An unidentified white woman, about thirty years old, was taken to the Casualty Hospital about 1 o'clock today by the police of the ninth precinct from Schott's alley, and upon examination at the hospital the physicians found that she had been stabbed several times about the face and body.

BETTING- RING LIVELY ONLY TWO EVENTS FURNISH REAL GOOD SPORT. Red Damsel Wins First Race, Time, 1.1G??; Unterock Second; Mary Worth Third. .S.wrial Dispatch to The Evening S.ar. BENNING RACK TRACK, D. C? Decem ber 3.?With improved weather conditions and the end of the fall meeting at Benning but three days off, the attendance improved very perceptibly today. The increase was particularly noticeable in the belting ring, where the line of book makers has contracted to such an extent as to make the playing of wagers quite a task. The card today is of the ordinary sort, the fourth and sixth races furnishing the best sport. The track was dry and fast. Following are the scratches bulletined at 1:45 p.m.: In the first, Burning Glass. In the second, Henry Clay Rye. First Race. First race, six furlongs?Red Damsel (Redfern). 3 and even, first; Unterock (Wonderly), 5 and 2, second; Mary Worth (Desouza), 60 and 20, third. Time, 1.10 3-5. Worry got into the lead at the break and hung on until the stretch, when Red Dam sel came through, winning handily by two lengths. Second Race. Second race, seven furlongs?Bon Mot (Miles), 3 and 6 to 5, first; All Gold (Red fern), 4 and 8 to 5, second; Locket (K. Walsh), 5 and 2, third. Time, 1:29. Bon Mot got oft first, and led all the way with open daylight, and won by three lengths. Snowing at the Track. Racing was attended yesterday by many of the outward aspects of the old days on the outlaw tracks, snow falling lightly al most all afternoon. It was not heavy enough to cause inconvenience, but madt many of the regular race followers long fof New Orleans and San Francisco. The rac ing nevertheless, was keenly contested, the Benning special affording a thrilling struggle between the three placed horses. Tribes Hill, Trepan and Colonsay. The last mentioned had the worst position, wedged in as he was between Trepan on the right and Tribes Hill on the left, and it is possible that this affected the result, for Michaels, his rider, was all on one side of Colonsay as the three struggling racers passed the judge's stand, each one-half a length apart. Tribes Hill was allowed to set the pace, which suited him exactly and he was in fine form for the bruising finish. One year ago Tribes Hill was sold for $100 and is now owned by W. R. Midgely. Rough Rider's Victory. When Rough Rider won the last race the victory was extremely popular, a majority of the women In the grand stand betting on him to win. The old horse'was much the best, for he literally fought his way from last to first place, though he nearly fell on the first turn and lost many lengths. Rough Rider made a short turn Into the stretch, got through next the rail and won like a four-mile race horse. Rough Rider's tiny jockey, Crimmins, is under contract to P. H Sullivan and will be sent to New Orleans to be taught all that "Archie" Zlrainer and Fuller can show him about riding. The boy is declared to be one of the best of Ills age and experience that has yet shown up at this meeting. It was Crimmins who rode Oclawaha a few days ago and made Red fern do his best to win with Nine Spot. Gossip of the Paddock. William Hueston has sold to N. Dyment, a Canadian turfman, the two-year-old colt Fort Hunter for a price said to be $3,500. Hueeton paid only a few hundred dollars for this colt at the weeding out of John Sanford's stable, two months ago. Friends of Representative T. D. Sullivan say that he has lost $15,000 in three days at this meeting. Of this amount $2,000 was bet on Carbuncle when Wire In won. In discussing the bad race run by Lord of the Valley, a prominent official said that he was by no means certain that the colt was anything like as good a racer as he was estimated at. Still, there Is a lot of In and-out running at this meeting, and little or no notice Is taken of it.' Daly's stable, as usual, is the most flagrant offender. Summaries.

His Friends and Family Alarmed at His Condition. Judge William M. Springer, former rep resentative in Congress from Illinois, is seriously 111 at Ills home, 43 B street south east. Judge Springer? la suffering from pneumonia, and is presumed to be just now at the crisis of the distfa^e. He barely pulled through last night, and fears are entertained as to his ultimate recovery. He is slightly better todfiyp^nd the doctors say that if he lives through the next two days his chances will be' comparatively bright. His friends and family, however, are highly alarmed over his. condition. Judge Springer has been, 111 for a week. He was In Chicago ten days ago, attend ing to the drainage canal suits In that city. He contracted a 1)^9; cold and com plained of feeling ill. His friends sent for medical assistance and wanted to put him to bed. Judge Springer, Jrowever, insisted that he should come 011 to "fiis home In tills city, and arrived herff in a precarious con dition. His family, consisting of Mrs. Springer and a son. Chaplain R. W. Sprin ger of the Artillery Corj>?, are with him. Judge Springer was In Congress for twen ty years, serving continuously from 1S75 to 188fi. He was then appointed justice of the supreme court of the Indian territory, and served In that capacity for four years. Since his retirement from the bench he has practiced law, principally in this city. Third Term Candidates. To the Editor of The ETening Star: In your leading editoral in Friday's issue, anent Mr. Cleveland's experience with the presidency, you say: "Besides there was the temptation to break the record. Xo man had ever been nominated three times for the presidency." Are you not In error? John Adams was voted for in each of the first four elections, being elected only in the third in 1790. Thomas Jefferaos received QS votes in 1796 as the candidate of the republican (now democratic) party, but was defeated by Adams, who received 71 votes. He was again a candidate in 1800 and 1804 and elected. John Quincy Adams received one electoral vote in 1820, 84 votes in 1824 and 83 in 1828, being elected in 1824 by the House of Repre sentatives. Of course, in the above Instances party lines were not drawn as now, but each was a presidential candidate. More to the point, however. Is the case of Andrew Jackson, who was an unsuccessful candidate in 1824, when he received 90 votes in the electoral college, but was defeated in the House. He was the successful candi date four and eight years later, in 1828 and 1832. Martin Van Buren was elected President in 1836 and defeated for re-election in 1840, both times running as a democrat, the lat ter time receiving 60 votes in the electoral college. He was again defeated in 1848, when as the free soil candidate he did not receive an electoral vote. Mr. Cleveland's record is unique In that his three nominations resulted In an elec tion, a defeat and election, respectively, but not in the number of his candidacies. N. E. WEBSTER, JR.

Unlawful Sale of Intoxicants and Gam ing Table Developed. Lieut. Daley and Sergt. Hartman, with a s<juad of policemen from the ninth pre cinct, visited the Bennlng race track yes terday morning before the races began and went to that section of the inciosure where the kitchens are located. One of the kitch ens, which was presided over by Mitchell Walters, colored, sixty-one years old, was the first place visited by the officers, and Walters was found to be dispensing Intoxi cants to several race track employes.

When the casef were called in the Police Court today Walters pleaded guilty to the charge, and, on recommendation of Prose cutor Pugh he paid the lowest fine of $230, imposed on him by Judge Kimball. Dan iels failed to answer to his name when It was called, and the $25 which he left at the station house for his appearance In court was declared to be forfeited. Young Men's Bepublican Club Meeting. There was a meeting of the Young Men's Republican Club of the District of Columbia at its headauarters last night. Charles S. Billings delivered the Invocation, James A. Poe, Jr., presided and Frederick Harris and Harry Lancaster served as secretaries.

The badge bears the portrait of Abraham Lin coln on a metal medallion plate. After a report from the financial secre tary and treasurer the club decided to at tend In a body the installation meeting of the Lincoln Republican National league January 5. 1904, and it whs agreed to send a committee to accompany the league del egation to the White House to call on the President the 8th instant. The club fixed its age limit for admittance to membership from eighteen to thirty-five years. A resolution attaching the club aa an auxiliary of the Lincoln Republican Na tional League was unanimously agreed to. Father John's* Medicine ?
