LADIES DAY AT CLEVELAND Immense Crowd in Attendance at Maple Eeights M. Fator Star Eider With Four Winners. CLEVELAND, Ohio, July 21. Ladies Day was inaugurated at Maple Heights Park this afternoon and the fair sex showed their appreciation of the invitation by turning out in large numbers to witness the sport which was staged under ideal conditions. It was estimated that the attendance numbered seven thousand, the largest midweek-day crowd since racing was introduced at this course. Closing with gameness on the inside through the stretch J. J. Hertzs Fifty-Fifty captured the Lake Shore Handicap, which featured the card at Maple Heights Park this afternoon. It was only after a thrilling stretch struggle, however, that he managed to beat John S. Reardon by a neck. In the closing stages Coffield, from a slow beginning, outgamed the favorite. Last One, for the show honors. Col. Taylor cut out a sizzling pace in this race, which enabled the Hertz representative to establish a new track record for the live and one-half furlongs of 1:05. With four winners to his credit the riding of the promising apprentice jockey, M. Fator, was an outstanding feature of this afternoons sport. His clever riding alone was responsible for the victory of Fifty-Fifty. He also rode an intelligent race on Bees AVing to capture the sixth, after Dancer had appeared an easy winner at the turn for home. Fator commenced his success with the running of the initial dash, in which he piloted Barriskane to an easy victory after leading by a comfortable margin throughout. After Musito and Dr. Hall had raced one another into defeat in the second race, Fator brought Colonel Matt to the fore and scored an easy victory for S. Polk, his contract employer. Fator is now the leading rider at this meeting. While galloping a two-year-old here this morning jockey T. Allen received a severe shaking up when the horse fell with him. Judge F. W. Gerhardy was an arrival today from Windsor. He will serve as one of the stewards here until Friday next, when he will depart for Hamilton, to officiate luring the second meeting at that city.

Holman and Joseph Catteranisch will depart for Toledo, Ohio, tomorrow evening to confer with B. AV. Bean in regard to completing the details for the six-day meeting scheduled to open there on August 11.

All indications point to a most successful inauguration of the sport at Mau-mee Park.
