KTJMMER RESENTS A CHARGE SARATOGA SPRINGS, N. Y., August 17. Jockey Clarence Kummer, under contract to J. S. Cosden, made a complaint to the stewards against J. W. "Bub" May, trainer for H. W. Howard. His complaint was over the charge that May accused him of pulling Frigate in his race at the Yonkers track on July S, when he was beaten by Thimble. Kummer went before the stewards Wednesday with his complaint and was questioned at some length by August Belmont, Joseph E. Widener and Walter S. Vosburgh. It is said that Kummer made no charge against May until ordered to do so by his employer. In the race in question Frigate raced a close second to Thimble until well in the stretch and in the last eighth she drew out to win easily. The comment at the time or the race was that Frigate had tired at the end. That was the only race in which Frigate was started during the Yonkers meeting and, in defense of Kummer, it was said that the horse was plainly short and that he did not like the track. As a .result of the Kummer complaint May was reprimanded and warned.
