I i MORE ENTRIES FOR DERBY Seagram Stable Names Digit and Malapert — H. P. Whitney Nominates Two. The Chicago Derby took on an added importance yesterday when the entries of the Seagram Stable of Waterloo, Ont., were received. The horses entered were Digit and Malapert Digit is a superior mud runner and beat a high class band of all aged horses at Toronto. If the track at Hawthorne be muddy the day of the Derby, he will have to be reckoned with. The Seagrams have been identified with Canadian racing for years and the late Joseph E. Seagram, who founded the stable, was one of the foremost of Canadian sportsmen, whose horses figured conspicuously not only in Canada but in this country as well. The Business Mens Racing Association regards the entry as a high compliment In a letter from Herman Conkling came belated entries to the Derby and confirmation of some already received. One of the interesting points in the letter was the entries of Klondyke and Initiate from the Harry Payne Whitney stable. When Judge Murphy was in New York, Mr. Rowe, trainer of the stable, told him his three-year-olds were not doing well. The entry may mean that the stable will be a keen contender for the prize_ A new entry from the East was that of Frank Farrells Time Exposure. The letter also confirmed the entries of Nellie Morse, the Preakness winner, Mr. Mutt, Relentless, Nautical, Fabian, Sarazen and Polo Ground. Yesterdays arrivals were the stables of Louis Marshall, the Ahearn Stable, the Florida Stable and several smaller ones. The Stotler horses will be in the middle of the week. One of Judge Murphys personal letters yesterday was one of the most gratifying to date. It was from Chas. A. Comiskey, president of the White Sox. In his letter, Comiskey said : "There is no doubt in anyones mind that Chicago is the greatest city in the country for sports of all kinds and any sport that is properly conducted can succeed. Chicago is sufficiently large to support everything that its citizens want and I wish you every success in your undertaking." Chas. Essig, resident manager ; John Irwin, chairman of the club, and Judge Murphy spent the morning at the track. They found the clubhouse approaching completion. The furniture will be installed early next week, and the club will be ready for inspection of members.
