Mr. Keene's chief activity Jn specu

He took charge of pools in Sugar, Na

lyn Rapid Transit, Tobacco, Metropoli

quiring much unwelcome notoriety out
of the Hocking pool. He was accused
of "working both ways." In
other words, he was accused
of breaking faith with his pool associ

lation of his understanding with them.
He denied this under oath, stating that
he played square with the syndicate
that he was employed to manage and
that he had not unloaded his own stock
on the unsuspecting insiders. Later Mr.
Keene compromised the suits started

time and of losing vast fortunes at an
other. Fomonii As Horse Owner.
It was perhaps as a horseman that
the financier was best known to tha
public at large. From 1905 to 1909 his
colors each year headed the list of win
ning owners by a wide margin, while
his Castleton stud, in addition to fur
nishing practically all of his horses in
training, sent many another famous
race horse to the races.
It was in 1907 that the Keene sta
ble reached the zenith of Its success.
Mr. Keene's total winnings during that
ear are said toihave reachedthe prince
ly sum of $400806 a world's record.

figures, with the solitary exception of
1909. when the purses had been greatly
reduced because of the adverse legis

Five times Mr. Keene's colors were
first in the Futurity and five times did
the Brooklyn handicap go to a Keene
horse. Besides these notable victories,
his colors were victorious in most of
the other racing fixtures in and about
