La., February 10. — Tlio return to the •»I 1 system .f lietlitar. whli 1 ths ;IU 1 big , slates, overshadowed the interest in racing this afternoon at City Park. The change in hctthig operations was brought about by a meeting of the City Patk .loekey flub stockholder* last night, when . it M voted n abolish the system that had prevailed . since the apaaing of the present racing season. The Fair Croiinds will not countenance a change i from tbe high s|ik 1s and small hand slates, and , liet year will try further to divorce the betting ring from the racing by the discontinuance of | tiekets. anil conform strictly to the eastern system in accordance with tin- Percy-Gray law. Twenty nine layers. ■ falling off of two from yes , t onlay, cut iu at tiMlays drawing, and discussion i among them was divided as to which system was i • he most advantageous. , Tic- I.agardc Selling Stakes for three-year-olds at one mile, having a net valnc of ,710 to the winner, was won in a canter by Angclus. which heretofore was supposed to have a dislike for heavy ; going. The Burlew and ONeill Derby candidate was sent into a lung lead from lhe Mart and held his opponents safe all the way. ultimately winning in n common canter from Miss Dclaney. the favorite. Severus. which finished third, would have been a | much sharp. r factor but for being impeded on the first turn by Miss Delaney. Banrid-a and Lady Souffle were also knocked back at the same time and their chances of winning lessened materially. The condensed bMory of tbe I.agarde Selling Stakes is as follows: ear. Winuer. Wt.

Their action fre- iuently cost ih in the purse, as shown by lhe defeats of Baleshed and Ralbert. Both of these were best in their resiieciivc races and lost through their riders inability to k-op them straight in the stretch tun. The steeplechase over the short course went to Wat Bray, which won in a ranter after wearing down Coal BIa k Lady, the early pacemaker. Sobell. who fell with Jim Mutton last Monday, again received a bad tumble when his mount. I. in dale, fell at the seventh jump. Kosehurg 11. again demonstrated that he is a better colt than credited and showed the way to the other youngsters in the opening race, for which llahimoi k Boy was a strongly fancied favorite. The showing of Yankee Daughter, making her first start, and which finished third, was a sparkling performance anil in all probability she will reverse the • loci-ion in the near future. A li.r Melianiel got left at the post on Red Mill in the third race, starter Cassidy took him to ta-k sharply in the preseme of the judges. Ca-sidy claimed that MoDaniel did not make any strenuous effort to leave the post with the rest of the field, and that Red Mill was straight when tbe barrier was released. Scott Hudson, the well-known trotting horse driver, who arrived yesterday, is buying a number of th - fioorer class of homes for the purpose of shipping them to Atlanta to Ceorgia farmers.
