PMYING THE RACES.
The Enormous Fortunes Won and
Lost on tbe American Tnrf.
THE STORI OF DAVE JOHNSON.
Penniless Last Tear, Now Worth a Quarter
of a Million.
HOW BIG PLUXGERS FLNALLT LOSE ALL
rWRTTTEJf FOB THE DIsrATCIt.1
The. conditions surrounding the turf in
this country and in Enelaml are bo entirely
different that it would perhaps be far easier
to institute a contrast than a comparison.
There is no manner of doubt lor example
that lar greater sums of money are wagered
on the result of big rices on the English
race tracks than are wagered here, and that
a greater number of men there place small
fortunes on the issue ot these two and three
minute contests. The consequence is that
when we read, as we have had an oppor
tunity of reading recently, that Mr. Ernest
Benson, more generally known as Jubilee
Juggins, was quite in the habil of losing
5250,000 on a single race meeting or of win
ning an equal sum, the statement carries
with it a certain amount of surprise, and
hen he declares that tie backed Bendigo to
win 16,000, or $80,000, running in the
Jubilee stakes at Heuipton, it seems almost
incredible that a human being would stake
on i single chance money enough to carry
along a man almost in luxury tor his entire
existence. But it must not be supposed
that such performances are altogether un
paralleled. GAMBLERS TVHO BRAG.
The amount of betting generally here
may not be so creat or tor such extravagant
amounts, which are common enough in En-
. gland, but on the other hand there are a
number ot cases where juvt as large sums of
mouev have been won and lost on the turf
in Ameiica as in 3uy other country in the
world. This mar not, ot course.be a sub
ject or boast ufnes, and it is because
Americans who hate lost and won these im
mense lortunes are not in the habit of boast
ing and don't write a book anent their ex
periences that Mr. Benson's narrative of his
own career on the English race tracks has
appealed to newspaper readers with all the
fascination of romance and has. during the
past fortnight, attracted the widest kind of
commeut and attention.
The only people who tell stories of mar
velous winnings on the iurl which a ter
ward get into the newspapers are very small
plungers indeed, who win a few long shots
and then satistv their vanity by exaggerat
ing their good fortune. The men who really
win and lose big money say very little about
it. It is known lor example that Dave
Johnson, who may be seen any evening iu
the Hoffman House cafe or the lobby oi the
St. James Hotel, started in this year with
out a dollar oi his own, and begin as a book
maker with a few thousand borrowed money
kindlv loaned him by a mend in St. Louis.
Last year he ended the season dead broke.
He didn't start in this year until the Balti
more and Washington meeting, but at the
conclusion of the meeting at Sheepshead
Bay it was known that he vas a very heavy
winner on the season, and finished up with
a lortune which an ordinary business man
would look on as the
BASIS FOE A COMPETENCY.
Johnson is a tall, handsome fellow with
dark eyes and a generously proportioned
ihustacbe, straight leatures, a calm and in
deed an absolutely Imperturbable good man
ner and is always well dressed. He is to
day probably the most industrious and per
sistent plunger on the American turf. He
is a bookmaker, to be sure, but he does not
make books in the mathematical and con
servative way advocated by the mere cold
blooded representatives of his class, but
recklessly lays odds on animals which he
likes. -A bookmaker who does business
after this fashion can scarcely be called a
bookmaker at all. He is practically back
ing horses instead of laying odds against
them, and iu brier is pajing a bookmaker's
rental of about $100 a day lor the privilege
John Jlacdonald, who is also a book
maker, but oi the modern plunging kind,
has the reputation of being the most suc
cessful man who has made a book at the
various race meetings this season. He is
credited with having won at least $200,000
Eince last Jlav and many good authorities
put it up to '$250,000. These results are
qnite equal to auything that Johnson has
ever achieved but -probably do not exceed
them. It is known that one time Johnson
went down to the meetings at Baltimore and
"Washington ?68,000 behind and came away
$30,000 winner. In other words he had won
practically 5100,000 during the progress of
those two briel tureiings. Macdonald and
Dave Gideon, who has also a reputation for
plunging are understood to be at dagger
points now over a turf experience in which
they both 'figured and which is now two or
three years old.
TWO NOTED PLUNGERS.
The two most notable plungers on the
American turf during the past five years
have undoubtedly been Walton and
Bernard. "Walton and Bernard figured in
the betting ring about the same time and
were known as the plunger and the little
plunger, although when it is stated that
Bernard at one time had $100,000 on a single
race, that is to say when Gowana ran in the
Withers lour years ago, exactly where the
appropriateness of the description ot "little"
comes in is difficult to see. However, they
were kuown as "the plunger" and "the
dipper," and it is stated, and generally be
lieved, that five or six years ago Walton
left the Monmouth Park meeting at tbe end
of the season at least S50U.00U ahead. The
next year he carried this over to England
with him, or at least a great part of it, and
not only lost all the money he had, but lost
money that he didn't have at all. In fact,
he failed to meet tbe obligations he con
tracted -on English turf toward the last of
his experiences there, aud settled his losses
for 1 shilling on the pound.
The story of Bernard is as interesting as
any of them, and ends as all the others do
with practical bankruptcy of the plunger.
Bernard began about six or seven years ago
and won $150,000 in the course ot a. single
season, and with this $150,000 bought a
number ol fast horses which he ran under
the name of the Clipsiani stables. He was
remarkably fortunate, and everything he
touched seemed to turn into money. As
soon as he had become a stable owner, how
ever, his luck seemed to turn, and in a short
time he was completely wiped out.
The stories which always appear in print
toward the end of the raciug season, and
which describe the successes of small
plungers, are usually exaggerations. A
well-known business man who is popularly
supposed to be a millionaire, won a few
thousand dollars at Saratoga this summer,
and inside of 48 hours the cossius m th
track had multiplied if to J25.000, and this
story was published. This millionaire, by
the way, is one ot the fortunate beings who
put a little money on Bemsen the second or
third dav ot the Saratoga meeting aud got
"back $1,000 on a $20 when Bemsen won. The
-winner afterward stated that he had put
$10 on Bemsen besides his $20, and tne re
sulting $500 had been wou by a fellow mil
lionaire, who was lrightened to death lest
the fact of his having bet on the races
should come out. A $500 winninc on Bern-
sen, it xmiy be mentioued, was the begin- 1
ning oi we goon juck oi txwynn avomptins,
who won a good deal oi money during the
meeting, and at the end of the season pur
chased Hindoocraft and one or two other
A. FOKT0NATE TBIO.
"William Walker, Andrew Thompson and
Charles Jordan, three colored men, started
in at the West Chester meeting and won
$2,500 on JavistoD, $ti,000 nn Buperta in the
Iurclimont stakes and $6,000 on Senorita in
tWifew.Eoeaelle stakes. The trio cleared
$16,500 in that one day, and this partnership
oi colored plungers is said to have ended
the season with innings amonnting to $120,
000. Walker is about 35 rears old and nsed
to De a pretty good jockey. He rode Ten
brneck when he beat the mile record in
l:39f. When he could no longer ride he
began to train horses, and finally, procuring
a baiker, bought a small stable. The stable
this year iucluded Phoenix, Heatherton,
who was winner at Saratoga, and
B. B. Million. Now that he has
($40,000 or more, Walker says he
has had enough of the turf for the present.
He sold his horses recently and realized
$11,650. He sold B. B. Million to his
plunging partner, Andrew Thompson, for
$2,000, and disposed ot his other horses at
good prices. Thompson was also a jockey
at one time, but last year trained for J. D.
Morrissey. With his money he is going
into the business that Walker is going out
of. In other words, he is buying horses
and will own a stable next year. Charles
Jordan, the third plunger in the partner
ship, in also buying horses. He gave over
$3,000 recently lor a hall brother to Master
piece by Spendthrift. Jordan is said to be
one oi the most reckless gamblers in the
whole darkey fraternity. He bets heavily
and bets everything he has. and the conse
quence is that he is usually broke. If he
has $100 in his clothes he bets $99 and pays
$1 lor his breakfast. He has $50,000 now,
and the bookmakers say they h ive simply
loaned it to him. They expect to win it
back. H. S. Hewitt.

ART'Iff THE GAS CITY.
Growth of Intellectual Culture
Evinced by the Appreciation of
THE EXPOSITION ART GALLERY.
A Tery Creditable Exhibit by the School
GOSSIP ABOUT OUR LOCAL PAINTERS
The attendance at the Exposition gal
leries continues as large as ever, or it may
perhaps show even an increase in numbers,
and what is equally gratifying to the man
agement the expressions of approval and
appreciation are still as numerous and as
hearty. Almost all temperaments and con
ditions may be seen, and soon after the
doors are n'pened the galleries begin to fill
with people, and at 10 P. M., when the Ex
position closes, the crowds seem loath to
leave. From room to room of the spacious
galleries the throrgs move incessantly; the
young and old, the grave and gay. all seek
ing pleasure in th it highest of all 'orms in
which it is combined with intellectual
culture and improvement.
A painting that attracts a great deal ot
attention is a portrait of the late William
Shaw. The frame of the picture is draped
in black, and it occupies a prominent posi
tion, as it hangs on the line in one ot tne
galleries. It is the work of Mr. John J.
Hammer, recently ot this city but now in
New York. A perfect little gem of a water
color is the landscape by W. Hamilton Gib
son entitled "Upland Meadows." Itcombines
beautiful color with a fine effect ot sunlight
and a masterly rendering perspective. Mr.
Thomas Moran's "Towers of Colorado Biver"
is scarcely up to that artist's usual standard
of work; the coloring is a trifle crude, par
ticularly in the red tint on the clouds, and
it does not show the vigor of handling char
acteristic of his best works. Abont the same
criticism would apply to bis "A North
easter," a scene on Long Island.
NATURE LOOKS BEST IN DAYLIGHT.
Mr. George Hetzel's picture, "A Scene in
Western Pennsylvania," is quite a de
parture from that artist's usual style of
work and it is a picture that, well as it
loocs under its present conditions, would
appear vastly better if seen in daylight.
This is the case with all good pictures, but
it is particularly true of those in which
green is the predominating color, as they
suffer more than any others by being shown
in artificial light. Miss Olive Turner's
"Summer Fields" is one of her best and most
The exhibit made by the School of Design Is
very creditable so far as it goes, bat it might
easily have been made more extensive, as there
has-been some really clever work turned out
by its pupils recently that has not found a
place on the waits. As might be expected,
work In design forms an important Item in this
exhibit, and a study of some of the examples
shown would lead one to think that the Insti
tution was appropriately named, or, rather,
that it has well earned out the object for which
it was founded. Of the present exhibit, bow
ever, paintings in water color form tbe leading
feature, and there aro shown some very good
examples in this class of works, among which
Miss Mary Boya's study of annunciation lilies
deserves and receives a great deal of notice,
and is very generally admired.
A SURPRISE TO ARTISTS. '
In four of the larger of the eight rooms com
prising the galleries are gathered together,
works by American artists located In different
S arts of the country, principally in and about
lew York, aud also works by noted European
painters, such as Blco, Vibert, (Jarpentier,
Stevens and many others. On the walls of
these four rooms hang from 400 lo 500 paintings,
and tbe names mentioned above, together with
a larce number of Americans of such celebrity
as Gibson, Eaton. Hamilton, tbe Morans and
many who aro scarcely less well known to
fame, would give stauding to any exhibition at
wbicn their works were showc.
That artists whose pictures are exhibited are
well pleased at Uniting tbe display to be such
that it is a credit to them to have tbeir works
included among tbe number 1 fully evidenced
by letters which Manager Johns is constantly
receiving. One artist, a letter froju whom
came to hand yesterday morning, writes, in a
spirit of humility and self depreciation as rare
as it is commendable, that uhtn ho saw that
the balance of the collection was of such ex
cellence he was surprised to find that any ot
bis pictures had been hung. Whatever else
may be said, one thing is certain and that is
that there has never before been such a line
collection of artworks shown in this city, and

opportunities afforded them during the three

The large piece of painted tapestry shown at
Eichbaum's is the work of Mrs. M. A. Mac
cord, of Sit. Washington, who is now studying
in New York. The subject Is a female figure
reaching upward toward some blossoming
branches overhanging a wall.
The "Andromache," by Sir Frederick Leigh
ton, is certainly one of the finest paintings
which that celebrated artist has yet produced.
The composition is a fine one, and tbe large
number of figures Introduced aro excellently
well drawn, while tbe arrangement of light and
shade and of light and dark in local color is
extremelypleasing. A tine photogravure of
this work, is shown at Boj d's.
Among a large Dumber of sketches which
Mr. Geo. Hetzel has brought from tbe banks of
the Connoqnenessing is one that forms a com
plete ana most satisfactory picture just as it
was sketched from nature, and witboutany ad
ditional touches whatever. Although the same
might be said of most of Mr. Hetzel's sketches,
It is particularly true of the work in question.
The subject represents a springhouse em
bowered in trees, and in color it is one of the
strongest and richest works which this artist
has yet shown.
