THE HERALD'S SPORTING NEWS FUTURE OF RACING IN SOUTH IS DECIDEDLY UNCERTAIN, SAYS ROSE PRINCIPAL STOCKHOLDER IN LOCAL ASSOCIATION GOING TO FRISCO TO INVESTIGATE CONDITIONS THERE Asserts There Will Be No Attempt Made to Resume Sport Here Before Next Winter and Adds That It May Not Be Tried Then Unless He Finds Oral System Working Satisfactorily at Emeryville as Regards Public Favor and Attendance. May Experiment with Thirty-Day Meeting One Year from Present Time JAY DAVIDSON ARRIVAL yesterday of George Rose, principal stockholder in the Los Angeles Racing association, definitely settled all doubts regarding any effort at opening Santa Anita park for a race meeting before next winter, as he declared positively that no such effort would be made before next Thanksgiving day. There is no certainty at this time that racing ever will be resumed at Santa Anita park, according to Rose, as all depends upon the success of the meeting now in progress at Emeryville and the construction which the courts may place upon the Walker-Otis bill and the man ner in which oral betting is regarded by the courts in test cases that have arisen or may arise later. Rose says that he hopes the Emery ville meeting, under the oral betting system, will prove such a success that lie and his associates will te justified in trying the experiment - An ita park next winter for a period of probably thirty days. However, lie has been operating at Juarez a!l winter, ! and is not informed fully regarding the ' (success of the system at Oakland. He | is en his way to Ban Fran:i»co. and : ■will investigate thoroughly into condl- I tions and see for himself just how the I patrons of the sport are regarding the i new order of things. Then he will be In a position to make positive an nouncement as to plans for next winter j tor a meeting at Santa Anita. "We hope that the patronage at Em- < eryville is proving sufficient under Hie new order of things to Justify us in | trying tho experiment here next win ter," lie said last night. "If the season at Emeryville shows that the attend- j ance is sufficient to pay the running j expenses Of the meeting, or even close to it, we will take a ohani c for thirty : days next winter at Santa Anita park to test the system here. The stock holders are so anxious to keep the sport going that they would not object to running a short meeting even at a loss if in doing so the sport would be re established here. In making the ex perimental test we understand thor oughly that the patrons of the sport in the past are not acquainted with the workings of the new system, as a rule, and that it is impossible to predict ac i urately just how they will accept the new order. However, if the attend ance should prove sufficient to pay the running expenses, or within $10,000 or JiO.WJO of it, we would regard the ex periment as a success and look to the future with much confidence." Praises Juarez Management Rose is profuse in praise of the man agement of the Juarez meeting, and expresses little doubt of the ultimate success of the efforts of Messrs. Winn, Follansbee, Terrazao and their associ ates to establish racing upon a. perma nent basis in Mexico. He says that the attendance at the races will average l'rom 1000 to 1500 persons daily, and that it is increasing in a manner that indicates better things for the future. "The plant at Juarez is modern in every particular, and is one of the handsomest west of New York. The management is planning tn spend an WINTER BASEBALL CITY LEAGUE THERE will be an important meet ing of the directors of the Ctty league Thursday night, when sev eral protests will be disposed of. The first business to come before the league will be the protested game between the Wlelanda and the Fraternal Aids. The University Merchant! and the Southern ; Pacifies also will settle, their dispute of' a few weeks ago over an. alleged foul ball. President Perkins has decided to offer two Goldsmith baseballs to tha manager or player of any club In the City league who answers the following puzzle which was put to him the other | day: "There are three men vn the b and none out. The batter hits the ball It is not a safe hit and there is no error made, three runs score and ther are two assists and a putout on the play. How." Mott Larkey, second baseman of the ■University Merchants and captain of the Los Angeles high school team, is rounding the hilltop players into con dition for the interacholastlc series which will open shortly. Tommy Ybarrando, the fast little St. Vincent college player, is playing thu name of his life with the University Merchants, and at tho present time is leading in the batting column of that club. The Manchester team has broke its hoodoo. Last Sunday it defeated tho railroaders and never gave the Espee men a free pass. Treasurer Ash, also manager, of tha Modern Woodmen team, is thinking of challenging tho Japanese ball club the first off Sunday in his schedule. Roy Myers, pitcher for the University Merchants, and Ybarrando make two of the best amateur mound artists in the City league. These boys have shown wonderful improvement during the last few years and will bear watohing. It is rumored that Manager Phillip Hartenatein of the Wieland team has lift a piece of real estate he owns that he will finish among the topnotchers during the present series. Keep the good work up, Hartenstein. The Yeomen entertainment and dan<r, which was given this week for the benefit of the baseball team, brought in a large sum which will go to purchas ing new uniforms for the club, formerly known as the Southern Pacifies. There Is some talk already of reor ganizingl the City League, and in all probability the. next series will be played with ten clubs. John Hasemipr, formerly of the Ver non Avenue school, will be relief rate her for the Manchester Traders. Catcher Duncan will take a short va- enormous amount of money in the next year in making Improvements and In beautifying- the plant. They are a same ; lot of sportsmen, and are enthused at I the prospects for future success. Not withstanding the adverse weather con ditions there this winter, which the na ■ tell me is the most severe winter i in many years, the management lias | gone ahead with racing and will run : out its allotment of days, with a prob j able exti nslon in March. Weather Was Unbearable "The weather was unbearable for a 1 few days last month, and racing was called off during the most severe peri -1 od. Snow and ice and cutting winds ! made it unwise to attempt to race, ami I horsemen were afraid to risk their ! horse? upon the frozen track. All of ' us stayed indoors most of the time, but I this blizzard lasted only a few days, j and everything became lovely again ! when it passed. Racing was resumed, and it has been of improved order i since. The track also was benefited, as the improved going and the remark- i ably fast time made there last week I proves. It is one of the fastest tracks on the continent. "Juarez is ideally located at the gate way to the southwest, and if weather j conditions do not interfere next winter the sport will be much improved over that of this year. With the sport es tablished and horsemen imbued with confidence that the season will be com pleted as announcel, I expect to see many more eastern horsemen racing there next winter than is now the case, and with them will come horses of the best class. The men who are backing the enterprise .with their money are good game sportsmen, and deserve the success which I feel assured will be theirs in the future." Rose Is accompanied by Mrs. Rose, and they will visit here for several days, leaving Saturday evening fur San Francisco. He does not know yet whether he will get into the oral bet ting game up there, but will do so if it looks good to him. His principal mis sion will be to investigate conditions there and decide therefrom whether it will be safe to try to run an experi mental season here next winter. He la of the opinion that Los Angeles will support it if San Francisco can do it. His opinion will govern, of course, as he is the controlling stockholder, and he will act as President Tom Williams advises in the premises. cation, going to the San Berdoo moun tains on a hunting and fishing trip. Giants Club Reorganized Rejuvenation of the Los Angeles Giants has been effected and that or ganization will start a new career un der a new name, with new uniforms and with fnur new players who hail from Sii Antonio, Tex. Henceforth the former Giants will be known as the Los Angeles Trllbys, and the elct) will be governed by a trio of managers, J. I White, the former manager of the Giants; Charles Moore and P. D. Buck. Pltchei Mooney, one of the new ones, made a Kood record with the Bronchoa of San Antonio, the past season. Money is considered the best colored twlrler in the Lone Star Btate, "Baby" Webb is another of the same club that comes well recommended. He is a utility player. His brother, 4.AVebb, will hold down the second cushion for the new j organization, and he also was a former Broncho. Last, but not least of the new ones, is Otto Bolden, the Imported 200-pound backstop, from the i . Texas (ity. White, speaking of the fu- i ture plans of the team last evening;, said: "We will claim the western col ored championship and will defend it against all coiners. The Occidentals have no claim to this title because, ' when they defeated the Los Angel* c Giants and claimed the honor, they were playing three white men in their lineup.'' Here is an opportunity for a cloudy mixup that should bring out every smoked fan in Southern Cali fornia. Manager Pete Hanseh of tli«' Dyas- Cline team in the Trolley league is looking for a crack right-handed twlrl er. Apply at McCormick'l [juol hall or answer through The Herald. Bernic McKay, captain of the Oak lands, has been offered the management of the Mobile team in the Cotton States league. Should he accept this offer he will take with him Art Hensling of the Vernon heaving staff. Bernie i.s well known in Los Angeles. At the opening of the last college baseball season he coached the St. Vincent team. Manager Andrews of the Gateway! In the Trolley league failed to put in his appearance at McCormick's last night with the hundred bones that ho offered to wager the Giants last Sunday. An drews made the proposition that the Giants ami Gateway! play a match' game at Chutes park next Sunday for a tide bet of $100, both parties to put up the money at the McCorniU-k pool room. Manager White was theru with tho roll, but it is supposed that the new addition to the lineup of the col ored team put a quietus on the betting ambition of the Gateway manager.

' NEW SUBDIVISION STREETS MUST CONFORM WITH OLD Council Takes Action Looking to Regular Lines of City Tho. roughfares The streets end alley* of all new subdivisions must conform to the streets and alleys of existing subdi visions before they will be accepted by the council. This policy was adopted by the council yesterday and it means tliat there, will be no more jogs in streets. The city attorney was in structed to prepare an ordinance mak ing tiiis policy of the council a law. • The matter was brought to the atten tion of the council when the city en gineer presented two maps Of subdi visions for the council to approve. Councilman Washburn was under the impression that there was an ordinance in effect compelling all new streets to conform to existing lines and was much surprised when told by Deputy Wilson that such was not the case. .1. \V. Johnson, assistant city engi neer, told the council that the engi neer's department tried 'to have the streets conform in every case where 4t was possible before the maps were approved by the engineering depart ment, but said Mr. Johnson: "We have found that when we bear down too hard on tract subdividers they record their own streets as private rights of way and the council has no Jurisdiction over the matter at all." Councilman Plant said the city could force these subdividers to come to time by refusing to lay water mains, sewers aiid other necessary utilities in any thing but public streets or "alleys, and Deputy Wilson declared this could be legally done. He was instructed to in clude this provision in the ordinance. Mr. Johnson objected that it was the man who purchased the. lot from the subdivide!- who would be the loser, as he would not know that the street was not a public street. "It's his business to know," said President Works, sternly. "This coun cil Is not a charitable institution for the benefit of private property owners. We •11 •■ hare for the benefit of the city as a whole."

UTILITIES ORDINANCE HAS SLIGHT DEFECT Commission Suggests that Council Remedy Trouble in Regard to Time for Making Report The practical working of the public utilities ordinance adopted by the peo ple at the last general election is prov ing the ordinance deficient in the time limit fixed foi- reports of the public utilities commission, but this can easily be remedied if the council adopts the suggestion the utilities commission made yesterday. The ordinance gives the commission ten days in which to report on appli cation! for franchise*, or such further time as may be granted by the council. The commission suggests that in fu ture, when franchises are referred for consideration, the council then allow thirty days' time for the commission to make its investigation. Because of this limited time the com mission had to ask time extensions -yes terday on several franchises that have been referred to it. It declared that it considered the policy of selling fran chises for *100, irrespective of their value, that had been followed by pre vious councils, as ill advised, and the council thought so tod. This commission was given more work to do and thirty days in which to do it when the ordinance granting rail way franchises on Alpine, between Buena Vista and San Fernando, and on Melrosc, from Heliotrope drive to Nor mandie avenue, which had been vel 1 by the mayor, were referred to it for further investigation.

While the subject of his confirmation was under idiscussion Councilman Plant asked if it was legal lor Mr. Lippincott to serve on the park commission and as assistant engineer of the aqueduct at the same time.
