ELIAS 0. THE WINNER I First in Principal Race of Mon- 1 days Program. Fine Weather and Fast Track Brings Out Attendance of Goodly Numbers. AURORA, 111., Sept 15. A series of claiming races made up the card for the eighth days racing at the Fox Valley Business Mens Racing Association. The weather was ideal ; for racing, the track was lightning fast and good time was made in ail the races. The Rialto Theater Purse was the feature and . six of the original nine carded to go ans- swered the bugle. The crowd, while not as large as on Saturday, was a good one for : Monday. The two twelve car specials that ; came from Chicago were well patronized. ; The fair sex was well represented. Forty-two . bookmakers cut in to quote the odds, six less than Saturday, some not recovering from the drubbing they took that day. The feature race of the day was won by W. C. "Weants Elias O. under a good ride by Boganowski, "with M. Lowensteins Fretwell second and Huon Pine, a long shot, third. The start was a good one, Fretwell taking the lead, with Huon Pine forcing the pace and Elias O. third in the run through the backstretch. Fretwell opened up what looked like a winning lead, with Huon Pine still forcing the pace, and Gross, on Rocky Mountain, had moved up to third, but Boganowski, who was riding with care, restrained Elias O. off the early pace and was content with fourth position. Huon Pine and Dorius, the other two starters, were following some distance back. Fretwell retained his lead turning into the stretch, and it looked like he was going to be an easy winner, but shortened his stride after reaching the eighth post It was at this point that Boganowski started his vigorous finish that landed Elias O. an easy winner, with Fretwell second and Huon Pine third, a head in front of Rocky Mountain, Dorius and Paul Micou finishing in the order named. MONTGOMERYS GOOD HIDE. Meddling Mattie, given a superb ride by the diminutive Montgomery, was the winner of the fifth race, which brought out the largest field of the day. W. C. "Weants Top o th Morning was second, with the favorite, Louise Wagner, third. After six minutes delay at the post due to the fractiousness of Rapid Stride, they were away in good order. Louise Wagner was the first to show from the bunch, with Keoalina second and Lucky Dollar third. Top o th Morning was in advance of the others. Meddling Mattie was moving up fast on the outside at the stretch turn. Montgomery had her in front, Louise Wagner dropping back to second and Lucky Dollar third. Saucier, on Whalebone, was circling his opponents and gaining rapidly. Meddling Mat-tie was the winner by a length in front of Top o th Morning, which beat Louise Wagner the same distance for the short end of the purse. The concluding dash fell to J. J. Ahearns inconsistent Black Grackle, which made a disgraceful showing in his previous start when he was an odds-on choice. Yorick was the one to be second, with Glentilt third. After a short delay at the barrier they were off in a mix up, Zucchini coming over sharply at the rise of the barrier, causing a jam which almost threw the horses on the inside. Luckily they recovered, but Jack Frost, which was the chief sufferer, went to his knees, unseating his rider. Lieut. Colonel went to the front, with Yorick and Glentilt in close attendance. In the run through the backstretch Ten Can moved up to second, with Glentilt third. They ran this way to the stretch turn where Smith, who had been rating Black Grackle behind the early pace, had worked his up on the outside and was in the lead at that point, with Yorick second and Glentilt third. Black Grackle was an easy winner by a length and a half with Yorick two lengths in front of Glentilt, which beat Lieut. Colonel by a head for the short end. FAVORITE WINS. Eight maidens paraded for the third race which was won by the heavily supported favorite Glanmore, with the long shot Squire McMasters second and Leontes, carrying the silks of J. T. Ferris, third. Squire McMasters was the one to cut out the pace with Hasty Miss second and Glanmore third. Hasty Miss ran out going into the turn carrying Glanmore with her. They ran this way up the backstretch where Barrett, which had lost considerable ground on Glanmore, rated his horse to perfection. Turning into the backstretch Squire McMasters still leading with Glanmore second and Hasty Miss dropping back to third, while Leontes which has been in the rear started to move up. The finish saw Glanmore a winner after a well timed stretch run with the early pacemaker Continued on sixteenth page. ELIAS 0. THE WINNER Continued from first page.

The first race of the day, a five furlong dash for three-year-olds, fell to the heavily supported favorite, Parnell, who was confidently ridden by J. Smith. Hole Card, a long shot from the stable of M. Cox, was second, a nose in front of W. T. Crosswaites Modesta, which beat J. L. Pauls June Day by a head for the short end of the purse. The start was poor with La Belle the first to show in front and Phyllis Gentry and Parnell in advance of the others. They ran in this position to the far turn on the backstretch, where Smith moved into second position with Parnell and Eaton advanced to third place with Hole Card. Helen G. and June Day were leading the others when they turned into the stretch, where Parnell took the lead and steadily increased it until he was the winner by three lengths with Hole Card second and Modesta third.
