Colonel Korth, the Bonann Kin?, is a Bi? Winner ca
the Oaks Eace.
The English sporting season is being ex
tensively enjoyed. The -week jnst closed
has been a tremendous one for racing. The
owner of the Derby winner is a decidedly
picturesque figure. Colonel North, the
American bonanza king, backed the dark
.lorse, which won the Oaks states.
IBT CABLE TO THE DISPATCH. J
XrfOXDOX, June 8. Copyright. This
lias been a tremendous racing week, with
the Derby on "Wednesday and the Oaks yes
terday, and any number of turfmen's din
ners and such functions sandwiched in be
tween on Thursday to give an opportunity
to discuss the events. AH tastes are suited.
The Derby is won by Donavan, a tre
mendous favorite, and the Oaks by Abbess
de Jourarre. such a rank outsider that she
was scarcely mentioned in the betting lists,
and 200 to 1 might have been had against
This remarkable win is another instance
of the marvelous luck of Colonel North, the
Bonanza Nitrate King, for, though he en
tered in Lord Randolph Churchill's name,
Abbess is understood to practically belong
to North, whose financial backing keeps the
stable going. Churchill, before this asso
ciation with North, had never won a turf
event, but for once, Churchill, though
mixed up in all racing, is not the chief
a riCTCBESQUE rsDrviDtrAii.
That individual is the Duke of Portland,
and even those who ordinarily take but slrght
interest in dukes cannot fail to be inter
ested in this young man. His luck has
been simply wonderful. At the age of 19 he
was an unimportant lieutenant in the Cold
stream Guards, with any number of uncles,
cousins and all kinds of things standing be
tween himself and the Dukedom of Port
land, he being the son of a second son of a
third son of the duke.
At 20 his father died, leaving him heir
to the Dnkedom and one of the biggest for
tunes in England. The old Duke, who was
then livinj, promptly presented him with
70,000 "to go on with," as he put it, in a
manner becoming a gentleman while wait
ing for him, the old Duke, to die. He never
lad to bother about being grateful, for the
old Duke did not want to see him, and never
did see him until the day of his death.
On that day he inherited miles and miles
of the most valuable land in England, a
great deal of it in the heart of London, the
nest estate perhaps in the kingdom, and a
great many million pounds in hard cash to
make everything run smoothly. He doe
not gamble, but went in for horse racing in
a mild way, with only 16 horses in his sta
ble. He has won the Derby two years iu
KO TAKKEE FOE HIM.
In four days he is to be married to a very
.handsome young woman, about 6 feet tall,
with whom he is desperately in love, and
though he has ruined the hopes of many
British mothers, who looked anxiously and
hopefully upon him as the best catch in
England, he is cheered by the blessing and
prayers "of the British matron, as a whole,
for his patriotism in marrying the daughter
of an English 'squire, and not a Yankee.
An Interesting leature of this year's Derby
has been the unusually heavy betting
done by women. The names of many are
quoted whose earnings on the Duke of Port
land s horse have been sufficient to carry
them through the gown and bonnet crisis
for several seasons, and that means a, great
deal of money. A Lieutenant who is less
lucky than the Duke of Portland is the un
fortunate "Walter Arthur Powell, de
scribed as a gentleman, but who is
now completely knocked to bits against
a financial wall. Instead of having a rela
tive die and make him a Duke, this unfor
tunate began early iu life by inheritiug a
lot of money. He went to the Field gam
bling club with his check book, about which
you nave heard so much of late, invested in
plenty of ivory counters and is now in the
His last transaction at the club resulted
in a loss of 13,000, and altogether this poor
broken-down youne man of Bury street, St.
James has spent over ?500,000, with one or
two games of cards and a few races con
cerning which he had formed judgments to
show lor it. A bright spot in his career, on
which he dwelt cheerfully in his bankruptcy
examination, was the fact that he had once
won 13,000 when within an ace of being
ruined, and had managed to go on with and
enjoy life for quite six nionms.
