What may eventually develop Into another scandal of the Me-CalTerty-niirnell order, was started here today when Phil King boosted Dr. McCIuer. winner of the sixth race, to 1,000, a raise of over his entered price. When King discovered that P. SI. Civill was determined to retain Dr. McCIuer, he dropped out of the bidding after running the horse to a price which lie probably considers far in excess of his real value. The trouble between King and Civill dates back to a race run December 11, In which Dr. McCIuer was beaten off under what was said to be a bad ride by Warren. King holds the contract on Warren and Civill complained to. the officials about Warrens ride, claiming that th.e lad disobeyed instructions. King intimates that Dr. McCIuer was run "cold" under Warren and "hot" in his next race when Mountain rode him. There was nothing exciting about the sport today outside of the run-up. The finishes were tame, but ns four of the events were "won by the favorites, the public was well satisfied with its afternoons entertainment. P. M. Civill furnished the winners in the third and sixth races in Halliard and Dr. McCIuer. Both horses were ridden by Mountain and both won their races in but little better than a canter.

Una was a gift filly, William Karrick throwing her in as "lagni-appn" when Joplin purchased Bellwether and Ja-votte of the Oncck Stable for A. F. Mathews. Jockey Warren today received a telegram from liis mother to return to Ills home in Covington, Ky., Immediately.
