' llandhnnp at nd Odd Favorite Scarce
A holiday crowd of full jr 0,000 persons braved
the torrid temperature at Hheepshead liar
track yesterday. The few who brought de
tachable collar discarded them after a wilting
hour in the grand stand, but the majority camo
equipped for tbo ooeaaion. and went about tho
rather trying amusement of picking winners
with an amount of energy that Was startling in
face of the apoplectic thermometer.
The outing was brimful of sensations, and
the amateur plungers who made the trip to
ptay favorite horses and jockeys returned home
inch cooler and wiser. Two first choices
managed to win. but at prices that made little
amends for the losses on the other races.
Joan seemed to have a persistent following,
hut he failed to land a winner. He finished
outside the money In the first and second
vents, but the sensational slump did not come
ntll the third race.
This was the Flatbush Stakes for two-year-old.
In which Sydney Paget's recent purchase,
afean Bercnud. figured to so outclass his field
nt the weights that 7 to 10 was grabbed up all
over tho ring. With Sloan In the saddle th
alteSTed "eh:ininlnn nf Mm vn.ir " vtli nTneoiecl
to smother his nine opponents; but Instead he
ran in miserable form and wan out of the hunt
after the youngsters ran half a furlong. Outside
j Jean Bercand there were fancy prices on offer.
4 Autumn and W. Overton wero quoted at 8 to 1,
James Galway's Ethelbert caught some ad-
1 mirers at 12 to 1 : 15 to 1 was marked un
against the Morris combination. FUlgrane and
, Puke of Mlddloburg. while .1. R Mndden's
f rohslnn and W. llendrie's Futurity winner,
Mortlmns. went begging at 25 to 1.
Mnrtiinoa was the prominent contender
throughout. lie showed in front ut every pole,
and won handsomely by a length. Autumn beat
Frohsinn half a length, whilo the Madden colt
finished only a nook in front of Ethelbert. It
was a stirring flulsli between this quartet,
with Klngdon. Filigrano and Manuel also
pretty close In line. There hod been some
bumping on the baokatretch. and also in tho
run home, and some of the beaten jockeys pro
tested. The result was the disqualification of
Martlmas. Ills owner, who stood by the judges'
lncloaure. accepted the ruling in most sports
manlike fashion, and contented himself with
the remark : " I won the Futurity. I won again
to-day. and I am satisfied. I don't care a blank
for the money."
.Meanwhile the confident backers of Jean
. Soreeud wore wondering what had happened
y to the crack. If he had ever been a factor they
would have been satisfied, but he never seemed
to have speed enough to go up to his Held. He
went to the post looking fat, but ho Is of such
stocky conformation that few of his admirers
weakened. Sloan apparently worked hard on
him. and the collapse of the oolt can only
be set down as on of those nncertatn-
i lea to be looked for in horseracing.
t is current paddock talk that he had been
tried out recently aa better than High Degree,
and the rumor la supported by the significant
fact that Sydney Paget bought the fatter filly
since she ran second to Martlmas for the Futur
ity. Horsemen ascent the situation philospphl
cally as a parallel case to the failure of Ham
, burg In the Belmont Stakes at Morris Park last
spring. The three-year-old bos redeemed his
reputation gloriously since, and the chances
si are that Jean Bereaud will yet reward those
who think he is the best two-year-old in train-
The two-year-old upset was followed by the
lost of the autumn's handicaps the Omnium
for which nine clever performers turned out
for a race over the full track circuit of one mile
mid a furlong. Again the plungers pinned
' their faith to Sloan and made Damien favorite.
Argol. nt the ridiculously liberal odds of 8 to 1,
led all the way and won by a length and a half.
The Huguenot ran rather sluggishly for a
m I lo, but then closed fast and took tho place by
three lengths from Bangle.
Lady Mitchell proved to bathe speediest in
tho crack field of ten which started the ball
rolling. She came through from the rear in the
strotch and won by a length and a half, with
Octave, Scotch Plaid, and Oharentus heads
opart. Gala Day, heavily played, won the seo
ond race in a romp. He was entered to be sold
for 9500, and E. O. PearsaU bid him up to
fl,500 before giving war to the owner.
Helen Thomas won the dash for maiden
two-year-olds down the Futurity course
In clever style from The lady in Blue, and
, . Diversion, the even-money favorite, captured
i tne steeplechase comfortably. In the latter
event Jubilee and Herman the Great fell, and
their riders. Mattocks and Anderson, wore
badly shaken up.
Tho races were all started without the as
sistance of the line-up gate, the Executive
Committee having bulletined the following

A Stout Ban Between OUea Noye and
Courier-Journal at Readvllle.
BsATrraixs. Sept. 8. Were It not for the
closeness of the finishes In the 2:08 pace the
races of the closing day's card at Readvllle
would have been without intcrcbt. Senseless
scoring on the part of the drivers so delayed all
the contests that it was lmposslblo to finish the
2:11 pace and the race had to be decided on the
basis of the three heats decided. The 2:08
pace, the only big race of the day, narrowed
down to a struggle between Courier-Journal
and Oiles Noyos.
The 2:15 trot was an easy thing for Aires.
He disposed of his field without great difficulty
and reeled off three straight heats. Five addi
tional heats were required to wind up the 2:12
trot left over from yesterday, with four horses
dividing the heats among them. Jasper Ayres,
that bad two heats to his credit last night, was
unsteady during the first four heats to-day
and failed to make a showing. The best he
could do was to finish fourth in the
third heat. Jasper Ayres recovered his
form In the seventh heat, and, getting a good
position at the word, led the field all the way
round to the half, Oeerglanna threatened to
Sve trouble in the strotch, but went off her
et and was set back for running. Three
lata were contested in the 2:11 pace when
darkness camo on. Indiana hod: won two
heats and Evangeline one. The judges gave
the race to Indiana and aaeond money to
2:12 class; trotting: purs 81,600,

fow residents drove out. The big match of
the day was the finals for ths President's Cup

thought that the Intter would win. but at the

He was poor on brassey shots, topping his ball

nearly every hazard and bunker on the course,
but when on tho green he was quite accurate.
Hubbard, on the contrary, put up a good game,

Ut. X. B. H. Blaekwell la probably the most
consistently long driver the world has overseen.
and his name has become a household word
among golfers. Bom in 1838. he began to play
as soon as he could walk, and the advnntago of
this early commencement is to be seen In the
most perfect style conceivable, a full, freo
swing, characterised by commending power.
His early boyhood wa spent In St. Andrew's,
where he went to Dr. Browning's School, and
before ho loft, at the age ot about 13, he won a
prize with the score of 104.
Hs has been, on tho whole, very little In this
country, and haa consequently ployed In very
few competitions, but just before he sailed to
America, in 1SS6. a match was arranged be
tween htm and Jack Simpson, then at the very
sonlth of his great powers. Jack bad won the
championship In 1H84. at which time ho and
Douglas Rollnnd were about a match as far as

driving was concerned. Holland. Indeed, used
to say that he thought his friend had rather the
pull of him. At any rate, the two may be called
the pioneers of the exceedingly long driving,
which now. perhaps, has becomo somewhat
less uncommon. But. in tho match under no
tice the amateur more than held his own In this
department, and. mainly In consequence there
of, defeated the ex-champion by one bole In the
thirty-six. The match was played at St. An-
" Mr. Blaekwell did not return until 1892. when,
being elected a member of the R. and A., he
forthwith won the Autumn Medal with tho
then record score of 82. Just previously he
had entered for the .Open Championship at
Mulrfleld, finishing thirteenth, with :121 ; Mr.
Hilton. 30u. being the winner. Partnered by
Kay. whom Mr. Blaekwell habitually outdrove
by 00 or t)0 yards, the professional remarkod
that ho was unable to understand golf played
under suph conditions.
Not till 1897 did Mr. Blaekwell reappear,
when he scored 85 for tho Autumn Modal of
Oie R. and A., won by Mr. Mure Fergusson with
80. The four-ball match which he played In
Partnership with Mr. Talt against Andrew
Elrkaldy and Willie AuohterTonle was de
scribed at tbe tlmo In this papor. Suffice it
here to say that Mr. Blaekwell consistently out
drove the other three all day long, and that ono
of his rounds was 70. on a very heavy green,
and the other but little worse. In the first
round the professionals did not win a single
hole, and in the end were badly beaten.
Mr. Blaekwell passed most of the winter at
Pau, where he won the Ville de Pnu medal : he
played against Biarritz, represented by Mr.
E. 0, Hambro and De Zoete. with Mr. Charles
Hutchlngs as his partner, and won the
match. Returning to Scotland, he entered
for the Open Champions hi p. but failed to
do himself justice, partly, perhaps, owing to
his fooling "out of sorts'' at the time. He has
never entered for the amateur championship,
but hopes to do so next year.
He is the only man who has ever driven the
Long Hole at St. Andrew's In two, both ways.
The distance Is 610 yards. Ho was out prac
ticing, drove up to the hole in two. and. turning
back, drove it again. He has also driven from
the tee at theSwilcan Burn uptothe steps lead
ing to the R. and A. clubhouse. This la prob-
ablv over .'lft( varrls
Physicolly Mr. Blaekwell Is a perfect type of
athletic strength. Splendidly built, he Is (3 foot
in height and fourteen stono In weight, with
enormously powerful forearm and wrist, and
every ounce of power Is put into the stroke. It
is nothing uncommon to see him outdrive An
drew Kirkaldy fully forty yards, even when the
professional nits one of his best. Ordinary
hazards do not exist for Mr. Blaekwell. Many
would think it a little hard to be trapped in a
bunkor 220 yards off. but ho would play at it In
full confidence of carrying it. and. if he were in
his best driving, would succeed with plenty to
spare. He plays with long, heavy and stiff
clubs, and his terrible cleek was once described
as n weaver's beam with an old boot at the cod
Two of his brothers drive nearly as faros
himself, and one of them, Mr. W. F. Blaekwell,
was a magnificent thrower, having, when a boy
at Glenalmond. thrown the orioket ball 123
yards. The youngest. Mr. Ernley Blookwoll, is
well known as a first-class player, so that allo-
5 ether a more formidablo quartet It would be
Ifflcult to discover.

COXTKKTfl AT A LOCAL ri.lH.
Haw the Fights Are Handled, What tha
Oalrint !o and Reneral Appearanre of
tha Arena While the Itattlea Are (In
lug On-TJte Manager' Tribulations.
The handling of Important glove contests In
one of the big local athletic clubs Is n matter of
much labor, mora thsn the general public has
any Idea or, while on boxing nights there are so
ninny minor Incidents In nnd about the ring
that In the excitement of the moment specta
tors do not see everything. At one of tho big
clubs the other night a 8v man looked
about him and noted a number of occur
rences that mny lie of Interest to those
who like to read of fighters and their doings.
The entrance to the building wns thrown open
at 7 o'clock, nearly two hours before the first
fight was scheduled to take place, nnd the man
afar stationed himself close to the turnstiles
to get them In good running order. He didn't
stay there long, however, for he was soon a
targnt for such comments as these, whloh
came from men outside tho gates:
" Say. Tom, I've got a couple of friends with
me. Kin they come In ?"
" Hello, Tom, I lost the ticket yer glvs me
and I thought I'd coma np and toll yer.
Thanks, old man I Now I've got a couple o'
" Is it all right fer me. Tom T Ter know I
ain't been up fer some tlmo I"
These and other shots soon caused the man
ager to got into a private room. Before going
he told the gatekeepers to say that hs had not
arrived, and would not be in until late. This
served as a temporary setback for the dead
heads who blocked tha sidewalk and amoked
bad cigars until It was almost insufferable for
a ticket buyer to force his way to tho door.
Pretty soon fifty policemen. In charge of a Cap
tain, marched up and tramped through tha
wicket next to the turnstile. Each copper was
beslogod by a small army of acquaintances on
tho sidewalk to "get 'em in." Soma succeeded
and others were left. Then a number of Cen
tral Office men, with eyes open for crooks,
walked in and joined the crowd ot sporting
men who always gather In the lobby, just after
passing the turnstiles. Here a number of big
bets were made by noted racetrack plungers
and men who make a business of "following
ths ring." As the crowd in the lobby became
more dense, the polloe were forced to act
" Please move on. gents 1" they said politely,
"the Captain's coming, and he'll give us fits If
yon don't get a movo on." Nobody was pushed,
hauled or mauled. No clubs were drawn, and
yet the short-haired "gents" obeyed without a
murmur. It was half past 8 o'clock then, and
the people were coming In a long, serpentine
line. Hacks and carriages were driving uo to
the door, and men well known in public life
were mingling with characters whose records
are on filo In Mulberry street.
Then, all of a sudden, there was a stampede
toward n group of solidly built young fellows
who walked rapidly through the gate. Oneot
them wore a plaid golf cap, tho visor pulled
well over his eyes, a black sweater, and trousers
turned tip so es to show heavy ten walking
shoes. He carried a cane and there was a suspicious-looking
bundle under his arm.
" That's one of the btokes wot'a goln ter fight
to-night," said a red-hot sport, who had dia
monds everywhere bnt In his ears. " Hollo
there, Billy, how d'yer feel ?"
" Hello, Jack." said the fighter. " I feel out o'
sight." The fellows who followed the pugilist
also carried bundles, and all hands hurried oil
to the dressing rooms.
Inaiae of tho arena all was bustle and excite
ment. The towering bleachers were already
filled with men and boys In their shirt sleeves,
who wero at least iro feet from the ring. Tbe
reserved seats behind the private boxes wore
not so generously patronized, probably because
it cost three, times as much to occupy one as a
porch on the hard boards at tho extreme ends
of the building. While the crowd waited, men
went about selling "soft drinks." No bar Is
allowed in the clubhouse, and. consequently, no
intoxicating liquors are sold.
"Here's yer nice cold sass and soda, gents I
Bight off the ice!" Considering the oppressive
heat in tho building, in spite of a half dozen
olectrio fans that buzzed In prominent places,
this cooling cry of the waiters made many a
sport buy a bottle and drink the contents from
"A history of the prize ring. All the fighters,
gents; their records and pictur'sl (July a dime,
ten cents!" Tho man who yelled this soon
disposed of a towering pile of pamphlets, which
wero quickly opened and the contents de-

Yellow Incandescent lamps strung from the
roof had thrown a mellow light over the crowd
from tho first opening of tho doors, but now a
circular row of gas jets and six spluttering are
lights wero turned on directly over tho ring.
This was a signal that the sport was about to
begin, nnd tne crowd began to applaud im-
fatlently. The ring, by the way, waa closely
nspocted by those who had never seen one be
fore. The floor was heavily padded and cov
ered with tightly drawn canvas. There were
eight posts around the edge of the platform
well padded, and through them were strung
the ropes, three in number. In opposite cor
ners wero woodon chairs, on each side of which
were spittoons. Tuoy wero for the fighters and
At ono corner of the ring was a place set
aside for the timekeeper. The latter was a
dark-complexioned, pleasant-faced man who
come all the way from Norton's Point to hold
the watch. His tunopiecowosof solid gold and
was of the split-second variety. In front of
him wns a heavy gong, a foot in diameter,
whloh was rung by hitting It with a solid-looking
hammer. A blankbook. in which the time
keeper recorded each round, so that no mis
takes could be made, was also in evidence.
Then the fighters for the first preliminary
were sighted coming along tno gangway from
the dressing rooms and the crowd began to
Before the principals entered the ring a man
jumped through the ropes and threw a big
paper bundlo on the floor. It contained a set
of five-ounce boxing gloves. Then he took
two circular boxes from his pockets and began
to sprinkle powdored resin all over the canvas.
The dust flew In the eyes, noses, and ears of
those close to tho ringside, but they didn't
mind it a bit.
Just then a stout fellow with a blue sleeve
less jersey and suspenders over his shoulders
supporting a pair of trousers somewhat whis
kery atthe bottoms, climbed Into tho ring. He
hod a sponge In bis right hand, a towel over bis
arm, and with his left lie lugged a pail of water.
Ho was the chief second nnd handler of a
Brooklyn pugilist, who was expected to win the
preliminary bout. There woro assistant sec
onds, too. nt least half a dozen. Some carried
lemons, others bottles of soda and water, while
one or two hail big pieces of ice and palm leaf
fans. The fighter brought up tho rear, wear
ing a slouch cap, a sweater and long trousers.
These things were quickly discarded and
then the boxer stood up.nnked but for a breech
clout of white linen, and black fighting shoes.
The other lighter hail appeared, nieunwhlle.
with 1111 oqual number ot seconds. Ho bad
linen bandages on his hands and rubber ban
dages around his knees, resembling some
what a dotting horse In this respect, llothsut
in their corners, oying each other und tho
crowd, while the referee was being hunted up.
During the wait mon with rolls of money
walked about among tho boxes and resorved
seats and offered to bet '.' to 1 on the Brooklyn
boxer. They locnted most of their money, and
then hunted up tholr own seats. The referee,
a thick-set, smooth-faced fellow, now got into
the ring. He removed his hat. coat, vest, col
lar and cuffs, and bunded tbem all to a friend.
Then he railed the lighters to the centre of tho
ring and Issued instructions, something like
"Now. follows, I want.you to box according
to Qneensberry rules. When I order you to
break, no more blows can Is delivered on nulu

The master of ceremonies, with his hat just
raised from Ills head, now hopped into the "(li

"Order, please, gentJ,!" was Ids first com

"Gents," he continued. " vou must all slop

Tho roferoe thou stepped over to tho time
keeper and said:
"AH right, let her go!"
The timekeeper looked at Ills watch until the
hands were ubout ruddy to begin u new minute
when ho yelled:
"(jet ready!" Then ho hit the gong a haul

The timer never look his eyes olT his watch lor
the next three minutes, at the end of .which

minute' re-1. and the fighters hurried to their
corners, where the seconds had climbed
through tho ropes uud were salting for thorn.

The postponed race of the yachts owned by
members of the Jamaica Bay Yacht Club and
sailed by their wives was won to-day by Mrs.
George Becker with the yacht Tessie by nenrly
two minutes. Mrs. Charles B. Welden camo in
second with her yacht Meteor. The weather
was ideal for yachting and a large number of
members and friends were in attendance at the
clubhouse. Tho raco was over the short course,
from the starting line at the clubhouse to and
around Block House buoy to Broad Channel ;
thence back and across to starting line. Eight
yachts competed, and for over half tne course
the contest was very close. A novel feature was
the conditions of tbe race, which required that
not more than ono male attendant should be in
each boat, and that tho yacht was to be sailed
by the wife of one of the members and the
crow to be composed of women. To guard
against accidents the Regatta Committee
patrolled the course and had a number of boats
on hand in cose of accidents. Tim prizes wore
awarded by Mrs. Commodore W. W. Butcher.
The annual Labor Day regatta will take place
to-morrow, and will be open to clublboats
only. A number of valuable prizes have been
offered by tho club, and also by n number of
members, including William Sefiecr and Mr.
Kchwonke, Vice-Commodore Benjamin F. Daly
and Albert Baynoo,
Varuna Oarsmen Compete.

which the beat did ita beat to deatroy. Three ot the
event were very aeneibly dropped from the pro
gramme because of tbe heat and will be decided
later on. The course was one mile in length. In tho

no suggestions at the meet Ing and loft every
thing to the New York Yacht Club, as you can
see when I tell you that I know nothing about
