ARMY RACE ATTRACTS BIG CROWD. Large Delegation from Washington Visits Laurel Track to See Army Officers Ride. Baltimore, Md., October 10. This was military day at Laurel. A mile fiat race for army officers attracted a big delegation from official Washington, the attendance being the largest of the meeting. As a spectacle, the army race did not amount to a great deal. Lieut. C. K. Rockwells Haudrunning was so much the best that he only played with his company to win under strong restraint from Major Otwells Hannah Louise and Lieutenant Flemings Mason. What wns of more interest in a racing way was the victory of the veteran Sir John Johnson over a smart band of sprinters at six furlongs. The old lellow demonstrated that he has come back to something approaching his old-time form and that he may be reckoned with among the best of them Irom now on. Sir John Johnson ran his first quarter in :23 and the half mile in :47. The other races were selling affairs, in which well matched fields went to the post. Close finishes tame witli the running of a majority of them and i.i a couple the winners were in doubt until the final strides. My Fellow, winner of the closing dash, was bid up from 00 to and bought by the Quincy Stable. Tlie funeral of the late Judge J. J. Burke was held at his residence in Richmond Hill this nftcr-noon and several turfmen went over to attend the services. Charles Boots, California turfman, promises to return to racing next season with nine likely maidens that have not yet been to the iiost. They are four-year-olds and over and are now at Sheeps-head Bay, having recently been shipped from California. Two of the lot are by Mortlake and there is a four-year-old by Borgia Merops. There is a mare by St. Symphorieii out of a sister to Peter tlie Great, a gelding by Venator, and another mare by Installation. Tney are all California-bred and .loe Nelson has charge of them at the course of the Coney Island Jockey Club. Should they train satis-r tactorily this fall, some of them will be shipped to Charleston for the long meeting soon to open tuere. . Peter Wimmer lias been placed in charge of John Sanfords French breeding establishment. Another of the Sanfoul plans Is to have Tom Cook take over a number of horses this fall. They will be turned over to Preston Burch. who will convert them into jumpers for the cross-country racing in France. Tne August Belmont yearlings that Louis Feustel has charge of at Belmont Park will be shipped to Benniug on November 1 and turned over to S. C. Hildretli. Jacob Munzinger, who for several years has been cashier for Sol Lichteusteiu. died suddenly from heart disease in his room at the Belvidere Hotel, Baltimore, last night. Mr. Munzinger had a similar attack during the racing season at Saratoga. Jockey Ford has been suspended for the rest of the meeting for cruelly beating Margaret Meise over the head with his whip while at the post in tlie first race yesterday. Jockey Noe was also suspended for the rest of the meeting for falling from Mo in the steeplechase. After the running of the third race J. L. Holland claimed Gallop, which finished third, from the Quincy Stable for ,400. There were four claims for the horse, the others being tiled by Martin Foley, H. G. Bedwell and Sam Louis.
