LAUREL, Md., October IS The Quincy Stables Bluemont accounted for the Arlington Handicap, which occupied the stellar position on the card at Laurel Park this afternoon. He won in an impressive manner .from Harry Payne Whitneys Transom, while .Carol, which was coupled with the winner, finished third. It was a well-matched field of juveniles that paraded for the running of the race and the Quincy pair were accorded handsome support in the machines. The field was dispatched in good alignment and Heeltaps forced to the front, closely pressed by Carol, while Bluemont and Transom were tardy in finding their racing legs. Heeltaps never got very far away from Carol at any stage, while Bluemont was working his way up next to the inner rail. Entering the stretch Kummer sent Martingale through on the inside and drew even with the leaders, while Ponce, on Bluemont, elected to come to the outside. Heeltaps and Carol began to show signs of distress from their early pacemaking efforts and both tired, while Bluemont caused a slight jam at the eighth post when he bore over toward the inner rail. Transom, in the meantime, after making a wide turn at the stretch, came with a rush, but did not menace the winner, and finished second a half length in front of Carol. DROP IN TEMPERATURE. There was a decided drop in the tcmpera-: turc this afternoon and as a result winter wraps were in demand despite the fact that overhead conditions were of a cheerful kind. The crowd was well up to the standard and their journey to the course was a profitable one. for the majority of winners were accorded extensive support. A claiming handicap, at a mile and a sixteenth, was offered as the secondary feature and resulted in a surprise when C. Phillips Colando was returned the winner from Slippery Elm. with Servitor third. J. E. Davis Quecreek was eliminated at the start when he was caught in the webbing. Colando went to the front at once and, saving ground on the first turn, drew away into a safe lead, with Servitor in nearest pursuit, and By Jiminy and Slippery Elm some distance back. Entering the stretch Colando hugged the inside rail and Servitor, which attempted to go through an impossible opening, was blocked and forced to come to the outside. Colando still held to his task in a courageous manner and held Slippery Elm safe at the end. Servitor managed to take the small end of the purse from Dresden.
