THOROUGHBRED SIRES AT HORSE SHOW NEW YORK, N. Y., November 15. Six thoroughbreds will be shown at the National Horse Show which opens Monday in Madison Square Garden. They are exhibited for the purpose of designating which is the best type for begetting general utility horses and remounts. Practically all are known to race goers of the past decade. They include S. .1. Vanderbecks AUumeur; Cassilis Farms Uncus Chief; Troop K.s Oyama; Mrs. W. A. Wadsworths Uncle George; Mr. H. W. Wrights Ellisdale, and Mr. W. D. Clellands Bulgaria. Uncle George, Al-liimeur and Bulgaria are all imported horses, being sired respectively by Heckler, Meddler and Bulgaria by that celebrated French stallion Adam. Four of these exhibits are designated by the catalogue as being capable of siring good race horses, the two exceptions being Oynmu and Ellis-dale. These four will be exhibited for a separate prize under the head of "horses suitable to sire race horses." As has been the case for the past few years John E. Madden will judge them. On Wednesday afternoon the visiting Prince of Wales will be a guest of the horse show association, but unfortunately the thoroughbred classes will not be on exhibition tliat day, but arrangements will be made for the prince to view this class duriug his parade through the " stables.
