Indisputably it will bo the big event of the pre-autumn season. It will attract the latest cars In ihir. otiiitrj. and many foreign mnch-ineBi it will carry the highest prize money that has ever been offered for an automobile race meet, and It will be the longest oontegt of its kind ever attempted on a .speedway. It is this latter phase that has caused lively dls-cusiion among racing folks for the past few days. The general opinion appears to be the piximoters have made the distance too long; that it is too great a strain on man and machine. It ir, doubted if either will be able to stand up under the terrific racking of 500 miles at faster than a mile a minute.

CAfiRY OFF CONSIDERABLE KALE AT THE SPOKANE TOURNAMENT Spokane, .March 21.-The Western bowling turnament Is now a thing of the past, and Los Angeles were the lucky winners of the first money. The event was one of the most successful to be held anywhere, and all the com-lietliors were in the best of condition, and all of them worked very hard. Calgary and Edmonton combined together as an Alberta team, and came out winners of the $200 prize in the five men sweepstakes. The total of this team was � 2,885, which won for them the money. The Alberta team, known as No. 2, was nosed out of third place by the very small margin of 12 pins. Tho winner of the secimd money was the Western Laundry, of Spokane, while the lA^a Angeles team came third, Tho .Mberta .No. 2 teani rolled 2,765, and this tally beat llic high score of the events by 47 points.

This is the hardest race undoubtedly in the whole world, and the horse and rider that come in ahead have achieved something, as the song says, "to earn a night's repose." There are, of course, other steeplechases run over a distance, but none of them compare with tlie Grand National, which being as it is run over a course .just short of four and a half miles and thirty jumps of great severity. Is the race of races The Derby and other flat race events are all very well in their way, but do not compare as a racing spectacle with the National. Tlie jumps arc more severe at Liverpool ilian anywhere else, and, as instancing this, a descriiition of one or two may be given What is known as "Velentine's Brook,'' is a thorn fence, five feel high, with a rail in front two feet liigii, and a brook on the far side. "Becher's Brook" is a thick thorn fence, four feet len inches high, with a rail two feet in front and a brook; on the far side eight feel wide and four feet deep. And tlie other jumps are correspondingly severe. Then ag-' ain. there can be no dallying; it has got to he racing pace from start to finish. .\o cold-blooded slow jumper could go with the li(!ld, and take the jumps without mishap it has got to be blood, and notliing else; and, while many of the horsf'.<-, that have won have no doubt had a slight strain of cold blood, the majority were practically thoroughbred. There is , of course, a special steeplechase course, over two miles round its irregular shape, but witli the aid of a good pair of field glasses tho race can be followed closely. � * # A horse in the hunting field in England the other day jumped 30 feet 10 Inches, the jump being over a 4-foot hedge wilh a ditch beyond, and, as showing how blood will tell, this horse was by Red Prince 11., which was champion at the Dublin Show for several years as a stallion to get hunters, while the dam was Ascetic, a wonderful stallion, which stood in Ireland for many years, and got more' good hunters and steeplechasers than any other horse that ever lived. By the bye, talking of Cloister, one of the offspring of .Ascetic, in one of ray previous articles, I said he carried 185 lbs. to victory in the National. This should have been 175, the 185 lbs. having been carried in the tlrand Sefton Steeplechase, run over the same course. * lit A harness trainer was talking to me one day, and he made the remark that/ a harness horse had more itaylng pow-isi than u runuer. This iiuiy be, but it might be said that until the ordinary sprinter is put to hurdle racing or steeplechasirig, one never knows what Is In it. There are very few racehorses in Britain which cannot he trained to hurdle racing over a two mile course, and many and many a racehorse has been wasted trying for five-eighth dashes when staying was bia game all the time. f remember one horse-Posterity-which dlsappoiutod time and again orer short distances till he was ptit with a trainer to train for hurdle races, and he turned out one of the top-notohers, and there are many other instances. Again the flat-racer is seldom seen under colors after eight years of age, while the chas er is just maturing at that age, and there are three or four horses entered in the fortihcomlng National of thirteen years of age. One of the greatest horses that ever ran for the National was Manifesto, who ran when be was- sixteen. He won twice, and was second, and third to or three times, and only once fell, when he was brought down by another ho'-se. The last time he ran he lasted the * � � . One particular charm about the National, Is that one never knows when they might have a National horse, ""ad ohoap, too; but it is altogether different in the Derby, and other great flat stake races, where wealth and certain strains of what is known as fashionable horse blood, come out on top near ly all the time, and Ihe small man has j but little chance. Zoedone, whicli won the National many years ago. ran in a cab in Dublin, while a recent win ner, R,ubio Ibred in California), was running in harness, and was bougnt cheap. Of course, as the race Is a handicap, it does not follow that the be.'c horse must win and here, as In other handicaps, the spectacle Is witnessed of a great chaser close up at the finish, but having to s'lccunib to a light weight. Steepiechasing first came strongl.v into vogue in the forties, and the Ni-tlonal was first run in 1839. T.ha largest field that ever went to the post, was 32, and the average field is ov
