Good Card Offered for Opening
Day at Benning Track.
The call of the bugle v.ill be heard at Ben
fjinc in snmina. nnd nhen the field goes to the
post for the first race it will mark the opening
of 'he Eastern racing season of 1907 urni^r the
control of the Jockey Club. The faithful will
respond to the rail with an enthupla*rn born of
a -lore for the thoroughbred and a keen desire
to see them, once more In action, after an en
forced abFiincnce of four long months. The
Washington Jockey Club has provided a good
card for the opening day, with the first half of
the Bennlns Spring Handicap, at six furlongs.

horses In the South and Far West and by hun
dreds of others who are already on the scene or
v.ho will go over to-night and early to-morrow
Unless all signs fail, the season which begins
to-morrow will be a memorable one. While
there is a dearth of high class horses In the
four-year-old and upward division, the three
year-olds promise to make the year one of the
snost successful in the history of the sport.
From first to last a racing feast appears to be in

<been forward in making such Improvements as

generous with their patronage as the Jockey

to almost every suggestion made to place the

The stars of the turf world will not be seen
at Benning. It is too early !n the year, and the
stakes and purses are not rich enough to attract
the best. There will be plenty of good horses
on hand, however, and the fields are likely to
'be large and well balanced. Stable room is at
'a premium, and every stall is occupied, so that
the late- comers will have to find accommoda
tions outside the track- Among those who will
race at Benning are August Belmont. F. R.
! Hitchcock. Thomas Hitchcock. Jr.. H. T. Ox

have been prepared In th© South. Billy Garth,
who has the Rainey horses, among others, will
bear watching. His horses are fit. according to
reports, and he will have first call on both Miller
and Radtke, two of the best Jockeys.
BThe track at Benning Is In good condition, al
though It will not be fast. The inclosure is In
apple pie order, as the Washington Jockey Club
lias been indefatigable In Its efforts to make
the course a model one in every detail. The
steeplechases will be a feature of the meeting.

Yankee Girl Cut Of in Rich Stake
at yew Orleans.
New Orleans. March 23.-Montgomery won the
Crescent City Derby of SO.OGO. at one mile and a
furlong, at the Fair Grounds track to-day in the
fast time of 1:53»t. A big crowd was in attendance
and the victory was popular, as Montgomery was
a well played favorite at 6 to 2, on the strength of
some goon trials at Memphis
Temtcen. winner of the California Derby, was
second, while Oargantua. the extreme outsider,
beat Yankee Girl, winner of the City Park Derby a
week ago. a neck for third money. Montgomery is
a chestnut colt by Pessara— Montgomery Cooper,
ar.d is owned by Chlnn & Porsythe. The winner's
share of the stake was $8.00.
Nine horses went to the post, with Montgomery,
Yankee Girl and Sir Toddlngtcn In chief demand.
Temaceo also had a strong following, being backed
from 12 to Itoßto 1. The start wm good and
Xicol took Sir Toddington to the front and allowed
him to make the pace around the paddock turn and
up the backetretch Morales and Tileing followed,
heads apart, with Montgomery In a good position, a
length away, and the others trailing. Shilling, who
had the mount on the favorite, showed good Judg
ment in avoiding the early pace.
Turning for home Montgomery moved up on the
outside while Yankeo Girl, which had Improved her
position gradually, challenged on the rail. Sir
Toddington capitulated at the last sixteenth pole,
and Montgomery came away to win by a length in
a mild drive. Yankee Girl might have forced him
out. but she was cut off at a critical tlmo and
held in a pocket. Temaceo and Gargantua closed
•with a rush through the last furlong and the
former earned the place by a short head. Morales
and Tileing gave It up in trying to run Sir Todding
ton down.
Mollle Montrose. at the prohibitive price of 1 to
7, won her eighth consecutive victory In the two
year-old race, and incidentally made a new track
record for four furlongs of 3-5 seconds, in spite
of the fact that she was being eased up at the end.

Except for the Feoond Bet the local player

was not unexpected. Gould played a floor game

almost no chance to reach the openings. At no

Difficulty in Getting Strong Team to
Go Abroad.
The rumor that has been current in lawn tennis
circles that the international challenge for the
I) wight F. Davis Cup might be cancelled was dis
pelled yesterday when the committee Issued a
statement that put all fears to rest. The rumor
grew out of the difficulty in selecting a representa
tive team. Beals C*. Wright, the ex-nntlonal cham
pion, and the young player ' Karl H. Behr, Jr., are
apparently the only players available. The former
is showing poor form on the* Riviera, where he has
been playing the last two weeks. Harold H. Hack
ett and Raymond P. Little, who have been men
tioned for the other places on the team, have Blade
tentative excuses that would seem to indicate that
they will remain at home.
There is only one thing which sheds a ray of
hope over the conditions, and that is the fact that
the Knglish Lawn Tennis Association has agreed
to hold the international matches the last two
weeks of July. This arrange ment will afford ample
time for practice by the Americans, which was not
the case last year, when the matches were played
the first, weeks of June.
A suggestion has been made that an oprn tourna
ment be held on the round robin order for the pur
pose of selecting a team. In upholding the merits
t.t this plan a well known player said yesterday:
The fairest way to select the players to compete
for the cup would be by competition, and several
leading lawn tennis men in this country would i>e
mare than glad to see such a method of selection
euperncde the present system, which Is nomination
by a committee of three. The lest plan would he to
have a hard contest for a week, or even two weeks
In which twenty men might try for the single- and
about ten pairs for the doubles. This would be
fair to the lawn tennis players in America for
only the best men would enter the competition As
it stands now, we have been beaten in the last two
matches for the Davis Cup. and yet. by the. nomi
nation system, we are likely to be represented tills
year by practically the same players who have lost
the mat. lies before.

Georgians Use Bats to Good Ad
vantage Against Barger.
Macon. Ga.. March 23.— For the second time
this season the. New York American League
team felt the sting of defeat to-day, and again
it was at the hands of the speedy Macon play
ers. The score was 4 to 3. Hughes pitched
grat ball for the Yankees during the first half
of the game and thon Barger succeeded him.
The Southerners found the young twirler for
two pineries and a double in the seventh Inn'nsr,
netting them two runs, which proved enough to
win the game. The Highlanders rallied In the
final Inning, but could not overcome the lead
held by the Georgians.
It was a hard blow to Clark Griffith, but his
disappointment was partly offset when he re
membered that several players on his team are
In very poor physical condition. Th« line-up to
day Included Morlarity at first base, Kleinow at
the second station and Clarkson tn left field.
This combination was far from satisfactory to
the "old fox," but it was the best ho could do
under the circumstances.
The Highlanders started the game with a
dash. Hoffman hit for three bases and scored
when Keeler singled. In the next inning Hughes
doubled to right field. Hoffman brought him
home with a neat single. Then the run getting
on the part of the New Yorkers was halted until
the final inning. The hitting was well divided,
the visitors petting fourteen hits to thirteen by
the local players. Griffith is glad the Macon
trip is over The score follows:
