cunled There was also a long line
of carriages on one side of the grand
stand and a large number of peoale
clung to the fences on the other side
and across the trck and even over
flowed on the track itself so that It
was with some difficulty that the
crowds were kept back sufficiently to
give the horses a free passage In front
of the judges stand
The races were very satisfactory ex
cept that five heats had to be run oft
in one race and It took four heats to
decide the quarter mile dash so that it
was 720 p m before the races were
over and there were not many spec
tators left to witness the last two heats

or the sale of mutuals and the betting
vas Quite brisk on some of the races

four starters proved winner heat
The starters were Birds Boy Bird

gus driven by McCoy BIscos Bobby
Bdriven by Scott and Winders Emma

not be determined until after five heats
had been trotted when Bobby B won
with three heats to his credit the best
time being 234 Lady Angus got the
second money and Boy Bird third The
first real was won by Boy BIrd In
2i36 Bobby B led all the way fol
lowed by Boy Bird until the horses

a head by Boy Bird In the second heat
Boy Bird led to the head of the stretch
closely followed by Bobby B when the
Bird broke badly and Bobby B won
by several lengths in 235 Lady Angus
ran a poor race in this heat and fin
ovri last Lady Angus won the third
heat however She took the lead after

battle dpwn the stretch between the

Her time was 238 The other two
I orses acted badly and finished far b
lore hind Tn the fourth heat Lady Angus

far behind Lady Angus received sec
ond money and Boy Bird third
Billie D had no trouble at all in win
ning the 225 cam in three straight
heat and Scotts Rex Mambrino wa
second in all the heats The time was
226 22Th and 224Y The third
mon went to Emma D A but none
of the horses except Billle D and Mam

Penrose Wins the Bicycle RoadRace
Entertainment at the Lagoon
Amid a cloud of Davis county dust
and close to the obseryation traIn which
carried over 200 Sat Lake enthusiasts
to Farmington H L Penrose of the
630 class yesterdaydashed alone over
the chalk line a winner by 200 yards of
the great annual road race Almost in
the dust of the amateurs gallant ride
V E Emery one of the scratch men
closely bunched with Arthur Liday and
f Heman went with a beautiful spurt
past the athletes who were hugging his I I I
wheel and captured the time prize In
5016 prze
The result caused wild enthusiasm 1 i
leavened with surprise Emery was the
favorite among the talent over Hassard I
the other scratch manbut everyone had I
underestimated the wondrous loco I
motive powers of young Penrose The i
old reputation of road races for bringing j
out new blood wa kept up at yester I i
days celebration aa the victory won by
Penrose effort was the result o his maiden I
cforLTe weather was as full of balm as a
sultans garden The sun sent down
his yellow javelins from a sky that was
not all azure and when the miniature
train lurched forward at 1030 on the
way to the lagoon soft winds were
carousing with fleecy clouds and i
crouslng wih fey occasionally
sionally raising blurred outlines of dust I
on the broad road
At the corner of SecondWest and
Third North the observation train
ceased its lurching and slowed and on
the road facing westward a brilliant
assortment of multicolored wheels
with orienttinted costumes maroon
pink and orange In the midst of them
glinted gloriously In the sun These
were the starters
Dick Conley the official starter de
scended from the train with a prodigi
ous sun and at the signal from his
barker first the 730 class and finally
the scratch men went spinning along
the road and disappeared around the
corner on the road which leads to
distant Farmington
Two of the impetuous amateurs Sam
uel Gallagher and A Anakin started
up the road at a one lap clip and when
they collided a few paces from where
Conleys gun was pouring signals into
the air they went to the ground to
gether with one badly dilaaidated
Wheel and two highly ornamented faces
Anakin mounted his wheel again and
started on but Gallagher who had
knocked several spokes out of his
charger concluded to retire Neither
o the boys was injured seriously
The train again lurched northward
and the athletes were soon out of visual
range of the people on tb2 car
In front of the Elevators works the
lithe forms of Hassard and Emery were
seen on the road Both were apparently
saving their sinews for future use
Only fleetIng visions of the riders
were seen until Bountiful was reached
Then two dark forms went swinging
through the dust close to where the
observation train was in waiting
The first was Penrose who was
pressing forward at a steady hard
pace 200 yards ahead of Lawver The
train again lurched forard and for
almost a mile the rigid forms ofthe
plodding racers were seen on the road
still with the relative space between
them unchanged Then the lurching of
the dummy elongated Into a brisk
swift series of lunges and the two
riders were soon lost in the dus and
distancePENROSE I
The tape which indicated the finish
of the race was only a few yards from 1
the car and soon the I
cr ad spaces on > either
side of the
road were black with spec
tators There was only a few minutes
to wait A sable form swung over the
brow of the hill and came towards the
crowd at a hard vigorous pace I
3 Penrose and when he finished
over 200 yards to the fore of Lawver
there was tumult of cheers
The other riders came straggling
slowly usualy with long lapses of terra I
firma between them The prettiest fin I
ish was between Emery Liday and
Herman who had a small race alJ to
themselves They came down the grade i
I from the hill so closely that a Mexican I
lariat would have covered all three but j I
the sturdy Emery with a wonderful I
spurt sped beyond his competitors and i
I won with several yards to snare I
A solltay figure turned the corner by
the hill and came forward with a look
of angelic resignation and contentment I
upon his dustcovered features I was I
Cutting and because the chain of his i
wheel was broken he was coasting in i
stead of racing There were cries of
Go on and Carry your wheel over
from all sides and Cutting finally suc
cumbed to persuasion and carried his
disabled charger beyond the tape He I
looked as if the expostulations of his
admirers bored him very much Indeed
His wheel had become hors de combat
while downward climbing stretch the last hill before the

great dispatch leaving his new

Gateway General lUiilway News
The first official appointments made by
the Rio Grande Western by reason of the
Ogden gateway opening were those
emanating yesterday from the freight de
partment Only two promotions fell from
General Manager Dodges hands One
was the naming of W C McBride as
general agent of the freight department
with headquarters at Butte the other
was an appointment of emial rank at
Portland W H Paul receiving the honor
1 V C MviBrlde has been In the service
of the Western for some years occupy
ing at the time of his last promotion the
position of traveling freight agent W H
Paul has been the freight claim agent of
the road Both appointments take effect
today and others are likely to follow I
It Is thought the business of the road
demands the presence of other agents In
the northwestern territory
As a matter of course two similar ap
pointments will be made from the pas
senger department but any possibilities
for these positions have not yet been
I mentioned General Papsenger Agent
Wadlelgh began his campaign In the new
I I territory yesterday morning when by
I telegraphic arrangement there appeared
I In the newspapers of Portland Butte I
I Helena I Anaconda and Boise of even
date a half page advertisement ofe the
I fact that the Ogden gateway was open
and the Rio Grande Western was out for
business The Inquiries I already received
by the passenger department from In
tending travelers at Logan Pocatello and
other points to the north gave good Indi
cations that there are many teachers in
catons man3
those sections who want to use the West
ern for their eastern visits Attention Is
also being directed to the change In the
time schedule made necessary by West
ern and Short Line connections at Ogden
The operating department will find
plenty of work incident to the change
General Superintendent Welby bf the
Western Is getting ready to place I large
order for new freight cars as an addi
tion to the rolling stock made necessary
by the Increased traffic
Dickinson Cannot Predict the Effect
of the S L Action
Omaha May Speaking of the open
ing of the Ogden gateway and the effect
on traffic arrangements General Manager
Dickinson of the Union Pacific said I
cannot predict what the effect will be and
I do not think any one can at this time
There will probably be a conference at an
early date between Union Pacific and
Short Line officials to make such traffic
arrangements as are necessary by the
change >
This will be no Increase of course and
the opening of the Ogden gateway will
simply mean that business will be divided
upGeneral Passenger Agent Lomax of
the Union Pacific said that whatever
changes would be brought about by the
opening of the gateway he was as yet
unable to state The change would be
more Important to the freight than the
passenger department
General Passenger Agent Francis of the
Burlington said v
Its rather goo news for the Burling
ton The effect will beHcS lefus Into the
t J hl
territory Oeff the Short Line from which
we have been excluded the pagt In
stead of having but one route through to
Portland and other northwestern points
the Burlington will now have two We
can now route passengers either via BI1 I
lings or via Denver and Salt Lake The
ls flaoPi latter route will not be i
at the expense of the former We can
simply give the travelers their chpice of I
routes thats all
