ROCKMINISTER WORKS AGAIN Continued from first page. Jockey Russell McDermott joined forces with the John E. Madden stable this morning and will depart for New York with it next week. McDermott rode for J. S. Ownbey last winter. Death removed one of the most likable characters of the American turf when Edward Jasper, placing judge, handicapper and entry clerk at the three Kentucky tracks and an official at Oriental Park, Havana, passed away in Cincinnati yesterday. The news of his demise came as a shock to the horsemen and officials of the Kentucky Jockey Club here, as it was not generally known that he was seriously ill. He underwent an operation, necessitated by ulcers in his stomach, several days ago and pneumonia set in, hastening the end. It was just ten days ago when he returned from Cuba, where he officiated all winter as clerk of the scales, including other duties. Jasper had been active in racing circles for a quarter of a century and held positions at Ascot Park, Washington Park, Santa Anita, Worth, Harlem, Newport, Ky. ; Juarez, Mexico ; Churchill Downs, Douglas Park, Oriental Park, Tijuana, Lexington, Memphis, Empire City and Nashville. He began his turf career as marker of the jockeys board at Latonia for Louis Ezekiel and his application to duty soon gained him a place of prominence at various race tracks throughout the country. Early in life he aspired to the theatrical profession, but he did not remain at it long. Always cheerful and ready to tell a humorous story he gained immense popularity with the horsemen and others connected with racing. His duties as entry clerk brought him into contact with thousands of turfmen during his long service and he was ever ready to assist them in every possible manner. Jasper had few equals as a handicapper and his judgment of weights to be carried by horses in handicaps was almost invariably found to be correct. Many a horseman who complained before a race that he thought his horse overburdened came to Jasper after winning and congratulated him upon his ability as a weight adjuster. His death marks the second of a high official in the Kentucky Jockey Club within a short period, Harry Breivogel, resident manager at Latonia, having expired several weeks ago. Jasper is survived by a widow and four children, who reside at 2412 Highland avenue, Cincinnati. * «
