LADIES DAY AT COLUMBUS Goodly Crowd in Attendance at Beulah Park Despite the Threatening Weather. COLUMBUS, Ohio. April 18.— Despite the threatening condition of the weather and a brisk shower about race time, the ladies day turnout swelled the attendance at Beulah Park this afternoon, equalling as large a crowd as that of the opening day. The track was still slow and the overhead conditions remained threatening throughout the afternoon. The card was devoid of any special feature, but was well filled and evenly balanced fields paraded in all of the seven events which were productive of interesting contests. After racing Jim Smick into early defeat. Rose Stark graduated from the maiden ranks when she retained a short margin over the fast finishing Hose Mary Ryan at the conclusion of the opening number. Detroit was best f the others. Wish-ton-Wish was taken into the lead shortly after the start of the second race and never relinquished the lead. Happy Hobo provided the contention throughout, but was doing his best at the end to save the second place from the fast finishing Miss Fortune. Opening up a commanding early lead. Patrick Sarsfield made a runaway affair of the third race. Hapsburg Miss handily retained second place from Perhaps. The latter was a victim of bad racing luck during the early stages and closed a wide gap through the last quarter. Although Gussie P. was eventually returned a handy winner of the fourth dash she was closely pressed by Why for the greater part of the race, and only secured a clear lead entering the final eighth. Why tired but retained the second portion of the purse from the fast finishing Iady Busch. Following a slow beginning. Press Gang was fortunate in securing an opening on the inside when the leaders raced wide at the stretch turn in the fifth and this advantage enabled him to score decisively. Charette outlasted the tiring Amy A. for second after i both had been carried wide by Mahatma, the pacemaker, while rounding the turn for home. Moving up with a bold challenge after going three-quarters in the sixth, Cherebu raced over Barrister, the pacemaker, to a handy victory during the last quarter. Barrister held Blue Caddie safe during the stretch for second money. Barber Bill, prominent in the early stages, quit badly. For disobedience while at the post, jockey F. Armstrong was set down for three days by starter Dean. *.
