Jockey prominent during tn pant Mason

getting down to riding weight next year. If
at all. Anion? these are Willie Darin, who
under contract to Sydney Paget during
the eastern season and did considerable

who rode for Newton Bennington and Feed

hII his memorable victories, and finished
econd on the list of winning jockeys for
the season; Arthur Redfern. who hears the
reputation Of being the best horseman
among recent American Jockeys; Bhnw.
I.yne. J. Martin and others. According to
reports. Willie Knapp. the little western
Jockey, who was one of the remarkable
sensations of the year, has also been taking
n weight rapidly during the latter part of
ih season and may have difficulty keeping
down to the required weight.
It can lo be stated upon the best of nu
ihority that when the time rolls around for
the stewards of the Jockey club to deal out
the riding licenses for 190; there Is a strong
likelihood that at least three or four prom
inent riders will not iind tiielr names on the
list. That the stewards were dissatisfied

On ring the season Just closed there can be
no doubt, but the proving of dishonest acts
upon the tart of Jockeys Is a serious propo
sition. When It comes to granting license
It t within the power of the stewards to
simply omit certain names In the list with

to th luck of good mounts. Maher had 411

Maher and Madden have met with con
siderable difficulty In reaching their limih
! win this season, but, strangely, each ac-
Jcompllehed the desirable attainment on Fri-
t nay last, ftiaaaen Deiug first to do so.
r Maher brought his score to 101 by a fur
fther victory later In the day, hut he was
jiot sevn out on Sunday at Hurst park and
JAtadilen, by winning the last race, now ties
with the American for seoond position. Tt
la extremely unlikely that either of the
1 pair named will now overhaul Wheatlev,
eVven If Be only adda two or three further
r victories between now and the enil of the
season, for Maher usunllv returns to Amer-
- lea before the close, and Madden, brilliant
jiorseman though lie be, will have to ride
with phenomenal success to catch the

ha been tha American Derby, which I on
of the extremely few great American turf
classic known to Englih turfmen. The
effort mad by the club In 18U to encour
age International racing are largely re
sponsible for the fame of tha event abroad.
In that: year the Duke or Beaufort sent a
'tarter to tb post In Strath rose, ehlppln
Mm all the way from England to run In
this rare. Btrathrose waa beaten.
In recent year uch prominent American
turfmen a August Belmont, the late Wil
liam, C. Whitney, James R. Keene, Clar
ence II. Mackav, H. P. Whitney. II. D.
puryea, Lou I V. Bell, etc.. have made
entries to tht atak.
Since ' tha Inauguration In 1884. strictly
speaking, only on eastern horse ha won
the event. Highball. Mr. Bheftel high

brvd and foaJed In Kentucky. From a
financial a well a sporting point of view
lh ( retirement of the Washington Park
club will be a serious blow to those inter

t260.0tfl each year at Its twenty-five day
meeting. Its first president waa General Phillip
Sberidaa. wh was succeeded by Oeorge
Henry Wheeler, a popular and successful
cilia of Chicago. Since Mr. Wheeler
death the affairs of the club have ber

secretary and treasurer; Lawrence A

The less wealthy class of horse owners
are about to he catered to In a way such
as they have long desired. A smaller cir
cuit of running meetings Is gradually be
ing established under Jockey club auspices,
which will . afford these lovers of the
thoroughbred an opportunity to race their
horses without continually having to come
In contact with the higher class animals
owned by the more wealthy patrons of the
Fore some time past it has been a hard
matter for owners possessed of moderate
racers to find a spot where these might
be raced with any prospect of paying their
feed bills. More especially has this been
the case since the Influx of western horse
owners, owing to the unsettled state of
the western turf, and the consequent
paucity of western meetings. The fields of
horses on the New Tork circuit have been
crowded to overflowing, making the matter
of winning races a task even more difficult
than In former years. The class of these
horses has moreover Improved In a like
ratio. Even to win a cheap selling race
nowadays It Is necessary to own a fairly
valuable horse. And since the owner of
moderate means can III afford to risk the
chance of the horse being taken away from
him by a run up. unless he Is a gambler,
he finds his liurse a drag on the market.
The majority of the rlaces enumerated
propose running two meetings In each year
of fifteen days each, giving a total approxi
mately of mo racing days.

MILWAt'KEE, Wis., Pee. 16-The presi
dents of eight colleges In northern Illinois

rules which will be enforced for the re
formation of foot hall regardless of any
changes that msy be made In the rule
of the game by the rule committee. The
conference Included the following schools

CRETE. Neb.. Dec. 16. (Special. ) The
two basket bill teams from Fairmont I'igh
school suffered disastrous defeats at t-o
hands of the local high whool team. The
nrst half of the girls' game was s one-sided
affair, but during the second half the Fair
mont glrla took a temporary brace. Miss
Rena Hill did ome excellent work In son I
throwing, scoring all but 2 point for the
visitors. The final score was 76 to 25. Tha
boys' game was slow. The Fairmont boys
are accustomed to outside work and were
clumsy on the floor. The Crete boys were
too well drilled In the game and showed It
In every play. The final score was 0 to 12
In Crete's favor. The Crete teams have not
been beaten this year and have played ten
games with an average of more than I to 1
fn their favor.

News from Paris to the effect that the

Mr. Webb Jav. the noted driver and
mien manager, has fully recovered from
the injuries received the past summer In
a eastern race and Is now In charge of the
Chicago branch of the White company.
Mr. Jay haa many friends among the au-
tomobtllsts here In Omaha a he has been
out this way a number of tunes encn
season. Some of the steamer owners In
this city Mr. BraniMs. Mr. Nash Mr. C.
H. Brown have had Mr. Jay out In their
cars and his remarks ble knowhiege of
the machine and skill In handling same
alwny attracted attention.
An automobile as a purchase Is some.
thing that a man considers for a longer
time beforenann man ne ooes inn Buying
of a hat. Most specimens of the genus
homo need to be annually reminded to be
gin thinking early about their Christmas
purchases. Advertising reminders by deal
ers will greatly help along their mid-winter
sales. A New York agent for Oldstnobiles
who advertised car for Christmas gifts
last year, sold twenty runabout and ten
touring cars before the arrival of the holi
day that celebrate "Good will o all."
Because of the reduced rate at which
members of the American Automobile asso
ciation will be able to trael to the New
York shows, the individual membership
Is experiencing a boom. No one will be able
to get the advantage of the rat by Joining
the American Automobile association at
show time. They must be member before
hand and the railroads have become very
strict on this point. Not everyone appre
ciates this, but enough do to keep Secre
tary A. O. Batcheider very busy and the
office at 31 West Forty-second street. New
Yoik, are being flooded with Inquiries.
Fur full fledged touring cars, the four
cylinder engine will he more the thing in
lii06, more than ever. Where the four-cycle
type of motor Is used n engine of less
than four cylinders will hardly be used for
any 'grown up" model. It has conic to a
pass where It msy lie said that the one
rvllnder car la a runabout and the two-cylinder
car a "touring runabout." or "light
tonneau" car, while only the maehlne with
a four-cylinder engine is a full fledged tour
ing car. The plan of the hlggest concern
In the country Indicate a recognition of
It I mere than likely that the auto
mobile show of 1906 In Mndlson Square gar
den will result in the adoption of a new
policy and new methods of decoration In
that historic building for shows of all
sort In the future. For the annual show
of next January a decorative scheme of
unexampled gorgeousness has been worked
out and the great amphitheater will be un
recognisable by It best friends The In
terior will present a perfect Illusion, by
mean of paintings, with fine perspective,
concealing the ends and sides. The effect
will be that of an Italian garden, the chief
color scheme of the pillars and other stuff
work being white and gold.
Now that the time Is drawing nigh when
the public will begin to buy cars for 19
It might be well to call attention to the
relative merits of American and imported
machlnea. In thla connection one nf the
most Important Items to he taken Into con
sideration la the matter of obtaining part
readily. The European method of manufac
ture was. and Is still to a great extent,
so conducted that nearly all of the car
are built one at a time and not In large
numbers, aa Is the rase in the leading
American factories. The European makers
will tell you that everything Is carefully
machined and put together by hand, but
they neglect to tell you that In most cases
It would be Impossible for you to obtain
exact duplicates of part, drilled and
machined ready for use. On the other
hand, nearly all of the American manufac.
turera make their cars, not one at a tine,
but In hundred, and even thousand lots.
nd every piece entering Into their con
struction la so accurately machined that
any one nut of a large bin will be found to
flt Into Its particular place, regardless of
whether it hss been assembled before or
not. All of this Is made possible by the
use of special tools, called "Jlga." upon
which the parts are inirhlned. These tools
ire equipped wtUi guides which determine
the location of all fides and reduce the
ahnr of measuring and laying nut the
work to a mere mechanical proposition
requiring practically no head work. In
large factories, such a the Old Motor
srorks. prorket wheels, connecting rods,
ind various other small parta are put
i rough ten or twenty at time, and one
an see row after row of bin filled with
arts ready for the assembling room.
When they are reedy to build a car all
hat la necessary to do Is to collect from
hese various bins the component parts
nd put them together. A striking thing
thout the whole process I the fact that
iheelutrly ne attention 1 paid to the par
Iculsr piece which I selected, a they are
