FIVE FAVORITES WIN AT MONTREAL. Another Day of Rain Many Withdrawals Liebert Can Ride for Employer. Montreal, Que., September 4. This was anolher disagreeable day at Itlun P.onnets. Throughout the morning a cold drizzling rain fell and in the afternoon there were frequent showers. The track was deep and heavy and there were in consequence many withdrawals. The attendance was not as large as on the previous day, yet the speculation was brisk enough to keep twenty layers busy, and since five favorites won the public was in a mood to forget the discomforts occasioned by the bad weather. Ormondes Itight would have won the sixth race had Goldstein not made the fatal error of going to his whip beginning the last furlong, where he had Edwin Cum beaten. Musgraves finish on Stanley Fay was not a brilliant effort. When he went to his whip he let go the colts head and Stanley Fay swerved across the track and never stopped until he hit the fence. Jockey Liebert, whose ride on Louis Rooderor on Monday got him into trouble, will be permitted to ride for his employer, A. Molinelli, only. The stewards could find no Incriminating evidence against the lad, but they were satisfied the Imws efforts on Louis Itoederer were not his best. Jockey L. Williams, whose license was revoked by the Jockey Club, was warned away from the course this afternoon. Jockey Criininins was among the new arrivals and will be seen in the saddle tomorrow. Jockey J. Lee and his manager P.en Jacobs, arrived from New York this morning. Lee will remain here until the opening of the Lexington meeting. Secretary Fraser -of the Ontario Jockey Club arrived from Toronto this morning and was busy during the afternoon receiving applications from horsemen for stable room at Woodbine. The officers and crew of the German warship Bremen, which Is in the harbor, will be the guests of the Montreal Jockey Club tomorrow.
