JOHN CARROLL RUNS A SPLENDID MILE. Carries 122 Pounds and Wins in 1:39 2-5 After Being Kicked in the Ribs. Cincinnati, O., July 1C In the mile condition race, which was the feature of the Latonla program today, Edward Corrigans crack sprinter John Carroll, put up the liest performance he has shown this season, carrying 122 pounds and beating a speedy lot quite handily In 1:391. What made the race all the more notable was the fact that the colt was kicked in the ribs by Major T. J. Carson while at the post. He was outrun in all the early part of the journey and at the head of the stretch hardly seemed to have a winning chance. Responding gamely to Nicols call, however, he gradually wore down the leaders and placed to his credit, all things considered, about the best mile that has been seen in the west this season. Sister Frances, which was favorite in the race, had been Industriously touted as the best thing of the day. Tills fast filly had shown some very phenomenal work, covering seven furlongs close to 1:26 and doing It with something in reserve. She was badly handled today and will show improvement. William Gersts Stoddard was much the best in the steeplechase over the long course. He was reserved from the early pace made by St. Enoch and Slgmund and at the end had all the speed, winning as his rider pleased by five lengths from Slgmund. Gould was third, fifty lengths back, but was disqualified for running out at the last jump in the field, which gave Pierpont third money. St. Enoch and Wooldealer and H. M. P. fell. After Investigating the chargesof fighting in races against Nicol and Hall, the judges fined both jockeys 0 each and cautioned them that a repetition of the offense would mean a susiension.
