THE PHILADELPHIA TIMES. 10 SUNDAY MORNTN'G, JULY 26, 1896. HONORS EASY . AT IRON AM THREE FAVORITES WON AND THE TAL ENT ABOUT BROKE EVEN. THE OWNERS ARE MUCH TROUBLED Closing of the Foreign Books, Reduction of the Purses and Not Knowing Where They Will Go When This Meeting Closes Keens Those Who Buy the Oats Busy Thinking It Is Rumored That St. Asaph May Reopen A Small Crowd at Brighton Beach-How They Ran at Latonia and St. Louis. Iron Hill. Md., July 25. Horsemen here were much discouraged at the loss of the foreign bonk, because it upset the plans of the lion Hill management to build another new track in tms vicinity. However, the outlook Is brighter since the announcement that a traek will be built at Havre le Grace and racing begin at the con elusion of the present meeting. In the event of any failure to carry out this scheme there is every probability of racing uein resumed at St. Asaph track just as soon as the came winds un in this part of the coun trv. The racing to-day was interesting, the lietrinir croud and the crowd fair. Eleven books were in the line and they quit loser, four favorites winning. In the opening race at four and a half furlongs Rov was a warm favorite, going to the post at 2 to 5. He opened at 1 to 2, went to evens and was plunged on. Of the balance Belief and Imported Plunderer were best fancied, closing at. sevens and eights, with jiny odds the remainder. Outside of Dillon J., who was left at the post, the start was fair, with Somage and Relief in front. The first-named was the pace-maker to the turn for home, where she was passed by Roy, the latter winning easily at the end by two lengths. In a drive Relief finished second n half length before Lottie A., who beat the tired Homage a length and a half for third. Imported Plunderer dropped out of it early in tiie game and wound up a bad last. Then; was good speculation on the second race at six furlongs. Oak, Sebastian. Pickaway and Reform all having strong following. Oak was the choice, backed from twos to 13 to 10, while Sebastian's odds tumbled from fours to 13 to 5. Pickaway and Reform were at fives and sixes. It was a good start, Pickaway shooting out into the lead and showing the way to the baekstreteh, where Sebastian took up the running, and, gradually Increasing his lead, won in a gallop by live lengths from Dr. Jones, a 15 to 1 chance. Reform was third a head before Roebuck and two lengths behind Dr. Jones. Oak was oil' In front, but was badly interfered with at the first turn, and never afterwards was prominent. The third race, at six and a half furlongs, looked to have but three in it from the betting. Mattie Chun opened at 8 to 5 and was backed to evens, while Frank R. Hart went from 6 to 5 to twos and closed at 8 to 5. Jersey came In for some support, being played from sixes to fives. It was any odds the rest. After a short delay a fair start was effected with La Trentis and Mattie Chun the leaders. The latter at once took command and led the entire trip, winning easily at the end by a length and a half. La Prentis ran in second place throughout, aud finished In that position the same distance before Frank R. Harf. The latter was in a pocket at the lower turn, while Foxglove was badly off. A poor bunch of dogs came together In the fourth race, at six furlongs, and for a time the pencillers were bothered as to what prices to offer. Grange Camp and Hazel opened at 8 to 5, but at post time It was evens Grange Camp and 8 to 5 Hazel. Gray Forest was third choice at fives. Gray Forest was in front at flagfall, and with Lady Danby were the leaders to the back-stretch, when Grange Camp moved np and taking command remained there to the end, winning handily by a length from Gray Forest, who was five lengths before Hazel. Houlahan put up a poor ride on Lady Danby. The best field of the day met in the fifth race, at six furlongs. Whippany and hlJk opened at practically even up, but the first named was backed from 6 to 5 to 15 to 20, while Silk's price soared upwards from 7 to 5 to fives. Barytone II. and Little Dorritt were both played to some extent. The start was good for all but Barytone II., who had the worst of it. Austin broke first, but was outrun by Whippany and Little Dorritt. The latter two were the leaders into the stretch with Whippany going on while Little Dorritt fell back. At the finish Whippany was two lengths to the good, with vent second a length before Barytone II. Silk's race was a poor one. The closing race of the day was at four and a half furlongs, and Herndon was selected to do the trick, going to the post at twos, while Gold Dollar was second in favor at threes, with Little Jim third choice at fours. Pie and Jewel were held at sixes, with any price the rest. Jewel broke second to a good start, and going at once to the front stayed there to the end, winning in a drive by a neck from Little Jim, who was a length and a half before Susie R. SUMMARIES.

The bicycle races detracted a little attention from the Brighton course to-day. There was a crowd in attendance, but did not come up to the usual Saturday aggregation. The day wa perfect overhead and there were no complaints about the going. Hornpipe turned a Hip-flap In the lirst race, winning after a drive from the good thing. The Dragon. The Inst time Hornpipe was out lie was beaten by Mirage handily. To-day he would have left Mirage around the eighth pole had he been a contestant. How Mr. l akeland will explain this sudden reversal of form to the stewards will prohably never be published, but It is even betting that he explains it all right. The favorite and second choice players were knocked into a heap in the second race. Flying Squadron was the tip, Casaeopia not bi'ing played nnti! the last few minutes. Casseupia looked all over a winner in the early slages of the race, but he was chased by Flying Squadron and Set Fast at the close. Flying Squadron was first to retire. Set Fast nailed Cnsseopia a furlong from home and won cleverly. Flying Squadron was beaten for third place by Sunny Slope. Zanone carried tne faithful wifely over in the third. He was exceedingly well played. Treniargo also had a good following, especially for the place. It looked at one time as though Treniargo would nip the favorite, but as soon as Gardiner called upon his mount it was a case of "Kitty bur the door.'' Treniargo "was a good sevond, well in front of Juno, the remainder badly beaten. The Text handicap furnished a good race. Eubicou and Sir Francis were the best play- THE TIMES RACING GUIDE i New Yokk, July 25. Brighton Beach Weather clear. Track fast Starter Flynm. 412 FIRST RACK One mile and a sixteenth. starters.

From 1 Correspondent of The Times. Chambersburg, July 25. For the first time since the season opened there was this week a change around in the position of the clubs contesting for the pennant of the Cumberland Valley League. Since the first game on June 10 Hagerstowu has been first, Chambersburg second, Hanover third and Carlisle fourth. The latter seemed to be hopelessly In the rear, but the team has been reorganized and is now winning nearly all the games it plays, consequently the leaders are hustling and rightly fear that Carlisle will soon begin to pull down their percentages. On Tuesday Carlisle defeated Hanover In a good game and took third place, much to the delight of the men down the valley, who had been long tired of holding up the tail-end. The season Is not yet half over and the race Is yet anybody's. Hagerstown aud Chambersburg are still neck-and-neck for first place. The Hagerstown champions are losing games In a way that makes their backers tired and must go to second place unless they brace up during the coming week. Chambersburg Is pursuing the even tenor of her way and will likely hold first place before the end of next week. All along the -Collegians" have had 10 give Hagerstown nearly all the defeats she bad received, but now that the Carlisle "Colts" are pulliug up they assist in pulling down the lead of the chamulous. The money question Is giving all the clubs I considerable uneasiness, ah tne learns uie drawing well, but still not enough money to come out ahead. The managers In other towns say that Chambersburg is the best drawing club they have, for the snappy game that the "Collegians" put up generally makes the people anxious to see them. It is thought by some that there are too many games ou the schedule, and that Is the position here. The attendance has fallen off, not on account of any lack of Interest in the team, but because the games come too frequently. there is some talk 01 suortening tne scneu-uie, and that may be considered at the next meeting of the league. Over in Hagerstown they are not so confident of winning the pennant as they have been 'all along. They lost three straight games this week, two to Carlisle and one to Chambersburg, and a big howl Is going up. There are still dissensions in the team. Some of the men do not like Captain Stauffcr and they are trying to force him out of the club. Several of them deliberately try to "break" Stnuffer at first base by throwing him low balls. This has been partly successful, and Stauffer's error column is growiug simply because the men do not want him to get the balls that are thrown to bim. The better element among the audience understand the situation and sympathize with Stauffer. Cumberland was tried this week, but did only fairly well. "Buck" Bautlt will likely be secured from the Portsmouth, Va team, and his coming will add strength. There are several men ou the team who are lamentably weak at the bat who must either hit a home run or nothing, and it Is generally the latter. There Is talk of securing some up-to-date batters to replace these men. The club has only one catcher. Grafflus, and he Is being overworked. If the team is not strengthened at once it cannot stand the hot pace which will be set In August. Down In Hanover there Is talk of a good many changes. The experiment of transferring some games to York has not yet been well tried, but it is thought that it will be a success. During the next two weks the York people will have a chance to see the strong teams from Hagerstown, Carlisle and Cham-berburg play, aud they then can make up their minds whether they want to see that kind of ball. Some think that the Hanover men should play In York tinder the name of the York team and that they would draw berter If thus advertised. The Hanover management is hot-footed after Massey, Strieker, Sales and Stalz, of the Pottsville team, and have strong hopes of landing them. Carlisle has made a big strike in securing Pitcher Beam and Catcher Weand from the Athletics. They work together magnificently and there is no better battery in the league. Two other new men are Setley, the erratic but effective pitcher, and Goodheart at third. Goodheart and Setley are the loudest coach-ers in the league and put lots of snap in the game. The whole team seems to be Infused with new life and vim. They work together magnificently and in their present condition cauuot fail to add to their percentage regularly. The town Is wild over the showing the team la making and they turn out bigger audiences than any other town in the league. M. F. Thompson has bad to give up the management of the team on account of business engagements, and Manager Brown Is now at the head of affairs. He has had considerable experience and Is somewhat of a hustler. Chambersburg added one more player this week Sheckard, who formerly pitched for Lancaster. He has already made himself popular with the cranks. He won the game at Hagerstown on Wednesday by his terrific drive over the right Held fence, and also pitched a winning game against Hanover on Thursday. There Is somewhat of a squabble as to who Is entitled to Sheckard's services. Hanover claims him, but as Hanover never reported him to the secretary or president of the league as having been signed, Chambersburg has no doubt as to her title to Sheckard. Schoenhut has not been able to iltch this week on account of having split lis finger last week, but Is expected to get Into the game In a lively way next week. Another Big Racing Combination.

ERIE MEDICAL CO., BUFFALO.N.Y, TflE ARRETS VERE FIRMER SHOETS COVERED ON WHAT IS CONSIDERED A BETTER OUTLOOK. LONDON WAS INCLINED TO SELL Demand for Stocks, However, Continued Fair Throughout the Morning and While Best Prices Were ot Maintained to the Close General fiet Gains Were Scored. The Bank Statement Indicated Liquidation in Stocks Local Trading Was Dull and Without Much Feature of Interest. The action of the Populist convention In nominating Ex-Congressman. Watson.of Georgia, as the Vice Presidential candidate on their ticket Instead of Mr. Sewall, and Mr. Bryan's announcement that he would refuse a Populist indorsement unless Mr. Sewall was indorsed also, was favorably regarded in speculative circles. It was looked upon as materially weakening the Chicago ticket and gave rise to the hope that tae Populists would also name a new man as their Presidential standard-bearer. These facts, together with the gradually growing belief thn the nomination of a sound money Democratic ticket will greatly help McKinley, rather alarmed the shorts in the New York stock market, and, notwithstanding that London quotations came In lower, and that there was a manifest inclination to sell on the part of the foreigners, they began buying right from the start. Naturally the opening was strong, active and higher, and In the early trading some fair-sized gains were made. But they were not held to the close, for the higher range of prices brought out liberal realizing sales, and the markets reacted. The weekly statement of the associated banks of New York city probably had some- thing to do with the movement, for the showing it made was considerably more un favorable than had been expected. There was, to begin with, a decrease in loans of 110 less than $5,301,000, which Indicated that there had been free liquidation in securities during the week. Another rather startlln item was the decrease of f 12.632,900 In de posits. A part of this loss can be explained by the withdrawals of foreign capital, not only by Europe, but by Canada also. To what extent deposits were withdrawn by persons for the purpose of buying gold to noaro cannot be estimated, but t was evi dently large. The statement showed a loss In specie of $6,102,100, which was due. of course, to the patriotic action of the banks in exchanging their gold for legal tenders. The latter decreased only $329,000, while circulation increased $77,300. The net losses sustalued by the banks is seen in the re serve, which decreased $3,273,475. They now hold In excess of the legal requirement $18,-499,550. The surplus a year ago was $41,-996,575, and two years ago $71,903,025. The local market was dull and without feature of interest. Few stocks were pressed on the market, and while the bears were inactive, there was, at the same time, verv little demand from commission houses. Prices consequently were without Important change, but on the whole held well. The tractions, excepting Union.were generally higher. So were some of the industrials, notably United Gas and Pennsylvania Heat preferred. Welsbach Light was a shade lower, as was Electric Storage Battery common. Outside of Rending and St. Paul, which were fairly active and firm on arbitrage trading, the railroad list was stagnant. The market closed dull and steady.

The action of the Western roads in making a reduction of three cents on grain shipments In favor of the lake route has brought new developments to the surface. In all probability the shippers who favor lake consignments will urge a drop so as to conform with the all-rail route from Illinois points to Baltimore or Philadelphia. The lake and rail route from Illinois at so-called 110 per cent, points are steeper to New York than the all-rail route from the same points to either Baltimore or Philadelphia. In this way, Philadelphia is favored by a 1-ceut reduction on all rail shipments. The reduction was a direct stab at the all-rail traffic. It Is said that the Chicago and Northwestern Railroad's annual pamphlet report, due within two weeks, will show the largest surplus after dividends In ten years since 1887, no increase in the company's bonded debt, a writing off of surplus accounts, making more than $35,000,000 so written off. and will give the details of very large expenses for new equipment and a new piece of road in the hard woods timber country. Northwest earned over the 7 per cent, paid on the preferred stock. 9 per cent, on the common stock, not counting a surplus of several hundred thousand dollars by the Fremont-Elkhorn and other Western lines.nor the net proceeds of land sales. A meeting of the stockholders of the Third Avenue Railroad, of New York city, has been called to vote on a proponed Increase of $3,000,000 In the capital stock of the company. The proceeds of the new stock, It Is explained, will be used for extensions and Improvements. Each stockholder will be entitled to subscribe at par in proportion to bis present holdings. The capitalization of the Third Avenue Road has been raised several times within recent years. In 1S91 the capital stock was raised from $2,000,000 to $3,000,000 to pay for changing the motive power from horses to cable. In 1892 there was a still further Increase to $5,000,000; In 1893 to $7,000,000, and in January, 1895, to $9,000,000. Said an anthracite coal man yesterday: "The decision to produce 4,000.000 tons in August as against 3.500.000 tons in July, will, on a" basis of 45,500.000 tons for the year, leave about 19,000,000 tons to be produced In the last four mouths, or at the rate of 4,800,000 tons per month. There is no question in the mind of anyone who is familiar with the course of events In the trade since the 1st of February, regarding the ability of the mnnngers to carry this plan to completion. During all of August, the average net price of stove coal will be $4.15. The average for that size for the 12 mouths of 1895 was about $3.04. This Is clearly $1.10 improvement, for the last four months of this yenr as compared with the twelve of last. This does not take into consideration the practical certainty of another advance of 25 cents September 1, nor does It set forth the advantage which will accrue to the companies during 1897, because of the restriction and advances during 1896." It is probable that the Pennsylvania Company will very soon assume absolute and complete control of the Grand Rapids and Indiana. This report was put In circulation some months ago, but nothing was done by the Pennsylvania Company at that time to confirm or deny it. It has long been claimed that It is the object of the company to ultimately consolidate all the lines under its control into one gigantic railroad system, which would be one of the largest In the world. The Pennsylvania now controls much of the stock and securities of the Grand Rapids and Indiana. It is said that for years the former has been advancing money to improve the property aud Increase its equipment until the liabilities incurred make the Pennsylvania the practical owner of the line, which includes the tracks from Fort Wayne. Ind., to Mackinaw City. 367 miles; Manistee Branch, 19 miles; other branches, 50 miles; total. 436 miles. It leases and operates Cincinnati, Richmond and Fort Wavne. 86 miles: Traverse Citv, 26 miles, Muskegon. Grand Rapids aud Indiana. 37 miles 149 miles; total, 585 miles. A certificate of Incorporation has been Issued to the Charles G. Howe Exporters' and Consumers' Flour Company.

Mr. Howe has been actively engaged in the flour and grain business In New York city since 1865, having a vast acquaintance with exporters and consumers. His customers, exclusive of his export trade, consume over 1,000,000 barrels or flour annually, aggregating over one-ninth of this market's output for the year ending December 31, 1(S95. and with his present facilities he expects to sell at least double this amount the ensuing year. The company Intend erecting In the near future, in the heart of the wheat growing section of the West, spring and winter wheat mills of a daily capacity of 20,000 and 10,000 barrels respectively; pollectlvely, the largest plants in the world, with facilities to increase the same, as demand requires. The elevators, buildings, power, machinery, etc., will be of the very latest improvements that skill and experience command.
