Though opening day of the Lethuriage Fair races was marred by adverse weather conditions, for it rained considerably during their progress and the track was extremely slow, there was outstanding fact in counecnioa with the card of events-the occasion made it apparent that we have here the swellest bunch of race horses that has yet been seen in the south, and the events of yesterday were meritorious to a degree that will succeed in bringing out all lovers of stellar racing attractions to the exhibition track for the remaining days of the meet, should the weather prove at all favorable. Xot that there is anything startling to record anent the three events which made up the card, but everyone who was at the track yesterday and who knows but little about horses, recognized "class" in the array of racers which performed, ;ind some of the best have yet to make their -debut. Spin in First Heat To say that nothing startling happened, is a trifle erroneous. There nas an incident or an accident which gave the crowd au electrical thrill first shot out of the box. Roan H51I, driven by Sol .Murray:^ falher^_ -yvas taking up the rear in the first round iu the first heat, ii'i the first race, of the program, the 2.10 pace, and when going down the back stretch he slipped and tumbled in a heap with bis sulky .throwing the driver like a bag of meal shooting through the air and landing him twenty feet ahead. The crowd, which by the way was not conspicuous by being great in numbers, stood petrified for a period, until the driver was seen to rise to his feet and dart back to take care of nis horse which was down and scrambling to get up. .Miraculous was the driver's escape. HC; nor the horse are the worse today for their experience. It was Mr. Murray's first time in a race on the Western Canada circuit. Roan Hal is a Calgary horse, owned by S. A. Roe. It was lucky for horse and driver that they were not in the vanguard instead of the rear, a position insisted upon In scoring for the start by the driver, who was criticised by the judges for taking up such a distinct backward position. After scoring for three times and being held up by Roan Ha! being too far behind, the driver told the ju^igea to never mind him, meaning that the rear position was the one be coveted at the start, it was fortunate that he did get away a trailer, for the starter took .Murray at his word and the race "was a go the next time they scored, Even so, Murray had his horse well up a-t the first turn. Favorites Ware the Winners It was a day of favorites under the wire lirst in ov ry event. Nellie G �was third in the first heat of the 2.05 trot and then came back in the nex4 three heats a winner all the way, Walter J. and Star King, the other twj horses left in the race after Roan Hal tumbled and Lakeside Hal was distanced in the first heat, proved of nearly equal merit, Walter .7. having a little bit on. Star King when the count of points was made. Walter J. heal Star King and Nellie G. to it in the first heat. He came through second, third, and second in the following heats. Star King landed two, three, two, three iu the four heats of this race. Very Evenly IVIatched Major By-By looked to be every Bit as good a horse as Harry T., the favorite. In the 2.20 trot, but the .Major couldn't gather up the fow feet that always separated the two throughout and when Harry T. got in front, it was a sure bet that he would stay there, and he did on ail occasions, taking the race in three heats, with his rival. Major By-By, cinching second honors. W. H. S. captured third money and Poxy Togo fourth. There were six starters in this race. They all finished. They Like tlie Runners The running race was a feature attraction for the boys who haunt th� boolts. When the five furlongs dash was announced they swarmed out o. the stand and crowded the hotting ring in spite of the drenching in store for them. Babble was the choice of tlie field of five and made it clear tliat she was "there" at every turn. The race proved an interesting diversion from the harness events and another one or two would have added spice to the program. One of the outstanding features of the running events is the Xaot that they make good sport, rain or shine. The raoing card was a small one, a part of the afternoon on the track being taken up by the judging of ladies' and gentlemen's drivers. First Race-Harness Event Walter J. vas selected to win by the betting talent, and made good in the first heat. The books opened up at even money on the winner and soon went to 2 to 5. Star King 'was even money for first and ran .second, and NelHe Q. was the same price at the books and ran lUlvd. Lakeside Ha\ was dista^iced; svlso Roan Hal -vvho spilled in the back stretch. The first three horses'flnlshed close together and made a good i-ace. Five horses started. Second heat.-rThree horses were left in the race. Nellie G, was strongly lljvpred aiad. closed at 1 to -1. 'Walter J. was second at a little better than If the harness men cannot make it 90 at the races tomorrow afternoon, the runners will he there in all their glory. There will be running races galore. The harness men will be on the track if at all possible. The runners are all in the stables at the grounds yet, and the combined running card for the two days will be staged. Besides there will be a local running race. In which about 25 entries are expected. Those wishing to enter horses should ndtify the fair management at once. A. E. Humphries is in charge of the racing events. If there Is a muddy track, the ' runners will put up just as much fun, anyway, probably more. The running of the English derby, showing how Craganour crowded Aboyeur and was disqualified. AUSTRALIANS GIVEN A CLOSE MATCH CANADIAN TENNIS PLAYERS.

The American player was handicapped by having a weak partner, otherwise his victory would have been an easier one. The German Davis Cup players, Prederich Wilhelm Rahe and Heinrich Kleinscroth also won their match in their first round of the doublesi, de-jiefttlng Gount Salm and T. S. B. Kid-ston, by 3 sets to 1.

The favorite won without trouble, followed by Walter J. and Star King. The heat was a close one. Third heat.-The boys who play the books had to put up $10 to win ?3 in the final and a man with a wad plunked down $30 instanter, and the books wiped the slate and took no more money. Nellie G. ran where she was expected^ to run in this heat. She finished several rods in advance of Walter J., and this latter horse finished the same distance In advance of Star King, but Star King was placed second by the judges, Walter J. having interfered with the former in the back stretch. Fourth heat,-The books bet very little kale in the last heat and closed in less than five minutes after they opened. Nellie G. w^s the only horse liked for first position in the race. She led from start to finish. Walter J. gave her k run for the money until rounding the turn into the home stretch in the last time around, when he broke and lost ground. Walter J. was quick to recover but couldn't get near the leader again, though he had it on Star King with a comfortable margin.

The beat was doubtful until the winner drove into the stretch and cased away to a commanding position and won hands down. Second heat.-Harry T. was the choice for this heat and went to the front and stayed there. Major By-By was two rods behind the winner, finishing where he was generally picked to finish. An exciting Issue was furnished by W, H. S., Foxy Togo and Gratton Boy, who came into the home stretch abreast and fought a good fight for third place. They came Under the wire with little to choose between and were placed in the order named, Oro Monbells finishing sixth and last. Third heat.-Harry T. and Major By-By again cama across as they did in the previous heats and brought the race to a concluaion. G-ratton Boy ended third, Foxy Togo fourth and W. H. S. firth.

Powley; of Moose .Taw, captured the five furlong dash, weight for age, $200 purse, in 1.00%. Babble was favored and she had no difficulty in proving the worth placed In her by the talent who backed her up to a prohibitive price. The books opened up at 1 to 2 and ranged to 2 to 5 when they were at the post. The winner jumped to the front and trailed the field after her tor the whole distance. Merrlfleld owned by P. Bouyne of Minneapolis, was second choice and landed where she was selected to land. Merrifield tried to give Babble a run for it in the stretch but was never iu danger of overtaking the favorite.

WESTERN CANADA LEAGUE GAMES QUAKiaHS BAD ACTORS Jledicine Hat, June 2.").-.Medicine Hat lost to Saskatoon in the afternoon game by a 4 to 1 score.

Two bunts and a single gave the Quakers two in the first; four errors escorted Mills arpund in the second, and a double and an error gave them one in the ninth.
