SPIRITED FORT ERIE RACES Exciting Finishes Mark Most of the Decisions. Last One Proves Best in the Main Race of the Day A Fall an Incident. FORT ERIE, Ont.. August 14. The Buffalo News Handicap, which was at three-quarters, under claiming conditions, was offered as the feature attraction this afternoon and served to bring out a speedy band, but the winner came from an unexpected quarter when F. C. Pauls Last One, ridden by Corey, got home the winner in a spirited drive from J. K. L. Ross Messines, while Siren Maid was third. The winner made the running through-out and set a fast pace. Last One was first away from the barrier and drew away into a safe lead. Messines was away slowly and closed an immense gap and probably would have won in a few more strides. The time of the race was 1 :12. Hot and sultry weather prevailed this afternoon and a crowd of more than the average Monday attendance journeyed to Uie track. Racing was of a spirited order, despite the upsets. The majority of the winners were forced to stand severe drives throughout the stretch. A fall which marked the running of the opening dash occurred as the field was rounding the far turn, in which Flying .Tacque stumbled and went down. Jockey Weiner, who rode him, was severely shaken up and forced to cancel his mounts for the remainder of the afternoon. The winner turned up in Maypole, which in a spirited drive had a lengths advantage over Doubtful, and Iso-morphous was third. JOCKEY AVEIXEU HURT IX FALL. A thrilling duel was witnessed when Kn-crinite and Katherine Rankin fought it out in the fifth race, which was at a mile and seventy yards. The former gained the verdict in the final nod. The race was marked Ly the exceptionally fast time in which Theo and Beverly Belle raced each other into exhaustion and at the end had nothing to do with the finish. Encrinte was accorded weak support in the wagering. Trainer W. Irvine reported this afternoon that he had turned out the handicap horse Mainmast, which would be freshened up for the fall racing season in Maryland. R. A. Watkins was an arrival from New York this morning and will remain for a few days racing. A. Swinke has decided to ship from here to Ottawa and rest until racing is resumed at that point. Thomas Gorman and J. K. Paisley were arrivals from Ottawa this morning, interesting horsemen in the forthcoming meeting to be held at that point. William Newman has decided to ship the plater May Roberts to Timonium. Md., and he will enter Johns Hopkins Hospital to undergo treatment. There will be a general scattering of horses from this point. Eighteen cars have been routed to Windsor, three for Havre de Grace and five to Ottawa. Fornovo changed hands in the last race Saturday via the claiming route from Mrs. J. W. Smith to C. Buxton. W. M. Cains plater Marse John has fallen lame and will be on the ailing list for some time. H. J. Hernandez has sold to B. B. Rice, acting for H. E. Bilson, the plater Toe the Mark. Trainer William Irvine arrived from Saratoga this morning, where he had been attending the yearling sales, and took over the E. F. Whitney horses, which will be shipped to Havre de Grace. Seven yearlings were purchased at Saratoga and were transferred to the Whitney farm at Syosset, L. L, where they will be given their preliminary racing lessons. A filly, sister to Flying Cloud, which was purchased for ,300, could have been sold the next day for ?5,000, but Mr. Whitney would not entertain the proposition. Arthur Brent has purchased from A. Alexandra on private terms the plater Vibrate.
