LEADING ENGLISH JOCKEYS SPECIAL CABLEGRAM. LONDON, England, Sept 4. C. Elliott, the young jockey who two years ago, when an apprentice, finished the flat racing season in second place in the list of winning jockeys, and who last year ousted Steve Donoghue from the position of premier jockey, which place he had held for nine successive years, is the leading jockey this year, with C3 winners out of a total of 36D mounts, an average of 17.07. II. Wragg, with 57 winning starts, out of a total of 282, is in second place, having the high average of 20.21. R. A. Jones also rode 57 winners, but rode in 359 races, having an average of only 15.87.
