Trotting Board of Review Says the
Race Was Won on Its Merits.
After an executive session lasting less than
fifteen minutes at the Murray Hill Hotel yes
terday, the board of review of the National
Trotting Association dismissed the charges
against B. R. Smathers and found that the
Memphis Gold Cup race was won on its merits.
This decision In the now famous case was
reached after a mass of testimony had been
hoard and considered by the board. The prompt
action In dismissing the . charges appeared to
meet the approval of the many horsemen pres
The race for the Memphis Gold Cup was de
cided on October 18, 11*4. Mr. Smathers. who
owned Major Palmar and drove him in the
rare, was alleged to hare been cognizant of the
"doping" of Lou Dillon, which caused the mare's
withdrawal from the race, ami the winning: of
the $."■..<«»<> cup by Major Delmar.
Mr. Smathers was present when the court
opened, and with him were his lawyers. J. J.
Adams. J. P. Wise and Edward P. Coyne, of this
city, and Carruthers Ruins, of Memphis, Term.
Millard Banders, former trainer of Lou Dil
lon, averred in an affidavit to having hnd before
the Memphis meet a number of conversations
with "Ed" Panders, a racetrack follower, who,
ho said, made propositions for the doping of the
mare, saying that he ("Ed") thought thai $5,000
or $10,000 could be pot out of Mr Smathers.
"I would not throw Lou Dillon's chances in the
rare for all the money In the world." Mlllard
Sanders swore he replied. He declared "Ed™
Banders swore later that Mr. Smathers had re
newed his offer of ".'.".P00 and no more."
Miilard Sanders then told of the race, in
which he said that during the first heat Lou
Dillon developed a severe case of thumps, that
she was brought around to the Judges' stand,
and that there she was examined by Dr. Shelter,
a veterinary, and It wa- said l>y him that the
mare might drop. She had been in good condi
tion Just lief ore the race and was all right three
days afterward.
"Eddie" Malloy, a stableman. In an affidavit,
swore that he saw Maillard Sanders administer
something to the mare out of a bottle. An affi
davit was also read signed by George Spear,
training then for Mr. Smathers, in which he
swore he had Instructions from Mr. Smathers to
undertake such negotiations as would "insure
the race to Major Delmar."
C. K. G. Billings, who owned and drove Lou
Dillon, was not present, but an affidavit was
read In which he told about the condition of the
mare before and during the race.
John S. Wise, of counsel for Mr. . athers,
cross-examined Spear, and after mixing the wit
ness up somewhat as to dates subjected him to
a gruelling questioning on his past record. He
got from Spear an admission that his affidavit
In •!. ! case was secured by meeting Murray
Howe, of Memphis, in Chicago, by appointment,
and that Mr. Magher, Mr. Blllings's personal
counsel, drew up the affidavit which he Spear,
In defence a number of witnesses testified
for Mr. Smathers. Dr. Julius W. Schiebler, a
veterinary, who examined and treated Lou Dil
lon after the race, said he did not believe the
mare wns doped, and that mercury could not
cause the condition termed thumps. He said
that he had tried many experiments since to
determine if the doping, .-is charged, could have
occurred, and was satisfied it could not. An
affiuavit was read from Edward Sanders, in
which lie denied the terms of hi* former affi
davits and stated In part:
'That the said charges are wholly and abso
lutely untrue and without foundation; that de
ponent never had any conversations or negotia
tions with said Smathers with reference to the
stopping of Lou Dillon In said contest by dope
or any other means whatever, nor did hie ever
receive one cent from said Smathers for said
In summing up Mr. Wise made a careful re
view of the case, and intimated that Mini steps
might be taken later against Mr. Billings :I nd
Murray Howe. He said, in part:
There are two inferences to be mentioned in
this case. One of them is the. innocence of Mr
' i
Fmathers and th« other that Mars have short
memories The evidence has *hown about three
versions to every story that has been told here
in connection with this tale of conspiracy? There
has been uncorroborated evidence all through
