ANOTHER FOR J. K. L. ROSS His Speedy Milkmaid Wins Impressively in Ballair Handicap. t 1 William Martin Scores a Double E. R. Thomas First Success Since Return to Turf. NEW YORK, X. Y.. September 5. The horses of Commander J. K. L. Ross continued their win-ninpr streak today, Milkmaid taking ui ton weight of 120 pounds in the Rellair Handicap, conceding weight to all her opponents and winning in the fast time of 1:11. Elfin Queen, running the best race she has shown this year, -was the one to make the pace and it was not until within the final sixteenth that Sande was able to range alongside of her with Milkmaid. The latter passed Elfin Queen in the final eighth and drew away into a safe lead at the end. Enfilade, which was expected to furnish stout opposition for the Ross filly, was withdrawn. The weather was the best of the present meeting and U good-sized erowd, considering it was an off day, was present. AAilliam Martins Rridesman proved a surprise when ho took Questionnaire into camp in the third race, the -latter named horse and. Kashmir being supported to the practical exclusion of the other two starJ8rs,atidpiniMiphoviUngtlitrntistseetl, leili throughout, with Questionnaire closest in pursuit and gamely and successfully resisted the hitters fast closing challenge. Kashmir ran a bad race. Doleful was a short-priced choice in the fourth race, which only had four starters and he made good with ease, Tlios. F. McMahon being second and Orderly third. Faisan Bore won decisively in the first from an ordinary band of two-year-olds, Lovers Lane II., well supported, finishing unplaced after showing early speed. Scratches were numerous in the fifth race, six of the original ten being withdrawn. "William Martin again saw his colors to the fore when Happy Valley led the odds-on choice Whimsy home after leading all the way. Whimsy made a game and sustained effort in the final eighth, but failed to get on equal terms with the winner. S. McXaughton advanced Happy Valley from ,000 to ,700 after his victory, but he was protected on his owners bid of ,705. The victory of Doleful marked the first success of E. It. Thomas colors since his recent return to the turf. Trainer William Shields is desirous of purchasing several useful racers to represent Mr. Thomas. II. 1 Whitneys John P. Grier was an odds-on favorite in the closing race and lie made good by :i scant neck over Pilgrim. The winner had to be the best horse to win, as ho was away none too well and his performance was a meritorious one. SMALL "FIELD FOR LAWRENCE REALIZATION. ! Disappointment was expressed on all sides over the small size of the field carded to start in the Lawrence Realization tomorrow. Only five are mimed overnight, and if no others are added the race seems to be lietwoen W. K. Coos Over There and P. A. Clarks Dunboyne, the Futurity winner of last year. The latter has not started since his poor showing in the Preakness Stakes at Pimlico last spring, but is rcorted in prime condition, and tomorrows contest will give a good line on bis chances in the $."0,000 Latonia Championship Stakes, in which he is considered a sure starter. Over There has a pull in weights over Dunboyne, and the Spearmint colt has worked remarkably well for the . Lawrence an:l"wilI-probably-go to the post favorite. The horses carded to start in tomorrows race, which is one of the most valuable of the year, their riders and weights, are as follows: Horse. Rider. Wt. Over There C, Fairbrother 110 Dunboyne .1. Loftirs 120 Vexalious AV, Knapp 123 Thunderstorm ...L. Elisor IK! Polka Dot L. M.cAtec 123 It is more than probable that Sam Hildreth will semi his star two-year-old Dominique to Lexington to run in the Breeders Futurity, which will be run about a week later than the Futurity, to be run at Belmont Park a week from Saturday. Thos. Monahan lost a promising maiden two-year-old lit Valet this morning. He was working and had just run a quarter of a mile in 22 over the Gravesc-ml track, when a. yearling from the string of James Fitzsimnions darted across the track striking Valet and knocking him through the fence. His shoulder was broken and his destruction followed. Tommy Griffin will leave for Lexington early next week. He intends to stay in Kentucky visiting relatives for a few days, after which he will leave for bis home in California. The horses of R. E. Watkins and A. F. Dayton, eight In number, have arrived at Jamaica from Saratoga. A. G. Blakeley, W. J. Starr and C. X. Darkes horses also arrived the day before. Continued on second page, ANOTHER FOR J. K. L. ROSS .

Rosc-jc Troxler, who will ride for the stalle through the Maryland circuit, will also leave tonight.
