JAMESTOWN HAS WET TRACK. Norfolk, Va.. April G. — This was ladies day at Ihe Jamestown Jockey Clubs course. The attendance was about the same as on Monday and but for .1 heavy storm, almost bordering on a cyclone, a r.-c old attendance would have been a resent. Many car loads of passengers were stalled in Norfolk. Racing has i-aught on here splendidly and. with the arrival of horses etiroute. the sport will improve materially. Seven BeekaMken were kept busy. Three favorites again rewarded the public by getting home in front. Th. layers are all big losers so far. but exjieot to get a break when the fields become heavier. The BBMeteehaae was something of a farce. Maie Fletcher, at the next to the last jump, taking off loo far. fell heavily. Dr. Pillow followed suit at the last jump, as did Beppo. Xebec tlien galloped home far in advance of Woodside. Stevenson re mounted Beaata and Batehed third. McCtetecet an ugly fall, sustained a broken shoulder and was otherwi-e badly bruised.

Joe J. li.-- g.H.,1 two year-old coll by Hastings, made his company look cheap in the opening race and won un-exteiided. I.ois Cavanagh easily beat Bethlehem ill the fourth race.
