CRESCEUS IS NOW THEJTURF KING Ho Wins tho Race at Btighton Beach Distancing: tho Abbott in Second Heat. Hi Ivelmlie Wire from The Asaiclited ProM New Voik, Aug. 15. The Hotting In tciosts of tho l'mplic city have not le eched suih a boom In a (matter of a centiuy as was developed today at the Brighton Heaih Hack when, under the auspiies of the New York Tiottlng as sociation, the champion stallion and thamploii gelding, Ciesieus and The Abbott, came together for a puisp of Jl.'.OOO. The Abbott with his teiotd of L'0l'( of last season, and Ci esc ens with bis .it.ii k of -0.'i4, made at Columbus, wote to det Ide the question ot whlih one was ti go down In history as the fastest tiotltyK hoise now living. Theie was a laiger ciowd picspnt than was iver .sppii on a New Yotk tiottlng ti.it k. The giand stand wis simply p u krd and this, despite th fact that resolved seats with admission cost ?l, while boes holding four poi sons were all disposed of at $".0 eaih, lit addition to the tegular admission. While tin seating eapailty Is but 3,000, It was undoubtedly a fact that clone to fi.imo prisons weie Jammed Into the st 1 111 tin o.

It was estimated that l'.iKii piople weie present. The weather was simpy poifcct for the gnat I1l.1l and the tiaik was like vohit, though piobablv a stiond slow. M'viial times dining tho al let noon both hoi sos put In some piellinlnary woik, and p.n It time they passed the ciowd there was giett enthiisalsm It was about Ii 10 n'llnik when the dilvets, Ketiham and (leeis, appeared at the giand stand and obtained their positions lor a start by the Hip of a coin lank was with tho diher of Cipsiius as he set tiled the pole, and a di 1 Ided advantagi, whin two hoi sos so 111 nl oqu il in point of leionl aie lonsideicd. When, a little latei, the hoi sos 1 a me ft 0111 the paddock thev wrie wildly iheeud. anil they looked fit for the work befoie them. Vortu-iiatelv-, loo, the wind had died down to a dead tabu, so theie was no obsta cle In that lino.

Th net time down thev weie nose and nose. Then Ciesieus pushed to the fiout and had a lead ot a length, width ho hold to tho iiuntei, making that lunik In .nl. This lead The Abbot had slightly mluied nt the half, whlih was leadied In 1 01'i, and he was a vi tv 1 lose snond at the tluee iU liter polp, In 1 3JU. The v.ibt tiowd loalU.ed that a w 01 Id's loioid was about to be made, and the giaud Htand niose to Its teet, while the mul titude, which was In the spine bptwpon the stand and the u.uk, ihoeud wild h.
