EGH0NT WINS AT HIS FIBST STABT. El Paso. Texas. December 24. — It was a fairly good card that was served up at Juarez todav by Secretary Jasper. The principal feature was a selling handicap at three-quarters, which engaged several useful platers and resulted iu another victory for Joseph Tigues rejuvenated sprinter Seneca. Mex, making his first start of the meeting, was hacked into favoritsm. but could do no better than chase Seneca from start to finish. Ethel Welles, which ran disanpointingly in her previous start, accounted for the two-year-old race, with which proceedings began. Dundreary scored his third straight victory- for W. A. McKin-ney in the second. The third went to Charity Ward in a drive with Katharine G. and Old Bob. Egmont. one of the select string brought here by former jockey Phil Musgrave. made an auspicious debut by winning the fifth, race after having lieen backed wo heavily that he displaced Bevelrv James as favorite. An outsider, Lad, accounted for the remaining race. Harry Morrissey, who is to do the starting at Tia Juana, was a late arrival and will remain for a few days before proceeding to that place. Charley McFerrau was claimed out of his last race by Borland * SheWon for 25. Jock-y E. Martin was suspended for twenty days for rough riding. B. E. Chapman claimed Old Bob for 25 and F. D.
