FAVORITE HAS A HEMORRHAGE. Elwah Bleeds in Overnight Handicap at Laurel and Spearhead Is Returned the Winner. Baltimore, Md., October 30. The famous Barbarity Stables scarlet of Alfred Heuncn Morris was carried to the front in the feature race of todays card at Iaurel Park when Banquet beat a good band in the live-furlong dash for two-year-olds. Banquet won comfortably enough, but there might have been a different talc to tell had He Will, Louis Feustels Ileno youngster, not been sharply-cut off on the turn out of the backstretch. Han- sou. carrying lis pounds, was the first away and I he showed the way to the turn, with He Will and Banquet close together. Coining into the stretch, Hanson still led, with Banquet m second place and He Will third. A furlong out Hanson tired and Banquet easily passed him and went on to win easily. After he had been cut off, Kederis took lie Will to the outside and the horse moved up with a rush when straightened out in the stretch. He passed tho tiring Hanson a few yards from the nnish and took second place. Whether He Will could have beaten Banquet, Is, of course, a matter for conjecture, for Banquet won easily, but there is no doubt He Will lost much by interference. A selling handicap for three-year-olds and upward at one mile and a sixteenth, divided interest with the two-year-old event and Elwah, on the strength of her recent good performance in a stake last week, was the popular cnoice. Again, it was a case of what might have been. Elwah assumed a good lead in the run to the first turn and was going along comfortably on the backstretch, with Spearhead in second place, when the Bedwell mare faltered. Elwah hung on gamely to the upper turn, where Spearhead passed her easily and went on to a handy victory, with his stable companion, Holiday, running in Mrs. Archibald Barklles colors, second, and Brynliinah third. Elwah pulled up last aud it was seen she had suffered a hemorrhage. Several more stables were transferred to Pinilico this morning, the shipment including the strings owned by A. B. Hancock, James Fitzsimmons, Willie Martin and the Quincy stable. Frank Herold has arranged to ship Ladv Brvn and Sunno to Juarez for Boxie Angarola.
