INDIANAPOLIS, Sept. 7.—The flag of honor floats over the track of the Indianapolis Driving club and the sun of Terre Haute and Fort Wayne has been eclipsed, Sir Robert J, the great son of Hartford, reigns supreme as king of the turf and the pennant waves above his stall at the state fair grounds. The match race for a purse of $5,000 between Robert J and Joe Pntchen was expected to bring forth some phenomenal speed, but not one of the 10,000 people gathered at the track Thursday afternoon was prepared for the terrible slashing of records that began with the word "Go" thundered from the stand by Starter Walker at 8:50 o'clock. The day was ill that could have been desired, and the track was perfect. The heats of the previous races were passed over in haste and the crowd bad become somewhat impatient, when Starter Walker advanced to the front of the stand and, facing the immense audience, announced the race would be the next feature of the program. Swept Down For the Word. At the same moment that Starter Walker made the announcement to the crowd, the masses of humanity at the gates were parted and from the breach appeared upon the track simultaneously the two horses. A mighty cheer went up as Geers and Curry drove quietly down in front of the amphitheater, and jogged to the turn. The crowd became breathless as the horses came together and pulled out for a little warming up down the stretch. Five minutes later they halted a moment before the stand, the last touches were administered to both horses, every strap and buckle was closely inspected and the two swept down the track for the word. Both drivers settled themselves firmly in their seats und neither looked at the other. They were in no humor for jesting. There was a determined and set expression upon the face of each. Curry was determined to give the brown horse the greatest and hottest race of his life, but Geers quietly confident that he could pull out just enough to keep ahead: Second Start a Success. Scarcely had the two horses turned for the start when the brown and black gave jreat leaps forward and shot down to the stand at a terrific pace. Both drivers held back and Pattheu WHS ren-' dered 'unsteady by the lines. Walker taw the situation and called them back. The second start was a success. Both lorses were at their stride and less than a neck apart. Down the track they came at n terrible pace with perfect mo;ion and even stride. "Go!" yelled Walker, 1 aning far over the railing of he stand mid the crowd arose as one man. Around the turn the two rivals ihot and at the quarter MJ£ was announced. Not on in inch of divergence is to the relative positions could be seen. It was as though the two great horses were being impelled by sonio unseen ! brce as the movement of the legs ou the >ack stretch could not be scon. "l:Q2}-j at the half," was called out, and the crowd cheered, I It Was a Grand Finish. I Still the two boms remained together, Curry hanging stubbornly at Geers' vheel. Both drivers gathered their reins for the stretch, and 1:34 at the three- quarters was yelled from the stand. Then began the mad race homo. Some one in the crowd yelled in triumph as he law the world's record in danger, and Jtarter Walker called out for silence null the horses had passed the wire. Up they came like a whirlwind and loft the crowd iu uncertainty as to the victor, Geers spoke to Robert J and Curry made a low exclamation of encouragement to ho black. Both understood and re- ponded. It was a grand finish to the id race, and the crowd yelled itself loaree. A moment later, whou 3:08% was hung up, a great wave of extravagant delight dashed across tho umphi- heater and tho air trembled as tho great roar of triumph went up. Terre Haute, ho rival, hod been surpassed and Fort Wayne was excelled. The latter had held the banner for a briof week, but must now succumb. But the second heat) It was confidently said tho groat heat hod passed aud BOIUO left for home. It was tho geu- rul impression that both horses had lone their best and slow time was looked or. Regret was freely expressed that ho heat had not been a quarter second aster. Forty-five minutes later tho track was again cleared and tha two horse* *aine out. It was now realized that tho track was ftwtor, both horses in tho very •ink of condition, t'alclum viOMd Up the dap. Again tho two honwu factxl vault other or tlio word and again tha word woo ivui.

One long cheer burst forth and continued until Starter Walker announced ths timo and the thno had been posted by quarters. World's records had beca shattered, the fastest heat ever gone iu harness hnd been witnessed aud th» crowd went wild. Sent Robert J Into th« Air. It was close to 5:30 o'clock when th* third heat was called. Joe Patchen was ready for the last bout which was to settle whether or not he was to score* mark after showing such a wonderful speed. Both horsos and drivers wers cheered as they took positions for th» word. Patchen was acting a little badly and two attempts were tuadc to get away before both animals were well on their gait. It was a great start, but Patchen was moving at a gai.t that ^sent Robert J into the air. This was going to the quarters, and the break was a btid one. Greera brought him to his- feet very quickly, however, and it was not a second before he was chasing the big black. Patchen passed the quarter in M% seconds, three open lengths i« front, but Robert J, moving with great precision, slowly crept up on his antagonist and by the time the three-quarters was reached, had recovered two lengths of his lost ground. Patcben was going at a clip that looked as though he would carry the heat, but was seen to waver half way down tha stretch though he did not leave his feet. Robert moved up slowly but surely and took advantage of the swerve made by the black. Geers let him move out as much as he would take and at the distance stand he had overhauled and was on even terms with Joe. Curry helped his favorite all he possibly could, but Robert J was not to be conquered and he finished the third heat in 2:04%, » half length to the good. Patchen was marked at 2:05. The average time of the three heats was 2:08 8-5. Flying Jib will go against the record Saturday. Mr. McDowell, his driver, says he is in the pink of perfection and great time is looked for from him.
