MASTER CHARLIE WINS W. Daniels Crack Two-Year-Old Continues Winning Way. Easily. Accounts for Stamina Purse at Empire Disqualification in Final Race. TONKERS, N. Y., Oct 22. Though there was no stake down for decision at the Hilltop track for the "Wednesday racing, the overnight offerings were decidedly interesting and it was a goodly crowd that was out for the occasion. Some of the finishes were excitingly close. The best offering of the day was the Stamina purse at a mile and seventy yards for the juveniles and it was of especial interest for the reason that it brought to the post W. Daniels Master Charlie, winner of the Hopeful and the Remsen Handicap and a candidate for the Kentucky Jockey Club Stakes at Churchill Downs as well as the mile prizes at Pimlico. Kummer rode him in faultless fashion and at the end he was the winner by a half length over Despot, from the Thomas Welsh stable, while Robert Odoms Sumpter was third. There was no delay at the post, and the field left in good alignment. Kummer took Master Charlie to the front and Repulse was the one to go along after him, while Idiosyncrasy and Sumpter were next in order, with the others well bunched. Repulse began to feel the early pace and before the far turn -was reached began to falter. Sumpter and Goldbeater both made their bids rounding the turns and, swinging for home. Master Charlie lost little ground, although Sumpter came through on the inside. Master Charlie clung to his task with good courage and, shaking off determined opposition, held his opponents safe despite the fact that he bore out slightly through the final eighth of the journey. Despot came along, with a rush when straightened out in the stretch, and finished stoutly, although Kummer gauged his bid in a clever fashion and held the advantage. Goldbeater, after making his bid at the turn, quit badly, and -Sumpter was a good third. The winner ran the journey in 1:44, which was one of the most impressive performances of the meeting. Master Charlie was supported with rare confidence and the victory was a most popular one. II.- T. "WATERS IN FRONT One of the real good races, of the day was the short three-quarters for all ages. It brought together a fast field and H. M. Howards H. T. Waters proved best when he led home Harry Payne "Whitneys Miss Whisk, with W. R. Coes Elvina beating L. Rosenbergs Sun Audience for third place. Miss Whisk was the one to cut out the pace. Leaving the barrier quickly she jumped into a lead of a length in the first sixteenth, and James Butlers two-year-old Pique chased after her. That is, he chased after her until approaching the turn out of the backstretch, where H. T. Waters circled around and was soon in second place and racing strongly. Elvina in the meantime was going strongly next to the inner rail and, in fact, going so well that she looked all over a winner three-eighths from the finish. Sun Audience was also moving up fast on the outside and going well, while the others were more or less strung out Swinging into the stretch H. T. Waters was alongside of Miss Whisk, and before the eighth post was reached McAtee had gone to the whip on the filly in an effort to hold the lead. It was of no avail and at the end H. T. Waters beat her by three parts of a length. Making the turn for home Callahan went to the outside, losing ground with Elvina, and at the final pinch she tired badly, being beaten by Miss Whisk, though she in turn beat Sun Audience by a length for third. FRIGATE IN TIGIIT FINISH. The mile and sixteenth handicap brought about a good contest, and a rattling finish when H. M. Howards Frigate was up in time to score from F. M. Kelleys Long Point with J. C. Claires Feysun a good third over the Swingalong Stables Fredericktown. The race was marred to some degree by the start, when Wilkcs-Barre was all but left at the post He had swerved out slightly a3 the barrier arose and Weiner could not have him straight until any chance he might hava enjoyed was gone. Long Point was first to show out of the field and Robinson shot him away into a lead of three lengths before the backstretch was reached, Frigate, on the inside, was leading the others, with McAuliffe further out on the track and showing the way to Feysun. The others were more or less strung out. Wilkes-Barre was lengths back of the field. Long Point held to his command until the stretch but Frigate was right after him, and holding the others perfectly safe. Then, in the last eighth Callahan called on Frigate in earnest, and after a short drive he went on by Long Point-to be winner by a length. The Continued on sixteenth page. MASTER CHARLIE WINS Continued from first page. Kelley three-year-old stuck it out to save second place by half a length over Feysun and Fredericktown. A disqualification came out of the final race of the afternoon when Gladys V., was set back for interference with Intrepid at the far turn. Reliable saved second, while Intrepid was third. Collins, astride Intrepid, lodged a claim of foul, which was allowed. The Joaquin Stables Canister proved best of the two-year-old fillies that came together in the opening five and a half furlongs and after slipping through on the inside at the head of the stretch she readily led home A. W. Koiviilas Mixture, while W. R. Coes Sweet Grass was the one. to be third. On the way to the post J. E. Maddens Mamselle ran off with George Cooper and she circled the track at half speed before she was pulled up. In the running she was not asked to fully extend herself after this misfortune. Mixture was the one to force most of the pace, but she ran out slightly at the head of the stretch and it was there that Canister came through to beat her home. Sweet Grass was outrun badly in the early stages, and forced to go wide making the turn for home. She closed considerable ground and was going well at the end. For a second offering a cheap bunch went to the post in the mile and seventy yards race. It was G. C. Winfreys Insulator that was winner over Ira Penhocks Pathan, and James Butlers Delysia raced into third place. Quarantine and Skirmish were the ! ones to cut out the running for the first three-quarters, but tired thereafter. Insulate ! slipped through at the head of the stretch 1 and went into a safe lead before the eighth 1 post was reached. Pathan was far out of it all through the early running and as a result" when he made his run he had to lose much ground at the I head of the stretch, coming around the . tired field. He was closing right at the end. His 5 move came too late. Delysia also closed some ground, while both Quarantine and Skirmish tired badly and stopped to nothing in the last quarter.
