JONES THINKS HIGHLY OF ELECTIONEER, Lexington, Ky., October 29. Frank Jones, the veteran trainer, who, in the last twenty years has developed many famous horses, including Clarence II. Mackays Brooklyn and Metropolitan Handicap winner, Banastar, has come home to winter after seeing all the racing in the east this year. He says Salvi-dere stands out all alone among the two-year-olds of the season, with the exception of the Futurity winner Electioneer, and he has at that the edge on the son of Voter, as lie beat him in the Montauk Stakes, at Brighton Beach, the only time the pair met. Electioneer, however, was a much Improved colt later in the season, and the contest tlie two had in tlie early stake was not a decisive test as to their relative merits. Jones says while Salvidere is a good looking youngster. Electioneer is the highest type in form of the two, being one of the grandest colts in appearance that has been seen on the eastern tracks in year?. Tlie old trainer looks for a great race next season between these cracks when they hook up at their best form as three-year-olds. Jones will take a horse or two to Latonia before that meeting is over to pick up a purse to pay winter feed bills. He lias done little racing in the west for a number of years.
