VETERAIN TRAINER DEAD NEW YORK, N. Y., June 26. Frank Mc-Cabe, one of the veterans of the American turf, died at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Lawrence A. Powers, Brooklyn, Thursday morning, after a long illness. McCabe first came to the turf as a jockey and when he was graduated from that line of endeavor he succeeded James Rowe as trainer for the Dwyer Brothers, when that stable was one of the strongest in the country. At that time McCabe trained Hanover and Miss Woodford among other good ones. Later McCabe was trainer for Phil Dwyer after the dissolution of the partnership. For Phil Dwyer he trained Handspring and other good ones that raced for the president of the Brooklyn Jockey Club. McCabe had been in ill health for a considerable time and it was the fact that caused his retirement from the ranks of the traners. He leaves besides his daughter, Mrs. Powers, four grandchildren.
