The defeat of Borghesl, odds-on
favorite in the only class race on
the card, because of his evident
inability to negotiate the muddy
going, was the feature of yester
day's racing at Emeryville. The
outcome of the race had the effect
of settling the mooted question
the mud-running qualities of
Rudolph Spreckels' Thanksgiving
Handicap winner. Borghesi won
the Thanksgiving stake over a
sloppy track with a hard bottom.
His next appearance was in the
Christmas Handicap, which was
run over a track that was deep
in mud. The horse finished last,
but his poor showing was in part
attributable to the fact that
Jockey Knapp had eased him up
through the stretch when he saw
that the horse could not defeat
Dr. Leg^o, after running close
up to the leaders in the early
stages. Yesterday bookmakers
and form players made the mis
take of figuring that the track
was not so deep as on Christmas
<lay. and that the horse would
ri<" able to run a rare similar to his
Thank^E-lt-lni? day effort. The elimina
tion of th«* Kurplu* water from the
track yesterday, as' a result of the
floating process to which the course Is
now daily subjected by Superintendent
Orant. In order to keep It In aa good
oonrtitlon aa possible. rendered the
'•nurao muddy rather than sloppy and
Morgrhesl proved a bitter disappoint
ment. Itudolph Rpreckcls was present
to ccc the race and th«» result vraa far
from whnt he- and Trainer Randall had
lioprd for. Bor^hesi finished next to
last. - ..' . ':.
nrnnic iw a galjJop
aC. Hildreth's Rood mare LoftfsUlla
ran in the K&me race, but her failure
to negotiate the ferolng was a foregone
conclusion, her price drifting' back from
I to -4. It has been well known that
-the marc cannot run on a wet track.
She finished third, elpht lengths In
front of Borphrsl.
Ed <Jaylord'» Rubric, with Sandy In
the saddle, won the race in a crallop,
affrr !iavlnK been played down e« a
pood tiling from fives to throe*. The
Borgian. hacked down from 50 to 25,
s*»t the pace by sufTrance to the
Mr«"tc!i, where Rubric brftczed over him
•with -consummate cafe to win by five
lengths. The Borprian was as vastly
p^cond. nearly two lengths in front of
Logistilla. ' Rightful ran last all the
Graham, who had the mount on Bor
grhesl. said that the horse was able to
run freely for about a quarter of a
mile. During the remainder of the
route he labored very hard and steadily
dropped behind.
The unique Bp*»ctaclfl was presented
in this race of two full brothers com
peting for the honor of winning, The
Borcian and BorKhesl both being by
Brutus out of Ledette. The Borgian
is a five-year-old, while Borghesl Is
a elx-ycar-old! The Boreian was able
to run risrht to his notch in the go
ir.R. In sharp contrast to his brother.
Only two favorites were successful — \u25a0
"Rravoure at even money and Shady
I^ad at 7 to 10. The' former, a Gerol-
Meln-Prirsu-ss fl-^ from the Keene
stable, showed hrr class by winning
the opening: event, at three furlongs,
for two-year-old maidnns, with great
eacfi. Tommy Clark got her away from
Hie post In th*» first flipht, and she
romped away from her field. Tommy
landed Parasol, a Yankee Doodle
filly owned by Frankie Kiel, the pu
gilist, an oary second. Brookleaf Just
did lake show honors away from Hii
drrth's Billy Meyer. The remainder
ran very moderate races.
It was Mhwi-I Hollander all the way
In the second, over the Futurity course.
I* Williams cave the Stover fllly an
fxcrllent ride and she held Paladini,
who essayed to go out with her, safe
from the three-quarter pole home.
Paladini was easily second, with
Blanche. C third by a narrow margin.
Triumphant, the favorite, carrying, a
large stable commission, was never
prominent and ran a dull race. Trlum
phant's best races hay« been over a
heavy, holding track and the slushy
going may have been his undoing.
Ooco, on whom her owners bet heavily,
ran far below par.
Shady l^ad outclassed the field which
ran with him in the third, and'the race
wet little more than a gallop for him.
Ohri* MMt was up. and following
Princess Wheeler, the pacemaker, close
ly to the stretch, let his mount down
at the paddock and won by more than
a length. Princess Whr-eler waa easily
second by four lengths and it looked as
though David Boland could not lose the
show after bring under wraps all the
way, but Jockey Williams pulled him
sharplyup at the wire, ,and Yellow
stone nosed him out in the final stride.
The others were beaten off.
The fourth resulted in the only stir
ring finish of tlie day, Xine Spot, C C
McCaffrrty's Hastings-Nineveh mare,
suddenly coming to life and defeating
Alma Boy, the favorite, by a short nose.
Judgfi set tho pace to' the etretch,
where he quit as usual after passing
tho paddock gate. Lone "Wolf was
third all the way. Sir Carter blew up
after runnlnjr in forward contention
for a half-mile. : \u25a0
Misty's Pride proved best in the fifth
nnd won by more than a length from
Rlßgg, on whom there was a heavy
• p^st piny. Instructor »howed Bpeed and
•"•t the "pace to the', stretch, but weak
<^!ied in the final drive and could finish
no bettor than third. There was a. big
play on Instructor, which forced his
odds down from 15 to S. Wee Lass, the
favorite, was unable to raise a gallop
and was never" prominent. The winner
was as good ac R to 1 In the betting
-and was piloted by A. Williams, the

been closer up with a stronger ride,
little Eddie Dugan being unable to do
the colt justice.
The bookmakers had a very bad day,
the outcome of the last race being
especially disastrous for them. Prac
tically all of the winners were well
played and place and show results also
broke very badly for the bookies. W.
IL Eagstrom was probably the largest
loser, quitting 52000 to the bad. Sev
eral others lost nearly as heavily.
Gossip of the Track
.It became known at Emeryville yes
terday that Rudolph Spreckels had can
celed the contract under which Jockey
Knapp was doing the riding for the
Sobre Vista stable, the sobriquet under
which tbe Sprecke'.s horses run.
Knapp's services were engaged by
Spreckela as a result of the J>oy*s vic
tory with Borghesl in the Thanksgiving
handicap. In the races which he has
since ridden for the Sobre Vista stable
Knapp has won but onee — with St Elm
wood. Jockey Graham was given the
mount on Borghesl yesterday and has
been engaged t* ride/feeveral other
mounts for the Spreckels stable this
week, but the arrangement is only of
a temporary nature.
The cancellation of his contract with
Spreckels may mark the passing of
Knapp as a leading jockey at Emery
ville. The boy's services appear to be
in little demand, and It is nearly a
fortnight since he has ridden a winner.
Jockey Mcßride is a bit stirred up
over the receipt of a couple of anony
mous postal" cards containing slurring
references to his efforts on some of his
recent mounts and has decided to take
a lay-off until such time as he can get
a better class of horses to ride than
he has had of late. Mcßride has had
more than his share of hard luck since
his suspension last winter, and has
many admirers who hope that the tide
will soon turn in his favor. The boy
is a capable rider and if negotiations
now pending, for his services go
through he will have better opportuni
ties than heretofore.
After having Kiven the boy a formal
hearing at the solicitation of his
friends the stewards of the Jockey
Club have:finally turned down the ap
plication of Jockey Borel for a license
to ride at Emeryville. The specific
ground on which the license was re
fused is not divulged, but the officials
deemed their action to be for the best
Interests of the turf.
Jockey Walter Miller's term of sus
pension will expire today and the pre
mier Jockey will be seen In the saddle
tomorrow. - Form players will be glad
to have him fesume ridingr as they
are always sure of a ride for the money
when he is up. if nothing else.
Jockey Eugene Hildebrand was seen
In the saddle at Emeryville yesterday,
for the first time In tveeks. He had the
mount on "Boots" Durnell'a Orchota,
cot away poorly and failed to Improve
his position to any extent. .. ,
David Boland. was claimed out of the
third race yesterday from C. C. - McCaf
ferty\by the Reality stable for. $825.
Enoch Wlshard. the noted New York
turfman and trainer 'for John A. Drake,
Is here for a week or two. He was a
visitor at the Emeryville track .yester
day. He will probably return to the
East \ r ia Los Angeles. -' -
Pinaud and Byronerdale have been
added to the schooling list on account
of bad behavior at the post on Satur
"Silver Bill. Rellly, an Eastern book
maker who has been operating at Los
Angeles, arrived from Southern Cali
fornia yesterday and will cut in at
Emeryville,, this week.
Yesterday was the fiftieth day 'of the
Emeryville meeting and marked, the
passing of exactly one-third of, the lo
cal racing season.
"The fact that Governor Hughes, in
his first message to the Legislature,
made no reference to the racetracks
has been well received by that portion
o£. the public Interested in the turf,"
6ays the New York Sun. "As a matter
of fact, the entire racetrack ' element
cast a big vote for Hughes at the re
cent election because of the persistent
attacks made upon. racing by his op
ponent. The opposition to racing,
which developed at Albany last year,
and which may crop up again during
the present. session of the Legislature,
Is conducted by persons "who do not
reside In the State of Xew York and
are known* as. professional performers.
The Jockey Club, meanwhile, has not
as yet shown muchl concern over the
situation. With" more than thirty stal
lions donated ,to'as many well-known
breeders of the State and nearly $300,-*
000 to be distributed among the various
agricultural societies, accruing from trie
State racing tax. the Jockey Club evi
dently feels confident of powerful back
ing at Albany when the proper time
arrives." c •*}&&&
"Should you tell one of those old fel
lows with a vivid. recollection of . the
days when races were • run In L heats of
four miles that there was only one
race at four miles, in' America in 1906.
and that a dash for the Thornton
Stakes at Oakland, and. further that
there were out of 7657 races run at
major and minor meetings only 139 at
distances longer than, one mile and a
quarter, and, that they were all dashes,
you would be more than apt to hear
somn things about 'degradation of the
sport* that would not be printable,".;re
marks the Chicago Racing Form.
"About the same time you could get
a lot of argument out of the fellow
who holds to the opinion that our two
year-olds are annually raced to death
by telling him that 1608 races for two
year-olds exclusively "were' run, and
that this was 'a fraction more than
22 per cent of. all the races of the year.
'"Whether, in conditioning ; races at
the shorter distances and for ' the
younger horses, we. are progressing, or
retrogading is a question about which
much has been "said and- written, and
one which I* largely a 'matter 'of per
sonal opinion. However.V: lt.' ls a. no
ticeable fact that' whenever there is a
race on the cards^ anywhere ;at ; two
mil ps or over there- is a more t general
outpouring. of . the' public and there .is
much ado about It 7 !; AH-of whlchkwould
seem to Indicate that; the Jong-distance
races are still popular.withT the public.
The secretaries say : that- they do not
programmer more " long-distance -races

to get ' horsemen' to : enter. 1 ":Th«

Woman's Auto Club Has Grievance
Against the Dealers' Association
Prospects are bright for. a track meet
with the ''\u25a0 University of Oregon here
some time in March. The Oregon man
ager bVoachedl the subject iii^ a letter
received by Graduate Manager \u0084-Sales, .-Sales
today, and -it is understood his terms
are looked upon favorably by Captain
Macfarland. : Trainer Moulton and the
majority of thestudent body. The Ore
gonians also , are desirous of arrang
ing a 1 s meet, with California while on
the trip and .this makes their visit-the
more certain, as it seizes to eliminate
any objecton to- the venture on' the
ground of Its financial risk.
Should. Oregon come south flhe would
no doubt prove a. foe^. worthy -of both
Stanford and -Berkeley. Th§ speedy
Kelly, .'holder of ' the world's; record of
9:3 seconds; In. the hundred:. Moullen.
the v fonnerL.lck:boy,"| in' tlie; pole -vault:
(Moores, " supposed to be the' equal" of
any. man _ on- the "coast in the hurdles,
and McKlnney, the giant weight man,
are but a few. of the. stars; which have
been developed "by "Hay ward at. Eugene.
"Stanford's 'prospects, are not at all
brightened by the announcement today
that, not only Cope of San Francisco,
who was expected; to return and par
ticipate in the dashes, would not regis
ter, . but that Rawles. the little whirl
wind" in " the quarter-mile, also would
not be seen on the track . this season.
Both were men^of .whom great things
were expected and,, the. announcement
of Rawles', determination to quit col
lege has thrown a damper on track en
thusiasts. The ; race between'Rawles
and Stanton in the quarter last spring,
which was prevented by the earth
quake, was r expected to hay* been one
of the best'ever seen In the West.

R. R. l'Hommedieu
There la" trouble In store for the
members of the Automobile Dealers'
Association of California. It l»not
the kind that will be airod in public,
but the married men of the association
will hear from it at meal time thrice
dally, with a reminder or two during
the evening. " The -members of ttie as
i sociatlon whose wives 'are members of
the California Woman's Automobile
Club will have to explain why. when
the association was seeking the co
operation of the clubs to make the rotn-
Ing 'show a success, the Woman's Club
was v not asked to appear publicly as
among the patrons. One of the offl- \u25a0
cers of the Woman's Club said yes
terday:: \u25a0
"It is strange that the Dealers' As
sociation should ask the Automobile
Club of California to help it out. while
our ' club "has been overlooked.' The
movement that started the agitatlo 1 for
a show was due to the action taken
byone of our dfflcers. The latter said
to some of the members of the trade
that if they were not going to have a
show.^this year the Woman's Club would
grlye one Itself. It -waa on this sug
gestion-that her ! ;husbahd ffot';6ut and
etlrre'd "up some of the. other members
ot- thetrade," with the"result'you,see. "
'"We are glad that the show is going
to be a success; and we are going' to
do all In our, power to Jielp. It alongv-
This is a selfish motive 6n ourpart, for
It: will make many more" members for
our ' club. " But I do think that we
might have been requested to help.
This -passing us by as if we were not
In existence, when In reality wo are re
sponsible for tlie show, la not courte
ous, to aaythe least. ... I think some
of the dealers realize that they, have
made a mistake."
President LeavltVof the Dealers' As
sociation, when asked concerning the
Woman's Club complaint, said:
"That's so. We have not thought
of the Woman's Club; but I hope its
members will realize the conditions
under which the show was started and
forgive. us for any oversight. We want
every one to boom the show, for If will
mean that It will help to make- the
automobile more popular. The next
time we will do better. It is our first
show, and we are ne w ' ax tne game.
We promise to bo;real good next year
and not forget the ladies."
The annual meeting of the Cali
fornia' Woman's Automobile Club will
take place during show week. 'The
event .will take the form of, a luncheon
to be held in the St. Francis on Thurs
day, February 21. By that time the
club \u25a0will be thoroughly reorganised and
the many events planned before the
fire will be programmed for the coming
; AlKof the floor space for the coming
automobile show -has been reserved. By
the division of space by the*commit
tee there will be twelve large areas of
1300 feot each on the main floor, while
there will be twenty-one along the
side of 600. feet 'each. Under the Oak
and Feir streets balconies will be the
space for the automobile accessory dis
plays and the. motor, '-bicycle exhibits.
There is tobe a meeting on "Wedhes
day;>evening in the .salesroom oTthe
Boj'er Motors Car Company to hold the
drawing.'for positions. All those* who
have "reserved space are requested' to
be present. \u25a0 It Is planned to cover the
floor'.wlth ]a. large canvas so : that It
will be.possible for the spectators to
roam around the building. It has been
found that the average floor of show
buildings gathers dust and dirt that -is
ruinous to. the dresses ot. the .fair sex.
It, is expected' that many evening gowns
"wllll be worn at .the .show. The-.'il
lnminatlons of the buildlns: will be out
of the ordinary. It will be lighted by
3500. electric bulbs, not counting the
big arc lights.

SAL.INAS, Jan. 14.— Judge F- C. Saf^
; gent of the Monterey County Superior
Court this afternoon handed down a de
cision affirming the constitutionality of
the act of the Legislature of 1305 In,
regard to the use of a bicycle. a.uto- '
mobile or oilier vehicle temporarily
without the permission of the owner.
The rase was that of " tho. People vs.
Samuel Manaton. on appeal from the
j Justice Court of Pajaro. The- point
[ made': by the defense was -that the law
did not apply to the use of an auto
mobile or other vehicle by a chauffeur
or other employe of the owner. Judge
Sargent rul*>d that the statute applied
alike to every person using a machine
wlthou.t tho owner's permission and
Qismissed the appeal..
This decision is important to auto
mobile, clubs and owners. /of 'vehicles
(.throughout. California-- Jtt"H»r. tor- first
