This is the first time in tho history of the International Olympic Committee that any country has had conferred upon it the "right to compete for a medal witich heretofore has been offered for Olympic events, nor are the authorities entitled to uso tho Olympic name in any connection except that iu the. announcement they may di-y that the competition is for the Olympic medal.

While that amount has been oifered for trotting; horses, and will bo guaranteed in tliN i la~s well ai by tho Exposition, tho ii,-tan-i's have been so few in to make thorn of historiinl not-; in racing records. All cla-s.es and a-;es of horses will have an opportunity of competing, and the terms of entrance arc very liberal, all entries being guaranteed a tart.
