MAHER WEALTHIEST JOCKEY.
American Boy Riding Abroad U Big *
Qeit Winning Hors * Pilot
Although the flat racing season is
still young In England , Danny Manor ,
llie wizard , already has a long lead
OTcr the other Jockeys riding abroad.
Danny does not ride as often as some
of the other popular boys , such as his
greatest rival Frank Wootton , largely
because It Is not worth an owner's
while to pay his fee for the minor
races. Wootten led him in the number
of wins last year , but the American
has won more races than any other
Jockey up to date this season , and his
percentage is some five points bettor
than that of his nearest rival.
Mahcr is undoubtedly the most suc
cessful jockey in England today. lie
Is probably making more money than
any other Jockey ever made in Eng
As to Ju t how much Maher makes
In n season It is Impossible to form an
estimate that would be worth any
thing. Aside from his retaining fees
; ind his riding fees , ho Is In receipt of
more presents from owners than any
other Jockey riding , lie has ridden
three Derby winners , and It is cus
tomary for the owners of horses that
win the blue ribbon of the English
turf to treat their Jockeys handsomely.
As much ns $2. ,000 has been given
the lucky Jockey by a delighted owner ,
and $20.000 has several times changed
hands. Resides his Derby wins , Maher
has ridden to victory In almost every
big fixture of the English course , some
of which have brought in much more
than the Derby stake to his employers.
Bush Out For Record.
Owen Bush of Detroit will probably
make a new record this year for runs
scored. He Is n good waiter and gets
on often and is then followed by Ty
Cobb and Sara Crawford , BO the rea
son he scores so often can be seen
without the aid of a telescope.
In applying for that advertised po
sition , be "business like. " That meant
directness , brevity , candor.

SPAIN AFTER MONARCHISTS.
Spanish Government Will Seek to
Break up Loyalist Bands ,
Lisbon , July 29. Spain Is taking
measures to break up the monarchist
preparations In Gallcla , Spain , which
are being made against the republic
of Portugal and , as the Portuguese
government now believes , will en
deavor In good faith to disperse the
monarchist recruits , confiscate their
supplies of arms and prevent the or
ganization of a raid Into Portugal.
Foreign Minister Machado stated to
day that these assurances had been
received from the Spanish govern
ment and added :
"Mnarm lias for some time consid
ered the Portuguese monarchists In
Spain near the border as inoffensive
persons , merely finding an asylum
from the troubles in their own coun
try. Now Spain is convinced that
these refugees are planning hostilities
against the republic , thus misusing
the privilege of the asylum.
"Wherever the Portuguese are found
near the frontier they are ordered by
the government to remove to the In
terior of Spain. The civil guard on
the Gallcian boundary has been In
creased by about 1,000 men and Is co
operating with the Portuguese troops
against persons who cannot satisfac
torily explain their reasons for cross
ing the line. "
