JOCKEY HAWKINS IS KILLED SPECIAL CABLEGRAM. PARIS, France, December 15. Charles Hawkins, steeplechase jockey, was killed in a fall during the running of a hurdle rac3 at Auteuil yesterday. Hawkins will be recalled as the rider of Sergeai; Murphy, Stephen Sanfords starter in the Grand National Steeplechase, contested over the Aintree course at Liverpool last spring. Hawkins was an Englishman, but most of his riding has been done in France in recent years. During the running of the Grand National Hawkins had little opportunity to show his skill. Sergeant Murphy fell at the Canal turn and his mishap brought nine other starters to grief. After the elimination of Duettiste from the early wagering on the race, Sergeant Murphy had become the choice and dependence of the American contingent to win the big English steeplechase. Stephen Sanford, the owner of Sergeant Murphy, is a son of John Sanford, owner of the Sanford Stud Farms, Inc., of Amsterdam, N. Y.
