The Kdward W. Magiun Memorial Handicap was offered as the feature attraction for the closing days racing at Fort Krie this afternoon and resulted in an impressive victory for the Seagram Stables Rrilliant Jester over Raby Grand and Rlackie Daw. The, race was at a mile and a sixteenth for three-year-olds and over, to which ,500 was added and wortli 1,370 to the winner. A field of six faced tlie barrier after the overnight entry list had been riddled by scratches. The. start was a good one and Lucky R. .was the one to set the pace. He showed the way until the far turn was reached, Avhere Rutwell slipped through next to the inner rail with Rrilliant Jester and opened up a commanding lead. At the turn into the homestretch the leaders went very wide and Rurke saved considerable ground with Raby Gnfml The latter was carrying top weight and gave away lots of iKjuiidage Ixjth by actual weight and by tin; scale. He could not. however, overtake the winner, but outstayed Rlackie Daw for second place. Lucky R. quit after his early, display ot speed and finished "hist. The crowd, which came to bid adieu to the thoroughbreds for this year in this vicinity, was the largest of the meeting ami Were well rewarded by witnessing spirited racing and several close finishes. Chorlis victory in the opening dash was easily achieved. Showing good speed from .the .start, she opened up a safe and commanding lead, which she maintained to the end, never in danger. A. ;L.

Vanessa Welles and Phantom Fair leading him home in tlie order named. Thorny Way won in easy fashion, while Yanessa Welles came from the rear witli a rush to pass Phantom Fair in tlie last stride. The latter raced gamely and prominently all the way, but found her heavy impost too much at the end. ANOTHER FOR THORNCLIFFE STABLE. Tlie handicap for Canadian-bred horses at three-quarters of a mile registered another victory for the Thorncliffe Stable when Witch Flower defeated tin- Seagram Stables Gallipot by a safe margin after the latter had set the pace all the way. Gallipot was tired out from racing Sudor into defeat and had little left when the ultimate winner challenged. The best contest of the afternoon proved to be a sprinting handicap under claiming, conditions which brought together a well matched band of older horses in the fourth race. - W. C. Weant supplied tlie winner in Kulah F. and her victory over Kuklux was a narrow one, getting up in Ihe closing stride to win by a nose., Smart Guy was a good third, while the favorite, Talisman, wiis a distant, trailer. Jockey C. Lang figured prominently in tlie aflcr-noons results, riding three winners and one second. He scored witli Chloris and Thorny Way in the first and second niees respectively and was astride Duke Ruff when he beat. Rrisk and other good platers in the sixth, a dash of "a mile and" a sixteenth. ". W. C. Weant lias secured a call on the services of jockey II. J. Rurke for the coming meeting at Windsor. AVeant has had the services of several riders litis year, but appears better suited witli Rurke than any previous one. W. A. Porter arrived from Saratoga this morning to confer witli tminer W. Schoficld, in charge of tlie J. K. Ii. Ross stable here. Jockeys W. Hciniscli and A. Richcreek, for disobedience at tlie post on Saturday, were suspended for the closing days racing. Trainer J. H.

Rissell horses to await tlie opening at that point. A. L. Kirby has turned over to T. Hodge the platers Sweet Patutie and Diamond Dale for lacing at Montreal. Tlie management announced this morning that all outstanding tickets will be paid at tlie race track instead of the city office as has been the practice in the past.
