COLIN WIXS THE RICH BELMONT VNMKATKS COLT PILLS IP AS SOUXD AS VXER. Big Holiday Croxcd Enjoy* Good Sport m Spile of a Driv ing Rain. Jam*** R. Keene"? unbeaten Colin, the horse which was thought to bo hopclossiy-brokcn down on Thursday, went to the post In the rich Bel mont Stakes of $25,000 at Helmont Park yester day and won his fourteenth straight race, amid m. perfect bedlam of cheers. He made all the running and came swinging into the stretch some three or four lengths in front. August Belmont's Fair Play gave determined challenge, however, fo that Notter dinar his whip and shook up the son of Commando — Pastorella at the la^t furlong pole, only to put it down when the frreat colt responded. Then Colin began to loaf again, and Nutter, mistaking: the regular finish line for the real one, in front of the club house for this particular race, almost brought about the colt's defeat, ■■ he began to ease him up. E. Dugaa. wide awake to the opportunity to snatch the rich prize, drove Fair Play out. and Colin only won by a scant half length, hut vita pounds in reserve. The *cen'- at the finish almost beggars de- Fcription. Between 30.000 and SSwOOO person?, out for a holiday, v.ere packed and Jammed In the two big Elands, and each one flood up and cheered and shouted and clapped, carried away ,v the desire to express full appreciation for the victory of the king of thoroughbreds, which only the day before was said to be lost to the turf. When N«'tter brought Colin back to the stand after pulling up the cheors broke out afresh. and men waved their hats, while some went so far as to throw theirs in the air. It was the most remarkable greeting ever accorded to a racehorse in this country, and attested full well the wonderful popularity of the unbeaten son of Commando. The race was run over a sloppy track and in a driving rain, and little could be seen of the horses in the run around the tortuous S-shaped track over which this particular race alone is run. The horses looked like wraiths in the mist and the colors could not be distinguished. Even after the turn Into the straight was made there was some question about whether it ■was Colin or some other horse racing along In front. Once the colors of the vice-chairman of the Jockey Club were recognized, however, the cheering began, and it did not end until Colin was safely 1 , : st the winning post, and then only subsided long enough for those who wore shout- Ing to get their breath. Fair Play fought on in Earnest fashion and ran a brilliant race, but King James and Robert Cooper, the other start ers, were hopelessly beaten off. -*»t^T« share of the rich prize was *l>».7i">.". which bring* his total winnings up to $163. 441' 25. James R. Keene was at the track to see Colin run. and for once he lost his wonted calm and actually threw away bis umbrella in the es citment of the nniah. as it looked for a moment as if Colin would be beaten, in spite of the fact t:.at he was hardly more than galloping through the last few strides. Once the finish line was passed, however. Mr. Keene was his old. quiet pelf again, and accepted the congratulations of Ma Meeds who crowded around him with hardly a sign of elation. lie followed the horse out to the paddock through the driving rain, and stood around while Jimmy Howe super intended the cooling out. He looked him over with critical <>>- and turned away «atisfied. as to all aj'i>earano«-s ("olin was as sound and hi* legs were as clean as the day he was foaled. In talking of the race Mr. Keene said that he feared that Notter mistook the finishing point, which might have cost Colin the race, and add*-d that did not think the horse showed to his best advantage in the mud. Jimmy Rom had Instruct* i Nutter to keep Colin up to his work to the end. and remarked afterward, when some one suggest^d That it was a close shave: "Yes, but not through any fault of the horse. He could have gune another turn of the track." The coming hack of Colin was almost as un« expected and sensational as the announcement last Thursday, that he would never race again. Late Friday night the first intimation came that the injuries which it had been feared would mean his retirement had been found to be only superficial. The news quickly spread that Colin •was at the track and the big crowd waited with eager interest to see if Mr. ECeene would add him to the Belmont Stakes under the unfavor able conditions. When his name was posted on the jockey board this interest Increased, and when he came out of the paddock gate on the way to the post be was greeted with a cheer that was second only to the one which bailed his victory a few minutes later. Mr. Keene decided to start Colin after a long and careful examination yesterday morning. wh*n there vat not the faintest sign of the trouble which had caused so much concern only two days before. The horse had been carefully pointed fnr this particular race, and inasmtfeh as he appeared io be in perfect condition Mr. Keene determined that as a test was necessary If CoMn was to T>e kept in training he might as well take .'• chance of breaking hUn down per- BBasjeafry in * net- rather than in a hard work out While Coijn pulled up sound and cooled out well. Mr. Keene said that he would not be «intirely satisfied until to-morrow that the great colt anas all right. The victory of "~"iiri was not the only inter esting feature of the day's sport, which brought to an end the ;nost successful meeting ever held by the Westchester Racing Association. The teeming rain drove everybody to cover, and the weather conditions wore dreary enough, but this peem /.(l to have little or no effect on the good humor of the crowd. • John E. Maiden's Sir Martin, a son of Oprden La3v st«=r:ing, won the eleventh running of the National Stallion Race, after a long and spirited drive with James R. K«ene's Selectman and Mr. Ha<Mrn*s other starter. Joe Madden. The race was worth J5.330 to the winner, and Sir Martin won in a way to stamp him a good colt. Harry Payne Whitney's pair. Bobbin and Sandpiper, ran below expectations and were not prominent at the finish. J. W".

Dr. Leaker considers the offer made by Munich and the German Chess Association too email, and he will not meet the German champion on those terms. The latter, on the other hand, has announced his readiness to play under such condi tions. His only stipulation was that the match be played somewhere in Germany, because, being- by profession a physician, he could not leave the coun try for a protracted period. Dr. Lasker is reported to have held out for the sum of $5,000 a side if th« match were played In Germany. GRAVESEND ENTRIES FOR MONDAY.

The first period of play ended in favor of th» Brooklyn clubmen, however. The score then was 2 goals to 1. Notwithstanding the driving rain, a fair sized crowd watched the contest. The turf was exceed ingly slippery, and the players had great difTlculty ln keeping their feet. Th% contest was even, and the spectators were kept In an uproar by the spir ited work. Crefct-nt took tbe aggressive as soon as the game started, and inside of the first minute of play O'Rourke made a very pretty goal. The fame player made the second point, scoring- after fifteen minutes of spirited play. Before the half endsd McSloy. the clever home man of the visitors, scored for Toronto. The Canadians showed far more aggressiveness during the second period. McSloy found the net after rive minutes of dose play, and noon after Rainore broke the tie and scored the winning goal by a clever thot. The summary of the main match follows: Toronto. Position.
