FORTE IS A STAYEK STAY STAYEKSnow Snow fell on such of the legulars regulars as wended their way to the Harlem racetrack yesterday at tb9 hoar of 115 D m A man remarked Its all right to cool off the heroes of Santiago but sleat seat is rather rubbing it in The only persons oblivious of the fact that cold disagreeable weather has arrived are the street car officials and these have slight chance of salvation whan wham they are judged for continuing in use their pneumonia producing conveyances conveyancesSoon conveyances Soon after two oclock o'clock the sky cleared some ¬ what and the day thereafter was a compara compare ¬ tively lively bright one The track was simply hor Thor ¬ rible rile and the horses hoofs sank deep into the soil Water slopped everywhere There was no fire in the betting ring but the hot ones made good for this and Virginia Carroll was so heated up after being singed on the first race that he told a dollar bettor who tried to wager on Nannie Nannies Ls sister to Go see General Miles facetiously referring to a field bookmaker who chances to resemble the general of the United States army armyWeather ammeter Weather conditions do more to injure racing other unfavorable influences com ¬ bined binned and it seems a pity that The Columbia Stakes SI SCO SCOT added two and oneeighth neigh miles should have come up for decision when the track was a quagmire The Harlem people had here given up more money than has here ¬ tofore twofer this season been in sight at Chicago for the class of horses engaged Bat there was nothiug nothing to do but run the race as racing as ¬ sociations spoliations every where announce race rain or shine in this matter being handicapped as against the managers of trotting who invari invariant ¬ ably postpone big stake eveats events in cases of bad weather weatherSo weatherS So to the post yesterday to run for 1503 first money TOO second money and 100 third money galloped five horses The opinion as to the winner is best told by the batting no horse ever standing at less than 2 or more than 6 to 1 Frank Jaubert Jabber was a great tip and he finally went to the post the favorite The nieht night before the race L A Legg Leggy who sold this horse to his present owner A Shields declared that he wasnt wasn't much and that he had been glad to get rid of him at 400 Frank Jaubert Jabber had been especially prepared for this race but knowing this John Glenn laid 13 to 5 at the post other bookmakers having up 11 to 5 And Frank Jaubert Jabber was never better than absolutely although until the last threeeighths he had Croesus Cress for company The horses started oa their long journey in a driving rainstorm the falling drops feeling like icecold Cecil pellets pelletsBoanerges electioneered Boanerges Beaneries went out and ran the first mile as fast as Moch Mooch had covered the distance He was here nearly one sixteenth of a mile in front of Forte he eight lengths better than Elusive she six lengths ahead of the others Such cheering and yelling as now rent the air have seldom been heard and people forgot the storm and were soundly soaked as they voiced the cries of I guess they will catch him nit Why hes hems only galloping etc But eatering catering the backstretch with three quarters of a mila Milan to be traversed to where the money was hung up t jkiartisaiio of Dunae Dune began to dance and vell ell git gait him Eat him up Forte and sure enough the tremendous gap had closed and Forte was only ten lengths behiud behind Boan Ban ¬ erges merges Creeping were the horses but the leader was weakening at every stride At the far turn Forte collared him and the race was over Boanerges Beaneries stopping to a walk while Forte came on steadily and walked home lengths better than Croesus Cress who just beat Elusive for the second money Boanerges Beaneries was fourth away back and Frank Taubert Tuber pulled up was at the sixtoo spittoon th post It was the long ¬ est distance race run in Chicago for many years yearsThings earthlings Things warmed up about the first race when Ed Wagner reached the course and went up and down the valley of the seventeen regular bookmakers betting on The Pride backing this son of Dundee from 5 down to 2 to 1 Skeets Skeet Martin was up and the good thing went through The Pride was first at a breakaway first at the start and first all the way As he won pulling up by many lengths he could have been left standing at the post and still got the money Sam Lazarus Esq the good thing of the St Louis party got off none too well but ran second beating Phidias Ophidians third by twenty lengths Judge Wofford Oxford whipping was just behind Phidias Ophidians Nannie Nannies Ls Sister started in this race and ran fifth This mare was barred at Hawthornetlre Hawthorne officials there saying She has no name despite the fact that as Nannie Nannies Ls Sister she has run at several recognized Turf Congress tracks The case is to be pre ¬ sented scented to the Board of Appeals Carnero Caner the 6 to 5 favorite was never in the hunt huntBarney henbane Barney Schreibar Schreiber recently sold Dr Marks to J J Donovan and threw Moch Mooch in to give good weight In the second race yesterday the former owner of Moch Mooch laid the longest price in the ring against the horse and the new owner backed him Moch Mooch led all the way and Donovan won out his recent purchase while Schreiber lost on the race The latter when asked When did you sell Moch Mooch answered sardon sardonic ¬ ically calmly I dont don't sell horses I give em away

and Heigh High Ho came up A sixteenth out Good Friend having Graziella Grazie beaten looked a sure winner the more so as Heigh High Ho was directly behind her Some folks say that J Eeiff Eiffel cannot
