The events in the handicap meeting on Holmes Field yesterday afternoon went off very smoothly, without much delay, the games being over almost at the time set on the schedule. While no records were broken, yet the events were, for the most part, closely contested and interesting. The number of entries in the events, especially the runs, was large but some of the men in each event failed to appear on time and were thus disqualified. The attendance was very small and the few who appeared on the benches at the beginning of the games gradually dropped off, till at the end the raw, cold wind had left only a very few.
