LAKESIDE RACING. The crowd at Lakeside yesterday was by far the smallest of the present meeting. It was reported around town in the morning that there would ba no speculation at the track and this undoubtedly kept many away. The card offered was of fair quality, moBt interest centering in the fifth race, a dash of one mil for three-year-olds and upward. Bondage was made a 4 to 5 favorite and rewarded the confidence placed in him by winning easily. OS last, he got into his stride slowly, but when running down the back-stretch he moved up fast and in the last eighth had little trouble about passing into the lead, winning by one length from Owenton which beat Albula a head for second place. Bondage threatened to bear in again when opposite the last eighth post, but Phillips succeeded this time in keeping him straight. Owenton was under a strenuous drive all through the stretch and responded with gameness, nipping Albula on the post for second place. He is nearly fit and ready now and should be a hard horse to beat before long. Albula ran right to the mark, but tired a trifle in the last hundred yards struggle. Lingo appeared to have a winning chance when straightened for home, but faltered badly when a furlong out. Alfred C. ran a dull race and can do better. Burnie Bunton, showing her old-time speed, had little trouble in annexing the third race to her owners credit. It was a dash of five and a half furlongs for three-year-olds and upward and she was was made a 7 to 10 favorite. Off in front, she was never afterward headed, winning by a length from Automaton, which beat Chop Suey two for second place. Automaton made an ineffectual attempt to t Lclose up on the winner in the last eighth. Mimo Hisplayed a fine turn of spaed, but maintained it Bly four and a half furlongs. He bears watch-from now on as he is a pretty fair sprinter fttia Walker was all entangled at the start and Bittle chance thereafter. Her race should be out in future calculations. Kt race of the day, a six furlongs dash for Aolds and upward, brought a field of Bdinary selling platers to the post. Dr. Apved to be the best, winning in a hard Bd from Gracious, which beat Double , or second place. Maxille fell heavily ! Aart, injuring jockey Berkson. B a sP?n six furlongs for three wird, proved to be an easy thing ; Bbich the way, Pgbalf lengths from Fake, which J beat Irene Mac a half length for second place, Fake began slowly, but finished fast. Jerry Lynch was easily best in the third race, a j four and a half furlongs scramble for two-year-olds. He easily wore down Judge Luthers in the stretch run and won easily by two and a half lengths from Plea, which easily outstayed Judge Luthers in the last sixteenth, beating him six lengths for second place. Miss Liza won the last race, a dash of .one jnile and twenty yards, easily by three lengths from Prairie Dog, which beat Bonnie Lissak a head for second place. Miss Lizas sudderr improvement was marked. Bonnie Lissak finished with a rush and bears watching. The betting was lifeless and light. The track was a shade slow, but will be in good shape today in case no rain falls. Shortly after the third race yesterday Chief of Police Cox, of Hammond. Ind., and several of his men visited the track and took "Kid" Welle r and one of his clerks into custody, charging them with ponlselling.
