A Bill Modeled Iho rorer-Omy low Intro dared nt Tronlou. TnKVTOjf, S. J March 11. In tho Houso this afternoon there was soma commotion when Mr. Armbruster of Hudson county Introduced a rac ing bill. Its title Is: "An net for tho Incorpora tion of associations for Improving the breed of li'irres, to regulate the snme, nnd to establish a htntc Racing Association." After providing for thnorganlxatlon of such nso lotions, tho bill authorizes tho holding of rinooriuoro trotting or running meetings each ytnr. At ich meetings the corporations or ii u tiers of horses engaged In such races, or others who ure not participants In the races, miy contribute purses, prizes, fee, to be con tested for, but no person other than tho owners of horses contesting In a rnco shall hnv o any pe cuniary Interest In Iho pursesorprlres. The race meetings maybe hold only between April lSJnml Nov. 15, and for not more than forty days In such period. Tho Governor Is authorized to appoint a Btato Racing Commission of three members for a Ave cars' term, no two of whom shall balong to tho somo raring association. Their exponses. Including tho salary of a secre tary, nro not to exceed 55,000 n j cor, and nro lo bo paid hy the several rnclng associations In the Ktuto on an apportionment by tho Btate Comptroller.

There Is little (ham oof it passing, but Its Introduction Is said to bo Intended In test public opinion on the rnc lng question, Thero Is nu doubt that n great mnjoritv of tho people would llko to see tho Monmouth Park track reopened. Another story Is that tho Introduction of tho Racing bill Is In tended to frighten the Republican mombers of tho House into adopting tho antl gambling amendment to thn Constitution this year, ana along with It tho Voorhces Judiciary amend ment, so that tho voto of the peoplo may lie had on the amendments this year, thus keeping the pledge made to tho church peoplo In 1893. The adoption of the Johnson Judiciary amendment would mean another year's delay. In the Houso this morning concurrent resolu tions were introduced proposing tho Johnson Judicial- amendment nnd the woman suffrage, antl gambling, and ad-Interim appointment amendments tothoConetltutlonreadopted by the Scnato yesterday.

On tho con trary, wo find that thn aforesaid ofllclals hnv o performed all their duties in theso matters In nn honest and painstaking manner worthy of tho praise of every law-abiding citizen of tho United States. We further find that tho conduct of Inspector J. Thomas ScharlT In making such serious charges In his otlldal capacity against Government officers, without, oa he admits under oath, any evidence. Is In the highest degroo rep rehensible, nnd should be severely censured. And as these charges against the aforesaid ofll clals have been mado public through the press, it seems to us, tho Orand Jury, not only proper but Just that the Innocence of said officials should bo mado public also.
