It is not known as jet u ne wiJl l?e the one chosen to fur-n.h the bankroll, but 'the information comes from good authority that syndicate booking will rule there agair.i this season. ' Among the horsea W. A. Kirwan took to Missouri and turned out for a rest up at Barney Schreiber's Woodland Farm from Latonia were Charles Fox, Iwalanl and Danovan. The latter, brother to Dr. Gardner, has not run since the spring meeting here, when J. C. Cahn had him In charge. Kirwan will bring a string of the Schrelber horses to Churchill Downs for the coming fall meeting, and Donovan end Iwalani will probably be in the collection. At present all the hands at Woodland Farm are engaged in breaking the yearlings, of 'which there are upward of. eighty head. Schrelber also has some yearlings at the farm he has under lease in California. He told TfuTner Carroll B. Reid at Latonia that he owned now 600 head of thoroughbred horses, more than any other man In the world owns so far as la positively known. The report is again revived that Cool, the getamc an attempt was made to make a killing- with in a race here last spring, was really Arasee, and this is the reason the horse was not allowed to enter at Salt Lako City recently, us it is aaid the management there, has proof that Cool is a "ringer." Just how much money was around to bet on this horse last spring will never bo known, but according to gossip it was mammoth In proportions. It sGoms on handlook man anoroached on the race was tendered uny part of JS0.OQO he cured to accent en Cool at pari- mutuel prices. He 'was already loaded up on the brown gelding and laid oft some ot the bets he then held on the horse, and that monev xrpnt tn ChLcatro. from Wh' it was laid off at St. Louis, and from the Mound City It came back to the track here. The horse tost the race because he was shy one good workout. It was an accident that won out for the handbook men, as with another workout Cool would have walked hnmp At that, they won ligiulv on the race, whereas they could have gathered In thousands had they had tho nerve to take the mones. One odd feature of the case is that the men who came forth and identified the horwe as the Coo that was at Juarez, Mexico, last wftuer. were anxious to bet on tho brown gelding at any price, though they explained this by the Unowkdge they had that before coming to Louisville Cool had worked the foreign track a mlJe nndpr 1-41 is thp linr fniled to Win It matters little now in Louisville whether ! he was Cool or Arasee. If he -was a "ringer" he Is dio nrst to run here since Tanner as Little Dan grabbed a pune here in the days of the lato Col. M. Lewis Clark. That race was aa clear a steal as the Tanner-Polk Bad-get race at Latonia near about the same time-. After the race the conspirators spirited Little Dan off the track, only remaining long enough to ascertain the horse had been officially placed first and the bets would be paid. They never came back for the silken bag that hung across the track with tho purse inclosed in It. but sent word from a car on a siding near the course for Judge Clark to take it and buy him a new' red necktie. The famous racing official had on a tie of that description that day. Of course, Judge Clark ruled off tho men entering the horse, his trainer as on the card and Little Tan oft the turf, and the incident closed. Tho horse was played tightly at tho track. It was the poolrooms throughout the country that got the scorching. The best odds laid against him was 7 to 1.

No one realizes better than ho that ho is not generally considered so much a player of bail as he is a mechanism for delivering bolls to tho opposing batsmen. The distinction.

Have you never noticed the desperate eagerness with wluch a pitcher neius : ha isii-via tn r-AC'Jn the irame. loves to figure in a put-out.

The pitcher, for Instance, sees all the fast and curve balls from behind. He can tell as soon as lie lets u ball go whether it Is going over or not. although, of course, he hasn't any sure Idea what the umpire Is going to say about it W'hen the pitcher comes to the bat he begins to see oalls coming at him instead of away from lilm; he has to judge their trueness whether a ball or a strike by ,LL nnrl not bv the feel of It, and because his experience is all in the other direction ho fails at the plate to judge accurately. , T Take my own case. As far as I can ee I do anvthing anyone else does at the' plate. I " have as good a swing, am as willing to stand closely as anyone, yet my batting average is a joke. I think it is because I am so accustomed tp seeing tho ball travel from me and knowing what it Is going to be, that when I tint it coining at me, and don't know what t Is I am unable to Judge it. As for the catcher, he is always look-in" for tho balls coming toward him. to be sure: but he Is looking almost along their line ot flight, Instead of down upon that line, as the batsman must look, and t-e too knows so much what Is coming toward- him that when you change his nolnt of view and make him hit at a Sa P the nature of which he doesn't understand beforehand, he is more or less lieipJfiSSnf course, you want to know how I reconcile with this, theory the pitchers and catchers who do hit tho Benders and the Klines.

On, the Lexing-ton turfman, Is 'going East to win tho event this year With Golden Ess, and he has reason to believe that his grand filly lias a royal chance of annexing the rich prize, as usual a race this season of a valuation totaling, more Clian a moderate fortune. Golden Egg Is the highest cdass filly that ever went from Uie West to run In the Futurity. Five tunes has the much-prized classic event been won by a filly.

So It will be no surprise if George Ott's great nlly. under Walter Graters careful management, brings back to Kentucky this fall the rich Coney Island trophy, as did Sam Bryant over two decades ago, when he sent his great gelding. Proctor Knott, to the post. Owner Ott has shown in his manipulation of Golden . Egg, the true sportsman, by turning down several big offers lor nls handsome filly. He, of course, would sell her, but the price he asks is out ot reason In theso times. He says he knows It. too, but he believes in the East Golden Egg will prove she is worth every cent of $20,000, and she surely is. If she can win the Coney Island Futurity of Mil). Said he tho other day: "I am able to own a good horse and did I not own her dam and other stock closely related to her. 1 would never figure on selling her at any price, and It may bo that I" nevor will anyway, as she has already paid for winner on her even should she never win another race. Big Goose, her dam. is surely the best bargain I ever made in a broodmare. A man don't pick up her kind only once in a lone while." Clubs. Paris Richmond -Winchester Lexington .

Minneapolis, Minn., July 23. The Western Golf Association team to-day won the Olympic cup, the curtain raiser of the "Western amateur ffolf championship, over the links of th& Mlnlkahda Club.

Tho Eastern intercollegiate quartet was second with G46 and Michigan came third with G6L Minnesota turned In 0GT, Dea Moines 607 and the trans-Mississippi team TOO. The Indiana quartet withdrew at the ond of the morning round when J. I. Dllle disqualified himself by lifting his bail out of place. The winning team of champions played remarkably consistent golf, three men turning in scores of laz and the fourth man getting 159. Albert Seckel,-Eastern intercollegiate champion, landed 77 and 75 for 152; Robert Gardner, national champion, scored 7fi-7ti-152, and Charles Evans, Jr., Western champion, handed In SO-72-152. Paul Hunter, chnmplon of California, was the low man, with $3-76-159. Two other plaversH, B. Heyburn, of the Eastern Intercollegiate four, and Howard B. Le, of Michigan also tied for low Individual honors at 152. Evans and Lee equaled the course record of 72, which was established yesterday by Warren K. . Wood, of Homewood. Lee's performance mor creditable of the two, as he made it in the morning round in the face of frequent heavy showers and strong winds. Evans made an 80 in the morning and ho looked to have a poor chance for a good score when he went out in 39 In the afternoon, but a phe nomenal 33 on the return journey, a new record for the last nine holes, gave him 72 and enabled him to tie for the lead.

" I TROTTING RACES TO BEGIN EARLY AT EMPIRE CITY TRACK A notable innovation which should do much to popularize harness racing Is to be introduced at the Grand Circuit trotting meeting at the Empire City track August 23-27, under the ausplcea of the American Trotting Horse Breeders' Club. Tne races will be started promptly at 2:20 p. m., and the programme will be of such length that the last race of the day wtll he finished shortly after 5 tVelock, the same as at the running meetings. Trotting meetings In the past have been characterized by a particularly lengthy programme. Baikness has frequently fallen before the last race of the day was ended, and this has caused much inconvenience and complaint in New York, where day and night performances in racing are not appreciated. There has been a concrete reason for the lengthy programme. Grand Circuit meetings and others have been largely linanced by the sale of concessions ior poolsillng, bookmnking, the bar and refreshments. In order that the buyers ot these privileges might obtain as much ot the public's money as possible, the racing programme was made long and the races were drawn out and delayed. James. Butr, president of the Trotting Horse Breeders' Club, said in speaking of the proposed innovation: "Everybody who follows the trotters has attended meetings where (he starter and the judges acted as If they had been requested by the management to hold the crowd as long aa daylight lasted, and I have known just this thing to be done on some of the leading tracks of the country. The people who had paid at the gate to see the races were the last ones to be considered. The poolseller, the barkeeper and the men who entered their horses supplied 75 per cent, of the gross receipts, and the races were managed to suit them. We- have decided to change this and send the people home in time for their dinner." As showing the basis on which trotting meetings have sometimes been conducted an o'.d financial statement of the Philadelphia Driving Park Association is interesting. At meetings held in one year at the Point Breeze track, the gate receipts were $3,4S3 and receipts from "privileges" were ?12,-f23. DR. JORDAN DIES- IN KANSAS CITY.
