MANISTER TOI AWAKES Hera's Horso, Bank Outsider, Huns Best Ha'co of Ycaiy Ncarly Winning. r Roamer, the little old bay gelding whoso speed and courage have earned him the undisputed title of "King of the Turf," won the Pierrepont Handicap, the feature event of the programme at th Jamaica track yesterday afternoon. The old fellow ran a great race, and In a hurricane finish passed the Judges a neck In front of Emit Hen's Manister Tol, which was an added starter. A. K. Macomber's War Cloud was the only otner contestant. He nnlsned third, a length behind Manister Tel. The champion carried 127 pounds and stepped over the one mile and a fur long course against a strong wind In the exceptionally fast tlmo of 1 :52 3-5. This Is only three-fifths of a second behind uie track record nunc up by Richard T. Wilson Jr.'a Tartar In 1915. When Tartar established tho record he carried only 9B pounds. Although Roamer's race was consid ered little snort or phenomenal by a vast majority of tho crowd present. It did, not suit Andrew Miller, his owner, nor Jack Goldsborough, his trainer. Both agreed that' tho old fellow had clven ud everything? and each was lubl lant over the victory., but. both were of the opinion that he should have won by a larger margin. Other expert horsemen disagreed with them. They praised the champion for his great courage In holding his own with the Hera horse, which was carry ing the featherlike weight of 103 nounds. Manister Tol's race.wni the bent of his career. It was pounds better than ho ihr.weo In bis last race and caussd a hest of racegoers to proclaim it the worst reversal or tho year. f Manister .Tol Wakei Up. George Smith, the big black horse be longing to John Sanford, and Richard T. Wilson Jr.'a Corn Tassel were named to start, but were' withdmwn early In the afternoon. With them out Hen added Manister ToL To the crowd he was cor. sldered to havo little or no chance. Roamer was an overwhelming favo rite at 1 to 5, while War Cloud was a decided second choice. When It came to racing Manister Tol cut a big figure. Mars Cassldy sent the trio away on oven terms, but before a sixteenth ol a mile had been covered Manister Tol was speeding along In front at a terrific pace. In the first half mile he opened up a gap of half a dozen lengths on his opponents. Near the end of the backstretch Reamer, which had been running In second place, made a bid for the lead. In a few Jump he cut down the distance separating him from the leader to two lengths. But Manister Tot had an abundance of speed and continued t j sa.'l along at a dizzy pace. So fast was It that Roamer's mightiest efforts gained him only small margins at a time. But the old cham plon was full of tight and kept on his lob. As a result he gradually mado up the lost ground, and entering the home stretch was at Manister Tol's saddle girths. From then to tho eighth pole the pair struggled without either gaining an Inch. But just as the crowd was shouting "Roamer Is beaten!" Schuttlnger gave the champion three powerful cracks of the whip. They caused the courageous victor of more than 100 fjruelllng bat tics to spring forward and take the lead. Ho stuck his nose in front, but that was tho best he could do. Manister Tol would not quit. He was still full of running and for Roamer to maintain his advantago tj,the end it was necessary for Schuttlnuer to put up a finish that resembled one of Johnny Loftus's great rides. tVmr Cloud Under a Pall. During tho early part of the raco War Cloud was under restraint, but when 'let down" a 'quarter of a mile from home ho made only a feeble challenge and then quit and it was only a most vigorous finish by Loft us that kept him near the leaders. Loftus put up another one of his great rides In the Liberty Bond Handi cap on A. K. Macombef s Holllster. Blow to catch his stride, Holllster was half a dozen lengths out of tho race and ap parently badly beaten when the short home stretch was reached. But Loftus didn't think so. He knew the colt's ability and went In search of the shortest route home. After mance vrlng around for an Instant or two he saw a small opening near the rail. Into It he dashed his mount. It saved him several lengths and brought hlra within striking distance of Ima Frank and High Cost, which were leading. At tho final eighth pole Holllster loomed up as a BcrJous contender. The noted Jockey was working on him with whip, heels, and hand. Inch by Inch ho pained ground and twenty Jumps from the judges was on even terms with the leader. Then Loftus sat down and put up a vigorous hand rldo. It was all that was necessary and Holllster did his best under It and gradually drew away and won by half a length. Salvestra came with a rush in the run through tho stretch and got up In time to earn sec ond honors by a head. Ima Frank was third, a few Inches in front of, High Cost. Holllster sped tho six furlongs in the fast time of 1:12 3-5. Bet, tho steeplechase mare owned by W. R. Coe. earned brackets on the flat in the first race. She defated a big field or maidens at one mile and seventy yards In easy fashion. Falrbrother kept her close to the pace until the homo stretch. There he gave his chargo several cracks of tho whlD and a few digs of the heels. The old mare responded and rushed to tne front, to win by a length from Point to Point Carroll's Second 'Winner of Day Jerry Carroll, her trainer, was confi dent the mare would win and Imparted ima information to all who visited the paddock except a few professional bet tors. Because herefused to tell a well known patron of the turf that his charge 'as fit to run a good race a man well known at tho track as a bis? bettor threatened to make the trainer lose his job, saying he would- ask Mr. Coe to discharge blm. Carroll also saddled the winner of the second race when he sent Jack Mount to the noat fit as a flddla and saw him beat a field of platers in a driving; fin ish. At the end of the one mile and a sixteenth Journey Jack Mount was half' a length ahead of Intriguer, which beat Ninety Simplex half a dozen"lengths for the place. 1IYDEWOOD ClOLP SCORES.

RACEGOERSMVE W MILLION LOAN Sabscribo $132,700 More Bringing Total So Far Up to $820)700. The Liberty Loan drive at the Ja maica, race track took a great Jump toward the 31,000.000 mark yesterday afternoon, when 3132,700 was subscribed. This hrought the total for the week up to IS26.700. To help the cause along Uncle Sam sent a full company of hla veteran doughboys and several of his best avla. tors to the course. They went through their warlike manoeuvres and earned thunderous applause. The airplanes shot up and down and around the course a dozen times and did stunts that added many thrills to the day's good racing. Before the drive began at 2Vclock mere was a pony race. It furnished a spirited contest and was won bv Will lam Karrick's Rowdy, ridden by a little negro named Holmes. Immediately after in is race Jack Adler and "Big Ed" Ryan mounted the' steps of the grand stand I ana told the worth of Uncle Bam a wares. They proved good sellers, for scarcely had they finished lauding the boys in the trenches than there was a wild rush by the racegoei to do their bit. When this ruBh was over Lieut J. P. Gavin of the Oas Defence Division made another request for funds for the boys. His talk aroused a great burst of en thusiasm and there was more business at the booths. A few minutes before the first race Lieut T. J. T. Bibb. Jr., came sweeping down over the track In an airplane. He brought a Liberty Loan message from the filers at Mlneola. With the message he had his check for his month's pay. "If some one will cash this check I will buy a 150 bond If you fellows will do tho same," he told the crowd. "This Is all the money I own, but I will gladly part with It for Uncle Sam. He needs the money more than you do or I do and If you loan to him what he wants he'll pay It back and in the meanwhile he will crush the despicable creatures who are trying to murder your relatives and friends over there." This appeal again sent the crowd in quest of receipts for their money. Hun dreds crowded around the booths and pushed and shoved each other In their eagerness to buy the cheap bonds. The largest subscriber of the day was H. D. Brown, president and general manager of the Cuban-American Jockey Club of Havana. He bought 325,000 worth. J. K. McGrath boosted the amount 310,000, while R. A. Kennedy, C Sales. W. Rosenberg, Frederick John son, Harry K. Knapp and A. R. Klein each subscribed 5,000. - Frank 'J. Moore made his second sub scription of 33,000 and Frank Shaun- nessy bought 35,000. TJ. OF P. VS. PITTSBURG. IleTlsed Schedule Calls for Game Between Elevens on Nor. O. PiTTSBuao, Pa., Oct D.

TEST CASE FOR PLAYERS A Ust case In the action of various I major league ball players to obtain tneir salaries from September 2, when the seasdh was closed, until October 14, the date on which their contracts for the year terminated, yesterday was decided by the National Commission against the players. The case was that of Jake Daubert, captain of the Brooklyn club, against Charley Ebbets. Daubert asked for 32.130 on his season's contract for. 19.000. The claim was denied by Carry Herrmann and Ban Johnson, who acted without John Heydler. The head of the National Leaa-ue Issued no opinion, but no doubt Is In concord with hla asso ciates. Whether Daubert will go to .court remains to be seen. Ills five year con tract for a total of 345.000 has expired. Herrmann and Johnson dismissed the ctalm on the ground that the Brooklyn club was forced to suspend as the result of a Government order ending the activ ities of the major leagues. ' Daubert submitted evidence whlchi showed-he- held a contract covering the period from 1914 through to 1318 at a salary of 39.000 a season. On September 2 he was paid '3202, which, with previous payments, totalled $6,850 for tho 1913 season to that date. He filed claim with the National Commission for the differ ence between that sum and 39,000, al leging the Brooklyn club was liable for the full amount The National Commis sion In Its finding states: "Wnllo It Is true that the Brooklyn Club agreed to pay the player his speci fied salary for the playing season for each of the years 4n which he was under contract with that club and that the con tract recited that the playing season would begin on or about April 14 In each of said years and end on or about October 14, there was nothing to pre vent the league of which the Brooklyn Club was a member, by appropriate action, cutting the season short. This was made necessary by the work or fight ruling of the Government herein referred to. The Brooklyn club was unable to finish the season because of the Impos sibility of retaining the services of Its players In view of the Government order and for that reason that club was wjthlrv Ita rights In glvng notice of the termina tion of all Its contracts with its players if they desired to do so. The claim of the player Is therefore dismissed." THE PORTER SPRINGS SURPRISE AT LAUREL Beats Cudgel, Midway and Omar Khayyam. Special Df patch to Turn Sex. Laursl, Md., Oct E. E. B. McLean's The Porter easily won the Baltimore Handicap of 82.000 at one mile and a sixteenth at Laurel to-day. Ho led from start to finish and earned tho Judges' decision by two lengths. Cudgel was second. In front of Midway, which beat Omar Khayyam a head for third money. Slippery Elm also started. Cudgel and Omar Khayyam were un able to catch The Porter at any'stage of the race. Bill Knapp rode Tho Porter and rated his speed so well that he made the four-year-olda leg weary trying to catch him. Omar Khayyam proved he was not at hut best by collapsing In the' stretch Just as he loomed up as a dan gerous rival for first honors. Cudgel stood tha pressure of pace better, but found the weight too great to concede.

Early In tho match Miss Zlndersteln kept pace with her rival, as they alter nated In the first six games, each break ing through her opponent's service. How ever, after that Miss BJurstedt's superior control and drlvlngLpower' evinced Itself and thereafter she had things pretty much her own way. Norse Miss Supreme, It was a pretty match to watch and contained some beautiful tennis. Play iryr the same brilliant game as she did the dav nrevlous against Miss Cassell Miss BJurstedt went after everything and there were few shots that eluded her. Occasionally, however, Mlsa in damtrln wnuld thrill the allery by send Ing a pretty placement Just within the side lines. There was no soft volleying. The great Molla sent over her terrific driven, and Mia Zlndersteln tried to emulate her, but her control ran second best Espe cially was Miss Zlndersteln prone to net when she tried to whlxx back Molla'a low bounding speed balls.

The hard driving by Mls BJur ttedt and Mrs. Weaver proved too much for Mrs. Green and Mrs. Morris. Mrs. Weaver Effective. Mrs. Green did not play as strongly as usual but this may have been due to the'way Miss BJurstedt drove the ball back at her. Mrs. Green was able to reach the ball, but could not play Mol la'a cannonball drives. Mrs. Morris also had her troubles at the net and several times Miss BJurstedt almost drove the racket out of her hand. Mrs. Weaver played her usual strong overhead game at the net and sliced oft a lot or points for her slue Dy cutting In on returns.

In tho tblrd set Miss Cassell and Thomas led at 6 S, and had set point when their opponents rallied and pulled the match out of the fire.

It to happened that three of the quar tet never bad seen the course before, the exception being Travers, who won his nrsi metropolitan title there back In I BOS.
