OF THE o PER CENT TAX ANO A I'ltOVISlON TO PREVENT KVASIONS 0? THE LAW. i Albany. Feb. 17 -The State Raring Commission, eompo?~l of August Belmont. Edwin I?. Morgan ail John Sanforl. presented to the Legislature to nlghl Its Brat annual report. It Is an exhaustive document, dealing in detail with the practical operation of the G.-ay-Percy law and concluding with su, h recommendations as experience has sug? gested for its perfection. Two of these recom? mendations will undoubtedly be the subject of legis? lation. The first Will be an amendment of Section Ii of tiie present Isw, so that it may be possible for lh?? several ra ing associations to discriminate In j ?, h?? prli-er of admission they may charge to certain ' por'i .us of th-ir grounds where certain privil?ges may be enjoyed, providing always, of course, ?hat these privileges are not contrary to law and do not contemplate pool-seBIng or bo>kmiking. The sec ond amendment will be desigTieJ to make impos Bible In future any stich r't'empt to violate the law ! as that which was designed by l>e Lscy and others In th. Maspeth bogus fair of last fall. In accordance With a strong letter addressed to ? them by th,? Coney island Jockey Club, the lirook- j lyn Jockey Club and the Westehester Racing Asso- i ? dation, rh?? Commission recomm? nJs that the Legls- , latore should lighten the burdens imposed by th? Btate tax of E per cent on th? gross receipts, to the IXt? t si least thai su .rh tax shall neither create nor Increrse s ?!? ?1 It. The Commission sugge?;* some ilternatlve propositions on the subject, but It is understood thru, v.hil" it concedes the argument of the associations, It ?? ?es not feel called upen to Introduce legislation In the matter. From the tone of the report it may be ?? spted that the commis? sion will content itself with a mer.? report and rer ommendatlon on thla subject, an?J will then allow it to be entirely il the discretion of the Legis? lature, a itrong feature of the report is contained rn th,. appended copy of the Judgment! of the several ? In whl :h the ? ?natltutlonallty of the law was upheld. It is ,? neal compliment to the wisdom of j the !.??.- dature of Ilio, and brings forcibly to the , ittentlon ot the present House the fact that the j have decided thst h ?rs? racing and sweep- j sink?- SI lotteries, ar. ! thst the < Ir.iy-l'er, y I bill Ii well wlthbi the constitutional inhibition j agrii:,?: gambling, The repon says In part: Tii?? ?
