PHILADELPHIA, Aug. 6. — The
opening race of the eighteenth annuai
meet of the L. A. W. was held today at
Willow Grove, fourteen miles from this
' •city, before 15,000 spectators. It was the
most successful In the history of the or
ganization in point of attendance, en
thusiasm and good racing. Several state
records were smashed, and Arthur Gard
iner of Chicago came within two-fifths
of a second of beating Hamilton's record
for one mile, paced. Hesucceeded in low
ering the fast mile made by J. S. John
son at Chicago last year by four-fifths
of a second. Gardiner was paced by two
quads, one ridden by Wenzel, the Tru
vllle boys and Coburn, and the other
with W. E. Becker, Crooks, Brown and
Stenzer. He crossed the line like a flash
for the start and never ceased his pace
until the finish, in 1:31)3-5, breaking the
ftate record of 1:45 3-5, held by Earl
Kiser. Starbuck also took a try at the
record, paced by a quad and a triplet.
His time was 1.44 3-5 also breaking
Riser's record.
Both these events followed the sched
uled races for the day. In the latter the
honors among the professionals were
won. by F. J. Loughead of Sarnla, Ont.,
who crossed the tape, in three trials, two
-finals, and was second man in a third
-final In one of these finals, the one mile
(professional, he broke the state compet
itive record of 2:04 4-5 by covering the
distance in 2:03 3-5 He captured the
quarter mile championship in 42 sec
onds.
Among the amateurs honors were
■more evenly divided, with the best rac
ing done by Peabody, Johnson, Midden
dorf, Schaede, Krick and Miller.
The day was perfect and the sun was
not long up before hundreds of cyclists
were pedaling along the historic and
picturesque York road toward Willow
grove, and even greater numbers w : ere
taxing the railroad trains and trolly
car«> to their utmost. The heat from the
sun was tempered by a cool northwest
erly breeae, and there was an almost to
tal absence of humidity.
There were early morning runs to
League Island navy yard at the lower
end of Brown street, across Rope Ferry
bridge to Paschalville, Pa., returning
by way of Woodland avenue, West Phil
adelphia, to Broadi street, where the col-
umns merged into thearmy of w heelmeci
who Had gone through Fairmount park
and the Wissahickon drive and the big
ecrieduled run to the track began.
The trlais began promptly at 9 oclock
with several thousand spectators. At
12:40 there was a recess for lunch.
Meanwhile the seats were rapidly filling
up and long before the hour for resuming
it was evident that the crowd would be
enormous. At 3 oclock the track was
cleared and racing began, continuing
until 6 oclor/k without the slightest
hitch. During the entire day there were
but two or three spills and nobody was
hurt by these.
Tonight Willow Grove park was given
over to the wheelmen, and the visitors
saw exhibitions of trick and fancy riding
a display of fireworks and a general
good time.
Tomorrow promises to be the banner
day, and the seating capacity of the
track will be taxed to the utmost. The
rates will begin at 9 oclock, under the
same officials with the exception that
the ex-chairman of the racing board,
Gideon, will be relieved by Albert Mot',
of Baltimore, the present chairman, as
referee.
.All roads leading to the Willow Grove
track seemed to have been converted
into bicycle paths, policemen, usually
so strict with regard to scorching, paid
no attention to the visitors committing
a breach of the law by traveling at a
2:40 gait. Notwithstanding that thous
ands were pushing their way to Willow-
Grove on wheels, the street cars and
railroads were also taxed to the utmost.
Willow Grove track was a revelation to
the visitors. They had never seen such a
race course—specially constructed with
wood, solid as a rock, and entirely sur
rounded by seats, with a capacity of
nearly 25,000. Flags fluttered from hun
dreds of staffs, and the L, A. W. purpie
predominated everywhere. The racing
cracks were awake early this morning,
and after a good rubbing down, took
preliminary spins.
A light wind swept across the track
from the northwest. Everything was
in proper condition for fast time. The
wheelmen expressed themselves as im
mensely pleased with the three-lap
board track, which was built especially
for this meet. It was banked seven feet
at turns and was forty feet wide at the
finish, solid as a rock, and lightning fast.

TTJRF AND TRACK
A Good Crowd at Oakland—Other
Races
OAKLAND, Aug. 6.—The trotting
races today attracted a good crowd, and
the sport was excellent, especially the
2:24 class trotting, which proved to be
the best race of the week.
Two gentlemen's races created much
excitement, especially among the mem
bers of the Golden Gate Driving club.
There were an unusual number of heats
and it was dark before the day's sport
was ended.
The 2:24 trot drew out an excellent
entry and the betting on the events was
brisk at all times. In this race lora. a
Humboldt county animal, owned by P.
H. Quinn and driven by R. Noble, gave
the talent a great shock. She was not
wanted at all by the betters in the pre
liminary heats, being Infiked upon mere
ly as being outclassed, but the game lit
tle mare came in for greater notice as
the heats progressed and feo the end there
were many takers at 20 to 8. Peko and
Daisy Wood were heavily backed to beat
the Humboldt county representative,
but they could not catch little lora, who
jogged under the wire a length to the
good and going easily. Summaries:
Gentlemen's road race for members of
the Golden Gate Driving clvb —Eugene
Cerciats won, Our Joe second. Lady Van
Ness third; time, 2:32%, 2:28%, 2:26%.

AT COLUMBUS
COLUMBUS, Ohio, Aug. 6—Today w as
replete with surprises at the Columbus
Driving park, there being a reversal of
the order of the previous day. w hen the
favorites won a majority of the events.
The greatest surprise was the free-for
all race. There were four starters, Joe
Patchen, Star Pointer, Lottie Lorain and
Badge. Last night Star Pointer sold In
the pools at 100 to 20 against the field. It
w as the judgment of nearly every horse
man that Pointer would win in a walk,
and few were willing to buy the field.
But Pointer did not win. The much laud
ed conqueror of John R. Gentry and Joe
' Patchen was vanquished by the great
son of Patchen Wllkesnin one of the most
exciting races ever witnessed. Patchen
not only won the race on its merits but
i paced the fastest mile ever made In the
grand circuit, equaling the world's rec
ord of 2:01%, made by John R. Gentry at
Glenn's Falls. The track was in fine
condition. Had It not been for a strong
breeze that blew across the track, a new
world's record undoubtedly would have
been established, as otherwise the condi
tions were perfect. Summaries:

FISH DUTIES
Americans Should Not Employ Cana-
dian Fishermen
DULUTH, Minn., August 6—An is
sue, in which a large number of fish com
panies are said to be interested, has been
raised here. A vigorous protest has
been made by the Booth Packing Com
pany against paying the quarter cent
duty on fish imposed by the Dingley bill.
Collector Willicuts of this port levied
on a cargo of fish on one of the Booth
steamers. He takes the position that
the fish levied on cannot be admitted
tree, as they were caught In Canadian
waters by Canadian fishermen in tbe em
ploy.of the Booth Company.
The company, however, has fllecl a
protest, in which it is stated that it is an
\merican corporation, composed of cit
izens of the United States; that the fish
were caught in nets owned by the com
pany and were packed and transferred
by it, that for this reason the fish should
be admitted free under a provision of
the Dingley bill which allows citizens of
the United States to bring in fish free of
duty which they catch In foreign waters.
The decision of Collector Willicuts will
be appealed to the Secretary of the
Treasury, and if the company Is decided
against there, it is said it will be taken
into court as a test case.
A REAL MONOPOLY
An American Trust Obtains Venezu-
elan Concessions
NEW YORK, August 6.—The republic
of Venezuela has granted a concession,
giving a substantial monopoly for the
establishment of the distilling industry
in the republic, which was obtained in
the interest of the American Spirits
Manufacturing Company. Representa
tives of that company have paid a
number of visits to Caracas in the last
twelve months and the company since
the granting of its concession has sent
one of its practical men to supervise
the erection, of a plant, all the parts of
which have been assembled in that city
ready for shipment. The import duty is
practically prohibitory, amounting to
about 50 cents a pound, equivalent to
$3.80 a gallon. The concession, which
is for six years, gives a right to bring
in- all the necessary plant and raw ma
terial free. It was, said that the Amer
ican Spirits Company is conducting
-imilar negotiations elsewhere, which,
if expectations are only partially real
ized, will result in a very large exten
sion of the business of the company.
WANTS WARMTH
An Edison Stockholder Objects to a
Freeze Out
NEW YORK, August 6—Judge Wal
ter Lloyd Smith of the Supreme Court in
Brooklyn has reserved decision on the
application of Mr. Gamble of this clty
for an injunction to restrain the Knick
erbocker Trust Company of New York
from foreclosing a $4,000,000 mortgage on
the property of the Edison Illuminating
Company at St. Louis. Mr. Gamble also
asked for an accounting and fop the ap
pointment of a receiver for the Edison
Company.
Mr. Gamble sues as a stockholder own
ing $5700 of stock, He alleges that It is
proposed to foreclose the mortgage in
order to effect a reorganization of the
company, which, however, is nothing
but a "freeze-out," according to his law
yer. He insists that the foreclosure
sought on the alleged non-payment of
Interest Is Unnecessary, as the company
has always made enough money to pay
all Its obligations.

"The track is laid' and the cars are
now running to Crimea house, a distanc:
of 32% miles," said Contractor Erick
