BINGLING TIKES A STAKE BEVERWYCK STABLES FILLY BEATS JOHN FURLONG IN CHARLESTON FEATURE. H. G. Bedwell Captures Half the Palmetto Park Card with Hearthstone, Brave Cunarder and Elwah Deronde Pilots Four Winners. Charleston, S. C, December 0. The Argyle Handicap, one mile and a sixteenth and worth ,500, which featured a good program of six races at Palmetto Park today, was won by the Beverwyek Stables Riiigling in commanding fashion over the odds-on favorite, John Furlong, with Carlton G. third. G. M. Miller and Lochiel were the other contestants in the race. Because of a recent excellent trial, John Furlong was thought to have the stake at his mercy and was supported extensively. He suffered considerable interference on the first turn, but it is doubtful if he could have taken Ring-lings measure this afternoon with everything favorable. II. G. Bedwclls representatives and jockey Deronde figured extensively in the afternoons results. Members of the Colorado turfmans establishment accounted for half the card and the three Bedwell winners were ridden by Deronde. The latter also piloted Bat Masterson to victory in the second race. This apprentice jockey showed excellent horsemanship and to his skilful riding was due the success of Hearthstone in the opener and Elwah In the filial dash. In the first instance. Pikes Peak was best, but the Inexperienced Randolph could not do his mount justice when it came to the final drive. Toddling would have beaten Elwah with less energetic handling for the latter. Derondes other success was scored on Brave Cunarder, which beat Miss Gayle in a drive for the purse in the two-year-old handicap at live furlongs. The A. Weber stable suffered its second run-up of the meeting when Counterpart, favorite and heavily backed, accounted for the fifth race over Colonel Cook and Duquesne. The winner was entered for ,300 and was bid up to ,500 by William Walker. Counterpart was retained. The run-up was probably due to jockey Keoghs action in. having slightly imiieded Duquesne on the stretch turn, which caused Ward to claim foul against the winner, but the stewards took little cognizance of the matter. Keogh on the other hand made the grave accusation that Ward had leliberatelyforcod. him wide while going1 down, the backstretch and that Scharf on Napier wast.paijfyfto the action by having called to Ward to do so." The stewards will look into the matter. Todays attendance was probably the best of the -.nceting and the betting also showed improvement over former days. The layers again had an unprofitable experience on account of the extensive support all the winners received. W. P. Spurgeon, a well-known Washington, D. C, newspaper man, was among todays visitors and he will remain here for some time to enjoy the sport. Jockey Kederis, it is reoortcd. will arrive shortly hero from his home in the west and will join the W. G. Yanke establishment. Skects was claimed out of the second race by J. W. Hedrick, who afterward sold him" back to W. 0. Westmoreland. The inare Miss Jonah, which was stricken with an attack of lung fever after her arrival from Norfolk, died this morning. A number of other horses are on the ailing list. Amos Turiiey was an arrival from Kentucky. He sent a couple of horses here in J. S. Wards charge and will remain until the holidays before returning north. Mr. Turney will start the season next year with one of the largest strings he has ever campaigned. Horron and Kleburne are wintering well and promise to come back to the races next spring in splendid shape. Jockey Joe McCahey wired that he would arrive here next Monday. Trainer Frank Hcrold will look after his engagements here this winter. P. Nicholson, of Toronto, joined the ranks of the layers at Palmetto Park this afternoon.
