showed
genuine power In moat of his strokes. Potter got
a fall in the closing period, but was uninjured.
Perfect team work gave Bryn Mawr its victory.
A man was Invariably ready to take the ball, either
from passing or backing. Snowden'i accuracy In
goal hitting was a feature of the game, and Ken
drtvk was always a conspicuous figure. a nice
print wa« brought up at the close of the third
period. After scoring twice. Bryn Mawr hit a
third goal Just as tin:" was up but before the bell
rang. The line-up and score follow:

SISTER ALICE WINS A CLOSE CONTEST IN
THE 2:10 TROT-SHADOW CHIME 3
BEATEN IN THE 2:3) PACE.
Cleveland. July 22.-Ideal racing weather, a larsr 9
crowd and a track as smooth as tne top of a
billiard table characterized the openinß day of the
Grand Circuit meeting at the Cleveland Drives
Park this afternoon. *
Heretofore It has keen the policy of the Cleve
land Driving Park management to charga no ad
misjlon on the openin? day of the Grand Circuit
races, but te-day th" full admission prices we r«
charged. This, however, did not keep away th<»
crowds, and about fiv* thousand people were ea
hand at l .> o'clock to see Starter Barnard glvs
the word "ko" to the 2:10 trotters.
The finishes of the two heals of the first r , M
were close and sulllm. but Sister Alice succeeded
in sticking her nose under the wire a winner in
bMh heats. In fact, so close was the first heat
that the Judges deliberated fully m minutes be
fore giving their decision.
Nonami* was a hot favorite In the second race,
but Martha Marshall «MS too fleet v for the Helm
entry, and won in straight heats.
Metalla.a. in the third race, trotted away from
the bunch In each heat, keeping I ii' sip ot day
light between himself and his competitor*.
Ed Geers's Shadow Chimes was slated to *v!n the
fourth event, bets of ion to 50 being freely made on
him. Audubon Boy mad* the pace in both heats
and <~ame out victorious in the closest and most -x
citinK race of the day. Shadow Chimes led in the
stretch In the first heat, but broke Just before the
wlr«- was reached, thus killing all chances of cross
ing a winner. Thousands of dollars were placed
on the Geers entry, and the bookies reaped a rich
harvest. The summaries:
