RECORDS FALL AT JEFFERSON New Marks Recorded at Two Distances. Arnold Takes the Feature Race in a Canter Jockeys Given a Reprimand. NEW ORLEANS. La., December .-..Racing developed 4his afternoon under ideal conditions, the weather again being delightful, and the constantly improving track in its best, iniwiition ack records went by the bonnl in two instances, the five and a half furlongs mark lteiug displaced by new figures. Tin handicap which featured the card was at the latter distance, and Mime fairly good ones started in it. with Arnold the ultimate winner from Tacola and Vouneed. The winner carried 120 pounds, kept in front from the .start, and. Rutwells energetic riding caused him to score easily in 1:00. which was four fifths seconds lietter than any previous time for the distance over this track. The five-eighths record was fractured even more when Sweet Liberty covered the distance in 1:01 and reduced it from the 1:02, the former mark. This marked the third time during the present meeting that the five-eighths record has been lowered. Todays card was on the whole the best that has been staged during the meeting, and it introduced many newcomers, a general sprinkling of better class horses being noted in the different dashes. The smart set uncovered several good things, and it cost the layers heavily. Proceedings began with Sweet Liberty in the opening nice. She was backed in confident style and never left the result in doubt, winning for the entire way. wUi Yuphauk landing in .second place nudIolph third. There was considerable action on Fledgeling; mostly from form backers, but he run out on "the first turn. Kliandou furnished a big surprise when he came Home n advance of Parrisii and General in the second race, which brought together a poor collection. Sugurmint, which was regarded well in the east, was a medium for a cleanup by her connections and she had no difficulty in landing in front of Peccant and Rurgoyne, the latter pair fighting it out hard through the stretch and their respective riders. I.unsford and Troxler, not overlooking an opportunity to rough and interfere with each other. Roth offenders were given a sharp call by the stewards and a warning that a repetition would mean 1 lit revoking of their licenses. Ronstelle showed the way to the others in the fourth race, for which he was the outstanding choice and landed in advance of Little Maudie and Retsy. The jarring note of the afternoon came with the running of the sixth race, in which Rutwell had the mount on Luther, a receding favorite, and his effort on that racer was not up to the vigorous style in which he can ride. As a result of his poor ride. Luther just managed to get up for second place, being led to the finisli by Aldebaran. This marked the first victory that Aldebaran has achieved in a long time and it will probably be again as long before he has such an easy time in earning a purse. KENTUCKIANS KEEP UP AVERAGE. The ICeutuckians kept up their average of five victories a day . today. Arnold and Shaudon lKing the only horses from other sections to win. The Rlue Grass state representatives have won forty out of fifty-six Rices nm .it tin meeting to date. Mose Goldhlatt. who lias a number of horses of Jlis own and Harry Payne Whitneys at the Fair Grounds, was an arrival today. He lias been resting at his home in Cincinnati for several weeks past, tories a day today, Arnold and Shaudon being the fifty-six races run at the meeting todate. Word was received today from John O. Whitlow to the effect that he will ship Madel G. a two-year-old which won in Kentucky last fall, and seven yearlings to this city. Will Woodard will send Opportunity and two other horses in the same car and they are scheduled to leave today. Whitlow will be remembered as the man who developed the crack Westy Hogau at the Fair Grounds several years ago, it being at that track that the famous horse won his first race as a two-year-old. R. A. Jones was au arrival from his home at Iarnell. Mo., and he brought eleven highly-bred yearlings here to race at the coming Fair Grounds meeting. All were bred at his farm. Jones is a regular visitor to the Fair Grounds with horses each year. Last year he brought the useful two-year-olds Thelma E.. a stake winner in the east, Miss Parnell and Robby Allen. Tlie linal race produced a hair-line finish witli tin? judges giving the decision to Eulogy over Little Cottage and Saints Bridge. The winner was lucky to be away fast and clear of interference, whereas Little Cottage was forced to race wide and Ambrose bungled badly on Saints Rridge. The latter was hceiiiingly best. P. Clausen, represented by Margaret Schlafer in tlie third race, claimed Rurgoyiiu for ,400. G. W. Forninn left twelve of his thirteen horses at Howie to winter. In tlie band is Hauberk, widen went amiss in his last start and it is doubtful if he will nice again. The horses that raced in W. J. Rydells name and run in his interest. Rydell having sold Wagnon and run in his interest, Rydell having sold Wagnon his entire interest in tlie horses.
