MATCH RACE TAKEN

Five thouM.ru) spectator who attended
the racing at the Douglaa county fair
Jnesterdar mw some excellent content,
but It wm the horses In the clui rare
whloh provide the thrills Instead of
BUI McKlnnay and Columbia Fire .
The match race between these two
horse waa a disappointment with the ex
ception of the time In two heats, which
undeniably waa extremely fast .consid
ering that the track waa not very fast,
the weather waa cold and a strong wind
wept up the stretches carrying clouds
Of dust with It. Hal McKlnney paced
a, mile In 2:09Z and Columbia Fire stepped
In 1:10. Unfavorable conditions undoubt
edly made a difference of three seconds
to the mile to horses traveling at that
rate of speed.
Columbia Fire won, but nobody believed
that It waa a Just verdict so far aa a
test of merit between the horses was
concerned. It did prove that Columbia
Fire Is Hal McKlnney' superior In a
long drawn out contest In unfavorable
weather and track conditions.
But everybody knew that fact before
the race started. What the spectators
wanted to see was whether Hal McKln
ney could beat Columbia Fire for three
heats, but aa events developed such a
test did' not result. What was to have
been the first heat waa declared no heat
by the Judges on the ground that each
driver fouled the other driver during the
mile. That mile waa paced In t:l2 and
aa It took four heats after that before
Columbia Fire was declared the victor
It waa In effect a five-heat race.

I The Standard Oil magnate rose early.
! doused his face in the common wash
basin at the miners' boarding house, sat
I down with. an assembly of coal diggers
'and attacked a typical mining camp
breakfast. It was expected several camps
would be visited during the day.
Rockefeller spent several hours Inspect
ing the Primero -camp. He talked with
John Pannlch and Harry Schoupe, griev
ance representatives of the miners, con
ferred with Dr. A. S. Oregg, camp physi
cian, regarding, sanitary conditions, vis
ited the public school 'and spoke briefly
to the children.
The party then started for Sopris.
Rockefeller made his first financial con
tribution In connection with his inspection
trip today. The amount waa not dis
closed, but It was to build a bandstand
for the Primero miners' band, which ser
enaded him last night to his expressed
delight. The band la composed of coal
diggers of different nationalities, con
ducted by Dr. A. C. Oregg, camp physi
cian. After the serenade Rockefeller ques
tioned Dr. Gregg as to how the band's
equipment had been paid for.
"The instruments and music . were
bought with contributions made by the
miners. The only thing the boys haven't
been able to pay for Is a bandstand. If
we could build a stand we could have
concerts Sundays and during the summer
Mr. Rockefeller apparently pondered
the problem during the night, for today
he called on Dr. Oregg and said:
"I have been thinking about that mat

silK "I comiln i say who w 11 succeed
O'Nrlll," aald Rourke, "Init I do know
that ho will be an experienced base ball
man, well known throughout the country
and he Will be fit for the Job."
From St. Joseph and Dee Moines some
ydps at the dismissal of O Nelll are be
ing made. The yelps are probably largely
dun to the fact that Islell and Holland
were side tracked from the board of di
rectors. It la asserted that It will be a difficult
matter to find a man of O'Neill's ability
and that O Nelll la pop-ilar with the
lowers that be In base ball that the
Western Irs cue will Incur the official
disfavor of the big boys if O'Neill is
shunted from the Western ranks.
To this latter assertion there Is some
dispute. O'Neill may bo In strong with
he powers that be, but there are those
n the Western league who have a con
rsry opinion. Some years ago he West
rn league 'wanted to draft Topcka and
Wichita from the Western association to
nake this an clght-club loop, and every
thing looked velvety for success.
But a wrench wa thrown Into the
naehlncry and the Western league didn't
et Topcka and Wichita. Whereupon Ban
Johnson and Oarry Herrmann were
elected to the noble order of the Double
Cross and opponents of O'Neill declare
that slnco then Tip has been about as
popular with Johnson and Herrmann as
a frollloklng coyote In a chicken coop.
But be It aa It may considerable West

Is settled and a new pres'dent elected
