GOING AT PIMLICO IS IMPROVING. Track Still Heavy but Drying , Out Coup with Sam Bernard Fails. Baltimore. Md., October :!0. The track at Pimlico today was a great improvement over that of yes- terday, but was still heavy. The going had in- jured the entry list somewhat, but for all that the races were full of interest and the public had a fair day in the speculative arena.

Mr. Clietiands Kiintshaw, a winner on the northern circuit, of which much was expected, refused tlie second time around. The handicap was an easy thing for the light-weighted St. Jeanne, which got oft Hying and cantered all the way. The favor- ite. I.adv Karma, ran a shocking race and finished last. T. E. Mannix put over one of his occasional good tilings in the last race, winning with Ivanhoe, sec- ond choice in the betting. Henry rode a well-judged race on the winner.
