iQUEBUCT FAVOlilTES -WIN.- FOUR OUT OF SIX SCORE FOR THEIR OWNERS AND BACKERS. Scwcll Takes the Glen Cove Stakes in a Canter Jack Atkin Defeats Spooncr Hessian Wins Again. New York, November S. The ilea Cove Selling Slakes was reduced to throe starters before post lime today si ml it was won very easily by Sewcll, always :ui odds-on favorite in t lie betting. The tabulated history of the Glen Cove Stakes Is s;s follows: Year. Winner. Wt. Jockey. Val. Time. JJKKi Hanker 101 15. Smith . .$ 990 1:4! 1000 Athlete 100 W. .Miller.. 09." 1:47 1007 Sewell 10.". K. Rugau.. t40 1:42 Run at 1 1-lt! miles in 1003 and 1000. Four of tlie favorites were first home and it was a good day for the backers. The only non-winning favorites were in the first race when Hessian, at S to 1, nosed out Miss Sain after the lilly had led from t lie start, and in the fifth race when Sandal, a lilly from the si able of James It. Keene, scored. Sandal was the second choice in the betting and had a liberal following. The going was still slow from the recent rains, hut the weather was mild and pleasant. Miss Sain was one of the best backed horses of the afternoon and was supported with rare confidence. As u mailer of fact, had she finished in front, it is probable that she would have been set back, for all through the stretch she bumped and crowded Hessian, the winner, and had him on the extreme outside at the finish. Jack Atkin won the all aged handicap rather easily, but had Miller used better judgment in his riding of the two-year-old, Spooner, his victory would not have been so easy. Miller made much use of Spooner in the early running and when the filial duel came in the stretch, he lacked his usual energy. He rode another very bad race when he was beaten on Carrollton in the opening dash. When the start came lie was in a measure caught napping and. as a result, was cut off and had to take his mount up before the horses had gone a dozen strides. The Metropolitan Turf Association had a meeting last night and the seat of George Boles was taken up. by the executive committee, which is made up of Eddie Burke, Isaac Hakleberg, John Evans and Charles Henry. Holes, having been requested to stop booking by the Jockey Club, thus became unacceptable as a member of the "Mets." It was intimated to him that he had better resign anil tell his membership button. Holes objected to this, and put up an argument that he was not at fault in any way, but the committee decided that he could not longer remain a member. Holes sold his membership button to a man named Rurke for $",300, it was said. Boles was at the track today, betting on the outside heavily and losing. The reason for the retirement of Boles given today was that he had had a number of partners in liookmaking, and that these men had complained of the treatment I hey had received in the settlements of the business. It. was also said there was no question of the connection between Roles and some trainers who were not right, and that these trainers would find some trouble next year in getting licenses. Boles denied .everything and says that he is quitting for private reasons.
