HORSE RACING NOT A CRIME Judge Ingraham Renders a Very Important Decision IN INTEREST OF HORSEMEN Dan Creedon Defeated the Harlem “Coffee Cooler” in London in Twenty Rounds. Corbett and Fitz May Fight in Mexico. New York, Oct. 14.—Judge Ingraham, In the court of oyer and terminer, today de I elded that there was nothing in the con stitution making horse racing a crime; that no racing or running of horses Is in : violation of the law. The West Chester Racing association was to open up its first meeting at Morris park tomorrow, and to decide the legality of the Perry-Gray racing law Colonel Lawrence, president of the West Chester Racing association, was arrested last Saturday. He was charged with adver tising a lottery and maintaining a public nuisance and was taken before Magis trate Cornell, who paroled him in custody of his counsel. A writ of habeas corpus was granted by the Supreme Court Judge Ingraham, who made the writ returnable this morn ing. . After hearing the arguments this morning Judge Ingraham said the only thing he had to decide in this application was whether there was any law making proposed racing a crime and to decide whether the defendant was about to vio late the law. “In the case of Harris against White.” said he, “ it was distinctly decided that it was not a crime to hang up a purse to let horses race for it. I believe that this complaint shows no violation of the law of this state and that no crime has been committed.” May Fight in Mexico. El Paso, Oct. 14.—A report from the City of Mexico says President Diaz has directed that the Corbett-Fitzsimr. ns fight on the border is a matter for tha state government to manage, and there fore he left it with Governor Ahumada of Chihluhua.

Little Rock, Ark., Oct. 14.—The govern or today expressed himself as being thor oughly determined to prevent the prize fight at ail hazards.

The governor has no doubt of a result of a conflict between the powers. The Lumber Attached. Dallas, Tex., Oct. 14.—The Hope Lum ber company of Marshall today levied an attachment of $4000 on the lumber used and that which was to have been used on the arena which was to have been built for the fistic carnival, billed to begin Oc tober 31.

San Antonio, Tex., Oct. 14.—After a stay of nine days in San Antonio Jim Cor bett and party left tonight for Hot Springs, where the champion will resume his training until the opposition of tho officers there force him to move again. Corbett did not leave for his prospective field of battle in the best of spirits. He stated Just before his departure that he believed the move was an unwise one, and he has no confidence in the state ments that the fight will be pulled off at Hot Springs and that protection is guar anteed. "In my opinion,” said he, "I will find Arkansas no better a place than Texas in which to fight, and I am still of the belief that the only choice of meeting Fitzsimmons in the ring in this country is for both of us to go to some quiet spot, where there will be no interference.” Children Cry for Pitcher’s Castoria.

The last half was made in 1:04% a 2:09 gait; the last quarter in 1:33 a 2:04 gait. Another world's record was broken in the 2:06 pace, as there developed a result of the only instance when flve horses earned money out of a race where only four moneys were given, as Rachel, Vera Capet and Direction divided third and fourth money. Guenette won second quite handily by finishing three times second to Star Pointer. Geers drove the three winners in to day’s events, and with Boreal in the Kentucky stakes liis hand had much to do with the viqtory. On form Boreal was hardly regarded in the contest, but he developed high rating In the stamina test. Oakland, Baron and Fred Kohl fought a battle to the half in two heats. Kohl won two heats and Killona one, and Geers, who had been hireling the track well behind, showed up next to and outposted Oakland Baron home in 2:16%. Though defeated, by no means was he disgraced, as every inch of the five heats was he an active contestant, figuring in the fray as long as he re mained in the race, forcing Fred Kohl to earn his best record of 2:12%, and it was the fight of Fred Kohl and Oakland Baron Ih%t gave Boreal the race.
