J Oakland, Cal., November 19. Jockey Knapp was promptly given a license when be applied for it the California Jockey Club and rode Money Muss, the S to 5 favorite, to victory in the second race at Oakland today. The somewhat lukewarm reception accorded the much discussed" rider when he appeared on the track was quickly changed to one marked by riotously appreciative applause when he returned to the scales after making good for Money Muss backers, without even having given them a moments uneasiness during the running of the race. The rejuvenated Corrigan, almost backed off the boards, accounted for the selling affair that came next. Nagazam, in the last, was the third public choice to score. Aside from this commonplace announcement, Herman Radtke rode the Jennings horse aud it was the former crack jockeys first winning mount in a long time. S. C. Hildreths Wap, named after W. A. Pin-kerton, and a reputed crackerjack in private, was the first favorite to go down to defeat, but with Blond, which bolted at the start and was left at the post in the fifth, were of the receding variety and their elimination as contenders meant little or no loss to the general public. It remained for Magazine, in the Alameda Handicap, however, to work havoc with owner and racegoers alike. The crack Carman two-year-old failed to display his true form in this race, though he was carried out on the turn and there were excuses-the plenty forthcoming for him.

Gemmell, which is a fast horse, repeated in gallant style today, running the distance of five and a half furlongs in 1:001. J. A. Bennot of New York captured two races with Green Goods and Molesey. The victory ot the last named proved costly, as TJ. Z. De Arman, laboring under the impression that he was entered below his true value at ,000, proceeded to bid him up to ,300 before he stopped. The owner retained Molesey with the customary advance and then rotaliated by claiming J. 0. Kcenes Red Leaf, the runner-up, for ,000. There was a slight sprinkling of rain during the day.
