FAVORITES FAIL WHEN CALLED ON ONLY TWO OF FIRST CHOICES CONNECT WITH COIN STANLEY FAY TAKES FOURTH IN RECORD TIME Straggling Starts Mark Day at Santa Anita and Daruma I* Left Ab solutely—Harvel Takes Opening Event J. G. GRIFFIN TVVi stingy favorites got home to re wara the form players yesterday, and the eagle-eyes who watch for the g-00l things had all kinds of joy. Inci dentally, the books prospered, for the win ners were none In that class which can be talked of as killing subjects. There T*as little feature to the card save in the fourth number, which was won by Stanley Fay in coast record time. Before the race It was predicted that Red Walker's clever colt would go out with George S. Davis and race himself sick, but when it came to the real going Stan ley Fay stuck on like a game horso and was an easy winner over Critic and GtMTO. Straggling starts marked the day, and in one instance It was a good thins for the educated brigade. In the second num ber on the card Daruma was conceded a nici- right to beat Timothy Wen, the Pas adenu stable's candidate, but she was left at the post ami had ii" chance at all. As usiiul, when Williams. Holland and the other Insiders bet their money the chosen huts won, and Timothy had no (rouble in illsposlng of those left after Daruma (ailed to break. l'"or b four-horse Melil the purse race, which did duty as « feature, was a neat iffori. Everything in the rare was known to be. up to a race and out to try, and the result was sum. lively betting. Stan ley Fay. with lie' pounds and Musgrave on his oack, was made favorite aroufid ■van money, with Lisaro and George 8. Davis, both getting a pln.v. and Critic being allowed to ascend on the slates. The break froi-i the seven-furlong* pole was an even thing, and Oeorge S. Davis Hii.l Stanley Fay started out ;it mice 10 separate themselves from the other pair. Davis picked up a nice lead, but at the head of the stretch Stanley Fay grabbed him and was soon on his way to victory. <"rhic came up on the outside, but a short brush with Stanley was enough and the Bauer entry hail to be content with tin place, a length and a hall in front of L.lsa.ro. George S. Davis stopped to noth ing, and was a distant la;:t. Harvel Takes Opener The day's sport pened when Luckfoot, Old Settler and L. (.'. Wldrig gave nay to Harvel in winning the slx-Curlong race for which eight 3-year-olds sported col ors. Rufccuno gathered second money, with Wuirig third, and the other short out of the coin. The break favored Rußctmo and llar ve!. and they went out, to be followed by L. C. ■VVidrig. After passing hal» i'reiton took Harvei on about hi.s busi ness and he won eased off by five lengths. Ku&cimo maintained a length lead over 1,. <'. Wklrig. with the others having no chance to get any part of the money. \S itli Darunia left absolutely, and King AVilda also falling to break to advantage, Timothy Wen had no trouble In winning ill!' second number <'ii the program, beat ing Gateway by two lengths. Black Mate whs only a head behind the place horse with King Wile'- three lengths back to get nothing. Dwyer thought he had them In Una and let the ribbon up, but Darunia was not .n proper position and failed to get away. Timothy Wen went right to the front anc' was never in danger, and Gateway and Black Mate traded positions behind the right at the wire, with Gateway a head to the good. Thirteen maiden ambled out to the six-furlong pole to contest the third event. ;nn( Agrei nietit was all the ring talk. Nick Btoner and Round and Round took must of tli> play that was left, with th- others at varying figures. The) win ner turned up in Bambro, with Round and Round second and Dr. Simrall third. Nick Stoner's chances were spoiled when the barrier was sprung, and Boland took Bambro out in front to make his own running. Dr. .Simrall stuck around close to tha front lor a half and then dropped back a notch, Round and Round assuming the place. Ross put his mount to a. drive In the Unal eighth, but Bambro was able to stall Round and Round off. and win by a head. Nick Stoner, running the best race of the bunch, was fourth, unable to catch Dr. Simrall for the short end. Outsider in Fifth Outsiders predominated in the fifth race, a seven-furlong event fur which ten plat- ers lined up, and Rustling Silk was Just good enough to beat Escamado half a length for the big end of the purse. Any rider at the track but Mcßrldu might have won with Escamado, for even such a stable boy aa Nelson on the winner was able to hang it on him.

The Cadets will be very fortunate If Mathewson can be in duced to spend a few weeks up here, M his services would help them considerably. This will be the first time that Matty has ever acted as a professional coach, notwithstanding that he has received many flattering offers, during his success ful career. Gronlnger, who was elected captain for this year, has been replaced by Mount ford owing to the former graduating In February. Work will begin in the cage February 1.

CLEMENT Secretary Smith will have them all guessing again today, as he has an ex ceptionally bard peofratt) for this after noon, and those lucky enough to pick the winners should BO home with all their pockets filled with Uncle Sam's long green, i.s the 'winners should be at a re munerative price. A handicap! purse and four selling races constitute the card. :u»l close finishes and ttood sport should lie the result, especially in the handicap, which brings out a very good lot of sprinters; and the weights they are assigned lo carry t-'ives each one an equal chance. Waterlmry is In grand form right now. and If he can carry his Impost has a good chance to carry off first honors. Rapid Water came from Oakland with a number of victories to his credit nnd should bo a danferoui factor all the way. Sir Edward is good right now and he will be a contender all the way, and it would be no surprise to see him win. All Alone, with his light weight. wiU step a very fast half, and If he sticks the distance Will get some part of the money. Ranfara needed her last race to put her on e.dge and with a little improvement that can be expected she has an excellent chance. Molesey and Mary F. are both clever tricks and with only a feather up will go well. George S. Davtl will probably be scratched, as h» had a hard race yesterday. First for Maidens A big Held of maidens will go In the llrst race, and it is a hard bunch from which to select the winner. Arragon has always shown a good burst of speed, and if he can carry it a little further than he has been doing will be a hard horse to catch. George Swain looks like the con tender, and he will probably run a good lace, so should hold the place safe. Buena. Llshia and Nadzu are outsiders thai should run good races and one oi them may beat the two top ones. The others ilo not call for much. Of the 2-year-Oldl thai have started already Achieve figures best on her only Start, but that is not saying much, as Chilla figures close up and may beat her. Fred Maler should be ln the money. Of the new ones that have shown good morn- Ing trials Colonel Dick, Foreguard and Miniature are the best. An ordinary lot of selling plate sprinters are asked to go six furlongs in the third race. If they run to form and figure! Prolific will be the one to beat, as he showed a good turn of speed in his last race and is on edge. Lee Harrison II and Hallle Sherman may fight it out for ■.lie place money, and l.cc .should beat Hallle. Pelham and Albion H both have a good chance to get ln the money. The others do not figure with much of a chance, but the unexpected may happen in racing. Haron Esher, Ouardl and Chippewn figure very close for the Itfth race and they may finish as named. First Peep and Elie are the ones that may prove troublesome, so they bear watching, as they may spill the beans. A rather poor lot are carded to start in the sixth race, and it is a most open affair. Anna May beat Airs last time they hooked up and should do so again nnd may win today. Klrkfield Belle figures closte up and may beat her ratine; by taklnc Anna May and Airs into camp.

The body was not discovered until last night when John Hanson, an em ploye of the house, broke down the. door of the room and found the body lying on the bed with a bullet hole in the left breast and a cheap revolver clasped in the right hand. Robertson arrived here two weeks ago from San Francisco und secured a room at the Wall street house. Ho paid In advance for two weeks and Stated that he had come here to look for work and also for the benefit of his health. He was seen to go to his room Tues day and at about 3 o'clock the muffled report of a shot was heard by a num ber of persons in the house, but it was not thought to have been in the house and no Investigation was made of It. Last night tne porter in making his rounds found that room 12, which was occupied by Robertson or Wright, had not been opened during the day and 'ie looked over the transom. The body of the man was seen lying on tho bed and something unnatural In the position caused the porter to break In the door. It was found that tho man was dead. At Pl-ree Brothers' morgue, where the body was taken after the coronor had hee,n notified, a note was found in the pocket of the coat which read M follows: "I can no longer struggle for this plain. common living. Too free hearted and unfortunate. Bury me here. I have no home, but I have a little sister In South Bend, Ind. My true name Is Richard Robertson."

It will be in reality a club run, or the moit »evere type, notwithstanding that the distances tor .-'llOll days run seem short. The run will be from Jacksonville lo Miami. 3«J<5 miles, anil under tin: auspices and direction 8C thi' Florida Bait Const Automobile as sociation, the president of which, Ma jor Arthur B. Foster, is taking a great interest in It, as are the directors oC tin' association. .Majnr Foster will start the run from the Times-Union office, corner of Bay and Hopnn Btreeta, Jacksonville, and win welcome tin- drivers at St. An- Kustlnc. on the first leg of their Jour ney. From that point, President Fos ter will go to Daytona cither by auto mobije or train and arrange a recep tion to Iho fand-pluggers at the beau tiful home of the Florida East Coast Automobile association on the famous Ormond-Daytona beach. About the Start The start will be made early in the morning and the drivers will make a control at Alcazar, St. Augustine, and there take lunch and be checked by the mayor of the city, Postmaster Alba, Manager John Ande.rson of the Hotel Alcazar, and other prominent olttsem. From that point the drivers will lilt the King's highway for Ormond. The distance from Jacksonville to St. Au gustine is thirty-seven miles, and the total distance for the day to Ormond will be 104 mlleß. Speaking of the King's highway, it is well known that King George's troops built a road from Marysville, Ga., through the Florida forests, which Is still in very fair condition In places. Thomas White, father of Windsor White, president of the White com- 1 pany of Cleveland, has recently per sonally supervised the work of a foroe of men who are placing the King's highway in tolerable shape In Mia neighborhood of Ormond. Mr, White is a winter resident of Florida and is particularly anxious to see a road built from Jacksonville to Miami, or a road so Improved that au tomobiles can drive the entire length of the peninsula. ■■ Some Rough Going The second day's run will be to Rock ledge, 17." miles from Jacksonville, total mileage of seventy-one miles for the day. Half of the distance, however, is very rough, going over a trail merely showing the way, The third day's run will be from Rock ledge to Fort Pierce, "42 miles, or sixty seven miles for the day. This day's run will be through barren waste and some creeks will have to be. forded and pos sibly a little hrldgework built, but the commissioners of the county will give a hand In making the road passable by the time of the run. I The fourth day's run will be a stem winder, and the "sand crabs," as the prospective drivers have already been dubbed, will have a day of strenuous work, as the going between Fort Pierce and Palm Beach Is said to be something awful, even no trail In some places, and connections will have to bo made with sundry turpentine roads cut out of the big wheel turpentine carts. Speaking of these roads, it will bo well for nil drivers to use tlO-ineh trend In : order to follow the turpentine carts and | not the regulation 50-lnch tread, as It will be much easier going ,1 they can follow the ruts made by the turpentine carts and sundry other vehicles of a similar tread used almost exclusively in Florida. And Then Elysium The fifth day will be "waffles and honey" for all hands, as the beautiful road, narrow though it is. built of soft limestone by Dade county, assisted by Mr. Flaglcr, from Palm Beach to Miami, is a thing of joy, after coming out of the wilderness of bad roads. Controls for the night will be at Or mond, Rockledge, Ft. Pierre and Palm Beahc, and drivers will not be allowed to start before 6 o'clock in the morning. The rules of this club run (which will be of a national character) are Hummed up in four words by the representative of the. Florida East Coast Automobile association in New York, and those are, "Start and get therew." and that is about all tHat will be required with tha ex ception of the controls, made both for the safety and comfort of all. Jacksonville In Line About fifty members of the F. E. C. A. A. h.-.ve their cars with them at Day tona and other points, and It is expected that they will make quite a few entries for the run. Any kind of automobile is eligible, and among the first entries were two from Hutto & Co., Jacksonville, who enter two single-cylinder Detroit ma chines. One of the drivers of the later machine is a native Florida "cracker," who knows his way through the woods, and he la expected to make the running for the rest, although the road will be well de nned by a pathfinder, who will in about two weeks 1 time go over the road with pencil camera and lay out the entire course. The controls may bo slightly altered, If his Investigation shows that to be necessary. The end of the run will be at the Royal Palm, Miami, where Hon. John Sewall, Joseph P. Greaves and othjer prominent cltiienß will check the survivors. No secret 1h made of the fact that the hard road run is given for the purpose Increase Your Eye Power.... 8 to 12 Times by a pair of Ross Prism Binoculars or the new Perplex Binoculars.

CARRIES OFF CLEVER PRESS AGENT S TUNT MUCH.HERALDED STOCK CAR AT LAST ARRIVES Owner Is with It, but Refuse* to Sign for Race to Prove Superior Qualities of His Machine W. C. Vaughan has pulled off one of the best press agent stunts that has come from automobile row lately, and the Apperson Jack Rabbit is all to the good on the free advertising. Not long ago word was passed along by the sales agent of the Apperson that Edgar Apperson was coming to the coast with a fast stock car. in fact It was claimed it was the fastest stock car of Ita rated horse power In America. There was a sack that was to accom pany Apperson, and when the bottom was reached there would be ten thousand dollars in sight and any amount of it would be placed against any stock car for a race. As Apperson has declared against any further track racing, some of the local speed maniacs got busy trying to arrange a race on the road that would force Ap person to make good on the talk of his press agent. After bulletining the progress of Ap person and his car across the continent the papers announced In large type they wtrc here. Yesterday an authorized representative of Captain Ryus and Billy Reuss, In fact no other personage than the old reliable Charles Fuller Gates, .went to Apperson with the proposition to 1 race on the road for any distance from fifty miles up to a hundred or more for a purse of any amount up to JBOOO. Did Appcr*on put up the money? Not yet and maybe not soon. "I cer ; talnly am not willing to risk my life In raclr.s over roads that I do not know," said App«r*on whan asked if he would \ j take up the challenge. Capable Drivers Here When It was suggested there were ! some capable drivers in the city who 1 would probably be better able to pilot 1 the car to victory than Apperson him : iielf, ms they knew the roads and knew j how to drive, he claimed he wanted only S a driver who was acquainted with the car. "I am willing to race on a good stretch for a half or three-quarters of a mile If it can be arranged," said the manufac turer, "and I think if the car can show speed for that distance It will be a dem ! onstratlon the machine has It in it." There was no answer on Apperson's part to the argument that a road race was the only kind that would demon strate what his car would do on Califor nia roads. . "I would not be willing to enter into such a contest as that suggested with out the authority of my people at the factory, as I am only a minority stock holder myself, and 1 am sure I cannot say what they will think of It. I will take the matter up," continued Apper son, "and find out as soon as I can what they think about it." Apperson Merles all knowledge of where Vaughn gut the authority to make tin statement that the car Would be entered '| to race with Jlrt.iw to back It. Mr. Vaughn was out qf the salesroom at the time, and eo*uld not be fuund to learn where the proposition umo from or If it was a clever advertising dodK>> j to set the. arrival of the car before the I public for the least possible expense. In the meantime the "Gray Devil' stands quietly In front of the White garage for I Rood part of caeli day and says nothing, while still Hashes the long roll of scrip that Itgures up JS'JVO with no takors. * TO BEGIN THIS MORNING FAMILY OF ACCUSED MAN TO BE IN COURT Attorneys of Man Alleged to Be Mes. kll's Companion in Crime Will Make Vigorous Fight for Client The trial of Holla Robe, charged Joirt ly with Daniel F.
