St. IiOt w, Nov. 16. Colonel John Chinn,
Starter at the Knt St. Ixiuis Jockey club
track, was shot and, it is possible, fatally
wounded yesterday afternoon by Captain
Anthony. ronie time ago Kd Corrigan
F3at a loss to secure a person who could
pt-t the fields way in anything like re
spectable order, and asked the officials of
the Kast St. Ixniis track to allow Mr.
Chinn to officiate for them for a t.ime.Chinn
being under, contract with the Kast. St.
Louis people, which contract did not ex
pire until next summer. The East St.
liouis people con-baited to the arrangement
and installed Kit, a son of the famous
starter, at the pot, find for a. time, while
the fields were small, he did very well.
A Change That t'hian ISesentr.!.
When the Madison track closed all the
horses that had been attending that mett
ing came over to East St. Ixniis und made
the fields there so large as to make it a J
hard matter to get thera away in good j
fbape, and considerable dissatisfaction was
expressed by patrons on this account.
The managers jf the Iitst f't. Lous trick
felt that they had nrenmiidated the haw- ,
thonie people suflu-ivntly, anil so they de
manded that hp ret urn here. The turn of
itfluiis did not just exactly suit .Mr. Chinn j

good. liIUan, who was left at the post in
the fourth race, was quite heavily played
and muttered oaths were plenty. Monday
night the directors of the club held a meet
ing and it w.-.s decided to suspend Chinn
indefinitely. Yesterday morning Chinn be
gan drinking heavily and by noon was in a
very much intoxicated condition. His or
der of dismissal was made out, but he did
not show tip at the track until after the
first race was run". The club had secured
Starter Dwyer, of the Madison track, to
handle the flag, and he was in the box
ready for the second race w hen Chinn ap
peared and t'lok the f.ag away from him
and started the horses.
Assaults a Man with a Dirk.
After that Chinn went to an outhouse
and Hisgorged himself of some of the liquor
which he had imbibed. There it was that
Secretary Sinclair found him and pre
sented him with his discharge. Chinn said
that if he did not start the horses no one
else would and refused to accept the paper,
at the same time catching hold of Mr.
Sinclair's coat collar with one hand and
reaching down into his boot with the other
and drawing a hire dirk ku'fe. Two

lies with but slipht hopes of his recoverv. '
He is a magnificent specimen of physi' ;d
manhood, and when in his cups is said to ',
be very ugly. Colonel Chinn is known nil '
over the country among turf circles, and
has handled the flag at all the great trucks
of the country.
COL CH'.NN MAY RECOVER.
Anthony Shot as a Last Resort Statement
of Secretary Sinclair.
Late last night the physicians expressed
the hope that Chinn would recover. Chinn's
friends were asked to give bonds in the
sum of $3,000 for him, but were unable to
furnish it. In the meantime an officer is
on watch at the bedside of the wounded
man. Captain Anthony was not arrested,
and resumed his duties. From a frieud
to whom he talked it was learned that
he claimed that when he saw the situation
of Sinclair, knowing the desperate charac
ter of Chinn, he realized that the only way
to save the life of that oflicinl, and per
haps of several by-standers, was to shoot
Chinn, and he thereupon did so.
Sinclair Talks or the Trouble.
Secretary Sinclair was seen in his office
soon after Chinn had been taken away and
asked to give his version of the affair. "The
East St. Louis Jockey club," said Sinclair,
"has not been satisfied with the starting of
Kit Chinn and I, as secretary, was in
structed to notify Colonel Chinn of its de
termination to dispense with Kit's services
and learn whether he would return and
handle the flag until the expiration of his
contract witn the club, which expires next
