ir THE REPUBLIC: MONDAY SJEaPTTESOBHaE 7. 1903. ATTRACTIVE CARD AT DELMAR AC ES. Each Itace Presents a Horse That Seems to Hold His Field Safe. STAKE RACE IS THE HARDEST. eT Jordan Should Win on Form, but Helen Print and W. B. Gates Likely to Improve and Spill the Beans. Mr. ilaginn preer.H to holiday race goers a mort attractive card at Delmar to-Jay. The bf"t liore stand out well in each race, and hould !n. Elntein. a Rood old horse, look well these das. and ha been running suc cessfully In small meetings in the Wl. He Is a nice hore when right, and will not be eav to dipoi of in the first event. Branch II, howevr. ran a splendid race S& to Saturday under great difficulties. j El Caney is liable o go well when fresh. Model Monarch I in good flesh now. and looks like a fair kind of colt. Branch II. on his race Saturday, seems to be the best bet in this first event. He should come back with a better one this afternoon. Th second seems to be Irene Mack's leather. She likes the weight and Is the class. She should roll In Blue Grafs Girl is good now and Is clearly the contender. hut Irene vents to be in a soft spot. St. Noel should corns right back with his last race In the third event and win. He has beaten Ingolthrift. who seems next best here. .VotI has speed and Is good. H should win If he gets off well. They say that W. P. Palmer has worked good enough to beat him or any other colt at BJ- t-?"l- He has yet to prove this kthd of ability. If Jordan runs truly, he should win the Labor Day Handicap. He seems to hold .'Helen Print. W. B. Gates and Eva G. safe l,t the weights, and It really appears that ie should beat Dava Sommers. At that, Helen Print has not been running her races. She has been showing anything but her true early speed. If she steps out as lhe ought to. nd as she has not been stepping, she should win. JORDAN MAT WIN. On her recent form, however, Jordan can lat her It is Just the place the shrewd and fortunate J. K. Hughes would win with Pourquoi Pas. Her races would lead one to imagine that Mr. Hughes has been having this stake In mind and that he is slowly getting ready to set her down for the glue. ir the Hughes Ally is a price, a to bill to windward might not kill any one. Have a lookout for W. B. Gates. This old fellow has been feinting for an opening at a long price for the last month. He Is very He ran the last rnlf of his mile behind Firm Mason at Kinloch in S3 flat, with much more weight up than he carries to-day. Captain Rice scratched him because of lameness last Thursday. All In all. it siS, a, imes would amble home ,iz. :"-.." "" ' mere are sitmmcant vauuiii mat airecuon. Itor of The Republic was one of thousands who were of the incontrovertible belief that Dale puUed Elastic To that time, and with that exception, the sporting ed itor always believed that Dale never "took" a horse. His belief In Dale's culpability existed until Friday. Then, looking upon the last three races run by Light Opera, the sporting editor feels It Incumbent upon him to apologize to Jockev Dale. With those three races look ing bl"m In the face, he cannot any longer believe that Dale pulled Elastic. Chris Schawacker, a good fellow on whom horsemen live, pulled oft the form reversal of the season with Atlas on Thursday last. Mr. Schawacker was not on the ground, however. On Monday he vlMted West Baden Springs, where they can bet a "leetle the horses on." "I go to take a rest," said Mr. Schaw acker "I leave Tommy Proctor with the stable In charge. Tommy is & nice boy,, but he Is young mlt the blsness and I get Et Maglnn to tell him where to "put" and an tnat stun. - It was all right. Tommy Proctor may be In tbe business oung and all that, and not know where to "put," but he "put" about forty pounds Improvement on Atlas ovemlaht. all right, all right. Mr. Schaw acker was not on hand to bet on his filly, but If lie has a little bet on at West Baden who can blame nlm? He has as much right to get (t that way as any one ele. It ma be just as right as going out with a can of nitroglycerin and a drill, and ever fo much less dangerous. To-Day Krnilwortb Entries. Buflali. N Y . Sept. 4.

St. Louis Grew, With Qnickened Stroke, Come Bow to Bow With the Cen tury s. Taking the lead at the start, the Cen tury Club won the Faust Cup from the Westerns and the St. Louis crew yester day In the local harbor, these three being the only crews that contested. The SL Louis barge was second, with the West erns third by a close margin. The barges lined up at the foot of Pine street and after considerable delay the Centurys got off first and held it till the finish line was reached. The Westerns were the last to get off. They .claimed, however, that this was be cause the boy who was in the stake boat holding their barge in position until the starting; signal should be given held to their boat after the flag bad been dropped, thereby the Westerns losing about two strokes. They crossed the St. Louis barge about a mile downstream, but with a slower stroke were crossed after a short while by the wearers of the red and blue. The Centurys rowed about the same stroke through the entire course, and at the finish seemed as though they were not rowing in a race and crossed the line al most pulled up. They led by about two and one-half lengths The SL Louis barge was about the same distance ahead of the Westerns. Before the boats had reached the finish line the buoy near the Missouri shore had floated downstream about fifty feet, and when the SL Louis barge crossed the line they wanted to protest the race, but the several Judges, including the Westerns' representative, stationed at the Century hoathouse. had agreed upon a line from the buoy near the Illinois shore and the boathouse. As this was done before any of the boats had crossed the line, the SL Louis crew could not protest the race. THREE MILES IN H MINUTES. The time consumed In making the race from Pine street to the Century boat house, at the foot of Cherokee street, which is three miles, was fourteen min utes and five seconds. This time is con sidered good, as the river was not in the best of rowing condition. Many followers of the rowing game were surprised at the poor showing made by the Western crew, they being carded to finish second at leasL The loss of strokes at the start and not rowing the regular crew are the main reasons given for their defeat. Referee Jule Froman considered the race a good one. stating that the crews did not attempt to leave their respective The crews of the North End, Mound City and Central rowing clubs were to have entered, but failed to get the men to practice. The Faust trophy Is a handsome cup. donated ty A. Faust, and the several local crews are to race for it each jear. any one club winning the cup three consecu tive season being entitled to ownership. This is the second cup donated by Mr. Faust, the former trophy being won by the Westerns. Although the Centurys won. they were closely pressed by the St. Louis barge near the mile-and-a-half boaL The Cen turys were rowine a comparatively slow stroke, while the red and blue wearers' were rowing as high as forty strokes a minute. The course was carefully measured to al low for bends and crooks in the river. The start and finish lines were parallel to each otner.

Taylor, Director of Works of the World's Fair, said yesterday that the St. Louis Exposition will have the finest system of roads ever placed in the grounds of an international exposition. They will be modem in every respect, and as near perfect as the science of road building can make them. According to the plans, there will be different road con struction on different parts of the grounds, the selection being made to conform to the general picture and needs of each local ity. As a whole, the road sstem will be di vided into three classes of construction asphalt, macadam and burned clay bal last. The treatment of these materlls will vary somewhat at different points, and In Beveral sections trimmings of red granite will be Introduced for purposes of ornamentation.

But there Is a strong probability that "Waterboy win not start. By wlnnlnr the Century Stakes at Sheepshead Bay SatOTday, Waterboy will nave to take up 14 pounds In ths handi- cap, and whether or sot bis twiner will fit raters Cup. permit the Watercress colt to shoulder this Impost, which would be by tar the most onerous task he has ever under taken. Is a question. McChesney is a sure starter In the Twin City, and there is but little doubt but that Africander, the champion 3-year-old. win go. In addition to these. Hermls is a possibility. Caughnawaga. with 111 pounds, and Sheriff Bell, with the light impost of-S2. together with Injunction and Short Hose, each of whom will carry only 1(3 pounds, would place Waterboy at a disadvantage he has never yet encountered, and the turf wiseacres to-night say that Mr. Hag gin will never permit his horse to go the distance under such a. weight. To be able to win the time-honored Twin City Stake with 134 pounds up would stamp Waterboy as the undisputed champion, and he could then retire from tne tun with a reputation wnicn would relegate Into oblivion his defeat In the problems which we have met In the course of building the Exposition. At previous expositions there were so many com plaints of the road systems that we de cided to leave nothing undone to have our roads as perfect as possible. "The matter has been carefully studied by myself. Mr. Kessler. the landscape offi cial.and other members of the Department of Works. Our investigations lead us to believe that asphalt Is the best material for the chief roadways and spaces at the entrances and leading to portals of the big exhibit palaces. "Along the River des Peres, around the Palace of Electricity, the Education build ing and spaces leading to all the main buildings, also spaces at the ends of the lagoons, asphalt has been laid. So far It has given perfect satisfaction, and we be lieve it will continue to do so throughout the Exposition period. "A satisfactory contract was made for this construction, it was put down at a reasonable price, and the contractor keeps It In repair. This lifts great expense andi trouble from the Department of Works None of the theoretical objections to as phalt can be urged against these road The work is well done and serves every requir.ment. "A large part of the roads will be con structed of burnt clay ballast. This ma terial Is a brick, made of a clay which burns hard, and does not mash into light dust, as is the case with bricks made from clav found around SL Louis. Thl material i red and will harmonize beau tifully with the green along the road- "I believe roadR built with it will be the most satisfactory in many cesnects. on the grounds. The burned brick Is crushed and the larger pieces laid on firsL On top of this layer the finer material is spread, then rolled with steam rollers of great weishL It then becomes compact and is noj rendered sloppy or muddy by rain. "In addition, there will be considerable macadam construction. This class of roads, however, will be put down with the greatest care, so as to overcome, as far as possible. th undesirable features of the material. The coarser material will be laid first, and the top dressed with the fine-. TWEXTT-FIVE MILES OF ROADS. "The secret of good roads, no matter of what material constructed. Is to continu ally work them. The repair of roads is as essential to tneir efficiency as the pri mary construction. This detail will be carefully observed on all World's Fair roads. Throughout the Exposition period gangs will be assigned to do nothing but work the roads, repairing any defect the day it Is discovered. "I should judge that within the grounds there will be at least twenty-five miles of roads, exclusive of the paths and walks through the woods and landscape garden ing. At Chicago the roadways were prin cipally of macadam, and they were un satisfactory. The glare of the sun on them was annoying, and on a windy day the dust was terrible. "Women who attended the Buffalo Ex position have not gotten over talking of ruined gowns, caused by the poor quality of asphalt roadways. There the asphalt was laid on frozen ground, with the result that when It got hot the hard earth be came mud, the asphalt bulged and broke and made a sloppy, dirty mixture, which was v great drawbick to the cipoaltixm." The most successful picnic and barbe cue in the history of the St. Louis Retail Butchers" Union wa given esterday at the Fair Grounds. Thirty-seven thousand and eight hundred persons passed the turnstiles and enjoyed the games and baked meats, of which there was an abun dance. It was the seventeenth annual event of the union, and marked the advent of the all-day Sunday elos'ng In SL Louis, which the memter of the union have been striving to put in operation for some time past. Prior to the entertainment on the grounds the members of the union pa raded the strets. Their showing was very pretty and stretched as far as the ye could see. The parade started from Sou lard Market advancing up Broadway to Franklin avenue, thence west to EilioL north to St. Louis avenue, west to Grand avenue, thence north, breaking ranks at the gates of the Fair Grounds. In the parade were 1.3M men. represent ing almost the full membership of the Batchers' Union. Seven hundred and fif ty were mounted and garbed In white linen coats and gray Fedora hats. The rest of the organization rode In carriages. The paraders marched under the direction of Grand Marshal William Hertllng. Jr. John Nix. Michael Schaller and Oscar J. Breuning acted as aides to the grand marshal. FEAST ON ROASTED MEAT. After the parade the members, their families and friends hastened to the grounds where the barbecued meats were prepared for consumption. Enough sides of beef were prepared during the day to feed twice the crowd that attended. There was an ample supply of lamb and other meats as well. The meats were roasted over a long trench, the heat sup plied by burning charcoal several feet be low the splckets upon which the meats were suspended. It being the first real barbecue the butchers nave given since 185. the roast ing process was watched with consider able interesL A dozen men were kept busy during the day carving the meats and thousands of loaves of bread Into sandwiches. Although there was considerable excite ment In the amphitheater during the en tire day. caused by the racing events, there were no serious accidents. Bernhardt G. Drape, treasurer of the union, was knocked senseless by being run down by a .rig. but recuperated In a short time. The wheel of the swiftly mov ing vehicle passed over Drape's head, tak ing off the hair as closely as If it had been shaved by-a. keen razor. OFFICERS OF THE UNION.

REPUBLIC SPECIAL Joplin. Mo.. Sept. S. The advent of a purchasing agent for a new smelter in the market has not changed the prices any this week, but it is expected that it will within a very few weeks. The La. Harpe Spelter Company will start the first block of its new smelter at La Harpe. Ka.. next week, followed in ten days by another block, and by the first of October it Is expected that the full smelter of three blocks will be In operation. George Braun of Galena is president, general manager and purchasing agent of this company. He Is an old smelter man. and has had experience in ore buying tor sev eral j ears. The demands of this new smelter, to gether with the restarting cf additional blocks of two other smelters, increase the demand proportionately greater than the output is increasing. Unless the Western ore situation eases up. this greater demand will place a premium upon the present prices of zinc ore in the Joplin district. The highest price paid during tbe week was $40 per ton for several bins of the choicest ore. and the assay basis continues strong at JiS to $37 per ten of 60-per-cent zinc Lead is steady at JS4 per ton. A j ear ago lead brought J43 and zinc $39.50 per ton for tne choicest lot. The zinc shipment the last week shows an increase of 305 tons, the lead shipment a decrease of IS and the value an Increase of $3,350 over tbe Drevioua week. The ship ment is 537 tons of zinc larger. XS3 tons of lead less and the value $21,413 greater than the same week a year ago.
