Entries for Today.
SALEM, Or., Sept. IS. (Special.) The
drastic punishment handed out to W. G.
Durfee and the mare he was driving yes
terday. Sweet Marie, seemed to have a
wholesome effect on many of the drivers,
and today, with the exception of the drive
that Hartnagel gave St. Patrick in the
second heat of the "2:30-class trot, for
which he was set down one heat, every
race and heat was fought out to a fin
ish. The day's sport opened with the con
solation 2:17 race for nonwlnners in the
Greater Salem stake, -which was won by
Vision and which took three heats to de
cide. St. Patrick, Getaway and Lord
Kitchener had to go to the distance, five
heats, before the race was decided. It
was in this race that Driver Hartnagel
bumped into disfavor -with the judges.
It looked as If he had a chance to win
the second heat with St Patrick, so Hart
nagel was unseated fo? laying up, and
J. E. Irwin was put up behind the horse.
St. Patrick got away well and was lead
ing Lord Kitchener down the back stretch
when he broke and fell back and finished
last. The judges reseated Hartnagel in
the next heat, but the best he could do
with St. Patrick was to finish behind
Getaway, who won the last heat and the
Tomorrow is the last day, and just as
soon as the last race is over many of
the horses, both running and harness,
will be loaded on the cars and shipped
to Portland. The horsemen have been
looking forward to the coming race meet
at Portland with a great deal of Interest,
and already entry blanks for the dif
ferent races have been filled out here
during the past week. All of the Cali
fornia horses, save Sweet Marie, will be
seen at Irvlngton some time during the
week, and among them will be Reta H.
Zolock and Tidal "Wave.
Vision, the big bay eon of -Vanquish, af
ter finishing back seventh and almost get
ting the flag in the first heat of the 2:17
pace consolation " for nonwlnners In " the
Salem stake, won the race by taking the
two succeeding heats. High Ball, on ac
count of his uncertain temper, again lost
a race that should have been his at all
odds. Driven by Hogaboom the gelding
showed to a better advantage than he
did when driven by Sanford. He was
good natured when the field of eight was
sent off In the first heat, and after get
ting off In seventh position he raced
around Bensarba and Rajah in the back
stretch. At the half he was two lengths
In front, and he could have finished a city
block ahead of Bensarba,- who was sec
ond. In the second and third hedt Hogaboom,
try as he would, could not bring High
Ball up. "Both times they were sent
away with the black horse trailing back
ten lengths. He finished fifth In the sec
ond heat and was second in the third.
In the last heat High Ball, with a speed
that was magnificent to behold, kept com
ing on, passing the trailers as. though they
were anchored to the track. 1 the three
quarters he was on even terms with the
leaders. Vision and Bensarba, and was
spreading sail for Vision, who had to be
driven for every ounce that was in him
by.Lindsey In order to win. The' mile was
traveled In 2:124. 2:134, 2:154.
The two running events were really the
most Interesting of the day. Adnoor,
winning the first, a 4-furlong affair that
was a bruising race from start to finish.
Sally Goodwin, the heavily played favor
ite, was first In the seven-furlong race.
Starter Hogaboom had considerable
trouble In getting the runners away in
the firet race, but when he sent them off
they were In a bunch. Classes got away
in front with Aurora Band, Cllvoeo next.
Rounding the turn for home Adnoor
moved "from third position and showed In
front at the seven-eighths and was bat
tling gamely with Aurora for first posi
tion. Williams with heels and whip be
gan riding the Adnoor horse, and he fin
ished .first at the wire. Sally Goodwin
was back in fifth place, and did not enter
the running until turning in for home.
McGlees eent her after Rasp, and by a
hard ride sent his mount In front and
took a safe length winning by a half

PATCH NEARLY BREAKS RECORD.
Heavy Trade at tke Last at Read
ville Tires Him Greatly.
READyiLLE, Mass., Sept. 18. It seems
quite probable that but for the slowness of
the footing In the last 200yards the cham
pion harness horse, Dan Patch, would
have succeeded in his attempt today to
lower his record of a mile in 1:59, made at
Brighton Beach, a few weeks ago. Paced
by one runner, the quarter was made In
30 seconds, and the half In 0:594. From
there on he had the benefit of two run
ners, and reached the three-quarters in
The record then seemed to be trembling,
but on getting into the stretch a heavy
bit of track was experienced, which tired
the pacer so much that he reached the
wire In two minutes fiat. It was generally
believed that had Dan Patch been favored
with the same track conditions-as those
prevailing on Monday, when Major Del
mar made his effort at the trotting record,
the pacing record would have been broken.

HERRERA TO FIGHT MEMSIC.
Bishop Finds Place Where Munici
pal Reformers Trouble Not.
Biddy Bishop has found a town that
will let him fight his Mexican and all he
wants now Is a man who will conduct
I the other part of .the debate In which Her
j rera wants to figure. The Stance is open.
to George Memsic, of Portland, and Sam
Goodman Is only awaiting acceptance of
favorable terms before he turns the local
lad looi-e to eat up the Mexican. .
Memsic Is probably the best man that
Hererra has ever stood up before and
the offer of Bishop to let the Mexican go
In shows pretty clearly that Biddy Is
yearning for a chance to get at the gate
receipts again. Memslc's record Is as
clean of defeats as a score board Is of
figures before the game begins. The Port
land lad has had the going all his own
way in the past and should be able to
at least be on his feot when the last
round Is over.
Bishop wired yesterday that he wanted
Hererra to take on the Portland boy and
fixed the time as October 2. That Is too
early for Memsic, and Goodman will ask
when Bishop's supplementary letter Is be
fore him, that the date be postponed four
days. Memsic hurt his thumb at the time
he was spoiling Louis Long's physique,
and the digit has not had time to -heal. He
will need four days longer to put It In
shape to wear the thumb piece of a glove
and Bishop will have to give way to this
demand If his protege Is to gain a real
Memsic, too, will have to be granted a
little time to work off the surplus avoir
dupois that he has accumulated since his
last stretch of hard work. H did not
have to extend himself even then hard
enough to last long, but In the meantime
he has built up from 129 to 142 pounds.
Biddy Bishop has asked that the men
weigh In at 6 P. M. on the day of the
fight with 130 pounds as the limit. This
Is not to the liking of- Goodman, and. If
Bishop gets the match, he will have to
allow the men to get onto the scales at
noon. This Is not a., serious point, and
Is likely to be conceded, thongh It will
do Memsic a world of good to get that
extra six hours' rest before the mill.
Memsic has shown heretofore that he
can get down to weight without losing
any time In the performance, and the 12
pounds of surplus fat does not worry
Goodman's little fighting machine a bit.
He took off 17 pounds within lldays when
he was getting ready for his last appear
ance inside the rdpes and with two weeks
In which to slough the 12 pounds he will
not need it should be easy going.
The approach of unfavorable weathev
does not look good for the kind of train
ing that Memsic Is good at, for outdoor
work may be cut off at any time by the
wetness. In this the four days of extra
time will come In handy to the Portland
Biddy Bishop has had his Mexican in
condition for some time. He brought him
to Porfland In a fit condition and hur
ried him away to the burg on the Sound
when the lights went out on the game
here. Biddy went north looking for'
something easy to bring In the shekels
and expected to find the northern sports
hungry for a good look at the Mexican
In action'. Whether he found it or not
there is no doubt that the Turner-Sieger
fight revived his hopes and now, If Mem
sic will only take on the man from
Bishop's stables some Seattle fight pro
moter will look after the rest.
Though there has been no Intimation as
to the probable agreement on this point,
Portland fight specialists believe that
Bishop and Goodman will get together on
a proposition to call the thing a draw If
both men are on their feet at the end of
the fight. Twenty rounds will be the limit
and It Is believed here that Memsic can
keep his hands up that long before Her
rera, The Mexican has been favored hereto
fore In numerous ways, some of them re
sembling a disposition on the part of the
other factor In the tight to allow Herrera
to reach In and jab at his will. But all
of the men Herrera has met have walked
Into him and the Mexican has been able to
fight on the defensive. It Is likely that,
when he mixes with Memsic he will have
to start an exploration expedition of his
own and that Memsic will constitute the
reception committee portion of the func
tion. In any event, the Portland lad is
not going to get any the worst of It in.
