Heavy Showers Fall at Charleston and Givo Mud Runners Another Chance Lawrence and Corn-stock Yearlings Sold at Auction. Charleston. S. C-. December 10. The mud runners had a chance to show their merit at Palmetto Park this afternoon. Heavy showers that fell this morning made the going muddy. There was a good bottom, but the change in track conditions was responsible for numerous withelrawals. R. E". Wat-kins furnished the winner of the feature race, the Charleston Hotel Selling Stakes, in the consistent Harry Shaw, which shouldered top weight, mailo all of his own pace and won easily from Working Lad. The winner was ridden by the unfashionable jockey Hinphy, but despite this the layers held hiin at a short price. Harry Shaw so far outclassed his opposition that the result was never in doubt after they had gone a epiarter, for he sprlnteel into an easy lead in rounding the first turn anil was only cantering at the finish. Close finishes attended the running of several of the races. This was especially so in the second and sixth, which LAiglon aud Bairron won by small margins. Despite the fact that the conditions of all six races called for selling allowances, there was no bidding up of the winners. The biggest disappointment of the day was furnished by Sherwood, heavily supported at odds-on in the fifth race, a dash of five and a half furlongs. Sherwood was a keen factor to the stretch turn, where Progressive easily disposed of iiis opposition. The -winner is trained by James Arthur, whose colors were carried to victory by Balfron iu the closing dash. Jockey Teahan, who was suspended for unsatisfactory riding by the officials, left tonight for his home at Windsor, Out. J. M. Goode announced that he would send his stable from here; to Havana.
