ANOTHER FOR F. J. KELLEY Chicago Turfmans Colors Again Carried to Victory at Churchill Downs. LOUISVILLE, Ky., August 31. Frank J. Kelley, the well-known Chicago sportsman and turf patron, again annexed the feature offering on the Churchill Downs card when his Gangway, making his first start since his fall at Latonia during the summer, scored in easy style from the four others that tried conclusions with him in the three-quarters purse. Jeanne Bowdre was closest to. him at the finish, with the diminutive Atta Boy II. leading the others in riiird place. Gangway showed a fine performance to cover the distance in 1:12 and had it been necessary he could have lowered the time considerably. Kennedy had him in hard restraint during the first half mile, while Jeanne Bowdre was forcing a stiff pace, but when he called on Gangway he displaced the Keene filly from the lead with ease and moved out to win decisively, though not extended. Intense heat prevailed this afternoon, but a fairly representative attendance was on hand to view the sport Because of interruption to street railway service to the track the post time of the first race this afternoon was delayed fifteen minutes. Bright Tomorrow and Bit o Black will be shipped from Saratoga to join the E. R. Bradley division here. Jockey A. Wilson will be an arrival from Saratoga tomorrow to take up riding for the Bradley stable here. Banter is not sick, as erroneously reported, and was worked this morning. Clyde Van Dusen is a recent arrival from Lexington. He brought the horses belonging to W. C. Goodloe, that included Louden, Dr. Gilbert, Brown Eyes and Sister Vincena. Roscoe Goose reported that Mary Pal, a brown filly by Esfcoba Effect had died from fever contracted en route from Saratoga to Churchill Downs. V
