CHANTILLY IS NEW RACE STAR BEATS HIGH CLASS FIELD BY 1 FIFTEEN LENGTHS Colt Romps Under Wire First In Near to Record Time— Schrleber Entry Is I— 2 In ths Steeplechase By Jay Davldton Chantllly was the star performer at Ascot yesterday and the ease with which he defeated a good field, In cluding Prince Hllverwlngs, Roycroft and other high-class performers, places him In a class with the best sprinters at tho course. ?. :i Off to a good Btnrt. Chantllly rushed to the front, without delay and Just kept on rushing, regardless of the fact that tho field was fading away In the dim distance, twenty lengths behind. A mere feather, B.S pounds, was on his back and that feather was Miller, the cruck pilot, which made the feath er all tho lighter. • Chnntllly has never earned the rep utation of being a quitter at any stage of the game and when he opened up a gap of ten lengths in the back stretch, those who had supported Prince Silverwlngs tore up . their tickets. Despite the high-class of the field us a whole and the great record of Prince Sllvcrwings In the east, Chan tllly opened and closed as the favorite, although the Durnell entry was heav ily backed to win. I Prince Silverwings rushed Into the contender's position at the quarter and held It until within thirty yards of the wire, when something unusual hap pened, which no one has yet satisfac torily explained. At this juncture, Prince Silverwlngs stopped us if shot and although seem ingly unnble to lose the place, finished fourth, lioycroft and Parvo passing him. This action of Prince Silverwlngs ex cited much comment not only among the horsemen but among the specta tors. It was so bad that had the Prince's sire. The Commoner, one of the highest class thoroughbreds that 'ever graced the turf, witnessed the performance, he would have rolled over and expired. 1 Spectators believed a foul had been committed, but no horse was close enough for this to occur and no claim of foul was filed by Jockey Wiley. Roycroft ran an Improved race and. after Prince Sllverwings blew up, ran Into second position with Parvo a nose behind. Steeplechase Accidents The steeplechase race furnished the usual number of accidents, although all the jumpers fenced cleanly. Flea ran neck and neck with Killdoe until approaching the fourth jump, when he bolted and ran out of the course. ■ Jockey Sullivan turned Flea's nose back to the Jump after the field was fleeing far. far away and determined ly, forced the Gilbert gelding to finish the jumps. ' Killdoe led the procession after Flea bolted and romped home fifteen lengths to the good. Adams, coupled with Kill doe as the Schreiber entry, ' was an easy second until over the last Jump, when- Atlan.tico closed on him and Jumped into a hole, falling and throw ing Jockey Monahan violently to the ground. . Monahan lay upon the ground in a semi-conscious condition until picked up and taken to the jockeys' room for attention, but soon revived and, be yond a few bruises and a severe jolt ing, was none the worse for his expe rience, although Atlantico jumped over him In arising, barely missing the pros trate jockey. After the fall Adams ran into second place by a margin of eight lengths. Marylander. the only other of the five entries to finish in the run home, was third by sufferance. Hoodwink Wins There were too many good things in second race and only one could score. Hoodwink, a rank outsider -in the "market," ran one of her good- races nnd sent a long line of pikers to the cashiers' offices. Hoodwink has a habit of running like a crippled cow except once In awhile, and yesterday was one of those occasions "except." ■-< ■■ Powell rated her alang with the first three until well Into the stretch, when he sent the Watercress mare after the money. With a burst of speed that would have made Handzarra dizzy, she gal loped by Dixelie, Freeslas and Hersaln us if they were tied and won going away. Dixelie was overdue and Miller took splendid care of the Williams entry, keeping her on the run all the time and gradually mowing down the field until, when entering the stretch, she poked her nose in front and looked all over tho winner. With a length to the good Dixelie sat down to hold the lead, but when Hood wink challenged she could not stall her off. Dixelie was best of the others, however, and landed in second place. Freeslas, also slightingly considered by the piking- element, ran consistently and secured the peep end of the purse by two lengths from llersain, which quit like a beaten cur in the stretch. Confessor Breezes There was nothing to the fourth race but Confessor,' J. L. Holland's high class and consistent colt. He Btood out among his Held like ham and eggs'be fore a. hungry tramp. The public was prohibited the pleas ure of backing him to win, however, as the bookies, who have been running short of change in the last few days, refuned to lay better than 2 to 5. Miller piloted the colt out In front at the start and allowed him to breeze nil the way, winning eased up by three length*. Kthylene, which is only a remnant of her former self, secured second placo hy maintaining her sizzling tipped until Dutiful tired. Dutiful was third, nfter getting away In front iind delighting that clement which Ik always down on a 100-to-l shot. Dutiful opened at 20s and toured to the century mark with oidy a Htrag- Kllng play. ( onfessor took Mm by the head and ibii him dizzy, but Iho gn.y good thing la»ted long enough to Hecure third place by a good margin and cawh tick ets for his adinlrerH at lo to I Varieties was inMalled as favorite for the fifth event, because the Walker gelding hud long b»en knocking at the front entrance and appeared to lie in II SOft Hpot. got him awuy | n front und It whs a mere romp from flag fall to the wire. Varieties winning by three open lengths and wltli some to *pure Selling War On Bllsßful. which has earned a reputa tlon for being one of thn most dunger ou» and inconsistent performers at A» rot thin season, ran uue of her gooj PART 11. rflecs and landed eecond, three lengths behind the winner. Brigand was third and ran on« of the b«st races of hid career, although beaten In klow time. "Piiddln" Me- Daniel had the mount and to hl« stren uous efforts Brigand got the peep end of the purae. Thin wag a selling rnce nntl Varie ties was entered to bo sold for $800. IF. L>. Jones took a fancy to him nnd bid him tip to $1300, getting the Ma setto gelding knocked oft to him. William Walker, who lian lost sev eral good homes In selling wars, re fused to bid the extra $5 necessary to keep Varieties and Jones put the hnlter on nnd sent him to his barn. In retaliation Walker, who lias lost two fair Pinters In sixteen days, claimed T'.llMful from 1,. A. Honsnck. The Uon s.-^rk mare was entered at $500 and Is nblo to take Varieties' measure at any limn regardless of Incrtnslstcncy. Walker tins lost Hot mid Varieties since opening day nnd his Jockey, J. Harris, has been tho source of com plaint. Walker Is sore and he has nome excuse. ]f this selling war proceeda much further he may be a star actor. Tho final race was a left-handed compliment to tho talent In mnny V'ays. There were eleven starters and seven good things, clydeo, owned by ft. ,F. Long, won short on oats and ran a.T If his life was dependent. Needful was the hottest tip of the «uson nnd money rolled Into the books on this one In sums varying from tho two-bit field book to the Steve l'Hom medleu baiiK roll, but Needful was full of need mid could not turn the trick. Clydeo made every post a. winning one and won eased up. St. Wlnlfredo ran her head off trying to catch him, but failed and landed In second place four lengths In front of Kinsman. Elfin King wns played almost off the boards, but finished a bang-up sixth. Handicap Is Feature The feature of the card today Is the $500 handicap for two-year-olds and upward, which will bring together Eugenia Burch, Druid, Hans Wagner, Jake Sanders and El Otroa. El Otros Bhould stay In tho stable, ns he will earn no oats here today. Juke Sanders will perform likewise. The race in between Eugenia Burch, Druid and Hans Wagner and these three will be In the money, which pre cludes any chances of the others. Eugenia Burch Is the class of the race. She is a thoroughbred in all respects and is nbout up to a gruelling race, which means that she can go a mile In 1:39 on this track, which is about one full second faster than any thing else In tho race can travel on a pasteboard track. There la not ten pounds difference between Hans Wagner and Druid, and as Druid has run a mile in 1:40. which is the season's record for this distance, sire should be second, with Hans Wag ner immediately behind him. Wagner Is a consistent performer ard can run a mile In slightly less than 1:40, regardless of weight. Show money to day will be a gift if it Is posted on this one, but it won't. Bavarian May Win The fifth race will attract nearly as much attention as the handicap. With McGrathlana Prince, The Gadfly, Bav arian, DeKaber and Orchan in a small field, there will be some tall scrambling. All these are capable of running a mile In 1 :41 or thereabouts, and as Bav arian has only 89 pounds on, he should cop. r' McGrathlana Prince and The Gadfly will be whiskers apart at the finish and if Bavarian does not get the money these two will fight it out. McGrathiana Prince belongs to Henry McDaniels and will be ridden by Miller. This Is an awful combination, coupled with the performing qualities of the runner. . ' It appears to be probable that Bav arian will win, with McGrathlana Prince second and The Gadfly third. However, this race will be such a grand contest that the best way to beat it is to sit in the grandstand and stare. .•,.•. The opening race will bring together a large bunch of two-year-old fillips which have not won two races this year. Of this bunch Myrtie D has the age and should win without much trouble. Heartful is the next best and on Myr tle's race against Lacene a few days ago. Myrtle should do business. Heartful looks good for the place and Astraea has been knocking for admission into the bracket circle for so long that she should get the show end of the purse with slight exertion. The second race brings together an ordinary field of performers and of the eight entries Fortunatus holds a big edge and should win all the. way. Luckett, the black boy of which Joseph James is so proud, will be the contender without an accident and should hold this position safe from the others. Bill Curtis was once a stake horse, but has gone back, and the best he can do today is to run in the money. Hi should show. Secret Has Chance The third race will become famous for the fact that Secret, which ha& sought brackets so long and so vainly, will have more than an even chance to accomplish his designs. Creston Boy will have Kunz up and will be a hard one to beat, but the place will be about the best he can do. He Is a better consideration for this position than Is Secret to win. Henchman has speed and staying' qualities and is a colt of some class. With the prospects of oats he shoud experience but slight difficulty In roll ing into third position. The- final race of the day is a selling affair over the Futurity course. Nothing less than three-year-olds are eligible and there are some In the en try list that will never see thirty again. Money Muss is the class of the race but 129 pounds is a big package for this one. Count him out. Sun Mark is speedy, and will be first awuy from the post. With only 114 pounds up, which is the minimum weight in this nice, Sun Mark seems to be In a soft spot und bhould romp from the flag to the wire. Montreson is one she must beat. Montreson will be thereabouts for the entire route and will be I—2. Hilona wllY also be a valuable consideration und cannot be worse than third. Uooduink's victory yesterday was— oh, well. The trark* was about one second slow yesterday. Out of five mountH yesterday Miller rede two winners, one second and was unplaced twice. Tho attendance average is increasing nnd for several days has varied be tweeu 3000 and 4000. C, Grand made lilh season's debut at Ascot yesterday with two mounts Ml Uelnu nud Kthylene. His excellent ride on the latter placed her in the race against Confessor. "Puddln" Mr-Donald Ih one of the hnsklPht llnlHhera In the business. His rldo on Brigand yesterday sent the Oil- Vfr gelding into the money when Mil ler was using all his craftsmanship to put rotrero Orande In the same posl tlon. , Jockey K. Morper rode hln first win tier at Ascot yesterday, having the leg up on Killdoe. Morper was once a good rider on the flat and quit to ride In steeplechase races wheii he became to heavy to do the ordinary- weights xiOS ANGELES HERALD: TUESDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 19, 1905.

His previous out to yesterday almost resulted seriously for him, as his mount, Mlndora, fell and threw him violently to the ground. Flea tired of trying to win a jumping race and when he approached the fourth jump yesterday he bolted and ran outside the course. Jockey Sulli van turned him back and after much urging sent him over the Jump and finished the race, but barely made It to the wire within the time limit. At the time when Flea bolted he was running on even terms with Killdoe out In front. Jockey Monahan, who was thrown Violently to the ground when Atlan tlco stumbled at the finish of the steeplechase rnce yesterday, was not injured beyond slight bruises' and a general shaking up. He. was stunned for several minutes and was conveyed to the jockeys' room for attention, but recovered In a few minutes and was able to walk about the paddock.' I The audience In the grand stand was hor rified by the spectacle of horse and boy in the accident, and it appeared as if Atlantlco stepped upon Monahan, but the horse shied out of- the way us It recovered its feet and did not harm the Jockey. The manner in which Chantllly spreadeagled his field in the third race gave the race-going public a new idea as to the running qualities of the Clurk colt. Off to a good start, Chantllly opened up a big gap and increased it with every stride, cantering home a dozen lengths ahead of the field In the font time of 1:2614 for the. seven fur longs. Chantllly ! carried only 8» pounds, which' represented the weight of little W. Miller, who rode him, Cutter and Skeptic, two speedy ones, were scratched out of this race, their owners probably not caring to chase their homes to death after tho Hashing son of Salvation. The reported InmencsH of Handzarra, F. B. Van Meter's speed marvel, which Is the Lok Angeles contribution to the three-cornered race for the coast sprinting championship next Sat urday, has given rise to a renewal of the popular demand for the addition of J. A. Wernberg'g big colt. Big Ben, to the list of starters, and Manager Brooks *iild yesterday that If Hand zurra was unablo to go to the post In this event It Is probable that Big Ben will be substituted. Van Meter Is encouraged in the belief that Hand /.uITH will round to in time to partici pate, as the nlly Ih improving' rapidly and only a Blight soreness Is now ap parent. In addition to the special 12500 match race between Bearcutcher, Cruzadog and Handzarru, which is scheduled for Saturday, the Corouado lieach sell- Ing stakes will be up for decision.

The special $2500 match race arranged between Bearcatcher, Cruzados and Handzarra will attract as much Interest In Frisco and Oakland as In Los Angeles, becausa of the per formances of the northern horses at the up-coast tracks. On his recent performance against Cruzados Bearcatcher will probably be favorite, but when he has trotted the six furlongs he will know that Handzarra was there all the way. The race will be witnessed by thousands and will be the turf event of the season. tions have been made. The distance will be one and one-sixteenth miles. Among those nominated are Hans Wagner, Memories, The Lady Hohe sla, Druid, Massa, Israelite, Confessor, Rubric, Lord Badge, Workman . and Reservation. The- stake will be worth about $2250 gross. These two extraor dinary events are expected to attract the largest number of spectators ever in attendance at the races in Los An geles and preparations are being made for handling this record-breaking crowd. There are occasional evidences of a brewing selling race war at Ascot, ana since opening day there have been live "boosts" and claims filed by horse men. "Boots" Durnell began the trouble by "boosting" Vino, the prop erty of J. A. Wernberg and trained by J. J. McCafferty. The latter was once on terms of friendship with Durnell, but trouble arose between them ■ and a war to the knife has resulted. From this beginning four others have re sulted. Hot was taken from William Wulker by J. Wolf; Retropaw was claimed from J. Curl by H. B. Witten berg; Graceful ran second to Revolt last Friday and two claims were Hied for the illly, William Walker and E. Brewßter being the rival claimants; the final net In this connection was the "boosting" of Varieties, belonging to William Walker, by H. L. Jones after Varieties won the fifth race. Jones bid Varieties up to $1300 from $800, the entered price, and got the speedy geld ing. The claims filed for Graceful were taken under advisement by the judge* nnd they rendered a decision disallow ing either claim, .as neither Walker nor Brewnter . had complied with the ruleH governing . claims. Whether horsemen and spectators are to be treated to the Incidents of a genuine selling war this season is not known, but the appearances at this curly day are favorable. TURF WAR IS PROGRESSING Western Jockey Club Proposes to Es. tabllsh Rival Tracks to Corrlgan Interests Special to The llciulii. NKW OKLI3ANH. Dec. 18.— It was announced today that tho Western Jorkey club will inaugurate racing at every point where the American Tun association conducts meetings during the entire term of- tho approaching year of 19O«. This news was r-onimunlonted from official sources here this afternoon and directly ronttraiH the suspected plan of campaign on the part of tho old turf governing 1 body. From now on the Cella-Condon-Bußh confederacy will "blanket" every move made by tho Corrlgan-Barnes forces. In centers where the Corrlgan fac tlonistH found no opposition last sum mer they will encounter a rival track INGLESIDE this coming year. Other prospective Western Jockey club racing points in 1906 are Denver, Fort Erie and De troit. The Western Jockey club will also have a track at Cincinnati before next June. So far as can be learned a deal has been effected with the Louisville & Nashville railroad, despite the oppo sition of "Joe" Rhinock, whereby the Newport race track becomes the prop erty of the Western Jockey club inter ests.

ACTOR PLEADS FOR FOOTBALL WOULD NOT KILL GAME TO REFORM IT Frederick Truesdell of "The College Widow" Suggests Elimination of Rowdy Players at Solution of Vexations Problem the element of danger from football and you destroy all interest In the game." This Is the radical con tribution of Frederick Truesdell to the wide discussion regarding the future of the gridiron. As Truesdell is both a graduate of Talo, where he was promi nently concerned In the Bnme, and Is also the original hero of the mimic struggle which has made Ade's com edy, "Tho. College Widow," famous, his utterances on the subject become of Interest. This Is especially true be cause Truesdell has some very sane and logical Ideas on the subject. "If It is determined to have football played under rules that govern parlor croquet or 'drop the handkerchief' and kindred amusements, its vogue will die a speedy death," continues Mr. Trues dell. ."Mind you, I am not excusing rowdy methods; I simply wish to em phasize my belief that the advocates of a change are looking to the wrong remedy. "Killing the patient, of course, de stroys the disease, but it Is not con sidered the best thing in medical Juris prudence. Killing the game will re move present objections to It, but lov ers of It can scarcely look compla« cently on while the slaughter pro gresses. "Football Is a man's game and should be played only by the physically fit. A largo number of the accidents that have stirred up this discussion have occurred among tender boys. "Parents can control this feature by seeing to it that their Inexperienced boys seek milder exercise. Accidents among men playing the game are In most instances the result of foul play. But, because a man walking the streets at night is likely to be struck over the head with a club, shall we go so far as to enact laws to prevent his walking the streets at night? "No, the remedy lies in another di rection. Eliminate the rowdy player. Bar him forever from tho game and dismiss him from school the moment he is caught offending. That is the way to purify football and still pre serve its attraction as a contest of strength and skill."

SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 18.-A most pronounced switch occurred in regard to the O'Brlen-Fltzsimmons match last night. Early In the evening O'Brien was favorite at 10 to 7. Then money started to come in. Thero was apparently lots of O'Brien money to cover that which appeared on Fitzslmmons. Then Fulton O. Berry, a millionaire from the raisin belt, happended along with $3000. He grot $2000 to $1800. ' This betting established Fltzßlmmons, the nged gladiator, as favorite. The fact that $3000 was sufficient to so rad ically change tho complexion of the betting shows that fight fans do not appreciate' the work that O'Brien has done here. A week ngo it wns argued that FUk simmons would go Into the ring favor ite because of his old-time punch. He would not have been so had not Berry come through with money to over balance the gambling. Fltzsimmons and O'Brien were both around town tonight and each has abundant confidence. "Wo will win and win easily," was the statement made by Manager Friedman on behalf of Fltz. "There Is no chance In the world that I will lose," said Jack O'Brien. PERFORMANCE INCONSISTENT Prince Silverwings' and Golden Rule's Races Excite Adverse Comment From Racegoers The race of Prince Silverwlngs yes terday at Ascot was so insufferably bad that the grand stand crowds could not restrain Its disapproval, which was ex pressed in groans. Never in the history of racing at Ascot park has any horse of the class of Prince Silverwings approached po near the wire with the two lengths ad vantage he had and run out of the money. Prince Silverwings was a second choice and on form should have dis tanced his field. Steadily his price In the books advanced from 2s to 8s and the faith of the public was not shaken. From a good start the Durnell racer forged into second position upon en tering the stretch and held this advan tage by two lengths until within a few yards of the finish. . Suddenly, as if shot or knocked In the head, the great horse pulled up, stopped to nothing, finishing a poor fourth, losing fully ten lengths In i-ela tlve position in the flash of an eye. This In and out running of horses of the class of Prince Silverwlngs and Golden Rule has excited adverse crit icism of the sport at Ascot and brings reproach upon the game that has oth erwise been untainted thus far this season. Exclamations from those interested expressed the belief that Prince Sil verwings had been fouled, but the fact that no horse was near enough to foul him, Chantllly being fifteen lengths In front and Parvo two lengths behind, dispelled this fear. It was expected that. if a foul had been committed Jockey Wiley would have made a claim upon returning: to the stand, but no such claim 'was filed with the Judges. In-and-out running of horses Is ex cusable under some conditions, when the racer has shown no form of more than ordinary caliber, but when horses of high class perform somersaults with the case and regularity that Prince Silverwings and Golden Rule have shown, the public is not alone In de manding an inquiry.
