GRAND OPENING OF THE FALL RACE MEETING First Day Affords Some Excellent Sport IK Of 1 FAVORITES ill The Los Angeles Derby Captured by Grady A CLOSE, HARD FINISH Jasper Ayera and Jennie Mc, Carry Oil the Day's Honors Certsi■ Wins the Maiden's Plate After s Very Close Finish The t:to Pace and the 2:14 Trot the Great Features—The Agricultur al Exhibits as Usual Be hind Their Time. Perfect weather favored the opening day of the District Agricultural asso ciation's raise meeting yesterday. All the conditions were propitious, the track being in excellent shape for fast time. Certainly the outlook for a very successful meeting feems bright indeed. The attendance alone was nJk what it Should have been, the grand stand not being half filled. A goodly number of fashionable equipages, however, lined the rails and "society" was well repre sented. An exceptionally attractive card was offered for the fnitial day and some excellent racing was witnessed. The victory of Jasper Ayres, an old fa vorite, n the 2:14 trot was very popular, though Mamie Griffin from the first found many admirers, whom after her first splendid showing she sadly disap pointed. The first heat of this race proved to be the finest struggle of the day, many believing it to have resulted in a dead heat and the issue lying in doubt until the judges made- their deci sion. As the dusk descended upon the track, when a large proportion of the spectators had wended their way home, the Perkins' gelding finally asserted his supremacy. Jennie Mc, ahandaomebay filly, had things ail her own way in the 2:20 pace. Mr. Durfee has in her.a very likely youngster. The single exhibition of the Australian "gate" did not prove as great a success as anticipated, the horses being nervous of the apparent obstacle. No doubt, when they become Inured to the novelty, its ingenuity and economy of time and patience will be appreciated. The Los Angeles Derby went to the favorite, but a very likely horse from the Santa Anita stables,Ales saldio. was badly left from the start, and considering the amount of ground he picked up, would certainly have proved dangerous under other conditions. Cor dova captured the maiden plate at six furlongs and was very cleverly ridden. The sole attention of visitors yester- : flay was devoted to the racing, the usual i attachments not being In evidence. The arrangements on the whole were excel lent and the card was dispatched with praiseworthy promptitude, Senator Rose manipulating the bell and insuring a rapid succession of Interest. The only complaint audible was from the press box; totally inadequate accommoda tion is furnished those who have duties to perform and are severely handicap ped tn their performance fiorn lack of elbow room. There were at least eight or nine representatives of newspapers present but there were only Aye chairs in the press box and a very uncomfort able squeeze at that. Today will be ladles' day, all the gen tler sex being welcomed without admis sion fee. An interesting card is pre- j pared, two running and two gentle- i men's road races. For all four events | large fields are entered and keen compe- i tit ion is expected. The excellence of the I program should insure a large, attend- j ance. The officials yesterday were: Judges, Senator L. J. Rose, Capt. J. C. Newton **4'C«j>t. George nines; timekeepers, | v" : '1m I f ' If» i : i , N. Covarrublas, E, P. Glfford and H. McGregor. FIHST RACE. The first race on the card was the Los Angeles Derby, sweepstakes, for 3-year olds, one mile. Prince Hooker and Miss Pollard were scratched. The entries were Emma R., Ales-saldlo, Don Pio Pico, Rebellion and Gra'sT'. The field seemed distinctly shy of the starting "gate," which was tried for the first time on a Southern California racing track, and only a poor start was the result, Ales saldlo being left at the post. Don Pio Pico at once made the running, leading to the half, Grady and Rebellion In close attendance. Coming into the straight a fine race ensued between Grady and Rebellion, Grady holding his own to the finish, win ning by a neck. A couple of lengths sep arated Rebellion and Don Pio Pico. Emma R. finished fourth. Atessatdio fifth. Time. 1:43*4. The betting on the race was light, Grady selling favorite at $10 and the field at IS. SECOND RACE. The second race, maiden plate, six furlongs for 2-year-olds, brought out a full field. There was some lively specu lation on this race, the field selling fa vorite, EI Venado and Cordova finding many friends. A better start was ef fected than under the Australian gate. Mlnta Owen forged ahead, which posi tion she held to the straight, when Web ber brought Cordova to the front and won very handily by a half length from Sharon Lass, Valdos finishing third. The time was 1:16%. At the quarters 24 and 51%. 2:20 CLASS. The next event was the 2:20 class, pac ing, best three In five heats. The entries were George R.. May Nutford.

Durfee's filly was closely fol lowed by George R. with a strung out field. Coming in to the straight George R. broke, repeating the performance half way down. Jennie Me. won very easily. Beachwood second, San Luislto third and George R. having to be content THE START OF THE DERBY with fourth honors. The time was 2:15. At the quarter 33 and at theh alf 1:05%. 2:14 TROT.

I»e r :plte the fact that exhibitors were urged to have their exhibits In place by the opening day, there was the usual de lay, and the pavilion presented a scene of chaos, but very few of the displays being in place. This, it is believed, will be remedied today, by which time It is thought that most of the exhbits will be |in place. The pavilion is in charge of | Capt. Frank A. Blake, who has had the j building beautifully decorated, and cv- I erythlng Is in readiness for the exhibit era when they corns In. IN SOCIETY A very pretty but quiet home wedding occurred yesterday evening at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Daniel Desmond, when their daughter. Miss May Desmond, was united In marriage to Mr. Alexander M Shields, by the Impressive Catholic cere mony. The house was most effectively decorated in quantities of green and pretty flowers. In the drawing-room, where the service took place, were cos mos and pink roses. A tennis net inter woven with smilax and dainty blossoms was gracefully draped in the bay win dow. In the background were potted plants and ferns. The mantel of the back room was banked in green, with a profusion of flowers giving a dash of color to the groundwork. A collation was served at the conclusion of the ceremony the table being most artistic in La France •roses. The bride wore a becoming traveling gown, with hat to match. Mr. and Mrs Shields left last night for an extended eastern tour, and on their return wll! be at home after December 1 at 1217 Wesi Twenty-third street. HERE AND THERE. Judge W. E.

HE WANTED A RIDE In Looking for a Horsethief an Officer Makes a Discovery Mounted Officer Woodward made a capture over on Boyle Heights lait night, bringing to the station an urchin of 8 years and three feet stature, who proved to have been a party for whom the police were looking all day. About nnon yesterday C. W. Leonar 1, employed by J. D. Hooker & Co., left a sorrel horse, attached to a light toy buggy, hitched In front of the firm's place of business at 132-134 South I.os Angeles street. When Leonard finally went for his rig it was none. He gat v Immediate notification to the police and a search was instituted. As no trace of j the missing rig had been found up to ; 7-30 in the evening, when the night watch of police went out, all were : warned to be on the lookout for the dar- ; !nt? horsethlef. | About 8:30 the rig was discovered tied . In the rear of a barn on the premises at No. 1714 East Seventh street, and snuw- > t y wrapped up in the taprobe sleeping | in the bottom of the buggy was the dcs- , perate criminal. To the officer the little lad gave his name as Victor Stowell and age as 8, aI- , though he looks scarcely 6. He toid , several contradictory stories as to how j he came into possession of the horse and buggy. He lived at the corner of Ma teo and Palmetto streets, and his father ; was an engine wiper In a railroad round house. At first he said he was afraid of his stepmother and had run away from hnhie, then a few minutes later said his stepmother' had died and been buried Sunday and that he had no place to go. He had been given the horse and bus gy by some man. yet finally said It be longed to his father, who Had allowed him to use it. He was escorted to the station and the hungry and thirsty ani mat was taker, to a stable. Or, Inquiry being made at the corn:"' • of Mateo and Palmetto streets Victor's statements were found to have a foun dation of truth. He has a stepmother : and his father Ik employed in the round house. His mother said that Victor was j a wild lad and had run away from home On Saturday last, since which time | neither she nor his father had seen j him. What possessed the child to climb | Into the buggy and drive away she could not tell.
