swindle of fenturday, tho falsification ot
tiro result of tho Jerome Park rat'os, b
whiclr pool sellers throughout tho conntrx

smicydttd swindle of tho kind ei
pcrpetrstcd in flris country. ll

mtta about $2bfi00 waa lost by the pool
uutlersi at 1 si a ml. A lingular, and,
to those who bold a certain tlreory as to
tho authors of tho Bvrindlo, a significant
iavA is tiiut tlws bookmakers of this city

for tiro KLccs at Jerouro lark wero good

the Uieory advanced by Bevcritl

cant fttrd ttnda to bear oat (hat theory. lf

That tho telegraphic company did not interfere
with tire success of tho fraud is
manifest from the fact that tho reports
from tiio races manipulated went
through as tho gamblers wished.
They worked tiro last two
races through the jockeys, presumably
because their bores before tire races, Con-stamina
and MrOownn, did win anil they
did rrot treed to tamper with the wires or

Nkw Yoiik, OcU 15. The tanping of
the wires of the Western Union Telegraph
Company on Saturday, by moans of which
bogus despatches were sent all over the
country announcing fain results of the
Jcromo Park races, and through which
nearly $100,000 was lost by the ko1 sellers
throughout the countrv, remains as
much a mystery as ever Little sympathy
is felt for the vfetnui.ed pool tollers by
the public at lare, owing to the enormous
odds linked by them on tvrum

to protect its business lrom such swindles
"What do you think of the threat of tho
victiumed pool sellers to sac the company
"That is all idle talk. Tire coin (may
can not be held responsible for such an up
set, any more thuti it could for having had
aent over its wires n forced dispatch.'
"What is your theory as to the manner
in which tho swrnuio was curried out?"
"The wires were undoubtedly tapped,
probably horn ' some nrivato residence
in this city and the genuine
dispatches taken oil und converted
into bogus one. Tho operator at Jerome
Park has been . the position for a number
of years and the entire coutidence
of the coirpany und wo have no reason to
stiHect that he was iu the piot. Tho tapping
hIiows conclusively that some one

"Incuse tho rascals are discovered, what

"Prosecute them to tho iiiil extent or
