DARK AND DREARY . Mondays Racing at Hawthorne Held in Semi-Darkness. Good Crowds Present Nevertheless Moss Fox II. Luckily Wins Bidwell Handicap. Disregarding weather conditions and with the Hawthorne course in semi-darkness a Monday crowd ranging between Ave and six thousand were on hand for the opening race of the second weeks program under the auspices of the Illinois Jockey Club, v. It was utterly impossible to distinguish cplors on the backstretch during the running ofthe first race on the afternoons program. A fiblil of seven starters faced the barrier in this encounter, with Ormont, the bay son of Rock View Bandana, from the Baxter and Stubbs establishment, under the guidance of jockey J. Kederis, the winner. However, Kederis confidence nearly cost him the race, when the colored rider C. Dishmon brought the H. Webb and Companys Crudenas up with a sudden rush and nearly caught the winner at the end. Zapatos, from the stable of W. J. Bowling, saved ground and finished a game third. J. M. Hubbards Paula, under jockey S. McGraw, was the early pacemaker, but was unable to continue in the heavy going, and finished a tired fourth. LORD ALLEN 2fEAB.LT FALLS. The fourth race, the Bidwell Handicap, was offered as the feature attraction of the afternoon. It was for all ages at five and a half furlongs for a purse of ,000 and with the field narrowed down to four starters and run under a slowly clearing sky furnished a perfect getaway and a good contest for the entire distance. Moss Fox II., a bay daughter of Mess Fox Bachelors Blend, from the W. C. Weant establishment, ridden by C. Dishmon, was the winner after good performance. Lord Allen, J. J. Ashes three-year-old son of Frizzle Mary King, might have reversed the decision had he not stumbled rounding the turn into the homestretch. However, he quickly regained his stride and was going fast at the finish to beat Mrs. i It. M. Hoots Tuscola for second place. Coyle followed Tuscola home three lengths in the rear, evidently disliking the heavy going. The second race was contested under the same dark weather conditions. It was a three-quarter mile race, for three-year-olds and over, under claiming conditions, with a field of six facing the starter. Cain and San-fords Delhimar, a chestnut son of Delhi Marion Rose II., in a fast stretch battle out-gamed J. P. Bakers Batty H. and drew clear to win by six lengths. It, the chestnut son of Norito Bemay, from the stable of Mrs. W. D. Millard, finished in third position after racing Incognance into defeat in the last seventy yards. The latter, having set the pace at the start, was unable to keep up the speed in the heavy gong, and finished tired out. LINA CLARK BEATS HALTJ. The third race, a sprinting dash of three-quarters, for a purse of ?1,000, for three-year-olds and over, brought to the post a field of five well-matched starters and was won by J. J. Ashes Lina Clark, a bay filly by Delhi Prism, under the vigorous riding of jockey R. Doyle, with C. Irbys Halu, ridden by A. Trombley, a well-meant one in this field, finishing in second place by a wide margin. Diomed, owned by W. C. "Weant and ridden by J. Kederis, had a ten length lead over the other two starters. Cleopatra Boy caused some delay at the barrier in the fifth race by his fractiousness. There was a field of eight starters in this race and the start was the worst of the meeting to date. F. R. Irwins Money, the eight-year-old bay gelding, by Dick Finnell Metrical, showed a great liking for the heavy going and led the others from the start, to win by five lengths from Edna D., the Ballot filly which last Friday provided a big surprise by defeating Jacobina by a nose. Edna D. was ridden by L. Gray and saved ground at the turns, but was going her best at the end. Madrono, a Ions shot, came from behind during the stretch racing to finish a game third. Elias O. and Fitz-Boodle both ran good races in the heavy going. N. K. Eeal tired badly at the end. The final encounter of the afternoons program, a claiming race, at a mile and seventy yards, with a field of five starters facing the barrier, where "Woodie Montgomery Med to behave himself, resulted in a victory K good old campaigner Honolulu Boy, iie J. Masterson establishment, and by J. Kederis, while Tokalon March, r$ t"iY M- IcPherson, with JL Doyle up, Wv. xnd.

All in all, it was a great day for the followers of form, with the exception of Or-mont in the first and Moss Fox II. in the fourth races, the spectators found little trouble in selecting the other winners. Starter George T. Miller suspended jockey J. Singleton for two days for disobedience at the post on Woodie Montgomery in the last race. Due to the shortage of cars and inability ol horsemen to reach Hawthorne for tho second weeks racing, starter George T. Miller decided to take off all horses, with the exception of Incognance, placed on the schooling list. Ed Henry, well-known turf follower, and A. C. Pool motored over from St. Louis, Mo., to enjoy the racing for the remaining days of the meeting. Rising Rock, from the C. Irby stable, which took down with lung fever en route to Hawthorne ten days ago, died Sunday morning. Colonel C. E. Hawkins and Major E. O. Trowbridge of the U. S. Remount Service will remain at Hawthorne for the remainder of the meeting, during which time they expect to make a great showing in the membership drive which started Saturday.
