Governor Harmon county i

three hours before llio closing of the
Grand Circuit race meet As a re
sult II is predicted the track may be
closed permanently
Sheriff A 1 HIrstius retired from
tho raid his pockets his hat and the
fullness of the shirt stuffed with stir
roncy and tonight a swarm of aggriev
ed bettors are looking through the
downtown section for the bcttrs
armed with tickets which have not
beon redeemed Mysteriously the
bookmakers learned at noon that a
raid was scheduled Bondsmen were
on hand to provide ball Neverthe
less at 330 oclock when the sheriff
with his deputies appeared the book
makers were in full voice and a string
of contented winners was swarming
past the little stands engaged in cash
ing in
Ilirstius boarded the first > stand I
and seized the box of money His I
chief deputy mado as quick work of
the second and twenty others rushed
down the line The bookies prompt I
ly vanished and tho ticket holders J
alarmed made hasto to the grand
stand One bookmaker seized his box
but scattered greenbacks and gold
from It In hifi flight and HIrstius and J
his assistants gathered it up The
bolting ring was cleared and those i 1
who braved tho storm to ask for their
ftioney were Informed that tho cash
would ° bc turned over to charity
The raid followed sharp Instructions
from tits joveriW that the law
against public betting be enforced It
is recognized that the belated raid
Is a serious blow at horse racing in
Cleveland Officers of the Forest City
Livestock and Fair company which
owns the Randall course are not yet
prepared to say what they will do
The racing men wore driven from I
the old Glemlllo track by tho refusal
of the city authorities to permit pool
selling and tho North Randall course i
far out In the country was built at I
large expense to avoid this tioublop
The place was organized into a vil
lage with race enthusiasts as village
officers and it was thought they would
be safe from Interruption
The local authorities are seriously
concerned over the disposition to be
made of the large sums not yet count I
ed that were seized in the raid The
sheriff says his first determination to
turn over to charity will stand and
that the winners on the first race may
frame their tickets as mementos
The failure of the sheriff to make
any arrests today was explained by
him on the ground that it was simply
desired to stop betting and not to en
ter into any prosecutions further than
that already instituted against Presi
dent Devcrcaux
A large number of the bookIes
foroftfitherert tonight at a downtown
hotel paying off all tickets offered
A number of the ticket holders how
ever had gone home discouraged be
fore the bookmakers opened their
ledgers to settle claims
A comparison of notes among the
bookmakers tonight Indicate that the
amount of money seized by the shcr
IU was much less than was sup

It transpired that the bookmakers
