His Quarrel With the Coney Island Joekey Club in the Supreme Court. The Notorious Bully Asserts That He gas Some Honor to . Maintain., Declines to Best Under the Stigma-His Grlevance Against the Racing Club-Sporting News. NEw Yoax, Oct. 15.--No one boasting an intimate aequaintanceship with Edward Corrigan was at all surprised to learn that he had no intntion of 'eknowledging him-' self defeated by the Coney Island Jockey club without making another struggle for victory. A good many. charges have been laid at Mr..Corrigan's door within the past dozen years, but no one has ever yet said that he was of a forgiving disposition or that he would enjoy what he himself would term "getting a shade the worst of it." With these facts in view, sporting men generally were pretty fairly prepared for the announcement that Mr. Corrigan had carried his woes to the supreme court and had asked that tribunal to settle the dispute between him and the Coney Island Jockey club. His treatment by the club has ran kled in his cool sorely, and he has vowed many a time and oft that he would "do" the organization in the end if such a thing were possible. Corrigan's grievance is well known. He wanted his colt Huron in the Futurity, and the Jockey club decided that the horse could not start in the race upon the ground that he had been withdrawn. This state ment was denied by the owner, who ob tained an injunction from Judge McAdams, of the superior court, which restrained the club from preventing Huron's running. Huron ran in the Futurity, and to such good advantage that he passed under the wire second, but his speed did his owner no good, for the club refused to pay the-soo ond place money. Not satisfied with this, the club ruled all of Mr. Corrigan's horses off its tracks for all time. That was the last straw, and Corrigan hurried into the supreme court as fast as his lawyers could get him there. He began a suit which, if it is successful, will nullify the club's decision and enable him to run his horses on the club's track just as often as he chooses to putup the entrance money. The papers in the case have already been served upon Secretary Fellows, who took them and .sexiled audibly. . Mr. C.orrigran' affirms 'through his com plaint thait he is a race-horse owner and that his running stock is valued at $100, 000. He says that :he has been at great pains toget his horses together and hinto :copdition,.and that he'will be subjected to a heavy loss in the event of the club being permitted to keep him from enjoying the rights of its track. Nor, he says, is it a money consideration alone that induces him to bring the suit. He has his honor to maintain, and the club's action has thrown a stigma upon him, un der which he declines to rest tamely. He also says that he will be injuriously affected on all race tracks in the vicinity because, he affirms, the Coney Island. New York, Brooklyn and American Jockey clubs and the Monmouth Park. Racing association have, for the purpose of oppression and coercion, and to form a monopoly to pre vent opposition, confederated together un der the title of the board of control, and that,. consequently, he need look for no favors or courtesies where they rule. Mr. Corrigan says that this order of the board of control, that none of his entries should be accepted by any of its clubs, was arbitrary and unwarranted. He wants to mnake his entries for the spring meeting of the Coney Island Jockey club, which will close Jan. 15, 1892, and he wants the court to help him get there. He saRs in his oom plaint, and he says it plaintively, that he only wants the privileges accorded to every other person. Corrigan is in Chicago now, but his law yers here say that he is going to make the fight of his life, and that means a good deal. for Corrigan has had many big fights of all kinds and descriptions, both legally and literally.

SzATTLr, Wash., Oct. 15.-William O'Connor, the oarsmen, received a displitch from Sydney saying that Stanebury had left for San Francisco accompanied by eoeah. O'Connor is of the opinion that Stansbury is coming here in response to a challenge made by him and Hanlan two months ago to row against Stansbury and any othe oersman of the world in three races, one a double scull for the champion ship of the world, which is now heldhby O'Connor pnd Hanlan, and the other two being single, O'Connor to row against Stansbury for the world's championship, and Hanlan to row Stuanbury's mate. O'Connor is very anxious to have another go at Stansbury for the championship of the world and says he will give the Austra lian his own terms. "I am only too glad to hear that Stans bury is coming," said O'Connor to-night,. "and I think he should give me another chance for the championship. If he does it will be the first time in the history of aquatics that a race for the world's cham pionship has been rowed in American waters. Hanlan went to England to win the championship, and then went to Australia to lose it. I have cone to England and Australia to try for it; now let the Australians reciprocate and give us achance to win it back. O'Connor is of the opinion that Teenier, will row with Stansabury if a double race is arranged, as Beach is out of active work and will probably come only as Stansbury's manager. O'Connor is so confident of get ting a race that he will leave for San Fran cisco to-morrow and make arrangements for having Stansbury met there on his ar rival by Hanlan, while he goes east to have new boats made. .e is willing to row the race at San Francisco within two months if Stansbury so desires.
