ARRIVALS AT BOWIE TRACK Horses of R. T. Wilson, Robert L. Gerry, August Belmont and C. A. Stoneham on Ground. BALTIMORE, Md., November 16. The stables of Richard T. Wilhon, Robert L. Gerry, August Belmont and Charles A. Stoneham are among those quartered at Bowie for the meeting of the Southern Maryland -Agricultural Association, that begins next Saturday to run through to November 30. Prominent in the "Wilson stable is Tangerine, a son of Olambala, which was as good as any two-year-old that raced at Bowie last fall, barring Hephaistos. Sedge-field, Vendor, Duncccap and a couple of two-year-olds are with Tangerine. Young Bell, a promising lightweight development of New York summer racing, will do Mr. j "Wilsons riding. Thomas Ilealey has the string in charge. Ilealey hoped to have "Wilderness and Tall Timber in condition for the ,000 Endurance race, a gallop of one mile, and Bowies prospective two-year-old feature, but both went wrong at Pimlico. The Gerry and Belmont strings are together and in charge of George M. Odom, for whom McAteo is riding. Mr. Gerrys best Bowie prospects are tho two-year-olds "William Tell and Cyclops, the last named winner of the Occanus Handicap at Jamaica and the Hartsdale at Yonkers, both products of "William Woodwards Belair Farm, which is only a few miles distant from Bowie track to tho south. Mr. Belmonts horses ready for racing are the two-year-olds Amusement, How Fair, Osprey and Lustrous, all winners. How Fair and Osprey will probably bear the silks of the chairman of the Jockey Club in the Endurance Stakes. With these Belmont and Gerry horses Odom has brought his own racer, Modo, and R. Penn Smiths sprinter Arrow of Gold. Dry Moon, Peddler, Flannel Shirt and Marionette are among the fit horses of the Stoneham string, of which A. J. Goldsbor-cugh is trainer. Goldsborough brought Yellow Hand to Maryland for Mr. Stoneham last fall and Prince James for Charles H. Thieriot this year. Both horses had bad luck in Maryland. Dry Moon, holder of the Aqueduct record of 1:17 for six and a half furlongs, is a brilliant sprinter. Peddler is a promising two-year-old maiden. Flannel Shirt is a good three-year-old and Marionette a fleet two-year-old filly.
