FEW FAVORITES WINNING.
iiquorum Ilex Makes Money for Ills
Ifrlends, and a Xumbcr of
Prominent Horses Arc En-
tcrcd for Derby Day.
By Charles L. McCarthy.
SEATTLE. Wash.. June 10. The past
week? has been productive of some good
racing at the Meadows, although the
weather, as your London turf patron
would say, has been "beastly."
Last Saturday was a miserable day,
and what promised to b high-class rac
ing turned Into procctwlons. The ladles'
plate was, of course, the feature of the
card, and resulted In the downfall of
Ebel Thatcher, an odds-on favorite, who
looked Uko a certain winner to the
form students. But the big Pirate of
Penzance colt had been sick since ar
riving at the Meadows, and was clearly
not at himself.
A great many of the big betters steered
clear of "Ebel Thatcher on account of
the prohibitive odds, and as a result
Equorum Rex was the heaviest backod
horse of the two. The latter is a nice
looking filly by Brutus, and was perfect
ly at home In the slushy track that pre
vailed Saturday. She took the track at
the rise of the barrier, and the end of
each furlong found her further In front
of her field.
Ebel Thatcher had no speed at any
stage of the race, and at the finish -was
In third place, over ten lengths behind
Equorum Rex, who won pulled up by
eight lengths from ladora, a filly be
longing to Dr. Rowell. who has one of
the largest stables hore. The race whs
worth $525 to the winner. In addition to
a handsome silver cup. Gill Summers,
the owner of Equorum Rex, and his
friends, must have won handsomely on
the race, as the filly was backed down
from an oponlng quotation of 3 to 1 to
6 to E.
Saturday's Best Race.
The best race on Saturday's card, from
a speculative standpoint, was the -fur-long
selling race, which fell to Lurene,
also from Gill Summers' stable, and. In
cidentally, it was Lurene's third victory
during the meeting Ccrro Santa and
Oronte opened equal "favorites at 2 to 1
each, and both received considerable sup
port. Toupee, the third choice, was the
paddock tip, and was well backed. The
others all drifted back in the betting,
and at the close 7 to 1 could be had
There was nothing to the race as a con
test, Lurene taking the lead before the
field had straightened Into the back
stretch, and led all the way, winning as
she pleased by four lengths from Toupee.
With an even break Oronte might pos
sibly have given the winner an argu
ment, as he closed up a world of ground
and was running over horses at the fin
ish, but third was the best he could do.
Step Around hit the books hard in the
last race, as she was backed from 4 to
2 to 1 This was Step Around's second
victors, and as she won again on Wed
nesday her three victories have given
the stable of T. H. Boyle a good start.
Step Around has always been a clevor
mare In Seattle, she seeming to like the
Mrs. Hull's Iron Horse.
Mrs. L. Hull, the owner of Dorlce. evi
dently thinks she has an iron horse in
the daughter of Sain and Jennie McFar
land. She made her first start on the
third day of the meeting, and ran again
on the fourth, sixth, seventh, eighth,
ninth and tenth days. This kind of rac
ing will eventually make a wreck of
this speedy young mare.
Prince Magnet has been the medium
of two "almost" killings recently. On
Monday he was heavily backed at 20 to
1. with an unknown jockey. Burghart. in
the saddle, and led his field to the final
sixteenth, when he tired and was beaten
easily by Indicate.
Thursday his owners put up a more
fashionable jockey in the person of
"handrldlng" Kelly. On this occasion the
colt opened at 3 to 1. and after he had
receded to 4 to 1 In the betting, the money
poured in, and at post time few of the
bookmakers were willing to lay 2 to 1
against his chances.
Kelly got the colt away flying, and
quickly opened up a gap of three lengths
on his field. As the field straightened
into the stretch It looked a certainty
that Prince Magnet would win as he
pleased, but he tired perceptibly In the
final slxteonth and was unable to with
stand the cyclonic rush of Lady Klspar,
and second was the best he could do.
Tweiity-to-One Shot Wins.
Moskoto livened matters tip a little on
Monday by winning the third race in a
A TIP TO THE WORKING MAN
hard drive with odds of 20 to 1 posted
against him. A good many profited by
Uosketo's victory, and he was the re- !
cipienc of considerable applause as be '
cantered back to the stand to unsaddle.
The fair sex turned out in largo num
bers on Tuesday, "ladles' day." It
showered very frequently during the day,
but this did not seem to dampen the en
thusiasm of the women to any extent.
There was plenty of excitement con
nected the races. Syphon Girl furnished
the first feature by losing to Bellona by
a nose in a driving finish. Minder, who
rode Syphon Girl, was overconfident, and
this cost him the race, as bad he come
on about his business lie could not have
lost. The defeat cost the favorite play
ers a considerable sum. as the marc was
heavily backed at 3 to S.
Vancouver Makes Money.
The Vancouver delegation brought off
a fair-sized coup with Carmeietta In the
socondi She was heaviy backod at 6 to
1. and won cleverly after a hard drive
to the last sixteenth pole.
Captain Caine, one of the Fair Associa
tlon directors, won handsomely by tho
victory of Educate in the third race, get
ting 7 to 1 for a big bet.
The Vundevaitter hanatcan at six fur
longs was the feature of the card, and
resulted in a olever victors' for Funns"
side. making her third successive -win
at the mooting. This marc has a big
following among local racegoers, and she
was backed into favoritism, although
Tocolow had the honor when the odds
wero first posted. Fuanyside led all the
way and easily stood ott tho determined
challenge of Oronte at the end. The
time, 1:16. was very fast, considering
the condition of the track.
W. P. Magrane and his friends won a
small fortune Wednesday on Ed Lll
burn. The chestnut oolt was superbly
handled by Otis, and after trailing his
field to the stretch he came down the
middle of the track and won driving by
a length from Rodolfo. who closed
strong on the extreme outside.
Gloomy Gus !No Snap.
Gloomy Gus, a prominent Derby candi
date, did not make a. very favorable im
pression at his second appearanco dur
ing the meeting. He looked to be in a
soft spot, and the big betters eagerly
accepted 1 to 2 against his chances. He
took the load on the backstrotch, and
galloped along in front all the way
to the last sixteenth, when Edrodun
challenged, and it took Jockey Herbert's
best efforts to land him a winner by a
short head. Willie Fitzgerald, a midget
Jockey, was astride Ed rod us, and had
he been able to help his mount any he
would have come nearer winning.
The sixth race on Thursday resulted In
one of the most exciting finishes ever
seen in the Northwest. The race was
at a mile, and Eleven Bella and Golden
Ivy ran head and head to the home
turn, when they were challenged by Ca
nejo. It was nip and tuck through the
entire length of the stretch, but Ivy
Powell, astride Golden Ii-y. outgeneraled
and outrode tho other boys and landed
the bay mare winner by a nose, while the
other two finished but a head apart.
King: County Stakes Up.
The stake feature for this Saturday la
the King County selling stakes -at sir
furlongs, value $700. Nearly all the best
sprinters here are entered In this stake,
and it should furnish a fine contest.
Saturday, June 17, is Derby Day. and
the association is making preparations
to handle the biggest crowd In the his
tory of the track. Following the prece
dent set two years ago, a good-sized dele
gation of Portlanders will probably at
tend. A field of about seven will prob
ably go to the post, and should furnish
a good contest, as tho most prominent
of the cligibles are well matched.

LIU DILLON IS FAT
Trainer Doble Finally Gets
Flesh on Mare.
LONG ROAD WALKS DID IT
Much Is Expected of Sweet Marie,
Another Promising California
Horse, During the Com- "v
While the light harness racing season
is yet a couple of months away, drivers
and owners are of the opinion that Lou
Dillon, the California marc, will be able
to reduce her record.
Bud Doble. the veteran driver and
trainer, worked the mare all last Winter
in California, with this end in view.
Dobic's first efforts with the mare was
directed towards putting flesh on her.
His task was a hard one. because Lou
Dillon Is very high strung and cxtrcmoly
"nervous. Doble, after months of patient
road driving, got the mare so that she
would loaf along tho roads like an old
plow horse, and when he accomplished
this, Lou Dillon began to take on flesh.
She stood the journoy Bast In splendid
shape, and is already going great guns.
Blvals to Sweet 31arlc.
Sweet Marie is another California turf
candidate whoso turf performances will
be closely watched this season, and there
are several horses that are talked of as
likely to drop into Sweet Marie's class
this year. Lisonjere is one of these. He
was a whirlwind for speed at the close
of his campaign last Fall, but ho is still
eligible to tho 2:03 class, while both Sweet
Marie and Tiverton took marks better
than 2:03 last season. George G.. the
handsome California gelding that Goers
marked in 2Mi last year. Is another
that Is coming to the front as a possible
free-for-all class performer. He Is easily
the best trotter at the Memphis track,
and Geers. who Is conservative to a de
gree, openly says that he looks for the
gelding to beat 2:05, when everything Is
just right for tho effort.
Geers once had a world's champion
trotter In The Abbot, a gelding, and as
ho now rates George G. right alongside
of tho son of Chimes. It will be seen that
the horse must have shown himself some
thing out of the ordinary. Last Sum
mer George G. was raced when his man
ners were not all they should have been,
nor was he ready to go the clip he was
compelled to maintain in the company
that met him at each town. After winning
the first heat of the Massachusetts Stake
at Boston, he was not dangerous In tho
race, and in the last beat or two all that
Geers tried to do was to beat the dis
tance flag with him.
A California harness racing association
has announced a selling race for trotters
and the result will be watched with un
usual Interest. The race Is on the pro
gramme for the meeting to be held in
Fresno in July. The purse is 55W and the
winner must be offered for sale at the
close of the race and started at the
owner's bid of 5K0. If the horse Is sold
for any more than that amount, one-half
the amount in excess of COO will go to
the owner and the remaining half to tho
association. The purpose of a race of this
kind is to afford horses which are out
classed by their records In regulation
purse events an opportunity to race with
a fair show of winning some part of the

better appeared and nine with records
ranging from 2:95 to 2:M. The outlay of
money represented by the horses and

It is stated that George H. Ket chain,
breeder and owner of Cresceus, 1X, will

One of the greatest match races on the
turf took place In 1SD1. when Tenny met
Longstrcet at Morris Park. It was a mile
and a quarter race and Longstrcet won.
Both carried 128 pounds and the purse
The same year Kingston and Van Burea
met in Chicago for and the former
great horre won by throe lengths over the
mile and a sixteenth route.
In 1SS3 Domino and Dobbins ran a dead
heat la Coney Island. It was a six fur
longs event and was. run in 1:122-5. In
any Portland business house.
October of the same year To Tamblen
defeated Lamplighter in a mile and an
eighth race for 35X The race was run
It " was followed by a special sweep
stakes, in which To Tamblen, Lamp
lighter and Clifford ran for a stake of
XS000. The distance of the race was a
mile and a quarter and Clifford won It
In 2:034. At that time match and special
races were popular--and seemingly more
catered to than at the present time.
Domino and Clifford met at a-mile in
1SH at Coney Island, and Domino scored
in 1:33 2-5. The same year was run one
of the greatest 3-year-old matches on
record. It was a contest for a purse of
$5003. and at a mile and an eighth, weight
for age. It resulted in one of the most
sensational struggles of the turf, and the
judges called It a dead heat.
Domino was ridden by Fred Taral and
Doggett had the leg- up on Henry of Na
varre. Somo of the greatest betting ever
done in the ring was on-tbis race. Riley
Grannan alone acceptde $50,000 on Domino
at "3 to B, although the prevailing odds
were 1 to 2.
Domino led by a length for three-quarters
of a mile, when Doggett brought
Henry of Navarre up, and the pair ran
exactly together, and the dead heat re
sulted. Afterwards. In October of the same year,
a special for Henry of Navarre and Domi
no, 3-year-olds, and Clifford, 4-year-old,
was run at Morris Park. It was a- mile
and an eighth race. Domino again led
for the first five furlongs, when Henry
of Navarre drew up and won by three
quarters of a length from Clifford, which
beat Domino by ten lengths. In this
race the 3-year-olds carried 113 pounds
and Clifford bad up 122 pounds.
Probably the greatest race ever run in
this country was the special match be
tween Salvator and Tenny. They engaged
in a turf struggle at Coney Island in ISO
that proved one of the hardest-fought
battles In the history of racing. Pictures
of the finish poor pictures, it is true
still adorn sporting resorts. It added to
tho Ilterautre of the turf. The story of
that race, which one may hear almost
any day In any school of oratory, is one
that makes the blood run a little faster,
says an exchange.
The Salvator-Tcnny race is the model.
It is often regretted that there are so few
Imitations. The events leading up to the
race made it all the moro interesting. The
story is still fresh in the minds of most
Salvator beat Tenny in the Suburban.
The latter was unruly at the post and
failed to make his best showing. D. T.
Pulslfer. his owner, said he could beat
Salvator. J. B. Haggin, owner of Salva
tor. said he could not. The match re
sulted seven days after the running of
Isaac Murphy piloted Salvator and
"Snapper" Garrison rode the swayback.
They carried 122 pounds each, and the dis
tance was a mile and a quarter. The
owners put up $5000 each and the club
The story of how Salvator led at a ter
rific pace and had a lead of three lengths
in tho stretch is not an old one. The re
telling of how Tenny gradually cut down
that distance in the run to the wire, how
be gradually gained Inch by inch, how
both jockeys displayed their most dexter
ous and artistic skill, and how Tenny
drew up. but just failed to reach his rival,
who won by a nose. Is never tiresome.
Harvard's Ncro Shortstop.
W. C Matthews, the negro shortstop of
the Harvard baseball team, who played
end on the football eleven, has signed a
contract to play professional baseball with
the Burlington. Vt., team this Summer.
Matthews acknowledges that he will play
Summer baseball after the college year
ends. Because of the Clarkson case of
last season, the Harvard athletic author
ities will probably trace the rumor care
fully, and If it should prove to be true,
Matthews will. In all probability, be
barred from the team. Last year. Just
before the Tale scries, Clarkson, who was
then captain of tho team, signed with
the New Tork Americans. He was Im
mediately declared to have made himself
a professional by this act.
Western Bowling Congress.
The Western Bowling Congress will hold
a special meet in Portland August 1. 2. 3
and 4. This will be the first meet of the
new Bowling Congress, which was or
ganized in Spokane April 27 last. This

Want Auto Handlcnpper.
Experts in automobile racing are trying
to figure out some plan of handicapping
that will furnish better sport in motor
car competition. The majority of them
object to" the technical way of allotting
Marts which have proven so unsatisfac
tory during the past two years, and the
best informed are a unit in declaring that
handicapping should be done on the past
performances of the car and nothing else.
The handioappers should allot marks to
the new cars as they were entered, but
just as soon as a car won a race In a cer
tain time It would be placed In that .same
class, just as they do with the trotting

O'Keefe and Jimmy Gardner will fight
unUl they are actually In the rinsr.
These two bruisers have been matched
several times, but if one didn't Welsh
the other did. and they have never
exchanged wallops. This pair, should
they finally get together, should fur
nish a highly scientific series of wal
lops, blocks and Jabs. On dope Gard

ing, while O'Keefe, a. Ions time ago,

"Buddy Byan" and Mike Ward, two
men that are In OTTeefe's -class. O'Keefe
failed to do anything with Ryan, while
Gardner whipped him in Jig time and.
according to George Slier, this fight
was the best ever seen in Chicago.
O'Keefe has no performance to his
credit that etands out like that of
Gardner's victory over Ryan, so It's
bard to figure that the Chicagoan has
anything better than a chance against
Schreck's Bid for Fame.
The big fight, of course, will be that
of -Ruby Robert and Mike Schreek.
Schreek has loomed up on the pugilistic
horizon with a leap and a bound. It Is
true that he has had his baptism of
Lgloves and gore, but he kept pegging
away until he demanded attention from
Fitzslmmons. Schreck's recent vic
tory over Jack GarJner, whom Fltx
simmons also beat, paved the way for
his battle with Fitzslmmons. There Is
no question that Fitzslmmons has gono
back. His fight In San Francisco, when
he met and defeated George Gardner,
proved this. Gardner developed a yel
low streak early In the fight. He came
tn contact with a couple of choice Fitz
slmmons wallops, and they stung him
so that he quit.
In Schreek. Fitzslmmons will find a
fighter of a different caliber. Schreek Is
after a championship. He will enter the
ring knowing that the Ruby One Is still
possessed of a punch that will call for
the referee's count, and he also knows
that Bob Is no longer a young man.
Fltz found that 20 rounds was a tre
mendous long journey when he fought
Gardner, and there are those who saw
the flsht who say that any time after
ten rounds, had Gardner sailed In, he
might have changed the decision, for
Fitzslmmons was very tired.
One reason given by- the ex -champion
after the fight for his apparent
bad showing, was that his feet, which
had bothered him a great deal during
his training, went back on him. Fltz Is
of the "kidney foot" when it comes to
feel, and undoubtedly this did bother
him a good deal.
Hard Job for Fltz.
tWlse fight fans, while they have
great confidence in Fitzslmmons, feel
that the old fellow has bitten off a
mouthful to great to digest In hooking
up against Schreek. Schreek has not
outlined his course of battle, but it Is
saf to bet that he will try and keep
away from Fitx until half of the Jour
ney Is over, and then sail in and wear
down freckled-faced Bob. No one
knows better, than FltrJiImself that
he Is not as good a man now as he was
when he met Jeffries the last time. He
must realize, and if be doesn't he's a
fool, that if he beats Schreek. or any
other coming youngster, that he must
do it in a hurry.
Fltz has been spoiling for a fight for
some time, but It was not until Schreek
Merchants' National Bank, Wells-Fargo Express Company
beat Gardner and Jeffries renounced
the ring, that he got down to dead ear
nest. Fitzslmmons is anxious to Wear
the heavyweight laurels again. When
Jeffries dropped the mantle it natur

. On the heels of Jeffries' retirement
story comes the rumor that he Is to
officiate at the Jack Root-Marvin Hart
fight at Reno, Nev. The pair will fight
July 2. Hart and Root have both left
for tho scene of their battlo. and will
start active training. Hart will fit him
self at Reno, while Root will do his
training at Shaw Springs, near Carson
City, where Jim Corbett trained for
his famous battle with Fitzslmmons.
Promoters are preparing for a big
crowd, and they will erect an arena
that will seat 6000 people. Hart has
fought one battle since he was given a
decision over Jack Johnson, a deci
sion that he did not deserve. He fought
Willy and gave him a good beating.
Willy was touted as a doming cham
pion, but Hart walloped this out of
him in a hurry.

championship. Before his fight with

possible battle between him and Jeff

Johnson except willingness to mix It.
LACROSSE GAME TODAY.
Portland and Shamrocks to Try for
Portland lacrosse men and their follow
ers are In a fever of excitement Just naw.
for the two warm rivals, the Portlands
and the Shamrocks, will play lacrosse
this afternoon at 3:15 o'clock at the base
ball grounds. Twenty-fourth and Vaughn
streets, to settle the question as to which
club will represent Portland at the ap
proaching lacrosse tournament at the
Lewis and Clark Exposition, when the
gold medal championship open to the
world will be tried for.
Tho Portlands and Shamrocks would
have played before had the weather been
at all favorable, and the disappointment
was mourned by many friends, who all
said: "May the better club win." Since
than all the boys have been practicing
hard and are In better shape than ever.
Tho Portlands are to have playing with
them the great Lynch of New Westmin

is one of the stars of the Westminsters,
the club that went Bast and slaughtered
all rivals who had hitherto dared any
one to beat them. Lynch plays like a
whirlwind, is a hard man to stop, and
Indeed people are wondering who in the
Shamrocks will stop him? The work of
Jennings at second home will bo watched,
for Jennings Is a comer.
"We will take care of all the Portland
players who come against us," seems
to be the universal opinion of the Sham

fact that the great and only Ken- Camp

was an up-to-date room Into which the
future great but then unknown ballplayer
was ushered. Jimmy sought the easiest
chair In sight, and then sat down. After
a long wait he touched the push button.
" 'A cigar, please. he said. An hour
later he rang the bell again. 'A pitcher of
water, please, was this order. So it went
on until well past noon. Lemonades,
magazines, newspapers and cigars were
ordered, Jimmy all the time fighting shy
of the question nearest to his heart.
"Finally, when almost ready to curl up
on tho carpet and go to sleep, Sebrings
courage came back to him. He gave the
bell a savage punch. When the boy ap
peared Jimmy yelled with all his might:
" "Bring me a bed! Don't you see I'm
dying for sleep?
" 'Certainly, sah. Certainly,' said the
boy, and, going over to the corner, he
let down a sumptuous folding bed that,
once in a horizontal position, seemed to
fairly invite rest and sleep.
" 'Well, drat me for a Rube, whiskers
and all.' jald Jimmy. "Here I've been sit
ting straight up In a chair half a day
wondering whether that thing was a mu
sic box or an Ice chest. "Cleveland

People Want Scrappy Baseball.
"A ballplayer says a good many things
on the field he doesn't mean and when
the game Is over be forgets about them.
He harbors no ill feeling against the um
pire. If the umpire Is capable, but against
those fellows who try to show their au
thority on the field he may feel sore for a
long time. While I am not advocating
trying to bulldoze the umpires or making
It a habit to find fault with them, still I
believe scrappy baseball Is what the peo
ple want to see.
"If they want the pink-tea kind, all
right, they can get it; but I tell you the
teams that have won pennants In base
ball and filled the coffers of the club with
coin are the ones that played scrappy,
"The old Chlcagos under Anson, the old
Bostons with Duffy, the Plttsburgs, and
the present New Torks, are cases In
point. They are the sort of teams that
the public goes to see." Cincinnati Com
