The night sessions have undoubtedly made a great hit and will likely be continued at future state fairs. The feature of the day wrf the sensational racing, and the strenuous effort on the part of the Judges to give patrons of the fair honest racing. It had been fixed, it Is alleged, to have Nlcholls win-the 2:14 pace, and the The Veteran There. driver of Daisy Elder was taken off and fined for not driving to win. The race was eventually won by Joe Rea, thus knocking out the job. A feature was the baby show In the afternoon, with forty-seven cherubs facing the Judges. A large and thoroughly Interested crowd witnessed this function, which was ably directed by Colonel C. R. Tracy. To-day Is one of the big days of the fair, and the special feature before the harness races, Is the grand cake walk, *fo# which there are a number, of entries, Including the best walkers of Wheeling and surroundlhg cities. SENSATIONAL RACING Was the Big Featuro of tho State mir Tuesday Aiternon?xne x:i<k Pace Alleged to Havo Been Jobbod. Driver Fined $50 by tlio Judges. Sensational were the developments connected with the first day's racing at the West Virginia State Fair Tuesday afternoon. The first race was the 2:14 pace, and among the horsea entered was Daisy Elder, ft little grey entered on the score card as the horse of A. S. Byersley, of South Solon, Ohio. I3yersv Ipy, however, does not seem to figure In the story, and Is not here. Daisy finished last In the first heat, fourth In the second and third In the third?a performance that did not satisfy the Judges, who, at this point, determined to take down her driver, Hedrlck, and substituted another named Collins. Collins sent the mare to first place In the fourth heat and second In the fifth heat. Here, still another driver, Al. Rogers, was put up, and ho sent her to firnl place In the sixth heat, second In the seventh and third In the eighth. After the race, thu Judges announced that they were convinced that the mare nad not been driven to win In the first SK^QJfir 51 Virginia State Fair Was ge Attendance Figures. AND FOR HONEST RACING om Daisy Elder and Fining One /Been Fixed for Nichollsto Win is One of Tuesday's Attractive Vas a Bridgeport Lad, Master ion Was Attended by a Large I Card is Presented for This three heats, and gave Hedrlck a fine of *50. After the fifth heat, the judges took the horse out of the hands of her owner ?or one of her owners?and placed Policeman Shields on guard at the entrance of her stall to see that nothing was done to the horse. There was quite a row raised over this development, and 200 or 300 people were attracted to the scene, brought by a cry of fight," raised by some one. There was no fight, but it developed that Daisy Elder's hobbles had been stolen, nnd after an Investigation Officer Shields found them In an adjoining stall. Just who Is Daisy Elder's owner seems not to be known. Mrs. Lucy Bnyne, of Columbus, was said to be her owner, and the fact that she was betting heavily against Daisy Elder In the pools was elted to the Judges as an Indication that the horse was not being driven to win. After the seventh heat, some of the people Interested In Daisy Elder protested to the judges that Driver Rogers had Injured the mare on one of her fore legs, and wanted to draw her out, but this request was refused by the judges, nnd Daisy was driven In the eighth heat, but could only take third position. The occurrence is rpgrettable, but It can be seen that the officials made ev ery enort possible In behalf of honest racing, and for this they deserve 'the commendation of the patrons of the fair who, of course, are unanimous for honest sport. The second race on the programme was the 2:30 trot, with a field of thirteen starters, but Quetzsl showed his superiority in straight heats. In the third event, too, the win was made in straight heats by Improve, the favorite. The races in detail were as fellows: 2:14 Pace. First heat?They were off after several ineffectual efforts, with Jessie L., Daisy L. and Joe Rea fighting for the lead, which was finally captured by the first named horse. On the back stretch at the three-quarter hole, Daisy Elder was put out of It, her wheel coming Into collision with Jessie L. with disastrous results for the former. Jessie took first place and Gladys second. Time, 2:15%. Second heat?Jessie L. went out in the lead, four lengths to the good at the quarter, with the Held stretched out In an ever lengthening row to the rear. At the upper turn, Jessie's lead?cut down materially by Nlcholl, and at the half Jessie Is only a length to the good. On the lower turn Nlcholl comes up with such surprising quickness and goes into the lead so easily that there are cries of "fake" from the stands. On the upper turn Nlcholl Is leading by two lengths and she wins easily, though Jessie L. is driven for keeps down to the wire and compels McMuhon to lay on the whip. There was a long delay before the result was announced, and when starter Barnard unnounced that all bets on the heat were declared off and that Jessie L. was fined 525, there was general applause from the spoctai tors and entire satisfaction in the betting ring. The time was 2:15%. Third heat?This was the prettiest race of the afternoon, and aroused some enthusiasm. Nlcholl. the pole horse, went out In the lend, with the other gray, Daisy Elder coming hard. Jessie L. went Into a break at the start and was out of It, being distanced, so her win of the first heat counted for nothing. At ttye half Nlcholl was still leading, Daisy Elder sccond, and Joe Rea a close third. On the back stretch, Nlcholl was still leading, with Daisy Elder and Joe Ilea on even terms right at his heels. Elder was on the outside and held Joe Ren pocketed until the home rurei.cn was eniereu, wncn ins ukick Keldlnp sot out and gave Nlcholl n race for his life, the latter winning by only a head. Elder was driven hard at the finish and was third, a half length back of Joe Ilea. It was n beautiful race, but Trould have been a win for Joe Rea If he had been aide to unpocket himself earlier In the game. Time, 2:14V~. Fourth heat?Nlcholl. the pole horse, went out to the front, but In the back stretch Joe Rea came up, wrested the lead from the grey gelding, and was a length to the good. On the upper turn Nlcholl was going like clock-work and had overtaken Joe Rea. At the half Nlcholl was leading by a length. On the lower turn Joe Rea took a balloon ascension and Daisy Elder, the favorite, took up the running with Nlcholl. Soon Daisy was on even terms, nnd the two greys figured Ir. a desperate contest.of speed to delight of the crowd, which enthused to beat the band. They finished almost In a dead heat, but palsy, was a nose to the good and Nlcholl had failed string of two. Ron was a close third. The tlmo, 2:14%, was the fastest of the afternoon. Fifth heat?Excitement was added to the race In this heat by a now horse coming In with n win of the heat. Joe Ilea went Into the lead on the back stretch, with Daisy Elder a length to the bad, and Nlcholl close up. At the half Elder and Ilea were on even ternin, Nlcholl two lengths bnck In third position. On the back stretch the two leaders wore still even up, with Nlcholl pocketed close up. In the homy-stretch there was a great battle on between Daisy Elder atfd Joe Ilea, and the latter outfooted the grey to the extent of two heads. Nlcholl finished third, by two lengths. Time, 2:1-1%. Sixth boat?It was a fight between the two greys, Daisy Elder and Nlcholl, as Joe Rea. the winner of the fifth heat, went up'In the air on the lower turn nnd was out of It almost at the start. At the half the two Kreys were neck an?l neck, Nlcholl to the good, but he lost the advantage on the lower turn, Elder going a length to the good. On the bark stretch Nlcholl was hanging to Elder's wheel. In the home- i stretch, Elder was held up and finished but half a length ahead. Time, 2:lS^i, the fastest of the race. Seventh heat?Joe Ron assumed the j lead, with Jessie L. second, and the two V greys, Daisy Elder and Nlcholl. back two lengths. At the half Jessie L. hail slightly the advantage over Joe Ilea. In the back stretch, Daisy Eldsr came up In a great burst of'speed and was soon on even terms with Ren. Jessie L. having dropped back. In the stretch. Joe Rea led Daisy Elder a length, 'arid at the wire Joe was the winner, Daisy second in a whipping finish. Time, 2:15^. Eighth heat?The eighth und Ann! heat, was not on until 7:15 p. m., and was run with electric light accompaniment. As detailed above, It was delayed by the Daisy Elder controversy. Joe Rea had the pole and the four got away after twice scoring unsuccessfully. At the half mile Daisy Elder was slightly In the lead, Daisy on the outside. Jessie L. was four lengths In the rear and NIcholls as fnr back of Jessie. "Ten to one Joe Rea wins." yelled a big lunged spectator, as Joe took the lead from Daisy on the upper turn, and there were no takers. Coming Into the stretch Joe was half a length to the good and he maintained to tho ire, Jessie L. comlmr un lr u. burst of speed and taking: second place , from Daisy Elder, while Nlcholls fin- ' lshed fourth far In the rear. There was a long wait while the Judges con- ; sJdered the several Interesting "outside" features that had entered Into this race, and finally the result was 1 handed to Starter Barnard, who an- i nounced that the money was divided as follows: First, Joe Rea; second, : Daisy Elder; third, Nlcholls; fourth. Jessie L. It was further announced that the judges were convinced that > the driver of Daisy Elder had not ' driven to win In the first three heats and that a $50 line had been Inlllcted upon him.

Second heat?Half an hour was required In getting a start, but finally a reprimand from Barnard and the Judicious use of the lining power brought them up to the wire In something not quite resembling an endless chain, and they were olt, with Belle Onward far In the rear and out of It from start to finish. Quetzel, the pole horse, went out In the lead and*held It at the half with Slmmontella and Burgess close up. In the last half Slmmontella gave battle to the leader, but It was a losing game and the big mare gave It up and retrograded down the line at a negative speed that would have been.a winner if reversed. Burgess was the next to give Quetzel a whirl, sind ho made it decidedly Interesting at the finish, coming In second to Quetzel In a bunch of four that could have been covered with a horse blanket, and of which the other two were Annie Trevlllan In third place and William Long fourth. The best Slmmontella could get was sixth. ! with Mercury fifth. Time, 2:22U? the same as tho first heat. , Third heat?There was another seance at scoring Justine fifteen or twenty minutes.

I Three -Thousand People "Were Attracted to tlio Grounds Last Night. The second night session of the State fair was attended by over three thousand people and nine-tenths of them were citizens who could not possibly have taken advantage of an opportunity to see the big show during the day. which fact bears out the assertion that night sessions are essentially a necessity If the desire of the majority of the citizens Is considered. Thousands of working men in Greater Wheeling are unable to leave their posts of duty to attend the fair during the day, and the evening attractions are suillclcnt to make them feel that they are at least considered in the dispensation of n general good time. It was a Jovial crowd that gathered In and about the grand siand. and the programme was an attractive one, thoroughly appreciated by everybody present.
