BELLEVUE WILL APPEAL , Trustees Declare Cour Ruling Aids "Ambulance Chasers." James K. Pa.ulding, secretary of the board of trustees of Bellevue and Allied Hospitals, gave out a statement last night in regard to a recent decision by Justice Erlanger in the Supreme Court that an employe of a hospital might give informa tion to a lawyer in regard to the condition of a patient, and that the employe might accept a gratuity for giving such informa tion without in any way violating the law. The trustees of Bellevue intend to appeal from that decision, and the statement given out last night says in part: "The effect of this dec!*ion, unless re versed, will be to expose all patients in the free public hospitals who are the victims of accidents to the persecutions of the 'ambulance chaser." It was to safeguard them from this class of attention that the trustees adopted the rule forbidding the giving of information by hospital employes. "The trustees believe that a patient in a public hospital has the same right as one in a private hospital, whose records are held inviolate. They recognize his right to consult a lawyer to bring action in his name for damages in an accident case, and i they desire to do everything within their : power to facilitate access to a patient by a ' reputable' lawyer, and to prevent the snap ping up of all such cases by lawyers of the 'ambulance chaser' type. "If T represent in this matter the opinion of the trustees, an appeal ■will be tair°n from the decision of Mr. Justice Brlang-er." BIG LIGHT ANT) POWER CO.

INTERESTING RACES RULE Sport Exceeds Anything Which Has Been Seen on the Drive This Season. Speedway sport yesterday morning far exceeded anything, seen on the drive this season. The interest of the day centred |in the match race between Christopher Hackett's good little Who Knows, 2:11%. and James Murphy's Coast Marie. 2:11>4- Supremacy between the two horses has never yet been decided, for If the mare has won one week, Who Knows has come right back at her the next and wrested the laurels from the mar©. Who Knows was going like clockwork yesterday, and. while Coast Marie was good, she was not quite strong enough to beat Who Knows. The first heat was so close that excitement ran high as the two reared the post, neck and neck, and when Who Knows stretched out his nose ahead of the mare a cheer went up from the crowd. The next heat Who Knows won by a safer margin, but it was a race from start to finish, and every Inch of ground was hotly contested. *?•. Another series of brushes which proved quite as interesting was that which brought out William Scott's brown mare Louise S ., 2:llAi. and Thomas B. Leahy's black pacer Princess Direct, 2:14*4. Mr. Scott made a splendid drive In the first heat and de feated the Princess, but she recovered her laurels in the next tilt, which was so close that it might have been called a dead heat. Only those in a direct line with the finishing post were able to say "Prin ■ cess Direct by a nose.*" Theodore W. Bassett's dear little Miss Ebzle won as many brushes yesterday as any horse on the drive. Three times sim came down the stretch with Charles Horn's Bobby H. and three times he was forced to concede defeat. John Farley sent his big brown gelding Legannon to make the final brush three cornered, and he finished last. Fitzgerald, a bay pacer, which appeared on the drive last week, won two brushes with William O'NelH'6 Lady Tasteful for an op ponent. After finishing last In a three cornered brush which brought out Dandy C. O. and Ulrich, M. C. Reynolds's Dr. Threet put a number of brushes to his credit He defeated his' erstwhile victor. Dandy C. 0.. twice defeated Thomas Lan son's Ci Shelton and ohce finished ahead of Dr. Ferster's Llllie Wilkes. Gus Osborne had Fandango. 2:17 1 4, James Murphy's old Speedway pacer, out on the drive, but he Insisted on coming down with H. B. Clarke's black trotter Joe Jap. which does not make a sporting combination in a race. However, after Fandango had had things all his own way in a coupl^ of brushes. Joe Jap got his spunk up and gave him a decided beating in the final heat- Joe Jap had one brush with Trixey H . but he broke at the finish and the mare claimed the race. Among the newcomer to the drive was one called Toby Axtel, owned by William Stoelrzing. who cleared up the Brooklyn Speedway and then looked for other worlds to conauer. He made bis Inroads in the ranks of the trotters yesterday and lost only a single brush, and that by a nose. In his first brush he measured strides with a pacer, and he defeated the side -wheeler. making a notable victory. His competitor was George G-rinsrer's roan gelding Ulrich. After this" he twice defeated Philip Heiper hSuten's chestnut mare Lemon Girl in easy fashion His one defeat was accomplished by ElHot B . 217^. a bay trotter, owned by E Benson.- who carried him to a break at the finishing post. ■ .
