Out Horses Which SulU La
dles' Day Today.
Irvington track was never in Its history
more attractive than It was yesterday af
ternoon, when the gates were thrown open
for the opening meeting of the Multnomah
Fair Association. Never in the history of
racing in Portland was there such a
crowd, never were races more thoroughly
enjoyed, and it is not saying more than
is true to state that never before were all
of the events won by horses that should
have won. There were fully 5000 people in
the grandstand, betting ring and in car
riages Inside the course. The day was
Ideal, and the track, considering its long
neglect, was exceptionally fast. It was a
day, too, when favorites ruled and won.
End the layers of odds through their gen
erosity wound up the first day of the meet
ing a bit loser, but satisfied, for they han
dled during the few hours of racing ?10.
500, which shows for itself that Portland
was and is ripe for races conducted fairly
Adnoor "Wins Hunt Club Cup.
The crowd was early in arriving, and
pent some time in Inspecting the fat
stock show and the Tine blooded horses.
The first race, the Hunt Club affair of half
a mile, was won by E. N. Lazarus on Fos
ter Jones' Adnoor. Ed O'Brien, on Big
Dutch, was second, and Mr. McGrath on
Bed Spinner was tbjrd. Mr. Lazarus gave
Adnoor a splendid ride, and the bay geld
ing took kindly to the rider and the going,
and when called upon he came to the front
with a burst of speed that was pleasing to
watch. Starter McCarthy sent the five
starters away to a pretty start. Big Dutch
showed In front first, but Mr. Lazarus kept
Adnoor in a comfortable position, allowing
Big Dutch to set the pace. Rounding Into
the turn. Mr. Lazarus settled down and
begin to ride the Adnoor horse out. and he
finished fully three lengths in the lead.
Mr. O'Brien rode Big Dutch out, but he
closed up like an old-fashioned jack-knife
in front of the grandstand. The distance
and the weight was too much for him, al
though he made a pretty race of it for
more than half the journey. Mr. McGrath
was a close third with Red Spinner. The
handsome silver cup, the trophy which
went to the winning rider, was presented
to Mr. Lazarus last night by the officials
of the association.
Sulky Prince Tom Is Left.
The work of Starter McCarthy was the
best ever wen at Irvington. In both the
harness events and in the running events
he got the horses away quickly and al
ways well lined up. In the first race, the
2:18 pace, he had some trouble in getting
the six starters away. Prince Tom drew
the pole and he refused to come up with
the rest. After scoring several times Mc
Carthy had "Webb to bring the tmlky son
of Tom V. up on the outside, and he sent j
them away in a bunch. Bensarba twas a j
heavily played favorite. ' but he did not
finish better than sixth. Prince Tom '.
moved past the bunch In rounding the first
turn, with Portia Knight close up and
County Attorney, Polka Dot and Maple
mont back several lengths. The Mrs. was
nowhere, and was so far back that she got
the flag when Prince Tom won the heat.
In the next two heats there was consider
able shifting in the betting, and, while
many fancied Prince Tom, Bensarba ruled
the favorite and he won the next two
heats and the race. Prince Tom refused
the going in the last heat, and Mr. McCar
thy, after giving him several chances, sent
the horses away, leaving Prince at the
post The crowd had grown tired of the
sulky tactics of the horse, and when Mc
Carthy gave the word he was roundly ap
plauded. Driver Webb finally got Prince
going, but he was far behind that the
flag was dropped on him. "Webb, after the
race, announced to the judges that he
would protest the race, but there Is little
chance of his -protest having any effect, for
he was shown every consideration possi
ble. Bclndl Wins in StrnlRht Heats.
BeladI, the sweet-tempered daughter of
Chehalis. won the 2:23 trot in two straight
heats. She was a heavily played favorite
and won practically as she pleased. Harry
Marvin, another horse of uncertain tem
per, failed to be benefited by drawing the
pole, and after several Ineffectual attempts
to get them off he had to be contented
with bringing up the rear, the rest being
all on even terms. Mark Hannabus made
a brilliant flash for the lead, and was in
front by several lengths entering the back
stretch. Beladi was after the old horse,
and at the half she moved past him. H.
II. H. was back ten lengths, with Bay
Leaf close up. They passed the three
quarters in the order named. Beladi was
so far in front that Rutherford pulled up
Mark Hannabun and H. H. H. took turn
about In battling for second place, and
finally divided second and third money.
Bay Leaf being contented with fourth.
Harry Marvin and Getaway were dls
tanced in the first heat.
rtnujiiiipr Events Are Lively.
No races anywhere could have been bet
ter than the five running events, and.
with the exception of the ride that Mad
dox gave Thisbe in the la.t race on the
card, every race was won by the best
horse. Maddox brought Thisbe in third.
but with any kind of a rider the mare
would hav? given a better account of
her? lf. Undoubtedly V" judges saw how
he handled Thisbe near th'.- three-quarter
pole, and he w'U get "his" for another
such a ride. Aimoncer. liked well ly the
public and a very speedy horse, was
given a good ride by McC es. and won
handily. Clivoso got away v.xth. but soon
moved up third and lay there until enter
ing the stretch, with Hirtle close up. The
finish brought the crowd to their feet, and
it was so close that only the judges could
decide upon the winner. For a S-furlong
race, the start was excellent. Queen T.
had the speed, and she showed in front
right at the start. The battle for second
place was a pretty one. but Judge Thomas,
who holds the world's record, ftood the
gruelling better than Classis, and beat
him for the position by a length. Bul
garian was beaten off, but at that the poor
showing he made shows that he has no
business in such fast company.
Chub Wins the Mile.
Scratches reduced the best race of the
day to five starters. This was the mile
handicap, and the talent was at sea in Its
efforts to pick the winner. It finally set
tled upon Ohio Girl, because of her record
breaking stunt at Salem. At that the
others did not lack friends. The horses
broke In a compact bunch; and all were
in the running throughout ' the journey.
Chub, a hot favorite also, was badly cut
off at the first turn, but made up his
ground quickly, and, when David made
bis move on the last turn, he had the race
won. Chuo won f very easily by three
lengths, and in a hard drive Ohio Girl
managed to beat Burdock a'short head for
second position. It was a race that
thrilled the crowd, and it gave the winner
a hearty bit of cheering and applause. The
time, 1:43, was very good, considering the
The last event of the day was a six-
furlong affair, and the talent, as If to
make the cleaning up good and hard,
plunged on Remark, and the speedy son
of Cheviot did not disappoint his backers.
He was away in front, and no horse in
the race got close to his colors. David
rode Sold Lichtensteln hard all the way,
but Remark was out of danger, and he
finished second and beat Thisbe by two
good lengths. The 2-year-old Resigned
was slightly interfered with or she might
have made a better showing. She was by
a year too ycung for the company she was
in, but, on account of the SS -pounds she
carried, many thought she had a chance
for a place in the money.
From a social standpoint, the meeting
was also a success. In the grandstand, in
the boxes and in the carriages were many
of Portland's social leaders. Among the
many prominent folk present were:

SALEM. Or.. Sept. 20. (To the Editor.)
The Oregon State Fair is over and the
universal verdict Is that it wag a success,
although held fully 25 days too early to
secure a full exhibit of fruits and hops.
It seems to the writer that the elements
of this success consist of two main
causes, which are related to each other
as cause and effect, and these are: First,
"the wide range of forage plants intelli
gent industry can produce from the soil
and climate of Western Oregon, which,
second. Insures the breeding and feeding
to perfection of a corresponding wide
range of the best lines of domestic anl- i
mals the industries of Europe have fur- j
nlshed to America. In limiting the area '
of this demonstration to Western Oregon
it goes without saying that It applies also
to the Northwestern coast counties of Cal
ifornia and all of Western Washington,
and, judging by the forage and fruit ex
hibit made by Farmer Lackenby, of Union
County, the cattle of W. O. Minor, of
Morrow, and the sheep of the Baldwin
Stock & Land Company, of Crook Coun
ty, It may not be many years until the
Upper Columbia Valley, by the aid of
Irrigation, equals the west of the Cascade
range In many lines of forage crops and
A little examination Into the main cause
of the success of the fair just closed will
show. I think that it lies in the county
exhibits. Taking those receiving awards,
they give a not quite complete exposition
of the agricultural capabilities of that
portion of Oregon occupied as homes at
the founding of the State Agricultural
Society in 1S61. But Multnomah, Colum
bia, Clatsop and Tillamook, then in the
woods, and Jackson, Josephine, Coos and.
Curry, mainly mining camps, and Lin
coln, unthought of. the success of the
late fair suggests the Importance of In
ducing all of these to make exhibits next
year, and to have them all arranged In
a permanent building on the Lewis and

Whether this suggestion be adopted or
not, there are, In the writer's opinion,
two additional stimulants that may be
added to Insure further and more perma
nent success to general development:
First, give recognition to individual ef
fort contributing to county exhibits.
Second, publish in convenient form tho
awards of judges with their names and
remarks. This to be regarded as tho
most important duty of the secretary of
the Board of Agriculture, and duly signed
by him as a correct copy of the awards
and the history of any appeal to the
To illustrate the importance of the first
suggestion. I take the cases of the two
most prominent exhibitors of Polk Coun
ty, Mrs. Wolf and J. B. Stump. They
together cover for their county the two
main sources of the present lines of the
present development of agriculture and
stock breeding. They are of a community
which. from Its beginning, rated honor
before money, and. though the writer did
not see the lady who with her daughter's
assistance won first place In this contest
of districts, can any one Imagine they
do not rate the honor higher than th
money award? The Oregonian well says:
"Every one living from the land ought to
produce something of excellence " To
that I add every one producing anything
of excellence exhibited as a state or coun
ty fair is entitled to the publicity of hav
ing done so. It is not probable that all.
If any. of the county exhibits were tho
products of the exhibition. In sueh a
case tho mere mention of the name of
those contributing to the successful ex
hibit would be sufficient.
I turn now to the career of J. B.
Stump, who became a pioneer of rape and
other field crops as an essential basis of
successful stock breeding. Does anyone
think the money value of his labors Is
the highest reward Mr. Stump receives?
The writer has not asked him the ques
tion direct, but yet is satisfied that tho
honor of having his farm visited by teach
ers and pupils of the State Agricultural
College and Experimental Station has a
higher value in Mr. Stump's mind than
the xnoney value of his many winnings
at the Oregon State Fair and would rato
the authenticated history of those win
nings as family history more precious
Being one of tho past published records
among the foremost winners of awards
at past State Fairs, I feel safe In saying
that four-fifths of the best stockralsers
in all lines of stock rate the honor and
publicity higher than the money awarded.
In several classes of stock the money
awards do not pay for the time, labor
and cost of exhibiting, so that the cheese
pairing, withholding of herd or flock or
sweepstake winning because of lack of
competition over which the exhibitor can
not have control is to dampen public
spirit. In several lines of valuable stock
there Is not nor has been for several years
competitive exhibits In Oregon. In others
there has never yet been a full exhibit In
one ownership. To keep a pure line In
either case Is as costly in proportion as
to the owner of a full competitive flock
or herd, and the presence of the breed
is always an object lesson. J. MINTO.
