Opp. Ellison Mills Gain of 62 Seconds in Rate Speed for Mile Mark 100-Year Progress of Captures Seven First in First Week of Racing at Nortli Randall Ohio The trotting horse is an American The returns for the first grand circuit mooting at North Randall, Ohio, show that Thomas W. Murphy has tho best average etable of his career. During the week ho started 14 horses and won with Miss Harris M. in 2.02Vi, the fastest heat of tho year; Chilcoot.

Three of the horses that Walter Cox trained over the snow banks at Dover, N.H., last winter, caino tiirough as winners, while Lu Prince-E9n also served notice on all prospect- I ive free-for-allers that he is ready for the fray by winning in 2.03Vi and repeating Jn 2.05U. A Game of Chance also won a brilliant race In 2.0314. while Peter Vonia gathered In one of the 3-year-old events. Bon White, who wintered at Thomaaville, Ga., paraded a wonderful pair of 2-year-olds in Periscope, with which he won in 2.10%, and Brusiloff, which finished second to her, with Geers In the sulky. As he has a small stable Geers was not very much in tho limelight at North Randall, but on the last day he won a product Kngland developed the .dever race with "Knap" McCarthy's thoroughbred, France tho Percherou, and Russia tho Orloft, all of which old standby, June Red, In 2.07U.

Mc.Mahon also made his ' the battle front to the plov, or from the race track to a heavy vehicle. At the beginning of the second century of light harnesfl racing, it is well to stop and take a glance backward over the field that has been traversed by those who laid the foundation of the breed in a new country and assisted in reducing the record from three minutes, made by Bo.ston Blue under the saddle on the Jamaica turnpike on Long Island in ISIS, to Uhlan's 1.58 to harness at Lexington, Ky., in 1912. A gain of 62 seconds in the rate of speed for a mile marks the progress made in iOO years and it is very doubtful it these figures will be reduced eight seconds in the next century. Traces Back to Messenger. The trotter as a breed traces to the English horse Jlessengor. He landed in Philadelphia in 1788 and died at Long Island in ISOS, after male-i ing 20 stud seasons in Pennsylvania, j New York and New Jersey. He was, ! during that period, mated with a few j thorouslibred mares, but the majority I oC those bred to him were descended i from the Dutch horses which were I brouglit from Holland by tho founders ; ot .Now Amsterdam and whicli in the century tliat elapsed prior to Ills arrival spread over the states where iie /was located as well us .\'uw lingland. Justin .Morgan, the founder family which bears hi.s of the presence felt by winning with Hal Boy | Belle Alcantara and Miss Perfection. The splendid race won by Binland in 2.05% was one of the outstanding features ot the North Randall meeting, and as he was bred in Ohio the victory was very popular. Tho mistake Wilkes Brewer made in the third heat of tlie Oliin stake also 'gave Blanch Carter an opportunity to make good anil win in time that he could almost malie on a two-lap track. The remarkable showing o� tho get of Peter the Great was a feature at this grand circuit meeting, as it has been at so many in Ohio this year. Of the v.'inner.s Hollyrood Bob, Miss Harris M., Potor Vonia and Dark Flower are by him, while of the placed horses Peter Look, Brusiloff, Chestnut Peter, Brother Peter, Czar Peter and Pele Lafayette appear in his list of performers. The Kentucky futurity winner, Siliko, also had only two starters al tlio meeting. They were Periscoix'. l'.10->.1, and Dagastan, 2.17''?.i, and both ot them were winners.

John Toner, president ot tho National league, in a telephone conversation from New York with Horr-man, said that lie would not attend tlic meeting as ho had decided not to attend any more'nessions of the National Commission. This, it is understood, Is ifi line witli his declaration several woeltfl ago that lie would not sit witli Johnson in any baseball mat-tors, followini; the dispute over the Pitcher Perry case. Chairman Hurrmaii said that at the Cleveland mroting tho (luostion of wlion to close tlie major leagues' season and also the tiuestion of liold-ing a world's sories will bo definlle-ly decided.' and will not act with that body In the future."
