YANKEE TURFMEN SEE FRENCH RACING PARIS, France, September 10. The Franco-Americans know all about Morvich over here, and are all pleased that Burlew lias such a smasher. On todays ship Messrs. Cassatt, Clark and W. P. Thompson are all sailing for New York. The latter tells us he has a "one-horse stable," and if it is as good as the Irish Lad one was, it will be all right. Mr. Du Bos bought two handsome yearlings for F. R. Hitchcock, and everybody is pleased that his colors will be seen perhaps more often next year over here. Mr. Hitchcocks present horse Upsalvltch is just about the most consistent second place runner that one can imagine. It always seems that there is something to take his measure. Mrs. Duryca is regularly at the races, when not down at Haras Gazon looking over the mares and the foals. She sold her yearlings privately to Marcel Boussac. Among others at Chantilly the other d;iy were Charles W. Clark and Robert Cassatt, the latter quite a reminder of The Bard, Heel and Toe, and the French tricolor of his father back in the eighties. W. A. Chanler also was racing, and it seemed much like old times to see "Bob" Rose and "Gene" - Leigh talking together. What a useful horse Clifford would have been the other after noon in the one and one-quarter inile race.
