Never was a more complete illustration
of first class sport unappreciated than
was demonstrated by the attendance yes

Beniung spring meeting.

furnished some of the grandest sport
ever witnessed in this part of the country.
Finishes or the hair raising order and
contests that were exciting from vtart to
finish, grand thoroughbreds with the
bluest of blue blood of two continents
flowing through their veins racing their
heads off to row upon row of empty
chairs. It was uot only disheartening
to the promoters of the n eet. It was
pitiful. Bed use the management of the
club have not scattered rwe badges broad

They do not appear to recognize the fact
that ii it- to their own inteie&ts, if they
be true lovers of the sport and not mere
gjmbierb, 10 contribute their mite to tho
support of the venture. Without the en
tiuiice money It would be utterly nnpos
slble, without incurring an enoimous lOis,
to run the meeting.
While the members of the club do not
expect any large proiiUs, or for that mat

i they, or courts, hope to ureak even iinan
cially. Figuring that way, they would

standpoint, for the class of racing fur

will have a lasting effect.
The racegoers who, yesterday did not
44 co." could not have filed their com
plaint upon the grounds that the card I
furnished was not a gooo one, ior, on ine
contrarv, every event, except one, was
comTortably filled. Then, with a beautiful,
unclouded sky, a cool brcee that blew
directly across the grand stand and a fas"t
track; only one thing can account for the
slim attendance an unwillingness to pay
out the price of admission.
The ladies' clubhouse was the only place
outside of the paddock that showed anv
signs of life. This was fairly well filled
i mi t lie fcocutv deotecs or the sport and
presentcl the same gaudy picture as ou
the opening day.
The Arlingtou, a hulf mile dash for two-yeai-olds,
was the stake event of the day,
and, with twelve starters carded, promised
a good race. By post time there were four
scratches, but this lelt the rield of just
about the proper proportions for livelv
belting, a good start, and an exciting fin
ish. When the event was run the spectators
had been furnished with all three.
Successful, a colt by Octopus-Prosperity,
from the stable of R. W. Walden & Sons,
was made the choice. Some hot t"'" f
record breaking trials and midnight gallops
were clreuiateu, aim u.e ia.ei& ui o...... .
no stage of the game were willing to'ven
ture more than even money against his
chances. This price was snapped up by
those supposed to have inside information.
Of the others Kitty B. II and Lithos were
the best pluycd, going to the post at fourr.
Marsh Harrier, at 5 to 1, and Ignatius, Jr.
at t, also received considerable support,
while the balance of the field went begging
at tens and fifteens.
They were as pretty and likely a look
ing Int. of j oungsters as they skipped around
to the half-mile pole as could be found in a
week'b hunt. Lithos and Successful were
probably the best lookers of the lot, but the
latter appeared a trifle flighty. Flynu
had considerable trouble in getting them
away. Ignatius, Jr., was the worst actor
in the field, delaying thestartforsome time.
They all broke together and it looked
like a beautiful start from the stand, but
they had passed Flynn before lining up.
A couple more breaks und the famous
starter saw his chance. "Go on, boys!'"
he cried, and a flash of red bunting in
the sunlight announced that the first two
year-old stake race of the season of
189G was begun.
It was all together to the turn, where
Jimmy McLaughlin's colt. III Daddy, jump
ed to the front and essayed to make a
runaway race of it. In a twinkling he was
two lengths to the good. Lithos and Suc
cessful were neck and neck behind him,
with Marsh Barrier and Kittie B II two
lengths off and the rest trailing.
Into the stretch they came with Daddv
still out in front but beginning to tire.
Lithos and Successful were still hanging
together, with Kittie B II coming from

The othiT eveiiie lurniMied some ex

weui'iu The Swain, wan inu lirtt victory
for a favorite of the meeting. Eight to
five was the bebt obtainable against him
at any lime, while Factotum was well
played, being backed from 5 to 2 down
to 2 to 1.
Keefo carried Factotum out in true
Bill Daly style and made all the running.
He looked a winner to the last jump
where Littlefield brought The Swain up
and in a whipping finlsn landed the money
bv a scant head. Pay or Play was third
two lengihB away. Littlefield complained
to the Judges that Keere had crosbed in
front of him.
Live Oak, who started in the second race,
was the most persistently touted horse of
the day. Consequently he was backed
from even money to 3 lo 5. Be ran a
very poor race, never being up with the
leaders. Chugnut, who was played from
7 to 1 down to fours, made all the running,
and passed under hie wire in the van a
length and a half before Tomoka, with
Live Oak third.

Gibbons of Paterson, N. J., and Charles
Johnson, formerly of Minneapolis, mid now

Caledonian Club tonight. Gibbons seemed
to be flesh v and not in condition for a
hard contest.
Bis cleverness with his hands, however,
kepi Johnson from administering asserious
punishment as would otherwise have been
the result, but as it was Johnson did the
better work, and though he was unable
to put Gibbons out he was given the de

decision met with the approval of those

Manager Foutz, Capt. Griffin. Tommy Mci
Carthy, Anderson, jones, La Chance. Daly.
Bonner, Corcoran, Shindle. Shoch. Grim.
Dniley, Gumbert. Stein, Kennedy. Harper
and Payne.
It wab rather odd to Bee Tommy Mci
Curthy's nume registered under a Brooklyn
head tine on the Ebbitt's book or guests.
Arter the many years of service with
Boston, McCarthy's signature without
Duffy's following, looked like a stranger
in the Brooklyn list.
It was an ocular demonstration of the
fact that the 'Heavenly Twins" had been
separated and that the Siamese link had
at lastbeenseverd by the League magnates.
"Am I pleaded with my new arnuaiiou?
Why. to be sure," wild Tommy. "The
chnng- tias put new lire into me, if that
were possible, and I am intent on giving
the club the benefit or my best efforts. We
have a good team and will be in the bunch
nearest the wire wheu the flag falls next
The Brooklns are under the direct man
agement of Manager Dave Foutz. He
needs no introduction to readers or base
ball news. He is known by every rooter
from Maine to Caliroruia and frcm Itaska
to the Gulf.
Foutz enjoys the distinction of being the
mosi siraiKUt up and down man in the pro
fession. Those who know him best take
the liberty of calling him "Scissors," and
there are others who query him at a game
to know If his knickerbockers were not
retailored gun-barrel covers.
Dave Is not addicted to the talking habit.
He is aoout the hardest manager lu the
League to enguge In coner&ation for pub
lication. Dave said this much, however,
yesterday arternoon:
"1 conblder the Brooklyns stronger this
season tliun eAer beiore. McCarthj adds a
great dcul or strength, and I have a good
i.iiui tu jouug Joik.-. Bo'iner and Ander
son are well known, and Harper and Payne,
th" new blood pitchers, are Aery promising.
"I have no predictions to make as to
where my club will wind up. Brooklyn
always ends well, but 1 am making no
claims on the pennant, or an thing eke.
Early guesses oitcii go awry. The news
papers never consider us in the race,
noiiow, until we commence scaring the
leaders as we did toward the close oi last
two out or three on their own grounds and
hope to be as fortunate against ttie Sena
tors m the series commencing tomorrow.
"The Baltimores are weakened by the
absence or McUraw, and from what 1 hae
learned of his condition I doubt Aery
seriously whether he will get in good form
attain inis year. I hope he will regalu
his health. His retirement would be an
Irrrparablc loss not only to the Orioles
but to the game generally.
"I have heard splendid reports of the
Senators under Joyce's management. It
is my experience In years devoted to the
game that the players of a club do better
work under an active, playing manager
than a bench director who has no practical
experience to assist him in handling his
"A bench manager cannot possibly
possess a knowledge of the game equal to
the one who has played all its points.
For Instance, a bench manager cunnot
understand why a player will strike out
or make errors at times like one who
has been through tre mill. Again, he is
apt to be too critical, and therefore does not
possess the sympathy with his men like
a Tello w player who has them in charge.
"Joyce is a magnetic fellow, and though
I haven't seen the Senators in play I said
on hearing or their two victories over New
York that "Scrappy' had his men well
in hand and was pushing them along.''
Mercer and McGuire. or McCauley, will
ber the battery for the Senators this after
noon. 8tein and Grim will be in the
points for the visitors.
Crooks has not improved to the extent
ofallowiug him to play and It is not prob
buble that he will be able to resume his
position at second for several days.
Jack's trouble with his back ts more
serious than was first thought and It will
require rest and time to bring about a
complete recovery.
Tnough the king is missed from the
middle cushion and the territory sur
rounding, in Jimmy Rogers the Senators
have an able substitute. Jimmy got
acquainted with playing the bag during
the New York series and can be depended
on to make a Crooks' showing against
the Bridegrooms.
It being Tuesday, ladles holding cards
will be admitted Tree of charge and as
a meaus of further entertainment ror his
fair guests, Mr. Wagner has engaged a
first-class baud, wnich will reuuer a
concert before the game.
