LOCAL TURF GOSSIP. The fifth race originally carded had to be declared off on account of scratches. Vln-cennes and Lampoon were withdrawn early. Next in order came Little Elkin and Prince Blazes. Boaster then appeared to have the race at his mercy, but his owner refused to start him because he had shown symptoms of lameness while being cantered in the morning. T. C. McDowell stated yesterday that in any event he would not ship east until later Jn the season and would probably not go at all. "It all depends on how Allan-a-Dale is doing, for I have only got two horses that could win in New York, and if Allan-a-Dale dont show signs of standing training I will only have one," meaning Monarka. The track yesterday, although good on top, was soft underneath and extra fast time was out of the question. Jockey Treanor was guilty yesterday of as flagrant a piece of rough work as ever was perpetrated on a race track. Treanor had the mount on Orfeo in the fourth race, while L. Wilson was astride of the heavily-backed favorite, Travers. Rounding into the stretch, Orfeo was on the Inside and a head in front of Travers. The latter was going handily and apparently a winner. Treanor, when he felt his mount weakening, began carrying Travers towards the outer fence, Wilson meanwhile pleading with him not to do it. The latter, however, would not desist until Barrica, Alee and Hot had passed him in turn and Travers chances of winning had been ruined. Tichenor and Co.s horses are rapidly rounding into shape and from now on should earn their share of the purses. S. Bonner on Mary Glenn attempted to race Bad News into early subjection, but his mount was not equal to the task and tired badly in the last quarter, with the result that she did not finish in the money after apparently having second place secure.

This move while the -others swung lot of ground and saved the Tichenor filly a put her in the lead before the others were well straightened out. In the stretch drive she stood punishment gamely, but was tiring fast near the end. . , 1
