Po big is the course that a casual visitor glancing over it from a point of vantage hardly realizes that a regiment of men is laboring there. Yet a trip around, the track and a careful count of the work men proves the surprising elite of the working force. An investment of 395.0C0, Including prize money, is represented to date, according to figures compiled by Treasurer Adolph Stors. Considerable more money will be ipent in finishing the enterprise and mak ing it complete In every detail for thi accommodation of the crowds, so that when the elimination trials begin Satur day, Jly S, Just three weeks from yes terday, tba whole project will stand it backers at least 1100,030. they assert.

WORTH OVER TEN THOUSAND CINCINNATI. June 12. Itoyal II, an English bred colt, owned by Jefferson Livingston of Chicago and New York, won the thirty-second renewal of the La ton ia derby at the Latonla, Ky., race track today, by a full length of Dortch, who was tiring rapidly toward the end after being a prominent contender the better part of the. way. The race was worth 310.125 to the win ner, and he paid 34.SO for a 32 ticket In the pari mutual betting. Takes Premier Honors. Royal II. bay son of Your Majesty Lady Ethel, proved himself worthy of carrying off the premier honors that Latonla has to offer. Off well to a per fect start. Jockey Gans rated him along under slight restraint until the first three quarters of a mile had ben traversed. When straightened out on the back stretch Gans let out a few wraps and Royal II responded immediately, and gradually closed In on his field. Gans worked htm into third place passing the starting post, and at the mile and a quarter Goose on Tetan, noted that Royal II was on his horse withers. Then came the real battle for suprem acy. But the gameness of the English colt was not to be denied and the horses passed the final eighth pole nose to nose, with the stout-hearted Dortch only a head behind. Little by little Royal II was seen, to push forward, and at the final sixteenth pole was In a commanding position, and won by a length from the tiring Tetan, who was the same distance ahead of Dortsch. Day Is Fair. The day was fair, the track was fast and the crowd was probably the largest that ever wended its way through the Latonla gates. Royal II was favorite in the betting, with Emerson Cochran a second choice. The latter was never a serious con tender after the first half-mile, and fin ished last. Tetan was an outsider In the betting and was reported to have been withdrawn earlier In the day, but owner Perkins decided to start him at the last moment, and the horse paid 322.30 for a 1 ticket to pla.ee and SM0 for a 33 ticket I for ahow. Lortsch paid 34.30 for a 32 for , sh?w I , 1. Senators Bunch Hits And Beat Pale Sox WASHINGTON, June 12.

Ae the end of the five frames each and every athlete was com pletely on the blink, as It la said chasing the cork ball around the water Is Quite exhaustive. Mayor Dohlman was on hand to chuck the first ball, just like In a league ball Kame. But as the game Is played In the water and the various players stand on floats six feet square, the mayor refused to take any chances and be threw the pill from the dock, where there was no chance of skidding Into the brinv deep. The game is played Just like base ball, except, as before mentioned, the players stand on floats and swim after the ball and fro rnbasn to base. Thinking that the batters would knock the ball too far, some far-seeing youth sawed off the bats. Then it was discovered that with the short sticks the ball couldn't be poled much farther than second base. Pete Wendell, formerly swimming In structor at the Central Young Men's Christian association. Is coach of the Omaha team, and he swears ths game to be played this afternoon will be no tie. Wendell has a hunch the Omaha crowd will hammer the daylights out of the Bluffs crew. Wendell plays centerfield, as that is the position where the fast swimmer must be when a natatorial Sam Crawford takes a healthy swing, a The game this afternoon will be called at 3 o'clock, and the regulation slse bats will bu used so that the oujfleld can do a little hustling.
