DREARY DAY AT JAMAICA . Base Ball and an Ordinary Card Diminish the Attendance. Hullabaloo Shows nis Heels to Muskallonge in the Belgrade Selling Stakes Thorn-liedge Beats "Winneconne. o NEW YORK, N. Y., October 4. W. C. Clancys Hullabaloo was an easy winner of the Belgrade Selling Stakes, which was the feature offering of the Metropolitan Jockey Club at Jamaica today. It was worth ,375 to the winner and when the clumsy but speedy son of Peter Pan found his way clear in the first few strides there was little to the subsequent running. He soon raced into a long lead and it was at no time close. The counter-attraction of the opening of the championship baseball season had its affects on the Jamaica attendance and the crowd was the smallest since the opening of the meeting. The weather was all that could be desired for the sport and the track at its best, but the class of horses engaged was hardly up to the usual New York standard. After Nose Dive and Amanda Hoey had been scratched from the Belgrade Stakes there were only four left to race, Hullabaloo being opposed by Muskallonge, Elected II. and Polythia. No time was lost at the barrier and as it rose Elected II. began slowly, but the others were off on the same stride. Hullabaloo at once rushed into the lead, with Muskallonge chasing after him and the latter was the only one that gave even the semblance of a contest. At the head of the stretch Sande tried hard to drive the Fisher starter to the flying leader, but it was of no avail and at the end Hullabaloo had a safe advantage. Muskallonge beat Elected II. by two and a half lengths for second place, while the latter just got up in time to take third from Polythia in the last stride. ALLIE OCHS VICTRESS. William Daniels little filly Allie Ochs was the winner of the opening five and a half furlongs dash for selling plater two-year-olds. She was lucky at the start and made all the running, but at the end was doing her best to beat Dicks Daughter, while Homestretch came with a rush at the end to take third money from Avalanche. Avalanche was the victim of some misfortune in the running. He had beaten Allie Ochs away, but when he could not hold the early lead he was next to the rail in close quarters. At the head of the stretch he saared ground, but in the rush home was sharply cut off by the winner and she was finally shuffled out of the money, by reason of his position on the inside. C. K. Moores Thornhedge was home first in the mile and a sixteenth of the second race when he scored from Winneconne, with Regal Lodge a fast-coming third. Back of them were Orcus and Kirklevington. Fred Burlews Valentia had to do her best to win from Esquire in the third race. Transient was rather a distant third, but well in front of Bright Lights, which was given a woefully weak ride by Martz. No time was lost at the barrier and the start was a good one. Esquire rushed right to the front, but Valentia, beginning from the outside, was right after him. Bright Lights had left forwardly, but Martz did not ride him as diligently as he should in a three-quarters race, and he soon dropped back. After the finish Valentia was bid up from her entered selling price of ,000 to ,000, at which figure she was surrendered to W. L. Young. OVERTAKE IN LAST STRIDE. Overtake, racing for John Zauner, was the winner of the mile and seventy yards fifth race when he caught Leghorn right at the end to beat her by a neck. Ralco was rather a distant third and back of him were Daydue and The Roll Call. James Osborne, starter on many race tracks in the United States and Canada, died at his home in Brooklyn Tuesday night, after a long illness. Osborne was officiating as starter at Shreveport, La., during February of last year, when he was stricken with paralysis. He was bed ridden from that time until his death. He lived at 2340 Whitman Avenue, Brooklyn, N. Y., from where the funeral will be conducted.
