RACING IN MUD AND RAIN.
THREE FAVORITES WIN.
Wight Royal Wins the Speculation
in a Driving Finish.
Huddled In damp and dismal groups, under
anything that offered shelter from the rain, a
sorry remnant of the army of regulars watched
the racing at Gravesend yeste.day and wished
it was elsewhere.
Officially the attendance w^s one of the small
•■t—not only of the meeting, but of the year—
and this In spite of the fact that seven con
tacts instead of six were down for decision. The
conditions over head and under foot could not
well have been worse, and that there was any
Attendance at all was in itself proof of the hold
racing has upon the public Rain fell incessant
ly throughout the afternoon, and the track, al
ready fetlock deep in mud from the storm of the
«*ar!y morning, was almost navigable for small
craf t by the time the field for the first race waa
called from the paddock.
In spite of the rain and the mud, however, the
races were run as near to form as they have
been of late tinder more normal conditions, and
at the end of the afternoon the form players
found that they had three winning favorites to
The seventh race was made necessary by the
overflow of entries received for the sixth race —
a, five and a half furlong sprint for maiden two
year-old nliies and geldings. Thirty-six young
sters that had never won a race were entered
Xor this contest, and even after it had been split
in two- And run In sections it was necessary to
exclude tne names of four would-be contestants.
The more or less pretentious field of high class
sailinr platers which had been named over night
to start in the Speculation Stakes at one and
one-sixteenth miles was more than cut In half
\rj withdrawals, and only six out of fifteen re
sponded to the bugle call. Of these, Maurice L..
Hayman's black colt. Right Royal with his v.ell
known fondness for the mud. wrs unhesitatingly
chosen to carry the public funds, and was
backed from 8 to 5 to even money. Little
Perrine had the leg up on the favorite, and al
though he managed to land him a winner, it
■was not before he had given tha colt's followers
'temporary heart disease.
In overhauling Ocean Tide, which made all
the early pace, both Perrine and Right Royal
suhausted about all their joint resources, and

In the stretch the pair were put to it desperately
to stall him off and beat him to the Judges'
stand by a head. Mr. dimmer's nlly, although
■topping fast, managed to oeat the others.
Davy Johnson's sprinte-. Roseben. gave an
trther demonstration of his wonderful weight
carrying ability in an all age handicap over the
short six furlong course. He took up an im
post of 137 pounds and galloped such shifty
■printers as Schularnite. Nannie Hodge and half
m. dozen others off their feet- He had much the
•worst of the start, but when once into his stride
oaught the leaders before the 6tretch was
reached and won galloping.
After J. W. Colt's Maiden had broken down
and Bonfire had raced himself into the ground,
Caloorahatchie, the brown gelding owned by
G*orge B. Hill, won a selling steeplechase over
the short course. Jar. Stone rode a well Judged
race on the winner and brought him from far
back in the ruck up to first place in the last
quarter of a mile. Black Death was the run

the public as a chronic "dope" horse— started in a
Belling race last Friday, and although he ran la»t

One of "Father Bill" Daly'g stable boys went
before the stewards at Gravesend yesterday and
told them he had been terriDly beaten by Daly's
foreman. A black eye, a nose bruised and swollen
and a severely cut lip bore eloquent evidence that
some one had beaten the youngster. The stewards
will investigate the case to-day. Such stories from
the boys in Daly's stable are not uncommon. It
was only last March, in fact, that the stewards of
the Bennings meeting: fined Daly 5300 for beating a
little chap named Henning so brutally that It waa
necessary to call In a doctor.

SQUADRON A POLO TEAM WARMING UP BEFORE YESTERDAY'S GAME FOR THE JUNIOR CHMPIONSHIP.
A RECORD FOR OLDFIELD.
BERNIN'S NARROW ESCAPE
Crashes Into Fence, but Manages
to Keep His Seat.
IBy Te!esrai>h to The Tribune.]
Syracuse, Sept 18.— Barney Oldfield, driving
his peerless Green Dragon, broke the world's
automobile track record for five miles at the
national circuit races at the State Fair track
this afternoon. His time for the five mile* was
4:88 2-5, breaking his previous record of 4:89,
made at Buffalo. The time of the miles were:
First, 0:55 3-5; second, 0:56; third, 0:55 4-5;
fourth. 0:55 4-5; fifth, 0:55 8-5.
Don Wurgis also broke the track record for an
exhibition mile with a middleweight car. He
drove a 30-horsepower Reo car around the track
in 554-5 seconds, clipping one-fifth of a second
from the old mark.
G. H. Curtis, of Hammondsport, broke the
world's record, going a mile with a motor cycle
in l:03V&. which is three-fourths of a aecond
better than any previous record. At the end of
the second mile the time was 2:04 4-5, the best
previous time being 2:10.
M. G. Bernin, of New-York, who had a narrow
escape from death while at practice Sunday,
when he ran Into a fence, repeated the trick to
day and was badly cut over his left eye. "While
dashing around the track at the rate of a mile
a minute, he ran intp the fence and ripped up
about forty feet of the rails. He was hit by
some of the flying timbers, but was able to
keep his seat. The machine was disabled. The

SPEED LAWS BROKEN.
Offenders Likely To Be "Arrested
on Vanderbilt Cup Course.
Mineola, Long Island. Sept. I&— The Nassau
Board of Supervisors has received so many com
plaints of reckless and lawless speeding of auto
mobiles on the country roads, especially on the
course over which the Vanderbilt Cup races are
to be run, that at its meeting to-day a resolu
tion was adopted referring all the complaints
to District Attorney Frank A. Coles for investi
gation, and promising to give him all the aid in
the power of the board to assist him In enforc
ing the law.
It was also resolved to direct Halstead Scud
der, counsel for the board, to send a copy of the
resolutions to every "auto" owner, calling at
tention to the policy of the board and asking
assistance In carrying out the speed law.
At the suggestion of the District Attorney it
was also decided to have signs placed at the
proper places cautioning drivers to slow down to
ten miles an hour in thickly settled districts.
Robert L. Morrell, chairman of the racing
board of the Automobile Association of Amer
ica, said that he himself had stopped on the
country roads five racing machines that were
exceeding the speed limit, and in his opinion the
authorities should arrest all such violators of
the law. He said he proposed to send three men
to the Jericho turnpike this afternoon to watch
for any violations of the law by "auto" owners.
Thc.«e men were ordered to report to him, and
if any were caught offending he -would report
their names to the association, and their sus
pension would probably follow. District Attor
ney Coles said that he, too, would post deputy
sheriffs along the roads for a similar purpose,
and that he would prosecute violators of the law.
POWER BOATS TO RACE.
Six of the Speedy Craft Entered
for Vanderbilt Cup.
Six high speed power boats have entered the
open race for power boats driven by internal
combustion engines, to be. held on Long Island
Sound off Oyster Bay, to-morrow. The prize is
a cup, to I<<- presented by Commodore William
K. Vanderbilt, jr.
The boats are E. R. Thomas's Dixie, Alex
ander Stein's Veritas, Siegel and Gilllgs's X. P.
D. N. C, C. R. Mabley's Simplex, W. K. Vander
bilt, jr's., Mercedes VI. and the Uncle Sam.
This Is sure to be an exciting race from start
to finish, for all the boats entered have records
for speed at various distances, and as the course
is 102 miles — or six times around a course of
sixteen and a half miles, it should be a contest
well worth seeing.
The Dixie is the boat that won the Interna
tional Cup at the motor boat carnival on tho
Hudson last week. The X. P. D. N. C. won the
National Cup, the Simplex won the long distance
race to Poughkeepsie and back, and the Veritas
made the fastest time over the thirty mile
course on Friday at the Hudson River carnival.
The start will be made at 12:10 o'clock, and
the race will be managed by the regatta com
mittee of the Seawanhaka Corinthian Yacht
The course is from the starting line, off Lloyd's
Neck, to and around the black spar buoy
F 17^. off Malinnecock Point, and mark boats
Nos. 2 and 3, making a turn with a radius of
about a quarter of a mile; thence easterly to
and around mark boats No. 4 and No. 1 and
buoy H 1, making a turn with the same radius
as before. The < >urse is to be covered six
times, and the last time the finish line is to be
crossed Instead of rounding mark boat No. 4.
Boats must keep outside of buoys No. 15 and
O 16%- The total distance is 89 knots, or 102
statute mlleß. Each yacht must carry her official
number on her flagstaff or her time will not be
CRAGIN BEATS M'AVOY.

Rumors of Injunction Proceedings
at Open Championship.
It is possible that peace between the golf ball
manufacturers and the United States Golf Asso
ciation has not been fully restored, despite the
fact that certain manufacturers have cancelled
all their money prize offers, at the request of tho
executive committee, who have charge of the open
national championship at Myopia this week.
There was a rumor yesterday in golfing circles
that a sporting goods firm which had not been
consulted would make a test case by getting out
an Injunction restraining- the committee from In
terfering with the use of its ball in the open cham
pionship. The committee last night kntw of no
tuch action, nor do they umicipate any trouble.
A prominent golfer said yesterday that tnero
was nothing' to prevont the manufacturers from
coming together and holding a tournament of
th(lr own for the professionals and giving all the.
prize money they desired, but it was distinctly out
of place for them to offer more money fur the use
of their goods than the association were giving in
prizes for the national open championship.
Six additional entries have been received for the
open chnmptonship, making a total of 84. The men
are David Hunter. Essex County Country Club: Fred
Hand and Jack I.uiy wall, Pittsburg Golf Club;Georjje

character, open to professionals and amateurs, th-
entries for whl.'h will elope on FrUJay with the golf

TARTAN' WINS THE CUP.
The Nora Beaten Yesterday and
Loses Raceabout Competition.
In no class of racing yachts has there been keener
competition this summer than In the Larchmont
raceabout class. They began a series of contests
on June 17 In the spring regatta for a $250 cup
offered by the club to the winner of the greatest
number of points In the class in all the ten races.
A second prize was offered for the winner of the
next greatest number of points.
When the tenth race was tlnlshed. on Septem
ter 4, it was found that A. 11. Pirie's Tartan and
the Nora, owned by Adrian Isclln, 2d, had tied.
The race was sailed off yesterday, and it resulted
in a victory for the Tartan by 1 minute 54 seconds.
Only one point, however, separates the boats, for
the Tartan's record for the eleven races was 71
points i nd the Nora's 70.
The yachts sailed a ten and a half mile course,
twice around triangle No. 9. In the south wind
this afT"t\l<->l a reach, a beat and a tun on the
first round. Tbs start was made at 1:45 o'clock,
with the Tartan leading th«> Nora over the line
some 15 seconds. The Iselln boat luffed to try and
regain her lost ground, but the Tartan boat her
at that Ramc ar.cl tlr«-w away, leading by over half
a minute at tho rlrat mark.
On the. windward U-g the Tartan increased her
advantage, and, running home with her spinnaker,

BRYN HAWK'S POLO TITLE.
SQUADRON A IS BEATEN.
i .—. —
Trooper 8 Make Good Fight, but
Lose Junior Championship.
Philadelphia will hold the jur!r, r polo cham
pionship for the coming: year. The Bryn Mawr
second team from that city met the S.-juadron
A team yesterday In the only competition for
that title, and won In an excellent exhibition of
polo under trying conditions by the s. ore of
C% to 3% goals.
The me was played on the big 0«M at Van
Cortlandt Park, which is Bquadron A's head
quarters for polo. A more miserable day for an
Important polo competition has not been aeen
this season. The fleid was as soft as a rubber
cushion, and, after the first period, it was sr>
badly cut up that It was almost impossible to
carry the bal! for any dlstarj with reasonable
accuracy. On more than one occasion the
sphere was completely buried In the mire and
the referee waa forced to throw la a new cne.
A steady rain fell throughout the game and
a thick mist him.? over the field, making the
worst possible light for polo. In the fir;. period,
with the deepening twilight, the ■pcetaton on
the side lines were absolutely unable to follow
the erratic movements of the bail.
The Polo Association, whose blue flag held the
position of honor next to the Stars and Stripes
on the new flagpole near the Van Cortlandt
manor house, was represented by H L Herbert
and W. A. Hazard, chairman and secretary, re
spectively, while Foxhall Keene. who seldom

sufficient to show what might have been had the

ter a discussion in the afternoon to hold th«
It the first period the Squadron filled Its few
friends with great expectations. They did all
the scoring, which Is not exactly the same as
saying they did ail the piaying, but they got' the
results. Douglas, who was always to be de
pended upon, took the first goal from a brilliant
run nearly the entire length of the fieUJ. Then
Nellson. the youngest player on th<> field, took
the ball from Bryn Mawr and fairly flew down
the field, riding one of R. L. Beeckman's old
time favorites, Mineola. now owned by Joseph
H. Hunt. His run was award by a goal.
and less than four minutes after he made an
other. This gave the Squadron three goals, and
Bryn Mawr began the second period without a
A decided change came over the match in the
second period. Bryn Mawr pushed the game
from the start, and showed what they could do
under favorable conditions by making- five goals,
while the Squadron failed to score. Bryn Mawr
excelled in all around team work, and the men,
having had more experience, were quicker in
getting to the ball, and hit with more power and
accuracy. Douglas and Neilson were the only
reliable hitetrs for the Squadron, and the troop
ers did not hold their positions so well as the
Brown made three of the goals in the second
period and Harrison and Strawbridge one each.
The third period was full of excitement. The
Squadron put forth its best efforts, and. to the
surprise of the critics. Its defence was so good
that Bryn Mawr was completely shut out and
the troopers scored once. Hunt getting the poTnt
after a spectacular run the whole length of the
field by Douglas.
The score ar the end of the third period was
4% for Bryn Mawr to 2\ for the troopers, and
there was yet a chance for the soldier lada to
keep the Junior championship for the Xew-York
clubs. But they were not equal to It-
Harrison was thrown In one of the runs down
the field, but he was not injured, although h«
tore up the muddy turf for more than twenty .
feet Strawbridge and" Brown added the final
scores for their side, and then, with darkness
gathering over the field so that the ponies looked
like mere phantoms, the rival teams lined up In
the centre of the field and cheered for each other
right heartily. Rockaway held the junior cham
pionship last year, but made no defence this
year. The line-up and sunfmary follows:
